Oh, Joy and Happiness Unforseen: An Alphabet Meme17 February, 2010
Chappie has a fun bit of nonsense up on her blog: The Alphabet Meme. She got it via email but has transubstantiationated it (must come from being a chaplain, donchaknow) to a blog post and made it voluntary. If anyone else wants to play along, go for it. If not, you should be expecting an email of dead chipmunks within 30 days. Not that I would threaten anyone, of course. Just sayin’.
Using the first letter of your last name, answer the questions listed below. You may do this in the comments on this thread, and/or on your blog. If you do it on your blog, leave a comment here. If you do it on your blog and want to tag ten people, go right ahead. If you want to play along, consider yourself tagged.
1. Your last name
Cxxxx (I actually spell it differently)
2. 4 Letter Word
Crap (how was my day?)
3. A Boy’s Name
Cotton (Well, I’m sure Cotton Mather was a boy at some time, right?)
4. A Girl’s name
Clementine (Oh, my darling, oh my darling, etc.)
5. An Occupation
Chaplain (In honour of the transubstantiatoress)
6. A Color
Crimson (which, combined with gray (or grey) were my college colours)
Cap (Rhymes with crap)
8. A Beverage
Cherry Coke (My soft drink of choice)
Capsicum (another name for green pepper (which I had in a stir-fry this evening flavoured with Tuscan seasoning blend))
10. Something Found in the Bathroom
Crap (You had to see that one coming)
11. A Place
Cherbourg (A good example of just how bad a harbour can be mucked up (WWII))
12. Something You Shout
CRAP! (I’m noticing a pattern here)
If any wish to play along, you may do so in the comments or you may do it on your blog (would you do it with a goat? would you do it on a boat? . . .) and link back (which I will now do back to Chappie).
And, after reading the comments under Chappie’s post: “Cxxxx, a fan of the Crappy writings of Cotton Mather, along with his friend Clementine, visited the Chaplain’s blog and turned Crimson at the thought of drinking a Cherry Coke while wearing a Cap, and eating Capsicum (which will, in time, turn to Crap) in Cherbourg; Crap!
