Oh the meme love! The excitement of getting the tag and being “noticed.” Yay! I’ve been meme dry here for quite a while. That was nice – the dry spell, I mean…
But it’s over. I guess the beginning of the year is meme season. And before you all go running into the woods to hide, like a deer, let me tell you. It will do you no good. I will still tag you all, eventually.
My “sweet”, “sunshine-y” friend, Lizbeth at Four Sea Stars, tagged me with a Liebster Award. According to Lizbeth, this award is given to “up coming Bloggers with less than 200 followers.” Now, she says that she doesn’t care if we have 200 or more followers, she was giving the award anyway. I don’t know what “followers” means, technically. But, whatever. An award is an award and so, I graciously and humbly (a-hem) accept.
Thank you, Lizbeth.
According to Lizbeth, in German, Liebster means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kindly, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing and welcome. I googled it. The translation I got was pretty much the same: “sweetheart, beloved person, darling adj. dear, darling; beloved, liked very much; affectionate, loving adj. favorite, preferred above others; liked or loved above others.” Cool. So, apparently, I’m a nice girl. Remember this part, when I tag you…
The meme, as it normally does, comes with some requirements (link back to the blogger who tagged you – yeah, yeah as though you need more publicity Lizbeth – give the red carpet a break will you?) and goofy questions that I must answer. So, here goes:
My Favorite Color – I have never understood this question. I don’t really care. Anything but gray. But if I had to choose, my favorite color would be whatever shade of blue the Pacific Ocean is directly outside the Four Seasons in Maui. That’s my favorite color.
My Favorite Animal – The lion. He/she is king. I want to be king. Who wouldn’t want to walk into an IEP with a lion?
Favorite Number – Really? I often wonder if this is a way for some obscure person from some meme 18000 memes back to try to break a passcode but hey, I’m a little paranoid. Let’s go with eight. My favorite number is eight. It’s round continuous and even.
Favorite Drink – If you read here, you already know. I cannot live without my Big Train Vanilla Chai Latte from Nordy’s coffee shop. Oh how I love thee. If I had to, I’d lick the last drop off the floor. Yeah.
Facebook or Twitter – Okay, I have not been on either very much lately because they are very addictive and time-consuming, and I just don’t have enough hours in the day. I do love me some tweets but Twitter is high maintenance and requires a lot of attention. Facebook not so much. If I had to choose, it would be Facebook. It’s pace is slower and I can find pictures of my friends and their families and that’s nice.
Passion? I’m a nerd. Strangely, it’s parallel universes and astrophysics. Maybe this will bond me with the little guy, who is currently in love with the planets (although he is anthropomorphizing them and professes his love for them and their love for both he and I…).
Favorite Day? Monday! Because the school week starts and I get a break!!
Favorite Flower? Well, it would have to be lilacs because they remind me of my childhood. Where I grew up, lilac bushes were everywhere and I would smell their sweet scent on my walks home from school, near the end of the school year.
Now, my friends, the moment you’ve all been waiting for…
I’m supposed to name ten bloggers to victimize. That’s not happening. So, instead, I shall name those who I think need to tell us a little more about their favorite color?:
Why has no one yet victimized the new guy? Jim probably has more than 200 followers even though he is new, because he’s just that good. Why hasn’t anyone else tagged Just a Lil Blog yet? Or did I miss that post? Anyway, Jim, since you’ve shown us all your truly compassionate and good nature (well maybe not your frustrated post…) – you’re tagged.
Lana at Along Came the Bird seems so busy and is always so sweet, I think we should slow her down a little with a little bit of meme’ing… here you go!
Suzanne at Peace Through the Pieces is a nice, new,
victim blogger who should let us know a few more tidbits about herself, and she’s so sweet, this fits, and, finally,…
Since you did say “neener” three times in a row in Lizbeth’s comments, it’s only fitting that I tag you Karla at Beyond the Dryer Vent. Didn’t you know the karma would come back and bite your behind? Compassion for the mama whose been through the IEP and illness lately? Nah… I have to get this sweet label off somehow. 😉 You’re it.
To all my other bloggy buds, I’ll get you all soon, if I haven’t already. And just so I can boost my apparent lack of 200 followers, I will be doing a giveaway soon. So, stay tuned…
