I saw this meme at silver_trails and couldn't resist doing it too.

1. What was the last thing you put in your mouth? Unfortunately a chocolate ice cream sundae from Dairy Queen.
2. Where was your profile picture taken? I assume it's the Facebook profile picture you mean. It was taken on a hike somewhere, probably Heydenshore in Whitby.
3. Worst pain you've ever experienced? Root canal on a lower right tooth some 25 years ago. I still shudder from memories of the pain.
4. Who was the last person to make you laugh? My husband, Dolorous Edd.
5. How late did you stay up last night? 11 pm or thereabouts.
6. If you could move somewhere else, where would it be? Portugal. I can't choose between Lisbon or Lagos. One is the big city, the other is near the ocean. I can't decide.
7. Ever been kissed under fireworks? Not that I remember. Maybe.
8. Which of your Facebook friends lives closest to you? A woman I used to work with, Tanya.
9. How do you feel about turkey burgers? I like them but not as much as hamburgers.
10. When was the last time you cried? Last Sunday when I found out that a friend's sister passed away unexpectedly in her sleep. She was only in her late 40's! Far too young!
11. Who took your profile photo? My husband, Dolorous Edd.
12. Who was the last person you took a picture with? I think my son Jamie but I'm not entirely sure.
13. What's your favorite season? Autumn.
14. If you could have any career. Either a teacher or a doctor, or maybe both.
15. Do you think relationships are ever worth it? I suppose so, if you mean romantic relationships. Other relationships, yes, of course.
16. If you could talk to ANYONE right now who would it be? My mother and father, who are dead.
17. Are you a good influence? Hope so. ;)
18. Does pineapple belong on pizza? Oh yes! I love it!
19. You have the remote, what channel are you watching? TSN. The US Open is on. It's my favourite tennis tournament of the season! I've been watching it since the 1970's!
20. Who do you think will fill this out? No clue…

I saw this meme at Zimena's journal.


Are you named after someone? the "Jennifer" part of my name is unique in my family, but my middle name was both my mother's and maternal grandmother's. (Alice.)

When was the last time you cried? I don't even remember.

Do you like your handwriting? If I take the time to write neatly, then maybe I like it a little bit. I rarely write like that, though, because it's just too time-consuming.

What is your favorite lunch meat? Probably chicken? Or sausage? It's not like I eat meat for lunch all that much, though.

Do you have kids? Yes. Two. One girl, one boy.

If you were another person, would you be friends with you? I hope so.

Do you use sarcasm? Sometimes.

Do you still have your tonsils? Nope, had them removed when I was 2.

Would you bungee jump? Not by choice but I would if it was to save my life or someone else's.

What is your favorite kind of cereal? I eat cereal every day for breakfast, but never the sugary kind. Puffed rice or granola are my top picks for cold, and oatmeal is my favourite hot cereal.

Do you untie your shoes when you take them off? Nope. I find the way to tie them so that they stay nicely on my foot, yet also come off easily.

Do you think you’re a strong person? I've been told various times that I am, but I don't think so myself.

What is your favorite ice cream? Chocolate or pistachio, as well as any other brown-coloured ice cream, i.e. butterscotch, maple walnut, pralines & cream, chocolate chip cookie dough, etc.

What is the first thing you notice about people? Their hair. Then their faces.

What color pants and shoes are you wearing now? Black capri pants and red sandals.

What are you listening to right now? Wimbledon tennis. Sascha Zverev (whom I dislike intensely) just defeated Offner, another Austrian player.

If you were a crayon, what color would you be? This choice would probably change every day. I LOVE crayons and the names of all the colours. Today I feel yellow ochre would be my favourite.

Favorite smell? Fresh strawberries. Nothing is more evocative of summer.

Who was the last person you spoke to on the phone? My son Jamie.

Favorite sport to watch? Ah. I am a huge sports fan, so it depends what's on and when. I'd have to say football (soccer) is my favourite to watch but I do enjoy many others. Right now it's Wimbledon tennis.

Hair colour? My natural colour used to be light, mousy brown but is now white and grey. When I dyed it it was blonde and I still have a bit of that but have let it go for a few months.

Eye colour? Dark brown.

Do you wear contacts? I used to when I was in my late teens or early 20s. Nowadays I wear glasses. I guess I got tired of fumbling with the contacts every day.

Scary movies or comedy? Scary!!!

Last movie you watched? It was a silly horror movie called "The Windmill" which wasn't actually as bad as some I've seen lately.

What colour shirt are you wearing? Reddish-brown tie-dye.

