Ahhhh…I’ve been MEMED (by Mary McKnight at RSS Pieces)!!!!

For those of you that don’t know what a meme is: It’s a thoughtstream carried from one person to another, or, to be more precise, a “unit of cultural information transferable from one mind to the other,” so says Wikipedia. Basically, it’s the blogging equivalent of a chain letter. The cool thing about blogging is that the meme can be tracked. Entire websites are devoted to doing just that. Some memes, however, are deliberate…sort of a social game to build community and engender relationships. I hope this Meme does that with the real estate blogging community.

Here are 5 things you may not know about me:

  1. I’ve grown up in a family of handymen and am a devout do-it-yourselfer. I love fixing just about everything in a home (except dry-wall and plumbing).
  2. I would love to retire in Greece and run a hostel for backpackers.
  3. Interlaken, Switzerland was my favorite city I visited while backpacking Western Europe for 2 months.
  4. I don’t talk politics much on my blog, but I’m a very liberal person. If you are a hard-core Republican, chances are we won’t agree on too many things (but I am very open-minded and willing to listen).
  5. Cats are my favorite animal – when I make the leap and purchase a home or condo, one of the 1st things I’ll do is get a couple of kittens.

Who I am “Tagging”:

Tracking the Mem:

Hope you enjoyed learning a thing or two about me…


  • Wow Greece, one of our programmers is from Greece. Great food, better people, balmy weather. Sounds like the perfect place to retire to. Thanks for sharing, Drew, now we know all your secrets!

  • Very cool Drew! Greece is the word that I’ve heard! And glad you’re handy. We need more folks like you. I am NOT handy.

    Thanks for playing along with this meme. Fun times!

  • Hi Drew, thanks for the link (I seem to be combined with Drew on the latest versions of this meme)! I am so not a handyman, so I envy you (and my wife does too). All the best and Happy Holidays.

    oh no! there is a real term for this?! i mean… i was “memed” for this a few weeks ago but i completely shelved (read: deleted) the request thinking it was the kind of chain letter that i DIDN’T want to engage. oh man. oh man. oh drew. if you and all of these fine bloggers have obliged, i most certainly will too.

    thanks for keeping me straight, as always. thank you. thank you.
