Monday Mayhem - #40 ~ Ten Anyone? Meme

Monday Mayhem #40 "Ten Anyone?" Meme

1. Why do you blog?

Mostly it’s for the creative outlet, but it’s also nice having people appreciate my stuff.  But I'd like to have more people checking out my two other blogs:

My Haiku

2. Name your three best memories.

• Our honeymoon
• The birth of our son
• Our trip to Hawaii

3. Name 4 of the best fiction books you've read.

Best?  Hmmm…
How about four good ones off the top of my head, in no particular order?
• “Something Wicked This Way Comes” by Ray Bradbury
• “Nine Princes In Amber” by Roger Zelazny
• “A Fine And Pleasant Misery” by Patrick McManus
• “Watership Down” by Richard Adams

4. What are the 5 best movies ever made? (and that I love....)

Again, off the top of my head, in no particular order:

• “Hero”
• “The Matrix”
• “Monty Python And The Holy Grail”
• “Blade”
• “Barbarosa”

5. Name 5 things I can't live without.

(I was going to answer this literally - oxygen, water, heat, etc - but instead I answered in what I felt to be the spirit of the question)

• Music
• Chili
• Fishing
• Coffee
• Photography

6. If you could change your name what would it be?

Bubba, since that’s what they call me anyway.

(Easier for me to remember it that way)

7. Tell us a unique and interesting fact about yourself.

My distant cousin - 2nd cousin to my paternal grandmother - was Robert Pershing Wadlow, the world’s tallest man.

(I know it’s not interesting in regards to myself, but it’s something)

8. What do you love best about yourself?

There are many awesome things I just love about myself!  Sometimes having such a rich variety of noteworthy and vastly-superior traits can make it difficult to single-out just one as being above all others.

But, when it comes right down to it, the thing I love most about myself is my AWESOME HUMILITY!

I mean honestly, is there anybody anywhere in the world – heck, in the universe - who is more humble than myself?  I don’t believe so; I’m too amazingly humble!

9. If you had a "Freaky Friday" experience, who would you change places with?

At first I thought of Hugh Hefner, but he’s so old now that it just wouldn’t be the same.  I’d change places with Bill Gates, then send myself a bunch of cash!

Which would make being me EVEN MORE AWESOME!  And, of course, I’d be even more HUMBLE!  (If that’s even possible!)

10. What is the best thing about being a woman.

I’ll have to guess (being a man) that having a child is pretty high on the list.

Of course, that’s not counting the weight gain, cravings, rollercoaster emotions, back pain, swollen feet, leaky breasts, tearing and…

Wait, can I change my answer?

Give it a try! Monday Mayhem


  1. Bubba? Too funny.
    Thanks so much for playing!

  2. Hard to be humble when you're perfect in every way, isn't it, Bubba?

    I love the Holy Grail but it came in as an alternate to my top five. Cubby, my son, is now a Python Fan and it's difficult to mention that movie without a quote fest happening between him and Mr. Bears. (shudder)

    Glad you stopped by today. Enjoy your week!

    Sugar Tits

  3. #8 & #10, ROFLMAO! So needed that laugh after the day I had. You too funny!

    Hun, at 6am in the morning, before the caffeine has had a chance to kick in, 'the bed' is ALWAYS the best memory. ^_~

  4. Wow. The world's tallest man? That's pretty cool. Are you tall? ;)

  5. Something wicked this way comes. Kokak!

    Coming soon: November 19th :)

    Was it Mae West who said this - "Don't be too humble. You're not that great"?

    A Guinness tall relative surely is interesting.

  6. Hell no you can't change your's perfect as is ROFLMAO!!!!

  7. You are dead on with your movies. The Matrix was so unreal. The sequels sucked, but that first!

  8. 1. Because I can.

    2. My wedding and the births of my 2 girls.

    3. Moby Dick by Melville
    Shantaram by Gregory David Roberts
    Franny and Zooey by J. D. Salinger
    The Alexandria Quartet by Lawrence Durrell

    4. Babette's Feast
    Kill Bill 1 & 2
    One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest
    Easy Rider

    5. Books

    6. Her Royal Highness Princess Dragonfly

    7. I own several thousand books and have read them all more than once.

    8. My love of books and reading.
