One Word

The other day, the lovely and talented Brenda from Brenda’s Blog in Paraguay tagged me for a fun meme. The most difficult part of this meme, however, is that you can only answer the questions with a single word. You people have read my blog, I’m not exactly known for my lack conciseness. Newcomers to Wandering the World might well think that my moto here is: “Why say in two words what you can say in twenty?”

Since I am never one to turn away a challenge, here goes:

1. Where is your cell phone? Purse

2. Where is your significant other? Work

3. Your hair color? Black

4. Your mother? Busy

5. Your father? Retired

6. Your favorite thing?
Books

7. Your dream last night?
Vivid

8. Your dream/goal?
Author

9. The room you're in?
Living

10. Your hobby?
Knitting

11. Your fear? Numerous

12. Where do you want to be in 6 years? Earth

13. Where were you last night? Friend’s

14. What you're not? Employed

15. One of your wish-list items? ipod

16. Where you grew up? Canada

17. The last thing you did? Comment

18. What are you wearing? Clothing

19. Your TV? Sony

20. Your pet? Someday

21. Your computer? MacBook

22. Your mood? Sleepy

23. Missing someone? Always

24. Your car? Taxi

25. Something you're not wearing? Socks

26. Favorite store? Roots

27. Your summer? Busy

28. Love someone? Yes

29. Your favorite color? Blue

30. When is the last time you laughed? Today

31. Last time you cried? Recently

The other part of the challenge is to nominate five people to take up the challenge on their own blogs. With NaBloPoMo drawing to a close I have chosen to nominate a few of my fellow NaBlo’ers because if they are anything like me they are running out of truly interesting content and counting down the hours until this month is over and they can take a day off.

Great meme! And, yeah, I can use the inspiration. This is a good one. Thanks for the nomination--answers coming soon.

Nicole said...

When I started reading this one I was afraid to find my name at the bottom, hehe :D
But I actually like this. It's quick, painless and short :)
Not sure if I find 5 people to pick this one up though.
I'll try :)

I love your answers. Not wearing socks? It must be warm where you are :D!

Strange Pilgram said...

Thanks! Now how do I get this on my blog? Copy and paste? I'm realizing that I'm still new to this. Don't worry, I'll figure it out ;) Thanks again and you still rock! Love your blog,
Christine

illahee said...

I learned that you don´t have a car and that you use a Mac.

I want a Mac, but I am in a family of PC users :)

LadyFi said...

Aha - a fellow Mac user! And I fellow barefooter person .. I hate socks and never wear them indoors.

I don't hate ya...winter is fun!

Strange Pilgram said...

hey! we have the same favorite color! Like two ships that pass in the night or star crossed lovers or some-such non-sense. Thanks for the Meme... and as much as I bitched and moaned, it was fun.

;)

Well, thank you! I really need to learn how to ship to "Everywhere Else" as Etsy calls it. I am still so new to it all.

And your #'s 6 and 8 are exactly what mine are!

Betty said...

I see you comment at Brenda´s a lot and thought I´d check out your blog. Looks good!
You grew up in Canada? Where? I grew up in Vancouver. Now I also live in Paraguay.

Kat said...

Oh, this would be so hard for me to do. For the same reasons you list. Why say in one word. What you can say in many, many more. With fragments. And elipses. All for "dramatic" effect :-)

illahee said...

ok, got it done.

and i thought i'd point out that i'm trying to finish up blog 365, which means i have another month of blogging every day after nablopomo finishes! crazy!
