What can I say, it kept me entertained for a bit.

1. First thing you wash in the shower?
Hair

2. What color is your favorite hoodie
I have no hoodies, don't anticipate getting one, and have no opinion about likely colours.

3. Would you kiss the last person you kissed again?
Oooh, yes please.

4. Do you plan outfits?
Occasionally. I'm planning what I'll wear for Jack's funeral tomorrow.

5. How are you feeling RIGHT now?
Tired.

6. Whats the closest thing to you that's red?
The cardboard outer sleeve of a tube of Sainsbury's ibuprofen gel.

7. Tell me about the last dream you remember having.
I don't remember dreams as a general thing; In particular, I don't remember what the last one I remembered was about.

8. Did you meet anybody new today?
An unfamiliar postman, delivering something I'd ordered which required a signature.

Nothing in particular.

10. Do you floss?
I do. Not in a regular routine every day fashion, but I carry flossing devices round with me to use when something's stuck.

11. What comes to mind when I say cabbage?
Bubble and squeak. Which I haven't had in far too long.

12. Are you emotional?
Yes. But I tend to mask it well.

13. Have you ever counted to 1,000?
I have. More than once. But if I'm counting something, I tend to count up to a hundred ten times -- it's less far to go back if you lose your place.

I lick.

15. Do you like your hair?
I have no particular opinion of it.

I'd give him a pretzel.

Adverts between successive sections of "Argumental" on Dave. It'll turn itself over to BBC2 shortly and make me watch a documentary on autism.

One is easygoing, the other is AWOL.

20. Would you go sky diving?
Certainly not.

21. Do you like cottage cheese?
Certainly not.

Never.

Does diet Coke count as sparkling?
