Blogging about technology and randomness since 2002


Things have been quiet here of late because of the elections, which were yesterday. Though one of the candidates I was backing won (and by a landslide) the others unfortunately didn’t. I guess honesty and fairness aren’t the qualities you need to win an election any more.
Because I’m not best pleased with how things went yesterday and the tactics that people adopted I’m a bit raaaaa right now so I’ll probably stay quiet for a bit to allow myself to calm down (and, more importantly, enjoy St Patricks Day today). In the meantime, here’s a meme that I’ve pinched from Troy and Dave.

  1. When you looked at yourself in the mirror today, what was behind you?The TV.
  2. How much cash did you spend yesterday? Around £10.
  3. What’s a word that rhymes with mist? Pissed.
  4. Favorite planet, which you would live on, if you could? I’d have to say Earth as it’s the planet I have experience of.
  5. Who is the LAST person you kissed? Hari, this morning (still happily together, despite the stress of yesterday).
  6. What is your favorite ring on your phone? The default Nokia theme. Okay so everyone has it but it shows you’re not a Chav and at least I recognise it.
  7. What is the last band shirt you wore? The Darkness, from their 2004 Winter arena tour.
  8. What do you think of yourself? Eh, I’m okay. Pretty average.
  9. Name the brand of your shoes you’re currently wearing? Not wearing any right now, but I had some walking trainers from Marks and Spencer on earlier.
  10. Night light or pitch black? Night Light.
  11. What do you think about the (previous) person who took this? That’ll be Dave, who just rocks. He’s witty and interesting. Although his obsession with Liz Hurley can’t be healthy.
  12. What were you doing at midnight last night? Discussing politics.
  13. What did your last text message say that you received? It was Hari asking me where to meet me.
  14. Where is the nearest Valero? Somewhere in the US, from the looks of things.
  15. What’s something that you say a lot? Sorry.
  16. Who told you they loved you last? Hari, this morning before she left for lectures.
  17. Last furry thing you touched? My blanket.
  18. How many drugs have you done in the past 3 days? None. Drugs are bad.
  19. Favourite age you have been so far? Probably 21.
  20. Your worst enemy? Hmmm, I have a few. Nick Griffin maybe?
  21. What is your current desktop picture? I still have the default one on my Mac, and this is still my Windows desktop. I don’t tend to change desktops frequently.
  22. What was the last thing you said to someone? Thank you. (at the supermarket)
  23. How do you like your eggs? Cooked in cakes.
  24. Do you like someone? Define like. I like lots of people.
  25. The last song you listened to? “Dream Universe” by DJ Garry is what is currently playing.


  1. But it’s my obsession with Elizabeth Hurley that MAKES me witty and interesting! 🙂

  2. Am resisting all memes for a week and besides I’m far too old to be writing about favourite ring tones. I do like your egg answer though.

  3. p.s. Ahem. I just realised that you’ve got the old typepad url for me on the sidebar…

  4. I really like your desktop. Could you email it to me? I’d be really greatful. Thanks m8!

  5. “I guess honesty and fairness aren’t the qualities you need to win an election any more.”
    Try “honesty and fairness aren’t the qualities you need to win in the past four thousand years”.
