Middle Name Meme

Imma (Alice) over at I was Born To Create has tagged me with the Middle Name Meme. For each letter you must list a quality that applies to you as a person. Now most memes don't usually present a real problem, but as it happens I have two middle names. I often say I was attacked by the Scots while too young to defend myself. One has seven letters and the other has eight for a total of 15 letters. Rule four says I have to tag as many people as there are letters in the name. I could end up the most hated woman in the blogosphere, but here goes.


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 their middle name. If you don’t have a middle name, use the middle name 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.

5. Don’t forget to link back to the person that tagged you in the beginning.

--------------- Durward Jamieson

Ditzy - Truly off beat sense of humor

Urbane - Love of many things that can only be found in a big, big city.

Rural - Split personality, spent summers with cousins in the middle of nowhere.

Wacky - See D above. I actually will wade in fountains if there is one handy.

Affectionate - This is only a problem when two children, three grandchildren and three cats try to sit in my lap at the same time.

Rusty - All physical creaks and groans are blamed on lack of an oilcan not age - *See Tinman in Wizard of Oz

Dutiful - Compulsive. If I say I'll do something, it gets done.

Jittery - Only about heights. Even movies that look down off of sky scrapers make me dizzy and ill.

Argumentative - well I call them "discussions". See "O" below.

Maternal - I have two absolutely perfect children. Sorry you got shortchanged but mine are simply the best ones available.

Intriguing - If you like surprises, ask what I'm thinking. It is usually something very odd ... even surprises me sometimes.

Excitable - Hate surprises, want to know exactly what is happening. Kid before Christmas morning about anything up and coming - I want it NOW.

Sensible - I realize this contradicts D & W above, but even when doing really silly stuff, I take care of the basics.

Opinionated - Eat and breath politics and I have an opinion about everything.

Nosy - Mentioned on blog previously - Insatiable curiosity about ideas, events, and history not gossip.

This Eclectic Life said...

You definitely were attacked by the Scots, Jamie! When they put that name on you, it was bigger than you were! Now, some of these I could have guessed. I would have guessed wrong about the surprises.
Thank you for this tag, I think I could do it, though I hate giving out my middle name. Maybe I'll lie.

Mags said...

Ha ha ha...I was going to say (almost) the same thing as this eclectic life...great job on it though.

I think I already did this one, but I will check and if I didn't then I will do it. 8)

phew...that was alot of work...good job that you went through all that..and yes, another Scotty...good on you...

Linda said...

I love your list and found myself nodding my head in agreement as I read each trait even though I've never met you because it just sounds so very much like I would expect you to be.

My middle name is horrible (not to mention short) so I think I shall take this tag and apply it to my daughters who have much better middle names than I do! Matter of fact, I might even throw my rarely talked about son in on this one if I get really inspired!

Travis said...

Wow. I didn't think you'd actually tag that many.
