My Life According To...

As soon as the gorgeous Tami from Mummy Of Two invited me to take part in this meme I knew it was a challenge worth facing as music is a real passion of mine. I don't pay attention as much as I used to, but we always have music in the house and most of the children can bash out a tune on one instrument or another.

It's really simple - answer a set of questions using song titles from a band or artist. Tami chose Pulp and had some terrific answers, including describing her partner as 'Master Of The Universe'. The only tricky bit is choosing the artist(s)....

Initially I chose The Cure because with a back catalogue of 28 albums there was an awful lot of choice, but it's kind of cheating. It also occurred to me that if I chose The Stone Roses it would be hilarious to have 'I am the resurrection' or 'I want to be adored' for  question 2 or 3, but I'll just leave that one to chuckle to myself about. I also considered umpteen others, but in the end I've settled for Bjork/The Sugarcubes....

 Your motto…?
 Your favourite form of transport…
The Comet Song
How you feel…?

 Your favourite colour is…?
If you could change your name, what would it be…?

Apologies to my partner that I couldn't find a description as superheroic as Pulp provided for Tami!

To carry on the meme I have chosen 3 bloggers who I think will enjoy the challenge - but if you don't want to do it right now, that's fine too...

Tina from The Soup Dragon Says
Sim from Sims Life Blog


  1. Fabulous - I love it! You are right Pulp did provide me with some great answers, not sure if the OH has read it as he hasn't commented, either that or he doesn't think Master of the Universe is a good enough title for him! Love the answer for your best piece of advice, can't imagine you as an Isobel though :-) Glad you enjoyed taking part!

    1. Hahahaha... I can't imagine me as an Isobel either, but she doesn't really do songs with potential names in and I didn't fancy being called Hunter! :D
      Glad you liked the answers and thank you for inviting me to take part :)

    2. I think you are definitely more a Hunter! You can come and join me as Seductive Barry :)

    3. Seductive Barry is brilliant, but I'm not convinced about Hunter! There was an awful bloke in Gladiators called Hunter!

  2. Love it. Great choice of band too.

  3. Your partner deep down know that he is your superhero!

    1. :D I'm sure he'd agree! He certainly seems to think I'm superwoman most of the time! :D

  4. I dont know any of these songs! I only knew a few of tami's too!

    1. Anna - you need educating...check out Bjork video's on You Tube, you'll love them and so will the kids. I have a DVD and my children love it :)

    2. We need to sort you out with a festiva Anna! Maybe that can be our Playfest meetup :)

    3. Play festival! I like it, we should put the idea to the boss ;)

  5. Some great answers - what a fun read!

  6. Some great answers! What a fun meme!

    1. It really is a great one, I had real fun doing it :D

  7. This looks like fun, I am not so sure my musical tastes will live up to your high standard, but the thought of you other half as venus as a boy made me smile!

    1. I'm sure your musical tastes will be of an excellent standard - music is very much subjective anyway, so no-one can really judge anyone else for their taste, we can only agree or disagree ;)

      Really glad you are happy to take part, and also glad I made you smile - he hasn't seen it yet :D

  8. I love this meme, although it must take forever to come up with all those answers!

    1. It really doesn't. Once you've decided on your band and have the discography there in front of you, you're away... :D
      I wish I could have read this earlier, I really considered asking you but I wondered if you get annoyed by meme's all the time! :D

  9. This is fab - I bet a REAL challenge though! Need to be creative!


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I read every one and try my best to reply!
