Another MeMe

What is meme, you ask?
A unit of cultural information, such as a cultural practice or idea, that is transmitted verbally or by repeated action from one mind to another.

This 'tag' comes from Gerry at Sewing Southpaw (1). Here are the rules if you are tagged.

1. Link to your tagger and post these rules.
2. Share 7 facts about yourself: some random, some weird.
3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post and list their names (linking to them).
4. Let them know they’ve been tagged by leaving a comment at their blogs.

About me (2):

  1. I'm NOT a social butterfly. Groups of people (unless it's a BIG group - show, conference, etc. where I can be lost in the crowd) tend to bring out the shyness in me. I've been described as a loner or hermit.

  2. My needs are not great and my pleasures are simple.

  3. Procrastinator... and it seems to get worse as I mature. One of my favorite says is, The Older I Get, The More Like Me I Become. Maybe this is why my mom says I'm always late...

  4. In the last year I've lost about 45 pounds. If you stop by often, you already know that, but I'm still proud of it.

  5. I love muscadines! They are a grape-like fruit that used to grow wild at my folks place, but no more. Sushi is right there at the top of the list these days! Something weird I like once in a while is a peanut butter and thinly sliced onion sandwich. Don't say Yuck until you've tried it!
  6. I'm an only child who has an only child!

  7. I have four and three quarter years before I can retire (from here) from my State job with retirement benefits, but who's counting?? July, 2012.

(3) As always, if you've done this recently or just don't have the inclination or the time, don't worry. I won't be offended, angry, or 'hurt'.

Hi Charlene,
I just did this challenge in May (and you can go read them if you dare), and my answers wouldn't be any different today, so I'll pass this time. But I do love stuff like this, so keep me in mind for next time! And thanks for the definition of meme. I've always wondered what it was, and now I know!

Charlene, your peanut butter and onion sandwich is sooooo familiar!! My mom ate them and added dill pickles now and then:) Thanks for sharing.

Ah, a fellow hermit! I have always heard of muscadine wine and my Mom used to make muscadine jelly when we were in Arkansas where they grew. We share being procrastinators, although I am trying to not be so bad. i have never understood why people make such a big deal about being late! Lol! Now peanut butter and onions, hmmm, I don't know about that. Congrats on the weight loss! I'd be proud too!

I love the before and after pictures - what a difference! You look so much more vibrant in the after picture. The blonde really suits you!
