the “gimme 5” meme – i’ve been tagged

June 30, 2008

the clever fool has tagged me for the “gimme 5” meme that’s makin’ the circuit.  here goes:

1. share 5 unknown facts about yourself.
2. pay it forward! link 5 more bloggers and include their names in your post.
3. leave them a comment on their blog and let them know that they’ve been tagged.

here’s my 5:

1. i have this very uncanny ability/habit of looking at a clock/digital timing device (e.g. cd player, stop watch, kitchen timer) at exactly 2:27.  the reason this is significant? i was born on 2.27.
2. helen reddy’s “i am woman” is a kick ass tune that i love.
3. one of my biggest fears is dying alone.  that or in a car crash.
4. i completely believe in life on other planets.  there is no way we are the only thing out there.
5. i have some pretty big “dad” issues that no-doubt play a part in how i relate to guys.  my biological father denied that i was his and my adoptive father abandonded me when i was about 12.  no wonder i’m single and screwed up.  ha!  lol.

for part 2, I’m going tag:

  1. jasontt
  2. forty two
  3. dulce y peligroso
  4. famous like me
  5. sort of blog
     

 

flickr meme

June 8, 2008

i’ve seen this around a bit and thought it looked like fun, so i tagged myself.  yup, that’s right – i tagged myself.  deal.

the concept:
1. type your answer to each of the questions below into Flickr Search.
2. using only the first page of results, pick one image.
3. copy and paste each of the url’s for the images into big huge lab’s mosaic maker to create a mosaic of the picture answers.

the questions:
1. what is your first name?
2. what is your favorite food? right now?
3. what high school did you go to?
4. what is your favorite color?
5. who is your celebrity crush?
6. what is your favorite drink?
7. what is your dream vacation?
8. what is your favorite dessert?
9. what do you want to be when you grow up?
10. what do you love most in life?
11. what is one word that describes you?
12. what is your flickr name?

some blogs are posting their answers to each other questions – i’d rather remain an enigma.  i think the mosaic stands on it’s own. 

i am going to tag a couple of folks – just for giggles:

cb over at mangina monologues

matt at matterdays

and da jeep guy over at adventures of big island jeepguy(and my current fav blog – this guy is awesome)
