Yay for Memes

Thank you JerseyGirl for posting this meme. With no time for real blogging lately, the meme is a handy little fallback.

1. When you look at yourself in the mirror, what's the first thing you look at?
I check for zits. Yes, I'm going on 40 and I still get zits. And people wonder why I say I'm a loser.

2. How much cash do you have on you right now?
One dollar in change, which I wouldn't have if the soda machine at school actually worked.

3. What's a word that rhymes with "TEST"?

4. Favourite plant?

5. Who is the 4th person on your missed call list on your cell phone?
Me. Figure that one out.

6. What is your main ring tone on your phone?
The theme from I Dream of Jeannie.

7. What shirt are you wearing?
The tee shirt from the cafe I worked at in Sydney.

8. Do you "label" yourself?
Yes, so my students know my name. That's probably not the answer the writer of this was looking for.

9. Name brand of your shoes currently wearing?

10. Do you prefer a bright or dark room?
Dark. It's that whole wannabe vampire thing.

11. What did you have for breakfast?
Tunafish. Shut up.

13. What were you doing at midnight last night?
I was completely unconscious.

(What happened to number 12?)

14. What did your last text message you received on your cell phone say?
Thank you for choosing Cingular Wireless.

15. Do you ever click on "Pop Ups" or Banners?

16. What's an expression that you say a lot?
There ya go.

17. Who told you they loved you last?
One of my students. :)

18. Last furry thing you touched?
Is this a trick question?

19. How many hours a week do you work?
Lately, more than I can count.

20. How many rolls of film do you need to get developed?
Who wrote these questions?

21. Favourite age you have been so far?
19. No, 24. No, 26. Let's just say the years from 18-26 were golden.

22. Your worst enemy?
The zit man.

23. What is your current desk top picture?
Wanna see? Click here.

24. What was the last thing you said to someone?
Thank you. No, you don't need to carry my groceries out. I can do it.

25. If you had to choose between a million bucks or to be able to go back in time and fix all your mistakes which would you choose?
Oh I would so go back in time!!! I would invent post-it notes and be worth billions. Then I could blog all day. And take care of my and Brad's babies.

I like your desktop pic - in fact I've nicked it. So there. Apparently sleeping with vaseline smeared all over your face every night for a month is good for zits. I'm just the messenger. :)

Brookelina said...

Owl! You're back! Yay! I'm glad you nicked the pic. It's too beautiful, it has to be shared.

I'm going to pass on the Vaseline idea. But hey, thanks for the thought.

Me too, going on 40 and get zits on my forehead. Must be a hormone thing!

You've been a teacher for what -- two days -- and some kid already said he loved you? Do you pass out candy at the end of the day?

Brookelina said...

RM - damn hormones!

Spammers - all spam comments will be deleted the minute I see them. So stop doing it you obnoxious fuckwits.

Brookelina said...

Neil - first graders are not shy about throwing around the "L" word. It's a great place to go if you need an ego boost. Plus you're usually smarter than most of them too.

I love you. I honestly love you.

darth said...

what was it about those ages..actually, for me maybe 23-27 or so..not sure why, i just remember them fondly.

ok, i don't really remember stuff that far back clearly.

gone said...

This meme is pretty random.

Neil said...

Did you know that the "I Dream of Jeannie" song actually had lyrics?

Jeannie, fresh as a daisy.
Just love how she obeys me,
Does things that just amaze me so.

She smiles, Presto the rain goes.
She blinks, up come the rainbows.
Cars stop, even the train goes slow.

When she goes by
She paints sunshine on every rafter,
Sprinkles the air with laughter,
We're close as a quarter after three.

There's no one like

Jeannie. I'll introduce her,
To you, but it's no use, sir,
Cause my Jeannie's in love with me.

Isn't that cute, Jeannie -- uh, I mean Brooke?

gone said...

Very random. But I loved the aswers you gave. I was LOL when you answered

Tunafish.Shut up.

Jayleigh said...

Funny. I'm with ya on the post its! Romy and Michelle!

Lushy said...

Wow...that picture is amazing!

Egan said...

Let me know if you need any help carrying tunafish to your car on your next grocery trip. You can text message me anytime if know what I mean.

Lo Lo Lova said...

Neil: where did you find those lyrics? That's so cool!

Brooke: Congrats on being told you are loved. So cute!!

TrueJerseyGirl said...

Glad you did the meme! I too was stumped for something to say so I was glad someone had the meme posted!

Girl With An Alibi said...

