MEME MEME MEME MEME MEME MEME
Okay, so my singing is bad...... Well, my lucky number is 3...... and this is the third time that I have been meme'd. And some of you that are still new to Active Rain are wondering, What is a meme? It sounds kind of weird. Don't worry, it's not the character on your right. That is slimer from The Ghostbusters.
But getting back to what a meme is...Jay & Francy Thompson wrote this : For those of you that don’t know what a meme is: It’s a thought stream carried from one person to another, or, to be more precise, a “unit of cultural information transferable from one mind to the other,” so says Wikipedia. Basically, it’s the blogging equivalent of a chain letter. The cool thing about blogging is that the meme can be tracked. Entire websites are devoted to doing just that.
Okay, so you want to know 5 more things about Me? Jeff Belonger??? Okay, just one more time.
1. Well, this should be funny.... I hated writing as I grew up. From grade school, to middle school, all through high school, and even college. I was usually late on my reports, book reports, etc etc. If you told any of my teachers or professors that I have written 168 blogs since October 5th of 2006, they would think that you were ... well, loco would be a kind word. But it's amazing how much that I have enjoyed writing ever since I was introduced to this all because of Brian Brady and Nima Rezvan.
2. I just soooooo love sports. If I had a 2nd or 3rd calling in life, it would be to work for ESPN. And my favorite sport is pro-football, the NFL. And my favorite football team is the Philadelphia Eagles.
College Basketball.......My favorite team is the University of Louisville Cardinals.
3. I know have mentioned this in at least 1 of the 2 meme's that I have done. But I truly love what I do. That is helping people with their finances. May it be buying a new home or refinancing their current mortgage. Do I love the easy client... the easy loan, sure, I won't lie. But what I love most is helping that person that has been turned down by several lenders. That I am able to allow my creative juices flow. I also love using my knowledge to where I would offer a client another solution that maybe another lender would never have thought of. I pride myself in this.
4. As several of you know, I was in the US Army for 2 years. Overall, I just have a soft spot for all those that served in the Armed forces. Especially those that have given up their lives for us to live our lives so freely.
But one thing that I will do when anything happens in the United States that has affected families, friends, etc etc..... I will be glued to the TV for days and sometimes weeks, just watching the news and any updates. Just 1 1/2 months ago, when Virginia Tech was in the World News, I was up for days. Just the same when 911 happened.
5. Are we almost done yet? I love anything near water. May it be a restaurant, a bar, a beach house, etc etc. I love driving through the Florida Keys. I have had the pleasure of driving from Key West to Miami in the morning when it was still dark. And several other times during the daylight. What an awesome site, just driving over water for 2 1/2 hours.
Now, I have the pleasure to slime, I mean, meme 3 more people. When I smack you on the back of the head, please go to your computer and write your meme for all of us to see. With that said, I smack......
