Alphabet Meme Stealing

It’s Sunday Stealing. Or, you know, it’s Sunday. And I’m playing Sunday Stealing. Something like that.

In any case, today is about alphabets and that, as we’re playing the Massive Alphabet Meme. Part One. Shit, I can never keep up with these things.

Anyway. And away we go.

The Letter A 
Are you agnostic?  Possibly. I’d more likely describe myself as an agnostic theist, but I’m not sure.
What is your age?  Skip to My Lou, I’m 22.
What annoys you?  Our landlady, who earlier in the week thought it completely acceptable to start banging on her son’s door and yelling at him at 5 am. Her son, who’s staying in the room next to ours.

The Letter C

Are you a giver or taker? Both.

The Letter H
How are you?  Fine, I think. A bit tired. How are you?

The Letter I

Have you ever ice-skated?  Yes, and I am shockingly bad at it.

Do you wear jewellery?  No.
Have you heard a really hilarious joke? I’m sure I have at some point.

If you want more non-commital/sarky/random answers, check back on Tuesday when I do TMI Tuesday. Yep, it’s all fun and games here at LLB Mansion (until the landlady crows).

Stealing Wackadoo

Every once in a while, I like to get meme with it. And today is such a day. I’m playing Sunday Stealing, mainly as a means to cool down from the rather unusual* (FECKING HAWT) weather we’ve been having in Englandland.

So, how do and here go.

COMMENCE MEMEAGE

1.] What age is your youngest aunt?

I realize I’m about to sound like a big twat, but I have so many aunts that I don’t even know who the youngest is! Seriously, my mother has six siblings, all married. I don’t even know.
 
2.] Do you miss someone right now?

I miss my fierce and fabulous friend B. Every day.

3.] What can you see North West to you?

A bit of wall and some coats. It’s not exactly a view of Sidney Opera House, is it? (Nor the Hanging Gardens Of Babylon. Or hordes of wilderbeasts sweeping majestically across the plains.)

4.] Do you like bowling?

Eh… I’m a bit nonplussed about it. It’s a nice way to spend an afternoon, but… you know… so is masturbating furiously. Or sex.

5.] Can you pronounce Italian words?

I kid you not, I actually can.

6.] Do you prefer black or beige coloured jackets?

I’ve got a preference for coats, actually. But a nice beige faux-leather coat is good too.

7.] Do you own a hoodie?

I don’t even own pajamas.

8.] Do you like roasting marshmallows on a bonfire?

Never done it, so I can’t really say. I do like marshmallows, if that helps?

9.] Do you like cheesy puffs?

Wha… that thing that Cartman’s so fond of eating in South Park?

10.] What’s your name without vowels?

JLLN BD

11.] How many layers of clothing are you wearing?

Two, but that includes underthings.

12.] When was the last time you got a take away? What did you have?

Earlier in the week. I had a chicken shish and my other half chips and cheese.

13.] If you could climb any mountain or range which would you choose?

Absolutely none of them.

14.] Do you alphabetically arrange anything in your room? What?

Nothing. I used to chronologically arrange my DVDs though.

15.] Have you ever visited fat-pie [dot] [com]?

I don’t even know what that is. I’ve eaten pies though.

16.] Do you prefer sweet or sour fruits?

Sweet. I don’t like eating things that make my face contort.

17.] Do you like Flo Rida? Which song of his?

I really, really don’t like him. Or any of his songs* (*noises)

18.] How are your dancing skills?

I used to do ballet and jazz dance. I still occasionally bust a move. So, while I may have less skills than in my formative years, I still can dance.

19.] What is your favorite number?

7.

20.] Describe your best friend to me?

He’s basically the gay male Karen Walker. Which I love about him.

21.] What is your favorite alcoholic drink?

I don’t drink alcohol.

22.] Do you do any sports or have you done any sport professionally?

Nope.

23.] What is your ringtone?

A very jaunty medieval jig.

24.] Do you like chilli flavoured chips/crisps?

Some types, yes. Others just want to watch my mouth burn.

