Meme Fun

One of my good friends, Steve Sarber, hit me with the Meme Challenge this past week. A meme is basically a mini-interview, started by someone who picks a set number of people to answer a group of questions, those people copy the questions to their blog and pass them on to the set number (in this case 3) of unsuspecting victims, who pass it along, and so-forth.

So, since we KNOW I love to run the yap here we go:

1. If you could have any superpower, what would it be? Why?
You know, I get asked this a lot, mostly because of "Touched by an Alien" and my also being a total comics geek-girl. My answer tends to vary, but these days, I think I have to go for the Flash's super speed, because I just cannot seem to get it all done and the only way to get more hours in the day is to be able to go faster than everyone else. Or something like that.

2. Who is your style icon?

ROFL. Style Icon? Who makes up these questions, Heidi Klum? But, okay, I agreed to play along. Marilyn Monroe. For all the obvious reasons and a lot of the not-so-obvious ones.

3. What is your favorite quote?
Oh, I have a lot of these. Most are listed on my GoodReads page. BUT, if forced to choose, I really have to go with this one:

"I don't want to achieve immortality through my work; I want to achieve immortality through not dying." Woody Allen

4. What is the best compliment you've ever received?

I'm happy to say I've received a lot. I think my all time fave though was from when the chicklet was young. It was Halloween, and, per her request, we were dressed as tigers -- Mama Tiger and Tiger Cub. The hubs was with us, but not in costume. We hit the home of an older man, who proclaimed thus when he opened the door: "Awww, isn't that cute? A mama tiger and a baby tiger...and Mama Tiger's a KNOCKOUT!"

I was willing to stay with this gentleman and chat, potentially for hours, but the hubs, for some strange reason, ran up and dragged us off...

5. What playlist/CD is in your CD Player/iPod right now?
My Alien playlist, because I'm working on "Alien Proliferation". So, lots of Smash Mouth right now, particularly "Get the Picture?" For all playlist options and updates, hit my Playlist page.

6. Are you a night owl or a morning person?
What is this morning you all speak of and why do you seem to like it so? Night owl, all the way. I'm a night creature and prefer it that way.

7. Do you prefer dogs or cats?
I love them both, but when forced to choose, cats. I also love horses, bunnies are just fine, as are ferrets, etc. I'm not much of a girl for birds, though...

8. What is the meaning behind your blog name?
It's what my MC of my Alien series, Kitty, says all the time, kind of her catchphrase. I also felt it was fitting, since this is where I most consistently run the yap.

Choosing who to hit next was hard, since this one's limited to 3. So, I went for other authors:
Amber Scott
Marcy Rockwell
Weston Ochse

Awww, you like kitties. Pun intended. *g* Glad to know I'm not the only night owl around.
Great meme!

Thanks, Brandy! And, yeah, my worship of cats, and your clear worship of same, is one of the many reasons I love you.

lol - I totally guessed that you were a Woody Allen fan :)

If you love kitties you'd get a kick out of the fact that we're already dressing ours up for Halloween. *g* Scary enough they make costumes for cats. Still looking for a cat sized football helmet, though. *g*

I love that Halloween story!

@Danielle - Woody Allen won me over forever with these lines from "Without Feathers": Should I marry W? Not if she won't tell me the rest of the letters in her name.

@Brandy - Dementia Kitty and Mr. Fluffikins refuse to wear collars, let alone costumes. The Killer Canines are sort of willing, but one head shake and the stuff goes flying, so we've given up.

@Sully - I know! It's still like my proudest moment, shallow as that is to admit. LOL The hubs literally snatched the chicklet out of my arms and dragged me off while I was waving merrily at my fan. Good times...good times...

Love your quote!

(I'm not much of a bird fan either)

LOL, thanks! Yeah, I could really go off on a why birds creep me out tangent, but I'll just go with: cats catch 'em, good kitties!

I love the part of Woody's "Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex but were Afraid to Ask" where they're all spermies waiting to "fire," and Woody Allen says, "What if he's masturbating? I could end up on the ceiling."

Good times... good times ;-)

ROFL, Steve. So very true. I love all his earlier movies, but my favorite is probably "Radio Days", which is a very sweet, slice of life movie, thinly veiled about his formative years. I keep on asking for that on DVD and no one in the family complies...

I'm catching this late due to vacay and sick kiddo (now better). So, it's on tomorrow for a PPIF installment where I shall stalk in the answers as much as possible.
