It’s Meme Week!!!

EXMI tagged me with no less than two memes last week, and Louisa tagged me too!!

I’m going to split them up however, and post one today and one tomorrow, so thanx for the blog fodder, girl.

First up is the “McDanger Meme”, also done by Sunday Stealing who swiped it from an Aussie blogging under Baino’s Banter.
As with meme rules- I’ve linked to my tagger and where possible I’ve linked to the meme creator, and I’ve tagged a few fellow bloggers at the end.

What are your nicknames?

Well, I always just had “Angel”, but lately I’ve been “babe” and “boobalicious” too!

What TV game show or reality show would you like to be on?

I can’t like reality shows like “Survivor” anymore. When they started out people seemed sincere- now even the contestants seem out to shock! I wouldn’t mind being on “Extreme Makeover- Home Edition”… not that there’s anything wrong with our house- it would just be cool to get a weeks paid vacation and a home makeover I didn’t have to pay for! Or I think I’d go for something like “Who Wants To Be A Millionaire”. Ooh, wait, is that even still on?

What was the first movie you bought in VHS or DVD?

Erm… that was a while ago on VHS, and I think it was… drum roll please “Spiderman”!

What is your favorite scent?

Ooh, right now I am simply loving Vera Wang’s “Princess“, and my other favourite, Yardley’s “Baroque” is no longer manufactured.

If you had one million dollars to spend only on yourself, what would you spend it on?

Oh my goodness… well since that’s about R10M, I could do a LOT with it! A new car would be first (still haven’t totally decided, although the OPC or the Alfa 147 would probably be my first choice), and then a black Ducati Monster. Then I’d take a couple of months off work and laze around the house and do some scrapbooking and tour the country a bit. I’d get some snazzy cameras and lenses and take a photography course. I’d do a wedding planning course. I’d buy lots of underwear and shoes.

What is one place you’ve visited but can’t forget and want to go back to?

Well, since I’ve never been out of the country this will be a rather unexciting question! I loved all the holidays Damien and I took together. I would try to get us away from home and family and friends for at least a week a year and I’d scrimp and save to do so. Now, with my new life-style, I just love the game farm that Glugs, Damien and I spend the odd weekend at.

Do you trust easily?

Erm… hhmmm… sheesh, tough one. I think I trust easily UNTIL romance is involved. I have always had a tendency to tell all and sundry way too much about myself- colleagues included- and it bit me in the ass more than once so I try not to do it anymore. My Glugster and I have been together almost a year and I still have to talk myself out of the “what-if…” scenarios that tend to run through chick’s heads!

Do you generally think before you act, or act before you think?

I think I tend to over think things… as much as I long to be spontaneous! And I think things through especially where the knucklehead is concerned.

Is there anything that has made you unhappy these days?

PMSing… it makes me think and feel things that I know are bullshit- and while I really do not get majorly depro- I really am very lucky when it comes to battling with menses, unlike my poor sisters- I still know when I’m PMSing.

Do you have a good body image?

Erm… it depends on whether I am PMSing or not. I did have a good image about a year ago, but I’ve picked up a lot of the weight I lost since my Glugs and I hooked up and I don’t like it because I was doing so well. I also hate my teeth- but when I smile I show every single one of them! And of course my Glugs makes me feel as if I look like Angelina Jolie!

What is your favorite fruit?

I love all the berries! Especially strawberries!

What websites do you visit daily?

My own blog- of course- and my Weddings, Cats and Photo blogs. Then there’s Google, Google Analytics, Gmail, my Glugs, my sister B, my BBF, Sweets (who is now sadly having to take a blog-break), CamelsBackAndForth, Budvo Dawn, Faerie (private), Dyna’s Happy Hour (private), KingCover (private), Nathan’s Fan Club and Facebook. The other blogs I visit have been allocated specific days because there are so many, so those are on average 12 a day along with my “dailies”- South African and non-South African.

What have you been seriously addicted to lately?

Ooh- another killer question! I am still addicted to cigarettes- always will be! When I drink or party, I smoke a lot, no matter how much I tell myself I won’t or I mustn’t. And then there’s Coke. That sweet sweet rush when it hits me… man oh man… but it has to be ice cold- else it is just yuck!

What’s the last song that got stuck in your head?

I’ve been singing Britney Spears “Womaniser” for the last bit- which I got to intro on 5FM’s Hi5@5 music chart yesterday- dedicating it to Faerie, myself, a friend and all the Britney fans. Love her or hate her- you have to admit she’s a pure musical gold.

What is your favorite thing to wear?

Hhmmm… I love my rings, and I wear at least one every day, usually more. And since I had my ears pierced I wear earrings every day too. Right now I am loving my Mary-Jane style Crocs! And yes, you heard me… but they’re not the Crocs that South Africa in general thinks of- they’re sexy Crocs, and I caused quite an email furore a while ago when I admitted to wearing and liking them!

Do you think Rice Krispies are yummy?

Oh yes, especially with ice cold milk, sliced bananas and a little sugar. Or mixed with melted marshmallows and cut into squares after being pressed flat into a baking tray.

What would you do if you saw $100 lying on the ground?

Honestly… if I didn’t see who dropped it it’d go in my pocket and I’d spend it.

What items couldn’t you go without during the day?

My cellphone and my laptop!

What should you be doing right now?

LOL… working of course! I just decided to take a “lunch break”, so I’m enjoying Oreos and milk at my desk!

I think Cami, Ydnic, Wenchy, Malicious Intent and Eternally Curious should do this one too- and don’t forget to include the usual blogosphere memetic terms and conditions.
