Instant Meme Ten

Because everyone is complaining that they don't have anything to blog about . . .

Ten Things from the Imagination Prompt Generator
(along with my answers)

What keeps you going?

My truck.

Describe each member of your family.

A little taller than me, taller than me, and a lot taller than me. And three dinky fur faces who are all shorter than me.

Did it snow much when you were a child?

I grew up in the tropics. Our snow is called rain.

Write a letter to someone you appreciate.

Dear Lady in the Big Tan SUV: Thank you for hearing me yell and stopping before you ran me down in the parking lot at the grocery store. When you have some time, please clean your windshield and invest in some sunglasses to reduce the glare that you said blinded you. And maybe think about giving up the cigarettes and the cell phone, at least while you're driving. Love, PBW.

Do you believe that today can be the ‘first day of the rest of your life?’

Well, I'm hoping it won't be the "last."

I remember . . .

What?

Look at your hands. Why are you grateful for them?

Tough one. I dunno. Because they're not hooks?

If I could trade in my adulthood for a second childhood, I'd...

What, are you kidding me? I hated being a child. Keep your damn hands off my adulthood.

Name five things laying around your computer.

Carpeting, my chair, my feet, a baseboard and a naked man. Hmmmm. I really need to clean those baseboards.

How would you rate your self image?

I don't have one. I'm a vampire.

Everyone who doesn't have something to blog about today can use this ten list for inspiration. Or if you'd like some different prompts, visit the Creativity Portal's Imagination Prompt Generator.

  2. What keeps you going?
    Fleets, works like a charm.

    Describe each member of your family.
    Ummm, I'm a genealogist, this would take a really loooong time.

    Did it snow much when you were a child?
    Yeah, yeah, yeah. Let me tell you about walking home from school in the blizzard of '84, we were snowed in at home for the next two weeks.

    Write a letter to someone you appreciate.
    Dear PBW, thank you for having such a wonderfully interesting blog and taking the time to motivate and inspire us to be better readers/writers. (I know I am a suck up, I can't help it!)

    Do you believe that today can be the ‘first day of the rest of your life?’
    I've scheduled that for sometime next year.

    I remember . . .
    nothing. I'm saving room for later.

    Look at your hands. Why are you grateful for them?
    That's between me and my husband. Nosy much?

    If I could trade in my adulthood for a second childhood, I'd...
    be a lot like I am now and not as shy as I was. I'd give those snotty brats what was comin' to 'em.

    Name five things laying around your computer.
    Empty ink cartridge, orange highlighter, remote to dvd player in my daughters room, endless scraps of paper with genealogy notes, bill for magazine subscription I did not order.

    How would you rate your self image?
    Well, it would be a lot better if I didn't see those d@#m "lose belly fat" ads everytime I log into my email account. It's like 3-D coming right at ya. And everytime in jiggles I swear my stomach jiggles in return.

  3. Oh, man, PBW...you did a Meme!!! :P

    I got tagged with one on facebook last night and did that. Which meant I had blog material today. But I might use this one for later on.

    Hope your new friend is settling in well!

  4. ROFLMAO. Um. A naked man? Am I the only one who read that correctly???

    Yep, baseboards, focusing on the baseboards LOLOL.

    Congrats on the new addition to the fur family.

  6. How's that cute little bundle of fur? :-D

    I never do these things. I get them by the dozens and just don't have time. But I will answer this one question:

    Name five things laying around your computer.

    My cell phone, a stack of TBR's, the TV remote, a book on poisons and an 88 pound Doberman, half on my lap, who thinks I'm his mom... *sigh* (and the reason he's only *half* on is because I'm trying to balance my laptop to type on the other half :-P )

  7. I'm grateful for my hands because I inherited them from my father, which makes something better I got from him than his bad temper! lol
