Oh Me, Oh My

My Merlin-musicals-and-peanut-butter buddy Jen has given me an award and tagged me in a meme. Because she's just that generous :) I'm not a cuddle-with-pets kind of girl, but if I was, I'd cuddle with my award. Look how soft and fluffy and cute it is:

Told ya ;) And now for the meme...

Show us the cutest most adorable picture of your favorite animal.

And just because I'm not sure that "cute" or "adorable" are appropriate adjectives for wolves, here's my other favorite animal:

You have five seconds to survive the Zombie Apocalypse. Choose one friend who would save your butt and tell us why you choose them.
Um. My sensei. He's a black belt in ten different martial arts and almost a brown belt in Gracie Jiu-Jitsu. I'm pretty sure he could handle the Zombies. Or...my little brother. He's biologically protected by the cuteness factor so I think my chances of survival with him would be really, really good.

Share a quote with us.

Oi. Quotes. You know those people who have all these wonderful, inspiring quotes plastered all over their rooms and in their journals? Yeah, I'm not one of them. I like the idea, I really do. The execution of such an idea, though, has been and is still elusive. But for you, I will find a worthy quote.

"Books are good company, in sad times and happy times, for books are people - people who have managed to stay alive by hiding between the covers of a book." E.B. White

I know you had trouble choosing just one, let's have another.

I'll do better than that. I'll give you two more but you have to guess who says the second one. Okay?

"It takes courage to grow up and turn out to be who you really are." e.e. cummings


"You keep using that word, I do not think it means what you think it means."

Using exactly 27 words tell us your life story.
Born. 17 years in Upstate NY. Moved to KY. 18 months renovating home. Writing in between. Goal: English BA in 2 years. Graduate: December. Future: Writing + Jiu-Jitsu.

Please do not throw your hands up in the air. This is not a stick up.

Hands? What hands? I had to scratch my head.

All the dead rock legends live again. You're standing in a fifty mile long line for:

This would involve me knowing at least one rock legend....

Describe yourself using six words that start with the third letter of your middle name.

Sweet (I'm not being conceited, I promise. This is the most common way my friends describe me). Sincere. Scholarly. Steadfast. Sensible. Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.

What is your middle name? (This is for research purposes only. Your response will not affect your chances of employment)


There you have it. I guess the last thing is to pass it one, so I hereby dub the following people Memed:


  1. Yup, you are sweet and cute. Why am I not surprise to find your middle name is Rose? It fits you perfectly like those zebra-striped rockstar gloves you wear.

    Congrats on the award! You rock, Caitlin! :)

  2. I know what that second quote is... Inconceivable! I love the Princess Bride. And I love the picture of a cute dolphin. Someday... I'm gonna swim with one of those. Well, I want. :) Congrats on the award!

  3. Rad, thanks for the shout out:) Congrats on the award:)

    "No, that would take too long. Let me sum up." "I hate ta waiting."
    OMGosh, I am *still* laughing. Your answers (and questions) need nailed in front of my treadmill. I can laugh while exercising.
    And to think, I almost missed it what with summer, hubby going to the dentist, and the wonders of hairballs.

    Thanks for making my day!

  5. Sniff, I want an award. Or a cute animal. Maybe both, that would be awesome...

  6. Cherie - *blush*

    Krista - I figured at least one person would know the answer ;) I actually want to have a pet dolphin someday. Ya know, in my dreams when I have more money than I know what to do with...lol

    Tamara - Really? Mark and Tamara. Your names have a nice ring together.

    Mark - You're welcome :)

    Huntress - "He's already dead." "I think he's using the same wind we are using." I think there are more hilarious, quoteable lines in that movie than any other one I've seen. One of my all-time favorites :) I can laugh while exercising too, it just brings the stiches on faster. Wait, what am I talking about? Laughing IS exercise. All that abdominal contraction, you know.

    I'm so glad I could bring a laugh to your day and a smile to your face. It at least makes the hairball ordeal a little less painful ;)

    Adam - Hi there. Thanks for dropping in. I only give awards to my ever-growing blogger family/network. You're welcome to join us though!
