Wednesday Weirdness #21


1.) As an adult, do you do anything for Halloween or is it just another day?
Halloween is not big here in Australia so for me it will be just another day.

2.) Do you ever dress up for Halloween? What will be your costume this year?
Same answer as above. I think it would be fun to dress up in spooky costumes though, and I love the way some people decorate their houses for Halloween (they are sometimes featured on our late night news bulletins, and of course there is always the internet). Maybe I will have to visit The States in October to experience 'trick or treat'.

3.) Have you started Christmas shopping yet? When do you usually begin?
No I haven't. Probably mid November I will start seriously shopping although I already have a pretty good idea what I will be getting for the kids. The problem with shopping too early is trying to find places to stash the presents, and then trying to remember where that good hiding spot was, months later.

4.) Do you look people in the eye when talking? Does it bother you when people don't make eye contact during conversation?
I generally try to make eye contact with people when I am talking to them. People who don't (or can't) make eye contact usually have something to hide.

5.) What excuse do you usually use when you want to take a day off work for no real reason?
If I need a day off and can't negotiate it then I would phone in sick. My 'illness' would either be a migraine or a stomach bug. I hardly ever do this as my employer is really flexible (within reason) and it usually isn't a problem to get some time off, even if it is only an hour or so.

6.) How often, on average, do you find yourself thinking about sex per day?
How many minutes are there in a day?? That's about how often I think about sex. Just lately it seems to be on my mind the whole time. Do you think I might have a little unspent sexual tension??

7.) What company makes your favorite brand of shoes? What makes them your favorite?
I don't have a favourite brand of shoe unless we are talking about trainers. Then I have a preference for either Nike or Reebok simply because of the comfort and support they give. Having said that, I am currently wearing a pair of Adidas Goodyear to the gym and I find them excellent to run in. So I guess I don't have a loyalty to any particular brand.

8.) Do you ever save alcohol bottles once they are empty?
I used to, many years ago. I wanted to collect different types of beer bottles, but in the end it takes up a lot of room and I couldn't see the point in keeping empty bottles anymore so I got rid of them. Now the bottle goes for recycling as soon as it is empty, not that I drink that much these days.

9.) Do you enjoy musicals?
Generally, no, however there are exceptions. Rocky Horror Picture Show is one such exception. Other exceptions elude me at the moment (if in fact there are any more exceptions) and I tend to avoid musicals like the plague.

LOL #3...I just did this. Bought something for my daughter and thought I hid it somewhere in the house. I could not find it for the life of me. By the time I was done every closet, drawer had been taken apart and cleaned and decluttered and I still could not find it. Turns out, it was still in the car!