I see absolutely nothing wrong with Tuna for breakfast. I wish I had some right now. Course if I did I'd be eating it for lunch.

Gordy said...

Well Thereyago!

Great picture BTW, I have saved the site and will cruise it later.

I like the randomness of this. I have someone waiting to be interviewed on my site right now and I am crap at coming up with random or good questions.

You do realise of course that all us sad blogging blokes love you too, right?

Hope your first week as a teacher is going well.

JJ said...

It's weird how sympatico we are.

On the other hand, Brad's babies? WTF? YNH can't have my ass but you can have Brad's babies? I feel our first fight coming on, SMG.

Brookelina said...

Ubie - I'm all vaklempt now.

Darth - we were young and dumb and fearless. Nothing better than that.

Jacob - is random bad? Did you just diss me?

Neil - did you just make that up? lol

Sarah - the one day I have a breakfast like that!

JL - yes!!! I knew someone would get that reference!

Lushy - all his stuff is amazing. I've stolen everything from his site.

Egan - you are such a gentleman.

LoLo and TJ - thanks to both of you!

GWA - mmmmm...tuna.

Gordy - have I told you lately what a doll you are? And how much better your legs are than mine?

JJ - actually it was Nick who wanted your ass. You need to keep your boyfriends in order. And then of course there was your date with Neil. You think I've forgotten?!?

MoDigli said...

man.... I have to check for zits, too! The ironic part: as a teen I had flawless skin. Now, since my late 20s, I've been struggling with break outs. ... ahhhhhgggg! ....

Gordy said...

That's only cos you haven't seen them up close. I am sure your's are much more shapely and slightly less hairy!

im here somewhere said...

i dont like him with long hair. i think his hottest look was in fight club..

Marel Lecone said...

Great list. I have to admit that I have not been in the mood for lists lately but this one was good. Off subject--I can't believe you're going on 40--you have such youthfulness in your writing. Not that 40 is even close to being not youthful. I'm 33--I don't feel like I am approaching 40, for some reason. Although my young eye doctor told me over a week ago, that I am approaching forty. I told her, very serious and somber, "no one has ever said those words to me." :) Talk to you later.

JJ said...

Oh, yeah, it was Nick with baseball league. Neil was the... okay, we'll just think of it as an open realtionship. Carry on.

The Dummy said...

Brilliant answer for #25! Can't pull a fast one on you, can we?! :)

Anonymous said...

Pretty random questions there, but interesting answers.

WBB has signed off from blogging. I'll be popping in to keep an eye on you guys tho'. I've taken a "job" as a staff writer for driverchris . So you may still catch the non-sensical ravings of a loudmouth malcontent over there if you're so inclined.

Lee Ann said...

What was the last furry thing that you touched? Cute post!

joanne said...

Oh wow! Me too. I had perfect skin till I hit 20, then it broke out for a few years, stabilized till I was 30. Now, I am a pizza face.

Brookelina said...

MoMo and JoJo - yet another thing we all have in common!

Gordy - I'm quite relieved to hear that you don't shave your legs. I was a little concerned after that Bruce Willis comment on your blog.

Lilred - I like him any way. But in Fight Club he was ripped....mmmmmmm.

Marel - I am told all the time that I look younger than I am. My reply is that I'm immature. LOL Now you have proven me right! I even write younger!

JJ - open is good. I'm sure MLA will appreciate that.

DD - a million dollars doesn't amound to much these days!

BOB!!!!!!!!! You can't leave!!!!! The plants will die!!!

Lee Ann - lol. I liked it too! Feel free to use it on your blog.

Brookelina said...

Oh and Neil - "We're close as a quarter after three." HUH? Who writes this stuff?

Kris said...

Excellent call on the time travel and post-its! I'd like to go back in time and invent a really good diet bread. Then again, I guess I could probably do that now.

Anonymous said...

I tagged you on my blog. Come by and check it out.

Crystal said...

Orchids, yeah I was into those too until I found I could never get one to re-bloom.

Prométhiûs said...

hey great pic...Kudos blogger

Loz said...

Brooke I've come in at the end of a 37 comment post - I can't possibly catch up from here. You must post something new immediately so that I can join in! Or something less selfish.

mcgibfried said...

the zit man? is he still making enemies?

Übermilf said...

This post has become tiresome. I demand entertainment immediately.

Loz said...

I tried that a couple of days of Ubie

Brookelina said...

Fine. My flash fiction is up. Brats.

Shan'Chelle said...

Cool Brookey....I have stolen not only your meme but also your desktop picture. I guess I'm just a follower :-)
