Well, I haven't done a meme in a while, and I was wanting to sit still just now, so here's some of it ;) (From Christie).

5 reasons I don't do Memes (instead of 5 people to tag):

  1. Excruciatingly self-centered. We've already got blogging for that.
  2. Time-wasters (especially if you get addicted)
  3. Desensitize yourself to giving out personal details (generally not a wise thing)
  4. Self perpetuating with or without meaning, like those "a brick will crush your baby if you don't pass it on" chain letters.
  5. A sense of obligation (after all it was a friend who tagged you) that creates an artificial sense of urgency to actually finish something that (frequently) has no meaning to anyone.
Naturally, none of these stop me when I actually want to do one, but when that happens #5 no longer applies (it now has meaning/interest for me), and I avoid #3 and #4.

So that just leaves #1 and #2, which I endure for my own enjoyment. :o)

4 things that should go into Room 101 to be banished from the earth forever:

Child abuse. All forms. (Christie started with mine)

Wife abuse, all forms.
(Okay, this could get unbearably heavy-- moving on to lighter things...)

Foxtail (the plant)

Pee-rings in the lawn

Root rot
(Can you tell I don't like out-door maintenance?)

3 things people do that make you want to shake them violently:

Telling you what you've already said as though it's a brilliant, original idea.

Acting wounded about something they never mentioned bothered them.

Interrupting my reading with 6 things in 20-minutes instead of getting it all out at once.

2 things you find yourself moaning about:

Too many choices!

Wanting to organize my home-life to stay caught up.

1 thing the above answers tell you about yourself:

Um... I'm brilliant, self-centered and lazy? Wait, thats three things.

I dunno. Anybody else have an idea what it says about me?
