Private Eye Babe here, reporting on the growing popularity of a previously mentioned phenomenon hitting Blogworld called…The Meme. My initial investigation has turned up some pretty interesting findings. Apparently blogging and meme’s go together like peas and carrots, or Forrest and Jen-nay. From the American Heritage Dictionary: meme (mēm) n. A unit of cultural information, such as a cultural practice or idea, that is transmitted verbally or by repeated action from one mind to another. To this point, I, too, am asking what the heck does that have to do with blogging. Let me explain further, friends. That definition apparently does not pertain to the blogging type of meme’s. In Blogworld, a meme is an idea or question that is passed among blogs. Say I post a question/statement regarding how you feel about something. An example would be to refer to my AHA blog below and then ask for any personal experiences, etc. You then share your take on it with others by talking about it on your blog, linking to mine and commenting on my post. I could name it something like ‘Tuesday’s Take’. I think even something like Wordless Wednesday would also be considered somewhat of a meme since I’ve seen it repeated on many other blogs. Not that I started that one, I copied it from someone’s blog, probably Elizabeth’s. So there you have it, folks. The meme has been explained. Private Eye Babe, at your service. I need more to investigate. Gimme ideas.

I would also like to do a little plug here for Jillian Michael’s ‘The 30 Day Shred’. It’s a relatively new workout DVD and HOLY COW is it awesome. I am loving it. Thank you, Sabrina, for suggesting it! I am on my second week and already I feel stronger and healthier. Sam and Lizzie are doing it with me, too. We’ll all be toned and firmed up and tight in no time. I have 2 girls at work that I’ve started on it. They like it as much as I do!

Ahhh…it’s Friday. What would be a good Friday Meme. Maybe I should look up what other folks are Memeing about on Friday. I think I saw one a long time ago so I’ll just do this Friday Four. Four things you cannot live without. Or Four things you think you cannot live without. Mine are as follows:

1. My God
2. My Family
3. My books
4. Mashed potatoes

There you have it. My essentials. Have a wonderful weekend and give me your Friday Four.
