MeMeMeMeMe...... again

Kathleen Marie at Stranded in the Mountains tagged me with a short meme. I almost didn’t get to it because I stopped to drool over her recipe for Berry French Toast.

When do bloggers find time to cook? (See my recipe for peanut butter and raisin sandwiches.)

Anyway – getting my mind out of the calorie gutter…and back to the five questions. They are very deep, but as usual, I stayed in the shallow end of the pool. And please - any of you, feel free to post on your blog and invite me over for the read.

As a child, what did you always say you wanted to be when you grew up?

I knew I was going to be a Princess. I prepared to sleep on twenty mattresses and complain about the cherry pit beneath them. The wicked Queen Mother would have to admit that I was royal and I would marry the Prince. Lately, I have been thinking about that Princess Job again.

If you had to choose one thing that you've always dreamed of doing, what would it be? What is stopping you?

The Tornado Chase tours in Oklahoma and Texas have been something I have always wanted to do. No one could pay me to bungee jump, or rock climb, or even go sky diving. However, chasing a funnel cloud has captured my inner adrenalin junkie. It remains number one on my “To-Do” list. Unfortunately, I have a much longer “Doo-Doo” list that hampers my fantasies.

Who is your biggest fan? Who is always encouraging you to be all that you can be?

The hubby is my most ardent supporter. He keeps me grounded. He keeps my hopes in focus. When I need to be safe, I just slip into his arms.

What book has most impacted your life to date?

Here I am all grown old up, having sampled numerous genres of literature, and yet I still cherish the very first book I held in my chubby little hands.

“Marcus the Monkey.”

There are no earth shattering or life changing reasons. It was just the first of many reading adventures over the years that open up and swallow me whole. (You have to grab my shoulder and shake me back to reality to get me out of there.)

5. When are you the happiest?

When Friday is a payday just before a three-day weekend. Hey! That’s almost here!

(Oh… you guys know it’s really my family.)

If you get a chance go back and read Kathleen Marie’s list. I want to be her when I grow up.

I lived in "Tornado Alley" for over 4 decades and can tell you there's only one thing scarier than chasing a tornado...being chased by one. Driving along with 2 small children and my mom, watching that "tail" drop out of the cloud and heading our way, was one of the scariest moments of my life. Bailing out of the car in pouring rain, hail, and wind was a difficult decision, but we didn't want to go flying that day. Not in the car anyway. If you really want to do this, I have connections in OK. You can go stay with them during Tornado Season. I'll stay home.

Aww, you are blessed to have such a good hubby.

Tornado chasing? I wouldn't have guessed that one. Give me a call in spring--we occassionally have some good ones here in Wisconsin ;)

(Thanks for keeping up with me on my site!)

How funny you should say you want to chase a tornado. I just came from my friend Horizon in Scotland and you should see the video she posted of the storm they're having. Actually it's more like hurricane than tornado, but winds that are unreal.
I always enjoy your light take on memes!

GET OUT! Chasing tornadoes has always been a dream of mine, too! Come on, let's do it! I'll drive!
Vicki said…
You want to chase tornado's? Come stay with me in March. We can chase and chase and chase! They pass right by my house.
Tornado chasing... no thank you. I love it when the wind blows but that is a bit much. Thank you for posting the 5 items and I think I will do them on my blog so come on over y'all.
