Dancin Fool's Meme

Dancin' Fool tagged me for her meme and I could not resist.

1. If you could have super powers what would they be and what would you do with them? (Please feel free to be selfish, you do not have to save the world!)

I get multiple super powers! Ooo! Fun! I have always wanted the power of telekinesis, being able to move objects with the mind. This skill would come in handy when I forget my glasses across the room or want to lift the couch while I vacuum underneath it. I think being able to fly would be my second choice. To soar the skies and feel the wind in my hair . . . Plus I could save a person falling from a burning plane if the occasion arose. Sometimes I wish I could read minds, but that is a tricky power to have. It is easy to abuse and might not be so pleasant at times. I also would not mind having healing abilities--being able to heal others, I mean.

2. Were you to find yourself stranded on an island with a CD could happen...what would your top 10 bloggers island discs be?

Oh dear! This is a revealing question, isn't it? I can see the eyes rolling and groans now as you scroll down my list. I suppose it cannot be a CD of my own compilation, could it? What about books on CD? I'll keep my list to music this time around . . . And are there enough batteries to last for however long I'm stranded? I definitely would need variety. I get bored too easily.

The Runaway Bride soundtrack

3. If you were a smell what would it be?

The first rain.

4. What bird would you most like to be?

A hummingbird.

5. If you were a bird who's head would you poo on?

I am not sure I want to say! What if the person stumbles across my blog? All I will say is that it is a certain someone who annoys me no end at the office with all the gossiping and the holier than thou attitude. You know who you are.

6. Are there any foods that your body craves?

Not at the moment. I'm actually rather full right now. My cravings tend to be more for the salty foods--pretzels, chips, and crackers. Occasionally I crave something sweet. Oh, and bread. I often crave that.

7. What's your favourite time of year?

I'm partial to the autumn season really, but I especially love the transition of the seasons from summer into fall.

8. What's your favourite time of day?

It depends on the day of the week. On a work day, the late afternoons are my favorite time of day. On my off days and on the weekends, I prefer the early mornings.

9. If a rest is as good as a change which would you choose?

This is a tough one. It really depends on what has been going on in my life. Sometimes a change is preferrable. I just want to get away, do something different, and need a change. Other times, when I have been going nonstop and am exhausted, a rest is much more desirable.

10. If you could have a dinner party and invite any 5 people from the past or present who would they be? (Living or deceased.)

My husband is an absolute must. He is much more the socialite than I am and can carry on a conversation with just about anyone. I tend to be shy around people I do not know well. Elizabeth Jane Cochrane (aka Nellie Bly) is a woman I have always wanted to meet and talk to. If I had one, she'd be on my top ten most admired women's list. I think author Douglas Adams would be an interesting guest to add to the mix (and my husband would really like to chat with him). Oh, and I always invite Michael Connelly and Charlaine Harris to these fictious get togethers. They are must have guests as two of my favorite authors.

If you are reading this and have not already participated, consider yourself tagged! I look forward to reading your responses.


  1. What a fun meme! Oh and welcome back. I hope you had a great time on vacation.

  2. Oh, this looks like a lot of fun! I'm with you...I crave bread! Especially home-made bread. I could NEVER go on a no-carb diet!!

  3. We have a few things in common. I love Evanescence too, and Les Mis. I also usually crave salty food, although occasionally chocolate. I quite like Fall too. I'm looking forward to when it finally cools off and the leaves turn.

  4. Douglas Adams would have made a great dinner guest, I have to agree with that one. I might try this meme for Friday (going to take some thinking though).

  5. Nikki - I enjoyed doing it. :-) Thanks. I wasn't so much on vacation as just away from the computer for awhile to rest and do some much needed healing. I'm actually on vacation right now. Although it's not turning into much, I'm afraid. My husband's car is ruining all my plans.

  6. Kookie - I think so too. He's one of my husband's favorites and I enjoyed his Hitchhiker's books myself. :-)

  7. Interesting meme! Enjoyed reading your answers, Wendy! I too love the transition of the seasons from summer into beautiful! Too bad that we don't get to see it here. :(

  8. Stephanie - I love homemade bread! I'm with you, I couldn't go on a no-carb diet. I think that's why I took so well to Weight Watchers.

    Tanabata - I love Evanescence--the lead singer has such a beautiful voice and it's a good contrast to the more heavy metal sound to their music. I sometimes do need chocolate too. :-) I'm ready for the weather to cool too. It's been especially hot in my part of the world lately.

    Melody - Thanks! It's not much of a visual change where I live either, although the weather does begin to change, which is nice. There's a distinct difference in the air when one season changes over into the other.

  9. Douglas Adams would be wonderful to talk to. I wish he were still around :(

    I love Simon & Garfunkel, and the Concert in Central Park is great!

  10. Now that's a cool meme. :) I'd want teleportation as an ability. And maybe invulnerability. Also, can I call it a superpower to be able to eat anything but still stay at a healthy weight?

    As for cravings, we'll go back to that last bit with mint chocolate chip ice cream. I'm a sucker for Breyer's.

  11. Nymeth - I think he would be great to have at a dinner party. :-) Yes, I really do like Simon & Garfunkel too. :-)

    Heather - Teleportation would be a great ability to have! I agree with you about wanting one that would allow you to eat whatever you want without gaining weight. I'm sure a lot of people would want that!

    Ice cream . . . I do crave that now and then too. My husband's favorite is mint chocolate chip. :-)

  12. Hello! Thanks for doing this and great answers. It is so much fun chasing this meme!

    Jesus Christ Superstar! What an album, I may have to revise my list! And Douglas Adams is also an excellent choice!

    I am quite suprised to read some of the answers for the rest or change question.

    Anyway, thanks again! Bye for now!

  13. Dancin' Fool - Thank you for coming up with it! It's been a lot of fun to read other people's responses, I agree. :-)
