Sam Blenkinsop Last Time questions

When was the last time:

You upset your neighbours?

It would have been when I got back from overseas at the end of last season and we had a party at our place. The next morning we woke up to the old man next-door hosing my room's windows and roof ...so I guess he was kind of pissed at us from the night before.

When was the last time:

You won a race?

It was last weekend, the 2nd round of the North Island Cup in Rotorua. The track was sick as.

When was the last time:

You hurt yourself?

Yesterday, trying to ride XC on my 4X bike.

When was the last time:

You bought something you didn't need?

Today. I bought a sandwich and I didn't eat it.

When was the last time:

You heard a good joke? (What was it?)

"Hey mate, I've won a competition for me and my 10 best mates to go to Surfers Paradise for 2 weeks with $1000 each for us to spend. Since you and I go back a long way, I was hoping I could trust you to put the rubbish out for me while I'm gone."

When was the last time:

You fixed a puncture?

The other day I was biking home and I got a puncture so I biked home on it and fixed it at home.

When was the last time:

You scared yourself?

It was last weekend. I race vintage motocross and they had just wet the track. I reckon I would have been going about 50km/h coming into a turn and it was a bit wetter than I thought. I got so close to high-siding, that I all most left a burn in my pants

When was the last time:

You saw something that made you go "Holy Shit!"

It was the other day when me and my mates went to a place where you jump off a cliff into a lake. It didn't look that high but when you jump its like "Holy Shit!".

When was the last time:

You did some actual digging with a spade?

Today. I did some fixing of my dirt jumps.

When was the last time:

You heard a really good song?

All music is good.

Blinky says he like all music, so here's a song from the New Zealand band Katchafire.
