Tagged by my brother Ben: The Middle Name Meme!

I was tagged for a fun meme by my sweet, fuzzy brother Ben -- thanks so much for the tag, dear!



Here are the rules:

1. Post the rules before you give the facts.

2. List one fact that is somehow relevant to you and 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.

3. When you are tagged you need to write your post using your middle name and facts about it.

4. At the end of your post, choose one cat to tag for each letter of your middle name. Be sure to let each cat know she/he has been tagged. (It's okay if you don't do this... tag who you want to tag!)

I'll use "MonREOW" for this meme. MonREOW qualifies as my middle name, since Mom and Dad's family name is my last name as well. Okay, here goes...

M = Mom. She and I are snugglebuddies. I love to jump up in her lap, lean back in her arms, and let her scritch my face and my chin and rub my tummy and give me kisses on the head. I kiss her back and purr, and often I put my arms around her and give her kittyhugs.

O = Operatic. Usually, I'm the quietest cat in the Ballicus household. But when Mom breaks out the stinky goodness, I become the loudest, most talkative cat in the house! Mom says I'm singing my Operatic Stinky Goodness Arias.

N = Naps. A girlcat must make beauty rest a high priority! Especially when she has a mancat as handsome and dashing as Mickeybear.

R = Rhymes. I love writing all kinds of poetry and many forms appeal to me, but I find special pleasure in meeting the challenges posed by the various rhyming forms.

E = Ethereal. Mom calls me an "ethereal" kitty, which means -- the way she uses it -- that I'm delicate and refined. Ethereal also means "light and airy", but that doesn't describe me too well -- though I'm an excellent jumper, I'm not light... I'm on the full-figured side *smile*.

O = Odd-eyed. In kitty parlance, I am an "odd-eyed white cat" because I have one gold eye and one blue eye.

W = Whitester. A term coined by my darling Mickey to describe pure white kitties (or doggies, i.e., Titus). I'm proud to be a member of the Pure White Kitty Club (PWKC), the club he administers on Catster!

So, seven letters equals seven kitties to tag. I'll tag...

My darling Mickeybear
My future sister-in-law Ariel
My NOMSS friend Cairo
And my friends Gretchen, Adan, Derby, and Kellie.

That's a really cute meme. I don't have a middle name so I will have to think really hard on what I'd like my middle name to be. I really would like to have a middle name so I'm going to do this. I don't know when but soon. My bean has a lot of stuff to do on the computer to get ready for the big swap. Old c or new c and all that jazz. Hey, that's not a bad middle name, Jazz...well, like I said, I'll think on it. Thanks for thinking of me.
lots of hugs, girlfriend. G

oops, I just reallized I do have a middle name. When I to put in my email address I remembered i'm GCB...middle initial, C for Cat. But I like Jazz... oh, well, we'll see. Now I've got to go work this out...a nap should do it. I'm always inspired while I'm napping.

hello dear marilyn...you did a great job on the meme. it's a fun one, isn't it?

would you be willing to write poem (in your preferred style of the moment) about a feline family reunion? The Sweet 16s family reunion is next weekend, and I can think of no one but you who is talented enough to pen something for us.

Please remember that the family reunion is for EVERYONE...not just 16s and grasshoppers. Maybe we should have a membership drive!
