The mysterious disappearing meme...

is back.  So I figured I should post the damn thing before it disappears again...

1. What are your current obsessions?

I obsess over many things, not least why I'm obsessing over one thing rather than another.

2. Who would you most like to have dinner with?

Whoever is willing to pay for dinner at a fancy restaurant with expensive wine.

3. Last dream you had?

I was wading through a lake of blood and body parts. I was carrying a machete. Conclude what you will.

4. Last thing you bought?

Dinner in an expensive restaurant

5. What are you listening to?

Why must we always be listening to something in these damn things. No! I don't have music on, I'm not obsessed by having music on, despite the fact that yes, I do own an iPod! I'm not listening to anything. I'm hearing the ventilation system, colleagues chatting, a chair creaking. Silence. Blessed silence would be nice now and again. Why are people so afraid of silence, what is it they're afraid of? Do they think if the iPod or the TV isn't blasting it means they don't exist?

Rant over

6. If you were a god/goddess who would you be?

Well, duh. Bachhus

7. Favorite holiday spots?

Anwwhere but my desk

8. Reading right now?

This meme? ok, Iran, les rives du sang by Fariba Hachtroudi

9. Four words to describe yourself.

Right now? Lazy, hungry, bored... i can't find anything else, I'm too bored

10. Guilty pleasure?

As if I'd tell you

11. Who or what makes you laugh until you’re weak?

I'm never weak

12. Favorite spring thing to do?

Gloat that winter is over

13. Planning to travel to next?

France in May. Unless it doesn't work, in which case who knows?

14. Best thing you ate or drank lately?

Yesterday's black truffle risotto

15. When did you last get tipsy?

Tipsy? Ridiculous word. Last weekend. And I saw a great t-shirt at that party:

I'm not an alcoholic, I'm a drunk. Alcoholics go to meetings.

16. Favorite ever films?

I took the liberty of adding an s to film - LOTR, One flew over the cuckoo's nest and Blade Runner. I think

17. Care to share some wisdom?

Life will eventually kill you, don't take it seriously

18. What item could you not live without?


19. Thing you are looking forward to?

The end of this damn day

20. What’s your favorite smell?

Currently? Black truffle risotto

21. If you didn’t live where you do, where would you choose to live?

Probably the American south-west. In the desert out there.

furiousBall said...

as someone that recently visited new mexico - i 100% agree with #21 - loved it out there

Rachel said...

Your music rant made me laugh and laugh. And I agree with every word you said! You're my soul sister, you are.

secret agent woman said...

Not gong to touch that dream with a ten-foot pole!

I feel the same way about music - I generally have it on when I'm walking or driving, but otherwise, I appreciate a little quiet.

Jeaux said...

I turned off the car radio when I was driving not long ago, and was surprised at how pleasant it was to hear nothing more than the wind rushing by.

XUP said...

Mmmm...black truffle risotto.... Which wine did you pair that with?

Shrinky said...

"I'm not an alcoholic. I'm a drunk. Alcholics go to meetings."

Amen. (Giggle)

Voyager said...

The black truffle risotto keeps appearing in this meme. I'm intrigued. Did you make it, or was this at the fancy resaurant you would go to with anyone willing to pay?

Jazz said...

BB - some days...

Furball - it is the greatest

Rachel - but of course, we knew that

SAW - hell, that's right, with your job, I should be careful what I write!

Jeaux - lovely ain't it?

XUP - I have no idea. I drank what I was given. It was red though.

Shrinky - welcome here. glad you got a kick out of that.

Voyager - the fancy schmancy restaurant. Mmmmmm

Hagelrat said...

you know you worry me a little right?

geewits said...

Please don't ever dream about me.

Jocelyn said...

Black truffle risotto AND France in May? What poetry you type!

Jazz said...

Hagelrat - why ever would I worry you?

Geewits - I'm sure any dream I had about you would be good times!

Joce - N'est-ce pas?

^5 on the music issue. I'm often terrified to admit how musically indifferent I am, for fear of being stoned. Not that I don't appreciate it, or have tons of it, I just often prefer silence, and feel blessed that I've paired off with a guy that likes to travel with no radio on. Music blasting in a car is my idea of hell.
