Suffice it to say, I am not in much of a state at the moment to put much though into a post as we continue to deal with the passing of TheWife’s Step Father.Â So, since I owe Chicka a Meme anyway, and I fear what will happen if I stall on it any longer, it seemed a good day for such an endevour.
Here are the rules. Write a post using each letter of your middle name, describing something relevant to your life. Tag the same amount of people as you have letters in your name.
E – Emotional – If my middle name was Peter I would say passionate, but I will settle for emotional.Â I am rarely ambivalent about things I care about.Â I almost always build emotional ties to people, or causes that are quite strong.
D – Determined – My father usually called it “Stunad” (pronounced stew-nad, I like most others have no idea how it is spelled) or “think headed” but I prefer determined.Â When I set my sights on something, my determination lets little (including logic) get in my way of drive to attain it.
W – Water – I love the ocean.Â I could never live some place that did not offer easy access to the ocean.Â One of the things I love about New Jersey is how close you are, almost regardless of where in the State you live, you are never more than about an hour away from “the shore”
A – Animated – I’ll blame it on Italian heritage, but if you taped my arms to my sides, I would probably lose the ability to speak.
R – Recycle – my father was always one to recycle (or actually reuse) as much of whatever he had, to a point where it was annoying, because he never threw anything away.Â I am not that bad, but in my drive to keep this planet in good shape for future generations, I am a big proponent to recycle as much as possible so the planet doesn’t become one big landfill.
D – Disorganized – If there is a method to my madness, nobody (including me) has figured it out yet.Â Probably a by-product of being ADD, “stacks” is the closest I often reach in terms of organization.Â (except on my computer where I am so organized, TheWife who borders on organizational Obsessiveness goes “damn, now that is organized.”)
I am not going to tag anybody specifically for this since so many hide behind pseudonyms, plus I have not had much luck enticing people into doing them.Â But if you are inclinded to play along, please by all means do so, and just comment here so I can read along.
