There Is No Theme To This Meme

I stole this meme from Larry at The Love Lemming:

1. When fastening pants, do you button or zip first?:
Suck in, strain, button, then zip. (I wear button fly jeans like 501's or my beloved G-Star low rise jeans much of the time, so it's more like 'button, button, button, button...')

2. What are your two favorite shows that were cancelled?:
Just two? Er, Firefly and Soap jump to mind.

3. What show is your geeky pleasure?:
The Amazing Race, does that classify as geeky enough? Of course, I'm also a big fan of all the various Star Trek franchises, I know that's geeky enough.

4. Favorite band or musician?:
Probably Scissor Sisters or Goldfrapp, at present. Wait 5 minutes and it may change.

5. Do you kiss on the first date?:
Hell YES! I love to kiss. You should always mistrust a man who doesn't like to kiss.

6. Do you believe in ghosts?:
Only when the lights are out; then I'm likely to believe in goblins, ghouls, axe murderers, Klingons... you name it.

7. Have you ever had an unexplainable ghostly experience?:
I was quite creeped out by the energy of some of the parts of the Port Arthur jail, but whether that was my imagination or not is for the jury to decide.

8. Do you kiss tentative, wild, intense, or sweet?:
Yes, yes, yes and yes. All four are important weapons to have in the arsenal.

9. Did you save yourself for marriage, and do you wish you did?:
I didn't even 'save myself' for the end of High School, so next question...

10. Do you sleep with stuffed animals or anything/one else at night?:
Ewww, no on the stuffed toys. Just me, no pyjamas, and sometimes someone else - but I'm such a light sleeper that if there is anyone else in the bed I usually don't get much sleep, if any. If there is someone in the bed, who wants to sleep anyway?

11. What's under your bed?:
A fold-up massage table (disused), a table-top drawing table, swing arm drawing lamp, some boxes of boring old porn stuff.

12. Thunderstorms, cool or scary?:
Very, very cool.

13. 4 Most important things in life?:
Honesty, compassion, kindness, joy, dark chocolate & hot sex.
(...and yes I know it's only supposed to be 4 things, but which of these could you do without?)

14. Favorite and Least Favorite Sounds?:
Laughter (favourite). Whistling or snoring (least favourite).

15. Favorite curse word?:
Toss up between 'shit' or 'fuck', sorry but I'm very Old School in that regard.

16. Have you ever picked up a hitch-hiker, or would you?:
I don't drive. Is that the kind of 'pick up' you meant?

17. Would you take $10 millon for your soul mate and live a life of celibacy?:
Can someone explain this question to me?

18. Would you rather be a trash man or proctologist?:
Professional or amateur? Of course, this is obviously a trick question. Who could choose just one?

19. Which would be worse, bleeding to death or starving to death?:
Bleeding I think. I mean, ewww all that mess versus being fashionably 'Hollywood emaciated'? No contest. (Of course I kid, it's a dumb question but starvation would be horrible.)

Ooohh, a meme, I'll bite ...

1. When fastening pants, do you button or zip first?:
Zip

2. What are your two favorite shows that were cancelled?:
Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel. I still pine over my weekly loss of Angel, Xander and Spike.

3. What show is your geeky pleasure?:
Don't really think I have any shows that could be considered a geeky pleasure; no reality shows, no sci-fi ... does Desperate Housewives count, or does that just make me a big queen?

4. Favorite band or musician?:
Way to many to count, my musical tastes are varied and eclectic depending on my mood. Though I do really love both Kylie and Robbie. Damn, I think I just answered my question above.

5. Do you kiss on the first date?:
Ahhhhh ha ha ha. Kiss on the first date? I've done way more than that, and it technically was not even a date :-)

6. Do you believe in ghosts?:
I'm open the the possability. I would be happier to believe in Vampires, especially if they look like Brad Pitt or David Boreanaz.

7. Have you ever had an unexplainable ghostly experience?: Just the one, I was about five years old. My cat had died a few days earlier, I came home from school one day and after walking inside and without looking down heard the patter of paws and felt him twirl around my feet and meaow as usual. He then ran ahead and I got a brief glimpse as he went into the next room. It was a moment later that I remembered that he was dead. Rather than being scared, it actually made me happy. I told my mum. She was kind at first and told me she knew I missed him. But when I kept on insisting that I saw him, she slowly got angry and eventually sent me to my room. Ghost or not, make up your own mind.

8. Do you kiss tentative, wild, intense, or sweet?:
Depends on who I am kissing.

9. Did you save yourself for marriage, and do you wish you did?:
Save yourself for marriage? Ahhhhh ha ha ha haaaaa. Thats so funny. This is the 21st Century, do people really do this any more? (aside from a few scary Fundy Christians). My ex-wife and I certainly didn't, and it brought an experienced hotness to our first time. Much better than being fumbling virgins.

10. Do you sleep with stuffed animals or anything/one else at night?:
Does sleeping with a stuffed Rabbit count? Nahhhh, I'm just being cheeky to the cuteness that is Rabbit. No stuffed animals. Sometimes other people (in a non-sexual way even - shock, I know).

11. What's under your bed?:
Floorboards, a fold-up bed for when The Kid or friends come over. Various ... uhhhh .... educational material.

12. Thunderstorms, cool or scary?:
Wayyyyy cool Dude.

13. 4 Most important things in life?:
Compassion. Wisdom. Love. Peace.


14. Favorite and Least Favorite Sounds?:
Toss up between the rain on a tin roof and the sound of the ocean, and my alarm clock going off in the morning.

15. Favorite curse word?:
Fuck, do I even have one? D'OH! Ummmmm, that one.

16. Have you ever picked up a hitch-hiker, or would you?:
Sure, if he was cute, and I don't even own a car.

17. Would you take $10 millon for your soul mate and live a life of celibacy?:
So, a choice of $10 million dollars but celibacy with my soul mate, or no truckloads of cash but lots of hot and horny sex. Hmmmmm. Depends on soul mate I guess. If he was up for celibacy, then it would be tempting. Otherwise, no price can be placed on my lovin'.

18. Would you rather be a trash man or proctologist?:
Yeah right, like either of those would ever happen. In the world of "lets just make shit up", I would rather be a retired billionaire.

19. Which would be worse, bleeding to death or starving to death?:
In the words of that cool chicken from the movie Chicken Run, "are those the only choices?".

I just love meme's, so much fun. Not that I am self obsessed or anything. Definately not. So thats enough about me, lets talk about you. So ... what do you think about me?

Thanks for playing along Bodhi. Funny stuff, especially the bit about sleeping with a stuffed Rabbit (who, gentle reader, is actualy a very cute real life man and not a toy - although, boytoy perhaps?).
