Meme from Crazy Aunt Purl!!!!

1) Total number of books in your house:

I don't know. There isn't very many thay I can see. I think Mommy and Daddy have some in boxes. Right now I would say I have more toys then we do books - unless golf and fashion magazines count....

2) The last book you bought was:

Well I have never bought I book. I do sneak into book stores in my bag with Mommy and no one knows I am there. She doesn't buy that many - wow and we haven't been in a long time. The last book might have been a greek play for a show she was designing - LAST SUMMER!!! Can you tell we do alot of reading here?

3)What was the last book you read before reading this?

Mommy tried to read 'fifth business' by Robertson Davies awhile ago. One problem. It is about a university professor. After Mommy's experience teaching last year (it wasn't the students, she loved the students she just doesn't like large groups of people listening to her lecture on about something she only read about the night before) she almost has a seizure when she starts reading it. Auntie Thyrza borrowed it to us. We aren't sure how to give it back to Auntie Thyrza without mentioning Mommy's problem.
The last book I personally has anything to do with was 20,000 years of Fashion. Mommy left it open on the floor. I discovered it made great digging material - I really liked the feel of that big thick book and all it's colored pages against my paws. I didn't actually get a hole in it but I managed to scratch up several pages... Then Mommy took it away - something about it being a $100 dollar book, who cares I am a $600 chihuahua....

4) Write down 5 (or 6) books you often read or that mean a lot to you.

Uhhhhmmmmm....Well Mommy and Daddy have some favourites. Geek Love is one they both like...
Mommy loves Haroun and the Sea of Stories and thinks everyone should read it. It is by Salman Rushdie and is not at all what you would think if you have only heard of the Satantic Verses.
Daddy likes golf books - he read a mulligan for Bobby Joe about 50 times. I am not reccomending this to anyone unless they can sit through hours of golf on tv....
I haven't read a book more then once.
I am partial to Modern Dog Magazine I just picture myself on the cover with some famous actor..... Sigh....

We spend most of our time reading on the internet around this family. Is that bad? Mommy buys art/costume and dog books like chihuahua's for Dummies (how appropriate)

5) Who are you going to pass the stick to (three people) and why?

Auntie Steph because she is always reading.... ALWAYS...
I don't know if Isa reads. Or that pooping cat....
Maybe I'll just pass it on to whoever. If there is a lonely puppy out there just dying to be tagged let me know and I will edit this post as though I tagged you in the first place. heh heh... by the way
Auntie Steph YOUR IT!!! now imagine me running away from you at full speed in your back yard! Zoommmmm!


  1. Minou - you're so funny. Zooooooom! You were hard to catch when you would run around my back yard like that. I think there must be something about that yard that makes doggies like to run. Pippin really likes running around back there too.
    I'll happily do your book meme! I love books! They're not just for digging in! But I can't do it right now. I was out at the market this morning (mmmm... chocolate raspberry croissants at Mary's Bread Basket and fresh o.j. from the "Those to These" stand)... and have been running the roads ever since. The house cleaning is calling me. xoxoxo

    Oh - I bought a little treat for you at the market!!!!!!!! EEEEEEEEH!

  2. Minou -- Tell your mommy that she now knows the secret of teachers everywhere, stay one nanosecond ahead of your students, but make them feel like the gulf of knowledge is enormous! Good teachers are fundamentally great actors.

    You are such a fashion plate, no wonder you went for 20,000 years of fashion, you were looking for a new outfit!

    How about a "Down with Mr. X" logo on your t-shirt? That would be fun to knit. I'll try and find a good toy pattern for you as well so that your mommy can join the knit-along!

  3. Minou,
    You should definitely be in Modern Dog Magazine. I picture you in Dog Fancy as well. You are meant for covergirl status, no doubt.

    Glad you liked the meme!!!
