I was doing a lot of thinking during my little Christmas vacation about what I like/dislike about myself. Quickly finding there was little I disliked about myself, I moved on to what I liked best about myself.

Upon great instrospection, I decided my very best trait is my ability to make people laugh. I think I have a fairly quick wit and try to use it whenever I can. If I can make someone laugh, it takes them away from any problems or cares they might have at least for a few minutes. I don't care if they are laughing at me, with me, near me...just so I can see that delightful smile on their faces.

I've also found it to be a great asset, when I am sad, hurt, or just plain want to change the subject. Laughter, indeed, is the very best medicine.

So take a personal inventory and see what your best asset is. You'll probably find there are a lot of remarkable things about yourself. Its a great morale booster. Share if you like or just plant a delightful smile on your face for the wonderful person you are!


Well, apparently, I have at least three of them. I've known about them for awhile, but I've been a tad bit busy with the holiday season and all. However, people seem to be aggressively asserting their will that I produce on these memes, so here goes.

Just so y'all know (and you know who you are), there will be coal in your stockings...even if it is late coal. Look for it!


1. I am constantly doing stuff with my hands. Usually, I am picking at my face or at my nails. Otherwise, I am playing games I have made up with my fingers...sounds strange, but it keeps me occupied. I think I always need to be doing at least two things at once.

2. I always pick apart my food. It makes it seem like there is more food and makes it last longer. A long-time dieter trick.

3. I'm a very fussy eater. Even at a party with lots of food, if there isn't something that fits in with what I consider "healthy" (or if I haven't enough calories left for that day to splurge), I will just go hungry. I don't expect anyone to cater to me so it really doesn't bother me. I also almost always arrive somewhere with a Diet Pepsi or two on hand, just in case there's no diet pop. I try to be prepared. Yes, I am a dietaholic.

4. I pretty much hate ice. I get cold very easily. I would rather drink semi-warm liquids than get cold by drinking something with ice in it.

5. I say "Meem". I don't care if the "proper" pronunciation is "mem" (like m'aam with an 'e'), I prefer Meeem!

Thanks so much to Sissy of "What Next" for tagging with that one!


1. Without a doubt #1 is Miracle on 34th St (original version)

After that, they are all pretty close...

2. How the Grinch Stole Christmas (cartoon)
3. Santa Clause is Comin' to Town (cartoon)
4. The Santa Clause
5. Jingle All the Way

Thanks to Lee Ann of Le Ann's View (and I am NOT a trouble maker) for that one.


Oh yeah, hurray, Oddybobo of Oddybobo 2.0 (huh, didn't you used to be Boboblogger??) tagged me with the same meme as Lee Ann. Yeah, I'm done! You both shall have coal dumped unceremoniously on your houses!

And, no, I'm a rebel (according to this underwear quiz I found at Lee Ann's), so I am NOT going to pass either of these delightful meme on!

So Tammi of Tammi's World is on the move to a new place again. And she will be incommunicado with her computer/blog/internet for a few days. Maybe we should give her a big welcome?

I'm thinking one of her last blogs was about the "cravings" she frequently has. She only talked about food cravings, but I know the woman has plenty of carnal cravings. I think we should bless her new abode with some answers to her prayers. Contagion of Miasmatic Review and the rest of the crew helping her move will bring the bar first so there will be plenty of liquor.

So how about it? Care to quench Tammi's cravings? Come on over and join the party...

Here's what I'm dropping off first...

Yeah, that's probably what it will be like on Saturday - her moving day in Northern IL!

Here's just a few pictures of Tammi's World when she does just a "little" bit of decorating for Christmas. There were a lot more, but she really isn't fond of her current residence so I'm just posting the nicest ones.

"What is Christmas w/o the Bucs" (Hee, hee, I won't answer that one!)

Too bad, she will have take down all her decorations in a few weeks for the big move. However, I guess the end result will be more than worth it for her.

Any bets if she'll get the new place decorated in the one week she has before Christmas? Or maybe she'll just extend Christmas in "Tammi World"


Straight from mousy brown to blazing red...What do you think?
