This is my thirteenth review, having not being able to complete any for some time I thought I'd do any easier one. It feels a little strange revealing myself in 100 questions………. I hope you enjoy finding out more about me.1 - First Names:
2 - Pseudo(s)?
Well I have a number of these though they are not always used. My sister calls me Sparky as do a few of my friends, although when I was at work and not working for myself, the jocular lads in my office decided to call me Break dancer, on account of the fact that I suffer from Epilepsy, very droll, but I could see the funny side, that was back in the days before this Political Correctness reared it's ugly head, after all it was only words. However my wife and daughter call me Little Green Man - I know, god knows why and I don't care to speculate on the reasons why, I'm 5' 8" tall so not little and Green? They also call me Monkey boy. Not going to speculate on that one either. I didn't realize I had so many.
4 - Towns? (Birthplace and living town)
I was born in the East End of London, Cockney land, oh but look at it now. Very proud I am to come from there too. These days, it looks a bit to far east of London now. But go there to see my mum who still lives near the Roman Road and Victoria Park. I was born in St Andrews Hospital, Bromley by Bow and lived just of the Roman Road for the first twelve years of my life. Then I lived just off the Grove Road near Mile End until I was almost twenty one. I got married and lived in Walthamstow until 1991 which is when I moved to my present address,
I now live near Chadwell Heath, Romford, Essex well that is in my address but it is a London Borough.
6 - Age?
Born in 1954 so currently as this is 2007, 53 years old going on 17 well that's as old as I feel anyway in my outlook on life.
8 - Colour of the eyes?
Now I've just asked the two people closest to me what colour my eyes are my daughter who is an artist told me green/brown and my wife said they were grey. I think I will go with the artist as she knows her colours. So the colour of my eyes are Green/Brown.
10- Astrological and Chinese sign:
My astrological sign is Tauras being born in early May and my Chinese sign is the Horse. I used to read the horoscope until I realized how many other people they applied to. The time I've read I will be coming into money or there is a new love in my life…………
12 - I don't like?
a) Dishonesty or unfairness to others
b) Eggs, boiled, fried or scrambled but will eat them in a Quiche, cake or Zambaglione.
c) False people, I prefer to be honest even it means losing a friend.
d) Political Correctness, in my opinion, this has changed all of our lives for the worse.
e) People labelling plain old dislike or prejudice, Racism, because Racism is in everybody and the word has been totally misused. Read a dictionary before using the word, an older one not one that has been change to fit the word how it is being used today.
f) People swearing out loud on trains or the like, especially in front of ladies and young children. Ok, I swear sometimes but never in that situation or anything like it. It shows a total lack of respect for all around.
g) Our justice system being abused. For any faults it has it is still one of the best in the world. I'd rather be on trial here than anywhere else in the world, but how long will that last.
h) The English way of life being steadily eroded. Nobody seems proud of or is wary of being English today. Yet all other cultures are embraced. Recently it was reported in a TV programme that England lost the Rugby World Cup Final and in the next breath England was forgotten and they were British again. I wonder if this would have happened if the team in England's place were Irish, Scottish or Welsh, I am certain that the relevant Country would have been spoken about throughout the report, why not England?. I am just at a loss why we aren't more proud of our Country.
i) People not buying a POPPY on the 11th November every year to honour our soldiers and if I forget, I still buy one or put my money in the right box. This used to be a big thing and I can remember everybody being proud to wear one. We used to get them in school. Lest we forget whatever you think of war that these brave soldiers put their lives on the line to keep us and our loved ones free and living the way we do. If you don't buy one currently, do so this year, it's in a couple of weeks time.
j)The fact that Scotland now has its own Parliament as do Wales and England doesn't, it is full of Scotsman, apparently, I am not 100% on this, only Scotsmen can sit in the Scottish Parliament.
Also, if I carried on with this question too much, it would be a review in itself.13 - If you can meet one person of your choice, dead or alive, known or not, who would this be?
14 - What do you like to do, generally, during the weekend???
Used to have a caravan by the sea, which we went to every Friday night till late Sunday. Since we gave that up basically nothing but work indoors or watch sport. I must change that around. We obviously go out if there is somewhere worth going.
16 - The first thing you do when you come back from school or work?
I Work from home so unless I've been on Site I just go downstairs to the living room and have a cup of tea. Not very exciting.
How could I have left out the Eagles, Gary Moore, Peter Greens Fleetwood Mac, Genesis, Yes and Pink Floyd.18 - The most beautiful song, which exists for you?
19 - The singer or band that you prefer?
That's easy, Eric Clapton, he is my favourite but again there are many on my list.
Eric has been going since the sixties, I saw him in 1969 at a free concert in Hyde Park, he was in Blind Faith with Stevie Winwood, Rick Grech and Ginger Baker. I saw in a recent interview that Eric himself thinks he has got slower or worse depending how you look at it. You only have to see him in concert to know that his magic is still there.
21 - The advertising that you prefer?
None, sorry but advertising is so boring, especially the ones telling you to claim compensation, also the insurance and the girls at night asking you to text them what a total bore. Ok I relent, I do like clever adverts and funny ones.
23 - If no, are you happy?
As happy as most people after 32 years, we all change.
25 - Have you ever known an unhappy love affair?
Aren't they all, the reason I don't get involved is they all end up unhappy as someone is bound to get hurt, it would be unhappy for me because of the deceit involved, also the wrong done to my wife and family.
27 - Have you ever read "NOUS DEUX" (to make the bond with England, "Nous deux" is a tabloid)?
If I could speak French then I might but as I can't obviously no.
29 - Your bedside book?
