I’m Not Doing This Because I’ve Been Tagged, No Matter How It Looks

I was tagged by Eric Alder from Bubba’s Place and Bifocal Univision and Haiku Koo-Koo to do this meme. I don’t usually do these when I get tagged but it’s been ages and I got nothing else. I will not keep you in suspense – I do not pay meme’s forward.

1. Why did you start blogging? Because I obviously have too much time on my hands.

2. If you could travel anywhere in the world with no restriction of costs, where would it be and why? Switzerland. Zuzana says it’s beautiful and I believe her.

3. Did you have a teacher in school that had a great influence on your life? My 6th grade teacher whose name I can’t remember because I am bad with names. She loved my writing. And she didn’t think I was strange.

4. If you could spend the day with a famous person, who would it be, and what would you do?
Living or dead? Living – Craig Ferguson. His mind is just wacky and he looks like a fun, nice guy. Dead – Any and all of the strong fascinating queens: Elizabeth, Catherine, Cleopatra, Boudicca. Lone stereotype breakers.

5. Toilet paper - over or under? If you like anything but over you are evil. Evil, I say.

6. Name one thing in your life that you would do over if possible. Listen even less to my mother.

7. Tell about your pets - if any. The Codes. He was 9 in July.

8. Do you live in a small town or a large town? (You don't have to name the town) It used to be a small town but now it is the megatropolis called JersyPennYork.

  1. BWAHAHAH on number 6. I'm like that for my sperm donor...bastard!!!! Ooops maybe I should have said that but oh well I did. I'm so with you on number 5. Have a nice day.

  2. Thom: This will be our secret ;)

  3. You're good. You put the toilet paper on the roll in the only possible position that is correct.

  4. smiles. listen less to your mother..smiles.

  5. Amazing coincidence. I remember someone from 6th grade who didn't think I was strange too! Oh, no I don't.

  6. Oh, I like your clever answers! As for the toilette paper, it has to be over for me..it's a bad obsession with me..

  7. You and I must have had the same sixth grade teacher. I don't remember her name either.

  8. Your answers were great and I want to go to Switzerland with you.

  9. Boudicca...?

    I hear she was a Hot Redhead!

  10. Numbers 4 and 5

    Why is it that we all have this obsession about the toilet paper and which direction it must go? Over for me thank you.

    I wish I had not listened to my mother at all. She was so negative.

    Great answers and I enjoyed finding out more about you.

    My 6Th grade teacher was Mrs. ROshbottom and I adored her,but I did get in a lot of trouble the day I took my hamster secretely to school with me in my skirt pocket.

    At lunch time I hid the hamster in my desk and made a barricade from my books. The hamster ate part of my book. I did not want hime to get smashe on the playground while we played dodge ball. LOL!

  11. I like this one... it helps everyone know more about you!

  12. You ever have dinner with Lizzie the first I'm bringing the three bean salad!

  13. What does it mean when the toilet paper is over upstairs and under downstairs?

  14. I enjoyed reading your answers. Nice to know more about you.Thanks for sharing.

  15. 5thsister: Sometimes, when you’re right, you’re right.

    Brian Miller: The Queen of Shoulds is not to be obeyed.

    Doug: Tease.

    Mumsy: It’s not an obsession, it’s just proper.

    Mama Zen: Toilet paper rolled under is the first sign.

    Alice Audrey: I may have to make up a name or do some research.

    Jeanie: Let’s go. I’m ready.

    G-Man: You heard right!

    Finding Pam: Our mothers must have gone to the same school of child rearing.

    I bet that was a fun day in school. Your own little Mary Had a little Lamb incident.

    Together We Save: The really important things, like how I like my toilet paper.

    tattytiara: I heard she really likes that.

    christopher: Freud says you were obviously damaged during the potty training phase.

    Eden: I am an open book. Ask me anything.

  16. I think mine was something like Miss Rose. She was a student teacher. Was yours brunette?

  17. I'm with you on 5!

    Switzerland is indeed beautiful. I lived there for a year and it was like living in a postcard.

  18. ah - switzerland IS beautiful - just came back from a business trip to switzerland / lake lucerne - and it was fantastic - just not enough time to enjoy it

  19. Cool answers. I used to do these memes - haven't in awhile, and I'm with you I hate "tagging" people to do them too.

  21. loved this and I agree Craig Ferguson is very funny--makes me smile every time I listen to his show-c

  22. Alice Audrey: Mine was a brunette but she was a very experienced teacher, maybe in her 40’s. I’m going to research to see if I can find her name.

    secret agent woman: Switzerland like places appear as dreamscapes in my mind.

    Claudia: I wonder if it would be hard to move to Switzerland.

    Sue: I rarely do them and most people know not to tag me but it had been a long while.

    iriz: it’s like we are running around the neighborhood.

    C.M. Jackson: I record him and watch him with my morning coffee.
