Hello, Meme. How YOU Doin'?  
I really miss Joey from friends. The rest of 'em, not so much. But I did love me some Joey. *sigh*

Anyway, so here's a meme that I thought was a touch more interesting than the 'what are you wearing right now' ones. (And incidentally, grey sweats and a black and grey sweatshirt, if you were dying to know.) ;)

That aside, I present to you: Carrie's Meme! (Super catchy title, huh? I know. It's because I'm wonderfully creative and awesome like that.)

CARRIE'S MEME

What's your idea of hell on earth?

Wal-Mart. More specifically, Wal-Mart any other time but 7:30 in the morning, when the masses of people who go all other times of the day are not there. Really, I hate crowds. Not into crowds. I love where I live with the wide open spaces in front of me so I don't feel smushed. Oh, and the mall (any mall) at Christmas time? Or that Black Friday nonsense? Noooooo. Not I, said the Carrie.

Carrie in no way affiliates Wal-mart with Satan. She just feels that were she to go to hell, instead of the fire and brimstone, there would be a yellow smiley face. That's all she's sayin'.


What's your least favorite thing to shop for?
Nolan's clothes. He's an impossible size to fit, XLT, and 36x36 pants. Too big for the normal stores, and too small for the big and tall. And men's clothes are ridiculously expensive. It's like they hold a gun to your head at Dillard's. I also hate shopping for jeans for me. It's demoralizing. If they fit my hips, they gap in the waist. *shakes fist at clothing designers*

What's your favorite thing to shop for?
Shoes? My feet never change sizes. And stuff for the house. Throw rugs. Kitchen utensils. Hand towels!

What's the most difficult thing you've ever experienced?
It really isn't something I like to talk about openly. With everyone. But I can say that God is good, and I'm fine. :) My parents' divorce did suck out loud, though.

What's the greatest thing you've ever done?
My boys are my greatest accomplishment. I'm pretty darn proud of the little men they're growing to be.

If you could have any quality, what would it be?
I'd like to have a higher metabolism.
I'd like to able to harmonize without a huge amount of rehearsal.
I'd like to have the drive to always finish what I start.
To be naturally neat.
To like gourds. To make the pumpkin my new king. (Psyche!)

(Did she just say 'psyche' like they did in the late eighties? Why, yes. yes, she did.)

Have you ever written anything on your website that you've regretted?
Pfft. Hi. I'm Carrie. I blurt. Usually, if I have poster's remorse, I delete, or don't answer the comments.

Who's your favorite person to hang out with?
Nolan Kyle. He's the best, and no one 'gets me' like he does. Also, I love hanging out online with the girls from the rpg. They're all kids of awesome.

What do you want to do with your life?
I'm doin' it, baby.

You killed me here.

You're in fine form today, Miss Carrie. :)

Well, you are wonderfully creative and awesome like that ;) I love your running monologue, lol. And I say 'psyche' all the time. X)

Snagging this one :)

Thank goodness other people still say, 'psyche!' I think it's woefully underused.

What a rockin' meme! I loved it and will be doing it myself tonight from home.

I especially love your hell on earth. I am proud to say I've not stepped FOOT in a Wal-Mart in over ten years. When you have more teeth than the rest of the people in the store combined... it's time to shop somewhere else.

Fab meme. I love the running commentary that you had going on. :)

PS: I have the same problem with my jeans. I buy them for my generous butt size (!!) and then rip them at the waist, and stitch it together again taking in a lot of denim in the process. How do you deal with the same problem?

Oh yea! Wal-mart is pretty bad. But I still gather all my courage once a month & force myself to go, buying everything I might possibly need cause it's cheap!
