What Do You Call A Lack Of Blogless?
I’ve been trying to take Thursdays off from serious blogging by posting all manner of silliness. Today we have half silliness and the other half something really super cool!
I have been tagged with a meme. Actually, it is two memes. The first one was optional, but I’m doing it anyway. Both memes came from Jientje at Heaven In Belgium. Jientje takes the most amazing photographs of her hometown in Belgium, as well as places like Provence and Normandy. She is the first blogger I subscribed to from Wordless Wednesday; I had to, her photos are beautiful and I didn’t want to miss any!
Silliness: Google Game
So the first meme, which was optional but looks like fun, is a Google game. The rules: All you have to do is Google your first name with the word “needs” after it, and post the first 10 results. Don’t forget to tag people (if you are the tagging sort)! Here goes….
TINK NEEDS (I left out the *~*~* so not as to confuse Google):
1.a creative team
2.Love’s photo on Imeem
5.a ton of pixie dust
9.Peter all to herself
1. I do have a creative team at work. They are very good at analyzing business issues and coming up with unique solutions.
2. I do have an account on Imeem but I have no clue what “Love’s photo” is!
3. and 4. Does anyone besides me find the sequence of search results as hilarious as I do? 😀
5. While I firmly believe that there can never be too much pixie dust, I also know that stuff is potent, so a little dab’ll do ya!
6. Hmmm, I already have a home. Moved into it brand new over two years ago.
7. Isn’t it cool that two of the Beatles biggest hits had the word “help” featured prominently in the lyrics?
8. I do not have a doggie, therefore I’ve no need for a leash. If the leash is for me, well, good luck with that!
9. You know, I think I came to the conclusion some time ago that the absolute dead LAST thing I need is a Lost Boy all to myself. Insert sarcastic smiley here!
10. First of all, I believe it is spelled “doobie”, but then again, maybe I am just old-fashioned. Why, when I was a young ‘un, we had to spell “doobie” 5 miles, uphill BOTH ways, in the pouring rain, with no shoes! These kids these days, with their newfangled “dubee” – bah!
Ok, that was fun! If you liked that one, consider yourself tagged!
Super-Coolness: BLOGGING FRIENDS FOREVER GOLD CARD
I was quite surprised and honored to be tagged with this one. Apparently, I am now the proud owner of a BFF Gold Card! Here are the rules, as passed to me by Jientje –
1. You have to tag 5 people.
2. (4) have to be dedicated followers of your blog
3. One has to be someone new or recently new to your blog
and must live in another part of the world.
4. You must link back to whomever gave you the award.
Actually, the first few are easy.
Mare, whose blog is called Making Memories, has been, hands down, my most enthusiastic commenter. And she also has a really darling family with a terrific sense of fun. And they are Disney fans, every last one of them. What’s not to like about Mare and her happy family? 😀 I think I infected her with the mobile blogging bug. I hope her child will forgive Auntie Tink *~*~* for that someday….
Then there is Tootie, who not only follows me around Walt Disney World while I am mobile blogging (to the point where I try to take pics of weird things to throw her off balance, but don’t tell her I said that), she also performs a valuable service to the community of Sanibel by doing the turtle walk each Sunday and then blogging about it, thus educating the public. If you want to know what a turtle walk is all about, first-hand, you simply must drop by and have a read at Turtle Talk With Tootie You can also find out about the program in general by visiting the SCCF – Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation
Speaking of service to Sanibel, my next BFF is Snowbird, who volunteers her time at C.R.O.W. (Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife and blogs about it at Sand Between My Toes The work she does for the wildlife clinic includes going out on rescues, feeding baby birds, and generally keeping the critters out of mischief long enough to heal. I am often quite tuckered out just reading how her day went. Snowbird has also been known to follow me around in real time while I’m mobile blogging. She’s on vacation just now, and I’m anxious for her to return to Southwest Florida so I can actually meet the woman face to face!
Breaking Da Rulz
OK, so here is the deal. I am having SUCH a hard time deciding number 5, that being the person who is new/recent follower and lives in another part of the world. So, we are going to take a hatchet to number 4 and give out TWO number 5 awards!
Yes, there are TWO fellow bloggers who both qualify, and I can’t decide, so they are both getting it. Sorry, I know I am breaking the rules (those of you who know me IRL are rolling your eyes and thinking, “well, quelle surprise!”), but not really, because I am still keeping it to five.
OK, so the people who are far away in another part of the world are – Elaine of Singapore and Gayle of Alaska!
Elaine’s blog is APAD (a photo a day), and I love to drop by there daily, because you never know what you’re going to get. One day it’s a man praying, the next day it’s giant bugs. I especially like when she takes her photos from unique angles. She’s got a great eye, and I thoroughly enjoy visiting her each day. She also has quite a sense of humor, and I equally enjoy trading funny Comments with her.
Gayle’s blog is called The White House, and I have to admit that what drew me to her blog initially was the name (those of you who know me IRL are rolling your eyes and thinking, “well, quelle surprise!”. If you don’t cut that out, your face is gonna freeze that way. I’m just sayin’…). So I was drawn by the name, but then I stayed for the horticultural adventure. Imagine racing against time to get the most amazing array of gardens planted because you live in Alaska and the growing season is short, short, short! Alaska is beautiful. Gayle calls it “living the dream”; I think we can safely say that we are polar opposites, since I too am living my dream, but in warm, humid, sun-shiny Florida instead!
So that’s it – that’s my array of blogging friends who are recipients of the Blogging Friends Forever award. I want to hurry up and get tagged with another award-type meme so I can spread the joy some more. Jientje was right – it is really HARD to chose between your blogging buddies! There are SO many more that could have gotten that number 5 slot. In fact, I might do this over next week and fill it with number 5 types from all over the world. Now, THERE’S an idea!
OK ladies – here’s your GOLD CARD. Now, don’t leave home without it. Or maybe it’s everywhere you want to be. Um, for everything else, there’s Master… no that’s not it either. OK, just enjoy it, and have fun tagging others with it! 😀
