Comment with "Hit me, Meegs!"
• I'll respond by asking you five questions so I can get to know you better.
• Update your journal with the answers to the questions.
• Include this explanation in the post and offer to ask other people questions.

1. Is the inside of your car tidy or messy?

Right this minute?  Ack - messy, messy, messy.  Amongst my personal collection of around a gazillion cloth shopping bags (because I seem to end up buying a new one every time I go to the shops) I actually have rattling around in the back:  some non-perishable groceries (for my mum - the facility where she lives is in lock down because of a nasty bug going around so I can't visit her just yet); a stuffed parrot (a homeless mascot from a team thing I was in recently); a horse blanket (waiting to be returned to a friend - I don't have a horse btw); a black satin corselet (from  a costume thing I went to recently); four umbrellas (its rains a lot here) and a large jar of coins that I keep forgetting to take to the bank.  And lots of dog hair.

2. If money were no object (and your hubby agreed to move with you), where would you live?

Location:  right where I am.  Actual house: something bigger with a studio actually attached to central heating on some nice FLAT ground, not on a 45 degree slope, with somewhere to home a rescue donkey (seriously - when I left my job in Sydney everyone pooled together and gave me cash... for a donkey.  Along with a stuffed donkey. And a lazy susan cheese platter set - go figure!  I still have the cash rolled up in the bottom of a soapstone vase.  One day I'll have a donkey!!)  Of course we'd also have a Lear jet so I could go anywhere in the world at a moment's notice.  I'd like that.

3. How did you meet your best friend?
 
I was really lonely when we moved down here at first, so I though I'd join a club or something.  I saw an article in our local rag about a very talented girl who made porcelain dolls and was President of the Hobart Doll Club.  I had been making cloth dolls (the weirdo artsy fartsy kind) for a few years, and a good friend in Sydney also made porcelain dolls so it seemed like it might be something I could do that had a bit of a connection to my old life.  The girl in the article became my best friend.  She is like my sister - we are partners in crime and get up to all sorts of mischief and we often scratch our heads and wonder what we did without each other before we met.

4. When did you know T was The One?

The first moment I saw him.  Really.  I was working in London as the meet-and-greet girl for Top Deck Tours, and selling air tickets outside Australia House and he was in the travel industry and he walked into my office and I was .. just ..gone.  I still am (and I have now officially been married longer than I was single!)  My heart still beats faster whenever I even think of him.

5. If you were on death row, what would you order for your last meal?

Hot and crispy KFC because I secretly love it and publicly bag it big time and rarely ever eat it.  Who cares about fat grams if you're gonna die?  Oh, and Lindt balls - the milk, dark and white chocolate mixed box - but that really goes without saying, doesn't it?

Cool - its a nice way to get to know people, hey? :)

Okay ...

1. What's the naughtiest thing you ever did when you were, say, ten?

2. If your life was made into a movie who would be in it, and why?

3. What surprises you most about the place you were born?

4. What gives you the most satisfaction?

5. What do you think is the most interesting thing you've ever done?

1. A horse blanket? Do you ride horses?!?
2. Donkey, eh? In a Jasper-the-pig kind of way?
3. D'awwww. :)
4. D'AWWWWWWWW! :D
5. Mmmmm fried chicken. And yes, chocolate goes without saying. I like the dark chocolate Lindts the best -- I am sorry to admit that milk chocolate and white chocolate are beneath my contempt. Give me dark or give me death!!

Now, hit me, Meegs!!

1. No - it was for the dogs (while the J dog was sick). I'm scared of horses. :(
2. Yeppo. :) Actually, Jasper is a pretty good name for a donkey ...
3. IKR?? We've sort of led these weird parallel lives before we even met, too - it's really quite bizarre!
4. Heee - sickening, isn't it! :)
5. You don't like white chocolate???? Ohhh, bb -- can we still be friends??? ;P (A=YES!)

Okay, your turn, my little poppet:

1. Name something you miss about being a kid.
2. If you could have three wishes granted, what would they be?
3. If you could go on a road trip with any person (dead or alive), who would you choose and where would you go?
4. What is your most treasured possession?
5. What story does your family always tell about you?

re #4, not sickening. It's wonderful to hear about an honest-to-goodness romance.

And re #5, white chocolate is, for me, a literal and figurative pale imitation. I like the bitterness of dark chocolate, and white is just to sweet and buttery for me. Love me anyway??

Off to answer your q's!
