I've Been Tagged

“Okay, now I’ve participated in a meme and it reminds me of a chain letter, so I think I’m probably done with them.” – Jane Kennedy Sutton

I had to look up the word ‘meme’ before I wrote my March 20, 2008, blog which is the origin of the above quote. How naïve I was. I have just been tagged by Holly Jahangiri, Of Do I have To Spell it Out . I think this now makes for my fourth meme, but who's counting.

Holly mentioned that someone needed to come up with a new meme. I think all bloggers should make a pact to let memes die a peaceful death. However, I will continue to do my part until their demise.

This meme requires that I tell you seven random or weird facts about myself and then pass along the award to seven other blogs. I’m not sure if the following facts are random, weird or simply embarrassing, Anyway, here goes:

I once had to sign my own death warrant (required for our move to Saudi Arabia just in case I decided to break any of their laws)

Years ago I took a belly-dance class - the instructor was a popular stripper

I have an irrational fear of spiders, snakes and other creepy crawly things

When visiting Morocco, I was once asked how many camels I’d like in exchange for my daughter (I decided to keep her)

Last year I walked a total of 780 miles with my husband (he’s in charge of keeping track of our mileage)

I am directionally challenged and still look for my ring hand to distinguish left from right

My favorite family vacation of all time was our Kenyan safari

Whew! That was tough. Here’s my list of seven blogs:

By Cheryl Rushing
Tina Murray, Ph.D.
Today The Dragon Wins
Emma Larkins Emerging Author
Double M’s take on books, blogs, dogs, networking and life
Grandma Is A Writer

In case anyone is thinking about it—No Tags Back! And, though it is an honor to be remembered, it will not hurt my feelings to be skipped by future memes.

Thanks for stopping by.

Hahahahah!! I love it. You signed your own death warrant? I think that's the point at which I'd have said, "Hell no, I won't go!"

I know Memes are a pain-but they are so much fun for readers...

We get to find out cool stuff like how many camels your daughter is worth. :)

You are either one heck of a writer or you have had a very interesting life. Maybe both.

I still have another happy tag to do. I'l let you know when I can fit this one in.
