Tagged and Laughter

Carla "tagged" me and I'm delighted to play along.  I must answer the following questions and "tag" three other bloggers. 

1. If you could go back in time and re-live a moment, what would it be?
The first time I had a piece of my writing published in a national magazine.

2. If you could go back in time and change one thing, what would it be?
That my father didn't get Alzheimer's.

3. What movie/TV character do you most resemble in personality?

I guess it would have to be Amélie Poulain (played in the film by Audrey Tautou) a young woman who grew up isolated from other children. She develops an unusually active imagination to ward away the feelings of loneliness. She decides to change the lives of those around her for the better ...

4: If you could push one person off a cliff and get away with it, who would it be?

That would have to be a nasty neighbour of my relatives who has been the bane of their lives for years.

5. Name one habit that you want to change in yourself?
Worrying too much

6. Describe yourself in one word.

Kind (or so hubby tells me) apart from wanting to throw said nasty person off cliff!!

7. Describe the person who named you in this meme in one word.

8. Why do you blog? Answer in one sentence.
I love blogging, the comments, the friendships/support and being able to have my say and present my posts and writing creatively and finding others who share my interests who inspire, inform, amuse and entertain me.

9. Name three people to send this meme to and inform them.
