The Meme to End All Memes
A meme to end all memes
Part 1: The Birth of You
Were you a planned baby?
I seriously doubt it. I am 6 years younger than my sister and 7 years younger than my brother.
Were you the first?
No, I was third out of four.
Were your parents married when you were born?
What is your birth date?
February 26, 1970
Part 2: The Family
How would you describe your family?
We are the “fine” family. No matter what, everything’s fine!
Are your parents married?
Yes, they’ve been married for 44 years
Siblings or an only child?
I have one brother and two sisters.
What are your siblings names?
Brian, Michele and Deborah.
Do you have step parents?
Part 3: The Friends
Do you have more than one best friend?
No, I’d say I have only one.
What do you like to do when you are together?
Do you share the same interests?
Which friend can you tell anything to?
Part 4: Your Personality
How high/low is your self esteem?
It is high. I know my abilities and my limitations and accept both.
Do you get depressed about things easily?
Are you an extrovert or an introvert?
I’m an odd-sort of extrovert. People may think they know me, but most really don’t.
Are you happy?
For the most part, yes.
Do you live life to the fullest?
I certainly try to do so.
Part 5: Appearance
Are you comfortable with the way you look?
Yes. I think the first step to a good self-esteem is liking your appearance. If you have self-confidence, that projects out to the world around you.
Would you change anything about your appearance if you could?
I’d love to be taller, but I guess I’m tall enough.
Do you have any piercings besides your ears?
No, and I sometimes question why those are pierced.
Describe your hair?
Blonde, thick, just about shoulder length.
Part 6: The Past
Were you a strange child?
No stranger than the next child.
What did you use to love that you no longer do?
Snorkel. It’s hard to do that very often now that I’m land-locked.
Do you have the same friends?
Was there anything in your past that was traumatizing?
Yes, I can think of three major events. And as Forrest Gump liked to say, “That’s all I’ve got to say about that.”
Part 7: The Future
What is your dream?
To live by the ocean again in Kona, Hawaii.
Are you scared of growing old?
No. It is just a part of life.
Do you want to get married?
No. I've been there and done that.
Part 8: The Outdoors
Do you prefer indoors or outdoors?
Outdoors unless it’s cold out.
What is your favorite season?
Summer. I need sunshine and warmth.
Warm, low humidity and a sweet breeze.
Do you like walking in the rain?
Yes I do, unless it is a very cold rain.
Part 9: Food
Are you a vegetarian?
No, but I have been in the past.
What is your favorite food?
It is hard for me to limit it to just one. I love a good piece of dark chocolate, fresh baked bread with my mom’s homemade jam to name a few.
What food makes you want to gag?
Pickles. I absolutely hate them.
What is your favorite restaurant?
One of my all-time favorite restaurants is Tutto Fresco in Irvine, California. Obviously, I don’t make it there very often. Locally I like Mama Carolla’s and Maggiano’s.
Part 10: Experiences
What was one of your greatest experiences?
Having my son.
Have you ever done drugs?
What kind of drugs are we talking here? I don't think that is appropriate to write about in here.

Yes, but I’m not going to talk about it.

Can you dance?
Just enough to not be a constant embarrassment to myself.
Can you do a cart wheel?
I haven’t tried in a while, but yes, the last time I checked.

Yes. I must have a very long tongue or my nose is too close because I can do it with ease.

Can you wiggle your ears?
Did you ever get into a fight in school?
Not an out and out fight, but something close.

Did you have a party for your last birthday?
Do you know how to drive?

Most of them.
Do you own a bike?
Yes, I have two actually.
Do you think you could handle the stuff they eat on those reality TV shows?
Not a chance.
Do you tie your shoes every day?
I don’t wear shoes that tie every day.

Not bad, but my last car was much better.
Does your family have family picnics?
