“ASK ME, UH-HO-HO, ASK ME” (a meme a go go)

Amy, the author of Three Fallen Women and blogger and friend, started a meme today and I, um, tagged myself. “Here is how it goes… I’m going to answer the five questions my friend asked me. I don’t tag you. You tag yourself. If you want to participate, leave “‘Ask me, uh-ho-ho, ask me” in the comments section of this post and I’ll then send you five questions that I am dying to ask of you. You post the questions and your answers to the questions on your blog. (You might want to include this explanation for clarity. Feel free to just link to this one instead of worrying about having to re-explain it, if that is easier.) When others comment on your blog asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions that you are dying to ask of them. Got it? Good.”

1. Leah, have you ever been so pissed off that you did something outrageous that now is really funny? What was it? What did you do?

I hit a teacher.

Um, yeah, kids get kicked out of school and tossed in jail for that now. But he was being a male chavaunist pig and I was being your typical, self-rightious, 15-year-old HS sophomore. I don’t even remember exactly what he said, but it was in saxophone master class and he was being a jerk. So I smacked him across the face. Ouch. Then I stormed out of the room. Not exactly a shining moment, unless my life was a movie, in which case it was brilliant.

2. Leah, if you were going to get a full arm of tattoo-piece, what would it depict?

I have no idea, but it wouldn’t be cliche. It wouldn’t be abstract either. I don’t know. A ton of hebrew? Something cryptic? Fish? A light blue ribbon? That’s it. A light blue ribbon, falling and curling down my arms. (Because the same color blue is used in the Chicago flag, the Argentine flag and the Israeli flag.)

3. Leah, what is your favorite word today and why?

Ahem. It’s my favorite word to use in IM with people and I use that a lot at work. Much more effective than email, but leaves a record unlike phone calls. I’m also thinking “scritch-scratch” for no particular reason.

4. Leah, when you look in the mirror, what part of yours are you glad to see just as it is?

My eyes and my glasses, I’m pretty happy with them. And as big as my feet are, if they were any smaller I’d fall down. I like the middle parts too. My body and I, we’re getting on good terms with each other.

5. Leah, how many of the 50 states have you visited? (Hint: airports do not count)

I have been to 22 of 50, not including layovers. Not so bad, not so bad.

Soooooooooooooooooooo…. If you want to be tagged in the Meme A Go Go, leave me a comment and then I’ll leave you five burning questions.

UPDATE: And from Diane at Sparktacular, the following five questions.

1. Leah, if you could only eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be?
This will seem strange, but I’m gonna go eggs. Cause as a base item, they are very versatile. Unless I can’t have cooking utenstils, in which case I’m gonna go… peanut butter? Avocados? Ice Cream? Oreo Cookies? OH NO! This is hard…. I’m gonna have to say…. Popcorn.
2. Leah, complete this sentence: Love is __________.
Love is the only thing we really write about, the only real theme. It is the basis for all our stories, for all our products, for all our relationships. Love is oxygen.
3. Leah, what would you say was your greatest accomplishment in 2006?
Professionally I got into the me2revolution at Edelman, that rocks. Para-professionally, I started writing a bunch of places regularly. Jewishly, I worked on my Hebrew a bunch and went to Israel.
4. Leah, imagine you get a week off with no loss of wages and when you get back to work, everything is exactly as it was when you left. How would you spend that week?
No loss of wages, but no extra money? Phone off, internet off, lots of coffee drinkin’, errand runnin’, and putzing around Chicago. Take the train downstate and see my sister on a weekday. Lots of good things can be done from the city in one week.
5. Leah, if you could meet one famous woman, living or dead, who would it be?
This should be an easy answer, but you are just letting me meet one and she has to be famous. Er… um… Katherine Hepburn?
