Meme Madness

Okay, so I am acutely aware that I have been falling way behind on completing Memes. I have so many to catch up on, so thought I would make a start now.

The first one is from Crystal at Choc Mint Girl, called "The Interview"

"Remove 1 question from below, and add in your personal question, make it a total of 20 questions, then tag 8 people in your list, list them out at the end of this post. Notify them in their chat box that he/she has been tagged. Whoever does the tag will have blessings from all."

1. At what age do you wish to marry?
I hadn't entirely planned to still be single at 35, so I'll just settle with getting married at some point.

2. If you have the chance, what would you probably say to your beloved one?
Mmmmmmm, so many things to say but nobody to hear it...

3. If you were to be stranded on a desert island, who are the 3 blog buddies you would take with you? Why?
This is an impossible one to answer, each blog buddy has their own qualities. I have tried to whittle it down to three but can't...

4. Where is the place that you want to go the most?
Anywhere but here...

5. If you can have 1 dream to come true, what would it be?

To get rid of my darned headaches.... since my accident a year ago, I have had one almost continuously. Putting that aside, I would wish to be happy.

6. What's the best compliment you've ever received? (Or you can list some of the memorable ones if it's too hard to pick one)
My wonderful Uncle, who was also my Godfather, died a week ago. At the funeral on 27th December, my Aunt told me that he thought a lot of me... ...and that is a compliment that I will always hold close to my heart and will never ever forget.

7. What are you afraid to lose the most?
My parents and my sisters.... ...I know I do not always show it, but they mean so much to me.

8. If you win $1 million, what would you do?

$1 million dollars = £500,000. That doesn't buy much these days. I would give some to my family and then buy a larger house with the rest.

9. If you meet someone that you love, would you confess to him/her?
I would, when the time is right. Experience has taught me to be sure first.

10. List out 3 good points of the person who tagged you.
Crystal, is a very caring and compassionate girl. She has the ability to bring colour and sunshine to even the darkest of days, and she is always there for you.

11. What are the requirements that you wish from your other half?
That's a hard question when I haven't even met them! I guess it is honesty, trust and to be themselves (and to accept that I am always!!!)

12. Which type of person do you hate the most?
A liar. The one thing I cannot tolerate is a liar.

13. Are you the type of person who will forgive and forget easily?
Yes, I can forgive and forget. Life is far too short not to.

14. What is the thing that will make you think he/she is bad?
Being judgemental.

15. Christmas is coming, who do you like to celebrate with?
Well, in this case, Christmas is just over. But I can say my family - they are great people to be with.

16. What do you think is the most important thing in your life?
My health.

17. My Question is "If you could turn back time and be at one historical event, which would it be?

The "1914 Christmas Day Truce". On Christmas Day, drawn by empathy for the men in the trenches of the opposing side, both the German and English soldiers cautiously emerge from their dugouts. At first they exchange gifts, then a football is produced, and the two sides come together to play an historical game in No Man’s Land.

The reason I have chosen this moment in history, is that it serves as a reminder that war is really between the governments & leaders, and not the people.

18. Which actress or actors you would like be to?
I can't see the point in wanting to be anyone else... I am having a hard enough time being!!!

19. It would be 2008 in a few days, do you have a new year's resolution?
I have a few to make this year. I may post about them soon....

20. Do you have any plans for tomorrow?
Not sure yet...

I have so many memes to catch up on, so I will not tag anybody as you will all be inundated with! Instead, in my usual way, I will open to the floor and invite anyone who fancies giving it a go.

Cheerio for now!

Awww...lots of thanks for your sweet comment on me, Graham. ;D

I have several expressions when going through your answers he he...

I wish your headaches would go away, and I sure hope you'll meet your other half soon who'll accept that you're always right...LOL!!

Well, I just love the way you answer this interview, Graham, especially no. 6. :)

Thanks again and a BIG hug to you!!!

Hey Graham! Headaches.. i know the feeling - i suffer from headaches more or less all of the time, some bareable and some completely unbarable.. however - i have found the reason behind it! my contraceptive pill.. i have come off it now and have no headaches at all!! not even when im hungover!! now - im pretty sure that is not the cause of yours! but, do you take paracetemol? try and get out of the habit of taking them as often (if you take them at all) cause your body gets so used to the tablets that if you dont take one then it actually causes your headache as your body is detoxing from the medication.. make sence?!?!

Take care x

Hey Crystal :) Thank you for your kind comments too :) I'm sure my headaches will pass at somepoint. Thank you for the meme, it was a nice one to do :)

Hello Meleah rebeccah, I sometimes worry that I reveal too much on my blog.... I wonder if people think I'm slightly mad or!
A very warm Happy New Year to you too, my friend!!!

Azzy!!! I look forward to reading your answers!!! Best wishes to you :)))

Linda, a very special Happy New Year to you too!!!!

Hiya Rachel :) I hope thingsa are going well in your new place. You are correct - I don't take the contraception pill...LOL!!!! My headaches are the result of the large bang to the head I received during my fall over the edge of the quarry last December (plus the fact that I went back to work about 2 months too early after having my shoulder replaced, subsequently I haven't really properly recovered mentally). My problem is that I very very rarely take any painkillers, so don't get any restbite from the headaches - which ends up driving me up the wall. I'm going to start taking some occassionally to see if the break from the headaches helps reduce them. On that note, I welcome any suggestions from anybody for a good headache cure (and I'll punch anybody that suggests stamping on my!)

Take care xxx

Everything is so expensive nowadays. £500,000/ $1,000,000 is barely enough for a decent sized house!

I used to suffer from headaches all the time. I met a guy who taught me about reflexology. Try massaging your thumb down to your wrists. It worked with me. I do it unconsciously now...


Traveller said...

I was going to read about your travels, intrigued by your profile but ended up reading the post about you.

Marjie said...

Good questions, excellent answers. I think I might give this one a go given you've noticed....I love great Q&As to post. So yes, this shall be my first meme of the year...that's a promise ;)

With that thought, although I know I'm about 4 days late, Happy New Year m'dear! Hope 2008 is treatin' you fabulous so far :)

Marjie said...

hey graham...

as promised, my first meme of the year is posted. i think i'm getting better at this game, aren't I? anyway, please check it out when you get a chance.


Getty72 said...

Elise, I agree, house prices are silly in England now. £500,000 dosen't buy much at all anymore. I appreciate your advice on the headaches, I will certainly try that. Thank you so much xx

Traveller.... oh no!!! You don't want to be reading about me..LOL!!! I hope you enjoyed the read.

Marjie, your answers to the meme were wonderful, but that is no suprise coming from you ;) xxoo

Max, awwww thank you for your funny comments. I always enjoy reading your words. I hope you are well and having a great time. Warmest regards, G x
