Picture Meme

Posted: December 20, 2007 in Uncategorized

Rachel over at Lessons Learned posted this meme and since I’m needing blog food right now, I thought I’d do it… Join in, it’s lots of fun. You’ll be amazed by the photos you find (For the record, it has to be a pic on the first page of google pics – or so saith Jocelyn, who also did it, but with different questions).

How old will you be on your next birthday?

(I particularly like the image of the number on a trash can… sort of appeals to my innate sense of cynicism)

What is the name of a place you would like to visit?

One day I’ll make it there. I’ve been to Oz before, I’m going again in April if all goes well. Maybe this time is the right time. Even if it’s not, I know I’ll be there one day. Because this definitely isn’t my last time in Oz.

What is your favorite place?


It’s a toss up. A comfortable bed. The cottage. Probably the former in the latter would be the best of all worlds.

What are your favorite things?

Well, duh!

What is your favorite food?

In case you don’t recognize it, it’s Vietnamese. I love Vietnamse food with a passion. I could eat pho (sorry, I don’t have all the accents for the “o” – no vietnamese keyboard) every day of the week.

What is your favorite color?

That pretty much covers it. And everything with a tint of red in it. From peach and salmon to orange and wine and strawberry to deep purples… Red attracts me to no end – and i just realized most of those colours are foods… strange. And I had the best salmon yesterday for dinner. Mr. Jazz so rocks in the kitchen. But I digress.

What is your nickname?

Any others are not to be posted for public consumption.

Where were you born?

Yep, despite hating winter, I was born north of the north. Go figure… Actually I left there when I was two months old. I’ve never been there again and truth be told, I wouldn’t be able to find North Bay, Ontario on a map if my life depended on it. Is that sort of pathetic?

    I also love the trash can! The graffiti numbering looks wicked cool.I don’t think I’ve ever eaten Vitnamese, except for that one time I had some strange soup with crispy asian veggies in it, is that Phô?

  2. furiousBall says:

    I love Pho. Which reminds me, that would be good today (it’s chilly)

  3. Tai says:

    I really like this post, might have to do it some day! Your favorite place (bed) and your favorite things (books) are mine, too! And they go so well together, don’t you think?As for Marchbanks, I just googled the name and found some at Chapters! Huzzah, they’re not out of print!

  4. Jazz says:

    Rachel – That could be it. Huge bowls of soup with noodles and, depending, veggies, or chicken, or beef…. So lovely. And grilled lemongrass chicken and basil beef and and *wipes drool from keyboard*Furiousball – it’s always lovely as far as I’m concerned.Tai – Bed and books go together like cocoa and cookies. the perfect match. I checked Marchbanks on Chapters, and here it says unavaible to order… 😦

  5. Dave says:

    I have never heard of OZ before but I have often seen that photo and have known that I would see that plateau in real life one day.

  6. Ian Lidster says:

    I share your affections for many of your items. But, that probably doesn’t come as a surprise. Born in North Bay? So, were you an Air Force brat? Just prying.

  7. Jazz says:

    Dave – Oz, AKA AustraliaIan – I am indeed an air force brat. Yep.

  8. Way cool. I think I’ll do that in my blog tomorrow. Hey, didn’t remember you were born in North Bay. I’m sure you’d find it on a map of Ontario… come on… 😉

  9. CS says:

    North of the north. That’s funny.I didn’t guess the Vietnamese food and thought you were just saying you liked ALL food!

  10. Jazz says:

    HapDow – That presupposes I’d actually dig out my atlas. I’ll have to now though…CS – It ain’t funny if you live there I’ll bet!
