Meme's the word

Brie and her buddy Simone came up with their own meme a few days ago. I only had the imagination to answer a few of the questions here. If you're up to it and/or bored at work on Friday afternoon, you can copy the questions and answer them in your own blog or answer them in my comments section.

Describe your favourite pair of underwear:
Tina makes underwear and other things under the Vancouver clothing label Oona. I especially love her cinchy gitch. I have many pairs because they are very comfortable.

Favourite sandwich toppings?
I can't eat wheat right now, but when I do eat sandwiches, I love roasted veggies (onions, egg plant and red pepper), feta and fresh basil.

Four favourite desserts?
The chocolate and cherry cake I had at Long Beach Lodge will always be my favorite dessert. When I lived in Tofino we went to the hotel lounge to watch the sun set on occasion. They baked your personal-size cake fresh when you ordered and the inside was saucy, sort of like a lava cake but high class. I could eat it four times over.

Your ideal cocktail would include what ingredients?
Right now I'd like Pimm's and Ginger Ale with a slice of cucumber.

Five songs you could listen to over and over and over:
Mahgeetah - My Morning Jacket
Corner Store - Jonathan Richman
One Night in Bangkok - from Chess
Somewhere There's Music - the version from Biloxi Blues
The Coast - Paul Simon

A quote that summarizes your outlook on life:
"Is this a shifter car? I cannot drive a shifter car, alright, so we got a little situation here. I can't drive these kinda cars! What the fuck is goin' on! You think that's funny? Would you like to know, smartass? Would you like to know why I can't drive this kinda car? I'll tell you why, I'm used to luxury cars. Have you ever heard of a luxury car? You know what luxury means? Ever heard of Cadillac, Cadillac Eldorado? That's what I drive. I drive cars that shift themselves." - Billy Brown in Buffalo 66

"I never let the facts get in the way of the truth." - Farley Mowat

Bath or shower?
None of the above.

Are there mouldy things in your fridge?
I clean out my fridge every week but something always manages to go bad on me. So yes.

Percentage of time spent at work actually working:
75% on a good day, when there's actually work to do.

You’ve been given $1000 to spoil yourself with, what would you buy/do?
I'd buy a plane ticket to Ireland (which I hear go for about that much). I want to see the latest addition to the family and also the little one that's expected next year.

Yay, Erin! You did the meme. I can't wait to tell Simone. And Sean will be so impressed by your quote, as Buffalo 66 is one of his favourite movies.
