Actually, I'm just feeling profoundly uncreative and tired. So I'm doing memes and quizzes today. My apologies for the Bach-less posts of the last few days. I promise, I'll write more on Bach soon.
If you do this meme, please do let me know in the comments so I can go read your replies!

2. WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE ARTICLES OF CLOTHING? My crazy purple gypsy skirts.
3. THE LAST CDs YOU BOUGHT? It was a Goldberg Variations CD that recently came out, but I can't remember who was playing them.

5. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE KITCHEN APPLIANCE? The dishwasher.
6. IF YOU COULD PLAY AN INSTRUMENT, WHAT WOULD IT BE? I do play an instrument. But if I could play a second instrument, it would be the oboe.
7. FAVORITE COLOR? Purple, purple, purple. No, I'm not a 14-year-old girl. But I still love purple.
8. WHICH VEHICLE DO YOU PREFER, SPORTS CAR, MOTORCYCLE, OR SUV? What about van? I prefer vans. Not mini-vans. Big vans. After that, I like trucks. So don't ask me why I drive a Neon.

18. WHICH DO YOU PREFER, SUSHI OR HAMBURGER? The sushi restaurant downtown has these really good vegetarian rolls, and I like them a lot better than hamburger. But I don' t like meat sushi.

20. ON WHICH BLOG DID YOU FIND THIS MEME? Terminal Degree
21. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE FLOWER? Irises, with violets running a close second.
23. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE MEAL? I don't know. I love salmon served with asparagus spears. Then again, my favorite "eat-out" meal of late is "The Nantahala" at Nick & Nate's in western NC, which is a pizza with olive-oil glaze (?), garlic, spinach, sun-dried tomatoes, and oregano. Mmmm.
