Me also saved by Meme

Well, I was visiting over on Charlotte’s Web and so I am now tagged for the Meme-of-the-Day. Here goes:

1. Explain what ended your last relationship. Oh. Do I have to? How long do you have? I believe that this is the plot of one of my planned novels. . . Short answer. The relationship I am in now.

2. When was the last time you shaved? It was about nine years ago. It clogged my tub drain. The time before that was the time when I was in the gym shower at the University of Alaska Fairbanks and right about the time I started shaving my legs someone exited the shower to the pool and there was a nice cold draft which caused goosebumps on my calves and I shaved about 6 of them in a line up the tendon above my outer ankle bone off. I asked myself, “Why am I doing this?” There being no good answer, I quit.

3. What were you doing at 8 a.m. today? The crossword puzzle while I ate cold leftover pizza and drank coffee.

4. What were you doing 15 minutes ago? Reading Reed’s blogpost.

5. Are you any good at maths? Yes. Straight A’s in Calculus, add in my head, etc. Don’t hate me, please, it ain’t easy being a bloody genius.

6. Your prom night? No. There was no prom night. See number 5.

7. Do you have any famous ancestors? Yes. One of my ancestors was on the Mayflower, a person by the name of Doty. There are others, but I’m not here to brag.

8. Did you have to take out a loan for the University? No. My parents paid for it. They firmly believed it was their responsibility to educate their children and all four of us were put through the college of our choice. This involved considerable foreplanning and sacrifice on their part.

9. Do you know the words to the song on your Myspace profile? What are you talking about?

10. Last thing received in the mail: Catalogs from four different vendors. I am on the mailing list for every catalog known to man, especially seed catalogs, since I actually purchase things from catalogs.

11. What beverages have you had today? Coffee, water, Bengal Spice herbal tea, Spaten Oktoberfest beer, more water

12. Do you leave messages on people’s answering machine? Yep. And people leave them on mine, too, about 13 times a day. This is what comes of working at home.

13. Whom did you lose your CONCERT virginity to? The Boulder Philharmonic playing Beethoven’s Pastoral Symphony.

14. Do you draw your name in the sand when you go to the beach? When do I get to go to the beach? I live in the Midwest, for crying out loud. I am far too busy wading and playing in the ocean to write in the sand when I get an opportunity for salt water experience.

15. What is the most painful dental procedure you have ever had? Having all four wisdom teeth removed at once. I was adminstered narcotic painkillers and don’t remember much about it, actually.

16. What is outside your back door?



Well, I don’t have time for the rest of this Meme.  I have a client here who thinks he ought to get a massage, simply because he has an appointment.  How silly is that?

Blog frustration

Here I went and wrote a beautiful post all about the News of the Day Healingmagichands style, and I edited the post time stamp so it would appear early this morning.  I come to my blog all full of myself, knowing that there will be a lovely post here and     

 WHERE IS IT?     Not here.  Not anywhere that I can see.  So much for planning ahead.  So you get this little rant and nothing else until my massage day is over.  If you are lucky, that is. 

Jim is watching “Saving Private Ryan” as I write this, so The War is on in my ear here.  Very surreal.
