Pollyanna and the Month-Old Meme

Lyda here. I stole this meme from hand eye crafts. As you can tell from the first link, I’m reading back posts of blogs, trying to catch up on everyone. Who found this meme on Knitting in the Shadows.


What are your current obsessions?

Pretty much the usual: TV, zombies, weirdness, and chocolate. Not necessary in that order. Oh, and sex of course, but that’s a given, right?

Which item from your wardrobe do you wear most often?

I don’t really have a “wardrobe” I have a “motley and very small group of clothes”. If you asked “what item do you like most” I’d say, my skull-and-crossbones sneakers, which always remind me of Gorgeous and Available Brother, Marin, and Muppet Treasure Island.

What’s for dinner?

Probably fast food. Again. Don’t judge.

What’s your greatest fear at the moment?
That I won’t find a place to live, and that I’ll never get my money situation straightened out – these two are neck-and-neck right now.

What are you listening to?

Silence. In the car, the radio – but completely avoiding Xmas music.

If you were a goddess what would you be?

An earth goddess, that’s me. Why, what have you heard?

What are your favorite holiday spots?

Where the redwoods are. Haven’t been in years. Love it so much I sob all the way home. Sedona is very cool too. Disneyland is a big favorite. But my happiest place for any holiday or vacation is anywhere with my son.

What are you reading right now?
Having just finished re-reading all of Terry Prachett’s books (for the billionth time) – except for his newest which I don’t have yet – I’m now re-reading all the Harry Potter books, in order (of course). I’m halfway through year 3. No library books for me until after I move. I’m terrified I’ll lose one of their books in the move.

What is your guilty pleasure?

Sitting on the couch watching TV all day in my nightgown. Stupid old monster movies, “America’s Top Model”, and almost any design/decorator show rank high on the guilty pleasure list.

Who or what makes you laugh?

My son, the Resident Sith Master. Anna-Liza. Gorgeous and Available Brother. The kittens. Monty Python. Mel Brooks. “South Park”. Old movies.

What is your favorite spring winter thing to do?

Snuggle on the couch under a blanket and watch movies.

What is the best thing you ate or drank?

Food has lost its taste. That happens to me when I’m stressed.

When was the last time you were tipsy?

Several years ago, after two very alcohol-filled margueritas with friends. RSM thought it was very funny.

What is your favourite ever film?

Oh, who can pick just one?

What is the biggest lesson you’ve learned from your children?

It isn’t the last Diet Coke in the world.

What song can’t you get out of your head?

The last song I heard, usually. Right now, I’ve got Michael Jackson songs running around in my head.

What book do you know you should read but refuse to?

Depressing classics – I refuse to read them, no matter how good they are.

What is your favourite color?

Blue, no green… Ahhhhh…. (as he falls into the chasm crossed by the Bridge of Death).

Actually, purple is probably it right now.

What do you like to think about while you are waiting to fall asleep?

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens…

Heh, got ya.

Usually I read myself to sleep, and so I think about the book, and sometimes put myself into the story. Which is why I’m reading about Hogwarts, because that is my ideal home and I need a home right now.
