The future belongs to – meme

Posted by cotojo on December 12, 2007

The future belongs…

I’ve been tagged by Kim from Laketrees and Mary Ann from maryannaville to post 8 things about myself. 

Rumor has it that I was tagged by both in these immortal words:  Kim said: Colin @ Life…..for being so Colin and MaryAnn said: Colin because he’s is always Colin.

What makes you think that I am in deep water again huh?  Careful…you could be next 🙂
I stole the jpg from Mary Ann’s post because I’m a sneak hahaha. Mary Ann pinched it from Kim’s site so I thought I would carry on with the tradition 🙂

***Start Copying Here***

1. Link to your tagger and post these rules.
2. List EIGHT random facts about yourself.
3. Tag EIGHT people at the end of your post and list their names.
4. Let them know they’ve been tagged.

So here we go. Here are 8 things about me:

  1. I wake up when my eyes open, as for being alert….well that’s a tough one LOL
  2. I like to walk around old parts of towns and cities, it’s amazing to be able to step back into the past and see how the way we live has changed.
  3. I am fascinated with Bonsai trees and have a small collection which needs regular maintenance, but I find it very relaxing.
  4. I blog for fun, I don’t make any money from it as I never intended to.
  5. I love technology….you would never have guessed would you?
  6. I have a good selection of books which cover many subjects, gardening, cookery, biographies, fiction, non-fiction and I am an avid reader.
  7. I have a somewhat strange sense of humor which I also use in blog comments.  I am sure that one day it will get me into trouble LOL.
  8. I cook everyday and you can’t beat burning home cooked food, it has that wonderful charcoal smell to it 🙂

I will tag 8 people with this one, but it is entirely your choice whether you play along, I know that time is getting a bit tight with Christmas approaching.

***End Copy Here***

Hanna from Hanna’s Love,Poetry and Art who I recently met and she is a wonderful person with a zest for life, and has opened up a new frontier in the blogosphere.

Mariuca from Mariuca as she likes to tag me so I guess it’s payback time, but she’s a wonderful person and good friend.

Ann from A Nice Place In The Sun who has an awesome blog and it is always worth a visit to put a smile on your face.

Lisa from Life Is Just Around The Corner who is one of the first bloggers I had contact with and is a wonderful friend,  and without her input this blog would not exist.

Chris from The Dog Log who always visits my blogs and comments after each visit.  She has two blogs, one is the Dog Log and the other is Catnip Corner. If you love animals then you will love these blogs.

Eric from SpeedcatHollydale because he’s almost as mad as me, but hell he’s great fun too and a great buddy. Go check him out…hey, he even awarded me a Clean Pair of Underpants and few people would do that hahaha.

Jos from No DirectOn (NotNoDirection) who is a regular visitor to my blogs and always has a wonderful way of commenting.  Another great buddy to have and you just got to go and visit his blog.

Ev Nucci from My Life Is Murphy’s Law, as she has a great and sometimes wacky sense of humor and puts things into a whole new way.

That’s my eight victims, check them out….they are all wonderful bloggers and genuinely nice people.  I could add so many to this list as I have met so many lovely people with a diverse ramge of blogs which inspire others.

    Ann – No problem….it’s a somewhat hectic time of year for many of us, trying to squeeze everything in.
    It is a fun one to do and fairly simple 🙂

    Happy Holidays my friend,

  2. Thank you Colin, I’m sorry I just saw this on Technorati, plus I’ve been off line awhile so I must have missed it. Thank you so much for thinking of me, and I will get to this soon~ It looks like fun.

    Ann :))

    Maunie – I can sort it for you, if you want it posted then I’ll post it and tag same as friends award…what do you think?
    Take care my friend

  4. Colin this sounds like great fun…could you possibly link it to my site…I would really appreciate it…or am I messing things up and that’s not what you are asking us to do…you know me…I could mess up a free lunch…thanks my friend

  5. These responses are wonderful. I like old parts of town, and I too believe in burning food at home!

    Having killed a bonsai tree, I am moving on to amaryllis. I am hoping the relatively short-term commitment will work out!

    Happy Christmas to you!

    Mary Ann – E-I-E-I-O sounds great almost as good as my food cremation hahaha
    I’m sure we would have a ball cremating whatever is on offer 🙂
    Hugs my dear friend,

    Whether you’re an ex-chef or not an ex-chef, Colin, there is an open invitation for you and yours to join us anytime at the place where the zip code is E-I-E-I-O.

    We’ll all have a grand time cremating the eats. The offer is one that offers a lifelong guarantee.

  12. cotojo said

    Maunie – I always try to split memes and tags between those who are known and those who aren’t, I feel that it is a better system and helps the lesser known bloggers 🙂
    Have fun,

  14. cotojo said

    And this is what I’m talking about Colin. No matter what, you’re always an Ace, a Scholar, and a Pro. Yer ahight, Colin; I don’t care what anyone else sez. Yer one of my preferred home boyz. I’m sure that I’m not alone in this belief.

    ((((( Colin )))))

  24. cotojo said

    Jos – A double whammy all round then LOL
    I got ot twice, but 8 facts was enough having done a similar one previously 🙂
    Take care buddy and enjoy your tag 🙂

  25. Jos said

    Thanks for the tag, Colin who is so Colin. I already got this tag from Kim as well, and I am happy to see you got tagged twice as well — and that apparently doesn’t mean you have to tell 16 random facts about yourself. Take care & have fun, buddy 🙂
