Getting to Know Me MEME.

Last week, Laura Diamond tagged me for a meme. I haven't done memes in a while, and this one really had me thinking a long time. And away we go!

If you could go back in time and relive one moment, what would it be?

I'd pick my first date with my hubs.

If you could go back in time and change one thing, what would it be?

There are so many!

I'd redo a conversation with a friend a few years back. I hurt her terribly and had no intention of doing so, and it was all about using the wrong words. Wish I could do that one again.

What movie/TV character do you most resemble in personality?

Janine Garofalo's character in The Truth about Cats and Dogs, only with slightly less sarcasm.

If you could push one person off a cliff and get away with it, who would it be?

There are a lot of people I intensely dislike or think are horrible additions to humanity, but I don't think I could actually kill anybody. I'm going to pick an historical person and say Hitler.

Name one habit you want to change in yourself.

Pathologic procrastination.

Describe yourself in one word.

Quirky. Adaptable. Occasionally incapable of following directions.

Describe the person who named you in this meme in one word.

Sweet!

Why do you blog? Answer in one sentence.

I love connecting with the writerly community. (So what if I copied Laura's answer word for word?)

Name at least 3 people to send this meme to, and then inform them.

Jonene Ficklin
Old Kitty
Leigh T. Moore

Have fun gals! And have a great weekend, everyone!

Cool meme with lots of neat questions. That first one got me reliving a moment in my head - the first time I saw my husband. Thanks for that morning smile.

Jess said...

Great answers~ I love the idea of reliving the first date with your husband. That would definitely be a fun one for me :)

Awww, you made me blush! ;)

I like your response: occasionally unable to follow rules. hahaha!

Suze said...

Lydia, if the conversation with your friend hurt her, and it was years ago, and it was unintentional, don't carry it anymore. Don't give that regret space. It was a mistake, I'm sure you've apologized. If the friend is unable to forgive you, it's no longer about what you said.

A beautiful weekend to you.

L.G.Smith said...

Ha! I'm a pathologic procrastinator too. Good answers.

Meredith said...

Haha, I love that you're a pathological procrastinator. I'm totally the same way. :)

Angela Felsted said...

Love your answers. I couldn't push any living person off a cliff either.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

I doubt you could be as sarcastic as Garofalo!

Carol Kilgore said...

Great fun answers!
Happy Weekend.

Old Kitty said...

Matthew MacNish said...

Roland D. Yeomans said...

It was great getting to know more about you. About that cliff? There have been times when I've messed up that I would have pushed ME over that cliff! LOL. Have a great weekend, Roland

Rachna Chhabria said...

Enjoyed your answers, Lydia. Now, I feel I know you a bit more. Have a lovely weekend.

Heather said...

That is so sweet that you would relive your first date with your hubby! This was fun!

Olga said...

I loved reading your Meme Me. I relate to your responses in many instances.

Bee said...

Pathologic procrastination. Heh.
Fun meme you have here!

Chris Phillips said...

Good answers. I'd push a lot of people off cliffs. Good thing for me there aren't really an cliffs around here.

Stephanie Thornton said...

Fun answers!

Now I'm wondering who I'd shove off a cliff. Hmmm...

Bossy Betty said...

Great answers!!

Krispy said...

Pathologic procrastination? I think I'm afflicted with that too!

Loved your answers!

M Pax said...

I hope Leigh's move is going all right.

I don't think I could push anyone off a clip either. It was fun to learn more about you. :)

Sailor said...

It was nice to know more about you!

Ciara said...

Great answers! I love this stuff. :)

Karen Lange said...

Fun meme! Fun to learn a little more about you, too. I don't think I could push anyone off a cliff either.

Have a good weekend!

Steph said...

Good call on Hitler!

Zarin said...

Those are good questions and even better answers - wow! It really helps - the question about which movie/TV personality you resemble. (I loved Janine Garofalo in The Truth About Cats and Dogs - great character - warm, well intentioned, good friend, in over her head but makes it though anyway). Great call, going back to relive your first date with your husband!

And thanks for meme'ing me. I'm really thinking hard.

catherinemjohnson said...

Oh yes first date with hubby. Nice that you chose a non-writing one :)

Agree about Hitler, there are so many dictators worthy of a push.

Have a great weekend!

Alleged Author said...

I love "The Truth About Cats and Dogs." How cool that you identify with her character. She's one of my favorites. :)

Jai Joshi said...

These are some interesting meme questions and I was intrigued to read your answers. The going back in time to change something question got me thinking about what I'd change and it made me realise how these regrets pile up.
