There is something both compulsive and stupid about memes.
I fill in the following, and what am I going to do with the information? Nothing
What are YOU going to do with the information? Nothing, or maybe cross me off your Christmas card list.
On the other hand, completing memes is marginally better than vandalising telephone kiosks or molesting postpersons (bearers of acres of junk mail).
So here goes:

1. When you looked at yourself in the mirror today, what was the first thing you thought? I thought:
With a face like that, you should have kippers for breakfast

I only know Earth, but Saturn looks pretty.

3. Who is the 4th person on your missed call list on your cell phone?
I never miss more than two calls.

4. What is your favorite ring tone on your phone?
Diddly da doo doo da dee da dee dee. Do you know it?

5. Do you “label” yourself?
What am I? Marmalade?

I never wear a watch nowadays. One small compensation for giving up work.

Sorry, I wasn't awake at the time.

"If I catch anything interesting, I'll give you a call". (reference: moth trapping)

15. If you had to choose between a million bucks or to be able to fly what would it be?
With a million bucks, I could fly wherever I wanted. Dumb question.

16. Are you in love with someone?
No, but I am open to offers

17. The last song you listened to?

To my motor insurance company, protesting that I DID have a noclaims bonus, you bastards.

32. Your first love:
Margaret Benbow: only 5, but a stunner, red cheeks and long white legs.

33. Do you collect anything?
I love to buy notebooks but rarely use them. I hate to defile the first page.
