Five Things You Probably Didn't Need to Know But I Got Tagged So You Get to Read About Them Anyway!

One would think that with all the house painting that has been going on in her part of Canada, The Buzz Queen wouldn't have had time to zip by and sting me with another meme but that's exactly what she did - dang the woman! Of course, the reason she tagged me was "because this will keep her busy and she might not notice I haven't done the 8 Things meme she tagged me with! hehe". Hey Kai - guess what? Didn't work, I noticed! Hehe!

Being the good little do-bee that I am, though, I will complete my assigned meme and then go back over and harass Kai unmercilessly until she gets around to doing the Eight Random Things meme that I tagged her with ... quite some time ago! Painting - shmainting - I shall brook no excuses!

Meanwhile back at the meme ...
  • List five things in your refrigerator (good thing I just went grocery shopping or this would be even more pathetic!):

    1. Approximately 1-1/2 pounds of seedless green grapes.
    2. A practically empty gallon of 1% milk that needs to be replaced soon (I forgot to buy milk on said grocery jaunt!)
    3. Two packages of hot dogs.
    4. One package of cream cheese for bagels.
    5. Half of a Monster energy drink that Amanda has yet to finish as she seemed to get nervous when I told her that they really weren't good for you and drinking two of them in one day was way bad!

  • List five things in your closet (this doesn't seem fair as I only have one closet in the whole house, darned old Victorians!):

    1. Way too many clothes that no longer are in fashion or fit so really need to be weeded through and gotten rid of.
    2. About six pair of shoes that I never wear as the ones that I do wear are under the bed.
    3. Several boxes of assorted things like pictures, collectibles, and other memorabilia.
    4. Replacement light bulbs for my ceiling fan light.
    5. Flavored massage creams (don't even ask!)

  • List five things in your purse or backpack (I don't carry a purse or backpack so how is this fair? I only carry a small ID holder as I'm usually in uniform!):

    1. My driver's license.
    2. My health insurance card.
    3. A frequent shopper card for Hot Topic, Amanda's favorite store that gives me a headache!
    4. My check debit card.
    5. The fortune from the cookie I got on my last trip to the Eastern Sake Buffet which reads "Don't be surprised by the emergence of undiscovered talents!" - whatever the heck that was supposed to mean! I also learned how to say 'telephone' in Chinese ... Dian-hua; and my lucky numbers are 1, 22, 47, 25, 5, and 39!

  • List five things in your car (hey, I can do this as I do have a car!):

    1. An umbrella that I got from my friend Rhonda for Christmas.
    2. My checkbook.
    3. A bunch of "windshield notes" that I have received from my friend Bucky at work (you can read more about that in a previous post by clicking here).
    4. All of Amanda's My Chemical Romance CDs as well as another one she made for me with music from The Used, 30 Seconds to Mars, and Good Charlotte (and yes, I listen to all of them!).
    5. A key chain that holds all of my "shopper cards" from local stores that I go to - i.e., grocery stores, CVS, Jiffy Lube, etc.
  • List five things in the world you want to see before you die (which hopefully won't be anytime soon!):
    1. Most, if not all, of the Civil War battlefields.
    2. My children and grandchildren happy.
    3. Our military being properly compensated for the job that they do for our country.
    4. The Tower of London.
    5. The view from a window of the Captain Lord Mansion, a romantic bed and breakfast inn located in Kennebunkport, Maine. This view, of course, would have to be shared with someone special (should I ever find someone special).
Now I get to tag five other poor SOBs lucky bloggers to do this meme so I shall tag ...
  • Jenifer of Everybody Loves Raymond (well some maybe) (who just recently reentered the Blogosphere after a lengthy absence due to the lame excuse of not having a computer or Internet!)
  • Lyn of Last Minute Lyn as I owe her for the last meme she tagged me with!
  • Dixie of Dixie's Heart & Soul as maybe it will take her mind off of her son, Matt, leaving for Marine Corps Boot Camp in less than nine days.
  • Mrs. Dub because even though Sgt Dub is home from Afghanistan doesn't mean she needs to spend all her time with him!
  • And lastly, Lori of Life, To Make a Long Story Short, sister-in-law of Gale of Gem-osophy fame because I love the comments she leaves on Gale's blog and if Gale loves her then she's got to be one heck of a woman!
Now if you'll excuse me I have to go over and unmercifully harass Kai to put down the paintbrush and do that meme I gave her! If she doesn't do it soon I shall have to report the blatant disregard of Meme Etiquette to Mimi, Queen of Memes and I'm sure that some form of harsh punishment shall be meted out in the dungeons of Bloggingham Palace!

  3. I'm sure many will be wondering about the flavoured massaage creams!

    Well you'll be pleased to know that after all that I've Tagged You again.

    This meme is a little bit different though

  6. Good answers, Linda! You don't even WANT to know what's in MY car. The fact that it's a '77 Chevy Impala (4-dr) should scare most folks as it is. Interesting & entertaining post to go w/the first coffee of the day. Thanks!

  7. Thank you Linda! I shall complete the challenge immediately!
    Oh, and I'll also check out that blog you mentioned... Everybody Loves Raymond.... I too, love Raymond....ok and several other sitcoms....I am a tv addict! Can't wait to check out that blog!

  8. Ms Kai got me too....but I owed her for the totem post.

  9. Anonymous8:33 PM EDT

  10. I shall see to this blasphemy. Off with their blogheads!!

    Flavored massage creams? Bring me some and I might show mercy.

  11. I will do this tonight from the hotel room.

    I don't know if it will take my mind of him leaving or not.;-)
