Stolen mements

Today is a slow news day at my place, just a lot of faffing around really. So I broke into Dave's blog while he was asleep and stole this meme.

1. What was the first car you drove (legally)? The first car I drove (as a learner) was a boyfriend's Honda Civic. The first car I owned, immediately after passing my driving test, was a red Renault 5 which I named Rasputin. I loved that car.

2. How many colours has your hair been? It was quite fair when I was a child, it got darker and is naturally dark brown. I've tried various colours, blonde, blonde highlights, dark with plummy highlights and so on. Now it is just dark brown.

3. Have you ever been fired? No. I have had to fire other people though. That's not pleasant.

4. What do you sing in the shower? I don't, I sing in the car a lot though.

5. If you could be any celebrity, who would you be? I wouldn't want to be any celebrity, they're prats.

6. Who was your favourite teacher and why? My grade 5 teacher, Miss Holden. She was a left wing, feminist, hippy (although I didn't realise it at the time). She taught us about current affairs and politics and women's rights - I don't know if she was supposed to, but I thought she was fantastic. She's probably responsible for my left wing hippy views today.

7. If you had a nickname, what is it, if not, what would you like it to be? Don't have one, some people call me Caity which I tolerate but no, no nicknames. I have no desire for a nickname.

8. What would the title to the movie about your life be? They're making a movie about my life? OMG, really? What's it called? Oh. That was cruel...I'm not playing anymore.

Feel free to do this meme I'm quite sure Dave and whoever he nicked it from won't mind.

Oops, Dave just pointed out that I missed half the meme...silly's the rest....

9. If we say we are here to help others, then what are others here for? I wash the dishes?

10. Who was your first crush? I have no idea, perhaps I could just make it up.

11. Do you believe in karma? Hmmm, not sure...kind of....that doesn't really answer the question does it?

12. What are the best and worst inventions, in your opinion? The internet is the best (my rice maker comes a close second) and those automatic, recorded, phone answering thingies you get whenever you ring any organisation these days are the far.

13. What is the worst physical injury youʼve ever had? I tore a disk in my back once. That hurt. I;'ve had a broken wrist and collar bone, they both hurt too.

14. Who is your favourite Batman? Do you mean my favourite actor who plays Batman? I don't know because I'm not a fan of Batman although I have seen the two most recent ones (Batman Begins and Dark knight) and that guy playing Batman seems ok to me.

15. What is your very earliest memory? About 2, standing at the window waving my parents off as they went away leaving me with my Gran. As much as I loved my Gran and desperately wanted to stay with her, I recall feeling totally abandoned as my parents disappeared into the distance. I think it was the first time I'd been left overnight without them.

16. Is there any animal/creature that creeps you out? Cybermen. Daleks are scary too but Cybermen win.

Bloody hell...I missed another TWO...what is wrong with me??? Here they are....

17. Which is the place that youʼve never been that you'd most like to visit? Oooh, so many! Top of the list....Norway and Turkey.

18. When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up? When I was very young I had a ladybird book about jobs and there was a page in it about being a 'kennel maid'. I loved dogs even then and my childish heart soared at the idea of a job looking after dogs all day.

Ok, I hope that's finally it...this has turned into the meme from hell...or the meme that won't go away...or the meminator...or something.

I seem to remember there were more than 8 questions when I did this one. Still, it's nice to hear from you.

Oops, I thought it seemed a bit short...not quite myself at the moment. I shall update with the rest of the questions.

Dave said...

Ahem. There were 18 questions when I did it. I think the picture of the Alien so entranced you that you forgot to read on.

Oh crap.

Dave said...

I expect it's something to do with age.

You haven't grown up enough to learn to concentrate yet.

Z said...

That was brilliant, and the bits left out and added just made it more entertaining.

Cathy said...

love your best and worst inventions. would have to agree.

I went twice in my teens - both wonderful wonderful trips, full of fjords, mountains and lakes; then my big bro worked in Oslo for a while when I was in my 20s, so I spent some time there too

I'd love to go back and can highly recommend it! (but it's a bit of a long way away from Oz. . .)


(ps this was my go at the meme thingy)

You're right Dave, my youthful enthusiasm affects my attention span sometimes.

Thank you Z, I'm glad I managed to accidentally entertaining - fluking my way through life that's me.

I remembered something else we face at least the next 7 days over 35 degrees....AIR CONDITIONING!!!

The thing is I,LTV I've wanted to go for YEARS and it would have been much easier to get there from the UK and I never got round to it!
D'oh! I'm off to read your meme now...
