How did you do? Let me know in the comments.

Now, here are the meme rules:

-Link back to the person who gave you the meme (that would be me).
-Reveal seven things about yourself.
-Choose seven other blogs to nominate, and post a link to them.
-Let each of your choices know that they have been tagged by posting a comment on their blog.
-And finally, let the tagger know when your post is up.
Now, I'm tagging these folks:
Lindalou at Our Mush Push,
the Sass at The Sassy Lime, who I know will get question # 1right :),
Gretchie-lou at Richard and Gretchen,
Either of the two 'peas' at Two Peas in a Pod,
Donna at Mamma Mia Days,
the Damsel at Old School (if you haven't attended 'class' with the damsel, you should check this out!)
AND...... anybody else who stops by and wants to. Have fun!
happy meme-ing.......... and don't feel compelled to do this if you HATE memes.

Muum, I certainly don't hate memes and I'm please you thought of me, but I just can't get my brain around 7 things about myself. I laughed out loud at the thought of Utah having soil that's too fertile and NO rocks. We drove through southern UT one time. Gorgeous but ROCKY. I thought for sure you were in the SDA Club with me:) I DID know that you were an iris nut. And I concur, dark chocolate is where it's at!

Lynne's Somewhat Invented Life said...

I dug bags full of iris from a neighbor's garden today. My daughter-in-law wants lots and lots. Maybe she's your cousin. I only took one of each.

I'll think about this quiz. I'm so boring! I don't think there are seven things that are interesting about me. Oh, I know. How do I bore people to death? That's a good one, yes?

Muum said...

donna- good to hear from you!

lynne - 1 each is plenty, they multiply fast! I don't think you are boring. sleep deprived, but NOT boring!

Kylee from Our Little Acre said...

Muum, I failed miserably! I only got two right. And about that chocolate...I don't care for dark chocolate. :-O Milk chocolate is creamier and sweeter and overall yummier in my opinion! My favorite is Hershey's Kisses with the meltaway centers. Good stuff!

Thanks for playing along!

Emily said...

I did pretty good. I have to admit that I didn't score myself as I went. But I don't hate your nickname for me! It's just exclusive to you. I hate it when OTHER people call me Em. :)

Muum said...

Kylee- I'm glad there are so many types of chocolate around - everybody can have what they like.

Em- oh, good, you are a good sport with the whole nick name thing.

I know this is really old but I took it anyway. I figured I might as well since I'm scrolling through all of your posts to get advice about how to not kill greenery. Anyway, I did fabulously. I only missed one, although, I think you are actually mistaken with the answer. EVERYBODY knows milk chocolate is the best:)
