thursdaythunksThey pick a subject and I interpret it how I want. So this week…

  1. You are walking down the road and you look down. There is a bug. Do you step on it? – No, absolutely not, bad karma.
  2. What is one fantasy that you want to come true more than any other? – No, you aren’t going to get me to admit that, not in polite company anyway….
  3. Someone knocks on your door. Do you look out the window to see who it is before you open it? Do you open it regardless of who it is? – Well our door is at the side of our town house and the accessible windows are at the front, so I either entirely ignore the doorbell and have a sneaky look as they’re walking away, or I go downstairs to open what is a glass door, so by that time they’ve seen me too and I can’t get away with anything other than opening it. But mostly I just hide in an antisocial way.
  4. Have you ever eaten Play Doh? – No but my brother has (he’s 41 now so I can say these things without fear of retribution)
  5. What was your favourite Saturday morning cartoon as a child and why? – Tom and Jerry, closely followed by Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck; I liked the absurdity.
  6. Are you a “people watcher”? – Oh yes….. and I have the restraining orders to prove it.
  7. I have a bowl of fruit. There are apples, oranges and pears. You help yourself to one – which one do you choose? – Apples every single time. Pears at a pinch. Never oranges; I don’t like the texture.
  8. What is your pet peeve in the blogging world? – All the shorthand stuff – YMMV, for example, but mostly LOL – yes definitely LOL. I’m the kind of person who writes text messages in full sentences with proper punctuation.
  9. What is one religion that you could just never see yourself joining? Any of them.
  10. What word do you use far too often? – Cool
  11. How long do you spend in the shower? – Depends on how slow and tired I am but probably 15 minutes; it’s a good place to think about work.
  12. If you were to write a personal ad about yourself what would it say? – A variation on the profile in my sidebar (presumably without the happily married bit) but honestly I can’t see myself doing it at all.
  13. Your favourite flavoured soup is – carrot & butterbean, closely followed by pea & ham – Baxters, obviously.
  14. You are sitting on a bench in the park and a bug walks in front of your feet …. do you squash him? – In the unlikely even that I noticed him at all (because I’d probably have my nose in a book) I would let him be – see the bad karma thing mentioned above.
