Friday Fun: Tag You're It!


Friday Fun is Diva Marketing's virtual happy hour from cosmos to Jack to lemonade. A waiting for the weekend 'playground' time to be sophisticated-silly. Or sometimes just plain silly.

It's been a crazed week with minimum access to the old internet and more airports than I would like to see in the course of days. More on the Healthcare Summit (very well received) and the DC Bloggers Wonk (a blast!) later .. promise.

Children_playing_tag_1Today is Friday Fun so let's play a little virtual "tag" or as bloggers like to call it a meme.  These silly, fun games serve a larger purpose in the virtual world. They help build community and give us an excuse to get to know each other a bit better.

This week I was 'memed' twice .. by  Shel Israel, Naked Conversations,  and Nedra Weinreich, Spare Change, on the latest to make the rounds. This go round the game is What 5 Things You Don't Know About Me. Here goes .. a few silly things about moi.

Update Jan 9 -07: Thanks Chris Brown, Branding & Marketing, for the tag on this one too. Guess this game keeps going round.

1. I love musical comedies, Doris Day movies and yes, Christmas songs .. anyone for "Chestnuts roasting on an open fire ... ?"

2. It took me almost a week to decide to keep little Maxie, who was the best gift from a client I ever received; now I don't know what I'd do without him .. anyone for "a little puppy love?"

3. Grocery shopping is a fun activity .. I'll go extra miles to find a cool store. Trader Joe's opening in Atlanta was cause for celebration .. anyone for "$3 buck chuck wine" (due to distribution regulations (read: politics an extra buck is added to Atlanta's cheap wine?"

4. I toured the Greek Isles for free on a windjammer cruise .. anyone for "a little Retsina?"

5. Mystery and espionage novels are my traveling buddies .. anyone for "a Robert Parker - Spencer novel?"

Tag you are it! For Shel - Jane Genova, Carol Krishner, Wayne Hurlbet, Paul Chaney, Marianne Richmond and for Nedra - Sonya Neblett, Rajesh, Tish Grier, Peggy Payne, Fard Johmar

Update: Thanks for the tag Miss Moxie! And here's what you may not know about Max <wink>

Astrology_15 business astrology for fun -
from The Astro Divas Paula Dare & Donna Page


Today Mercury squares Uranus. Your mind may become very scattered. You may find yourself nervous or anxious. This isn’t a good day for making any major business decisions or talking with important clients. You will likely decide to act on impulse then change your mind. Many ideas may pop into your head and then pop out just as quickly. Jot all the ideas down. Sort through your list next week and implement the best ideas at the New Moon Wed. 12/20.

The Sun enters the ruling sign of business – Capricorn – as we begin the first day of winter at the Winter Solstice Thurs. 12/21. This is good for any restructuring you may need to do.

Trader Joes is one of my favorite stores, but 2 Buck Chuck is a wine I stay away from. Gives me a headache! Guess I'm a bit of wine snob too, though, if the truth be told. Thanks for sharing. I've been memed by Paul, so I better get to it.

Thanks for sharing, Toby! "Singin' in the Rain" is one of my very favorite movies - how does that rank in your musical comedy picks? And how did you manage to cruise the Greek Isles for free? We need to know.

I'm glad you tagged Carol, Marianne and Fard - they were all on my shortlist too. I'll have to check out the others on your list as well.

Happy Hanukkah!

Thanks Toby,

I have followed the theme on my blog and tagged a few! :)

Hi Toby,
I've been watching with delight as this meme has spread. I've learned a lot about a number of people on my feed list.

Thanks for the tag so that I could join in on the fun.

Don't you just love this meme? It's the bloggers dream; transparency! I love it!

Trader Joe's is one of my favorites too. Great booze selection and coffees and all kinds of yummy foods... I love the place.

Thank you for sharing and being a part of the fun- all of you.

Thanks for playing and commenting! I love that this meme is "playing" in different "blog villages like real estate via Paul Chaney" and other countries - India via Rajesh.

and Happy Hanukkha :-)

I'm with you 100% on grocery shopping (and eating what I by, hence my expanding wasteline) and Trader Joe's.

Posted by: Lewis Green on Dec 18, 2006 11:09:59 AM

Hey! I missed Friday but thanks for including me. I promise I'll play by the rules next time!

By the way, I agree about Trader Joe's. It is a real treat.

Posted by: Sonya Neblett on Dec 18, 2006 9:48:22 PM

Tagged! My 5 things are posted--and a few more taggees. Thanks for asking. I'm also fond of musicals; I'd like to tapdance in one.
