Community Network Meme: July 2012

Another blog event from the lovely Mr. Baker. ๐Ÿ™‚

1. When you were a child what was the hardest or scariest thing in the world (i.e. movie, book, chore, etc.) to you that as an adult is neither hard nor scary?

Vegetables! ๐Ÿ˜† Now I’m not saying I’m in love with ย vegetables as an adult (it’s still a love-hate relationship) but I’m trying to eat them now since they are good for the body.

2. If you were offered the chance to be a cooking star on a Food Network show, which of these three would you choose for a mentor: Bobby Flay, Giada de Laurentis or Alton Brown?

Giada de Laurentis for the Italian pastries! ๐Ÿ˜€ I’m actually on the way to making Zeppole or Italian doughnuts.

3. What is your favorite theme offered by your blogging platform that you are not using and what theme do you absolutely hate? Provide links to both along with your explanation.

The Journalist v1.9 – It’s a clean, minimal theme that I used for years. I don’t hate any particular theme but I deviate from using ones with dark shades as they strain the eyes. Interestingly, my first ever theme is black – Chaotic Soul. (Also I can’t find a link to the theme, sorry.)

4. Who is someone from your past that you are sorry you lost track of?

TBH, I don’t get to keep track of everyone I truly wish to keep track of. But for this, I must say it has got to be my best friends from elementary school, Joy and Chona.

5. What would you take to a deserted island?

A jet plane so I can leave when I want to, plus a pilot. ๐Ÿ˜‰

6. If you could get into the mindย  of anyone (living or dead) and read all their thoughts, whose mind would you choose to raid?

Jesus, but if he is not available, My Man would do. He’d be so dead…

7. What are the entire contents of the top drawer of the table directly next to your side of the bed?

My Blackberry, a bottle of water, and a flash light.

8. What is the one thing you have in your dorm, apartment, or house that you never want your parents to find.

Nothing really. First of all, I don’t have much, plus I’m pretty boring so I don’t have anything explosive or remotely interesting.

9. Your daughter is having a sleepover for her 12th birthday. Around 8:00 pm a thunderstorm knocks out power. How do you entertain twelve pre-teen girls when all the cell-phone batteries have died?

I’d give them each a tiny pill of antihistamine so they all get knocked out to sleep (if it counts :lol:)

10. What aspect/trait about your personality are you most sensitive about (as in, you wouldn’t stand anyone criticizing about this one aspect)?

Since I received the meme questions, I’ve been thinking of an answer for this one but I couldn’t quite put my hand on it. I have a simple philosophy – if it’s true, don’t get mad; if it’s not true, as long as it doesn’t change the truth, it doesn’t matter.

11. Mr. Tom Baker has had two previous virtual nude dinner parties. He is now inviting you, his blogger friends to his home for a real nude dinner party. This is not a virtual dinner party; it is the real thing with all expenses paid and the usual five course dinner prepared by him. Will you or will you not be present at said nude party?

Bring it on!

12. What one piece of movie memorabilia from which movie would you love to own? my answer –

The beard of Albus Dumbledore ๐Ÿ˜† I’m not really big on movies so I can’t think of something I’d really wan. How about Garfield? Can I have him?

13. If literary characters were real and you could interview any one of them, who would it be and what’s the first question you would ask?

Bellatrix Lestrange. I won’t really ask anything, instead I’d scream “You’re totally crazy but I like you a lot!”ย But if I really had to ask anything, I’d just ask Matthew King of The DescendantsWTF were you thinking?

14. If you had to choose a theme song for yourself from only the Classical genre, which song would it be?

This may be a little embarrassing but I don’t know any classical song except Flight of the Bumblebee. It’s a classic, right?

15. What is your most quirky habits.

Oh, what is my not quirky habit? I do things repeatedly in the same order everyday, I eat the same things everyday, I freak out when I see people I haven’t seen in awhile (even My Man), I flap when I’m excited and so on and so forth.

16. When was the last time you took the time to act like a child and what did you do?

I make faces… a lot!

17. If there was ever a past relationship, (friend or otherwise), that you could go back and mend, would you? Who would it be with, and why?

I have a friend before that I don’t speak to now; totally a very awkward story. But if I could mend things and make them back the way they were before everything, then of course I would, who wouldn’t?

18. What would you do if all of your followers left comments daily and would be it be too much for you to handle? Would you hire someone to answer comments for you?

That’s great! I’d answer them all and spend the entire day replying to comments, really.

19. Do you know how far back your ancestry goes on either side of your family tree? How far?

Nope, only until the third generation.

20. If you could compare yourself to anything in the universe, what would you compare yourself to? Why?

  1. LOL your answers.. so funny. Especially the girls sleeping over one. hahha just knock ’em all out XD
    I make faces too~! That was a really good answer!!

