Sunday Stealing: Blame Tara

Today we ripped this meme off a blogger known as MelRoXx of the blog Life of a Mean Jean. She explains that she was tagged to do the meme by gaelikaa and she states that it's called The Blame Tara Meme. But, it was probably stolen there as well. So, of course, that will be as far as we go. Tracing back our theft's thieves might take some time. Link back to us at Sunday Stealing!

Cheers to all us thieves!

Question 1: Who do you think is the hottest movie star?

  • I love it when he winks at his godson
    • Sirius Black by maponto

      Question 2: Apart from your house and your car, what is the most expensive thing you have ever bought?
      • a lot that has been idle for twelve years now (stupid purchase that was)

      Question 3: What is your most treasured memory?

      • cuddling my two boys, the biological and the canine

      Question 4: What is the best gift you’ve ever received as a child?

      • books and piano lessons

      Question 5: What is the biggest mistake you’ve ever made?

      • not asking my father and grandfather to send me to medschool

      Question 6: Give four words to describe yourself.

      • When bored, meme away!

      Question 7: What was your highlight or lowlight of 2008?

      • jumping on a plane to KL for a fantastic weekend (high) and not snapping a single shot of myself digesting lunch at the Petronas (low)

      Question 8: What was your most embarrassing moment?

      • got plenty. mostly most embarrassing; the most face-reddening of all is too embarrasing to not be forgiven and forgotten

      Question 9: Tell something not generally known about yourself.

      • I can't ride a bike

      Question 10: If you were a comic strip/cartoon character, who would you be?

      • Melody. She and I share a similar kind of curiosity and mishief. The sketch here reflects one of my favorite family activities - an only child on her father's shoulder, with Ma walking along. More or less a spoiled brat too (lol)

      Sense and Sensibility: 200th anniversary

      In 1811 Thomas Egerton of Whitehall, London published Sense and Sensibility. Quick math shows it has been two centuries since Jane Austen became a full-fledged author.

      Quite an anniversary, indeed. A celebration, I declare.

      Blogs regarding the publication anniversary of this romance novel picture Jane Austen's engagements whilst making the final touches of her manuscript from Sloane Street. In letters to her sister Cassandra, Jane gave accounts of her shopping for muslin, the party that their brother Henry and SIL Eliza gave; mentioned several acquaintances, and referred to her book as S and S.

      As a fan I wonder which between sense and sensibility did JA deem more important since she portrayed both attributes equally well. I'm obliged to enthuse over my S & S reading experience. Alas, I only managed fourteen chapters before getting sidetracked by another novel, the very first that JA wrote. I will resume and complete my affair with the celebrant before 2011 ends.

      The Rumford is a much more efficient way to heat a room than earlier fireplaces....(Wikipedia on Benjamin Thompson, Count Rumford, designer of tall, shallow fireplaces which are now known as the Rumford, was an Anglo-American physicist known for his investigations of heat)Living in the tropics, I have been in close proximity with only three fireplaces in my life. There was an unused one in the home of my college professor in the Philippines. The other one from which I could feel the heat and see the fire dancing was in a hotel lobby in the Yorkshire Moors. Picture taking was quick. Two old ladies were having tea by it, but that was my first ever real fireplace experience, and I loved it. The latest I have touched is the one in Jane Austen's imaginary Northanger Abbey.
      The fireplace, where she had expected the ample width and ponderous carvings of former times, was contracted to a Rumford, with slabs of plain though handsome marbles, and ornament over it of the prettiest English ch…
