What's a "meme?"

Whether you pronounce it "meme" rhyming with "cream" or "meme" as in "memory," it's all the same. I prefer the latter. In the blogging world, someone posts a list of questions on their site and then tags everyone else to answer those same questions. They are generally not multiple choice and hopefully encourage a little more creativity than a yes-or-no survey. Sometimes you see a meme on someone else's site and even though you weren't tagged, you decide to post on your blog with the same list of questions.

So, being a good SSR, that's where I come in. I saw this on someone else's site. Not sure whose it was and really not sure how I even got there. But, I'm stealing it and I'm sure it will mutate along the way. I'm hoping that y'all will do it on your sites too. Therefore, I'm not "tagging" anyone. But, this gives you something to do if you haven't posted in a while.

This is a meme with picture answers. The plan is to google (image) your answer and then pick one of the pictures from the first page of results. Here we go....

1 What age will you be at your next birthday?
2 Where would you like to travel?3 Where is your favorite place?4 What are your favorite pasttimes?5 What is your favorite food?6 What is your favorite animal?7 What is your favorite color?8 In what town were you born?9 In what town do you live?10 What is the name of a past pet?11 What is your current pet's name?

12 What is your best friend's nickname?13 What is your nickname? (first one is what my Dad calls me - last one is my high school nickname)14 What is your first name?15 What is a bad habit you have?16 What was your first job?17 What was your favorite job?18 What is your grandmother's name?19 What was your college major?

See - it's fun! DO IT!!
