100 Questions & 100 Answers Tag

Ya know, I have to be completely honest here – when I first saw a post with the tag of ‘100 Questions‘, I immediate thoughts where ‘Agh holy fuckin Jayzuz, you’re joking me?!

But after reading a few I have to say I was wrong. They’re pretty funny – and assuming everyone’s not shitting through asses – very honest!

Turns out, I’ve read a few at this stage with my favourites being Alan from OMG It’s a Girl, Benny from Daddy Poppins & Clare from The Tully Tales – who actually tagged me to join in – take a few mins to jump over to their sites and have a peek (at all their posts!) – but only after you read mine first of course 🙂 !

So here ye go. Open & honest – it’s my 100 Q&A’s – enjoy 🙂

Make sure you check who I’ve tagged at the bottom too. Cheers.

THE BASICS

1. What’s your name?

Alain ‘Ross’ William Good – the full name on my birth cert. But since day 1, I’ve been Ross and always will be. WTF Parents? Just put Ross first yeah?!!!!

2. Any nicknames or aliases?

Yeah I’ve a few actually.

Goodie / Rozzzz / Stirfry / Rossy / Rosco / Wolf / Wolverenium / (& more recently) The Stented Wan !!!!

3. Your gender?

Male

4. Your star sign?

Gemini

5. How old are you?

39 – turning 40 in June !!!!!

6. Your relationship status?

Married

7. Any children?

Yep – my 2 amazing girls – the ‘Nips’

8. Any pets?

Noodles – the shaggy ‘Ttoodle’

9. Any tattoos or piercings?

Nope (gonna get two tattoos soon though)

10. What do you like about yourself?

I’m very personable, I get on with practically everybody I meet/know. I also try to avoid any shite/head wrecking crap which drains the life & energy unnecessarily out of you – life’s too short that that buzz.

11. What do you dislike about yourself?

I’m an emotional dude. Took me years to be cool with it as I always tried to act like I didn’t give a fuck about X/Y/Z that wasn’t ‘manly‘ etc (to be ‘cool & the gang‘ bullshit). Then early 30’s I realised ‘Hey ya know what, fuck this, that’s actually made me sad/upset etc and ya know what? I’m cool with that. If anyone doesn’t like it, tough shit paddy, I am what I am’. 

12. Righty or lefty?

Both actually. Ambidextrous – ish. I can’t use each hand 100% equally, but I can switch between each depending on what I’m doing. E.g. I’ll can write with both. Right is my natural & my left is not as neat or fluid but I can do it. Or when I play pool/snooker, I’m 100% left handed for general play but when I use the rest, I use my right. In football I have more power & accuracy with my right but I can swing in a peach of a curling cross with my left. (Agh hum, when I played football……..which as it turns out was feckin years ago – true story but)!!!

LASTS

Pint of Smithwicks Shandy  – I’m writing this post in a pub on me own but I’ve the car so it’s my ‘sensible’ option.

40 Have you ever been attracted to someone that isn’t the gender you usually find attractive?

Haven’t actually. I can see when a bloke is good looking but that’s it. I’d just think ‘Jayzus, he’s good looking, can act or sing or both and is married to X – fucker has no luck?‘ !!!!! Although when I was in Thailand, I did see some amazingly beautiful ‘women‘ who as it turned out were not ‘all‘ women hahahaha – shivers, cold sweat and walking fast in the opposite direction happened very fast 🙂 !!!!

41. Have you ever done something you regret?

Not saying I regret it, but I defo wouldn’t do some of the stupid things I did or said from when I was younger.

42. Have you ever had a threesome?

Unfortunately no – but I ain’t dead yet hehe 🙂

43. Have you ever embarrassed yourself in public?

Yeah probably. Actually, absolutely. Just gonna giggle to meself here about them!!

44. Have you ever misjudged someone?

I did when I was younger. Young & stupid ya know.

MY BELIEFS AND OPINIONS

45. Do you believe in God?

Yes I do. But I’m note sure exactly what it means because I am a non-practising believer in God. I don’t go to Church/Mass. But I do like to think there is a greater being out there somewhere.

46. Do you believe in yourself?

100%.

However, this was not always the case. I suffered depression twice in my mid twenties, nasty times albeit thankfully never life altering but serious none the less. I’m hitting 40 in June and I’m delighted to say I’m 100% comfortable in my own skin & have never been happier #Jackpot 🙂

47. Do you believe in Santa Claus?

Well I’m certainly doing my best to look like him!!!! But of course I do……for my kids!

