I got meme'd. Ewwww what is the slimy stuff on me...

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Austin Homes, Realtors www.OwnAustin.com BRE# 0457133

Well it looks like I got meme'd.   I was a bit confused as this was the first time seeing this.  I get up around 2 am, I can't sleep, figure I would read some e-mail and Bam I get one from Jeff BelongerI went to bed with the anticipation of writing this.  

Jeff Belonger was so gracious to "slime" me and has given me so much patience as he waits for this ME ME.  He has been lucky enough to get slimed 3 times as he writes I got slimed by that damn MEME again....... Part 3

For future reference   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.

So I guess here are five things about me.  I hope you enjoy,

1.  I grew up in Wisconsin and at the tender age of 18 went to the Navy.  Wow!!! Did I have to grow up fast.  I am glad I went in.  I now have some of the best friends a guy could have.  I also learned how to be a meterologist. woooo hoooo



2. My favorite football team is the Green Bay Packers.  I have season tickets and will be going up for a game in Oct.  Sorry Jeff Belonger  the pack is going to win the first game this year.

College Football.......My favorite team is the University Wisconsin Madison Badgers

3. I move 11 years ago to Texas on a whim.  I had never been to Ausitn before and I just had to get away from the cold.  Now I do love my family, but I can't pass up playing Golf on a 70 degree day in January.  I have been here ever since.

4. I love my job as a Real Estate Agent.  I love to help new home buyers get into a home.  It feels like everytime they buy a home I buy a home.  My clients are not only clients they become my friends too.  It is such a great feeling when you give them the keys to their new home.

5. I love being active.  Until recently I just worked and sat around a lot. Not a very healthy life style.  Then, I decide to start working out.  Well that turned into running a few times a week, swimming and playing a lot of tennis.  Life is so much better now.  I hope everyone can get out of the house.  The nice things though is I haven't had a TV in 8 years so,  staying inside is not an option. 

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......

       1.   Monika Murray - Burlington, ON  She is brand new to Real Estate. I wish her the Best.

       2.   Melissa Nottingham, WV Real Estate Agent  WV Real Estate Agent She is another new agent as well.

       3.   Larry Hammelman -- He is ranked number 1 in Whiteside County


Well I hope you all learned something and if you have any questions please send me an email.

Good luck to all.


For those that have been meme'd, please follow the instructions in the e-mails that you received in regards to this. And here are a few examples to follow :

Jeff K. ........no apologies needed when it comes to the Green Bay Packers....  you might know that this is an extremely small world. The Packers are my 2nd team and the Badgers are 2nd with the Louisville Cardinals. I have been following the badgers for last 15 years easily. My dad was born in Two Rivers, WI and I have relatives in Madison, Milwaukee, and a few other places. But, the EAGLES will win that game, so don't worry. 

In regards to the Navy, I was in the Army for a few years. You might like the video in this post.  Armed Forces -- A tribute to the men & women of our ARMED SERVICES......

Overall, thanks for doing this and for sharing all of this. It wasn't that hard, right?   PS... you said you have season tickets?  For 2?  For 4? And do you go every game?  Most?  That would be a lot of traveling. I always loved that one beer commercial to where some Packer season ticket holders were moving and everyone was helping them to move our. Ever see it?  It was a good one. Stating that tickets are hard to get.

Again, thanks for sharing and welcome to Active Rain.

Thanks for the nomination Jeff!!  Here is my meme.. I hope I'm doing this right..

Ok, so I got memed... Once I acknowledged that fact I realized that I didn't know what "meme" was. I'm brand new to Real Estate and brand new to Active Rain and there is so much to learn.

For all of you that don't know what meme is here is a definition: 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.

The person that nominated me for meme was a cheerful looking fellow named Jeff Kessler. Thank you Jeff. I'm beginning to realize that in Real Estate world you have to learn and learn fast even when it comes to "playing in the Rain", so here I am trying to learn fast how to do this meme thing.

Now on to 5 things about me. Are you ready for a ride??

1. I was born in Poland. When I was 15 years old, my parents decided to immigrate in search of a better life. My dad had to go alone at first leaving my mom, me and my sister behind. We couldn't go together as a family because I was in high school then and school board did not give us the permssion for me to interrupt my school year. My dad went to Italy and from there to Canada. We were all reunited after 2 years of separation. I don' t know how my parents did it. It must have been so hard. I have endless love and respect for them. My home town in Canada is Toronto. That's where we settled when we first arrived in Canada.

2. I'm married and have 5 beautiful children. 4 from my first marriage (15 year old girl, 13 year old twin girls and 11 year old boy). The youngest one from current marriage was born in March of last year and so she is only 16 months old. Being a mom, I'm sure my Real Estate carrier will be challenging, but rewarding as well. I also have been blessed with a wonderful and supportive husband who is behind me 100% whichever road I decide to take.

3. I have a lot of interests outside of my proffessional life. I am a runner, I love golf and I bowl from time to time. I also love reading and I'm working on my own home library. As a runner, I've participated in number of local races such as Run for the Cure 5K, Robbie Burns 8K and Toronto Sporting Life 10K.

4. I'm a big hockey fan. My team is the Toronto Maple Leafs. Yes, I know they haven't won the Stanley Cup in 40 years, but they are my home team and I'm loyal to them. Every season is a new season and being a positive person I believe that it's never over until it's really over, therefore each season I'm full of hope.

5. I've been interested in Real Estate for a while, but it wasn't until I was on Maternity Leave with my youngest, that I decided to take a plunge and change carriers. I have a lot of passion for Real Estate, I love challenge and I know this has been a right path for me to take. There is nothing better than finding that perfect home for your buyer or helping your seller sell their current house and enable them to pursue dreams of finding more suitable abode.
