The MeMe list from Mommy Want Vodka- Thank you Aunt Becky!

So, there's this great blog called Mommy Wants Vodka (totally jealous of the name, because I want vodka too!) and the woman who writes it has made a MeMe list every year since 2005.  This is the revised edition, my version- so fun! 
1) What does Meme mean?
MeMe is what I say when I jump up and down waving my arms when someone asks "who wants shoes?"

2) 2011 – Was it all you’d hoped it would be?
Not really, although I did get to take six months off and get paid for it!  But I did NOT get a new job in 2011 and my husband's anxiety about that is wearing me out!

3) Did you watch the Royal Wedding?
Only the recap, because I'm A.D.D. like that!

4) Where are your pants?
Ummm, I don't know.  I hardly ever know.  I literally run around the house yelling, " I lost my pants again, where the hell are my damn pants?!!"  My family is starting to worry a little.

5) Is Justin Bieber human or some sort of robot?
I personally don't care too much either way- my seven year old daughter loves him to distraction and a wonderful friend of mine managed to get him to sign an 8x10 glossy to my daughter and the look on her face Christmas morning was priceless.  So, even though his fashion is questionable, so was mine when I was 17, so who cares?

6) If you had only one thing to wish for this coming year, what would it be?
Well, lottery win is a big wish of mine for all times, so this year, I'd wish for a really great job I love where I can be creative and wear my crazy on my sleeve without getting in trouble and make some big cashish! ( or decent, I'd be pretty happy with decent...)

7) Would you call yourself a “social media maven?”
Hunh, that's a stumper!  I have 5 followers on my blog and am up to 47 followers on Twitter, so I'm gonna have to go with no on that one.  But I'd really like to be when I grow up.  Or maybe next year?

8 ) If you had to take three things to a desert island (let’s assume you have ample food and water), what would they be?
my Kindle Fire
my makeup Caboodle ( that's right bitches, original from the 80s)! Because I need makeup always
sunscreen with SPF 1000, because I'm an Irish redhead and need it more than air on a desert island

9) If you had the ability to banish certain offenses to an island where they would be rehabilitated into being okay again, what would those offenses be?
talking with your mouth full
swearing at work
buying sweaters in every color

10) How do YOU think the air conditioner works?
I think the Abomidable Snowman blows into a box and sends it off get a fan installed in the front.  His breath is always freezing cold, no matter what, and he earns his living selling it for air conditioning.  He buys sushi and fudge with the money and also pays for his dental work.  What? You thought Herbie the Elf works for free??

11) Do you ACTUALLY think you can make money blogging?
Not really, I mean, I know people do...but I don't think I'm those people!  But hopefully it will lead to other things!

12) There’s a lot of talk in the blog world about microblogging (The Tumblr, The Twitter, The Facebook) taking over traditional blogs. Do you think that’s the case?
No, they aren't the same at all.  I think they all serve a purpose and that's fine, but I think blogging is for those of us who are HARDCORE yo!

13) If you could give one piece of advice to your younger self, what would it be?
Wear mini skirts and bikinis while you can, you'll get really fat knees later in life!

14) If you could’ve told yourself this time last year one thing, what would it be?
Hang on, it's going to be a bumpy ride- and stash some cash away in savings instead of buying more shoes!

15) If you could have one Super Power, what would it be?
I'd like to say something amazing that could save the world, but I've always wanted to be able to fly so I"m going to have to go with that since I only get one.  But if I got two...well that would be a different story!

16) If you could do one thing you can’t currently do, and do it well, what would it be?
Play the cello.  It's an amazingly soulful sound and I'd love to be able to express myself that way!

17) What surprises you about yourself?
That I don't have a housekeeper and a cook.  When I was little, my Mom tried to teach me to cook and I told her I didn't need to know how, I'd have someone to do that for me!  Not sure where I got that idea or where I thought I'd get that kind of money, but I was convinced and didn't learn to cook until after college.

18) What was your favorite blog post/tweet of the past year?
Well, I'm pretty fond of all of mine... this is a MeMe list, right?  But may have to go with Jen Lancaster's Breaking Down Breaking Dawn  because I love Twilight and I love how Jen plays with dolls!

19) Do you REALLY think “Purple Should Be A Flavor?”
Purple is a flavor.  Anything that looks purple tastes purple.  And I'd also like some purple vodka please!

20) If you could make one outlandish wish for 2012, what would it be?
I'm going to wish for a multi billion dollar product launch or a lottery win of hundreds of millions of dollars so my sister and I can live in the same city because we had the best long New Year's weekend ever!  Either way, it's going to be VEGAS UP, bitches!

  1. Number 12- toitally correct. Bloggers still ave an attention span longer than a commercial! And 19-I agree. Even the smell of purple. Yum.

  2. Okay, the computer was acting weird! I meant to post that purple is the best and has always been my favorite flavor! What flavor popsicle do you want Erin? Purple. Even my daughter's smencils have a purple one that is totally the best BY FAR! And purple Bubble Yum is a delicacy that I need to find again...
