Who thinks up these things?

 1.What was the last thing you put in your mouth?
 Fish and chips

2. Where was your profile pic taken? 
The picture in the sidebar is taken at my computer desk

3. Worst pain you've ever experienced? 
That depends how you rate "worst". Toothache is bad, ear infection might possibly be worse. Childbirth is intense but at least there are rests. Psychic pain is another horrid experience.

4. Favorite place you've traveled? 
All of them! anywhere there is good food and interesting stuff to do.

5. How late did you stay up last night? 
About 11pm.

6. If you could move somewhere else, where would it be? 
I love some of the older areas of Sydney. How about this redeveloped factory building with Anzac Bridge on one side and the harbour on the other?

8. Which of your Blogger friends lives closest to you? 
Elephant's Child is the closest, about 3 hours drive from here.

I cry at anything or nothing so it was probably a sad video or something  like that.

11. Who took your profile photo? 
One of my kids.

12. Who was the last person you took a picture with?
I think the last was a picture of me and my friends from student days.

Spring.

14. If you could have any career, what would it be?
Postnatal doula. I do both birth work and postnatal support right now but I love the postnatal the most.

15. Do you think relationships are ever worth it? 
What would life be without relationships?

16. If you could talk to ANYONE right now who would it be?
I do talk to anyone so it would be the closest person. Or the one who started a conversation

17. Are you a good influence?  
Yes. Except with Harry, who I indulge thoroughly.

18. Does pineapple belong on pizza?
No but it's yummy all the same.

19. You have the remote, what channel? 
ABC (the national broadcaster) or SBS (the multicultural broadcaster) probably. SBS shows lots of foreign films, which I like.

  4. Love your answer - and knowing that I am your geographically closest blogger was a bit of a surprise. And a nice one.
    You are so right about psychic pain. On the physical front, an abscess on my fallopian tubes was something I don't want to experience again.

    1. I have never heard of an abscessed fallopian tube before but abscesses always hurt a lot so no surprise!
      I have read blogs written closer than yours but haven't pursued them

    2. If I could move somewhere else, it would be Australia. A bit late in the day now but if I had discovered Aus in my youth, I might well have moved. I just feel completely at home there.

      Do you think relationships are ever worth it? How could anyone disagree except a terminal misanthrope?

    4. Nick,
      You would be right at home here, drinking turmeric lattes with the inner west lefties.

    5. Treey,
      A three hour drive is sometimes considered local. I have a friend who lives five hours away and we meet in the middle for coffee.

  5. If I had the choice of moving anywhere, if I could, another commonwealth country sounds appealing. Definitely an English-speaking one.

    1. Mark,
      It's good to have you here!
      I would have thought that if you were drinking whiskey with Charles Bukowski, you wo uldnt much mind what kind it was?

      Delete
    2. when I was a drinker I didn't go top shelf but that bottom shelf crap was too hard on the mind. From what I know Bukowski really didn't care as long as someone else was paying.

  7. It's many years since I saw a meme. They were all the rage when I started blogging over 10 years ago. I think they are useful for getting to know people. I can't recall if I've ever competed one. Will I do this one? Perhaps if I ever find (ie allocate) the time.
