Three things

To relieve my boredom - a meme!

Three things that scare you:
1. Elevators
2. Being buried alive
3. Failure

Three of your everyday essentials:
1. Sleep
2. Internet access
3. Shampoo and conditioner

Three things you are wearing right now:
1. Stripy socks
2. A new haircut
3. New black cardigan

Three of your favorite drinks:
1. Irish breakfast tea
2. Lemon lime and bitters
3. Gin and tonic

Three of your favorite songs (at the moment):
1. 'Wonderful Tonight', by Eric Clapton
2. 'Gold Digger', by Kanye West (I know this is slightly daggy, but I don't care: this is one hell of a catchy tune)
3. 'Teach Me Tonight', Dinah Washington (the bargain bin at JB Hi-Fi a few weeks ago yielded this great CD called 'The Ladies & The Blues' for only $4. In addition to this great track by Dinah Washington, there's also a wonderful version of 'A Tisket, A Tasket' by Ella Fitzgerald. Top stuff.)

Three things you want in a relationship (other than real love):
1. Humour
2. Respect
3. Intelligence

Two truths and a lie:
1. There's a fish on my desk
2. It's possible I've broken my foot somehow without realising it
3. The fish is dead

Three of your favorite hobbies:
1. Surfing the Internets
2. Origami
3. Watching tv
(I am so hard-core, people)

Three things you want really badly right now:
1. To have all my chapter summaries for Information Systems Management done. Arrrgghhh the pain of this textbook!
2. The chocolate in the package my parents allegedly sent me.
3. New West Wing.

Three places you want to go on holiday:
1. Eastern Canada
2. Kenya (I'm currently reading The Flame Trees of Thika by Elspeth Huxley, and I have this strong longing to see the area where my mother grew up)
3. Washington, D.C.

Three things you want to do before you die:
1. Take the Trans-Siberian Railway all the way from Russia to the Pacific
2. Live and work in another country where I don't know anyone.
3. Get paid to watch television (hey, a girl can dream!)

Three ways you are stereotypically a chick:
1. I enjoy shopping (but only on my own, which I guess is not all that stereotypically 'chicky')
2. I like throw cushions.
3. Breasts.

Three things you don't understand:
1. Programming
2. The attraction of international relations theory
3. The stockmarket

Three things you can't do:
1. Programming
2. Anything involving a medium- to high-level of hand-eye coordination
3. Watch 'A Current Affair'

Three things that annoy you:
1. Girls who wear t-shirts with 'girl power' slogans, but who then allow men to walk all over them. Also, girls who think 'feminist' is a dirty word.
2. Books that I need not being on short-reserve at the library.
3. People who don't reply to my emails.

Three things on your desk:
1. Puzzle, three-quarters finished (just the damn sky to go!)
2. Framed photo of my Canadian host sisters.
3. Kettle.
