All about me and mememememememes

First things first.

I'd like to thank the Academy -- and one of my favorite bloggers -- for special recognition earlier this week.

It's from Holly of June Cleaver Nirvana. Do you know Holly? If you don't, you should. She cracks my shit up on a daily basis. Her animated life is one of the funniest things on the 'net -- even if I hardly ever appear on her updating blogroll!!


My very dear friend Holly likes to reward her commenters and picks a Peep of the Week. So if you go here, you will find ME receiving this:

because I'm such a funny funny girl!!

Miss Anne Derstood tagged me for a meme. And because I'm always at such a loss for words (snort), I thought I'd play along this time!

Here are the rules:

1. Link to the person who tagged you.
2. Post the rules on your blog.
3. Write six random things about yourself.
4. Tag six random people at the end of your post by linking to their blogs.
5. Let each person know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their website.
6. Let your tagger know when your entry is up.

I've kinda done some version of this before, so I think I will switch this out a little. So, for your amusement, six random things about me -- and blogging!

1. I'm addicted to three things: word games on Facebook, honey lattes (they're going to go away soon -- I just KNOW it!) and blogging (duh).

2. Although I did not sign up for Blog 365, I will admit that I actually have posted every. single. day. -- since Jan. 2. (Now, having said that? I will probably bust my streak ...)

3. I sometimes (um, often) write posts DAYS ahead of posting them. At this moment, Sunday, Monday and Tuesday are planned.

4. I forget more good blog fodder than I have written. I have mentioned before that I should carry around a paper and pen, but that would tip my hand to my kids (who have no clue about all this). I DID write down some of the graduation nonsense, but there was a great one that is simply GONE from my swiss cheese brain (everything goes out the holes).

5. I am a comment whore. I love love LOVE when you talk to me. I love it even more when I can locate your email address and can therefore respond directly to you. (LceeL? Karen of Sillymonkeez? There are others, but see No. 4 for the swiss-cheese-brain thing.)

6. Sometimes I fret that I will have nothing to write about. But this is my 288th post. I don't seem to have run out yet.

As for tagging others? If you haven't done this one, consider yourself tagged. If you HAVE done this one and want to do it again, consider yourself tagged.

And to steal from my friend Janet, if your name is Janet, consider yourself tagged!

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

And speaking of Janet and being tagged, she tagged me -- as a fellow Janet.

The rules:

1. Pick up the nearest book.

2. Open to page 123

3. Find the fifth sentence.

4. Post the next three sentences.

5. Tag five people, and acknowledge who tagged you.

OK, this is kinda weird. But it IS the nearest book:

206 Shoulder 19-27 Roast, grill, broil, pan-fry.

207 Shoulder, square-cut 13-19 Roast, grill, broil, braise, pan-fry, roast, braise

208 Shoulder, squre-cut, boneless, tied 6-8 Roast, braise


The book? "The Professional Chef," seventh edition. Page 123 includes cuts of lamb and mutton:

Item number, product name, weight range (in pounds) and suggested cooking methods.

Why is the nearest? Because I am blogging this from work (for shame, Janet! For shame! I guess that should qualify as the seventh random fact -- I do blog at work ... shhhhhhhhhhhh!) and someone just gave me this gorgeous illustrated book to take home to Z-man.

Well? It DID say the nearest book!

I'm again tagging anyone who hasn't done this one or who wants to do it again.

It's always a good choice for when you have nothing else to say.

Which is clearly not me.

Shutting up now ...

My blog is blocked at work as pron!

I have had a few drinks and that nearest book thing didn't register for a minute or two, I had to go and reread it to realise!

HRH said...

Yeah! You are a very funny girl. Thanks for the kind words. I have something worked out for you but you have to wait until Monday's potluck to see it...

Oh, and can you send me a few of those written ahead posts because I always TRY and occasionally DO write ahead, but I never seem to GET ahead.

Alison said...

congrats on your award!! it is well deserved!!

Mr Lady said...

How could I not comment NOW? ;)

Janet said...

Cool - I'll do whichever it was I got tagged for that I didn't already do (I think I got tagged for all of them, given my name, but I tagged JJ for the 123 one and she tagged you. I think. Where the heck was I? OK.)

Janet said...

I love those honey lattes, too :-)

Oh and I'll consider myself tagged for the 123 meme cause I just got an awesome book for my birthday for a coworker ... it's called The Saucier's Apprentice :-)
