Tag, you're it!

I was tagged for this fun meme by my friend Sandra from Diary of a SAHM. She said she hadn't done a meme in quite a while and neither have I.
She asked me 8 questions:

1) What is your biggest pet peeve? Hmmm, I think it has to be rude people. I get really irritated when people cut in line, disregard rules or are mean to sales people.

2) If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be and why? I would live right here in West Michigan. It's a beautiful area and we get to experience all four seasons. I'm also blessed in the fact that all of my family lives near me.

3) Have you ever been searched by the cops? Ha! That's a good question! No, but I'll tell you about the closest I ever came. When I was in high school, kids often TP'd (toilet papered) yards of friends. It was only done to people you liked and no one I knew ever got in trouble for it. (You know where this is going, don't you?) Anyway, one night a few friends and myself decided to TP the home of one of our youth leaders from church. We lived out in the country and this couple's home was out in farmland where there was very little traffic. So, we were running around the yard, spreading joy in our own way when a car came by, shining a light on us. They yelled out "Hey you" or something like that. We thought it was some of the guys from our youth group, so we took off running. Imagine my surprise when I ran around a corner, right into a police officer! The other girls where also caught and we were taken to the front door of the youth leaders home to check if they knew us. At this point there were a lot of laughs, even from the police. It didn't take long for the whole church to hear about it and it took some time to live this down!

4) What is the one thing on your mind right now? I'm looking forward to having next week off from work. I'll tell you more about that tomorrow.

5) What is your favorite song right now? This song is actually being released on the 28th, but I heard it through a link on Facebook and I love it! It's Michael W Smith (Who is one of my all time favorites!) and the song is Save Me from Myself.

6) What talent do you wish you had? I wish I could draw. I can't believe what some people can do with a pencil and paper. Even my stick figures leave something to be desired!

7) What is your favorite drink? This is a pretty boring answer, but it would have to be Diet Coke. I don't like anything that I can taste alcohol in and I don't like coffee. I usually just drink water or Diet Coke.

8) Describe yourself in one word? Only one? That's hard! I guess I would say caring.

Thanks Sandra - this was fun!
I'm not going to tag anyone, but feel free to do this if you would like, and let me know if you do so I don't miss your answers.

Fun read, Mari. I enjoyed each & everyone of your answers.

Susan said...

P.S. I'd like to do this one, but I'm so far behind in my blogging already. Maybe I'll save it and do it later!!

Patti said...

Enjoyed the post today, Mari....I am right there with you with stick pictures! :)

HOOTIN' ANNI said...

Wow....learned something about you today---which is super. I had that tag last week, it was fun to do since the questions were not so redundant that it was a bore.

So.....hmmmmm, tp'ing a house huh? Sounds like a whole lotta youthful fun. AND...I don't drink coffee either. Nor coke since the cardiologists tell me the caffeine is in there. LOL. Not much but enough to trigger rapid heart rate if too much is consumed, so they scared me off the colas.

Great post, and lots of fun to read Mari.

Musicaljean said...

i somehow can't imagine you TPing anyone's house!! :)

kari said...

nice to get to know you a little more.
I love Michael W Smith too. And enjoy your week off.

Chocolate Covered Daydreams said...

That's hilarious that you all had the youth pastor woken up during your tping. I'm sure he still remembers that!

I haven't heard the song by MWS but I sure will take a listen. I like everything by him as well.

Raise Them Up said...

I can only imagine the laughs over the TPing. How funny! Though I'm sure it is more funny as the years go by!

I really enjoyed reading your answers. :)

I'm Sadie said...

We are a lot alike! I am not fond of rude people either!

Pat said...

What fun reading this. I love this type of meme that gives you a little insight on your blog buddies~
I'm going to do this soon, if I can remember to!

Sharon said...

That was so fun to read. I also remember A tp party back when I was young.
I will have to do the meme thing when I get a chance.
have a great day.
