Meme Alert!...

I've seen this one going around for a while and Desert Cat
has included me in his tagging. The policy for this one is to
post the rules first, so...

1. Post the rules for the meme at the beginning of your post.
2. This meme consists of the blogger listing eight random
facts/habits about themselves.
3. People who are tagged in this post are to write their own
post listing their own eight random items and list the rules.
4. At the end of the post/meme, list the folks you are tagging
and leave them notice of such in their comments.


1. I love going barefoot and hate wearing socks.
(Does this count as two things?) Socks drive me crazy, make my
feet itchy, and leave funny marks on my legs. The only time I can
deal with wearing socks is when I go to the gym, and I haven't
done that in about five years.
First thing I do when I get home is kick off my shoes.

2. I will search a map for alternate routes in order to avoid driving
on interstates. I much prefer two-lane roads through small towns
at a leisurely pace. I don't care if it takes longer. When it happens
that I cannot avoid the multi-lane madhouses, I am nearly in tears.

3. High school graduating class 1969 (shut up, youngsters!) ....
I was voted "Most Courteous". I really wanted "Best Dressed".
I don't often fit the courteous label any more. In real life.

4. Another high school item, same year... boyfriend, at the time,
and I were voted "Sweetheart King and Queen". (Stop gagging!)

5. My birthday makes me a Pisces. So, why can't I swim?
OK, the boobs help keep me afloat, but that isn't swimming.

6. I do not have a favorite food. I like many. A lot. Unfortunately.

7. I do not have a favorite color. I like them all. But, my favorite kind
of photography is black and white. Love the details in contrast.

8. Has been several years since anyone, other than myself of course,
has been in my house. Lots of reasons. Perhaps future blog fodder.
Don't ask.

Now for the tagging............ (plus anyone who just wants to)...

Aspergantus, Kudzu, Boneman, Alan, Corby, Irrelephant,
and a new blogger TheBottomOfTheSwamp.
I will include Sparrow, as soon as she gets her blog going.


Irrelephant said...

BLAST! *lol*

Okay, I swear on my mother's girdle I shall address this meme... er... soonest. Honest!

Winston said...

Very interesting list! Much more so than when I did it a couple of weeks back. It has grown since then when it was only 7 items...

I'm not asking, but No. 8 is intriguing. Trying to figure out the possible connection between that and No. 5. Gotta be one... You got an indoor pool?

Jean said...

Irrelephant - ha... you're a good sport!

Winston - hehehe...sweet man, no pool of any sort.

Hammer said...

I wish I could keep certain people out of my house.

Interesting stuff.

The Bottom Of The Swamp said...

I shall get right on this. It'll be tough to narrow it down to only 8.

Jean said...

tbots - no reason why you can't do more than eight. (thanks)

Sparrow said...

Pre-tagged? Is that LEGAL??

My problem will be finding 8 other bloggers to whom I can pass it who haven't already been tagged. I'll have to resort to making people up.

Jean said...

Hammer - there are ways. being single helps.

Sparrow - heh. Couldn't we call it 'pre-planning'?
I know, the list is getting thin.

boneman said...

It WAS in August.
And, near as I can tell, you din't reply to the tag, but then were trying to bury the dead guy again.

(the begger keeps crawlin' out'a his hole in the ground.)

So, I reckon that makes for a pretty good excuse.
Better than m'Sis and Nea, at least.
But, like I said in m'blog, Nea puts so many pretty pix in her blogs, I can't condemn her not writing some sentences out of some book.
And it looks like Sis was gone for part of the month.

But, in any case, I did post as tagged.

The Bottom Of The Swamp said...

Ok, I did it.

Anonymous said...

.... years since anyone has been in your house?.... my goodness....


AspergantuS said...

ok... the deed is done. I hope you are happy. When do I get my tattoo?

Jean said...

Berry - thank you!

tbots - thank you!

Eric - yep.

Mick - I am ecstatic!
(whatthehell are ya talkin' about, tattoo??)

AspergantuS said...

Well... I'm not pregnant, as far as you know, so there must be a tattoo involved... something that says I've been "Memed." A patch to put on my Jacket, a pin maybe... You tell me... I'm still trying to figure this "Meme" thing out...

Doom said...

Hmm, I have a friend or three like you, then. Their home is their, sanctuary, is it? They are not recluses, it's an odd form of it though I think? *grins* I have found a way to sneak into two of them, with permission and in attendance, of course. And, I am a perfect gentleman, no odd reason to be there, it was just neat to say I had been there. Actually, I am about as sneaky as a rock, so I guess that isn't how to say it. The last even offered a (if organic) popsicle, coconut, pretty good too.

Uhm, where are you? I hope you are ok. If it was just my place you had stopped seeming to visit, I would just realize I had finally said the wrong thing, again. *laughs* Be well.

boneman said... When are y'gonna do yer tag?
I'm assuming (not usually a good idea) you don't understand what I'm saying to you, do you?

Go back to August 2006...somewhere around the fourth.

boneman said...

Look what /t helped me do!

and meet

well....actually, still boneman.
but, at least I have a face to go along with it....

er.....well.... sort'a

B.C. said...

You said "boobs"...

Mmmmmmmmm.......... 'Nuff sed.

Jean said...

Mick - ya know... maybe a tattoo would be a good idea. It could say, "I've been memed." heh.

Doom - getting more reclusive as I get older. I'll be by to visit soon. You have not "said the wrong thing." :)

Berry - ok, I'll go look soon.
Cool beans on the icon!!

b.c. - figgered you'd pick up on that *snicker*.

k said...

I just HATE socks! Ick ick ick I HATE them!

Jean said...

sparrow said...

Done! It's here:

Jean, I was just thinking of Alan & revisiting some of my favourite posts on This Moment...I came across the memething you set him in July, was funny, he was so full of life,I cannot believe he is gone. Anyway I clicked on your name & your memething came up, I enjoyed it & it brought a smile to my face. I have the same problem with my ample boobs, I would never drown as they act like buoys, problem is they hinder my swimming & diving, I keep getting thrown onto my back. Ha ha its a sight to behold. I get quite a kick out of your blog, your humour & I love your poems.

Jean said...

Dianne, thank you so much!
I'm glad you are visiting here. Been wondering who my new Aussie visitor was : )
