Tagged, I'm It!

I've been tagged by Kansas Rose of Prairie Farmeress. So here goes! (This is a tough one.)

  • List 5 weird things about yourself or your pets. (Easy enough!)
  • Answer the Meme.
  • Tag 5 friends and list them.
  • Then these people need to write on their blogs about 5 weird things, state the rules, and tag 5 more people.
  • Don't forget to let the people you tag know by commenting on their blog!


1. Which famous person would you most like to learn that you're descended from?

George Washington. For some reason, I feel a special bond with the man. Not only was I born in his old stomping ground (Olde Towne Alexandria), but I feel at peace whenever I visit Mt. Vernon. Yes, I can see myself keeping an eye on the old family residence (hehe).

2. Which famous person would you hate to learn you're descended from?

Hitler. Ew. Doesn't even warrant a photo.

3. If you could be an ancestor to any famous living person who would it be and why?
Paul McCartney. Hey, if I can't marry the guy, I may as well be related so I can still be close to him! (And I would love to have known Linda personally.)

(Ok, I admit I misinterpreted the question -- "ANCESTOR, a person, typically one more remote than a grandparent, from whom one is descended" but I still like my answer, hehe.)

Now to answer it CORRECTLY:
Mahatma Ghandi, the goodness had to originate somewhere, right?

OK OK , LIGHT'S ON, NO ONE HOME!! LIVING -- as in NOW ALIVE! hehe. I never thought this would be so hard!! LOL! Let me think for a moment longer please.

Alright, I think I have it this time 'round. I would like to be an ANCESTOR to Paloma Picasso. I would hope to instill in my relatives the love of FAMILY and how to treat women with respect. hehe. There, how's that?

4. If you could go back in time and meet any known ancestors of yours, who would it be and why?

My grandmother Jimmie (my mom's mother). She was from the Iroquois tribe; and I would LOVE to learn of my family heritage there! Unfortunately she died when my mom was born and there is only one photo of her (which I can't seem to find, right now).

5. Five weird Things about Me:

1. I sneeze when I pluck my eyebrows.
2. I can't sleep unless I have three pillows. I sleep as follows: One king sized for my head, one king size as my "shield" between me and the hub (can't stand to have anything near my back since I've had three epidurals) and one standard to hug (have always hugged a pillow since my grandma made me a little travel pillow when I was little). If I stay at a hotel, I have to call room service for extra pillows.

3. More than occasionally, street lamps go out when I drive by them at which time I say "Light's Out."

4. I get really bad headaches when a storm is approaching.

5. I can barely stand wearing anything other than jeans. I feel totally out of sorts when I do. (Yes, I found some, finally!)

Now it's Tammy's (when she feels up to it), Robyn's, Shelley's, Sue's, and Beth's turn. Tag, you're it!!

PEA said...

Great meme...loved your answers:-) I've been tagged by this one too...actually have 3 memes to do this week! lol Hugs xox

Janet said...

Loved your answers. I think I'd like to meet your Grandmother Jimmie, too. I'm always fascinated by Native American culture, especially about their art and knowledge of herbs and plants.

Have you been in my neighborhood recently? The street light keeps going out!!

Tammy said...

Well now this was a very interesting meme...which is pronounced mem by the way not me-me like I joke I looked it up wondering who in the world started this stuff and why?? I still don't have a clear answer, just know how to pronounce it correctly...
It's better than what kind of toilet paper and soap do you use anyhow...I will try it, I have some time this evening so I may post it tomorrow or the next day. I'm not too weird ;-D so I'll have to do some thinking...lmbo!!

Sue said...

Thanks for the tag Rosa! You're right that this is one of the tougher ones. Means I have to think a bit!
I'll do it one day next week. (I'm still confused on Paul McCartney and Mahatma Ghandi)...LOL!!

Oh I just love that gorgeous coloured hare you bought, a hare is my favourite wild animal, I collect prints of them. I have never seen anything as lovely as that one. I am not moving over to Beta Blogger yet, heard a few people, saying that the bugs in it are not sorted out yet. Must look into backing up my blog, Rosa I never thought of doing anything like that. Thanks for mentioning it.

Rosa's Yummy Yums said...

Thanks for the meme. So, your grandmother was from the Iroquois tribe? Waow, that great! I've always been interested by the Native Americans and their culture (teachings, knowledge, traditions, art, etc...) yfcjgand would love to have such blood flowing in my veins...

Anonymous said...

Yes, McCartney is my favourite too...I have a theory that good girls like McCartney and rebels like Lennon...hippies like Harrison and only Marge Simpson likes Ringo!

Rosa, I'm so happy that I got to comment today...betablogger still has issues with me!

plain and simple
