Memememe

Chocolate Hazelnut Torte from Sunday lunch today. Got to have the dark chocolate! 😉

Hooray! I was tagged in this meme thing by The Cottage Smallholder. The rule is to tag eight other bloggers and make your own eight questions. 

I’d love to hear from you in the comments!

__..::1* What have you learnt from blogging?
I started blogging when I was an angsty 17 year old. Over the years I’ve learned that it’s a very good idea to just let all the ideas, troubles, annoyances, happiness sprawl on the page. Once they’re there it’s much easier to be reflective and to work things out. I’m actually looking forward to meeting more bloggers. I’m new to the public blogging thing, really. If anyone has any tips, I’m open to learning!

__..::2* What was your proudest moment and why?
Graduation day at university. I have never worked so hard or suffered so much for anything in my life. It was an incredibly tough course (Music and Drama and Theatre Studies) and I learned so much about the world, people and myself.
__..::3* What is the naughtiest thing that you have ever done?

I picked up all the business cards for a rival soprano, put them in my handbag and replaced them with my own. I feel so guilty to this day. I think I’ll put them somewhere else because I can’t live with the guilt.

__..::4* Who or what populates your nightmares?
Men with knives coming to stab me. My mother.
__..::5* Do you have “me time”. If so what do you do and why?
I love meeting up with my friends in Cork and Tweeting/Facebook. I find the internet so relaxing. It’s better than a bath. I also enjoy tidying….
The whole social thing is good for me. I like socialising and meeting with people and the internet opens up the possibilities of who I might meet. 🙂 It’s very useful for keeping in touch with my friends in other countries, which I do every day. I prefer real life contact though, and that’s why it’s important to me to see my close proximity friends regularly.
__..::6* The one food or ingredient that you fret about running out and why?
Dark chocolate. Things can never go completely wrong when there’s good quality dark chocolate in the store cupboard.
__..::7* The best book that you have read in the last five years and why?
OH MY GOD, HARDEST QUESTION EVER!!!!  I’m going to say ‘His Dark Materials’ which is a trilogy by Philip Pullman. It sucks you right it to its world and almost makes you into a character.
From my LiveJournal:

“I’ve been reading Northern Lights and thinking about daemons. When I’m reading it/thinking about it I’m like “Wow, thank God no one will ever separate me from my daemon.” It’s actually surreal to think that I don’t have one. I feel like I do.”

__..::8* If you could erase a person/experience/mistake from your life who/what would it be and why?
No, never. Nothing. I don’t think I’d erase anyone or anything. I’ve learned from everything.
Questions:
1. What inspires you to blog?
2. What’s the best thing about blogging, for you?
3. What is your favourite book of all time?
4. It’s 9pm and for some reason you’ve been hungry all day, despite the three square meals. What do you rustle up?
5. Who are three of your style icons?
6. What’s your current favourite song/piece of music?
7. What’s the last book you read?
8. What is your current favourite recipe?
