Time and date: 5:40pm 1/4/15
Average hours of sleep a night: 8. Any less than this and I am completely useless and will spend the entire day cranky and complaining about how I didn’t get 8 hours of sleep.
Last thing I googled: Variations in the electricity act (1994) review Queensland. - not very exciting I know but gimme a break, it was for work.
Nickname: Well Alex is short for Alexander so I guess that counts. Maybe also “hey you” or “mate” but everyone gets called that here in Australia.
Birthday: Nice try. I don’t have a birthday. I gestated in the air vents of a waste water management plant.
Sexual orientation: I’m engaged so I guess, anyone who is my fiancé.
Height: 182cm (or 6’ on the dot in the old language)
Favorite color: Black. And don’t go giving me that “black isn’t a colour, it’s an absence of colour” crap. I went to art school so I’ve heard it enough times.
One place that makes me happy: lots of different places make me happy. Either home or North Beach, Wollongong. Yes it’s a real place, look it up.
How many blankets do I sleep under: Blankets?! Are you mad? It’s freaking 30+ degrees (86F for my american friends) here. I usually have just a sheet but I kick it off most nights.
Favorite movie: The light horsemen. I still choke up at the scene where they have to charge the guns at Beersheba. Curse these emotions!!
What I’m wearing right now: shorts and a sheen of sweat cos it’s hot and I just got home from the office. Don’t judge me!!!
Last book you read: The blade itself - joe Abercrombie. You should totally read it too. So freaking good!
Most used phrase(s): hmmm… It’s probably a swear. Usually something like “oh for fucks sake” or some other variation. I make a lot of mistakes and am, somehow, always surprised when I make one.
What I last said to a family member: probably teasing my sister about the weather here. She lives in Scotland so she doesn’t get nice sunny days any more.
Favorite beverage: Water is always good. XXXX Bitter for the booze option. It’s an Australian beer, the joke goes “why do they call it ‘XXXX’? Cos Queenslanders can’t spell ‘beer’!” Chortle chortle chortle….
Favorite food: Vegemite, cheese and tomato on toast. Pretty stereotypical but don’t knock it till you’ve tried it. Greatest hangover cure too.
Last movie I watched in theaters: Big Hero 6. It was awesome.
Dream vacation: I want to see every country on earth. Maybe just through the planes window for some of the more “unstable” regions though. Or getting a big convertible ‘57 Chevy and driving Route 66.
Dream wedding: the one I am currently planning (and trying to pay for). Huge party with all our family and mates.
Dream pet: A tiger but minus the maulings. Maybe a crocodile instead (still no mauling though).
Dream job: My dreams died years ago. At the moment my dream job is anything but my current one. Preferably something that doesn’t involve sitting in a blank cubicle and having your soul drained from you little by little every day until one day you wake up and realise you’re retiring and you haven’t accomplished a single thing worth celebrating and that you are going to die, unremembered and unloved and soon. That or getting paid to draw. That would be pretty cool.
I tag darth-sebious, blood-of-asaheim, kaulicat & Kjangsta, and anyone else who wants to!
