a weekend meme

because i utterly lack any inspiration due to having stayed up very, very late attending a wedding yesterday (08.08.08) and because i have run around doing errands all day and because it's been almost a week since ANYONE has posted on this blog, i thought i'd do a little meme i just came across on woman on the verge. i will in no way be as funny as gwen was, but here you go:

1.  what is your favorite quotable line from a movie?
"i'm goin' crazy up here on the lake." - fargo
"have fun storming the castle." - the princess bride
"he was just funny lookin' in kind of a general sorta way." - fargo
"it's good to be the king." - history of the world, part 1
"it was abby something....abby normal." - young frankenstein

i think it was supposed to be one quote, but there you have it, i'm already violating the meme. (and what does that word mean anyway?)

2.  who's the most famous person you've talked to?
although i used to frequently go to the movies with charles barkley when i lived in phoenix, i never really talked to him, since you don't really talk during a movie, right?

so, i guess it must be crown princess mary of denmark. before she became the crown princess, of course and was just some australian chick who worked at microsoft so she could get a work permit to stay in the country.

3.  how many boxes or bags of chips are consumed in your household per month?
maybe like one if we're having people over, and what is up with this question anyway? this is a pretty random meme.

4.  what foreign dish do you prepare from scratch and serve?
pretty much any dish i prepare is foreign in some sense, since i am a foreigner living outside my home country. and when i go "home" and prepare danish dishes, they're foreign there. and since most of my cookbooks come from the UK, you might say that all the food in them is "foreign" in some sense too. so who can imagine what was really meant by this question? i suppose i could safely say sushi, which i have made a couple of times, but don't do very often.

5.  what is your favorite section at the supermarket?
the produce section in føtex
the fun/special item section at irma (by this i mean where they have interesting flavored vinegar and such)
all of trader joe's when i get a chance to visit one.
all of whole foods when i get a chance to visit one.
the tea section in sainsbury's when i'm in london.

the last question of this meme is too stupid to do, so i'm leaving it out.

ok, sis, i expect you do this one too. :-)

"It's good to be the king." After learning about the life of Henry VIII, my daughters finally understand what their father means when he says this.
