Five Things

Vegas Princess tagged me. Err... a week ago. So here I go, finally. Now, instead of putting down five people to tag, let me know if you try this too:

Question #1: What were you doing 5 years ago?

Ah, 2002.... Well I remember we took our first car trip with both a cat and dog to the good ol' U.S. of A.

And then came home with an 8 week old kitten as well.

I still remember Mr. Serious-Customs-Agent asking us to repeat our Declaration at the border.

"Pardon, me? You bought a WHAT?"

Daughter was terrified her Daddy's teasing threat that they would not allow an American cat into Canada would come true... didn't.

Question #2: List 5 snacks you enjoy:

1. Choclate-covered strawberries
2. Chocolate-covered raisins
3. Chocolate-covered almonds
4. Chocolate-covered cranberries
5. Oh, hell, chocolate-covered anything

Aw, crap. Now I have to go hunt down something chocolate-covered to nosh.... BRB

Sorry. *licks chocolate-covered fingers*

Okay, back to the list.

Question #3: List 5 songs you know all the lyrics to:

1. Any song from "Jesus Christ Superstar". Yup, I can (and have to be honest, on the days I am alone in the house with nothing better to do) sing the entire movie verbatim.

At full volume.

Whilst dancing.

With the curtains drawn, natch.

2. Weird Al's "Ebay". A few weeks ago I heard the original Backstreet "I Want It That Way" and kept singing Al's version instead. Well, no one was with me.

That I knew personally, anyway.

I was shopping, actually...

and just ignored the weird looks those strangers were giving me.

3. "Sargent Pepper" by the Beatles. The entire album (yeah, I said ALBUM...)

So what.

I'm old, okay?

4. Another complete album I have memorized due to massive over-play is "Yellow Brick Road" by Sir Elton. Ah, the 70's..... good times, good times.... (Hah! Good Times!)

You'd have to be a child of the 70's to get that one....

5. I know this list is supposed to be a single song you know by heart... let's see, there are actually so many. I'll choose "Love Today" by Mika. Such a fun song to sing in the car.

By myself.

With the windows rolled up.

And pretending not to sing when other cars pass by.

Question #4: List 5 bad habits:

1. I tend to be sarcastic (No! Really???)

2. I can be a procrastinator (case in point: taking a week to do a simple meme...)

3. I tend to overuse "..." whilst writing...

4. I sing in the car, which is bad because my singing is baaaaaad

5. I eat way too many chocolate-covered things which is one of the major reasons for items in the list below.

Question #5: List 5 things you would never wear again:

1. Hot pants. Yes, I really did own a pair in the 70's. They had a bib with a pocket.

And were Black.

And Velvet. Oooooh....

2. Bikini (no need to explain further, thank you ver, ver much).

3. Track suit. I am not athletic. Never was, come to think of it. I was only kidding myself when I wore that red and white polyester suit with the headband, wrist bands and matching cool Addidas runners back in school.....

I do believe it was the ONLY reason I passed Phys Ed.

4. My "Jane Fonda" spandex aerobics bodysuit, complete with shiny gold tights and knitted leg warmers!

Hah, hah, hah, hah.....I can't BELIEVE I ever wore that!!!!!

Ooooh... the wrist bands made a repeat appearance at this time as well. Nothing says "I am in shape" like WRISTBANDS!!!

5. Oh my, can't I stop now??? Let's see. I'll never wear half the clothes in my closet again.

But I can't bear to get rid of them. Maybe my black and red "Micheal Jackson" one-piece jumpsuit will come back in style one day.

You never know.

Okay, your turn. Let me know if you do this. And if it took YOU a week to finish like I did.

I could practically ditto your answers! Now, you could get rid of half the clothes in your closet? I actually just did that at my garage sale. I had some similar items to those you describe. And do you know what? Nobody bought 'em. Can you believe it? Misguided souls...!

Bonita Rose said...

Lynn said...

mum-on-the-run said...

Loved reading this, so funny!!

Janet said...

Maureen, I tagged myself and answered your 5 questions. Wasn't so hard!

Jill said...

Yeah well...who doesn't know the entire lyrics to Sgt. Pepper?!?! AND sing them in the grocery store? :-) :-) :-) Actually, I always think it's kind of pathetic whenever I want to stay in a grocery store or drug store just a little longer 'cause I like the song that's playing.

Chocolate covered anything - oh yeah!!!!!! Then again, chocolate covered chocolate is quite tasty too! I can't believe you had chocolate while posting & didn't share though...

LOL on the wristbands comment!
Jill (fellow "..." over user)

Jill said...

Oh yeah, & I meant to say I LIKE your idea of letting whoever do the tag. :-) Very good idea!

Maureen said...

Aw, Jill, you're just happy I didn't get you again....

You're off the hook - this time.

I was always amazed at how Jane Fonda balanced herself in that picture. I was sure she was leaning against a hidden pole or something.
