MeMe - Food for gossip


The lovely Ivy from Kopiaste has just tagged me for my very first MeMe - Food for gossip. Some of these questions have really got me thinking - for example, what would I do if I were a millionaire? If anyone can tell me how to become one other than by winning the lottery, I'd welcome your thoughts ;)

In the meantime, here are the MeMe questions and my answers, which reveal a little bit more about me:

What were you doing 10 years ago?

I was languishing as a newly admitted solicitor in the property and finance section of a law firm - bleck!

What were you doing 1 year ago?

I was still in the honeymoon phase of my current role with a telecommunications company.

Five snacks you enjoy:

Wow, it is soooo hard to only pick five. However, based on what I regularly snack on (rather than what are my all time favourite snacks, which overlaps only partially with this list!), I would say:

1. Chocolate (my all time favourite!)

2. Lollies (especially chewy fruity things)

3. Rice crackers with cottage cheese or flavoured philly

4. Home-made muffins (for morning tea at work)

5. Fruit

Five things you would do if you were a millionaire:

I will assume for this purpose that "millionaire" means a modest one million or so, rather than having absolute mega bucks.

1. Pay off my mortgage.

2. Buy my family new cars and take them on a nice holiday by the sea.

3. Travel the world for 6 months or so (to experience things rather than to stay in fancy places).

4. Make a charitable donation or two.

5. Invest the rest.

Five bad habits:

1. I drink Diet Coke or Coke Zero at every meal, including breakfast.

2. I often supplement my breakfast cereal with a couple of squares of chocolate or some lollies.

(Hey, I never said that I was a saint!)

3. I buy new gadgets and cookbooks on impulse that I rarely/never use.

4. When I get a "bee in my bonnet", I can't rest until I have dealt with it.

5. I have an ironing pile the size of Mt Everest, and only iron as I go.

Five things you like doing:

1. Cooking and baking (of course!)

2. Blogging/surfing the Net

3. Listening to music

4. Clothes shopping

5. Going to the movies

Five things you would never wear again:

1. Huge shoulder pads

2. Enormous baggy T-shirts

3. Fluoro anything

4. Pastel plastic spectacle frames

5. Grandma perms

Five favorite toys:

1. Computer

2. Digital camera

3. Stand mixer

4. Food processor

5. DVD player

Enough about me! I now tag the following 5 people to complete this MeMe (apologies if you already have):


1. Rosie of Rosie Bakes a Peace of Cake


2. Stephanie of Dispensing Happiness


3. Tammy of Wee Treats by Tammy


4. Susan of Sticky, Gooey, Creamy, Chewy


5. Emiline
of Sugar Plum

Emiline said...

Oh shucks! I've already done this one! Thanks though. I did it....like a week and a half ago.

So, no more shoulder pads and grandma perms???
Come on....

Baggy T-shirts sound kind of nice to me. Comfortable and I feel mighty skinny in them.

Cakelaw said...

Hi Tammy, You can do it in your own time - no rush, just whenever you get a spare moment to do it.

Hi Gretchen, those were the bad old days, weren't they!

Cakelaw said...

Rosie, I await your answers with interest!

I hear ya about the big T-shirts Emiline - in my vanity, I'm thinking about some pretty bad photos of me wearing them.
