Doughgirl....First I love your blog but I must admonish you.....You never asked him the most important question of all. Boxers or Briefs????

Faith said...

Gotta love a man who prefers (to give) diamonds. Mmmm...and cheese and tomato sandwiches...

Are you married by chance? Because, you know, I'm available...

Kimberly said...

I must agree...boxers or briefs is a very important question indeed!

Just wanted to say that I've looked through all of your pictures from the beginning, and I love your take on America and the pictures you took. I laughed about the part on the 18 wheelers(lorries) climbing up your arse till you move :)

And your right, you know when your flying over England, everything is much prettier.

Don't judge us all on the south, they can be a weird bunch of folks! Honest!

doughgirl said...

Dionysius, some things must be kept to the imagination ya know..lol

Faith you crack me up

Perfect - sorry to have taken over the comment section fo your blog. Thanks for playing.

You know that I now know more than just a little more. You're answers (the key ones) told enough.

Anywhere without people is a great answer,I chose 6 ft under cus like you the darker the better.

I agree with DVD's on the big tv as well, so much more personal I think.

Eyes are so important, they tell the whole story. There are very few people I have met that can lie with their eyes. They hold the deepest darkest secrets of the soul.

Perfect Virgo said...

Dionysius - since you ask, the answer begins with 'B.' There that's cleared that up!

Faith - You picked out sandwiches and diamonds, revealing... Oh, and I hear you loud and clear, damn that Atlantic Ocean! I'm married yes, but I've left lots of little clues littered about the place...

Kimberly - pictures people take tell a lot about the opinions they form of a place, don't you think? Glad you liked them. Fields in the UK are seldom rectangular and all roads are twisty, its so alear from the air.

I wear either, sometimes, when the mood takes me! America being so big is why I've not yet found time to venture further inland, but I'll get around to it, be sure!

Doughgirl - take the comments over girl, feel free!! I knew you would latch onto the key answers, you're a perceptive soul...

Somewhere dark and free of people says a lot about us I think. Wanting to hide from reality and work out our troubles alone

I have a ton of DVDs and I love to turn off the lights and watch in private. No youngsters kicking the back of your seat or throwing popcorn!

Eyes are quite simply top of my list. They are the most expressive feature on the face and can mesmerise you with their depth and intensity. You are so right, eyes can never lie they give you away every time. (Window to the soul.)

I enjoyed the game, thanks!

JJ said...

OMG...I'm so happy you did the tag thing. :) I'm grateful for your blog and you.

recoveryroad said...

I love your approximately accurate apporoximations....


Mere Existence said...

I notice tits first... except on guys - I don't notice guys.

Perfect Virgo said...

JJ - I'm quite a private person really but heck, I think I can share that sort of detail with you. And I'm grateful for interested readers, thank you.

Kenny - as a virgo I am troubled by approximations I much prefer precision. I love sarcasm too hence the apparent contradiction in my responses!

Rand - I am an admirer of all parts of the female anatomy, so I can well understand your excitement (not for guys of course!) but eyes are full of meaning and intent.. Sorry way too deep I should lighten up! OK but don't get me started on legs...

Trudging said...

You have a great site here. Thanks for stopping by my site.

doughgirl said...

Ok lets hear about the legs..lol

Perfect Virgo said...

Trudging - you are most welcome!

Doughgirl - eyes are fabulous. But if I were to be pressed on physical attributes then legs are next. Where do I start (at the bottom and work up, or from the bottom amd work down?!!!) Enough said I think!

RuKsaK said...

Those cheese and tomato sandwiches better be toasted man.

Perfect Virgo said...

Ruk - just Hovis wholemeal bread and Anchor butter! Though I could try toasting them...

transience said...

i so love knowing a bit more about you. the little snippets of you are quite intriguing.

Perfect Virgo said...

T - our blogs probably reveal more detail about us than we realise, no matter how anonymous we might try to be.

These games permit an unusually honest view, albeit through narrow slits. Great fun to answer and thank you for reading.

finnegan said...

Funny how none of my answers to these questions align with yours; yet we are able to connect in so many ways.

What's under my bed? Why, my alter ego---I murdered him Jack The Ripper style and buried him under the floorboards due to years of mental harrassment. ;-O

Perfect Virgo said...

Finnegan - that's very interesting. I was having a discussion about friendship recently and we came to the conclusion that getting along has as much to do with differences as with similarities.

Either that or the questions were rigged!

Your alter ego reduced to a Ripper victim under the bed, eh! I can see the headlines when the victim is discovered: "Provocation results in surrogate suicide."

Jen said...

I'm with you, I don't watch much TV anymore. But then I'm not blogging much, either!

Perfect Virgo said...

Jen - TV very selectively is OK, I just hate the self-congratulatory pseudo famous 'reality' arses that we are plagued with these days. Give me music, my guitar and my PC any day.

You'll be back blogging when the mood takes you, you've got too many good things to say to stay quiet for long...
