J for Jientje

Libby hated to do it, she said ... but she did it anyway.
She tagged me with this meme.
Here are the rules ...

1. Copy the questions from my post and paste them in a new post on your blog. Then type over my answers with yours.
2. Use the first letter of your first name to answer ALL of the following questions.
3. If the first letter of your name is the same as mine, use your middle or last name.
4. You CANNOT use any word twice, and you CANNOT use your own name for the boy/girl questions.
5. After you are done, tag 5 people.......

So, here we go:

1. What is your name?: Jientje. People often ask me how they should pronounce it.
Like the boy's name Gene, followed by "chu". "Gene-chu", that's how you say my name.
2. A four-letter word: joke
3. A boy's name: John
4. A girl's name: Joanne
5. An occupation: a janitor
6. A colour: Jade. Or would you prefer "Jaune de Joucas"?
Some of my early readers might remember this. I did this meme before.
It was in my early blogging days and I could not think of any colour starting with a J, so I made this one up!

7. Something you wear: .Jeans There's a sale going on at my local jeans store. Maybe I should buy a new one. I've lost some weight lately and I can remove the one I'm wearing now without even opening the zipper!!
8. A Food: Jumping Jackets, it's a recipe I've found with jacket potatoes and chicken. Click on the link to see the recipe. I thought the name was kind of cute and the recipe looks delicious, maybe it's worth a try huh?
9. Something found in the bathroom: Jill Sander bodylotion. I think it has been there for fifteen years, and I don't even like it. Maybe it's time to say goodbye to it.
10. A place: Joucas, it's a little village in the south of France near Gordes and Roussillon.
Click this link for a little virtual tour of this beautiful place.
It's certainly going to be on my visiting list this summer.
11. A reason for being late: just as I wanted to leave the house the phone rang.
12. Something you shout: Jeeeez!
13. A movie title: Jaws. One, two Three, Three D, you name 'm!
13. Something you drink: Juice
15. An animal: a jaguar
16. A song title: Just the way you are, by Billy Joel, or Barry White. I love both versions.
17. A verb: to jump

That's it from me today.
I'm breaking rule number five though.
While I love doing meme's, I don't mind BEING tagged but I hate to tag someone.
Feel free to pick it up if you feel like it, just let me know so I can visit you, okay?
