Ah, the ever ubiquitous meme.
Why do these seem to never grow old?
I must confess: every time I do one, I feel like I’m 12 and giggly and starry-eyed and dreamy—that age before I truly came to know how crappy adulthood can be at times.
Now, I’m old and cynical and bitter and I haven’t a dream left in me. (Okay, that might be a bit harsh, but the cynical, bitter part isn’t.) So, here’s the latest meme, by way of Sister Mary Lisa.
It’s 50 questions long, so I’m breaking it up into five parts, because memes should be short. More especially, though, because I have a piece I’ve written about fall and I just saw the movie September Dawn tonight and I want to review that in the next day or so.
1. What time did you get up this morning?
5:45 a.m. I woke up in the middle of an epiphany about trying to be rational and professional with someone who is insane. I think I'm on the losing end, but I'm willing to keep trying...
2. How do you like your steak?
3. What was the last film you saw at the cinema?
September Dawn with Bee and a friend.
4. What is your favorite TV show?
Friends, Dharma and Greg, The Vicar of Dibley. I call these my "adult cartoons." If you want something current, I can’t give you anything as I don’t watch TV much these days.
5. What did you have for breakfast?
The same thing I have most mornings: six times nothing.
6. What is your middle name?
M. (Actually, the M really does mean something more than just being a letter, but it's for me to know and the rest of you not to find out via my blog.)
7. What is your favorite cuisine?
I confess, I’m not 100% keen on the whole vegan/vegetarian line of cuisine. My favorite would be just about anything. I’m not that picky.
8. What are your favorite chips?
Utz regular potato chips. For a basic potato chip, they put Lays to shame.
9. What is your favorite CD at the moment?
Snow Patrol’s Eye’s Open.
10. What kind of car do you drive?
To work, a Honda CR-V EX. When going out with friends or driving long distances, a Volkswagen Passat.
