Fashionably late?

Unread postby Marmaduke » 23 December 2012, 18:18

I've never done one of these before;

First name: Joe
Nickname(s)?: Mr Marm A. Duke, esq
Age: 24
Orientation: Gay
Where you live: Bedfordshire, UK
What you do (job, schooling, etc.): I am a conflict resolution specialist and legal consultant.
Dream Job: International Man of Mystery
Religion (or lack thereof): Lack thereof
Political philosophy: Tend to fall right of centre
Interests and hobbies: i like reading, music, cars, bitches and bling. Not so much bitches and bling these days.
Drinking, drugs or sobriety?: I don't mind a drink, only mugs do drugs.
Special talents: I'm quite good with my hands I suppose, in that way and the DIY making stuff way.
Pet peeves: People who can't seem to communicate without touching me.
Personal hero: Sir Ranulph Fiennes
Favourite real-life homosexual: Wanda Sykes
Favourite movies: The Usual Suspects, Shutter Island, Gran Torino
Favourite TV shows: I mainly watch stuff on the Discovery channel but nothing in particular springs to mind.
Favourite music: At the moment, I'm really liking The Temper Trap's self titled album
Favourite books: The Pillars of the Earth, Les Miserables, The Count of Monte Cristo, The Great Gatsby
Favourite food: You can't go wrong with soup
A quote to live by: "When life gives you lemons, don't make lemonade. Make life take the lemons back! Get mad! I don't want your damn lemons, what am I supposed to do with these? Demand to see life's manager! Make life rue the day it thought it could give you lemons! Do you know who I am? I'm the man who's gonna burn your house down! With the lemons! I'm gonna get my engineers to invent a combustible lemon that burns your house down" - Cave Johnson


I gave quite a bit of thought to dropping Marmaduke forever and just registering as Joe, but then I realised that's just going to let some n00b trade on my good name and I'll be damned if i let that happen.

I don't know if this new format will mean that I'll pick up to old posting rates, but it should at least bring an end to my annual 3 month leaving forever stints.

Hwllo Marmraduke your picture makes me smile. I can communicate without touching you because there is a screen, so we will do fine.

Luv,

It has been drawn to my attention that this questionnaire is no longer reflective of the intricate tapestry that is me.

Religion (or lack thereof): Lack thereof
Political philosophy: I’m very centrist these days
Interests and hobbies: In my 30s, I’ve developed a fervent interest in watches and watchmaking. I’m a keen consumer of photography. Looking to pick it up more again this year as a hobby. I’m a fairly keen gym-goer these days.
Drinking, drugs or sobriety?: I rarely drink anymore, I don’t do drugs.
Special talents: I can sing the major generals song from Pirates of Penzance super fast
Pet peeves: People who repeat themselves as if to suggest they don’t think I can understand them

So, sugar. :P

Kellogg's "Crunchy Nut cereal" (which should not be legally allowed to be called that) has 6x as much sugar in it as it does nuts, even if we count peanuts. While delicious, it is not a breakfast. It's a sweet/candy. :oface:

There are healthier options. Consider soup.

It’s my Saturday morning breakfast. It’s basically my weekly treat breakfast. A large bowl of crunchy nut, probably 3-4 times the size of the recommended serving, with whole milk. Candy or otherwise, it’s a delicious way to start the day.

And I only let myself have mince pies in December, they’re actually fairly hard to buy for the rest of the year.

Oh, I know it is :P I used to do that every day, before I realised what an insane amount of sugar is in it and that I was probably going to give myself diabetes like my dad.

You should at least mix in some generic All-Bran (like Tesco's "High Fibre" cereal) to reduce the massiveness of the blood-sugar spike you're giving yourself every week. :)

You are omitting some crucial details. :oface:

Those were hardly normal waffles. You filled them to the brim with protein powder, admit it! The date syrup etc. was just enough to make them unobjectionable. I thoroughly deserved the heart-healthy mint dark-chocolate bar I had for dessert.
