Oh MeMe, Oh My!

Services for Real Estate Pros with Globrix

So I’ve been MeMed. Sounds dirty doesn’t it? But it’s not, it’s perfectly safe! I’ve had a rather lovely time reading through other peoples MeMes so it’s only fair I indulge you all in five super facts about little old me. Thanks Lexa for picking me to MeMe!

Well I’m English, and I live in England! That might be a shocker...I am in many ways an AR fraud. I did lie on my application to get in...I am not based in Anaheim, but I had to choose an American location to join the community. I chose Anaheim because I have spent many happy Christmases there in the land of the mouse...and because if you squint at my surname it almost looks like Disney. Cool huh? 

When I was 5 I had a copy of my handwriting printed in The Daily Telegraph, one of Britain’s largest national newspapers. Why? Because it was so neat and advanced for my age that I think they thought they’d found the next child superwhizz. Although I was pretty advanced as a nipper, you wouldn’t know it by my handwriting now. It’s all bubbly and girly like a 15 year old cheerleader. I’m working on it (o.k. I’m not but I’d like to think that I was!)

When I was 18 I crashed my car on my way to work and a rather well known celebrity paid for the repairs! You may be wondering how, quite rightly! Well, I was working at a local restaurant at the time and one of my customers that day was this certain someone, who I won’t name because he’s pretty humble, and I told him what had happened in the same way I would chat with all my customers. I was basically a girl looking for pity from any strapping man! When he came to pay his bill at the end he gave me a wad full of cash to sort out the damage. I said I couldn’t take the money from him, he pointed to his Bentley outside the window and said “Trust me, you should try fixing up repairs for one of those things!”


Probably the most scared I have ever been was being caught up in a siege in Jerusalem. Although we had no idea what was going on at the time, Palestinian militants had barricaded themselves inside a building and taken an Israeli hostage...and our van was right outside. We were on a one track road and there was no way we could turn around, the army just said we’d have to wait where we were. I couldn’t believe I was in the holiest of cities fearing for my life. We were probably stuck for around 15 minutes, but it felt like a lifetime. When we got back to Tel Aviv we saw it all on the news and found out the details. Truly terrifying.

If I could have one thing on my desk right now it would be a slice of original cheesecake from the Stage Deli in New York. Mmmmmmmmm.

Well that’s me! Hope you learnt something...if you didn’t I’d be worried!

Ginger, MeMe is a way for us all to know more about each other...I'm not sure who started it, but the idea is you write 5 facts about yourself and then tag 3 people who then do the same...you can find out more about it on the MeMe group - http://activerain.com/groups/memes

Hope that helps!



p.s Thanks Jennifer!

I've been wondering what the heck a MeMe was.  In the south that would be a grandmother nickname.

Thanks for telling us the lowdown on Poppy.

I missed my one chance at love with a British girl who was working at a summer camp with me in Maine over twenty years ago.  Always wondered about those Brits...guess I always will.

Awesome Meme Poppy.  I have a feeling you are going to be an ActiveRain celebrity before nightfall :)  I knew I picked you for a reason :)

Lucky for meme that you poppedup on MyBlogLog.  I looked you up and found your meme.

I have now added your meme to my alphabetical meme list.  Check it out when you get a chance.

Welcome to Active Rain,

P.S. My "fruit" is LIMEberry.  That is too funny!

Poppy, what a scary experience you had in Israel!  I've been there twice but never had such a harrowing experience.  By the way, I prefer the Carnegie Deli to the Stage.
