  • Your awake? I though that I was the only night Owl around. I just posted something too.

    You lived at all those places? Wow!

  • My Five would should and scare your readers. That was great. Have a great day.

  • Re: “Five Things On My To Do List Today?

    Read Your Blogs”

    Yeah… You’re a BLOG-A-HOLIC!

  • Jay

    Mmm … coffee ice cream! YUM!

    Wow, you’ve been a stripper and pole dancer? I’m going to check out that link, because I’m curious as to what that is actually like to do. It sounds kind of glamorous and a whole lot of No Fun At All at the same time.

    I can see how it wouldn’t be that great for your self-esteem …

    You’ve certainly travelled around, too – I think we need to hear more about the Dominican Republic. Oh – you have a link for that too! Excellent! 🙂

  • Meleah

    Yeah I sure have lived all over.
    I pre-wrote this at night so that it shows up before I am really awake.

    The Girl You DO Bring Home to Momma:
    Oh Come On! You can tell me!!

    Ricardo B:
    Yes I Am.

    You can click the link to the DR and see all the photos.
    You can click the link to that time in my life….but that’s just my two shitty rough drafts of chapter 1 & 2. REVISED edition to follow. Its way too much to explain in a little old comment. Thus needing to write it as a book!

  • Love the texture of your meme, of your past.

  • Interesting reading.. reminds me I was tagged for this one but I’m really having difficulty doing it..

  • The five great things I know about Meleah:
    1. You respond to every comment here – it brings me back every time.
    2. You visit my site, comment, and really add to the discussion.
    3. You speak from the heart.
    4. You are not afraid to be real in what you write.
    5. You are one awesome lady!

    That’s what’s in my five…

  • You are an amazing woman and I just love ya to death!

  • Ditto what Lance said!

  • Just when I thought I knew you… DAMN, Grrl! Okay, I’ll take this and run with it in my post tomorrow.


  • I’m in danger of snapping my neck, cause I’m agreeing with Lance & Employee No. 3699 & nodding my head profusely! What always shines through in this blog & her comments is that Meleah is an awesome lady with more character in her pinky finger than most people have in their entire body. She has spunk, she has zest, she has vigour, she is honest & sincere —–and you got to admit she is hot! I have suggested that she change her blog title to Momma Mia Hot Mamma!!

    Seriously Meleah, I love u! Thru & thru.

  • Wow. Is Lance single?!

  • I agree with Lance as well, all except #2 cause I don’t think you’ve visited me. Understnadable, tho – you’ve obviously got thousands of others that you visit & there’s only so much time in the day… 😉

  • Oh no!!! “UnderstNAdable”????? WTF is wrong with me???


  • Boy, when you get through this, you’ve got to work on that Five Favorite Treats list…is that why you are so damn skinny? I know, bad joke.

    I’ll be ready for your edits. Maybe that will put a fire under my ass too…


  • what are rice crackers?

  • All right, here it goes:

  • cmk

    Hey, if you SAW me you would KNOW how much I like junk food. 😉

  • You’ve come a long way in 10 years! It’s a great achievement, you should be proud of yourself.

    10 years ago I had a full time job with full benefits. I wasn’t that much into debt. I didn’t have depression issues. I was closer to my family. Meleah, I’m going in the wrong direction!!! I’ve been slowly losing ground ever since my father died & I’ve had depression issues. It’s dragged my whole life down. I didn’t realize how much until this Meme. Wow! Ain’t that a kick in the head? ;o(

  • Meleah

    I knew you were married!
    Still, thank you so much for your words.

    Aw, honey!
    I bet you are NOT as HALF as bad as YOU think you are.

    I’m not all roses and peaches over here honey.
    but this meme was good for me to see how much my life has changed/improved.

    Great post

  • Roshan has tagged me too so I guess I’d better get around to doing it. I also agree with Lance. You are always very welcoming and just so kind and supportive. I think you make all your readers feel that each one of us is important to you. And that is a wonderful thing. Thank you, hon. You are the best!

  • I still don’t know what a “meme” is. Do I want one? Should I be offended that I haven’t gotten one? 🙂

  • Meleah

    Wow. Thank you for playing,
    You’ve visited some KICK ASS places.
    And, you’ve had some cool jobs!
    Are you a full-time WRITER now?

    Oh cool. I cant wait to see your answers!
    “I think you make all your readers feel that each one of us is important to you.”
    Thats because YOU ALL ARE!

    Dave Q:
    A meme is a series of questions that one bloggers starts and passes on by tagging other bloggers to answer them. No need to be offended if you’ve never been asked to participate in one.

    In fact, I tag you now.

    Simply answer all of these questions on YOUR blog, with a link by to my blog as to why you are doing this meme.

  • I love reading this one when other people do it. Hate doing it myself. I’ve lived a sheltered live and find it hard to come up with 5 things for most of those questions.

  • Whaaattttt? Sue me then 🙂 We do have this in common – Putting My Foot In My Mouth, lol

  • Meleah

    Really? Maybe we can come up with different questions for you?

    I was just playin’ with you.
