I Go To Eleven


+250 internets to whoever gets that reference in the title.

So, Fang at http://blog.fangtalks.com (Fancypants has his own domain) recently hit me with a "Blogger tag". I might not have participated but he asked me questions and God knows I love to answer those. So I will in fact be participating. You can skip most of this if you want, I won't mind.

So, first off the rules. Screw that I'm not going to follow them. Basically I just have to say 11 random things about me and then answer the questions Fang asked. Eleven things about me;

1. I have my first driving lesson today and I'm crapping my proverbial pants about it. I'll be sure to let you know how it goes, if I survive. Or don't end up in the hospital for too long.

2. Speaking of hospitals, I'm not fond of them, but thankfully I can only remember ending up in there twice. Once when I broke my wrist, and when I bruised by toe bone. They both bloody hurt.

3. I'm a wrestling fan. This may come as no shock to most of you but hey there might be some people who didn't know.

4. I'm trying to adopt a more normal sleeping pattern. No one knows why.

5. I'm a compulsive flirt. I flirt with a lot of people, often without realising.

6. I'm cold.

7. I have trouble completing a game. Seriously, my list of half completed games is longer than my list of actually completed games. At least, what I can remember of both of them.

8. I love manga and anime. Again, may come as no surprise.

9. I still feel shame over joining Twitter.

10. Part of me also wishes I'd never joined Facebook, but I met Jessie on there after two years, so I still have to be thankful for it.

11. I have several draft posts that for some reason or another, will probably never see the light of day.

Now for Fang's 11 questions. The only reason I did this in the first place. I'll change his questions to italics and my answers to bold.

1, How was your day? Anything exciting happened?
I'll answer this for the day I wrote it. It was okay, not much exciting ever happens to me. Today I took a cardigan off for a baby and didn't break it's arm. That's about it.
2. Ever done anything that falls waaay outside of the social norms of your gender/age group? ie watched My Little Pony and enjoyed it or something?
I watched and enjoyed My Little Pony and still do. Fluttershy is best poni. But outside your example...When I was younger I did enjoy several shows that were aimed more at girls, it's not just a recent thing. Though there were some shows I was never going to like, such as Bratz. I never got the point of those skanks. I do exhibit some childish behaviour.
3.If you were to classify yourself into a certain social group/style (ie gothic, emo, stoner, etc) which one would you place yourself in?
Goth. It's what everyone else thinks I am. I never did fit in even with those guys though. Plus I like Savage Garden and Bryan Adams. What self respecting goth would admit that?
4. Favourite Sesame Street character?
Cookie Monster. That dude was a drug addict and nobody cared.
5. Seek out a popular YouTube video, check the comments. What are your thoughts on those people?
Any video, ever, makes me lose faith in humanity. Especially reading some of the comments on MLP videos. I can gain some faith in myself by telling myself I'm not them.
6.Do you have any neurotic/OCD tendencies?
I like things to be organised. Though I actually hate organising. I just like everything having a place.
7. What's the meaning of life?
There are a couple. I usually say death though.
8. Do you collect something?
Not really. Too poor. Or to shameful. Unless you count my hoards of pictures.
9. Ultimate fantasy?
Depends. One thing I would love to do is have a huge house and have a buttload of animals living there. I would have a lot of land and basically turn my home into a wildlife preserve. If you mean my ultimate sexual fantasy. Having sex? Let's get that done and then worry about the freaky disturbing shit I do in the bedroom.
10. Weirdest dream?
Most of my dreams are weird but one of the more weird ones is one I had years back. I was in the school with some friends and it was basically like Lord Of The Rings. I think we had to find our way to a certain room but we were blocked all the time. I wish I could remember more of it. I've also had a dream where I'm in a girls house and I have to hide from her parents and I'm hiding out in room after room. Doesn't sound very weird but it was at the time.
11.Have you enjoyed this "11 Questions" thing?
Not enough to pass it on.

That's right I'm going to be a bastard and not tag anyone else. When I was a kid I never ran fast enough to tag other people when I played tag, and things are no different here. It's why I didn't post the rules earlier, I had no intention of following them. I was supposed to submit 11 questions of my own and tag 11 people to answer them. Even if I was going to do it I couldn't think of 11 people anyway. I'll tell you what I'll do, I'll think up some questions and if you want to answer them, then feel free to. This is specifically against the rules actually. HA! ROW ROW FIGHT DA POWER! It is actually in the rules that you can't just tell people to take the tag if they want. Anyway, here's 11 questions. Feel free to take a post to answer them.

