What is a Meme?

I had no idea what a meme was when DownToEarthMama tagged me with one.

In Real Life, a meme "consists of any idea or behavior that can pass from one person to another by learning or imitation. Examples include thoughts, ideas, theories, gestures, practices, fashions, habits, songs, and dances. Memes propagate themselves and can move through the cultural sociosphere in a manner similar to the contagious behavior of a virus." (wiki)

In Blogger World, here are the rules:

1- Link to the person who tagged you
2-Post the rules on your blog
3-Write 6 random things about yourself
4- Tag 6 more people
5-Let the taggeees know they have been tagged by your tagdness
6-Let your tagger know when you have completed your meme quest of random goodies.

So here we go...

1. I was invited to be on the Dr. Phil show after I sent them an email one night telling them that my fiance wouldn't marry me because I had too much stuff (I even sent them pictures). He married me anyway bit a lot of stuff got thrown away. Which, don't get me wrong, is a good thing...but I am regretting getting rid of my serger and all my cake decorating supplies.

2. I didn't know that my 'dad' was not my Dad until I was 14. Makes me hate it when people lie to me.

3.Halloween is my favorite holiday.

4.I think okra is gross and it made me throw up in my Grandma's kitchen when I was little.

5.I stood in a very rickety chair in my kitchen a year and a half ago, breaking the chair and crushing my heel. I have a plate and 9 screws in it. I can now predict the weather better than the weather channel.

6.If I won the lottery, I would become a student of EVERYTHING. I would learn everything I could. Culinary School, Art classes, pole dancing, everything. I love to learn.

Now I get to tag you people...hmmm....

1. Lisalicious
cause we both have kick ass names, but she has the kick ass!

2. The Reasonable Person cause we have the same goal, graduate from Law School and pass the Bar.

3. Tia cause this chick is hysterical.

4. VintageSwampGirl cause I miss my pug, Dixie and her husband may have to bail the Oldest Boy out of trouble on the Plains.

5. TheCouponDiva cause I admire her and she scares me at the same time (she is stocking up for Armageddon, or looks that!)

6. ShoeMoney cause I just met him on twitter and I am fascinated.

So there....
