25 Question Neme...

Megan put this on her blog. I thought I'd give it a go since it is a lazy Sunday and nothing of note comes to mind...

1. What's your favourite Dr. Seuss book?

The Cat in the Hat, of course!

2. If you could live in any home on a television series, what would it be?

Shipley Windmill, the fictional home of Jonathan Creek, the magician who solved crimes with a female sidekick in the BBC series.

3. What's the longest you've gone without sleep? Twenty-four hours...and don't ask why!

4. What's your favourite Barry Manilow song? Is this a trick question? I did not know there was such a thing...

5. Who's your favourite Muppet? Kermit...It ain't easy bein' green...

6. What's the habit you're proudest of breaking? The one that was stealing my life...

7. What's your favourite website? Le petit mort...Just goes to the point that anyone can post anything on the Web...

8. What's your favourite school supply? I'm a notebook girl, all the way...

9. Who's your favourite TV attorney? The one who gets run over by the ambulance he's chasing...

10. What was your most recent trip of more than 50 miles? Southern California...

11. What's the best bargain you've ever found at a garage sale or junk shop? Limoges plates...

12. Where were you on September 11, 2001? Sadly, in the U.S.

13. What's your favourite tree? Banyan...

14. What's the most interesting biography you've read? Katherine Graham's Personal History...

15. What do you order when you eat Chinese food? I don't eat a lot of this but on the odd occasion, Broc and tofu...

16. What's the best costume you've ever worn? The Bunny Costume...



17. What's your least favourite word? Putain...You can look up the translation yourself...

18. If you had to be named after one of the 50 states, which would it be? I'd flee the country rather than endure that...

19. Who's your favourite bear? Smokey...

20. Describe something that's happened to you for which you have no explanation. My mother already detailed my conception, that should be more than enough answer to this enquiry...

If you could travel anywhere in Africa, where would it be? I'd visit Karen of Bordertown Notes or Val of Monkeys on the Roof, two favourite bloggers who produce wonderful photos and commentary about their corners of the planet...

22. What did you have for lunch yesterday? Nothing...I missed it...

23. Where do you go for advice? Well, I might go to Megan, if she'd ever answer her mobile...

24. Which do you use more often, the dictionary or the thesaurus? Thesaurus...

25. Have you ever been snorkeling? Scuba diving? Yes to the snokeling, no to the diving...

It is tea time at chez moi and the natives are restless...

Until Next Time...

limoges? My mother found a limoges teacup in the bottom of a moving barrel!

A good list, e. What's happening on Virtual Book Club? I have to find Sarah's Key; it's around here, somewhere.

For some reason Green Eggs and Spam has turned into my favorite Dr. Seuss book.

And any attorney who chases an ambulance deserves to get run over. Those dang ambulance chasing ones just get jobs in the gobernent anyway and then lie about the reasons they want to take our hard earned tax money. Dang gobernent thieves anyway.

But those were some great answers and can I just ask......

God bless.

I loved you in the bunny costume! And I'm a little jealous of the Limoges plates.

I Wonder Wye said...

Fun list. Limoges? Way cool. And I also loved the Katharine Graham bio. Esp b/c i had lived in DC and the W Post was a great newspaper to read. Re your question, if I could go anywhere, -- other than crazy? haha --I love to travel, and in the US, it would be Canyon Dechilly, or Best Friends Animal Sanctuary outside of UT. Outside the states, I'd love to go on a walk-about in Ireland, or Scotland, or villages in England.....may be different answers next week....

Hello. You like Banyan tree. That's a very unusual kind of tree. The picture of you in bunny outfit makes me smile.

Megan said...

I'm a horrible friend, sometimes. :(

The offspring and Mortimer are quite well and send greetings!

Banyan is an excellent choice of tree.

Bunny Costume? Wow. I had put one of those for Halloween. Since everyone thought it was cute, I tried something scarier. The next year I was angry Paper man. Pieces of paper were stuck all over the Bunny costume... LOL
Nice post. Toodles!:)

I really enjoy when you do these Question Meme/Neme. Thank you for sharing.

Cute little costume :D

You inspire me to do the same, but then I forget to. Maybe one day I actually will give it a go.
