So, I got one of these 'tell us about you e-mails'. Secretly, I like getting these, because I like to see what my friends have to say, but I know that lot of people don't like getting them, so I never forward them on via e-mail, and therefore never fill them out..
Anyway, today I thought I'd post my answers to my blog. This way, I don't upset anyone. :)
1. LAST MOVIE YOU SAW IN A THEATRE?
Once upon a time in Mexico. Yesterday.
2. WHAT BOOK ARE YOU READING NOW?
I'm not reading now. I'm typing the answers to these questions..
I'm half-way through about 4 or 5 books at the moment. I don't read much these days that isn't online. The last one I started was Down and Out in Paris and London by Orwell, mostly finished it. The last one I've been reading some of most recently is The Fire Dragon by Katherine Kerr.
This doesn't include 'technical books' which I read more regularly, I'm 'half-way' through about 10 of these at the moment. The last one that I sat down and read from cover to cover was Design Patterns by GoF. The books on my desk *right at this very moment* are Design Patterns by GoF (open on Command pattern pg 233), Inside C# by Archer and Whitechapel (open at 'When Not to Use Threads' pg 632), No Logo by Naomi Klein (looked up some stats recently), .NET Enterprise Development in C# by Reynolds and Watson, The C Programming Language 2nd Edition (ANSI C) by Kernighan and Ritchie (on programming style.. ;). Mostly I read things online.
3. FAVOURITE BOARD GAME?
Traditionally Monopoly. Although the LOTR board game I played recently totally kicked arse. If only I had taken my cloak and staff.
4. FAVOURITE FLOWER?
I don't care for flowers.
5. FAVOURITE SMELL(s)?
Cigarette smoke on sheep skin. Reminds me of being warm, comfortable, loved and safe as a child.
6. COMFORT FOODS
Nope. I'm a smoker.
7. FAVOURITE SOUND (s)?
k-chsssh.. (beer or cola, doesn't matter, the sound is good)
8. WORST FEELING IN THE WORLD?
Nothing I want to talk to you about.
9. WHAT IS THE FIRST THING YOU THINK OF WHEN YOU WAKE
I wonder what time/day it is..
10. FAVOURITE FAST FOOD PLACE?
11. FUTURE CHILD'S NAME?
12. FINISH THIS STATEMENT. "IF I HAD A LOT OF MONEY, I WOULD
have sex with two chicks at the same time man."
"That's it? If you had a million dollars, you'd do two chicks at the same time?"
"Damn straight. I always wanted to do that, man. And I think if I had a million dollars I could hook that up, cause chicks dig a dude with money."
"Well, not all chicks."
"Well the kind of chicks that'd double up on a dude like me do."
13. DO YOU SLEEP WITH A STUFFED ANIMAL?
No. But I've been thinking about getting a real doll. Is that wrong?
14. STORMS-COOL OR SCARY?
15. FAVOURITE DRINK?
16. FINISH THIS STATEMENT, "IF I HAD THE TIME,
I would build a functional robot in the likeness of R2D2."
It's on the list of things to do before I die.
17. DO YOU EAT THE STEMS ON BROCCOLI?
Yep. But generally I eat pizza, kebabs and two-minute noodles.
18. If you could DYE YOUR HAIR ANY COLOUR, WHAT WOULD YOU CHOOSE?
What do you mean "if I could"? I can die my hair any colour that I want. I prefer to shave it off.
19. HOW MANY DIFFERENT CITIES/TOWNS HAVE YOU LIVED IN?
In about 10 different towns. I've lived in an average of about one house every two years over my entire life.
20. GLASS HALF EMPTY OR HALF FULL?
Of course, it's a very small glass, its contents are disgusting, my enemy possesses the glass and I'm very thirsty.
I'm an optimist.
21. FAVOURITE SPORT TO WATCH?
22. TOILET PAPER/PAPER TOWEL-OVER OR UNDER?
Over. Anyone who thinks otherwise is a moron, because there is simply no intelligent case for such a configuration. If it's 'under' then I'll fix it before I use it.
23. MORNING PERSON, OR NIGHT OWL?
I'm not either. I just stay awake for 20 or 30 hours at a time. So I'm a morning person and a night-owl. If I woke up when you did, then I'd be a night-owl.
24. OVER EASY, OR SUNNY SIDE UP?
Can't I get them poached at this joint? What kind of an operation are you running here?
25. FAVOURITE PLACE TO RELAX?
On a cliff with no-one else around. Looking down into the valleys and out to the other mountains with a cool breeze on my face. It was nice growing up in the 'bush' around Leura and Wentworth Falls.
26. FAVOURITE PIE?
27. OF ALL THE PEOPLE YOU EMAIL THIS TO, WHO'S MOST LIKELY TO RESPOND?
I'm not e-mailing this to anyone.
30. WHO IS THE LEAST LIKELY TO RESPOND?
31. WHAT IS THE ONE THING THAT YOU COULD NOT LIVE YOUR LIFE WITHOUT?
