The OLOGY Meme

I've just got back from Adelaide after a lovely weekend there with family and friends. I'm very tired. There are a few things I'd rather be doing than this blog, but I have my silly pride.

I will say that I'd rather be writing my novel and enjoying what looks like will be my last few days of holiday.

Oh well. Questions (and lame ones they are at that) are from Sunday Stealing.


What is your least favorite salad dressing?  Not fond of Blue Cheese dressing.

What is your least favorite fast food restaurant?  Never seen the point of Red Rooster - a Melbourne thing.

What is your favorite sit-down restaurant? There used to be a South African place in Caulfield that I adored. It closed. Love Cumulus Inc in the city.

On average, what would cause you to flirt with the server? He's have to be pretty cute - and be holding ice cream. I don't flirt with people.

What food could you eat every day just to "get along"?  Baked beans on toast. Love them.

What pizza toppings would make you hurl?  Banana

What food is likely to get you "in the mood..."?  Mood for what? Oh that. Lobster - actually any seafood.

What is your favorite type of gum to get off your shoe? None. Ew.


Number of contacts you'd never let your significant other see on your cell phone? I don't have a significant other but there is nobody that dodgy in my phone list.

Number of contacts in your email address book that are exes? Two. But they are now friends so it's fine.

Do you judge others about the wallpaper on their computer? Yes, but I don't say anything about it.

What is your favorite technology from the past that is now obsolete? Very fond of my DVD player. Still use it.

Do you have stuff on your computer that you'd never want someone to see? Yes, but we're not going to talk about that. Lots of very dodgy writing.


Are you right-handed or left-handed? Ambidextrous with a tendency to use the right hand a bit more.

Do you like your smile? No. I look like Grimace.

What's your best feature? Ankles and eyes.

Have you ever had anything removed from your body? Yes. Far too many sebaceous cysts from my scalp, two wisdom teeth and a large cyst from my fallopian tubes. Not doing too bad really.

Which of your five senses do you think is keenest? All are pretty keen but my hearing is good and I've got a keen sense of touch.

When was the last time you had a cavity? About ten years ago.

What is the heaviest item you lifted last? Deadlifted around 80 kgs (about 200 lbs) in the gym a few weeks back.

Have you ever been knocked unconscious? No, thank goodness.


If you could, would you wanna know the day you were going to die?  No. That's one of life's great mysteries.

Is love for real? I hope to find out one day, but I do believe, yes, love is true.

If you could change your first name, what would you change it to? I'd love to be an Elizabeth or something exotic like a Jayanthi or Serendipity.

What color do you think looks best on you? Red. Bright red.

Have you ever swallowed a non-food item by mistake? The odd fly. Trap of living in Australia. Consider it protein.

Have you ever saved someone's life? No. Thank goodness for that too.

Has someone ever saved yours? No, but some people have thankfully got me back on track.

DAREOLOGY - Stupid questions.

Would you walk naked down a public street for $100,000? Probably.

Would you kiss a member of the same sex for $100? Why not?

Would you cut off one of your little fingers for $200,000? No. That would make typing hard.

Would you never blog again for $50,000? Dunno, could I blog under a pseudonym?

Would you pose naked in a magazine for $250,000?  No - sod that.

Would you drink an entire bottle of hot sauce for $1000? Probably not.

Would you give up watching television for a year for $25,000? Probably not, though if I could watch stuff from the web, then maybe.


What is in your left pocket? No pocket, so nothing.

Do you have hardwood or carpet in your house? Carpet.

Do you sit or stand in the shower? Stand - we have real showers in Australia, not English showers where you sit in the bath.

Could you live with roommates? Not again. Maybe with a partner.

How many pairs of flip flops do you own? Three. One black, one white, and one with sparkles on the top.

Where were you born? Adelaide, Australia.

Last time you had a run-in with the cops? A few years ago, I was in the car, my friend was speeding. Also had to go see the cops after some arsehole ran into my car three years ago.

What do you want to be when you grow up? A writer.


Friend you talked to? I'm talking to a friend on messenger as I write this.

Last person you called? The parking people at the airport to pick me and Teddy up to take us back to the car. Oh, and my brother in law for his birthday yesterday.

Person you hugged? Mum as I was leaving her party this afternoon.


Number? 64 - because of this.

Color? Bright Red, Cobalt Blue, Teal Green.

Season? Autunm, followed closely by Winter.


Missing someone? Yes, but we're trying hard not to.

Mood?  Level, but a bit tired.

Listening to? The hum of the air conditioner and the telly.

Watching? Friday's episode of Dr Blake. Phwoar!

Worrying about? Lots of things, but I don't want to articulate them. Don't want to give my worries too much energy.


First place you went this morning? To breakfast in Victor Harbor with Teddy and my uncle. It was lovely.

What can you not wait to do? Go back to Bali.

What's the last movie you saw? Brooklyn. Great film. Saw that Friday night.

When was the last time you got caught cheating? Never. I don't really cheat unless it's at Monopoly.

Are you a sexy person? I don't think so.

Now that the survey's (or meme) done what are you going to do? Have a shower and go to bed.

Hi Pand,

A very silly meme. I haven't done one for a while - and I might steal it.

I love my Walkman. And also like, "The Wet"
And, though silly, this meme was a was a good distraction.
It is SO awesome that you dead lifted that amount of weight! Keep lifting!

Nice answers. A bit long( the questionnaire) but it's always interesting to see what people will put down.
