Are you a practical jokester?
No. I like jokes, but not practical jokes. I haven’t seen much sign of them since leaving school, though. Practical jokes often seem to be about humiliating or scaring people.

Who cuts your hair? You, a friend, or professional.
A professional. She’s a “gentleman’s barber” and I’ve been going to her for years. I’m not sure how you can cut your own hair. Presumably you’d need a series of mirrors or maybe a video camera set up so you can see round the back?

Did you have a stuffed animal when you were a kid, if so what kind?
I had two or three but the only one I can remember was a little yellow elephant. I believe it was called Jumbo and I had a dressing gown cord around its neck so I could drag it around behind me.

What inspired you or what did you appreciate this past week? Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination.
Gaah. It’s an insanely busy month. I appreciate just getting through the week.

What would be your ideal fantasy way to spend Monday?
After an extended lie in, me and my supermodel actress wife, Princess Bethany of Muldrongia, would go for a bit of a sail on the yacht to our private island where we’d spend the rest of the day being pampered. I expect our private Michelin-starred chef would manage a good old feast for our tea!

What one person that you are out of contact with would you like to say thank you to?
Well, there was this one girl from many years ago…

List your favourite toys or games as a kid?
Pretty much the standards. Monopoly, card games, Lego (I liked the space Lego).

I appreciated getting to work safely when we had a spot of snow. Now, don’t laugh, I know it’s only a couple of millimetres. But it was early in the morning and there was frozen hail underneath so it was pretty slippery.

And remember, this happens once every few years in my area so we’re not set up for it, and not used to it. The last time we had lying snow was 2010, I believe.

If you had an unlimited shopping spree at only one store, which one would you choose? Why?
I either chose Amazon or some sort of IT shop last time we had this question. This time I’m shooting for the stars and going for a Ferrari main dealer.

I’ll bring me mates and we’ll clean that place out. Ferrari’s for everyone!

What is the worst thing you ate recently?
I don’t really eat bad things. I make my own meals and it’s hard to screw up a sandwich. I did have a tin of soup last week which was pretty uninspiring but I wouldn’t call it bad.

Name five things you like watching…
I like watching the waves, running water and my godson having fun with his toys. I also like watching all things sci-fi and fantasy.

Just getting through the week. And next week promises to be even busier!

List 2 things you have to be happy about.
I’m happy that I’ve bought a new fridge freezer! It’s both a fridge and a freezer, so that’s my 2 things. The freezer bit at the bottom has little drawers and everything!

Have you ever owned a rock, pet rock, or gem that is not jewellery?
I owned a pet quartz/flint cross as a kid but one day I left the garden gate open and it got run over.

Very sad.

Are you a hugger or a non-hugger?
I hug back šŸ™‚

I spent the day last Sunday with my godson on his fourth birthday (which I mentioned in last week’s SYW post). He and his little friends had a bouncy castle, ball pit and so on in the morning and then he had a birthday tea in the evening. Judging by his face he had a great time the entire day šŸ™‚

Complete this sentence: Iā€™m looking forward to…
… my little Godson’s fourth birthday today. He’s having a party with his friends around lunch time and then a birthday tea later on šŸ™‚

What is your favourite comfort snack food?
Chocolate, I guess.

What was one of your first moneymaking jobs (other than babysitting or newspaper delivery)?
My first job was working in the computer department at the County Council. It was full-time, for about three months. This was between my A Levels and going to university, so it was a nice little money boost before going away.

What inspired you or what did you appreciate this past week? Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination.
I popped over to my parents’ house after work one evening to help move furniture back (they’ve had a new carpet put down) and Mum cooked me bacon, egg and potato waffles for my tea. That was much appreciated šŸ™‚

Do you prefer a bath or shower?
Shower. A bath never really ends up making me feel particularly clean. I just end up sweating a lot. Plus, I can’t afford to keep taking baths. I had a girlfriend once in the 90s who suddenly started taking a bath every day instead of a shower. She tripled my water bill šŸ˜¦

What do you do to make a living or during the day? If you are retired what mostly occupies your day? Or if you are a student what are you studying?
I work in IT. Computers and such. I say “have you tried switching it off and on again” a lot.

Is there a stuffed animal in your bedroom?
Oh boy, is there! This is yet another opportunity to show the most posted image on my blog – the lads!

Nuffin’, init.
