memes are in the air

Yesterday I was tagged by 2 different people. I was wanting to feel spring in the air, but instead I feel memes in the air. Hey, wait a minute, did someone stick a tag me sign on my back?????



Linda said she would like me to share with you six inconsequential habits, quirks, or things about me that you wouldn't otherwise know. Here are the rules. I will probably break them. I may not even realize I have broken them. I just get a little distracted sometimes.

Link to the person that tagged you
Post the rules on your blog
Share six non-important things/habits/quirks about yourself
Tag six random people at the end of your post by linking to their blogs
Let each random person know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their website

1.My fingernails curl upward. They have never really been longer than the end of my fingers because they are bizarre and disgusting. Don't even ask me about my toenails. They are the fodder of many jokes at our house. Yes, my family makes fun of me!
2. I still get nervous that there is something under my bed. I am not at all scared to be alone, in fact I love it but rarely get to enjoy it. But the bed just gives me the willies. I won't stand right next to it at night if I am alone. Sometimes I even do a bit of a jump from a few feet away.
3. I think root beer is the most disgusting thing on the planet. even when the kids eat root beer candy the smell makes me gag. But I love caffeine free Dr. Pepper.
4. We had to disconnect the little safety latch on the lid to our washer over ten years ago because it malfunctioned. I now have the opportunity to stand and watch the laundry swish around. And I really like to just stand there and watch it. How excited would I be to have a front loader? Very, cause I could be across the room and see the laundry swishing!
5.I like the grey hairs that I am getting and have no plans to color my hair.
6. I am going to go and make myself a bowl of Cream of Wheat in a minute. I love Cream of Wheat!

I tag:
1. Gretchen
2. Heather
3. Michelle
4. Haley
5. Ben and Mandy
6. Chrys

Whew**wipes sweat from brow*** That was hard. Gulp. Now I have another one!

Umm... these seem slightly similar, but I will do my best.

1. When I was in high school I was in a Benetton commercial. I don't even know if Benetton is still around. In the days before Starbucks leased every corner property in NYC there used to be a Benetton on every corner.
2. I can peel a shrimp in my mouth.
3. I have had a baby elephant run up to me in the wild and stick his trunk down my shirt. They are friendly little buggers!
4. I have walked on the Great Wall of China.
5. I have landed in an International airport that had chickens running through it. And the windows were busted out. They have since built a new airport in Kathmandu, but I am just giving you a heads up.
6. Also want to let you know that the strip search at the airport in Kathmandu is a scam. You DO NOT have to consent to it.
7. I have ridden an elephant. Not at the zoo. We actually rode them for several hours over several days. It is not all it is cracked up to be. But I liked them better than the camels!

I tag:
1. Nekked Lizzards
2. RDH Mom
3. April Showers
4. Swampy (I know you won't follow the rules!)
5. Country Doctors Wife
6. I'm So Funny
7. Wan Family Adventures

My tags have a theme. The first six are people that I actually, physically know. The next 7 are blogging friends.

I am exhausted. And I still have my Friday Feast to do. That may have to wait until tonight!

I will do my best to break ALL, count them A.L.L. of the rules, dahlin'.
Can't promise when this will be up, but you can bet your bottom dollar, I'll do it.

Megnificent said...

Ha! These were great. You're certainly an interesting person. :) Thanks for visiting my blog.

Alice Wills Gold said...

I also love Cream of Wheat. I had the same kind of topless washing machine growing up...don't get too close!

I will someday get the courage up to add all these cool blogging groups like Monday Madness and Grateful Thursdays...fun,but I have to take some time to figure out how they exactly word.

I am so happy to be your new blogging friend, and whenever I get the 10 pairs of pants hemmed, I will be abliging (yet, disgruntily) your TAG!!!! (sometimes, those tags take all the fun out of blogging...I hate feeling obligated - can you tell I'm rebellious!?) Now, know I am not mad at you...this is being said sarcastically..there just isn't a good way to type sarcastically (I think we could start a new trend that if you type ialicized in a comment, it means you're being sarcastic)

Alrighty...back to hemming mayhem.

Ok, Dahhhhling. My MeMe will be up tomorrow and Sunday. You better be there.

Hilarious!

Alison said...

Hi Cynthia...thanks for the tag...I hope to get it done this weekend and I will let you know when it is done!!
You are too funny about the under your bed thing!! I kinda, sorta have the same thingy going on!!

swampy said...

OK, my MeMe is up and running. Get yourself over there. You've been tagged back. Don't you just love this? TeeHeeHee (that's a witch's cackle_

Nekked Lizards said...

Well, I thought I'd posted a comment, but nothing happened after I hit the "submit" (might be a double comment now...)

Our MEME is up.

Alice Wills Gold said...

And, I finished my tag FINALLY. I didn't follow all the rules, but apparently that is OK with most bloggers!

Laura McIntyre said...

Oh i love these things , great way to get to know someone.

You know i loving watching laundry swirl and will sometimes just grab a snack and sit and watch (yes we have a front loader)

Allie Bear said...

Two things, number one: when I was little I used to wedge a clothepin in the hole for the safety switch and watch the laundry, my mom always said I was weird. Number two: when I was little one of my brothers hid under the bed and the other one waited out of the room and called me after I got in bed and my other brother grabbed my ankles and pulled me under the bed, so I am completely freaked about things under my bed. I'm 25 and I still run and jump sometimes to get in bed. Don't you just love brothers?

I loved the memes, you are a very interesting person.
