I've Been Tagged ....

I have been tagged by Sharon. Thanks Sharon ... I really do love doing tags, they are so much fun !!

What were the three things you wanted to be when you were growing up?
1 Teacher.
2 Computer Programmer.
3 Mother and Wife

You can relive one day from your childhood, what would it be?
Spending the day with family & friends down at Emerald Lake, here in Victoria ... Mum was operating a small boat with an outboard motor, when it started sinking. The lake was shallow, she remained in the boat, moving the steering doodah back and forward, as it sank. We were on shore, laughing ourselves silly. It was so hilarious ... she has never lived it down !!!

You have 2 minutes (and a mover with you if you need heavy lifting help) to grab 5 things from your home before it morphs into a polka dotted hobgoblin and hops away. What will you take)? (Food/drink/family/friends excluded)
1 Family photos
2 Toiletries bag full of toiletries
3 CDs and CD player (I don't have an Ipod!)
4 My cat
5 Laptop & Camera (they always go everywhere together !)

You have to paint one quote on your kitchen wall what will it be?
Kitchen closed due to illness ... the cook is sick of cooking !

What is the one thing you want to accomplished by the end of the year?
To have finished my web design course, and be able to design a web site of my own.

You are moving to the moon for one year and can only bring one flower with you. What flower will it be?
An Aloe Vera plant ... the juice and gel can be used for sun (moon) burn. (I know it's not a flower, but it can be kept in a pot !!)

You just received word that beside the one flower you can bring 5 books. What books would you bring?
1 The latest James Patterson
2 The latest Sue Grafton
3 A cookbook ... "Cooking On The Moon"
4 A blank journal to write all my experiences in (oooh, wonder if I can bring a pen ?)
5 A photo album (that's a book, isn't it), with all my favourite family photos in it.

Tagging 3 lucky people
1 Maysiemae
2 Michelle
3 Connie
I'm gonna make it 4 lucky people.... Green Eyed Girl

Well, that's me folks.

Hope you are all having a great day. It is quite warm here today ... about 35ºC (around 95ºF). I am sitting inside, with the airconditioner on.

It's been a nice day so far ... I spent a couple of hours this morning with Maysiemae, helping her get more familiar with some of the finer points of Blogger (don't know how much help I really was, as I am still learning myself !!). Afterwards, I went to the local shopping mall to do some groceries, and ran into a couple of friends ... stopped for a chat (of course, you didn't think I'd be anti-social, did you !!). Now I am playing on the computer, and shortly I will need to head off to pick up Chicky from school. After that we both head off to German school, where Chicky does lessons, and I am a volunteer helper mum - listening to the kids read in German. When we get home from there (around 7.30pm, I will cook dinner and spend some time with Hubby, who has been doing a 12 hour shift today. Once he has fallen asleep (probably on the couch !!!), I will probably jump back on the computer to blog some more. It's nothing for me to be sitting at the computer until midnight, quite a few nights of the week. I am such a computer-geek !!

Anyway, take care of yourselves, everyone.

Bye for now,

Bar Bar A said...

What a fun list! It's amazing how much you can learn about a person when they get tagged! I love James Patterson too. I think I am behind on him because I always wait for paperbacks to come out. Which is the latest one you've read?

Meow said...

Christina, I love doing them, too. It's always interesting reading about others, too. Yep, I do need an Ipod !!

Barbara, James Patterson is cool. Can't remember which one I read last, but they have been all out of order, as I borrow them from the library !!

Have a great weekend, ladies, Take care, Meow

True Blue Guy said...

My first visit here and I learnt a lot about you - I guess you became 3, but did ya become 1 & 2 from the three things you wanted to be when you were growing up?

You need an ipod ;-) - I now wonder how I ever lived without one.

For a long time now I've wanted to learn a language - German,Spanish and French were in my choice set - I plan to start soon :-)

Connie and Rob said...

Us geeks have to stick together. It is 1:06 am. and I am so tired. I really need to go to bed for heaven sakes.

I so would love to be tagged but I already did this list on February 9th. Sorry!!!

I think you should create a new list and pass it around...never may never get to bed.

Hugs, Connie

Meow said...

True Blue Guy, Thanks for visiting, it's always nice to have new visitors. Yes, I did become 3, and in a small way, 2, as well. And, Yes, I do need an Ipod.

Connie, ooops, sorry, should've checked first. Never mind, I actually tagged 4, instead of 3, anyway. Maybe I will create a new list ... but not today !!!

Take care, everyone, Meow

Badoozie said...

wow, you are a geek on computers, i'll have to throw a few questions your way. and what a nice friend you are to help her. i keep thinking daisymae. but thats not her name.

angel, jr. said...

tags are fun to read. They give you some insight of the writer.

Viamarie said...

Hi there! I am visiting from Michele's. Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Chloe said...

i love the fact that you'd save your bag of cosmetics. I'd do that too!

Jamie Dawn said...

I bet you would like to relive that day on Emerald Lake. What a riot!!!
I think most moms get sick of cooking! But, I never get sick of eating.

Meow said...

Susie, OK I'll take a fork, too (I'll hide it in my book !!).
Yep, I am a computer geek (or Nerd, as we say it here !!). Maysiemae is enjoying blogging so far ... hope she stays !!

Angel, they are fun to read ... why don't you do this one?!?!

Viamarie, thank you ... I hope you do too !!

Chloe, oh yes ... wouldn't go anywhere without my deodorant, hairspray, eyeliner, lippy .........

Jamie, it was hilarious ... just watching her still trying to steer the boat as it was going down ... we literally almost wet ourselves with laughter.

Thanks everyone, have a wonderful weekend, take care, Meow

Clare said...

Meow said...

Clare, it was so funny. It's great fun doing these lists, don't you think ? Take care, Meow
