white/brown/black & i've been tagged.....

i've been tagged for a meme by zabs
how fun! i haven't done one in awhile and i always like a good meme.

Personal Top 8 Meme.

Here are the rules:

A. Each player lists 8 facts/habits about themselves.

B. The rules of the game are posted at the beginning before those facts/habits are listed.

C. At the end of the post, the player then tags 8 people and posts their names.

1. i walk to my temp job everyday from my apt downtown. it takes about 30 minutes but it's great exercise and saves money on gas and parking.

2. i love water. i love swimming. i love the beach. i love these things and i love to talk about how much i love them to the point that it's nearly driving my poor husband silly. despite this fact i have not yet been swimming in the pool at our apt complex and that fact is lamented every day when we walk past it. it's just a matter of time and the lack thereof.

3. i am addicted to craigslist. i check it obsessively all-day-long. seriously. i look for jobs, furniture, gigs and apts i don't even need. i send links to my friends whenever i find a little odd job they might be interested in. i love doing that. i love research. i love connecting people with stuff they love. could i get paid for this craigslist research job?

4. i have catered 2 small weddings and some days what i want to do is go to culinary school and have my own cooking show. other days i want to be an event planner. most days i want to be a writer and photographer. in between i just want to travel the world and get paid for it.

5. i HATE how divinity tastes but i love the southern-ness of it and the tradition of it and how it looks all lined up neatly and how the weather has to be just right or it will fail miserably.

6. almost 2 months in and i still haven't written my wedding thank you notes and i feel like a jerk.

7.i miss summer nights where you could stay up as late as you want and watch nick at nite because you don't have to go to school the next day. i miss the old nick at nite with patty duke and dobie gillis.

8. last saturday night i went to see the polyphonic spree in concert in cleveland. i haven't listened to them much but my husband is a huge fan and our friend that works at the venue got us free tickets. after waiting an hour for the show i was pretty much convinced i would never be a fan no matter how good there show was because i was so annoyed at the one hour wait between the opener and the main event. it turns out they were amazing and somehow totally made up for it with their quirky, fun, confetti-full show.

i'm tagging andrea & glam jo & joy & karen & my dad & lisa & aj & jan

oh yeah, I am so totally doing this. you know how I feel about memes. I'm thinking of starting a meme-of-the-month club.

love the shot of divinity and yes, so southern! (I am missing the south lately)

Karen said...

i don't even know what divinity is!

i will do it. i'm just not sure what i haven't shared with the public (well, of the things i'm willing to share!).

here's a link to a divinity recipe, it's just the candy that you find in the DEEP south .

Karen said...

so do they get kind of hard and squeaky when you bite them? i wouldn't like that.

i love your picture of divinity, but i don't like the taste of it. one of my friend's is obsessed with it (she is the definition of a southern belle), and i don't understand it. i have a love hate relationship with memes...i actually like doing them, but i hate tagging other people. :)
