Nobody likes me, everybody hates me... think I'll go eat worms

No one has ever tagged me for a meme. I know I am not the most widely-read knitting blog around, but somehow I thought it would have happened by now. I lifted them from other people's blogs when the mood has struck me. I don't know - maybe I do need to have my email address on the blog - I had been resisting it thus far.

In any case, I decided to create a meme of my own - feel free to purloin it if you like it.

Deep Thoughts Meme

List 5 Scars You Have:
1. A cross-shaped scar under my right nostril from when I fell down the stairs as a toddler and had a nail go through my face (yikes!)
2. A small scar on my left thumb from over-zealously opening a shampoo bottle with a straight razor...
3. A small scar (and bald spot!) from getting clocked in the head with a rock when I was 12.
4. An episiotomy gone bad. 'Nuff said?
5. Four scars from perfectly placed fingernail cuts on my right forearm (Teri!!!!!)

List 4 Things Within Arm's Reach
1. Nearly finished glass of milk
2. My 40% off Michaels coupon
3. A Halloween-candy-sized box of Nestlé Smarties.
4. The jade bracelet my sister-in-law gave me for Christmas

List The Initials of Three People You Wish You Still Had Contact With
1. S.A.H.
2. D.M.H.
3. G.?.S.

List 2 Songs That Have Made You Cry
1. "If You Leave" by OMD. I had found out my grandfather had died earlier that day and it didn't really hit me until I heard that song.
2. "In My Life" by the Beatles. I used to sing this to Willow as I rocked her to sleep as a baby and it would sometimes make me cry.

List 1 fashion fad you were guilty of (and it makes you cringe now!)
1. Big bangs... I had seriously big bangs in high school.

Okay little meme... you have your wings - fly! If you do pick up the meme, please let me know so I can check out your answers.

I actually don't like doing memes all that much (though I enjoy reading others' memes, go figure!), so I always feel bad tagging other people. If I ever get tagged again, I'll remember to tag you. :-) Ooh, that one about the episiotomy gone bad put a shiver through my spine. Ouch! I never had an episiotomy per se, but more of an involuntary one when my daughter gave me 2nd degree tears that required over an hour of stitching. I still get the heebie jeebies thinking about it. ;-) Take care, Jo! :-)

Jo said...

Tara - Yes, you know #1. And #3 :)

Chris - Mine started as an episiotomy and ran from there... I couldn't hold Willow until she was about an hour old because of the stitching, too. Hopefully that doesn't happen next time!

Mom - if you are reading this, no, I am not pregnant.

I can't figure out who any of the initials are, but as for the fingernail scars - I think we are even because of the scar you gave me under my right eyebrow from pushing me into a wall!

tara said...

ok, I do know 5. He wasnt at the reunion you know. I think about him too.
BTW, what is meme and tagging?

Jo said...

Woo-hoo! I love coming home and finding lots of comments!

Jaime - I had completely forgotten about that rat tail of yours! I think that was worse than my bangs!

Teri - I don't know...

Tara - a meme (as far as I know is supposed to pronounced 'me - me') is a set of questions you answer about yourself. Tagging is when someone sends you the questionnaire to be the next person to answer it and put on your blog. Consider yourself tagged :)

P.S. What are 'big bangs'?

Jo said...

SP -

Fringe to you :) I was in high school at the tail end of the 80's and had curled, blow-dried, and gelled up bangs that gave me about 2-3 extra inches in height...

And woo-hoo! I'm been tagged!
