The Meme of me-me-me-me-me

Brave Astronaut tagged me, and because my best pal loves him, I'm going to do this research for him. Even though I should be revising my resume.

Go back through your archives and post the links to your five favorite blog posts that you've written. But there is a catch:
Link 1 must be about family.
Link 2 must be about friends.
Link 3 must be about yourself, who you are... what you're all about.
Link 4 must be about something you love.
Link 5 can be about anything you choose.

Post your five links and then tag five other people. At least TWO of the people you tag must be newer acquaintances so that you get to know each other better.


Link 1 must be about family. One of the reasons Brave Astronaut tagged me is the depth of my archive. But this is a pretty recent post. I'm including it because it brought at least one lurker out. My grandmother can be pretty compelling.
Link 2 must be about friends. I chose this item mostly because of the nude pillow fighting.
Link 3 must be something about me. This here is one of my favorite ever posts. And I still think stitchers should take the quiz if they haven't!
Link 4 is about something you love. I don't wax poetic about the dude the way that Brave Astronaut bares his soul when he talks about his wife. Almost every post about the dude is a complaint about how stubborn he is or a brag about how smart he is. He deserves better, but he's against the public display of affection. You'll just have to settle for more about my family. (And finally, I share the photo of the finished project, above.)
Link 5 can be about anything you choose. There's some good stuff in my archive, and I invite newer readers to dip in. Hell, I invite old friends to dip back in. I mean how often does your stitching blog use the word autopeotomy? But I think I'm going with this. It's got popular culture, it has critique, it has stitching content, everything I'm about! (Be sure to follow the amazon link!)

Will people be mad if I tag? Will lurkers recoil in terror? (There are so many others I wanted to tag, but I hope this will get around to you eventually!)

  1. Lee
  2. Melissa
  3. Adrienne (whose extensive back catalog I should visit)
  4. Edgar, he's a newbie so this might be unfair, but I don't know him very well
  5. Miriam, I met her through nablopomo

I'll do mine in a bit but first a comment or two (1) your grandmother is very funny, (2) BNL rocks, (3) the Democratic party really isn't very liberal and (4) um, I don't know what I expected from Ms. Cheney, but that wasn't it. What was that story? Wow.

Also, your recent posts are about the age of my oldest ones. At least, the ones I claim.

Miss Anna,
I will do my best...it may be a day or so, but I will complete the task as requested. :)

2) I really like that you chose that first camp in Tulsa for this one. I think I've learned a lot about you since then without making silly "liberal" generalizations.
....and then there were two :(, in just a few weeks. :)

4) The dude is so cool and so sweet. You can share this with him. Even when you (not you, me) say or do the stupidest things - like let your camera batteries run down on the day he has spent his entire Saturday taking you to Lancaster County - he just smiles and nods and says what a "model guest" you are. Sweet. : )
Me encantan tu familia - at least the ones I've met - including the d-o-g.

I just wasn't sure that you would do it. But as I have said before, you were part of my inspiration on starting my blog, so I had to tag you.

Outstanding posts. Thanks
