Uh-oh, I think I caught that meme that's going around :)

But seriously, my friend Mary-Eileen whose blog has recently been resurrected from the dead (or perhaps that would be defunct) has memed me.

Here’s a fun quiz made up especially for bloggers. The rules are easy. Just post the quiz on your blog and answer the questions, then pass it on to five other bloggers, and link to them in your post. Be sure to link back to the one who sent it to you.
1. Do you attend the Traditional Latin Mass or the Novus Ordo? Novus Ordo.

2. If you attend the TLM, how far do you drive to get there? N/A.

3. If you had to apply a Catholic label to yourself, what would it be? I've always liked the term I heard from Dr. Mahrt once upon a time - Smokin' Catholic. Not quite sure how to explain that one to the Jehovah's Witnesses who frequent our neighborhood, but it makes perfect sense to me. :)

4. Are you a comment junkie? Um... I like comments - probably even "really like" comments (who doesn't?). Not quite sure what they're looking for here.

5. Do you go back to read the comments on the blogs you’ve commented on? I try to remember, but I'm sure I don't always manage.

6. Have you ever left an anonymous comment on another blog? Only once - in such a way that the blogmistress knew exactly who I was and I was thereby able to keep a fun surprise she was preparing from being "leaked."

7. Which blogroll would you most like to be on? I try not to think about that sort of thing too much.

8. Which blog is the first one you check? There are just a few I tend to check regularly outside of Google Reader, either to see what blog posts they've selected (including Ana and my sister) or because their RSS feed isn't working (like Danielle Bean).

9. Have you met any other bloggers in person? Gosh. Yes, I can assure you that the following bloggers do exist in real life as well as on the Net - Mary-Eileen, Nancy, Ana, Willa, Dr. Thursday, Robert Gotcher, Alice, Maureen, Margaret, Nutmeg, Michele Q., Matt Lickona, Chestertonian, Suzanne, MacBeth, Lissa, Elizabeth, Dr. Mahrt and Ed Peters. I won't get into family members for now. :)

This list probably sounds a lot more impressive than it is since some of these I met at TAC long before they were bloggers and a few I only briefly shook hands with at a homeschool conference long before they were bloggers. A number of them I am grateful to call friends.

10. What are you reading? Like M.E., I'm also reading Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, but for the second time. I'm always in the middle of multitudinous books - so here are just a few of the others: Jesus of Nazareth by Pope Benedict XVI, The Aeneid, Jack and Jill by Louisa May Alcott and We Look for Kingdom by Carl Sommer.

Now you see, I got tagged for this meme as well and I have to admit to being a little stumped: what does my traditional Catholic inclinations have to do with my being a comment junkie? Does one lead to the other?

Your list was interesting, Alicia. And what a tally of famous bloggers you've met! (With the exception of yours truly :)

Excellent point about the comments junkie question!
