Five questions meme

1. Leave me a comment saying anything random, like your favorite lyric to your current favourite song.
2. I respond by asking you five personal questions so I can get to know you better.
3. You will update your LJ with the answers to the questions.
4. You will include this explanation and offer to ask someone else in the post.
5. When others comment asking to be asked, you will ask them five questions.



The ever-intriguing goddessrockgeek asked:

1. If you can bring back any former superstar you'd bring back?

Owen Hart. Because that was a damn tragedy and if I could undo it, I would. Ditto for Eddie, Chris Benoit and Test.

But I'm guessing you probably mean still-living superstars. That's tougher. Being as how I've only been a wrestling fan since the late 90s (and I can thank my hubby for that, something I think he has moments regretting, like when I bought four 'Taker t-shirts at the fair last week -snickers-), most of my favourites are still around, either on WWE or TNA.

The one I miss the most, simply for the entertainment value, is Stone Cold Steve Austin - man, I'd love to have him back again!

2. What holiday excites you the most?

I love Christmas. Right now, that's probably because it's easier to get together with my family for the holiday - for fourteen years, I lived 1200 km away, so Christmas meant a very long trip and always being a guest in someone else's home. And not being able to put up a Christmas tree of my own.

Now? I'm living within an hour of all of them, so apart from the logistics of who's going to host the get together, it's actually simple to get everyone together. Plus, I get the chance to host my mother and unmarried sister on Christmas Day, so I get to cook a special meal in my own home, and use my good china and silver.

It's not the gift giving that's important to me, although I like that too - I just like the spirit of the season.

3. If you re-gift any gift you got the holidays last year, it would be?

You know, I don't think I actually got a dud gift last year. Well, maybe - my father-in-law gave me a bottle of super-expensive Quebec maple syrup - I'd give that to someone who could actually appreciate the difference between that and "ordinary" Canadian maple syrup. I would rather have gotten half a dozen cans of the "ordinary" stuff, which we can't get down under!

4. Do you ever sing in the shower?

All the time! I am a shower Diva! Plus I sing in the car. I don't sing on the train though - that would just be weird ;-)

5. What sport if you could be a professional would you play for cash?

Like sport-sport? I'm totally not a sports person. I like exercise - me and my exercise bike are besties, and I looooooove my WiiFit. But sports? Nah, pass.

Now, if we're talking sports-entertainment, or pseudo-sports? Man, I would love to be a race car driver! Best holiday memory ever was getting to drive around a famous mountain racing circuit here in Australia that's an open road most of the year - Mount Panorama at Bathurst.

And there was a round of V8 supercar racing held in Canberra on a street circuit for a couple of years - when they were constructing the track for that, I'd go out of my way driving home to drive sections of it -snickers-

And you know? I've only ever had one speeding ticket. Note, I don't say that I never speed - I've just only been caught once! ;-)

You'll be delighted to know I picked that one up when I started watched True Blood this year - man, I know you know how hot that show is!

Waiting impatiently for Season 2 to start here - next month!

the first one will have going "holy fuck did really just happen?" by the end of it. It's so KICK ASS in season two. I've been shamelessly downloading it every sunday unable to properly wait for it a day or two.

Eric proves what a god he is in season 2.

Hmmmm, let's see:

1. What's your theme song?
2. What song can always get you dancing?
3. All time favourite movie ever!
4. What's your favourite tea or coffee?
5. I'd ask what you want to be when you grow up, but hell, I haven't managed to grow up yet and I'm 47! So, what's your dream job or career?
