Friday Fun: Memes The Blogger's Game


Friday Fun is Diva Marketing's virtual happy hour from cosmos to Jack to lemonade. A waiting for the weekend 'playground' time to be sophisticated-silly. Or sometimes just plain silly.

Red_rover Red rover red rover send me right over. Recently I was tagged by two BBFs Peter Kim and Cyndee Haydon to play in a couple of memes. Peter's game is 4x4 Things About Me and Cyndee's is called 7 Facts About Me.

Ann Handley, who recently launched her very own diva fabulous blog - Annarchy - had this to say about why join in the game -

So why would you publish these few revealing details for strangers to gawk at? The short answer, of course, is that none of you are exactly strangers; and, what’s more, it’s all about getting to know a bit more about each other.

It's rather nice to be asked to play (sometimes - smile) and I don't think Peter or Cyndee would mind if I followed Ann's example and combined both into one mega meme. So here goes .. and it might be nice to have your beverage of choice near by.

For Pete: 4 x 4 things about me

Four jobs I've had in my life:
Brownie Leader - in Boston's Back Bay and Beacon Hill. (I think volunteer work should count!)
Cashier at a a swimming pool - high school summer job. so much fun. crushes on the lifeguards!
Hawked the Boston Phoenix newspaper - college pick-up $
Georgia Lottery - great fun giving away $$

Four places I've been:
Belize City, Belize River - boat ride through the jungle was amazing and so surreal I thought I was in a Disney movie
Paris, France - perhaps the most beautiful city in the world
Hydra, Greece - wonderful, warm people, fabulous food. time seems to stop.
New York, NY - it's more than a city .. it's a state of mind.

Four TV shows I DVR:
SNL - a classic
SITC  - wouldn't want to disappoint you!
Iron Chef - love the creativity under fire
Desperate Housewives - great escape

Four favorite foods:
Ice cream
Fried clams - with bellies
Hot corned beef sandwich with lots of pickles

Peter asked for 4 people to be tagged. Red rover red rover send  Rick Short, Jason Kapler, Jack Yan, Robert Bruce right over. Sidebar: Since Cyndee asked for Seven Fabulous Women it seemed only fair to tag guys for the 4x4.

For Cyndee: 7 Facts About Me

1. Wine or beer - wine
2. Dog or cat - Dog 
3. Mountains or ocean - ocean
4. Coffee or tea - Coffee
5. NYC or LA - NYC
6. Summer or Winter: Summer
7. PJs or nothing - ??? ;-)

undefined rules are to tag Seven Fabulous Women. Red rover red rover send some of the W List Women Michele Lamar, Carolyn Townes,  Tammy Lenski,  Average Jane, Glenda Watson Hyatt, Sunny Cervantes Holly Buchanan right over.

If you still want to know more .. I had the honor of being part of Kevin O'Keefe's LexBlog's Interview Series with Rob LaGatta.  The interview is split into two posts - one and two.

Speaking of honors, a belated but heartfelt thanks to Holly Buchanan for including Diva Marketing in her 2007 Best Marketing To Women Blogs.

@Cyndee - Much as we sometimes grumble .. memes are a great way to tell a bit more about you and to discover how we are more alike than not. Thanks for including me in yours!