1. How many relationships have you been in?

2. How many close friends would you say you have?

3. How many friends in general would you say you have?

4. If you were going to have a kid, would you wish for a boy or a girl?

5. Would you ever eat roadkill? I'm told some roadkill recipes are quite delicious.

6. Cats or dogs?

7. If you could stop George Lucas or Steven Spielberg from making movies, which would you pick? You can only pick one.

8. Is sanity overrated?

9. Do you have a favourite breed of cat or dog?

10. How many Facebook friends do you have?

11. Did you find my lack of random inane questions disturbing? (I sure did)

Go nuts!

Oh and because I can kind of have an excuse to mention it, Hazel recently gave me a shiny silver version of the "versatile blogger" award.

I didn't want to dedicate an entire post to it, seeing as I've already won it, but I can slip it in here.

And I recently broke the 300 follower point, I may have more of a celebration some other time.

47 comments:

  1. Oh, can I do it? Can I do the questions???
    But, seeing as I won' be awarded nothing, half of the fun is gone. Dammit.
    And, um, congrats again. Really *feels jealous*.

    1. lol this tagging thing isn't an award. So you can do it all you want just for fun. I wouldn't feel jealous over this award, feel jealous because I got a unique one such as the angel award over there >

  2. I wonder if breaking the rules by putting this long thing in your comments is in bad taste. Well, you can delete it if you want me to make a post with it.


    1. How many relationships have you been in? I'm gonna say 12, but if you count other peoples definition of ltr, then 0.

    2. How many close friends would you say you have?

    Five?

    3. How many friends in general would you say you have?

    I don't subscribe to friends in general, you're either an aquaintance or a best bud. No room for luke warm here.

    4. If you were going to have a kid, would you wish for a boy or a girl?

    I'd actually wish for a miniature tiger that I could domesticate and use as a guard pet to sick on mailmen and unruly children.

    5. Would you ever eat roadkill? I'm told some roadkill recipes are quite delicious.

    Depends on how young the calf I hit was, seeing as it would be free veal.

    6. Cats or dogs?

    Mee-Frickin'-Ow!

    7. If you could stop George Lucas or Steven Spielberg from making movies, which would you pick? You can only pick one.

    I would keep Lucas' hands so tied, he'd never be able to type the words "Star Wars" again.

    8. Is sanity overrated?

    Are we going by the Neilson scale or how many disorders I've racked up in the MSDSM?

    9. Do you have a favourite breed of cat or dog?

    Cat- Minature Tiger
    Dog- Whippit/Dashound mix
    10. How many Facebook friends do you have?

    23?

    11. Did you find my lack of random inane questions disturbing? (I sure did)

    Not really, it was kind of fun. Thanks!

    1. Well I didn't stick to the rules so I wasn't expecting anyone else to either. That you did it is enough :)

  3. obviously Spinal Tap my friend...

    "Well, it's one louder, isn't it? It's not ten."

    1. You sir are a gentleman and a scholar.

  4. SPINAL TAP!!! <3 "Why not just make ten the top, and make ten louder?" "This one goes to eleven."

    ReplyDelete
  5. posting personal information about myself on the internet
    *sequence start*

    1. define relationship. Friendships or do you mean " how many girl/boyfriends did you have?" because in case #1 i would say a few dozen because i somehow choose to befriend with people that move away 1 or 2 years later and in case #2 ... 2.

    2. close friends are people i can tell everything about me, no matter how complex, disturbing, wierd, silly, personal, emotional or stupid it is.... 3 close friends.

    3. thats like asking "how many people do you know" so i can only answer that in a very vague state: 10-15 depending on a exact definition

    4. skipping that because i hate kids

    5. Do i have to know that it is roadkill in the first place and how much cheese is on it?

    6. Dogs! Cats are such b*tches and you cant really play with them

    7. cant decide, fuck the rules etc.

    8. I would love to be insane, everything wouldnt matter to me and i would just live for the pure pupourse of joy. Yeah, it is overrated when you see it from an egoistic perspective way.

