Mosaic Me This, Mosaic Me That


I think my friend, JaneAnnchovy, tagged me for this one a while back. And if she didn't, someone did. Maybe in was Di? Anyway--my friend Angie did one on her blog yesterday, which reminded me I'd been tagged weeks ago. Here's mine. Can you believe the first thing to pop up for my name was a friggin' cat?! The Gods are having a great belly laugh at my miserable expense. Bastards.

Want to give this meme a whirl? Here's how:

* Type your answer to each of the questions below into Flickr Search.
* Using only the first page, pick an image. (You can arrange by "Most relevant," "Most recent," or "Most interesting.")
* Copy and paste each of the URLs for the images into fd's mosaic maker.

The Questions:

1. What is your first name?
2. What is your favorite food?
3. What high school did you go to?
4. What is your favorite color?
5. Who is your celebrity crush?
6. Favorite drink?
7. Dream vacation?
8. Favorite dessert?
9. What you want to be when you grow up?
10. What do you love most in life?
11. One Word to describe you?
12. Your flickr name?


1. Janet, 2. Pad Thai Bangkok, 3. The House on the Lake, 4. Water Droplets in the Shower - o.k. bokeh, 5. Allison Janney, 6. The Dr. is In, 7. The Way Home, 8. Flickr Meltdown, 9. We are Choosing Hope over Fear., 10. Friends Silhouetted, 11. A Dog's Best Friend, 12. Night Coming on Lake

Oooh, yours is very blue and soothing and cool looking. Mine is all orange and yellow and bright. Interesting the contrasts.

Hey, who's your crush? I don't recognise her.

Nice mosaic, Tewkesy!

D'oh. Nevermind...

I just read the fine print. I love Allison Janney too! She is always so damn cool. "Drop Dead Gorgeous" and "Juno" are two of my favourite Janney character movies.

Di: Janney was also hauntingly amazing as the wife to Chris Cooper's character in American Beauty. If I could have lunch with one celebrity, she'd be it. And that's saying a lot because I also like Charlize Theron, Ashley Judd, Kate Winslet, and Denzel Washington. But Allison would be my first choice.

I thought all the blues were interesting, too. Ironically, it's my favorite color. I loved your mosaic meme. Did I say that on your blog? I can't remember. Now I'm going to have to go look again.

If I were in college, I'd make that into a poster and put it on my dorm room wall!

Having a chuckle about the cat ...

Phoebe: You should make one for your daughter composed of all the things you love about her and send it to her. I'll bet she'd love it! (Is that too corny?)

As for the cat, bah.

Good grief, this is all too much for me. As my third graders said a thousand times a day, "I don't get it."
Maybe if I go step by step, I can figure it out. It's funny cause yesterday Angela sent me the how to on mosaic maker. I'll get back with you if I come up with any kind of results.

Ha ha, cats. I love the mosaic, I will have to try that one.

The weirdest, weirdest, weirdest, saddest thing just happened. I started doing this, typed in the query about my high school, and the first thing that came up was a flickr stream of photos of a man I knew as a petite, theatrical, definitely not out of the closet yet, very young freshman the year I was a senior. And apparently, he took his own life last year. He was such a bright, cheerful kid.

So strange and so sad.

Virginia: I think you'd have a ball with this! Go for it!


Cele: Yeah, the cat thing is really funny. Not.


Merujo: That's too, too freaky. And very sad.
