Meme Going Around

1. WERE YOU NAMED AFTER ANYONE? No, I don't think so.

4. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE LUNCH MEAT? Any but bologna.

5. DO YOU HAVE KIDS? Does a bear live in the woods? Yes, I have six wonderful kids.

8. DO YOU STILL HAVE YOUR TONSILS? No, I hope not, unless the doctor missed something when I was five.

10. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE CEREAL? Special K with Strawberries.

40. WHAT IS THE FARTHEST YOU HAVE BEEN FROM HOME? Hawaii when I was in the 6th grade.

41. DO YOU HAVE A SPECIAL TALENT? Writing. I guess whether or not I have talent is up for discussion...I haven't had a lot of talent for marketing my writing...but writing is definitely an obsession.

42. WHERE WERE YOU BORN? Vancouver, Washington. That's Washington State, not Washington, D.C. And that's Vancouver, Washington, on the southern border of Washington across the Columbia River from Portland, Oregon, not Vancouver B.C. Have had to convince a lot of people I'm not Canadian. Maybe I should answer "where are you from" with: "Not D.C., not B.C." It could be a riddle.

If anyone reading this would like to answer these questions, please feel free to pick it up from me as I picked it up from others. Just copy, delete my answers, and insert yours. If you do, I'd love it if you'd leave me a link to your post.



Hat tip: I've seen this blog around lately, but I picked it up from Jean.

I enjoyed reading this, MM. Some of your answers made me laugh.

One thing we have in common is that we both like cherries a lot. My dh always kids me about that because when we used to bring dinners to my mom at the nursing home, (she was too ill to leave then) she always said after eating a full meal, "We should have eaten the cherry pie first!"

She had dementia and was always saying funny, but honest things like that.
