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.

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

What, in your opinion, is the point to life?
Well, there’s a tricky question and no mistake. I’ll just go with “be nice to everyone and make a difference” and try not to think about how little our 70 years matters to a 13 billion year old universe or even to Chk’B’Grkk, a sanitation engineer from Glop Minor in the Beebop galaxy.

What was your most recent lie? You don’t have to get really specific obviously.
I never lie. There you go.

What country do you consider the strangest?
Most other countries seem strange in some way – different customs, different laws, different food and culture.

What’s your funniest story involving a car?
There was one time long ago when we got in a friend’s car and he accidentally set the alarm. “Right, nobody move” were his exact words as I recall. Obviously he set it off when he tried to disarm it. So at least he knew it worked.

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

If you didn’t have to sleep, what would you do with the extra time?
Not have to sleep? But sleeping’s one of my favourite things. If I didn’t have to sleep I’d spend the extra time researching a cure for fellow sufferers of “sleep immunity syndrome”.

What job would you be terrible at?
Nearly everything! Especially stuff where I’d have to deal with people. Or any sort of manual labour as I’m not really string enough to lift stuff around.

When was the last time you climbed a tree?
Too long ago to remember. I have a vague memory that I might have climbed a tree once.

Do you count your steps?
No. The totals wouldn’t make for very good reading, to be honest. I would say “I need to get more exercise” but that would imply I already get some…

What’s the dumbest way you’ve injured yourself?
Many years ago after watching The Pogues in concert near Stuttgart, I exited the building (quite drunk) and stepped off the edge of the steps. I fell straight forwards onto my face – no attempt at all to save myself (and therefore no broken wrists). My glasses got a bit bent and I got a scrape on my face, but it was more embarrassing than anything 🙂

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

What’s your favourite way to spend a weekend?
Relaxing, a bit of reading, some PS4 and Netflix 🙂

Who do you admire most in the world?
Who? No-one in particular. Lots of people have great qualities. We could distil all those and create some sort of super-amazing person. But I think it’s better that everyone has something admirable about them. Share the love!

What do you regret not doing?
I regret not doing pretty much everything I didn’t do. Similarly I regret doing a load of stuff I did do. So we’re even.

If you see a puddle on the ground, do you walk around it or over/in it?
Since I don’t typically walk around the place in 100% waterproof shoes I generally try not to submerge my feet in muddy water.
