Friday Meme: Have you ever...?

12 September 2008

The title might imply that I'm doing a meme every Friday. Well, if that's what you think, you are WRONG! It only means that, if I'm doing a meme, I'll be doing it on a Friday. (crickets chirping) No, I'm not being weird. That actually makes sense!

Anyway, do this meme. All of you! I stole it from Zandria. It's ever so swanky.

Have you ever…

1. gone on a blind date?
No, my parents would've killed me, and after I moved out of my house, my boyfriend Roomie would've killed me.

2. skipped school?
Yes, when my band played at the school, and we needed the whole day to set up and take down all the amps, speakers, synths, and my bass. Mind you it was a teacher sanctioned skip, so I'm not sure if it counts.
I skipped a whole lot more in university though.

3. watched someone die?
No.

4. been on the opposite side of your country?
I live in the middle of my country... what's the opposite side of middle?... I've lived in BC, so the opposite of that is the Maritimes... so, in that case, no.

5. swam in the ocean?
Yes, hard to avoid that when you live in Hawai'i. I've also enjoyed time in the ocean while on my honeymoon in Cancun.

6. had your booze taken away by the cops?
No, but I've been shushed at our local Brit pub. OMG, who gets shushed at The Toad?!? Apparently, me... and one of my crazy girlfriends... just how loud were we, Su Li?

7. lettered in high school sport?
Oh, hell, no. I was one of the nerds. A Filipina nerd in a New Wave band. Such a dork.

8. played cops and robbers?
No, but we played a lot of Charlie's Angels vs. bad guys, as well as Bionic Woman vs. bad guys. I always played Sabrina and the bad guys, respectively.

9. sung karaoke?
I'm a Filipina. You are Filipina = You have a karaoke machine. It's a pre-req. And yes, I've sung with my friends at karaoke bars 'round town. Ah, to be young and very drunk.

10. paid for a meal with coins only?
Yes, it's easy in Canada when your $1 and $2 comes in coins.

11. made prank phone calls?
I may have... If I did, I would've been young and very drunk.

12. laughed until some sort of beverage came out of your nose?
Yes, thanks to my evil Roomie. He times his jokes for peak nasal spray-age.

13. written a letter to Santa Claus?
No, unless you count that email I sent him from my son last year. St. Nick's keeping up with the times, my friend.

14. watched the sunrise with someone you care about?
Yes, it was while I was living in Hawai'i with Roomie, or was it the Grand Canyon with Roomie. Wow, I get around with Roomie guy.

15. been kissed under the mistletoe?
Yes, it was wet and dirty, and we were told to stop right away.

16. ever been arrested?
No, but that's only because the cops haven't heard me sing karaoke yet.

17. gone ice skating?
Yes, I think it's a pre-req for all Canadians. You Canadian = You Skate.

18. been skinny dipping outdoors?
Not yet... I think... if I have, I would've been young and really drunk.

19. been on TV?
Yes... dancing hula on public access (age 11), A-Channel interview for Cinebabies, and ShawTV interview for Cinebabies. That would've been funny if I was young and drunk... but not 11yo young.

Great responses! Thanks for participating. :)

To be shushed at the Toad...! Yes, we must have been LOUD. Not that I remember much. I still maintain it was because Paul G. introduced me to 'snake bite'. To this day, I can't (and no one should, really) mix beer and apple cider. In the same glass.

@Zandria -
It was a pleasure. Such fun!

@Su -
That Paul G's such a bad influence :) Nothing ever good came out of drinking snake bite.

---> BLISSFUL!!!!!!

13. written a letter to Santa Claus?

---> EMAIL!? That's really cool. Santa's hi-tech. I hope he still needs his elves!

I thought it was cool too! We got the addie through Canada Post (our postal system), and Santa can email or snail mail back his reply depending on your request.
But I'm sure the elves are still needed to give the toys that extra loving touch. :)
