Tag---You're It!

   
There's a fun, old school game circulating the blogosphere known as "tagging," and I've been tagged by my dear friends Sarah at http://thesadderbutwisergirl.com and Ellen at http://badwordmama.blogspot.com.  In this particular game, I'm required  to give 5 responses to a set of 7 different questions. I've also been asked to select 5 bloggers to tag back and play along.
     As you know, Meno Mama likes to bend the rules. Even as a child I strayed from the games on the playground and could usually be found eating M&M's behind the shrubs with my chocolate hoarding cohorts. Is it any wonder why I never won the Presidential Physical Fitness Award in P.E.?
     I'll play this game of tag, but you may not get the responses you're expecting. If you're nice and play along, I just might share my M&M's with you.


5 THINGS I HAVE A PASSION FOR:

1.  Squirrels (Duh! If you don't already know this about me, then you've been living under a rock).
2.  Wine. No wait, tequila. Or rum. Vodka.....okay, any libation will do...
3.  Nutella (Manna from heaven. I'm almost out---please send some now).
4.  Blogging (In between Facebooking).
5.  Beer drinking gnomes


5 THINGS I WANT TO DO BEFORE I DIE:

1.  Buy an RV and stalk Guy Fieri as he eats his way through the heart of America.
2.  Go to Oktoberfest in Germany.
3.  Publish dozens of books to keep generations of my family laughing.
4. See the Titanic before it completely disintegrates at the bottom of the ocean.
5.  Buy Walt Disney World and rename it "Meno Mama's World." Espresso and jello shots will be sold on every corner for weary adults.


5 THINGS I SAY A LOT:

1.  "Nobody answer the door or the phone."
2.  "Shut the eff up."
3.  "Flush your re-wipes."
4.  "Brush your damn teeth!"
5.  "I didn't do it and it's not my fault."



5 BOOKS OR MAGAZINES I'VE READ LATELY:

1.  Anything written by Erma Bombeck.
2.  The Colonoscopy Quarterly
3.  10 Creative ways To Hide Your Chocolate Obsession
4.  The Squirrel Whisperer Handbook
5.  10 Steps To Beating Your Facebook Addiction


5 FAVORITE MOVIES:

1.  The Secret Garden
2.  Somewhere In Time
3.  Titanic
4.  Meet Joe Black
5. Our own home movie, "The Night The Gerbils Took Over Georgia."


5 PLACES I WOULD LOVE TO TRAVEL TO:

1.  Scotland, to trace my crazy, warrior ancestors.
2.  Bora Bora, so I can drink my fill of Mai Tais in a lazy hammock until I pass out.
3.  A Walmart that actually has people in well-fitting clothes and an I.Q. higher than a llama.
4.  Dorothy's Take Me Back To Oz winery in Wichita, Kansas.
5.  Sven's Svunhaus in "Sveden."


5 BLOGGERS I CHOOSE FOR TAG---YOU'RE IT! :  *This time I'm tagging all the gents out there who write some of the funniest blogs I've ever read.

  2. "Nobody answer the door or phone." My FAVE! I may have used this one once or twice. And thanks for the gentleman blogger list...I'll have to check these out! By the way, I know I always tell you this, but here it is again: I love, love, love when you give me awards. So I've got Squirrely Blogger Award on my list of things to write, and one of these days, I will get to it. It might be months from now, but it WILL be gotten to! Also, I'm cooking up something for my guest post...it's taking me a little longer because I'm trying to get all the F bombs out of it. Haha!!

  3. I probably need to borrow your book on how to beat my FaceBook addiction. Some days I actually get the DT's. Oh and let me know if you ever find that upscale Walmart. I imagine it's called Target though.

    1. You got that right! Walmart is fun just to people watch. I could write entire blog posts based on the things I see there.

  5. You are, without a doubt, a Squirrel's best friend.

    But "don't answer the door"? What if it's a squirrel?

  9. I'm right there with you on the Nutella. I found it in Paris a year and a half ago. I had never tried it until I had it at a crepe stand by the Eiffel Tower. After I got home I was obsessed. I tried it with everything. When I started eating healthier in February I hid it from me, but everytime I see it or hear about it I want it. Oh no, you got me started again!!

  10. Love Eli... He is one of my fave bloggers... And the only Walmart that has people with acceptable attire is the Walmart inside a nudist colony, and I'm pretty sure only the saggy of the saggist would frequent the place....

    1. I would be scarred for life if I had to walk into a Walmart and see that....

  11. Nobody answer the door and phone...I say that a lot too! Really can't stand it when the kids answer the phone and then give me the telemarketer. And love Coach Daddy - can't wait to see his responses!

  12. Oh, I'd love to go to Meno Mama's World, so hurry up and sort it out mate. I can just imagine it would be one hell of a crazy place that will keep me laughing for days, so make sure you also have a 'cool-out zone area' too, ha ha ha.

    Loved 'Nobody answer the door or phone'. We all like that peace and quiet time MM, especially when you're busy indulging your passion of wine tasting and nutella eating whilst blogging, ha ha ha. Who would want to be disturbed during those hours?
    Great post mate.

    1. Ohhhh RPD I LIKE the idea of a cool-out zone! We could take naps and then jump right back into the jello shot shenanigans!

  13. A squirrel obsession? I don't know why that makes me smile so much--I guess because they are overlooked in the rodent/small mammal world. And they are pretty cute. Thanks for the laugh!

  16. Hey Meno Mom, Norway and Egypt are on my list. I hope Egypt doesn't have a civil war and destroy all the ancient antiquities. We have a different taste in movies. I'm a Sci-Fi nut. If Star Wars(the first one), Alien, Aliens, and Avatar aren't own the list than we can't talk. LOL.
