MeMe... YouYou... Who's Counting?

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Prime Properties

Allllll righty then!  I've been meme'd again!  I'm starting to fear that people will think I'm conceited.  This is my fourth (and fifth) time having been hit with the good old "Tag!"  This time's culprits are Susie Roscoe and Karen George.  Thank you, ladies... for thinking I am interesting enough to wonder what about me you don't already know.  HeFilesre are some inane and completely useless facts about me:

1. I like to think I have it together, but I don't.  And here is proof.  I don't remember what I wrote in the other MeMe's I've done, so I am going to go back and read them.  You can, too, if you are so inclined.  Here they are: And the MeMe Marches On..., then came ... And the MeMe Marches Back... and lastly, How Many Member MeMe's Can a MeMeing Member MeMe?.  I also have files all over my car, my dining room, my kids playroom, and my bedroom.  Actually, right now, there is a file on the edge of my couch too.  I never lose anything, though.

2.  I am a total reality TV addict.  I will stop blogging and all other activity to watch Survivor, American Idol or Hell's Kitchen.  I also love Grey's Anatomy, but that's just a drama type soap opera thing, not reality.  I like them because, despite the debate about editing and things being set up, I still think you can learn a lot about human nature by watching what happens to these poor people.  Plus, they make me feel so normal.

3.  I have a red couch.  I am the only person I know with a red couch, and I am proud of it.  We painted our living room a nice beige color with bright white trim and window treatments, then we have a cool tan striped carpet and the red couch.  It was very daring for me because I'm pretty conservative, but I am way proud of my HGTV living room.  It looks awesome.

New York State Fair

4.  I love the New York State Fair.  It rocks.  I'm already looking forward to it at the end of the summer.  It always runs the week before labor day.  As a matter of fact, I was born the morning after my mom and dad spent the whole day there.  My mom thinks it is because she spent the whole day walking around.  We spend my birthday there every year.  It is even more fun now that we have the little ones to show around!  I am lucky to live here at the crossroads of the state, just a 15 minute drive from the Fairgrounds!

5.  I think I was a redneck in my past life.  It's one of those things that you eventually just have to stop denying and start owning.  I love barbecue, dream of buying an RV and I actually own a long sleeved flannel shirt.  Now, don't get too disgusted.  I don't wear the shirt.  But I have it just in case the mood should strike.  I am also married to a real, authentic country boy from North Carolina.  He brings out the redneck in me!

I don't want to pass the MeMe to anyone who doesn't want it... but should I anyway?  No, not gonna do it... not gonna do it.  But, if you want to meme and you haven't been asked, consider this your invitation.  Just make sure to e-mail me so I can read yours!

Mana- I love my couch.  Some time I'll put a picture on here... if my living room is ever free of toys, that is!

Stephanie- LOL I LOVE Grey's Anatomy.  I have my husband suckered into watching it too!  We make a little date of it every week and make sure the kids are down early so we can drink coffee and watch together on our red couch!

Your meme is almost eerie!

1)  I think my real estate stuff clones itself and spreads all over the house while I sleep - I can totally relate to you there!

2)  I don't like survivor but we do watch Idol and Hell's Kitchen - I love the direct personality of the chef on that show.  I also love trying to follow all the craziness on Grey's anatomy.

3)  I have a red couch with two red side chairs.  I knew I had to have the set as soon as I saw them and we saved up to buy them for almost a year.

5)  I am from CA but married to a guy from Tennessee - he tries to deny that he is a redneck but admits to being a "Good ol' boy"  (what's the difference?).  I also listen to country music, which is weird for a girl from California!

4) Don't love the state fair but I guess we have to be different on something!

I love grays anatomy too. Miss the show in the summer, not sure how it will go without some cast members.

I am a redneck too, and proud of it. Born in KY. ha

Christina - We have way more in common that I would have guessed :-) - My files and stuff in the car "multiplies itself" whenever I'm not looking - love the reality TV too - much to Jack's chagrin.

Christina, my husband usually works late on Thursdays and he knows not to call from 8-9.  That's my tv time.  :)  When does the new season start?

Okay...where's the real juicy stuff...reality tv? Okay. I have no red anything. You're like my mom with her bills all over...but she knows where everything is. (me? I'm all organized and stuff most of the time). My hubbie is from PA...and that's it.

Thanks for sharing more of I have to go see the other ones to see if I've missed anything.

Hi Christina,

Fun stuff in your meme. I loved your comment "I like to think I have it together, but  I don't", ha! I can sure relate to that one myself.

I think we were all living in the same RV park in a past life ;)  I love American Idol...although my fiance always asks me if I am 13 when I watch it...loser.  I have two purple chairs and I love them!  I own flannel short (Its florida, too hot for the shirt)...too much fun!

Rita- Yeah, that is a little weird!  LOL AND... my husband so wants to move back to Carolina in a few years.  I think we will end up there sooner or later.

Missy- Yes, Grey's Anatomy is my all time favorite.  I have been watching it since the very first episode.  Is that good... or just dorky?

Cyndee- It's good to have things in common with our AR buddies!  I'm so glad to hear that I am not the only one with stuff everywhere!

Stephanie- I don't know, but it's not soon enough.

Susie- I know, I love my couch.  It's so fun!  I will certainly update this if anyone decides they are going to run with it!

Sally- I have a hard time figuring the difference between boring and just plain "TMI"  Maybe next time I will do a completely TMI one and just post a disclaimer.

Jack- Thanks!  Great minds think alike, right?

Lynda- Thanks for stopping by.  I do sometimes get delusional and think my stuff is organized.  Then I look at it and... well, you know the drill.

Thesa- LOL well, you know... we all have our little flannel secrets.

Leah- LOL I don't care what they think... we have to have our IDOL!

Teri- Yes, I like both of those too.  I missed Amazing Race last season because it conflicted with something... and I didn't start DVRing it until the end.  The Bachelor is another favorite around here.

Susie- Oh yeah, we love the bachelor.  Last I knew, Trista was pregnant.  Has she had the baby yet?

This is a great meme - I love the choices you made - I especially like the red neck in a former life thing... I'm seeing Jeff Foxworthy jokes now.

Christina, I might have missed the other MeMes but this one was really fun and I enjoyed.  You should consider it a compliment that so many want to learn more about you.

Beth- Thanks!  I am glad you enjoyed it.  It's funny you said that because one of our silly little habits is making redneck jokes whenever we catch ourselves in a redneck moment!

Kimberly- I do consider it a compliment, actually.  That's why I keep doing them!  Thanks for reading and I'm glad you liked the MeMe!  And I'm glad to have found a fellow reality TV fan!
