Meme Time

A MEME for you courtesy of Jo a blogger I'm just getting to know. I have her to thank for the inspirational blogger award. And now...
The Rules:

1) You have to post the rules before you give the facts.
2) Players must list one fact that is relevant to your life for each letter in your middle name. If you don’t have a middle name then use a name that you like.
3) When you are tagged, you must write a post containing your own middle name game facts.
4) At the end of your post, you must tag one person for each letter in your middle name. Don’t forget to comment them telling that they are tagged and to read your post to get the rules.

Well Holy Moly. My middle name is Elizabeth Anne. This is going to take a while. Quite possibly it might also be eye bleedinly boring so hang on to your knickers if you're wearin' them.

E- E stands for Eggs. I used to hate them. Then I got knocked up and couldn't eat enough of them. Suddenly I can stomach eggs and often. It kind of disgusts me. Eggs benedict, eggs floretine, scrambled (though never without some sort of seasoning), poached, hard boiled, and on and on. Never prison egg though. NEVER. Or flat egg. Heh.

L- Long toe nails- I have a fear of them. When I see them on people I shiver and probably they notice it too. I shiver, my lip curls and I am blatantly staring at their hooves.

I- Well easy, I no longer think of only myself. OK that is not true. I haven't thought only of myself since I've been married.

Z- Zig-Zag. One Mom recently mentioned that kids are ready to be potty-trained when they zig-zag and can turn corners while running. I am waiting for the zig-zag with quiet desperation. That and I'm still sitting T.D. on the potty.

A- Assume. People always assume that I'm staying home with T.D. and that really my life is that of playdates and fun. I must shop all day and be so rested. HA! Perhaps if I didn't work from home. Stop assuming people you know what it does.

B- Butt. I can be obsessed with mine and making it defy gravity. Or become smaller. I simply refuse to let it go and do it's own natural progression thing. What can I say? I like a firm butt! Or even a semi-firm one. Eating eggs of the cadbury cream variety don't really go with this idea.

E- Evidence. There is evidence to the contrary that my neighbors are picking up their dog poop like the HOA says they are. It's been a year of calls, emails, letters, and talking to them. Still nothing has changed. I pray daily they move. I stepped in poop last week with bare feet. Dried up crusty white poop, but poop all the same. This does not make me want to bake cookies for these people.

T- Two. The only number of children I will have. We're thinking of a second. THINKING. Which is not the same as DOING.

H- Heroes the show. People keep talking about it with the imminent new season about to begin. Do I dare invest myself in another show? I'm just not sold. Yet I already know what "Save the cheerleader, save the world." means.

A- Ha! You thought we were done! Awesome. I was doing an awesome job on the 'nine' challenge and now I'm struggling this week to kick my semi-firm butt back into high gear.

N- Never have I ever had to clean up poop in the bathtub. I'm jinxing myself I know. Never have I ever taken a shot of basically anything. It never stays down. I'm a drinking wuss.

N- Nissan. I drive a Pathfinder and I love it! It handles like a truck and is narrow enough in the driver's seat to be comfortable like a car for me. Plus I really love having my controls on the steering wheel. Her name is Chloe by the way.

E- Anne with an E. That is me. I know. How very Anne of Green Gables that is. Well, yes it is. I got to pick my middle name when I was in middle school as I never had one before. I went back and forth between for years between Elizabeth and Ann. Then I decided to use them both and add the 'e' as I was heavy into my Anne of Green Gables reading and watching. I've never regretted it either.

So there you have it. My meme. Because really? We bloggers all have to do them sometime. I tag Steph from Where in the World and Lauren from Catalog of Bitch. GAME ON ladies!


  1. Damn you! I have two middle names, too! I guess I'll have my work cut out for me tonight.

  2. I love Anne of Green Gables :)


Thanks for commenting! It's always good to hear from a reader and not say, a robot.
