Tag You're It!

This week, a game of tag has ensued throughout the writerly bloggersphere,  Carol Kilgore of the famed Tiki Hut threw a coconut at my blog on Wednesday, and our own Golden Eagle swooped on me yesterday.  I am honoured, and I do love to play.  Game on!  There are questions to be answered:


1.  Do you think you're hot?
Um, like - yah, but no but... Is that a trick question?  As if!  *raises eyebrows, flicks hair, applies lip gloss*  Can I borrow your hairbrush?


2.  Upload a picture or wallpaper you're using at the moment.
Just a minute...  *hastily closes semi-clothed demi-gods*   I need to find a clean one that won't crash your PCs.


3.  When was the last time you ate chicken meat?
Three Sundays ago, BBQ.  Rosemary and garlic chicken thighs... yum!  *licks lips*


4.  The songs you listened to recently.
I've been listening to these gems, from my 'cruise' playlist...
Desert Rose - Sting
Ride wit' Me - Nelly
F***ken Perfect - Pink
A little less conversation - Elvis
Come away with me - Norah Jones


5.  What were you thinking as you were doing this?
That I better get this done before someone else tags me!  And, where am I going to find a clean screensaver at this hour of the night...


6.  Do you have nicknames?  What are they?
Yup.  I had a few...Giraffe, Long Tall Sally, Bambi, Lamb...chop? This is embarrassing....there's others but I'll stop now.   *mutters to self* 


7.   Tag eight blogger friends.
Liz Fichera
Shirley Wells
Talli Roland
Melissa
Melissa Marsh
Danette Baltzer
Jen Daiker
Francine Howarth

Who's listed as No.1?  Liz - She's fab!  She hikes in the desert and fights off rattlesnakes...wait, was that true?
Say Something about No.5.  Melissa M - A lover of all things vintage.
How did you know No.3? Talli - She was one of my first followers on twitter and here!
How about No. 4? Melissa E - Wonderful and supportive writing buddy!
Leave a message for No.6.  Danette - "More champagne, darling?"
Leave a lovey-dovey message for No.2.  "It was a dark and stormy night...perfect for conoodling in front of the fire place, when suddenly...."  Did I mention Shirley is a crime/mystery writer? 
Do No.7 and No.8  have any similarities?  Jen & Francine - They're both lovely ladies with a passion for writing.



A/N:  It's been another eventful week, shall I ever catch my tail?  This weekend, there will be a spot of fearless editing, training for a charity walk (ah yes), a birthday party, and hopefully I will get to check out a little of London's Festival of Britain at South Bank!  What's on your diary?  Have a wonderful weekend all!

  10. I saw your comment over at my friend Danette's place and came over. I think I was a follower once but I might have lost you when my Blogger crashed some time ago.

    Anyway, I'm back, and I enjoyed this post. I thought your nicknames were delightful, especially Long Tall Sally. Now I want to know more....!!

    Sounds like a busy but fun-filled weekend. Enjoy! And I hope you're getting a lot of editing done.