Summer or winter? I have to say summer even though I hate the heat. But winters are so gloomy. My favourite seasons are actually autumn, then spring.

Hugs or kisses? Both.

What book are you currently reading? Various, but I'm lazy & not making much progress with anything. In front of me are Unfinished Tales by JRR Tolkien, The Perils of the Night by James Runcie (a Sidney Chambers mystery), Northern Soul (a fan's story of Wigan Athletic), American Gods (I feel I'm never going to finish this) and others I haven't opened in quite awhile on my Kindle.

What is on your mouse pad? A map of Westeros from Game of Thrones.

What is the last TV program you watched? "Bordertown", a Finnish crime noir that takes place on the border Finland shares with Russia. The primary character is a forensic psychologist, or profiler. It's very good. I believe it was called "Sorjonen" in Finland, which is the name of the profiler.

What is the best sound? The singing of the birds outside my window in the morning. Also just before the sun goes down at night. I love the sound of mourning doves the best.

Rolling Stones or The Beatles? The Beatles, although I like both groups.

What is the furthest you have ever traveled? Berlin, Germany.

Do you have a special talent? I don't know. I used to be told I was talented at various things in school but at the moment I can't believe I'm talented than anyone else at anything, really.

Where were you born? Vancouver, B.C. in Canada.

Fascinating! I saw this at [ profile] lindahoyland. No wonder! Tom is my favourite character for a reason.

You Are Tom

You are very passionate, and you care deeply about the world. You can't stand to see injustices.
You will stand up for what is right, even if it will get you in trouble. You have to speak up sometimes.

While you have the heart of a fiery revolutionary, you know there there is a time and a place for such behavior.
You try to work within the system sometimes if it's effective. And while you always fight for what's right, your friends and family matter dearly to you too.

A friend and I were discussing writing and the use of beautiful words. Not in the sense of what they mean but how they sound, how they roll off the tongue and perhaps invoke some feeling that goes beyond their meaning. We were talking about the English language specifically. She mentioned a quote from JRR Tolkien in which he had stated that the word 'cellar door' (which is actually two words) was the most beautiful word in the English language. My first reaction was "Huh?"

jenni_blog: (BILBAO-CAFE BAR)
This was taken from [ profile] arancione.

Name? Jennifer or Jenni for short.
What is your idea of perfect happiness? Being able to do what I want whenever I want.
What is your greatest fear? Not being able to be alone.
Which historical figure do you most identify with? When I was a child of about ten I read a story about Emmeline Pankhurst, who was a pioneer who worked to get women the vote. Her slogan was 'Deeds not words.' I've always admired her and always wanted to be like her. I always try to speak my mind.

Hello to everyone. I hope you are all enjoying your summer so far. I haven't been around too much lately. I have been reading but not writing, working but not resting much, and just plain dealing with a lot of stuff. I find the end of June/beginning of July is a very busy time of year.

The good: Football: Spain won the Euro, although Germany lost in the semi-final. River Plate in Argentina has made it back from the'B' league to the 'A' this season. America de Cali won their first year in the 'B' but have to put in another year and win the league again in order to get back to the 'A'. And Atletico Madrid won the Europa League.

Personal: I finally talked to Olivia via Skype since she left for the West over two months ago. Skype is totally awesome. She was able to show me her apartment, and I got to talk to Joseph and see him as well. He will be 2 years old this month. And as for Sean, well, he had the best report card of his life! All great marks and the added delight of finding out that he is somewhat of a math whiz! Hooray!

The bad: My sister had a hip replacement operation that she needed, but during the process the surgeon managed to fracture the femur in her leg, thus causing major problems during the surgery. The poor thing has had a bad time of it, but is now on the way to recovery. The surgery was June 16th and she's only just now feeling a bit better. The hip replacement itself was successful, but having to deal with the added recovery from the leg fracture has added to her recuperation time. However, as a school teacher, she has the summer off in which to heal properly.

And I had a little bit of time in which to complete a meme I've been dying to do ever since I saw it on [ profile] bonorattle's LJ.

I got this Meme from [ profile] bonorattle:

A. Available: No. LOL. This May will be our 38th anniversary, if we can last that long. (And yes, I was married when I was 11. There is no way I am admitting I'm past 49. Not till I'm 100 and then I'll be proud of that.)

More Here... )
jenni_blog: (GOLDFISH BOWL)
Somebody gave me this meme to do a long time ago and I apologize for not remembering who it was. I've searched but I can't find it anywhere. But I had made the entry and want to post it now. I'm trying to clean up some of my old "jobs".

