What time did you get up this morning?
I usually arise sometime before I wake. What? Oh, you mean when I actually got out of bed …. that would be 6am.

Diamonds or pearls?
Definitely diamonds. I love diamonds, shown by the fact that I wear 21 of them. For those of you curious as to how I could wear so much Bling I say 13 in one ring, 1 large in another, 1 on an earring and 6 on a necklace pendant. What can I say … I am both gay and also a Leo. We don’t do subtle. I need sparkle people, SPARKLE!

What was the last film you saw at the cinema?
Batman Begins, I enjoyed it. And holy hotties Batman, is Christian Bale cute or what?

What is your favorite TV show?
Desperate Housewives, I am completely addicted. You bitches keep your comments to yourselves. .

What is your middle name?
John (Yawn)

What is your favorite cuisine?
Hard to pick between Thai (all those yummy herbs) and Italian (all those yummy waiters).

What food do you dislike?
Well, being a vegetabletarian (no, that’s not misspelling, I’m using Rabbit’s word here, now he’s got me saying it) anything with meat is a definite no go. I’m not a big fan of Lebanese cuisine. And I don’t like French much either, it’s largely as bad and unpalatable as their films and really UGLY looking cars.

What is your favorite crisp/chip flavor?
Red Rocks Sweet Chilli and Sour Cream, with their Lime and Black Pepper coming a very close second. Yum!

What is your favorite CD at the moment?
The Best of East 17, I picked it up in the bargain bin at a recent jaunt into the city. Don’t you worry cause its Alright. It’s a House of Love people.

What is your favorite Song?
Too many of them, you are going to have to be more specific than that.

What kind of vehicle do you drive?
Moi does not drive, it is beneath one. But if you must know I have a chauffeur driven Mercedes Benz …. OK so technically it’s a Government State Transit bus, but I am correct. I do pay someone to drive for me, and they are Mercedes Benz.

What's your favourite sandwich?
The Vegetarian on Wheat at Subway, with all salads including those yummy jalapeno peppers. Don’t even think of asking if I prefer the 6” or the 12”.


What characteristics do you despise?
Narrow Minded. Homophobic. Self Righteous. In fact, just think of the worse traits in any Fundamentalist Christian and you got a good idea.

What is your favourite article of clothing?
But there are so many, and I love them all. It’s like being forced to choose your favourite child, when each is so special in so many ways. But if I can only pick one, just the one, then it would have to be my 3-piece suit. Elegant, expensive, somewhat intimidating (I have been told it makes me look like a well dressed mafia boss), and just a little over the top. In the words of Rabbit, “I make this look GOOD.”

If you could go anywhere on vacation, where would you go?
Hawaii. Sun, surf, palm trees. A little US retail therapy, some Hawaiian shirts. Not to mention way cute, tanned and buffed surfer DUDES!

What colour is your bathroom?
It’s like completely white, sweetie darling sweetie. Blindingly fab, but you can always wear your apr├Ęs-ski goggles in the shower.

What color pants are you wearing?
Blue. Unless your colour blind. Or it’s dark. Or I’m under coloured or UV lights.

Where would you retire?
Usually to my bed at the end of the day, but I am always open to other possibilities.

When is your favourite time of day?
Evening’s, though on week days I would have to say 5.00.01pm.

What is your most memorable birthday?
Due to parental difficulties, my scheduled 21st birthday party was cancelled. A few years later my then wife threw me a party for my 24th birthday and called it my 21st (and 36 months in small print – bless her) Party. It was a party of absolutely epic proportions. There are probably still people waking up from it somewhere. I am told that I had a brilliant night. There were more than enough witnesses to verify this.

What is the last thing you ate?
I think his name was ….. kidding, I just couldn’t resist that one. As if I would get his name… OK, seriously, it was some Thai for lunch from across the road here at work.

If you were a crayon, what colour would you be?
Black. In fact, you got any blacker?

What is your favourite Cartoon Character?
Equal first between Daggart and Norbert from Angry Beavers. Love the Beaver, bet you thought you would never here a gay man utter those words.

What's your favourite flower?
Frangipani. What, you were expecting me to say pansy? 


What kind of laundry detergent do you use?
The kind that cleans clothes… who gives a shit? What do I look like, the domestic help?

Do you wish on stars?
Of course, I do. I wish that Brad Pitt was my husband.

What is your shoe size?
I wear a nine and a half. Gee, such excitement. Try to contain yourselves.

