Tales of a Perpetual
Work In Progress

Ack! I’ve been Meme-tagged!

Elspeth caught me, she did. I don’t normally care for memes, but this one is pretty simple, and actually a bit fun. So here goes!

The game is SCATTERGORIES … and it’s harder than it looks! Here are the rules:
* Use the 1st letter of your name to answer each of the questions.
* They MUST be real places, names, things … NOTHING made up!
* If you can’t think of anything, skip it.
* You CAN’T use your name for the boy/girl name question.
* If your name happens to start with the same letter as mine, sorry, but you can’t use my answers!

My name:Jenny

  1. Famous Singer/Band: Jewel
  2. Four letter word: jazz
  3. Street: Jump (For real – three of them, in Bucyrus, OH, and in Pasco and Collier, FL)
  4. Color: Jonquil
  5. Gifts/Presents: Jewelry
  6. Vehicle: Jetta
  7. Things in a Souvenir Shop: Jelly (or Jam)
  8. Boy Name: Jonathon
  9. Girl Name: Jessica
  10. Movie Title: Jumanji
  11. Drink: Juice
  12. Occupation: Jazz singer
  13. Celebrity: Jennifer Anniston
  14. Magazine: Jet
  15. U.S. City: Juneau, Alaska
  16. Pro Sports Teams: Utah Jazz (Jazz is a useful J-word!)
  17. Fruit: Jamun Berry
  18. Reason for Being Late for Work: Just Because
  19. Something You Throw Away: Junk
  20. Things You Shout: Jumpin’ Jehosephat!
  21. Cartoon Character: Samurai Jack

Okay, I’ll admit to using my Google-fu in places. Could never have come up with a fruit starting with “J” otherwise, and I’m clueless about sports teams!

I’m not going to tag anyone – this is making the rounds pretty well. But if you feel like playing along, go for it!

Wasn’t that fun? I got stumped on the street name for awhile.

Oh my gosh, I’m way behind on you! You’re making me want to pick up Romantic Hand Knits.

A free phone every 2 yrs w/Verizon? I’ve got to check into that.

And Star didn’t touch you more deeply because she was a rat rather than a cat or dog. She touched you more deeply because you cared about her more than as just a pet.
