TMI Tuesday #21

This week will be a momentous one for me. I will be posting my first ever HNT. This comes about as the result of a bet that I had with Ms SD of Sexy Duet's Sex Diary. I lost the bet and will be paying the price on Thursday. I will explain more in that post but I am just advising you now so you can check back or avoid all together, it's up to you.
In the meantime, here is this week's TMI. If you want to play along or check it out, click HERE.

1. How are your March Madness picks doing? or What is your favorite event?
Confession - I had to Google March Madness to find that it relates to basketball. That's how my picks are doing, whatever that means. If we are talking sport then I'm an Aussie Rules Football guy. At long last our season has gotten under way and even after just 2 weeks I have already run the gamut of emotions from elation to despair. Only 20 more weeks to go. For American sports I really like baseball and watch a fair bit of the NFL as well.

2. What is the best April Fool's joke - EVER?
The best April Fools joke that I was involved in took place many years ago. I used to work at a large metropolitan hospital and just before the end of the month, one of the employees from our department contracted chicken pox. A few people couldn't remember if they had had it as a child and worried that they may become sick as well. Myself and another staff member concocted an April Fool. On the morning of April 1 a memo arrived with some specimen jars and asked that all staff collect a urine sample before 10am and then deliver it at lunch time to the Micro Biology Dept for screening for chicken pox. We, of course, had arranged for the bogus memo to be delivered with the jars. Everyone dutifully collected their sample and stored it until lunchtime where upon they took it for testing. The kind folk at Micro Biology tried to keep a straight face as they disposed of the samples and told people that they had been had and should check the date. It ran so smoothly and I still don't think anyone knows who set up the gag, but boy did we laugh about it afterwards. Talk about taking the piss...

3. Valentine's Day - bogus holiday or romantic holiday?
I'm a bit of a romantic so I like to play along with Valentines Day. I agree that we shouldn't need a special day to spoil the one we love, but I just can't help myself. Guess I am a softie at heart.

4. If you made any New Year's Resolutions have you broken them yet? or What have you done lately to make yourself a better person?
I don't make New Year resolutions so I haven't broken any. In an attempt to make myself a better person I have been trying to worry less about things that I can't control. Things like other people's moods, bad drivers, poor performing football teams, that kind of thing. In other words, reducing my stress levels.

5. If you believe in 'regret', what is your biggest regret? If you don't believe in 'regret', what do you call 'errors in judgment' or 'missed opportunities' in your philosophy of life?
I don't really regret anything in life as all our decisions are part of the rich experience of life, and everything happens for a reason, even if that reason may not always be apparent to us. What may appear to be a missed opportunity at the time could really open a door in another direction that wouldn't otherwise have been available. Live in the moment and enjoy the experience.

Bonus (as in optional): Tell us about four things about yourself, one of which isn't true.
-I am over 6 foot tall.
-I have blond hair.
-I don't have time to update my blog as regularly as I would like.
-I often look at people and wonder what they would be like in bed.

Great answers! Lol @ your #2, haha. I'm betting the last 2 on your bonus answer are true. ;) Happy TMI!

Renee said...

You big V Day softie you! ;)

Hmmm, I'll go with #2 on your bonus being a lie. Am I right?

Vixen said...

Wow. Awesome answers. LOL about #1 (me too)


Bunny said...

I'm going with blond as being your lie - I suppose/hope we'll find out on Thursday!!

LOL @ the chicken pox joke. These people work in a hospital and think urine will tell if the have/had chicken pox? LOL

Happy TMI!

I Have Secrets said...

Happy TMIT!

Sexy Duet said...

Cant wait for Thursday to get my reward, makes it well worth only getting 7 out of 8 ;)

I dont know why but I never picture you as being blonde so I'm guessing you're not over 6 feet tall?


Stratocast said...

I don't care if you ARE blond and over 6 feet tall . . . stop looking at me and wondering what I'd be like in bed!!!

I Have Secrets said...

I added you to my links lsit on my blog. I put a note about it in my most recent post. :)

Adam Apple said...

You are right that the last 2 are true.

Spot on! I must remember to send you a V day message next year.

I'm glad I wasn't the only one.

You picked the correct answer. With the chicken pox joke, we worked in a hospital, but we were only the catering section so most of the staff couldn't even spell chicken pox let alone work out how to test for it!!

I Have Secrets-
Thanks for stopping by, and thanks for the link. I enjoy your blog as well.

Ms SD-
I hope it is worth the wait.
Blonde was the incorrect answer so maybe your picture of me is right. I stand 6'2", for the record.

I haven't wondered what you are like in bed, but I am hoping your blog will give us some idea...

"I often look at people and wonder what they would be like in bed."

Ooh...I like that. That could be a lot of fun, especially since looks are often deceiving!
