Because I Have Another Name Besides Mommy

I’ve been tagged for a middle name meme by Jennifer at Spaghetti Harvest and Jen at Thirty-One Trendy and why not get crazy and post two memes within two weeks. Miss A woke up at 5 a.m. and wanted to eat a turkey hot dog, so it’s been one of those days.

I’m supposed to reveal some riveting facts about myself using my middle name, so you may want to sit down. My middle name is now officially my maiden name but I’m going to cheat and use my original middle name, Lynn, because it’s short and I’m lazy.

L: Let’s see. L is difficult. I just admitted I can be lazy. How about lightweight? Oh sure, I talk a big talk about my love for margaritas, but honestly one good top-shelf margarita and I’m a happy woman. Two? I’m fighting sleep. Three margaritas and chips and queso? I’m curled up in bed by 10 p.m. with my memory foam pillow as soon as I take my contacts out.

Y: Youthful. I’m 38 but heck if I don’t feel act 28 half the time. I retired my black leather mini skirt years ago, though. Other than that, I still like to think I’m pretty youthful and hip. Just don’t ask me to sprint or put on a bikini or I’ll confess to being close to 40.

N: Nice. Yes, I’m nice. You know that already. (See previous meme.) How about nerdy? I was on the newspaper staff in both high school and college and my career involves proofreading and editing documents that would put 99 percent of you to sleep.

N: Neurotic. I tend to obsess about things just a bit. I believe I inherited this trait. I distinctly remember an afternoon about 10 years ago at work when my grandmother called me out of the blue to tell me she was worried because I hadn’t trimmed our dog Bailey’s nails. No matter that I was actually working and couldn’t go home right then and there to trim dog nails. This was important.

I’m tagging Colleen, Froggie Mom, Amy at Milk Breath and Margaritas, Anne, and Bluegrass Mama, but let me know if you participate, too.


  1. Bluegrass Mama says:

    My sisters’ middle names are Kay, Jean and Jane.

    Mine is Elizabeth. You owe me big time, Jamie Lynn!

  2. Renee says:

    You know what? My middle name is ‘Renee’; my first is ‘Suzanne’. I’ll have to play tomorrow. Thanks for tagging me.
