Tagged ..... again!!!!!!!!!!

I got tagged with a meme again!
I know, I still owe the one Korie tagged me with, at the beginning of Nablopomo!
Shhhhhhhh, I know, Nablopomo was in November, you're so right!!!!
But I didn't even know what a meme was back then!
I had never heard of them before and I already got tagged!
Perhaps I should not have brought this one up any more, but hey ...
I'm always much too honest, I know!
And then there's still the one Andie tagged me with, "seven things I approve of".
She said it would be easy, but it isn't, well at least I don't think it is.
(But I've found the right solution for that one, I think! I am going to tag myself with the one she has published today! It looks so much easier! I hope she approves??

The other one does not inspire me at all, I don't know where to start?
Seven things I approve of?
I looked it up ... the dictionary says, things that I consider good, fair, or right! Sigh!
I am a Libra!!! There is always something good, but then again, there might be some downside to it as well, and I do not approve of everything just like that, you know???
Any Libra's in the audience that can relate to that? How do I solve this? Can anyone help me?
... Sigh!!!
Anyway ...
Christine tagged me yesterday, and I decided to do this one RIGHT AWAY!
If you don't do them at once, you'll find your drawers stuffed with them!

Here’s how it works: Use the first letter of your name to answer each question. Must be places or names…Nothing made up. Can’t use your own name for boy/girl’s name question. If you can’t answer, skip to next one.

1. Famous Singer: That would be a John, or a Jim, or a Joan! Okay, I'll choose Joe ...
Joe Cocker!
I love his raw voice and his spastic moves.
Plus ... he's a real gentleman, you can always leave your hat on!

2. Four Letter Word: Jeez!!!!!

3. Street: Jezusstraat. It's in Antwerp.
One of the first streets I learned to find when I moved there.

4. Colour: Jaune de Joucas. Jaune de Joucas looks like this ...
It's a very special yellow-ish kind of colour.

LOL!!! It's not, I just made that up, but I lost so much time browsing through paint colour collections! Boss, Dulux ... you name them, I've seen them!
Even Martha Stewart's site!

None of their poetic colour names started with a J, so ... I had to use my own imagination.
I know it's against the rules, but I had to come up with something didn't I?
Of course I could also just have said Jade, but that's not nearly as interesting as Jaune de Joucas. Right? Right!

5. Gifts/Present: Just another cookbook!
(Hehehe, I'm getting the hang of this! Whoeahahaha!)

6. Vehicle: This one's easy. A Jeep. I guess if you have to cross a desert to get to work, or a battlefield for that matter, they can be very useful. But since we have none of the above in Belgium, a car like that looks ridiculous to me here.

7. Things in Souvenir Shop: Junk? Or ... "soon to be" junk?
I worked in a souvenir shop once in Bruges! We sold
Manneken Piss corkscrews and all that kind of stuff ...
FYI ... Manneken Piss is very famous in Belgium.
Maybe I should tell you a bit more about him someday ...

8. Boy Name: Jantje. It's like John, only a smaller, Belgian version.

9. Girl Name: Jientje!! Hehehe, I already explained that one earlier!
Shit!! That does not count huh? ( I just read the rules.. a little bit late huh?)
Okay ...
Ahhhmmm, Julie. Julie, we have Julie's over here too!
Julie and her mom shop at the cheese shop where I work every Wednesday afternoon.
Julie it is!

10. Movie title: Jaws. In fact, there are lots of movies named Jaws!
Jaws 1, Jaws 2, Jaws 3, Jaws 3D ... Need I go on?

11.Drink: Judas, it's a Belgian beer.

12. OCCUPATION: Jailor. My father was one. I looked it up...

  • The work can be stressful and hazardous.
  • Most correctional officers are employed in State and local government prisons and jails.
  • Job opportunities are expected to be excellent.

13. Celebrity: John Mc Enroe. I used to love to see him get into an argument about the ball!

14. Magazine: Journal de la cuisine. French cuisine.

15. City: Juan les Pins. It's in France, at the côte d' azur. They have an very special event coming up, in the month of february, Pain... Amour et Chocolat.
Translated in English it just does not have that same "zing"! Bread, love and chocolate.

16. Sports: Jumping. I think that it's the only sport I can bare to watch for more than half an hour.

17. Fruit: Junior Pineapple. It's bigger than a baby pineapple, and smaller than a regular one!
Hehehe, clever huh?

18. Reason for Being Late to work: Just as I was leaving the appartment I remembered I still had to feed the cat!

19. Something that you throw away: Junk you bought in a souvenir shop in Belgium
Those Manneken Piss corkscrews perhaps?

20. Something you shout: Jeeeeeeeeeezus!! I did it!!! It's finished!!!

I am tagging .... Julie?
She is the one who gave me those beautiful flowers last week!
I want to take the opportunity to give them to Christine, Sandy and Eve as well!!
Thanks, you're such great friends!!
