Meme...

... from [livejournal.com profile] misswyoming 

01) Are you currently in a serious relationship?
Yes, I’d say so, with [livejournal.com profile] cmmathieson. Just passed the 37 month mark i.e. three years and a bit.

02) What was your dream growing up?
Various dreams of trying to improve myself, and change.

03) What talent do you wish you had?
Being able to open the twisty door lock without dislocating my finger.

04) If I bought you a drink what would it be?
Something non-alcoholic and gluten free, I’m maybe too boring!

Potatoes, do they count?

06) What was the last book you read?
Reference books 99% of the time.

07) What zodiac sign are you?

Capricorn.

08) Any Tattoos and/or Piercings?
Aside from my ears (which have since closed up), no.

09) Worst Habit?
:-) Can I write that here?

10) If you saw me walking down the street would you offer me a ride?
I can’t drive. So, I’d ask the driver to stop and let you on – either Caroline (my partner) in the car, or whichever bus/train/tram/whatever I happened to be on at the time!

11) What is your favourite sport?

I am not as fit as I should be, for various reasons.

12) Do you have a Pessimistic or Optimistic attitude?

Yes. Optimistic usually, but when it’s late in the day, or I am tired/frustrated, I can get a bit pessimistic.

13) What would you do if you were stuck in an elevator with me?

“Hello…. So, doing anything interesting this weekend…”

14) Worst thing to ever happen to you?

Lots of times!

15) Tell me one weird fact about you.

Caroline and myself both grew up in Dundee, some years apart, but that is not how we met.

16) Do you have any pets?

Yes and no. We have a menagerie of soft toys.

17) What if I showed up at your house unexpectedly?

Put the kettle on and let you in!

18) What was your first impression of me?

Interested to find out more!

19) Do you think clowns are cute or scary?

Both. Sorry, I’m sitting on the fence.

20) If you could change one thing about how you look, what would it be?.

Having changed the first thing already, this time it would need to be chest.

21) Would you be my crime partner or my conscience?

Conscience, I’m too honest!

22) What colour eyes do you have?

Greeney-blue.

23) Ever been arrested?

Nope, but I have been asked to Stop & Account when photographing buses, in obscure parts of London. Been to prison once, but that was visiting as an escorted official guest of the staff member from the same charity that I did/do work for.

24) Bottle or can soda?

Bottles, as I’m less likely to spill them!

25) If you won $10,000 today, what would you do with it?

Assuming it’s the same…do what I'd do with money anyway, try and make everyone happy.

26) What's your favourite place to hang out at?

Depends what you mean by hanging out. Bus spotting – parts of London, Ferrytoll (near Edinburgh), Glasgow bus station gates, Dundee City Churches/Overgate area, Perth Mill St/Bus Station. Shopping – Cambridge city centre, Cambridge retail park, London, Bluewater, Glasgow.

27) Do you believe in ghosts?
Think I used to.

28) Favourite thing to do in your spare time?
A lot of travelling.

29) Do you swear a lot?
Hell no! ;-)

30) Biggest pet peeve?
Unreliable public transport in certain areas.

31) In one word, how would you describe yourself?
Wasted? Or is that too critical? Lets try again, painful? Hopeful probably sums it all up!

32) Do you believe/appreciate romance?
Yes, although for the large part of life, I’d have thought not!

33) Favourite and least favourite food?

Like sweet things and Italian. Don’t like fish, and currently experimenting and investigating problems with gluten (so, gluten-free Italian).

34) Do you believe in God?

I was brought up in a religious house, and brought up as Christian. However, the realisation that, when one has that many problems, there is little that could be done to help. At the same time, being abused at school in the name of god didn’t help matters. Despite all this, I did try it all one more time as a teenager, trying to win support from my family for other things. That didn’t work.

35) Will you repost this so I can fill it out and do the same for you?
Yes!

Even more new friends

Further to my previous post with regards to new helljay friends, hello to [livejournal.com profile] judo100 .

Forgot to mention last night – you can also find me and add me on Facebook and Twitter. I also sometimes use Bebo, although I’m mostly on Facebook these days.

So, why the username? Well, at the time I chose my LiveJournal user ID, suzyscott was gone. So, the next that I could think of was [livejournal.com profile] suzyscottdotcom  – and that was availbile, which was a good start! You can have a look on SuzyScott.com and find out a little more about me. Beware, there will be buses!

So, why the interest in buses? Never been able to find out why. My father was a baker (when he was able to work) but he did do two weeks as a bus conductor with Dundee Corporation. We didn't have a car, so went everywhere by bus. I get the impression that I must have read a service change notice during a journey, gone in for the new timetable, and subsequently... it went from there.

The picture in my current default icon is myself on the right, with Roary The Tiger on the left. He's the Tiger Line company mascot, and very popular with passengers!
