Leftover bits of meme

There are fifteen more questions to that meme. See here for full account of how they became detached. For what it's worth I fully support the original editorial decision, there's nothing like squeezing two posts out of one piece of traveling internet ephemera, is there?

1. What shirt are you wearing?

I am wearing a home-made copy of a short-puffy-sleeved girly blouse that I saw for sale in Cue some weeks ago. It is pale olive with pink jasmine printed on it. Under that I am wearing my Achewood Great Outdoor Fight t-shirt. Over both there is a cardigan the colour of melted caramel icecream onto which is pinned a homemade brooch with a cat on it and a 1930s "Wattle Day For Children" badge.

I am also wearing a homemade brown skirt with lime green and pink checks, mauve tights, and red shoes which could do with a clean. I am also wearing a bit too much makeup.

The total effect is more dog's breakfast than uncovered cat's meat.

If I had a moth-eaten squirrel jacket with torn seams held together by safety pins like Rhoda Courtney's, I would certainly be wearing that as well.

2. Name the brand of your shoes you're currently wearing?

Ancient Campers. These ones.

3. Bright or Dark Room?

Just right.

4. What do you think about the person who took this survey before you?

I think very highly of all of them. One day I hope we'll all be able to get together somewhere.

5. Where is your nearest 7-11?

There is a 7-11 about three minutes from home, but it's not mine.

6. Who told you he/she loved you last?


7. How many drugs have you done in the last three days?

Goodness me, none at all. I've drunk a few cups of coffee and some not very nice white wine. I don't like the sort of drugs that one "does".

8. How many rolls of film do you need developed?

I think there is a half-exposed roll of film in the SLR camera which was last used three or four years ago. It's probably rotted away by now.
There are about thirty photos waiting to be downloaded from my digital camera.

9. What do you do when vending machines steal your money?

Poke ineffectually around inside the coin returning compartment, put in a few more coins just to confirm that the thing really is broken, then give up. Life's unfair and the robots have us over a barrel.

10. Are you touchy feely?

Only with small furry animals and my partner I'm afraid.

11. Name three things that you have on you at all times?

Scabs. Old toenail varnish. The mark of Satan.

12. What was the last thing you paid for with cash?

It was a purple biro which I should really be using to write corrections on essays with.

13. Does anything hurt on your body right now?

The muscles at the front of where the arm joins onto the torso. It's from overenthusiastic gym stuff two days ago.

14. How much cash do you have on you?

In my bag there is about $80. There's not usually so much but I took money out of a teller machine last night to pay for dinner, which in the event only cost $15.50 - we shared a table with some snooty real estate agent types in a busy dumpling shop and we think that one of our little $3 plates might have been put onto their tab.

If they had been less cat's bum-faced I'd have tried harder to sort it out.

15. What's a word that rhymes with “DOOR?”

Bore? Appropriate.

Oh i can't do anymore - the first bit was bad enough. But i appreciate that you & &duck have soldiered on. Though the scab info was probably too much info. But very very funny. Where exactly is your mark of Satan?
