I'm bored, my eyes are recovering so: As seen on microgirl's journal.



1.Name someone with the same birthday as you?
Wesley Snipes

2.Where was your first kiss?
A bar in Dublin, somewhere near that big football place on the northside.

3.Have you ever seriously vandalised someone else's property?
Nope, I put a stone through a window of an abandoned shed that bordered on my secondary school though, hardcore.

4.Have you ever hit someone of the opposite sex?
Never in anger, the occasional friendly dead arm competition but never in anger.

5.Have you ever sung in front of a large number of people?
Yes, I was a boy soprano, and then I did karaoke once in college.

6.What's the first thing you notice about the preferred sex?
Their face - boobs is boobs is boobs, and they're great but a face is more interesting.

7.What really turns you on?
Nudity and intelligence, I'm not sure what order its in though. They're the top two in any case.

8.What do you order at coffee shops?
Grande hazelnut cappuchino - though I'd prefer a regular large mug of coffee and I only ever ordered that hazelnut thing a few times but these days but the people in the coffee shop know my order and always have it ready by the time I get to the top of the queue, so I haven't the heart to change it.

9.What is your biggest mistake?
I suppose it would have been picking Applied Physics as my college course, if I'd gone with what I wanted instead of listening to the "advice" of people who "knew" "better" then I might have a degree now. I don't really consider it a mistake though. Without the experiences I've had, be they good or bad, I wouldn't be who I am today.

10.Have you ever hurt yourself on purpose?
No

11.Say something totally random about yourself.
When I was a kid, I used to see ghosts, loads of times.

12. Has anyone ever said you looked like a celebrity?
Two, at different times - Nicholas cage and Johnny Depp. Depp is the one that gets mentioned more, and I can *sort* of see it. Similar bone structure or something.

13.Do you still watch kiddy movies or tv shows?
Hell yes, though not that puppet crap - Megas, Samurai Jack, Justice League, Teen Titans. They're better than a lot of the grown up stuff thats out these days (though things in that department are improving with Lost, Smallville, Firefly and so on. I was surprised to see continuity, plot twists and fairly dark elements turning up in those cartoons - darned good.

14.Did you have braces?
No, I'm lucky in that I have excellent teeth. The lower front ones are a little crowded but otherwise I have an almost perfect set.

15.Are you comfortable with your height?
Yes, I've only brained myself on low doorways a few times in my life and I can reach the top shelf of anything.

16.What is the most romantic thing someone of the opposite sex has done for you?

16.What is the most romantic thing someone of the opposite sex has done for you?
<answer withheld on the grounds that it is no one's business but my own.

17.When do you know it's love?
Can you? Unless someone has a specific set of symptoms to list me then I can't say for certain.

18.Do you speak any other languages?
French and Irish, badly. I can possibly get by with french given a refresher course but if you dumped me in the gaeltacht (an irish speaking area of ireland for you ferriners) I would probably die trying to get out.

19.Have you ever been to a tanning salon?
In one, yes. Used on, no.

20.What magazines do you read?
PC art and design, some 3D stuff.

21.Have you ever ridden in a limo?
No

22.Has anyone you were really close to passed away?
My paternal grandad died several years back, shortly after my maternal grandmother. I was close to both of them.

23.Do you watch mtv?
Some of the shows - if I flick past "pimp my ride" and it looks interesting then yes, otherwise no. I liked Jackass when it was on but Viva La Bam sort of pisses me off, its jackass with the fun replaced by attitude.

24.What's something that really annoys you?
Willful ignorance, it drives me spare. I try to know what I'm talking about before I'll develop an opinion so I always have a problem understanding why others don't do the same. When I hear people saying "them transvesestitees, dey're all feckin peeeedophiles" or "dem immigrants, they all get a phone and a car when they get off the boat" it makes my blood boil.

25.What's something you really like?
Painting models - its like a sort of meditation.

26.Do you like Michael Jackson?
No - I think he's guilty of molesting those kids but I also believe he's too damned insane for it to be malicious or evil, he can't see whats wrong with it.

27.Can you dance?
Like my dad, so.. no.

28.What's the latest you have ever stayed up?
I've stayed up all night several times, I once stayed awake for about 72 hours, which I later learned can kill you.

30.Have you ever been rushed by an ambulance into A&E?
No

31.Do you actually read these when other people fill them out?
Not as a rule, though this one is pretty good.
