A Pome for Sunday and Two Memes

Someone emailed this to me
And I fell about laughing
While saying "SQUEEEEEE!"

Tamra Maew
I thought (still laughing)
Tamra Maew
Is this you?

The End


About eleventy-squillion moons ago I was nominated for two memes by the lovely Furry Fighter, Storm. Sorry it’s taken me so long to do them Stormie!

The "About Me" Meme

The rules of the game get posted at the beginning. Each player answers the questions about themselves. At the end of the post, the player than tags 4 or 5 people and post their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves a comment, letting them know that they have been tagged and asking them to read your blog. Let the person who tagged you know when you have posted your answer.

1.What was I doing 10 years ago?

Slaving over a hot computer as a legal secretary.

2.What are the 5 things on my to do list for today:

Sleep, read blogs, blog, eat, watch TV.

3. Snacks I enjoy

Cheddar cheese, Stilton cheese, Danish Blue cheese, any cheese, olives, cheese and olives, crisps (occasionally) and oh, did I mention cheese?

4. Things I would do if I were a billionaire

I would use most of it to rescue and find forever homes for kitties, woofies, buns and any other animals needing forever homes. With what's left I would buy a house big enough to store all my stuff safely so it would be cat-friendly and I could be adopted by kitties again.

5. Three of my bad habits:

I'm lazy, I smoke and I often drink more wine than the "Nanny State's" recommended "units" (which are so miniscule you might as well not bother, lol!).

6. Five places I have lived:

Plymouth, Germany, Langford, Thornbury, Portslade, here. Oh, that's six. Oh well, who's counting?!

7. Five jobs I have had:

Hairdresser, legal secretary, personal assistant in Legal Aid, legal secretary, legal secretary.


The Three Names Meme

In case you aren’t familiar with The Naming of Cats, in the Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats, by T.S. Eliot, we all have three names! So, in this meme, you must link to the originator of the meme (Tara and Kavan), list the following rules, and then tell us:

1. The name that the family uses daily (such as Peter, Agustus, Alonzo, or James)

2. The name that is particular, a name that's peculiar, and more dignified (such as Munkustrap, Quaxo, or Coricopat)

3. What you are doing when you are thinking of the name that only you know, and will never confess (when engaged in rapt contemplation), that deep and inscrutable singular name

1. Penny.
Drinking wine and smoking!

I think just about everycat has done these memes so I don't know who to nominate, but if you haven't done them and want to, please consider yourself tagged!

Hope you're all having a great Sunday:) xxx

I would have eaten cheese for breakfast, dinner and tea if I could. Sadly, I've had to virtually cut it out of my diet because of cholesterol :O(

I enjoyed the name meme. I had that one awhile back and it was a fun one.
I really think your photo was so cute. What a little sweetie you are.
I signed the guest book but for some reason it wouldn't let me put in a message. When I put in a message it made the second photo. I don't get it. Hope you can delete the extra one. oops.

William said...

I like cheese, too!

Cheysuli and gemini said...

That was a great name meme!

Tara said...

Those are great names! Mom really liked the drinking wine and smoking!

MISS PEACH >(^.^) said...

Hello Black Cat! Mommy is fearfully bad at visiting my friends with me of late so do not worry! We love cheese too here...Limburger:)
I hope you have been keeping clear of your evil oven and ordering out a lot!
Love and hugs from Miss Peach

The Furry Fighter said...

goldenshade said...

Cheese is divine, isn't it?

Tamra Maew said...

My servants received that email too! That is no doubt a photoshopped picture of me! The servant say it brings back memories of the good old days... not sure what they mean?

Purrrs, Tamra

Gattina said...

Geez ! I have got this meme too and forgot about it ! My to do list is very similar to yours ! lol !

Alasandra said...

We do hope some kitties will be able to adopt you soon. Every bean needs a kitty to keep them in line. We have to go snopervise Daddy's project, he would never get anything done without us and we simply must get Mommy motivated to do some housework. ~Socks, Scylla (the bossy one) and Charybdis

Daisy said...

JB's Big World said...

Those are good memes. My mom loves cheese also and is eating some right now! Pepper jack!

Tigmut'hep said...

Gosh I think you might like cheese as much as Mummy and Dad do! ;) I'm starting to think they might be turning into mice... :)

Boy said...

I hope you'll be owned by kitties again soon too!

The Furry Kids said...

Great memes! Momma says she does not think being lazy or drinking are bad habits. At all. hee hee


PS - Momma donated her hair to Children with Hairloss. It's a local place in the Mitten State. Her aunt knows one of the ladies involved in the organization, so that's who she decided to go with.

William said...

I just saw your question on Shilgiah's blog. Her mom and my mom rescued me, my cat sister and cat mom when we'd been abandoned. We used to live in the same apartment complex (where I used to live in the treehouse!). We moved and then so did Shilgiah and her mom, so we're a few miles apart now. You know what, though? We ALL miss the old place.

Gretchen said...

I can see you like cheese.

And I like the #2 name, Pennsellypops. Cute.


Chairman Mao said...

THE ZOO said...

that kitten is soo cute.

sissy said tha floors wasnt hard. they bought some carpet cutting scissors at lowes and pulled up tha carpet an padding. and then they pulled up that staples and tack strips. that was tha hardest part.
tha floors are peel and stick but theys long strips that are wood like, they haave a grain to them. those was the easiest. tha carpet scissors cut tha floor strips too.

Shilgiah the Cat said...

Wonderful answers. I too like cheese. I finally got mom to put up the link to your site on my Cat Friends list. I see William's mom already answered the question about whether we were related. We do miss the old place.

Quasi said...

At first I thought you were really OUR human female. Your answers to the first four questions are the same as hers would be.

Good day, sun shines!
There have were times of troubles when I didn't know about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright stupid person.
I have never imagined that there weren't any need in large starting capital.
Now, I feel good, I begin take up real income.
It gets down to select a correct partner who utilizes your funds in a right way - that is incorporate it in real business, parts and divides the profit with me.

You can get interested, if there are such firms? I'm obliged to answer the truth, YES, there are. Please get to know about one of them:

Hi there!
I would like to burn a theme at here. There is such a thing, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of ponzy-like structure, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For quite a long time, I earn money with the help of these programs.
I don't have problems with money now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I make 2G daily, and I started with funny 500 bucks.
Right now, I'm very close at catching at last a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Turn to my web site to get additional info.
