I have some ologies

I nicked this one from Helen. Feel free to comment, rip it, post a link to your own version, tell me to stop messing about and do my homework… whatever.

What is your salad dressing of choice?

Salt. You need anything else on salad?

What is your favorite sit-down restaurant?
I loved Gong Corner in Kuta, Bali. And TJ’s Mexican restaurant there is also awesome. Back home I usually enjoy a decent meal at a Harvester’s, 2for1 or Beefeater. I’m easy.

What food could you eat for 2 weeks straight and not get sick of it?
Beans on toast
What are your pizza toppings of choice?
Chicken, chili peppers, green peppers, red peppers, ham

What do you like to put on your toast?

I have no house… but when I did I had two. One was mine in the living room, the other belonged to my housemate in her room.

What color cell phone do you have?
Silver and black

Who was the last person to call you?
My mum on the landline at my aunt’s. Mum again on my mobile on Sunday, though I had to call her back.

Are you right-handed or left-handed?


Have you ever had anything removed from your body?
Teeth. And regularly I self-remove snot and earwax. Does poop count?

What is the last heavy item you lifted?
My briefcase for work. I swear little cuz weighs less

If it were possible, would you want to know the day you were going to die?


If you could change your name, what would you change it to?
I don’t think I would. If I had to then I’d just legally change to “Mosh” as so many people know me by my nickname. Why complicate matters?

Would you drink an entire bottle of hot sauce for $1000?
Yes. Easy.

How many pairs of flip flops do you own?

None – I don’t like them. I’ve got some fake Crocs that I’ve had to superglue together, though.

Last time you had a run-in with the cops?
Parking my camper van in Wanaka back in 2006. I parked at the side of the road, facing the wrong direction… Details on this blog post.

Last person you talked to in person:
Auntie downstairs at dinner.

Favorite Month?
June, as then I’m free to go travelling for a bit. If I can afford it.

Missing someone?

Yes. Very much indeed. Sadly, I don’t think they’re missing me.

Sad. Lonely. Stressed, though not as bad as earlier. Dejected. Rejected.

What are you listening to?
Wind and rain outside.

Just the screen on my laptop.

Worrying about?
Getting through the next 2 1/2 weeks, passing my crit, seeing that someone I miss again (or rather the possibility of not seeing them), meeting someone special.

What’s the last movie you watched?
Taking Woodstock

Do you smile often?
Right now, no. I’ma  grumpy, miserable of bugger at the moment. Usually I’m not too bad.

Do you always answer your phone?
When I’m able to, yes.

It’s four in the morning and you get a text message, who is it?
As if. Nobody I know texts me at times like that.

If you could change your eye color what would it be?
I wouldn’t.

Do you own a digital camera?
I own two, plus the one in my mobile.

Have you ever had a pet fish?

Favorite Christmas song?
Slade’s Merry Xmas Everyone.

What’s on your wish list for your birthday?
Nothing. Cash would be nice. Preferably from SAAS so I know my course fees are paid. A hug and kiss from that person I miss would make it the best birthday ever. Got to live in hope.

Does the future make you more nervous or excited?
Right now I’m not looking past the next working day.

Do you have any saved texts?
No special ones, just those I’ve not binned from my inbox yet.

Ever been in a car wreck?
Several. Not all my own fault.

Do you have an accent?
I have some kind of mix which results in there effectively not being one. I think.

What is the last song to make you cry?
The new version of Blaydon Races which is raising money for the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation. Just the extra verse they’ve put in to pay tribute to him. I didn’t actually cry but it certainly made my eyes moist.

Plans tonight?
More work, lesson planning, stress and feeling sorry for myself.

Have you ever felt like you hit rock bottom?
Much as it may sound, I’m not that bad right now. When I found out in New Zealand that my then-girlfriend was seeing someone else… that’s about the lowest I ever remember feeling.

Name 3 things you bought yesterday:
A bag of Asda Midget Gems. And another one. And another one.

Have you ever been given roses?
Nope. Well, the chocolates.

Current hate right now?
The state of my love life.

Met someone who changed your life? When?
The aforementioned ex. Regardless of what happened at the end, she’s the reason I sold up and shipped out. Were it not for her I’d not have done all the travelling, experienced so much and wouldn’t now be sat here trying to convince myself I can stay sane for long enough to become a teacher.

Name three people who might complete this.
Nobody, no-one and someone else I don’t know.

What were you doing 12AM last night?
Marking third year DTP tests.

Why am I still waking up before my alarm?

It’s nice to meet another salad purist. 🙂 I was beginning to think I was the only one in the world. The waiters here in the US look at you like you’ve just confessed to being an axe murderer if you ask for your salad without dressing on it. Silly me, actually wanting to taste the salad, and not drown it in dressing.

Hey mate, I hope you don’t mind me commenting on it, but you seem to be in a similar situation to me believe it or not with regards to your love life! I think this pretty much sums up EXACTLY how I’m feeling at the current time too:

‘Missing someone?
Yes. Very much indeed. Sadly, I don’t think they’re missing me.

Sad. Lonely. Stressed, though not as bad as earlier. Dejected. Rejected.’

I know it’s cliche but if it’s meant to be it’s meant to be. (That’s what I keep trying to tell myself anyway!) Keep your chin up and keep working hard and you’ll be ok.

Hey Mosh,

No worries, sorry, as I said I know it’s cliche! But I guess the point is you found someone else before and you will again. Just take your time and try to enjoy the single life for now!
