Alright, I Guess I Am Going To Have To Step Up

Hey, it’s still January, idn’t it?

One last meme for January Is Meme Month. You need to answer it today, because this meme will not function during February Is No Meme Month.

It’s all about word fun, because words are fun.

Give me 1 noun, 2 verbs and 3 adjectives you like. You can also provide an optional made-up word.

Here’s mine:

1 Noun: potash
2 Verbs: sputter, fizzle
3: Adjectives: dodgy, crunchy, outlandish
4: Made-up word: glorbenacious

If I did not tag you specifically, it is only because time is of the essence. You have been tagged mentally by me.

February approaches! You have less than 24 hours to complete this meme and pass it on.

What are you waiting for?!!

I Got Your Linkback Right Here

This morning, I have been feeling some guilt regarding a meme I participated in.

One of the stipulations of the meme was that I link back to its originator. I didn’t do this. In fact, I was a little obnoxious about not doing it.

Since January Is Meme Month, I feel like I really should comply with this request.

Here it is:

Lazy Eye Theatre

Of course, I could have just edited my original meme post and added the linkback there, but then none of you would be aware of what a nice guy I am.

My Problem With Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer

So I have kids, and I sing a lot, so I sometimes sing kid songs out of the blue.

I have noticed I consistently mess up the the last few lines of Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer, and for the life of me can’t remember the right lyrics when I’m singing.

Here’s the correct last few lines:
Then all the reindeer loved him
as they shouted out with glee,
Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer,
you’ll go down in history!

Here’s what I sing:
Then all the other reindeer
Who used to laugh and call him names…

Then I’m stuck. I know Rudolph goes down in history, but I don’t know how to get there from the reindeer who used to laugh at him.

Seriously, Rudolph is supposed to forget over the course of one song that all those reindeer who made him miserable are now all nice and buddy-buddy with him?

I don’t think so. And I’m not going to believe this song has a happy ending. Screw those other reindeer.
