Getting to know you meme

It's been a while since I've done one of these. I saw this meme doing the rounds on Facebook yesterday, had a few minutes free, so copied and pasted here.

Getting to know Café Chick:
  1. What time did you get up this morning? The alarm went off at 6:40 am, the usual time for a work day.
  2. How do you like your steak? Medium-rare. Don't bring it to me if it's overcooked!
  3. What was the last film you saw at the cinema? Inception (2010). Loved it.
  4. What is your favourite TV show? It was Outrageous Fortune but I'll have to find another one now that the Wests have packed up for good.
  5. If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be? Probably still New Zealand.
  6. What did you have for breakfast? Breakfast?
  7. What is your favourite cuisine? Italian.
  8. What foods do you dislike? Capsicums. Euw!
  9. Favourite place to eat? I don't have one in particular, but I'm pretty fussy ... if it starts with 'food' and ends with 'court', you won't find me there (except to buy sushi).
  10. Favourite dressing? Does chocolate sauce count as a dressing?
  11. What kind of vehicle do you drive? A silver one. (Ford Laser sedan.)
  12. What are your favourite clothes? Pretty summer dresses. I don't wear them much these days.
  13. Where would you visit if you had the chance? Europe.
  14. Cup 1/2 empty or 1/2 full? I try to make it half full but some days are easier than others ...
  15. Where would you want to retire? Somewhere by the sea.
  16. Favourite time of day? It used to be after midnight but now I'd say mid-afternoon on a sunny day.
  17. Where were you born? Wellington.
  18. What is your favourite sport to watch? I don't really have one ...
  19. Who do you think will not tag you back? Well, I haven't actually 'tagged' anyone to do this meme but somebody might pick it up and put it on their own blog.
  20. Person you expect to tag you back first? See above.
  21. Who are you most curious about their responses to this? Anyone. :-)
  22. Bird watcher? Yep, I love them!

  24. Pets? None of my own but my sweetie has a cat called Zed.
  25. Any new and exciting news that you'd like to share? Umm, watch this space.
  26. What did you want to be when you were little? A teacher. (And I was.)

  30. Always wear your seat belt? Absolutely.
  31. Been in a car accident? A couple of minor dings but nothing that would qualify as a crash.
  32. Any pet peeves? Soooo many! For starters, see this post. Add to that: supermarket or retail staff who greet you by asking "are you ok?". Yes, I'm fine, thanks. However, you could help me ... oh, and don't call me "ma'am" - I'm not as old as you seem to think.
