The first time I've participated, so here goes:
When was the last time you...
1. ...went to the doctor?
I last saw my GP some time in April 2003, but my orthopedic consultant every month or so until May, when the metalwork in my hand finally settled down.
2. ...went to the dentist?
Over five years ago, I think. I was told I needed all four wisdom teeth removed, even though I'd had no problems with them (and still haven't). It would have meant surgery under general anaesthetic, and since my sister is a surgeon, I know that general anaesthetic is never routine (to be avoided unless essential), so I just never went back.
It really would be advisable for me to have a dentist, but finding one in Lancaster is near-impossible. I must make the effort, though.
3. ...filled your gas tank?
I filled the tank of a hire van on, ooh, 11 August, 2003, on the way back from moving a load of furniture from my mother's home to my new house. Otherwise I don't have a tank to fill - never owned (or wanted) a car.
4. ...got enough sleep?
I don't remember! About a month ago, probably.
5. ...backed up your computer?
At work: last night; it's automatic.
At home: er, never. Until very recently I had a faulty CD-R burner which couldn't produce data discs, so I couldn't really back up more than the absolute vitals, onto floppies. I really must do a proper backup, asap.
