Tag! I'm it.

As a relative newcomer to the wonderful world of blog, I was unfamiliar with the concept of "tagging" and "memes." Now that I have been tagged by Orange Blossom Goddess and asked to complete a meme of my own, I feel greatly enlightened.

1. Five minutes to yourself; how would you spend them, ideally?
Being thankful for all the good in my life. I spend far too much time being negative.

2. Five bucks to spend right now; how would you spend it?
Candy, candy and more candy. (I've been having a terrible craving for sweets lately.)

3. Five items in your house you could part with, right now, that you hadn't thought of already?
I don't suppose I can name any of Scott's things?

4. Five items you absolutely, positively, could never part with in your house?
I don't count my pets as items, so let's see, what else is there?

  • The tooth pillow that my mom made for me when I was little,

  • the pen sketches of Strawberry Shortcake that my brother drew for me when he was ten,

  • the bookcase that my dad and I built together,

  • the beautiful gate that Scott crafted for my 31st birthday,

  • and, of course, my photo collection.

5. Five words you love?
I love the way my brother pronounces "corn." Aside from that, no special words are coming to mind at the moment so I'm going to borrow Heather's method and open a dictionary... Eden, nonconformist, meander, leisurely, sierra. Granted, for most of those words it's the meaning that appeals to me more than the sound.

Careful, once you go to the darkside of memes, you may never come back! :P
