Well goodness gracious me...

Well goodness gracious me, this is my 300th post! And I'm doing a me-me to mark the occasion! I've been tagged for a couple recently - 8 random things (which I did when it was called 6 weird things) and this one, which I don't think has a name.

1. Name one person who made you laugh last night.
I'm not sure that I did laugh last night. I was home alone watching serious TV and crocheting. Not exactly laugh-inducing material!

2.What were you doing at 0800?
Looking for my coffee mug in the kitchen at work. Almost getting cross because I thought someone might have used it (I hate that!) but then I found it (lucky, because seriously, life on this planet would end if someone used my coffee mug!!)

3. What were you doing 30 minutes ago?
Logging on to my computer at work (which I do and then I go and make my coffee!)

4. What happened to you in 2006?
Like Bells, I started a blog! And my stash collection. And my knitting book obsession. And I knit my first sock!

5. What was the last thing you said out loud?

6. How many beverages did you have today?
So far, half a coffee. I'll have another coffee this afternoon (usually at around 3pm) and might have a cup of tea tonight after dinner.

7. What color is your hairbrush?
Umm, I think it is dark brown tortoiseshellish. It's a Mason-Pearson hairbrush.

8. What was the last thing you paid for?
A cheesymite scroll from Baker's Delight. A recent discovery. I've always LOVED vegemite and cheese toasted sandwiches and so these are just perfect!

9. Where were you last night?
Home. Alone. While my husband was watching David Beckham at the Olympic Stadium. Hmph.

10 What color is your front door?
Cream and glass panels

11. Where do you keep your change?
In a little red change purse my MIL gave me for Christmas one year. My husband, on the other hand, keeps his in:
-a drawer in the dressing table
-a glass tray on the telephone cupboard table thingy in the kitchen
-his wallet
-his pockets
-my bedside table
-the windowsill in the bedroom
-the floor in the bedroom
-down the back of the lounge
-on the coffee table in the loungeroom
-on the hall table
-on the cabinet in the front loungeroom
-at the bottom of his computer bag
-in the console of the car
-in the console of the other car
-on the floor of both cars
-on the seats of both cars, and
-on his desk (probably...I try not to go into his study too much!)

12.What’s the weather like today?
Cloudy and a bit cool, although it should fine up later in the day. Predicted 24 degC.

13. What’s the best ice-cream flavor?
Homer Hudson Chocolate Rock. When I was at Uni, a friend and I tried to eat a whole tub each in one sitting (they are 500mls). Neither of us could but gosh it was good to try! A great pleasure of my life has been eating HH straight out of the tub with my dad.

14. What excites you?
Shoes; Surprises; Sock yarn; Sparling wine (Pop! Weeeeeeeeeeeeee!).

15. Do you want to cut your hair?
Not particularly (I mean, apart from the regular trim). I would love to dye it though. Bright red. I think it'd be fab. But I'd have to cut it into a bob to carry that off I reckon.

16. Are you over the age of 25?
Yep. And glad of it. I'm a much better person now I think. And I've still got a loooong way to go!

17. Do you talk a lot?

19. Do you know anyone named Steven?

20. Do you make up your own words?
Well, I've always claimed Goober as one of my own, but I know it's used elsewhere! I probably intentionally misprounce words rather than make up my own, generally. You know, like sWord, aRKsk, that sort of thing. (Should I really advertise to the world that I am an infant?)

21. Are you a jealous person?
Yes but not in an evil way.

22. Name a friend whose name starts with the letter "A."

23. Name a friend whose name starts with the letter "K."

24. Who’s the first person on your received call list?
Um, I don't even know how to find that on my phone. It's probably husby.

25. What does the last text message you received say?
From a work colleague to let me know her grandfather did not have a heart attack and that it was a false alarm and so she would be at work today.

26. Do you chew on your straw?
No! Ick! Ewwww!

27. Do you have curly hair?
No. My mum always wished I did when I was a kid and of course I always rebelled against that, as you do. Of course, now I know mum was right and I wish I had curly hair (Nicole K, why oh why do you always straighten your fab hair? And why dye the crap out of your hair too, while I'm at it!)

