I've Been Tagged for Middle Name MeMe



Don't ask me who came up with that name. I don't start this shit, I'm just trying to cooperate.

First, the way it works:


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


2. Players, you must list one fact that is somehow relevant to your life for each letter of their 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 your own 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.


5. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.


That said, I don't have a middle name. My full first name is Bettye-Lynn, hyphenated, so I generally use Lynn as my middle name. They don't get much shorter, unless you're a Jo or a Mae (like my mom). So . . . .


L - Lazy. I have to fight every day to stay on task. I'd usually just rather watch Turner Classic Movies.


Y - Yonkers, New York. It's where I was born and lived for over 30 years. And I'm not ashamed to admit it. None of that "Westchester" crap people pull as code for this dumpy city just north of the Bronx.


N - Naughty. I have an "evil twin" who sometimes just won't shut up.


N - Nice. I try to make up for my evil twin.

Now for people I'm tagging: Nobody. You wouldn't want me to be late for work, would you?

Bettye, thanks for being a good sport!

I don't get the "meme" moniker either.

And I here you on Yonkers. I'm from a small, all-Black town on Long Island called Roosevelt and lots of folks try to act like their from somewhere else (except for when they're laying claim to Julius Erving or Eddie Murphy).

LOL. I'm going to try to do mine tomorrow but mine is longer...Michelle. It should be interesting!

Pat,
Yeah, I've heard of Roosevelt. Never knew it was all-black. When I think of a predominantly black town on Long Island, I think of Hempstead.

Chelle,
I feel fortunate to only have four letters. But my full name is a whopping 19 letters; I have to sign checks lopsided to get it to fit!

Thanks for posting.
