Part one of the dreaded picture meme!

Tagged by



1. Answer the questions with your own pics.
2. You can put as many pics as you'd like.
3. Tag 5 people to do the same.
4. Have fun!

1. Favorite pic(s) of yourself


There can be only one! Seriously. I hate getting my photo taken. I'll actually leave the room when the cameras come out. This is the only pic of myself I have ever even remotely liked. Moving on!

2. Pic of your car:

On the starting grid at Bathurst!

Me and my car on the starting grin (number 1 poll position!) at the Mount Panorama raceway in Bathurst, NSW. Happy days!! I'd still be there driving around the track if I hadn't made plans to be someplace for Christmas . . . 5 years ago!

3. Pic of your favorite color(s):


4. Pic of your favorite holiday:


Because Christmas in Australia falls in summer, outdoor lights at Christmas time are my absolute favourite thing about the holidays!

5. Pic of your pet(s):

Mad Max

Meet Mad Max! Evillest hench-kitty - nevermind the tinsel fetish. He likes to sleep on it, okay? He was a baby at Christmas when I got him, and he associates tinsel with happy coming home with mummy time -snickers-

6:Pic of your favorite tv show(s):

All that extra sexy red goodness!



No brainer, right? -giggles-


The original and still the best!

7. Pic(s) of your favorite bands or artists:


Nickelback - love the Chad!


Shinedown - wicked cool rock


Guilty secret . . .


I do have this thing for Canadian rock bands . . .

8. Pic(s) of something that relaxes you:


There must be bubbles, something indulgent to drink, candles, and the supervising pet! Music is also a requirement, books are optional.

9. Pic(s) of your favorite store to shop at:


Australian store selling candles and all kinds of yummy smelling incense and stuff - just walking into the place gets me high!

10. Pic(s) of your favorite drink(s):


Straight tequila kills me now, but this gets me buzzing nicely!


The perfectly chilled vodka martini. A normal martini is likewise acceptable - but it has to be dry to the point of being arid. Simply touch the vermouth bottle to the glass, thanks! -winks-


Coffee! Essential for the morning after any of the above! Or just as the morning heart starter.


Or, on those mornings when it's not a kick start but a defribrillator you need, a Voltage.  Iced coffee mix, skim milk and ice, four shots of expresso and a handful of coffee beans tossed in a blender and served cold.  If this doesn't wake you up, just give it up!

And I'm not tagging anyone, since most of my flist has probably seen it/been tagged already!

Your cat is adorable :D

I know - he's a firm favourite at the vet's. They always make a big fuss over him, as does anyone who comes to the house.

He's not just cute, he's got yards of personality too. And I adore him bunches!

i ♥ your kitty kat. yay for all your fav tv shows. i looove CSI, the original one,too. i hate that they killed off warwick. i loved him. and now Grissom is leaving, too??!!! it's just not gonna be the same:( i'm sad...

i have an obsession with candles, too. i love yankee candle store. it's one of my fav places to shop. candles and body sprays from bath and body. i have like 50 sprays and i'm always getting more lol

lol me and my husband learned about that in bartending school. just touching the vermouth bottle to the glass. we both found it amusing. like, so isn't that just a glass of vodka? why does it have a name, then??? lol and i've never had coffee before in my life. goddessrockgeek thinks i'm a freak!! lol

thanks for doing the meme!!! i had fun doing mine and reading through yours!!

I hear ya on CSI - I was near in shock when they killed Warwick! And losing Grissom - man, they're never going to be able to recover from that. He's what makes the whole show!

lol me and my husband learned about that in bartending school. just touching the vermouth bottle to the glass. we both found it amusing. like, so isn't that just a glass of vodka? why does it have a name, then???

See, the reason I like my martinis arid is because I'm firmly of the belief that it's that nasty vermouth that causes the hangovers. Gin is a sophisticated liquour, it would never do that to you unless you pollute it with vermouth. Ditto with vodka.

And you call it a martini because you serve it in a martini glass (chilled, please) with an olive or two (because you should always have food with your alcohol, plus it's a fruit, so it's good for you -winks-). And because it sounds more sophisticated to order a dry martini than to ask for a glass of vodka!! -snickers- That's my theory anyway!

And it was a fun way to waste a day!!

Okay, first of all...MOUNT PANORAMA FTFW!!!

I went there a few years ago on a family holiday, and my Dad drove us around the track. In our brand new Holden Commodore SS. He ignored the speed limit signs...

Aww *pets kitty* Cute.

dusk. Where is it, cos I've never heard of it. I want to go there.

Mount Panorama was the freakin' bomb!! I loved that place insanely - and yeah, what speed limit? It wasn't til we were at either the museum at Pit Lane or one of the wineries that someone warned us about how the cops stake the place out to catch revheads who wanna test out the track.

Lucked out, but I have to say, going across Skyline, even at a moderate speed, had me scared shitless! That is some unforgiving road, right there.

Check out dusk.com.au - they're in most states, but probably only capital cities.

LOL We lucked out too. Thank God.

I will check it out, but I live 600 km north of Brisbane.
