40 assorted questions

Here’s a meme of 40 assorted questions, found via Troy. They cover a few things that I probably haven’t answered in previous memes so hopefully it’ll prove interesting.

  1. When you’re home alone, do you still close the door when you go to the bathroom? I tend not to leave it wide open but I may not close it fully.
  2. If you have to go grocery shopping, would you rather go alone or with someone? I tend to enjoy company so I’d prefer to go with someone, even if it takes longer.
  3. It’s your best friend’s birthday, do you buy them a gift even though they didn’t buy you one for yours? Maybe, if I could find someting. I’d certainly get them a card, or buy them a drink or something.
  4. You win the lottery. Lump sum or small payments over a period of time? Either really – I tend to be quite good with my money so I wouldn’t spend the whole lump sum at once. And you could earn interest on it too.
  5. Do you like your music loud or at a reasonable level? Reasonable level, so that it’s possible to talk over it without shouting.
  6. Are you a beach person or a snowy mountain person? Beach is good for relaxing, but snowy mountains are good for exploring. A bit of both, I suppose.
  7. When do you brush your teeth? Every morning, and usually before I go to bed too if I’m not too tired.
  8. Can you watch scary movies alone? I tend not to.
  9. Soft bed or firm? Prefer soft, more comfortable.
  10. Would you rather stay home all day, or be out and about with some friends? I’m generally outgoing so I’d prefer to be out and about with friends, but the occasionally day off is nice.
  11. What’s one of your worst memories? Rather not go into it really.
  12. Do you like to keep the peace or be confrontational? Keeping the peace wins you more friends. Sometimes I try to be confrontational and end up making peace anyway.
  13. Are you more likely to be with a large group of people or a few close friends? A few close friends, usually.
  14. What are your plans for October? I have absolutely no idea.
  15. If money were not a problem, where would you like to live? Not sure really, on the one hand I’d like to stay in Bradford because my friends are here, on the other hand it could be nice moving somewhere else. Maybe London or maybe somewhere in the country.
  16. Are you close to your Mum and Dad? Right now I’m sat with them in their living room… But we’re close, I usually phone them twice a week.
  17. What is one fear that you can’t seem to overcome? I don’t have any strong phobias.
  18. Are you good at maths? I have a Maths A-level and a degree in Computing, so I’m not bad.
  19. Do you kiss on a first date? I kissed on the one first date I’ve been on.
  20. Is there anyone that you regret ever meeting? Some people I’ve met annoy me, but I wouldn’t go far as to say I actually regret meeting them.
  21. Rate your life on a scale from 1 to 10 7-8? It’s not bad but there’s room for improvement.
  22. Would you rather have roommates or live alone? Never had a roommate other than Hari, but I’ve shared houses and halls with people. I prefer the company, living on my own can get quite boring.
  23. Do you like any of your friends a little more than just a friend? One or two maybe.
  24. Do you like to drive? I’m still learning but I’m enjoying it, and looking forward to passing my test and getting my own car.
  25. Do you hate anyone at the moment? There are people I generally dislike but I wouldn’t say I hated anyone.
  26. Do you give money to homeless people when they ask? Very rarely. You don’t know if they’re going to spend the money on drugs, or if they’re really homeless. I have given money to homeless charities like Shelter in the past, though.
  27. A weekend in Las Vegas or Miami? Possibly Miami but I’d be more likely to visit New York or Minneapolis if I visited the US.
  28. When you go to the store, do you have a list or just buy random things? I usually at least have a mental list and sometimes a written one, but I do buy random things too.
  29. What do you wear to sleep in? Baggy boxers.
  30. You have 3 months left to live, what do you do? Tie up loose ends, sort out who inherits my possessions and try to do some of the things I want to do before I die. And spend plenty of time with my family and friends, and Hari.
  31. You’re having a bad day, what’s one thing can make your day better? Hari, or chocolate ice cream if she’s not around.
  32. Tanning beds? Never been on one but I don’t feel the need.
  33. Is there anything you would change about your body if you could? Smaller ears, flatter chest, bit more muscle and less hair.
  34. You wake up in an unfamiliar place, what is your first reaction? Where am I?
  35. Is there anything that you should be doing right now? Going to bed and taking asthma medication.
  36. If there was a way to know when and how you’re going to die, would you want that information? It may be useful for the purposes of forward planning but could also be very depressing, so I don’t know.
  37. What is your favourite breakfast food? Danish pastry. Although I had jelly for breakfast a few days ago which was quite nice.
  38. Its 4 am, and your phone is ringing, who would it be? No idea, either drunken friend or a close friend or family member with something so super important it couldn’t wait until the morning.

(Okay so there’s only 38 questions, two were missing from Troy’s list)
