Meme Shmeme

I've been tagged.
Thank you Cairo Typo at Wandering the World for giving me this award. I met Ms. TypO just a few short weeks ago near the beginning of this NaBloPoMo insanity. She will go down in history as the second person to post a comment on my blog and has since given me unexpected support, inspiration, and laughs. When we're shriveled and senile, these bits and bytes will live on to tell our stories of hyjinx and adventure.

Now, down to serious beeznuss... What's the deely with this Meme? The rule is you can only answer the questions with a single word. And I have to nominate 5 other bloggers to do the same. Well, I'll tell you a little secret. I'm kind of a rule breaker when it comes to these kinds of things. Friendship rings, chain letters, mail the 10th person on the list a pair of sexy underwear. Uh... no.

That said, I'll play along. Sort of. Because I like TypO so much and I really am flattered she tagged me. But, I'm taking liberties to shake this up a bit.

Here are five of my favorite blogs. Really really. You kick ass.

Lynda at Lulu's Bay
Amanda at Life in a Suitcase
Derfina at Life in the River
Pearl at Pearl, Why You Little...
and Gutsy Writer

  1. *SNORT* Ya got the coffee spurting out of my nose with #17!

  2. And shucks, Paw...Does this mean I get to put one of those badges on MY blog? *blushing*

  3. Derfina... yes! that's the best part of Meme shmeme... and if you meme, I promise to come over and check out what you write.

  4. Will do. Have to take El Juevo to school, so I'll be posting late for me, but you got it, babeeee. My first blog award! Hot damn!

  5. It's true. Meme's really are the chain letters of the blogoverse but some of them are addictive. And some are desperately needed. *cue NaBloPoMo montage* LOL

    Love number 17!! :p

  6. Thanks for the shout-out! :-) I'll take the meme, but in true rebel form, I'll have to pass on the rest. That said, however, it's given me ideas for further posts. :-)

  7. I want to know what part of Willy Wonka made you cry!? Is it when little Charlie thinks he's going to get kicked out for being naughty, too? I cry during almost every movie, but don't recall tears during that one.

    p.s. We are going through barf-fest 11/08 right now and I am NOT laughing. YET.m ;-)

  8. When he opens the first bar of chocolate that's his one and only bar that he gets every year for his birthday and there isn't a ticket and then he shares a piece with each of his family.

    And then again when he finds the ticket and runs home to show his family that they found it and his mother is so shocked she drops the cabbage on the floor.

    I'm an emotional whimp

  9. also Amy... sorry to hear about barf-fest. Unfortunately it has to get really bad before it starts to get funny. Hope you're all feeling better soon.

  10. Interesting - I also like #17.... what a bunch of loose moraled, peeping toms we are!

    I will add your kind request to the pile of other memes that I haven't done in 2008.... figure I might get them done in 2009... if I don't get distract...oh look.. something shiny!


...and you may ask yourself, did I get here?
