Meme tagged!


Yes, Animewookie from My Gallery of Worlds has tagged me in a meme and since I had a space available and I was procrastinating from something I should have been doing *snicker* I thought it might be fun to do!

Rules:
1. Answer the eleven questions that were asked of you by the person who tagged you
2. Make up eleven new questions and tag eleven new people to do the meme! 
3. Let them know you tagged them!

My questions:
1. If you could describe your life in a color, what would it be and why?
I'd say midnight blue because it is mysterious. Oh wait... that is what I wish it could be... other than beige. Too boring. LOL

2. Do you have any pets? If so, what are they, their name/s and why do they fit your personality?
I have 2 dogs currently. One is a total goof and is the doberman. My alaskan malamute loves to be the audience to the doberman's goofyness. She also likes ruling the doberman. Although that sounds appealing... I think I'm probably more like my dobe. LOL

3. Where did you fit in in high school...jock, band geek, popular crowd...etc?
Seriously? I don't know. I had a lot of different friends. Many didn't even know I was friends with others. It wasn't anything strange or dramatic... it was just that they didn't have things in common with the other and so didn't hang out. I pretty much would hang with anyone and had fun.

4.How do you react in an emergency...fight or flight, go get help, the calm one???
Depends on the situation. Usually fight or calm.

5. If they were making a movie of your life, who would you chose to play you... why?
Angelina Jolie. Why? Who wouldn't want to look like that even in fantasy? LOL

6. Why is your best friend your best friend, what makes them so special?
She was someone I could talk to about things I couldn't normally with anyone else. I hope she felt the same. I miss her and I consider her a true angel now. :)

7. If money was no object, and you were going to buy yourself soothing completely frivolous, what would it be, and why?
No object? A vacation!

7. Three words that describe your personality?
Passionate, Goofy, and Strange... and loving that this is #7 twice. ;D

8. Who was your favorite teacher and how did they influence you?
Oh I had several. Most were in grade school. Usually it was just the encouragement in learning on your own and being creative with it.

9. What do you consider true strength?
Well, it has nothing to do with exercise weights. I say if you grunt when you pick it up... put it down!

10. What is your favorite game? (video, board, card...any kind)
Don't have a fave at the moment, but I loved Plants Vs. Zombies for a while. :)

11.What season do you love the most, why?
Depends. I love all the seasons for different reasons. Yes, even the dead of winter has it's promise when it is silent and calm.

Now I saw Blodeuedd do this one and didn't tag anyone. I think I'll do the same since schedules are so tight and many don't do awards (which this is like). So, I'm not tagging anyone but would LOVE to see how you answer the following (please let me know if you do it so I can see it):

1. If you had written a book of your life, what would be the title.
2. In the vein of a 6 word story... tell me about yourself.
3. Who would be your top choices in your book boyfriend harem?
4. Which character in a book would you like to be?
5. Which character in a book are you most like?
6. Do you have pets? Tell us about them?
7. Would you like to have a mythological pet? What would it be?
8. If you had a superpower, what would it be?
9. If you could dump a heroine in a book and take her place, what book and who would that be?
10. What is at the top of your bucket list?
11. What do you want most in your life right at this moment?

Have fun! You can even answer a few in the comments if you wish. :)

    1. You would have really liked her. :)

      Btw... non-athletic??? Seriously? You do those runs... in the heat. You so beat me in athleticism right now. Oh and I agree with teleportation. Wouldn't have to deal with the TSA. LOL

  6. Melissa, I'm so sorry to hear you lost your best friend. I have 5 really good friends but my bestie, the one who knows everything about me and vice versa is so dear to me. If anything happened to her, I'd be devastated. I can only imagine your grief. I am truly sorry and heart-broken for you, sweetie <3

    I loved your answers! You answered perfectly without giving to much away-Mysterious Melissa!

