a way back then memememe answered

January 28, 2009

So over 2 months ago back in the long shadows of 2008, Ella over at The New is the True tagged me for a meme.  Which I of course was very excited about, I mean who doesn’t love a little meme once in a while.  But as things tend to do, I just never got around to doing it, so here now in brand new remodeled luxury is my version of the meme.

  1. Link to the person or persons who tagged you.
  2. Post the rules on your blog.
  3. Write six random things about yourself.
  4. Tag six people at the end of your post and link to them.
  5. Let each person know they’ve been tagged and leave a comment on their blog.
  6. Let the tagger know when your entry is up.

Random 1 – When I was younger I could do the sideways splits, which I think was mainly due to some weird double jointedness.   Unfortunately I didn’t keep it up and now just have normal Clark Kent flexibility.  Although I can still make my thumb and middle finger do these weird crooked things.

Random 2 – I have never been to Disneyland or Disneyworld or Disneyplanet (this one may or may not exist).

Random 3 – I enjoy small amounts of repetitive type tasks such as sorting coins, shelving books, and various forms of data entry.  However in large amounts I hate all of those tasks with a passion.

Random 4 – If left totally to my own devices and guaranteed no negative health implications; I would probably eat melted cheese for every single meal for the rest of my life.  Oh and maybe some fresh berries too!

Random 5 – I have never particularly loved ice cream except for hot fudge sundaes or a scoop on warm pie.  Ice cream cones and fancy flavors hold little appeal for me.

Random 6 – Just in case you weren’t already aware of my rather large obsession with Lord of the Rings, I have read the complete trilogy around 6 or 7 times, plus the Hobbit and Silmarillion another 4 and 2 times respectively.  I watched the movies three times each in the theater, dressed up in elven gear for the 2nd and 3rd midnight openings and have since watched the extended version (or as I like to call it – the only version worth watching) and all their DVD extras multiple times.  However the blame for this obsession should also be laid partly on my Dad who read the entire trilogy out loud to my brothers and I when we were kids.


  1. I had been wondering who’s been reading from Chicago! Ah, the stalkiness of the web: isn’t it a little odd that I can tell where hits on my page come from?

    Point 1: Your blog is beautiful.
    Point 2: I’m very excited about being able to read it now.
    Point 3: You win!

  2. I agree with number three and number four. Actually number two is true for me too. But! I have been to Universal Studios (as an adult, even) and I loved it.

  3. If only one could live by melted cheese alone! (Ok, and fresh fruit. And chocolate. And champagne. And warm kalamata olive bread with a smear of goat cheese, and slightly fuzzy green beans snapped right off the vine and and roasted cherry tomatoes wrapped in fresh basil leaves and….Ok, I love food way too much but the cheese thing is right on. Melted cheese is the best comfort food ever. We should swap favorite melted cheese recipes sometime.)

  4. Concerning Random 5, ice cream remains my absolutely favourite food, especially when it’s 45 degrees C. as it was in Melbourne yesterday, the previous 2 days being a mere 44! Melted cheese (or just camembert or brie) on black-olive bread is, however, pretty good.

  5. I can verify random #6, and as a result of the roommate situation I too ended up watching all 5,359 hours of extras. (Maybe my memory is slightly off on the numbers…)

  6. Kim – Oh I am glad you like it, and I must say I think your blog wins too!
    Ella – I think in the right circumstances I would enjoy going to Disneyworld as an adult, but I can never seem to remember if Disneyworld is the one is Florida or the one in California 🙂
    Quietphoenix – Wow, that sounds like a pretty amazing meal there, yes we should swap recipes. One I would really love to try is the greek flaming cheese appetizer.
    Mirabella – You raise a good point, the appeal of ice cream rises significantly during our summer months. And I do have to admit craving soft serve when the temperatures get too high 🙂
    Windwhistler – so true, and I think you may be off slightly, I think it was more like 5,314 or so 🙂
