The Meme With No Name........

Mimi (Mimi Writes) swiped borrowed this meme from somewhere and tagged the whole blogosphere with it, including me, under pain of imprisonment in her dungeon if we don’t do it. I’m not frightened of Mimi (I lie) but I’m short on blog fodder at the moment so I’m gonna do it.

When was the last time you splurged on a gift for yourself? I’m always buying myself stuff!

Have you ever bought yourself a gift for Christmas, Valentines Day, a birthday or any other occasion and then wrapped it up and pretended it was from someone else?  No - does anyone actually do that?

Have you ever sent yourself flowers, chocolates or anything else to your place of employment so it seemed as if someone else were sending you a gift? That’s more or less the same as the previous question isn’t it? The answer’s no.

How often do you text message? All the time!

Is there someone you'd like to fix things with? I’m on an even keel with everyone I know I think so no need to fix things.

Are there any previous relationships you wish could have lasted longer? They lasted long enough for me to discover they should be over!

When do you blow out the candles? Before the wax melts onto the cake and the fire brigade arrive!

Do you give out second chances too easily? Yep but I don’t forget.

What's the next big life decision you will have to make? How much notice to give my employer that I intend to retire.  Do I give them plenty or just a month which is the statutory requirement?   That depends on how much they piss me off!

If you could cuddle with anyone right now, who would you pick, and why?  That would have to be MWM as he’s sitting right here next to me, oh and I love him!

Who is probably talking a load of crap about you right now? I don’t care. Whilst they’re talking about me they’re leaving someone else alone.

Who was the last person to REALLY piss you off? Someone at work but  I’ve forgotten who it was.

Would you ever want to be a supermodel? No but I wouldn’t mind being 3 dress sizes smaller!

Your motivation for tomorrow? If I don’t go (to work) I don’t get paid!

Do you know what you will wear tomorrow? Well it would have been my grass skirt but Mimi’s borrowed it. I guess something warm as it’s a tad cold here.

What is the last thing you put your lips against? MyWonderfulMan’s

Have you ever gone two or more days without changing your underwear?  Absolutely not, not even one day!

Have you ever accidentally eaten an insect? My mouth sometimes feels as though I have when I wake up in a morning.

What serial killer do you find most disturbing? All serial killers are disturbing but those who kill children are definitely NOT human!

Are you ever purposely irritating? I could be if someone pisses me off.

What was the last thing you used your debit card for? Cash out of the ATM.

Are you cheating on your significant other right now?  Absolutely not and that's not because I know he may read this!

Are you contemplating cheating on your significant other right now?  Definitely not, it would never, ever enter my mind. Unless George Clooney knocked on my front door.

When was the last time you sat down and watched kiddie cartoons?   Last time the grandchildren were here.

Do you sleep with one leg out from under the covers?   Yes, when I get too warm which tends to be most nights because of the blessed hot flushes!

Do you have any text messages that you would be embarrassed to let your mom read?  No, I delete them straight away!

How old do you think you will be when you finally have kids/your next kid?  If I have any more kids there will be a star over my roof and three wise men in the garden!

Have you ever thought about converting to a new religion? My religion is ‘Mrs Do As You Would Be Done By’ that way you don’t have to ask forgiveness.
Do you know anyone with the same first name as you?  Not my blogname, it’s a made up name, my real name yes.

When was the last time you went to church?  Probably for a wedding or a funeral but I can’t remember when.

What song plays on your Myspace profile page?  None but I have a playlist on my blog.

Do you know anyone that smokes pot?  Probably but they don’t advertise.

What were you doing the last time you were in the bathroom? Brushing my teeth.

Have you ever had a Razr as a phone? Is a Razr a phone?

Which energy drink is better; Amp or Rockstar? I’ve never heard of either.

Would you rather eat a Milkyway or eat a Twix? Are you trying to tempt me off my diet?

Do you like that new shoe smell?   I love the smell of new shoes. Shoes, shoes, shoes, …. You’ve set me off now!

Do you like the taste of licorice? It’s OK.

Would you ever walk around with a free hugs sign like the dude on youtube? You have to advertise hugs? I give them without advertising.

Did you ever flip out on a teacher and walk out of a class?   You’re joking I was too scared of getting into trouble!

Do you/did you ever have dreams of being a rockstar? I dreamt of being married to a rock star.

