The Last 40 Questions from Bud

The magnificent Bev has taken over Sunday Stealing, which is most excellent, as she is a most excellent person.

I should be writing proper stuff. Five questions and a hundred words I reckon. That is a good way to go.

1. My uncle once : lost to me playing pool. He's never forgiven me.

2. Never in my life : have I taken intravenous drugs. No thank you.

3. When I was seventeen : I really have no clue at all as to what the world was about or who I was.

4. High School was : incredibly awful, but a good proving ground.

5. I will never forget : the first time I slayed a huntsman spider. I was so proud of myself.

6. I once met :Jeremy Clarkson at a restaurant. I bummed a cigarette off of him.

7. There’s this girl I know who : has the ability to turn people against her in less that 30 minutes. It's very sad to see.

13. Susan Boyle : is a bit of an enigma - pity people are so mean to her.

I didn't know people still ironed. Well, I guess I did but I don't do it. If something has to be ironed, I don't buy it.
