Childhood Meme

My blog son Spurs tagged me with this Childhood Meme. Him and I need to go over a few rules on tagging the person that gives you your allowance! ;-)

We're also supposed to remove item #1 from this list, bump everyone up one place and add your blog to the 5 spot applying links to all. (Huh? What for? Whatever...okay)

1. Villainous Company
2. Riehlworldview
3. Third World County
4. Pull My Finger
5. And What Next...

Then tag 4 bloggers you just adore or feel they need something to do...

1. Tammi - I thinks she'll have some great ones
2. Blog mom Bou - Memories of a military child are always good.
3. Little Joe - The dude hasn't posted in over a week!
4. ArmyWife - She tells great stories!

1. Dressing in daddy's Cammies, eating his MRE's, going to play on the tanks, going to Jane Wayne Day, etc. I thought it was so cool my daddy was a Marine!

2. Music Music Music. I remember my first tape - Cyndi Lauper, the first tape I bought myself - Celine Dion, Colour of My Love, the first CD I bought - Reba McEntire, It's Your Call, the first tape I listened to after I was able to break away from country music - New Kids on the Block, and when I started to get into older (to me) music in Jr. High, such as Fleetwood Mac, Def Leppard, Journey, Styx, Pat Benetar, etc.

3. Christmas when I was 13. It was right before my dad and stepmom were stationed in Africa, and the first year I had lived with them. We had a HUGE Christmas. It was the most homey Christmas I've ever had. Huge Christmas tree and the presents came out about 6 feet from the tree. The opened ones were "from Santa" (too lazy to wrap :-) ) And I got EVERYTHING I had asked for. Some of those things: Rollerblades, a Cowgirl outfit (I loved to ride horses) and tons of other stuff.

4. Going to carnivals in Okinawa Japan. I had long blonde hair and blue eyes. Japanese women would just come behind me and run there fingers through it. Freaked me out! But the carnivals were different but cool! I remember going through a human maze that took hours, eating Yakitori (chicken on a stick, yum!) and jumping in the moonwalk until I couldn't walk anymore.

5. Telling my sister she wasn't American (or that she was Japanese) because she was born in Okinawa, Japan! I had her so upset about that until she hit about 13 and she figured me out! I think she's still mad at me!

The thing with your sister! Love it! (I did similar things to my brother, now that you've started the meme-ories flowing that way, but let's just back slowly away from that... )

I've really enjoyed following this meme-ory lane exercise. I /knew/ Sours would tag you... Thanks for the meme-ories!

This is better than "turd in a punchbowl", really!

However, TN told me I was born in the toilet or found in a trashcan. Mom didn't refute this, just gave the shrugged shoulder, pierced lip if to say, "I can't deny this".

There was one picture of my brother that my mom kept on display where he had really long hair. I used to tell him that he had been born a would he cry.

"This is better than "turd in a punchbowl", really!"

No, really? *LOL*

A poke in the eye with a sharp stick is better than "turd in a punchbowl"...

And this is MUUUUCH better than that!

You know, I wouldn't mind seeing you in a cowgirl outfit now...rawr!

Posted by: littlejoe at June 10, 2005 10:52 PM

I /know/ I need more sleep... for a split second there, I thought littlejoe's "cowgirl outfit" remark was directed at me and I was... disturbed by the possibility.

Oh, relief! This is Sissy's blog!


Still, time for this old geezer's nap...
