I hope you weren't looking for food...

Sorry to be a tease. I promise tomorrow there will be food here, and I never make a promise I can't keep. Instead we'll keep catching up with old mail.

Melissa of It's Melissa's Kitchen tagged me with a 411 meme. There aren't any instructions on this one, and those who know me, know that leaving me without instructions can be very very dangerous.

But I'll play nice. One of my favorite movies is on right now and that always puts me in a good mood.

1. Why did you start your blog?
If you look into the dark dark archives of this blog you'll see this blog has had a bunch of lives. Almost cat-like. It began as a way to document law school. Do you see how long that lasted? school, well, it takes up A LOT of your life.

2. How did you come up with your blog name?
Like the subject matter, the name has also been changed a number of times. The current name came from one of my views on my own life - no matter how hard I try, things just don't come out well. See I always mean well, but things tend to get twisted.

3. Do your friends and family know about your blog, and what do they think?
My family knows because one of the "lives" was to keep them updated when I lived in Europe on a different time schedule. Some of my friends know, but not all of them. It's kinda hit or miss. Most of my really close friends don't know, because how do you bring that up in conversation?

4. How do you write posts?
Well first I place my fingers over the keyboard, then I press down on each letter of the word I plan to write and the sentences, they just magically appear on the screen!

5. Have you ever had a troll or had to delete unkind comments?
I've never had a troll, but I have had an unkind comment. I don't delete them though unless they're offensive. I'm a firm believer in the First Amendment.

6. Do you check your stats or care how many people read your blog? If you care, how do you increase traffic?
I check my stats, but I don't really care how many people read my blog. I'm more interested in who than how many.

So there's no direction as to how many people to tag, so since this is a 4-1-1 meme, I'm tagging 4 people.



  1. nice to know who THATGIRL is!

  2. i'm SO with you on #6. i find it fascinating when i check stats and recognize folks i didn't know were readers. heh.

  3. Ditto Wan.

    (now bring back the food pictures!)

  4. Hey, I just found out my brother-in-law reads mine every day. He started calling Miles "hubs." Funny.

  5. What a cool meme. Not many of my friends know about my blog, a couple of my youth group know because one of them asked why I was bringing cakes and home made treats every week. It is an odd thing to bring up in a conversation though... especially with people who have no clue what blogging is.

  6. You kill you really put your fingers on the keyboard...hahahahaha - you're such a smartass.

  7. Thank you!! I'll update soon!

  8. see, this meme is fun!

    i'll get to it sometime this week. thanks for the tag :)
