Another "MeMe" Meme

Adoro tagged me for a meme:

1. What do you hope to accomplish with your blog?

"World Peace, Mr. Parks."

Persuade a dissident Roman Catholic that they may be wrong by using my prior experiences and what I learned as examples of what not to do or believe about Our Faith.

2. Are you a spiritual person?

I equate this question with the folks who never go to church but claim to be "spiritual". However, yes, I would say I'm spiritual.

3. If you were stranded on a deserted island, what three things would you want to have with you?

Drinking Water
Box of Matches

4. What’s your favorite childhood memory?

I have so many, I can't pick just one. Probably, any of them with my late brother. I would say spending the summers with my Grandparents and my brother at my Grandparents lake home provided most of my favorite childhood memories.

5. Are these your first (tagging) memes?


8 random facts.

1. I'm an exceptional hunting spotter.
2. I have to flee the urban jungle about once/month. My ideal living situation would probably be a Unabomber like cabin. All the books I want to read with a supply of water and food and I'm good to go.
3. I biked almost 1000 miles in each of the last two summers.
4. I have a caustic wit. If you've been reading my blog for a while you may have figured this out already, but I'm even worse in person.
5. I'm a very early riser. 4:00 a.m.
6. If I'm having a party, I invite far too many people-in Regency England a "crush". I hate to exclude anyone so I tend to invite everyone.
7. I'm WILD for dancing. This is a family trait. I can get into a lot of trouble, but I can't help myself once the music starts.
8. I surround myself with people that challenge me.

I'm breaking the rules! I'm not going to tag 8 people so sue me! If you want to do this meme, you should! Once a rebel, still a rebel.

Oooh! Oooh! Pick me! Pick me!



OK, seriously, you have to check out this blog:

This is the one I linked your name to on my Soap Opera post. And yes, it's a parody. :-)

I thought in fulfillment of this meme that you might have let loose with a few tips as to where your hunting and fishing "hot spots" are.

#4,#5,#7 means we would have so much fun together - I have to do more of #3 to get in shape for #7 though. #6 works for me, then I can disapear without being missed. Yeah, I've been known to duck out of my own parties.

I can't hunt though - I would keep thinking I was killing some animal's family member. So shoot me instead.

I know a church or two where they might appreciate your dancing. I used to be an early riser, then I had kids...I try to get as much of the little sleep I'm afforded! And, my father-in-law is a dedicated hunter/fisherman. Always is out hunting or fishing. He could use your help, though. Never manages to get a deer even though they come through his yard and eat his plants :)
BTW: Just completed this meme myself, my first. Thanks, Ray.

** trying to picture Cathy in a tutu...or a formal dance costume...or tights with either... ***

I'm sorry. I'm just not seeing it. I keep getting an image like the one in Terry's blog from a few days ago. I can't see you there at all.

Not saying you're not a good dancer, but I just can't see with the tutu in the way!

Adoro: Fear not, I don't DO tutu!
