I have been tagged by Loz from "Midlife, A Journey" with a meme called "Into the Spotlight". The meme originated with Christy at "Christy’s Coffee Break" and the rules for the meme can be found here. There is a series of questions. You may choose to answer any or all. This is the tag I was looking for in a previous post. Thanks Loz, for thinking of me. Hopefully, you will get a chuckle out of it.
When did you start blogging?
When I was about 12 years old, I found a paperback book that evidently belonged to my 19-year-old brother. This book described in detail a lonely woman’s life and what she did to ease her lonliness. It made Jeff, the adolescent, feel . . . well . . . a little funny - and he experienced emotions and drives he never felt before. Well, one thing led to another and . . .
Funny thing is that I never heard it referred to as “blogging” before. Oh well, this wacky 21st Century with new names for this and that. What are you gonna do?
What do you hope to accomplish with your blog?
I hope to have kids some day.
What are your feelings on the "blog popularity" issue?
I don’t know. I am not really an orgy guy. As Seinfeld said, I don’t want wear the robes and get into all the oils and stuff.
What's your favorite childhood memory?
See first question.
If you were stranded on a deserted island, what three things would you want to have with you?
1. I would want to have a bottle opener. I have to be able read my mail, you know.
2. I would say a boat, but I probably would get pretty sick of the whole water recreation life being on an island and all, that I would get bored with it pretty quickly. So, with that in mind, maybe a pinball machine (solar powered – I’m not stupid).
3. I kind of would like to have a potted plant. No wait, there will probably be all kinds of plants there, so . . . WAIT! There wouldn’t be any pots. So yeah, a pot to put one of the plants in.
That’s it. I don’t want much, really
What is the weirdest thing that ever happened to you?
One time I was running late for an appointment. I thought that unless I make all the traffic lights “green”, I would be late. As it turned out, I made all the lights “green” (except for one), and I made the appointment on time. Can you believe it?
What is your best quality?
I can juggle. I learned how from this buddy in college who wanted me to start out juggling scarves. I didn’t like that so I just worked on juggling balls (they look like hacky sacks). I got to be pretty good at it, but never tried chainsaws.
What is your worst quality?
I tend to brag too much about being able to juggle. I go on and on about it. You guys are probably just sick of it by now.
The rules of this meme stated I could answer these questions anyway I wanted to. I chose quirky humor. I hope you “get it”. As far as tagging, nah. All of you are optionally tagged.
