the unstoppable quiz meme goes on

1. What's your favorite cheese?

Brie, if we're talking about cheese to eat on crackers. Actually it's a tie with soft cheese & chive cream cheese.

2. How long do you hold onto odd socks before giving up on finding their mate?

I sort of avoid this situation by purchasing lots of pairs of black Explorer™ socks. So... I guess I hang on to them a fair while since mostly I can't tell the difference. Sadly, it's not a perfect system since some pairs do wear/fade differently; so every morning I have to sit on my bed squinting at a pile of socks to make sure I don't wear any that look noticeably mismatched.

3. Who was your favorite musical artist when you were 15?

Hmmm. Trying to figure out what I liked back in grade ten... Can't recall actually. Probably The Cure.

4. What shape are your fingernails in right now?

Trimmed, although yesterday they were long-ish and one got broken badly enough to be a real pain in the arse.

5. Two scoops: of what?

Ice cream! Rum & Raisin and coffee.

6. What's your earliest memory?

I think it's of the back yard at a big old sandstone house I lived in. I also remember a small black dog, a little terrier I think - she died when I was very young so I don't remember her very well.

7. When does your pet look funniest?

Well, sadly we lost the last of the family pets this year. But our two dogs used to look hilarious when they exploded off their rug and down the hall when it was time for dinner. Actually the look of anticipation when they realised you were about to call them was probably more amusing.

8. What do you collect?

Dragons, it seems. It wasn't really intentional; I just ended up with heaps of dragons.

9. What's better than sex?

More sex.

Seriously though; I don't really compare sex with other stuff... there's no comparison. In terms of "stuff that's really really great".... the euphoria of dancing to fantastic music; DJing to a packed dancefloor; performing in a band or on stage when everything gels and goes perfectly.

10. What things are you brand-loyal to?

Hmmmm. Sony sound gear has served me well. I'm also loyal to the Playstation console (we'll have no steenkin' Xbox around here).

Doc Marten boots. Bought one pair years ago; they're scruffy but still going. Must get around to buying a new pair.

11. Favorite Dr. Seuss book?

Ummm, I like the Cat in the Hat but I don't have a specific Seuss book that is a favourite. I don't recall Dr Seuss being that huge a part of my childhood; but that could just be my memory.

12. Best meal you've had lately?

Tonight's biryani (sp??) was pretty good.

13. Peanut Butter and ________?

Peanut butter? Get that shit away from me. Yuck.

14. Who's your favorite poet?

Hmm. William Blake maybe...

15. Where are you going on holiday this year?

Nowhere, no money. Will be going to Melbourne for a wedding next year though.

16. If you could change careers tomorrow with no strings attached, what would you be?

If I could suddenly transplant the talent and success; industrial music star or DJ. I'm pretty much ok with my current career as a web developer though; I just don't know where it's going. Since I can't say for sure what the web itself will be like in five years; it's slightly uncertain to say where a web developer's career will be :-/

17. Whaddya drive?

Holden Astra CD.

18. What's your poison?

Lots of things.

19. The color of the carpet or the kind of floor in the room you are in right now?

Blue. Uninspiring rental property carpet; albeit infinitely better than the truly awful brown rental property carpet I couldn't escape for a while.

20. What's on your walls?

Some photos by me; some photos and artwork by my girlfriend; artworks by our families. Nearly everything on our walls was created by us or our families. It's nice :)
