Tagged! Phew



Tea and boob cake. My favourite
Thank you to the incomparable JenJen for tagging me, and relieving me of writer's block. 'Tagging' is a new American thing, which means you answer terrifically intimate questions about yourself, then tag some other poor sods.

I beefed up the list a bit.

1. What is your current obsession?
15 across: 'Nasty, nasty authors cut through weed' (5,1,5)1

2. What are you wearing today?
Carpet slippers and a floppy hat and nothing else. Well, it's Sunday. Or at least it was last time I looked

3. What do you think about the person who tagged you?
JenJen! Toppest of the top bananas.

4. If you could have a house totally paid for, fully furnished anywhere in the world, where would you like it to be?
Is the furniture from Ikea? If so, no thanks.

5. What's your favorite quote?
", closely followed by '

6. Who do you want to meet right now?
Nobody. Neither would you if you were wearing carpet slippers and a floppy hat

7. What's your favorite magazine?
The Economist, but I tuck in a copy of 'Jugs 3D' on long train journeys. You can't tell

8. What do your friends call you most commonly?
Friends?

9. Would you prefer coffee or tea?
Oh! Tea please. I think I'd like one of those lesbian jobs, like ginseng and jojoba, or aloe vera and euphonium. No sugar.

10. What makes you go wild?
Tea

11. Who's your favourite deep sea diver?
Jacques Cousteau

12. Is that a twiglet in your pocket or are you glad to see me?
It's a twiglet

14. Are you superstitious?
Certainly not


Today I'm tagging M's. That's MiMi, Mme DeFarge, Marla, Magda, mo, and Moooooooooog. Fill your boots, team

  3. Pardon me, UG but I thought you said you weren't wearing any thing other than a hat and slippers.

    (Just so you know, you will be paying for my shrink later in life, because I am SO going to need one.)

  4. I am still pondering the visual of your outfit LOL.

  5. You are a riot, UG. I absolutely exploded with "closely followed by". Rock on!

  6. IKEA gets such a bad wrap. A Swedish friend of mine often goes there merely to get the feeling of being back in her homeland.

    Plus I find their desks most agreeable. That's all.

  7. Every interesting UberG. A few things however.

    I am stealing this for a rainy day even though you didn't tag me. "ME" begins with an "m" however, so I think I'm ok.

    Secondly, IKEA rocks. Sure the stuff might not be top quality but it doesn't pretend to be. It's stylish and easy to change regularly for low cost and they're budget. All things I approve of. Not that there's anything wrong with being a FUDDY DUDDY who doesn't appreciate modern chic of course.

    Haha, see what I did? I totally insulted you by pretending to not insult you. I win. :)

  8. Ha! I love destroying meme's! Good job.

    Stop playing with the twiglet and get back to your writing.

    Remind me not to sit on your furniture if I ever visit you.

    IKEA is like stepping into another dimension.

  9. Congratulations Urber! Finally someone has given you to cure your Bloggers Block!
    I was tagged three times in two weeks with that "Lucky 8" thingy, but, although I did mean to do them, I forgot who sent them.
    So, all you who sent them to me...sorry!
    Do you really wear carpet slippers and a floppy hat, and nothing else? (No fashion sense, no dignity, and probably very chilly!)

  10. Hey, how do you do footnotes on blogs? I'd quite like to do that.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Hey! I have a couch from Ikea. It's orange though and funky honest. It surpasses their normal build yourself tat.

    Also the idea of anything featuring 3D jugs made 'The Captain' jump around like a Mexican jumping bean.

  13. "...then tag some other poor sods."
