Random 29 question meme

Here’s a meme I found on a friend’s private LiveJournal entry (so I can’t link it to you) – it’a a bit bizarre but it’s mostly full of questions I’ve never answered before so hopefully it’ll be interesting.

  1. When showering, do you start the water and then get in, or get in then start the water? It depends, really, but usually I start the water and then get in to give it time to warm up.
  2. Do you read the labels on your shampoo bottle? Sometimes, but not usually. I tend to buy the same brand everytime anyway.
  3. Do you moan in the shower like the people on the Herbal Essences commercial? Errr, no. I live in a shared house and I don’t want to scare my housemates even more.
  4. Have you ever showered with someone of the opposite sex? Yes.
  5. Have you ever been forced to shower with one of your siblings? No, but I think there’s a picture of me in the bath with two of my cousins somewhere. You know, one of those embarrassing photos that your parents keep for when you bring home your girlfriend.
  6. Have you ever brushed your teeth in the shower? I don’t think so, no.
  7. Have you ever dropped your soap on your foot? Yes. And I;ve also dropped a nearly-full 1 litre bottle of shampoo on my foot too… owww…
  8. How old do you look? About my age, it seems, since I tend not to get asked for ID when buying alcohol.
  9. How old do you act? That varies – sometimes as old as 30, sometimes as young as 5 if I’m in a particularly silly mood.
  10. What’s the last song you sang? “Hardware Store” by Weird Al Yankovic, probably. Just the chorus though.
  11. Have you recently become a member of anything? I recently joined The National Trust, but other than that no.
  12. What are your plans for the weekend? Okay, so I obviously picked the wrong time to do this, but last weekend I went out with Hari on Saturday night and went for a pub lunch yesterday. This weekend we’re going through to York to see my parents.
  13. Do you kiss with your eyes open or closed? Usually closed.
  14. Whats the sexiest thing about Condoleeza Rice? Um, nothing probably? No offence but I really don’t bracket Ms Rice under ‘sexy’.
  15. Does anything on your body itch right now? The middle-right bit of my chest.
  16. Who’s the sexiest famous woman alive? Kirsten Dunst. I’d say Hari but she’s not exactly famous.
  17. Who’s the sexiest famous man alive? Hari seems to have a minor obsession with David Tennant so I’ll say him, on the basis that she knows more about these things.
  18. Does every family have a crazy uncle? One of my uncles is a little crazy, so I’m guessing so.
  19. Have you ever smuggled something into America? I’ve never been, so no.
  20. Does playing the guitar make a girl/guy more attractive? I don’t think so, though I suppose it would be cool.
  21. Do you live in a city with a good sports team? Bradford Bulls, the local rugby league team, are pretty good. The football team used to be better but they’re not so great at the moment.
  22. Have you ever finished off the popcorn and ate the junk from the bottom of the bag? Yes, I have…
  23. Have you ever had sex in a tent? No.
  24. What about in a boat? Not there either.
  25. Have you ever dated a Goth? No.
  26. Would you rather receive amazing oral sex or have amazing sex? Amazing sex.
  27. Can you fix your own car? I don’t own a car, but even if I did I probably wouldn’t, beyond the basics.
  28. Would you want to kill George W Bush yourself if you were guaranteed to get away with it? Nah, I’d just poke him.
  29. Should guys wear pink? If it looks good on them, then I don’t see why not. I don’t think it would work on me though.


  1. hey there 🙂 i did it too on my blog
    some of my answers i can’t say i thought about before lol

  2. Every guy should wear pink;)

  3. Everyone (male or female) should wear pink on Friday 27th October – it’s Breast Cancer Awareness Wear it Pink day.
    Besides, from the photos, I’m guessing you’d look great in pink, Neil.
