No winner yet...

Eek, I went to check who was the winner of the Zira stamp contest and there was a tie. Since I didn't want to decide who would win, I'm going to leave the polls open until midnight tonight in hopes that someone else will make the decision for me.

In case you haven't noticed, I rarely if ever respond to memes. Maybe that's why people don't comment. I guess I'm not always quick to do what's trendy if my heart isn't in it. However, this most recent meme that I found through Jennifer's comment on my blog yesterday (BTW, I think that the guinea girls are more like "sipping girlie drinks under the umbrellas kinda piggies") looked so fun that I HAD to jump in. Plus I'm trying to distract you from the fact that there's no new knitting content to be seen today. I must admit that as I searched on google, some of the images were racy or disturbing. Be forwarned when you start googling for yourself. Here goes:

The place I grew up:

Norfolk, Virginia


Chesapeake, Virginia (okay, so Alonzo Mourning ISN'T Chesapeake but we went to the same high school in Chesapeake, I had a locker next to him and he hit on me once)

The place I live now:

Salem, VA

My name:

Tanya - pronounced Northern Style not Southern Style

My grandmother's names:

Hazel - I choose Witch Hazel because my mom calls the two of us witches after we did some wicked cool stuff with a ouija board once.



My favorite food:

Buttercream Icing - I love me some buttercream icing. However, I haven't had any in AGES :(


Bacon (look up bacon images at google and check out the third one. Very interesting indeed.)

My favorite drinks:




My favorite songs:

Hold Back the Rain - Duran Duran


Dreaming Tree - Dave Matthews Band


Killing Me Softly - The Fugees

Funeral song:

Let it be - The Beatles

Favorite smells:

fresh ground coffee before its brewed


Unsmoked cherry tobacco - reminds me of my grampa

Most hated smell:

Chronic halitosis aka bad breath


Skunks in the summer

Favorite shoes:

Barefoot - I know that it's against the laws of nature but I hate wearing shoes

What I wanna be when I grow up:

Oprah - not for the fame, not for the money, not for the body transformation though heaven knows that would be FABO but for the ability to make a positive change in the world.

I'm not going to tag anyone (creates too much pressure in my opinion) but if you post about this meme, slip me a comment as I'd love to see your photos.

Northern and Southern pronounciations of "Tanya". Really? Here in Canada, to be named Tanya is difficult (my cousin is one). She's a Tan-ya (like a suntan). But is always getting called Ton-ya. We don't have the regional accents Americans do so we can't differentiate....which is which?

I tend to be called TAN-ya (like suntan) by more southerners than northerners I guess because of Country singers like Tanya Tucker. Got me in a lot of trouble in school when several teachers refused to pronounce my name Tawn-ya and my mom told me that I didn't have to answer - LOL!

I grew up not too, too far from you.

I love the smell of coffee too but can't drink it.

Thanks for sharing your list and pictures.
