Middle Name Game

I'm it. Laural over at Pound for Pound tagged me with this middle name game. My middle name is Jo.

Here are the rules: 1. You have to post these rules before you give the facts. 2. Players, you must list one fact that is somehow relevant to your life for each letter of your middle name in a blog post. If you don’t have a middle name, use the middle name you would have liked to have had. 3. At the end of your blog post, you need to choose one person for each letter of your middle name to tag. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.

J is for Jocular. Not only do I like to make others laugh, but I also love it when others make me laugh. Women are instantly nicer and men are suddenly more handsome if they can make me laugh. Smart humor is better, but really anything will do. While I was engaged to Mr. Smith, my mother told me that she knew he was the one for me because I laughed at his jokes more than I laughed at my own. Ahhh, true love.

O is for....hmmmmm. My kids would say Oppressive, my husband would say Obstinate, I would say Obliging. They are probably all true, does that make me an Oddity?

This is the part I hate. Now I am supposed to tag two other bloggers. Sadly I know relatively few, and many of them have already been tagged with this one. I will tag Beth at Hunnydu this...Hunnydu that... because she doesn't mind talking about herself and she doesn't mind telling me "No". (Plus she loves me too much to stay mad.) I will also tag Rachel at Three Day Blog because she seems like a forgiving person and if she isn't, well she lives really, really far away.


Rachel said...

Well just so you know for next time...I am really forgiving (that made me laugh) but I have actually just did this one. These memes really make the rounds fast! I just am flattered that even thought of me.
I love how short and sweet your middle name is, though. For this meme I had to do sarah elizabeth. Thanks mom and dad.
And I heartily agree with your first letter!

Mrs. Smith said...

Thanks for being a good sport. You are totally excused!

Buahahahaaaaa, the thing is, I only know one blog other than my own (Well, one blog, two people) and that's yours and so, if I tag you, and you tag me back-well, you can see we could be tagging until the end of time.

I do love you and would love to do this for you, so I'll tell you that my middle name is Ann. (Frankly, I'm named Elizabeth Ann, after my mother, which I never really appreciated until she passed. Now I wear the name with pride and I've even renamed myself Elizabeth {as opposed to Beth} to my new coworkers, just because I dig it.) Amiable, Nearsighted (This is both physically and psychologically, as a certain Smith just pointed out, I don't mind talking about myself. A lot.), and Noodleheaded, which is a word I just made up to describe the ability (curse) of being a born multi-tasker, whether it's appropriate or not. I lack focus, which allows me to write this blog reply, think about a letter I'm composing for my friend Leanna, worry about a test I have to take tomorrow (It's a 3-hour test. Are they high???)at work, and glare at my cat for hopping up on the kitchen counter, when I've made it clear to her that such a move isn't sanitary.

Sorry you asked, eh?
