Alphabet Meme

Vancouver Voyeur gave me the letter “T.”

The rules are as follows:

  1. Come up with 10 words starting with a letter that either you choose yourself or that someone chooses for you.

  2. These words must be meaningful to you and you must give an explanation of why each word is important to you.

The letter “T.”

  • Talk: I’m not much of a talker. It’s a really great day for me if I can get away with only saying a single sentence like, “I’ll be back.” I vastly prefer to write or send email. I feel I can’t be misinterpreted this way. Naturally, this irritates the shit out of many (probably most) people.

  • Think: I’m always thinking. I hardly ever do anything impulsive. If it looks impulsive to an outside party, it’s really a calculated risk on my part.

  • Time: Having a child at age 40 has made me very obsessed with time. When did he last eat? When was his last bowel movement? When is his next doctor’s appointment? Will I be able to leave work at a decent hour when I go back to work? How many hours is he sleeping? How many hours of sleep does my 71-year-old mother need to function? Will my mother be alive to see her grandson graduate from college, or even high school? Will I?

  • Tip: As in “tip the scales.” I so need to lose weight.

  • Tired: I get bored with things really quickly nowadays. It’s very disturbing.

  • Touch: Oh my God, I HATE when acquaintances freaking touch me. ARRGH! It’s so irritating. Keep your hands to yourself. Say what you gotta say. Don’t paw at me.

  • Tough: I’m from Brooklyn. Don’t start.

  • Trial: As in “trial and error.” I like to try new things. I’m not afraid to make mistakes, as long as no one knows about it. ;)

  • Tune: As in “tune out.” I have a tendency to ignore things and ignore people if I find them incomprehensible or difficult.

  • Turn: I don’t wait my turn. I’ll skip you if you hesitate, and I usually don’t notice until after. Oops. That’s, like, an only child thing. Orlando will probably do that too.

If you would like to play the game leave a message in the comments and I will respond in the comments with your letter.

Here from Michele.
I tend to tune out at times, for example right now as my daughter is trying to get me to help with her college physics. As if I remember that from 30 years ago. Ha!

Okay I am tuning in and this does seem to be a very interesting meme to try, but right now I just want to leave you this information that you asked for.

I use a wonderful webmaster and friend, Gloria. Check out some of the other sites she has designed by going to Wild Mind http://www.wild-mind.net/ which is her site and on the right hand side there are links to other sites she has designed. If you would like I can forward any emails from you to her. I am sure she would love to hear from you.

Great job! I'll correct the link on my page. My mom turns 71 today. I'm not accustomed to seeing my mom as an elderly lady. I feel old now too. ;-)

Awwww, I just looked at Orlando's picture. He's so precious!
