Out of four siblings, I'm the only one with a middle name. My mom and dad said it was because I'm the eldest. They wanted me to learn responsibility by having two names. I'm not sure how my two names helped, but yeah...
Jen, my new Flickr and blog buddy, tagged me a few days ago with these instructions:
You must post the rules before you give your answers.
You must list one fact about yourself for each letter of your middle name.
Each fact must begin with that letter.
If you don't have a middle name, just use your maiden name.
After you've been tagged, you need to up-date your blog with your middle name and answers.
At the end of your post, you need to tag one person. (Be sure to leave them a comment telling them they've been tagged and need to read your blog for details).
Well, it's not a very long middle name, so don't worry... 😉 Here you go -
A - rtsy : Or at least, I love all forms of art! It bugs me when I'm not creating something (like, right now). I enjoy painting, drawing, making things, designing, taking photos... And yeah, I even love dance, music, the performing arts, etc.
N - octurnal: Well, just about. I do find myself most productive at night. Although ever since I became a mum, I had to re-adjust my body clock. But, I can't help it. I still like night times. And, in spite my better judgment, I still often stay up late.
N - eurotic: Terribly so. I know that this might be a strange admission from someone with a Masters' degree in Psychology. But then, I should know, right? 😉 And I'm not just being funny. I really have some neuroses that only my husband knows about.
So, there you go. Phew. That was tougher than I thought. Not a lot of N adjectives that I liked. My husband suggested 'nubile' - but I thought that wasn't appropriate. Heh.
What about you? What's your middle name? Can you describe yourself using the letters in your name?
Since I often feel weird tagging folks, I thought I'll make this an open tag. So, if you feel like taking part in this meme, then you're tagged. 😉 Let me know if you give it a go!
