A Meme .... Can't remember where I pinched it from!

My unread Blog lines list is enormous!!!! So I have no idea who I pinched this from,
but it seemed a snazzy little meme, so here goes....

Make a list of things you can see without getting up:
1) The laptop
2) The fan, the air conditioner is broken aragggg
3) My sleeping baby

What were you like when you were five?
Goodness, that is a stretch. My twin and I were serious Strawberry Shortcake fans!

What color is your bedroom?
Boring cream I have to admit, but the cedar blinds are nice.

What was the last thing you bought?
Japanese take away, my son who refuses to eat his vegetables is happy to down a dozen cucumber sushi (no fish) rolls wrapped in seaweed, go figure?

What are you listening to right now?
The fan. It is too loud! And my poor little pumpkin has a cough.

What is your favorite color, and has it always been your favorite color?
Army green, I have never really been drawn to this colour before. I have always been a red and black girl, although black will always be my staple wardrobe colour. (it's slimming)

What song are you currently listening to a lot? Jason Mraz - I'm Yours. I love this song, It has been the inspiration for the novel I'm working on and I just listen to it over and over.

If you could have any super power, what would it be? Oh easy, I would be a Vampire - I realise that isn't really a super power, more a creature with super powers, but hell I'm gonna bend the question to suit.

What was the last reality TV show you watched? Oh I'm embarrassed (Americas Next Top Model)

What is your most challenging goal right now? To finish my novel but the end of 2009.

If you could have a house–totally paid for, fully furnished–anywhere in the world, where would you want it to be? It would be a toss up between The Greek Islands or something overlooking a Piazza in Italy, preferably in the middle somewhere.

Favorite vacation spot? That depends on the weather. Winter - has to be mountains, knitting and hot chocolate. Summer - Noosa - a frozen daiquiri, a banana chair and my husband.

What is your favorite children’s book? That is really tough, I have so many! Peepo is right up there and The pimpernel Seed, I have looked everywhere for this book...and can't find it.

Name one thing you just can’t resist no matter how bad it is for you: Fresh marinated curd cheese ( I don't eat dairy by the way) Italian bread rubbed with garlic and sprinkled with sea salt, drizzled with olive oil and lightly grilled. Then more olive oil and Balsamic vinegar to dip, slabs of Parmesan and an ridiculous amount of dark chocolate. I think I might need a midnight snack :)

If you could meet anyone famous - dead or alive - who would it be? Alfred Hitchcock and Edgar Allen Poe.

If you could have any job in the world, what would it be? Gosh, as daggy as is really sounds, I like what I am doing now- being a mum and writing. Except in this daydream I would have more time to write and would be snapped up by a publisher in a wink :)

Scarlet! I switched from PC to laptop at Christmas, cleaned the old PC (for house use) and didn't take my "favorites" thus lost several blog connections.
Delighted you stopped by, and also enjoyed this meme you did.

It is difficult to imagine the needing an A/C at the moment; we are at zero degrees C right now and the sun has become a tease, showing up for moments only now and then.

Glad to hear you're working away at the book when you have time. And loving every minute with the babies. Best job in the world!
