Where did the word "meme" come from anyway?

I got tagged by Leo, which was awfully sweet. What is it about memes and blogs? You don't see them for months, even years and then all of a sudden they're all over the place. I just did one a few posts ago. I don't think I'm going to do any more memes after this one. I'd rather you get to know me slowly, by reading my thoughts. It's more natural, and more fun for me that way.

But here goes this one:

5 Things I was doing 10 years ago:

1) Adoring three little girls ages 1, 2 and 5.
2) Working at HASC in Woodmere, NY.
3) Freaking out alot of the time.
4) Lots of gardening.
5) Starting to become very active in the sisterhood of our synagogue.

5 Things on my to-do list today:

1) Get a good night's sleep.
2) Print out pictures stored in my camera and computer; back them up as well.
3) Make some doctor's appointments.
4) Call NBN to have them help me organize a way for olim to get grandfathered in as therapists under the new licensing laws for speech therapists, OTs, and PTs here in Israel.
5) Learn how to identify and edit run-on sentences.

5 snacks I love:

1) Pizza.
2) Pizza.
3) Pizza.
4) Pizza
5) Pizza.

5 Things I'd do if I were a millionaire:

1) I would try-try-try to live within my means.
2) I'd put money away for the kids.
3) Give a chunk of it to Chai Lifeline.
4) Travel.
5) Invest wisely. (These days that means keeping it all under my mattress).

5 places I have lived:

1) Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
2) Kibbutz Be'erot Yitzchak, Israel.
3) Midwood, Brooklyn.
4) Cedarhurst, Long Island, New York.
5) Modi'in, Israel.

5 jobs I have had:

1) Worked in the kitchen at Camp Moshava. (FUN!!!)
2) Call girl.
3) Camp counselor.
4) Customer service at a Jewelry place on 47th Street, NYC.
5) Speech language pathologist.

And there you have it.

I'm going to be bold and BREAK THE CHAIN. I am not tagging anyone. Just don't feel like it. You can all thank me in the comment section.

Good night.

One meme I won't be doing; thanks Baila.

Leora said...

Yes, thanks, Baila.

So, will you be writing a post about the pizza Anakim from Modiin for KCC? My kids liked it.

>Learn how to identify and edit run-on sentences.
Your own or someone else's or both?

What do you mean you were a call girl?
I know you've been away from the States for a while, but around here, a call girl is a highly paid hooker. (Hmm, I think that I'd like to hear this story)

Unknown said...

Call girl?
I'm dying to hear this one.

Baila said...


Yes, Raizy, I know what a call girl is.

I was just checking to see if anyone actually reads this drivel. Raizy and Leo, you guys win!

Of course, I was not a call girl. I was what they called a "good girl". (But I did enjoy hearing those other girl's stories!)

Baila said...

And Leora, I've been dying to do a post on pizza in Modiin, but there are so many kosher pizza places here, and so little time...maybe ill do something for KCC along those lines.

SuperRaizy said...

Yes, we actually DO read the drivel.
I can't believe you lied on the internet. Don't you know that nobody lies on the internet?
Oh, and stay tuned to superraizy later for the true story of how I became George Clooney's love slave.

call girl, high priced without a doubt. I have heard about the street of williamsburg.

speaking of sisterhood events I got bamboozled into going to one tonight and I will miss you, ah the good old days.

Thanks for the laugh--as usual.

Unknown said...

Not a former call girl? Zounds!

You a call girl & Raizy a love slave!
