Survey Says!..

I love being productive at work, filling out email forwarded surveys things. The getting-to-know-you kind of deep and probing insight into the inner workings of my psyche kind of surveys. It's a fun distraction from the otherwise spirit-crushing monotony of the daily grind.

1. What time did you get up this morning?
Seven am to commute for an hour and arrive at work to realise that I didn't start until 11 today. That was a fun realisation for me.

2. Diamonds or pearls?
Can I have Miu Miu instead?

3. What was the last film you saw at the cinema?
Tan Lines - An Aussie gay surf teen sex romp. Five wombats out of five for best write-up of the festival. 2½ baby-eating dingos for the somewhat confused/confusing film itself.

4. What is your favourite TV show?
I too don’t watch too much TV these days. Simpsons is of course a classic, but I live for The Amazing Race. God, I would do anything to be on that show — It was literally made for me. Really, the show should be call The Amazing Daniel McKinnon Race!

5. What do you usually have for breakfast?
Always variation on a theme: bagel/english muffin or granola/cereal

6. Favourite Take Away
I have Tokyo to thank for my new-found love of shawarma (Which is sold by Turkish vendor trucks there).

8. What food do you dislike?
I passionately and intensely hate bœuf bourginion. Anything else I dislike pales in comparison to how much I revile that disgusting french beef stew with red wine.

9. What is your favourite CD at the moment?
I don't know about CD, but my favourite song for the past few months has been Joan Baez' "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down."

10. What kind of car do you drive?
When I am king of the universe, I will make private car ownership illegal and replace all roads with train tracks! I hate cars.

11. Favourite sandwich?
I'm generally not a sandwich aficionado, though I guess anything that's made with good crusty french bread is fine.

12. What characteristic do you despise?
Last season’s shoes. Haha, no really I detest conservatism

13. Favourite item of clothing?
Watches. Guys have so few opportunities to accessorise. Also ties, though I'm sad I don’t have the chance to wear them anymore.

14. If you could go anywhere in the world on vacation?
I’ll permit myself a list;
North America: Cuba
South America: Brazil (esp Rio)
Europe: Spain
Africa: Morocco
Asia: Bhutan
Oceania: French Polynesia

15. What colour is your bathroom? (Not sure what we're supposed to learn about each other from this question, but I'm sure the CIA has something in mind when they put together these surveys)
White tile with black tile trim and grey walls

16. Favourite brand of clothing?
Paul Smith has a line of street clothes that's available only in japan which I like. D Squared has nice stuff too.

17. Where would you retire to?
Warm places with hot, slutty youths to show an old man a good time (Mérida perhaps?)

18. What was your most memorable birthday?
While there was one birthday we went to a roller-rink in Kingston which was pretty fun, nothing really even comes close to this most recent Tiki Hula Luau. Amazing!

19. What is your favourite ice cream flavour?
Rocky road. Although Baskin Robbins had a flavour in Japan called ‘Box of Chocolates’ that had mini chocolates in it. I would mainline that stuff into an artery if I could.

20. Furthest place you are sending this? (Or in this case, most distant blog reader)
I guess some people in Australia might be reading this.

21. Who do you least expect to send respond to this?
Prince Rainer the III of Monaco

22. Person you expect to send it back first?
People with silly office jobs like me

23. When is your birthday?
January 13

24. Are you a morning person or a night person?
Night person, definitely.

25. What is your shoe size? (Surely the CIA already has this info on file for me – very sloppy to have to ask again)

26. Pets?

27. Any new and exciting news?
Well, for those of you who've been living under a rock for the last few weeks, I'm moving to gay Paree in the autumn.

28. What did you want to be when you were little?
A flight attendant –No wonder my parents weren’t surprised I was gay!

29. How are you today?
So gay! Thank gawd

30. What is your favourite chocolate?
I love chocolates from a box of chocolates —every one’s a mini-surprise— I don't really have a favourite chocolate bar.

31. What is your favourite flower?
Jasmine. (but not Princess Jasmine from Aladdin –stupid stuck-up bitch)

It's funny how much you really do learn about a person (that you haven't seen in AGES) reading such a list. :) Hope all is well!
