The “7 Things About Me” Meme

I saw this meme at Sweet Tea.  I thought that it looked like a fun “dog days of summer I have nothing else to say because my brain is fried” kind of post.

I’m to list 7 random things about myself… add this button to my post… and then invite other bloggers to do the same thing.  Consider yourself invited.

1.  I like mushrooms and pineapple on my pizza.  Don’t judge.  It’s good.  Zen-Den refers to it as “dessert” pizza.

2.  I stood in line at Starbucks behind Peter Frampton one day.  I didn’t realize it at the time, but later when I saw his photo in the newspaper I realized that the handsome, pleasant Englishman in front of me, who everyone in the shop was looking at, was Peter Frampton.

3.  I love to go for walks in city parks.  Movement +  people watching = entertainment. Throw in a few inquisitive dogs on a leash and I’m smiling for hours after I finish walking.

4.  I like palm trees.  They are happy trees.  When I see them in real life I know that I’m on vacation.  When I see them in photos I remember that I was on vacation– near happy trees– having a good time.

5.  I don’t like pastel pink.  I like fuchsia, dark pink, or honeysuckle;  these shades of pink have some zing to them.  But pastel pink makes me anxious and irritable.  It’s too demure and passive for me.

6.  I think that social media is lots of fun, but that too many people take it way too seriously.  Lighten up, people.  Live from your heart, not from your FB friend count.

7.  I have narrow feet.  Finding shoes that fit is difficult and always has been.  For me, when it comes to shoes, it’s not about getting what I want– as much as taking what I’m given.

  1. I hate pastel of nearly every color. I prefer vivid shades. Peter Frampton Live was the album we listened to in college; he was wildly popular back then. I love mushrooms and pineapple on my pizza–but not together. 🙂 Have you had a dessert pizza? They are fantastic.


  2. Yes to #6! The time I spend sifting through emails promising to maximize my social media impact could be so much better spent making connections in person. Maybe I’m just a 20-something left in the stone age, waiting to be surpassed by all of her peers. Oh well.

    Thanks for this little glimpse into who you are!


  3. Margaret, not really much for any pastel shade either– but pink bugs me the most. Totally didn’t recognize PF in the moment, but knew that something was up in the Starbucks by the way people were looking around. Never had a “real” dessert pizza.

    kacey, yep, I agree with you. It’s nutty– too often the focus is on the wrong thing.


  4. I’ve been a blogging slacker lately on an unplanned blog break. Now we’re on a long, long road trip. We’re in Arizona now and I have a bit of time on the computer – finally! I was having withdrawls from being away from my blogger buddies so long, I tell you. I wanted to stop by and “meet” you and thank you for leaving a comment so that I could find you. It’s always nice to make new friends, isn’t it? Happy summer.


  5. Relyn, thanks for stopping by. Your road trip sounds delightful to me. I agree that making friends through blogging is really part of its charm. Plus the ability to write & post whenever, wherever you might be. That’s cool, too. Happy trails!


  6. I love pineapple on my pizza! I think in some parts of the country it’s considered unusual, but around here, it’s just regular pizza.

    And palm trees…oh I love them. I want to plant one.
