being a relative newcomer to blogging and all of its traditions and conventions, i wondered for quite some time what was this "meme" stuff i kept happening upon. i thought it was a foreign word, possibly french. in my head i pronounced it "mem," and i toyed with various definitions. did it have to do with memory? it was clearly something deeply personal.
it took a long time to figure out just how personal. it's not french at all! it means Me! Me! and it gives a blogger a chance to write about himself, as if that wasn't what blogs were all about anyway.
so i have been tagged by two of my favorite bloggers, flowerpot and merry, to do a Me! Me! (i am posting a picture of Me! in france, just to illustrate my original faulty premise.)
this meme asks us to pick a personality trait for each letter of our name. i have been trying for several days to figure out how to make this interesting, since i'm not sure you want to plow through a long list of attributes that i think i possess, understanding that i'm not about to tell you the bad ones.
some meemers (i have coined that phrase myself, i think, and let's see if it catches on) have posted little pictures next to their traits, and others have used their middle names. i thought of doing the meme for my dogs, since this is a dog blog, but then you'd have to wade through two memes. or three, if we include toby.
in the end, the middle name seemed the way to go, since mine is short. here goes:
see? short. to the point. no bad traits. now go along and enjoy your saturday morning, before i make you look at another picture of me! me! in paris.
***SATURDAY EVENING UPDATE***
