Memes (Mesmes?)

I've been tagged for the Six-Word Bio. by Tam, and for the Three Things You Can't Explain to Your Mother meme by Karen (only I'm going to do it for my Dad), and the Nearest Book meme by Jumbly Girl. So here goes!


Six-Word Bio.
Weary, Tired, Drained, Pooped, Shattered, Exhausted.

I tag: anyone with the energy left to do it.



Three Things I Can't Explain to my Father
Other drivers are not able to tell that he's about to turn off, from his position in the road.
People don't understand, when he says 'portable' and 'tape', that he's talking about a laptop and a CD.
He is not now, and never will be, a burden.

Three Things my Father Can't Explain to Me
Why dogs are nicer than cats.
Why it's necessary to turn the volume right down, rather than just press mute.
What exactly it was that he did before his computer stopped working.

I tag: anyone who hasn't done it yet.



Nearest Book Meme
1. Pick up the nearest book. 2. Open to page 123. 3. Find the fifth sentence. 4. Post the next three sentences. 5. Tag five people, and acknowledge who tagged you.

Er, does it really have to be the nearest book? Oh well, here goes...
Drapery Wholesalers, see: Soft furnishings Manufacturers and Wholesalers, Textile Manufacturers, Textile Warehousemen Wholesale. Draught Proofing, see: Energy Efficient Consultants and Systems, Insulation Installers. Dredging, Clearwater Dredging Ltd, 7 Greengate, Lurgashall, Petworth, (01428) 707058.

Sorry!

Aw, that's what comes from having three small children. I wish you a good night's sleep or even a nap sometime soon.

The book sounds a belter!

HelenMH said...

What a great literary moment that was! I'll have to see if I can equal it!

Jumbly Girl said...

oops sorry Leigh for assuming it would be a recipe book!

Lane said...

The things you can't explain to each other are soo nice (if you know what I mean:-)

Sorry to hear you're so pooped. Is this pay back for your nice time away?

The book?? Whaa?:-)

liz fenwick said...

I'll do it:-) Feeling like procrasentation this am!!!!!

KAREN said...

Wow, you're in meme (memeii?) heaven there. I know who to consult, now, if I want some dredging doing!

Love the 3 things. Dogs are nicer than cats, though ;o)

Hope your exhaustion goes away soon. Not very likely, children being children and all, but we can hope :o)

Maddie - It was all self-imposed, having had such a nice weekend away. Feeling a little more awake now!

Helen - I have every confidence in you, sweetie.

Jumbly - No, we just call for takeaways in this house!

Lane - Yes, pay-back time indeed. Feeling a little better now, though it's taken four days to get over it. And I hardly touched a drop!

Liz - Good on you! I'll be coming to check up, mind.

Karen - Cats are nicer than dogs. I'm so glad you agree ;-) Tiredness going now, slowly. (Staying up late writing hasn't helped...)

womagwriter said...

Cheers Leigh - I've done the 6 things but will do the other two when I can.

Must make sure I have a suitable book to hand to make me look all clever and literary. Am in danger of finding it's Java in a Nutshell, or something almost as bad as yours!

I hope you're feeling a little more revitalised now.

You're dad sounds lovely. My children are always correcting me about new names for things, see I can't even remember any now.

Meme finally done by yours truly. Hope you are having a restful weekend :)TFX

KAREN said...

Where've you gone, Leigh?
Hope everything's ok :o)
