Tagged by p.p.b-fly

Rules are:
* Each player starts with eight random facts/habits about themselves.
* People who are tagged need to write posts in their own blog about their eight things and post these rules.
* At the end of your post, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names.

Kai tagged me
with a meme about 8
random facts/habits about

but because I like to substitute and rearrange instructions, I say:

Kai tagged me
With a meme about 8
poetic random facts/ habits
about uncontainable

1. I’m not an octopus, but if I had 8 arms, I could write more poems and I could write more poems quicker!
2. Kai’s a poet. I am a poet. I am not a lonely poet.
3. I remember being a single young poet. Love and pain spurt like the ink from my pen.
4. Then I got older and more congealed. (Actually, I can still kick up my heels and spurt like the young ‘uns)
5. My journals were a catapult to poetry, back in university.
6. Now, blogging is the catapult.
7. (Shhh.Don’t tell J. Andrew this but ) I’ve forgotten what a tanka is.
8. I missed National Poetry Week, Would you believe it was in April! One month off, I can’t believe it. I was hoping for another theme month.

Now, I tag these fellow blogger poets for their own unique poetic random facts/ habits about their uncontainable selves. Have fun with it! If you're not the meme type, let me know. I will take your name off the list after you write me a 100 word comment about why you are too busy to do this meme.
  1. Mompoet who is like me and likes to change the rules, wrote 8 things about herself in my comment section. That will do...
  2. Pat Paulk
  3. Art Puppy made it easy for her taggees. They only have to do a 50 word comment!
  4. J. Andrew accepted the challenge.
  5. RDL wrote her 100 word comment and is officially off the tag list!
  6. Emily accepted the meme challenge!
  7. David was quick to respond.
  8. Barbara has her 8 facts up!

my extreme sincere apologies for not taking you up on this tasteful offer but you see I was already tagged for that 8 things meme albeit it not with your poetic spin so thank you but I am going to pass on this as I am extremely busy, more on the overwhelmed side with yardwork and housework that i am actually pretty much ignoring these days since we also recently boat kayaks and the pull of the ocean is also at work along with my basically lazy nature; I will try and post some pictures of these as well as my garden as soon as i charge the batteries for the digital and since I've surpassed the 100 words on this record breaker run on sentence and i am now late for work, I will bid you adieu.

Great stuff, Carol! I love when you do these memes. You always take them out of the ordinary. :)

Hi Carol,
You tagged me! I am a meme-alist (related to a minimalist) so I'm not good at spreading memes or chain letters. I hope that you will accept a compromise. If I can come off your "tag list" I will still tell you 8 things about myself here, then I hope you can find someone to sub in for me.
1. I once participated in a chain letter where we had to send the person at the top of the list underpants. I did, but I received none in return. Someone broke the chain.
2. I broke the world hopscotch endurance record when I was 13, but someone else broke mine before the book came out.
3. I am allergic to bandaids and eggs.
4. My favourite number it 5.
5. My favourite letter is f.
6. I know a trick to get a wedding ring off a broken finger. I know because I once broke my finger with my ring on, and a friend taught me the trick.
7. I have met more than 8 great blogging friends at Carol's FFMB blogroll.
8. I am mostly deaf in my right ear.

Thanks for the tag Carol. Sorry to back out. I do look forward to looking up everyone's answers.

When I get some time, I'll do it. Kai had already asked me, but I forgot.:)

Carol said...

Okay, J. Andrew. You can do it once for the both of us!

Thanks everyone for your particapation.

Barbara said...

Barbara said...

Thanks for tagging me!

J. Andrew Lockhart said...

O.K., Carol. I did my 8 facts. :)

Thanks for tagging me! Mine is up. Sorry that it took me awhile to do it; I was trying to make up my mind. Thanks, again :D
