Mother Meme

OK I find this amusing, in all my months of blogging no one has ever tagged me for a meme. This does not upset me so don't be all, "OMG Microblogologist is such an unpopular whiner!" And I don't need to get flooded with meme tags, remember I will enact swift and total revenge on anyone who over-tags me by over-tagging them back with my access to multitudes of inane myspace bulletins! That aside my mother sent me an e-mail meme (what are they called in e-mail language, on myspace they are usually called surveys...). Breaking my normal rule of not posting someone's name without their permission here is my mom's meme with her answers (she doesn't have a blog I can link... yet, my commentary in parenthesis):

1. Six names you go by:
1. Susan
2. Sue
3. Susanita
4. Suzy
5. Mom
6. Grah
(interesting, I guess "Mom" and "Grah" aren't the cool names, not good enough for #1&2 eh Mommy?)

2. Three things you are wearing right now:
1. black denim pants
2. black sweatshirt
3. camouflage t-shirt
(I thought you swore off black after Grandpa said it made you look like a bowling ball, yes my grandpa can be a jackass dear readers, I wrote him a bitchy e-mail after hearing that one! Oh and Mom does not resemble a bowling ball dressed in any color, I'd post pics to prove it but she knows where I live and I'd like to be able to see my family again...)

Three things you want very badly right now:
1. for more hours at work
2. for it to be warmer
3. for my foot to be totally normal
(Thank all that is holy that sex is not on this list! I would've been so traumatized! My mother is a virgin damnit, Daddy said the storks came and dropped us off and I believe him! That said #1 is just pathetic, totally get 2 and 3.)

4. T
hree people who will fill this out:
1. Mel
2. Karen
3. Richard
(I am 2 not 1, sad, and rather presumptive aren't we...)

Two things you did last night:
1. read with [Niecey] for 90 minutes
2. watched American Idol
(I don't refer to the kiddo by name on the blog Mom, nor our hometown, don't want to end up on the news the bad way.)

Two things you ate today:
1. lasagna made by a co-worker
2. Alphabet cereal in skim milk
(Skim milk is gross, you should drink real milk, oh and a study showed a little milk fat is good for you.)

People you last talked to on the phone:
1. AT&T about my cell phone
2. Richard
(The red button turns it on AND off)

Two things you are going to do tomorrow:
1. work
2. see Twilight with Cheryl at the Tivoli
(Hahaha, Cheryl had no idea you had plans! Funny that you are going to watch the movie of the only vampire romance book you have not read.)

9. Your favorite beverages:
1. cold water
2. decaf tea (iced or hot)
(Can't think of anything snarky to say here, I must be losing it!)

And now to answer these burning questions myself:

1. Six names you go by:
1. Karen
2. Auntie Kee
3. Microblogologist
4. Microbiologist (this one amuses me)
5. Micro
6. Real Karen (there will be a post on this)

2. Three things you are wearing right now:
1. Jeans, leggings, and fuzzy pants.
2. Two shirts, a fuzzy shirt and a hoodie.
3. Boots, regular socks and fuzzy socks.

3. Three things you want very badly right now:
1. To stop refluxing/having GI issues.
2. For it to be 80°F during the day and 65°F at night all the time.
3. Niecey cuddles.

4. T
hree people who will fill this out:
Whomever wants to may play along, I am not officially tagging anyone.

5. Two things you did last night:
1. Wrote a blog post.
2. Listened to the Dreidel song (seriously the Jews' song is way better than most of the Christmas songs and it makes me giggle to see it listed as a "Christmas song"!)

6. Two things you ate today:
1. French toast
2. Chicken noodle soup
*cough and chocolate cough*

7. People you last talked to on the phone:
1. Niecey, she has discovered that hitting the redial button on the phone calls me, which will work until someone in my anti-social family calls someone other than me on that phone, this could get interesting.
2. Auntie D

8. Two things you are going to do tomorrow:
1. Spend a few hours in the lab inoculating and pouring plates and such.
2. Water Aerobics (it's back!!!!!!!!!!)

