That sneak, Jeanne (Cook Sister!), has tagged me for a meme. Not only has she said that I HAVE to do the meme, she has also given me the following piece of advice when she filled out her recent commenters’ meme questionaire:
Do a Beouwulf-themed parody post featuring eggs and toast. You know you want to
It’s true, of course. I do want to do Beouwulf-themed parody post featuring eggs and toast. But I haven’t yet finished reading Beouwulf. And naturally, it would be completely wrong to do a parody without having complete knowledge of the original.
But I can immediately do the first part of Jeanne’s formidible task. I don’t very often get directly to memes (I’m still working on Paz’ “10 photos” meme), but Jeanne said I HAVE to do it…

1. What is your favourite post from number 3′s blog?
Dee’s blog is relatively new to me. I first came across it by following a link to see her “Pear and Buckwheat Bread” post that she made for World Bread Day 2008. And I’m very glad to have found it. So far, my favourite post is The pie who loved me. Read it and you’ll see why. And no… I still haven’t made the pear bread (it is bookmarked).
2. Has number 10 taken any pictures that have moved you?
Piedro’s site is also new to me. There is a wonderful photo of salmon jumping upstream on his post about Ways To Cook Salmon but it appears he did not take the photo. I cannot tell whether Piedro has taken any of the photos on his posts, which seem to be amalgamations of many things on the internet.
3. Does number 6 reply to comments on their blog?
Kalyn is wonderful. I don’t know how she gets the time but she not only comments on posts that link to her blog but she often replies to comments in her own blog as well as posting beautiful photos and many delicious sounding recipes, not to mention the posts she writes for Blogher.
4. Which part of blogland is number 2 from?
I’m not certain, as the email address given is a gmail address, but I believe that Pat is from the USA.
5. If you could give one piece of advice to number 7 what would it be?
I know you’re more likely to make wholegrain breads, but make the banana cinnamon buns first! They’re fabulous.
6. Have you every tried something from number 9′s blog?
Yes! Several things! Tortas de Aceite, Semolina Bread with Fennel and Currants, Semolina Bread with Fennel and Currants, Grissini, the beautiful herb pattern on her Roasted Garlic Bread, not to mention that she put me on the right track to get our wild yeast to actually work. Susan even swayed me into getting a digital scale.
7. Has number 1 blogged something that inspired you?
Of course! It’s Jeanne’s (creator of EoMEoTE and WTSIM…)
fault influence that caused me to compose a sonnet for the first time in my life (I believe I wiggled out of it when I was in school; perhaps I had an urgent dentist’s appointment that day) and then a limerick when she decided to change the rules. And that was only near the beginning of Jeanne’s torment. It hasn’t been all bad though. It is because of her that I learned about the worthy cause Breadline Africa’s Worldwide Blogger Bake Off Challenge.
8. How often do you comment on number 4′s blog?
Not often enough. In fact, I’m ashamed to say that I don’t think I’ve been there since the Beautiful Bones Round-Up! Yikes. I’ll have to remedy that, won’t I, Susan? (As soon as I finish this, I’m off to Susan’s most recent post about Sage Mashed Sweet Potatoes with Caramelized Onion. Mmmmmm, doesn’t that sound good?!
9. Do you wait for number 8 to post excitedly?
I do. I love to see what bread I can try (and fail to make correctly) in order to become (or not) a Bread Baking Babe/Buddy.
10. How did number 5′s blog change your life?
I don’t even know if Gailann has a blog….
11. Do you know any of the 10 bloggers in person?
I have never met any of these people offline and away from the keyboard.
12. Do any of your 10 bloggers know each other in person?
I believe that Food Blogga Susan has met Kalyn at the Blogher conference(s).
13. Out of the 10, which updates more frequently?
Well, right now, Jeanne, because she’s participating in NaBloPoMo 2008. But in general, I’d say Kalyn is the most frequent updater.
14. Which of the 10 keep you laughing?
Dee, Jeanne, and Tanna.
15. Which of the 10 has made you cry (good or bad tears)?
Dee had me laughing so hard that I couldn’t see for the tears when I read her post about pie.
- List the Last 10 people who have commented on your blog.
- If you appear on my list, you are tagged and have to do this meme on your own blog too.
Oh dear! I usually refrain from tagging specific people for memes. I hope this won’t prevent people from commenting now.
edit 7 November: I should have said: if you have been tagged by me, of course you don’t HAVE to do anything about it. Only fill out the meme if you would like to!
Food?? You want food too? No photos, but last night I made the most wonderful pasta dish with beet tops, caramelized red onions, toasted pecans, dill seed and weed, chili flakes and a little garam masala all held together with a small amount of creamy chicken stock and then garnished with grated Swiss cheese. Who says that fast food is bad for us?
