The Middle Meme

Some of you hate memes... some of you don't. Generally they don't bother me, and they are usually fun, especially because I usually get to talk about one of my favorite subjects: Me.

So... this meme is about middle names. Please see the rules below.

Here are the meme rules. I didn't write the rules, someone else did... so don't shoot the messenger, OK? (besides, he might shoot back)

1. You have to post these rules before you give the facts.

2. Players, you must list one fact that is somehow relevant to your life for each letter of their middle name. If you don’t have a middle name, use the middle name you would have liked to have had.

3. When you are tagged you need to write your own blog post containing your own middle name game facts.

4. At the end of your blog post, you need to choose one person for each letter of your middle name to tag. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.

Are you ready?

My middle name is Vincent, which is from the Latin (or something like that), for Conqueror. You know... my name is so me, it isn't even close to being funny.

Here we go:

V - Vacation. Which is where I am now. We have had some lovely days on the Georgia beach. Swimming, seeing some old friends, eating good coastal Georgia cuisine. Ahhh!

I - Interesting. At least, I think I am interesting. Hey! Wake up!

N - Nice. Sure, it might be trite, but it's true.

C - Cook. I can really bang them pots and pans. It's why Mrs. GF married me.

E - Evangelical. I proclaim the saving gospel of Christ.

N - Non-Judgemental. Hey, do your own thing, and don't hurt anyone else while you do it.

T - Tactical. Adjective: Of or relating to combat tactics.

Now, I get to tag seven people. I choose:

The First Seven People That Read This. Honor system, people!

GF, now with deeper tan lines

I may be the first commenter, but I just know I'm the number 8 reader of this post. I swear!!!

"Now with deeper tan lines" I love it.

Glad vacation is fun.

Or is it commentor?


Heather said...

Oh, heck. I'll try it.

I'll let you go this time, Mamma.

Good for you, Heather.

Hehe, I guess that puts me in a tagged slot. But I can dodge this as I don't have a middle name... though I did make one up for myself when I was six. And there is always the maiden name as a middle name thing. Ah, rats. I've been tagged! :)

Happy Vacationing GF. I loved your meme and agree heartily with the NICE description. That's definitely you!

Now I KNOW I wasn't the 7th reader and you KNOW how much I just love memes.

My middle name is Mitchell. I was sorely tormented by all the little girls with middle names like Mary, Katherine and Grace. I was asked on the playground "why don't you have a girl middle name?"

Happy vacation!!

Can't tag me as I don't have a middle name!! And I use my maiden name as my last name (Na-na-nah JIH!). Besides, as I am late reading, I am sure I am NOT in the top 7!!

Enjoyed reading yours though Vinnie!
