The Drifting River meme

1. You're taking a three month holiday, no expenses spared, do you cruise the oceans or fly the skies?

I charter the Queen Mary11. I will have the luxury suites on the upper deck and all my blog mates get the rest of the ship. I order the Captain to cruise the coastlines of Australia (including Tassie) and New Zealand.

2. If you could ask God for one world-wide miracle, what would it be?

Turn the Arms and munitions dealers on the sex and drug traders, all out war with no collateral damage.

3. Would you choose sky diving or deep sea diving? (why?)

Deep sea diving with James Cameron. Well it's a no brainer isn't it? Would you stand around happy knowing I was hurtling towards earth with only a flimsy parachute on my back? It'd be the dinosaurs all over again.

4. Would you choose having your wishes granted or having the power to grant wishes?

Neither, people would hate you either way and who am I to do a goddess out of a job.

5. If you could pick a song to be a world anthem, what would it be?

Just "Imagine"

6. Do you dream in black and white or colour?

Vivid colour and widescreen, fortunately not 3-D.

7. Three-course meals or one-pot dinners?

I can't eat a 3 course meal, it's either entree and pudding or main. When I'm alone, it's everything in the one pot, eat with a fork but don't forget the linen napkin, I do have class.

8. Do you menu plan, shop for two weeks worth of ingredients, then serve up toast and jam for dinner?

Of course not, toast and jam is for afters. After the donuts, spring rolls and anything else I can cram in the microwave.

9. Do you dye your hair a totally different colour from what nature intended?

Dye is such an ugly word. One enhances one's natural colour or the colour one would have had if one had been given a choice.

10. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you choose?

What, move away from Godsowncountry, at least the bit that Gina doesn't own, sorry rent.

11. Do you change your home decor to suit the seasons or do you just leave things as they are year in year out?

If something doesn't stick out like a sore thumb then it's decor'd to perfection. I move nothing, it disturbs the dust bunnies.

You are correct in your last answer. Moving things mean you have to clean where they were. Ignorance is bliss.

Kath Lockett said...

I see that you, Andrew and I are on exactly the same page regarding dust bunnies.

"Would you stand around happy knowing I was hurtling towards earth with only a flimsy parachute on my back? It'd be the dinosaurs all over again." Thanks to THAT line, I snorted muesli up my nose!

River said...

I love your answers and I'm particularly happy that you've invited all of us along on the cruise.
I tend to not change things either, once I've found their permanent home. Having said that, I've lived here 10 months now, and I've rearranged the pantry 10 times. Just can't get it right.

I LOL-ed outloud with that sky diving answer.

The Elephant's Child said...

No-one in their right minds would ever, ever accuse you of a lack of class. Not if they wanted to live that is.

Behold Miss J,
Quoth he,
hath tin knee,
Doth she.


But oh what talk!
When she doth her bum walk!
At Southland
For all to see.

Andrew, I looked around after I wrote that and I couldn't move anything. I'm stuck until the border leaves.

Kath, it's worse with wooden floors, at least with carpet they can look like part of the pattern.

River, the pantry is one of those places that never seem right. I picked up a jar, everything is in glass jars, and the date I'd written was 1995. A good clean out here is indicated.

Honestly Jayne, you first have to get me in a plane and then wild elephants wouldn't get me through that door until I'd seen the ground not moving for at least 10 minutes.

EC, so classy all the time. I'm at the computer, hair still uncombed, dressing gown on and wearing my wool cape because it's still cold in the study. Not forgetting the daggy slippers either.

Rochester, have you looked at the floors at Southland? There's no 30 second rule if you drop something there.

Robbert, whatever you're smoking I could do with some.

I don't know how that got here, it's a page from my personal diary of last week and needs corrections. I did copy it from Word and somehow it landed here.