48. Do you believe in ghosts?

Nadda

49. Do you believe in aliens?

Nope

50. Do you believe in miracles?

Not really – but part of me really wants to.

51. Do you believe in the power of positive thinking?

I genuinely do. I don’t always get it right but yeah I do. I meditate for 10 mins each day. It’s the shiznet.

52. Do you believe in love at first sight?

Can’t do. Do I believe in lust/attraction/hornyness at first sight? Absolutely I do.

Before Tinder (etc) made it possible to find a date based purely on facial looks / job title / spotify playlist attraction – yes, I’ve been on it for a lookski, who at this stage hasn’t?! – But are you seriously telling me, the person you’re with right now didn’t start off with you catching their eye or body shape first? Come on. It’s in-built in us all. We have eyes. Nobody walks into a room and looks at someone & thinks ‘I bet ya they have an a wicked personality‘ (or add your own here) but (initially) eyes read looks & body language, not traits. That follows getting to know their personality when looks become only skin deep.

Maybe Tinder has gotten it right ha?! 

53. Can money make you happy?

It can fucking help!

54. Would you describe yourself as a feminist?

Absolutely – sure I only wrote this a while ago > ‘I’m coming out…….as a Feminist

55. Are you pro-life or pro-choice?

Pro-choice – always.

56. Do you have strong political beliefs?

Generally I don’t – actually now that I think about it, I do have one.

To me politicians are all cut from the same cloth albeit dressed up in different party colours. All promising you the sun, moon & stars and delivering absolutely SFA on the vast majority of their bullshit.

That said, there are a few good ones – or who seem to be better – and the truth is we all need someone to do the job right? So fair play to the real ones who are pure to their belief’s and to their voters needs.

This mindset has grown on me as I’ve gotten older. When I was younger it didn’t register one bit. But as you get older, politics is like a vortex. It will suck you in to a certain extent so you’ll have a chat & express your opinion but if someone comes in all heavy handed about the topic ABC, I’ll chat for a bit and then find an excuse to get the fuck outta there fairly lively!

57. Do you have strong religious beliefs?

Not really. I believe in ‘God’ – but I don’t practise or preach to anyone. I get it from my Mum (deceased) from when I way young. She was Catholic and we are COI. Yet we hardly ever went to Church as kids. In fact, I went to more Mass services as a kid so I’m kind of a hybrid – without ever going to either being honest!

58. What do you think the most important thing you can give a child is?

Well everything of course! But let’s be specific and narrow it down. Myself & The Missus want to help develop a naturally high self belief & inner confidence. This will help the girls to be whatever they choose to be, when they choose to be it. And we’ll support them and their choices with an open mind and in a non judgemental way.

RIGHT NOW

59. Are you eating anything right now?

Not at this moment. Will have smoked salmon & poached eggs on toast in a bit though.

A FEW RANDOM QUESTIONS TO FINISH

89. Do you wish you could change your past?

Absolutely not.

90. What’s your dream job?

Working for myself – making money doing a job I love as it ceases to be a ‘job’ and becomes something you love doing which makes you money as a bonus.

91. What’s your guilty pleasure?

Listening to Lyric FM when I want the full chill.

92. What are you afraid of?

Death

93. What was the first thing you wanted to be when you grew up?

A professional snooker player or a Formula 1 driver.

94. If you could have any super power, what would it be? 

I’d be an ‘absorber‘ of other super powers. Once they are close to me, I’d be able to mimic their powers. A ‘shape-shifter‘ of sorts if ya get me.

Has anyone ever watched ‘Heroes‘? Remember Peter Petrelli? I’d be like him.

95. If you could change anything about your life what would it be?

I would have been clever with my money when I was younger. I was on a serious wage for a good while yet I waxed the lot. No real savings to speak of so yeah, I’ve have saved more I guess.

96. Would you want immortality?

For a period of my own choosing – yeah I’d take a rattle at it, why not?! But it would get a bit lonely after a while wouldn’t it? Ya know, everyone you know & love would be gonzo and then what? It becomes Groundhog Day and I’d just end up doing exactly what Bill Murray did once he realised he was living the same day over & over. At least that way, you’d knock a bit of crack out of immortality 🙂

Richard Pryor – he was one funny crazy ass dude.

As happy as a filthy oul pig rolling around in his own piggy poo poo.

Put the acid back man 🙂
