oh yay, a meme for blog camp day

lisa-marie at this girl... tagged me for one of those question memes where you answer all of them but the one you like least, replace that one with one of your own choosing and then pass it along. :-) it sounded like the perfect post for a saturday, when i'm hanging out with my blog campers!! (squeal! yay! happy dance of joy!) here are the questions (and i'll admit i chopped off more than just one--it was getting too long for me, but i added several easy ones at the end):

what is your current obsession?
thankfully, i seem to have moved on somewhat from the eyeball thing, so i'd have to say stones. rock on, man. especially if the stones also look like eyeballs. that's the best.

coffee or tea?
both - tea in the morning--with milk and 1.5 spoons of sugar, coffee the rest of the day, with plenty of milk (preferably steamed/frothed), but no sugar.

what's for dinner?
tonight, it was one of our favorite dishes--fish (we used rødspætter--one of those ugly flat fish with eyes on top, not on the sides, that i don't know the name of in english) baked in the oven with a lovely mess of grated carrots, leeks and a can of coconut milk. served over rice. it's heavenly. and there's some left over, so i'll be having it for lunch tomorrow. yum. we have a great fish guy in our town, so i try to go there at least once a week.

what would you eat for your last meal?
wagyu beef and a big plate of sushi

what was the last thing you bought?
i'd love to say it was my chucks, but it was four packages of tea, a package of fried onions (ristetløg) and a bag of crisps made of root veggies (so totally healthy). :-)

what are you listening to right now?
sadly, i'm listening to husband snoring, as i turned off the music when he went to bed. most of the day, we listened to america's greatest hits, oddly enough.

what's your favorite ice cream flavor?
i love a really good coconut ice cream and once cried in a thai restaurant in phoenix because they were out of theirs, which was heavenly. once i cried, they actually scrounged up a bowl of it for me. lesson in that: crying to get your way--very effective.

what do you think of the person who tagged you?
lisa-marie's blog is new on my blogdar (like radar, only detects blogs)...i think i've visited her one time previously. i love discovering new blogs and anyone who uses lots of ellipses is cool in my book.

if you could go anywhere in the world for the next hour, where would you go?
i'd go to the seminary co-op bookstore in hyde park, chicago. i could easily kill and hour and several hundred dollars there.

which language do you want to learn?
i'd like to learn afrikaans.

what is your favorite color?
i think this says it all: turquoisey-blue

what's your favorite piece of clothing in your own wardrobe?
my best and fave long & lean gap jeans. (and you thought i was gonna say the chucks, didn't you?)

what is your dream job?
i think i have my dream job, but would like to blog for a living.

what is your worst habit?

if you had £100 right now, what would you spend it on?

do you admire anyone's style?
this is really bad, but i'm drawing a total blank. i love dr. gregory house's style...but that's more a state of mind than a look.

describe your personal style...
this isn't a question. i refer you to my profile description in the sidebar. :-) my style's all over the place, depending on the occasion. i love fake lashes. i have a hugo boss suit. but most of the time, i wear flannel pj bottoms, a comfy t-shirt and the striped gap sweater my sister gave me for christmas.

what are you going to do after this?
sleep (i've scheduled this post, you see). i don't sleep enough what with the fact that you all keep writing blog posts, even when i'm busy and i'll probably never catch up!

what are your favorite movies?
the abyss (afgrunden) (1910) starring asta nielsen
fargo, the princess bride, the castlenapoleon dynamite

what is your favorite smell?
this changes all the time (you know my thing for perfume), but i have to say that in spring, when the air is heavy with the scent of lilacs, that not much can beat that.

cats or dogs?
cats or cat-like dogs (e.g. pugs)

mac or PC?
mac (duh)

tolstoy or dostoevsky?

moscow or st. petersburg?

how many questions do you think i added? which ones?

and if you would like to play along, consider yourself tagged. thanks again lisa-marie for giving me an assignment, sorry i kinda tapered off at the end and didn't answer quite all of the original questions...

why do I love these memes? probably because they don't exist in the RW. Can you imagine drilling someone with these questions say over a McD's burger? hahahaha. We probably should though- we would know each other better

Char said...

I love the memes too because I love finding out things about my bloggy friends. fun I want thai food

rxBambi said...

might steal the meme...thanks :)

And yes, could definitely tell which ones you added :D
