Meme times 2



Elle at Feeding My Enthusiasms tagged me for this meme. Thanks Elle. I have to answer the following questions.

1) LAST MOVIE U SAW IN A THEATRE?

Get Smart. Before that was Kung Fu Panda. Oh dear, this is sounding bad!! Before that was Moliere, so see I do have some sophistimication.

2) WHAT BOOK ARE U READING?

Oh crumbs. The Devil Doctor - a Fu Manchu novel. I know, I know. The blatant racism is galling. Put that entirely to one side, and these books are so bad as to be almost brilliant.

3) FAVOURITE BOARD GAME?

The way things are going I should say Hungry Hippo. In fact, I rarely play board games, but I do like scrabble.

4) FAVOURITE MAGAZINE?

I had a mischevious urge to say Zoo Weekly. But it is in fact Delicious.

5) FAVOURITE SMELLS?

Freshly baked bread, freshly baked biscuits, freshly mown grass, fresh flowers.

6) FAVOURITE SOUNDS?

Magpies warbling, rain on the rooftop, laughter.

7) WORST FEELING IN THE WORLD?

Knowing that I have let somebody down.

8) WHAT IS THE FIRST THING YOU THINK OF WHEN U WAKE?

If it's a weekday it usually goes something like this - I want to go back to sleep, I don't want to get up, go away world.

If it's a weekend or holidays it's usually - what's the weather like and what's for breakfast.

9) FAVOURITE FAST FOOD PLACE?

Lemongrass Thai for pad thai noodles. I also like Kingsley Chicken for their chips - but I don't eat them very often.

10) FUTURE CHILDS NAME?

Girl - Murgatroid Snufflepops

Boy - Egbert Wrigglebott

11) FINISH THIS STATEMENT—’IF I HAD A LOT OF MONEY I’D......

Travel the world, renting little cottages here and there, trying out all the local eateries and produce and specialities.

12) DO U DRIVE FAST?

Ummm yes (hangs head in shame).

13) DO U SLEEP WITH A STUFFED ANIMAL?

No, I really don't like stuffed animals.

14) STORMS–COOL OR SCARY?

Cool. I love storms.

15) WHAT WAS YOUR FIRST CAR?

A Honda. It was over 20 years old when I bought it and it ran fautlessly for another seven years.
16) FAVOURITE DRINK?

Otai a fruit coconut drink from Tonga. YUM!!

17) FINISH THIS STATEMENT-IF I HAD THE TIME I WOULD…

Buy a car and drive across the United States.

18) DO YOU EAT THE STEMS ON BROCCOLI?

Yes. Why? Am I not supposed to!! Am I going to die now?

19) IF YOU COULD DYE YOUR HAIR ANY OTHER COLOUR, WHAT WOULD BE YOUR CHOICE?

If I had the nerve I would choose green. Not kermit the frog green you understand. A nice tasteful shade.

20) NAME ALL THE DIFFERENT CITIES/TOWNS U HAVE LIVED IN?

Pick some for me. They will probably be more interesting.

21) FAVOURITE SPORTS TO WATCH?

Cricket and tennis.

22) ONE NICE THING ABOUT THE PERSON WHO SENT THIS TO YOU?

I don't know much about Elle, but I do know that she posts the kind of recipes I like. I'm always thinking 'oooh I would love to try that'.

23) WHATS UNDER YOUR BED?

Dust, odd socks and stuff. Even I don't want to know what's under there!!

24) WOULD U LIKE TO BE BORN AS YOURSELF AGAIN??

Yes. But it woud be even better if I was the heiress to a great fortune.

25) MORNING PERSON OR NIGHT OWL?

Neither. I need a lot of sleep.

26) OVER EASY OR SUNNY SIDE UP?

I like runny yolks. So whichever one of those that is.

27) FAVOURITE PLACE TO RELAX?

On the lounge with a good book, tasty snacks and something nice to drink.

28) FAVOURITE PIE?

Apple.

29) FAVOURITE ICE CREAM FLAVOUR?

What? I can only choose one!! The pressure!! Mint choc chip. Or caramel. Or cherry coconut chocolate. Or....

30) OF ALL THE PEOPLE U HAVE TAGGED, WHO IS THE MOST LIKELY TO RESPOND FIRST?

I'm not tagging anyone. Feel free to participate if you wish. Really, go right ahead. Do!!

The next meme is kind of a follow on from an earlier meme. If you read it you will see. The less I say about it the better.



Oh hai, I am the food mill in Kitchen Chez KJ. When I heard that KJ had let that complete imbecile - the toaster - answer a meme, well........ I mean why him?? What makes him so special?? Big noting, two bit nothing special.... ‘I’m an actor’ my a...

Anyway, after a bit of healthy discussion (okay, a few grinding discs maaaaaay have been thrown across the kitchen) KJ said I can do one too. Fortunately, Dolores from Chronicles in Culinary Curiosity also tagged KJ for this meme. So here goes.

What was I doing ten years ago?

I guess I was hanging out as polymers or chemicals or some such. I’m not into the past. I’m all about the future.

What are five things on my to do list for today?

Well I generally sleep in until lunchtime. Then I’ll wander over to the tupperware corner. They always have a poker game going. You’ve got to watch yourself though. There’s a lot of odd mismatched lids that have gone a bit strange. They skulk around in the corners a lot. And they don’t muck around. I got in a bit over my head a few months back. I had to borrow off the spice grinder to keep things sweet. He always seems to have a lot of ready cash. I do wonder....

Anyway, then I will rice some potatoes for dinner. Then I’ve got a hot date with the magimix. Read it and weep bread boy!!!



Snacks I enjoy

Well I’m a veggie man. Mainly potatoes and tomatoes. I’m well known for my light fluffy potatoes. I did some apples a few days back. Superb if I do say so myself.

Things I would do if I was a billionaire

I would turn myself into a post-modern sculpture and live in the Louvre.

Then I would commission an autobiography of my life. Of course the book would be turned into a musical. Naturally, there would be a movie version of the musical. Followed by a TV series of the movie, based on the musical.

5 places I have lived

Well before I moved to the cupboard under the sink, I was a highly esteemed item in Cooking Coordinates - a select kitchenware store specialising in quality cookware and ingredients. I don’t slum it in department stores unlike some appliances I could mention.

I was great friends with the Le Creuset range. We're both European after all, we have a lot in common.



5 jobs I’ve had

Well, I’m a food mill. I mill. That’s what I do? I’m a highly trained specialist. I can do fine, medium or coarse. I don’t chop. I don’t grate. And I certainly don’t mash.

So there you have it. I'm sure you've enjoyed getting to know me. People usually do.

KJ said not to tag anyone specific. Anyone who wants to answer can join in.

There is a free spirited theme running through these memes...and what would be a tasteful shade of green for hair?? Love that your food mill plays poker...probably played chess with the Le Creuset rnage at the specialty store.
