Thank you to John at Writing the body blog who manages to keep me blogging by asking questions lol….. and wishing the sun will shine on me, or something. Well, it has been, and I’m the colour of a lobster. Camping, I’ve been camping on the weekend.
1. I take the first of these from Ajaytao2010 – Do you believe in an afterlife (my answer was no by the way)
Yes. And no. And yes. And no. Depends what day you ask me. Today, yes.
2. Describe the most beautiful food you have ever eaten
Well I had these really nice garlic prawns on holiday. And I don’t even like garlic. I don’t know why I liked them, but they were delicious. I’m sure that’s not my answer… but I can’t think right now. I still don’t think you can beat a chicken dinner with soggy stuffing. Perhaps that.
3. What is the favourite thing you like to cook?
Chicken thighs with peppers, tiny carrots, red onions, lots of oil, cheese and gravy, potatoes with a lemon squeezed all over.
4. Have you ever been so attracted to someone that even if he or she said something cruel to you you did not mind it?
Oh yes. That often makes me more attracted to them. Oh God yes, so very much yes.
5. Have you ever been stuck in a situation you feel you cannot escape – if so describe it.
With my ex, arguing, I have felt stuck, and trapped in a house, with nowhere to go. Also, in a van, in the middle of nowhere. Though I eventually insisted on getting out and walking. Now, I feel stuck in a situation of… wanting to make friends with someone, who I can’t make friends with. Also, stuck, in a job. I enjoy it, as jobs go, very much…. And yet it is, wherever I am working, me being obliged to be there certain times. To give up my life, my time. Though hopefully, I won’t feel ‘trapped, trapped’. No I mean, I will, inevitably. But hopefully if I want to change what I’m doing I will be able to, again. If it comes to it. I just need balance. I also feel stuck in a situation of being financially drained, constantly. And if that’s not enough, I have had the experience of being trapped in a depressed mindset, being thoroughly miserable and unable to see a way out. That is the worst situation I’ve been trapped in, the overwhelming sadness and despair of my own mind. Just horrid. Then of course, trapped in my own home, in my failing body, stuck in pain, fighting, unable to escape, when my illness flares up. Insomnia. Also like being trapped, unable to sleep. Loneliness. Have been unable to escape my loneliness at times. Sometimes I feel trapped, stuck in a female body. I have no desire to be male, but I feel trapped…. Unable to have unprotected sex without risk of pregnancy, I feel like a potential vehicle for disease. I feel stuck in a homosexual lifestyle whilst having heterosexual urges. I just feel empty, without focus. I feel trapped, unable to do art, painting, blogging. Unable to express myself. I feel stifled. Oh God. Lol. This answer is hilarious. Shall I go on? I feel stuck all the time, everything I do, every choice I make leads to me being stuck.
6. Write out a stanza of a song that you think both really well done, sung, and reads well…
I can only say this one because, when I fill up with petrol, if I use pump number 9, I always sing this song in my head. It’s Brand New…
“Number nine with my head on the bar
And it’s sad, but true
Out of cash and I.O.U’s
Desperate desires and unadmirable plans
My tongue will taste of gin and malicious intent
Bring you back to the bar
Get you out of the cold
A sober, straight face gets you out of your clothes
And they’re scared that we know
All the crimes they’ll commit
Who they’ll kiss before they get home.”
7. Has anyone ever slapped your face? Have you ever slapped anyone’s face? Describe if so,….
My sister has slapped my face. Playfighting.
I have slapped my girlfriend at the time’s face, once. Not playfighting. For real. Anyway I don’t like to think about that, hopefully will never do anything like that again.
8. Who is the movie star you find most attractive at present?
I am kind of crushing on this guy at the moment from The Fall.
9. Why do people think it is ok to vilify harmless public figures….like Rebecca Black, Paris Hilton, David Beckham, Chrissy Crocker etc?
I really don’t know. Jealousy, partly, I’m sure. They are never likely to come across them face to face. They don’t seem like real people with feelings. People often want someone to vilify. We all do… vilify someone. For instance, I vilify most of the conservative party.
10. Why, o why do you put up with me?
Well, I don’t. I ENJOY conversing with you. And whatnot. And you ask me questions, which you know I love. Especially when brain-dead. It’s a post-prompt right there. Oh and you are very interesting, that too. You make me think about things, always a good thing. Always.
