Tagged! Again....

So, I often read other people's blogs and see the tags and think, "That was fun to read, but I don't think I will do it." But I always end up doing it! I am such a push over! So, here's another one...

Here's how it goes:

You must list one fact about yourself for each letter of your middle name. Each fact must begin with that letter. If you don’t have a middle name, just use your maiden name. After you’ve been tagged, you need to update your blog with your middle name and answers.

Middle name: Michelle (here it goes)

M: Music Lover

I would love to say that I love all music, but that is not true. There is a lot of music that I really do not like. But when I find an artist I like, I tend to stick to them. I love to see bands live, and love it even more when I know the lyrics to the songs they are singing. I love to get a new CD and listen to it till I know all the lyrics to all the songs. Then I like to listen again for phrases that stick out at me. My Fall Out Boy CD is number one for that right now.

I: Intelligent


I don't want this one to sound like I am boasting or anything, really. I do think of my self as being relatively intelligent. I can hold my own in most conversations. I know what a lot of words mean. My spelling isn't great, but I can usually figure it out. I like learning about the world and how things work. I understand most pop culture references, even some that were before my time. It may not sound like much, but it makes me feel good about myself.

C: Cautious
I over think a lot of things because I don't want to make a wrong decision. Some things I go over and over in my head to see if there was another way to go. Some times I do all the figuring in my head before I say anything out loud, and sometimes I say everything out loud in hopes of getting another opinion. Now, I know that some of you are thinking that I am anything but cautious, and in some respects, that is true. I love to do crazy things, and say crazy things, but in the long run, I am a very rational person.

H: Helpful

Sounds like a nursery answer. "How can we help our family?" "Doing the dishes!", "Cleaning our rooms", "Not hitting our brothers even though they totally deserve it!". Right? But I love to be helpful. I love to know that something I have done has made some ones life easier. I am not a door mat though. I will not just let you tell me what I have to do. And I will not volunteer if I do not think I have the time and energy to do it. "When we're helping we're happy!"

E: Empowered

I am not actually sure what makes me empowered, but I like the ways it sounds, and in the definition it sounds like I should have a super power of some kind, and I like the way that sounds.

L: Little

I am a small person. Two people at work today commented that I am short. One even asked me my height. In high school I thought I was 5' 4" but when I started going to the doctor more after I got married, I found that I am actually 5' 3". I am shrinking at 23. Yay. Not that it is a bad thing really. If I was much taller, I would be eye to eye with Nik, and I like that he is taller. I always liked that I was the favorite dance partner when we were learning swing, though that did result in lots of bruises. It was still tons of fun!

L: Lollipops


I hate lollipops.
There are maybe two kinds of suckers in the whole world that I like. The idea of pure sugar that tastes like cherry cough syrup, on a steeek, does not appeal to me. I like Dum-Dums (no comments from the peanut gallery) and I really only like, maybe 3 flavors, and only for about half the sucker. Oh well.


E: Extra


As in extra E, cause I did this one already. I did the extra L, but you can see what happened there. I was obviously not made to have such a long middle name. It should have been Eve or something. But even then there is a extra E. I am doomed to the extra E. At least my first name just has one. Oh! And my last name only has one. But that means I have 4 E's in my name. I am totally hoarding all the E's. Maybe I will do it on purpose now. Name all my kids E names, with double E's in them. That way there will be no E's for anyone else. Hahahahaha!!!


Oops.


Ok, someone else's turn now.


(Oh, and just so you all know, I originally miss spelled Intelligent up there.)

You are such a crackup, Lena! I loved reading your meme! I LOVE the cartoon blips, btw....:)

I totally agree about how helpful you are! WHO was the person who hunted down all my "Taco" songs, burned them to CD, and brought it cleeear to st.george? YOU! (And Nik)...:) You are AWESOME!

LOL on the "cough syrup on a STEEK" comment- I couldn't stop laughing at that one.

CUTE!! I love when you do your tags!

You are so hilarious. Loved reading this. I am a sucker for these things too. I will probably save this one for a later date.

You are a very helpful person. I like that one. Especially when you hold the babe while I get stuff done. You are also very thoughtful, that means you think of others often. But you don't have a T in your middle name.

Nik said...

Ha now I know why you kept messaging me and asking for words that describe you!!

Kathy said...

What a cute "little" kid you are! I especially liked the part about not hitting your younger brothers. (Notice I didn't say LITTLE brothers?)
The little guys were so funny. So what's your power?

Don't you just love Pon and Zi? i think they are so cute!

That was fun to read all those descriptions of yourself. I love that I can imagine you explaining them in person.
Oh...thanks for all the Dan Brown referrals. I have actually read all 4 of his books. I do like his books a lot. There is always intense drama and a scandalous politician or someone similar with his books.
