Tuesday Meme

Junior tagged me for a meme this morning. Since I haven’t had much to blog about recently (I’ve been sleeping a lot lately), I’m glad to have something to think and write about.

This is called the “Three Names Meme.” This is taken from a poem written by T. S. Eliot called, “The Naming of Cats.” It’s in his book “Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats. According to Mr. Eliot, we all have three names (his poem is very funny – you should read it!). You must list the rules to play along with this meme, and they are:

1. You must link to Tara, who originated the meme.

2. You must tell your three names:

First of all, there's the name that the family use daily,
Such as Peter Augustus, Alonzo or James,
Such as Victor or Jonathan, George or Bill Bailey - -
All of them sensible everyday names.

But I tell you, a cat needs a name that's particular,
A name that's peculiar, and more dignified,
Else how can he keep up his tail perpendicular,
Or spread out his whiskers, or cherish his pride?

But above and beyond there's still one name left over,
And that is the name that you never will guess;
The name that no human research can discover - -
But THE CAT HIMSELF KNOWS, and will never confess.
...[that] Deep and inscrutable singular Name.
3. Then, tag three cats (and let them know they are tagged) to give us their three names.

So, without further adieu, here are my three names:

1. Spooky
2. Spooky THE Cat
3. She who happily snoozes beneath the ottoman and dreams of anoles and Greenies.

Now, I've got to tag three other cats. I choose...

1. Tiggie, FOC
2. Miss Kitty
3. Daisy

I like your meme! Those are good things to dream about!

Your beans are leaving AGAIN!!!! What in the world is up with that! I hope they finish whatever they are doing soon, so you can get them back full time!

Let me know when the party will start and I will teleport over!

Spooky, you have good names! Thanks for tagging me. I have been very, very bad about keeping up with memes, but I will try my hardest!
