Tired! And a Meme!

I am very tired because I have been getting very little sleep and had a very busy weekend - so busy that I still have no pictures of the deck to post! They will appear eventually...suffice it to say we were too busy enjoying sitting out on it with our friends and family to bother taking any pictures of it!

Sunday night I stayed up way too late reading, and then couldn't sleep. Then last night DH and I were bored with what was on TV and we watched the movie "Fried Green Tomatoes," which we'd never seen. Great movie, but since we didn't start watching it until 10 p.m. we were up late. And yes, DH even stayed awake for the whole movie! (Those who know him will be wondering that).

And then at 3:50 a.m. Diva woke me up by jumping off the bed.

You have to understand that Diva sleeps like a large brown boulder in the middle of the bed and does not move for any reason, all night long, under normal circumstances. If Diva jumps off the bed in the middle of the night, it is not a good thing. It means Something is Wrong.

So I went downstairs and let her out and she wandered out in the yard for awhile and came back in and slept the rest of the night. But this morning she hacked up grass and seems to have the runs a bit, so obviously something is not right. I think the hot weather affects her badly. So we'll need to resort to the white rice and boiled chicken bit for a day or so until she gets back to normal.

So, that is the extent of my news today. But luckily, thanks to my friend "Angela," I have a meme for you, which I am shamelessly using to pad this post!

This came in an e-mail and it is called "SCATTEGORIES"...it's harder than it looks! Use the first letter of your name to answer each of the following...They have to be real places, names, things...nothing made up!

Try to use different answers if the person in front of you had the same 1st initial. You CAN'T use your name for the boy/girl name question.

YOUR NAME: Mauigirl

Famous Artist/Band/Musician: Monet/Merseybeats/Marilyn Manson (doesn't have to be someone you like!)

TV Show: Malcolm in the Middle

City: Melbourne

Boy's Name: Mitchell

Girl's Name: Mary

Alcoholic drink: Manhattan

Occupation: Musician

Something You Wear: Mukluks (yes, it was harder than it seemed. None of L.L. Bean's or Lands End's categories had anything beginning with "M" so I had to resort to Eskimo wear).

Celebrity: Maria Muldaur (she could also be the musician)

Food: Mangoes

Reason for Being Late: Making my mutt come in from the yard (I got as many m's in there as I could. I usually have multiple reasons to be late, as it's one of my specialties. Traffic, accident on road, couldn't find my keys before I left, had nothing to wear, etc. When the real reason is I just never allow enough time!)

Something You Shout: Murder!

So there you go. I won't tag anyone with the meme, but if anyone is desperate for some material for their next post, you are welcome to use it!

I hope Diva's feeling better now. Woofs from Harvey.

I preferred the book to the film of Fried Green Tomatoes. I loved the book.

I have this vague feeling I read the book years ago and liked it but it is so long ago I am not remembering it. Perhaps I am confusing it with something else. I should read it again and remind myself. I usually do like books better than their movies as a rule.

Diva is doing well now, thanks for the woofs!

For some reason haven't been able to get in to comment the last couple of days? Originally I was going to say I hope you're more rested now...after 3 days I hope you are!!! Also hoping Diva is better by now. You did well with your scattergories.

I've been enjoying your blog, well this one, I still have the other two to check out...then I want to check out your Mom's blog, then a couple of links on your sidebar... I can already tell this blog is going to get me into trouble. I lurk because I can never think of anything good to say. Example--you have this interesting blog and all I can think of right now is that I like the name of your cat, Baxter!
