A tagging we will go

5 Qs 4 U

It is perverse, I'm enjoying this too much, but want to get on with blogging. So I have made a special link to this game. Instructions are below, and if you are brave enough to take part I'll put a link to your answers at the end of this post. If you are not sure, go read some of the other answers!

As long as there is a link to this from the top of the page, then you know I am still up to asking questions! I'm not fed up or out of questions yet. Jeez - I'm so nosey :-)

Scott-o-rama got this from Larry who got it from Large Tony...

In this little diversion the "tagger" asks five questions of the "taggee," and then the "taggee" ends the post with the instructions for how the game works so that it propagates like any good meme is supposed to.

Scott has asked me:
  1. What's the best thing about living in the UK?
    Beautiful country with history; tiny country lanes; old stone houses with thatched roofs; rolling green patchwork fields; tea; and we speak English.
  2. What's the worst?
    Imperialist, snotty nosed and racist attitude inbred in some of the population.
  3. What do you think the biggest difference between the British and Americans is?
    Contentious question! Pride. Americans have great pride in their country and in all things. The best part is the pride they have in their work - at least as far as the service staff are concerned. Pride is a positive thing that goes to extremes and can be very negative. The British lack a general sense of country pride - we know we have rampaged our imperialist rule across the world wiping out cultures that I reckon we have rather withdrawn ourselves into a bunch of mamby pamby, apologetic, not quite knowing where we stand, race of people. We take no pride in our service industries and little pride in our achievements.
  4. Where would you most like to live if you could live anywhere?
    If time became stretchy I'd live in lots of different places. I'd learn the language and live the lifestyle. Places include: Germany; Egypt; and the US. But ultimately, as long as it is with Mr Doris it could be anywhere!
  5. Tony Blair- hot or not?
    He rocked the night he came to power. Now, our socialist left-wing party is so right-wing it is scary. So 'not'. (But there is no viable alternative at the mo.)

In accordance with the rules of the meme, I need to post these instructions:

  1. If you want to participate, leave a comment below saying “Interview me.” (”Tickle me” or “Caress me” are not acceptable substitutes.) You must leave your blog address so I can think of good questions for you!
  2. I will respond by asking you five questions - each person’s will be different. I’ll post the questions in the comments section of this post.
  3. You will update your blog with the answers to the questions.
  4. You will include this explanation and an offer to interview others in the same post.
  5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions.

Don't forget, you will need to check back for your questions and it might help if you let me know when you have answered them - though I will come and check anyway :-)

I am enjoying setting the questions so be brave and submit yourself to my scrutiny..... these brave people have:

    Good answers to the questions. However I think you are too hard on the British. you all deserve more credit for all the bad you have also done much good. Those who haven't failed also usually haven't succeeded.

    I don't suppose Mr Doris has a single brother? He sounds wonderful from reading your posts today. Hope the tooth gives you some peace. I always had lovely dentists, but when I lived in Derby I had one who was awful. He removed one of my teeth, and told me I needed a huge amount of work done. Fortunately I moved! When I got back down here I signed up with my Mum's dentist who is lovely, and still haven't had any work done in three years! I see the hygienist every three months though, as a very dry mouth from the drugs is bad for gums.

    Ella M. -

    1. How old were you when you had your first kiss?

    3. What is something nice a stranger has said to you?

    4. What pop song or artist are you ashamed to say you have liked?

    5. What are the strangest search terms used to find your blog?

    doris said...
    Tim - Yes, I know I'm a bit hard but also, you ask any British person and they would be quite clear where my preferences lay! Absurd British deprecation :-)

    Annie - 'Fraid Mr Doris's brother has been married longer than him, and his wife is as dotty about him as I am about Mr Doris! Must be something in the family jeans (oops genes!).

    Hey Scott! I really enjoyed playing and finding questions for others so would welcome doing more - even bloggers I haven't heard from before :-) That'd be a challenge.

