ABCDEFG...la la la la la la la

Well, this could be interesting. dee/otc has tagged me for another meme. I have to tell you people, this woman truly amazes me!! She's got a spirit about her that will knock you over. I'm not sure I can do as well as she did with her ABC Meme (check it out at ABC…easy as 1-2-3, my butt) but I will try.

She says the rules of the game go like this: "List a word that describes you for every letter of the alphabet. Offer as much or as little explanation as you wish. Please keep the words positive (for example, don’t use “fat” for F or “lame” for L), and feel free to get creative. Tag as many or as few people as you wish. Link back to your tagger and forward to your taggees." - Wait... I have to be NICE?? About me?????? Seriously?? Wait...I can be nice but don't have to be serious. Let's see how this works.

Well...here goes...(think positive happy thoughts, Grandy)

A - Awesome!!! No, not me, but I do use that word regularly so I thought I'd start off with that one. If that is cheating...so be it...I'll be awesome then.

B - Blue eyed - It's one of my best features.

C - Cunning - There's a fine line between being diplomatic and calling someone an a-hole...I walk it quite often. It's truly a skill I'm proud of.

D - Directionally Challenged - It's not necessarily a negative about me...I've gotten quite used to making frequent U-Turns.

E - Entertaining - It's always an adventure when someone is with me. I don't even have to try and the fun just happens. Even if it's not intended to be funny...we'll find the humor in it.

F - Friggin FUN - Need I say more??

G - Grateful - I've worked very hard for everything I have and appreciate all the people that helped make it possible.

H - Happy!! - It's unfortunately taken me quite a while to even know what it would take to make me happy, much less recognize it. I am proud to say that I honestly am...and it's very cool.

I - Imaginative - I love the creative process and so appreciate other people's imagination.

J - Jokester - I love having fun with people. It's even more fun when they get the joke.

K - Klutzy - Kinda self-explanatory, but do you know anyone else who had to chase their vehicle from going down the road (without a driver) and got drug through their own property, where their own vehicle hit a tree after going through their fence...Still caught on the car too. What a ride!!

L - Likable - I'd like to think so.

M - Music lover - I can get through anything if I have music to listen to.

N - Nutty - Not like honey roasted nuts...but the Yellow Peanut M&M type.

O - Open - I do not judge people by what they look like or who they like. Ok, I might make assumptions about people if they smell, but that's totally a reflex response. I'll still like them...just from more of a distance.

P - Prolific - I promised dee/otc that I would work that word in.

Q - Quitter - I have successfully quit smoking...again...this time is for good...I mean it!!

R - Resourceful - MacGuyver has got nothing on me. I'm not mechanically inclined, but I can make things happen.

S - Sincere - What you see is what you get...what I say is what I mean.

T - Tenacious - My motto is "That which does not kill me, makes me strong" and when I'm gone, my tombstone will say just that...followed by "Ooops!"

U - Unique - Unparalleled - Unmatched - Undoubtedly so!

V - Voluptuous - It's no fun to describe myself as "full figured".

W - Witty - When the big boss tries to refer his comments as, "I just made a 'Maryism'" I'm either doing something right, or something has horribly gone wrong.

X - treme - There isn't anything I wouldn't do for my family and friends. Nurse them back from surgery, drive hours to make sure they're ok, I will even go shopping at a mall if I have to...and that says A LOT since I hate malls.

Y - Young Hearted - aka...childish, I mean child like...but "C" was already taken.

Z - Zealous - Yep...that's right...I'm full of......................ZEAL.

Whew!! That was a tough one!!! It was fun...but hard to think of that many positive things about me.

Alright...time for tagging...AND please understand I tag you because I really want to see what you come up with:

Linda, who has a lovely affinity for martinis.
Suzanne, because I know how therapeutic it can be to think of fun, positive things.
Michele, who I know will somehow find a way to inspire us all with the words she comes up with.
Renie Burghardt because I know I can learn a lot from this neat lady.
And I could never forget the lovely Mrs. G. who makes me laugh EVERY DAY!!!

Hey, I'm directionally challenged, too! In fact, I've gotten lost on the way to the emergency room twice. Not my best moments....

Mrs. G. said...

I love "V" seeing as I am a voluptuous woman myself. Oh yeah, we rock. Good for you for quitting. I stopped in 2000 though I've had two week-long slip ups. I don't think I have done many more difficult things than quit the cigs.

Thanks for the tag. I will file it away and do it soon. I have been tagged five times in the last ten days so I'm running just a bit behind...so what else is new.

Have a wonderful day, Mary.

You ARE awesome. So is everyone else who keeps up with all these memes

dee/otc said...

Wow, great job! I am quite impressed with your positive self-descriptive adjectives. I was really grasping for straws myself (hence, the jumpsuit comment...jokester, why didn't i think of that?)

You are AWESOME! ;-)

Suzanne said...

Okay, that one was *tough*, but I did it!

Come see!

Enjoyed reading your ABCD meme, Grandy. Or would you prefer Mary? I had a very bad day though, so will do my ABC's at a better time, okay? It really does sound like a fun meme though.

Renie

Michele said...

I agree with the others--you did a great job on this! I might attempt it this weekend. I'll have to think a lot ;-)

Oh, I left a message on your previous post about what you need for your hair next time you go camping (I think you'll find it most interesting!)

Smiles,
Michele

Grandy said...

Kelly~ My new best friend is my GPS...you should try it.

Mrs. G,~ It's been a while, so I think I'm officially a quitter. No worries, but I suspect (because I found a comment you posted somewhere else) that you secretly despise memes in fear that you may not be clever enough? AS IF!!

Urban~ A couple memes is nothing compared to what you do with your questions.

Dee~ What you fail to realize is that the jumpsuit comment WAS awesome!! ;)

Grandy said...

Suzanne~ Great job! Thanks for playing!!

Renie~ I'm so sorry you had a bad day! I hope tomorrow is a better one for you!!!

Michele~ You'll do fine...and I'll be looking for it this weekend. ;)

Lisa Milton said...

Thanks for coming by my place. I had a hard time coming up with positive things too.

Grandy said...

Lisa~ It was my pleasure indeed.

Linda said...

Thank you Dahling for the tag! I am most flattered and will comply ... in due time, my pretty, in due time! Sorry for not replying promptly, as you know I was away on a trip and now am trying to ketchup! OY!
