There's a first and last time for everything...

Another ego trip that everyone's doing, and as I'm just a mindless follower:

TEN FIRSTS
First Best Friend: Mostyn Brown (neighbour). Lost contact when my family moved when I was six. He had a great cowboy outfit. :-)
First Screen Name: Organon.
First Pet: Tinky. Family cat.
First Piercing: Nope. Too fashionable.
First Crush: Um, when I was five, a girl called Lynette Crookes.
First CD Bought: First CD was Television's 'Marquee Moon.' But I was alive when records were the thing: first record was Hello Sailor's 'Gutter Black.'
First Car: MG Midget with a Ford 1600cc engine. (Okay, okay.)
First True Love: DJ
First Stuffed Animal: A stuffed elephant, I think.
First Words: Apparently it was 'bus.'
First Game System: Never had one.

NINE LASTS
Last Alcoholic: A Stella, last night
Last Movie Seen: 'Meistersingers of Nuremburg,' with Donald McIntyre. (Well, it is a film, right?)
Last CD Played: Charlie Christian, 'Good Enough to Keep.'
Last Bubble Bath: ???
Last Time You Cried: 24 August, 2005. Funeral.
Last Time You Laughed: Over beers last night
Last Time You Fell: When hit by a flying trolley in Raglan. Ouch. -/

EIGHT HAVE YOU EVERS
Have You Ever Dated One Of Your Best Friends: Nope. Too much like incest.
Have You Ever Been Arrested: Nope. Harrassed a few times, but never arrested. Rule #1: the policeman is always right.
Have You Ever Been Skinny Dipping: Yup.
Have You Ever Been On TV: Yup.
Have You Ever Regretted A Kiss: Imagine regretting a kiss!
Have You Ever Been Drunk: D'you mean today?.
Have You Ever Slept For 24 Hours Straight: Sure have, after a few all-nighters meeting project deadlines.
Have You Ever Worn the Same Pants for 3 Weeks Straight: Nope; two weeks maybe... ;^)

PC! For crying out loud, ArchiCAD as a favourite thing!

I'm telling you, one day you will discover AutoCAD Architectural Desktop, and the wasted ArchiCAD years will disappear from memory, like a bad dream...

Haha. I prefer Hungarian to torture, Den. If I was to go down the AutoCAD road, it would be on the Revit wagon -- AutoCAD's answer to ArchiCAD. Don't tell me you haven't yet discovered Revit? :-)
