AW Monday Meme

Dawno picked up a meme at Halspacejock’s site for this week’s jogging of our brains. Here it is.

Yikes! Yesterday was Monday! I was off work for a 3-day weekend and I think it just seemed like Sunday...so I forgot to do my Meme! What got my attention was that I wandered over to Halspacejock's site and he had a meme, so I 'nicked' it with a little editing.

Last Live Music Show Seen: Let’s see, I really have to rack my brain for this. It’s been a long time. I went a Temptations concert. Or, how about Three Dog Night.

Last CD Purchased: Melodies of the Heart – The best of pan flute.

Last Thing Cooked: Beef vegetable soup.

Last New Thing Eaten: Hot Pockets. I’m not real wild about them.

Last Thing Bought: A gallon of milk.

Last Gift Received: A box of copy paper and crazy looking head massager called The Sqwiggler. My daughters know me well. I print out a lot of interesting articles and The Sqwiggler is supposed to be great for relieving headaches. (By the way, it works great!)

Last Piece of Clothing Bought or Received as a Gift: A Steelers Football cap.

Last Embarrassing Experience: Having a book loaned to me; taking forever to read it; ending up loving the book and wanting to buy it; offering to purchase it from the loaner or replace it with a book she wants of equal value; still wanting to replace it but she’s too kind hearted to allow me to do that. :)

Last Totally New Experience: Meeting four people from AW, all of which I consider very good friends.

Last Foreign Country Visited, if any: Never been out of the US.

Last Big Achievement: Completing my sixth novel.

For this meme I'll tag Esther, Andrea, and Pam. Anyone who wants to jump in, consider yourself tagged.

Make me smile. Leave a comment...

You need to get out of the country, Joanne. Canada, Mexico, the Bahamas... easy peasy, and a chance to feel first hand what it's like to be a goofy foreign tourist with a camera around your neck.

Well, Mark, I know what it's like to be goofy person with a camera around my neck, but I can't make it out of my front yard. ROFL Never been outside the US.

I'd even take a walk by the river right now. That would be like being in the Bahamas to me. ;)
