It's all about me!

I've never actually done one of these memes before, so I pinched this one from Finn and thought I'd let you in on a few of my little secrets.

1. What is your occupation?
Administration, for the most part. I'm an estimator for a plumbing company, so I prepare quotes for the supply of bathroom and kitchen equipment for large projects (schools, sopping centres, blocks of flats, etc)

2. What color are your socks right now?
Nude. Which means none!! But I have a weakness for knee high black 'n' white stripeys....

3. What are you listening to right now?
The telly - I've got uber eye candy Supernatural on.

4. What was the last thing that you ate?
Chinese bbq pork and rice. Yum.

5. Can you drive a manual car?
YES! Having an automatic isn't really driving, it's just steering.

6. If you were a crayon, what color would you be?
Er........dunno. Red, maybe.

7. Last person you spoke to on the phone?
Some guy from the electricity company.

8. How old are you today?

9. Favorite drink?
Alcoholic, or non? I drink a lot of orange cordial. I'm rather partial to a nice Sauvignon Blanc, and a James Squire's amber ale on a Friday night is sweet ambrosia, and a vodka cranberry is quite nice too.

10. What is your favorite sport to watch?
Sport........actaully watch sport.........I don't think so. There's litterally only one sport that I can stomach watching, and that's cricket (sad, isn't it - though not as sad competition fishing :-)

11. Have you ever dyed your hair?
Yep. Never actually managed to dye it bubble-gum pink, although I would really have liked to.

12. Pets?
Two kitties and one husband

13. Favorite food?
Thai curries, and baked custards.

14. What was the last movie you watched?
The Covenant. Kind of witchcraft type movie, except the witches are boys. Was pretty good, I enjoyed it.

15. Favorite day of the year?
Saturday. All of them.

16. What do you do to vent anger?
Rant and rave and wave my arms about. Blow it all off and then it's over.

17. What was your favorite toy as a child?
Puppy. He was a plush toy - I loved him so much I wore all of his fur off.

18. What is your favorite, autumn or spring?
Both. The reds and yellows of autumn and the bright fresh greens of spring. The temperatire is perfect........wish it could stay like that all year.

19. Hugs or kisses?
Hugs, and then kisses, then more hugs!!!

20. Vanilla ice cream or chocolate?

24. Living arrangements?
Married, no (actual) kids, athough a certain someone who acts like one a lot of the time. Home owner (well, most of it - the bank still owns some!)

25. When was the last time you cried?
At the ballet. Saw the Matthew Bourne production of Swan Lake. It was fabulous - and needless to say the heros died at the end, and I got all misty-eyed. (Misty-eyed? Sobbing, more like it)

26. What is on the floor of your closet?
Shoes, and more shoes. And occasionally the cat.

28. What did you do last night?
Watched some teev and sewed hooks and eyes on one of my new gollars.

29. Favorite smells?
Clean sheets, mown grass, rain on a hot day, onions frying in olive oil.

30. What inspires you?
Shiny!! Oh, hang on, that's distracts me......

31. What are you afraid of?
Falling - not so much heights, as the potential for falling from them and hurting myself.

32. Plain, cheese or with-the-lot hamburgers?
Cheese and pineapple. Please don't hate me.

33. Favorite dog breed?

34. How many years at your current job?
4 and a half years.

35. How many states have you lived in?
2. New South Wales and denial. Unless you can count London as a state......

36. Have you ever been on a motorcycle or driven machinery?
Yep, been on a bike a number of times, although never in the driver's (so to speak) seat.

37. Favorite TV show?
Got a few a the moment - Heroes tops the list, Supernatural and Grays Anatomy are both pretty good, too.

38. Favorite day of the week?
Saturday, again.

39. Is your house phone a cordless?
No, unfortunately. The cordless died and we haven't got around to replacing it yet.

40. Ten centimetres of snow, or 40 degrees C?
I think snow, but that's only because I haven't spent a lifetime shovelling it out of the driveway. I remember one of my flatmates when we were living in the UK saying that she cried the first time she saw snow, it was so beautiful. One of my other flatmates, a Canadian, said that he sometimes cries when he sees snow, but he really didn't mean it in quite the same way....

So excitement!

Well, in a really nerdy kind of way.....

I fianlly got my wireless router today (after weeks of buggerising about, none of which was my fault) and brought it home and plugged it all in. And guess what? It worked perfectly, first go. No arsing about with IP addresses or anything, just plug and go. Awesome.

How's about that, huh? So now I can actually use the internet in the living room, instead of being chained to the modem in the furtherest reaches of the land of Spar Oom. This is an accomplishment worthy of a little nerdy excitement, I reckon!

There's even a vague pissabolity that I might update my blog more often.......

Oh, and I have decided to face facts - I'm not going to get the pavilion finished in time for Festival. Most of the sewing for the roof is now done, but I still have to put the eyelets in for the ropes, rope it all up, make the tent poles, make the walls, and all of the little fiddly bits in between. Oh well, at least some good inroads have been made for next year!! I've been busily making gollars, though, so I should be nice and toasty. At least some pre-festival sewing is being done.
