Warning: Some men might want to skip over this post and go straight to the Buck video in the previous post.


Little Miss Sew ‘N Sew gets all the credit for this great meme. She started the ball rolling when she posted a beautiful video of the song Hummingbird by Seals and Crofts. The song makes her cry, but in a good way. It so nice to hear that song. I’d nearly forgotten about it!

For me it’s House At Pooh Corner by Loggins & Messina. I think of it as my “crying song” because the second I hear “…But today I have wandered much further than I should, and I can’t seem to find my way back to the wood…” I start to tear up. 

Here’s House At Pooh Corner with some illustrations by “Mr. Shepard” (for A.A.Milne fans), aka E. H. Shepard for those unfamiliar with the artist.

Meme Rules and tags after the jump.

Rules forInsight To My Heart”:

Post the song that just gets to you every time you hear it.

I’m tagging five people, but if you’re not on the list and want to play along please do!

Everything You Need To Know

Moonbeam McQueen, back from her blog hiatus, has tagged me for a meme called Everything you need to know about me in a six-word title and one illustration. The rules are as follows:

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

  • Link to the person who tagged you in your post and to this original post if possible, so we can track it as it travels across the blogsphere.
  • Tag five more blogs with links.
  • Don’t forget to leave a comment in the tagged blogs with an invitation to play.
  • Honored as I am to be tagged, I couldn’t come up with a six-word defense of myself . So I asked Buck to do this meme for me, which proved to be a mistake. Here’s his six word memoir:

    Buck smoking

    “Memes are an Internet chain letter.”


    I’m not tagging anyone for this meme, but if I did tag anyone it would be Little Miss, Joan Harvest, Dragonfly, and Buck two more times because he unwittingly gave me his entries already:

    “I don’t understand this meme shit.”

    “Aren’t chain letters against the law?”

    And on he went, using his fingers to meter out his sentences until I ended it with, “You are L7 so stop talking.”

    Thanks, MB, I had fun with this. Welcome back!

    Well, today I found out the holidays have ended

    and I certainly hope I’m happy because all my clothes are too tight and  uncomfortable and it’s nobody’s fault but my own. Last September I thought to myself, “Well, the holidays are nearly upon us so I might as well not even try to curb my eating desires and eat everything I can think of, especially items containing sugar and/or cream. And while I’m eating sugar and cream, I’ll also put a special focus on eating all foods that are white in color, such as potatoes and rice, bread and other things containing flour. Then I’ll reevaluate when the holiday season ends.”

    It ended today, so I’m reevaluating. This might take me a few days to form any real conclusions about what must be done to make my clothes fit again.

    But in the meanwhile I’d like to start a Refrigerator Meme. The requirements are: Take a photo of the contents of your refrigerator and post it on your blog.

    Please don’t feel that you have to explain each item because — in the case of my own fridge, anyway — a picture tells a thousand words. My refrigerator photo tells why my clothes are hurting me and leaving marks:

    I only posted the two top shelves because they came out best. The bottom shelves came out too dark, but there’s a 13-pound roasted turkey down there in the shadows, along with two bags of apples, a bag of lettuce, and a zucchini. I think there’s also some moldy mushrooms in a bag, but I’m afraid to look too closely.

    I’m tagging the following 10 bloggers from my Blogroll. If I didn’t tag you it’s because I know your blog isn’t really suited to this (Beth at Avenue Z, for instance; Slice of Life, I didn’t tag you because you’ve been tagged hundreds of times and I thought I’d spare you, as a gift of sorts.). Some people may feel this meme is too much of an intrusion into private life, and if this is the case please DO NOT feel obligated to participate! I won’t tell people your fridge was loaded with nothing but booze, and I won’t be offended at all, so please don’t be offended that I tagged you.

    This is meant in the spirit of silly fun so if you want to do this, cool. If not, eh. It’s no big whoop. And if I didn’t tag you and you want to participate PLEASE DO! Let me know so I can hop on over and check it out.
