The Five Things MeMe (I Got Tagged!)

| January 30, 2008 | 2 Comments

A meme? Me? I never get tagged for memes!

Okay, so I confess. I saw that DaMomma tagged me early in the afternoon on Tuesday and I was in shock. Total shock. Like Does she really know who I am? shock. Even after more than two years at this, sometimes I feel like I am just talking to myself. But then again, I felt that way at the newspaper too. Anyway, when she left a comment on my blog, I knew I had to get moving on the posting.

For those of you who aren’t familiar with DaMomma, she’s a mommy blogger who published a book last year and writes about her adventures mothering two daughters. I’ve been following her blog for about two years now, and really get a kick out of her stories. And knowing that she has segwayed her blogging into several impressive paying gigs is great inspiration too.

First, the rules:

1. Link to the person that tagged you and post the rules on your blog.

2. Share five random and/or weird facts about yourself on your blog.

3. Share the five top places on your “want to see or want to see again” list.

4. Tag a minimum of five random people at the end of your post and include links to their blogs. Let each person know that they have been tagged by leaving a comment in their blog.

And we’re off . . .

1) I was tagged by DaMomma.

2) Five Random/Weird Facts About Me:

  1. I was afraid of cooking when I was younger. I mean sure, I could bake with the best of them, but when it came to experimenting — well, it terrified me. Perhaps that’s why my onion soup, vegetarian goulash, and potato soup were all shockingly similar. Actually, they tasted exactly the same. …
  2. I watched Dirty Dancing so many times as a child — not a teen, as a child — that I wore out the VHS tape. And I would pause the movie when Patrick Swayze got out of bed every time. What can I say? He was cute! Oh, and I still watch it now and again, much to my husband’s chagrin (but I don’t pause anymore … really) …
  3. Some people complain about doing laundry. I hate it with such a passion that I just don’t do it. My husband (my wonderful, kind, caring, generous husband) does the laundry for me … except for the children’s, which I pitch in on. Sometimes …
  4. The town I live in currently happens to be the same town that my grandmother and all her cousins lived in as children. But I didn’t grow up here — Shawn and I just settled here when we got married. Coincidentally, my cousin owns a farm that abuts my property. …
  5. I once worked as a kitchen helper for a well-to-do couple in New York. They lived on Central Park West and had an amazing apartment. My job? To serve and clear the plates. And they let me eat too … the little new potatoes with creme fraise and caviar were my favorite. That really opened my eyes to food.

3) Top five places I want to see or see again:

  1. London – I have been to London three times and I never get tired of it. It’s high time for another trip.
  2. Egypt – I am fascinated by pyramids and ancient history.
  3. Paris – I’ve been to Paris twice before, but have never taken the time to actually enjoy the food. Last time, all I ate was streetside crepes (with sweet fillings) and baguettes with tomato, lettuce and cheese. I want to go back for a food tour of the city and experience the farm markets, the great French cuisine and the amazing cheese mongers.
  4. Tuscany – This was DaMomma’s number 4 as well. After seeing Under the Tuscan Sun, I was hooked. I have to go and see this beautiful area of Italy for myself.
  5. Ireland – I love a good pint of Guinness. Where better to have one then in Ireland? But seriously, everyone I know who has gone has raved about the beauty. It’s high on my list …

4) Tag at least five friends
