Meme Wednesday

Okay, so I saw this really interesting meme over at Working Momma and thought I'd copy it. Here are the first images that came up on Google images when I typed in the following (and I had to use some out of the top row rather than the very first one because a couple of them were rather disturbing...)

Age at my next birthday:This would be the Messier 28 globular cluster in Sagittarius

Place I'd like to travel:

This would be Thailand. And I don't know why, but I just think it would be interesting. Sounds exotic.

Favorite place:Yellowstone National Park! The Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone to be exact!

Favorite object:

Self explanatory

Favorite food:

Which is actually microwave boneless chicken (and rice), but this is what it came up with. Pretty close!

Favorite color:

I think maybe only my hubby and any science geeks out there would get this reference. My main nickname (from camp) is Chaos (and that's an entirely different story) and this picture came up as Chaos Theory. Isn't it cool?


At the foot of Mt. St. Helens! And I was born 6 months before it erupted.

This all segues nicely into the meme that Mrs. Mustard tagged me for a couple weeks ago called "7 random things". This almost covers it since it was supposed to be 7 random things about you... but I'm sure I can come up with a few more.

By way of a few explanations:
1) I spent 2 summers working in Yellowstone. It's definitely an interesting crowd of people to work with. And seriously, the tourons leave their brains at home for safekeeping because they either ask the weirdest questions or are just completely rude. Wonder why I wanted to work in a touristy place considering I grew up in a tourist town...

2) I must have my own pillow with me no matter where I am to spend the night. This is an absolute priority.

3) I like middle school students. Whenever anyone finds out that I am a middle school teacher (or was training to be one) their first response is "wow" as if I'm some super human to want to even be around them. Seriously though, they are so fun. They can still be goofy and childlike, but usually don't have the "attitude" that high schoolers have. And they can be grown up when need be so you don't have to take them to the potty or tie their shoes for them. The best age really!

4) I'm left handed. I also have a LOT of genetic recessiveness. It's fun in science class. Really...

5) I run around barefoot as long as I can, even in the snow! Unfortunately this comes back to bite me because lately I have had COLD feet when I go to bed. I can be perfectly fine and the minute I lay down, I notice that my feet are cold. Really cold! Poor Brian!

6) I'm running out of things to write here... hmmm, stairs are not my friend. Seriously. It would almost be a deal breaker in terms of housing. I've sprained 3 ankles from falling down stairs and broken my pinky toe. Stairs scare me.

7) Since the last 2 are about feet, I guess we can stay on that theme... the first surgery I ever had (and only one until this year - stupid gallbladder) was to have a bunion removed. They literally cut a pie shaped wedge (small, okay?) out of the bone to make the toe straight so the bunion wouldn't grown back. And my brother thought since they'd "cut my toe off" that if he pulled on it it would come off. Thankfully he didn't try!

I hereby tag the following people to do either of these memes if they haven't already.
Mrs. Mustard (only the first one obviously!)
Blue Momma
Not the Queen (who lives in my neck of the woods!)

These are a few randomly selected bloggers I like. If I didn't pick you, it's not because I don't like you! You can do it too, just come back and let me know you did!


  1. I liked this Meme! I'm a leftie too and I also am a barefooter! LOL
