Amy over at A family Story tagged me for this meme:

"You must list one fact that is somehow relevant to your life for each letter of your middle name. If you don’t have a middle name, use the middle name you would have liked to have had. When you are tagged you need to write your own blog-post containing your own middle name game facts. 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."

So here goes (I'm glad it's not my first name which is way too long).

M= MELODRAMATIC- MOUNTAINS OUT OF MOLEHILLS- surely that's not me! well Embee says 'I am and I do' but I don't see things the same way as he does. I might get a bit OTT when I find he has left the cellar light on overnight or the door unlocked or the fridge door is not properly closed (that could be my mother), but I think I'm justified.

A =ABSTEMIOUS- well I don't drink a lot. I am an Adoring grandma and I'm emmensly proud of my three grand children's Achievements. I did wonder if I'm Accomplished as I cook a little, compute a little and garden a little but that's for others to judge!!

R=RELIABLE-I like to think that I'm a good supportive friend who does not let people down. If I say I will do something you can consider it done even if it takes a while like memes!

Y = YEARNING I have a really strong yearning to travel and see a lot more of the world before I get too old and 'the insurance gets too high'! Of course now I have all the time in the world I have a very limited income. So who wants to offer me accommodation ?(only joking). I am going to San Fransico for thanks giving so I have that to look forward to. Oh and although the body and mind might be aging I'm still Young at heart.

I decided to bend the rules a bit mainly because everything I was saying Embee was not exactly disagreeing but was putting in his two penneth so I decided to give you my take on his middle name (am I being M!?!?):

P = he would say he's Poetic I would say Pompus and Pedantic

E= I would say Egotistical (sometimes)

T= Teetotal he is not and he can't disagree with that!

E= Eating- does he live to eat ot eat to live I will leave you to ponder this one!!

R= he would say he likes ROQUEFORT cheese, he is Really quite good at making up Riddles and Rhymes (I might agree if he were to bribe me with a bar of choc or a new bathing costume). I would say he is Reticent because he is often Reluctant to discuss things when I want to!

I know lots of people don't like meme so I will be won't be offended if you don't play along but just for fun I have tagged bloggers who begin with the letters of my name.

Making a Mountain out of a molehill?

I wish you could catch the little sod that's digging our garden up!!

I think that you are rather smart to use the word ABSTEMIOUS. I did take the quiz that you mentioned in the prior post. I was suspicious that they asked for my gender and race? Were the questions geared towards ethnicity? Well, I always find that stuff to be great fun anyways.

Gosh! glad you didn't tag me Chris! My middle name is Margaret....

I'm just wondering when Beccy's gonna lose her resolve to say nothing.

TLG I think she might stay firm on this one!!
