Middle Name Meme

Zoiks, another meme I have been tagged with. I better get on with it, I reckon.

The Rules:

1. Post the rules before you give your answers.

2. List one fact about yourself beginning with each letter of your middle name. If you don't have a middle name, use your maiden name or your mother's maiden name.

3. At the end of your blog post, tag one person (or blogger of another species) for each letter of your middle name. Be sure to leave them a comment telling them they've been tagged.

Bright - I'm reasonably smart. There are plenty smarter, but I do okay, I guess.

Eccentric - I'm a tad weird, and not necessarily in the oh-let's-watch-a-documentary-about-this-interesting-chap way. I have an eclectic palate, I concentrate on odd musical things, and I routinely indulge my sense of humor that many times finds no common ground with readers of my blog. So, I'm not crazy wacky nuts, but I'm a little off (I honestly think most people have their own eccentricities which they choose to keep hidden).

Negative - I can be a real pisser sometimes. This pissiness comes out in bursts, sometimes in carefully controlled form.

Juvenile - Four words: I like fart jokes.

Anxious - I'm a hypochondriac, I have the occasional panic attacks, I'm paralyzed with fear when faced with a mechanical breakdown or a simple household repair. Anxious.

Misanthropic - Not only am I negative, I am also a little misanthropic. I think people are capable of wonderful things, but there are times when confronted with something awful I think, "yeah, that's humanity for you". See Dreadful Reimaginings for my misanthropy in concentrated form. And look forward to a new bitterly funny installment of this feature, Jesus and the Magic Beans, which I'll post sometime this coming weekend.

Imagination - I'm not all rain clouds, I like rainbows too. I think the imagination is one of the greatest treasures of being alive. If you're not using yours, you're missing out. That's one reason why I often have more fun talking with kids.

Nice - I'm nice! Honest!

I'm so nice I won't tag anyone for this. However, if the ghost of Harry S. Truman wants to give it a shot, he is certainly welcome to.

You are nice.

Even if you like fart jokes. (I read that bit about coughing and farting the other day, I am paying attention to you, even as I ignore other bloggers.)

I think his S is for Sexy, in reference to the fact that he would undoubtedly love the sugar water in Splotchy's M&M cup!

My eight year old went through a "filling up a water bottles with varying items to see if anything would happen" phase. He's not really out of that phase per se, but into more of a cabinet of curiosities mentality for now. I love experiencing it with him and encouraging it.

You are very, very nice, and I've never pegged you as misanthropic at all.

I hope that you will now reconsider declaring any more "no meme" months--you see the wicked logjam of memes it created, don't you?

You may join me on Dick Joke Island, but forgive me if I cover my ears and my eyes.

I agree, you are very nice. I'm fresh out of fart jokes though, so just use your imagination.