If vegetarians think its wrong to eat living things, why do they eat plants?  If God didn’t want us to eat animals why did he make them out of meat?

If you are not one of the millions Mimi tagged please feel free to take the meme and do your stuff!


Elaine said...

I'm laughing my ass off at your last answer! What do you suggest he made them out of? LoL!

Great meme, Ak.

lettuce said...

no. 2 made me laugh - DOES anyone really do that?

(i thought liquorice was a bit like marmite - love/hate. clearly not)

citizen of the world said...

Good answers. But all this time I thought MWM stood for Married White Male!

CG said...

I'm wondering what bit of YWM your lips were pressed against...:)

Mel said...


Well, that was fun to read! Certainly lightened up my Monday Morning!

CrystalChick said...

I've soooo got to get back to memes again.

I never text. Don't even know how it works on my phone. LOL
I have bought a couple gifts that I've given to hub and told him to wrap up if he's stuck finding something for me from the kids.
Licorice, red okay, black ICKY!

G-Man said...

....You have a grass skirt?

buffalodick said...

Good stuff, as always! Omnivores for life!

Akelamalu said...

Well he'd have made them out of cellulose wouldn't he Laney if he didn't want us to eat meat? LOL

I haven't come across anyone that does #2 Lettuce but you never know. Liquorice - yes I think you either love it or hate it.

Ah no Citizen MWM is My Wonderful Man! :)

Ooooh CG that would be telling ;)

I'm glad you enjoyed it Mel :)

I just give MWM a list of what I want Crystal Chick :) I've never seen Red liquorice!

Of course I have a grass skirt G-man haven't you noticed my avatar? ;)

Emmie said...

"Do you/did you ever have dreams of being a rockstar? I dreamt of being married to a rock star."

Gosh me too.. still until today :o) xx

Daryl said...

Oh this is fun, she says, stepping away from the computer ... I am still working on one where I need to list 10 things beginning with the letter R

Donnetta Lee said...

Made me smile, "A." It's so cold and miserable here today that I needed a warm smile! D

Real Live Lesbian said...

Kickin' that leg out is the *BEST* way to cool off those hot flushes!

LMAO @ your last answer!

Just a Plane Ride Away said...

Such great answers!! I buy myself stuff all the time too, but never say it's from someone else ;-)

Sandi McBride said...

You are so much fun, I wish we were neighbors, lol!

Dr.John said...

That is one long meme but most certainly interesting.
At some point I might use it.
In any case I now know more about you.

Mimi Lenox said...

Grass skirt on the way! I forgot I'd borrowed it. I wore it Wednesday night on a disastrous date (oh, it was disastrous) but it wasn't the skirt's fault. Your grass skirt is magic. He was a jerk.

Thanks for doing the meme!

Ron said...

OMG, Akelamalu...this meme was BRILLIANT!!!

I so enjoyed everyone of your answers, but my favorite one (and also laughed my ass off) was...

..Who is probably talking a load of crap about you right now?

I don’t care. Whilst they’re talking about me they’re leaving someone else alone.


Oh...that was GREAT!!



RiverPoet said...

Hey Akela -

GC called and said you didn't answer the door! ;-)

Peace - D

cheshire wife said...

Akelamalu said...

Ah Emmie at least you're still young enough! LOL

Does that mean you won't be doing this one Daryl? LOL

I'm happy I made you smile Donnetta :)

Oh yes the leg out of bed definitely works RLL :0

What we need JAPRA is someone who will buy is stuff so we don't need to buy it ourselves!

We'd have a great time if we were neighbours Sandi x

Glad you enjoyed it Dr. John, I look forward to reading your responses if you use the meme. :)

He didn't like the grass skirt? He was definitely a jerk Mimi! ;)

So pleased you enjoyed the read Ron xx

Schmendel said...

I've still never texted. The thought of my fingerprints sailing through cyberspace like that creeps me out.

tony said...

That is one of the best Mies Ive seen.Well Done (I still want to be a Rock Star!!!!)

Akelamalu said...

Hi Schmendel and welcome. You've never texted? You should try it, you might like it. :)

Spiky Zora Jones said...

I thought...oh how wise you with the answer to the below question.

Who is probably talking a load of crap about you right now? I don’t care. Whilst they’re talking about me they’re leaving someone else alone.

SOOOOOO very true.
