All About Meme

I would like to say that I was tagged to do this meme. However, that is not the case. I actually stole it. Uh huh, that’s right, I STOLE it. From Alicia at It Ain’t Easy Being Cheesy.

I told her I was going to steal it. I’m an honest thief, at least.

I am on overload this week and it’s all I can do not to tape my eyelids open, stick an IV drip of caffeine into my veins, and keep my brain from oozing out of my ears. So I’m relying on the power of the meme to pull me through this week.

… Okay, so I’ve been relying on the power of the meme for quite some time now, but who’s counting?

No, really. Who’s counting?

The Rules:

1. Respond and rework; answer the questions on your blog, replace one question that you dislike with a question of your invention, add one more question of your own.

2. Tag other people - I’m passing this on to whoever out there can’t think of anything to blog about tomorrow. *innocent batting of eyelashes*

What is your current obsession?
  1. Losing Weight
  2. Chocolate Chip Cookies
  3. Playwriting
I don’t know how to accomplish One without quitting Two. Because I need Two when I’m up all night working on Three. The vicious cycle continues…

What are you wearing today?
Short sleeved, v-neck, watercolor print tee, blue cotton shorts, and my favorite huaraches

What’s for dinner?
Lasagna – I made it from scratch. With the help of Prego and Pasta Barilla. Like I said, from scratch

What would you eat for your last meal?
  • My grandma’s fried chicken
  • White rice sprinkled with furikake
  • A full sugar Coke on the rocks, of course
  • Fresh baked (and served warm!) chocolate chip cookies
  • Maybe some vanilla ice cream for my cookies
What are you listening to right now?
“Wipeout” on ABC. And my husband’s very vocal ‘bottom’ instrument

If you could go anywhere in the world for the next hour, where would you go?
To Paris

Which language do you want to learn?
I want to be fluent in French and start learning Italian, Tagolog, and Spanish. My life goal is to be fluent in five languages

What do you love most about where you currently live?
It’s where my baby boy was born

What style is your current home decorated in?
Traditional Messy Baby with a touch of Contemporary Dog Hair

If you were a time traveler, what era would you live in?
I actually like the one I live in now. But if you press me, then I’ll say I’d like to live in the eighties or nineties again *Tee hee*

What is your favorite color?
I have two: blue and white. Like Greece.

What is your favorite piece of clothing in your own wardrobe?
My jeans

What were you doing ten years ago?
Living my fabulous, young life with stars in my eyes, my heart on my sleeve, sleeping ten hours a day, eating everything without gaining weight, and dancing seven hours a day! Phew!

If you had $300 now, what would you spend it on?
I’d put it toward my purchase of the following items:
  • Maclaren umbrella stroller
  • Britax convertible car seat
  • Pair of nude, patent leather flats
  • Motorcycle jacket
  • Man’s watch (for me, not him)
  • Brown leather cross-body bag
… somehow, I don’t think that $300 bucks is gonna be enough…

What are you going to do after this?
Post this puppy!

What are your favorite films?
The top three films I would like playing all day on TV:
  1. Gone With The Wind
  2. Bridget Jones’ Diary
  3. Under The Tuscan Sun
Your favorite books?
The top three books that have helped me in my life (in no particular order):
  1. Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret
  2. The Bible
  3. Natural Childbirth the Bradley Way
Do you collect anything?
Sanrio. And fat cells

Generally speaking, if the blogger is funny or a loyal commenter

What was the most enjoyable thing you did today?
Sitting down after finishing my errands for the day!

If you could live the life of any famous person, dead or alive, for one week, whose life would you choose?
Scarlett Johanson – only because I would like to see what it’s like to be married to Ryan Reynolds *drooling*

What makes you comment on a blog?
If they’ve commented on mine (I like to share the comment love), or if I’m moved in any way by their post

What is your favorite thing to do when you have some free time?
Sleep, hang out with my friends, go shopping, and sing and dance

What is a talent you wish you had?
Playing a musical instrument effortlessly

If you could be any other animal other than Human, what would you be?
A bird

Would you want your blog to be as popular as Dooce?
Yes and no.

Yes: How cool would it be to make a REAL living at blogging?
No: I already spend so much time in front of this here computer, my son has learned to take his toys and throw them at me when I don’t pay enough attention to him! How much more time would it require to have a blog as popular as hers?

What fad do you wish was popular again?
Never mind the fad, how about me getting the body back that could fit into those fads!?

My Question: How many kids did you want when you were younger? If you have kids now, how many did you end up having?
I always wanted four kids, I love big families. Now that I actually have one, I’m struggling with the idea of having one more!
