A Meme. . . All About Me! Me!

April 30, 2009 at 22:47 2 comments

Schmutzie has tagged me for a meme. . . Woot, I feel special.

The rules of this meme are as follows:
– Respond to and rework the meme.
– Answer the questions on your own blog.
– Replace one question and add one question.
– Tag 8 people

So um. . . As far as tagging people, I don’t have eight friends, so if you are actually reading this, consider yourself tagged and I will have officially fulfilled my meme spreading duties.

What are your current obsessions?

Growing delicious things on my balcony, and eating bananas.

Which item from your wardrobe do you wear the most often?
My one and only pair of maternity jeans. . . I wear them and wear them until the giant elastic bit starts to stretch out and I start to lose them while walking. I then pick a day in which, a) I don’t have to go anywhere, or b) It is warm enough to wear a skirt or dress, and wash them in hopes that the washing machine and drying process will return them to their original size.

What’s for dinner?
I haven’t decided yet. . . I am thinking stir-fry and pot stickers but that would involve me going to the store and yesterday when I went to the store I tripped over the line painted on the street and bruised up my knees real good!. . . So I’ll probably just leave dinner to Das Piper tonight.

What is your greatest fear at the moment?
That my doctor’s appointment this afternoon won’t go as smoothly as all the ones before it. . . Possibly due to the face/knee plant I did yesterday, even if my stomach didn’t even come close to hitting the ground.

What are you listening to?
Um, iTunes on random. . . at this particular second it is Joel Plaskett Emergency – Written All Over Me. . . For anyone interested, Joel Plaskett is playing at the Distrikt on the 6th. . .it’s a Wednesday I know, but will someone please come with me?

If you were a god/goddess what would you be?
Definitely not one of those Greek ones that disguise themselves as animals to have sex with hot chicks. . . That’s just weird and kind of wrong.

What are your favourite holiday spots?
Beautiful British Columbia. Particularly the island of Galiano. It’s got hippies just like salt-spring, only without as much of the touristy weekender stuff. . . Although it’s quickly going that direction.

What are you reading right now?
Heather Armstrong’s “It Sucked And Then I Cried: How I Had A Baby, A Breakdown, And A Much Needed Margarita”.

What are four words that describe you?
Bloated, nauseated, grumpy, glowing.

What is your guilty pleasure?
Just like Schmutzie, who tagged me for this meme, I watch ‘The Hills”, usually in secret online while Das Piper is at work. . . And while I am getting things off of my chest. . . I’ve been watching since it was Laguna Beach. . . I am going to go hang my head in shame now.

What is one thing you could never live without?
A personal music device of some kind. . . I don’t care if it’s my iPod or whatever, if it has headphones and plays my music I am happy.

What is your favourite spring thing to do?
Bring out all of my summer clothes and organize them according to style and colour. . . This organization will last all of a week or so before I give up on it entirely.

Where are you planning to travel next?
To northern Saskatchewan for the Ness Creek Folk Festival. . . I will be a real earth mother with my dirty hippy feet and giant pregnant belly.

What is the best thing you ate or drank lately?
Yesterday, after I tripped over the line painted on the road, I bought myself a deep and delicious cake and some pink lemonade and all was good.

When was the last time you were tipsy?
I don’t even remember anymore. . .New Years probably. . . I mysteriously developed aversions to every vice I had. Turns out I was pregnant.

What is your favourite ever film?
Um, normally I would say Kevin Smith’s Dogma, which I do love dearly. But the reality is that when I have nothing else to watch, or need some cheering up, I run straight into the arms of Pauly Shore. . . I am Bio-Dome’s bitch.

What is the biggest life lesson you’ve learned from your kids?
Woman who say that they were never sick, and that pregnancy was the greatest 40 weeks of their lives are bitches and liars and should be ashamed of themselves for making it look so easy. That’s false advertising!

What song can’t you get out of your head?
Two songs ago, iTunes shuffle decided I should listen to Jack Black’s ‘Fuck Her Gently’, and who am I to question iTunes shuffle? . . . Now I have that line about Zanzibar stuck in my head.

What book do you know you should read but refuse to?
“What To Expect When You’re Expecting”. . . It’s just a big list of things you can’t do, followed by a big list of everything that will go wrong if you do, followed by a big list of everything that will go wrong no matter what you do. . . I don’t need that kind of stress in my already paranoid mind.

What is your physical abnormality/abnormal physical ability?
I can make things explode with my mind. . . I just choose not to.

    I will consider myself tagged then. Thanks – I mean I like Jack, but damn… not a good song for me to absentmindedly start singing out loud at the office ;)

    Hope the doc was good to you. Big hugs

    Thank you so much for not exploding things with your brain. I truly appreciate that.

What is a Pocket Buddha?

The pocket Buddha is a talisman, whether the pocket is in our mind or our jeans, the pocket Buddha is there to add a touch of Zen to our lives. He smiles from his dark penny and used tissue filled abode and reminds us simultaneously to go with the flow of our lives and to keep our goals, hopes and dreams ahead of us. At least one moment everyday, the satisfaction of a project completed, the taste of a meal we managed to make without burning, the extraordinary patience we somehow managed to show in the most frustrating of times, the pocket Buddha throws us a pocket-lint sized piece of nirvana, and for that I am very grateful.
