First time ever!

It was bound to happen...after all - I have been blogging for more than a year now, you know!

So yep, here it is...In the Throne Room's first Meme - courtesy of Diane at Diane's Place - so thanks for the inspiration (and the questions) Diane! Let's get started, k?

1.] How come I can never find:
A deposit slip to the right account when I need one? When I have a business deposit, inevitably I have my personal checkbook on me and vice versa. I've decided to be a bit smarter and start carrying a few of each in my car's glove compartment. Why didn't I think of that sooner, hmm?

2.] I wish I'd never started: Smoking at the age of 13. Now, I no longer smoke...haven't for 20+ years. But it was a stupid habit to pick up in the first place. Ugh.

3.] I wonder why: Everything seems different in the dark, scarier somehow. I guess I'm just a sunshine kind of gal!

4.] Mama always told me: "How you yell into the woods is how it comes back to you." The German version of "do unto others." Words to live by.

5.] There's this one thing in my closet that I just can't seem to get rid of: Pocketbooks. And it's not just one. HA! What's a word for "(way) more than many?" I just can't part with a single one - I have a serious handbag addiction. (And my Sweet Hubby was quite the "enabler" - just so you know!) But shhh, it'll be our little secret, right?!

6.] My favorite guilty pleasure is: Frozen low or nonfat yogurt from The Skinny Dip. Oh...the coconut is out of this world delicious. Trust me! However, if I'm to be totally honest here - I almost never feel guilty!

7.] I always forget to: Recharge my cell phones until the verrrrry last minute. Umm yeah, sorry...didn't reaaallly hang up on you!

8.] I have never: Owned a gun, fired a gun, touched a gun. Never, ever. And don't plan to.

9.] I'm obsessed with:
Well, my obsessions change frequently but currently it's "Brickbreaker" on my Blackberry. It's a game...reminds me of "Pong" from the (very) old Atari days.

10.] One of my favorite memories is: Going to the farmer's market in Germany with my Opa when I was 4. The smells...oh the smells are with me till this day. How I wish we had a farmer's market the likes of that one...

Well, there you have it. 10 pieces of Gigi Trivia that you could have gone the rest of your life without knowing, right?! Hope you had even the tiniest bit of fun - I know I did!

"Our mouths were filled with laughter, our tongues with songs of joy. Then it was said among the nations, 'The Lord has done great things for them.'" Psalm 126.2

Hi, Gigi. Happy belated birthday!

I had to laugh at #9 on your list. I'm a software engineer and did my own version of "Brick Breaker", as a demo for a class I was teaching. I've never touched a Blackberry, iPod, or iPhone, but I do remember playing that game on an old Mac or something ancient like that. My version has a bug that occasionally causes the ball to bounce incessantly around the paddle! LOL!

I loved it and you did so well!

Lots of love

Good job, Gigi! I'm glad you decided to do the meme. You made out like a trooper, nobody would ever know it's your first meme. ;o)

And I love purses and shoes, but purses more I think.

Happy weekend!

Love and hugs,
