6 Word Memoir Meme and Then Some

I was tagged by Jenster who was tagged by Seaspray to do a Memoir Meme. I don't know how interesting my memoir will be, but we'll see.
I am going to break the rules and write six things each in the Likes and Dislikes category.

Likes: God, Corn, Computers, Kids, Books, Family

Dislikes: Hell, Peas, Cats, Rock (music), Phones, Baseball (major league)

Here are the rules:
1. Write your own six word memoir.
2. Post it on your blog and include a visual illustration if you want.
3. Link to the person that tagged you in your post and to the original post if possible so we can track it as it travels across the blogosphere
4. Tag at least five more blogs with links.
5. Leave a comment on the tagged blogs with an invitation to play.

I tag Sony, Cat, Yolie (mom), Angela, and Eileen.

Don't feel like you have to do it... =)

I open the headline news and this is what I see...

Major Earthquake is a Sure Bet (!!!)

And where is this earthquake going to hit? California. Of course. I remember when the Northridge earthquake happened, I was pretty young and it pretrified me. We were used to little quakes but this one was the "Big One".

I hate it when people say, "This is earthquake weather.". I wait for it to hit and when it doesn't, I am relieved until I hear it again, "This is earthquake weather.".

So, the Big One will happen within the next 30 years. Most likely in Southern Cal. Lovely. Maybe I'll plan a move in the next 15 years to Arizona until it's all done.

I went to my Grandma's grave on Saturday. It was so hot in the hills. Over 100 degrees. I honestly didn't feel any connection with the memory of her there. No connection. But it was nice to go with my aunts and know that they found comfort there. I was overly concerned with the fact that my legs were about to catch on fire and making sure my umbrella was covering most of my body. It's too hot in LA to really enjoy. I'm so glad I live in the OC!

I dislike talking on the phone, especially for long periods of time. Cell-phones, however, are a much different story because they're so handy for getting through to Jeff right away.

I agree with the grave thing. I felt absolutely no connection to my grandma at hers, either. It's the memories I hold in my heart that I think of when I'm missing her most.

I love your memoirs! I'm with you and Becky on the phones thing. I hate talking on the phone. Most of the time, anyway.

I remember the Northridge - I was 20 or 21 - you baby!! lol You can move to Pennsylvania...

It was nice for the women of your family to visit the grave together, but I totally get what you're saying about no connection.

Love the memoir idea ladies... unfortunately when it came time for me to tag someone on my blog, I discovered that I am a dead end... ha ha ha... awwwww...

I know what you mean Deb about visiting Grandma's grave... even though I haven't been there since the funeral, I can't imagine why a place that I've only been to once would cause any emotional reaction. I get more of a response from hearing a TV blaring in another room or seeing something in the mall... things that I associate with Grandma... (o:

I HATE the phone. There is only 1 person that I will sit on the phone and talk to and even that's pushing it sometimes!

So corn ranks right up with God, huh? I'll have to give this some thought, but thanks for tagging me.

Becky & Jenster - Me and phones don't get along. The only thing I like about cell phone is texting. I don't mind it, but talking, ugh.

Cat - I agree with the whole memory thing. I feel closer to her when her face pops in my head or I can "feel" her soft cushy arm, again, in my head.

Angela - LOL, Corn isn't that great, but it's pretty close. I don't know where this love for corn came from, but it's right up there. =)
