My first meme

99 Things you aught to have done

I found this ridiculously cool blog and decided "what the hell". I'll give a meme a go. Since I had NO idea what a meme was, I had to start by looking it up. If your nosey like me, click here.

Start by giving credit to the one you robbed. Thank you Unmitigated. Then copy and past the questions below. Bold the ones you've done, add justifications, explanations, near-misses. In other words, blather on. Something my 5 stalkers know I'm good at.

1.Started your own blog- This will be my only one. I can barely keep up with this one.

2.Slept under the stars - Yes, on the beach at Corpous Christi. It's where I learned to loath crunchy oatmeal and snakes thanks to my big brother.

3.Played in a band - Yup, I'm the bass player for "All Hail Sally" our family Rock Band seen here. I'm also the band's photographer and videographer which is why you don't see me playing.

4.Visited Hawaii - not yet. I get to go in April of 2012 for my 25 wedding anniversary. Good thing I get to go before the world comes to an end 12/21/12 eh?

5.Watched a meteor shower - nope, never had an interest. Kinda weird considering I'm a sky freak and all...

6.Given more than you can afford to charity - that's between me and God.

7.Been to Disneyland - only for one day but it was a great day. Even though I was hung over.

8.Climbed a mountain - not yet, but it is on my bucket list

9.Held a praying mantis - no but I've seen one

10.Sang a solo - I do it all the time. In my head.

11.Bungee jumped - not yet, but it's another item on my bucket list

12.Visited Paris - no, and I never will. I like the French about as much as they like Americans.

13.Watched a thunder and lightning storm - I'm a sky freak and I live in the lighting capital of the world. Um, that would be a yes. Now if I could get a good photo of that, I would pee with joy

14.Taught yourself an art from scratch - photography & wrting (trust me, my form of writing is self taught. NO teacher would recomend the way I do it)

15.Adopted a child - oh hell no. I've screwed up my own enough thankyouverymuch

16.Had food poisoning - Yes, that's what happens when you dress a turkey then chew your nails. Yes, I washed my hands, just not well enough apparently. That was a fun Thanksgiving.

17.Walked to the top of the Statue of Liberty - no but I have walked to the top of the Washington Monument. does that count?

18.Grown your own vegetables - yes, back when I hated vegetables. How twisted is that?

30.Watched a sunrise or sunset- many but never enough.
