A Medley of Memes

This has been cruelly lifted from Richard, who got it from Dina. Basically it’s a series of questions taken randomly from other memes to create a new meme.

  1. What is your favourite colour?
    Purple. I don’t know why, I guess I just like the name.
  2. Tell me about a talent or skill you possess, which I’ve not yet witnessed or discovered.
    I’m actually quite good in a canoe.
  3. What was your favourite subject in school?
    Science. We got to play with stuff and had a cool teacher.
  4. What is one place to which you’ve never been, but you’d like to visit, someday? (Locally or abroad)
    • Locally: Bracknell. No, really. I want to see if it’s as bad as everyone says it is
    • Abroad: Dublin. Sounds like a really lively place to visit.
  5. Are you a morning person or a night person?
    Mornings? Bleh. Definitely a night person.
  6. Are you left-handed or right-handed?
    Right-handed. Though there are left-handers in the family.
  7. Did astronauts really land on the moon, or was it all a hoax?
    I’m pretty sure it was real.
  8. What’s in your pocket? (Or if there’s nothing in your pocket at present, what sorts of things are most often in your pockets?)
    Mobile phone that badly needs charging, hankerchief.
  9. In 10 years, you see yourself… (Finish that any way you desire.)
    Working for a technology company on a 2THz Pentium 9 with 40TB of hard disk.
  10. There’s a power outage, and you don’t have a generator. This means no electronics–no computer, no telly, no videos, no stereo and no electric heat or electric kettle–what do you do to keep warm, content and entertained?
    I’d probably snuggle up in bed and go to sleep, or go to the pub.
  11. What’s one thing you cannot bring yourself to eat?
    Tripe. A vile creation if ever I saw one.


  1. Ah yes, tripe. So there are actually quite a few things I can’t bring myself to eat, since I concur with both Richard and you. 🙂

  2. Questionary Meme

    I saw this Meme on Neil’s World. Now it is my time to answer 🙂 1. What is your favourite colour? Blue in almost all nuances. 2. Tell me about a talent or skill you possess, which I’ve not yet witnessed or discovered. Let me see… I’m very good to mak…

  3. You forgot a meme…
    put in your name and your weblog’s name. rename yourself and your blog for a day with one of the resulting anagrams.
    e.g. Neil Turner —> Line Return; Neil’s World —> Ill Wonders

  4. Blogging?

    WoohooooOOO! Look at me… I’m blogging with no pants on! Blogging with no pants! I slay me! My constant traveling has finally caught up with me, and the only clean clothes I have are a Hard Rock T-Shirt from Munich…
