50 Things

Thanks to Nic for encouraging me to do this meme.

1. Whats your name spelt backwards?
Asil - never liked that.

My son, who has recently left home, came over for chicken soup & matzo balls - why don't mine stay together like in the movies - the matzo balls not my son!

Everything - just bought a new one so have been downloading/uploading/transferring all weekend.

4. Have you ever licked a 9 volt battery?
Can't recall but doubt it, although something in the deep dark recesses of my mind think otherwise.

5. Last time you swam in a pool?
Think it was last November in Palm Springs - sounds exotic but I shared the pool with a hotel full of young Chinese Christians having a weekend retreat.

6. What are you wearing?
Jeans and a Billabong knock off tshirt.

8. Type of music you dislike most?
Headbanging bass filled noise

10. Do you have cable?
Yes - watch all the do it yourself shows and movies. Rarely watch free to air as I hate the ads.

11. What kind of computer do you use?
Apple Mac now - fell in love with my laptop and have just bought a big one with a really cool screen. We were confused though as we thought they had left the actual computer out of the box till we realised it was part of the monitor - wonderful design.

12. Ever made a prank phone call?
Of course - usual 'is your fridge running'....type ones.

13. You like anyone right now? Like is a weak word. I love a few people, admire many and get frustrated by some.

15. Furthest place you ever travelled? I have been lucky enough to go to many places as I work for an airline. Anywhere is a long way from Australia but there are still a few places on my list like Alaska that I would like to get to one day.

Morning - helps me wakes up.
