CP has a new policy on Memes

This picture has nothing to do with this post. This is my new dining set that I bought for a song at a consignment shop. It's vaguely Mission style so it fits the style of my house. There is a beautiful wood inlay design on the top that you can't see in this picture. It's also currently located in my office (above) because I don't yet have a functioning dining room. Do you like my paint job? (Please ignore the inner parts of the window frames, as I was unable to get to them to paint them, and I was lucky enough just to get these three windows open let alone take on the project to remove the frames for painting.)

Gentle Readers,

Many of us do Memes, which can be fun. Sometimes we tag each other to do the Memes. (And for the record, I've gone all German with the word Memes and have decided it should be Capitalized on accounta it's a noun, but only because it's a noun that screams to have something all German done to it.)

Most of you know I'm horrible at responding to tags. I have a hard time making the rounds to all my beloved stalkees, and sometimes I don't even know I've been tagged until weeks later and then I feel like an ass. (Mainly because I am an ass, but it just make it worse.)

And now I can't even get Technorati to work any more to tell me when someone mentions me in a blog post, so if anyone has suggestions on how I can be more timely alerted to such things I will be your second best friend. (On accounta you probably already have a first best friend.)

Since posting takes effort and I'm generally unwilling to make any on accounta I'm a lazy son-of-a-bitch, I now declare the following policy: If you tag me in a Meme, or if you just do a Meme and I happen to stop by your place, I too will do the Meme, but in your comments section rather than making my own post.

See here for my first installment.

Love and coasters,

What song did you have to sing? Looks lovely.

I approve of your policy making.

I didn't really tag you, just said I thought you would respond. I don't like tagging people because it seems like I am telling them what to blog about, and you know I am never ever bossy. At the same time, I really like reading and doing memes.

I lvoe the table and chairs as well!



(are you going to be in Chicago for the Holidays?)

Forget Technorati. Just sign up for a Google alert with your blog name. You'll get an e-mail whenever someone mentions your blog. And that's a lovely dining room set & paint job, btw.

Isn't that sort of like just handing a chain letter to someone else instead of sending out new ones? Which, come to think of it, isn't a bad idea.

LOVE the dining set, and the paint job.

you can't lose with that wall color. I painted my bedroom the same color with creamy white trim. It looks loverly.

Love the dining room set. I can't wait to buy one for my dining room.

those damn windows are the bane of your existence right now aren't they!

That dining set is GORGEOUS!! Love the simple detailing. The wall color is pretty too. And the hardwood floors are rockin'! Can't wait to see the finished project.

Too bad George isn't there to share in the joys of remodeling.

Why don't you just do what I do? Keep promising to do them until everyone eventually forgets?
