Tagged!

I would never do this on Facebook – although I have indulged in similar memes on YouTube – but on a blog it feels a little more grown up! So thanks to Brits in Bosnia for tagging us; here goes with our answers.

1. What are your current obsessions?
Mine is probably that BBC drama Ashes to Ashes Season 2 is available on iTunes. Rowan’s would be amigurumi. (see previous post)

2. Which item from your wardrobe do you wear the most often?
My one decent pair of jeans. I need to buy new ones but I haven’t found any at a price I don’t baulk at. I’m probably looking in the wrong places!

3. What's for dinner?
Could be Uncle Ben’s Sweet and Sour chicken – which we can buy from Tuš.

4. Last thing you bought?
The last thing I tried to buy was a new zip top for those (rare) cool moment in the summer. I failed as the one I wanted was only available in XXL!

5. What are you listening to?
The new singles by The Gentlemen. Should I declare an interest or just tell you to check them out on iTunes?

6. If you were a god / goddess what would you be?
An imposter?!

7. Favourite holiday spots
Just had a great break in Dubrovnik, Croatia, but would love a trip back to New York.

8. Reading right now?
Not really reading as much I should right now, but am working my way through a couple of copies of Newsweek and the UK launch issue of Wired.

9. Four words to describe you
Creative, inquisitive, optimistic, pragmatic.

10. Guilty pleasure
Could be the Lindt Lindor or the Cadbury’s Dairy Milk – both safely stashed in the cupboard!

11. Who or what makes you laugh?
Our last burst of truly uncontrollable laughter was brought on by Ricky Gervais in Ghost Town.

12. Favourite spring thing to do?
Riding my mountain bike up mountains.

13. Planning to travel next?
Half planning to take a friend from the UK, also in Mostar, to Split, Croatia, so they can get a McDonalds. The Golden M has not been granted entry to Bosnia and Herzegovina.


14. Best thing you ate or drank lately?
The steak pizza, comically called ‘Canibales’, at pizzeria Roma, in Mostar.

15. Your most common mode of transport?
A battered Toyota Hiace kombi – or I walk!

16. Favourite ever film
That’s a tough call. It used to be Lucky Break but now I’m not so sure.

17. Care to share some wisdom?
I crammed as much as I could into this three minute video!

18. Song you can't get out of your head?
Now I’ve thought about it for too long it’s ‘Nista’ by Laka.

Rules of the meme. Respond and rework. Answer questions on your own blog. Replace one question. Add one question. Tag 8 people.

Here I will fail fantastically, for I inhabit a small blog world, half of which has already been engaged in this game. But perhaps Katie in Mostar can be tempted to join in!

You can get uncle Ben's from Tus?

And Dave is having the same jeans problem. Either way too much money or 15KM from the market and fall apart very fast.

Thanks for responding to the meme.

I loved ghost town! Ashes to Ashes is great too, I might consider having a look on itunes for that!

David said...

We just finished Ashes To Ashes series 1 on BBC America. I'm not sure when we will get series 2.

I hope you have a chance to see more of the U.S. than New York! I've only been to NYC one time, but it certainly seemed a whole different world than the middle part of the country where I've spent most of my life.

@Brits in Bosnia: Yeah, boil-in-a-bag rice and jars of sauce. They do a Mexican sauce that isn't bad either!

@Sam M: I signed up for my Season 2 pass last night! I think it's releasing them about a week behind.

@David: We've also visited Vegas, LA and Tulsa! I'd agree NYC is a whole different world...and I also hope we get the chance to see more of the US!

Jars of sauce? What are we doing at Mercator? Must get to Tus quicksmart.

If you ever find an answer to the jeans problem then let us know - we too are baulking at the price of jeans here!
