Do Re Meme

Rivergirl (and others) have tagged me in this getting to know you meme, I know I am last on the bandwagon here, even Liz Miss Anti-Meme joined in! So, here I go.....

What are your top 3 favorite foods?
Steak, cheese and Coca Cola.

What was the last book you read and would you recommend it?
The last book I read was "Until I Find You" by John Irving. Yes, I would recommend it, anything by John Irving is good by me, his books are like cozy old comforters you can just wrap yourself in and snuggle down for the night.

What are your top 3 favorite places?
Caye Caulker Belize, New York City and any beach in the Caribbean.

What was the last lie you told?
I told Max there was no chocolate but when his back was turned I gobbled down a Bubu Lubu.

What are your favorite 3 sports (to watch or participate in)?
I am not much of a sports fan at all. My last few years in Toronto I did become an avid Raptors (basketball) fan. I despise hockey and don't like soccer much, any game that can last more than an hour and remain scoreless is BOOOOOOOORRRRRRIIING.

What was the last movie you watched and would you recommend it?
We just got back from seeing "Horton Hears a Who". I might recommend it if it weren't DUBBED.

List 3 things you can see outside of the nearest window.
Lots of ivy, a few lizards and a cat perched on a ledge.

Where was the last place you went?
MmmCinemas at Paseo Cancun to see Horton.

What are your top 3 favorite “good causes” or charities?
While I am a lefty at heart, I am not very active in the charity scene. I think my priorities have changed since moving here. In Toronto I supported PFLAG and NORML, but here there are some problems that need fixing first like the issue of street animals, poverty and education. I wish I could be more like Rivergirl, she devotes a lot of her time to some great causes.

What was the last thing you did for someone else?
When is the last time anything was for me!? Ok seriously? I helped a student write a cover letter in English for a job application.

Name 3 places you have never been that you want to visit.
Greece, the South Pacific and Egypt.

What was the last thing you threw in the garbage/recycling?
Cigarette butts.

Name 3 things on your bedside table.
Books, books and books.

Describe or name the last piece of art you looked at.
"Iguana" by Max. On paper (and the table cloth), in blue magic marker.

What are the top 3 things that your job requires you to think about?
Grammar, pronunciation and vocabulary.

What was the last musical or theatrical event that you attended?
Oh wow. Um, let's see. Do mariachis count? If not, it has been quite a while. We went to Los Cuatro Elementos last year and saw some live trova (Latin folk music) performances. This meme has reminded me how much we enjoyed it and that we should do it again.

What are the first 3 things you would do if you won the lottery?
Buy champagne, throw a party for my friends and get my breast reduction. Hey, I gotta be honest here!

Describe or name the last serious injury or illness you had?
Illness would be having salmonella and amoebas at the same time. Injury was that damned cat bite.

What are the top 3 things that you wish you could do?
I wish I could make money without working, travel more often and I really wish I could scuba dive (I discovered that ear problems won't allow me to do more than snorkel, booooo)

What was the last thing that someone said to you that you will remember forever?
I love YOU more mommy.

Gosh, in terms of tagging I feel like so many of you in my blogosphere have already done this one! I will toss it out to Theresa, Jennifer, Heather in Paradise and Brice if they feel inclined to participate.

A couple of comments:

John Irving s definitely one of my favorite authors...I too read "Until I Find You." I agree that he's very comfortable, but this one was my least favorite! Not that it stopped me from reading it. ;)

I see you broke down and saw Horton...subtitled or dubbed?

Love your last lie...that's a good one!

Manolo said...

C'mon! No hockey and no futbol what kind of crossover Canuck are ya'? At least you are a Raptors fan. Did you know that we now have a "professional" soccer team on the MLS (the soccer league from the states) Go Toronto F.C.! already starting their second worse season ever!
I would've capitalized the MORE in your last answer ;-)

Thanks for doing our little meme!

Theresa in Mèrida said...

Oh, I didn't even notice my name on the list! LOL, I ended up doing it for my friend Carol as an email because she sent it to me too. My answers were dumb,too dumb to post.

Melissa- I think I liked "Until I Find You" so much because he set the Toronto sections in two areas that I actually lived in. (The Toronto ties are always a big plus for me with John Irving.) Yes, we saw Horton, dubbed of course. And yes, I lie to Max about the existence (or absence) of junk food all the time. :)

Manolo- Yes, I knew there was a soccer team now, one of my regular commenters has a husband who plays in the league. ;-) I would have accented the "more" but it was how Max said it, we were having a battle "I love YOU more" "No, I love YOU more" "No I love YOU more" kind of thing. Yeah yeah, sappy, sorry.

Rivergirl- My pleasure, it was a good one.

Theresa- I saw your post, loved it! Your friend Carol actually emailed me with some fine compliments and her own version, I was delighted (and shall be responding forthwith).

Yay Canuck for doing what I told her to do!
