1) Does/did your current/most recent significant other have the same color eyes as you? yes, although I think his are a more intense blue.

2) Which cartoon character do you remember most fondly from your childhood? Snoopy

3) What's your favorite knick-knack/doo-dad/tchotchke? (Bonus points for a pic)
My Poopin' Moose, which is currently boxed, so I don't have a pic ... but I might have posted it here, so maybe ...

AHA!!



You lift it's head and it poops M&Ms.

4) Which is your favorite movie ever?

The Great Escape

5) It's raining. It wasn't when you left home. Do you wear a raincoat, use an umbrella, protect your head with your bag or something, or just get wet?

Just get wet, even though I typically have an umbrella in my car and in my briefcase.

6) Is any part of you itching right now?
Yes, but you don't really want to know where.

7) What was the last book you bought?
that's a toughie, because I buy so many, and hit a run of free downloads on the Kindle last night, which since they're free, don't really count, but ... okay The Prisoner - Thomas Disch

8) Do you use moisturizer regularly?
no

9) If calories, caffeine and cash considerations were no problem, what type of coffee would you order?
there are no calories in coffee until you start crapping it up with sugar and creamer. I drink my coffee black, so that's not an issue. I'd actually buy the same coffee I already buy. Most recent order of K-Cups includes Black Tiger, Santa's Buzz, Jet Fuel, and Double Black Diamond. I also tried something new, a Chocolate Glazed Donut flavor. Not sure if it's going to work for me, but I can always take it into the office if I don't like it. People are always looking for freebies there.

And no, I would not try that stuff that the civet cats poop out.

We both had blue/grey eyes. (both have...we're just not SO any more lol)

2) Which cartoon character do you remember most fondly from your childhood?
That'd be a toss up between Barnaby Bear and Danger Mouse

3) What's your favorite knick-knack/doo-dad/tchotchke? (Bonus points for a pic)There's a mock-parcel with a magnet to attach it to a fridge. It used to have a label on it (long since detached) which said something along the lines of 'This parcel may seem empty, but it is filled with love. Keep it with you always and blah blah blah (can't recall the rest). Was given to me by my Mum when I was really down. Must be about 10 -15 years ago.

4) Which is your favorite movie ever?
Tough one this...I have many fave movies which move up and down the list depending on my mood: probably a bit of a toss-up between Bladerunner, Pulp Fiction, and Re-animator.

5) It's raining. It wasn't when you left home. Do you wear a raincoat, use an umbrella, protect your head with your bag or something, or just get wet?
I almost always have a hat. If not on my head, then in my bag. At the moment, my favourite and therefore most used hat is a brown leather peaked cap. I never use umbrellas. If I don't have a hat I get wet.

6) Is any part of you itching right now?
some part of me is always itching.

7) What was the last book you bought?
*thinks* Not sure. It was either a Doctor Who novel or it was a book about the Army of George III

8) Do you use moisturizer regularly?
face and hands several times a day. Head to toe at least twice a day.

9) If calories, caffeine and cash considerations were no problem, what type of coffee would you order?
medium-sized Latte to go - which is what I usually order. If I am out and about I'll probably have two or three of these.

Update to 4: I cannot believe I didn't mention the old black and white film of Hamlet, with Olivier. I saw it when I was about 9 years old ( i think), and fell completely in love with it. Had no expectations of it. Was only watching it because my big brother had been through a Shakespeare phase and I was copying. Hit me right between the eyes. Was mad into Shakespeare for years. Bought myself the complete works with some Christmas or Birthday booktokens. Or begged it for a birthday pressie..can't remember now. I must have seen a dozen different interpretations of that play now. But I still get a shiver down my spine with Olivier's performance.

Actually, I'm not really liking this quiz. Soz and all that, it just doesn't tickle my fancy.
But it IS a quiz. And furthermore, one with no rhyme or reason. So I can't help myself.

1) Does/did your current/most recent significant other have the same color eyes as you?
Most did. I have had only one SO (well, O anyway) with brown eyes, the rest have been blue or a near facsimile thereof.

2) Which cartoon character do you remember most fondly from your childhood?
Dangermouse. Because Dads used to watch it with me and laugh at the jokes I couldn't understand.

3) What's your favorite knick-knack/doo-dad/tchotchke? (Bonus points for a pic)
I have a jade frog [below]. Although I have no beliefs whatsoever, I sometimes take the frog with me to the ATM, just in case it helps.

4) Which is your favorite movie ever?
Probably Shaun of the Dead. I have a top ten, but books would be nearly impossible (I doubt I could get below a top 20)

5) It's raining. It wasn't when you left home. Do you wear a raincoat, use an umbrella, protect your head with your bag or something, or just get wet?
Wha? If Mum reminds me or I've paid attention to the weather report, I'll have a brolly. If, like this morning, I went upstairs to get an umbrella at her behest but got distracted by Diz and got caught in a shower, I get wet. Unless I've not been arsed to wash my heair and have my hat on - in which case the rain is secondary.

6) Is any part of you itching right now?
No

7) What was the last book you bought?
Confession. Michael Palin's second volume of diaries. I had some Waterstones points accrued from last year and treated myself.

8) Do you use moisturizer regularly?
I should but I don't.

9) If calories, caffeine and cash considerations were no problem, what type of coffee would you order?
Irish coffee
