Meme again

Barbara has "challenged" me to a meme. Challenge accepted *G*

Here are the rules: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?

Hmmm... this is a difficult one since most of my recent reads have been murder mysteries and I can't recommend those unless you're really into that genre. However here are some books I have enjoyed in the past and would re-read again. Alexandre Dumas' The Count of Monte Cristo. Neal Stephenson's Snow Crash and The Diamond Age. Umberto Eco's The Name of the Rose. Albert Camus' The Fall.

What food totally grosses you out, you'd never be able to touch it? Ew. Gag.*hurl*

I'm normally open to trying new foods, and I have no problems eating some foods which many people may find too exotic or unappetizing. I draw the line at insects and the like.

Aeons ago when I was having lunch at a restaurant in China (sorry, I can't remember the name of the city), one dish served looked like eggs scrambled with something else. Someone at the table told me that it was the specialty in the area. That something else in the dish turned out to be bees! Um, that was definitely NOT for me. I did not touch that dish at all. I am not interested in consuming insects, arachnids, or anything similar.

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?

I'm not really into horror movies.

Is there a song that makes you dance every time you hear it? Would you tap you feet and sing along to it in public?

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

Nope, no tats.

When's the last time you laughed so hard your ribs ached and/or you nearly peed yourself? What made you do it?

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

Oh gosh, I couldn't draw a straight line to save my life. But I guess I'm off the hook since I don't have any pets right now.

Go through a stack or box of your old music. Stuff that you may not have heard in years. Pick one and tell us about it. Is it as good (or as bad) as you remember?

Most of my music is packed away in boxes. We've converted most of the CDs to MP3. Most of the records have been thrown out, but I do have a box of 7" singles containing mostly 80s music. I've been meaning to throw this box out. I don't even have a record player anymore so there really isn't much point to keeping them. Anyhow I pulled out this single from the box. It's "Do They Know It's Christmas?" and when I turned it over, I saw it dated 1984. Oh my, has it been that long? I still like this song even if it's not very popular these days. I don't even think they play it much on the radio during Christmastime.

I kinda miss all the cool artwork on the covers of vinyl records, particularly the 12" ones.

Do you still sleep with a stuffed animal? We won't laugh!

Nope, but I still have a bunch of my stuffed animals in a box. Some went to Miss M. She's not getting Tux though; he's mine.

Tux, the Linux penguin

Lovin' that Tux critter!

BTW, I am a big fan of murder mysteries, so which authors are you currently enjoying? Have you tried Deborah Crombie's books? Great characters, typical British police procedurals.
