The Mad Hatter's Meme

So, I've been to see the writer of my favourite book read this year speak, which was excellent. now I'm waiting from some friends to come out so that they can have a ride in my car. Men are funny like that  - always wanting to see a new car... they really are terrible.

Anyway, now back from the said trip in the car, as well as cooking dinner and sorting out a friend's CV here I am.

Questions, as always, are from Sunday Stealing.

What’s the meaning or inspiration of your blog’s title?

It came from that old saying, "Denial is a big river in Egypt". I am the queen of denial. It fitted, especially as I started the blog thinking could run a marathon. Like yeah. Nah.

What do you consider your biggest strength?

Probably my resilience, kindness and courage.

What do you consider your biggest weakness?

I get bored very, very easily.

Tell us why we should like your favorite band.

Because they are GOD! The Pixies invented the loud-soft-loud sound. The very best of rock.

Who is your favorite model of all-time? Why?

Model of what? Clive Owen has done some modelling.
Models are not something of which I take much notice.

Does it bother you when people talk about their pets? Why?

Not at all. I talk about my best mate's cat and sister's dog all the time.

Tell us about your favorite holiday.

If you're meaning vacation, I had a great time in Bali earlier this year doing a lot of yoga and mending a broken heart. If you mean public holiday (I believe the Americans amongst us call public holidays holidays) I rather like Anzac Day. A day to reflect. It's better than Australia Day - or Invasion Day as I call it under my breath.

What was the last fabulous meal that you ate? Where were you?

We went to Movida, an great quality Spanish restaurant for my birthday. That was a fortnight ago.

What’s your lucky number and why?

64. I like the Beatles' song.

What are five things you hate?

Conservative politicians
Psychological violence in films

What are five things you love?

Most animals
Open fires
Long walks

Tell us a secret (you can because other than us, who’ll read this anyway?)

I'm not wearing a bra at the moment.

What is the favorite body feature of yourself?

I'm rather fond of my ankles and eyes. Both are good and not to be complained about.

Is there a tattoo that you want? If you don’t have one, gun-to-your-head so you have to get one, what would it be?

I have a very small one already, and though I don't want another particularly, I'd probably get the World Wildlife Fund Panda somehere out of sight.

What do you love about yourself?

My kindess and intelligence. I don't know how I could be me without these features.

What do you hate about yourself?

I dislike (not hate) the fact I don't have the patience and fortitude to lose weight and keep it off.

Who is someone you miss?

My friend Reindert who lives in Boston. A great friend, we talk regularly, but he and his wife are awesome people.

Vanilla is one of the few scents I can tolerate without it sending me into a sneezing spasm. Good choice.

Open fires--that's a good one!

On my last birthday I turned 64. Besides not believing it, I keep sing the song to my wife. I'm lucky shew hasn't thrown something at me! Thanks for playing...

I love open fires and vanilla flavor and scent, too.
Read all you answers greedily, and especially loved what you said about the title ofyour blog, and how your guy friends wanted a ride in your new car. True true! They are funny that way.
