Yes - I Got Tagged

I got tagged by mabel_marsters for the latest meme that is going around ...

The Fourteen Questions Meme of Doom!

If you've been tagged, you must write your answers in your own lj and replace any question that you dislike with a new question. Tag 10 people. Don't tag who tagged you.  I shall be tagging a few - but most of my list are friends with each other - so if I haven't tagged you, it's probably that I have seen your name elsewhere - don't be upset with me!

And, now to the Q&A -

1} What's your favourite pastime?

Reading Spuffy!  I have also been geting into icon making for the fandoms (as you all know as I spam your lists!), and do enjoy writing ... well when procrastination doesn't win!
Away from fandom - I love walking, photography ... and combining the two with sight-seeing..

2} What are some of your favourite current or old series?

Past shows -
Star Trek, Voyager
Blakes 7

Present shows -
Vampire Diaries

3} What's the latest movie you watched?

In date of being filmed - Dragonball
In watching - The Music Man on Friday night.

Pets Rule!

I have copied this from slaymesoftly as, if you haven't read it, you must!  She received it in an email, and it is just so great to read, I couldn't resist passing it on -


The following was found posted very low on a refrigerator door.

Dear Dogs and Cats:

The dishes with the paw prints are yours and contain your food.   The other dishes are mine and contain my food.. Placing a paw print in the middle of my plate and food does not stake a claim for it becoming your food and dish, nor do I find that aesthetically pleasing in the slightest.

The stairway was not designed by NASCAR and is not a racetrack. Racing me to the bottom is not the object. Tripping me doesn't help because I fall faster than you can run.

I cannot buy anything bigger than a king sized bed. I am very sorry about this. Do not think I will continue sleeping on the couch to ensure your comfort, however. Dogs and cats can actually curl up in a ball when they sleep. It is not necessary to sleep perpendicular to each other, stretched out to the fullest extent possible. I also know that sticking tails straight out and having tongues hanging out on the other end to maximize space is nothing but sarcasm..

For the last time, there is no secret exit from the bathroom! If, by some miracle, I beat you there and manage to get the door shut, it is not necessary to claw, whine, meow, try to turn the knob or get your paw under the edge in an attempt to open the door. I must exit through the same door I entered.   Also, I have been using the bathroom for years - canine/feline attendance is not required.

The proper order for kissing is: Kiss me first, then go smell the other dog or cat's butt. I cannot stress this enough.

Finally, in fairness, dear pets, I have posted the following message on the front door:


(1) They live here. You don't.
(2) If you don't want their hair on your clothes, stay off the furniture. That's why they call it 'fur'-niture.
(3) I like my pets a lot better than I like most people.
(4) To you, they are animals. To me, they are adopted sons/daughters who are short, hairy, walk on all fours and don't speak clearly.
Remember, dogs and cats are better than kids because they:

(1) eat less,
(2) don't ask for money all the time,
(3) are easier to train,
(4) normally come when called,
(5) never ask to drive the car,
(6) don't smoke or drink,
(7) don't want to wear your clothes,
(8) don't have to buy the latest fashions,
(9) don't need a gazillion dollars for college and
(10) if they get pregnant, you can sell their children

Colour Meme

I am meant to be doing the accounts for orchestra - we don't have arehearsal tonight, but we have AGM next week, and as the hon treasurer, I have to get everything done for them. So, what am I doing? Meme-ing!!

The Colour Meme:

Ask in the comments, and I'll give you a colour that I think represents you, and then you list ten things you like in that colour!

I asked enigmaticblues and she gave me purple, as she said my LJ page had the colour ... I actually had to look to see what she meant. I's funny how you see something all the time, and in the end you forget what it looks like!
