Meme Catch Up

Have been tagged in two memes, or rather I have been tagged by two people for the same meme, and I haven't had a chance to reply. I have to admit that I am actually a meme virgin *blushes* so please be gentle with me on this, my first time.

1. What is your current obsession?
Food. It's always been a hobby bordering on being a favourite past time, but at the minute it is an actual obsession. Yes, I am seeking help, but I've turned to the fridge and I think it might have a secret agenda.

2. Which item of clothing do you wear often?
Jeans, or at least I would, if I had more of them that fit me. In winter I wear stripped socks a lot. I'll have to get back to you about summer. Perhaps next summer I will be able to answer bikinis once I have kicked my food obsession.

3. What's for dinner?
Given my answers to the previous two questions, I have to say that asking about dinner at this time is just cruel. For me, tonight is likely to be a crazy shake. Yep, I'm doing the meal replacement shakes again, as I had success with them before and do find them very convenient and dare I say that I actually like the flavours.

4. What are you listening to?
Chris Tomlin from my blog play list. He is a Christian artist and has a really lovely voice and songs full of passion. His song, Blessed Be, was one of the first actual songs that I learnt on the guitar and the songs of his that we sing at church are my absolute favourites. I have rather diverse tastes in music as I will be likely to hear from Cher, Bon Jovi, Metallica and probably all the way through to Lilly Allen from my play list before I finish writing this post.

5. Say something to the one that tagged you.
Jac is an intense, talented and awesome person and I love the beauty, intelligence and candour with which she shares her struggles and triumphs, both of which are greater than those around her could every truly understand or fully appreciate. Jac, I'd love to spend more time with you again in the real world, as opposed to just in Blogland. Drop me an email sometime so we can arrange to catch up, yeah? And Jen, who I first met in passing a few times at the cottage and who I got to know better at the Stroud retreat and who I have since come to know more and more through her moving blog posts. I see Jen as the quintessence of many of us in that she doesn't always see that she is the amazing, strong and talented person that those around her see her as. Her blog has helped me accept the same side of myself and therefore work towards being a stronger and more self-assured person. Jen, I'm really looking forward to continuing to get to know you and hope that will happen more at Stroud this year.

6. Favourite vacation spot?
Anywhere, I'm actually quite easily pleased and grateful whenever I get a chance to get away. We do a lot of weekends away as a family coz The Starchild is self employed so time off during the week is costly on two fronts but we are planning on having our first real actual vacation for almost two weeks very soon. I like going to different places but am also really looking forward to going back to Stroud in July.

7. What I'm reading right now?
A book called "I never metaphor I didn't like". The other book I borrowed from the library which I will be reading after this one is the Fred Nile autobiography and I have Scott Cunningham's 'Wicca: A Guide for the Solitary Practitioner' on my bedside table. Did I mention having diverse tastes before?

8. Four words to describe myself.

9.Guilty pleasure.
Food. I think we've already covered that.

10. What do you think you will feel about your life when all is said and done?
Something wise and profound for sure. I'll tell you all when I get there but for now I'll just analyse everything that's going on as that is just what I do.

11. What do you look forward to?
The changing seasons. Right now I am looking forward to the delicious feeling of stepping into a steaming hot shower, of sliding into a freshly made bed that is all warm and toasty from the electric blanket, of snuggling up on the lounge with a dooner and a hot cuppa and of being in the front passenger seat of car as it is speeding through the night with the heater on full on my feet and a thick jacket tucked up under my chin while I am leaning out the window so the crisp cold air blows through my hair, numbs my face and makes my eyes water. Hmmm, I think I was definitely a dog in a previous life.

Ok, I've now officially completed my first meme - was it as good for you as it was for me? Thanks for that Jac and Jen, I really enjoyed it. And now to tag some others:

Helen at Witchsymbol Take2 - I haven't seen you do any meme's so I didn't know if it was your thing but I'd love to hear your answers and I thought it would be something fun, positive and potentially non-baby related for you to think about for a little while.

Bianca at It Takes All Sorts To Make A World - I didn't want you to focus too much on your studies so thought this would be a fun way to distract you ☺

Deb at SunflowerBee - I've tagged Deb because I would really like to see her answers but I mostly want to see if I can make her swear about all of these stupid meme's.

Renata at Web of Wyrd - I think Renata would be one of the least likely people to post a meme and therefore one of the people that most of the people who know her would like to see the answers to. The challenge has thus been layed down!

Heidi at Into the Unknown - I love your posts and I miss you, Heidi's so am looking for any excuse to get you to post some more ☺

Wendy, that was just beautiful. You did an excellent job. Have you ever thought of pursuing a career in writing???

Thank you so much. Wow. Am blown away by what you wrote about me. I also admire you greatly, not least of which your positive and bubbly personality, I wish I could return to the 'cup half full' kind of girl that I feel i used to be. Thank you again. I am definately looking forward to spending time catching up in real life at Stroud. (if not before)
