However, as if that wasn’t enough, she also added an extremely helpful note about derivation and pronunciation, as follows:-
‘What is a meme?!
A meme has been explained to me in two ways:
1. Meme–pronounced ‘mem’, a memory
2. Meme–rhymes with ‘theme’, a theme where I am tagged to answer questions about ‘me’ or myself…’
Now isn’t that illuminating? If that has been a test I’d have scored zero, or naught as I would prefer to refer to it.
So my life in six words would be this:-
‘Rambunctious, rowdy, revelry, raising unruly renegades.’
So now I need to tag six people?
Six it is. Watch out next six commenters, you’ll be in the hot seat.
Sadly we’ll have to skip over Bad Mommy as without blog, we are without public contact, but private works fine for me.
Then to “Kristina”…….oh no, my Latin is rusty, I never progressed much further than amo, amas, amat! I’ll never understand her six words. Mind you, she might use six Greek words instead which would be even worse. No wonder it’s impossible to spell paediatrician out here. There again the average qwerty keyboard should foil her!
Then we have “Karen” over at “Art in the Garage.” Now that might work well for us visual learners as she might treat us to a collage of her six words, but with the forthcoming exhibition she may be a little pressed for time.
Ooo dear, can’t do Farmwifetwo as she has abandoned blogging in favour of more cerebral pastimes with a dollop or two or hard graft in the real world.
Aha! Then we have “Your Vegan Mom” This is a very handy spot indeed for those who have special diets. The recipes are easy to follow and she’s very patient with idiots who require the odd translation here and there.
Come on people! It’s only six words. In summary, please refrain from using foreign terms, namely the Queen’s English, so that there be universal comprehension.
Well wouldn’t you just know it! Just as I’m mid ‘catch up’ “Angela” comes pootling around to give me this “Gratitude with Attitude Award,” what a nerve! It’s all a plot to demonstrate my ever growing inefficiency and ineptitude.
She’s kind enough to point us in the direction of the originator:
Gratitude With Attitude: Changing My World, One Attitude at a Time
And the post that started it all:
“I have finally done it…..gotten on board with all the wonderful awards out here in the blogasphere. Yep thats right I have created one of my own. The all powerful… Gratitude With Attitude award. Oh, come on, you know you want it! (LOL) I am so Thankful for all of you who visit regularly, even when I am irregular. :::laughing now::: I appreciate you all so much! I love hearing about your Gratitude and I love that some of you have carried a Grateful theme to your own blogs! I love that you understand being Thankful is not about a passive attitude. It's about learning. It's about seeing things different, having new eyes! Gratitude is about keeping that happy positive outlook on life…even when things don't go the way we want them to. It is not about giving in, lying down or accepting everybody else's rules it's about making your own rules! Doing what you do with a happy grateful attitude keeping the “sour” to yourself. Gratitude IS Attitude!”
I’m delighted if a little bemused that I should be a recipient. I thought I’d already made my position abundantly clear on the issue of autism, that when it comes to moaning I am supreme on the topic. That said, I’m more than happy to pass it along to those who share differing perspectives with lots of attitude.
The first time I came across “Mom and her 26 children” I nearly died of heart failure. Fortunately for me, matters have improved since then. As far as I’m concerned and around here, dyslexia rules K.O.
I know that these are all our ‘old’ favourites, but if you need a dose of ‘attitude’ then I know that I’d be happy to pootle along to “MOM- Not Otherwise Specified,” especially now that the “meltdowns” are almost gone as I’d hate a “frosty” reception.
Lastly, I would have to recommend “Mother of Shrek.” For the time being “Casdok” has abandoned her blog and her role as mother as I believe she’s swanned off to the Seychelles to enjoy a cocktail and a pedicure of the neon green variety.
I am mis-informed?
You’re right, she’s actually working away to sort out the next tremendous transition for her son, but her blog is still there for your entertainment, but don’t look at the rude bits as I certainly would never endorse such a “thing.”
Perish the thought! I’ll stop now as the NPR pledge break is rattling my brain so I need to escape from the kitchen.
Ooo dear, now that’s bad! I’ve just noticed that they’re all mummies and I’ve ignored all the daddies. I promise to make amends next time.
