2 Memes I owe and 1 I like - and 1 award!

(Would you forgive me, I won't post in Spanish today)
(Mil disculpas, pero hoy no voy a postear en español)
You wonder what a 'meme' is? Here's a good explanation by Chris G.
Here's a meme I owed Natalia, she passed it onto me back in February.
"Mention three things you always carry in your luggage when you travel, and one that you would like to bring but you almost never do. Explain why. Pass it on to 4 people"

Here are my answers:

  1. Socks: Way more than what I really need.
  2. A small First Aid kit: Just in case...
  3. My CPAP device: It's a pain to carry it around, but I need it so I can sleep.
One thing I would like to bring but I almost never do:
  1. A camera. Sometimes I do have time to take pictures...

I won't pass it on to anybody; please consider yourself tagged.

A few days ago,  I was tagged by Biddie. Here it is:

1. Post the rules before you give your answers. Done
2. List one fact about yourself beginning with each letter of your middle name. If you don't have a middle name, use your maiden name or your mother's maiden name.
3. At the end of your blog post, tag one person (or blogger of another species) for each letter of your middle name. Be sure to leave them a comment telling them they've been tagged. As I said before, consider yourself tagged...

  1. "J" is for jolly. I am (almost) always in a good mood, and I kind of look like Santa...
  2. "O" is for outgoing. I am definitely not shy. How can you be after having sung at church while wearing a pink tutu...
  3. "S" is for strong. I am way stronger than I ever thought I would be, and I'm ready for any challenge life has in store for me. As long as I have Gaby and the kids with me, I will say 'bring it on'. I am a rock.
  4. "E" is for educated. I'm a very polite person; I will always say "good morning", "please" and "thank you", even when I don't get any replies. And I will not tell someone that he/she is a complete idiot, even when it's very evident.

Finally, here's one I liked very much after I saw it at Jamie's blog. Feel free to play (and let me know when -if- you do):

Finally, a moment of self - indulgence: Michelle Johnson from Poetifi has presented me with the "Nice Matters" award.
Can't believe that somebody who writes so well could think this blog is worth nominating. I'm humbled.
Since the "Nice Matters" award was originally intended to be for women, I will assume she's giving it to Florencia, because Michelle loved her singing!
Thank you very much!

  1. Hi Gabriel!

    I enjoyed your memes heree and congrats on your award, although I doubt the flowers are "guy" enough!

    I will be swiping your one-word answer quiz and will post it in a bit.

    Hope you have a safe trip home. Take care!

  2. Che, que bueno eso de que llevas un botiquin de primeros auxilios, me parece super precavido. Con respecto a lo de visitarte no me pierdo un post tuyo. No siempre comento, pero leo todos. A veces lo hago directamente desde mi bloglines. Te mando un abrazo fuerte.

    Congrats on the award. You really are sweet :)
    Your meme was dead, on, too.
    I have been here everyday, but sometimes I can't leave a comment. Dunno why. It's been like that for a few days now....

  6. Oh i enjoyed your glad you participated..i hope you enjoyed it.

  7. JennieBoo, what worries me is that this is the second 'girls only' award I receive. Are they trying to tell me something? :-)

    Nata, gracias por el mensaje. Me alivia saber que estás ahí leyéndome. Se extrañan mucho tus posts, andás muy ocupada?

    DallasMeow, well Fuddruckers is mostly a hamburger joint. One that I love... You know what, I'm going out for lunch right now, I'm going to Fuddruckers!

    Biddie, I have no idea of why you have problems commenting, but the same happens to Gaby... I will have to find out.

    jAMiE, thank you. I did enjoy the meme.
