23rd Post Meme

| | Comments (0)

Neil tagged me with this the other day. The 23rd post meme.

  • Search your blog archive
  • Find your 23rd post
  • Find the fifth sentence - this is meant to say something about you
  • Post the text of the sentence in your blog along with these instructions
  • Tag five people to do the same

    Well here's the 5th sentence of my 23rd post:

    and I hate microsoft with a vengeance (unpatched sql system=secure; patched sql system=vulnerable)..

    Well that was exciting ;)
    But I don't do tagging, so if you feel like doing it anyway, go for it :)

  • This was a favourite list before I made the big one - although strangely enough not everything ended up on the big list...

  • bright shiny coloured things - this is a big category encompassing things like fireworks, glitter, fairy lights, christmas decorations, candles, sparklers, bubbles etc.
  • Roast Pork with crackling, apple sauce and gravy, the way my mother makes it
  • warm fluffy doonas
  • John Williams music
  • my digital camera
  • ice crystals
  • warm paper that's just come out of a photocopier (also warm clothes that have just come out of a clothes dryer)
  • lying warm and dry in bed and listening to it raining outside

  • This was in my TopStuff blog, but I'm nuking it, so moving it here.

    Just a few of my favourite things :)
    This was compiled from stacks of online quizzes, and then sorted into some sort of category order.
