Can You Hear Me Now?

Thursday, June 01, 2006


Direct from Tess over at her new “MEME” blog is the “Seven Sevens” Meme which I have never done and doesn’t look too difficult or ‘probing’ not that probing bothers me…clearly I spill whether you’re prepared or not! So without further ado…

kp, I am late, late to everything. We are known as the "late" family. Our extended family knows that it will take us at least one hour longer to get out the door than we tell them, when we are making road trips to visit them. We are always at least 5 minutes late to church. I am late right now. I'm so sorry. I can't help it. I hate it myself.

Seriously, I have never done a meme, not sure I could do it and be succinct . But I'm willing to try. How do I do it?

Lateness I think becomes somewhat innate with a family...and I think you've got quite a bit of family based on pics! I don't know why, when or how it became my issue, but clearly God has some work to do in me!

To do a Meme...i.e. THIS 7-7's meme, you just post the questions and answers that are posted on the referring "blog" and you can choose to "tag" others to do the Meme or you can just open it up to any takers. From what I've read, it's really just a way to get to know others out here. Then you comment on the originator's Meme that you've done it so they come read your posting!

There are kazillions of them out there!

Kim, I love your answers. We have several things in our lives that are similar (don't we all??).

kpjara said...

I DO love how these Meme's outline our similarities and sometimes help us wade through our dis-similarities!

Tess said...

*swelling music* JOY - welcome to the addiction that is a meme - you can never.go.back.


your 7 7's were great Kim!

Hey...I was doing it and typing my questions in when I realized...

That's only SIX!

Where is the seventh question? Where did it go?

(Harry Met Sally underwear conversation!!)

kpjara said...

oh no...I thought leaving off the 7 people I tag wouldn't COUNT, and it does...okay for you, me and Sally...I'll create one right here...

#7: 7 things you do every morning:
1. stand up and balance
2. shower
3. brush my teefers (in the word of my nephew)
4. Get dressed
5. Dry my hair (if said hair dryer is working, otherwise gripe, cuss, moan and groan, then bang said hairdryer til it works...)
6. Fix coffee and to-go coffee.
7. Kiss hubby

I can't believe I was busted and even more that you were the only one to notice or dare say anything...teehee...I guess my fragile follow-up post must have scared people, LOL!

Thank you! Now when YOU do it...include all 7!
