Tag! I'm It...

My friend Jennifer tagged me yesterday. I've never been tagged before... but I always like these kind of things, so here goes!

What are your top 3 favorite foods?

Mexican (anything), chocolate (anything), and pizza, I think... but this is really hard, because I love food in general!

What was the last book you read and would you recommend it?
*The Inimitable Jeeves* by PG Wodehouse is the last book I finished. I would totally recommend it-- it was so funny.

What are your top 3 favorite places?
The beach (preferably a warm one), with my family and friends (especially my bubbee), and Disney World. =D

What was the last lie you told?
Does it count if you didn't know it was a lie at the time? *I'm going home to do some more reading*... but I haven't read any. The last one that I told on purpose? *I'll do the dishes tomorrow.*

What are your favorite 3 sports (to watch or participate in)?
Rugby (national, not club so much), football (European, not American and national, never ever club), and most of the Olympic stuff-- winter and summer.

What was the last movie you watched and would you recommend it?
*10,000 BC*, with Kenny. It was enjoyable.

List 3 things you can see outside of the nearest window.
The drunks smoking outside the bar across the street, traffic on the busy main street, and two trees in the little green space on the corner of the flats across the road.

Where was the last place you went?
To Costa for coffee with Carrie and the boys before hanging out with the boys at the Children's Library while Carrie and Scot went to the cinema, and then for dinner at McD's.

What are your top 3 favorite "good causes" or charities?
Just three? Let's see... Children International (where I sponsor a great kid), Make Poverty History/The One Campaign, and just because it's coming up next week, Idol Gives Back, tee hee.

What was the last thing you did for someone else?
Babysat twice this week at short notice-- once on Monday morning at 9am for Ainsley, and this afternoon for Matthew and Adam.

Name 3 places you have never been that you want to visit.
outer space, New Zealand, and Egypt... although narrowing it down to three is hard!

What was the last thing you threw in the garbage/recycling?
In the garbage, the Charmin wrapper. In the recycling, an empty dishwashing liquid bottle.

Name 3 things on your bedside table.
Alarm clock, books, and Carmex

Describe or name the last piece of art you looked at.
Marischal College, a very fancy baroque granite building here in town.

What are the top 3 things that your job requires you to think about?
How Christian parents should raise kids, why reading is formative and important, and how quickly I can write 100,000 words on those topics.

What was the last musical or theatrical event that you attended?
The BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra Christmas concert, back in December.

What are the first 3 things you would do if you won the lottery?
pay off my debts, pay off my family's debts, and invest as wisely as possible as much as possible

Describe or name the last serious injury or illness you had?
I don't know that it would be called serious, but I was running a fever for close to two weeks this winter... that last thing I'd call *serious* would be all that mess with my heart rate being so low, about a year ago.

What are the top 3 things that you wish you could do?
Get paid for performing (drama, choir, flute, whatever), travel the world, and finish my thesis by May 15.

What was the last thing that someone said to you that you will remember forever?
Honestly, I don't remember. Perhaps my sister telling me she was having another baby?

So, there you go. Now I have to tag five people-- so Masimba, Maggie, Dan & Nancy, Barb, and Abson & Lara, y'all are the lucky five! Mainly because you are pretty much the only five who I know personally or haven't already been tagged. =D

Considering I've wasted the last 3 hours, I'll have to wait and complete this tomorrow. But I will - I promise! (Hopefully that won't become the "last lie I told"!)

Hi Amie,
I will try to answer the questions little by little. When I am done, I will post them.
As far as the top three things I wish I could do, the answer is very close to yours :-) Play music professionally, finish my PhD, take Lara to Venice or/and Israel.
