As seen on Lesley’s blog by way of Ms.Mac’s, which probably makes it a cousin-once-removed or something 🙂

1. PICK OUT A SCAR YOU HAVE, AND EXPLAIN HOW YOU GOT IT.

I have a scar on my right knee, kind of a recessed oval about 1cm long. It doesnt look much now but at the time it was the worse thing that I’d exerienced. I was about 8 or 9 years old and was out playing with friends. We were exploring some old air raid shelters near my house and of course I had to go and fall down a big hole into one of them. I landed on a sort of wire basket that had been dumped there and gouged a chunk out of my knee. I had never felt pain like it before, and it was bleeding like crazy. My friends, all bigger boys, had to pick me up and lift me back out of the hole. they helped me as far as home, but of course knowing my mum and fearing a telling off, they left me to make the last few yards alone. The cowards!

I could also mention the “knife wound” on my other knee, but that is really just a tale combining a pen knife, cleaning it on my jeans, a heavy hand and my own stupidity.

2. WHAT IS ON THE WALLS IN YOUR ROOM?

Paint. Oh, and a painting that my Sister bought us for Christmas, its an original abstract on canvas, painted to order for us, in matching colours for our lounge.

3. WHAT DOES YOUR PHONE LOOK LIKE?

It is a Nokia 3230 that was a hand-me-down from Paul.

4. WHAT MUSIC DO YOU LISTEN TO?

Recently I’ve been listening to lots of new stuff from The Fratellis, The View, The Feeling, lots of “The’s” in fact 🙂

5. WHAT IS YOUR CURRENT DESKTOP PICTURE?

I dont have one and very rarely ever do. This is for 2 reasons, Mostly because in the old days of 386’s and 486’s you needed all the performance you could get and constantly re-drawing the desktop picuture was an un-nessasary drain on resources. The other reason is that I dont like clutter and icons getting hidden by busy desktop picurres.

6. WHAT DO YOU WANT MORE THAN ANYTHING RIGHT NOW?

Some nice weather would be good, but thats quite a lame answer isnt it. I suppose I should say something like good health for all my loved ones. Oh, and maybe a plate of Olives 😉

7. DO YOU BELIEVE IN GAY MARRIAGE?

Of course, though I’m not 100% about it being called marriage.

8. WHAT TIME WERE YOU BORN?

07:40

9. ARE YOUR PARENTS STILL TOGETHER?

My Parents split when I was quite young. My Mum re-married when I was about 5 and I’m pleased to say my Stepfather and Mum are still together. They are also annoying the hell out of each other every day!

10. WHAT ARE YOU LISTENING TO?

The inane chatter of colleagues 🙂

11. DO YOU GET SCARED OF THE DARK?

Only if I can hear them screwing the lid down.

12. THE LAST PERSON TO MAKE YOU CRY?

Probably some random sad story on the news or something. I find that as I get older, I’m touched by things in a way I never was before, especially tragic stories of children suffering. I think some of this is about seeing my nephews grow and worrying about the world they will be living in.

13. WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE COLOGNE / PERFUME?

I have loads, a benefit of living with another boy, we can share smellies. My fave at the moment is probably Paco Rabanne’s Black XS. The picture of Will Chalker and his wonderous stomach on the box being an extra plus point.

14. WHAT KIND OF HAIR/EYE COLOUR DO YOU LIKE ON THE OPPOSITE SEX?

I dont really have a preference 🙂

15. DO YOU LIKE PAIN KILLERS?

Oh yeah, I love those Paracetamol. Q. Why are there no Aspirin in the jungle? A. Because the parrots-ate-em-all.

16. ARE YOU TOO SHY TO ASK SOMEONE OUT?

Not shy, just scared of the consequences should Paul find out 😉

17. FAVE PIZZA TOPPING?

We rarely eat pizza, when we do its probably something like a meat feast for me, I do like the peppperoni. When I was a lot younger, fitter and thinner, I regularly indulged in a Pollo al forno from Monroes in Mexborough. That chicken and Mushroom was always better when served up by Darren the nice boy behind the counter. Thats another story in itself!

18. IF YOU COULD EAT ANYTHING RIGHT NOW, WHAT WOULD IT BE?

I’m actually eating a sandwich of salad and Turkey breast in a Poppy seed roll.

19. WHO WAS THE LAST PERSON YOU MADE MAD?

Myself? I do that a lot unfortunately. Other than that, it was probably Paul, something about my driving usually.

20. IS ANYONE IN LOVE WITH YOU?

Yes.

Now it’s your turn. Go on, you know you want to.

    I do love that aspirin in the jungle joke!

    Should I know who Will Chalker is or is he just another random hot guy?
