The latest MeMeMeMeMeMeMe!

Got this one from Llwetra...

(I wanted to do this whole meme as a photo meme, but discovered that all my batteries are dead so I can't take the necessary pictures. I may update later on with more pics, but I'm busier than a one-legged man in a butt-kicking contest, so realistically, probably not.)

1. PICK OUT A SCAR YOU HAVE, AND EXPLAIN HOW YOU GOT IT
I have scars on the knuckles on my right hand from learning how to scull. This is what they looked like before they were scars:


2. WAHT IS ON THE WALLS OF YOUR ROOM?
Bookshelves, fairy lights, photos of my family, a calendar...


...green paint, Impressionist artwork, and a really ugly light fixture.


3. WHAT DOES YOUR PHONE LOOK LIKE.
That's the most retarded questions I've ever seen in a meme. what the fuck does it matter what my phone looks like? It's got numbers on it. That's all you need to know.

4. WHAT MUSIC DO YOU LISTEN TO?
Oh, the usual... Meatloaf, Simon and Garfunkel, celtic rock, madrigals, 17th c. choral works, AC/DC...

5. WHAT IS YOUR CURRENT DESKTOP PICTURE?
This one of the Pirate skipping stones in a river:

6. WHAT DO YOU WANT MORE THAN ANYTHING RIGHT NOW?
Permission to live and work in the UK indefinately.

7. DO YOU SUPPORT GAY MARRIAGE?
Yes, absolutely, unequivicolly. It's a matter of civil and human rights, and the last bastion of socially acceptable discrimination in the developed world. Homosexuals are the only group suffering more discimination than women at the hands of the Christian churches. It is the only government-sanctioned discrimination. The fact that the issue of gay marriage is still considered a genuine debate boggles my mind, but then, gun control is still a debate and that boggles my mind as well, so there you go. But what it comes to is this: we cannot claim to live in a fair, just, liberal, or free society until we grant gay people the same basic rights as everyone else. End of.

8. WHAT TIME WERE YOU BORN?
7:17 pm. I know this because a) my brother was born at 5:15 pm and mother considers this an amazing coicidence, and b) mom calls me every year on my birthday at exactly 7:17 pm to sing to me.

9. ARE YOUR PARENTS STILL TOGETHER?
Yep.
10. WHAT ARE YOU LISTENING TO?
Sirens. And construction works. And shitehawks. Fucking shitehawks.

11. DO YOU GET SCARED OF THE DARK?
I've never been scared of the dark, only the stuff that may or may not be IN the dark because I can't see. But the dark itself is not scary.

12. THE LAST PERSON TO MAKE YOU CRY?
This guy:
(photo removed)
with joy.

13. WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE COLOGNE / PERFUME?
(I'm so embarassed to admit this but it's...) *whispers* Jessica McClintock

(Sorry, GSE. I don't know much about perfume.)

14. WHAT KIND OF HAIR/EYE COLOUR DO YOU LIKE ON THE OPPOSITE SEX?
Hair: yes. or no. Long is good, bald is good, and so's everything in between.*
Eyes: 2, please

*All right, I'm a hypocrite. I try and sound all "I'm not superficial it doesn't matter what's on the outside I'm attracted to people's personalities," but really I like long hair, the longer and curlier the better, and red or strawberry-blonde hair is super-hot. Just goes to show you that the universe has a sense of humor, tho, because I fell in love with a man with straight, dark, 1/2-inch long hair. Go figure.

15. DO YOU LIKE PAIN KILLERS?
When I'm experiencing (certain kinds) of pain, I love them.

16. ARE YOU TOO SHY TO ASK SOMEONE OUT?
No.

17. FAVE PIZZA TOPPING?
Loads of sauce with loads of oregano. (Most of the pizzas here in the UK are served with the bare minimum of sauce -- about the same as how much toothpaste you use to brush your teeth -- and it's as well-seasoned as tomato catsup.) After that, good cheese (mozarella, ricotta, or goat cheese are all fine. Cheddar on pizza is NOT fine).

Once you've got good sauce and proper cheese, it can stay that way, or you can load it up with any combination of the following: BBQ chicken, brocolli, red peppers, onions (caramelized or raw), pepperoni, proschuitto, ham, canadian bacon, mushrooms, pineapple, black olives, and/or spinach. There are probably a few more things, but I can't think of any at the moment.

18. IF YOU COULD EAT ANYTHING RIGHT NOW, WHAT WOULD IT BE?
See question 12.

19. WHO WAS THE LAST PERSON YOU MADE MAD?
The ditz at the sport centre who didn't want to accept a payment from my credit card because it was more work for her than paying cash.

20. IS ANYONE IN LOVE WITH YOU?
I have good reason to think so. ;-p

Hannah: true, but to be fair, there are plenty of times i'm not nauseatingly happy. there are, in fact, a surprising number of times i find myself staring into a dark pit of depression (like every time i contomeplate a life without rowing), but i don't blog about them because i don't want to indulge those moments. Pirate is the life line keeping me from falling over.

JJ: thanks for sharing!

Michael: dirty bird? Moi??? Squawk!

Annie Rhiannon said...

Your bedroom looks like your blog.

Dave said...

Oh yes, you've changed the blog colours to tone in with your walls. How sophisticated is that?

I'll have pizza when I come in June, thanks.

Jane P said...

You painted on that eye-patch, didn't you?

Don't tell me Dave is visiting you too? You don't happen to live in Yorkshire, do you, so he might pop round to see me?

Chaucer's Bitch said...

Annie: really? I guess it does. I've always made a very conscious effort to make my bedroom a place that is physically and emotionally comfortable for me to inhabit. I guess I did the same with the blog.

Dave: I dont' know, how sophisticated is that? re: pizza -- Aye aye, sir!

JaneP: and the bandana and the earring. I wanted to paint in a parrot as well, but i have have a life. and no, i live in the southwest. if you want to get together with dave you'll have to work that out with him.

Frobisher said...

I always feel brighter after reading your blog.

Chaucer's Bitch said...

Ooh excellent idea about photomeme! The music collection is much like mine - I have some early English stuff and even recreated Roman and Viking music.
