Six Word Meme...

The Six-Words Meme was originally started by Smith Magazine. The history is thus:

Legend has it that Hemingway was once challenged to write a story in only six words. His response? “For sale: baby shoes, never worn.” Last year, SMITH Magazine re-ignited the recountre by asking our readers for their own six-word memoirs. They sent in short life stories in droves, from the bittersweet (“Cursed with cancer, blessed with friends”) and poignant (“I still make coffee for two”) to the inspirational (“Business school? Bah! Pop music? Hurrah”) and hilarious (“I like big butts, can’t lie”).

Aunty Belle tagged me. That means I'm it.

Here is my 6 word meme about myself.

Loves Bible,

computer,

music

hates work.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
I'm tagging:

Phosgene Kid

Skunkfeathers

Scary Monster

Pink

Lex

and whoever else wants to do it.

The rules are:

These here is the rules:
1) Write your own six word memoir.
2) Post it on your blog and include a visual illustration if you’d like.
3) Link to the person that tagged you in your post, and to the original post if possible so we can track it as it travels across the blogosphere.
4) Tag at least five more blogs with links.
5) Don’t forget to leave a comment on the tagged blogs with an invitation to play.
6) Have fun.

Corn Dog said...

Take everything, but my little dog.

boneman said...

we were the fastest!

Hey, we got a similar...music!
AND Pink!

That's OK. I accidently put too many in...I thought it was supposed to be six.
but, I was working so hard at getting the links done, I didn't get around to counting them till after I was done!
HA!

Hey, does that mean you didn't get the job you were trying for?
That part about "hates work"?

Skunkfeathers said...

Doesn't do memes,
but thanks, Lamb ;)

Little Lamb said...

Aunty, I did take piano lessons but never finished. I really need to get back into it.

Corn Dog, That's cute.

Boneman, I have looked, but nothing yet.

Skunky, :-(

foam said...

Very nice. I love reading all these.

The Phosgene Kid said...

Tag? I'd rather play hide and seek, but ok...

boneman said...

I think you should have picked Carmen since Skukfeathers is declining....

Just a thought.

Little Lamb said...

Foam, thanks. you better get going.

moi, thank you.

Carmen, do you want to do it?

Phos, find a way for us to play hide and seek online and then we can play.

boneman, good idea.

Indigo said...

Well... Mine is "My next incarnation will be better".

Little Lamb said...

Time will tell.

carmen racovitza said...

i do, but i can't, LL...:)

Little Lamb said...

Why not?

carmen racovitza said...

i don't know how to do it....LL

6words: born,bore,bored,boring,Boredom,eeek

skunk is perfect for the job...i like him..:)

Little Lamb said...

Oh Carmen.

Indigo said...

Or... "God *might* love me next time"

Indigo said...

Or... "God *might* love me next time"

Little Lamb said...

You and I believe differently.

ANNA-LYS said...

This seems fun, only one thing; One Your sidebar I have noticed "I Like Mike", is that "relation" over now?

Have a lovely up-coming week, LL.

Ruela said...

v. cool LL ;)

Little Lamb said...

Anna-lys, Yes I suppose it is, but I still like him.

Ruela, thanks. ;)

boneman said...

hey, did you see what Pink did?

Go look.

No, I didn't. Ok.

;)

boneman said...

...I don't know 'bout that, Lil Lamb. Mint jelly is mighty fine on some strange things....
Y'never know till you try.

boneman said...

wait a minute.
If you hate work, why are you looking for another job?

The Lone Beader said...

Haha! I agree with you on 3 of those 4 things.

(Mrs Frankenlamb's meme)

Little Lamb said...

Pink, it's not tbat. Don't let him kid you. He understands me perfectly, accent or not. He's just plain mean sometimes.

Boney, you have a point. I'm hopin to find something I like to do. And one must work to pay one's bills. And also to get stuff one wants.

Lone beader. Thank you. And thank you for visiting.

Carnmen, you can do it.

Hi Lambie! Not much new is going on... just saying hi :)

Little Lamb said...

Hi Indigo! :-)

/t. said...

hi indigo

we leave tomorrow at dawn -- about 5-6 hours on the road -- are you roadworthy? i guess we'll find out!

<3

Little Lamb said...

Hi /t. Of course I'm road worthy. I'll take a nap in the car. Maybe I can even help drive. :-)

foam said...

hi indigo

carmen racovitza said...

Little Lamb said...

/t. I hope we have fun.

Carmen. dunno.

boneman said...

you guys are going on a road trip?

A real road trip?

I have an idea of what /t's next six word meme would be....

no no no no and no.

HUH?

Little Lamb said...

It depends on what you call "real." It's as real as the last trip we took together. /t. has movies of that one on his blog.

Pink said...

hi indigo
hi /t
hi lambie
hi foam
hi carmen
hi boney

have fun on the roadtrip lambie and /t drive carefully - no filming while driving!

xx
pinks

boneman said...

you mean we're not supposed to film and drive simultaneously while we're blogging?

boneman said...

I guess reality is somewhat overrated.

Little Lamb said...