    I think Tony Blair is kinda cute. A little too thin but he's better than what we've got, that's for sure.
    A question though, I think Camilla Parker Bowles (sp) is wrongly bashed & I don't know if it's just the American media that does it. I don't find her quite as bad as they say. Sure, she's no Princess Diana, but she's an older woman & just different.
    But aren't they all forgetting who she married? You could pin that guy up on a clothesline by his ears!! Does the British media ever bash Prince Charles too or is that just a big no-no?
    And I feel the same about Tarzan as you do about Mr.Doris, wherever on this planet, as long as it's with him. :)

    1. What is your wife's best physical feature?

    2. You are happily retiring and handing over to a successor. What one piece of advice would you give?

    3. Do you sometimes fantasise about certain employees?

    4. What fruit do you love the most and which do you dislike?

    5. If money was no object, where would you go on holiday, who with and for how long?

    Enjoy! :-)

    doris said...
    You're back Jane! Can I question you?

    And excuse me while I choke a little.... I don't think cuteness qualifies as a reason to be in power, but I suppose it certainly helps!

    As for C P-B I think she has history against her. I think she is applauded for how she looks these days, but I don't think there is much getting away from the past. But I don't think she has it any worse than Charles.

    1. I'd rate that pic of you on the right of your page as 9 out of 10. How would you rate your cuteness now?

    2. One of the old musicals has come on TV. You are busy doing something else but can hear the music - which musical or what number are you likely to start toe-tapping to?

    3. Would you consider changing your tag line from an 'ex-smoker' to a 'non-smoker'? {I think there is supposed to be a psychological difference with one keeping a connection to smoking and the other stating this is you.}

    4. What would it take for you and your sister to be on talking terms and if this is too long/personal to answer then just answer if it would be possible for you and your sister to be on talking terms?

    5. During pillow talk what one feature of your boyfriend's face is most endearing?

    3. Being a Christian I am sure that you have faith that the Bible is the word of God. However, the Bible has been translated and re-printed many times. How can you trust that the Bible is still the word of God? (If this question is too heavy, too personal, or too difficult etc then I'll put a substitute question at the end - I don't mean to be offensive, and having read a lot of your posts I really feel like reaching out to you in kindness.)

    4. What is one of the romantic moments you and your husband have shared?

    5. Do you wear a uniform and what is it?

    bentley92 -

    LOL - this has to be the hardest and most challenging yet! You have provided me with a blog about a knee-op and a blog about a town! However, I like rising to a challenge ;-)

    1. You were a young fit man when you sustained your knee injury. I know lots of people who have also sustained sports injuries so my question is: Do you now think sport is bad for your health?

    2. What is your favourite house paint color?

    3. Which is longer... your big toe or your second toe?

    4. Where is your favorite vacation place?

    5. A while back you helped out some people who had run out of petrol. They seemed in a hurry to get away with little thanks. If you had the situation over again, what would you do different? And is there any chance they were nicking the car and you had assisted them?

    Don't forget to let me know when the asnwers are done - I look forward to reading them!

    Thanks Jaxia - I'll be along shortly to comment as I can't keep my mouth shut :-)

    Keris -

    Nice to meet you! You are one of those lovely people who thoughtfully provide a good bio and write in a way that lets people in .... so I am going to have to be suitably superficial and vacuous ;-)

    1. Which episode of the recent series of Dr Who would you sit down and watch again without hesitation?

    2. Without saying what your child's name is (unless this is public knowledge) what were the possible names you had considered?

    3. Share one sentence from one of your novels (includes part novels, half-started or half finished novels etc!).

    4. Name three places in this world that you want to visit?

    5. Which celebrity could you happily marry if you didn't have the life you have?

    Let me know when you are done! Thanks :-)

    I have an idea...

    I want to be interviewed, but I want to put my replies in my next podcast.

    I think mine might be a bit difficult, though, since I don't really tell much about my real life on my site, but I think you're up to the challenge.

    g'head... try me.

    Andy -

    Ha-ha, I sure am up for the challenge! I'm not quite sure at this stage what you are going to do at your end regarding a podcast - can I view it online? I'd like to see the answers.

