I've Been Tagged...YIKES!!

Adam Wilson at "Letters On Pages" (who was tagged by Jennifer from The Literate Housewife (originating at The Book Lady’s Blog) tagged me with this meme. I didn’t know what meme meant until about 3 minutes ago. Basically it is when a set of questions gets passed around the intergoogle to be answered by different people. (note: the true definition of a meme, according to Wikipedia, is “is any thought or behavior that can be passed from one person to another by means of imitation.” Which is kind of…but not really…what is happening here. Anyway…I am excited because this is my first one and I get to pretend James Lipton is awkwardly asking the questions while staring intensely in my eyes.


In the spirit of continuing my “getting to know you” theme from last week, I thought I’d borrow this questionnaire from my good buddy James Lipton (love him!) at Inside the Actors Studio and try to get a fun little meme started at the same time. So, I’ll answer the questions and then tag three of my blogging buddies, who will then tag three more, and well…you see how it goes.
