Tagged by an Angel

In catching up on my blogging this weekend I discovered I was tagged by Angel. And since I would hate her to think she was snubbed on her first tag, here it is:

24 Things:

1) Grab the book nearest to you, turn to page 18, and find line 4.
Morelli men are known for being charming but worthless drunks who rarely care about the comfort of their wife and kids, much less the dog. {Eleven on Top by Janet Evanovich}
2) Stretch your left arm out as far as you can and see what you touch.
A wooden bowl on the table - we call it the Thingamebowl cos it contains all the clutter that would otherwise lie around loose on the table.
3) What is the last thing you watched on TV?
ER
4) Without looking, guess what time it is.
2:30pm
5) Now look at the clock. What is the actual time?
Oops. 3:15pm
6) With the exception of the computer, what can you hear?
The ticking of our central heating timer, and the crunch of Hubby eating a plum.
7) When did you last step outside? What were you doing?
About an hour ago, getting back from grocery shopping.
8) Before you started this survey, what did you look at?
Angel's Mind - blog
9) What are you wearing?
Jeans, tan boots & a brown v-neck sweater.
10) Did you dream last night?
Yes, although I can't remember anything concrete about it.
11) When did you last laugh?
Yesterday evening on the phone with a friend.
12) What is on the walls of the room you are in?
A mirror, two horrible paintings of fox-hunting scenes, a weird African wooden picture which I love, that my step-children brought us from a stopover in Dubai, and a frame with 3 of my own photo's - the Eiffel Tower, the Collosseum and the pretty white houses in Santorini.
13) Seen anything weird lately?
This is Dublin - weird is normal.
14) What do you think of this quiz?
It's kinda quirky, that's why I 'm doing it.
15) What is the last film you saw?
Veronica Gueron (on DVD. Don't remember the last time I went to the movies.)
16) If you became a multi-millionaire overnight, what would you buy?
A house each for my mom, sisters and husband's family; A house for us here in Ireland (probably) and a holiday home somewhere sunny, like Spain or Cyprus or the south of France; I would take great pleasure in buying all the furnishings for my houses. Oh, and maybe a new car for Hubby. And one for me, what the heck!
17) Tell me something about you that I don't know.
The only thing about me that I believe in is my intelligence.
18) If you could change one thing about the world, regardless of guilt or politics, what would you do?
Stop the violence. All of it.
19) Do you like to dance?
I love to dance!
20) George Bush?
How on earth did he get elected a second time???!
21) Imagine your first child is a girl, what do you call her?
I used to say Kayleigh, but then a friend of ours called their dog that. So... Hm. No idea.
22) Imagine your first child is a boy, what do you call him?
Alex
23) Would you ever consider living abroad?
Actually, I do live abroad. But SA is still home.
24) What do you want God to say to you when you reach the pearly gates?
Well done, you made it!

I'm not going to tag anyone 'cos I don't feel like it, but feel free to post your 24 on your blog. I'm outta here!

thanx for accepting my tag terri- it was very intriguing!
i'm not always sure of blogging etiquette... are you allowed to steal a meme from someone who you aren't sure is not a regular reader of your own blog? are you allowed to tag someone who hasn't listed you as a regular read on their own blog? are you allowed to tag someone who has never tagged you before? how rude is it to "un-tag" yourself... is that even possible? the neuroses sets in quickly doesn't it!? waaaaahahaha!

Terri said...

Angel - Hm, blogging etiquette eh? I'll have to google that sometime ;-) Tell ya what, I was in the process of writing a really long comment in response, but I've decided to turn it into a post all of its own. Watch this space...
