The Easy A-Z Meme

You'd think that Sunday Stealing would have an Australia Day Meme to celebrate Australia Day - but no.

But these questions aren't too bad - so I'll give them a go.

A. What are your favorite smells?

We covered this last week.

B. Can you go a whole day without caffeine?

Yes - I've been forced to give it up - and I'm managing really well. I miss it, but I'm not as testy.

C. Who knows more about you than anyone else?

Hmmm. Probably the girls in my dream group, Jonella and Blarney - but they know different things.

D. What song did you last listen to?

I still have Alanis Morrissette playing in the car - and the last song that played was this:

E. Do you wear socks to bed?


F. Can you change a car tire?

Yes - I grew up in the country - I can do these things - though I'll normally call the RACV (Auto Club Roadside Assist) if I'm in the city. I pay for it, may as well use it.

G. If you could choose one color to wear for a whole year, what color would you choose?

As much as I wear mostly black, if I could find stylish clothes in Peacock Blue, I'd go for it.

H. Do you cook often?

Not as much as I'd like to. Still cook 2-3 times a week. Made tiramisu this morning - turned out a treat.

I. What’s your least favorite season? 

Summer. Living in Australia, it gets too hot sometimes - those over 40 degree days (try 108 Farenheit) are just too much.

J. Can you sew?

Yes - not well, but I can do mending and use a sewing machine for easy jobs.

K. What is your favorite fruit?

Strawberries and mangoes

L. Are you health conscious?

In the gym 3-4 times a week, watch what I eat, don't smoke, don't drink much, don't use drugs - I think that's a yes.

M. Do you think you’re very conscious of the feelings of others or more self oriented?

I try to be conscious of the feelings of others. There are lapses, but I try.

N. Do you curse a lot?

One of the greatest things about being a middle aged woman is knowing the value of a well placed expletive. Bloody oath I do...

O. Do you remember lyrics easily?


P. Can you roll your tongue?


Q. Is there a certain food you often crave for no reason?

Only ice cream.

R. What was the last book you purchased?

For book group and on the Kindle - Lily Brett's "Lola Bensky". On paper, Michel Faber's "The Book of Strange New Things". Love both of these authors.

S. Where was your last vacation?

I went to Tasmania for Christmas, but my last proper holiday was last March when I went to Bali for a fornight.

T. Last movie you watched? Did you enjoy it?

I went and saw "Wild" last night with Jay. And I really enjoyed it . (Birdman and The Imitation Game are excellent too)

U. Think of your oldest friend. If you met them now do you think you would still become friends?

Geetangeli is one of my oldest friends. I reckon if we met now we'd be friends - she tells me I'm the female version of her husband.

V. Paris, London and New York… which one would you live in, which would you visit for a day, which would you visit for a fortnight?

I would live in London again - I'd like to live in London again.
I'd love to spend more time in New York, but I'd give that one a day.
My proviso for spending a fortnight in Paris is that I go with a lover or significant other. Love Paris. Just love Paris.

W. Do you usually sleep with your closet door open or closed?

I prefer it closed but it really doesn't bother me.

X. Have you ever broken a bone? If so, how did it happen?

Just a toe. Collected it on a door frame about 25 years ago. Was horrid.

Y. How do you like your eggs?

Poached. Or Benedict. Or in Shakshuka sauce with feta an olives on sourdough - but plain old poached is great too.

Z. What was your last argument about and who with?

I really can't remember.

Bali sounds like a fun place to vacation! Have a great Sunday!

We have the same feeling about where to live/visit/fortnight.

And I read recently that the two places that had the hottest weather last year were California (where I live) and Australia. I got a taste of Australia weather, but fortunately not 40.

That summer heat would drive me crazy! I couldn't take it.

I would like to visit your country sometime. It looks magnificent in pictures.

Jagged Little Pill was one of only four cassettes I had in my car when I drove across the USA in 1995/96... there is no finer driving music, IMO. There's something quite empowering about belting out You Oughta Know whilst driving on the wrong side of the road in a strange country.

(The other three cassettes were Presidents of the United States of America, Hootie & The Blowfish and the Friends soundtrack. Clearly, I was driving solo for the majority of the time.)
