Can't resist a meme...

Making the rounds, most recently seen at MaggieMay's...And perfect for the end of a day filled first with much too much gravitas and then lots and lots of laughter.

4 first names of crushes:
1. Simone (my first real "love"...at 16/17...one of my best friends around then, and for many years after. For a long time, Simone was to be the name of my daughter. Now I know there will be no daughter! BUt she would still be Simone!)
2. Peter (16-year-old giddiness)
3. Lilia (danger - no comment)
4. Julie (a current friend, with whom I started out by wildly crushing out on her...)

4 Pieces of Clothing I wish I still owned (and/or that still fit):
1. vintage green crushed velvet cocktail dress (from some super-skinny days)
2. spring green featherweight long-sleeve t-shirt, which I've recently lost
3. grey nubby wool mid-season jacket - why did I give that to the Goodwill a few months ago???
4. pink and grey, very thin, hooded sweatshirt I lost at dance camp in 2003 (to be precise!)

4 names I've been called at one time or another:
1. MC Ileola
2. Puppy
3. Fucksy
4. Eep

4 Professions I secretly Want to Try:
1. professional dancer
2. novelist
3. policy analyst for an activist organization
4. proprietor of pretty, much-loved urban cafe

4 Musicians I'd most want to go on a date with:
1. Neko Case
2. Lucinda Willliams
3. Feist
4. Roger Daltrey circa Woodstock

4 Foods I'd rather Throw than Eat
1. horseradish (including wasabi)
2. marshmallow
3. custard of any sort
4. chicken (I'm a longtime vegetarian. But not a meat-loathing one. Even when I was eating meat, though, I was SO over chicken.)

4 Things I Like to Sniff
1. sun-warmed cedar forest
2. berry-scented things
3. an orange being peeled when I don't expect it
4. the steam from dryer vents

4 people I tag (but, uh, no pressure):
1. Heu mihi
2. Medieval Woman
3. Squadratomagico
4. Psychgrad

Fucksy? You must be something in the sack, girl!

And for profession #4: Are we thinking along the lines of "The Planet"?

Thanks for the tag: got mine done!

Hee, hee.

Hmmm...The Planet...I hadn't been thinking someplace quite so crowded and noisy, actually. Probably somehting a bit more laid-back and - dare I say, hippie-ish. (Urbane hippie-ish?) But it's not a bad idea, the Planet, not at all.

I know - quite opposite with food preference...I like horseradish, mushmellows and chicken...custard, I could take it or leave it.

Thanks for the tag!
