Last one in's a rotten egg

Doing my first ever meme. Hooray for me.

48 things you could not care less about

  1. First name? Caroline. Not to be confused with Carolyn. But I think all Carolyns and Carolines just answer to both. This is because apparently if you know a Carolyn before you know a Caroline you can only pronounce me as Carolyn. And vice versa.
  2. Were you named after anyone? No. But I like to claim Neil Diamond’s classic song as being for me.
  3. When did you last cry? I get teary-eyed at the drop of a hat. I blame parenthood. Don’t usually let it go as far as a big sooky howl though. Unless I’m watching Steel Magnolias.
  4. Do you like your handwriting? Yes. I’m very neat. And a touch arty.
  5. What is your favourite lunchmeat? Ham from a proper Christmas ham. With honeycup mustard.
  6. If you were another person, would you be friends with you? Yes. But I would find me annoying.
  7. Do you have a journal? Only this. And I don’t get that personal here. Well. Apart from telling people about my UTIs.
  8. Do you still have your tonsils? Yes
  9. Would you bungee jump? No
  10. What is your favourite cereal? I really like Crunchy Nut Cornflakes but I don’t buy it for myself. I try to do the good, healthy breakfast with lots of fibre and vitamins and acidophilus. Because I'm good like that.
  11. Do you untie your shoes when you take them off? Never
  12. Do you think you are strong? Bits of me are. I have very weak thumbs though.
  13. What is your favourite icecream flavour? I used to work at a gourmet Melbourne Ice-Creamery and I liked their: Lemon Cheesecake. Cinnamon. Ginger. Raspberry Sorbet. But to be honest I really don’t eat much icecream any more. My mother and sister are the icecream addicts in my family.
  14. Shoe size? Virtually a 9 since the second baby.
  15. Red or Pink? All the colours of the rainbow are my friends but I’m a natural red-head so neither of these two figure highly in my wardrobe. More of a purple girl.
  16. What is your least favourite thing about yourself? My teeth
  17. Who do you miss the most? My cat
  18. Do you want everyone to send this back to you? If they wanna..
  19. What colour pants, shirt and shoes are you wearing? It’s all black & purple.
  20. Last thing you ate? A chocolate cream wafer biscuit. Allright, about 6 of them actually.
  21. What are you listening to right now? Melbourne Cup award ceremony. The sound of my nephew playing. All the other kids asleep.
  22. If you were a crayon, what colour would you be? Purple
  23. Favourite smell? Gardenia. Frangipani. Daphne. Early Cheer Jonquils. Can’t narrow it down any more than that.
  24. Who was the last person you talked to on the phone? My sister (she’s at the Cup, I was checking whether my nephew would eat vegemite)
  25. The first thing you notice about people you are attracted to? Their conversation.
  26. Do you like the person you stole this from? Well, I like all the blogspots I’ve read it on.
  27. Favourite Drink? Tea. Dilmah or English Breakfast. NEVER Earl Grey. Made in a bone china pot with proper tea-leaves, served in a bone china mug, (must be white on the inside) 2 sugars in first, then pour the tea, add the low-fat milk last. Just the way Fixit makes it.
  28. Favourite sport? I really loved playing softball in my youth. I was the catcher and batted at number one because I could hit anything. I wouldn’t watch it though. I like watching dancing.
  29. Eye colour? Green
  30. Hat size? 56cm. Same as my 5-year-old son’s.
  31. Do you wear contacts? No
  32. Favourite food? Cooked by someone else. As long as there are no mushrooms, sausages, olives, anchovies, bananas, custard or an abundance of chilli in the mix.
  33. Scary movies or happy endings? Happy endings
  34. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would that be? I’m happy here in Melbourne
  35. Summer or winter? Winter
  36. Hugs or kisses? Depends. You know how old men like to plant those big sloppy wet ones on you? Go the hug then. But my little boys can give me as many sloppy wet ones as they like.
  37. Favourite dessert? Tiramisu. Lemon Tart. Hot apple pie.
  38. Who is most likely to respond? Read the comment box in a couple of days time
  39. Least likely to respond? See above
  40. What books are you reading? Skeleton Key. The Player and the Rebels. The Ringmaster’s Daughter
  41. What's on your mouse pad? Winnie-the-Pooh (Disney version)
  42. What did you watch last night on television? I worked last night, no TV.
  43. Favourite sounds? Songs that make me want to dance.
  44. Rolling Stones or Beatles? No preference.
  45. The furthest you've been from home? Which is further: New York or London?
  46. What's your special talent? Empathy.
  47. Where were you born? Canberra
  48. Who sent this to you? No-one. I took it upon myself.


  1. nicely done!

    On our floor at work we have a Carol, Carolyn and Caroline sitting next to each other. The Carolyn likes to be called Caro which sounds a lot like Carol. It is a nightmare for pronunciation freaks.

    And the permanently pregnant feet? I so feel your shoe-upgrading pain.

  2. Yay! *clapping hands* LOVE reading meme answers! Now I know you have weak thumbs and great taste in icecream.

  3. i hate anchovies and olives too!! I am also a picky tea drinker - except Earl grey is one of my faves.

  4. Being a fellow red-head I have just discovered that red is a good colour for us. Honest. The deeper reds, maroons and burnt oranges. Try it, you might like them. Just not yellow; never yellow. Too sallow. Those other warmer colours enhance our hair colour. Take a few pictures of yourself in these colour and you'll be surprised. I was. I'll get off my soap box now :-)

  5. I haven't done a meme before either .. I am scard if I start, i'll do 1000's and bore the socks off eveyone .. tempting though, so tempting ... I like reading everyone elses !

    I sometimes eat a container of olives for lunch. I like olives with nearly everything :)

  6. I thought I'd decided to do a zoo post off my own bat. Then I dropped by and realised maybe you had planted a subconscious seed on Sunday!

    (SO with the s-alliteration, I am today)

  7. I like happy endings, too. It was fun learning more things about you! Thanks for sharing. c",)

  8. I thoroughly agree with you on #27.

    [spit] Earl Grey?! [/spit]

  9. Tea {Barry's], Tiramisu and toe tappin' music---yes, yes, yes!


Don't let the cat get your tongue.
