For all my non-social media friends who so sweetly follow my blog, here's how Wikipedia describes a meme (pronounced like meem, in case you were wondering):
An Internet meme is an idea that is propagated through the World Wide Web. The idea may take the form of ahyperlink, video, picture, website, hashtag, or just a word or phrase, such as intentionally misspelling the word "more" as "moar" or "the" as "teh". The meme may spread from person to person via social networks, blogs, direct email, news sources, or other web-based services.
In layman blogger's terms, it means that someone "tags" you, often with a list of goofy questions. You answer the questions and then "tag" a few other bloggers.
And on and on it goes. Where it stops, nobody knows.
Bloggers typically respond with groans and sighs, wishing they hadn't been tagged but I think they secretly love the recognition. It's like finally getting picked for the kickball team in gym class instead of being the last man standing.
So I've spent the last year and a half faithfully writing my little blog, standing on the sidelines, in my PE class issued elastic waist shorts and stinky t-shirt, patiently waiting to get picked.
And it finally happened.
I got tagged!
Maybe once I've been tagged multiple times like all my veteran bloggy friends, I'll groan and sigh and roll my eyes, too.
Today, I wear the crown.
I am "Meme Queen". Hear me roar.
I was tagged by Karen over at Solodialogue and if you haven't seen her blog yet (and her too cute son, Tootles), you really should rush right over there and check out all the good stuff.
Now, on to the questions...
My Favorite Color - I'm going with red. But not like crayon red. More like that rustic, old wood barn kind of red. Like this:
My Favorite Animal - I hope no one likes me any less when I admit this but I'm just not that much of an animal lover. Would a dolphin count?
My Favorite Number - I've never even really thought about this. Hmmm.... I'll take unlucky 13 because no one ever picks him, not even elevators.
My Favorite Drink - Now we're talking. Without a doubt, Route 44 Diet Dr. Pepper with a Double Shot of Vanilla. From Sonic. Amen.
Facebook or Twitter - Twitter. Short blurbs of information. Kind of like the ticker at the bottom of news network stations. But with more fun stuff.
Passion? - If this means something I can never get enough of, something I do when I have free time, and something I can get totally absorbed in and lose all track of time, it would be reading. I have always loved to read. And once I start a book, it has to be simply awful for me to not finish it. Like Don Quixote awful.
Giving or Getting Presents - Ummm.... gotta be honest here. I do like me a good present.
Favorite Day - Monday. My husband usually has the day off. The kids are back in school. And I usually do not do not much of anything on Mondays.
Favorite Flower - Sunflowers. They're huge and happy. What's not to like?
And this marks the end of my reign as "Meme Queen".
It's time to pass off my crown and tag some of my fellow bloggers.
So without further ado, the envelope please. I tag:
Lisa, over at Autism Wonderland because I've just discovered her and want to know more! And what better way than a meme?
Allie, from Little Baby Fields x2 because we have a connection besides just blogging and special needs kiddos. We both love Jesus! And I think she needs a good ol' mindless meme post to take her mind off her house conundrum.
And Jon, from Happy Trouble simply because he's the new kid on the block and I want to give my first meme to him as his first meme. And he's one of the few dad bloggers around here.
There you have it!
I will be checking the blogs to see if you caught the joy I just sent your way.
Have a lovely Thursday everyone!
