Meme

Okay, okay - I've been tagged several times with this, so I had better get on the stick...


The Rules

Remove the blog at #1 from the following list and bump every one up one place; add your blog's name in the #5 spot; link to each of the other blogs for the desired cross pollenation effect.

--Last Left Turn Before Hooterville
--Fun Central
--Left of Centrist
--Truespeak
--Words on A Page

Next: Select four new friends to add to the pollen count. (No one is obligated to participate and anyone can play if they want to). (I'm glad about that caveat - I'm not the best at always getting to it when I'm tagged, although it's always nice!)


'The Meme':

Cool! It may take me a little time to get to this, but I'll do it. I still owe Robert at Left of Centrist a movie meme - bad me!

It's hard enough to find time post the political stuff that's ripping me a new one, musch less get to a meme, but it's fun to try...

Oh thanks, Alicia, I have to remind you that Paybacks can be... and all that! (You don't call me AHT, for no reason, see)
According to this meme, I have to remember what I was doing 10 years ago... shoot!
Anyway, are you originally from Finland? If not, how did you get there. Such interesting things to learn about you! You are way cool!

Alicia said...

AHT - Sadly, I'm not from Finland. My husband and I were in a band that got a job in Finland for a month. We were 2 weeks in Helsinki and 2 weeks in Turku - long enough to make friends and fall in love with the country and the people. We were there sin the middle of summer, so the sun just touched the horizon at about 3 AM and went back up again. It was amazing. However, I hear the winters are pretty difficult, and the Finns are among the most depressed (and alcoholic) people in the world because of the long, dark winters. They have big hearts, though, and we would give anything to go back there.

Alicia said...

Alicia - I am truly flattered. Thanks for thinking of me. Bad couple of weeks in MudHole, though. I will try to catch up when I have a better frame of mind. This will be fun. - Mud
