Stuck in the middle with....

Lisa tagged me for the middle name meme, and this isn't one I've seen before, so I'm in.

  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. If you don't have a middle name, just make one up...or use the one you would have liked to have had.
  3. When you are tagged you need to write your own blog-post containing your own middle name game facts.
  4. 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.
I have the middle name from hell for this meme!

Y-Young at heart. What else you gonna do with a y? Seriously though, I do have a youthful spirit (not body, but spirit). I'm a Gemini, "the child" of the Zodiac.

V-Vajajay: I have one, and saying it makes me laugh. Valedictorian: I wasn't one. Vacation: I need one! Vampires: Totally don't get the popularity of "urban fantasy." I mean, I watched Buffy and several Draculas and I read some Ann Rice...but there are so many vampires now. Don't get it.

E-Eastern medicine. Acupuncture helped me go off sugar almost a year ago. I had dinner with friends last night at 8 Rivers Cafe, a Jamaican restaurant. It was my first time having jerk chicken (very good, but very hot!). The waitress was kind enough to make up some sangria for us with Splenda instead of sugar. However, it was still way too sweet for me! I had to cut it with soda water.

T-Timing is everything. Today is the last day for Frontier Airline's Christmas sale and we're booking flights for my parents, grandmother, brother and sister-in-law and best friend to be here for my launch party!

T-Tree. Yesterday, I decorated one of our pines for Christmas.

E-Earth. Hubby calls me an "earth muffin" because of how I dress sometimes and because I eat flax seed and drink green tea.

I'm breaking the last rule and tagging Sherry (Happy Birthday!!!) and Rebecca.


Sherry said...

Carleen, first of all, thank you for the birthday wishes you left on my blog!! xoxox

Secondly, I love your middle is one of those names that I have always though was chic yet wholesome!!

I love that you have a vajajay!! That one made me laugh out loud..the v monologues was one of the best productions I have ever seen!!

I'm so impressured by the acupuncture getting you off sugar...I might just have to try that (as she finishes the last bite of a huge cinnamon bun with royal icing..okay, it's my birthday but the sugar..bad,bad,bad!!)

And I smiled at hubby calling you an "earth muffin"...from your photo and your smile I can see "earth" seem so grounded and so real, totally in touch with who you are. I'll leave the "muffin" part to him!! :)

Thanks for the tag!!

Sherry said...

okay..the sugar has gone to my brain and I should have done a preview of my post...I've invented a new word..."impressured"!! LOL!!

Carleen Brice said...

Thanks for the sweet comments, Sherry. And impressured is right up there with vajajay! :)

Okay Carleen Yvette, (how beautiful is that) I'll get to work. But it should be noted I'm getting off pretty easy on this one.

I should ask you about your acupuncturist at the next LLL, I could use one.

this reminds me that you tagged me for a book meme right before my hiatus; okay, i'm on it! :)

Lisa said...

Vajajay!!! HAHAHAHAHA! I was so glad they finally came out with a funny euphemism. I crack up every time I hear it (OK, or say it). Ha.

Oh, and the tree looks beautiful!

A sugar-free earth muffin, now that's endearing. :)
