Mine would be a toss up between 'don't sh!t where you nest' and 'keep your mouth closed when you're cleaning the toilet.'

What was the last movie you watched?

Belfast. The film Kenneth Brannagh made about growing up during the troubles.

Do you like going to the cinema?

No, because I have hyperacusis and misophonia regarding small sounds.
If I hear someone chewing or slurping (which is possible up to 200m away), I'll want to murder them.

I'd prefer not to kill people if I can avoid it.

I do like the popcorn, however.

Yes I do. I go with a friend usually who also likes the cinema.

Same question.

Yes, I prefer to go on weekdays in the day when there is usually only a handful of people, and only for movies that I'm really interested in, which means about two or three times a year.

Do you like swimming?

In theory, yes. Last did some swimming in 1998.

Do you have good bus services in the area you live in?

No idea. There are busses but I don't use them.


Do you put your summer clothes away in winter? Vice versa?

I wear t-shirts both in the summer and winter, so those stay in my wardrobe all year round.

I put away my shorts for winter since I don't wear them in the winter.

I wear most of the same clothes year-round, so I don't put anything away either.
I don't own shorts.
I keep jumpers available in the summer to wear at night, esp. if I'm on the water.

My house is actually freezing in the summer because of AC.
It's hot in winter because of the fireplace.

I never know what season it is half the time anyway.


Did you like making arts and crafts in school, and did you keep any?

Not really. We had a psychopathic, sadistic woodwork teacher called Nobby Clark, and I hated his lessons. We made a pencil sharpener, which was a piece of sandpaper glued to a block of balsa wood, lol. I didn't keep that.

What subject did you like most at school?

English was my favourite class.

I got to read books!

Yay for books.

Same question.

Young - Maths, and any kind of research project involving the library

Older - Ethics and Philosophy, Art History


Do you remember being forced to read any books you hated?

I had to read several books that I didn't like when studying in 6th form for two different English A-Levels (language and literature).

Same question.

The worst was an Anthropology text by some dude named Bruce Trigger.
Science Fiction like Farenheit 451, 1984, etc.
I actually had to teach 1984.
Same with Madame Bovary. I hated that book.
I was never a fan of Atwood either.
Or, Jane Austen.

Did you ever fake reading a book for school?

Lol, in the late 1960s and early to mid 1970s, we had a bizarre 'Holiday Reader' scheme at our secondary school, whereby we were supposed to read a prescribed novel in our summer holiday, then write an essay about it on our first day back in September. Usually I read the book, but on one occasion I didn't bother (it was some sort of Sherlock Holmes compendium, as I recall), but wrote an essay on it anyway.

A few years later, when I was 16 and about to enter the 6th Form, the holiday reader was Solzhenitsyn's 'One Day In The Life of Ivan Denisovitch'. I couldn't be bothered to read it, but on the first day back at school, I discovered that our English teacher was to be Mr Johnson, a fearsome Headmaster of the old-school and not one to be crossed. In a blind panic I then read the Solzhenitsyn novel in about two days, before our first English lesson, only to find that he didn't even mention it, and we never had to write an essay on it....

Did you have any 'fearsome' teachers at your school?
