Since I wrote my last post I've had a few ideas about new ones but by the time I get to writing them , either I've forgotten all about it or it seems especially lame so I stole this meme from Anne at Cooking and All that Jazz.

People say "stop the world, I want to get off" and I've never understood but i do now. Let this be a diversion from the whole sorry mess

1. What was the last thing you put in your mouth?  Coke. It's so hot here, I wanted something cold and bubbly. And I wonder why I gain weight 

2. Pajamas or gown? Truthfully? usually it's an old shirt or singlet. I have a beautiful cotton gown I bought for summer but I rarely wear it

3. Worst physical pain you ever been in? Probably labour. But I've had a hard time with a torn muscle in my back (three weeks to normality) and toothache

4. Favorite place you’ve ever been? My own bed in my own home

5. How late did you stay up last night? elevenish

6. If you could move somewhere else, where would you move to? I ask myself this question often. I have no idea

7.  Christmas or New Year? Christmas

8.  When was the last time you cried? At Liam's wedding? well, I've probably cried since then, I cry at the tv, I cry when I laugh and when I'm tired 

9. What's the last photo on your phone? A screen shot of a long lost relative

10. Two of your favorite movies? Something I haven't seen before. There are so many movies, I never watch the same one twice

11. What's your favorite season? The one we are moving toward. Except summer, thats at the bottom of the list

12. Which famous person would you like to meet? None of them, I'd just stand there and say something awkward

13. If you could talk to ANYONE right now, who would it be?
 Anyone who is up for a chat. Until they become repetitive

14. Are you a good influence? Depends on the day and the person

15. Does pineapple belong on a pizza? Who am I to say. My current favourite pizza is a Thai style one with mayo on it, not exactly traditional

16.  You have the remote, what show would you be watching right now? I picked a show on Netflix and then decided to blog instead so none though you could suck me in with Ambulance or The Crown

17. Three people who you think will play along? Whoever is stuck for ideas or thinks they can write interesting answers

18. First concert? I don't even know. I remember dropping my 14 year old alone at Metallica though. Thsat was like my own first concert

19. Favorite food? Not salads

20. When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? Nothing n particular

No. 13 made me smile. I am the exact same.
Hopefully your 'whole sorry mess' will pass.

I love sitting to chat with a new person, I can always tell if they are going to be friends in the future with me. Coz we share that same unclassifiable weirdness.

The rest of the list is too changeable to get involved with.

I hope your present state moves along there with nothing to see..... *smile*

I never wear pyjamas, always a nightshirt. I find pyjama bottoms really uncomfortable, they bunch up everywhere. I don't know why anyone wears them.

I used to think I'd like to move to Australia. After all the bush fires, I've given up that idea. But New Zealand is still appealing - a comfortable climate, not many people, spectacular scenery. But at my age I'm not going to uproot myself and start over somewhere else.

Indeed, I hope the "whole sorry mess" becomes a bit less messy.

Anne in the kitchen said...

I join the others hoping the whole sorry mess will soon pass.
Thanks for playing along. I love to see the comments something like this generates

Elephant's Child said...

I do like to see other people's answers to questions like these, but rarely play myself. Too boring? Perhaps.
I wear skin to bed which probably comes into the too much information category.
The sweaty season (aka summer) is emphatically not my favourite season. Ever.
I would like to live somewhere beside water. Moving or still, with a small preference to oceans/rivers rather than lakes.

Graham Edwards said...

I love Elephant Child's answer to pyjamas or gown. Being a man I suppose the answer would usually be pyjamas. However skin is a great answer. I've never, since the days of the freezing bedrooms of my childhood, been able to wear clothes in bed. It seems the most unnatural thing anyone could do.

Practical Parsimony said...

I answered all these on Anne's blog. It was fun. The one person I would like to talk with is my mother who died in 1993.

Ramana Rajgopaul said...

I enjoyed this post so much that I will repeat the questions and give my answers in my blog.

Yorkshire Pudding said...

I would have a hard time with Q9 as I do not own a mobile phone. This is just one example of how questionnaires can be flawed or misleading through insufficient consideration of the respondent's position. Your response to Q14 is another example - Are you a good influence? Depends on the day and the person.

There has been a little rain and more forcast so that's a start

kylie said...

Unclassifiable weirdness is a good term!
Though I tend to think everyone is weird

kylie said...

You have to remember that most of us don't face fire, although we probably all know someone who has at some time

kylie said...

It's a bit of fun, eh?

kylie said...

I've seen a lot of skin so not tmi 😊
Water is always soothing, I think

kylie said...

I have seen this types of things done exceptionally well when the respondent is creative but yes, the question design is usually shallow

kylie said...

I once thought it was glamorous to sleep in skin but now I just get a cold back or a draft on my arm and clothing makes sense.

kylie said...

I don't think anyone gets used to losing a parent

kylie said...

I enjoyed your answers

Graham Edwards said...

Kylie, if there is one thing I have never pretended that I am when naked, is glamorous. To me a naked male body usually looks ridiculous at best.

kylie said...

A naked male can be better looking than ridiculous!
But yea, my idea of glamour was misguided :)

LL Cool Joe said...

I've also answered the questions on my blog. Thanks for getting me out of hibernation! I like your answers.

jenny_o said...

I enjoyed your answers, kylie! I like that you didn't stick to straightforward answers; it made it more interesting for sure. I'm contemplating doing this as a post but it might have to wait for a week or two. Thank you for the idea :)

baili said...
