The one where I answer questions...

I've been tagged by Brenda to answer the questions below: I am to tag 8 other people, who in turn will (should they choose to accept this mission) mention the person who tagged them, and answer the questions below (you may change any question that you do not like and replace it with a question of your own.)

Okay, I tag Natalie, Katherine, Katey, Danette, Carrie, Kim, Adrienne, Mary.

What are your nicknames? Oh dear - none current, thank the lord. Though I was called 'Percy' in primary school (how hideous is that) because - watch out serious imagination at play here - the gardener on the TV show 'Blue Peter' was called Percy Thrower and my surname was (and is) Gardner. And worse I did have a wee (ahem!) spell of 'Garden Peas' because I may have lost control of my bladder - but I was only small.

What game show and/or reality show would you like to be on? 'I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here' - which would be rather difficult as I'm not a celebrity. And my reason - so I can spend some time with the cool presenter dudes Ant and Dec (sorry to all who don't know who they are - their fame has probably not spread beyond the UK).

What was the first movie you bought in VHS or DVD? How am I supposed to remember something like that? Okay, I can say for certain the first movie I ever taped was 'The Breakfast Club', but my first purchased VHS. Erm, I'm going to go for 'Pretty in Pink'. I was a mega John Hughes fan.

What is your favorite scent? If we're talking perfume than it has to be 'Angel', otherwise - here's where I sound like an arsonist - it's burnt matches (I could sniff them for England) and possibly burnt anything. When I was little I used to sniff Firelighters. Oh, and I should add not in a getting high way, though it would explain alot.

If you had a million dollars that you could only spend on yourself, what would you do with it? Buy a fantastic house with a swimming pool, or if that wouldn't cover it then a fantastic swimming pool with a wee house. P.S. I can't swim.

What one place have you visited that you can't forget and want to go back to? Las Vegas. There's nowhere on Earth like it.

Do you trust easily? Yes - which is not necessarily a good thing.

Do you generally think before you act, or act before you think? 100% Act before I think.

Is there anything that has made you unhappy lately? Having to do extra hours at work. Boo!

Do you have a good body image? Ha!

What is your favorite fruit? Banana.

What websites do you visit daily? Graveside Tales Forum, Verla Kay Boards, Blogs, Google News.

What have you been seriously addicted to lately? Maltesers and the internet.

What kind of person do you think the person who tagged you is? Helpful, Friendly, Knowledgeable, and Talented.

What's the last song that got stuck in your head? Let's Dance by David Bowie - because it's on an advert that keeps playing; though my usual staples are 'The Sun Will Come out Tomorrow' (from Annie) or 'On this beautiful winter's morning' (from Scrooge).

What's your favorite item of clothing? I don't have one.

Do you think Rice Krispies are yummy? Erm, they're okay.* Beginning to wonder if this meme is for kids.

What would you do if you saw $100 lying on the ground? Think "Crap, I wish it was a £100."

What items could you not go without during the day? Mascara, eyeliner, chocolate, more eyeliner, water, my computer, a pen, a notebook, more chocolate.

What should you be doing right now? Ahem! Writing. But then, this is sort of writing.

Hah! We're in a mutual tag society. Can you tell that I've been automating my posts? Snarf.

Cate Gardner said...

Ah, that explains it. LOL! :) Oh, and mine was automated too - I set it up last night to go live this morning.

Adrienne said...

Thanks for the tag! I did it, check it out!

Cate Gardner said...

Thanks, Adrienne - and I will.

Fox Lee said...

Survey time!

Katey said...

"Crap, I wish it was a £100."

I think most Americans would think that too...

Yay for memes, that was fun!
