De-lurk here!

I have seen a great idea at 365 to 42's blog, so I hope he doesn't mind that I'm borrowing it.

So all you lurkers out there, i.e. people who visit but don’t leave a comment, I have a little questionnaire for you - and also for the regular commenter's (because you know how nosy I am!) :

1. Who are you and where are you from? (mainly for the lurkers)

2. What will you be doing today?

3. What do you wish you had planned instead?

4. What’s the thing you’re looking forward to most?

1. When on the internet, because of a past very bad experience, I always say I am from a Parallel Universe. (!)

2. Today I have walked the dog in the snow, done some shopping and hand made 15 Christmas cards.

3. No, for a change today actually went as I had planned it!

4. A large glass of chilled white wine while I cook the tea and a gossip with my daughter!

Hey, that was fun, although I kinda did it in the past tense!

I never lurk, lurking and lurkers, freak me out, I always announce my presence!!

3.we did have a plan, and it didnt work! We ended up having a lovely day anyway and are about to go out for dinner for more celebrations.

4.I have a three days ahead on business with other half, but a lot of it is festive fun in a nice hotel so I am looking forward to that, and to the Christmas holidays.

I love the idea of folk who visit but dont comment being lurkers- judging by my counter I get lots of them. I really appreciate comments.

Malcolm Cinnamond said...

I'm Malc, of course, from Westray, Orkney

I'll be feeding and cleaning out the pigs and hens, letting the horses out into the field, then getting inside to carry on rewiring the kitchen.

Trip to the cliffs on the west side of the island to watch the gannets. Then take the dogs for a run on the beach and spend time with the pigs.

Oh heck! Too much choice. Mrs Malc gets back from south next week. I've got tickets for Scotland v Ireland rugby in March. Christmas (really!). Our pork goes into the shops for the first time in January. David Cameron's face when he loses the next election. Tough one.

Wuthering said...

Hey Suburbia!

I often feel like asking my lurkers the same thing! A lot of them are from the same state as myself. So, i figure their interested in me because of the close vicinity or maybe they know me! I do wish they would leave a comment!

Today I'm studying for a detailed Lab exam on Monday. I'm looking forward to working with a Chem tutor during my winter break.

talk to you soon!
