8 Things

I read a few blogs that were committed to not using memes to get them through NaBloPoMo. I found I had so much to write about that I'm totally behind in some cool memes. So expect some meme-a-liciousness soon. And if you like memes, join the party! I found this Meme at I Have Rocks in My Head and thought the questions were cool so joined in. Ahem, I do realize the answer reveal some of my rather eclectic tastes.

NOOOOO WAAAAAY!!!! (Great minds think alike.) :) I commented on your previous post...and then I saw Suzie's comment there and thought, gee, I don't read her blog, so let me go see what she's up I did. But then I forgot that you had a more recent post, so I checked in at Twitter and saw Momster's request for Christmas songs. So I went to YouTube to find the song I most like to hear at Christmas and Twittered the YouTube to link to it. And then I suddenly remembered I hadn't finished reading your posts so I came back to this one...and when I clicked on your video and saw Take 6 I had to laugh... What I Twittered was Take 6's "Mary Don't You Weep." :)

Great meme!! I don't think I've seen this on my blogtravels! I love the Take 6 vid, oh my goodness I dont' think I've seen that one in years!!

Thanks for sharing Jamie!!! I may just have to participate in this one!

I haven't seen this meme before either. I love all your answers and I hope you are able to feel at home as soon as possible. You definitely need to perform too for sure. A lot of the things you say are so positive too, encouraging and helpful. I like some of the titles of the books you're reading and don't know a lot of the authors. I love Sue Bender, I need to read her again.

I love that video! I had totally forgotten about it, thank you for that reminder.
