me, me, meme

Yes, thank you to Chippy and Jan for getting me to answer some questions!

I will do so now before I go to bed with a gorgeous black man with green eyes. Well, I say man. I actually mean cat...

What were you doing ten years ago?

I was in the first year of my GCSEs...where did time go?

What were you doing one year ago?

I was moving back to England

Five snacks you enjoy.

The Boy has gotten me hooked on Pom Bears. I also like cherries (just had them for dinner, in fact), chocolate of most descriptions, bagels with marmite and bananas

Five songs to which you know all the lyrics.

I have NO idea! Possibly none. Possibly a couple by Kylie or Madonna or something incredibly cool. Yes! I know all the words to 'Vogue' including the spoken bit in the middle.

Five things you would do if you were a millionaire.

Invest it wisely so I could get richer, buy a house, buy an Aston Martin DB9 in Gunmetal, have liposuction, give lots to a cats home. (I don't think I even need to mention in that that I would buy shoes...)

Five bad habits.

smoking, tidying up my nails when I should be concentrating, tapping my fingers on any surface so they make a noise because I have long nails, pouring half drunk cups of tea out of my office window and slouching around in my jim jams

Five things you like doing.

I'm not writing that on here!

Five things you would never wear again.

If it looked that bad to start with I wouldn't have worn it.

Five favorite toys

My rabbit ginger which my dad gave me, and also Pengy the Penguin which he brought back from the Falkland Islands, Arthur the Bear which The Boy bought me and is just very cute, and two special ones which I am not mentioning on here.

So there. That okay?

Now, I'm going to get other people to do it...Dizzy is going to have to, as is The Tin Drummer, I'm going to make Belle de Jure have a go and Croydonian and Lady MacLeod. Enjoy!

Ah, now the Aston Martin DB9 in gunmetal is one I should have had but I've long since grown accustomed to having it as nothing but my desktop.

Sad but true.

Hope you're feeling better and yes, quit that smoking. ;o)

Jan Tregeagle said...

Oh no, got to be the DB7 for me. Though I'm split between British racing green and gunmetal.

Croydonian said...

Not big on memes, but since it's you:

What were you doing ten years ago?

Neglecting my responsibilities

What were you doing one year ago?

See previous...

Five snacks you enjoy

Pretzels, nachos, peanuts, pork scratchings and most crisps

Five songs to which you know all the lyrics

'The Red Flag' for ironic baiting of lefties, lots of 80s songs and probably the entire oeuvre of the Alabama 3

Five things you would do if you were a millionaire

Start making economies....

Five bad habits

Depends what rates as bad. Smoking cigars, drinking too much, passive aggression, lying for the hell of it, general sloth

Five things you like doing

Laptop, desktop, scanner, iPod, coffee pot
