Oh, that it were that simple…:/.
Iris at Sting my Heart tagged me with a meme that sounds easier than it has proven to be. You don’t have to write anything new, just re-post four entries from your archives: one funny, one serious, one "ugly" (a rant) and one about me (or in your case, YOU). Thanks to Lindsay, its original brainchild. It’s a great way to breathe new life into some of your older posts, and I hope lots of you choose to snag this tag, then let me know so I can come and check out your answers (especially my "newer" readers).
For readers who know me a bit better, you KNOW choosing ONE of anything is virtually impossible for me :/.
Here goes nothin’ :):
This gave me a HUGE LAUGH OUT LOUD, I love Lucy AND whipped cream, people using the wrong words can make me laugh til I cry and I know that home remedies can get you into TROUBLE!
A painful but redemptive part of my past (a must-read for any mom struggling with her children) and thoughts on the importance of forgiveness.
Trying to shop with Rachel (not once, but twice) or explaining what I mean when I say Jesus is not my best friend
Apparently, I look younger than I am (if you’re a waiter wanting a BIG tip), I’m a sucker for lemonade stands, roller coasters and I have a hate-hate relationship, I like to read and blog, I’m an encourager, I choose to see the half-full glass, I’ve been "paid" to write about coffee because I talk about it too much already, even with the risk of scarlet-cheek-turning embarrassment, I really, truly want you to tell me if my pants are unzipped (among other things), I write poetry when I’m inspired to do so and I think little things matter.
Crapola!!! Ok….I’ll try to come back and cull this, I kind of got out of control, huh? I don’t even remember writing some of this. Heck, pick one link out of each group, if you pick more, you’ll get to know me better than you’d like!
I’m tagging Jenny (because I’d like her to pick her favorite old posts for me), Willowtree (because he’ll have a smart comment about me linking too many posts) and Mark (for the same reason as Jenny). Especially if you’ve only begun commenting here, I’d love for YOU to do this tag, too, and let me know! It’d be a treat for you to choose your favorite archives for us to read!
Robin as one of your new readers I enjoyed getting to know a little bit more about you. If I decide to give this a go I will let you know.
I haven’t had time to click on your links to read them yet, but what? you tagged me? Huh? I want to play dumb. Nobody has ever tagged me for a meme. I don’t even know what a meme is or how to pronounce it. This sounds like work. I’ll try my best, but no promises on how soon I’ll have it done.
That is a really cool idea! :O) Should be fun to read your posts. :O) I occasionally look at my earlier stuff. UGH talk about trying too hard.
Chris, please DO let me know if you play along–it’s an easy way for a new reader to get to know you :).
Mark, :), well, now, I’m your first tagger…hmmmmm. I’ve heard “meme” is supposed to be pronounced to rhyme with “seem”, but for some reason, I pronounce it to rhyme with “hem”. Your archives go back waaaaaaay too long for me to try to “catch up” with ya, so I had completely ulterior motives;).
MaryMert, Oooo, I hope you do this, too! I thought about tagging you, too, so since you’ve already posted a comment, consider yourself “it” :). I know what you mean about trying too hard…when I my “history” I recalled worrying about how it sounded more than I do now. The MOST HILARIOUS part of that, is NO ONE HAD THE LINK TO MY BLOG! I was completely anonymous! Insane…!
Well, I’ve followed almost all of your links and I know all about you now. My archives are deceiving because those really old ones, well they’re boring and nothing like what I write now. It will take at least a couple days to dig through my archives and see what I want to use for this. I thought meme rhymed with seem, but there’s always the selfish possiblity of Me Me! (btw, the link to you look younger than you are is broken)
I read your Jesus post – very insightful. WOW. I wish everyone would read it.
Okay – I won’t be doing this. I feel it would be too taxing. (can you tell I”m tired today?)
Hey sweetie – I paid homage to you today;)
I prounounce it ME ME
because thats what a meme is usually all about.
(oh ME2 gets into the act… but then it would have to be me2me2)
(I’ve read most of these… and commented on them… remember that ??? ha ha)
I was wrong. In the morning my Blast From the Past meme will be posted.
Also, I’ve always pronounced it Me Me.
You know…because it’s all about Me Me.
I’m notoriously slow on Meme’s. Give me a week or two.
This was great!!! You’ve written some great stuff, Robin. I’ve enjoyed all of it 😉
This was so much fun, I did it, too.
Mark, GLAD you got this done, I feel like Stephanie as I break into song…”Getting to know you, getting to know ALL about you…” :).
Karmyn, uh, oh…..you DO sound tired (but didn’t you get a pick-up with your “Blogger I won’t ever stop reading” nomination? This took me longer than I planned, though…then again, I did break the rules…:/.
Jenny, I’ve been sitting on it for a week or so myself. I’m too lazy to “catch up” with you via your archives, there’s just too much to read! You’re saving me some time!
Susan, I’m glad you CHOSE to do this :). As you know, I got to comment before you took it down for the day ;).
Finally finished. Check out tomorrows post for my meme!
