A Meme-ing We Will Go, Part Two

I have been tagged by Just Jules

The rules are simple; I need to tell 10 things about myself that are true. Since most of you don't know me, you'll have to trust me on this, they will be true!

1. I'm 5' 2" tall, which is often inconvenient.

2. I don't eat anything that squishes; i.e. mushrooms, mussels, oysters, etc.

3. I have developed an undercurrent of gnawing anxiety, something I never experienced before the past couple of years.

4. Although I have a 35 year old child, I will probably never be a grandmother.

5. It doesn't bother me that I will probably never be a grandmother.

6. Both of my parents are still living.

7. I am impatient with willful ignorance, making the current intellectual climate I find myself in a real test of my endurance.

8. I have been married twice. The second has stuck for 28 years.

9. I was not one of the popular kids in my youth.

10. I'm not one of the popular adults in my older age, proving I am consistent.

I tag anyone who reads this and wants to participate.


  1. Anxiety, eh? I couldn't agree more with you on that one. I have no clue if it is the current economic crisis or just in general the feeling of not knowing where to turn. It is totally unsettling and does give way to anxiety. Great meme and always good to get to know the person behind the scenes so to speak!

  2. I have played. Loved your answers.
    9 & 10 pertain to me as well. I am over it. I never wanted to be popular in the first place. What I wanted to be was interesting. ☺

  3. Anxious is no way to live a life, is it?

    Well Ganeida, you accomplished your goal, you are interesting. : )

  4. Oh, how I laughed at your answers!
    My answers are the same as yours for numbers 6-10.
    I am NOT the same for numbers 1-5.

  5. Your not old, that's why # 1 - 5 don't apply. Really, I was 5'10" when I was a young lass. REALLY!

  6. Oh my. We do have a lot in common. However, you love horses, I love chickens. I can live with that.


I really appreciate the concept and sentiment behind awards, but I cannot participate in them anymore. I have too may and I have not got the time to devote to participating properly. To all who have honored me, I am grateful but I don't have seven more things to tell anyone about myself! And I'm a terrible passer-oner.
