Oy Vey - I'm IT

Batya of Me-ander (and several other blogs) has tagged me with this meme . She and her significant other over at My Right Word (among others) are my oldest friends who blog. They both have been friends of mine for longer than anyone wants to admit and both are experienced blogger. So Winkie consider yourself tagged.

Now to the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.


1. I am not a self-starter!
I started blogging because Batya had her blog set to receive comments only from other bloggers. So I dutifully opened a blog to leave a comment.

2. I don't always pay attention to detail! Almost immediately I forgot what I called my blog and had to open another one. So somewhere there is a orphaned blog looking for a blogger.

3. I don't mind admitting I don't know everything! I have been seeing people do memes and although I knew what people do when they do one I never knew what the word itself meant. But isn't that why the good lord gave us Google? So here it is:
The term Internet meme is a neologism used to describe a catchphrase or concept that spreads quickly from person to person via the Internet. ... (courtesy of: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Meme)
which sort of sounds like the flu, doesn't it?

4. I have been in Israel a long time! How long? So long that I remember when folks here in Israel waited (sometimes 7 or more) years for telephone lines to their homes. When you wanted to tell someone something you went over and left a note on their door (or maybe actually found them at home).

5. You can see me in a movie with Yehoram Gaon. I am in Independence Park in Jerusalem baby-sitting a bunch of lovely blond kids. One of them is doing a somersault on the grass. Today she is a doctor.

6. I am a really objective judge of children. My grandchildren are the best looking and most intelligent bunch of kids on the planet.

7. I can't carry a tune very well. But that doesn't stop me from singing.

8. I can't draw very well either. That has stopped me from drawing.

9.
I have never been to Mexico! But my grandfather's brother went there and I do have some cousins there.

10. I hope no one ever tags me again. I have run out of concepts to spread quickly over the Internet.

Like I said, I tag My Right Word, Life In Israel, In the Pink, Frum Satire and three others who I will have to think of after I post this.

Risa, thanks. I think I reacted with a gevalt the first time and never act grateful enough.

This tagging business isn't as bad as chain letters. Nobody will threaten you with... lice and dandruff if you don't send it to the required number of people within the next 18 minutes. And you won't turn into chametz either.

You forget, my dear, that I asked you to blog on my blog to keep it busy/active/alive when I went to NY one summer. That was your first post.

Yes that was my first post on the SECOND blog, after I didn't remember the first one's name.

what are the rules, if I decide to do this?
just use the categories you used and add my personal muse on it?
