Just One More Commercial

Karen tagged me with this meme.

(1) You must post the rules on your blog before you answer the questions.
(2) You need to list one fact about yourself using each letter of your middle name. If you don’t have a middle name use your maiden name instead.
(3) When you are finished with your answers, you tag one person for each letter of your name.

I have to tell a silly story first. I was watching Sweeney Todd with Enigma and her friend. Enigma says, "I don't like the name Joanna." "Me either," says her friend. I just look at them. "Wait, isn't your middle name Jo Ann?" Enigma asks. "Yes," I say. "And isn't that Grandma's name?" She continues. "Yes," I respond. Silence. "But Jo Ann is so much nicer than Joanna, right?" Gales of laughter.

Josephine was my mom' s paternal grandmother. That's where the Jo comes from.
Omniscient. At least I try to convince my kids I am. Maybe Omnivore is more honest.

Abigail Ann was my mom's maternal grandmother. That's where the Ann comes from.
Nutty.
Non-alcoholic. Could you imagine me on booze? Scary. I'd better stick to butter rum lifesavers.

OK, I tag: The Good Flea
Darla,
Gerb,
Cecily,
and Maria.
If you don't like your middle name I give you permission to make one up! You have to tell us it's fictitious is all. AND NOW, BACK TO OUR REGULARLY SCHEDULED BLOG!

Holy CRAP Shellie, my middle name has seven letters...I don't know about this one...just kidding!!

If you notice that I've gone a while without doing it, let me know. Remind me gently. I have a problem lately with remember this kind of thing.

But THANK YOU for the tag! Despite my seven letter, it sounds like a fun one!!

Why is it that I had a 7 letter name and ended up tagging others with way less letters? But you've done a good job. How fun!

I'm started on it and stuck on the 3rd letter out of 4. I have a feeling I will have it done by the end of my night shift! It will suddenly strike me, "N! I know what 'N' word helps describe me!" Then I will be just gleeful! Thanks for the tag! :) Super name story! Aren't kids the best?

Thanks for the tag! I've been insanely busy, but life is settling down and I'll get to it soon. I like the way you formatted yours. :)
