Pas la meme chose

Pardon me for just assuming that the "meme" in "meme" is "meme". I'll run with it.

That Rivergirl tagged me, in her infinite wisdom. My assumption is it's because I have nothing to write about anymore. I also assume I am to tag others when done. I'll do it anyway, even if it's not la meme meme. Anyway, here goes nothing.

What are your top 3 favorite foods?
Coffee, though I think full caf is starting to take its toll, sushi, and anything seafood-ish. Does that include sushi, I wonder? So is that only two? If so, then, um, how about papadzules? Yeah, since this first question has already stumped me, I'll go with papadzules.

What was the last book you read and would you recommend it?
"No Country For Old Men" so now I won't see the movie. And yes I would recommend it, and did, to my brother.

What are your top 3 favorite places?
Okay. How about Merida (Mexico), Cannon Beach (Oregon), and the Coach store at Bridgeport.

What was the last lie you told?
White lie? Or really big lie? I guess it would be that I had plans for Easter, but it really wasn't a LIE, I mean, the way I phrased it wasn't really LYING, it was more like making a statement. Like this: Question: Shelia's having Easter dinner, are you coming? Answer: No, I was invited to a friend's house. See? Statement. I didn't say I was GOING to the friend's house.

What are your favorite 3 sports (to watch or participate in)?
Finally, something simple. Football, baseball and futbol.

What was the last movie you watched and would you recommend it?
I wish I could say "American Gangster" but it's not on OnDemand yet and my DVD player isn't hooked up. So I'd say the last full movie I watched was "The Player" for the 4000th time and yes, yes I would. It's awesome.

List 3 things you can see outside of the nearest window.
Well, it's night time. So I can see the fool who doesn't close his blinds but has to dress with the light on, a small tree, and puddles of rain.

Where was the last place you went?
Went? Um, work, the bank, and the Starbucks drive through on Cornell by the Streets of Tanasbourne.

What are your top 3 favorite “good causes” or charities?
Ciudad de la Alegria in Cancun, Habitat for Humanity (like I even volunteer, good Lord), and the Clara Jean foundation. Check 'em out.

What was the last thing you did for someone else?
Bought some flowers. :)

Name 3 places you have never been that you want to visit.
Ireland, Puerto Escondido and Canada. What the hell. I have two open chat windows going on right now and doing this meme right before bed time is pretty much killing me.

What was the last thing you threw in the garbage/recycling?
An empty cat food can.

Name 3 things on your bedside table.
A lamp, the demon alarm clock and a crystal pelican.

Describe or name the last piece of art you looked at.
Photos, actually, from a guy whose wife I work with - here's the link to his site. He has a store in Depoe Bay and his shit is the bomb.

What are the top 3 things that your job requires you to think about?
Top three? That is fucking HILARIOUS. If all I had to do was think of three TOP things, this job would be CAKE. I have to pretty much think about EVERYBODY ELSE'S PROBLEMS BUT MY OWN, I can't make a hair appointment, forget about going to the doctor, lunch, the bank, come on, it is ALL ABOUT EVERYONE ELSE. Top three? Who could sort that out, beyond everyone is an asshole. (I'm on a really busy desk this week...)

What was the last musical or theatrical event that you attended?
Somebody was playing bagpipes at the bar on the Saturday before St. Paddy's. Does that count?

What are the first 3 things you would do if you won the lottery?
First thing? Pay off my car and my Visa. Second, talk to a financial advisor. Third, move the hell out of Portland.

Describe or name the last serious injury or illness you had?
I'd like to say it was the polio, but alas it was a blockage in my colon because I ate too much cheese. It's true.

What are the top 3 things that you wish you could do?
I'll tell you what I WOULDN'T want to do - fit my fist in my mouth. That's just gnarly. But um I guess, I don't know, write well, speak fluent Spanish, and run a 5 minute mile. There.

What was the last thing that someone said to you that you will remember forever?
Hm. It's odd but I can't remember. Not right now, but I will. And I'll come back and edit, I promise. It's just, well, look what time it is! It's past my bedtime and all, and I'm slightly cranky, so I better think about it.

Thanks, RG. Sheesh. You don't need to do it, but I will tag Gabatcha, Heather, and Mexico Way again because she needs the double-tag.

Good night!

Um, would it be too much information if I shared that I actually can fit my whole fist in my mouth? I have little baby hands.

But this meme is something I can dig my teeth into, so I'm pleased to be tagged! My first thought was to start on it ASAP, but I really can't justify procrastinating anymore so I will get to it soon!

Melissa, holy hell, I can fit my fist in my mouth too...not because I have small hands but because I have a REALLY big mouth.

Joyce, thank you for this. I need the distraction. Didn't get any work done yesterday so might not have time until tomorrow.

And thank you for everything else, too. You brought me into the blogger age and I'm grateful.

Oh thanks for doing the meme, I love your answers, and you non-answers.

You are an evil woman.

That's all I have to say.

I've seen Jeff Jessings work before. He is excellent!

Thanks (belatedly) for the comments, kiddies. Heather that was a really nice thing to say, maybe that will be my "thing". And both you and Melissa crack me up - I thought only people from Wisconsin could do that! Janie, it's the truth, Kim, you're welcome, and Liz, ha! And Scott, if you ever make it out to Oregon, Jeff has a great gallery at the beach!
