My First Meme – Nine Layers

It’s Wednesday morning, and I’m a little bored, so I’m going to do this meme that I found on Gingersnap‘s blog.  Before we begin…can someone please explain what ‘MEME’ means and how it’s pronounced?  Obviously, I’m new here.

Okay, here’s the quizzy-thingie meme:

9 Layers
A meme to peel away the layers of you.
(Deep.  Very Deep.)

LAYER ONE:
– Name: Tracy
– Birth date: July 31 (That’s also Harry Potter’s birthday.)
– Birthplace: Nashville
– Current Location: Jackson, WY
– Eye Color: Blue
– Hair Color: Brown
– Height: 5′7″
– Righty or Lefty: Righty
– Zodiac Sign: Leo

LAYER TWO:
– Your heritage: Hillbilly
– The shoes you wore today: Currently in my slipper booties
– Your weakness: Smoking
– Your fears: Dying young…ironic, isn’t it?
– Your perfect pizza: Thin crust, fire-oven baked, with lots of veggies
– Goal you’d like to achieve: Leaving something behind that people can remember me for

LAYER THREE:
– Your most overused phrase on AIM: I rarely chat…but maybe “Whassup?”, only in my mind I sound like those beer commercials.
– Your first waking thoughts: What was that dream about?
– Your best physical feature: Eyes
– Your most missed memory: My friend Donnie (who is no longer with us and I miss him like crazy) once scootched a little closer to me in high school…I got one of those crazy chills up my back and then, big geek that I am, scootched away.  I wish I’d acted on that chill instead of being scared of it.

LAYER FOUR:
– Pepsi or Coke: Wild Cherry Diet Pepsi, baby.  It’s my crack.
– McDonald’s or Burger King:  I’m not crazy about either, but I prefer BK’s burgers.  Unfortunately, there’s only a Mickey D’s in this town.
– Single or group dates: I’m married, so single dates, please.
– Adidas or Nike: New Balance
– Lipton Ice Tea or Nestea: Neither…I prefer Tetley or Luzianne if I’m making iced tea.

– What do you want to be when you grow up:  Same thing I’m doing now, only union & in a larger venue.
– What country would you most like to visit: France…since I studied French for 6 years of my life and never went anywhere to use it.

LAYER NINE:
– Number of drugs taken illegally: 2 (I went to college!)
– Number of people I could trust with my life: I can’t imagine…my parents & my husband?

    Hahaha, I love that you put “hillbilly” as your heritage.

      Tennessee on one side, Kentucky on the other…voice & diction classes in college beat my accent down to a manageable “southern” sound, but my immediate family members all sound like they just came down from the hills, no matter how much education they have. It’s awesome!

    I’ve gone digital, too, and have hundreds of CDs that need to be ripped. That’d take forever.

      It did take forever to rip all my CD’s…and unfortunately at the time I didn’t rip full CD’s due to hard drive space. Now that I have a ginormous hard drive, it’s hard to think of going back and re-ripping the entire albums!