Hi Pink! Oh why not? One of us could drive while the other one is filming. And since Mrs. /t. will be with us one can blog.

boney, let's try it! :-)

boneman said...

/t. said...

from the road,

/t. & jack k :)

carmen racovitza said...

who's jack k ??

Little Lamb said...

Pink, Ruela, /t. Carmen, Hi!

Good question, Carmen.

boneman said...

....are you girls that young?

Jack Kerouac (check my spelling, gals. Y'all may be young'ns but, I'm old and possibly butchering his name) wrote On the Road.

boneman said...

....and I like Lil Lamb's reply bst...

Hi! All!

foam said...

hi thar..
waz up?

Little Lamb said...

Boney, I remember hearing about Jack K. Carmen doesn't live in the United States.

Boneman and Foam, hi!

Foam, not much, you?

The Phosgene Kid said...

On the Road, 6 word MEME by Phos

roll down window, going to puke

carmen racovitza said...

jack must be very old, pooor guy...
my age,i reckon:)

Pink said...

Carmen - he was part of the beat poets movement (though On the Road was a novel) back in the...help me out here Boney and Phos...1950s?

Phos - love the meme ;)

hi all...very busy at the moment, miss you all....

xx
pinks

Little Lamb said...

Phos, Oh dear! you seem to be on a roll.

Carmen, Hi!

Pink, busy, busy, busy. Hi Pink!

carmen racovitza said...

thanks, pink...
this is what i was afraid of...the beat generation..../t's generation, not mine...

i am younger...dada generation

Little Lamb said...

What are you talking about Carmen? You're not expected to know the people we know.

carmen racovitza said...

that's true, LL...i didn't have the pleasure to meet jack k imperson...:)

boneman said...

Hi y'all. Jack K....
yeah, I'de say "beat" generation, though that's kind'a pidgeon holing him.
(why do they say "pidgeon hole"?)

While it was decent reading, I didn't finish the book. Too busy with life, I guess.

I did want to be a beatnik, once, though. But I think that's because I read Tom Wolfe and Mad Magazine.

Angel... said...

Thats a good one little lamb...

Little Lamb said...

Carmen, or jack K himself.

Boneman, there was a beatnik on Dobie Gillis. Remember that show? Maynard G. Krebbs.

Angel, thank you.

boneman said...

Some of my friends think I look like that, kind'a.
Usually just because I have a straggley beard....

Well, maybe because I still say "cool" and "Dang"....
Well, ok, I turn the air blue when I hit my thumb and such, but, that's different, eh?

So?

We wanna know about the ROAD TRIP!

Little Lamb said...

Me too. If you go over and check /t.'s blog it appears I may be in a suitcase. I don't know where I am. Maybe /t. can fill us in if and when we return.

boneman said...

(mphmmmrphfrmphhh)
What's that noise?
(mrphmphhhmrahgmphhh)
Yeah. That noise.
(mraphghh mrph)
You? What d'ya mean, you?
(mromphmphmhmhppgm! Mrnmnhphmnpohm ph! MRITE MOWPH!)
Mrite mrow?
lessee, mrite mrowph..oh right now!
(car stops and a bunch'a folks get out and stare at the trunk lid....
What d'ya mean we don't have the trunk key!?

(mrrrph mroph?)
Yeah, honey. Wait a minute. We gotta go back for something we forgot....
(mroph mrphjgjgjph?)

(whispering...) ok, who's gonna tell her?

(mroph?)

Little Lamb said...

Tell her what? And just who is this her you're referring to?

Pink said...

oh dear - lambie in a suitcase - how awful!

I hope his clothes are clean.

xx
pinks

boneman said...

Y'know, if you're in his suitcase...well. Revenge can be "wet" too....

The Phosgene Kid said...

Better in the suitcase than the suitcase - lambskin makes great bags.

Little Lamb said...

Boney, wet and smelly.

Phos, good point.

carmen racovitza said...

Structured, ladylike bags are timeless and will almost never go out of style.
This Aka bag is a perfect example of such timeless elegance.
It is a simple and classic design, with soft padded LAMBSKIN in a neutral sand colour.
It has goldtone hardware and the discreet Aka logo is placed on the front.
It has a top zip closure, with beautiful locking clasp closures on the side and four metal feet on the bottom.
The lined interior has an interior zip pocket. Best of all, this bag not only has double leather top handles, but also a leather shoulder strap, perfect for when you want to keep your hands free. It is actually quite larger than it appears in the above picture. Dimensions are 14" X 8" X 5". For $996.00 at Bluefly.

boneman said...

omigod, first they eatcha then they make bags of ya...

Hey! Lambs make wool, too. I heard that a lifetime of making wool would be enough to clothe a small village.

Little Lamb said...

Carmen Stop it!

Boney, thank you.

Ruela said...

jack Kreeper ;)

Little Lamb said...

Jack Kreeper?

boneman said...

is he related to Kreeper Jack?

Little Lamb said...

I don't know. And I don't even know who Jack Kreeper is, much less Kreeper Jack.

boneman said...

maybe that's what it is.
A Creeper jack.
t'sa jack on wheels y'slip under the car to jack it up.
Creeper jack.

