More Memes

I saw this meme over at Finding Life's Enchantments and decided to do it.

1. What time did you get up this morning?
Err, actually I've been awake all night feeding my new Entrecard addiction.
2. Diamonds or pearls?
Diamonds cost more, right? Diamonds then. So I can pawn them and buy a Wii instead.
3. Last movie you saw in the theater?
Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. It was a loooong time ago.
4. What is/are your favorite TV shows?
Heroes, Twilight Zone, Friday the 13th (the television show not the movies)
5. What do you usually have for breakfast?
Err, it changes everyday. This morning, it was peanut butter on a rice cake.
6. What is your middle name?
I choose not to say on the interwebs. It's an unusual one.
7. What food do you dislike?
8. What is your favorite CD at the moment?
"Ghosts I-IV" by Nine Inch Nails
9. What kind of car do you drive?
Err, a Schwinn bicycle from Walmart. :-)
10. Favorite sandwich?
Egg salad with no celery.
11. What characteristics do you despise?
Believing that all other people must conform to a certain way of life.
12. Favorite item of clothing?
Hmm, whatever's nearby and clean?
13. If you could go anywhere in the world for a vacation, where would you go?
14. What color is your bathroom?
Pink, white, black, and mahogany wood. It's an interior designer's nightmare.

15. Favorite brand of clothing?
Don't know. I haven't paid attention since I was 13 and, then, only because my best friend at the time cared.
16. Where would you want to retire?
New Orleans. As long as they keep the levees in good repair. :-/
17. Most memorable birthday?
Actually, they all kinda blend together.
18. Favorite sport to watch?
Hmm, it's not actually a sport but there's this Japanese game show they show on G4(?) Network called "Ninja Warrior". Athletes from across Japan (and the occasional foreigner) run an obstacle course and try to win the title of 'Ninja Warrior'. It gets repetitive and dull after awhile but, for some reason, I can watch it for hours.
19. Furthest place you are sending this to?
Wherever the internet goes!

Nobody? Somebody might, I guess. :-)

See top of web page. :-) Well, I guess that's more of a quote.

A cycling-obsessed internet addict. The worlds sometime clash when I want to do both!

Reese's Peanut Butter Cups
30. Your favorite flower?

Holy crap, that was a lot of questions. Thanks for the insights though ... and happy birthday, which I'm assuming has passed as there are only a couple days left in the month. Now get some sleep.

EntreCard is addicting...I just joined and have been staying up all night, too. March Madness basketball on the TV, blogs on my computer...good fun! I find it refreshing to discover some new blogs that aren't on BlogExplosion. Feel free to drop in on me....

I Loves me some Ghosts I-!V! I haven't liked much of the recent NIN stuff, but this one has a great concept, interestingly haunting yet somewhat repetitive and droning (in a good way) sound, and Adrian freakin' Belew playing on it. Plus the way it's being sold is a great big F-you to the recording industry dinosaurs.

Titania Starlight said...

Thanks for playing along! That was fun to read you answers and yes I read them all. :)

You had some cute answers.
Guess what? I watch Ninja Warrior too! I also watch MXC which is another Asian game show and it is so bizarre but funny.

daisy Duke? LOL! That was a good one. I like the old one too. Not Jessica Simpson. Blech.

I had fun. Thanks for sharing.

Francis - Heh, I seem to like the long memes. Nah, my birthday's Sunday. I don't like making a huge mention of it till it's passed. :-p

Roxiticus - Oh, yeah. I've found tons of new blogs over at Entrecard. Someday, I'll have to post a screen pic of my huge "blogs" bookmarks folder.

Jason - I love the way it was sold too. 2500 copies of the $300 limited edition version sold out within a day or two, grossing TR and crew $750K. And that's not counting all the $5, $10, and $75 versions that were sold. NIN (and most mainstream acts) really doesn't need the record company's marketing department anymore.

Titania - I cheer for the blond/pink-haired girl every time she's on the female version. :) Hmm, I might've seen MXC but never caught the name. I love Japanese game shows.

Daisy Duke ruled! She kicked ass right alongside the boys. :)
