The mother of these two cuties, Amy, tagged me for the "Motherload Meme." You choose a post and take the first ten bloggers who commented on that post. I chose to go back to Honestly?, because it was a Saturday, and I really appreciate my weekend visitors :) Not on the list? Please read anyway; I've offered up a few great links and do want you to meet these nice folks.
1. Janice-This woman is a fighter, let me tell you.
2. Weaselmomma-Personality Plus, she has.
3. Michelle-My dear baby sister
4. Tena-A great friend to all
5. Kim & Company, a busy mom and massage therapist that I wish was my neighbor!
6. Melissa B-a humble scribe
7. Kazzy-Always pondering
8. Geri (My dear big sister who has no blog, so I'm just giving her a plug here; love you, sis!) Naomi-a real character with character :)
9. Heidi-Published author of Miss Delacourt Speaks Her Mind
10. Linda S-Her comment that day touched me a great deal.
Rule 2. The meme questions: 10 Blogs, 15 Questions.
What is your favorite post from #3's blog? Definitely The Colorful Massage, in which Michelle wrote this, among other hilarious observations:
"My logical mind KNEW she wasn't going to try and cop a feel, but what if she did? Every once in a while, I wondered if she might accidentally 'slip' and touch my junk. And what if I liked it?"
Has #10 taken any pictures that have moved you? Just this one; it moved me to start my Thanksgiving shopping list :)Does #6 reply to comments on her blog? Not that I have seen. Maybe via email?
Which part of Blogland is #2 from? That one's easy; Weaselmomma is from some place in Wisconsin. (She has avoided my questioning on this, but I think that's natural when you fear being stalked.)
If you could give one piece of advice to #7 what would it be? That would be to keep on pondering, because I am enjoying it. Case in point, this post, in which Kazzy reflects on a favorite Christmas tradition at her house.
Have you ever tried something from #9's blog? I've tried writing a book. In fact, I've tried a few times. Each effort sits, collecting dust somewhere in this house. See, that's the difference between writing success and writing wannabeeness; initiative, drive, and perseverance, all of which Heidi has plenty.
Has #1 blogged something that inspired you? Janice inspires me every day. She is fighting an uphill climb with certain people standing by, doing their best to push her back down on a regular basis. Still, she is a trooper. I really admire Janice. She's clawing her way up the nursing school mountain; don't be afraid to throw her a lifeline and leave a supportive comment.
How often do you comment on #4's blog? Maybe twice per week, and she has yet to block me.
Do you wait excitedly for #8 to post? Naomi is the laid-back type. She writes about life in a way that is comfortingly relaxed. I enjoy popping in to her blog at a leisurely pace and catching up, usually on weekends.
How has #5's blog changed your life? Kim and I have only "known" each other a short time, so she hasn't had much time to make an life-changing impact. However, she did write an adorable post recently about a certain young man pleasuring himself in her shower, and just typing this makes me smile all over again.
Do you know any of your 10 bloggers in person? My sisters. I'm hoping to bump into Weaselmomma one day, maybe at a Packer Game? :)
Do any of your 10 know each other? Michelle and Geri are the only ones who know each other, as far as I know.
Out of the 10, which updates more frequently? Does anybody really care about this question? I think it's a dumb one, so I'm changing it to Which of these bloggers do you think would tell you if you had spinach in your teeth? Weaselmomma, Michelle, and probably Naomi.
Which of the 10 keep you laughing? Michelle (which is why I wish she would blog more often.) Weaselmomma and Tena can fight for second place.
Which of the 10 made you cry (good or bad) tears? Boy, that's a tough one. I don't remember doing either for any of these (guess I'm a cold-hearted, emotionless beotch!) Maybe it's just because of this being one of the last questions, I can't remember.
So, if I posted about your blog, it is your turn! Carry the torch, if you feel inspired :)
