Know Thyself


The lovely Rachel out of Tales from The Village has tagged me on this Q&A thing inspired by The Guardian, and well… I thought it would be quite interesting to go and do it too… :)

It does have a few damn tricky questions tho… Damn it Rach… I should have read the questions before saying I’d do it… lol

So… here we go…

  • Which living person do you most admire, and why?

I wish that was an easy question to answer… A few months ago I’d answer that question without thinking twice… But that person passed away and the void was filled up by a small group of people… everyone has one thing or another to be admired about… You just have to look under the right light… So I can’t just pic one person… But I can say that there are a few VERY special people I would pick at any different time.

  • When were you happiest?

My family says I look my happiest now… I guess they could be right… I rather think that my happiest times are still about to come…

  • What was your most embarrassing moment?

You see… there’s one thing you need to know about me… I don’t get embarrassed, I think It’s a waste of time really… I much rather learning with my mistakes and try not to repeat them

  • Aside from property, what’s the most expensive thing you’ve bought?

That will be my camera… I got told off by Hales when I did it… It was a necessity at the time and all… Bit I lurves it… and I’ve been wanting for soooo long… just gonna have to make sure it pays itself soon… REALLY soon… :) hehehehe

  • What is your most treasured possession?

I don’t put stock in things I possess… I could live without any of the things I possess and still be happy… I rather treasure memories… The ones I love are the one thing I can’t live without…

  • Where would you like to live?

Somewhere near the coast… I love the sound of the waves at night… nothing more soothing… peaceful… But that’s just me. :)

  • What’s your favourite smell?

COFFEE…. freshly ground coffee… ummmmm…

  • Who would play you in the film of your life?

Jack Black! No doubt about that. :)

  • What is your favourite book?

Who Moved My Cheese?” by Spencer Johnson. Every time I read it it means something different to me… and it always helps…

  • What is your most unappealing habit?

Reading everyone around me… I did it for a living for far too long and bad habits die hard… It is specially frustrating because there is this ONE person I can never read… yeah… you know who you are…

  • What would be your fancy dress costume of choice?

Pirate… or Ninja… or a Pirate Ninja!!!! That would be cool wouldn’t it??? That or I’d go totally nerd and be a Mage. :)

  • What is your earliest memory?

Christmas at Grandma’s… Actually most of my favourite childhood memories happened there… There was my safe harbour until very recently… Sometimes I miss her so much.

  • What is your guiltiest pleasure?

Do pleasures need to make you guilty??? Well… they don’t make ME feel guilty… ummm… maybe Child-Free weekends away… no… they are a necessity… one that we haven’t indulged in far too long…

  • What do you owe your parents?

Pretty much who I am today…

  • To whom would you most like to say sorry, and why?

I try not to leave things unsaid… To be honest… I’m awful at it keeping my stupid mouth shut when I have something that needs to be said… And sorry is one of them… Right now… I can’t think of anyone I need to say sorry to right now… :-/

  • What or who is the greatest love of your life?

Trying my best not to sound corny here… so… am gonna go with my kiddos! 😉

  • What does love feel like?

As one of my favorite poets would say: Is and excruciating pain that doesn’t hurt… Makes sense? No??? Well.. neither does love… But we all still want it… :)

  • What was the best kiss of your life?

I was 8… She was 7 if I’m not mistaken… She kissed me at the top of the stairs… I ended up rolling down the stairs… lol… Of course there were some much more intense  and great ones and all after that one… But that was epic… :)

  • Which words or phrases do you most overuse?

I probably use the word “cool” way too much… I say “no problemo” a lot too… and also variations on OK… :)

  • What is the worst job you’ve done?

The worse was also the best one… Let’s just leave it at that… (ex-boss reads the blog sometimes…)

  • If you could edit your past, what would you change?

I’d like to say I wouldn’t change anything… but that would be wrong.. I’d definitely make sure I wouldn’t give up on having on a career. Yes, being a full time dad was great, but today I am having a real bad time getting back on my feet…

  • What is the closest you’ve come to death?

About 15 seconds… And it was averted by a phone call… Believe what you will… I Believe it was supernatural…

  • What do you consider your greatest achievement?

Without any shadow of doubt… my children… yeah… I’m a proud daddy…

  • When did you last cry, and why?

Last Sunday… Too much happening all at once… I was feeling out of dept…

  • How do you relax?

Relax??? What’s that??? :)

  • What single thing would improve the quality of your life?

Some normality…

  • What is the most important lesson life has taught you?

Life is so repetitive… but it is our duty to make it FUN!

Right… now I’m supposed to tag some people… so the victims… ahem… chosen people are: @Livvyssmile @DiscoMcDisco @pinkjellybaby @Kesiahosking @MrsTeepot

And if you wanna do it too… well… consider yourself tagged. :)
