Challenge Accepted!

Aunt Becky wrote a meme, and of course, I have to respond!

1) What does Meme mean?

It's the sound Beaker makes, of course!

2) 2011 – Was it all you’d hoped it would be?

Sort of? I had lots of time with my cute little man - watching him learn and grow. But I had hoped to be a little more financially stable by now.

3) Did you watch the Royal Wedding?

I set my DVR and watched it later in the day so I could fast forward through the boring parts.

4) Where are your pants?

Wearing my favorite gray pants right now. They're soft and almost as comfy as jammies.

5) Is Justin Bieber human or some sort of robot?

Definitely a robot.

6) If you had only one thing to wish for this coming year, what would it be?

To have my house paid off.

7) Would you call yourself a “social media maven?”

BAHaha! That's funny. While I do know my way around some social medias, I'm not a maven of anything.

8 ) If you had to take three things to a desert island (let’s assume you have ample food and water), what would they be?

My husband (yay for alone time on the beach with my man!!)
My pirate flag - so I can make friends with passing pirates.

9) If you had the ability to banish certain offenses to an island where they would be rehabilitated into being okay again, what would those offenses be?

Anything relating to Twilight
Anyone who uses Facebook like it's Twitter. I really don't need to know what you're doing every 5 minutes.
People who are famous for being talented when they actually suck (I'm looking at YOU, John Mayer!)

10) How do YOU think the air conditioner works?

Little trolls constantly fighting cause a breeze.

11) Do you ACTUALLY think you can make money blogging?

That's funny.

12) There’s a lot of talk in the blog world about microblogging (The Tumblr, The Twitter, The Facebook) taking over traditional blogs. Do you think that’s the case?

I doubt it. There will always be people who want to do that kind, but I know I'm not the only one who prefers to have my own thoughts in my own space.

13) If you could give one piece of advice to your younger self, what would it be?

Don't sacrifice fun out of paranoia. It IS okay to play a little. Go have some fun.

14) If you could’ve told yourself this time last year one thing, what would it be?

That thing you're really worried about? It's going to get better this year!

15) If you could have one Super Power, what would it be?

Flying. Definitely flying.

16) If you could do one thing you can’t currently do, and do it well, what would it be?

Playing the piano. I wish things had gone better all those years I took lessons. I would like to still be able to play.

17) What surprises you about yourself?

I'm still surprised by how strong I am. Just when I think I can't go on dealing with a problem, I find the strength to keep going.

18) What was your favorite blog post/tweet of the past year?

Of mine? Hmmm.. There were a lot of them that I enjoyed writing (and rereading later). So I'll just pick one semi-randomly. This one because it brought up some interesting discussions.

19) Do you REALLY think “Purple Should Be A Flavor?”

It is!! I have tasted purple. There used to be an ice cream we loved in our family that was a vanilla ice cream with some sort of berry swirl. Our friend referred to it as "Purples and Cream". It was really yummy & I wish it was still around.

20) If you could make one outlandish wish for 2012, what would it be?

To have all my bills paid off, my garage and greenhouse built, my garden planted and growing, and a 1967 GTO in the garage to work on and make all pretty.
