Stealing is Sometimes Better Than Being Tagged

So I did not get tagged by Mrs. 4444, but I'm not going to let that stop me from playing. (How's that for tenacity?) Here's the Motherload meme:

Rule 1. List the first ten people who have commented on one of your blog posts.
Julie: Campus Crusade for Christ missionary in Hungary. Creative mother. Deep thinker.
Cool Breeze. BHE's guy. Kind interpretor of male speak.
Pam McEwens. Enormous sense of humor. Heart of kindness.
Lady Fi. British teacher living in Sweden. Always teaches me something, and makes me smile, too.
Cairo Typ0. World traveler. Marvelous writer. Always worth the read.
Mental Pause Mama. Razorsharp wit and insight. The type of person I wish lived on my street.
Big Hair Envy. Oh so funny. Oh so pretty. Oh so one of my favorites.
Laura. One of my first blog friends. Survivor. Unpretentious.
Pleasing Procrastinator. MIA blogger. Wife. Mother. Student. And doing it nicely.
Dr. John. Retired pastor. Lover of words and thoughts. Compelling faith sojourner.

Rule 2. The meme questions: 10 Blogs, 15 Questions.

What is your favorite post from #3's blog?
Nicely stated: 8 simple rules for dating/marrying my sons.

Has #10 taken any pictures that have moved you?
Dr. John always has a picture of the day. Through these, I've come to know his family.

Does #6 reply to comments on their blog?
MPM - To know that, I would have to be very organized and good at remembering. So ...

Which part of Blogland is #2 from?
Cool Breeze - Virginia. The part where they burn their trash.

If you could give one piece of advice to #7 what would it be?
BHE - Your life will be immeasureably enriched if you will rethink your refusal to decorate my house.

Have you ever tried something from #9's blog?
PP - I do believe she was the blogger who introduced me to Vintage Thingies Thursdays.

Has #1 blogged something that inspired you?
Julie - Her commitment to her call and faith absolutely inspires me, and has me thinking some pretty deep thoughts about my own life.

How often do you comment on #4's blog?
Lady Fi - Trying to get up to a daily comment.

Do you wait excitedly for #8 to post?
Laura - She's one of my first clicks every day.

How did #5's blog change your life?
Cairo Typ0 - She has genuinely expanded my world view. Seriously.

Do you know any of your 10 bloggers in person?
No, but wish I knew each of them in person.

Do any of your 10 know each other?
Cool Breeze and BHE are married. They know each other and then some.

Out of the 10, which updates more frequently?
Okay, I'm adding #11 here. Jeannelle posts daily and sometimes twice daily. Her posts hooked me with her farm tutorials, and then her honesty and philosophical approach intimidated me. But now? I can't wait to read how she sees life every day.

Which of the 10 keep you laughing?
I do believe that laughter is a constant theme of all 10 11. Some irreverant. Some self-depreciating. Some just silly. All good for the heart.

Which of the 10 made you cry (good or bad) tears?
Laura's story of a terribly bumpy journey to now.

Rule 3. If you are mentioned in this post, you're now it. Then again, since I didn't get officially tagged, maybe you're off the hook?

WOW! What fun. And thank you;) I sometimes reply in an email, and sometimes in my next post. This is a fun one.

Oh thanks! BTW, I'm an ex-teacher turned scriptwriter living in Sweden... How's that for excitement?

Thanks for a fun meme!

Big Hair Envy said...

You are one of my faves too Chickie!!! Thanks for the shout out:)

Now, about the decorating. Here's the ugly truth....It's cold here. It's COLDER there. No deal. Perhaps you should ask me again next August when the temperatures in VA are hovering in the mid-100's!!! Heehee!

Dr.John said...

Wow!I made the list. I am honored to be listed with such special people.
I think I'll use some of them in my " Today's Link"

Laura ~Peach~ said...

Awwwwww I am blushing now... I have been contemplating on continuing the tale... thanks to a new blogger(mary ellen) who is in the deep rollercoaster of her searching journey... I have sort of stalled out because of how I knew it would effect my bio siblings ...but she did give me her blessing (if you want to call it that) so... perhaps in the new year that will be my project.
I love your blog and I am so surprised that I was one of the first people you "met" on your blog... SOMEDAY i will meet you in person... you have been WARNED :D
HUGSSSSS and I will play this one day soon!

Pleasing Procrasinator said...

Wow..Thank You!! ((HUGS)) When I get the time, you are one of the first people I visit.
Two more weeks and I will be on a 3 wk break. YEA!!
