The Sunday Meme - Random Questions

As always, on a Sunday, a meme - and a check in for the tests I've set myself this week. The meme, as always, is from Sunday Stealing.

They're okay questions:

Who were you with yesterday?

Friends. Came up for a party. It was nice.

What woke you up this morning?

The sun peeking through the curtains of my hotel room. After eight blissful hours sleep it was lovely.

Where are you?

At the moment, in the lounge waiting for my plane at Sydney Airport. Waiting for planes is a good time to blog memes.

Is tomorrow going to be a good day?

I will attempt to make it a good day. As my current job is something I'm not that fond of I have to find ways of making it a good day.

What is on your mind right now?

There are quite a few things on my
mind. Things like what have I left off my shopping list, how am I going to write a short story in six weeks, should I pursue another role or stay in the job I'm in, do I need much more geopolitical stuff for my short story, should I organise my bibliography now (YES), what should I get my host family for Christmas... it goes on and on. Oh, and do I really have to finish the dire book group book for this month. Unfortunately I'm not enjoying it at all.

Do you listen to music every day?

No. Not intentionally, though it may be on in the background.

What is your favourite type of soda?

Does Indian Tonic Water count? It goes well with gin. On occassion, I love an ice cold coca cola, but that is rare.

Are you a fast typist?

I'm a middling five finger typist - sit around 50 wpm. Fast enough for me anyway.

Have you ever won an award?

No, but I've won the odd competition. A short story competition and a short fictional piece won me two airline tickets to anywhere in the world.

Are you listening to music right now?

No. Just the background noise of the airport.

How long to your birthday?

About ten months. Only had a birthday about six weeks ago.

What makes you angry?

Injustice, stupidity, bigotry and short-sightedness. Oh, I've just described our current federal government.

Do you buy and sell things on ebay?

Yes. Both. And thankfully I've had very few bad experiences. Thank goodness for PayPal.

What do you do when you're mad?

Stomp around the place and rant a lot. Thankfully I don't get angry too often and when I do I let it go quickly.

Do certain songs make you cry?

Yes. My Funny Valentine cuts me to the quick every time.

Are you a happy person?

I like to think so. Most of the time.

What makes you happiest?

Good friends, nine food, theatre, books, conversation. Cuddles.

Do you have faith in yourself?

Yes. If I don't have faith in myself, who will?

Oh, my challenges are going well. I'm up to date with the Abs Challenge, I've managed to walked one way to work every day, the greens smoothies are going well and I'm still throwing out five things a day quite happily. I'm rather proud of myself for keeping to this.

Right better catch that plane....

Happy travels! And good luck with the writing.

Good luck with your goals. Throwing out 5 things a day sounds like a great idea.

I like the taste of Tonic Water, too. Even without the gin.

Your ability to toss five things a day is a good goal. It works!
