I've been "tagged" for a "meme"

So I'm not completely up to par with my blogger lingo. A couple of times I've been tagged for a "meme" (can anyone tell me what a "meme" is....what does it mean?! Is it cuz it's all about me, me?). So this one is just a list of several things about me that you may not have known....some are weird or surprising, I know. :-) And it's definitely not a complete list. Feel free to do it on your blog, too, I love learning those quirky or fun or new little facts about my friends!

I love the smell of fresh play dough (the store-bought play-doh brand)

I was the drum major (field conductor) of our high school marching band.

I always take my eggs out of the carton in some sort of symmetrical way.

I'd love to go to a U2 concert some day.

I like to jump rope.

I'm always playing some sort of tune on my fingers...sort of like constantly playing piano.

It feels really weird to put my left leg in my pants first or my left sock on first, etc.

I REALLY like the Gilmore Girls and wish sometimes I could be in their world. :-)

Bet you never knew I could make that face!

Or wear my hair so fashionably!

According to the web… though I'm still not sure what "MEME" means!

Uh, What's A Meme?
Some of us out there don't know a meme from a hole in the ground but that's ok. I'll bring you up to speed.

The short definition is "a unit of cultural information, such as a cultural practice or idea, that is transmitted verbally or by repeated action from one mind to another."

However, that definition is incomplete as it relates to an Internet meme which "occurs when something relatively unknown becomes increasingly popular, often quite suddenly, through the mass propagation of media content made feasible by the Internet" technology.

I do the same thing with eggs! I think it's so they're not unbalanced when I pull them out of the fridge and I won't drop them. But then, when I eat M&M's, I have to eat them so the colors are all "even", so maybe the eggs aren't a logic thing, but instead some weird OCD thing I have going on! I'm glad I'm not alone. :)

LOVELY pictures, my friend! :)

Michelle, I love you! I didn't know about the eggs. How did I miss that in college? I do the same thing and it seems I am always trying to balance out where Tyler last took eggs. (The unknown drawbacks of having a husband who cooks:)!)

I love your tapping fingers, but am sad you didn't mention your wiggly toes.

Okay, am I the only one who messes up the "word verification" when I am trying to comment. It happens to me all the time!

Knew you changed your walls, but didn't know you changed your hair. Love that color!

Byranie...that first pic with the fish is at your house! :-) Right after Micah was born...wow, I'm surprised he isn't scared of me.

Michelle, I enjoyed reading these things about you and took you up on your invitation to do one myself. The funny thing is I feel like I know you a little better when I hardly know you at all. What I do know I like and look even more forward to when we meet again.
Okay, that was and eyeful!
