Middle Meme

Shellie, over at Little But Loud, has tagged me with the infamous middle name meme! After my last two posts, I thought a short one might be welcome. :) Here are the rules:

1) You must post the rules on your blog before you answer the questions.

(2) You need to list one fact about yourself using each letter of your middle name. If you don’t have a middle name use your maiden name instead.

(3) When you are finished with your answers, you tag one person for each letter of your name.

I have a simple middle name, but am rather fond of it. It's the exact same as Blender Kimmy's - Ann-with-an-e. Do you know, I was in college before I ever heard of Anne of Green Gables? I love that series. Anne is such a romantic name, but only with the e. Otherwise it's so plain.

A - Fact? Can't it be fiction? Oh alright. I'll play nice. I. Am ALIVE. Yes, folks, I am. Some people doubt, but it's true! I really am! Ask ... oh, who can you ask? Ask my friend Lisa! She's seen me in person! And ask Brown Eyed Girl! I've spoken with her on the phone! Really! I AM alive!

N - I'm NUTRITIOUS. Yes. Yes I am. You should see my nutrition label, required and issued by the FDA! It's here somewhere ... know what? I think it was in my purse, darn it! Must have thrown it away. You'll just have to take my word for it - I'm nutritious.

N - Here's one I'll bet you didn't know. I'm NEW. Darn straight. I only LOOK old. It's a little trick I'm playing on my kids and will only tell them about when they're grown. I am always new. I'm not really 40. I'm a newborn babe. Shh! Don't tell.
(What's that you say? Did I take my meds today? Go away.)

E - Here's one I'll bet you already knew. C'mon - you know full well what's coming next. I am EASY. Yes. Just ask my husband. What? No! I don't mean like that! You people! Get your minds out of the gutter! I mean easy to assemble. Geez. And here I thought you'd know exactly what I meant. You know when the box says Some Assembly Required? Not like that. Or No Assembly Required? Not like that either. I'm Very Little Assembly Required - Even A Child Could Do It. That kind of easy. See? Now you know what I mean.

Shoot - now I have to tag four people, since my middle name has four letters. My daughter has been begging me to send traffic her way, so I tag Maybelline. I know her middle name already. :) I also tag my alive friend, Lisa. I know her middle name, too! And I know that she'll only have to tag three people! Wait, wait, wait ... that may be someone else's middle name that I know. Stink. I tag Lisa anyway. Lessee ... I'm going to tag someone new (to me) - the Straight Shooter. She kissed Fred and Bessie, so I at least need to know her middle name, fer cryin' out loud. And my middle name has four letters, right? Oh, I said that already? Shoot. I'm new, so I forget. Fourth is Mayberry Magpie. Her middle name has four letters. Wait, no, that's her first name. And to keep this in Oklahoma, I'm also tagging Brown Eyed Girl, at the Color of Home. I'm breaking the rules! Yeah, so?

See, this way all my tags are locals. :) And this post isn't as short as I thought it would be. Next time it'll be shorter. Really. :D

Until I write again ...

Why is it that everyone else gets short middle names and I had a 7-letter-word to work with? And a Z to boot.

Good job, and I'm so glad to hear that you're alive. ;)

Hi! You commented on my blog about my consideration of getting my nose pierced, so I thought I'd come over and say hi!
I've actually thought for a long time that a tiny diamond right in the crease of the nose is very lovely. I just like how it looks, especially if it's very little. And, good advice about sleeping on it! It's been several weeks since I started seriously considering...still not ready to jump.
Thanks for the comment!

It sounds like you took the wrong meds today ;) I needed the laugh today :)

Lucky you having a short name! Cute meme!!!

Melissa said...

Somehow I just had a feeling you were easy...to assemble that is.

I am glad I dodged this one! Mine has 8 letters! Although, if I was as creative as you are (new, easy...) it might have been fun!

I am glad you are alive and kickin' Flea! You are making my world a lot more spicy. I did a little joby like this not too long ago so I'll come up with somethin' similar to post soon! Thanks for including me. Tell the little bovines I don't kiss and tell...

I'll get right on this. And I feel compelled to say right now, my sort-of middle name has an "e" in it, and I AM easy. No shame. Just easy. Maybe that's why my hubby loves me.

P.S. I'm loving your new and improved commenter names! I crack up every day at your latest combination of adjectives.

Hey! My middle name is Ann WITHOUT an E. And it's not plain at all. Okay, maybe it is, but I think my awesome personality and charming good looks makes up for it. hahahahaha!!!!
