The middle name meme.

A wandering heart tagged me . . . .

1. You have to post these rules before you give the facts.

2. You must list one fact that is somehow relevant to your life for each letter of your middle name. If you don’t have a middle name, use the middle name you would have liked to have had.

3. When you are tagged, you need to write your own blog post containing the middle name game facts.

4. At the end of your blog post, you need to choose one person for each letter of your middle name to tag. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged!

I am glad my middle name is a short one, even though it's got some tricky letters . . . . It is . . . *drum roll please*

V-Very often I will drink straight from my milk jug. This does gross my husband out, but he doesn't drink the skim milk anyway . . . but still, I will do it out of his sight.

I-I pretty much say what I mean, and mean what I say . . . so I'm often oblivious and/or otherwise surprised when other's arn't. Without intending to, I've sometimes offended someone because of this . . . . they said they were fine, and I believed them! I wouldn't last long in Japan.

V-Virgil, Verlie, Valoris, Violet, Veronica . . . these are my aunts and uncle, and my middle name comes from my mother Vivian. Ironically my grandmother lost a baby girl between Virgil and Verlie . . . her name was Oletha or somethin like, not V.

I- I aspire to think deep here . . . have deep thoughts, and inspiring moments on this blog . . but dawg-gone it, by the time I sit, they usually evaporate . .. what I then find is that often my comments are more "spiritual" and meaningful than this blog . . . but hey, what can I do, I'm working with pregnancy brain here! And I'm still a mother wiping more butts than just my own, and that does something to you . . . it really does. (please if you take any offence to the reference to wiping butts here, don't tell me, just accept my apology)

A- And I think I just heard my 3 year old turn on the video "Star Wars" . . . .I better go check . . . yup, and that would be her dad's influence . . . Veggie Tales??? Oh, no Luke Skywalker!

N- Not all sign language is universal . . . it's something I find myself talking about almost every Sunday. And yes, it would be easier if it were all the same, but the question remains - who's sign?- Besides, same could be said of spoken language . . . But most importantly . . . different languages was God's idea (see Genesis 11). . . so I'll leave it at that.

Now the tricky part . . .finding bloggers to tag . .

V- can't think of any blogger with V . . .

I- I'm over my head, under His Grace (ha ha! Kelly, STILL got ya!)

V- so if your name is Verlie, Valoris, Vivian, Veronica or Violet - consider yourself tagged.

I- If your interested, Your tagged! (sneeky, I know)

A- Amy from Amy's Blah blah blog

N-nope, I'm out of ideas . . . if your name starts with "N" consider yourself tagged, and let me know who you are.

What a fun meme...the facts and learning everyone's middle name.

Oooh, I like it Michelle! I am going to try and give this a whirl. If you keep tagging me than I will have something to post about. Sometimes it just takes to much brain power and time to sit down and think of something to blog about...sheesh!

I tried to drink from the milk container once but it ended up going up my nose. Never did it again.

Very creative! You could certainly see your comedic side in this post. Well done!