    Your questions:

    1. What is printed on your current favourite T-shirt?

    2. What is the highest score you have got on the music game on your iPod? (I got 30 out of 100 on my daughter's iPod and considering we are a good generation apart I was impressed!)

    3. Where were you the last time you snogged someone, or thought about snogging someone?

    4. How true is the story of how iPod Nirvana was born?

    5. If you could invent anything, what would it be?

    That's it - let me know :-)

    PoetX -

    1. Be careful! Blogging is addictive. What else have you been addicted to?

    2. What do you like to consume for your morning break at work?

    3. What is one of your favourite sayings or mantras?

    4. Stop doing anything else you are doing. Hug yourself warmly, whilst smiling. What does that nice fuzzy feeling put you in mind of?

    5. Which of your comics has the most sentimental connections for you and why?

    Have fun and let me know when you are done :-)

    Gimikera I will be delighted to interview you but it will be in a day or so. I'll pop a note on your blog when the questions are ready for you :-)

    1. Did you know that from the pic on your blog you look a little like a US celebrity psychologist on UK TV? Her name is Jenni Trent Hughes. Do you see a resemblance?

    2. I am wildly jealous that you are in a place on this world where you could see the Perseid meteor shower outside your door. When is the next one due for you and do you think you would make the effort to drive out of town and away from the light pollution if you could?

    3. You use Gimikera like a noun. What does it mean?

    4. Describe something beautiful where you live?

    5. What is one childhood memory that you cherish?

    Let me know when you have done as I like to read the answers :-)

    PS. About question #1 - the number of times I have come across your blog through Blog Explosion and wanted to say that to you...!

    Gimikera Having just gone to your blog to post a message tells me why I have never posted a comment. Sorry, I don't want to sign up for yet another sign-up service. Not unless it is being used by a lot of people... but I may relent.

    I hope you get back to me :-)

    No apologies from me for the unashamedly girly questions :-)

    1. Pierced earings or clip-ons?

    2. What is one of the best make-up tips you know that you can share with me?

    3. Describe one of your favourite outfits complete with accessories?

    4. Stockings and suspenders or hold-ups?

    5. How do you keep your finger nails and how do you dress them up?

    Monday, August 15, 2005 5:56:00 PM
    doris said...

    Phew! What a life you must lead, so I want to keep reasonably upbeat with my questions :-)

    1. What are three of your favourite treats? Just for you and assuming that everything else has been taken care of.

    2. In your mind, see if you can float above your present life and somewhere else. Look into the distance and describe what you can see?

    3. You have had to cope with a lot of difficult situations and had to find some excellent management skills. There must have been times that you have coped really well and can turn around and say that you know that you did well. Tell us one of your good parenting tips?

    4. Do you have a favourite saying that inspires you?

    5. What are two of your favorite TV programmes?

    I hope those questions are OK for you? Let me know and I look forward to reading your answers.

    A chocolate covered cherry blizzard.

    An Ice cold beer

    Chips and dip

    2. In your mind, see if you can float above your present life and somewhere else. Look into the distance and describe what you can see?

    Peace amongst all people no matter race, religion or creed.

    3. You have had to cope with a lot of difficult situations and had to find some excellent management skills. There must have been times that you have coped really well and can turn around and say that you know that you did well. Tell us one of your good parenting tips?

    Never contradict anything that you feel is wrong in your gut. If you think there is a problem persevere until evrything has been resolved to your satisfaction.

    4. Do you have a favourite saying that inspires you?

    Not really, but there are some lyrics to a TSO song that I adore....Dream child, stars have been rumored to see dreams, within newborn eyes, and in their are I believe they do, keep safe until your arise.

    5. What are two of your favorite TV programmes?

    Days of our Lives
    What not to Wear

    3. Since you have given 29 ideas for an episode of '24' what did you actually think of the series?

    4. What is your usual mode of transport and what is your favourite?

    5. Which, do you think, is the best spoof you have written?

    OK - over to you! I look forward to reading your answers on your blog together with 'rules' so that others can play with you ;-)
