If vampires can’t see their reflections, why is their hair always so neat?
Because they would be very cross if it was messy. Have you ever seen a bat with a bad hairdo, I think not.
If a kid refuses to sleep during nap time, are they guilty of resisting a rest?
How many years has A Guy Called Bloke been waiting to squeeze that joke into his blog. The kid could apply for Legal Sleep Aid in the U.K.
If they weren’t called grapes and you had the opportunity to rename them, what would you call them?
Has to be five. Going into a shop and asking for a bunch of fives might liven up the weekly shopping trip.
If the grass wasn’t green what colour would you make it?
Need to keep Tom Jones happy by not ruining the ‘Green, Green Grass of Home’ too much. So what rhymes with Green.
Caffeine, Gangrene, Aquamarine, Tangerine.
Has your imaginary friend ever had an imaginary friend, or just you?
I have always loved the old James Stewart movie, Harvey. I remember one night dreaming that I had 2 imaginary Harvey rabbits. But they couldn’t see each other. Bizarre…
So, dance in the rain, wallow in the mud or naked angel in the snow?
Has to be naked angel in the snow. Several years ago I was climbing with a few college friends in a very snowy Torridon. On the way down (and heading to the pub) we decided to make snow angels in a virgin bit of snow. Being a bit of a prat I decided to take it one stage further and go for the full NAKED naked snow angel. Unfortunately because of the laughter we didn’t hear the climbing group coming in the other direction. I had to just lie down and think of England as a group of about 15 climbers walked slowly past. Given how cold it was – I suspect they didn’t see much.
Can you describe your blog to me without using the letters i and e?
*ts a b*t sh*t*
What are you afraid of becoming?
Petrified of turning into either Michael Gove or Jacob Rees-Mogg. Two beautiful and completely selfless U.K. Politicians. They are just loathsome….
8 Random Thoughts About Myself
I once got sent off in a football match for throwing a snowball at the referee
Once in Germany I ordered a green salad and beer in perfect German. Maybe not perfect. Had to eat a meat platter and green tea.
Years ago I was driving back from a days climbing. It was midnight and I pulled over to take a pee. Parked up in the middle of nowhere. Halfway through my pee a huge convoy of huge vehicles drove past with an army escort. No lights on the vehicles. I think it was a convoy of Cruise Nuclear Missiles. Or a late night emergency delivery of pizzas to a secret army camp.
Once got a smile from the tennis star Ana Ivanovic in Gstaad. It might have in practice been a bit of indigestion on Ana’s part.
Once tried to eat the worlds hottest curry and failed badly.
I can’t count past 7
