The image doesn't relate to the post. It's just a little iPod pic I did and thought I may as well post it.
I was tagged by the most excellent Brian Sibley for this alphabet meme. Here goes!
A – Age: This should be O as in old. Mid-thirties.
B – Bed Size: I have no idea. Could be bigger? I'm so out of touch with bed sizes. I am unknown in bed size circles.
C – Chore you hate: I think simply coming under the heading of 'chore' means it's something I hate.
D – Dog’s name: I haven't got a dog right now but, if I had, I'd call him Jeremy Beagle. He'd be a beagle obviously.
E – Essential start your day item: Coffee. Must have coffee.
F – Favorite colour: Hmmm... not sure. Orange? I like orange. It's bright.
G – Gold or Silver: Silver. To me, they're just metals. An inch away from rock. I don't really get the attraction. Or the value. But silver just looks a little better than gold in my opinion.
H – Height: 5′10″
I – Instruments you play(ed): I'm going to say synthesiser but I'm really stretching it here. I don't so much play it as I very slowly select notes one after another. I'm rubbish at it but I have a little MicroKorg and love it. I used to have a Stylophone. Retro excellence. Of course, when I had it, it wasn't retro. It was totally now.
J – Job title: Animator. Animation director. Writer. Something. I don't know. Creative something or other.
K – Kid(s): Yep. Sleep? Not a bit.
L – Living arrangements: A tiny little house. It's like a miniature. I think it's made by Fisher Price. I need somewhere bigger to live. And money to pay for it.
M – Mom’s name: Mum
N – Nicknames: Nicknames sort of require friends to give them to you. If I were to assign my own nickname, it would be 'Ripper'. Or 'Stud'. 'Studley Moore'. Something along those lines.
O – Overnight hospital stay other than birth: Nose job. Not cosmetic - a deviated septum. I always was considered a bit of a deviant so it was nice to find out what bit it was. But what they didn't tell me (or I didn't listen) was that the op is not permanent. Basically it all collapses back after a while. Which it did. I can't be bothered going through it again because it was rather unpleasant. Blood seeped constantly down into my stomach where it went all congealed and black and then I vomited it all over the walls like a Nightmare on Elm Street movie. Nice, eh?
P – Pet Peeve: Lateness. I hate people being late. It bugs the living crap out of me. I hate waiting. I see waiting as my short life trickling away and for someone to make me wait should be a criminal offense. It is theft of life.
Q – Quote from a movie: "Well hello, Mr.Fancypants!"
R – Right or left handed: Right.
S – Sports: No thanks.
T – Time you wake up: 6.40am.
U- Underwear: Boxers.
V – Vegetable you dislike: Pretty much everything except baked beans and sweetcorn.
W – Ways you run late: I don't run late. But I sometimes have to wait for people who do. Should be criminal, I tell you.
X – X-rays you’ve had: A lot. I can't really remember. I used to get panic attacks that were associated with depression long before I was diagnosed. I thought I was dying and had just about every test in the book run, including many x-rays.
Y – Yummy food you make: Beans on toast. It's about the only food I can make but that's okay. I love it!
Z – Zoo favorite: Ring-tailed lemurs. And tigers. Rarrrgh!
So there you go. A lot of answers to a whole alphabet of questions. So I guess I better tag someone else then so these guys are next: Andy, Susan and Justin (of his excellent Juz, Jax & El blog which I have only just discovered).
And anyone else who would like to have a go.
