Yes. I always am in the winter, it gets more and more difficult each year, but I'm alright once the days start getting longer. Driving or getting out into the wilds are the only things that snap me out of it.

30.) Did you cry today?
No, I've got something in my eye.

31.) What was the last thing you said aloud?
"No! Off the keyboarddddddd.....Now look what you've done. Don't lick my face when you've been licking your bum. Well yes, I know you're cute. Come on then, lets see if we can find anything in the fridge for you".....Max the cat.

32.) What car do you drive and what bumper stickers do you have on it?
Luckily I get to borrow/drive lots of fantastic cars. In contrast my own car is an old Nissan Micra with a rack for carrying kayaks. No stickers, I have to keep a low profile.

This cute lady asked and who was I to disappoint?

So now I have to tag some victims and, tell you why.

photowannabe said...

Those were great replies. I like your style. Have a super day after 10AM...

Floderten said...

Oooh I was secretly hoping you'd tag me!! :D Now I have something to do tonight!

... I really am not that sad. I have .. TV! And knitting!

So okay, I'm not sad, I'm old. ;)

Your answers were great btw - true Barkfoot spirit! :D

Stephanie, Single and Blogging said...

Oh lordy that is a lot of questions! Maybe I need to get drunk and THEN attempt it. My answers might be more fun!

JLee said...

Very interesting! It's cool that you have a red front door...

Elisa, Jarrod, Thomas & Zoe said...

Rasberry ripple is my fave too.

Ah yes the Italian job I remember the gang watching that a few times!

Anrosh said...

I have never read better "Tagged" questions.

Madwag said...

I am going to pretend that you tagged me... I know you wanted to but forgot, that is okay. Winter gets me down too :o( I take a antidepressant and I go to the gym and go do nature stuff w/ my family etc.... if I don't I get really grumpy and cry all the time. I just told Julian that we need to get a kayak for us...that would be loads of fun.

Lavender said...

Winter sucks, even if you move to Australia. (The winter days are just as short, AND the summer days are so hot you stay in the house all day so you think its dark ALL the time) LOL Im laughing CAUSE ITS TRUE!
Raspberry Ripple sounds divine...from your answers Ive deduced that you are either a Policeman or a Parking Valet....Am I right? :)

barkfoot said...

Madwag - Didn't I tag you?? You see I said I had a mind like a seive. Consider yourself tagged with honour.
Lavender - You're not the first to guess I was a policeman, but no, I'm no good at towing the line. I don't do just one thing for a living, so you would be hard pressed to guess them all!

secret agent said...

alright cute Brit.......
your short term memory issue strikes again.
I'm ignoring my blog for a bit so It'll be a while til I get around to this meme.

This morning I went outside and there were 14 buzzards on my roof...with wings spread warming themselves I think.
They're cool.
I once laid down on the ground very still to see if they'd think I was dead and I could get a real close up.
I couldn't trick them though. It's funny cuz we have so many, probably 60 or so that won't leave. They are social, they like to watch me ride... or maybe they're waiting for me to fall over? I don't know, but I caught them playing with a horse ball... walking and kicking it around.


now, your answers are quite funny and clever... and in my mopey pissy state right now, I did have a few good laughs.


maia said...

Wandered here from Secret Agent's blog...thoroughly enjoyed your meme.
Love you kayak images too...makes me feel peaceful just looking at them.

ps - may I ask, WHERE did you find your camping hammock?? My dad had one similar when I was a kid - he had it from camping in the jungle in Brazil - I haven't seen one since and have been longing for one...have not been able to find.

barkfoot said...

Maia - The small super lightweight jungle hammock (without a flysheet) is from a shop now closed and I have been unable to trace the manufacturers. The larger hammock is a Hennessey Exlporer. It is over 9 foot long, I'm over 6 foot and can get a good nights kip and fit a rucksack in there with me. I thoroughly recommend them. There is a wide range, all come with integral mosquito net and flysheet. When I'm out kayaking I can tie it up from overhanging branches, and never have to leave the water...just remember where you are come morning! Try

barkfoot said...

Secret Agent - I've only just discovered that what we call buzzards in the UK are different to the USA. Buzzards here are loners, large eagle type birds. Yours are more sort of a vulture, I think? Very intelligent and inquisitive. I'd love to video those. We need to kit you out with a camcorder, you could get some really cool shots.
Cheer up you...e-mail me if you need a chat.
