I was tagged

CardiffScot from Confessions of a Somewhat Confused Scot has tagged me in this 8 meme.  She has given me 8 questions to answer after which I get to tag 8 other people and ask them 8 questions as well.

The questions I have to answer are:

1) Have you ever had any part of your body surgically removed? Yes.  My gallbladder.

2) What is your favourite quote? I don’t have a favourite one most of the time but today I really like Pooh Bear’s You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem and smarter than you think.

3) Where in the world would you most like to visit? Wales, Cornwall etc. Places from the Arthurian Legends.

4) Where in the world would you most like to live? I really don’t mind the city where I currently live.  I can’t really see myself living elsewhere.

5) What's the best book you've ever read? I guess it depends how you define best. I really enjoyed the Lord of the Rings trilogy.  I read it at least once a year for about 10 years.

6) What's your favourite tipple? As this post shows I don't drink much alcohol.  But when I do indulge I would choose Strongbow Sweet. It’s cider.

7) What's your pet peeve? Judgemental people.  Especially people who seem to think that they need to share their views with the world when it’s not relevant or necessary.

8) Where were you born? Sydney, Australia.

I am going to tag some of my newer blog finds.

Kimberly from All Work And No Play Makes Mommy Go Something Something

Diane from Be Still a Minute

Heidi from Heaven is a Bookstore

Debby from Just Breathe

Allison from Life in A Pink Fibro

Jammie from The Neat Things in Life

The Bag Lady from Confessions from a Paper Bag

Deb from Diminishing Deb

Here are the questions I want you to answer:

  1. How do you / will you know when you are all grown up?
  2. As a child what did you wnat to be when your grew up and are you doing it?
  3. You could have an entire day 24 hours to do whatever you wanted (no expense spared).  So what would you do?
  4. Someone invents a new cocktail and they want to name it after you.  What are the main ingredients?
  5. How many blogs are you currently following or subscribed to?
  6. Why did you start blogging and is the reason you started still relevant?
  7. What is your favourite item of clothing?
  8. If you had to give up blogging or chocolate what would you chose? Is it a hard choice?

Yay! So glad you wanted to do this. I don't have a gallbladder either, had it out about 18 months ago and never looked back. :-)

Thanks so much for the tag - I must warn you that it usually takes me a while to psych up for a meme, but I get there eventually. I am a massive LOTR fan too. :-)

Kimberly said...

Aw thanks for the tag!
PS. My husband would love you cause you drink Strongbow!

Diane said...

Okay... I may sound like a great big dummy here, but what exactly is a tipple? Cause I've never heard that term before! I'm guessing it's just a cocktail/alcholic drink?
Don't have my gallbladder anymore either...had it removed 10 years ago. About the only thing worse than gallstone attacks is labor~ :0
I will do my questions this weekend. Thanks for thinking of me!

Ooo, fun! Thanks for tagging me! Can't wait to work on this.

And you've read the entire LOTR trilogy once a year for 10 years? I'm impressed!

Loved your answers ... thanks for sharing. Along with your #7, I'd have to add hypocritical people. Double standards drive me nuts! =)
