Me....Me....It's All About Meme!!

By now you all know I can't resist a meme! Recently Giggles did this one and I thought I'd give it a try. If anyone wants to do this feel free to do's a finish the sentence meme.

1. My uncle once (actually more than once) played Santa Claus for his community. Everyone would give him the gifts ahead of time and on Christmas Eve he went around to all the houses and gave them to the children.

2. Never in my life have I ever touched a snake!

3. When I was five my parents were my world. As an only child I spent most of my time with my parents....or alone. I lived in a cocoon-like world, very protected and shielded from everything.

4. High school was intimidating! I was not one of the "in" crowd, was very shy, and walked around most of the time with my head down!

5. I will never forget to keep an open mind. I like to learn new things, learn about different cultures, see how others live, and just keep learning whatever comes my way.

6. Once I sent a tumbleweed through the mail!! You can read about it here!! It's rather timely since it's hurricane season again!

7. There’s this boy I know who is growing up so fast and becoming a young man....he's my grandson! He's my youngest grandchild but he's not a little kid anymore! He's in high school (home schooling) and getting very tall, his voice has changed and he sounds very grown up. Where do the years go??

8. Once, at a bar, I pretended to be someone else. A guy I dated liked to act out different scenes and pretend to be different people so we would go to a bar, decide ahead of time who we would be, and then we would go in and act out whatever kind of characters we were supposed to be! It was a lot of fun and sometimes got a lot of attention....I think that was his whole thing!

9. By noon I hope I've accomplished something artsy! It's supposed to be 103ยบ today so if it isn't done by noon, chances are I won't be doing it!!

10. Last night I played with Photoshop. Still trying to learn it!!

11. If only I was born a computer geek! Then all this would come easy to me.

12. Next time I go to church it will probably be for a wedding or a funeral!

13. What worries me most is the safety and happiness of my kids.

14. When I turn my head left I see a window looking out onto our side yard.

15. When I turn my head right I see the new printer, the telephone, and LuLu sleeping on the side desk.

16. You know I’m lying when I don't want to look you in the eye.

17. What I miss most about the Eighties is my youth!! I had a lot of fun in the 80's....and some bad times, too.

18. If I were a character in "Lost" I'd want to be the love interest for either Sayid or Sawyer or Jin!! Of course, they'd have to do some fancy magic with the makeup to make me look young enough for them but that's their problem!!

19. By this time next year I hope we can sell our house and move to TN.

20. A better name for me would be Miss Routine! I like my routines and always have trouble adjusting to changes.

21. I have a hard time....see above!!

22. If I ever go back to school it will be to study art.

23. You know I like you if I I talk to you! I rarely spend much time talking to people I don't like.

24. If I ever won an award, the first person I would thank would be HB. He's been very supportive of me from the beginning and he always encourages me in whatever I do.

25. Take my advice; don't let your age be a stumbling block to anything you want to do.

And just so there's a continuation of the "age" thing, last night I was trying to draw an older woman....

I'm not completely happy with it but it's a start.


  1. Fun! I love memes too. Love the bar answer! My friend and I used to do that (we pretended to be sisters by a different father and from Canada! Oh gosh, what were our names?!!) hehe.

  2. I like your older woman and your me-me! You are a fun if older than some, woman. Not a bad thing to say, right?

  3. Janet if you were doing number eight with a guy, then I think you may be lying about number two!! lol

    Loved the meme, you did a great job, and that tumbleweed story was wonderful. I laughed, because that's exactly what my friend Laura would do. She's fun like that!! Me, I am not a snail mail person anymore! I used to be, but I don't like it now...funny how we change!

    Great answers, I would want to got to art school too, and I rarely talk to people I don't like. I just don't like toxic energy around me! Thanks for sharing all this!

    Hugs Giggles

  4. I've always enjoyed reading your meme's. This one was fun.

    The other stamp.... was it Blue Chip you were think of?

  5. Your older woman looks great Janet.

  6. Great Meme! I loved all your answers, you always make me smile and chuckle with your answers on them. I Loved the drawing too.
    Come see my newest "toy", she's a beauty!

  7. What a fun meme, I loved reading your answers…
    I am afraid if I did this I would bore people out of their minds..
    It was hot here yesterday too…and humid….
    However, today it is beautiful…


  8. Your memes are fun Janet!
    I've touched a snake I think! At a zoo thing.
    I held a tarantula before too! Their feet feel like little suction cups.

    Um, routine? I get crazy if mine is out of whack. Like you, I thrive on my routine.

  9. This is a cute meme.Did you get any art done? It was so hot here today...we just stayed inside where it was cooL!

  10. Love your meme answers. And your new drawing is great. Hope you have a great week! Hugs***Renea

  11. I like your older woman...!!!
    Our university charges no tuition for those of us over a certain in a couple of years, I could study art for free...maybe there is something like that near you!
    [Though art can be learned just by "DOING" which you know!]

  12. aloha Janet,
    Im shocked, I never knew that you were old, I always and still do think of you as a sweet 30 something, just like
    I like your meme's Janet, they are insightful and fun!
    thanks for sharing, peace, Kai xx

  13. I'm laughing at #8.
    My girl friend and I used to pretend to be French, and not understand what guys were saying to us. If we'd ever met any French guys we'd have been in trouble.
    Like your 'older' lady, you always seem to find something interesting to work on..

  14. Great meme Janet...and I could have written several of your answers! I know we are related somewhere in our background!
    I know we would talk and talk if we met because I'm sure we'd like each other. That said, I know we'll never call each other on the phone either..LOL
    I love your age true...and that's why I love art because it's ageLESS! Hope to see you here in your 90's! Love your new drawing...such a nice change. Our society is just too youth oriented if you ask me...LOL

  15. I like the older lady.
    I was born and raised in Tennessee. What part are you thinking of moving to?

  16. I loved reading your answers.

    And just so you know, most people feel awkward in high school! I always on the "outside" of a group, thought I was fat (wish I weighed that now) and was shy. If only I knew then what I know now. Everyone felt the same way.

    The important thing is to enjoy life now!

    Enjoyed your blog and will be back!
