Name Game MeMe

Teeni who likes to keep us all on our toes tagged me for the Name Game meme.

These are the “official” rules ( cut and pasted)
  • Players must list one fact, word, or tidbit that is somehow relevant to their life for each letter of your first or middle name.
  • When you are tagged you need to write your own post containing your first or middle name game facts, word, or tidbit.
  • At the end of your post choose one person for each letter of your name to tag.
  • Don’t forget to leave a comment telling them that they have been tagged, and to read your blog.
  • If I’ve tagged YOU (see below), please join in on the fun!

P represents Pink - my favourite colour for blogs [in fact all shades of red]. I frequently turn pink when I blush. When in a crowd I have a quick, bawdy, sarcastic wit. I make people laugh. Sometimes words will escape before I've thought through the consequences - then I start to blush - especailly when someone comes back with a bawdier rejoinder.

E stands for Escapism - a chance to dream, reminisce and write about whatever comes into my head. I love the chance to take time to just sit and dream while looking at the garden.

N for Name - Penny is my 'pen name' - I still have this horror of imagining all friends and acquaintances in East Devon leaping from behind the trees to confront me for some entry I posted on my blog.

N for Not being brave enough to write under my real name ... but then I'm only trying to protect the innocent - my man, my friends, my family.

Y is for You - all of you out there who read this - this blog of what sometimes only amounts to vague mementos of life, the occasional rage, whinge, irritable whisper of waspish humour. I know I do have some really improtant message to impart - it's just that at the moment I'm so tired I've forgotten what it is....

Now to pass the baton to some bloggers who I feel have a more honest approach to blogging and/or a definite style of blog.

  1. Merryw
  2. Mopsa
  3. Flowerpot
  4. Rilly Super
  5. Glamourpuss or Glamourpuss the clairvoyant

All I have to do now - is get some tea and then run round to deliver the invites. meanwhile if any of you do happen to drop in please collect and carry forward

Well, see I DID learn something about you. I didn't know Penny was your pen name. But don't feel bad. Teeni isn't my real name either. It's a nickname. I don't blame you for remaining anonymous. Nothing wrong with that at all...especially to keep innocent people's info private, that's why I do it as well.

Thanks teeni - I know - but I'm usually such a truthful person that I feel quite guilty when people call me penny! You see I think I blush when I lie. Even a little white lie I have to very word carefully ... x

Flowerpot said...

thanks for the meme Penny - will get thinking!

Glamourpuss said...

I think it is eminently sensible to write under a pen name - saves all sorts of bother.

Thanks for the tag :-)

Hello Lady Thinker - this sounds fun. I think I will just do Merry, I'll be forever if I do Weather...Hmm.

Thanks x

Hello Merry - that's why I abbreviated name to just Merryw. x

rilly super said...

thinker, I hadn't forgotten you kindly mentioned me in this dear, and will reply soon, its just that currently I have a bit of trouble remembering what day it is I'm afraid, sigh

No problems. Rilly, I know just what you mean I have the same problem - blame it on hormones - too many, too few, or erratic.
