These questions are from  Eloriealton

  1. If you could be a fantasy or mythical creature, who or what would you be?

 I wouldn’t want to be a chimera like a minotaur or a mermaid. Too many Hercules types and bad guys wanting to do yucky things to them. I think I’d like to be an Elf of the LOTR type.

2. Are you a morning or an evening person?

 Morning. I get to work around 0430-0530. I get a lot done at work before the masses come in. And so I flake it in the evening around 2100

3. Is there a day you remember from childhood as being the most fun ever?

 My dad was into 8 ball. His club had Christmas parties for all their families. They’d hire a park in the Adelaide Hills. We swam in pool, played cricket, tennis, caught tadpoles and generally had a good time. We’d get soft drinks, ice creams and lollies – something I very rarely got as a kid and to top the day off Father Christmas would come and give us presents. It was brilliant, wonderful carefree days

 My dad job worked long hours and this was one of the few times when I remember my dad having a good time.

4. What kind of vehicle do you drive, not make or model particularly, but is it a sedan, or a truck, or a sports utility vehicle?

 Toyota Corolla – medium sedan. It’s big enough to put my ball bags in. That’s soccer balls. hehe

5. Do you think in words or pictures?

 Words. I can’t draw even in my mind. LOL

Nice questions, Elorie
A meme thingy from [profile] [profile] lil_blt_2

Here's what you do:

# Leave me a comment saying anything random, like your favorite lyric to your current favorite song. Or your favorite kind of sandwich. Something random. Whatever you like.

# I respond by asking you five personal questions so I can get to know you better.

# Update your LJ with the answers to the questions.

# Include this explanation and offer to ask someone else in the post.

# When others comment asking to be asked, you will ask them five questions.

Here goes:

  1. If a billionare offered you a million dollars/AUD no strings attached, what would you do with the money?

Here’s a boring answer but the truth. I’d go see a financial planner and secure my family’s financial future. I’d then do the normal things – new house, holiday etc. In my dreams, I’d retire and buy a place in Adelaide’s McLaren Vale and grow banksias and breed whippets.

  1. Do you believe in soul mates, and why?

Yes, I believe in soul mates. I know it sounds corny but when I met Mr Pook, I just knew he was my soul mate - my Imzadi. It’s beyond love – it’s a deep connection. I can’t really explain it. He completes me. He understands me. I can’t imagine a day without him. Sounds awfully like ST. LOL. Does this make sense?

  1. What's the most embarassing thing that you've done?

After I graduated from University, my friends and I got drunk in the Uni bar afterwards. We were still in our academic regalia [gowns, sashes, etc] when we proceeded to go down the main shopping mall in Adelaide singing and dancing at the top of voices [imagine like the end of WWII – singing dancing and kissing strange police officers and men etc]. Unfortunately, my very English and proper grandparents who had come to watch me graduate had still been shopping in town afterwards, saw me, contacted my mum and expressed their displeasure at my behaviour. Ooops. There have been so many it was hard to select the one. But my mum and my grandma never let me forget this one.

  1. If you could travel to any place in the world where would it be, and why?

Central and South America, places like the Yucatan area or Machu Picchu. To see the pyramids and other buildings. It is fascinating to me that supposedly primitive peoples by European standards could build such structures with only simple tools. They had science, calendars and cities as well. What happened to some of them is a mystery.  

  1. If you could meet any person in the world (dead or alive) who would it be and why?

Leonardo da Vinci. Brilliant artist, scientist, inventor, thinker and left-hander. What would he be able to do today if he had access to today’s technology? The mind boggles. Just to listen to the genius of the man. To ask him how he came up with his ideas - to get inside his mind. I’d be in awe.

Great questions ...

Who's next?
