That's a great meme. I learned a lot about you--those are the ones that are always fun. Let me just say you are so right about life being short--we truly never know. (I don't think I will ever be completely organized ; )

I love memes! This one is especially good. I am going to add it to my blog if that is okay. I feel the same way about time for myself. Watch out, if I don't get it. Time alone is even better than chocolate for me! ;)

Thanks for tagging me. Question though: What is a meme? Is it me, me put together, an accronym for something, or is it really a word and I am just ignorant to it's meaning?:O)

Ok Tiffany, you are going to be sorry you asked what a meme is! I too, wasn't sure when I was tagged the first time and so I did a little research. I always thought it was a "me" "me"...because they are usually about, well...ME! But, I was WAY off. It is pronounced so it rhymes with GENE or DREAM. So here is (one of)the definitions I found:

In 1976 a nerd named Dawkins shortened the Greek word ‘mimeme’ (something imitated) to meme (mēm) so that it sounded similar to the word gene. (He did that on purpose)
In his mind, a meme is similar to a gene, in that it’s self replicating.
He wanted his new word to describe a unit of social and cultural evolution.
A meme can constantly mutate into something new, depending on the host, and be passed on. In this way it also resembles a virus.
A blog meme is generally a pre-made list of questions that the author answers for her readers. She then “tags” other readers to answer the same questions. The author of that meme is at liberty to keep the same questions, or tweak them as she wishes. Hence the “mutation”, if you will.
A specific blog meme is only one unit in a memeplex (a group of memes). I assume that the different blog memes make up their own memeplex and fall into a larger technology meme. But Heaven help me, I’m not an expert on such things.
There are memes for most human behaviors and cultural systems. For example: politics, religion, fashion, personality, etc, etc, etc. And I mean etcetera. There are lots of the little buggers out there.

So there ya go! Much more info than you wanted I am sure! ;)
