As much as we are opposed to blog/facebook/internet games ,we were intrigued by our latest offer. The following is in response to a challenge posted by our sister-in-law, Karalee, on a topic called meme.

To find out what a meme is, click here. Meme asks us to tell you 6 quirky, random or inconsequential facts about ourselves. The rules for meme are: (1) Link to the person that tagged you. (2) Post the rules on your blog. (3) Share six non-important things/habits/quirks about yourselves. (4) Tag six random people at the end of your post by linking to their blogs. (5) Let each random person know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their website.

  1. Trevor must sleep with the fan on every night and has done so for the majority of his life. The reason... he believes that aliens will not think to include the sound of a fan when they abduct him; therefore, the disappearance of the background noise will awaken him and the aliens will be forced to abandon their abduction.

    Koreans are horrified by the thought of sleeping with a fan on. You may as well be telling them to kill their firstborns. For more information on the Korean myth of fan death check out this entry:

  2. When I, Rachel, got engaged to Trevor, I didn't even know how to properly spell his last name. Was it Olson with an 'o' or Olsen with an 'e'? I was too embarrassed to ask so I just snuck quick glances at his wallet whenever I could. I am happy to announce that before we were married I figured out that I would spend the rest of my life as a 'son' not a 'sen'.

  3. We live in Korea, and have for almost 2 years now, yet we still do not speak a lick of the mother tongue. Needless to say we are proficient in the art of hand signals and fluent in Konglish, which is a language composed of a lot of Korean with a little bit of random English. To experience Konglish first hand, check these out:

  4. When we moved to Korea we thought long and hard, and decided it would be a good idea to get a dog. So along came our little Yorkshire Terrier whom we named, Kimchi. Yes, we named our dog after the most popular side-dish in a country that serves kimchi while eating dog.

  5. We have been to North Korea a few times and even have the passport stamps to prove it.

  6. I love gummy candies SO MUCH that when I see a bucket, a barrel or a tub of them I will eat myself silly. Now the problem with this is that I have super-ultra-hypersensative teeth and the high sugar content sets them ringing. Even through my tears, I am still stuffing them in by the handfuls. The pain isn't enough to bring me to my senses.

    So when I ask you to send me these delightful treats for Christmas or other special occasions, please remember my lapse in judgment and only send a few at a time.

Well, now that we have aired our strange and abnormal laundry I would like to recommend the following people for a meme blog:

Hey Friends,

I think that between my unreliable internet connection and lack of exclusive blogger friends, I can't pass on the meme - but reading about your quirks has been great:) Thanks for thinking of me - sorry to be lame this time around:(
