Old School Blogging: It’s a thing!


This is a pretty cool link up. I had no idea this party was going on. I’ve read a few posts that seemed to be answering some getting to know you type questions, but I didn’t know it was a thing until this week. I was invited to participate by Joi at RX Fitness Lady. It’s a once a month meme; the July meme theme is “List of Fives”.

Five Things I Have A Passion For

  1. Animals. But I don’t have any. I have fish and I really don’t like them very much.
  2. Nature. I don’t want to camp in it or anything. I just like to look at it.
  3. Health. I wish there was no such thing as Doritos and Ice Cream. And Krispy Kreme donuts. And Mike & Ike’s.
  4. Recycling. Not really. I’ll recycle at home but I’ll throw a water bottle in your trash.
  5. Apple products! Dead serious.

Five Things I’d Like to Do Before I Die

  1. Ride in a hot air balloon.
  2. I don’t know now. I kinda just freaked myself out.

Five Things I Say a Lot

  1. Really? Like when I get up to use the bathroom in the middle of the night and my husband rolls into my spot within the thirty seconds that I’m gone.
  2. You have GOT to be kidding me. Like when I heard the verdict last weekend.
  3. Dang! When Christopher was 5, he said he could tell this was a bad word.
  4. Crap! I tried to say crackers instead but I never remembered. 
  5. Wow. Like when I heard the verdict last weekend.

Five Books And/Or Magazines I Have Read Lately

I’ve read/listened to all of these this year! I am so proud of myself. I started with Alex Haley's Roots after I saw some of the series around the Christmas holidays. Then I wanted to read other books of movies that I have seen. The titles in bold were WAY better than the movies – like no comparison better.

  1. Gone With the Wind
  2. The Color Purple
  3. Their Eyes We’re Watching God
  4. Joy Luck Club
  5. Roots

Five Favorite Movies 

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve watched them and I’ll watch them every time they come on.

  1. Shawshank Redemption
  2. An Affair to Remember
  3. Pretty Woman
  4. The Color Purple
  5. Lady Sings the Blues – hmm I wonder if this one is a book

Five Places I’d like to Travel To

I’d prefer to stay in the United States and look at nature.

  1. Colorado
  2. Areas surrounding Yellowstone
  3. Vermont
  4. Key West
  5. Arizona

Five People I invited to Do This Meme

I’m the first one to never participate; so I’m just gonna say YOU! 

Here’s the thing… I had ‘ride in a helicopter’ under something to do before I die. I totally changed my mind and opted for riding in a hot air balloon instead. #:-S
