With thanks to Mistress Maddie, we have a new blog post! And to clarify (like Maddie did) we are not forty.
No. Forty is something that happens to other people.
This is a list of forty questions about us, that we will endeavour to answer as truthfully as we can. The answers will either be from me...
... Or from me, the Host.
Right. Let's get on with it, shall we?
1- Are you named after anybody? My two middle names are the first names of my grandfathers.
2- When was the last time you cried? Saturday night watching the reaction to Ore & Joanne's American Smooth to "Singin' in the Rain" on Strictly Come Dancing.
3- Do you like your hand writing? I do, actually. Despite having enormous hands, the Host is quite dextrous with a pen or pencil.
4- What's your favourite lunch meat? Lunch meat? I don't really know what that is. Do we have lunch meat in Great Britain?
5- Do you have any kids? Not in stock at the mo. The cupboard's a little bare...
6- If you were another person, would you be friends? Probably not as I'd easily be able to pick up on the other me's insincerity.
7- Do you use sarcasm? Surprisingly little.
8- Do you still have your tonsils? Yes.
9- Would you bunjee jump? No. I've got Broom for satisfying any death-defying urges.
10- Do you untie you shoes when you take them off? Of course! I'm not a heathen.
11- What's your favourite cereal? I'm not a huge fan of cereal, although I like oats once they're made into flap-jack.
12- Do you think you're strong? Not particularly. Although I'm stronger than I look.
13- What's your favourite ice-cream? I haven't had a good ice-cream for a long time. I used to like mint choc chip as a child, and I remember having a really nice black cherry ice-cream once. Oh, and a rhubarb & ginger one, too!
14- What's the first thing you notice about people? How annoying they are. Rude! Actually, I don't tend to notice many people. I mean, I see them, but I don't really take much notice of them. Unless it's a man with fantastic arms!
15- Red or Pink? Red. I have a difficult time seeing pink due to being colourblind. Actually, red's a bit of a bugger, too!
16- What is the least favourite thing you like about yourself? Where to start? Ooh, I know: Witchface's SubConscious.
Hey!17- What colour trousers and shoes are you wearing right now? Kind of a washed-out beige fine cord trousers and no shoes. How glam.
18- What are you listening to right now? iT's YoU, by Zayn, and it's all thanks to Strictly. The Week 2 Pro Dance (starring Gorka "the Corker" and Oksana) was set to Zayn's Pillowtalk - I'd never heard it before, so I immediately found it on YouTube, and from that clicked on iT's YoU and loved it!
19- What was the last thing you ate? Home-grown-and-made apple & blackberry crumble with double cream!
20- If you were a crayon would colour would you be? If I were a crayon I'd be more concerned about who managed to turn me into a crayon and how I was going to not be a crayon than what colour crayon I was. Have I said "crayon" enough, do you think?
I wish she was still here...
22- Who was the last person you talked to? My sister, Inexcuseable. But I've spoken to Cedplop the Annoying since then to tell him off for jumping up on my desk with muddy feet, but as he's not a person, I didn't think he counts.
23- Favourite sport? I don't take part in any sport, but I do enjoy watching cricket.
24- Favourite food? CAKE!
25- Real hair colour? Well, it's mostly
26- Do you wear contacts? Yes.
27- Scary movie or happy ending? Happy ending. After all, life is scary enough!
28- Last movie watched? Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home - you know, the funny time-travel one with the whales.
29- What colour shirt are you wearing? A blue-grey marl T-shirt.
30- Summer or winter? Neither. Spring!
31- Hugs or kisses? It depends who's on the receiving end...
32- Sweet food? CAKE! Haven't we been here before?
33- What book are you reading currently? Star Trek: 50 Artists. 50 Years.
34- What's on your mouse pad? My mouse. Is this a trick question? Actually, I don't have a mouse pad. What I have is an upturned issue of Attitude (May 2013 - the one with David Witts on the cover. My gods, he is quite something!)
35- What did you watch on TV last? Strictly Come Dancing - The Results! (week 3)
36- Favourite sound? I don't know that I have a favourite sound, but I can tell you my most loathed and detested sound: a ringing phone, closely followed by the morning alarm of anyone but my own.
37- Rolling Stones or Beetles? Beetles, definitely. I love stag beetles, but the cockchafer and water boatman can give it a run for it's money.
38- What's the farthest you have traveled? In one go, without any portals or Cusp interfaces? To San Clemente, California from Norwich, England by coach, 747, and taxi.
39- Do you have a special talent? Not really. Well, there's always the Host's highly bendable digits...
40- Where were you born? Norwich, Norfolk.
So. That's enough about us. Why don't you give it a go, too?
