All right, I'll play!

I grabbed this off Lynne's blog. Or was it Jayne's? RuthieJ's? I haven't done a meme in a while, so here goes:

I forgot about National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation! I want to change my answer.

The employee safety handbook cracked you up? You're my kind of gal.

If I had my way, I'd wear a sweatshirt every day.

Thanks for playing!

Pablo said...

Ego freaks, eh? I wonder . . .

Deb said...

Lynne- That is getting to be one of those movies we quote lines from.

The handbook was so full of "well, duh!" stuff. One can never be too careful, I guess.

Pablo- Yeah, I just need to get over it. Which I have, pretty much.

Jayne said...

Fun Deb! :c)

I always love to read other people's memes. It helps rounding out the image.

Funny about ego freaks, it's one of the thing that often makes me want to stop blogging.

Madcap said...

I see you and I spend New Year's Eve the same way. It's hard to beat a hot-water bottle and quilts!

I think I'm going to play too. Thanks for passing it along!

RuthieJ said...

Oh Deb, will you go to Ireland and Scandinavia on the same trip? I wanna go along too!

Deb said...

Jayne- This was fun because it didn't have open-ended questions like some memes. It was easier to think of answers.

Robin Andrea- Memes really bring out the human behind the blog.

And it seems blogging brings out egos. I try to ignore them as much as possible.

Madcap- I saw yours, but for some reason I'm unable to leave a comment. You sound like you're frozen! Hope the Chinook winds come soon!

RuthieJ- That would be awesome! My grandma finally made it to Sweden, her ancestral homeland, when she was in her seventies. I could dig up a relative or two in Norway or Sweden to stay with. Of course you'd have to put up with my incessant jamming with the local musicians. :)
