Memes Galore

What's a meme?? According to blogging basics 101: A meme is a pre-set group of questions, similar, in many ways, to a chain letter. You can start your own, or "grab" one off someone else's blog. You would answer these questions, about yourself, on your blog. You may simply leave it at that, or you may "tag" someone. That simply means you are inviting another blogger to post their answers to these questions on their blog.

I try not to do too many memes so y'all don't get bored - because we all know my life is SOOOO much more interesting... But I'm having blogstipation, so I've been tagged and I've seen a couple of memes I thought looked fun. And that's what I'm doing today. :)

JennieBoo tagged me for a middle name meme.

1. You have to post these rules before you give the facts.
2. Players, you must list one fact that is somehow relevant to your life for each letter of their middle name. If you don’t have a middle name, use the middle name you would have liked to have had.
3. When you are tagged you need to write your own blog-post containing your own middle name game facts.
4. At the end of your blog-post, you need to choose one person for each letter of your middle name to tag. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.

V- Voluptuous. Oh, wait... that isn't relevant to me. How 'bout VEGAS baby!! Since that's where I married my hubby.
I- Intuitive. I think I'm pretty intuitive and good at reading people.
C- Cozumel. Sei and I are planning to take another cruise to Cozumel because my bobbing head turtle I bought there ("Mel") broke.
T- Texan. Can I get a hell yeah??
O- Orange is my favorite color.
R- Rice. Sei likes rice with every meal. I get sick of it, yet I make it just for him- and all the children that he's brainwashed...
I- Impetigo. This is a contagious skin rash- that I've never had. But it starts with an I.
A- Anasazi. I spent 59 in the wilderness at Anasazi in Arizona. That's a double "A." What do I win??

I don't want to tag anyone in particular incase you aren't comfortable giving your middle name. Mine was easy since obviously "Tori:)" comes from Victoria. But if you'd like to participate please do and let me know!

I've seen this fill in the blank meme on a few blogs, but I stole the actual format off No Cool Story's blog.
My roommate(s) and I once... I’ve never had a roommate, so let’s change it to "friends". My friends and I once knocked over a porta-potty. No one was in it.
Never in my life have I... broken a bone.
High school was... so crappy I don't like to think about it.

When I'm nervous... I look mad (according to Sei.)
My hair... needs it's highlites re-touched.

When I was five...I had an umbilical hernia and had surgery on it. Twice.
When I turn my head left... my neck cracks.
By this time next year... I will not be pregnant.

My favorite aunt is... Aunt Joyce. She died a couple of years ago. But she was freakin' crazy! 
I have a hard time understanding... bad, bad people.
You know I like you if...I call you on the phone.
My ideal breakfast is... Frosted Mini Wheats- but they cost too freakin' much. Not a huge breakfast eater.
If you visit my home town...(as in, the town I grew up in): You will probably be kinda bored, but you'll be in TEXAS so that makes everything better.

If you spend the night at my house... we can play Dance, Dance Revolution and eat a lot of junk!!
My favorite blonde is...Dirk NowitskiMy favorite brunette is...Jacob Black- yes, from Twilight and New Moon
I shouldn't have...bit all my nails off during Transformers- again.
Last night I...stayed up way too late watching Blood Diamond. (Edited version)
A better name for me would be… I can’t think of any.
If I could have any car, it would be... I don't know. I always said I wanted an SUV, and now I have one. I'm kinda boring. I don't care as long as it drives.
You should do this meme if... You like to quote Spongebob.

I'm first! Impetigo!!! Tori, you are cracking me up! :D How fun that you get to go back to Cozumel. I want to play! :)

Anonymous said...

You are too much!! And I want to make sure I understand this correctly. You're planning a cruise to Cozumel to replace a bobble head turtle? lol

utmommy said...

I'll take that cruise with you. We've always wanted to do one!!!

Katie said...

So if you won't be pregnant this time next year, is that different from right now???

Tori :) said...

Suzanne- Let me know if you post the meme!! (Although I visit you everyday, so I guess I'd see it anyway...;)

Jenny- When I bought the turtle I told Sei when it's neck broke we had to come back. It broke a few weeks again! Woohoo!

UtMommy- Let's do it!!

Katie- Nice try. I am not pregnant and I am thrilled I won't be next year either. Liv is driving me slightly (more) insane. ;)

elasticwaistbandlady said...

I'll just be down here in Texas sulking because Tori has never called ME on the phone. :(

Tori :) said...

EWBL- And your number is??? And when have you ever asked for mine. Now I'm going to be up here in Utah sulking... (PLus, I copied NCS answer on that one. I don't like people in general.;)

Kayelyn said...

I like my SUV, too. I guess you cold always own several of them; at different times of course;)

EWBL: I live in Utah and Tori doesn't call me so I'll sulk with you.

It's okay Tori, I adore you anyway. 'Cause (duh) you're cool and I'm old, so being your friend makes me cooler;)

JennieBoo said...

I enjoyed reading your answers.

Well done.

I got my "GOOD MAIL GRUB" Recipe yesterday. WE're goona bake it tomorrow! Thank you!

Nobody said...

So random. So funny.

Stepherz said...

You tipped a porta-potty!? You Bad Girl you!

David said...

I am sooo glad you made sure we knew you watched the edited version of Blood Diamond. Otherwise I would have had to called Gina, asked her for your Bishops phone number and got you relieved of your calling. ;)

Wait, hey! Do you want my Bishop's phone number?

Liam's Mom - Gina said...

It must be the name Joyce because she was my favorite aunt too! Sassy and crazy fun person!

So, did you get your copy of Elclipse last night? I guess Borders had a big party from 10 to midnight! I missed out... I asked for it for my birthday.

No Cool Story said...

...had an umbilical hernia and had surgery on it.
NO WAY TORI!!. No way! I had one of those when I was 6 =:O

I bought Twilight today :)
Where did you get your edited version of Blood Diamond?


No Cool Story said...

PS: Tori likes me.


Tori :) said...

Kayelyn: Oh, I plan on owning several- at one time. A black Escalade with rotating rims... kidding.

Jennieboo: YAY! I hope you like it. It's a fave.

Nobody: Yeah, I was running low on "I" words...

Stepherz: I was such a butthead!!

David: I don't think I could have handled the violence in the original version- I had my eyes and ear covered in the edited! Soooo sad.

Gina: I pre-ordered mine on Overstock for $10.72 or something like that. It shipped on Monday. I'm waiting breathlessly....

NCS: I got the edited version at a Clean Flix place here in Utah. YOu can rent and buy edited movies.

ARE YOU KIDDING ME!??! We are twins! Maybe we were connected by the belly button and that's why we both had hernias... Hmm... This is like the "Online Parent Trap!!" And yes- I DO like you!!

No Cool Story said...

I thought Clean Flix went out of business. I had a membership with them ana then the Directors Guild of America closed them down :(
You cna still rent movies locally?

"Online Parent Trap" :D

Tori :) said...

NCS: It is called something else now, but it's the same owner. It's opened under an educational pretense or something like that... I don't know. But yeah- we rent there when we wanna be bad, but not too bad. ;)
