Loves meme, loves meme not

Colleen has tagged me for the following love-hate meme (she got it from Deana):

I love to eat: salads and fried okra and green olives and tomatoes and bananas and ... well, I love to eat most fruits and vegetables.
I hate to eat: overly sweet desserts, so if I eat dessert at all, I save a bite or two of bread or okra or any non-sweet thing to get rid of the icky taste.

I love to go: barefoot around the house. (Colleen said, "Barefoot ... because it means it’s warmed up") I pad around like Shoeless Joe all year long, at least in the house. Does that make me a Tennessee hillbilly?
I hate to go: when I'm having fun. Too often that makes me late to the next thing ... that I'll probably enjoy, too.

I love it when: I have great conversations with friends ... that's when time seems to fly and I am totally surprised to discover we've been talking for 2 hours and 24 minutes.
I hate it when: things quit working unexpectedly. Like my car, Maxine, so named because she's a Maxima. Anyway, Maxine left the automobile hospital on Saturday after major surgery (her mechanic likened it to heart surgery), and that same evening, she stalled. I mean, there I was sitting at a red light and Maxine's low idling just ... stopped. I shifted into park and turned the ignition again, but she stalled again. I had to gun the motor to make it to the grocery store. She was idling just fine on Sunday, so I'm hoping I won't have to take Maxine back to her mechanical provider ... that's sort of an automobile HMO, just as her MD is a Mechanical Doctor.

I love to see: rainbows and smiling faces.
I hate to see: scowling faces.

I hate to hear: television commercials featuring salesmen screaming about their products.
I love to hear: laughter, birds waking up in the early morning, gurgles of delight from a baby, and my cat purring when I hold her.

I'm tagging ALL of you to say what you love and don't love in a comment on this post ... or tell me if you do this meme so I can come by and read it. In the meme-time (thanks, Colleen, I'm adopting this word, so feel free to use it in your next game of Scrabble since surely it will show up in the next edition of the OED, now that it's been so widely used ... by you and me), I’m tagging Seamus and Wendy and Ginnie and Jenn and Stephanie and Selma to do this one, if they are feeling meme-ish (I coined this word on Friday, in my last meme post).

And Colleen, bite me! I found this picture, just for you!

Hey, everybody, want to make your own heart sayings, just in time for Valentine's Day? There are several candy heart generators out there, but I used this one:

UPDATE: And I tag Vanilla to do this meme in February, just before Valentine's Day. And I tag all the rest of you to do the same.

Great meme. I'm going to have fun doing it. I also love walking barefoot and hate sweet desserts. I'd rather have cheese and crackers!

Cute meme, especially with the candy hearts!

Oh great! Your hearts hold more words than the one I was using. This was fun to do and to see what others said.

Should I send Maxine a get well card?

Bonnie Jacobs said...

Thanks, Colleen, for thinking of Maxine as she recovers from her major surgery. Yes, you may send her a card, if you feel like it. But I'll let her know you are thinking of her. Today (it's still Monday for me even if the clock says 12:07 a.m. here) she was out running all over town ... with nary a problem, I might add. And that was after starting her day with a good scrapping as I scrapped frost from all her windows ... while she sat there idly puffing steam and warming up for her dash through the cold.

I had a feeling you were a barefoot kind of gal. We should have a club...
Thanks for thinking of me!

Thanks for the tag, Bonnie :) I've posted my response on my blog :)

Brilliant meme! I might have to borrow it sometime :-) Maybe next week, in time for Valentine's Day :-)
