Me Me Me Me Me Me

Green Bean tagged me for a meme so I have to tear myself away from the non-stop political coverage.

Here are the rules for the meme:

Archive Meme Instructions: Go back through your archives and post the links to your five favorite blog posts that you've written. ... but there is a catch:

Link 1 must be about family.
Link 2 must be about friends.
Link 3 must be about yourself, who you are... what you're all about.
Link 4 must be about something you love.
Link 5 can be anything you choose.

I think this is a great way to circulate some of the great older posts everyone had written, return to a few great places in our memories and also learn a little something about ourselves and each other that we may not know.

Post your five links and then tag five other people. At least TWO of the people you tag must be *newer acquaintances so that you get to know each other better....and don't forget to read the archive posts and leave comments!


And here they are:

LINK 1 (FAMILY): In December, I was vacillating between getting my cousin a used book or a new book. I finally decided on the used book only to have a new book arrive. Oh well. "One is Silver..." is about that dilemma, but it's also about an important "teaching moment" between my grandfather and me. Check it out.

LINK 2 (FRIENDS): Like almost everyone else doing this meme, I don't seem to have too many posts about friends. So I chose this post, "If You Whine ..." because it's about my friend Honda and how she is awesome because she gives me stuff. Read it all here.

LINK 3 (ME): This was an easy one. I chose "Ce n'est pas une blogger." In it I explain why my name is "arduous." There's also a picture of me that I swear is EXACTLY what I look like in real life. Here's a link.

LINK 4 (SOMETHING YOU LOVE): Something I love? What do I love more than my diva cup? Okay, a lot of things. But I do love my diva, so here's my post about it.

LINK 5 (FREE CHOICE): "DeSloFooMo- Shoot Me Now." I couldn't resist.

All right. Now I tag EcoGeoFemme at The Happy Scientist, Beany at One Size Fits All, Jennie at Just A Girl, Cindy at Organic Picks and Jennifer at Tiny Old House. Apologies if I accidentally tagged someone who's already done this meme or has been tagged already.

I stayed up until 1am, yet again, to listen to all the election coverage. I basically listened until no channel was talking about it anymore. Thank goodness we don't have cable (yeah, seriously, no cable, we live in the mid 20th century), otherwise I'd be watching CNN and MSNBC all night long. I am so tired, so I can imagine how exhausted the candidates are. Yet, the race is still on! Will it come down to the 63 delegates in Pueto Rico?! Argh

Arduous - great links. I missed most of them the first time around and the one I didn't - about your grandfather - was very much worth the second read. Nice to know a little more about you. :)

Haha Cindy, we seriously need to start like the Cindy and Arduous Show where all we do is just talk about politics 24 hours a day 7 days a week.

At this point, I don't think it's going to come down to Puerto Rico. My gut prediction is that the rest of February favors Obama, and by the time that the contests favor Clinton again she'll have lost too much momentum. Then again, my gut prediction going into Super Tuesday was that whoever wins California wins the nom. So who knows.

Green Bean, I'm glad you liked the links. Thanks for the meme!!

Your self portrait post is one of my favorite posts.

Thanks for the nod! I loved your self portrait and naming piece. Such a special memory!
