Sunday Stealing: The Voice Post Meme

1) What's your middle name?
I don't have one.

2) How old are you?
That isn't a polite question to ask a lady hehe.

3) Where are you from? Are you living there right now?
I am from Trinidad, and yes, I am still living there.

4) Is it cold where you are?
Of course not - it's the tropics.

5) What's the time?

6) What are you wearing?
This is also not a polite question. I am wearing a dress.

7) What was the last thing you listened to?
I tried to listen to Hanson @ Bamboozle but I need to replace the headphones and I'm too lazy to get up.

8) What was the last thing you ate?
Soup. I do not know the name of it but it is a chinese soup with barley, dried cassava, nuts, roots and chicken.

9) What was the last thing you watched on TV?
The Adventures of Merlin on HBO.

10) What's your favorite tv show? Why?
I keep thinking that I've answered this question way too many times.

11) Quick! Find a book, or something with text on it! Flip to a random page and post the second paragraph's first sentence.
Gosh I have to get up to do this. I shall get the headphones while I'm at it... hehe.
"Soon a procession with Caesar at its head made its way down the street amid the sounds of drums, trumpets and cheering." It's from the Greatest Works of Shakespeare, which has his plays in a format that non-literature lovers can understand.

12) What was the last movie you saw? How was it?
I don't remember the last movie I saw. I'm sure I saw something last weekend on tv, but I can't remember what it was. Couldn't have been that good.

13) Do YOU think you have an accent? Where do people in your country do people speak with strong accents?
That is a silly phrased second question. I do not speak with an accent in my country but I sure as heck sound different from other folks - I've been told that I sing and speak really fast. This country is so small, yet there are accents depending on where you are from. Tobago has a different accent that sounds like there is Bajan in it. The folks in western Trinidad have a song in their voice, eastern Trinis sound like me, southern Trinis have a different song, and some rural Trinidadians speak a lot faster. It doesn't help that we speak English Creole and not standard English... unless you are stuffy upper class (or think you are) and insist on using the Queen's English alone.
