The curious case of my not so idiopathic insomnia and two memes

honestscrap

Its almost 2am and I can’t sleep… Some dude got me mightily worked up this evening and my vexation almost  knew no bounds.. That prompted me to spew my shortlived rant, which I’ve thankfully deleted.  Sowwrry for over exciting you over nothing. I’m over it now anyways…Since I am awake, I might as well do these memes that have been hanging over my head for a whiles now.. First off Naijababe tagged me in February and then both Tigress and Poeticallytinted tagged me with the honest scrap award fairly recently. Since Naijababe’s list is lonnger than 10 items, i will take that as a neccesary and sufficient condition to claim the honesty award! Here goes…

I have unilaterally decided not to tag anyone.. Cos all these memes are sthng else! Errr… the first seven people to read are tagged!

Last time you cried? 12 March 2009, before then sometime in 2003
Are you a bitch? Obviously doesn’t apply
Favorite pastime: Shakespeare + a tall glass of milk + a pack of tortilla chips – heavenly
Hater or lover: Depends on the context
Genuine or fake: Genuine — Typically
Any vices? – Caring too much abt peoples feeling to my own detriment sometimes
Pro life or wire hanger: Depends on the context!

Pro-plastic or natural: Dunno.. Update (due to popular demand) ne pas être dans de nombreuses situations où j’ai eu à choisir

As I have already done the 25 things and the 2 truths 1  lie memes I’ll just leave it at that….

  19. Sometimes ranting then deleting it can be just as cathartic as unleasing your ire on the object of your (extreme) displeasure. I was tempted to ask for the password but figured that curiosity killed the cat!

    Shakespeare, a glass of milk and tortilla chips! Who'd have guessed the latter two would be part of a winning combination!

    Calgary Alberta eh? Let me know when you get there so I can have a place to stop on my cross country trip!

    @MadamSSD — No oh.. I'm completely apolitical….I think the PDP won the elections they did just because they outschemed every other party – not that ppl actually voted. In essence ppl voted by default, that was meant to be a jab at ppl who jump on the winning team, not an allusion to my political leanings…
