Meme Again

Cindy, aka Baxterknits, has "challenged" me to a meme. Challenge accepted *G*

Here are the rules:Rules:* Answer at least three of the questions. Yes, I know a few look time-consuming and there are several of them. That's why I only ask for three. See? I'm nice!* Post them and the rules on your blog, and please link back to me here. Pretty please?*

Comment here telling me and the rest of our little party where you're at and link to yourself.That's all!* Oh yeah, don't forget to tag others!

What's the last book you read that you thought was really super, inspiring, you'd recommend it to most anyone?

Any of Jennifer Chiaverini's Quilters books. By chance one day, I bought 'Circle of Quilters', which is in the middle, and I immediately had to read more. 'Circle' tells of 5 quilters, how they came to quilting and how it has affected their lives. I'm not a quilter and don't want to be, but I found the stories to be extraordinarily similar to how I - and other knitters I've talked to - feel about knitting and its effect on us. You can get an omnibus of the first 3 novels for about $13 at Amazon, and I'm sure libraries carry these.

What food totally grosses you out, you'd never be able to touch it? Ew. Gag. *hurl*

Snakes or insects. Blech! I've eaten a lot of different kinds of game - elk, deer, antelope, rabbit, squirrel, and yes, Rocky Mountain oysters (no big deal) - and those are really good, especially when cooked properly. I've eaten snails and that's mostly garlic; I have no particular urge to eat more. Raw oysters, yep; DH and I enjoy them.

Did you ever watch a scary movie that frightened you so much you were afraid of the dark afterward? I mean like you're lying in bed trying to sleep, but you have to pee, but you're scared to get up. It doesn't have to be recently; could be when you were a kid. So what movie was it?

I don't usually watch scary movies, though the trailers for 'Jaws' freaked me out and I wouldn't to see it for years and years; finally saw it on cable. I think 'Wait Until Dark' is one of the scariest movies ever.

Is there a song that makes you dance every time you hear it? Would you tap you feet and sing along to it in public?

'Footloose', from the movie; 'Bailamos' by Enrique Iglesias (it's my ringtone on my cell); and 'Shall We Dance' from The King and I.

Tattoos: yes or no? Do you have any? Tell us! Do you think they're gross? TELL US!

Don't have, don't want, don't understand why others want them, especially those people who have big ones or all-over ones. In the words of Robert Heinlein and Michael, I don't grok it.

When's the last time you laughed so hard your ribs ached and/or you nearly peed yourself? What made you do it?

This little video from Cute Overload was the most recent.

Draw or doodle a picture of your pet(s) and post it if possible. Nothing fancy, don't be shy!

No drawing skills here. None.

Go through a stack or box of your old music. Stuff that you may not have heard in years. Pick one and tell us about it. Is it as good (or as bad) as you remember?

I've done some of this recently, to add to my iTunes library. Judy Collins - 'Both Sides Now', 'Send in the Clowns', 'Who Knows Where the Time Goes?' - all good folk. Chuck Mangione - 'Chase the Clouds Away', 'Feels So Good', etc. - oh, YEAH! Johnny Cash's Folsom Prison album - uh, no! (I lived in Wyoming for 10 years, had to listen).

Do you still sleep with a stuffed animal? We won't laugh!

No, but there are quite a few bears around here.

Ok, I'll tag smariek , TracyKM, and Joan If any of you eschew memes you're off the hook.

I watched a movie when I was babysitting one night (I was 13) where this guy keeps calling and asking the babysitter if she's checked the children, and it turns out he's in the house and has killed them. Horrible. The father of the kids I was sitting was a doctor and had a separate phone line in the upstairs office, which was exactly the situation in the movie, and when I heard what I was sure was a footstep upstairs, I hid in the hall closet and didn't come out until I heard the garage door open when the parents came home. No hero here, evidently.

Hokey mokey , I'll add this to my Meme queue. I just cleared an old one off my plate. :-)

I've done escargot and am indifferent to them. Raw oysters, I love.
