One Two Three and More…


As of February 10, 2008, the Being a Mom is Great blog has moved here ( Please visit Soapbox Mom to read more articles by this author (bmg mom is now Soapboxmom).


My friend PG over at Annoyingly Boring (great title, eh?) tagged me with this meme, as a way of encouraging me to give these things another try (thanks, Pat!). PG’s a funny guy who makes entertaining videos about his continuing weight loss program. He’s doing a great job! Anyway, the meme is cleverly called, “1, 2, 3, 4, 5 … Meme Time” and it’s a kind of pyramid meme where you provide responses that increase at a rate of one per answer (yeah, I’ve been helping my kids with their math homework). You’ll see what I mean as you read it.

Name one thing you do everyday:

  1. Okay, well, I can’t resist going with PG’s answer here. I eat everyday (and drink water).

Name two things you wish you could learn:

  1. To ski really, really well.
  2. To play golf really, really well.

Name 3 things that remind you of your childhood:

  1. Board games
  2. Books
  3. Hot chocolate
hot cocoa

Name 4 things you love to eat but rarely do:

  1. Mashed potatoes
  2. Gelato
Vivoli - Il Gelati - A Life Worth Eating
Moonstruck Chocolate Truffle

4. Nothing else (unless I could include something like dinner at Taillevent in Paris or utterly amazing food on the coast in California or fresh, organic food in the Northeast. Ooooh yeah…)

    Name 5 things/people that make you feel good:

    1. My husband
    2. My kids
    3. Beautiful, bright sunny days
    Sunny Beach

    4. Podcasting

    5. Writing/reading a really good post or a really good book

    Now, here’s where I’m supposed to tag someone, but I’m doing it a little differently this time. If you’d like to join in and do this meme, please do so! If not, no problem.

    But, how ’bout going to visit PG’s blog (or just leave a comment).


    UPDATE: Yay! We have a taker, ladies and gents. Lizzie over at Bizzy Lizzie decided to do this meme! It’s a tag (well, sort of). Anybody else?

      1. PG

        Thanks for humoring me! I think you did a smashing job. And thanks for the kind words.

        [Hey, thanks, PG!


      2. I’m not a fan of memes myself, but have done a few in the past. I never do the tagging thing though.


        [I hear you, Mikster.

      3. Love that photo of the beach! Can’t wait for warmer weather!

        Happy Friday!

      4. Great meme. I usually hesitate to tag as well; but I find people usually play if they need it for crazy blogging like Blog 365 – I know they came in handy for NaBloPoMo!

        Bloghoppin’ Hi!


        [Oooo, yeah. That’s a good point. Thanks for that!

      5. Wait – Someone actually got mad that you tagged them? I don’t get it. Getting tagged gives you link love and recognition. If you don’t want to do it, then just don’t do it. Simple as that. But mad?? Some people need to follow my lead and drink more whiskey. It mellows you out.


        [I hear you, Buzzee, the world would definitely be a better place!


      6. I’ve never been tagged and I’ve only done one meme but you’ve inspired me with this little exercise…
        .. need some fuel to light the fire under me this a.m. I’m groggy and bloghopping – My first time here- really nice site!



        [Wahoo! Lizzie comes through for me! Thanks, Lizzie!! Mad props to you, girlfriend! I’m glad to be your first, so to speak.

      7. Thanks for passing the meme torch. I took it and posted it on my blog today, and four of my community members posted their own responses.

        BTW, I love the beach picture.


        [Hey, that’s great news! Glad to hear it! Thanks.

      8. Oh, I want to do it!! I am new to the blogging thing so this would really be fun.