Do you have any pets?
Ummmm, does a Rabbit count?

Last person you talked to on the phone?
To The Kid, on her mobile. She needs it for emergencies you understand, she needs to be able to get in contact with me day or night. Then I can call her Mother. But seeing as though she just happens to have said mobile, and I have a work phone, the coincidence to engage in a little daily weekday gossip is too good to miss, don’t you think?

What did you want to be when you were little?
Bigger.

What are you meant to be doing now?
Work, but all this typing on my computer makes it seems to my colleagues that I am busy. Which actually I am, just not at this moment.

What do you first notice about someone?
If it’s a guy, his eyes. And the QT factor. If it’s a girl, her clothes.

What was your favourite toy as a child?
Lego, I loved my Lego. I had truckloads of the stuff. Funnily enough, and to my families and friends later amusement, I actually worked for Lego from 1989 to 1997. I loved that job.

Summer or Winter?
Summer. I like it hot and sweaty. If you answer Winter, you deserve to live in Melbourne.

Hugs or kisses?
Yes please.

Chocolate or vanilla?
The addictive personality in me says just cover the vanilla in chocolate, but if you make me choose only the one (damn you), then it’s chocolate.

Living arangements?
Breathing in an out and eating every now and again, not to mention not dying. That pretty much seems to cover it.


When was the last time you cried?
I felt like it when Kylie’s latest concert was postponed (especially when The Kid and I had tickets in the 2nd row centre!). Get well soon Kylie, we love ya.

What is under your bed?
(I answered this in previous Meme here)

How many cities have you lived in?
Sydney, its all I need. I think it was ex Prime Minister Paul Keating who said anyone not living in Sydney in Australia is merely camping out.

Favorite movie of all time?
Fight Club. Awesome movie and a great book too. The movie has His Bradleyness too, need I say more?

Mountains or beach?
Beach. Do you see cute guys running around wearing next to nothing in the mountains? I think not.

Full names of your potential kids.
Well The Kid already has the first two names that my now ex-wife and myself picked out before we were even married, in fact not long after we first started going out. If she was a boy, the first two names would have been Trent Anthony. But I don’t see either a boy or more kids on the horizon any time soon. I have tried to impregnate my boyfriends thus far, but it has all come too nought. I am committed to keep trying.

What is your usual bed time?
People have usual bed times? Damn, you do learn something new every day. Let’s just say late, it’s somewhere around there. Mostly before breakfast, will that do?

Bodhi :-)
Sydney, Australia

Bodhi said...

OK, with fears of coming over all paternal here, I feel that I need to reply on some points that The Kid has made, being a responsible parent and all (hey, I said that with a straight face ... it was almost convincing...)

1. Thats Ceylon sapphires sweetie, not Salon. Gotta get the rocks right, its very important. Though, Brad knows, you will certainly find plenty of said rocks in many a good Salon.

2 What is this obsession with blonde and buffed surfers? I think all those trips up north to Port Macquarie and Coffs Harbour may have, in the words of Cartman from South Park, "warped your fragile little mind". Its certainly not from me (looking at far distance and shuffling feet). Just cause Rabbit happens to be a surfer. And looks good all dripping wet peeling off a wetsuit to reveal hot boardies .... hmmm ... and looks good in a tan, and I mean just a tan , and .... ohh never mind.

3. you like pansy's, huh? :-) Your such a fag hag! Your like a gay twink magnet at school, and you know it ...I'm so jealous.

4. Step away from His Bradleyness. He's mine bitch, back off or I will bitch slap you back to last week. Just a warning, and said with much love - sweetie, darling, sweetie.

5. Once determined weather boy is straight or gay, and having weeded out straight ones, be sure to give remainder my number if they are above age of consent.

6. I don't listen to my parents either. But I am comfortable in my delusion that you are only talking about your Mother and not me. Don't shatter this, just nod and pretend that you are still listening. Its all I ask.

Bodhi :-)
Sydney, Australia

The Other Andrew said...

M'kay, a couple of observations:

1. The apple falls pretty darn close to the tree; these obsessions with twinks, surfers, jewellery, Brad Pitt... need I continue?

2. Ashley, you kill me. Very funny!

3. Ashley, your spelling also kills me - and not in a good way! :-) Don't make me bust out the red pen, young lady.

4. I'm not sure who is the more obsessed with boys, you or your father, but at least you have a legitimate excuse, being a teenage girl and all.

5. Now if only we could get Rabbit to play, the circle would be complete.