25.] Do you curl or straighten your hair?

Straighten.

26.] What’s the nicest smell of shampoo?

Lush’s Snow Fairy, whenever my other half uses it.

27.] What smell turns you on? How about turns you off?

I don’t easily get turned on by scent, but the scent of his body turns me on madly.

The scent that turns me off? Any tunnel that smells like piss.

28.] Who’s your favorite comedian?

Dara O’Briain, definitely.

29.] RnB or Reggae?

If presssed, I’d go for the former.

Suburban Meme

And since I’m always late for these things, have a bit of Sunday Stealing on a Monday. This week’s meme is the Suburban Meme, stolen by Another Suburban Mom. Hence the name. Yeah.

Want to be living in a nice flat together with Loverboy. And have a nice job and regular writing work.

3. Do you think the United States will elect a female President in your lifetime? Do you think this would be a good thing?

Literally no-one.

The Kraken.

Ehm… Can I not just get the outfit in my own size? Either way, I would try it on first.

12. Even the biggest slackers are anal-retentive about something? What are you anal-retentive about?

I think I’m anal-retentive about scheduling my day… If something doesn’t go according to plan, I tend to not cope.

13. Out of all the books you read as a child, which one had the biggest influence on how you are today?

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. It encouraged me to always believe in magic…

14. Which Golden Girl would you want to spend a night on the town with?

Without a doubt, Betty White. She’s AMAZING to the power of ten. I want to be like that at that age.

15. What is the one product you would never buy in its generic form even if the generic is half the price?

……. Stopped… believing?

Peas and carrots.

18. If someone holds out a carton of milk to you and asks you to sniff it to see if its spoiled, do you?

Hell no. I don’t even know what spoiled milk smells like….

Our computers, I think.

Sunday Stealing is a weird one this week. Weird in the sense that we’re only doing half a meme. I kid you not, it’s the back 15 questions of a 30 question meme. But since I’m a total meme whore, I will take whatever I get. So, I present to you the Back 15 Questions Meme. Play on, brotha.

Playing Sunday Stealing on a snowy and cold Monday, because of many many reasons. We are continuing the 40 Random Questions Thingy from last week. Let’s play, shall we? And then go and frolic about in the snow like little snow pixies.

I shave when needed.

I wear a lot of black and grey and baggy shit, because it makes me feel incredibly comfortable. I’m currently wearing the flannel shirt you saw me wearing in my Sinful Sunday pic yesterday and it’s amazing. Sometimes, I add a bit of colour though.

Something Somewhat Random Meme

We’re playing Sunday Stealing. Because I can. And they can too. Whoever they are.

Speaking of random.

Speaking of random.

1) What side of the heart do you draw first?

Left side. Although I’m completely right-handed. But then again, does that really matter?

2) Can you dive without plugging your nose?

I’m a Lady. I don’t dive. I glide.

Okay, that was quite possibly the cheesiest thing I’ve ever said.

I don’t really fancy being tied to anyone. You’d have to put up with this person for an entire day. There is such a thing as too much of one person, even if it’s some sort of celebrity.

Having said that…

Totally George Takei though.

6) What is a rumor someone has spread about you?

That I don’t bathe.

Seriously, this was an actual rumour spread about me. It didn’t get very far, but it had enormous consequences in the sense that I now constantly worry about smelling like a tramp.

Hmm…. Hesitant.

Four.

Mel C till the death.

Stimerol Wild Cherry.

More Who Are You Meme Madness

Sunday Stealing 2.0 continues, with the second part of the Who Are You? Meme.

This week, it’s about growing up. You know, that fun stuff you do all the time and that. Expect snark, as per usual.

Are you sitting comfortably?

Good.

Let’s begin.

~

15. How would you describe your childhood in general?

In general as a thing that happened that was not at all nice.

16. What is your earliest memory?

Toss up between being pushed face first in the sandbox and refusing to let go of the jungle gym because I was scared I would fall on my arse.

