Of Tags, Memes and Awards

Let me start with an explanation and an apology - I have two deadly nemeses that follow me quite relentlessly [actually I have loads but these two are the ones who were the culprits in this case]... they are laziness and forgetfulness.

So I have been meaning to do this meme/tag I don't know the right phrase that Jean Chia from A Great Pleasure, tagged me with and it took a lot longer than I had anticipated.

So here goes... with apologies for the delay but the deadline was 26th August and at least I didn't miss that. I don't like to miss deadlines

The meme is about completing at least seventeen out of the following twenty seven sentences. For every completed meme before 26th August, Idham will contribute RM127.00 on your behalf to Darul Izzah Orphanage.

1. A person is only as good as ...

2. Friendship is always ... better if you work at it

3. To love is to ...let go of rationality

4. Money makes me ...

5. I miss ... my cats.

6. My way of saying I care is by ... doing something thoughtful

7. I try to spread love and happiness by ...

8. Pick the flowers when ...ever you want them

9. To love someone is to ... accept them

10. Beauty is ... vital.

11. When I was thirteen, what I remember ...

12. When I was twenty one, I remember ...

13. I am most happy when ... I have no obligations or deadlines

14. Nothing makes me happier than ...

15. If I can change one thing, I will change ...

16. If smiles were banned, ... the world wouldn't have nice looking people

17. Wouldn't it be nice if we could ... fly

18. If you want to ask me to smile while taking my picture ... you just have to point the camera in my direction;)

19. Money is not everything but ... it sure does make life easier

20. The most touching moments I have experienced is ...

21. I smile when ... I want to

22. When I am happy, I ... am great company

23. If only I don't have to ... then ... I'll do anything

24. The best thing I did yesterday was ...

25. If I ever write a book, I will give it this title ...

26. One thing I must do before I die is ... live [how utterly corny;)]

27. Doing this meme, I feel like ... I should've done it earlier

The second meme was not that long ago and I have a valid reason for the delay, I wasn't in town. Mariuca awarded me the opportunity to dream about the things I'd do if I had a million dollars.
Hmm! Very interesting

If I had a $1 million - I'd travel the world over with my friends in style, invest some, give some to people who needed it.

And now a special thanks to Mariuca who has two beautiful blogs and is a really sweet and caring person herself. She gave me a Nice Matters award and it came at the righ t moment when I was pondering over how sometimes in life it's the not-so-nice people who get ahead and how when you're nice people simply take advantage of your goodness. So thanks Marzie I needed to remember that sometimes its nice to be nice just because that's who you are...and some people do appreciate that

According to the originator of the Nice Matters award it is intended for “those that are just nice people, good blog friends, and those that inspire good feelings and inspiration! Those that care about others, that are there to lend support, or those that are just a positive influence in our blogging world!”

Wouldn't it be nice to ... fly

Like the butterfly flies from flower to flower, or even like eagles high up in in the sky

Jean-Luc Picard said...

Random Magus said...

Jean-Luc Picard:

I understand about the meme procrastination. I am guilty of it too. Is there such a thing as beign all meme'd out? I think that is what I have. :o)~

Congrats on the word. You are truly one of the nicest people.

" I am most happy when ... I have no obligations or deadlines"

ME TOO!

Inside our hands, outside our hearts said...

I like the honesty on the memes. I shall come back and see other things that you write.

Ciao

Random Magus said...

Titania: Thank you... I am a horrible procrastinator and then the deadline gets near and adrenaline starts pumping and I complete the task.

Meleah: I think the combination of being lazy and not wanting to miss a deadline is one that makes me uber miserable

Inside our hands, outside our hearts:
Thank you

"If only I don't have to ... then ... I'll do anything"

I'm right there with ya, Random.

I'm so happy you're back, by the way. You were greatly missed!!

Random Magus said...

Hey Steph - so glad to see you're back as well!!!

I see we would do very similar things with a million dollars! Truthfully, money doesn't excite me. I will never be happy or sad from having or not having money. I would share it, that's for sure;) You definetly are nice and nowadays that counts as much as anything and is something that makes this world a better place. I often find myself in deep thought for weeks and sometimes months after reading certain things you write about. I want you to know that I think you are a beautifully spiritual person who emanates energy I can feel all the way to my little area of the world. I don't believe in this energy, I know it is real. It is higher than mere belief:)

Random Magus said...

Bobby: I'm not a very material person either, happy with what I have. So with a million dollars and friends and the world to see...wow I'd definitely do that. The investing would be so that I have some to give away.
Thank you so much for that wonderful, wonderful compliment. It means a lot!
