Ah...to be tagged...I feel like a celebrity. Well, maybe not the right kind...but before we get to that, let's start with big news: my first gift from a fellow blogger!! I got a message from the beautiful Vicki that I had a gift coming, and then I was horrified when I saw what the USPS had done in transit:Maybe they were suspicious of the contents? Thankfully, Vicki packaged the gift with the utmost of care, and even her personalized card made it safely. Isn't this a gorgeous photo? I think she should sell these cards commercially:And LOOK!! Hollyhocks! And if you read the package, it says they do well in hot sun...so I have the PERFECT place for them! I am grateful, dear Vicki - and thanks again for popping my blogger-gift cherry!Now, today's first tag is from the lovely Desert Songbird, whose blogger gift is SITTING ON MY DESK, waiting for the appropriate bubble wrap and box. (I think I've got the box, but this thing has to be cushioned. I promise, dear, it's coming!) As some of you know, I don't follow rules. I just can't. It's part of my thing. But there were TWO on her list I could comply with:
"Players, you must list one fact that is somehow relevant to your life for each letter of their middle name. If you don’t have a middle name, use the middle name you would have liked to have had.
When you are tagged you need to write your own blog post containing your own middle name game facts."
Cool, b/c I totally love my middle name: Corinne. At all three of my graduations, NONE of the announcers got the pronunciation right. It is "CORE-inn." The Offspring shares this middle name, and still has to ask me how to spell it.
C - Crazy - but in a good way. My perspective on life makes me think "outside the box" and say things that most people wouldn't dare utter. It's about keeping it real - and is there anyone who can say that life isn't just plain crazy?
O - Orator. I can speak in front of large crowds and barely get a butterfly. I have no fear of public speaking and revel in "working a room" and captivating an audience.
R - Rhythm, and lots of it - without music, I'm not sure my life would be worth living.
I - Interested. In all aspects of life, people, places - I want to constantly learn all that I can, b/c I believe if I ever stop learning, I'll start dying.
N - News-addicted. Current events addict. I must know everything that is going on in the world, from politics to sports, entertainment to weather. I pride myself on knowing the latest!
N - Naughty. I have a sick sense of humor, and luckily, so does my husband.
E - Energetic. Always doing and going and keeping my plate full. I wouldn't be happier, any other way.
The next tag was from the sweet JennieBoo. I'm sure her innocent experiment in google-isms never turned up anything like mine did. We were to type our names into the Google images search, and see what craziness popped up. I remember when I got married, that I LOVED my new name! I even joked to my husband that it sounded like that of a porn star. Well, guess what? Ta-da! Meet Tiffany Lane, aka, Tiffany Rose:However, I think my status will be safe, as I read this in her bio:
"Porn Star Tiffany Lane's meteoric rise to sexvid fame was cut tragically short when she was killed in a 1988 car wreck. Until then, Tiffany Lane was one of the hottest young starlets in the biz, turning her penchant for lust into a hard-charging carnal career. Tiffany Lane was known throughout the industry as one of the wildest women on the scene, and there was nothing that Tiffany Lane wouldn't try at least once. The large tattoo that covered her left shoulder attested to Tiffany Lane's 'anything-goes' attitude."
I didn't dare venture into the photos far enough to see the tattoo...one can only wonder.
Oh, but it gets better! Look at this lovely lass:Guess what she is? A PAGAN. Guess I'm covering all bases here. Here is her bio:
"I'm a 30yr old BBW, native South Floridian who moved to Austin in June with my LTR Isaac, I'm just looking for like minded souls to connect with who won't judge me/us. BOTH of us are also Polyamorous, Bisexual & Pagan/non religous but spirit oriented. Anyone know of good groups/people/functions that support folks like us?"
Someone help the Neophyte - what is an LTR? And BBW, does that stand for Bisexual Black Woman? I had to look up "polyamorous." Let me assure you, it is NOT a dinosaur.
But the best result was that THIS photo pulled up! My daughter and I created this beast, and it was later posted at this famous pumpkin site!I can only imagine what my google hits will be after this post.