9. Your favorite beverages:
1. AE 2% Chocolate Milk
2. 2% Milk

Welcome to my blog Mom, while this is the official my linking you I totally know that you accidentally linked yourself and so may or may not have "snooped", I don't care if you have (I could have stopped you had I wanted to). I planned to link you eventually *cough after editing some posts cough*, I was introducing you to the concept with my vague blog references. Oh and don't freak out about stuff I write, if something is serious I'll probably let you know, or tell Cheryl because she is on skype so ask her, though she has the attention span of a gnat so probably will forget... You may comment if you like, I prefer you click name/url, you can write your name (Mom or Grah/Graw/Gra, not Susan like you keep signing your e-mails... I'm still your daughter...) and leave the URL blank. Oh and this so counts as communicating so my being a neglectful e-mailer is negated now by this (plus it is not like I have much to say in response to you talking about work, you so need to get a life or a more interesting job!). Love you! (I bee-lieve my not posting your Halloween costume is my mother's day present to you this year, the horrible pun would bee your bonus gift, though this parenthetical will likely get the attention of my regulars and have them taunt you into saying I can post it, I am so evil!)

And a little extra for all of you:
Public Service Announcement from Niecey: Fiber makes you poop like you never pooped before! (thanks Auntie Cheryl for teaching Niecey about fiber and Niecey for making me laugh my butt off when she called me to let me know this while I was working and to tell me to put it on my blog.)

Glad I can amuse you. I never realized that it is "blog" ologist!

The Microblogologist said...

You amuse me all the time, calling me "micro" or "microbiologist" only gets a smirk for you since your posts are what really make me giggle! I forget the technical jargon for it but in non-headshrinker's terms basically the brain does not read all the letters in a word. Instead the brain looks at the beginning and end, the letters in the middle can be all garbled up and your brain would still be able to read the words with relative ease.

There is a chain e-mail circulating that has a paragraph that is written all garbled that details it, I saw that and learned about the technical side in my psych 100 class at Benedictine. Most people who read my blog name see "microbiologist" because that is the word the brain is used to. So I actually learned something applicable to my life in one of my gen ed courses! That and it does tend to give one a bit of an ego trip to be referred to as THE microbiologist when there are millions of other microbiologists and most of them are way better and more deserving of the distinction, lol!

The problem with the name for me is that I have to pay close attention to which I am using and I always hesitate when writing either. It wouldn't do to fill out an application and list myself as a microblogologist! Or to have written it on the tape I put over my boss's door plaque (someone at a conference referred to her as a food microbiologist, she is technically a chemist and totally balked at this reputation of being a microbiologist, I laughed my butt off "with" her and since I worked late I totally "fixed" her plaque, if she decides to strangle me it was nice knowing you!).

nonna said...

darn! i thought i was the one who called you micro. i didn't know weasel was as lazy as i! lol
i've read that chain email too so i knew exactly what you were talking about when you explained to me about the brain reading misspelled words correctly :)

must admit you ate better than i so far today. i had some m&m's for um i guess breakfast and lunch and mcdonald's for dinner which is completely seashore's fault and the g-kid! but then, my nutrionist doesn't read my blog and i've got at least 4 or 5 months before my next blood work so i have no reason to behave :)

The Microblogologist said...

Nonna: A lot of bloggers shorten it to micro, you were one of the first though I think and do it most often. That was one of two or three chain e-mails that my psych prof used in class to show off brain phenomenon, it was rather interesting.

I think I totally dodged the nutritionist/dietitian bullet! I whined a LOT about how mean she was to me and such and last visit Doc kinda sighed and said something about "we" have to figure out how many calories I need for everything I do so I can maintain my current scrawniness and not drop. Poor Doc, all the people he tries to add to Team Karen do not interact well with Karen and he ends up having to do whatever they were supposed to do. The man has spoiled me rotten, now I expect a doctor that gives a shit and knows what the hell he is talking about, I have not encountered too many with those traits. Taking my multivitamin, and perhaps water aerobics, had my blood results come back spectacular in September. Doc was surprised and pleased and it totally was part of him letting me dodge the referral (that and my bitching), think he was expecting my blood results to be shitty from my slacking on the diet. Good luck with your healthy eating!

I live to serve "Kee". It also lets me get away with giving kid raisin brain straight up for snacks.

The Microblogologist said...

I was talking loudly repeating what she said in hopes that it would mess with jerkface's head, not sure if it did or not. Unfortunately his head didn't explode like I wanted it to, maybe next time.
