43 Days: The Swap Bot Questions

It's Sunday. It's good weather for ducks. The cat is at my feet. I haven't done enough housework this weekend. It's going to be a busy week.

I'm also on the phone to Telstra (phone company). May as well have some fun while I wait my life away, rather than getting frustrated.

So it's get this done before I go out for dinner with Blarney and Barney.

Questions, as always, from Bev at Sunday Stealing.


1.Where were you 3 hours ago?..

I was in a movie theatre watching Mary Shelley. Not a bad film at all.



2.Have you ever eaten a crayon?

Possibly when I was a very young child.

3.Is there anything pink within 10 feet of you?

My lip balm and my food file are pink - and there are a couple of books with pink covers in the mix. Pink is not my favourite colour by any stretch. - I avoid it at all costs.

4.When is the last time you went to the mall?

I put a couple of letters in the mailbox this afternoon as I was coming out of the cinema. And I believe I checked my postbox in the CBD last Friday - I normally try and get there once  a week. Oh, the mall - this morning. That's where the gym is found.

5.Are you wearing socks right now?

No. Even though it is the middle of winter.

6.When was the last time you drove out of town?

Far too long ago. I was in the Dandenongs for a wedding in November. I joke with a friend that I need a passport to go to her place in Mordialloc - about 25 kilometres from the CBD. That is bad - I need to get out of town more.

7.Have you been to the movies in the last 5 days?

I was at the movies this afternoon. I'm going again on Tuesday night to see Ant Man and the Wasp with my kid brother. We like seeing Marvel films together.

8.What was the last thing you had to drink?

I'm drinking a cup of chocolate and mint rooibos tea with a splash of macadamia milk. This is how we roll around my place (I've been caffeine free for over 3 months now - love rooibos tea.)

9.What are you wearing right now?

A red jumper and a pair of skinny jeans with holey knees, and laceless sneakers.

10.Do you wash your car or let the car wash do it?

I wash it at one of those car wash places every few weeks. Occasionally, when I have a voucher, I let the guys at the airport parking place do it for me. In Australia we have car wash places which save water and let you do it yourself.

11.Last food that you ate?

Some veggie chips - once again, at the cinema. I take my own. Popcorn is stupidly expensive.

12.Where were you last week at this time?

I think I was here, having a quiet one with the cat. I'm liking having the cat about. He's good company.

13.Have you bought any clothing items in the last week?

No. I've looked at a lot of shoes, but I don't need them.

14.When is the last time you ran?

Yesterday. At the gym - I did a couple of intermittent sprints. That counts, doesn't it?  The last time I ran properly was a few years ago when I was running half marathons. I miss running.

15.What's the last sporting event you watched?

I think I went to the footy (Australian Rules football) about two years ago - Hawks vs the Crows. The Crows won. The Crows are not doing well this year.  I also have no interest in the world cup, nor any other sport. Oh, hang on, I think about a year ago I was forced to watch a quarter of rugby union. After that I took my book and went and had a long bath.

Good for you on going caffeine-free! I am looking that monster in the eye and the time of withdrawl and detoxing has me dragging my feet.

Cats are very good company...I'd love to have a little kittycat.
Rooibos tea is delicious. I need to try flavors like you describe.
I also misread #4 at first, as two ll's together looks far too much like li.
