As Zippora says, it is this time of year, and when I got a meme from dande it seemed a good idea to join it, at least while waiting for my SL day to come (at the end I’ve selected the Friday… I wonder if everything still is where I left it :-p).
But sending notecards? It is easier to post it, even if I risk being lame ;-p
Welcome to the 2010 edition of getting to know your friends. Okay, here’s what you’re supposed to do, and try not to be lame and spoil the fun!
Change all the answers so that they apply to you. Then send this to a whole bunch of people you know, INCLUDING the person that sent it to you. Some of you may get this several times (that means you have lots of friends).
Name: London Spengler
01. What is your occupation
02. How many items in your inventory?
A bit over 5000
03. What are you listening to right now?
TV cartoons; they keep my daughter hypnotized so I can write this :-p
04. What was the last thing you ate?
At the time I started writing this, we just came back from having our breakfast, where we had half of a chicken/lettuce/mayonnaise “hor d’oeuvre” (we call them “pinchos”), and half of a toasted croissant with butter and marmalade. I didn’t share the tea :-p
05. Can you drive a stick shift?
Yep, as most people at Spain; we don’t like automatic gears.
06. If you were a crayon, what colour would you be?
One of those rainbow ones, that look so cute but are sooo useless.
07. Last person you spoke to on the phone?
Maybe my mother, six days ago? I’m not a phone fan.
08. Do you like the person who sent you this?
Yes, I do, or I wouldn’t take the effort answer all this crap :-P
09. How old are you today?
42 years old. But I am proud of age giving me maturity, gravitas… now, the fucking little wrinkles round the eyes, aRrrRrRRGhhHhh!
Or three years and something.
10. Favourite drink?
Decaff-latte-capuchine-diet-choc and strawberry coffee.
Kidding, it is milk :-) When traveling I like to ask for a “medium” coffee and see what happens: where I live you get a huge breakfast cup, at some places people gives you half of a little cup, and you can get lot of strange variations in the middle ranges.
11. What’s your favourite sport to watch?
Mmm… hard one…
12. Have you ever dyed your hair?
Long ago I had some golden highlights done to me. Strangely enough, all pictures from that period of my life seems to have disappear, sometimes with extreme prejudice. Same about the perm age.
At RL? A hamster and a husband. At SL? mmm…
14. Favorite food?
Many, but octopus is probably one of the best (delicious!); it also gives extra fun when I describe the dish to foreign people *grins widely*.
15. Last movie you watched?
Dances with Avatars.
16. Favourite day of year?
17. What do you do to vent your anger?
I make incisive, quiet comments. If that doesn’t work, I start fuming and browse for “hitman”.
18. What was your favourite toy as a child?
Building games (Exin’s “Tente”).
19. Whats your favourite season?
There is a tie between spring and autumn. Summer and Winter aren’t bad, too.
Life is so nice :-p.
20. Hugs or Kisses?
Brief kisses, usually a peck in the cheek or lips. I probably give a pair of dozens of them a day.
21. Cherry or blueberry?
22. Do you want your friends to send you this back to you?
Now I took the effort? Sure! Let’s spread the pain :-)
23. Who is most likely to respond?
Oh, no, I couldn’t point at anybody… that would make it easier for the others!
24. Who is least likely to respond?
Obviously dande, since she sent it to me in the first time. Isn’t logic nice?
25. When was the last time you laughed?
Around a pair of hours ago, when I was supposed to be working. It was only a brief rest, I promise!
26. When was the last time you cried?
Often when seeing films, and SL has given me its share of tears. If we ignore both, years ago.
27. What is on the floor of your closet?
Jerseys, and a poor pair of tracksuits that we don’t use anymore.
28. Who is the friend you have had the longest you are sending this to?
I’m cheating here, since I am not “sending” it… How about my oldest SL friend, which is Nat, instead?
29. Favourite smells?
Wet soil, grass just cut (I dids scythe a field once, it was interesting… at first.).
30. Who inspires you?
To do what?
31. What are you afraid of?
Mime players (or, more seriously, the classic metaphysical fears; nothing original here, please, keep walking :-p).
32. Plain, cheese or spicy hamburgers?
Cheese, and spicy, and also with a bit of pineapple. Why be a gourmet when you can be a gourmand?
33. Favourite car?
Tough ones; I tend to bump a lot.
34. Favourite cat breed?
Not a particular one. I like those that let you tickle their tummy, but also with a bit of spunk, and even better if they are crazy.
35. Number of keys on your key ring?
36. How many years in your current job?
No easy answer for that; I don’t have a standard job, but my longest (and still active) relation with an enterprise is ten years.
37. Favourite day of the week?
None at all, but I have a weak spot for the 30 of February.
38. How many states have you lived in?
We don’t have states, but I’ve always lived in the same city anyway; it’s comfy and suits me well.
39. Do you think you’re funny?
Not really, I know that, at first, people laughs out of embarrassment, wondering what the hell was I trying to do. The good thing is that after a while they get accustomed, so they end thinking I am fun, even if I am not. It is a kind of Pawlovian reaction.
40. Favourite tree?
41. Favourite all time music Album/CD
It isn’t easy but, if there must be only one… Queen’s Highlander OST?
