Meme of many questions, Part Two

Courtesy of Sunday Stealing:

23. Do you rent movies often?
Netflix has loved me for years.

24. Is there anything sparkly in the room you're in?
No. I'm not attracted to sparkly things so you can keep the diamonds. Now chocolate is a different matter.

25. How many countries have you visited?
5 but who's counting?

26. Have you made a prank phone call?
No. I have better things to do.

27. Ever been on a train?

No, but I have been in a train.  I'm afraid I wouldn't see the tunnel coming if I were on the train or I might have to wrestle some outlaw and risk dangling precariously over the edge.

28. Brown or white eggs?
I prefer blue robin eggs, but it takes so darn many to make a omelet.

29. Do you have a cell-phone?
No, and I don't have Internet access, TV, radio, car, refrigerator, stove, toilet, or any other modern device that would make my life easy. Life should be full of isolation and hardship.

30. Do you use Chap Stick?
My chaps stick without any assistance.

31. Do you own a gun?
Go ahead, make my day and you'll find out.

32. Can you use chop sticks?
Not very well, but I can play chop sticks on the piano

33. Who are you going to be with tonight?
A fat cat
34. Are you too forgiving?
Nope, and I never forget either.

35. Ever been in love?
Many, many, times, but I'll never fall in love again.

36. What is your best friend(s) doing tomorrow (or the next soonest week day)?
sipping a cold beer after a long hot day of work

37. Ever have cream puffs?
Not recently, but yes, and I make them myself.

38. Last time you cried?
When I spilled the milk this morning.

39. What was the last question you asked?

40. Favorite time of the year?

41. Do you have any tattoos?
My body is not an art gallery.

42. Are you sarcastic?
Hardly never.

43. Have you ever seen The Butterfly Effect?
Yes, and don't ask me to name all the other movies I've seen because I don't want to sit here all day.

44. Ever walked into a wall?
I'm an amblyope, so I not only walk into walls, I also bounce off them.

Great answers! Funny!

You have never been on a train? Do it! (But not the train to the Windy city - that really doesn't qualify.)

Thanks for the link to amblyope. Always nice to learn those useless medical terms.

GLS: I've been in trains in Europe and the US, but never outside on the train. That may be my next great adventure - cross-country ON a train.

Being an amblyope, I don't waste any money on 3-D movies; it makes me see double. I wore an eye patch when I was a child, but it did little more than cause me to speak like a pirate.

Weird question about trains? Must be a North American thing (I take the point that in them is better on balance).

You speak like a pirate?

Say 'Arrrrrr! Jim Lad!'

Or even...

'Avast me hearties!'

white: Arrrrr! Jim Lad! Avast me hearties!

white rabbit said...

Perfect!!!! :D

(I know that's exactly how you'd respond!)

Catch Her in the Wry said...

white: You know I don't always do what I am told to do, but since you said "prettyplease", how could I resist?

white rabbit said...

*makes a note of this*

"My chaps stick without any assistance." I'm at work goofing off and laughed out loud.
I'm glad you put a link for ambylope. I thought it was even-toed ungulate species found in many places of the world.

bad: The school administrators I know goof off alot in July too. Glad I could give you a Ha-Ha moment.

Alice said...

You're good! How'd you get so quick witted?

Btw, loved the chocolate video.

alice: I have no idea. No one ever thought I was funny until you blog readers came along. Perhaps it's because I am very quiet in person.

I'm very happy to hear that you're doing so well now. Have a wonderful trip across the ocean!
