Memes

Well, we're behind on several Memes that we were tagged to do. So we're doing them all today. And we're not tagging anybody because most efurrybody has already been tagged.

Bliss and Vinegar tagged us back in July for 8 Random Facts about us. We're gonna let Maw answer this Meme since 8 times 10 would be 80 Random Facts and she would get writer's cramp doing all that dictation for us.

1. We have to post these rules before we give you the facts.
2. Players start with eight random facts/habits about themselves.
3. People who are tagged need to write on their own blog about their eight things and post these rules.
4. At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names.
Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.
***************************************
The most random facts about Maw…
1. Maw was in the US Air Force for 4 years many, many eons ago.
2. Maw was raised in Indianapolis, spent 10 years in Omaha, and then moved to Dallas.
3. This is Maw's favorite web site: Tom Grisak Estate Homes She loves to go here to drool.
4. Maw loves Frappacinos from the bottle. She had to limit herself to 2 per day because she had a very big weight gain when she drank 4 per day.
5. Maw and her cousin used to dream about having an animal sanctuary when they were little girls. They said they would take in every stray animal they could find.
6. Maw and Paw were married on the island of Kauai in Hawaii. She planned the whole thing over the internet and they had an "untraditional" ceremony on a private estate and didn't invite anyone. The guitarist and the photographer were witnesses.
7. Maw loves the mountains and would love to retire in the middle of nowhere with mountains all around.
8. Maw would be perfectly happy to be a hermit as long as she had internet access.


And Flynn from Eric and Flynn tagged Obi for a Meme back in July also.

What were you doing 10 years ago? I was living my life as a squirrel attempting to reach my highest spiritual potential, not realizing that I would need to reincarnate many times over to learn life's lessons.

What were you doing a year ago? Sleeping outside in my enclosure in the August heat.

What are your five favorite snacks? Temptayshuns!, food, nip, TUNA, Temptayshuns!

Five songs you know all the words to: I only know one song. It's the one Maw sings to me all the time. "Obi dobi do, we love you, Obi dobi do, we love you, Obi dobi do, we love you, Obi dobi do, we love you.

Five things you would do if you had a million dollars: I would buy a ginormous house with stairs so that we could each have a room and we could play thundering herds of elephants up and down the stairs and we could each hide in our own rooms. Behind the house would be a ginormous shelter for unwanted poodins. And I would educate stoopid beans to get their cats and dogs fixed.

Five bad habits: Whapping other poodins on the head when they look at me. Jumping on Maw's lap when another poodin is already there. Sticking my head in the food bowl when another poodin is already eating. Whapping Annie on the head when she jumps on the sink. Taking over the Kitty Teaser game when it's G.T.'s turn to play.

Five things I'll nefur wear again: e-collar, e-collar, e-collar, e-collar, e-collar

Five favorite toys: Nip, Whirly-bird, Kitty Teaser, laser pointer, cat trees


Then we were tagged by Storm, The Furry Fighter with the Middle Name Meme. We're only going to do one of us. We'll do Dorf. His name is Dorfington Fish Stanley. Stanley is not our last name, so we don't know why he uses that, but, whatever.

Here are the rules:
1. Post the rules before you give the facts.
2. List one fact that is somehow relevant to you and your life for each letter of your middle name. If you don’t have a middle name, use the middle name you would have liked to have had.
3. When you are tagged you need to write your post using your middle name and facts about it.
4. At the end of your post, choose one cat to tag for each letter of your middle name. Be sure to let each cat know she/he has been tagged. (It's okay if you don't do this... tag who you want to tag!)

F: Fangs no more.
I: Irresistably cute. 'Nuf said.
S: Sleep is underrated. Naps all around! Good night.
H: Happy to be done with the vet dentist.

I think Fish is a very good middle name.

Candace said...

Rosie (and friends) said...

Oooooh, yes, I could definitely be a hermit as long as I could have internet.

I took a look at some of those houses. They are really really nice houses, I think. My only complaint is that some of them don't have any trees in the yard. Sticks, yes, but no trees. The rest of the houses looked really good!

Caesar and Princess said...

aaaaah, we have a bazillion meme's to do as well.. not sure if we will ever catch up.

This was great reading all of these at once... not you should give us a test "all things ten kitties"

Purrrs and happy week-end

Karen Jo said...

I enjoyed reading your memes. I think Dorf would join right in with Obi about never wearing an e-collar again.

Zippy, Sadie and Speedy said...

*sigh* We'z trying to catch up too! We'z glad Dorf is done wif da dentist. Those questions are some of the same ones dat mom and dad ask each other. It all started wif "why do we call it a driveway when we park on it and a parkway when we drive on it?" We don't care we just want mom to spend more time doing what we want.

Dorfington Fish Stanley?!?
It's a lovely name!
What a great post - maybe we'll be neighbors in Colorado someday!

Tyler said...

Wow, I learned a lot about Maw, Obi and Dorfie. I think Fish is a very respectable middle name.

Lux said...

Fish is a *cool name! Those were lots of memes at one time, which reminds me I think I'm supposed to be doing one. I forget. Yeah.

Hawaii, huh? Mom says that sounds like a perfect wedding.

Christine and FAZ said...

This is a lot of work for one day - I am impressed. I especially like the bit about Maw being married in Hawaii - how romantic. FAZ

Eric and Flynn said...
