How Do You Even Pronounce Meme????

Is it just meem? Who named it? Why don't I know the history??

5 Things Meme

First, the rules

1. Each player answers the questions about themselves.
2. At the end of the post, the player then tags five people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves a comment letting them know they've been tagged and to ask them to play along and to read your blog.

What I was doing ten years ago...

1 Being rebellious
2 Ditching school
3 Rolling my Step-Dad's Rodeo (sorry about that)
4 Working at Sizzler making lousy tips
5 Having boy troubles

Five things on my to-do list today...

1 Did I mention I don't do lists? Which is why my house is in shambles.
2 Take a shower and defuglify
3 Make dessert for a dinner party of 10
4 Finish cleaning up the last of the pans from Ebelskivers last night (which took an hour to cook)
5 Make a couple birthday cards

Five snacks I enjoy...

1 chips & salsa & guacamole from Los Hermanos
2 Oreos (I just had 8) (or 10) (shut up)
3 Girl Scout Cookies
4 Have you seen my love handles?
5 Pineapple till my tongue hurts

Five things I would do if I was a billionaire...

1 Have servants... but still make my kids do chores (bwu ha ha ha ha ha ha)
2 Buy a fabo house. Not too big, cause that's just sad. Just a couple steps over our needs should
do it. But with a guest house. And have a few of them sprinkled all over the country---strike that---- world.
3 I don't know. It seems lame to have 5 options. The sky's the limit basically, right?

Five of my bad habits....

1 I pick my nails into utter oblivion. Seriously, it's crossed the line into mental defect.
2 I put stuff off forever....I should have had this done last week
3 I'm too into the internet
4 I never finish things

Five places I have lived....

1 Born in North Carolina (which is why Bree is my soul sista)
2 San Diego, CA
3 Nashua, NH
4 Palm Desert, CA
5 Many cities throughout Utah (I love to move)

Five jobs I've had....

1 My main employer through high school was a jewelry store where I did several different things
(glued "fake diamonds" into gold award pins, did office work, worked on the sales floor)
2 Server at Sizzler
3 Sales at The Gap, where I met Brandon in the dressing room
4 Bookkeeper for a law firm that collected on bad checks (loved that job, then had a baby)
5 Kiosk sales at the mall for 3 Christmases in a row. Sold cake, cookie, pancake mixes. All so
yummy. Fun job. How hard is it for me to pitch baked goods? I was a rock star.

Tag, you're it!! (I've never tagged anyone, as I hate it, so here goes)

1 Sally -

Holy Worth-The-Wait.

It's pronounced Meeeem. It's short for Memetic which is an idea or thought that spreads from one person to the next.

Sorry for barging in, I just found your blog by doing a random google search for meme's to add to my livejournal. :)
