The Growing Relay

So one of my favorite bloggers decided to throw a blog relay at me. The rules are simple, but effective:

1) Post all questions, and your answers, on your blog
2) Replace a question you don't like by a new one
3) Add an additional question at the end (hence "The growing relay")
4) Tag 8 people to continue the relay

1 What was the first movie you went to see at the cinema?
Not counting Saturday afternoon kids' flicks; For your eyes only

2 Song of the day?
Greenday's Know your enemy - It was on the radio as I arrived at work this morning, and got stuck in my head for the rest of the day

3 What's your favorite movie?
Just one? Tough call. I guess all 3 original Star Wars movies would be very high up on the list; and for diversity, I'll add The life of Brian.

4 What was the highlight of your day?
This being a work day (and an uneventful at that), I'd have to say lunch (hey, it was really yum; see also # 24).

5 Name something you definitely want to learn
How to use my Jedi powers both for the general good and for personal gain

6 What was the last thing you bought?
Today's lunch

7 What's your favorite weather?
Clear blue sky, low humidity, around 30C

8 What is currently your primary goal?
To get these questions over with

9 Have you ever been mistaken for a celebrity?
No, but people frequently mistake me for someone who gives a shit ;-)

10 If you were given a fully furnished house in a location of your choice, where would you want it delivered?
Somewhere on Sydney's Northern beaches, on the waterfront

11 What would you change about yourself, if you could?
Stop it already – I'm that close to convince myself that I'm perfect

12 If you could spend the next few hours anywhere on Earth, where would that be?
Somewhere in the Whitsundays

13 What compliment do you really enjoy receiving?
The compliment I really love to get is something I could only mention in my Adults Only blog (if I ever get to do one).

14 Who would you like to meet?
The guy who invented the undo button

15 What's your favorite piece of clothing in your closet?
The super-comfy t-shirt that's now so out of shape it's only suitable for wearing around the house

16 What's your dream job?
Project consultant – cracking smartass comments, getting paid obscene amounts of money for stating the bleeding obvious, having hordes of plebs to do the actual work, and raking all the credit (and yes; although the title is different, this is pretty close what I'm doing now – except for the obscene amounts of money part, unfortunately)

17 What are your favorite bands?
Bon Jovi, Cold Chisel, Acca Dacca, Alice Cooper

18 Three things that make you smile?
1) Monty Python
2) Receiving photos of my youngest relatives
3) [see imaginary Adults only blog :-)]

19 What's your favorite city?

Back Betty in the Spiderbait version. Ok, not exactly a recent release, but I'm fussy with songs these days.

21 What's your favorite TV series?
All time: Star Trek
Right now: Underbelly

22 What are you wearing right now?
For $ 6.99/min, I show you

23 Your favorite book?
The Sydney Street Directory – Until I can bring myself to buy one of them GPS thingies, it's an essential part of my life (can't say the same of many other books ;-) )

24 What is / was for lunch today?
Fish & Chips

25 When is knocking off time today?
5 pm

26 Catholic or protestant?

27 What was your very first CD (that you bought with your own money)?
I remember raiding the bargain bin after I finally got a CD player. Whatever I ended up buying must have been less than impressive as I have no recollection whatsoever what it actually was.

28 What movie did you last watch?
For a few dollars more

29 The best concert you've seen to date?
Bon Jovi (early 90s)

30 What would you be doing if you weren't busy working thru this long list of questions?
Trying to come up with a blog-worthy post

31 Your favorite drink?
Booze: Beer
Soft drink: Coke

32 What decision do you regret?
Not having moved sooner to where I live now

33 Who would you like to have with you when getting stuck in an elevator?

Ok, that's all. Since 8 is probably the total number of my readers, I would like to invite everybody to pick up and continue the relay.
