I know Kitty, I know... me neither.

BUT, it is after 11pm, so I am drinking a nice fresh hot cup of hazelnut decaf... MMMmmm...

The kids slept really late today, noon to be exact, and now they are up in bed reading because they can't quite fall asleep yet. 

We are so wildly off schedule this summer. 

Anyhow, I swiped a meme of the web to share.  Meme is such a strange word.  Unique to the 'world of blogs'.  Basically, it is used to describe any online game, survery, or list that gets passed on blog to blog.

Faithfully, as your Princess of Meme's... I find them, do them, and hope you do to.

Here is the latest offering:

Use the 1st letter of your name to answer each of the following...They have to be real places, names, things...nothing made up! Try to use different answers if others you saw have the same 1st initial. You CAN'T use your own name for the boy/girl name question.

Okay... My first initial is 'D'.

Famous Artist/Band/Musician: Daughtry  (oooh, and I seem so hip and current, too!)
4 letter word: Dang! (one of my personal faves)
Vehicle:  Denali (it's a GMC truck that seats 7, and we always need 7 seats, so that is why I know its name)
TV Show on air now or will be in fall:  Dresden Files (not as good as the Jim Butcher books, but good enough to watch)
City: Denver (got nothing on that, it just popped into my head)
Boy Name (not your own):  Derek
Girl Name (not your own):  Dayna (almost our dd's name)
Alcoholic Drink:  Darth Vader  (that's right, not just your favorite man on the Dark Side, but a cocktail, too) 
Occupation: Doctor (better known as 'those whom I visit too often')
Something you wear: Diamonds (as in my wedding band)
Celebrity: Dave (Letterman)
Food:  Delmonico steak
Something found in a kitchen: Dishwasher (I am listening to it still)
Reason for being late: Diaper Duty!!! (2 D's, and long over for me)
Cartoon character:  Deputy Dog (I loved him too, Julie)
Film Title: Dog Day Afternoon (2 D's again)
Something you shout: 
Dammit! or Dangit! (both work equally as well)


That was fun!  I am looking forward to ALL of you doing it!  There are lots of great letters out there, C, M, R, J, I, K, L, H, E, D, G, B ... c'mon out my wonderful J-Land friends, give it a try!

Tina (the Harry Potter reading kitty) has located the new hamsters.  Apparently, she finds the two of them much more intriguing than our previous single hamster.  She is sitting on the arm of the couch staring at them, hungrily, right now. 

Peng and Brownie are blissfully ignorant of the cat!  Otherwise, I think they would be hiding in their wooden castle!  lol

Libby is horribly jealous of the new additions to the family!  If any of us look at them, she actually nudges us away from their tank and cage!  She also starts to whimper and jump to get your attention.  While I was holding one, she jumped up and tried to knock the hamster from my hand!!! 

We are all paying Libby lots of extra attention so she knows that we love her as much as we always have loved her.  We have enough love to spread around, but Libby wants to be sure!!!  lol

Tomorrow, the plan is to go out for a nice brunch again, just the kids and I, then head over to the town pool!  (which is already today, since it is just after midnight!)


be well,

I think meme came from social evolutionary theory a loooog time ago but has been picked up by the blogging community to describe these fun things we pass around. Like those cats that I can't get enough of!

Rats (I mean Dangit!)...I am not hip & current. I have noooo idea who Daughtry is. haha. --Cin

WOW look at all these people still awake!! I believe I did that Meme once a long time ago, but was in the old journal so I'll try it again for the new one, but not now I'm pooped out for tonight.
Take care, Chrissie

I might look into those hamsters, I think my kids would love to have them.
Your cat and dog are so funny ..... love your stories about them.
Enjoy brunch and the pool!

Love the meme's....I will have to come back & do this one.. your pets sound like ours....CRAZY.

  Well, (insert sigh here), I guess I'll have to start a public blog just so I can play the meme's.  Of course, that means I'll have to think more often!  Need more coffee!!!
  The sleeping problem is that it stays light so late, you need that darkness to prepare for sleeping.  I like being up late at night, but my problem is-it's light, time to get up!  Need more coffee!!!  
   That top kitty is just toooo cute-my sentiments, exactly.
                  Gotta Go-Need more Coffee!  Marsha

Another month and then hopefully things are back on schedule. Enjoy brunch and the pool dear heart. Pickles gets the same way if she thinks I'm loving on the cats instead of her. (Hugs) Indigo

love your me me. I love daughtry by the way. I listen to him all the time.

gehi6 said...

I like your meme answers.  You are talented at doing memes, but I am always so impatient.  So can't seem to do them  Maybe it is because Doc wants me to watch all the programs he has taped with him.  Like Monty Python, Waiting for God, Mad TV etc. etc I am sure that is it.   Gerry
