My friend SaRi tagged me to do this meme. (What actually is a meme?) I never have done one, but I enjoy the ones done by others.

Rules * Answer at least three of the questions. Yes, I know a few look time-consuming and there are several of them. That's why I only ask for three. See? I'm nice! * Post them and the rules on your blog, and please link back to me here. Pretty please *^_^* ? * Comment here telling me and the rest of our little party where you're at and link to yourself. That's all! * Oh yeah, don't forget to tag others!

What's the last book you read that you thought was really super, inspiring, you'd recommend it to most anyone?
Chimananda Ngozi Adichie, Half of a Yellow Sun. I’m reading it now, and it is really good. Other than that, I have mostly been reading trashy novels lately. I am about to reread "The Mill on the Floss," and that is one of my favorites ever.

What food totally grosses you out, you'd never be able to touch it?
I’m a vegetarian, so any carrion flesh would qualify. Of the things I’m more likely to confront, definitely Lima beans!

Did you ever watch a scary movie that frightened you so much you were afraid of the dark afterward? I mean like you're lying in bed trying to sleep, but you have to pee, but you're scared to get up. It doesn't have to be recently; could be when you were a kid. So what movie was it?
The Wizard of Oz scared me pretty badly when I was a wee one. More recently, I had to leave Repulsion because I was so frightened.

Is there a song that makes you dance every time you hear it? Would you tap your feet and sing along to it in public?
Wir eilen mit schwachen doch emisgen Schritten” from Bach’s Cantata “Jesu, der du meine Seele.” Click here to hear it. Probably the only time I would hear this in public would be at a concert, and I definitely would not sing along. I would be ousted. I do, however, sing along in my car. The other day, I was fetching Tom and we were trapped in a terrible baseball game traffic jam. It was hot, and nothing was moving. We were both hungry, tired, frustrated and gererally sad. This wonderful duet came on and I said, ”This will make us feel better!” And it did.

Tattoos: yes or no? Do you have any? Tell us! Do you think they're gross? TELL US!
Ugh! No Way!

When's the last time you laughed so hard your ribs ached and/or you nearly peed yourself? What made you do it?
When singing “Ring of Fire” with Rebecca. That is not the last time, as it was quite a while ago, but it is what comes to mind. “Why”, you ask? Well, it’s too long to tell.

Draw or doodle a picture of your pet(s) and post it if possible. Nothing fancy, don't be shy.

Do you still sleep with a stuffed animal? We won't laugh!
I don't need a stuffed animal, as I have those two live ones to cuddle at night.

There! That is, no doubt, more than you ever wanted to know.

The only one I know with a blog is Sabine, who tagged me, so I will tag Petra whose blog I read.

Hi, Joanna! How are you? Thanks so very much for visiting and playing our meme! Oh, your fur-babes are so sweet; what a great photo. Believe it or not, the Wizard of Oz also startled me as a child - sometimes, it still does! I really love your site. It's nice to know I'm not the only veggie out there LOL! See you soon!

So complicated Joanna, you must be at home sick with extra time on your hands. :-)
