I'm a simple girl with a li'l dream, of seeing her humble works in exquisite print, to share with all who feels for words, written with
an unsupressable urge. So indugle in my fantasies, and plow your way through my memories, greatly appreciated you will be,
if you can leave your comments here for me.

Thanx for you comment on my site. A good MEME I must say! Keep it up!

Richard said...

These self-revealing memes are always fascinating - an interesting way to learn more about someone.

Hmmm ... I don't think I know the complete lyrics of even one song.

how about.. 5 places you enjoy hanging out at? and 3 jobs you would take up if you had the skills required?

Aristocrat said...

You had better include a full-time poet as well.:p Where is your poetry???!?!? It's been ages -_-"

And very beautiful cartoons (as usual) by the way.

Elvina aka LaoNiang said...

Eray: Thanks for visiting mine too! Hope you will drop by often. :)

Richard: Yes indeed it is! Maybe you can do one on your blog? I have yet to know much about u!

Juz A Gal: Your wish is my command! Check the latest update on the same post. I have added the two questions. :)

Aristocrat: So sorry. I have been so overwhelmed with work that I do not have time to write my poetry. Just finished a major project that I have been working on for the last 9 months. Finally got a chance to take a break..... maybe when the inspiration strikes.... :)

Spellbound: ThanKs! maybe you should do one too!

A very interesting meme (: memes always tend to reveal something a little more personal about the author, except a lot of people receive standard memes by emails or Friendster noticeboards, so much so that we either end up giving standard answers, or, like me, ignore them totally. >< haha

Thanks for your comment on my blog, it's really sweet of you. *Grins* Anyway, how did you come across my blog? I don't remember leaving comments or tags ya?

This is my first time commenting here, I believe, ha. I really enjoy reading your posts, they are "berry berry" addictive (:

Have a good week ahead!

Mizore said...

Hey Elvina!

I enjoy reading your blog, and I find you have a beautiful way with words, which makes reading your entries an enjoyable pastime.

The original drawings are a real treat too! Keep 'em coming please!

P.S: thanks for dropping by ;)

Richard said...

All you need to know about me, Elvina, is that I am me.

When I was younger and people used to ask me about myself, I would just say "I am".

For a while I lost that sense of self. Slowly, it seems to be coming back.

Maybe I will do the meme.

Matt said...

Great Answers :)

It's My Life - Bon Jovi Is one of my favorites.

mel said...

Aw man, give me Kino over Borders any day….just find Borders so messy and the staff aren’t that knowledgeable either. Glad you like the Neil Gaiman stuff, now if you’ll only listen to me bout the jap author Junichiro Tanizaki…heh

Righteous said...

Long time since I commented in your blog. I was having war with the annoymous prick, thus being late to read your updates.

Ben Tan said...

Elvina aka LaoNiang said...

Ben: For my "hates" or "dislikes", check out this post - http://elvina33.blogspot.com/2005/11/things-that-dont-impress-me.html

For my "loves" or "likes" - here's the link: http://elvina33.blogspot.com/2005/10/things-that-make-me-happy.html

Elvina aka LaoNiang said...

Merryfeet: Thanks for your comments. :) Glad to know that you enjoy reading my blog. I came across your blog when I was searching through Technorati to see which bloggers have linked my blog to theirs, and yours popped up! So you see, there are NO secrets in the cyber world! haha..

Mizore: Hi Mizore! Thanks for the compliments. It's wonderful to know that my simple entries can make such good reading. As for the drawings, sorry to disappoint you - I am not the artist. I took most of the pictures from deviantart.com.

Richard: I am What I Am too. But if you don't reveal to others what you are, we will never know, would we? So yes, maybe the meme would help!

Matt: I love rock - anytime!

Mel: Ahhhhhh...tell me more about Junichiro Tanizaki!!!! Any samples for me to read?

Starlandliu: Hope you are ok. Read about your ordeal on your blog. Take care dude... and stay focused. Ignore the rest of the losers. They are really not worth a second of your time.

Booker said...

suspiciousbastard said...

Is it really safe to reveal so much about oneself?

Elvina aka LaoNiang said...

well, as long as my answers are clean and I am not distributing any sexual content, it's not really a big deal. so no need to worry. :)

sonic said...
