Thankyou for the Meme

I am utterly rubbish, I’ve been tagged so many times and not gotten round to doing any of them!  Thank you to all these lovely people for thinking of me Mum-E , Luphia, Our Beautiful Crazy Life, Coding MamaSusan, Nixd Minx (twice!) so to make amends I’m doing this one.  Nixd Minx sent me with this one from Tara Cain at Sticky Fingers who had the same problem and she came up with this one which made me laugh.

1. Who is the hottest movie star?

Where to start?  Johnny Depp when he’s not in stupid makeup/Tim Burton movies, Gerald Butler, David Duchovny….endless list 😉

2. Apart from your house and your car, what’s the most expensive item you’ve ever bought?

6 months freedom holiday in Canada when I was 25 and having a quarter-life crisis, best thing I ever did!

3. What’s your most treasured memory?

The day my husband proposed, we’d just miscarried and I thought he was asking me to stop me from crying. It was simultaneously the saddest/happiest/most romantic/poignant day of my life

4. What was the best gift you ever received as a child?

A tie between my first computer – a BBC Acorn Electron, starting my lifetime as a geek girl and my red Grifter bike which I loved to death.

5. What’s the biggest mistake you’ve made?

When I was 22, I avoided a friend who was off on holiday, because I’d had an argument ( I can’t even remember what it was about now) with one of her friends at a party.  I didn’t say goodbye to her, it was a spur of the moment thing but I couldn’t be bothered to discuss the stupid argument with her.   She didn’t come back.   She died at 21 on a jetski with her boyfriend in an accident.  It was stupid and ridiculous and I’ve never forgiven myself for not saying goodbye.

6. 4 words to describe yourself.

Mother, Wife, Friend, Geek

7. What was your highlight or lowlight of 2008?

Highlight – my best friends having their first baby

Lowlight – My Goddaughter’s 9 month old son dying, beyond heartbreaking.

8. Favourite film?

Star Wars (the original and best!)

9. Tell me one thing I don’t know about you.

I can’t knit or sew and I really, really wish I could.  But I seem to murder sewing machines LOL!

10. If you were a comic book/strip or cartoon character, who would you be?

Wonder Woman 🙂

So if you are feeling as guilty as me, feel free to join in!!

  1. Excellent stuff VP. You’ve managed to do exactly what was intended of this meme and open up a little window into what makes you tick – the good times and the bad times.
    For the record, Johnny Depp can be with or without the make up and he’s HOT, a BBC Acorn Electron? Brilliant and red Grifter = aces!

  2. I am so bad too, I have been tagged and I have not passed them on. On my to do list!
    and Johnny Depp is oh so my favorite, he makes me melt. I lived down the street from him when he was with Winona Ryder…. *sigh* I was always speechless when I saw him. as I said he makes me melt!