    9. beagle. When those big eyes look you in the face and say "could these eyes made the big pile of sh*t in your shoes. Im telling you, it was the neighbours cat" you cant be mad at them.

    23 = 42 (think about it)

    11. Already at the end? Where's my little bag with a little chocolate bar and a plastic figure that breaks in 5 million pieces when you drop it? Not to mention these little cards you get wher wierd sounding names are written on and a telefon number that i always write on public toillete walls.


    Funny way to waste some time :D
    Are the 250 internets a real price to win or is this just like the cake in portal 1?

    Also your "stop ACTA" banner/marker/link/I-have-no-clue-how-you-name-that is a little small, dont you think? ;D

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I meant more how many girlfriends/boyfriends yeah. Thanks for taking part ^^ The ACTA banner is just the normal size it's supposed to be. You noticed it at least :P

      Delete
  6. I hope to God no one tags me. I think I would have a nervous breakdown trying to come up with 11 things and answering all those questions.

    ReplyDelete
  7. spinal tap! i hope no one beat me to it. i love that band and movie.

    1. lol sadly you weren't the first to get it. But they are amazing.

  8. Very cool and interesting answers Mark. Always like to learn more about you. And I like that you didn't follow the rules. I don't either!!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Well I probably wouldn't be able to pick just that many anyway.

      Delete
  9. I can answer the ones about close friends. It would be 3; they are people I've known since elementary school

    ReplyDelete
  10. Yes I'm totally a fancypants for having a custom domain. And you're obviously jealous of me for it.

    Also, cool it on the Twitter shame. At least now I already know you didn't crash your car. ;D

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Well it wasn't my car so it doesn't matter if I crashed it ^^ I am also slightly jealous of your domain.

      Delete
  11. I've never gotten so many internets before. Aww yeahhh.

    ReplyDelete
  12. 250 internets. It's the internets sweepstakes.

    I totally concur with your answer about youtube. Every comment discussion on there turns into a really stupid argument about who was best out of the US or the UK in WW2.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Watch MLP videos, there's no WW2 debate, but it is so much worse.

      Delete
  13. it's just spinal tap right? or am I missing something?

    ReplyDelete
  14. nice answers - I'm a compulsive non-game finisher as well. As soon as I see where the story is going and what needs to be done I lose all interest...there's probably some deep meaningful reason but meh

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I'd like to think there's some deep reason too.

      Delete
  15. Well, that was definitely Spinal Tap, son.

    I'm sorry(?) but MLP doesn't count for that anymore. Too many 'bronies' out there for you to be able to say you're outside social norms now.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. That was Spinal Tap. It's still so far outside the norm I'm not about to tell anyone I know besides Jessie.

      Delete
  16. Hmmm... I was going to claim the prize, but too many people beat me to it.
    I have been crap at blogging since I got back from the big chill on the beach, and even worse at reading. But I'm here now so saying hello and now I'm gonna catch up...backwards :)

    Hope the lesson went well.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. lol I think you can stop reading me. Just check every monday and you'll get an idea and then you can choose to read more if it interests you. The lesson went fine too ^^

    1. I'm such a rebel I don't even follow my own rules.

  18. Was that a Spinal Tap reference? Haha, I bought some knobs for my guitar once that went all the way to eleven, but it was just for show they weren't any louder.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Of course they were louder, they went to 11.

      Delete
  19. First, where can I collect my 250 internets for getting the Spinal Tap reference?

    Also, I enjoyed your answers to the eleven questions.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. You can collect them at your nearest internet office.

  20. great questions, great answers. Dont ask me to do it though. I am not good at following rules either

    1. I don't even follow my own rules.

  21. Oh GAH, nuh-uh, nope~! I opened up That Bastard On... with one of these things, I ain't gonna do another one.


    Seriously, SUCH a timesink, especially when everyone in your little section of the internuggets are doin' 'em and you get tagged, like, ten times. It's happened to me back in the day, and I ain't gonna do that again.

    Still, thanks for this little glimpse into your personal life, m'man!

    1. I got a fair few awards back in the day but I don't think I got more than one at the same time.

Don't forget to subscribe to comments so you know if I say something back. If you want that is.
