Five late night ones

Postby Nit Picking Prick » 01 Aug 2017, 04:11

When you go to the cinema, do you buy popcorn? What kind? If not, why not?

Do you ever brush your tongue with your toothbrush?

When was the last time you saw kids playing hopscotch?

Whereabouts do you situate yourself to cut your toenails?

Most of the time. A medium popcorn with butter.

Do you ever brush your tongue with your toothbrush?

Yeah, supposedly that's where most of the germs come from.

When was the last time you saw kids playing hopscotch?

No idea

Whereabouts do you situate yourself to cut your toenails?

Rim of the toilet

-5. I have a tough time putting up new-fangled tents and they almost put up themselves.

When you go to the cinema, do you buy popcorn? What kind? If not, why not?

No. I fucking hate people eating at the cinema.

Do you ever brush your tongue with your toothbrush?

No but I do use interdental brushes.

When was the last time you saw kids playing hopscotch?

A few days ago. My kids play it.

Whereabouts do you situate yourself to cut your toenails?

Bathroom- foot over toilet.

Occasionally, and if I do I go for salted. More often than not, though, if I bother with a snack at all it'll be three scoops of Ben & Jerry's.

Do you ever brush your tongue with your toothbrush?
I have done, but I now have a tongue scraper.

When was the last time you saw kids playing hopscotch?
I was talking about that with Mrs The Driver the other day. A good few years back it still wasn't uncommon to see the remains of a chalked out grid on the pavement. I don't recall having seen kids playing it this century.

Whereabouts do you situate yourself to cut your toenails?
Edge of the bath, or in my (home) office.

Without any training on how to do it I guess about a 3, but with a quick tutorial or a manual, the right tools and a glamorous assistant I could make a decent fist of it, I reckon. Maybe a 6 or 7.

Don't go to the cinema any more. When I did, I never ate anything, because it was poor quality and expensive.
I like popcorn, though, and make my own, and have been known to watch movies on TV with a big bowl: preferred toppings melted butter with either salt or maple syrup

Do you ever brush your tongue with your toothbrush?
No. I get plenty of B vitamins – more than a little bemused to find that everyone else apparently scours their tongue. I never have.

When was the last time you saw kids playing hopscotch?
Last century can't say when. Mind you, I don't really notice children

Whereabouts do you situate yourself to cut your toenails?
On the bed or the edge of the bath

If I take the kids they usually like to get some, the salted kind. We don't normally bother if it's just me & Cat going. I'm not sure why, as I do like it. I tend to always take Sports Mix if I've got the choice though.


Do you ever brush your tongue with your toothbrush?

Hell yes.


When was the last time you saw kids playing hopscotch?

Probably my own kids, maybe ten years ago or more.


Whereabouts do you situate yourself to cut your toenails?

Bathroom, foot on the side of the bath.

10 I reckon. We used to make them often when I was a kid. With manual work like that my mind is very meticulous, probably neurotically precise actually. So I'd make a good job of it. I'd enjoy it too.

No, never. It's a total rip off plus I don't eat when I'm watching a film at the cinema anyway. Personally it annoys me when people are crunching on pop corn. I think it's odd that such a food has become ubiquitous with the cinema. If I was to buy popcorn though I'd nearly always go for toffee or heavily salted butter

Do you ever brush your tongue with your toothbrush?

Yes

When was the last time you saw kids playing hopscotch?

Not since I was a kid. You never see kids playing footy in the street these days either

Whereabouts do you situate yourself to cut your toenails?

On the edge of the couch

When you go to the cinema, do you buy popcorn? What kind? If not, why not? - Yes. With 'Buttery Topping'.

Do you ever brush your tongue with your toothbrush? - Only when it's feeling particularly furry.

When was the last time you saw kids playing hopscotch? - Ages ago, but someone had marked up the sidewalk down the street from us for it last summer.

Whereabouts do you situate yourself to cut your toenails? - On the edge of the bed or in a chair in the backyard if the weather's nice or in my home office with the bright light on if it's dark.

On a scale of 1-10, with 1 being the lowest score and 10 the highest, what rating would you give yourself of the likely end result if you were forced to make an igloo? - Using a saw to cut blocks of ice, and all that? I reckon I'd be about a 7 or an 8. Most likely there'd be at least one catastrophic collapse before I got it right.

Does it really make that much noise?

My ex worked in a movie theater in high school and she told me the mark up on concessions is where theaters make their money.

I don't go to the movies that often and I factor in the convenience factor getting it the theater. Plus, some food is just better if you buy it there, like a hot dog at a baseball game.

I love the way that toenail cutting is clearly a ritual everyone looks forward to. You can hear the self satisfied exhalation in these answers :D

Any noise that isn't the movie is undesirable to me. Be it sweetie wrappers, crisp packets, popcorn, people chatting, whatever. It bothers me less if I'm watching, say, an Avengers movie mind but still....

Noise at the movies is unacceptable. And yet, I love popcorn with that butter substance shit on it. So I get popcorn about half the time and try to eat it before the picture starts and then only during loud passages.

No I take my own food. Quite often I'll join in the movie with themed food. We saw Dunkirk last weekend and I took corned beef and hard tack biscuits. I had a pot noodle and some space dust for Blade Runner.

Do you ever brush your tongue with your toothbrush?
It usually warrants a good quality fine emery paper.

When was the last time you saw kids playing hopscotch?
Last week. I berated then for clogging up the road and said they'd be better served playing Grand Theft Auto to progress their career options.

Whereabouts do you situate yourself to cut your toenails?
In the kitchen. I'm in favour of surprise ingredients.

Almost always. Salted.

Certainly.

Probably when I was a kid.

Sitting on the edge of the bed with my knee drawn up.

Well, I have two kids and have had to go to lots of movies where audience noise is de rigeur. And I go to lots of movies with my 14 year-old. Planet of the Apes movies don't really suffer with outside ambient noise.

Yes, buttered.

Do you ever brush your tongue with your toothbrush?
Everyday.

When was the last time you saw kids playing hopscotch?
I saw an hopscotch or maybe it was a potsie board chalked on the sidewalk the other day but no kids were around.

Whereabouts do you situate yourself to cut your toenails?
On my butt on the bathroom floor.

I would pile up the snow and then dig out an igloo ... I've done this in our front yard when I was about 9 years old and it worked really well, I had a front and a back door. So, it would be a ten.

But if I had to cut out large blocks of ice and pile them on top of each other ... maybe a two or three.

I go to the cinema to watch a film not eat, even at home I just sit and watch.
I broke this rule for LOTR TFOTR and bought a cup of chili peanuts and then vomited like a dog for hours afterwards about 30 mins after I had got home.
I learnt my lesson

My dental hygenists asks me that, but cannot give me a decent explanation as to why, my tongue seems to get along OK without it.
