Uma, Oprah. U-U, MeMe

Well, well, well.

The Good Countess MPM over at The Mental Pause Chronicles tagged me for an interesting tag today.

It is short.

But, (surprisingly) not too sweet.

What it is - is real, people. Because, although I'm nobility, I don my ginch one leg at a time, just like you. I am real. And I've read in a couple of places (mostly "O" and "Mark Burnett's Guide to Whoring Yourself on National Television") that it's good to be keepin' it real.

Rather than calling this a Meme, Mental Pause Mama has borrowed a phrase, and calls it a UU. Here be the rules:

The taggee has to ask their spouse/significant other/kids/dog/whatever to list three random things about them.

The dog's still asleep (and has on occasion been known to be quite dishonest. Really. Look at this face:)
Has "sociopath" written all over it...

so here is the information I got from the other three (the tag did not say I could not add my commentary, so I will take artistic liberties...):

The Baron says about BvonB
1. I want to be an actress (with such drama occurring daily, who wouldn't?)
2. I snort when I laugh (I'll have to shamefacedly admit to this one)
3. I have absolutely no patience (I don't know WTF he's talking about, but he took for-EVER to think up this third one. Oh, and no patience, hon? I've been with you for 25 years - have I been in a coma?)

Duke #1 about his Darling Muthah
1. I'm compassionate (Tru dat)
2. I'm adventurous (Which he neglected to say drives him nuts)
3. I'm cranky (only when I can't be adventurous) (Or between the hours of 5AM and 12 PM) (and only on days ending with the letter "y")

Duke #2 about his (2nd) Favorite Parent
1. I'm crabby in the morning (Note here "morning" is a relative term for one who rises at 11 AM)
2. I'm funny (You laugh, or you cry)
3. I'm technologically inept (But who figured out, huh? Huh? Bah-ring it, pipsqueak!)

I'm supposed to end this all with a rather large raspberry to the participants, so give me a moment to get the optimum volume of spittle in my mouth.



(Did any of them mention gracious or mature? No.)

I'm sorry, but I remember laughing with you at the Nordstrom Accord and I did not hear a single snort. Did you time them to conincide exactly with my wheezing?

What a smoothie you are!

Baroness von Bloggenschtern said...

Countess AG: Smooth. YES!! That is SO me!! I guess I was hiding my true snorty nature at the NA; I didn't want to scare you off - first time meeting and all. And usually it's when something catches me completely off guard. Like an Arby's ad with Riverdancing monkeys, for example. Or the "No Mas" trailer for Beverly Hills Chihuahua. Those really get the Arnold Ziffle impersonations going...

Mental P Mama said...

Well I am impressed. Very well done, and how absolutely thorough. Phthththththththththth.

Bwhahahahaha! Duke #2 was right. You are funny! Oh, and I got the two postcards today and I LOVE them! I love vintage looking postcards. What I find interesting is that the postcards were made in America. WTF? And the stamps are to die for! Our stamps are soooo boring compared to those! So, big hugs for sending them! I will feature them on iPost in the next week or so!

iPost said...

Oh, you are soooo clever. I just saw the i written in front of POSTCARD! You are a smart one. Don't let anyone else tell you your not! ;0)

Baroness von Bloggenschtern said...

Countess MPM: I raspberry in your general direction...

Countess iPost: Me so funny. Hardy hardy har. You so kind. Nice-y nice-y nice.

BTW - we're doing a fair amount of squiring around our summer exchange student, so I'll try to pick up kitch-cards whereever I'm at. Ya know, to give you a true taste of West Coast Canadiana!

Momma said...

Hey B von B! I did this little UU/MeMe over at my place on Sunday. I only asked the hubster, because I think I was afraid of what The Boy would say. :-)

And? I snort when I'm laughing at something reeeeeeally funny, too. You're in good company.

Peace - D

Baroness von Bloggenschtern said...

Countess D: Both you and I know that the snort-laughers are the merriest of the merry. It is a club of which I am proud to be a member. I also love how it embarrasses my men folk when we're at a movie. So fun.
