Just as I complete one meme questionnaire, I see that Krys has made another available.

Oh, go on, then.

[Note: completed at my mother's house in Wales, rather than at home in Lancaster, which will affect my responses.]

1. Do you hate your last boyfriend/girlfriend?
No. H. is both my current and previous gf. It's complicated.

2. When was the last time you took a nap?
9 December, the day after I'd cycled 37 km between 00:30 & 02;00, itself after a week of insomnia. I try to avoid napping during the day, but sometimes I'm so tired or run down.

3. Do you only drink bottled water?
I never drink bottled water.

4. How are you feeling?
Okay, thanks.

5. Who was the last person you texted before you fell asleep last night?
I didn't.

6. Who was the last person to send you a MySpace message?
I'll look....
... The last person was Jackie, in June.

7. What was on your mind most today?
Time passing.

8. Have you dated people who were not good for you?
Not seriously bad for me.

9. How will you spend your next birthday?
That's eleven months away!

10. What's your current problem?
That I can't think of an answer to this question (ooh! circular logic!).

11. Do you like to snowboard?
Never had the opportunity. Nor the inclination, now you mention it.

12. Do you believe everyone deserves a second chance?
I don't believe in the concept of 'deserving'.

Never used IM.

14. Would you believe your ex if they said they still loved you?
See Q.1....

15. What's your most hated food?
Eggs, as eggs – no problem with egg as an ingredient of other foods.

16. What's your favourite colour?

17. Would you date your best friend?
That'd be weird.

18. Who was your favourite teacher in middle school?
If US 'middle school' equates to UK 'junior school', none. Didn't like junior school.

Dark-ish brown.

K's 32 for one more week.

Not one I know.

25. Are you happy at the moment?
No more or less so than in Q.4.

At home, the roughly-painted floorboards are strategically covered by two rugs. The bedroom I'm occupying this week has a fitted carpet.

28. Do you have over 100 CDs?
More like over 1,000.

No, next door, I think.

36. Ever kissed a brown eyed and brown haired person?

37. Can you see a phone right now?
No. I think I'll live.

38. What are you listening to right now?
The Pineapple Thief – 'What We Have Sown' and frankly, getting really bored of it.

39. Where is it coming from?
The pixies enslaved within my iPod are teasing it out of the æther.

Prawn & lettuce sandwiches and an individual jelly (US: jello).

46. Have you ever made out on an aeroplane?
No, but I have in an airport.

This sentence.

49. What scent are you wearing right now?

50. Ever thought you were going to get married?

No, but I did ride my bike home from pubs a few times in the 1990s.

58. Last time you had butterflies in your stomach?
I tend to be either fine or rigid with all-consuming fear; I rarely experience mild intermediary stuff like 'butterflies'.

59. What was your last alcoholic beverage?
I don't remember; that was at least 15 months ago.

60. How is your mood today?
Much as in Q.4 and Q.25, but with slight irritation at having to repeat myself.

61. Where was your last vacation at?
That's appalling grammar.
London, anyway, if a single day counts. Before that, Wien.

62. Do you have close friends?
I'd like to think so.

63. Do you like anyone?
Of course!

64. What's the largest age difference between yourself and someone you have hooked up with/ dated?
No more than a couple of years.

65. When was the last time you cried?
Friday, whilst reading details of of the Lockerbie bombing on its 19th anniversary. Things like that always upset me, even though I had no personal involvement.

66. What is one thing you miss about your past?
Big question, which I can't readily answer, neither seriously nor flippantly.

67. What is one thing you've learned about life?
Meme questionnaires take longer to complete than one thinks initially.

68. Is anyone jealous of you?
I'd be surprised.

69. Has a friend ever used you?
I can't think of an occasion, and I'm likely to remember. That largely depends on one's definition of 'friend' – acquaintances have, but I've regarded few acquaintances as friends.

70. What was the last movie you watched?
'Monsters, Inc.' Pretty good.

71. How many things in your past do you regret?
Seven. Oh, and the thing with the suspender belt. But we don't talk about that.

72. What is something that you want to do within the next week?
Weather permitting, I'd like to take my camera for a walk along the Atlantic coast of Devon.

73. Who was the last person you hugged?
I'm not sure. Either my mother or H.; it was a few months ago, anyway.

74. Have you ever wanted someone but you knew you couldn't be with them?
Yes, I'm human.

75. Is there anyone you are excited to see soon?
I'm not sure exactly when it'll be, but I'm looking forward to seeing H.

76. Has one of your friends ever stabbed you in the back?
As Q.69.

77. Do you have more friends that are girls or boys?
Girls. Well, women.

78. How long have you had MySpace?
That sounds like 'how long have you had running water?'. It's not that big a deal.
Nineteen months, anyway.

79. Has anyone ever talked about you behind your back?
Would I know?

80. Have you ever cried yourself to sleep?
Oh yes....
