I've Been Tagged
I've been tagged by my dear friend Ann Best Memoir Writer. Then I'm to tag three of my friends. Watch out!
Here are the questions:
If you could go back in time and relive one moment, what would it be?
Flying up the Cote D'Azur on a dazzling winter's day. The pilot cruised over the French Riveria while I was jumping up and down in my seat with excitement as I noted the jewelled cities down below after we'd cross the snowy Alps and southern Provence - there's St Raphael, there's St Tropez, there's Cannes, there's Antibes, there's Nice, there's Monaco, back to Nice. Woo hoo! I relive that perfect moment whenever I go into my dreamy travel zone.
If you could go back in time and change one thing, what would it be?
Hm, I don't want to be incredibly boring. I would like to come up with something excruciatingly funny or with shock value, but I live by the philosophy that no experience is wasted, so everything I've done, whether considered bad or good has gone toward making me who I am. (I was going to study journalism after school, but went into teaching instead. What a fantastic experience! And I studied journalism externally just a couple of years ago - who said you can't have your cake...)
What movie/tv character do you most resemble in personality?
I've always thought I was a bit like Meg Ryan in type, but I'd much rather she grew old disgracefully rather than succuming to the needle or whatever she does these days. Pressure! Pressure! Maybe I'm channelling Diane Keaton whom I also adore - 'This is my face. Get used to it!' (from the movie The Women with Meg Ryan.)
If you could push one person off a cliff and get away with it who would it be?
I'm sorry, there's no way I could even consider this. I couldn't even throw a robot off a cliff (unless he didn't do the vacuuming properly, then I might consider it, hmmmmmm.)
Name one habit you want to change in yourself.
Oh this always leads me to food and drink. I've conquered my alcohol addiction, ha ha, now I wish I could conquer chocolate, but how can I? That's asking a bit much!
I'm adding a disclaimer! Some people have taken me literally, whoops! No, I've never been an alcoholic. I've just cut down my one glass of wine a day by half by adding tonic water, big drinker that I am! You can hold off the AA books for now...thanks for your concern...that's what I get for being a joker!!!
Describe yourself in one word.
Describe the person who named you in this meme in one word.
Why do you blog? Answer in one sentence.
I originally started blogging when I returned from overseas travels in 2004 and wanted to write about my experiences with the view to writing a travel memoir/narrative in the future, but of course now I blog because I love the friends I've made and I learn so much and this had to be a very long sentence.
Now I have to name at least 3 people to send this meme to and inform them. I have so many lovely bloggers I could pass this onto, but I'll pass it onto 3 Romantic Friday Writers who have supported me in mine and Francine's latest project of getting romantic flash fiction out there on a regular basis.
Looking forward to what you have to say, ladies, and everyone else who'd like to tell me about themselves. How would you answer these questions?
