for the heck of it.

Crystal tagged me in this meme, so I decided to fill it out! I am trying to distract myself until lunch time, because I'm starving!

1. Respond and rework; answer the questions on your blog, replace one question that you dislike with a question of your invention & add one more question of your own.
2. Tag eight other people.

What is your current obsession? CSI! I don’t know why, for some reason I decided I needed to go back and watch all the old seasons.

What are you wearing today? Light grey capris, pink camisole, white cardigan, black and white zebra flats

What’s your favourite meal? So hard to choose! If I was being executed and had to pick my last meal, I'd probably pick steak, medium rare, with crispy french fries. But if I was picking a favourite 'every day' kind of meal, it'd be my low-fat butter chicken (with spinach), and spicy baked sweet potato.

What’s the last thing you bought? A coffee from Tim Horton’s. The last non-food thing I bought was … a season of CSI! Ha ha ha!

What are you listening to right now? A very loud meeting in the next room, and the hum of the air conditioning.

If you could go anywhere in the world for the next hour, where would you go? An island somewhere, with free drinks and a comfortable chair on the beach.

Which language do you want to learn? French, I guess. I used to be kinda okay at it, but I’ve forgotten it all.

What do you love most about where you currently live? The apartment itself sucks, but we’re steps away the ‘gay village’ where there is always something fun going on, 4 or 5 great patios to have drinks on, cute little cheese shops / produce markets / a butcher / a chocolate shop, and a place to get frozen yogurt!

What is your favorite colour? Red / pink

What is your favorite piece of clothing in your own wardrobe? Black linen cap-sleeved jacket

Describe your personal style? Casual and comfortable, with maybe a hint of cool? I hope?

If you had $300 now, what would you spend it on? Another pair of Merrell sandals (in brown!), some summer shirts, and stocking up the wine cabinet.

What are you going to do after this? Possibly some work…since that’s what I should be doing now.

What is something about you that most people don't know? I went to university when I was 16.

Your favorite smell? Millions! Grapefruit and other citrus scents, mint, the smell of good red wine, matches, rain, freshly mowed grass, homemade bread, roasting meat, charcoal barbecues, ocean, clean laundry… I could go on!

Do you collect anything? Not really. Shaun would say I collect books. I kind of have a lot (several hundred! :S)

What makes you follow a blog? Sense of humour, photos, something I can relate to, and secretly I follow some blogs because I can’t believe what a trainwreck that person is. Don’t worry, that doesn’t apply to any of you guys!

What's your favorite drink? Coffee, or red wine

What’s one thing you dream of doing? Travelling! I want to go to Cuba, and Italy, and Australia, and Egypt, and Greece, and I want to roadtrip across the southwestern US, and I want to go to Boston, and Cape Cod, and San Francisco, and Seattle, and I want to walk in the desert and swim in the Pacific ocean! Phew!

What is your biggest regret? Letting my finances get so out of control

What is your favorite thing to do on a rainy day? Watch movies with Shaun and order take-out!

Do you have a tattoo? Nope. Not sure I’d ever get one. I change my mind / tastes too often!

What are your favorite books? So many! I love my Nancy Drew books, and Harry Potter, I love the Fionavar Tapestry, I love the Hitchiker’s Guide to the Galaxy series, recently I've gotten into mysteries, and I loved Tana French and am super sad she only has two books out!

Are you left handed, right handed, ambidextrous, or a little of both? Right handed

What is your favorite fruit? I like it all! Grapefruit probably, or, oooh, cherries!

Blackberry or iPhone? Neither! I have a super crappy Nokia. But I’d pick an iPhone if pressed.

What/Who inspired you to start your blog? Well, I’ve been blogging since about … 2001? WOW, that’s a long time. I was on Diary X back in the olden days, and then switched to Livejournal from about 2003 to 2008. Then when I decided to start losing weight I thought I’d start a separate blog to chronicle that. That was just after I’d stumbled across Dietgirl’s blog, so I guess you could say she inspired me.

I think a lot of people have already been tagged, so basically let's just say, fill this out if it appeals to you? You could even fill it out and leave it in my comments section, if you don't want to devote a whole blog post to it!