17. How much schooling have you had?

Enough to make me realize that I was wasting my life learning things I wasn’t going to use in my adult life. I mean, it’s not like I’m going to get cornered by a beggar who will only let me live if I explain the Pythagorean theorem to him in detail.

18. Did you enjoy school?

I enjoyed bits of it. I was given morsels of things that I wanted to know, and it sparked my hunger to strike out and learn on my own.

19. Stop and count, Since you were born until today; how many homes have you lived in?

Five.

20. While growing up, did you have any role models?

I don’t really know. I suppose I didn’t. I have plenty of them now, but I didn’t really know what I want (then again, does anyone?) when I was growing up, so I had no-one as an example. Right now, I look up to many people in many walks of life. Strong businesswomen, like Karren Brady and Hilary Devey. Writers from Danny Wallace to my friend Charlotte Stein. Gender pioneers like Kate Bornstein, sex educators like Barbara Carrellas. People who’s vision sparks something in my heart and soul and mind.

21. While growing up, how did you get along with the other members of your family?

I don’t think I did very well. I was awkward, with a severe case of word vomit. I got along famously with Nan Boyd and my Uncle, who lived with her. But I don’t know about the rest. I remember hating my niece when she came along, and now I admire her and love her to bits. We get along brilliantly, despite me being six years her senior.

22. As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?

I think I wanted to be a hairdresser, like my niece. She had her own business, which I think secretly sparked something in me. I still have the desire to own my own business, but the idea of me being a hairdresser went out the window a long time ago.

23. What were your favorite activities 3 years ago?

I shit you not, I have no clue.

24. As a child, what kinds of personality traits did you display?

Ehm… traits that people didn’t really understand. I was very wise beyond my years, because I picked up stuff from the world around me. I had no qualms about being an adult, but being a kid was very hard.

25. As a child, were you popular?

Hell to the no!

26. When and with whom was your first kiss?

My first kiss was very recent. It was in October last year, with a dear friend of mine, who went on to tell me some home truths about my life.

27. Describe any influences in your past that led you to do the things you do today.

Skipping this question and moving swiftly on, because this is quite personal to me. If you ever get the chance to ask me in person, I might answer though.

28. What’s next?

Life, lived to the fullest. Love, with all my heart. Writing until my fingers bleed and onwards from that.

And possibly dinner.

Who Are You, Meme?

Haven’t done Sunday Stealing in a long while… So, let’s right that wrong, shall we?

This week, SS is… well, there’s been a change! We’ve got a new person in charge! But you don’t care about that! You just want me to bring on the snark! And so I shall!

~

1. What is your biggest pet peeve?

My biggest pet peeve is people asking me if it turns me on that I turn people on with my writing. Let me solve this once and for all. No, it doesn’t. If it turns you on, well hey, that’s really really good. But I don’t write to turn people on. I write because I’m a writer.

2. Where and when were you born?

In a hospital, on a snowy December day, at midday.

3. Where did your parents meet?

Apparently through the contact pages… Mum told me this only recently.

4. Do you have any siblings? What are/were they like in four words?

I don’t have any siblings. I’m the only BoydieBird in the world. *sob, but not really*

5. Where do you live now, and with whom?

London, with eleven other really bonkers people.

6. What is your occupation?

Fiction author and website journalist. To put it in a very fancy way.

7. Write a full description of yourself.

Small. Bespectacled. Hair. Clothes. Snark.

8. To which social class do you belong?

I’m the Barenaked Lady. I belong in a class all on my own, darling.

9. Do you have any allergies, diseases, or other physical weaknesses?

Of course. But like hell that I’m going to tell you!

10. Are you right- or left-handed?

I’m a righty.

11. What does your voice sound like?

Like a Belgian with an Americo-Canadian accent.

12. What words and/or phrases do you use very frequently?

Ehm, like, shit, fuck, bloody.

13. What do you have in your pockets?

My house keys most likely.

14. Do you have any quirks, strange mannerisms, annoying habits, or other defining characteristics?

I gesticulate a lot. Like, watch Matt Smith in an interview. I’m exactly like that.
