Mim? Meem? Mime? (No, too wordy)

PJ has tagged me, so I have to join back in the blogging community, I guess. I've been actually ignoring all of my favorite blogs recently, to say nothing of my own. New job and some other emotionally distracting stuff has been taking my attention instead. OK, here goes:

- Link to the person that tagged you. (done)
- Post the rules on your blog.
- Share six non-important things/habits/quirks about yourself.
- Tag six people and at the end of your post, link to their blogs.
- Let each person know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

1. I've had short hair for most of my 44 years, except that I grew it out in high school, then dramatically cut it all off, did the same thing in college and now, have actually had it kind of long for two years. A life record.

2. Though I hang out with mostly Anglican bloggers, the current politics of TEC have bored me into ignoring most of what is going on. Sorry, folks. I know it's important and all that, I just can't force myself to care all that much. I went through the same thing in my own denomination -- from activist to apathetic. Maybe it's a phase.

3. My cat has had a gross skin disease for over a year now. I took him to the vet repeatedly at the beginning and dropped major amounts of money I don't have on shots, pills and more. The vet clearly didn't know what was wrong and the cat doesn't seem to be suffering, so now I just accept the disease as if it were male pattern baldness-- something that can't really be helped. I know, I know, I'm a bad, bad cat owner. Feel free to send money and I'll try another vet.

4. I've taken to considering the following a complete meal for myself and my son: carrots with ranch dressing, apples with peanut butter, crackers and cheese. And on a good night, hard boiled eggs with mustard.

5. I'm very moody. Ask anybody who's ever had to live with me.

6. Although I complain too often on this blog about what I find lacking in the various worship services I attend, I'm a worship junkie. I really can't go long without a service. And if I had all the time in the world, I'd probably go to several every week.

My blogging circle is so small these days, it's more like a semi-circle, but I'll try Diane and Laura.

Yikes! I didn't mean to make you feel obligated! The blog thing can feel like an extra job. I guess that's why people drop out of sight sometimes.

Please note however that my blog is still 100% non-denominational. :)

I like your diet. We can't do peanut butter here though. Can we substitute soynut butter?

Diane said...

I will, I promise, after the other two.. maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but someday... (where's that from?)

All you left out of that perfect dinner was a big, glass of red wine...

I had to delete my comment because it had *another* typo in it. (Ignore the extra comma above.)

I guess this cough syrup is stronger than I thought...

PJ, No problem with the obligation thing. I'm just cranky lately. See #5. I was going to blame it on a low-grade fever, but then I heard that Doxy has pneumonia and had to stop feeling sorry for myself.

Pass me some of that syrup, Dox.

Wormwood's Doxy said...

You would certainly feel better---or simply wouldn't care. It literally knocks you out for 12 hours at a time.

pj said...

Would it be a problem to get some of that stuff without being sick?

Jan said...

Glad you posted about your quirkiness. Basically, I'm glad you posted again even though it took me days to find out!

((((LJ))))

I had a cat with a licking problem...licked his belly bald all the time...no idea why..

I finally accepted it as well...he lived to 16...

I'm also moody... :-D

pj said...

LJ, you taking an extended blog-break? Hope everything's okay.

lj said...

Hey, PJ. I guess I am. It wasn't exactly planned. The new job is kicking my butt mentally and I've been attempting to socialize more with people I can see rather than my virtual friends. Nothing personal, just what's going on right now. I haven't even been reading blogs for the past couple of weeks. Thanks for asking. All is well.

Well, as a newcomer I look forward to your return.
