I blame Tara


I think I said that before, but as I was given the official chance by That Girl: I blame Tara.  For luring me into this world, welcoming me with open arms and with the utmost enthusiasm, and for making me smile, laugh and cry into my coffee mug.

And I blame her for the Meme, which just comes along nicely as my blogging brain seems to have gone blank for the moment.

Ladies and Gents: The I blame Tara Meme

1. Who is the hottest movie star? Oh oh. Now this blows my cover straight away. I am not that much into movies. I just can’t sit still in front of the telly for longer than half an hour. Owen Wilson?

2. Apart from your house and your car, what’s the most expensive item you’ve ever bought? Erm, erm. There goes another bit of my cover. How hideous does it make me look, if I’d admit to have spent more money on a handbag than a computer?

3. What’s your most treasured memory? Walking down the aisle, seeing big M standing there and waiting for me.

4. What was the best gift you ever received as a child? That must have been my first ever new bicycle – as opposed to the hand-me-downs from my brother. I felt so free and cool…

5. What’s the biggest mistake you’ve made? Starting to smoke. I quit a few years ago, but I still regret to have ever started. There is absolutely nothing positive about smoking cigarettes.

6. 4 words to describe yourself. Optimistic, driven, curious, nerdy.

7. What was your highlight or lowlight of 2008? The house project – there were lots of high- and lowlights.

8. Favourite film? The Party with Peter Sellers. I told you I’m crap at this whole movie thing.

9. Tell me one thing I don’t know about you. I almost became a professional ballet dancer. I passed the audition for a well-known school and decided I didn’t want it anymore.

10. If you were a comic book/strip or cartoon character, who would you be? Mafalda

I am passing this Meme on to:

Reasons to be cheerful, 1, 2, 3


  1. Aargghh The Party… Birdy Num Num!! That film makes me pee my pants! And now I love you even more for spending more on a handbag than your computer!! At least you lasted longer than me at ballet.. approx one month I think it was! x

  2. BIRDY NUM NUM. Oh dear, got the giggles thinking about that too.
    Just happened to click back on my old last diet post and saw my embarrassing mistake re. addressing you incorrectly. V sorry about that. What a dweeb I am – that is what comes from trying to reply to comments with a 2 year old jumping on your lap. Lesson learned 😉

  3. @ModernMom: It’s always nice to meet likeminded people 🙂

    @Mommy Words: I had to look it up, too. Made the same mistake, hehe.

    @ThatGirl39: I can watch this film over and over and over again. I am easy to please, when it comes to films. Handbags is a different story…

    @Mothership: No worries. I have been called worse that that 😉

  4. I’ve done the handbag thing. Well actually Batman paid for it. I sold it on Ebay for €50 and got pissed on the proceeds.

    Cheers for the stick of rock. Campaign stuff will be with you later in the week and ohhhhh Toyboy is back 🙂 xx

  5. Absolutely perfect. I started this meme because I wanted to actually learn some new things about the bloggers out there and you’ve done just that my lovely.
    choosing The Party only goes to prove just how cool you really are.

  6. @Yammy Mummy: Money well spent 😉

    @Tara: That’s so nice of you to say. Especially when everybody else can come up with a culturally very important film with a socio-political background. When it comes to films, I can be quite shallow…

    @JennyMac: I thought my heart would jump out of my chest. Cheesy, but true 🙂

  7. @Tasha: You know Mafalda??? Isn’t she nerdy and lovely and you just want to pick her up and give her a cuddle? I miss her…
