I borrowed, with her approval, this Moi meme from the wonderfully fabulous Sazfab... Such a star, and very dear to my wild heart!
If you haven't already come to visit over at our other Blog, Mad Manic Mamas, about the joys and horrors of parenting Teen Terrorists, do clickie here. I'm over there once again today -- I'll meet myself coming back one of these days!
What is your salad dressing of choice?
Definitely home-made French, a recipe that I picked up while working as an au-pair in an aristo French family in the mid eighties, while I was studying French at Uni...
What is your favourite sit-down restaurant?
I do love Italian food... And I've just had an Indian Takeaway from Safran, the newly opened (recently flooded) resto in Morpeth... I like La Vina, a Spanish restaurant in Newcastle, too...
I'll eat practically anything, so long as it's vegetarian, my dahlink!
What food could you eat for 2 weeks straight and not get sick of it ? Saz's answer? "Typically fantastial for a woman of a certain age, a bit of variety please, Hugh Jackman with side portion of Gerard Butler..."
For me, the avid foodie, probably a home-made comfort food, Fried Egg Sandwich!
What are your pizza toppings of choice?
What do you like to put on your toast?
Butter, or Bonne Maman apricot jam... Never, ever both at the same time - Why would you do that, put butter and jam on toast??!
How many televisions are in your house?
Three... and two that I'm about to give away, as we replaced them, but I just can't get around to advertising them on Freecycle, or something similar... Lazy hag, that I am!
What colour cell phone do you have?
Red, about to be renewed, and I'm hoping for girly pink or snazzy-chic black...
What does the first text message in your in box say and who sent it?
From my boss, with arrangements to be picked up to travel south tomorrow...
Who was the last person to call you?
Grizz, asking whether we'd remembered his Sheek Kebab starter, when ordering the take-away... The kid's always got his beak open like a little baby bird...
He's 6' 4" tall...
Are you right-handed or left-handed?
A rightie, but Grizz is left-handed, and I've always loved that in men - Odd, non?!
Have you ever had anything removed from your body?
Bits of my ruptured disc in January... Oh, and some teeth, years ago... All in the back...
What is the last heavy item you lifted?
Since my back op, my handbag is the heaviest thing I intend to lift for a long, long time...
If it were possible, would you want to know the day you were going to die?
Same as Saz, "No way, José!"
If you could change your name, what would you change it to?
I do like Fhina Crawford...
Would you drink an entire bottle of hot sauce for $1000?
How much is that in old money?!
If it would pay for my next hollingberries, probably yes!
How many pairs of flip-flops do you own?
Two pairs only... One pair, L.K. Bennett's, came free with a magazine the summer before last, and No. 2 pair I purchased at a cheapie shop so that I could go for a pedicure and not ruin it immediately! They're black with cerise coloured cherries, very me...
Last time you had a run-in with the cops?
I got stopped because one of my tail lights was out... Five years ago - I was really fretting, and terrified... I have enormous respect for the Coppers!
Last person you talked to in person?
GJ, about a documentary on the Arts Channel about Van Gogh!
December - Mine, and my mother's birthdays and Christmas...