I hate reading in bed, I will leave that one there.
31 - Your society game (or console) favourite?
I have to use whatever is in the house and buy games accordingly. Currently it is the Ninetendo Gamecube which I like, I was also bought a Ninetendo DS with the Brain Training game by Dr Kawashima, which I find helps with your mental sharpness especially in Mathematics, been using it almost every day since Christmas and it has helped. It also has Sudoku which I didn't like but now find interesting. The games on the gamecube I play are varied I like to get my frustrations out on the games so shooting games are a must.
33 - What do you buy when you go to the faire when you are hungry?
Candy Floss or popcorn can't be sure what's in the rest.
35 - Colour preferred?
I used to like Blue but any shade of Purple or violet is now my favourite.
37 - The quotation, which you prefer?
It's one word not so much a quotation as an expression of feelings but I'm not writing it here. Can't really remember quotations but statements "Are you feeling lucky, Make my day".
39 - Cult movies?
Alien in fact Aliens as well - Sigourney Weaver is excellent in both.
A Clockwork Orange - why they banned this for so long is beyond me when I saw it at the cinema I saw it as it was supposed to come over a film against violence
A fistful of dollars
Seven not sure if this a cult but the film is excellent
Monthy Pythons: Life Of Brian is this a comedy?
41 - Your more beautiful quality?
I would like to say my honesty but that's for others to judge, loyalty must be there, definitely not looks.
43 - Your worst nightmare?
Losing my hearing so that I couldn't listen to my music.
45 - The most beautiful thing, which one made for you by love?
The oil painting of a Tiger that my daughter painted for my 50th birthday.
47 - A fairy lends his magic wand to you for a wish: what you make?
To get the winning ticket to the lottery and have enough cash to enjoy my life. It's taking too long earning that kind of money on Ciao.
49 - What you think when you are not able to fall asleep the evening?
Doesn't apply I don't have that problem.
51 - If you have to buy a handbook to survive, that would be which?
"Ray Mears World of Survival" - Ray Mears.
53 - Quelle(s) peluche(s) partagent ton lit?
The last time I had a Teddy Bear was when I was about seven, but I now have the Typhoo Chimp on my desk and Tipper the Tiger from the Puffkins Collection, bought by my daughter, on my sideboard. No I don't take it to bed.
55 - Pets?
We used to have two cats but one died of diabetes after we had been injecting him twice a day for about 18 months and the other just lost weightt until we had to say goodbye.
57 - With your brother and sister?
Sister………………. when I have to, I don't see her much, otherwise I wouldn't.
59 - And now?
Bugs Bunny, I'm still a child at heart and Bugs was always the best and always will be.
61 - Why the lady is big of her belly?
What sort of question is that, I can only say the same reason that the man is. Unless of course you mean she is pregnant.
63 - Were you already scandalmonger (to say evil of people behind their back)?
Don't think so although I think that most people get caught up in this at one time or another, if I have anything to say it is usually to the persons face that way you know what their reaction is and can act accordingly.
65 - The insult, which you say more?
Can't remember that one don't really insult often but as soon as I do it again I will edit this.
67- Do you speak another language than English?
I do try French, or the language of the Country I'm visiting if at all possible but no fluent language.
69 - The area (or the place) of England, which you do prefer?
Maldon in Essex, The river Blackwater, I have spent many happy days there doing many things.
71 - If one day you become hyper famous, in which field you famous you?
Tempted to say music but that is too obvious, so I will say survival it looks fun and think of all those activities while learning too.
73 - Where and how do you see you in 2010? In 2040?
By 2010 Still trying to either finish doing up my house or have sold it and moved to pastures green.
By 2040 I'd be 86 I'd love to make that and still be active with all of my faculties. If I do I hope that I would be enjoying life as it seems it's a struggle to finally get some money behind you in this life and when you do get some people seem too old to enjoy it. That's life though, totally unfair.
75 - The Earth is destroyed. You have time to flee, where you go?
The nearest Habitable planet. Hopefully one that doesn't have all my dislikes in question 12 and start again. Of course I'd have to find a lake to live beside.
77 - How many children do you want?
Had them all but would have liked one more which would have made three.
79 - With which resemble you?
Well I've been told I look like my Dad and my daughter was supposed to be the spitting image too, poor girl.
81 - You dye hair yourself. Which colour do you choose?
Not enough hair to dye and I couldn't get into all that fuss it used to be bad enough getting a haircut.
83 - Are you beginning, intermediary or expert when it acts of Internet?
I would say intermediary. There is always something more to learn.
85 - Which is your bottom of screen on your ordi?
What's an ordi? I think that must have got deleted on a previous questionnaire.
87 - How many times a week do you come on Internet? How many hours?
Everyday and the internet is on all day, less so on the weekend but I do dable.
89 - What was your resolution on the new year?
Don't have resolutions as they always get broken I just try to be better than I was the previous year. Usually works in some way.
91 - The best gift that somebody offers to you?
Nothing material as I can buy those myself, I would have the continued friendship or whatever of the people giving me the present and that is enough for me. Always have trouble at Christmas, etc as there is nothing I want. I always have to think of something though.
93 - Somebody offer to you a house. You choose an igloo, an Indian tipi, an African box, the same house as your parents, a farm?
A farm that's easy, as long as it comes with plenty of land, I could then find a spot for an artificial igloo, put up an Indian teepee and build a house like my parents.
95 - kilos to lose?
97 - The worst teacher do you have?
Don't have one, anyway who would keep one to know.
99 - What do you think of this questionnaire?
I won't say rubbish as it got me thinking in certain areas, I'll settle for interesting.
