My second meme...and this ones a toughy

So Deb at Postcards from the Edge tagged me for this meme. I've seen it around the blogosphere in the last couple weeks and am always impressed at what people come up with.

The meme originated over an idea that was prompted by the book written by Larry Smith & Rachel Fershleiser, Not Quite What I Was Planning: Six Word Memoirs by Writers Famous & Obscure. It’s a compilation based on the story that Hemingway once bet ten dollars that he could sum up his life in six words. His words were, “For Sale: Baby Shoes, Never Worn.”

1. Write your own six word memoir.

2. Post it to your blog including a visual illustration if you would like.

3. Link to the person who tagged you in your post and to this original post http://herebaby.blogspot.com/2008/06/six-word-memior.html if possible so we can track it as it travels across the blogsphere

4. Tag 5 more blogs with links

5. Don’t forget to leave a comment in the tagged blogs with an invitation to play

So, my six words: Surrounded by people, yet often alone.

And that is why I'm getting therapy.

Alrighty then, now to tag five people. I think I'm going to tag some of my new Philly Mom blogger friends. Hope you ladies don't mind. I did look to see if you have done this meme already, and it doesn't look like you have.

  1. This would have been the perfect opportunity to try out the strike overs - Did it not work - I suck at teaching dont I?

  2. I'm going to give it my best shot. I'll let you know when it is up! Thanks for the tag.

  3. sounds good. I'll have to think about that one for a day or two.

    Have a good evening. My dog is barking her head off and driving me nuts. It's 11 PM and I just want to go to bed. She must see something outside in the field. Ugggh!

    Good night!

  4. so, that's where the meme is at the moment - I did mine about a week or so ago! Difficult isn't it!!?

  5. By the way - i meglected to tell you. I am impressed by your memoir. It really is a good one. This little sucker was hard for me.

  6. thanks... I'm thinking... and counting words on my fingers!

  7. Oh my - this one requires thought - not sure if any thought is left in my head so I think I'll save till Morning when I'm well rested!
    Thanks for the tag!

  8. Mine is up - it took a while, but it sums it up well for today!
