I'll be the first to admit that it doesn't take much to confuse me, but I got this meme from Kristen and then the next day, I got this meme from Kristen. Let me just say, my confusion had me running all over the internet! Now, I have to ask--did you girls get together and say, "let's gang up on Laurie and see how much it will take to get her worked up into a frenzy"? Well, I'll tell you now, it doesn't take much! I have had to go back and check both of your blogs numerous times to make sure you both sent me this meme! (You know... was it this Kristen or the other Kristen who sent me this meme? And do both of them spell their name the same way?) And yep, I think I got it right. Kristen at Something About Nothing and Kristen at Kristen's Creations honored me with this meme. And as if that wasn't confusing enough, I didn't even know what a meme was! So off to the dictionary to learn something new.

meme (pronounced /miːm/)[1] consists of any idea or behavior that can pass from one person to another by learning or imitation. Examples include thoughts, ideas, theories, gestures, practices, fashions, habits, songs, and dances. Memes propagate themselves and can move through the cultural sociosphere in a manner similar to the contagious behavior of a virus.

Okay, now back to the two Kristen's blogs (again!) to make sure I had that part correct (yep, they both gave me this meme).

Then, as I was preparing this posting, I got into a frenzy about the meaning of the word "frenzy"! You know ... am I using this word correctly; does it really describe the way I'm feeling? So, back to the dictionary, where I found that it is a perfect description of the way I'm feeling:

n. pl. fren·zies
1. A state of violent mental agitation or wild excitement.
2. Temporary madness or delirium.
3. A mania; a craze.
tr.v. fren·zied, fren·zy·ing, fren·zies
To drive into a frenzy.

Do you see that? "A state of violent mental agitation". That's me right now. Yeah, yeah, I know, I still haven't done the meme. Well, I've had a few distractions here (like violent mental agitation)!

Okay, let me go check Kristen's blog and Kristen's blog one more time to make sure. I'll be right back. Yep, they both sent me this meme and got me into this agitated state

NOW they want me to read something! I am not kidding, these two have me in an agitated mental state, and now they want me to read something! Can you read anything when you are in a frenzy? Well, I'll give it a try. Oh My Gosh! They want me to go to a specific line on a specific page in the book that is closest to me! My frenzy is getting out of control now!

The book that I have on my desk is George Hamilton's "Don't Mind if I Do". Those who read my blog regularly know that George and I are big buddies! So, of course, I am reading my bud's book! If you missed it and want to read about mine and George's close relationship, go here:

To prove our close relationship, here is the picture of me with my buddy, George, which I did not get in time for my posting about him:

Here's another picture of my buddy George. I'm the one in the background with stars in my eyes! After seeing this look on my face, can you believe I was able to stand there with his arm around me for a picture? After I left the theater, my husband did have to hold me up-my knees were weak! Okay, that was another frenzy. I may be the queen of frenzies!

Sorry, I know I still haven't done the meme. I'm supposed to be going to page 56, and tell you what it says on line 5 and 2 to 3 lines following.

"...had always intrigued him to go to Rollins College, a country club school with the best tennis team in the nation. Bill's roommate was Tony Perkins, the preppy son of the noted Broadway actor Osgood Perkins."

Whew! I did it! I am so relieved that I struggled through this frenzy without being put into a straight jacket! Thanks Kristen and Kristen! Your little plan worked! Okay, everybody go over to Kristen's at Kristen's Creations and Kristen's at Something About Nothing, and let's see if we can get them into a frenzy! laurie
