Tag Tag

I was tagged twice last week. Sorry I forgot until a few days ago, and it's taken 3 attempts to finish it!

Floatykatja tagged me this:


‘The rules are simple. There are 9 questions (3², each of which has 3 answers, to give a total of 27, or 3³. The whole point is that the questions are somewhere between eclectic, banal and downright bizarre, so that you can answer completely truthfully without actually giving much away. Just put down the first three answers that come to mind if you can’t work out the “most appropriate” three.’

Lotus and someone else (sorry I have lost track) tagged me with the earliest memory/5 memories...

I have very few early memories, and I think there is a blur between growing up seeing photos and what I would have remembered without them.

Let's just say it was when my Dad's friend Giles came around and sat outside my little Wendy House drinking tea out of a tiny teacup whilst I hosted him from inside with my tiny teapot, pouring refills through the window.

Telekinesis is popular! Mr Frog went for it as well.

Fiwa did a meme where the answers have to be one word - some of your answers almost qualify!

Hi,Olivia...nice tag,this one...hey,what'd u want to do with telekinesis and invisibility,I wonder?I think we deserve a post on each of these topics.Grin.

I have noticed a distinct tendency for these tags to become increasingly silly. Now, no one enjoys a good laugh more than I do. Except maybe the wife...or the boys down at the club...or maybe... Alright, then, just about anyone enjoys a good laugh more than I do, but that's not the point. The point is that, if this silliness continues, I shall be forced to write increasingly pointless comments on the attached threads.

Olivia said...

Katja - well,it saves a lot of effort :P


Nikki - will you come here now that you are on Wordpress?
I really couldn't think of much to say...


Amit - I might change my mind on the invisibility one. But I can't think of anything else.


Some British General - welcome. Hehe, I must say, I find your pointless comment very amusing, sir.

nikkipolani said...

Olivia, here, there, wherever... I have this linked on Wordpress but I can't comment during the day (some ridiculous censor against blogger). So there you have it.

Hello! It's sooo quiet over on P27, but much more activity on your blogger blog, I notice.

Telekenesis is a good choice. I'd have that, teleportation and transmogrification. I'd be such a good x-men character ;)

Olivia said...

Nikki - aha. I see. *nods slowly*
It's busier here anyway, look even Panda came back.


Minstrel - thanks for joining in! Your beer, was it an Asahi or a Bud? :P
Hey, X-ray vision would be a good one!


Pandy - I know, what is wrong over there?
It' been busier here for a long time now, though as I am blogging less it's not even as busy as it was earlier this year.

Teleportation! Why didn't I think of that? I like it. Shall swap it with invisibility. I don't need to be invisible if I can fly or teleport. And transmogrification is the coolest one and you can have heaps of fun with it, though teleporting is still better.

Hello Dear, it's Alohalani.

I can picture you playing "tea party." I had a marijuana tea party once when I was 19.


Christopher said...

I think my usage in my blog that I discussed I would have discovered it anyways, reguardless of everything I have tried, that was the only one that got me.

Olivia said...

Alohalani! *hugs*
Hehe, you are cheeky :P


Christopher - yeah, I guess you are right, unfortunately...but hey, it's over now!
