Tag I'm It.....

Tuesday, August 17, 2009....


I have to admit, when Modern Mom tagged me for this meme, I thought why not. My last meme seemed to provide a better insight into me, why not shed some more light.

The rules were simple enough, erase her answers and fill in my own. Here it goes!

1. Who is the hottest Movie Star? I love Jon Hamm, but I wonder if it's because of the character he plays. Nah...he's hot. I can list many other hot movie stars, but will also admit to a long crush on Sam Waterson. Yup. Sam Waterson.

2. Apart from your house and car, what is the most expensive item you have ever bought? Ever? Hmmm.....I'll go back 12 months and say my wedding gown. It was painfully expensive for a dress that was very simple.

3. What is you most treasured memory? Wow. I imagine this question is like asking a parent with multiple children, which is your favorite child...I'm going to take the road Modern Mom did and do multiple memories - a) childhood: spending my summers sailing with gf and going with my dad to early 4 am hockey practices to watch him coach, b)young adulthood: living in Boston, buying a house, getting married to husband #1, c)35+: divorcing husband #1, having my sister and her friends waiting for me at the finish line of my marathon in Dublin, hiking the Grand Canyon on my 40th birthday with strangers who became my friends for 7 days, kayaking across LI Sound (13.1 miles) to raise $$ for local charities, spending one amazing night in NYC with close friends to celebrate my 40th bday (Le Bernardin is one amazing restaurant) and learning that I had cancer.

4. What was the best gift you ever received as a child? I can't remember. I can remember the worst. My mother surprised in the 3rd grade with a fancy dress and I cried. I hate surprises and my mother never surprised me again. Only surprise to this day I've enjoyed is my sister showing up with her friends in Dublin to support me when I did my marathon for Leukemia.

5. What is the biggest mistake you have ever made? LOL. Isn't every mistake really a hidden opportunity?

6. 4 words to describe yourself? Really? I hate these questions because I see myself so differently than how people would describe me.

7. What was your highlight or low light of 2008? Highlight - marrying my husband, Bill.

8. Favorite Film? I answered this in my last meme as follows: I don't have just one, but here are some that come to mind: Clockwork Orange, When Harry Met Sally, The Jerk, Rebecca, Shawshank Redemption, Dodgeball. I could on, but these are the ones that came to mind first.

9. Tell me one thing I don’t know about you. I have a bizarre need to ensure that all ice cube trays are full (bet you didn't see that one coming).

10. If you were a comic book/strip or cartoon character, who would you be? Wonder Woman - who wouldn't want that body, brains, power and INVISIBLE PLANE.

The five bloggers I am tagging with this Meme are:

Helen McGinn said...

*LOL* Wonder Woman; I can just see you in the pants, standing there with your hands on your hips...but her super power was rubbish! A magic whip? Please. I have a better super power than that! ;O)
Anyway, moving on....*L*
This is my first meme! I'll post it tomorrow, thatnk you for thinking of me. x

Heckety said...

You are NOT going to believe this but I do the same to the ice-cube trays and go ballistic when I find them half empty! That is so funny!

ModernMom said...

Okay,
I have to google your hottest star? Don't know what that says about me? lol
Your memories in a word. Amazing!
I need to start looking at mistakes as hidden opportunities.
AND seriously? The ice cube tray thing. Love that. Laughed out loud!

inkOBSESSIONdesigns said...

Stephanie said...

I love what you think about mistakes... that they are just hidden opportunities.

girl, inspired said...

your answers are great by the way!!

DB said...

I love that I got to share in some of your treasured memories. Never knew about the ice cube tray. That is funny. You should have mentioned how you have to eat one food on your plate at a time.

TudorCity Girl said...

Aww...What a wonderful highlight. :)
Thanks for the comments! Not sure how I will survive the Cleanse diet...Leave it to me to start it in a heat wave.
I'm close by to the Starbucks at Stew's as well. Are you comfortable giving your e-mail?
When I had given mine out I had a crazy stalker emailing me through my blog so now I don't have it up anymore. I could post it here though...and just don't post it?!
Too many crazies on-line.. I am hoping this one is gone but he/she keeps popping up from time to time.
Hope you're doing well. Interesting post!

Apart from your house and car, what is the most expensive item you have ever bought?

Does my sanity count as an answer? Because my divorce was more expensive than my house and sanity was the most tangible result.

THE ACTORS DIET said...

don draper is pretty darn dreamy....

Dan said...

I can honestly say I know more about Wonder Woman than Jon Hamm. Probably more comics and less television in my recreation.

P.S. It remained nice and cool today - the heat isn't due back til the weekend. No jinx yet.

Living and Loving In L.A. said...

So...
I did it!
Now you'll have to go check it out! Thanks for tagging me, I had fun writing it.
I'm off on vacation now...
XO!
