We've been tagged!

Jude from Apple Pie, Patis, Paté tagged us with this meme.

Last Movie I Saw In A Movie Theater?
[ts] The Dark Knight.
[js] The Dark Knight.

What Book Are You Reading?
[ts] I confess, this whole blogging thing has stolen time from reading. I don't remember the last book I read because they're all packed in boxes for the move. I like to look at my books to refresh my memory. I have left these titles out of boxes in the delusional hope that I will get to them before the move: Special Topics in Calamity Physics, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, We Are All the Same and The Witch of Portobello.

Favorite Board Game?
[ts] Haven't played any in a while. We invented a Monopoly-like game that used a Monopoly board and another board that we made. You can move from board to board via the railroads, but there was an exchange rate for the currencies, and etc etc etc. Hey, it was our brother's idea! ;D

Favorite Magazine?
[js] Random, whatever's available. I'm not committed to magazines these days.
[ts] It used to be Martha Stewart Living! Teehee. Don't really read any right now, except Gourmet and the occasional Maclean's.

Favorite Smells?
[ts] Sesame Oil. Lime. Leaves of a book.

Favorite Sounds?
[js] Sizzling sounds.

Worst Feeling In The World?
[js] Shame.

First Thing You Think of When You Wake?
[ts] Ugh. What time is it?

Favorite Fast Food Place?
[js] McDonalds. Still holds nostalgic value for me, although the food now sucks. Plus, you know how they're all E-V-I-L now. ;)

Future Child’s Name?

Finish This Statement—“If I Had a Lot of Money,”

Do You Drive Fast?
[ts] Normal-fast.

Do You Sleep With a Stuffed Animal?
[ts] No.

Storms—cool or scary?
[ts] Cool. Make that kEwL!!! The wind is my favorite.

What Was Your First Car?
[ts] I don't know. I drove what was there. We're the only family who don't care about cars, I think.

Favorite Drink?
[ts] Water.
[js] Cold water.

Finish This Statement—“If I Had the Time, I Would…”

One Nice Thing About The Person Who Sent This To You

What’s Under Your Bed?

Would You Like to Be Born As Yourself Again?
