Face Book has Zombie's and AR has continual Meme's

Real Estate Agent with The Berkshire Group Realtors

This afternoon Margaret Woda Meme'd me...  I've been meme'd before and as a slacker I am, I've managed to ignored it until I forgot about it.  Sorry Memer's that's no reflection on you, being tagged is actually an honor, I've just not been hanging out here in the rain!   Life has gotten in the way, but tonight I'm not sleeping and thanks to Margaret my brain is meme'ing. 

Here goes:

  1. I am a Pisces.  I am named after a boat.  I was born in a place called Neptune.  I am a double certified scuba diver. Why I live in a land locked state is beyond me. Well not really I love the mountains too.
  2. I hitchhiked in Swaziland. Yes, the one in  Africa. 
  3. I'm very good at fixing flat tires.  In fact my husband just hands them to me.  I've fixed at least a hundred flat bicycle tires.  Once I did 9 in one day.
  4. I used to have a passion for Rollerblading.  So passionate I was I skated in strange places, like the runway at DIA (Denver International Airport) of course that was BEFORE it was open.  I would find pavement on new freeways and skate.  My favorite story occurred at NAR one year in San Francisco.  There is a circular hotel with the parking garage in the middle.  I put my skates on at the top and skated all the way down.  The guard yelled to me saying, "You can't do that!"  I shouted back "But I just did!"  :)  I then spent the rest of the day skating the entire loop around San Francisco.
  5. I celebrated my 50th birthday twice. Why? We were in Africa and not living by the calendar nor even a watch. The first celebration was in a tent with a hyena pacing back and forth all night opposite a very high fence.  The second was in a posh open air b & b where I had 2 glasses of 25 year old scotch.  It helped me forget the frogs on the floor in my room and the hippos over the hill just outside.

Ok now comes the hard part.  Since I haven't been hanging around here for months, (been busy selling Denver real estate) I don't know who has or hasn't been Meme'd.  (be back in a few...) 

Ok, I'm back after lurking around I feel like a Zombie looking for Meme blood...I found some great candidates, hope they will participate and keep up the meme spirit.

Kristal.... hey stranger.... this was awesome.  Why?  Because I think 3 out of your 5 things about you, I already knew. But why was it awesome?  Because it was like reminiscing. ...  I remember some of the blogs that you wrote in regards to your travels and such. Unless I am just dreaming this stuff up.... lol  

I remember the blog that you did with the picture of you rollerblading  down that drive outside the hotel. I remember either you telling me on the phone about your travels to Africa and how you had to sleep in a tent for weeks and that you celebrated your b-day... unless this was in a blog also. And I think I remember the tires, unless I am getting that confused on how you fixed the majority of your house that you bought in NJ... lol

In any case, I loved this and I didn't know about the fish vs land thing.  lol

On another note, you can't sleep either?  lol   Gee, I know that I am not doing this in my sleep. Anyhoo.... thanks for sharing this. And glad that business seems good.

You did it!!!  And WOW, what a doozie!!!

You certainly have had an interesting life!  Do you have any other posts about your travels to Africa?  Any pictures to share?  It sounds crazy and fun!  (Something I would like to do)

Please include this post in the Meme group that Sarah Cooper set up.

Also, I am off to include this meme in my alphabetical meme list.

Great job!!!

JEff ~ I think you are remembering a meme I accidentally deleted when I intended to edit.  I tried to replicate it, but couldn't remember it all. I don't have a picture of me rollerblading anywhere, so you are seeing it in your mind's eye!

Penny ~ By asking the question you have just pointed a finger at yourself.  Hey folks Penny hasn't been meme'd!   A good explanation can be found in the Groups section, search for memes.  Good luck!

Danielle ~ Thank you.

Neal ~ Start playing now!  Don't let your life pass you by working.  Blading would be a blast in Fla!

Lucky ~ I did Africa, North America, South America, Europe, Asia, UK all in one year.  You can see it on my broken site at BikeTracks  I will include this in the Meme group, just have to remember how to do it.

Joeann ~ Lily is right about her Grandma!  It's fun to share what we can do with the Grandchildren.  Part of what drove me in the hard times was the thought of being a "very cool Granny!"  There is something about doing unusual things I believe will one day spark initiative in them to help them achieve something much greater than I ever could.

Kristal....  I could have sworn you had a picture some where.... lol    Oh boy, and I am not even that old yet to lose my mind so quickly. But hey, I did remember the other things that you mentioned. Was it in a meme?  Damn, wasn't that like 11 months ago?

Kristal...You, Joeanne, and I have much in common regarding the Grandma thing (one of my grandsons named me Grandmommy...how I love that). 

I'm hoping all of my grandchildren have the opportunity to travel that I have had.

Those memes are pretty interesting.  Great to know about your travels.
