You sound tired... I don't mean to say the post is boring ;) , just the "tone" of it shows that you must need so sleep. Or maybe I focused on the last few sentences, where you tell about your pain...

I get like that in Winter. Or when I don't get to travel. Or when I feel tired and lost. Happens... ;)

That said, it's always good to get to know you more!

NeoAuteur said...

I learned more about you from this meme than the others combined. Anyway, I'm off to bed too. Have a great day tomorrow!

Choc Mint Girl @ Crystal said...

He he...I think each of us should create another blog with all the things 'about ourselves' memes. That could be interesting. ;)

33. OH, good luck, Graham...he he he...

I really hope you had a good rest!! :)

Linda and her Surroundings said...

No: 33. Tell her. Just do it. I have a friend who wished he had told a girl he loved her 26 years ago and when he finally did, it was too late, she was married. What made it harder to bear was that she had felt the same for him 26 years ago but was too shy to say anything.

No:1 I saw Victor Borge in concert years ago - he made me laugh so much.

This has been a good meme to read. Simple questions often reveal a great deal about a person.

Elise said...

You fell over the edge of a quarry? Oh so thats why people always shout out "be careful!" I hope you didn't break anything x

Hi Graham,

No.31...Don't be so down on yourself, you would make a 'great catch' as they say.
Eeee, if I were a little (OK a lot!) younger, you would have to beat me off with a stick!


No.33...I agree with Linda (and her surroundings), life is too short, if you don't get the answer you want, it's not the end of the world (it may seem like it at the time, but it's not!).
Seize the moment, she may feel the same but you will never know unless you speak up.

Graham, just do it! We are all right behind you if it doesn't work out the way you would like, but if it does, then Whooooopeeee for you!!!

You're a real nice guy (with a real sexy voice! Phooor! Quick get that stick!) and deserve to get what you want. Good luck and loads of hugs.

Hello Graham,

This is so cute; I loved reading it :).

Now, my comments:

You are the first guy who said he uses a brush *clap clap clap*.
You cook, somebody will have you for sure lol :).
Why don't you have the courage to tell her? Is she intimidating?...still, I found it cute :).
For the headaches and shoulder: have you tried Reiki?
A man who admits he cries occasionally...Graham, I'd say that you are perfect :).

Great meme!

DO IT! You so have to tell her Graham :). Love is romantic as hell, rejection sucks, but you know what's the worst---missing out. I so vote that you do it, and then tell me how it goes ;). (I'm rooting for you!)

Getty72 said...

Hey Zhu :) You are rather observant. Yes, I am so tired recently. Too many early mornings and late nights stuck in the office. Plus I seem to be plagued with headaches... perhaps I need a holiday ;)

neoauteur, thanks friend! I wish you a great weekend!

Choc, thanks for this meme and thanks for all of your kind comments and awards. They always encourage me to do more :)

Getty72 said...

Linda, Victor Borge was a genius. I never got the opportunity to see him live on stage, but enjoyed watching him on TV. The tribute show was great. Thanks for your words of encouragement... :)

Getty72 said...

Elise, yes that is why people shout out "Be careful!"! Let's put it this way, I didn't break!

Azzitizz, thanks as always. You have a great knack of bringing a smile to my face.

Max, your kind words are truly appreciated. Thanks friend!

Getty72 said...

Dasszle, maybe I eventually will. I'll let ya know :)
