Facebook quiz

Filed under: Me — Tags: , , — qwandor @ 12:00 am

Facebook meme follows.

1. WERE YOU NAMED AFTER ANYONE? My middle name is the same as my dad’s.

2. WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU CRIED? Probably 2008. If not then definitely 2007.

3. DO YOU LIKE YOUR HANDWRITING? Not especially, but I prefer to avoid handwriting anyway.

4. WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE LUNCH MEAT? Salami I guess. Though I hardly ever have it any more.

5. DO YOU HAVE KIDS? No.

6. IF YOU WERE ANOTHER PERSON WOULD YOU BE FRIENDS WITH YOU? I am not sure. I hope so.

7. DO YOU USE SARCASM? Sometimes.

9. WOULD YOU BUNGEE JUMP? Not if I had to pay to do it.

10. WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE CEREAL? Muesli. This recipe.

11. DO YOU UNTIE YOUR SHOES WHEN YOU TAKE THEM OFF? Of course.

13. WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE ICE CREAM? I would be most likely to buy chocolate, because it goes well with lots of things or by itself. If I were having icecream by itself though, probably strawberry or some other fruit flavour.

14. WHAT IS THE FIRST THING YOU NOTICE ABOUT PEOPLE? Not sure. Hair? Face? Clothes? I have not really thought about it conciously.

15. RED OR PINK? That depends. I would rather have pink skin than red sunburn. But probably red in many cases.

16. WHAT IS YOUR LEAST FAVOURITE THING ABOUT YOURSELF? Again, that depends how the question is asked. My sinful nature. The difficulty I have sleeping when I want to (at night). Laziness. Not being very good at understanding and interacting with people in various social contexts, especially in groups, sometimes.

17. WHO DO YOU MISS THE MOST? There are many people I miss, some overseas, some who live nearby but whom I do not get to see — or talk to properly, hang out with, whatever — as often as I would like. Jordan Landers comes to mind as one (overseas), but there are others.

18. DO YOU WANT EVERYONE TO COMPLETE THIS LIST? Not especially.

19. WHAT COLOUR PANTS AND SHOES ARE YOU WEARING? Off-white shorts with blue thread, no shoes.

21. WHAT ARE YOU LISTENING TO RIGHT NOW? Oasis — Live Forever.

22. IF YOU WERE A CRAYON, WHAT COLOUR WOULD YOU BE? I am not and never will be a crayon. This question makes no sense.

23. FAVOURITE SMELLS? Nice food. Trees, sometimes. Probably others I cannot think of right now.

24. WHO WAS THE LAST PERSON YOU TALKED TO ON THE PHONE? Not sure. Probably my parents.

25. DO YOU LIKE THE PERSON WHO SENT THIS TO YOU? There was not a specific person, I just noticed it being filled in by various people.

26. FAVOURITE SPORTS TO WATCH? I see no point in watching any sport.

27. HAIR COLOUR? Brown.

28. EYE COLOUR? Brown, I think. Actually, looking in the mirror, maybe more greenish.

29. DO YOU WEAR CONTACTS? Only when my glasses are broken.

30. FAVOURITE FOOD? I like various foods. Nothing too (spicy) hot though. Bananas are pretty handy.

31. SCARY MOVIES OR HAPPY ENDINGS? Happy endings. Or at least movies that have interesting ideas. Though books tend to be better for that.

32. LAST MOVIE YOU WATCHED? ‘The Curious Case of Benjamin Button’, I think. I do not tend to watch many movies.

33. WHAT COLOUR SHIRT ARE YOU WEARING? Gray, with black arms.

34. SUMMER OR WINTER? What about them? I do not like rain. Sun is nice, but I do not like to be too hot. I guess my favourite weather is a cool, clear day, with some wind but not too much. It is easier to dress up warmly than to cool off when it is too hot. Wind is fun, but a pain when running or biking. It is fine when walking in no particular hurry though.

35. HUGS OR KISSES? Hugs are pretty good. I cannot say I have much to judge kisses on. So I guess hugs.

36. FAVOURITE DESSERT? Again, I like lots of desserts. Things with apple tends to be nice, like apple scotch. Most chocolate things are good too. I do not much like whipped cream. Something hot served with icecream is nice. Cakes are good too. A good chocolate brownie is excellent.

37. IF YOU COULD MAKE A WISH? That is not a question.

38. WHAT (in general) IRRITATES YOU? Lack of respect and consideration. Unwillingness to consider other options. Untidyness (that comes into the first one though). Not having enough food. Not knowing what to do, and so being unproductive.

39. WHAT BOOK ARE YOU READING NOW? The Emperor’s New Mind by Roger Penrose, and The 1972 Annual World’s Best SF edited by Donald A. Wollheim. In a manner of speaking — I started the former almost a year ago and have hardly looked at it since, and I read some of the stories in the latter this summer, but then did not touch it for ages. I used to read a lot, but now tend to get occupied with other things. Like this.

40. WHAT IS ON YOUR MOUSE PAD? My mouse.

41. WHAT DID YOU WATCH ON TV LAST NIGHT? I have not watched TV for ages. Two years, maybe? At least not for more than a couple of minutes in passing.

42. FAVOURITE SOUND(S)? Er, music?

43. ROLLING STONES OR BEATLES? I am not a great fan of either, so hard to say. Probably the Beatles, but I do not know enough of their music to give a fair judgement.

44. WHAT IS THE FARTHEST YOU HAVE BEEN FROM HOME? Sweden, I think. Though I guess that was home while I was there.

45. DO YOU HAVE A SPECIAL TALENT? Probably. For some definitions of ‘special’ and ‘talent’, anyway.

46. WHERE WERE YOU BORN? Wellington Hospital.

47. WHOSE ANSWERS ARE YOU LOOKING FORWARD TO GETTING BACK? I have no strong feelings about that, this quiz is not that revealing really. Though if Valerie does it she is likely to give some interesting answers, so I would like to read that. In general, if I know you, then I will read what you write. Within reason.

48. WHERE DID YOU MEET YOUR SPOUSE/SIGNIFICANT OTHER? There is none.

  1. Would you mind if I give you a hand in answering question 45: it seems that one of your special talents is being capable in writing more than you speak…perhaps due to the fact that you are very cautious and always think before you speak? This is a good trait.

  2. I have just realised that my answer to question 35 should, of course, have been ghci.
