A Blast From The Past

Saturday, June 27th, 2009

At the risk of tooting my own horn too loudly, I have to admit that sometimes I’m a rather witty writer. (At least, my old posts make me laugh. I can’t vouch for anyone else. :P )

Along that vein, I bring you a goodie that was originally posted February 3, 2007. Some of the answers are really amusing now, lemme tells ya!

Hat-tip to Ann. :)

3. The one person who can drive me nuts is… me.

4. High School… Best left unmentioned.

5. When I’m nervous… I can’t sit still

6. The last time I cried was… what time is it now?

7. If I were to get married right now my maid of honor/best man would be… absent. ‘Cause that’s not happening.

8. My hair is… on my head, silly (oh, and okay, my crowning glory, if I may be so bold…)

9. When I was 5…. it was 1977. I think that was a good year. I dunno. I don’t really remember it.

12. The craziest recent event was…  I haven’t been crazy lately. That I know of. Damn, we need more crazy in our lives…

13. If I were a character on ‘Friends’ I’d be… in New York right now. Cool. That’d be worth putting up with Ross…

14. By this time next year… I’ll be another year older. And if I’m still living at home, I shall commit hara kiri.

15. My current gripe… Boys.

16. I have a hard time understanding… almost anything nowadays, but especially Boys.

17. There’s this girl I know who… one time, at Band Camp…

20. Take my advice… if your gut says no, listen to it.

21. My ideal breakfast… would consist of lots of coffee, toast smothered in butter and jam (just no marmalade), a chunk of cheese, and a big bowl of fruit salad. It would be served to me in bed, and I wouldn’t have had to make ANY of it.

22. If you visited the place I was born… You’d be in my neighborhood right now.

23. I plan to visit someone… wearing nothing but a trenchcoat and stilettos. Someday.

24. If you spend the night at my house… be prepared to share the bed with a rolling and kicking Offspring. Oh, but I’ll make great coffee and fantastic crepes to make up for it.

25. I’d stop my wedding if… what wedding??

26. The world could do without… Arrogance, violence and greed.

30. My favorite blonde is… me. (Oh, all right. The Offspring.)

31. My favorite redhead is… I don’t think I know any redheads. Hm.

32. My middle name is… Sweet Thang. (Seriously. You think I’m joking?)

33. This morning I… really, really, really wanted to sleep some more.

34. Living things I would like to see flying besides birds are… pigs. Now wouldn’t that make some people eat their words?

39. A better name for me would be… Gwyneth Paltrow. Or Cameron Diaz. Or Renee Zellweiger.

40. When I go back to school… I’m going to get out of homework and exams by sleeping with the prof. (Sorry, Ann — I just had to steal this one because it’s the perfect answer. :D )

Memes Away!

“If I could be…”

Try and think of an existing person or character that you feel matches your personality or emulates qualities that you wish you had!
Make sure that you tag a bunch of people so that it can get passed around! Oh, tag the person you got it from or tagged you!!!

1. A superhero: Emma Frost. Never heard of her until I saw this. Yup, I wanna be that. :D

2. One of the friends from Friends: Um…can I say none? They were all pretty dippy. If I had to be a sitcom character, I’d much rather be Susan from Coupling.

3. A cereal box mascot: The Lucky Charms leprechaun — ’cause everybody’d be after me Lucky Charms! (Bwahahahaha!)

4. U.S. President: The first woman prez, whoever she may be.

5. TV news anchor: This is tricky, because I don’t watch much TV, but perhaps Lisa LaFlamme of CTV fame. She’s very attractive and seems quite smart and savvy.

6. Action figure/Doll/Toy: Hm. The only one springing to mind at the moment is Barbie. Being rather petite myself, it might be amusing to be *that* busty. Temporarily, of course.

7. Piece of clothing: I have no idea. I’m tempted to steal another answer I’ve seen and say that I’m some sexy celebrity’s boxer shorts…but I don’t even know whose boxers I’d be. (Donna, you don’t even have to answer. I know whose you’d be. Hehe.) I suppose I might have to be a black velvet corset. Ooo…!

8. Cartoon character: Betty Cooper from the Archie comics.

9. A kitchen item: Is there even a sexy kitchen implement? The only one coming to mind is a wooden spoon…for obvious reasons. *ggg*

10. Famous actor/actress: Helen Hunt. I’ve always loved her.

11. An animal: Some type of cat, I think. Panther, maybe. Something sleek and mysterious.

12. From another country: Hm. Maybe England. Or Australia. Or someplace sultry in South America. Perhaps something completely different from my own ethnic makeup.

13. A late-night talk show host: No idea. I don’t watch much TV, remember??

14. A fast food joint: McDonalds. Yes, I know. I can’t help my Big Mac cravings.

15. With someone right now: B.E., of course. :)

Turkey Thirteen

Thursday, October 9th, 2008

In honour of Canadian Thanksgiving this weekend, I thought I’d pre-emptively give thanks in a Thursday Thirteen.

So without further ado, Thirteen things I am thankful for:

  1. The Offspring, even though some days I’d like to sell her on eBay
  2. Boy Einstein :)
  3. Food in the fridge, electricity in the outlets, and heat coming from the furnace
  4. Good friends (that means you, Rella, and Donna, and Tammy, and LF, and Auntie ‘Em, and John, and Robbie, and Eric, and the rest of you whom I can’t list because I’d run out of room…)
  5. The family — both immediate and extended
  6. My heated mattress pad
  7. Legitimate pharmaceuticals
  8. My own (relative, at the moment) good health, and the good health of my friends and family
  9. Having a few bucks in my wallet
  10. Good books
  11. My kick-ass Dodge Calibre
  12. Sad things, once in a while — because if we don’t have sad things to cope with, how can we truly appreciate the wonderful things?
  13. Freedom — both this country’s and my own personal. Because those things should never, ever be taken for granted.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone. :)

Meme, The Impossible Meme!

Wednesday, May 14th, 2008

No, it’s not impossible. However, this is what happens when Kris’ brain is apparently malfunctioning slightly. (Just slightly. No comments from the Peanut Gallery.)

Again, it’s all about ME, but from YOUR point of view!

Put your answers in comments, please! (And if you want me to answer this for you, just say the word!) :) (I’ve also edited some questions for various reasons.)

  1. Where did we meet?
  2. Do I smoke?
  3. The colour of my eyes?
  4. Do I have any siblings?
  5. What’s one of my favourite things to do?
  6. What’s my favourite type of music?
  7. Am I shy or outgoing?
  8. Am I a rebel, or do I follow the rules?
  9. Any special talents?
  10. How many children do I have?
  11. If you and I were stranded on a deserted island, what’s one thing I’d bring along?

All righty! Have fun, and let’s see what sorts of guesses you can come up with!

‘Meme’ Me Up, Scotty

Monday, April 28th, 2008

(I know, I know. Horrid. But that’s what you get when Kris has a headache. :P )

So it’s Memememe time in Krisworld once again (see note above). This is another “Get to know you” type thing, so please play along! I’ve gone with a Naughty theme for these questions (are you surprised??). Post your answers in comments!

  1. If you were to become a prostitute, how much money would you expect to charge per hour?
  2. Of all the people you know, who would be the easiest to seduce?
  3. If you could pair up any two single people you know, who would you put together?
  4. If you had to have one, whose autograph would you have tattooed on your body?

My answers below the cut…
