Silly Surveys

Do you remember years ago when quizzes and surveys used to fill the walls of Facebook and Tumblr and MySpace and Bebo?  They were pointless and procrastinating, but I loved them.  I love filling in forms, and I love typing – so they were a perfect waste of time for me.

Recently one of the Tumblrs that I follow decided he wanted to do one of those….

And it made me want to do another one – or six – so here I go.

1) Do you usually sleep with your closet door open or closed?

Currently my wardrobe doesn’t shut properly, so open.  But I have no fear of what’s inside it.  Me and the monster are friends.

2) Do you take the shampoos and conditioner bottles from hotels?

Usually only one, and not because I want/need them, but because I’m a souvenir freak.

3) Have you ever “done it” in a hotel room?

Yep.  I do “it” wherever and whenever I can.

4) Where is your next vacation?

I have no idea.  I was going to go back to Dublin for my birthday in October, but then I got a craving for America.  So then I was trying to decide where in America I should go.  But I decided I’d rather save money to move and decorate than go on holiday this year.  So I dunno.

5) Have you ever stolen a street sign before?

Yes.  And a traffic cone, although not on the same drunken encounter.

No one, probably.  But then I’m not even convinced that anyone reads my blog at all.

I do, but more for the pictures.  I have an Edward Monkton calendar this year.  It’s cute and hilarious.

8) Where are you?
