MY LIFE: A MEME-OIR

I have been tagged by the ever impressive, animal kingdom queen and just all around enjoyable Claire - who is a big Wildcat fan, by the way. I know, a meme. I hate memes, but this has a different slant. It doesn't sound so, well, self important. Unless of course that's what you'd like to convey, then it could be. So have fun. Here are the rules. If you don't like those, I have others:

1. Write your own six word memoir.
2. Post it on your blog and include a visual illustration if you’d like.
3. Link to the person who tagged you in your post.
4. Tag five more blogs with links.
5. And don’t forget to leave a comment on the tagged blogs with an invitation to play!

Talk about an economy of words. So let's see - my life/blog/manifesto in six words?

Repeat after me:

Sometimes a wall is a door.











Now I have been known to drop the ball on a meme or ten, but nonetheless I shall lovingly tag the following who have every right to ignore me:

Weirsdo (or Hobbes) of Stuffed Animal Tales because if anyone has a way with words, it is Weirsdo (and Hobbes).

Icy (or Tom...or both) of My Dogs Daze. So what? She's a dog, but she talks and that's good enough for me.
Pansi of The New Adventures of Pansi and Friends For those who don't know Pansi, I'm not quite sure where to begin. Sometimes it's best just to jump right in. In any event, Pansi is still frolicking about doing her NG4J in a new place, so maybe she'll sum up her life for us. I don't think Pansi actually needs more than six words.
Actonbell of A Tempest in a Teacup - a unique voice if ever there was one. I love to read about Actonbell's life, even when she says it's boring. Her writing is superb.
Tali of Muffin-land because she's upset with me for writing stories referencing her which she could have used for her own blog (if she actually had time to blog). Actually, I get clearance for any nugget I share and tell her that they are solely from my viewpoint. How many words could a ten year old need after all? You might be surprised.

All of this linking has me exhausted. Good night!

We tried. We really liked yours!

agree, yours is wonderful!

A thousand thank yous for the flattering invitation. This will take some thought, but I'll think about it today and give it a whirl:)

She simply said 'I'm here meming.'

I like it. In our house that was actually true. When we first bought it we knocked out the wall to an adjoining room and put a arched doorway in instead to give us a needed dining room.

I would never be able to summarize anything into 6 words. This comment is a good example of that. ;-)

G said...

T&I - thanks. I love yours!

Actonbell, thanks - it's fun. I'll look forward to seeing yous.

Doug, now why didn't I just have you do my meme?! I didn't tag you because you have too many words :)

Jeff, you slay me! See, my words ring true, quite literally in your case. :()

I am perched on the edge.

G said...

Sit tight, sister. And don't steal any candy from children like some of your family in Japan ;)

G said...

Hahaha, Terry - it's late and I didn't count, but that's a perfect six words for you. Love it.

Good night.

I love that photo.

G said...

It's a great photo isn't it? I am quite sorry that I don't know where I picked it up along the way and thus am basically thieving and not giving proper credit.

On the upside, somebody's work lives on.

Claire said...

Well done, G!
'Meme-oir' LOL

G said...

Thanks Claire for getting me off my lazy meme butt!
