Well, my reach has exceeded my grasp, thus far, but I've also been to Hawaii, which though part of the US, is quite different geographically and culturally.  I'll have to do the US one, so you can see how spread out yet paltry my travels have been.

I have lived on two continents, in 3 states, on 2 coasts & in the middle of the US, and spent 7 weeks in the interior of Brazil.

Not totally shabby, I guess.

I think it's pretty funny that Al and I have nearly inverse maps of both the world and the US!  (Me South America and western Western Europe; her Asia and Eastern Europe; Me East Coast and Midwest; Her West and South--of course there is some overlap.)  Pretty funny!

Stolen from [personal profile] copperbadge. This is the "Omnivore's Hundred" as compiled by Very Good Taste.

1) Copy this list into your blog or journal, including these instructions.
2) Bold all the items you’ve eaten.
3) Cross out any items that you would never consider eating (or would eat only if starving or under extreme duress)
4) Optional extra: Post a comment at www.verygoodtaste.co.uk linking to your results. (You can also go here to find links to explanations of the less-identifiable foods).

This list looks weird because there are links in it.  Hope it's understandable anyway!

My first album was a Mickey Mouse Club album that had songs like "The Triple R" and "Meet me at the Maltshop after school" both of which I can still sing, the second perhaps in its entirety. 

I couldn't find the exact one on line OR my memory is several damaged and one of the ones I found was it--even though none of them had the same combo of songs.  I think I was 7 or 8 when I got it.  I think it was yellow.

In any case, I did find a YouTube of my favorite song from the album, "How Will I Know My Love" by Annette Funicello.

As with my early 80s love of Air Supply (see [personal profile] cincan19s journal a few days ago), I was a very boy-crazy, sentimental kid.

Ah, memories.

I have had a terrible time posting this meme. First, I couldn't figure out how to get my icon urls. Then, Firefox closed in the middle of things. and now, when I was trying to insert "Merlin's Pants" I lost whole paragraphs of text. So, this is closer to the real deal. I'm sorry folks can't see the first 9 comments, but I did and have replied to the posters.

Icon meme seen recently going around the list, spotlighted icons chosen by [personal profile] alysonl . If you want to play along:
1) Reply to this post, and I will pick six of your icons.
2) Make a post and talk about the icons I chose.
3) Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
4) This will create a never-ending cycle of icon squee. Whoo!

I got this from someone in the austen.com Tea Room. Except for "Mr. Bennet", I did not make up any of the words, but asked for random words to be inserted. Here is my "totally random" P&P mad lib

a lovely BOOK MEME.  (if anyone other than the bard can tell me where that quote is from, I will be really impressed!  Hint: book meme is supposed to say 'beverage')

These are the top 106 books most often marked as "unread" by LibraryThing's users (as of today). As usual, bold what you have read, italicize what you started but couldn't finish, and strike through what you couldn't stand. The numbers after each one are the number of LT users who used the tag of that book.  (stolen from [personal profile] few, with this addition from [profile] julielu:  I'm adding an asterisk by the one's I've read more than once.)

The thing about this that made me want to giggle is my tendency to want to check off things that I had seen a movie version of, and later in the list, things I had read an abridged version of as children:  Jane Eyre, Treasure Island, David Copperfield.  I had forgotten how many abridged works I read (most I didn't realize were abridged until I started re-reading as an adult and thought--there is NO WAY I could've made it through this when I was 9 or 10 or whatever.  Though, come to think of it, I did read all 1036 pages of Gone With the Wind when in 5th grade.)

Does this make me more like Anne or Elizabeth Elliot?I scored an Elliot! (not a Sir Walter, thank goodness!) )
I can't seem to get this to go behind a cut.  Sorry!

My flister copperbadge challenged us to check out FF.net, search for HP stories with our name in the summary, and...this is the hard part...try not to laugh.

Couldn't do it.

Here are just 2 examples of why:


Oddly, there weren't that many stories with just "meg" in them  meg and megan together had tons more.  "Meg" is apparently a Hungarian word, because there were a lot of lowercase megs in Hungarian summaries.  Also, Meg Cabot is a favorite author to crib.  So, not as much fodder as Sam's search turned up, but pretty funny anyway.

Go, therefore, and do likewise (those of you that are HP fans).