    I have a few answers to the questions:

    1. If you had written a book of your life, what would be the title:
    Living Life After Losing Life (this would be upbeat and positive)

    2. In the vein of a 6 word story... tell me about yourself:
    Fighter-Stubborn-Loving-Compassionate-Sad-Sick

    4. Which character in a book would you like to be?
    Merit from The Chicago Land Vampires by Chloe Neill-She's tough but compassionate and always does the right thing. Plus she has Ethan-not a bad life :o]

    6. Do you have pets? Tell us about them?
    I love animals! Right now I have a big lug of a dog named Bear but he answers to Bear Butt, Bubba louie, Boobala, Punkadoodle and Boo. He's very smart because he knows all of his names :o]
    We got him from the pound almost 3 years ago-he's a mix of Rottie,Dobermen, German Shepard and Lab. I have a rare disease that is incredibly painful and since he was a pup he's always been by my side. He slept with me in my hospital bed that was in our family room, when I'm in pain, he lays next to me and puts his head on my belly. When I'm having a bad day and I need to unload, I talk to him instead of worrying my family and friends. I swear, he understands everything I say. He has these beautiful soulful eyes that are so very expressive.
    -He's truly one of the best friends I've ever had. Oh, and he thinks he's 80% human and 20% cat! I have 2 cats Miss Maggie and Miss Mimi and they helped raise him-they groom him, snuggle with him, etc... he takes his front legs, licks them and then proceeds to clean his face-cat like :o] It's adorable.
    I don't know if I could have gotten through this horrible illness without him-he's my guardian angel and just being by him gives me a sense of peace.

    10. What is at the top of your bucket list?
    Well, I'm in remission now so I'd like to get my muscle strength back and be as athletic as I was pre-disease! I want to water-ski, snow board, hike, DANCE, go snow mobiling, go to BEA, be able to bring my leg up to my ear like I did before from my yoga practice... there's so much I want to do! Let's just say I want to go back to the pre-sick Kristi!

    11. What do you want most in your life right at this moment?
    To stay in remission and get back to work and be who I used to be!

    Wow, those were great questions and I answered them personally but that's what's going on in my life-I just want to get better and get back to the girl I used to be.

    Is that to much to ask?

    I love what you've done to your blog for February, Melissa! I wish I had your skills! I had someone else do my blog so I'm afraid to mess with the coding, etc... I wish I could change a few things and be able to put some stuff on the sides like you do, it looks awesome!

    1. Thanks. You would have liked her. I miss her a lot but I am happy she doesn't have to deal with pain anymore.

      OMG! I love your pets. You would SO love mine as well. There is a lot in common with those guys. I'm sad that you have to go through a lot of pain yourself but I'm so glad that you have those snuggle butts to help.

      My big wish for you is that you get your want. It isn't too much to ask so I hope with all my might that you get it!

      Oh and if you have any questions as to what I've done. I'll try to remember... LOL It was all easy html stuff. Not really any coding at all.

  8. I love finding out more about you, Melissa! As always, your answers and questions are intriguing. For some reason, I’m captivated by the fact that you consider yourself to be a midnight blue...cerulean, right? That does evoke mystery. I’d love to answer that question – I think I’d be a deep, blood red. Haha!

  10. You're answers - like you - are so freakin' awesome. I wish I had your energy...and wit and charm and humor...hmmm, the more I think about it, I should really hate you! But that's impossible. You're too lovable!

    I'm so sorry to hear about your friend. If she was your BFF, she had to be an amazing woman. *Hugs* And I'm sure she smiles down on you every day.

  11. Oh I'm working on one of these too! But I'll go quick here...

    Love the answers you came up with. You always have fun answers. :)

    Well, you know I have 3 fur babies...2 dogs and a cat.

    I would love to have a myth pet... a dragon! :D

    And I would love to have more time at home to do what I want to do, not have to go to the dreaded office everyday to work. ;)

    Thank you!!

    1. A dragon? Too cool. I still say I want a hellhound from Kelly Gay's books. If I find a litter, should I make sure they save you one? ;D

      I can't wait to read your meme!

    2. Oh yes, AND I'll take a Hank as well please. ;D LOL!

  12. Wow, those are great answers to your questions you had to answer. I think you are definitely midnight blue! There ain't nothin' beige about you. Just look at your blog! It's always changing and you've always got something going on! You could never be beige. Besides you are a dog lover! We are not beige!

    I'll have to think about your questions and I'll write a post on my blog. But this is a great way to do an award. I hate saying no, but I don't have time either! See, not beige at all! Smart Cookie!

  13. You...boring? Never!!! And it sounds like your my kind of strange. :)

    What's funny is that I'm often confused for Angelina Jolie whenever I'm out and about.

    Thanks for letting us get to know you better, Melissa.
