  • I love the qualities you look for in friends, they are so important. I also have no doubt you will get to do all those things you want to in life – a year in Capri sounds idyllic. I’d like to spend a year in France. Hope we both get to do it!

  • You say no? How? Please tell me how!!

    Oh, and didja know I’m a closet Dead Head?

  • I was thinking “where does she get time to do the 8 things she’s passionate about”?….. then I read #8… Making To-Do lists / Organization 🙂
    You are awesome 😉

  • Good meme 🙂

  • Meleah


    I hope we both get or dream vacations too. And, being that you posses many of the qualities I look for in friends, you can see why I am attracted to your blog and developing a friendship with you.


    No. (just like that) Its easy. Say it with me… “No.”

    LOVE THE DEAD. (No need to be all closeted about that one!)


    I live by my damn lists. And, it’s about STRICT scheduling.


    Thanks! For ONCE I didn’t tag you…and THIS happens to be the one you like. Damn it.

  • Thanks for the tag. I will do this one tomorrow, cuz I’m stealing your Christmas one for today. Actually, I guess I should ask you first if it’s ok. Nah, I’m just gonna steal it.

  • Meleah

    Michael C

    You can toad-ily steal the meme from yesterday …but, only as long as you do the meme you were tagged with too! xxoo

  • But of course, but of course. And just for you, I’m gonna do it Jim Carville Cajun Style!!!

  • Meleah

    Michael C

    HA HA HA …

    Everything needs to be done ‘Cajun Style’ from now on!

  • Great list – but how did you get stuck in the 60’s and 70’s for music? I love them all but I do have ten years on you girl….

  • Damn you!

  • Then Cajun style it is. Now, if I could just get me an entourage. Blurg, by the hammer of Thor, I’ve got no entourage.

  • Love the Dead!!! One of Olga’s Favorite Hit’s is “I Need A Miracle!” ooooohhhh……we are gonna have fuuuuuunnnnnn!!!!!

  • Meleah


    I have always LOVED the 60’s n 70’s music. Not sure why. Something about that music moves me.


    HA! HA! HA! HA!

    Aww…C’mon! You know you can slay a meme…better than anyone on the block. I had to do it.

    Michael C

    I think I AM your Entourage!


    One of my favorites too! Yeay! Cheers to a fellow Dead Head.

  • Woo Hoo. Can I be yours? We get cool nicknames, right??

  • I’m surprised only you, me and Jason do the Gravatars – I figured your fun crowd of commenters would be all over that shiznit.

  • Meleah

    Michael C

    Hell Yes. !! ?


    I know me too.

    At least GREG & Jennifer-BFF got in on it. Hmm…I might have to write a whole post inspiring people to sign up and play?

  • Great list! I love your taste in music, movies and books!!!

    You are right about employee self evals, that must be a univeral issue at all copanies. We are doing a survey here and I warned my boss that it will backfire….we’ll see. Its like saying “tell us whats wrong and then we will ignore you and not fix it and you can be even more pissed off”

  • Dood! Your music tastes are toadily all over the place. But I do love me some Mary J. Blige too!

  • Talina

    Oh boy! This was fun to read!

  • You don’t have a boyfriend? Sorry, I one track mind, lol Dood!

  • I have to say I’m not shocked at how many Meme’s you’re tagged for, because you’ve got to be one of the most loyal commenters (and I’m assuming that translates easily into friend) ever! In case you don’t hear it often enough, thanks, because it really does make my day to hear what you have to say. 🙂

  • I just tagged you with a BIG OL’ GINORMOUS MEME at my blog! Go get it!

  • Meleah


    Sweet! Since it IS “meme-week” and I am fresh OUT of memes! Yippe. I wll be by later to check it out, and I will of course participate and post it by tomorrow! xxoo


    So. True. (about the whole evaluation process)


    Yes, my music tastes are VERY diverse. MJB is one of my female IDOLS. I can’t get enough of her. I was soooo lucky to see her in concert last summer. I was BLOWN AWAY.


    I haven’t had a BOYFRIEND…or even been ON A DATE in over a YEAR.



    Well, if you are on my DAILY READS that means I REALLY READ YOUR BLOG…EVERYDAY. (and I always comment…otherwise how would you KNOW I read it). I am glad you enjoy my comments / visits to your blog. You tell wonderful stories about what it’s like for us ‘single’ gals.

  • I could have copied a lot of what you wrote down for my own. We are so much alike…

    Capri. Yes! I loved it there. And you can take the traiin north and come to visit me in Vernazza in Cinque Terre where I’ll be living and tending to my little garden of grape vines and lemon trees. We’ll be all Italianoed by the end of it.

  • YaY! Nice job. I’m officially adopting Sofa King as one of my frequent fliers. It could replace a few of my raunchy ones. People would wipe their brows in relief. And I would LOVE to live on Capri. So beautiful. I have a book I need to finish, too. When the hell will we find time to do that? Hell, the J.O.B. is cutting into my blogging time. I still can’t figure out how you get all this done. I may have to go back to making lists myself. *sigh* But keep making vids of your family, ’cause they’re hilarious!

  • Meleah


    I know. We are CRAZY alike. I AM ALL OVER visiting YOU. Thats a PROMISE I intend to keep.


    You make me smile.

    Sofa King is taking over my office.

    I love that the internet is using DOOD and SOFA KING. Here’s hoping they will be universal terms one day.

    Time to WRITE the BOOK? Even I cant get that into my perfectly scheduled lists. Im working on it though. Where there is a WILL there is a WAY.

    I have no idea how I get EVERYTHING DONE. I must have a clone running around shouldering half the load.

    Ill NEVER stop making family videos.


  • Mary J. Blige is sofa king awesome! And so are you!!

  • Sofa King?
    Who’s the King? 🙂

  • Meleah


    Hellz yes she is! And SO ARE YOU!!!!!!!!


    ha ha ha … you are too cute…

    There is no “King”

    its my way of saying “so fucking”

    Example: Mary J Blidge is SOFA KING (so fucking) awesome.

  • Lis

    You’re welcome to come clean my place any time. I hate cleaning. HATE, I tell you.

    That reminds me, I still owe you one meme!

  • Meleah


    Your ALIVE! YEAY.

    I would so clean for you.

  • Very good replies…I especially like what you learned last year…looks like it was a very good year!

  • Meleah


    yeah… It was a TOUGH year for me..but things are looking UP…finally.
