Monday madness

Monday madness time, this week with a question by me!

1. From bev: Small town or big city?
Medium-sized city. I love visiting big cities, but I'm not sure I could live in one. Likewise, I'm not sure I could live in a small town; I'd get bored easily.

2. From turtlemoonwave: Do you have a favorite childhood memory, and if so, would you share it?
Um, I have several favourite childhood memories, but I'm not sure which one to talk about... I have one brother and two cousins, and our ages matched almost exactly those of the Pensevie children in The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. So we used to spend hours pretending we were in the book, acting out scenes from the BBC television series of the books. Good (albeit slightly nerdy!) times...

3. From cat: How do you calm down when something has really upset and/or angered you? Do you swallow it? Call a friend and rant? Go in the bathroom and cry? Punch a wall? Walk around muttering to yourself, complete with scary hand gestures?
I have been known to throw things - usually I manage not to hit anyone, although I have damaged a few walls in my time. Basically I do all of the things listed above, except maybe the 'swallow it' one; I'm not particularly good at just letting things go.

4. From dna princess: What attracts you to memes?
It's a low-impact way of updating my blog that doesn't require much actual thought!

5. From mads (that's me!!): How reliant are you on computers to get through your day?
Embarrassingly reliant. I guess I am an IT student, so I have a small excuse, but I get exceptionally twitchy if I'm away from a computer for a couple of days. I check my email a billion times in one day (it's usually the first thing I do in the morning), as well as my feeds in bloglines. I also couldn't do my job without computers, so I'm pretty reliant in that sense as well.

6. From tizzie: In a crisis, are you calm or do you panic?
I'm usually pretty calm, although maybe I'm just good at hiding my panic!

Hail, fellow thrower of stuff! I fessed up to throwing things occasionally, too (specifically pineapples). Good to know I'm not alone, and it reinforces my answer #4!

Hi Mads. I also grew up with several cousins within close age range. I have fond memories of our make believe playtimes.

I loved those books as a child. :) Just wonderful. :)

I'm the same way with cities - I prefer medium-sized ones. Nothing too big, or too small.

Happy Monday and have a good week. :)

"The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe" is one of my favorite books. It sounds like you and your brother and cousins had a lot of fun.
My answers are posted, I hope you will come by and comment.

Happy Monday! This is my first week doing this meme and so far it seems fun! Great answers! What a sweet family memory!

That sounds like such a great memory to have and so much fun.

Have a Happy!

I too am a thrower of stuff.....mainly phones, chairs and other BIG things.....I should be ashamed really!

It is good to know that I am not alone in throwing things. I guess it is a good stress reliever! :)

Jeez Mads, this blog of yours is becoming famous! I just thought I'd let you know that I think you should either change the 'tv quote of the week' to 'tv quote of the indefinite-but-usually-way-too long-a-time" OR put up a new quote! Just a suggestion!
Love Bron
PS. Have a Happy! (wtf?)
