Twisted meme

Did this meme back in May, but I got an idea from Karen's version. When she didn't like her responses to one question she just did a new set of (riotous) answers. So here I go again: How I'd answer if wishes were horses.

What were you doing 10 years ago?
I was a nun. Then I turned forty and decided to live a little.

Five things on your to-do list for today:
1) Buy new shoes. 10 pairs.
2) Meet with broker to discuss my stock portfolio.
3) Lunch with Yann Martel. He's interested in some kind of collaboration.
4) Teleconference with producers of Under the Tuscan Sun about a film deal for Café au Lait.
5) Leave for working vacation on Mustique with mysterious significant other.

What are three of your bad habits?
1) Collecting pink diamonds.
2) Men.
3) Wishful thinking.

What would you do if you were a billionaire?
I'd give it all away - well, most of it anyway.

What are some snacks you enjoy?
1) Frogs' legs.
2) Eels en brochette
3) Truffles. I've got my own pigs sniffing them out at a farm in France.
4) Escargot
5) Whipped cream served on hard - um - chests.

What were the last five books you read?
1) The Complete Works of Shakespeare
2) War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy
3) Ulysses by James Joyce
4) Delta of Venus by Anais Nin
5) The Bible

What are five jobs you have had?
1. Body double for Beyonce
2. Owner-director of eco-resort
3. Writer on location for the National Geographic Magazine
4. Writer of obscure literary masterpiece
5. Writer of blockbuster popular novel.

Five places you’ve lived
1) Tuscany, Italy
2) Provence, France
3) Patagonia, Argentina
4) Harbour Island, Bahamas
5) In my head, mostly.

You are my new hero! Love this.

Flowerpot said...

good one Liane! I live in my head a lot too. It's not always a good place to be but there you go....

Yvonne said...

That looks like it was a lot of fun to write. Must do a fantasy meme too - especially the 10 pairs of shoes.

PJ said...

Fantastic answers! Actually these are the sort of questions you could ask your characters when you're getting to know them.

Chumplet said...

Wow. I wish I had your life.

Only 10 pairs?

Zinnia Cyclamen said...

Liane, we have so much in common. Let's do lunch in Antigua - I'll have my people call your people, OK?

Pacha said...

What really a nun?

And Patagonia??? When? How? What? Such a tantilising meme...says so much but leaves so many stories untold.


Pacha said...

And Tuscany? Where? Where? Where?

anti-wife, I'm no hero. Just another dreamer... :)

Flowerpot, it's a fun place for sure... Sometimes.

Yvonne, lots of fun. Fantasizing is what I do best.

PJ, now there's an idea!

Chumplet, me too!

Zinnia, Antigua? Consider it done!

Pacha, sadly, it's all fantasy. Which is why I have to write, I suppose.

JJ, if only...
