Eighth Crushed Sunday Memusetica

Courtesy Of Judd Corizan.

The idea with this one, I think, is that you peel off the layers to find the person underneath...
Kind of a little nosey, eh? Still. We'll see how we go. If the answer 'That's for me to know and you to TRY find out, but good luck to you', don't be surprised :)

LAYER 1: Tell us your...

* Name: Crushed. At least, it is on this blog, anyway.
* Birthday (month, day): 7th March.
* Birthplace: A well known brewery town in the Midlands....
* Current location: A residential overspill town south of Birmingham.
* Eye color: Blue- grey. Blue round the edges, grey further in. So they look more blue when my pupils are dilated.
* Hair color: Brown.
* Height: 5ft7
* Righty or lefty: Right handed to the degree I really only use my left to smoke with.
* Zodiac sign: I dispute this. In the days when they took this seriously, the hour of your birth was only important to work out when you were conceived. Premature births are actually in the wrong star sign. So I'm kind of a False Pisces.

LAYER 2: What's...

* Your heritage: Irish on one side, Swedish on the other.
* The shoes you wore today: Suedes.
* Your weakness: Addictive personality, Indecisiveness.
* Your fears: Dieing having achieved nothing.
* Your perfect pizza: Ham, Pepperoni and Mushroom.
* Goals you’d like to achieve: A General Strike across the globe in all sectors, May 1st 2025.
* Your first waking thoughts: Why do I have to get up now?
* Your best physical feature: My eyes, I'd say. Though I have a cute pout.
* Your most missed memory: How can you MISS a memory? A missing memory is one you can't remember, surely?
University days, I'd say.

LAYER 3: Do you...

* Smoke: Yes, quite heavily.
* Cuss: Yes. Lots.
* Sing: If you call it that, yes.
* Do you think you’ve been in love: Yes. Twice.
* Did you go to college: If this is what we call University in the UK, yes.
* Liked high school: At the time, no. Actually, no. It sucked.
* Want to get/stay married: You must be kidding!
* Believe in yourself: Yes, I do.
* Think you’re attractive: I am, in a kind of boyish little elf kind of way, but I don't know how long it will last.
* Think you’re a health freak: No. It's against my principles.
* Get along with your parent(s): Funnily enough, I went to see them to day. I see them every couple of months. I find if we keep it to that, we get on great. I departed laden with gifts, so as things stand, yes, I do.
* Like thunderstorms: Do I look like a crazy scientist?
* Play an instrument: No.

LAYER 4: In the past month have you…

* Drank alcohol: Yes. Most days.
* Smoked: ???? In the past hour I've had three.
* Done a drug: Believe it or not, no.
* Made out: I believe so, yes.
* Gone on a date: No.
* Gone to the mall: Several.
* Eaten an entire box of Oreos:.No. Mainly because I haven't a clue what they are.
* Eaten sushi: No. I do like Sushi though.
* Been on stage: Afraid not. I do love being on stage though. Better than sex.
* Been dumped: No. That's not quite how things work in my life.
* Gone skating: ???? No.
* Gone skinny dipping: It's November!
* Stolen Anything: No.

LAYER 5: Have you ever…

* Played a game that required removal of clothing: Isn't sex a game?
* Been trashed or extremely intoxicated: Well of COURSE I have.
* Been caught “doing something”: Is this sex again? Well, yes. That's part of the reason you HAVE sex in public.
* Been called a tease: Yes. Frequently.
* Gotten beaten up: Believe it or not, no.
* Shoplifted: I was a teenager.


* Age you did get/hope to be married: I never did.
* Numbers and names of children (either you have or want): 6. Isildur, Anarion, Eowyn, Names of other three to be decided as and when.
* Describe your dream mate: Rihanna.
* How do you want to die: In a hail of bullets in a blaze of glory, a Martyr to the Revolution.
* What did you want to be when you grow up: James Bond.
* What country would you most like to visit: India.

LAYER 7: Now tell...

* Name a drug you’ve taken illegally: Every one of them, pretty much, except I've never injected heroin.
* Name a person you could trust with my life: My best mate.
* Name a favorite CD that you own: Violator, Depeche Mode, 1989.
* Number of piercings: None.
* Number of tattoos: None, but I keep thinking I should...
* Number of times my name has appeared in the newspaper: My name appeared once when I was five. The URL to this blog appeared in the Financial Times letters page recently. Pass me my trumpet....
* Name a past experience that you regret: Only one. A person I wish had never been in my life.

Well, I actually answered them all!

So, next week, same deal again.
Hope you had a good weekend, you bunch of sultry, luscious, sophisticated darlings and philosophical, debonaire, urbane comrades that I call my readership.

Oreo's are chocolate biscuits from America..they've just started selling them over here. My daughter likes them a lot but thankfully that's one type of biscuit I don't like :)

Hey..I'd love to read more about that zodiac stuff.

Your birthday is the same as my middle sons. The one I have so much trouble and worry for. :))

I'm still staggered by the fact you didn't know what an oreo was. But no matter ^^ These memusetica things are quite amusing.

Well done Sir! I may steal this myself...

And yes Kate, I bought them twice while living down there, and they were freaking expensive, one tube of them was more than what you'd pay for twice as many here!

Oreo cookies are best dunked in milk.

Great answers. I thought that missed memory was phrased a bit odd too.

I LOVE your Warhol portrait on the side bar.

So are these only personal things we are going to see now under the new Crushed blogging rules?

So since you are premature you are not a true Pisces? I don't think actually buy that but since I know and care little about astrology what do I care?

NurseExec- You too :)

Kate- I'll have to look out for them...

Basically, the theory of Astrology makes sense- in a universe where the Earth is the centre of the Universe.

There are eight planets in this system. each goes round the earth.
The Sun clearly affects us, so does the Moon. So surely the others do somehow?
In ways we can't see so much?

Thing is, it becomes a bollocks theory when we learn the Sun is the centre of the Universe.

Seventh day of the third month...

I often think it's an interesting date of birth...

Akai- Well, I didn't know who Kate Middleton was until she and William finished!

I don't watch much TV, you see.

Fusion- Ever tried Pringles?
I can eat a whole tube in one go...

Aunt Reeny- I must admit, I really don't like biscuit dunking. I think it's kind of a bad habit. Leaves debris in the mug.

For some reason, it makes me retch washing a mug with bits of biscuit in it.

Deana- It was, wasn't it?

Yes, I think it's quite cool. Though I might update it with a more recent photo.

jmb- No, it's just personal as in, responding to drivel from others stops.
Someone has to stop sometime.

Personal stuff where it's relevant, not when it isn't.

I'm simply trying to return things to the principles I started with, plus the experience I've gained.

I'm not a true Pisces because my soul entered my body at the time that the soul should enter the body for the following star sign.

The point about your nature, is the layout of the Heavens when your soul passed through it on its journey to conception.
