A Random Meme????

I started seeing blog posts yesterday that listed something called a meme. I tried to infer from my reading to see what "meme" meant. I thought...unusual facts about a person? I couldn't really tell, so I looked it up on Wikipedia. That wasn't much help either. I discovered the wording to look up is: internet meme. Read it and see.

Fast forward to today. I pulled up my Google Reader and began reading Rachel's new post. She was tagged for the 8 random facts meme. As I read down to the bottom I noticed that she had tagged me! So here's mine:

First, the Rules:
1) Post these rules before you give your facts
2) List 8 random facts about yourself
3) At the end of your post, choose (tag) 8 people and list their names, linking to them
4) Leave a comment on their blog, letting them know they’ve been tagged

1. I read in the car at stoplights. (I only get honked at occasionally)

2. I live near Orlando, FL so I have annual passes to Disney World.

3. My guilty pleasure is playing games on Webkinz. I also collect Webkinz cats.

4. I attended eight schools and lived in five states growing up because my father got transferred frequently in his job. He was a U.S. Secret Service agent.

5. My all time favorite childrens' books are: Where the Red Fern Grows and Tale of Despereaux.

6. I will NOT ride roller coasters because I am petrified of heights.

7. I have BIG babies. My first child was 9 lbs. 12 oz., my second child was 9 lbs. 3 oz. and my twins were 13 lbs. 6 oz. together.

8. I love to read historical romance novels.

Well done for being so observant Melanie!

I just hadn't quite got around to tagging people yet... it was getting very late (or should I say early!) last night when I wrote the post.

BTW you are very naughty to read at the traffic lights... but I guess it depends on how thick the traffic is huh!

Cheers, Rachel

My police officer husband fusses at me all the time. It just seems like wasted time that could be put to good use! :)

I have responded to your tag (http://timmonstime.blogspot.com) and tagged 8 new people!

I loved Tale of Despereaux. I haven't read the author's other books yet though. We'll be heading to Disney World over the summer. I really feel like it's a place where I can just enjoy myself and leave my cares behind. Fun to read your facts!
