Random 29

A new meme questionnaire, via Neil (as usual!):

1. When showering, do you start the water and then get in, or get in then start the water?
My boiler heats water as required, rather than maintaining a tank of preheated water. If I turned on even just the hot tap, the shower would run totally cold for the first 30 seconds or so. I prefer not to be under it at that time.

2. Do you read the labels on your shampoo bottle?
In the shop, yes. There are nasty chemicals in some shampoos; sodium lauryl sulphate springs to mind.

3. Do you moan in the shower like the people on the Herbal Essences commercial?
Who doesn't?

4. Have you ever showered with someone of the opposite sex?
Yep. Salt Ayre swimming pool has mixed showering facilities.
Okay; to answer the real question: yes.

5. Have you ever been forced to shower with one of your siblings?
No, but only because my parents didn't have a shower when my sister & I were of pre-school age.

6. Have you ever brushed your teeth in the shower?
Not that I remember, but I could imagine doing so.

7. Have you ever dropped your soap on your foot?
Again, it's possible but unmemorable.

8. How old do you look?
Thirtysomething, but I think it'd be fair to say I don't look as thirtysomething as I am.

9. How old do you act?
In many respects, I've had the demeanour of a fifty-year-old since I was about eight. In general, I probably act my age.

10. What’s the last song you sang?
'A Smart Kid' (Porcupine Tree). Unsuccessfully, since the remnants of a cough mean my voice is unreliable at present.

11. Have you recently become a member of anything?
Nope. It's not really in my nature.

12. What are your plans for the weekend?
Not sure. I'm hoping to be in Lancaster for a party, but my mother may need a little urgent tech support.

13. Do you kiss with your eyes open or closed?

14. What's the sexiest thing about Condoleezza Rice?
Er.... I genuinely can't think of anything.

15. Does anything on your body itch right now?
Not until you mentioned it; thanks. I can feel my ponytail against my neck.

16. Who’s the sexiest famous woman alive?
I'd be lying if claimed indifference or total ignorance, but I am near-oblivious to 'celeb-culture'.
Er... okay; Irène Jacob, though I haven't seen her in a film more recent than 1994. Not mainstream (Hollywood) -famous enough? Jennifer Connolly.

17. Who’s the sexiest famous man alive?
I suppose there's something about Rufus Sewell.

18. Does every family have a crazy uncle?
Dunno. I haven't met every family.
I had an alcoholic uncle with mood-swings, but I think calling him 'crazy' would have been somewhat dismissive.

19. Have you ever smuggled something into America?
Nothing federally illegal, though perhaps in certain states.

20. Does playing the guitar make a girl/guy more attractive?
I don't think it's relevant.

21. Do you live in a city with a good sports team?
No idea, and less interest. So far as I can tell from cursory glances at the back page of the local free paper, probably not.

22. Have you ever finished off the popcorn and ate the junk from the bottom of the bag?
The fragments of corn, you mean? How is that 'junk', or indeed materially different to the rest of the popcorn?

23. Have you ever had sex in a tent?

24. What about in a boat?

25. Have you ever dated a Goth?
A better question would be whether I've ever dated a non-Goth....

26. Would you rather receive amazing oral sex or have amazing sex?
Can the latter preclude the former?

27. Can you fix your own car?
I don't own a car.

28. Would you want to kill George W Bush yourself if you were guaranteed to get away with it?
I certainly feel the world would be a better place without the man, but I have no wish to remove him myself.

29. Should guys wear pink?
There's no 'should' or 'should not' about it. Everyone should have the right to express an individual choice. My own choice wouldn't include pink clothes.
