Tagged, Part II

One more meme and I'm all caught up! Check me out! Ticking stuff off my "to do" list and all!

This tagging comes from Spinning Sue. She's Australian! And lives in the U.K.! Out in the country! And she posts lots of pictures of where she lives! And she knits! She's a very good knitter too and encourages me to be a better knitter. And she spins her own wool! Dyes and spins her own wool! How's that for cool? And her dog, Max, is cute! Go check her out and drool over her knitted goodies and her yummy wool.

Seven Times Seven Meme:

~ See Bayern-München play live.
~ Have perfume made just for me.

Blush! You make me sound wonderful and I haven't knitted a stitch, spun or dyed anything all week because I've been a bit frantic at work! Thanks for doing the meme I love finding out a bit more about people!

The weird thing - I'm from Adelaide!

(still blushing!)

Hey now! Whats going on there dixy? I saw a comment you left someplace and just had to jump over and see what your doing. Do ya realize Werder Bremen is gonna jump up and whoop Both Hamburg and Bayern as soon as this craz long break is over? I had the pleasure of seeing Werder Bremen play live a few months ago. I blogged it with some pics. Dixie would you mind if I was to put a link to you on my blog? I like what your doing here.

Ooo, I gotcha on the coffee, skinheads, Bu$h, techno, Hilton, Mockingbird, Catcher, Potter, Owen, Pulp Fiction and Love.

I also know an Arab d00d who will make perfume for you, but not a lot of good it'll do because he's here with me on the Aachener Flohmarkt. Maybe he has a brother...

I absolutely LOVED "Stones From the River". But I have to admit that I HATED "She's Come Undone". I just couldn't make myself like Dolores.

Happy Birthday, my friend! You catch up with me today. [vbg]

Sue! I'm so excited to find out that you're from Adelaide. I've never been there but my husband spent three months there with his cousins about 15 years ago. He loved it. Still talks about it all the time.

And you're more than worth the plug for your blog.

Rich - feel free to link me. And you're dead wrong about Bremen, my new friend. Bayern's practically got the championship sewed up!

Lisa, you're making me want to come to Aachen to watch movies with you and get some perfume made.

Ann and Michele, thanks for the birthday wishes. Love you both.

I missed your birthday? Darn! Happy belated birthday anyway - and I hope you celebrated well.

Having my own "signature scent" is a dream of mine too... and having seen the prices that get charged, I fear it will remain so....
