  40. First date ? - A blind date earlier this year with the niece of a friend from work. We got on well enough, but there really wasn't any spark, so it didn't go anywhere.
  41. First kiss ? - Ah, yes I remember it well. At the (rather old) age of 17, with a close friend of 19. In her bedroom with (oddly enough) her little brother playing the SNES (remember those?) in the background. We were trying out seeing each other. Three attempts later and we decided it was never going to work. Which I honestly regret.
  42. First break-up ? - The friend from above. We broke up three times, first time she broke up, "needed space", second time it was I, because she was off flirting with other guys in nightclubs, and third and final time it was kind of mutual.
  43. First job ? - Sweeping up hair in my step Grandad's barbers in Farnham. I hated that job. I worked 8.30-5pm with a half hour break, and got 15. Still my parents gave me a good work ethic, so I took what I could and liked it.
  44. First screen name ? - squelch, still the same! It's been my nickname like forever. But then with a name like Matt Quelch, it would be.

  46. First funeral ? - I didn't go to my great nan's, so that would be my great uncle's. I had no idea what was going on. I hardly knew the guy, and couldn't see the point in the whole thing really.
  47. First prime minister (or president) you voted for ? - I don't agree with what is essentially the current two party system, however people have died for my right to vote, and I can't complain if I don't vote, so I usually go along and vote Lib Dem or Green I utterly refuse to vote Labor or Conservative in the nationals. I would vote Libertarian if there was one, but alas there is not. Perhaps I should start it...
  48. First piercing/tattoo ? - None. I was going to get my eyebrow pierced with my buddy Wayne when I was 16, but thought better of it, because I thought it would stop me getting a job. That'll be my Dad's influence then.
  49. First independent home ? - Uh, I still live with my parents.
  50. First house/flat/apartment ? - Alright, no need to rub it in, so I live with my parents.
  51. First love ? - Hmm, seeing how as I've never been in love I would have to say my purple cushion when I was 6. I loved that damn thing, and my brother nicked it off me, and chucked it in the attic.
  52. First enemy ? - I don't remember his name but he was some generic school bully. He wore green Wellington boots, and got beat up by my big brother when he started pushing me around! Hehe.

Last time was picking up a parcel from the Post Office: I stepped up to the counter, muttered something unintelligible, gave her my ticket, she gave me a weird look, and asked for my ID, and I passed her my driving license she checked it went off and got my parcel. Hard to explain, but it was weird, I promise.
