Remember, the Meme you save, may be your own!

Posted on Updated on

caution sign B ikini over at Pantsfreesia (also a lady whom I work with in a remote kinda way) tagged me for a meme, I suspect largely because I’ve been a bit of a bummer lately and the goings on at work didn’t help and I figure she knows I needed a diversion.

Now, I’ve never “memed” in my life–that I know of–and though I had an idea what a meme was, I had to look it up. It seems there are rules to this memeing and so I’m going to give it my best shot and see what happens.

This particular Meme originated from Mommy Needs Therapy and has made its way down to my proverbial neck of the Internet. The idea is to write a six-word memoir of your life.

Egad! Six words? Folks, I’ve never summed anything up in my life in less than 20 words (er…except maybe that time when my motorcycle went skidding out of control on some pinestraw and I could see a big tree coming up quickly on my left side and I couldn’t do anything about it. I think I uttered two very succinct words then, “Oh” and “SHI*!”)

In addition to the six-word memoir, here are the other rules:

  • Write your own six word memoir.
  • Post it to your blog including a visual illustration if you would like.
  • Link to the person who tagged you in your post and to this original post if possible so we can track it as it travels across the blogsphere
  • Tag 5 more blogs with links
  • Don’t forget to leave a comment in the tagged blogs with an invitation to play
  • breakerbar

    So, without further ado, here’s my memoir:

    …*sigh*…this is difficult….

    “Satisfactory goals, unsatisfactorily met, looking forward”

    I realize this sounds horribly egocentric, but after all, it’s my memoir, not my eulogy. I hope my eulogy is significantly more upbeat, being delivered by my uber-successful children and a wife who didn’t spend her best years helping me get up out of my chair because I over-extended myself.

    Duty done, now I’m passing this along.

    TAG! The following people are IT:

    – Trisha over at TrishaTruly
    – Leighton over at My Best Investments
    BirdPress
    Father of Five (cuz dude, with that many kids, I KNOW you’ve got a memoir waiting in the wings!)
    – Allison at
    That’s What She Blogged

    There now…all done!

    Oh, and don’t forget that there’s a Woot!-off going on today!

      Cool! Thanks for tagging me. Yours seems more like a profound statement than a memoir. I need to see what other people wrote to get some more ideas. 🙂

      RE: Well, it was that or the sign (notice, 6 words).

      Gee, thanks, sweety. Mowing 10 acres of fields today so I am falling-dead tired but I’ll do my best. Yours was superb. Damn!

      RE: Do I detect a trace of sarcasm? Hey look lady, if you don’t want my Meme, then just give it back and I’ll give it to someone who really NEEDS it! Crikey! What IS it with this family? Birdpress disses on my Meme, saying mine was “…more like a profound statement, than a meme” and then you. You should buy some goats to take care of that field. Better yet, find someone who has goats, and offer to let them graze!

      Hey! I didn’t “diss” your meme! I said it was profound! Profound is good! I’m not profound! 😛

      “Do I detect a trace of sarcasm?” Of course you do! I’m your Bio-Mom! Duhhhhh… Where do you think you get it from? LOL
      Nah, it was fun doing your meme. Thanks!
