Attack Of The Memes

The last time I participated in a meme (not of my own creation) was back in January. The reason is simple. I don't like them. So, if you have tagged me in the last nine months and I have failed to acknowledged it, please know that it's not because I don't love you. It's because I, much like a child below the age of five, like to believe that if you can't see something, it can't see you either. Like maybe if I ignore the fact that you tagged me, you might forget that you did it. What, that doesn't work? I'm going to ignore that you said that. But sometimes, if you're lucky and I'm bored, I'll do your meme anyway.

Like today...

Tagged by Krissa:

1. Link to the person who tagged you and post the rules on your blog.
2. Share 7 random or weird facts about yourself.
3. Tag 7 random people at the end of your post and link to their blog. Feel free to steal this if you want to.
4. Let each person know they’ve been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog. Consider yourself notified.

1. I hate imitation banana flavoring.
2. Sometimes I talk in a British accent for no reason.
3. I STILL hide things that I did as a teen from my Mom.
4. I have no problem handling frogs, lizards and snakes that I know aren't poisonous.
5. On average, I take about three photos a day.
6. Hoop has better fashion sense than I do.
7. I love conventions for the free food.

Goldfish (Cracker) lovers unite! Just one more reason why I like you. :-)

LMAO @ the unicorn cops!

Unicorns? Hahaha!

At 22 October, 2008, Blogger Chatty said...

How would a unicorn pull you over, anyway?
Would he honk his HORN at you?
I can't believe I just wrote that. A thousand pardons...
and congrats on getting the license - one more nagging chore off the list!

You were a novelty knife salesman? That is so cool. How does one get a sweet gig like that?

Do you count each of the 7,000 steps? Cause that sounds like a pain in the a$$.

I like memes - when other people do them. I always learn something about you.

So #3 on the first one... does your mom know about and/or read your blog? I know Hoop does.

I love mango. Have you ever tried dried mango? I'm not much on dried fruits, but dried mango is really good.

At 22 October, 2008, Blogger Janet said...

hahaha 15 ten years ago, too funny :-)

love the unicorn conversation!

At 22 October, 2008, Blogger Tawcan said...

Thanks for responding to my tag. :D

On average you take 3 pics a day? That's not too bad. ;)

I'm getting Hoop a hearing aid for a wedding present.

At 22 October, 2008, Blogger Jay said...

I still hide things I did last week from people. LOL

Pushing Daisies is the best show on network TV! They better pick it up for the full season.

Quit working for awhile and travel.

You mean to say you'd go back to work? No early retirement? Wow.

At 22 October, 2008, Blogger Gin said...

Love your meme answers. I feel I know you better now. And you are so cool, it's nice to know you better.

I never tag anyone with meme's. I don't mind doing them myself, but don't like to impose them on anyone else.

i love unicorns!

At 22 October, 2008, Blogger mrspao said...

Can we hear your British accent, please, please, please?

At 22 October, 2008, Anonymous Anonymous said...

Mangoes, yum! (esp. dried mangoes)
What is pocky???
Doesn't everyone sleep in class? I don't really know - I was asleep.

And thanks to furiousball, I now am imagining playing ring toss with a unicorn and some donuts...

At 22 October, 2008, Blogger Woman in a Window said...

Do unicorns wear uniforms and speak in British accents? If so I'm breakin the law!

Killing myself now...

Girl, I loves me some Hoop & Tink conversations. You guys crack me up! Also loved the "honking the horn" comment from above. NICE.
Those memes are fun to read...every now and then. If I can't think of anything to write in the near future I will snatch those up and let you know when I post them. So, probaby within the week. ;)
Special note:
Today's word verification is "subbleg" not to be confused with "overleg" nor with my "stubbly legs". Yikes.

At 23 October, 2008, Blogger Reb said...

Maybe unicorns only pull over virgins? That could be why there is never a cop around when you need one? ;)

At 23 October, 2008, Anonymous Anonymous said...

Novelty knife salesman? what? are they joke knives or were you pretending to sell them - the mind boggles!!

Gotta love the Hoop conversations though! Freeze, its the Unicorns! lol! we call them Hedlu after a holiday in wales.

You lived in Toledo?? I've read your blog for at least 2 years and never knew this. Did you go to HS here? I'm older than you, but I have friends your age that graduated from sylvania. What a small world, huh?

At 23 October, 2008, Blogger mamatulip said...

I'm the same way w/ imitation strawberry flavouring. It makes me gag.

What is Pocky?

I love the Hoop convo. It reminds me of Neil Patrick Harris in Harold and Kumar Escape from Guan Bay.

The husband and I have "unicorn" conversations on a daily basis. For serious. Why? Cause I'm crap at hearing and often confuse with what he said with what I think he said.

Hoop - not that you have bad hearing, but - I feel your pain.

Today's word verification: mouguor (a new creature in Harry Potter?)

At 23 October, 2008, Blogger Peggy said...

Unicorn, uniform
balaclava and baklava

These little trips of the tongue are what keep us giggling.

Gosh, ten years ago, I was doing the same shit, only the older kids are gone now and our "baby" is fifteen!

At 23 October, 2008, Blogger Just Jiff said...

lol. Too funny. And I hate tagging other people on meme's too.

At 23 October, 2008, Blogger Arabella said...

And imitation cherry. Yucky to me.

At 23 October, 2008, Blogger jean said...

Try being married to a unicorn. They aren't as fun as you might expect.

And what is Pocky? I don't think I've ever heard of it.

At 23 October, 2008, Blogger LL said...

I can't believe it... You really did that? I'm... I... I'm aghast! :P

At 24 October, 2008, Anonymous Anonymous said...

This is what I think about when I think Unicorns.


At 24 October, 2008, Blogger captain corky said...

How come on all of my lists from yesterday, today, and tomorrow pot smoking is number 1 too? ;)

At 24 October, 2008, Anonymous Anonymous said...

I can't stand fruit flavored anything. Blech...

As for the unicorns, they get you every time.

If you are interested: I have bloggy bling for you at my place :)

1. Thank you and I'm sorry I didn't tell you sooner. I've had company. NO! Not just a lame excuse. Really!
2. Pocky is a fav at this house.
3. "Do all girl at a beer distributor" sounds mildly nasty and made me laugh out loud. Thanks for that!
4. Pushing Daisies is one of my very favorite shows.
