Welcome to Saturday: 9. What we’ve committed to our readers is that we will post 9 questions every Saturday. Sometimes the post will have a theme, and at other times the questions will be totally unrelated. Those weeks we do “random questions,” so-to-speak. We encourage you to visit other participants posts and leave a comment. Because we don’t have any rules, it is your choice. We hate rules. We love memes, however, and here is today’s meme!
Saturday 9: Pour Some Sugar on Me
1) Do you have a favorite “hair metal band?”
If it hadn’t been for Harriet over at Harriet and Friends, I would’ve had no idea what ‘hair metal’ was. But my answer is no. I’ve never been, nor shall I ever be, a Metal fan. Sorry peeps. 😦
2) Def Leppard got their start in South Yorkshire, England. Have you ever been to the UK?
Erm, hello! I’ve lived in England for the past @* years! I’ve been to Scotland, Wales and Southern Ireland. Oh hang on, we did travel over the border to Northern Ireland one day to see some caves, so… yes, I’ve been to the UK in its entirety.
3) Who would you rather chat with, one-on-one: Prince Philip, Prince Charles, Prince William or Prince Harry?
I adore the royal family. No, I’m not a fanatic, but I’m of an age where we were taught to love Queen and Country. Although this Country has a lot to answer for at the moment. However, I’m side-lining myself.
Out of the choice above I’d chose Prince Charles. Why? Because he’s an advocate for the planet, green farming and all that stuff, so I think that’s worth a listen.
4) Do you use real sugar, or a sugar substitute?
I use sweeteners in my tea, but real sugar on my cereal (whenever I eat it, that is) and for baking. Yes, I can bake. Well, that’s what I tell myself anyway. Sunken cupcakes anyone?
5) Valentine’s Day is big for candy sales. Did you indulge in any Valentine-themed, sugary treats this week?
Oh hell no! A conformist I’m not! That’s why dear ol’ hubbie loves me as much as he does. Although he did buy me a pack of three Cadbury’s Creme Eggs on Monday, but that doesn’t count as they were for medicinal purposes. Damn, I love how he still falls for the hormonal/chocolate requirements, or else I’ll tear his throat open scenario.
You won’t tell him, will you?
6) Do you regularly balance your checkbook?
Do they still exist? I haven’t had a cheque book in years! But if I did, the answer would be no, hubbie is far better at balancing than I am.
7) What was your last impulse purchase?
Bit hard to impulse shop when you don’t have any money. What I mean is, we have money, just that I don’t have any. And I’d like to keep it that way if you don’t mind. Impulse purchase. I ask you, hah.
8) When Sam was a girl, she had nightmares about snakes under her bed. When did you last have a bad dream?
I’ve already offered my services to a few fellow Saturday 9’ers. No, of course I’m not a registered therapist. But damn, it would be some great material for a book!
As to my own bad dream, there isn’t enough space to type it down. But I can tell you, it has been many years since I’ve had a bad dream, but then, my dreams are all bad anyway, so really it was pointless of me answering the way I did.
Last night. There, are you happy!
9) We’re ordering pizza. Do you want deep dish or thin crust?
Yum, deep dish (or pan). Pepperoni, mushrooms, onions and pineapple. What! There has to be some form of fruit in my ‘five-a-day’ allowance. I have to follow the government guidelines, they wouldn’t dare lie to me, now would they. 😉
