A meme thingy from
Here's what you do:
# Leave me a comment saying anything random, like your favorite lyric to your current favorite song. Or your favorite kind of sandwich. Something random. Whatever you like.
# I respond by asking you five personal questions so I can get to know you better.
# Update your LJ with the answers to the questions.
# Include this explanation and offer to ask someone else in the post.
# When others comment asking to be asked, you will ask them five questions.
Here’s a boring answer but the truth. I’d go see a financial planner and secure my family’s financial future. I’d then do the normal things – new house, holiday etc. In my dreams, I’d retire and buy a place in Adelaide’s McLaren Vale and grow banksias and breed whippets.
- If a billionare offered you a million dollars/AUD no strings attached, what would you do with the money?
- Do you believe in soul mates, and why?
Yes, I believe in soul mates. I know it sounds corny but when I met Mr Pook, I just knew he was my soul mate - my Imzadi. It’s beyond love – it’s a deep connection. I can’t really explain it. He completes me. He understands me. I can’t imagine a day without him. Sounds awfully like ST. LOL. Does this make sense?
- What's the most embarassing thing that you've done?
After I graduated from University, my friends and I got drunk in the Uni bar afterwards. We were still in our academic regalia [gowns, sashes, etc] when we proceeded to go down the main shopping mall in Adelaide singing and dancing at the top of voices [imagine like the end of WWII – singing dancing and kissing strange police officers and men etc]. Unfortunately, my very English and proper grandparents who had come to watch me graduate had still been shopping in town afterwards, saw me, contacted my mum and expressed their displeasure at my behaviour. Ooops. There have been so many it was hard to select the one. But my mum and my grandma never let me forget this one.
- If you could travel to any place in the world where would it be, and why?
Central and South America, places like the Yucatan area or Machu Picchu. To see the pyramids and other buildings. It is fascinating to me that supposedly primitive peoples by European standards could build such structures with only simple tools. They had science, calendars and cities as well. What happened to some of them is a mystery.
- If you could meet any person in the world (dead or alive) who would it be and why?
Leonardo da Vinci. Brilliant artist, scientist, inventor, thinker and left-hander. What would he be able to do today if he had access to today’s technology? The mind boggles. Just to listen to the genius of the man. To ask him how he came up with his ideas - to get inside his mind. I’d be in awe.
Great questions ...
