To meme or not to meme

My first meme question thingy. From http://samanthasaturday9.blogspot.com/:

1. Where would you go if you wanted to spark your creativity?
If the last couple of weeks are anything to go by, my laptop. Or, occasionally, marketing lectures.

2. What would be one thing that would embarrass you a great deal?
Dancing while sober.

3. What values did your parents instill in you?
Hmm. The standard ones, I guess. Apart from eat healthily, they kinda missed the boat on that one although they try their damndest to make up for it now.

4. What’s a fad of your teen years that you remember well?
Dude, my teen years only ended in late 2007. If we're talking earlier teens, um, maybe Ali G impressions? And then, later on, Borat impressions. And presumably pretty soon Bruno impressions.

5. What is your favorite breakfast?
Ah there's this M&S cereal, Apple and Cinnamon Crunch. I remember taking it round to a friend's place for some sort of breakfast party (this seemed less strange at the time) and her being shocked that it had "authentic cinnamon". Rather than "synthetic cinnamon". I dunno, she lived in Scotland for a long time if that explains anything.

6. What is the best birthday gift that you have received?
Probably my Sony Ericsson K800i. I am aware that one of my readers (my only one that I know of in fact) is in mourning for a beloved phone and this will be my second insensitive phone-related remark of the day, and I'm sorry for it. But it's true.

7. What gadget could you not live without?
Does a laptop count? I remember when the charger for this thing broke. The panic and stress levels that ensued, my god, I think I genuinely understood how new parents feel the first time their babies get the flu.

8. Do you collect anything?
Many years ago I collected the free toys from boxes of Frosties. Then I discovered Crunchy Nut. Now, if anything, pop culture-related t-shirts, although I don't know if this counts as a collection since do in fact wear them on a regular basis.

9. What website (non-blog) do you regularly visit?
Ignoring the standard answers of facebook, youtube and wikipedia? The football section of BBC Sport.

"Dancing while sober" would do me in as well. Great responses! Enjoy your day...
