Frannylish's Middle Name Meemish

Big non-sequitur post with a point... In my own Jewgirl way.

I am OCD'ng myself into a frenzy with
Twitter. I can't stop twittering myself (pun yourselves into a good shvitz, ga'head. I just gave ya's a beauuutiful set up). I did manage to tear myself away, but it was sooooooooo hard.

I exercised.

It was a busy day. I was so very busy with myself.

I have many e-stalks to respond to.

I realized something today, too, I love multi-tasking. I think it's hardwired into my DNA? Lately, I've been dishing with one of my BFF's about simplifying my life, something I want to do. I also love multi-tasking. I'm trying to figure out how to do both better.

Frannylish posted about an organization called Black and Missing. Please read her post and support this endeavor- I'm so happy she posted about this.

I dished with my youngest brother today. He's a great kid. He's also 21, so when he calls I ask, "Is everything okay? Are you in trouble? Do you need anything?" Kid's great, thank God.

Today is my sister's anniversary. She's a married lady of two-years now.

I found a dishy new blog via twitter today that you must check out,
Aliza Sherman Rants and Raves, she's an insightful bird. Check it out.

I have so much to do, I don't know where to begin.

I love men with full beards. It started with a lumberjack I met while skiing in Lake Tahoe when I was a freshman in college. Three days of skiing, drinking and fucking. Oh, wait, we did dish a bit. I adored his wood driven yarns. They were so lumbery in that ice-cooler-proper-lunch kind of way.

I'm listening to Aretha Franklin sing Amazing Grace, live-- So beautiful.

AHHHHHHKAAAAAY ... Frannylish's Meem, The Middle Name Meeme

Here are the Rules

1. You have to post the rules before you give your answers.

2. You must list one fact about yourself beginning with each letter of your middle name. (If you don't have a middle name, use your maiden name or your mother's maiden name).

3. At the end of your blog post, you need to tag one person (or blogger of another species) for each letter of your middle name. (Be sure to leave them a comment telling them they've been tagged.)

My middle name is LOUIE. I'm named after my great grandparents, Katie and Louie. Is that TMI? Moving along.

L: Loquacious, loving and too literal sometimes. I can be shamefully gullible in that 52-card-pick-up-way. I've also missed the joke. Shame.Shame.Shame. While reading like-it-matters, even if I know what a word is, I'll mispronounce it and forget the meaning. I'm not sure why this is. Here's an example: I spent six-months looking for pre-sifted flour and could not, for the life of me, find it. Every time I strolled my ass down the baking aisle, I kept seeing prestified flour. Remember the movie The Untouchables? I never saw it, I saw The oon-too-shah-blays. I love falling in love as much as I love falling out of love. Weird, right? I know.

O: Open, I am very open-minded and insatiably curious by nature.

U: Umbilical chord, not something I believe needs to be metaphorically cut in order to be independent.

I: Indecisive & irreplaceable, I'm indecisive about little decisions, not big ones. To love and be loved by the people in my life is what I regard as irreplaceable, not the tchoch.

E: Enraptured, entertained & enthusiastic. You write the definition. Kidding. I'm easily entertained and love to laugh. Each of my pursuits is done with great enthusiasm and drive. Hello, are you new, I'm enraptured by love.

Now, who to tag... Hmmm

Ah the memories.
You must metaphorically cut the umbilicus if you wish to have a metaphoric navel on which to metaphorically contemplate.

I just wrote like a brilliant fucking comment, that ran so extemporaneously and the fucking blogger monster ate it.

That said, I still love you sister!

Doc said...


I did this meme already. And you commented on it too!

I fail to see the point of 'twitter'. Why not attach a live-feed camera to your forehead?
That's next I reckon.
Besides, I signed up and was promptly 'delisted' within 5 minutes. It doesn't like the word 'Cunt' it appears.

Hello, I'm from Fran's. Love your blog, and figured I'd stop by and say hello. I'll be back.

Precious! Too much fun. And those graphics? Perfect. And now? Maybe stolen.

Now the question is, do I use my given middle name or my chose one?


Dale said...

Louie, sounds suspiciously like LeeWee if you say it just so.

Only you could want to simplify your life by doing more! If only I were more like you.

Dr. Monkey Von Monkerstein said...

I'm laughing thinking of you making the beast with two backs with all kinds of bearded guys, especially someone like this:

I'll do the meme soon, I promise.

Cup said...

I'll meme this weekend. LOVE your full name.

BTW, since we're being a bit TMI today, Favorite Boy has a lovely beard ... and he sure knows how to use it.

Ms Smack said...

Mountjoy has left the building sweetheart, 'member?

I like this post you know. You sound fresh and vibrant.


Al Sensu said...

"I was so very busy with myself."

So was I, but it only took five minutes.

Ms. Schwartz,

Revenge is a dish best served with a meme.

Oh, and LeeWee says she wants her Tupperware back. Filled with kugel, no less.
