Meme Mania

I’ve been tagged by two different people recently to complete a couple memes.  I was tagged by Tot’s Mom at Toddler Humor.  Here goes…

Post 5 links to 5 of your previously written posts. The posts have to relate to the 5 key words given below.

Link ONE must be about FAMILY : Pick one from the Family Category
Link TWO must be about FRIEND : I don’t have any 🙁  Momma is my best friend.
Link THREE must be about YOURSELF : The Traveling Dad
Link FOUR must be about your LOVE : Where’s Daddy At?
Link FIVE can be ANYTHING YOU LIKE : Super Baby or Super Dad?

The next meme is a bit more involved and I was tagged by Jen at My 3 Boys and I to complete it.  Each list was supposed to contain eight items each.  However I only got about three hours of sleep last night so I am going to stop at three items.  Here goes…

Three Things I Am Passionate About

  1. Momma and Ace – What would I do without them?
  2. Enjoying Life – I believe in work before play, but when the work is done…watch out!
  3. Putting Off Memes – Memes are not the most fun thing I can think of to do with my time, so they usually get put off until I am really bored (like right now) 🙂

Three Things I Want To Do Before I Die

  1. Go Skydiving – This has got to be the most awesome rush a person could get!
  2. Buy A Farm – What’s better than the smell of fresh manure first thing in the morning?
  3. Finish This Meme – Eventually it will happen…

Three Things I Say Often

  1. “What’s up little man?” – Talking to Ace of course…
  2. “What’s wrong little man?” – Again, talking to Ace…
  3. “Blah, Blah, Blah” – Fits every boring situation.  Try it!

Three Things That Attract Me To My Best Friends

  1. Ability To Have Fun and Laugh – Boring friends…what’s the point.  I can bore myself.  I don’t need friends to do that for me. 😀
  2. See #1
  3. See #1

Three Things I Have Learned This Past Year

  1. Babies are not easily breakable – I am extremely surprised at how flexible Ace is and how he can fall smack on his face and not even care.  I think I would tear a few things (including my pants) if I stuck my foot in my mouth.
  2. When your wife is in the delivery room, in labor, and pushing…do not answer you cell phone…even if it is your Dad calling because he is lost and can not find the hospital. 🙂
  3. Blogging is pretty darn cool!

 Three People Who Should Do This Meme

  1. Anyone who thinks George Bush is a good president
  2. Anyone who thinks Britney Spears is a good Mom
  3. Anyone who is as bored as I was before doing this meme

Blah, Blah, Blah. 😀

    You “only got about three hours of sleep” WHY????

    go to bed

    “Enjoying Life – I believe in work before play, but when the work is done…watch out!” this is a REALLY good philosophy

    “I think I would tear a few things (including my pants) if I stuck my foot in my mouth.” LOL me 2

  3. Momo Fali says:

    LOL! You’re better than I am. I have yet to do a meme, though I’ve been tagged aplenty. It’s probably out of fear that people will clearly see just how uninteresting I am!!

  4. Joe says:

    Dude, get off the cell! Are you serious? LOL! That one is too funny. Poor Rookie! Peace J man. Get some sleep now and here is a good song for that…

    Good night!

  5. Momma says:

    Okay, so I’ve been told that I need to either write an article or post some comments, so here is my first….I promise people the thing about answering the phone is very true….to this day he still gets reminded of that! Let’s hope that doesn’t happen the second time around, or he could be in serious trouble! Everyone has some great sites and even better comments. Take care all, Momma

  6. Jared says:

    @Grateful: Thanks for visiting!

    @Jen: I only got three hours of sleep because…well, read this post.

    @Momo: Please…no one is possibly more UNintersting than me and somehow I manage to come up with a bunch of bull. 😀

    @Joe: Cool song! Yeah, rookie is right. I will never hear the end of that one. 😀

    @Momma: Finally! You show your typing abilities at! Love Ya! 😀

    @Jen: You are officially crowned te Meme queen!

  7. BusyDad says:

    Funny – I also made that rookie mistake of answering my phone during labor. Granted, I was waiting for a prospective employer to call me back (hey, just trying to provide for my new family, right?), but I still get crap for that to this day. At least the employer was really impressed with my enthusiasm for the job when I told him “yeah, my wife is in labor right now, but no, it’s ok, I can talk…” Oops. Ended up not getting that job. Otherwise, I’d have a good defense for picking up the phone.

  8. Jared says:

    @BusyDad: Oh, if I would have answered because of trying to get a job I don’t think we would ever have another baby (snip snip) 🙂

    It was funny…I was giving my Dad directions and in between pushing, my wife was telling me the directions I was giving was not the best way to get there. Next time I’m going to mail out directions and maps to everyone before hand. 🙂

  9. Tot's Mom says:

    Thanks for doing the meme.

    You are lacking sleep and you still turn on your computer to do this?? No, I guess I shouldn’t say anything because I probably do the same. I think we are all on our way to becoming blogging addicts…
