Here is my post for Melanie’s Share Your World.

Guns? Are you pro or con? Explain your point of view.
Largely con, though I live in a country where even the regular police don’t carry guns and gun possession is largely illegal. As a result, there is very little gun crime, so that’s a good thing! People just stab each other instead. Of course, it’s difficult to slaughter a whole room of people in five seconds using only a kitchen knife.

How would your country change if everyone, regardless of age, could vote?
I’d be a member of parliament! While the adult vote would be split between the main parties, I would get 100% of the kiddie vote by offering tax breaks on sweets and chocolate and a ban on homework.

Of course, in order to get a tax break they’d have to pay tax on their pocket money, but they’re too young to understand that and then it’ll be too late – see, I’m thinking like a politician already!

What’s your cure for hiccups?
A complete throat and stomach transplant. It’s the only way to be sure.

What’s the coldest you’ve ever been?
I’m always cold. At work, it’s my “thing”. To pick out an especially cold incident would be impossible, I’m afraid.

Here is my post for Melanie’s Share Your World.

What does a successful relationship look like to you?
It’s very difficult to tell. Maybe people who do lots of things together, as a team. Some people who look all peaches and cream on the outside can be all grrr behind closed doors.

If you could turn any activity into an Olympic sport, what would you have a good chance at winning a medal for?
Advanced Afternoon Napping. I’m pretty good at that.

What do you wish you knew more about?
The life-cycle of the tsetse fly. No, quantum string theory, that’s it. No, wait, the life and times of Sun Tzu. I wish I knew more about what I wish to know more about.

What is better in your opinion – asking for forgiveness or permission?
That depends very much on the consequences of not asking for permission…

Here is my post for Melanie’s Share Your World. This is a collection of fun questions in honour of April Fool’s Day! There are quite a lot so I’ll answer a selection.

Why is it called “beauty sleep” when one wakes up looking like a troll?
Ha, speak for yourself. I’m always bootiful 😉

Why do they sterilise needles for lethal injections?
If you’re gonna do a job, do it right…

Why do most cars have speedometers that go up to at least 130 when you legally can’t go that fast on any road?
Two reasons I reckon. In case you take it on the track – so mine would need to go up to over 140mph anyway. And if the speedo only went up to 70mph (the max in the UK), how could you tell you were speeding? You could be going 90 and it would still be reading 70 🙂

What are some things that are okay to do occasionally but definitely not okay to do every day?
Stay in with loads of chips and dips and chocolate and watch telly all day.

In your opinion, what’s the best type of cheese?
All of it.

You are about to get in a fight, what song comes on your mind soundtrack?
I know it’s completely obvious, but the moment I read the question I heard “Eye of the Tiger” in my mind.

Here is my post for Melanie’s Share Your World. And here’s another new logo!

What is the best pick me up that you know of? To shake you out of the blues?
Ooh, I don’t know. A jaunty song perhaps. Or a bar of chocolate. A jaunty song and a bar of chocolate. A jaunty song, a bar of chocolate and a funny comedy.

What would be the title of your memoir?
It Started, It Happened, It Finished – The Story of One Man’s Plod Through Life.

Where do you like to go when you eat out?
I’m not a big fan of eating out. If I do, somewhere casual like a pub restaurant.

Do you believe in luck?
Nah. Not really. I say “good luck” to people of course, but random good and bad things happen and we decided to call those “good” and “bad” luck.

Aside from necessities, what is one thing you couldn’t go a day without?
I’ll follow everyone else and go with the internet. I’d be severely limited in what I could do at work, for a start.

Here is my post for Melanie’s Share Your World.

We have a new logo! In the last one, the UK was front and centre. Now North America’s there instead – I heard a certain squirrel had something to do with this. Game on, squirrel!

Do You Have Any Guilty Pleasures?
No. I have plenty of pleasures but I don’t feel guilty about any of them 😉 Life’s too short and all that.

What’s The Worst Pick Up Line You’ve Used?
I don’t recall ever using a pickup line, bad or otherwise. Women generally pick me up. All both of them. Cos I’m so awesome and shit.

What Slang Or Trend Makes You Feel Old?
One I really don’t get is when “the kidz” describe something as “sick”. Is that good or bad? Yes. Both. Either. How very confusing.

And this desperation to be constantly connected to social media. I don’t get it.

What Do You Consider The Most Over-rated Song?
There are so many songs which get on my nerves. There’s this one that keeps playing at work. It’s some woman screeching. I don’t know what it’s called or who it’s by. I’m classifying it as “overrated” since many people clearly seem to love it! You’ll know it if you hear it. Avoid it!

Instead of a Tender Mercies question, here’s a philosophical one instead:
You Find A Book And Begin To Read Only To Discover That It Is Your Life. You Get To The Point That You Are At Now, Do You Turn The Page Knowing That You Will Not Be Able To Change The Events To Come?
No way. Can you imagine? You’d spend so much time trying to avoid your fate you’d probably cause it to happen. ‘Cos you know how these weird freaky time things go.

Here is  my post for Melanie’s Share Your World.

If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?
What I’d like to hear: “Hey dude, good to have you, your personal paradise is third pod on the left!”

What I’d more likely hear: “You again? I keep telling you, you can’t come in.” Beep beep beep… ring ring, ring ring… “Hello, Beelzebub? God. He’s here again. Can’t you keep your inmates under control…?”

What do you regard as the lowest depth of misery?
That bit where Kathy Bates’ character hobbles the author 😦 That Stephen King, eh…?

What do you think about when you’re alone in your car?
Here I am, alone in my car, driving along…

How would you rate your memory?
One of those ice cream sundaes with raspberry sauce. Sorry, what was the question again?

What’s one song that always cheers you up, no matter how blue you’re feeling?
I don’t really have any go-to music for any particular mood.

Here is my post for Melanie’s Share Your World.

What’s the first thing you notice about a person?
Probably their face. I’m checking for their general demeanour so I can judge my first words accordingly. Of course, subconsciously I’m probably processing all sorts.

What three habits do you feel would improve someone’s life?
These three. Well, that’s really two-and-a-half habits.

What takes up too much of your time? Would you stop that if you could?
Housework. That’s gotta take up at least half an hour a week. At least 🙂

Cookies (biscuits to those elsewhere), pastries, pie or cake? If not, what does your sweet tooth crave?
All of those! And chocolate, obviously.
