Meme Wednesday

Delectable Hendrix tagged me for the ' About Me' Meme. As you know, I never tire of talking about myself so I am delighted to participate!

The rules of the game get posted at the beginning. Each player answers the questions about themselves. At the end of the post,the player than tags 4 or 5 people and post their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves a comment, letting them know that they have been tagged and asking them to read your blog. Let the person who tagged you know when you have posted your answer.

1.What was I doing 10 years ago? – I wasn't yet born but I have a strong suspicion that I was conversing with Bast on all things important. i.e me.

2.What are the 5 things on my to do list for today: 1)Yowl at the human for at least an hour until I get fed. 2) Eat my boring cat food that the human insists on feeding me, now that she is in debt and can't afford to buy me steak! The indignity of it! 3)Go to great lengths to avoid Baby Mao. This will entail hiding in elaborate places. 4) Try on my new kung fu outfit. Oh, didn't I tell you? I have taken up Martial arts. 5) Practice my stretching so that I can improve my kung fu bunnykicks.

3. Snacks I enjoy – Steak. Sardines. Roast chicken.

4. Things I would do if I were a billionaire – Move to a luxury palace far far away from the human and Baby Mao. Hire Gordon Ramsey as my personal chef and Derren Brown for entertainment.

5. Three of my bad habits: Well, I think we all know that my worst habit is my self effacing shyness. I am working on a daily basis to overcome this impediment. Oh, my self deprecating manner is another bad habit of mine. Trust me, I am working on it.

6. Five places I have lived: The palace in which I was born. The hovel I moved into with the human. Oh, and another hovel with stairs that we moved to six months ago.

7. Five jobs I have had: I will never, EVER work! That said, it is a constant job training the human. I work tirelessly for this futile mission.

I would like to tag the following kitties:

Storm the Furry Fighter
The Cat Realm
Chairman Mao

Ta ta for now, darlings!

I'm still trying to stop laughing over your self-deprecating manner (#5). This is definitely something you need to overcome! :)

Zippy, Sadie, Speedy and M'Gee said...

The Cat Realm said...

Wonderful answers!!! And you are so brave to admit to your shyness and the self-deprecating manner - not every cat would have the royal grandeur to admit to such things!!!!
Bravo, Yao-Lin!
And thank you for tagging us - we will try our best to squeeze it in during these hectic days in preparation for the event of the season!!!

Anita said...

Hi Yao Lin!

Already you can know the reason of my anger! Muahahahaha!


Daisy said...

Ah, Gordon Ramsey would be excellent as your personal chef!

Yao-Lin, I hope one of these days you will come out of your shell and stop being so shy and retiring.

Gemini and Ichiro said...

Yao-lin, you have listed only two bad habits. I believe your ability to overlook the irritating mannerisms of others would be a third one you might want to consider over coming--you are so forgiving you know.

Karl and Ruis said...

yao-lin - we just sent you an important email! check your SPAM of it is not there...

Things I would do if I were a billionaire !! I can't agree with you anymore!!! I wish your wishes could come true!

lordjaders said...

Yourrr Highness,
It has been such a long time--howeverrr, tag me forrr a Meme in June and I shall entice yourrr currriosity with such tales of valourrr, woes, and make you wonderrr how many of my 9 lives do I rrreally have?
My lady bean was shopping in a storrre when she hearrrd the song you had on the bloggie..."My life is brrrilliant..." she was so sad she didn't have interrrnet, but now we do again because we moved!
Purrrs to you and the little

Dragonheart, Merlin, Devi, and Chloe said...

Fabulous meme, Yao-lin! It is good that you recognize your bad habits and are working on them. ;)

Goldie, Shade and Banshee said...

Very funny!!!!

I think the politically correct term is "slow to warm up" as opposed to shy. You wouldn't want a label hanging around your neck for years to come. Ha Ha.

Well, maybe "king".

The Fluffy Tribe said...

Figaro the Therapy Cat said...

Isis said...

Oh yer you have it so bad Yao-lin, I just don't know how you cope with it all! I'm sure you need to work harder on your shyness issues and the like, I mean we don't want you hiding your light under anything strange...

Oh and I hear that you've got Lizards on your Island, so we're trying to get Mummy to move our cat run and garden to there so we too can have fun with lizards like Daisy Cat! :)

Sunny's Mommy said...

You've taken up kung fu? That's excellent. It should be very effective on Baby Mao!

Queen Snickers, Empress and Princess Renna said...

Wonderful picture! Sorry your not having steak. :( You could always do what I do and yack up every time you get kibble in the evening so you mum HAS to get you what you want! ~Queen Snickers

Unknown said...

Yao-lin, I am glad that you are working on your shyness and your self-deprecating manner - poor you, it must be hard not to have any self confidence.

P.S. you should insist that your human slave help you blog more often, I miss reading about your adventures each and EVERY day.

The Furry Fighter said...

hello my handsome Yao-Lin

thank you so so much for sponsoring me...i know times are a bit hard for us all and stuff (I saw that you have been deprived of steak) so we really appreciate it very much. i will try to do the meme this weekend - i owe Tamra Maew one too!

i had a good night last night - i didn't moan or groan and slept well - i also ate my breakfast as soon as i woke up this morning. but we'll just have to see i my body will let me recover, there is no denying i have turned into a bag of (beautiful) bones in a matter of weeks.

thank you again Yao-Lin, i adore you too and realise just how much you have comprised your regalness by pouring out affection towards me - publicly! not like our Royal Family in the UK are you? :)

ps - Baby Poo looks a bit threatening just over your shoulder careful, he may want to become Alpha Cat!

Parker said...

The first step to getting over your shyness is to admit you have a problem. Nice work Yao!

Black Cat said...

Oh Yao-Lin, I love your meme; I can't stop laughing! :) xxx
