What have you done? A meme

A meme from Azahar – kind of interesting.  If you want to do it, copy it, paste it into notepad to remove the formatting, and have at it.  Put it in the comments if you want.  I’ve done a lot of stuff in my life!  Kind of an interesting memory exercise.

Meme Central

Why is it that I rarely do memes and the people I read rarely do memes?  Inquiring minds want to know.
Here’s one I just saw I liked so I’m stealing, revising it, and tagging some other non-meme people I know.

1. What are five things on your to-do list for today (not in any particular order):

2. What are five snacks you enjoy?

3. What five things would you do if you were a billionaire?

4. What are five of your bad habits?
 If you don’t have any bad habits, make something up so we’ll feel better.

There were two more concerning places you’ve lived and jobs you’ve had but we’ve seen all those.


1. What are five things on your to-do list for today (not in any particular order):

At least two loads of laundry, maybe 5, have about 8 to actually do
Re-process all the shit on my desk and not touch it anymore (hah, good one, bc)
Write up the baby-sitter’s list of Things To Do when we’re gone
Add flea control to the dogs and cats

2. What are five snacks you enjoy?
Chips and salsa
spicy chips and cottage cheese, or any chips and cottage cheese
hot pickled okra (only you and I will admit to this, Paula, I’m sure)
vodka with olives
TLC cheese crackers    I’m all about the carbs and spicy/salty …

3. What five things would you do if you were a billionaire?
Buy an airplane
Buy some airport personnel
Learn to fly the plane
F*ck those airport security lines, I’m going to Thailand
Find a great presidential candidate and get him/her elected

5. What are five of your bad habits?
 If you don’t have any bad habits, make something up so we’ll feel better.
Loves me a martini
Eating carby snacks in nearly unlimited quantities
Whining when things hurt
Not walking the dogs nearly enough
Not picking up food I drop when I cook, hoping the dogs will do it for me

There.  Now, having never actually tagged anyone to do this in public, can my 3 regulars belly up to the bar and have at it?   Maybe Lorena, DaisyFae, Kathy, Mair, possibly NM? Yes, I can count, no, I can’t imagine even three of them doing it.  At *least* three of them could be really funny, though.
