"Dawn's in trouble. Must be Thursday."

Yeah yeah, the original line is 'Tuesday', but you get the idea. Thursday Thunks!

1. Recently Berleen and I discovered the allure of the Twilight series. Have you ever been sucked in to the latest "thing"? (Like Harry Potter, the movie Titanic, social networking, etc. etc. etc.)

Often, yes. For instance, Harry Potter - definitely yes (although I was in the target age range when it first came out). Facebook - also massively yes, oh the hours I've wasted and will continue to waste. Lost - yes, until they found a statue of a foot with four toes on the island and I realised they were just going "hey, let's think of something mysterious that raises loads of questions and throw it in there, ridicule be damned." I neither know nor care what the hell happened after I stopped watching. Maybe they found evidence that they were in hell, or the past, or the future, or the nostril of a 100-foot space weasel. Who gives a fuck anymore.

Other times, emphatically not. Twilight being a case in point. Mind you, the hype was so huge that I was tempted, til I remembered I had testicles. Titanic I resisted seeing at the time, but saw it a couple years ago and my GOD I want those 3 hours back, even if I'm only gonna spend them on facebook.

2. What software do you use for your email?

Windows Mail. Huh, I don't really see what else I can do with this question. That's that then.

3. Are you comfortable being nude?

Not excessively. But then (cause or effect?), I really like clothes. Did I mention I had 100 t-shirts?

4. What is something you plan on doing this summer?

ROAD TRIP! Admittedly I cannot drive, but a few of my friends can. So what do I bring to the table, you ask. I respond: humour and a bunch of awesome mix CD's.

5. Do you have a favourite movie/book quote? If so, what is it?

Oh my god, what have you done. No, really. Do I have to pick one? How about, like, 57? That's a nice round number. You know, if you'd added TV to the options I'd literally be crying now. Fine, fine, I'll pick one, because I guess I do have one, even if it is 99.9% context. It's from Pulp Fiction, the moment when Bruce Willis is sitting in the car and Ving Rhames crosses the street in front of him, turns and sees him:


6. How many email addresses do you have?

Three. My official uni one, the hotmail one I use largely for MSN Messenger, and the hopefully untraceable one I use when signing up for websites/programs that are totally legal and don't involve piracy in any way.

7. Is the sky falling?

No, and such thinking will get you and your stupid bird friends eaten by an improbably named fox. However, Queens of the Stone Age said it is falling. So now I don't know what to think.

8. Have you been to the Grand Canyon?

Nope. I've barely even been to the US, just Miami for a couple weeks 7 years ago. I expected Will Smith to welcome me at the airport and invite me to a club where the heat was on. He didn't, but I bought some cool shoes.

9. When was the last time you mailed a hand written letter?

I honestly don't remember. I'm actually not sure I ever have, cos if I did it would have been when I was a kid, and who the hell do little kids send hand written letters to? Oh wait, of course. He must have received it as well, cos I totally got that Hot Wheels set.

Lost came out the same year of Desperate Housewives. They were both twisted so I loved them. And both in their second year bored me. It was a short quick love affair. Great job, man. Enjoy!

Tilli said...

'dereadi'. Neither a spell nor a Pokemon. That's EXACTLY when I stopped watching Lost, whenever I tell people about the four toed foot statue they look at me like I'm insane. I do love you =)

ya know, in Canada if a kid writes Santa @ The North Pole he responds, and writes a letter back. I love the Canadian postal Service.
You should do a gallery showing off your 100 T-Shirts.

Spyke said...

Kimber - thanks for the questions!

cricketsdrivel - it is literally the best moment in any film, ever.

tintintetay - thanks! Your name was very hard to type.

Bud - always vaguely meant to get into DH, never got around to it. These days not many hour-long shows can hold my attention.

Tilli - HA. And love you too =)

Amber - that is utterly, absolutely awesome. Canada's huge as well, you'd think if they can do that there they could manage in the UK. As for the t-shirts, there may well come a point in the next few months when I have literally nothing better to do...

LOVE Pulp Fiction... chock full of great quotes. Loved your answers! Check mine out, HERE!

Tanya said...

Your answers are hilarious, but I found myself actually laughing out loud at #8. Too funny!

I refuse to watch Lost...seriously, I just don't have the energy for that show!