28. Where’s the next place you’re going to?
My weekly massage at 11am. I do have a great workplace (I do have to pay for the massage though!!)

29. Who’s the rudest person in your life?

30. What was the last thing you ate?
A cheesymite scroll, for breakfast. If I get to work before 8am (which is when they pack the breakfast away), I grab weetbix from the kitchen here but I thought I was running late so I bought the scroll on the way.

31. Will you get married in the future?
Probably not (heh! Don't tell Husby I said that!)

32. What’s the best movie you’ve seen in the past 2 weeks?
I started watching Puberty Blues on Foxtel on the weekend but it was just too painful for words, so I didn't continue. Too too true about schoolgirls and too too sad.

33. Is there anyone you like right now?
All my friends, my fave bloggers, Jess & Casey from Ravelry, the people at Blue Moon Fibre Arts (squeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! STR!!), Daphne from The Knittery, some of my work colleagues, Julia Gillard, my mum, my cat. Oh, yeah, and Husby. I definitely like him.

36. Did you cry today?
Not yet. But hopefully not.

37. Why did you answer and post this?
Why not?

And if that's not enought for you, feel free to read 100 things about me (which, in a complete coincidence, I did for my 200th post!) might need some matchsticks to keep your eyes open though!

I enjoy this meme because you do just find out the most interesting things. Your workplace does sound fabulous, for work and all. They feed you breakfast? And offer massages during work hours? My goodness.

I think vegemite may be one of those things that just doesn't cross the cultural divide....

Bells said...

The twin thing continues! Cheese and vegemite! Yum! It's second only to peanut butter for me.

You have a weekly massage? How is it I have known you for almost a year and we chat all day I didn't know this!? There you go!

Nora said...

Cheese and veg - me too! And Mr BDK was at the soccer last night - WE WON!!

Kristie said...

What's wrong with 25yo's?!
And I suggest we make the next meet all about the cocktails, yes?
And kristie starts with a K. hmph.

MadMad said...

Congrats on 300! I have never had a vegemite sandwich... (though now I'll have that song going in my head all day). But I guess I should try one! WWND? Does she like them?

Kate said...

Love that small change location list. We sort of have the same thing but for some reason whenever Him Indoors needs a bus fair it's all evaporated and he ends up raiding my piggy bank. Pooh.

michele said...

i love your meme's. they always make me laugh. the list of where your husband keeps his change is priceless.

and wow they serve breakfast at your work. they should serve it until 11 though hey.

black shoes from previous post get an approving nod.

R'nee said...

Woo-hoo! I'm a friend! :-)

cheesy vegemite scrolls yum yum yum.
Husby wasn't the only one watching Mr Beckham at the footy stadium....

Georgie said...

I cant believe cheesymite scrolls are a only RECENT discovery - they have been one of my main food groups for years! PJ and I share one while we do the supermarket shopping on Fridays - there's usually an unseemly tussle over the best bit (the middle part) in the cereal aisle....

Oh, and congrats on 300 posts!!

Queen of the froggers said...

I liked that little insight into your day! never heard of cheesymeite scrolls!! :/

Michelle said...

Yeah! Julie Gillard! And congratulations on your 300th post!

Thank you very much for the gorgeous project bag I won as part of the SSOS! I had been meaning to make myself one for ages, but you've let me off the hook for now!

Snoozen said...

Congratulations on your 300th post, something for me to inspire to, finding it hard to post more than once a week at present.

So many things in common apart from having Arn(y) as a friend! I was also invited to see David Beckham but missed out due to Hs' workload. The kids love cheesymite scrolls. I had very curly hair and wanted it straight, now it has gone frizzy straight and I wonder what it would look like curly, go figure.

Anonymous said...

VERY intersting meme...I really liked these questions. I also wonder that about Nicole Kidman; her natural hair was just gorgeous.

Melinda said...

Thanks for the wonderful tape measure - it's so lovely to recieve hand made gifts! I will treasure it!

Sarah said...

Congratulations, I hope you enjoy the bits and pieces.
