Postby Dotsie » Wed Nov 26, 2008 4:49 pm

Three things I like are:
1. Smiley people
2. weekends
3. Chocolate (which I p'raps should have put first)

Next person - tell us three things you like as well as three things you think you would like if you tried them. Then add another three things question!

Etc, etc!

Three things to make the World better.
Replace bureaucracy with common sense across the board
Show political correctness where the line should have been drawn
With modern technology I would open up more options in democracy to collate more detailed and individual specific input (as opposed to relying on MPs to know or care about your opinions)

Three things I thought I would like but didn't.
Hancock
Odd Thomas
Lobster

Three things that make me laugh.
When someone can't tell if I'm being serious or not
British Comedy(Red Dwarf, Blackadder, Dad's Army, The New Statesman, Harry Enfield, etc...)
Glasgow Humour (best seen anywhere with drink and family gatherings [however sombre])

Three things I couldn't be without.
My eyes
My books
My PC

Three of your worst nightmares.
(don't have many literal nightmares but from childhood...)
My brother and cousin were kidnapped by a policeman and later in the same dream a woman with a "monster" in her was blocking my way home. The irony is the "monster" was really a friend's dad and the woman was really the monster. My friend's dad's tail had ripped through her back, but she was still in control which scared the hell out of me.
I had another one when I was a little older in which I was kidnapped. I think I managed to escape before waking.
I used to have a recurring theme of being able to fly in my dreams, but I had one where I was struggling to fly when people could see me.
(ever notice how as you get older your dreams become shorter, less vivid and more dull or is it just me?)

Three things I like
RPing an Elf in Middle Earth (actually several, plus a couple of Dwarves (one a lady), a crotchety ole lady Hobbit, some Secondborn and even an Orc (shamelessly based on 'Lurtz' who wasn't even in the books...) :twisted:)
Discworld and most things that PTerry's written that aren't or only loosely
My lovely Springer Spaniel Rowley

Three things I might like
The PTerry books I haven't read yet (like the Tiffany ones :oops: ) - pretty sure of this I think :wink:
Being divorced / living on my own
Being paid to write

Three things I'd change
Being married
Being able to trust myself to come off anti-depressants without turning into an axe murderer... :shock:
Always being 'tactful' (I do speak my mind quite a lot but I always end up pulling punches when sometimes I should really just thwack away regardless)

Three things to make the World better.
Getting rid of George Bush *ticks in anticipation*
Banning all religious involvement in government - preferably banning religion period (The God(s) hate us anyway so we don't need them poking their noses into finding more reasons to kill each other)
Discovering a way to make every kind of lettuce (with the possible exception of watercress and rocket) mutate into high calorific foods so salads would become more interesting?

Three things I thought I would like but didn't.
Films 1 - 3 of Star Wars - a seminal lesson in not relying on CGI to get over poor scriptwriting and too much cynical merchandising and marketing techniques
Can that count as three? No? :? OK I'll come back later...
Getting promoted from my 'dream job' into management - it sucked to hell and back and damn nearly killed me inside :cry:
Being married? Can't think of anything else really - bit of a cheat too as mostly it was OK & we're still friends - just too poor to separate without a good enough reason to do so... :(

Three things that make me laugh.
Discworld
British comedy (I'll pinch Jinx's list but add - The Fast Show; Monty Python; Gimme Gimme Gimme; Drop the Dead Donkey; early Only Fools and Horses; The Vicar of Dibley - which incidently was something I thought I wouldn't like and did... etc etc...)
My dog getting so excited about going out that he does 'puppy-squeal' barks :D

Three things I couldn't be without.
My friends - especially the strange ones online :lol:
My left hand - 'cos it has all the brains... :lol:
Sight - is my primary sense I think

Three of your worst nightmares.
Where your teeth start falling out? First time I had it I was dead in a coffin which was at least understandable... But one time I woke up and found one of my molars (bottom set)had literally exploded along with the temporary filling I'd had put in a few days before :shock:
Thinking I'm surrounded by 'people' who are in fact androids or simply uninhabited 'shells' - I say thinking 'cos this sometimes happens when I'm awake too. When one android was my Mum it was really scary... :shock:
Waking nightmare - not being able to get online and post in the forums - I literally go cold turkey :cry:

Three things that are just plain backward in logic
Sleep is the 'little death' - I enjoy sleeping thank you and lots of nice stuff happens to me when I'm off in the Land of Nod. Plus you wake up of course which you couldn't do at all if you were dead - even a little bit?
You've got to be cruel to be kind? No you bl**dy haven't! Far too much cruelty goes on without inventing stupid excuses for it! call it being firm with prejudice maybe - although sloppy grammar itself is annoying... :evil:
Buy one get one free / 2 for the price of 1... et al - I ONLY WANT/NEED ONE! :evil: being just a family of 2 plus the dog I've lost count of the times I've binned far too many 'bonus' veggies/fruits or whatever because it's spoiled - I don't want to be a rubbish disposal operative for the big supermarkets (or wherever) just to get a 'bargain' I can't usefully eat or freeze or will be using for the next 3 years...

Three things I thought I wouldn't like but did...
