1. Three words that describe your weekend - I was going to say hospital; adhesives; tired. (I was in the Acute Cardio Care Unit of Epworth Hospital, Richmond until Sunday afternoon, at which point I was moved to another ward. Back home now.) But then I realised that that was the previous weekend (the days of the week are all a blur). OK.

Melbourne; Queensland; relief
(Got back home on Saturday night.)

2. I don't really get the appeal of..AFL (Hello Victoria, other things do actually happen in the world during the week leading up to the AFL grand final. I'm still getting over 'which player is in doubt' bulletins being given a higher rating on the news telecast than half a dozen house fires in 24 hours.)

3. I like people who like..stuff I like.

4. What's on your mind at the moment? Muscles pulled horribly by stitches.

5. You have one month to travel. Where would you go? NZ (God willing, in the summer holidays this year.)

Ben McLaughlin said...

Tardy, tardy!

Wendy- I hope the part went well, and that your husby hand a great time.

Al- I can understand why people wouldn't like death metal. Totally. But as someone who loves it very much, I wish I could describe all the factors of why I do love it.

George- So you'd be home now? I hope it's been a fantastic holiday, and that it's not too hard to get back in to the swing of things post break.

BDeb- it's sneeze blow cough at our place too. Not fun. I hope you are feeling better now.

Pedro- I'm sure after your weekend grandfinal party you'll have a brand new attitude about footy?

Kim- How can a person not like candlelight? I'll grant you the flickeriness gets annoying when you're trying to read, but come on, think of the abience!

Cj- I like when people talk about what their reading as well. It gives you a bit more insight into what the person is interested in.

Helen- I'm sorry to hear that your health has not been very good. I hope that things improve on that front.

Maso- We had the same computer games answer. I concur.

Ruth- that's an interesting attitude to travelling. Says a lot about how much you like being with your fam that you'd be just as happy holidaying at Penrith as holidaying in Hawaii:)

Simone- I like your honesty in question 3. We all probably feel that way. Yep, anywhere would be good.

Karen- I think sadly low carb is essentially in and of itself uninteresting. It's part of The Fall.

Dawn- wow, moving back to Sydney? Aww it'll be sad to farewell the Southern Highlands..

Laetitia- I'm really pleased to hear that the op went well and that you're doing okay. That's great news.

Georgina said...

Yes I am back thanks!! (smothers a yawn) and glad of it. There's no place like home!!!
