Fifty questions and this one takes up 2 percent of them? meh... burgundy

Yep, best money anyone ever spent on me. Thanks mum... I used to have teeth like Elton John or Madonna. Actuallly come to think of it, those guys are rich and talented. Thanks a lot mum!

5. Extrovert or introverted?
In front of a crowd or my classroom or online I'm an extrovert, but in real life I'm finding myself more introverted as it continues. Wait... is this question about bellybuttons?

I'd need a whole other list to reply to this. Let's just start with, 'catching a ball'.

12. Who's your best friend?
I had someone I called my best friend in High School, but they died. I don't like calling people best friends anymore. Wife is obligatory although true, I suppose. It's also true to say though, that there are others who know various aspects of myself better than she does. Hey, simple question... what can I say? I'm complex.

13. Do you lie about your age?
Just started doing that lately. I'm going to be 35 for a lonnnnng time.

I've never tasted anything so disgusting. Like licorice, coffee, beer and smoking, I just don't get the fascination.

Any island that has great reefs and ample sea life. I would like to see the pyramids, but if I die before then, I'm not fussed.

Central Australia... who wants to go further away from the coast?

20. Do you believe in life after death?
Nah, I think the clue is in the word 'death'.

I used to but got fed up with being ignored. You can only go so far with a one sided conversation before you realise you're talking to yourself. See the other blog.