Anyway, I was given the colour yellow. I was to list ten of my favourite 'yellow' things. If you'd like to do this meme too, you can leave a comment for me and I'll give you a colour.

So my ten favourite yellow things start with canaries. The rest are below the cut.


Here is Day Two of the 30-day TV meme, which I forgot to post yesterday.

2. A TV show you wish more people were watching:

That would be Flash Forward.

Flash Forward boasts a hugely recognizable cast. Joseph Fiennes, John Cho, Dominic Monaghan, Jack Davenport, Sonya Walger are just some of the actors starring in it.

Unfortunately, Flash Forward has been cancelled for next season, although fans are trying to save it.

Below the cut is a cast photo and a link to an article on what the fans are going to do to try to save the show, and within that article are links to watching episodes online and more stuff. There is also a link to the Wiki info about the show.

I was inspired to do this lovely meme by [ profile] bonorattle.

Even though I think these 30-day things are killers, I had a good look over this one and it really didn't seem too bad. So here goes.
I think I should have started this on June 1st, so I'll try to catch up over the weekend on the posting.

Day 01 - A show that should have never been cancelled - Freaks and Geeks

Again, it's from [ profile] crazy_girl_86.

Has someone ever told you they would be with you forever?
I can't remember that far back. It sounds like something a young guy would say, before he knows much about life. They used to say those things in order to get into my pants. LOL.

Do you sleep with your closet doors open or closed?
Sometimes open, though I'd prefer them all to be closed. It's more an esthetic thing than a 'fear' thing.

What did you do last night?
Ate a special late dinner of fruit...a pear, some orange segments and some cut-up strawberries. Then I was bad and had part of a HUGE chocolate Easter rabbit that was left over from Sean's Easter haul that he didn't want anymore. I washed it down with herbal tea and some digestive enzymes so it would flush out this morning.

Best friend?
Who would that be? That's a tough one. When I was young, all my best friends died. It was horrible. First there was Marilyn. She died of breast cancer in her 20s because of her work. After that I made friends with Moon Lin and she was killed on her way to work one morning. Then Elaine...she died from a heart attack. Then aneurysm. The last best friend I lost was Janet. Another heart attack. That one was the most devastating of all...that one and the first one...Marilyn was far too young and I loved Janet dearly. I refuse to make 'best friends' anymore.

I thought this meme was cute when I read it on [ profile] crazy_girl_86's journal and thought I'd do it too. It's a quick one. :)

Did you ever kiss the last person of the opposite sex you hugged?
Sean? Yes, I kissed him too.

Are you mad at anyone right now?
Yes! A bitch at work.

Would you date someone three years older than you?
Only if the old bugger was hot.

I picked up this fantastically interesting meme from [ profile] bonorattle. Could NOT resist it. Read on...

Are you a morning or night person?
For the past ten years or so I have been a morning person. I find that I no longer need an alarm clock to wake me up because I habitually awake around 6 a.m. no matter what day it is. More recently I've been waking up even earlier...around 4:30 a.m. If I can't go back to sleep I go downstairs, make coffee, have it with a bowl of cereal and an orange and then get on the computer.

What was your favorite childhood television program?
It would have to be the Mickey Mouse Club. My sister and I just loved that show.

If you could have any superpower, what would it be?
Time travel. When I saw the movie "Jumper" I realized that's what I would LOVE to be able to do. Well, maybe that wasn't exactly time travel, but the ability to jump from place to place at will would be awesome.

This awesome meme was found at [ profile] crazy_girl_86.

First Off. Choose Which Of Something You'd Be.

If I were a month, I’d be:'s so pretty here with flowers in their prime and beautiful weather.
If I were a day of the week, I’d be: Saturday...the only day I can get away with doing nothing!
If I were a time of day, I’d be: 9 PM...a time when I can usually relax!
If I were a planet, I’d be: has always fascinated me.

I stole this one off [ profile] bonorattle. It was just as much fun as yesterday's.

1. What curse word do you use the most?
Currently, "fucking hell". Actually, ever since I saw Joe Hart use it about a year ago on TV. (I could read his lips and on him it was cool, so I picked it up. XD)

2. Do you own an iPod?
Yes. It's an iPod...I think the first style Apple came out with. I've had it about two years and there's still only one song on it. LOL.

jenni_blog: (Default)
So I got this really fun meme off [ profile] crazy_girl86 and [ profile] blue_eyed_miss. It was a blast to do and it's under the cut below.

Have you ever been completely alone with a boy in their bedroom?
Hahahahaha. Yes, TOO many!!! XDDD

Have you ever kissed in a basement?
Um, YEAH!!!
