A Quick Meme

A meme that I decided to do while IMing with Kiti:

Again, please excuse the crazy big paragraph breaks. Blogger can't make up its mind!

Taken from Happy Wonderer.

Have you ever:

Gone on a blind date No

Skipped school No

Watched someone die Yes, my father.

Been to Canada Yes, Vancouver, BC, and Victoria, BC, and the Toronto airport.

Been to Mexico Yes, to Mexicali, for about an hour, when I was 19.

Been to Florida Yes, my parents lived in Miami for over a year and I took the two older kids to visit them.

Been on a plane Yes, too many times to count, too many types of aircraft to remember, and I've logged a lot of hours in helicopters.

Been lost Yes, on one of those plane rides over the Papuan jungle, also in a couple of strange cities.

Been on the opposite side of the country Yes, several times and in more than one country

Been to the capital of your country Yes. That would be Washington, DC, and on the opposite side of my country.

Swam or waded in the ocean Yes, The Pacific, The Atlantic, The Caribbean, The Indian Oceans

Cried yourself to sleep Yes

Played cops and robbers Yes, and Cowboys and Indians, and Fast Girl and Slow Boy (a game I was dumb enough to play with my brother where he walked really really slowly while clearing the dinner table and I walked really really fast)

Recently colored with crayons I'm a Kindergarten teacher, what do you think?

Sung Karaoke No

Paid for a meal with coins only? Yes, food is really cheap in Indonesia

Caught a snowflake on your tongue Yes, I grew up in Oregon and lived for four winters in Illinois

Danced in the rain Yes, nice warm tropical rain in Papua, Indonesia

Done something you told yourself you wouldn’t? Yes, like never eating liver again or never going on a roller coaster again.

Been kissed under the mistletoe yes

Watched the sunrise with someone you care about Yes- although I was tempted to write "What's a sunrise?" I'm not a morning person.

-Been out of North America Yes, Great Britain, Italy, Germany, The Philippines, Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia.

-Regreted something you blogged Yes, and I'm going to go delete it!

I won’t tag anyone, either, but if you do it let me know so that I can come and read!

Hi Willow,

This was great fun to read. You are a well-travelled person! I just read about the slow girl and fast boy game to my son. I told him it was good to know that I wasn't the only sister who fell for my older brother's tricks to get me to do the work.
