I was tagged by [ profile] alice_day probably a month ago to do this. I love memes so I HAVE to do it!

The Rules:

1. People who have been tagged must write the answers on their blog and replace any question they dislike with a new, original question.

2. Tag six people. Don't refuse to do that. Don't tag who tagged you.

I tag anyone who wants to do this and also loves memes

01. Make a list of 5 things you can see without getting up.
Paul Guilfoyle's framed Firefighter Fund hockey jersey, TV, sleeping boy kitties, bulletin board with pics of PG, Richard Basehart, and Patrick Macnee, framed pic of House on Telegraph Hill movie poster with Richard Basehart and Valentina Cortese

02. How do you style your hair?
I don't style my hair, it styles me. However, the length covers the back of my neck, I have not short, not long bangs, and I put in lots of product so it doesn't go flat after I blow dry it.

03. What are wearing now?
Pink Life is Good T-shirt, either gray or green (it's a color blind thing) cargo shorts and these LL Bean sandle-shoe things.

04. What's your occupation?
Business/Finance Manager

05. What do you hear right now?
The laptop fan

06. What's your favorite guilty pleasure treat?
Red Velvet cupcakes (Summertime).

07. Are you hungry?

08. Write the first word that comes to mind.

09. Dog person or cat person?
If you've read my LJ, you'll know I'm a cat person.

10. What song is currently stuck in your head?
Rolling in the Deep by Adele

11. What was the last thing you bought?
2 pairs of Lucky Brand jeans and a belt (I bought them all at once so I'm counting that as a thing)

12. If you could afford to go anywhere in the world, where would you go?

13. Where do you see yourself in 5 minutes?
On my way to the garden center

14. Last book you read?
Nothing to Envy by Barbara Demick

15. What are you doing this weekend?
Getting highlights (hair), planting things in pots, possibly getting a facial at Elizabeth Arden if I get around to scheduling it, writing.

16. If you could play any musical instrument, which one would you play?
I'm going with [ profile] alice_day and saying Bagpipes. I've always loved them.

17. How are you?
I'm fan-freaking-tastic

18. What are you doing tomorrow?
Going to work. What I do at work will be decided once I open my email.

19. What are you looking forward to the most?
Not having a chalk line around me any time soon.

Only two more blogs and I have to admit, I'm really struggling. I've already deleted two attempts. I was hoping to be clever or contemplative and really, I got nothing. Maybe it's because I really wanted to write tonight so I'm feeling a little miffed at having to do this stupid blog. Yes, when things irritate me I call them stupid, whether they really are or not. I've actually enjoyed doing this for the most part and will not give [ profile] unwrittenkitten the stink eye for originally talking me in to doing this.

So for this next to the last entry (for November), I'll do a little meme that I'm sure exists somewhere but as far as I know, I'm making up.

1. Leave me a comment saying anything random, like your favorite lyric to your current favorite song. Or your favorite kind of sandwich. Something random. Whatever you like.

2. I respond by asking you five personal questions so I can get to know you better.

3. You WILL update your LJ with the answers to the questions.

4. You will include this explanation and offer to ask someone else in the post.

5. When others comment asking to be asked, you will ask them five questions.

The questions for me from [ profile] dreams_of_him:

1. Why Brass?
2. Is there anything you could eat every day for the rest of your life and never get tired of it?
3. If you could live anywhere, where would that be?
4. If you could change history and not ruin the future, what would you change and why?
5. What is your favorite memory?

IIRC, I was tagged by [ profile] mingsmommy for the 10 random things meme. Once you have been tagged, you have to write a blog with 10 random things, facts, goals, or habits about yourself. At the end, choose anyone you think may answer - to be tagged, listing their names & why you chose them. You can't tag a person who has tagged you.

10 Random Things )
bunchofgrapes: (Alex O - Caps)
For 50 days the Washington Capitals were dead last in the Eastern Conference. They fired their coach just before Thanksgiving (I was at his last game and the Caps were awful). Bruce Boudreau took over and turned this team around. Slowly, they fought their way out of the basement. Eight games ago, they got crushed by the Blackhawks. They haven't lost since. Tonight the Caps beat Florida to win the SE Division and finish third in the conference! Unfreakinbelievable! Now Ovechkin just needs to be named MVP and Boudreau needs to be Coach of the Year.

Sixteen games to go to get Lord Stanley's Cup. Let's Go Caps!

I have a hundred other things I should be doing today so I'm stalling.

Meme Fun! )
bunchofgrapes: (Miranda Priestly)

All-Around Smart

You are all-around smart. Essentially, that means that you are a good combination of your own knowledge and experience, along with having learned through instruction - and you are equally as good with theoretical things as you are with real-world, applied things. You have a well-rounded brain.

0% applied intelligence
20% learned intelligence

Not sure if I got better or worse but I don't think I'm quite as wordy as I once was. That might not be saying much though.

Any one else want to give this a shot, have at it. It's fun!

Because [ profile] crusherbevdr tagged me and I like being tagged. Most of the time.

1. Grab the book closest to you.

2. Open to page 123, go down to the fifth sentence.

3. Post the text of next 3 sentences on your blog.

Note: Getting hit with a chair from behind, or from any side by a metal chair, will inflict a significant amount of pain and injury.

Use the techniques in "How to Be Ready for Anything" (p.130) to help defuse a situation and the techniques in "How to Win a Fight When You're Outnumbered" (p.133) to try to dodge either a metal chair or one coming from behind.

Getting hit with a wooden chair is going to hurt no matter what you do, but if you see it coming, and you have protected yourself properly, the hit will cause little permanent damage.

4. Name the book and the author.

The Action Hero's Handbook by David Borgenicht and Joe Borgenicht

Um, my computer is near a stack of books--I picked the one on top. Consider this a PSA for the next time you're in a bar fight. And note that getting hit with chairs will hurt. A lot.

5. Tag three other people.

I'm tagging anyone who wants to give it a go.

And now for something completely different: Happy Belated Birthday to [ profile] cincoflex! I hope your day was perfect!
bunchofgrapes: (Brass - Tell me again)
Mostly snagged from, sort of tagged by [ profile] inamberclad

Ten things that make you happy, and tag five peeps.

With the exception of #1, these are in no particular order.

1. My kitties
2. Paul Guilfoyle
3. The ocean
4. Writing
5. My friends
6. Watching it snow
7. Shopping online
8. Having sisters and an amazing step-mother
9. Spring
10. Being where I am right now in my life

Honorable mention to Dallas Cowboys football and Caps hockey--even though both make me scream and yell often.

If you want to do it and haven't done it, consider yourself tagged.
bunchofgrapes: (Brassness w/tongue)
1. Leave me a comment saying, "Interview me."
2. I respond by asking you five personal questions so I can get to know you better. If I already know you well, expect the questions may be a little more intimate.
3. You WILL update your LJ with the answers to the questions.
4. You will include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the post.
5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions.
