Meme theft

emzeegee decided to use The Age's Good Weekend glimpse-at-a-famous-person-meme for her latest blog and I've decided to steal the idea.

Your Time Starts Now...

My earliest memory is... of the blue carpet squares in my bedroom when I was 3. And the tiled staircase in those apartments.

At school I... talked too much.

My first relationship was... with a red-haired boy called Gregory who I used to chase around for a kiss (I was 5).

I don't like talking about... politics.

My mother and father always told me... that I could do anything I set my mind to.

I wish I had... used my 20's productively, at least travelled some.

I wish I hadn't... wasted my 20's.

My most humiliating moment was... not worth reliving.

My happiest moments were... when I was getting to know my husband and when I was pregnant.

At home I cook... whatever I feel like, I dislike routine meals.

My last meal would be... Osso Bucco and chocolate pudding

I'm very bad at... art.

When I was a child I wanted to be... an obstetrician.

The book that changed my life is... Siddhartha.

It's not fashionable, but I love... the music to Calamity Jane.

The song I'd like played at my funeral is... I'll Fly Away

Friends say I am... confronting.

My greatest fear is... losing those I love.

If only I could... fly.

The hardest thing I've ever done was... Brain Chemistry.

The last big belly laugh I had was... watching this Bill Cosby routine.

What I don't find amusing is... The state of the world. Financial, environmental, energy use.

I'm always being asked... when I'll be finished studying.

Cat or dog... Dog. I love dogs best. But I prefer the smell of cats.

If I wasn't me I'd like to be... Angelina Jolie (is that dumb or what?).

At the moment I'm reading... Orson Scott Card's Keeper of Dreams  (short story collection). I love OSC.

My favourite work of art is... pretty much anything by John William Waterhouse.

My worst job was... cleaning houses. It's back-breaking work (though strangely satisfying).

I often wonder... whether society will founder and collapse. Will there be a bright and shining future?

  1. Pundelina,

    Hey! Some of our answers are quite similar. I have to say I adore Osso Bucco and I published a recipe earlier in the year for my favourite way to make it. As for cleaning houses, I've never done it but have always thought it falls into that category of difficult and yet wonderful as you get an immediate sense of accomplishment (and unfortunately, probably a back ache as well!)
