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!!!


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 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!!

Stephanie said...

oh lena, so empowered. i especially liked all the little illustrations. for some reason i found those little big-eyed creature guys very funny.

oh and i originally spelled illustrations "illustartions" so i hear you on the spelling

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?

Annabelle said...

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

Spencer said...

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.
