A meme from Blackbird

Blackbird tagged me to do a meme and it has given me a little skip in my step, thank you BB. I think being tagged is lovely. To me it feels like the blogging equivalent of a friendly smile and a wave from someone you see all the time but don't necessarily know really well. It makes me feel very cheery.
However, the copy/paste function isn't working for some reason so I am going to have to type the whole thing out which, in a very first-world-how-bloody-good-is-my-life-but-I-am-going-to-bitch-about-it-anyway fashion makes me not feel very cheery.
I love them so much I'm going to send BB and big airkiss *mwah* and do it anyway, here goes!

What are your current obsessions?
Sadly, the pronounciation of 'meme'. Is it me-me or meem?
And, the rules for small sided games football as I have (in a fit of insanity) volunteered to coach J's U6 soccer team.

Which item from you wardrobe do you wear most often?
Now that the weather is cooler probably my midnight denim jeans but in the summer I lived in navy blue cargo shorts.

What's for dinner?
We just ate and it was a brown lentil & tomato dish with roasted kumara and potatoes and steamed broccoli with a wholegrain mustard dressing. It was delicious, even if I do say so myself.
What's your greatest fear at the moment?
That I will be a cr*p soccer coach. See above. Seriously, it's keeping me up at night. Lucky for me there is not much else worrying me right now. For the moment, we are all well and on an even keel.

What are you listening to?
Melody Gardot, G doing her piano practice, J and C singing the alphabet song and arguing about the 'hello men oh pee' part.

If you were a goddess what would you be?
I would be a protector of children. In the style of the greek or roman gods, I would be loving and gentle to all children but vengeful and nasty to those who mistreat them.

What are your favourite holiday spots?
Far north Queensland and other warm and sunny places. Fantasy holiday spots? France, New York, Canada.

What are you reading right now?
I just finished Eagle Strike by Anthony Horowitz and don't have anything else lined up because I just can't bring myself to go back to Eat Pray Love. Will probably go to the library tomorrow to pick something up, any suggestions? I'm excited about the new AS Byatt.

What is your guilty pleasure?
Slothing on couch watching movies with Mr Duyvken.

Who or what makes you laugh?
C is so off the wall. I find it hard to believe that so much personality can come out of her little 2 1/2 year old mind. She takes after her godmother!

What is your favourite sping thing to do?
It's just mean to ask this question of me now that I am breaking out the winter jumpers and using an electric blanket to warm up the bed. However, I am a good host so I will answer your question - my favourite spring thing to do is to sit on the beach feeling warm sand beneath my feet and the heat of the sun on my skin.

Where are you planning to travel next?
Hopefully, My Duyvken and I will spend a few days in Byron Bay later in the year to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary. There'll be warm sand up there for sure!

What is the best thing you ate or drank lately?
[is that question grammatically correct? M will know!] I had some delicious salt and pepper tofu on Sunday night.

When was the last time you were tipsy?
It doesn't feel like very long ago but I can't remember exactly. I guess that confirms that I was tipsy and not just sipping politely.

What is your favourite ever film?
[not confident about the grammar here either] Immortal Beloved, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, and dozens of others.

What is the biggest lesson you've learned from your children?
Knowing when to stop being consistent and to start being flexible... and then when to go back to being consistent again.

What song can't you get out of your head?
The 2 times tables.
Oh yeah.

What book do you know you should read but refuse to?
Anything by Barbara Kingsolver, I just can't get into them.

What is your physical abnormality/abnormal physical ability?
How polite of them to phrase the question suggesting that I only have one physical abnormality. Hm, according to my sister-in-law I have awesome feet, does that count?

What is your favourite colour?

Regular meme rules apply so you know the drill. I'd like to tag Eleanor, Eurolush, Kim, Corrie and Megan.

I'm looking forward to the new A.S. Byatt too!
I say 'meem' and find it odd when I hear others say me-me.

PS I would have said - What is the best thing you have had to eat or drink recently. I'm sure there are other options though and want to hear M's version.
Mary said…
I'm with meem.

Great answers to this one.
eurolush said…
You tagged me? Little ol' ME??? Awww. Now I have something to blog about! (Going through a dry spell over here.)

Yum! Your dinners sound divine!

PS-I've heard it's pronounced "Meem" but I can't help but call it "Me-Me," 'cause it's all about ME!
Eleanor said…
OOO..so exciting...thanks Duyvken.
Jen said…
I had thought it was maymay, but it's Mimi. Now, how do you pronounce Duyvken? I've been saying is DIVE-kin in my head.
Corrie said…
cool! I haven't done one for a while! off to do it now!
