Memes and Awards
Frannie Farmer tagged me to post 7 random facts about me. You would think this is easy as my entire life seems random, but it’s not as simple as it sounds. So I’m going to have to give this some thought.
Pokey Puppy bestowed a Rockin’ Blogger award on me, too.
Thank you, Pokey! I’m honored you think so! It’s hard to pick just five bloggers to pass this on to, but I’ll let you know who I chose later.
And finally, Anne tagged me for “8 Things About Me According To (in my case) Todd”. I have to admit this meme gives me pause. I’d thought about not telling him and making up my own very flattering list. He doesn’t read my blog all the time and I thought maybe, just maybe, he’d miss the post all together. But with the way my luck runs… well, most of you have seen how things have been going for me.
So it was with significant trepidation that I told him about this meme. You should have seen the unholy gleam in his eye. Scary! So I decided he needed ground rules:
1. My mother and aunt and others who think of me as “Little Jenni” read this blog. No “naughty” stories.
2. He’s gained the cyber-reputation as being a great guy. And he is. But I would hate for him to ruin others’ perception of him if he were to say something less than nice about me. Not that there is anything less than nice to say about me, but you know how it is for people who have lived together for a while.
3. I have a cyber-image to maintain. I would be most displeased if he were to cast a pall over it, regardless of how bogus said image is.
4. I must appear charming, witty and sweet; the faultless wife and mother, perfect in every way without appearing too Stepfordish.
5. I reserve the right to edit his list if I deem the list to violate any of the above-mentioned rules.
He asked if he could have a little while to think about this list and I told him that would be fine.
“Is it okay if I work on the list while I’m on my business trip next week?”
I told him sure. And do you know what my great guy of a husband said?
“Good because I think nicer things about you when I’m somewhere else.”
What can I say? It sounds like a snarky comment I would make.
I’m confused about #4. You must appear to be all those things? I thought you WERE all those things!Congratulations on being a rocking blogger! I already knew you were!!
LOL, it is good to set ground rules sometimes. 😉
Nice set of ground rules :)”Good because I think nicer things about you when I’m somewhere else.” I’m positive my husband would say the exact same thing about me–LOL.
I have a cyber-image to maintain. I would be most displeased if he were to cast a pall over it, regardless of how bogus said image is. 4. I must appear charming, witty and sweet; the faultless wife and mother, perfect in every way without appearing too Stepfordish.Priceless!!! Can’t wait to see what he comes up with. LOL.
Wow, he is great with the comebacks! ‘Course with a rule list like that… :oD
Ha! absence makes the heart grow fonder, and all that…Can’t wait to see the list!
LOL! He’s got nerve. Sounds like something my hubby would say. 😉 I once asked my DH to tell me something he thought was strange about me. I was surprised how quick and effortless they came to him. I had to finally stop him and say “enough!”I think your rules are perfectly acceptable. 😉 Gotta keep the image. LOL!
I can not wait to read his list!
Too too funny Jen. Can’t wait to see what he says!
Looking forward to both lists LOL 🙂
Congratulations friend. You do Rock!!I laughed out loud when I read “Good because I think nicer things about you when I’m somewhere else.” You both are a hoot.
OMG.. too too funny… Its great that you can joke like that.. and also something every husband on earth would probably say!!
Ohh how funny. You know he will say all good things. He might buy the pants in the family, but we know who looks best in them. He has to be kind. Looking forward to the lists. By the way I too think you Rock!
I’m still laughing. That’s priceless.
Bob practically kicked me out of the chair in order to write up my list. He knew all kinds of weird things about me right off the top of his head, LOL! And he also asked if there were any restrictions. What’s up with those guys? They’re such… guys!
Oooh, that’ll be a fun list!
That sounds just like something my husband would say!
I think you all are looking forward to Todd’s list a little too much.He keeps telling me things he’s going to write and I tell him, “No. That would be in violation of rule #1,” or whichever. Yeah. Most of them directly go against rule #1.
Sounds like the perfect marriage to me. Or…maybe that’s just what I’m used to, too. 🙂
LOL!!! Your husband is too funny.
Ok Everyone….I have been putting some serious thought behind this endeavor. It might be a little long; it definately will not have EVERYTHING that I really want in it due to the blasted RULES; it might be a little long. I also have to find someway to keep Jen from editing it to death before posting it….I used to be pretty persuasive if I had the right amount of Peanut M&M’s, Coke and the promise of a little something “extra” later…but that does not seem to work anymore….Stay tuned….I am hoping for late next week.Todd (aka – DH)
I’m pretty sure when I stop laughing I might be scared. Seriously!
