Who are these people?

Posted by andrea tomkins in: Memes/blog awards etc

More memes!

I found this here, and a lot of other places I don’t remember.

If you played by the regular rules of this game you were supposed to do this:

Go to Google.
Type, “[Your name] needs”.
Note: it has to be in quotes! Then post the top five results.

Well, just because I like to do things a little differently I went to Google and typed “Andrea likes” instead, and this is what I got.

“Andrea likes the combination of a wood vanity and stone countertop with a white sink.”

“Andrea likes Pete a lot but seems above his desperate plays for her attention.”

“Andrea likes reading, writing and math. Her best subject is drawing and she loves to sing.”

“I believe Andrea likes sharp white cheddar cheese.”

“I think Andrea likes you Chuck”

“Andrea likes mint ice cream and has a pink bike.”

“Andrea likes to get together with her friends and family during the holidays to bake cookies, make cards, and have a really fun time.”

“… And don’t talk about the “Blue Note”. Andrea played there once at a weekend and it was terrible. It was not to be expected but Andrea likes Germany.”

“Andrea likes to sing, listen to Irish music, bike and bake brownies with Peggy.

She also likes to play with the dog, Sophie.”

“Andrea likes the Finnish way of life. “I like to spend time in the countryside and I have had the opportunity to visit Lapland, the area outside Turku, …”

(This last one is definitely true!)

  • K. Taggart: Yes! My family and I all get the flu shot every year. Why? Because we don't want the flu. We also don't want people we hang out with to get the flu. T
  • Claudette: The Globe article on the meal kit...it's interesting that no where does it mention that the convenience often, for many families, is directly related
  • Amy: I always make the bed, partly because my mom was a stickler for it growing up and partly because I make it easy to do. I have to have the sheets tuck
  • Donna: Thanks for this!! I am going to start this morning. One day at a time right.
  • Natalie Robichaud: I always make my bed. It's a small to do checked off the list and I like getting into a bed that's made at night. What SAD light do you use?
  • Jacquelyn: I've recently started vacuuming the kitchen and dining room floors every day. Previously, I would go weeks (!) between vacuumings. This was prompted
  • Jenn: I have made my bed every day all my life!!! The one day you are allowed to 'not' make your bed is your birthday and I'll admit that I have even made

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark. We have two daughters: Emma (19) and Sarah (17). I am the managing editor of our community newspaper, the Kitchissippi Times. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger, and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999... which makes me either a total dinosaur or a veteran, I'm not sure which! The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
