Four Things Meme

Here's a funny picture Mom took of me. Can you see the tippy-tip of my little pink tongue?

Aunt Dorothy, Mom Bean to my sister-cousin-friend Gretchen, tagged me for the Four Things Meme. Thank you, Auntie! This will be fun. I'm continuing to purr and purr and purr for you -- I'm so glad you've been feeling better!

4 Jobs I've Had:

Stray cat (no more, thankfully -- I'm a much-loved kitty girl with a forever home!)
Opera Singer (my stinky goodness arias, of course)
All-around Kitty Snoopervisor

4 Movies Watched Over and Over:

Out of Africa
Somewhere in Time
Now, Voyager

4 Places I Have Lived:

Presumably, with somebody before Momma and Daddy
As a stray: in Momma and Daddy's back yard before I introduced myself to them
In the sanctuary room of Momma and Daddy's house before I met the other Ballicai
In Momma and Daddy's house! *smile*

4 Shows I Watch:

I don't watch TV shows, but sometimes I hop onto the entertainment center in front of the TV and take a bath. Mom and Dad make a joke of this. Whatever movie or show is on, they'll say, "Look, Marilyn was a part of (that police investigation)." Or "Marilyn was at Kora with George Adamson" (watching the movie To Walk With Lions). It was especially funny when I jumped up there while Momma and Daddy were watching The Asphalt Jungle, which stars my namesake, Marilyn Monroe! They could then say, in all truth, "Look, there's Marilyn, starring in The Asphalt Jungle!"

4 Places I Have Been:

To Mickeybear's house in my dreams, to snuggle with him on his wall... *happy sigh*
Sometimes *blush* I hang out in the litterbox, after Mom cleans it -- who knows why? Not even me.
On top of the refrigerator! Nice and high up!
On the weight bench. I have no intention of lifting weights (perish the thought). I just like to sit there.

4 Favorite Things to Eat:

Ice cream (Mom and Dad rarely let me have this, *sigh* -- they say it's bad for my teeth.)
STINKY GOODNESSS!!!!!!!!! (*ahem*)

4 Places I Would Rather Be:

On the wall with my Mickeybear
Snuggling with Mom
Rubbing against Dad's watch (I love his watch -- I want to adopt it, love it and hug it and squeeze it and name it George)
Away from MaoMao when I have the misfortune to have a dingleberry (he chases me -- oh, the mortification)

4 Things I Look Forward To This Year:

Writing more poetry for my Mickeybear (*hint* to Mom -- more computer time would be nice!)
Snuggling with Mom
Rubbing against Dad's watch (I really must think of a better name than George -- I think that's already been taken...)

For this meme, I will tag my darling Mickeybear!

Those are great facts about you Marilyn. We loved learning more about you. That is very sweet what Adan said about you. We also think George is a good name - it just fits so many things.

Tee-hee we saw the tip of your little pink tongue Marilyn.

It was great to learn all that neat stuff about you. George is a great name for your Dad's watch!

Irishcoda said...

It's wonderful to learn more about you, lovely Miss Marilyn! And yes, I could see your pretty little pink tongue...I just love it when kitties do that, wonder if it means anything special?

Those are fascinating facts Marilyn!

Diamond Emerald-Eyes said...

Yes! I can see the tip of your little pink tongue!

I have question, I hope you don't mind I ask, but are deaf on the side you have blue eye? I always hear blue-eyed white cats can't hear.

Daisy said...

I am glad you are not a stray cat any more, too. That seems like a very hard job.

Tybalt said...

I LOVE that picture of you, Marilyn!

That was a wonderful meme. "Look, there's Marilyn!" That made me laugh. I look forward to reading more of your lovely poems. ;) Purrrs!
