Friday Fun: Tagged

I got tagged the other day by Nicky.

Tagging someone is something that people who own blogs do to other people who own blogs. It’s when what’s called an “internet meme” gets passed on from one person to the next to the next to the next… Some bit of information, or a joke, or a file, or a little questionnaire (in this case) gets passed through your online social network and travels all over the internet.

So, you’re saying to yourself, “Self, what does this have to do with the Friday Fun”?

Well, I don’t have a big social network out here on the Intertubes, so instead, I am tagging you all. You’re all tagged to be a part of this little meme. All you have to do is answer the questions, just like normal. I’ve left out the first two questions of the original meme, because I’m not a big believer in sharing really specific identifying personal information on the ‘net, and I added in two of my own, but otherwise… consider yourselves tagged!

  1. Food I love
  2. Places I’d rather be
  3. Movies I love
  4. TV shows I watch
  5. Books I love
  6. Things I do to relax
  7. Things that give me joy

See? Isn’t the internet just full of fun?

  3. I did fill this out but I think it got filtered out again. Hope BDH had a great day yesterday.

    Ed: Yep, that darn overactive spam filter! But here it is, safe and sound.

  4. 1. I love Italian food for the most part. Not a big fan of eggplant (tastes like teabags to me) but pretty much everything else. Greek food is so much fun. My mom’s spareribs, cabbage rolls, homemade soup. If there is good company than any food is good!
    2. I really enjoy living in Burlington but I would love to be in Greece, Italy, Portugal, Spain, Newfoundland, Vancouver Island, the Laurentians, Cape Cod….You have to be happy where you are but these are places that I love.
    3. The Colur Purple, The Sound of Music at Christmas, any Disney movie, To Kill a Mockingbird. I used to love going to the movies but lately what I find I am doing is renting a lot of foreign movies and of course I can’t remember the titles! The characters are just so much more alive and real. Not just fake hair and fake boobs and fake blood. You know what I mean?
    4. I used to love reading Louis L’Amour books. Right now I am just reading for relaxation and I am reading Faye Kellerman books. I enjoy mystery books. I really have to rethink my reading material!
    5. Well I read, listen to music, walk, take a bath.
    6. There are so many things that give me joy – my family can give me joy but also heartache. My animals – I get such a kick out them. My gardent – I love to look at the flowers. Music gives me joy.

  6. Cinn! I too LOVE A Year in Provence and all the Peter Mayle books – just hilarious. The first time Jrck went to France with me, he finally got it and started enjoying the Mayle books too!

    BUT, I had no idea that there is a mini-series… I’m going to have to look that up, and see if it’s out there on DVD.

    thanks for the tip – and the reply
    Cheers
    Nicky

  7. OMG Nicky, you HAVE to get the miniseries! It was done by A&E in 1992 or 1993 or something, starring the late great John Thaw and Lindsay Duncan, and it’s just fantastic.

    Chapters/Indigo always has it. That’s where I got my copy.

    It’s not very faithful to the book, except in essence, but it’s brilliant and charming and lovely. We enjoy it so much!

  8. 1. I love chocolate(what woman doesn’t)Vegetables done in a white sauce, Seafood. Lobster,King Crab Legs.
    2. Any place that is warm but not too hot.
    3. The Sound of Music.
    4. What is there to watch?
    5. Almost any book. I just finished two books by Sue Monk Kidd. The secret life of Bees and Mermaid Chair. Both good books.
    6. Read and golf and a little gardening.
    7. Grandchildren,beating hubby at golf and time with friends.
