Moi-meme... Me, myself, I and Cake Mania.

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!

Favourite Month?
December - Mine, and my mother's birthdays and Christmas...

Fhina Crawford, I had fun reading about your preferences and trying to figure out your cake theme. A couple of comments/questions:

What are "mushers"? -they don't seem tasty but I'm a vegetarian like you...I eat almost anything that isn't meat...but I stopped liking eggs...so they're off the list.

Oh, about the "coppers"-respect and fear-are they synonyms? I think I have the latter but it's good to have a protector around when you need one. Visit me...I got playful this week! <3

Tres bien! I might steal this one too someday xxx

lizspin said...

I'm a lefty. Do you like that in bloggy friends too????

Protege said...

Always fun to read peoples answers to unusual questions.;)
I am with Cynthia; what are "Mushers"? I guess they might be mushrooms, but I am not sure.;))

Derrick said...

Hello Fhina,

I don't think I could do this one as I wouldn't be able to answer several questions - about mobile phones, flip-flops (black with cherries, huh?) etc. Everybody say aaawww!

Comedy Goddess said...

That is a fun meme.

But seriously, for me, it's all about the cake porn. Love it!!

A Woman Of No Importance said...

Cynthia, mushers are indeed mushrooms... Always feel free to lob in a couple of questions, I love company! I shall be over to see you forthwith lovey!

Reasons: Steal away, Jo, as ever! Love to you! x

Liz: You're in (to my affections) like Flynn, and like a lovely Liz on Spin, you southpaw you! xox

Z: You are a very clever Protege, and anyone knows that who knows you! xo

Derrick: You always make me smile, Sir - Do you know that?! ;)

CG: More cake porn tomorrow, darling CG! One can never have enough cake porn, non?! xo

lakeviewer said...

Oh I had fun with this one. I didn't know you were vegetarian? I just adore your cakes.

Artist Unplugged said...

Oh, what fun, it is always fun to learn more about the all mystical and awesome Fhina!!! I like seeing all the cakes too since I dabble in a bit of the cake decor....did you do them? Love, laughs and cake icing!

Artist Unplugged said...

Okay, as soon as I hit the key I read in your labels that all the cake pictures came from photobucket.....duh, I am not the brightest bulb in the pack sometimes. I was just saying the other day to my son that I wish I had photos of all the cakes I have made together in one place.....maybe one day!

carma said...

try as I may, I could find a definition of "mushers" that was not related to pets. And Grizz is 6'4" already - wow!

A Woman Of No Importance said...

lakeviewer: I have been without meat and fish for a number of years now, dear Rosaria - Probably 14 years... I love it that you love 'my cakes'! x

Artist Unplugged: Sweetie, you flatter me, you truly do... These are Cake Wrecks fabulous cakes I think - I have the temerity to say I have never, ever, baked a cake... Sad, non?! I have made biscuits and shortbead, but no cake...Perhaps you should teach me, if we have the fortune ever to meet?! xxx

AU: I have those blonde moments too :) x

Carma: Mushrooms, my sweet - I have a long-term veggie friend who calls mushrooms 'mushers'... V. Sorry :) x

A Woman Of No Importance said...

I do not know what we have fed the Man-Child on, but he continues to grow like Topsy! Some days I feel as if I have strayed into Liliput, the child is sooooooooooo tall! He dwarfs me...

Mind, I did the same to my late mum, more or less! x

A Woman Of No Importance said...

Does anyone recall - I am terrified of the number 13?! Mwah!