  2. Eeeek! I am four days behind. I just answered mine today. I like your answer about the jet and the pilot. Why didn’t I think of that? Haha ๐Ÿ˜€ Also, Laurenti’s recipes are just way awesome. I wish I could learn to do what she does! ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. re no. 17, i remember this friend/classmate i had in 2nd year high school…we were do close. but when we got to the third year, we were not classmates anymore. i sort of made new friends and wished that the friend and i get to spend less time para i can spend more time with my new friends. ayun, wish granted…to the extent we totally drifted away.

    i guess that would be the relationship i would want to go back to. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    anyway, nice knowing more about you again PM!

    • it’s always sad to hear about people drifting away. but it always happens. i think i read somewhere every few years or so people change friends, not exactly friends but people they hang out with. that’s true i guess. this is a nice meme, i enjoyed answering it too.

    • this way i can enjoy the deserted island knowing i can leave whenever i want to. plus i can bring people too if i feel like it!

  4. Vegetables!! I still hate them now. But I’m trying so hard enough vegetables because i know it’s for my own good. I love the airplane and the pilot answer. That’s thinking out of the box, brilliant. And make that a gorgeous pilot!

    • actually, it was tom who made me consciously try to eat more veggies. he is a vegan you see. i like that thought on the gorgeous pilot – maybe one that looks like robert downey jr. :mrgreen:

      • Tom as in The Tom Baker? I didn’t know he’s vegan. Wow! I’ve always been fascinated by people who only eat vegetables. I wonder where they get that sheer willpower to thrive on something as bland as vegetables. Hahaha! I’m a meat-lover through and through but I also eat fish, chicken and seafood. Eating vegetables is another story. I try my very best though because I don’t want to end up having some kind of cancer or anything. And because I know I’d die young for being so carnivorous! Anyway, I was rethinking about the gorgeous pilot and thought maybe you should not bring a gorgeous one or you’ll end up not wanting to get off his plane. Lol

        • the lovely Mr. Baker, yes. i’m pretty much carnivorous too, but i love seafood also. i live near the ocean so… maybe vegans simply cannot eat anything with a head – or a mother – for that matter and i respect them for that. OMG if that is the case with the robert downey jr pilot, then hey miss, i won’t mind at all! :mrgreen: but let’s try to eat veggies alright? we can do it! ๐Ÿ™‚

          • Oh you leave near the ocean? Now I’m jealous! I super love the beach I could live near it all my life. But my husband would not allow me of course. He’s a very metropolitan kind of guy. Are you from the P.I.? Or you’re a Filipina based in the US? Sorry for being nosy. I respect vegans too. Sorry if the comment above sounded like I’m making fun of them. It was not my intention to mock them. I do eat a proportionate amount of vegetables. I wouldn’t really categorize myself as a vegetable hater/non-eater like I know some people are. It’s just that I love to eat meat more. But I guess I should try to adapt a healthier lifestyle if I want to live longer. Now where are those vegetables? Let’s do this!

            • to be honest, i’m not the biggest beach bum in the world but here i am living near the ocean. i’m in PH, you too? no, it didn’t sound like you were making fun of them. but it’s truly interesting how they can be vegans. i’m pretty amazed at them too! but yes, i love my meat like you, apir!

              • Wow! Let’s swap places kung ganun. I am based in the Philippines too! In Paraรฑaque City to be exact. Nice meeting you here Prinsesa. I keep calling you that because I have a friend named Princess and I always call her Prinsesa even if she doesn’t want me to. Hahaha. Apir!

    • you mean so irresistible? yes, cats are really cute when they sleep. our cats sleep on chairs and even when i need the chair i can’t muster the nerve to ruin their sleep. i just sit somewhere else. ๐Ÿ˜†

  5. You’re totally cheating on number 5, but I love the answer anyway {Smile}

    My boyfriend would probably agree with you on the antihistamines for the sleepover!

    I think it would be a lot of fun to have Garfield ๐Ÿ™‚

    • it was really the first thing that came to my mind. i easily get bored and the deserted island might get old easy. i got the antihistamine idea from my friend who actually does it to his nephew. ๐Ÿ˜† garfield is the best. what can be better than a fat, fluffy cat?

  6. I’m glad you got your post completed and posted PM! I missed you taking part earlier but as usual you have great answers. Wasn’t sure if you knew who Giada was but if so I thought you might choose her.

    • i’ve completed the answers some days ago but i forgot to schedule it in my confusion of the time to have in sync with everyone. turned out i got behind everyone! ๐Ÿ˜† i’d really want to cook with jamie oliver or sophie dahl but since they aren’t on the choices, giada fits the spot.
