OK - I give in!

A hypocrite. Somebody who pretends to have admirable principles, beliefs, or feelings but behaves otherwise.
I wrote an article 3 or so posts down from here entitled BBOB, bemoaning the decline in original thinking on our blogs, and deploring the pack mentality of some of our colleagues. My view was not received particularly well, and for that I apologise.
Indeed , in spite of my article - or maybe because of my article, I was tagged again! Wasn't I Toadie and Jadey?
So to prove that I am flexible in my opinions, and to appease some of my critics, I have decided to play along with the challenge I was proffered. Here goes!
1. You have to post these rules before you give the facts.
2. Players, you must list one fact that is somehow relevant to your life for each letter of their middle name. If you don’t have a middle name, use the middle name you would have liked to have had.
.3. When you are tagged you need to write your own blog-post containing your own middle name game facts.

D - DISCONTENTED. Most people think I have everything I want. A fantastic family, a lovely home and a great bunch of friends. But when I close my door it is very quiet . Some thing is missing.

E - EMPATHETIC. I have always had the ability to identify with, and understand other peoples feelings or difficulties. This has at times been like a weight around my neck.

N- NONCONFORMIST. I feel I have little or nothing in common with my peers. My generation bore me, so I refuse to conform the image that is expected of me.

I - IMPASSIONED. My post BBOB was the perfect example. If I believe in something, I have no problem with shouting it from the roof tops.

S - SYNERGETIC. I have always felt that the whole me is greater than the sum of the parts. What you see is not necessarily what you get. There is more to me than meets the eye! Be warned!
At this point I am required to foist this task onto 5 other people. But everyone who might be interested in partaking has already done so. So I am not going to. As I said, I'm a nonconformist!


  1. Oh I agree with the first comment......!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. And I agree with the last comment. I love breaking 'chain letters' etc.

  3. There is a difference though to sticking to your principles and or subjecting yourself the the whims of another lol.

    By continuing in this task did you feel better after completing it or sad because you gave way. :o)

    To thy own self be true.

    Okay okay I will stop. I just had to rib ya a bit.

  4. Well, this looks interesting! Mind if I add my middle name?

    J -- Justice-ruled. I've always looked at things from a balanced point of view. Perhaps it is my birth sign's influence. Whatever it is, it's gotta be fair.

    E -- I want to use Empathetic, but I don't want to steal it from you, Keith. So...
    Endearing. Most people like me. I grow on them.

    A -- Amiable. Goes along with endearing. I'm not hard to get along with, as long as you understand I'm always right. :-)

    N -- Normal. Umm... what IS that, anyway? I had too many N choices. Nocturnal, nightowl, etc., and I couldn't decide.

    I'm glad my middle name is short.
    BTW, I thought the BBOB blog was very good.

    Love your blog. ~Gloria/Arabella

  5. Gloria, good to see you here!

    At the risk of turning this into a mutual appreciation society, may I say how much I enjoy your blog!

  6. Well, well, well...What can I say?
    You went belly up on us!


    Keith, please come visit my photo gallery that I began on Saturday. You have an eye for this sort of thing...

  7. D - done
    E- enough
    N - notes
    I -involving
    S - surveys!

  8. AAAAAHHHHH! I just refused William's tag. I am holding strong Keith.

    Morgy wept.
