It's Dirty Dozen Day, Sunday Stealing, brought to you by, Insanity!

The Dirty Dozen Meme

Welcome back to Sunday Stealing which originated on WTIT: The Blog authored by Bud Weiser. Here we will steal all types of memes from every corner of the blogosphere. Our promise to you is that we will work hard to find the most interesting and intelligent memes. You may have heard the expression, “honor amongst thieves”. In that age-old tradition, we try to credit the blog that we stole it from. We also provide a link to the victim's meme in our "Previous Victims" widget. (It's our way of saying "Thanks!") Sometimes we edit the original meme, to make it more relevant to our global players, to challenge our players, to select the best questions, or simply to make it less repetitive from this new meme or recently asked questions from a previously featured meme.
Cheers to all of us thieves!!!

The Dirty Dozen Meme

I'm not sure I want to do this.. but here goes.....

Stolen from: The Archives

1. This weather is really..... probably going to clock out as the hottest March on record.

(Severe rant warning!!)2. You think you've seen it all, you should see me.... try to comfort a hapless neighbor who has just run over our tiny baby tortoise.  This was because the dog walker who found Majik (the size of a silver dollar) in the middle of neighbor's driveway didn't think to take 30 freaking seconds to move her safely onto the parking strip grass.   I know, it's nuts, but I really cared about that little being.

3.I'm sure you would still love me even if...you saw me freaking out over nothing in the greater scheme of things..

4. I think I have finally realized... that I need to calm the freak down about more things.

5. Since the last time we linked up... I can't talk about it.

6. I get super embarrassed... what?  I write a semi political blog.  What could I get super embarrassed about?

7. I really thought by now... I'd be dead because I take after my mother's side.

8. If I thought no one would read it, I would write about... Bare naked Ladies musical tours?  One thing I do know is they aren't scheduled for my town anytime soon. What?!

9. I knew I was in the wrong place... when I started this meme.  Wrong place, wrong time, wrong mood,wrong type of breathable Oxygen.....

10. I am so not above... wailing and getting dead drunk when the spirit moves me.  Though by now, believe it or not, I'm stone cold sober.

11. Let's pretend... that all this Earthly stuff really counts.  Then we can watch Ted Talks: Smart Laughs where the Catholic comedian tells about two Mormons who come to her door and exchange anecdotes about our own religious encounters.  I'll start with, "All animals have souls".  And, then, you can counteer with,"Take care of the Earth or It will cry out to me, and I will cast you from it".  Seems like a nice quiet place to start a war, eh?

12. Just you wait... this heat is coming your way!!!  March is usually a very nice, cool month here.  I'm so glad we got AC last year.

Grannie's off her Rocker tonight!  Don't try to catch her, she bites and has nine inch nails!


  1. Replies
    1. Thank you. But this one made me really scramble! Fun on the whole though. :-)

  2. Enjoyed your answers! Though I am sorry about the turtle.

    1. Thank you Country Dew. Though totally adored, she is now in a better place.. no cars and no crows!

  3. Hottest March on record? It's going down as one of the coldest here.

    I'm sorry about your little shelled fella, too.

    1. We really miss the weather that the Pineapple Express used to bring, and then there was the Yukon Express, too. Oh yes, the MidWest and East Coast got hammered this year. Wow!

      Thank you about the tort. These little being are so adorable that you can just fall instantly in love with them, so I took it like "a little girl", I suppose. I was within a minute of being there to save her so that really bites.

  4. Writing a political blog is hard stuff. I could not handle the comments. There are too many unbalanced people out there.

    1. Absolutely, Harriet. I've sort of cast it aside except for healthcare, and criminality in the Halls of Congress, not the members per se, but the lobby and influences on the "campaign" trail. Some Congress people ARE total jerks but they don't need me to hold glaring lights in their eyes anymore. It is what it is.

  5. Ohhhhhhhhhhhh #9! I thought you were making a goldfish sandwich !!!! Have a great week !

    1. Hahahahaha! Slice and dice! Actually, that wouldn't go well with the chocolate milk. Hmm... heehee Thanks for the laugh! Have a great week yourself. If you need Spring where you are, I wish you Spring. If you need more rain, and Winter, like me, I wish you Winter. ;-)

  6. I'm so sorry about the poor wee tortoise - and poor you giving comfort to your neighbour. Youv'e certainly a good heart....♥

    ps.................I do 'freaky' a lot.

  7. Thank you, Helena. and thank you for thinking that about my heart. You are most kind to think so. I think the neighbors are a little afraid of my reaction to losing a pet because they can't forget my five minutes of screaming when Wolfie, who happily survived being hit in the street, had his close shave.

    And yes, I really do have a freak-side banshee parameter that can scream for a looonnnggg time when stressed. I'm working on it. I'm sure that mental health experts would say that it has to do with the hyper-controllers going bad in my nervous system box due to age related issues.


I love comments. Sorry about the mods. If you visit and leave me a comment, I will be sure to give you a visit and let you know I appreciated it.

Wishing you " ♥A Sufficiency of all good things♥."
