Sumday Stealing: The Seven Layer Meme

Cheers to all us thieves!

Sumday Stealing: The Seven Layer Meme

Sumday Stealing? So this one is for someday or what?

LAYER 1: Tell us your...

* Name: Berleen
* Birthday (month, day): Dec. 11th (presents welcome)
* Birthplace: Melrose, MN. At least thats where the hospital was.
* Current location: Albany, MN - which is just down the road from the hospital
* Eye color: puppy-dog brown
* Hair color: I really don't remember - a shade of brown
* Height: 5'5
* Righty or lefty: Right
* Zodiac sign: Sagittarius

LAYER 2: What's...

* Your heritage: German, Austrian and a tad bit of Native American (which I'm most proud of and it was a "family secret" for years because one of my uncles wouldn't admit that my dads memory of an old blind indian woman in a rocking chair was true... he finally did and it turned out to be my dads' great-grandmother. )
* The shoes you wore today: I haven't worn any today yet.
* Your weakness: peanut butter or aqua velva aftershave
* Your fears: bears, thunderstorms and knives
* Your perfect pizza: lots of cheese... peperoni, sausage, black olives, green peppers, lots of mushrooms
* Goals you’d like to achieve: to live to be 125
* Your first waking thoughts: the dogs having to go out
* Your best physical feature: my eyes
* Your most missed memory: my mom

LAYER 3: Do you...

* Smoke: a month ago I could have said I quit 10 months ago, but now I just have to answer "yes" to this one.
* Cuss: far too much
* Sing: horribly, according to Demon #2, but well according to the husband
* Do you think you’ve been in love: I hope so... either that or this 13 years I've been married to this dude was a waste of time
* Did you go to college: A vocational college
* Liked high school: School itself, no, but it was better than sitting at home all day doing nothing I suppose. Maybe if I would have had video games it would have been different.
* Want to get/stay married: Yes I do want to stay married because every time this dude & I break up, we end up back together anyway so the divorce costs would get spendy after the first one.
* Believe in yourself: I exist, so I suppose I believe I'm here.
* Think you’re attractive: I didn't get beat with an ugly stick, but my husband once told me I'd never be Miss America so I guess I'm somewhere in the middle.
