Meme. Meme. Meme.

I've been tagged in a meme. What the hell is a meme? I really had no clue, so I turned to the trustworthy Wikipedia, who is never, ever wrong:

A meme (pronounced /ˈmiːm/, rhyming with "cream"[1]) is a unit of cultural ideas, symbols or practices, which can be transmitted from one mind to another through writing, speech, gestures, rituals or other imitable phenomena.


Then I found this one (also on Wikipedia):

The term "Internet meme" refers to a catchphrase or concept that spreads rapidly from person to person via the Internet, largely through Internet-based email, blogs, forums, social networking sites and instant messaging.


Basically in simple terms it's a chain letter. Now honestly as a teenager, I LOVED these things, and never broke them because I didn't want bad luck! As an adult, I simply delete them (sorry Aunt Ellie & Mom!). But one of my most favorite bloggers, Dani G, tagged me and I simply can't say no because I don't want her to think I'm not cool like that. ;)

So this is how it works, she tagged me and a few other bloggers, and left eight questions for us to answer. I need to answer them here on this post and then tag some more bloggers to answer eight of my own questions. Here it goes.

1) Last piece of music you bought/downloaded (legally or illegally)?
Foolish Games by Jewel....I actually woke up singing this song and realized I use to be in love with Jewel and why did I not have any of it in my iTunes?


2) Never go to bed angry? Or too tired for that and we'll deal with it later?
Eh, I'm not perfect and there are many times I go to bed angry. But then I get my entire bed to myself and that can be pure bliss at times.

3) Have you turned into your mother yet? Truth.
Truthfully no. Not to say we don't have a heck of a lot in common but there are definitely things we disagree on. Parts of me have turned into my mother and I'm sure in another twenty years I'll be able to say I've completely morphed.

4) If you could go back in time to high school, would you? I would.
Nope, never. Funny, I loved high school, but I fell in "love" with the biggest loser and wouldn't want to relive that. (Wouldn't want to change it either as I did get two beautiful children out of the deal).


5) What did you eat for breakfast this morning? I had a bowl of cereal. Two parts Fiber One, one part Cap'n Crunch Crunchberries. So what?
I had two eggs over-easy, two slices of *white* bread, and a cup of Mott's fruit/vegetable juice.


6) Do you secretly like the songs in the Backyardigans? Yes you do.
No I don't. Sorry, Dani. Only because I was spared by neither of the kids really watching the show. We did go see them though in Storytime Live a month or so ago and they were catchy songs!


7) Do you ever lie and say you think your friends kids are cute? What? No, no me neither. Every child is a gift (blah blah blah).
I'm pleading the fifth.

8) Desert island: husband, best friend, or Edward Cullen? Yeah, me too.
Seriously, is there even a choice. Edward Cullen. Man, I'm getting hot and bothered just thinking about it. Is it getting hot in here?


So here are my tags, and some of these ladies haven't blogged in a while, so maybe I can get them to come out of hiding:

*Krista
*Christina
*Crystal
*Kyra
*Tricia
*Irish

And my questions:

1. Since I believe everyone I tagged is a mom- what is one, trivial thing that you miss about before you were a mom? Mine is definitely not being able to just walk around in the nude when I'm too lazy to put on clothes. TMI? Sorry!

2. What is your addiction at this point in time? Mine is facebook, hanging my head in shame.

3. Are you an animal person? I seem to be the only in my family and friends that is NOT, and I sometimes feel guilty about that. Hoping to get a few more on my side ;)

4. Jacob or Edward?

5. Which TV mom do you relate to?

6. Do you take the stairs or the elevator?

7. What is the worst pick-up line you have ever heard?

8. Did you ever have a crush on any of your teachers? I had a couple that I definitely thought were cute for older men. I'll just stop there before I embarrass myself.

I feel so special that you tagged me! My blog is all about my kids, not me, so I hope you don't mind me just answering here!

1. Since I believe everyone I tagged is a mom- what is one, trivial thing that you miss about before you were a mom?

Being able to just go somewhere I want to at the drop of a hat.

2. What is your addiction at this point in time? Facebook!!

3. Are you an animal person? Yep! 3 cats, two lizards, two turtles, and may be getting a ferret soon.

4. Jacob or Edward? Neither! NOT a Twilight fan!

5. Which TV mom do you relate to? Rosanne LOL!

6. Do you take the stairs or the elevator? Stairs!

7. What is the worst pick-up line you have ever heard? Do you have any band-aids? I scraped my knee when I fell for you! @@

8. Did you ever have a crush on any of your teachers? Not that I can remember!

Thanks for the tag!! :) I haven't been around like I should be. Need to get back to blogging. :) Hope you're doing well.

You totally crack me up!!

TEAM EDWARD :)

Awww...thanks for thinking of me! This'll be fun - and probably a little scary. :-)

1. What is one, trivial thing that you miss about before you were a mom?
I was going to say FREEDOM but then I noticed that little word "trivial." ;-) So I'll say that I miss taking spontaneous weekend trips.

2. What is your addiction at this point in time?
Ummm...new move, new job - I don't know that I am able to have an addiction at this point! Although definite PRIOR addictions would include Facebook! :-)

3. Are you an animal person?
I believe I am an animal person; however, because I have 4 little human animals at home - plus a husband who is NOT an animal person...our animals are limited to a puppy and a couple of guinea pigs!

4. Jacob or Edward?
Have you seen Jacob's abs? Crap, have you seen his body - period? Not that his face is all bad to look at either. I feel pretty Cougar-ish, but good grief that kid is hot! Yeah, Team Jacob here! ;-)

5. Which TV mom do you relate to?
Marge Simpson (LOL)

6. Do you take the stairs or the elevator?
Depends...how many flights (up or dwon) and what shoes am I wearing?

7. What is the worst pick-up line you have ever heard?
"Are your feet tired?"
"No, why?"
"You've been running through my mind all day!"
Of course, I guess WORST could be debated as to what it implies. This particular pick-up line belonged to a very cute guy that was about 5 years my junior. (When you're only 26 years old, that's a big deal!) So whether it was the pick-up line or not, it worked! ;-)

8. Did you ever have a crush on any of your teachers? I certainly did. Mr. Neubauer, 9th grade English. He also coached football of which I was a student trainer. Many girls in our high school had a crush on him and were heartbroken when he married the physical education teacher!
