Guess I’m not exactly Mr. Perfect…

Well, MSN Living passes on the results of a poll by Austin Reed (upscale UK clothier); I got the link from somewhere and curiosity, in a morbid way, got the better of me.  So, I clicked….and got miserable.  Silly me – I should stick to politics.

  1. I’ d miss this even if I could stop hunching over a keyboard
  2. Ha!  Many years and many pounds ago…maybe
  3. Nope
  4. Blue, and the length varies with my procrastination tendencies
  5. When I had to visit my clients in the real world, yeah, I did.
  6. Mt. Dew a reasonable substitute?
  7. YAY!  I finally is one!
  8. Nope – Rick Santorum comes close though…
  9. For what?
  10. See #5.  Now?  I could care less.
  11. Have one – 2 for 11!
  12. OK, I beat this – 3 for 12.
  13. ONLY when I know what I want, where it is, and I can spend the absolute minimal time getting it and getting home.  Oh wait, that’s not the definition preferred by many women, who, you know, like doing this activity.
  14. Prime Rib and chili dogs – sometimes at the same time!  4 for 14.  Am I in trouble?
  15. Used to have a large handlebar mustache…lost that when I started dating TMEW.  First time I shaved it off, she sternly told me to knock off the stupid stuff.  The second time, when the Youngest was, well, young….he ran away from me crying and screaming.  Stupidly, I tried it about four years ago….TMEW repeated her admonition – I think I’ve learned this lesson now.  No, I flunk this one
  16. Er, no.
  17. Nope!  Besides, didn’t they all get cancelled a few years ago?
  18. Patriots! 5 for 18…not looking good for a passing grade
  19. Saab…miss the Suburban
  20. Finally, I’m an overachiever here. 6 for 20.
  21. Yes. Gee, two in a row!
  22. Uh-oh…3 in a row…am I becoming a UK dandy?
  23. I’m not sure that “sensitive” is the word…..”fearful” could describe (ONLY KIDDING!)
  24. After 32 years of being married to TMEW, I have realized that being able to say it when I’m NOT feeling that love is a VERY good attribute to have.
  25. Are flipping crazy?
  26. Have never understood why a man would not.  Wished I’da gotten my private pilot’s though…9 for 26.
  27. Able to….used to be MUCH better, but I pass this test question. 10 for….why am I kidding myself.
  28. I’m betting it would be a bit wobbly at first.
  29. 10-4
  30. No
