Blogging about technology and randomness since 2002

It’s all meme, meme, meme

Came across this meme at ZulyZu. Looks interesting, so here goes :).

  1. Your name spelled backwards. Lien. Some of my friends back home do actually call me that.
  2. Where were your parents born? Dad is from South Yorkshire, Mum is from Teeside (I think… certainly the Cleveland area).
  3. What is the last thing you downloaded onto your computer? Another nightly of Mozilla Thunderbird.
  4. What’s your favourite restaurant? I have a partiality to Salts Diner in Saltaire, near Shipley.
  5. Last time you swam in a pool? On holiday, last summer. I know, I need more exercise…
  6. Have you ever been in a school play? A few times. The Nativity in the early part of primary school, The Sound Of Music in year 6 and Bugsy Malone in year 10. I didn’t say anything in TSoM and had one line in Bugsy Malone.
  7. How many kids do you want? Two or three, but I’d go with whatever my partner wants.
  8. Type of music you dislike most? Gangsta rap. With a passion
  9. Are you registered to vote? Yes. And I’ve made use of that fact.
  10. Do you have cable? At my parents house; if I move into a house in Bradford next year I should have it there too.
  11. Have you ever ridden on a moped? No.
  12. Ever prank call anybody? Might have done, but I don’t think so.
  13. Ever get a parking ticket? Bit hard to get a parking ticket without owning a car.
  14. Would you go bungee jumping or sky diving? Possibly. I’ll usually try anything once.
  15. Furthest place you ever traveled. Barbados. Lovely island.
  16. Do you have a garden? Not here. Parents have one though.
  17. What’s your favorite comic strip? Dilbert, but I’m not a regular reader.
  18. Do you really know all the words to your national anthem? No. I know the tune though.
  19. Bath or Shower, morning or night? Shower, although I have a bath occasionally. At uni I shower in the mornings (or early afternoon, depends when I wake up), at home it’s the evening since it’s more convinient.
  20. Best movie you’ve seen in the past month? I’d say Return of the King if it weren’t for the fact that I saw it last month. Not really watched any films this month.
  21. Favorite pizza topping? Pepperoni, or perhaps parma ham.
  22. Chips Crisps or popcorn? If it’s toffee popcorn, I’ll have that, otherwise crisps will do fine, thanks.
  23. What color lipstick do you usually wear? I’m very partial to transparent.
  24. Have you ever smoked peanut shells? Never knew you could smoke them…
  25. Have you ever been in a beauty pageant? Yeah, I win them all the time… :-/
  26. Orange Juice or apple? Orange, but apple juice is nice as well
  27. Who was the last person you went out to dinner with and where did you dine? Two weeks ago with my parents at Salts Diner.
  28. Favorite type chocolate bar? Got to be Divine. Tastes delicious and it’s fairtrade too.
  29. When was the last time you voted at the polls? Voted in the York council elections last year.
  30. Last time you ate a homegrown tomato? Probably quite recently since Dad grows his own.
  31. Have you ever won a trophy? No.
  32. Are you a good cook? About average. Most of my output is with cooking sauces, but it does at least taste like it’s supposed to.
  33. Do you know how to pump your own gas? Is that a farting-related question?
  34. Ever order an article from an infomercial? No, but then I don’t tend to watch channels that show commercials *hugs BBC*
  35. Sprite or 7-up? Sprite, but I don’t drink it that often. Tesco lemonade is cheaper.
  36. Have you ever had to wear a uniform to work? Sort-of. I was made to wear a university t-shirt while working on open days.
  37. Last thing you bought at a pharmacy? Becotide, Salbutamol and Rhinocort Aqua. They’re prescription drugs for my asthma.
  38. Ever throw up in public? Not since primary school.
  39. Would you prefer being a millionaire or find true love? The latter.
  40. Do you believe in love at first sight? Sort-of.
  41. Ever call a 1-900 number? If it’s anything like 09xxx here, then yes. To vote for Big Brother. Other than that, no.

  43. Who was the last person you visited in a hospital? My grandma, a couple of years back when she had a quick operation on her neck.

  47. What was the name of your first pet? Hammy. He was a hamster, if you haven’t guessed.

  49. Favorite thing to do before bedtime? Um… check my email?
  50. What is one thing you are grateful for today? Hmm. Too early in the… afternoon for philosophical questions.
