questions answered

So, did everyone meet "Sleep-Deprived Terri" yesterday?

Fun, isn't she?

As for today, well it's amazing what a good night's sleep will do for one's sense of humour. Last night I almost fell asleep in front of the TV - something I NEVER do, no matter how uninteresting it is - so at 9:15 I took myself off to bed and proceeded to have what can only be described as a marathon sleep. I don't think I could have slept harder if I had been drugged.
Yes, you heard what I said -never underestimate the healing power of a muscle-relaxant

So today here I am, all bright-eyed and bushy-tailed. Er, or something.
I haven't bitten any heads off today anyway - that has to be a good sign.

Well this post has been a whole day in the writing and now, at last, I’m home again and I’ve just read something that made me laugh out loud – thanks Undr!

So I’ve decided to take up his suggestion and do a little meme:

1. If money were no object, what would you be doing with your life?
Travelling the world, meeting people and writing all about it just because I can.

2. Money is just that - an object, so why aren't you doing it?

Du-uh, ‘cos you need to have money to travel, and my recent £50 windfall probably won’t even get me out of Ireland.

3. What's better: horses or cows?

Definitely horses. Cows are the stupidest creatures on earth, next to PC end-users (Before you start swearing at me & calling me names, Bloggers don’t count – you gotta have at least a bit of savvy to be able to log in and blog!)

4. What do you think the secret to happiness is?
Well after pondering this one for a while, I have to agree with Undr here. The correct answer is {drum roll}… Love.

5. When was the last time you had a dream that you either remember well or did not want to awake from? Can you share a bit?

Dreams? Me? Surely you jest! Two nights ago I dreamt about a guy I used to know who was once married to a friend of mine, and who is a complete and utter arsehole. I dreamt he pitched up wherever we were and I wanted to beat the crap out of him because he’s the kind of person who just sucks up oxygen and serves no useful purpose on this planet.
Yeesh, I should’ve chosen to answer the second option…!

6. When you were a little kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
Aw, I’ve told you guys this already – a ballet teacher.

7. Complete this statement: Love is...Never having to say ...

Untie me you bastard!

8. Can you tell a good story? (write one!)

Umm… the short answer is:

Tess was under pressure. She didn’t work well under pressure. The director was screaming at the actress, the actress was screaming at the wardrobe lady, and the wardrobe lady was screaming at Tess. Where the hell were those safety pins? Suddenly she spotted them on a little table behind the potted plant.
“I found them!” she cried.
The wardrobe lady stopped screaming at Tess, the actress stopped screaming at the wardrobe lady and the director finally stopped screaming at the actress.
Five minutes later the cameras were rolling again and the pressure was gone… for the moment, anyway.

9. Can you remember your last daydream? What was it about?

Sandy beaches and sunshine...

OK, that’s it, all done.
You’re all tagged, mwahahahaha!

I'm still laughing at the smiley face mug that is frowning! =)

Mandy said...

you have such a wicked s.o.h!!

Terri said...

Anne: Just 'cos I know how much u love homework...Tag, you're it!!!

Undr: A nickel? Damn, I'd say that one is worth at least a quarter!

LiVEwIRe: That pic is the epitome of me in the mornings... right down to the fluffy purple slippers. It's been emailed to me by various people dozens of times already. And somehow, I knew you'd enjoy it ;-)

Mandy: Me? Wicked? Never! btw Congrats on figuring out the commenting thing, yay!

May I guess who the arsehole is you were talking about? I think I also dreamt about him recently. Double Yeesh!!!

Tagged? Is that like pinning the tail on the donkey? 'Cause if it is, you missed his ass completely.
I have five memes to complete (arrgghhh)... promise I will get around to this one some time later.
The "tell a story" bit scares me a little. The only ones I can think of are rated.

Terri said...

Buddess, thinking about it I actually don't think it's the same one - although it could be. Unfortunately my memory starts getting a bit fuzzy the further back in time it goes & I can't remember who I met when. But there are more than enough assholes in the world to go around, eh?

Chitty - no pressure, bro! As for your stories... we wouldn't expect anything less ;-)