Maybe we're pronouncing it wrong?
Jack kreeper...
Maybe it's "ja creeper"? (I dunno what that is...)
or
Jack Reaper. Like, maybe the grim reaper's name is Jack, and that's what his friends call him.

or
maybe you heard it from someone that was starting to stutter a bit...

Jack Reap ....er, ....uh....

Maybe not.

did you google it, yet?

Little Lamb said...

I just did so I could answer you. It isn't used as a name or even two words together. It's hard to explain. There's so much to choose from.

I guess Ruela meant it for something spooky.

boneman said...

no... I found something cool.
Now, seriously, y'all know I'm no big fan of Ronald Reagan, don'tcha?
Well, I swear, I just saw a video of Ronald Reagan backing Barrack Obama.

Weird, huh?
I have never been good with remembering those silly number/letter thingies (we should ask /t sometime why they're so complex looking) so I put it in....oh shoot. I put it in my blog, but have to go look see where.
Wait here, I'll be right back....

hhhhh hhhhh hhhh.
(catching my breath. I ran very, very fast!)

at the top corner of the picture thingie in there are purple words that say...
well, they don't actually "say", you have to read them.
But the words are: "when the tv's broken"
(and they're purple to me, but, maybe other people will see them as blue? green? who knows? Pink with lavendar outlines and lil chartreuse bows on the corners?
(I've really gotta go find some nail clippers....
M'nails get long fast and they're strong and it sounds like a herd of high heel wearing mice storming across the table)
(what'a picture, eh?)

I just kept bouncing into those google sites till I landed on something with a photograph of a paintballer that had....well.... that isn't important.
This confounded tapping of the keys has got to end.
You go see the video and I'll go clip my nails.

Meet you back here.

Little Lamb said...

Let me go see what you're talking about because I have no idea.

boneman said...

yeah...
it isn't me so much as the site where it goes, a google video site, but, I did get to record a fair amount of it.

And, you're familiar with my sense of humor by now, so,I'm guessing that there might be room for some video "magic"....
maybe.

The Phosgene Kid said...

Jack Knoph??

Little Lamb said...

Boney, Perhaps.

Phos, Jack Knoph?

foam said...

good morning, Little lamb.
did you fix my coffee already?
jack knopf? ?

Little Lamb said...

Good morning, foamy. I made coffee.
I have no idea who Jack Knopf is.

foam said...

never mind ..
i fixed my own coffee..

Little Lamb said...

That's a good thing.

foam said...

oh, thanks..
didn't see your comment..

well, i have some ideas, but i'm not going there ..

Little Lamb said...

Ok, fine, then don't.

foam said...

it's better this way..

Little Lamb said...

Yes, it is.

carmen racovitza said...

u-huu...u-huuu huuu

boneman said...

Dang! Look who came out of the twiligt zone!

Lil Lamb, I'm going to go post an instruction video for you at that place with the video you couldn't get to.
I ain't saying you don't do it right, but, just in case.

Don't hurry over, though, because you know how long it takes to upload...
or download...
or whatever load....

boneman said...

...dang! Should'a said, "what'a load!"

It's been two hours easy, it was driving me nuts, I canceled it.
Thing is, sometimes when uploading to blogger it's fast and you tube is slow.
Then, other times, vice versa.
Well, Ill try to upload it at youtube and then just droop it into blogger.
Meanwhile, what did I miss?
Are you out of the trunk?

Has Carmen talked you out of your skin, yet?
Is the grill crackling, are the bloggers circling with plates and knives and forks and BBQ sauce?
That may be how it seems ay times, but, wait.
I'll just go back and get my truck, toss you in and we'll go fetch some coffee at Foam's.
What say?

carmen racovitza said...

yes, i did...bone...
i saw LL dressed up in mink !!

Little Lamb said...

Crash, Nice to see you again!

/t. I'll have to check it out.

Carmen, sheepskin? No way! Wool yes.

Boney, I'll have to check it out. I don't know if I'm out of the trunk yet. I don't even know if we're home yet. Carmen has NOT talked me out of my skin yet.

Indigo said...

Thistle Incarnates.

We were contemplating deity today, and how deity's chief power is the ability to love. It is good. We thought of you as well, since you honor deity by studying scripture and by living the commandments. Be well, friend. Blessed Be.

Hi Thistle. I try. The Lord helps me. You be well too.

That's more than 6 words.

boneman said...

oooo mink.
Dang! They're such cute lil critters...
why would anyone wear an animal (besides to stay warm.)

OK, well, I found out why it didn't u[pload at blogger.
And it didn't upload at youtube, either ...
I'm such a duh..
it's too long.

Confound it.

BUT

I put something over there that you'll like, I'll bet.

In fact, I have fifteen cents and two washers in my pocket right now that I'll bet that you like the video .

The washers? Well, I thought I'de try some of that money laundering business.

carmen racovitza said...

bone, women do wear animals ...and they don't complain...;):)

Little Lamb said...

Boney, I personally don't like the candidates are running and I don't care who endorses them. Ronald Reagan is no longer with us and cannot support any of them. None of those who are running represent how O feel. Mike Huckabee came the closest and he's out of the race. I'll have to check out what you have over at your place.
