AUTHOR: Marty, a.k.a. canape TITLE: Seven and five memes DATE: 1/02/2008 09:19:00 AM ----- BODY:
I'm not a resolution maker. However, having finally caught up on my blog reading even if I had to skim some, I would like to stay more up to date with things and the people I care about in this community.

That includes answering memes and awards in a timely fashion. I've been a rude blogger lately, and that is going to change.

I don't promise though, that I won't cheat and do two memes in one post. Heh.

Emily, the fantabulous editor of Props and Pans and author of Fenicle, tagged me for a seven random facts meme. I've been tagged for this before, but we know what happened there. I was just rude. Sorry about that.

1. I have expensive tastes and a tight wallet. The two contradict each other all the time. Consequently, I would rather have one pair of expensive jeans that fit really well than 5 pairs of cheapo's that don't. On the other hand, nothing gets me more stoked than a good bargain.

2. I have never liked the way I look more than I do now while I'm pregnant.

3. Dogs like me.

4. Cameras don't.

5. I would rather have a bare wall than hang something on it that wasn't made by an artist. Preferably one I have met.

6. There's an unworn wedding dress hanging in my guest bedroom.

7. I love whole milk.

I'm tagging, well, I think most everyone I know has been tagged for this, but I can't remember. I'll tag, and if you've done it, don't feel like you have to repeat it. Kimmie, because she needs a distraction. Amy, because she doesn't need a distraction, but I figure she has learned a lot about herself lately. How about another fellow preggo at The Vessel? It's not seven, but it's the best I can do right now. If you ladies care to play along, just link back to here, list your 7 random things, and then tag seven additional bloggers. Let them know by leaving them a comment. Or cheat and just tag three.

The next meme is from Imstell. Here are the rules:

Link to the person that tagged you and post the rules on your blog.
Tag a minimum of 5, maximum of 10 random people at the end of your post and include links to their blogs.

Let each person know that they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

The tagees have a choice of which they want to do.


I'm choosing the 5 things I never pictured being in my future when I was 25 years old.

1. Being pregnant.
2. Being a part-time stay at home mom.
3. Being married to a man who lights my fire.
4. Never pictured my daddy as someone who would need such care so early in his life.
5. Wouldn't have thought the recording and performing I do would be in the new age genre rather than the rock genre.

For this, I tag Whymommy, Girl, Bubblewench, the most awesome Hat Maker ever, and Tara.

Amen. Thus endeth the memes.

----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Anonymous Paige Jennifer DATE:Wednesday, January 2, 2008 at 2:04:00 PM EST Dogs love me too! But cats? Yeah, we have a mutual hate (insert growl here). ----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Anonymous FENICLE DATE:Wednesday, January 2, 2008 at 8:52:00 PM EST Thanks for doing the meme. I'm awful at getting them done as well.

I'm with you on the jeans. One expensive pair is worth a million ones that don't fit good! ----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Anonymous moosh in indy. DATE:Wednesday, January 2, 2008 at 9:04:00 PM EST I'll bet your are a fine piece of pregnant hotness.
I however, adore cats and cats love me.
Dogs, not really. No thank you. ----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Anonymous Jennie DATE:Thursday, January 3, 2008 at 7:48:00 AM EST I'm so with you on #1, my friend. It's a constant balancing act ----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Anonymous Bubblewench DATE:Thursday, January 3, 2008 at 1:24:00 PM EST Interesting... very interesting...

I'll get to it... eventually!

Isn't there a saying about your #1 from Emily - "Champagne tastes on a beer budget." That sort of explains the PBR... ----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Anonymous Bubblewench DATE:Tuesday, January 8, 2008 at 7:36:00 AM EST I'm doing this today.. working on it now. (7:30am Tuesday) ----- --------
