Get To Know Me
What is your middle name?
There seems to be a tradition in my family which suggests a boy’s middle name will be his father’s first name. So, if I told you that my dad’s name is Lee, you would be correct in assuming that is also my middle name. My son’s middle name will be Michael, of course!
When was the last time you cried?
At the time of writing this, two weeks ago. My fiance was pestering me to watch the Disney movie ‘Coco’, and I am glad that we did. It is a beautiful and mature movie which really moved me. I was really trying to hold back the tears but they still came through. Ellie was stroking my hair while my head was in her lap and she had no idea how much I was really crying.
What's your favourite pizza?
I am a big fan of a meat feast pizza. I usually prefer to stick to the tomato base but, sometimes, if I’m feeling daring, I’ll go for a BBQ base.
What's your favourite flower?
Flowers aren’t something that I have a lot of knowledge with, but despite it being the flower that represents death, I do like lilies.
What's your favourite season?
I LOVE hot weather! I absolutely loved it when we had the super long heatwave in the summer. Thirty degree heat every day is something I could happily live with.
Do you like to camp?
I haven’t really been camping. Not properly anyway. Me and my friends used to get a cheap tent and put it up in a random field and get drunk during the summer while sitting round a fire. They were some really great times.
Do you untie your shoes when taking them off?
Yes. Mainly because I like to have my shoes done up tight, but also because I don’t want to ruin the heel on the inside and cause holes.
Do you like rollercoasters?
I love it when I get the chance to go to a theme park. It doesn’t happen often but I love going on the rides. Big fan of The Swarm at Thorpe Park.
What is your favourite ice cream?
I recently discovered Häagen-Dazs strawberry cheesecake flavour. It’s incredible. Cheesecake is my favourite dessert so to have a tub of ice cream with that flavour it simply divine.
What is your favourite thing to do?
I love to just relax on the sofa and play a JRPG. Any Final Fantasy will do (IX or X is my go to).
Shorts or jeans?
A nice pair of jeans. But why not have the best of both worlds? Denim shorts!
Country or rock?
I’m definitely going to have to say rock on this one. I do love country as well, but not as much. Me and Ellie had tickets to see Country to Country at the O2 in a VIP box back in 2016 and that was an amazing experience.
What's your favourite colour?
The blue/green/turquoise/aquamarine (I don’t know!) that I use for the title text on my blog. The hex code for it is #168FAA – thank me later.
Do you have any tattoos?
I do! Being the huge nerd I am and the fact that I love Final Fantasy an unhealthy amount, I have a Sanctum L’cie brand tattoo on my back. That was my first. My second was a poorly done Mickey Mouse silhouette on my hip. My best tattoo is one I got myself as a 21st birthday present – a flammel. This is the symbol that is worn by Edward and Alphonse in Fullmetal Alchemist – my favourite anime.
Do you colour your hair?
Nope and I probably won’t, despite all of the grey hair I am getting on the sides. I had blue hair for a while, which I absolutely loved but nothing since.
What colour are your eyes?
Brown! I quite like my eye colour when I really stare at it for a while. One time (while I was very drunk) I spent ages looking in the mirror trying to convince myself that I had green eyes. It didn’t work.
What is your favourite thing to eat?
I really love having chicken wrapped in bacon. What really makes this special is when you sprinkle cajun on the chicken and put some cheese in there before wrapping it in the bacon.
What is your favourite holiday?
Although I love hot weather, Christmas is my favourite holiday. I just love getting together with all my family and hearing about what has been going on in their lives, cracking jokes, playing games and eating WAY too much food.
Beer or wine?
I like both. I usually drink wine at home and beer when I’m out. Coors Light is definitely my favourite lager.
Night owl or morning person?
I used to be great in the mornings, but I think I’m shifting to be more of a night owl. I like to get as much done in the day as possible and fit that around my actual job so I try to wake up at 6.a.m and go to sleep at midnight.
What is your favourite day of the week?
For me, it would be Saturday. That’s purely because I can wake up early and work on whatever I want without worrying about having to go to work.
Do you have a nickname?
Kids can be so cruel…just kidding.
Growing up my family called me Micky-Lee and I used that as the name of my previous YouTube channel. I had people calling me Micky for a time and some of my friends still do, but my closest friends call me Mike.
