The Naked Truth


Liz tagged me to do a meme entitled:

THE TEN MOST FAVOURITE PARTS OF MY BODY

Finally, finally, I said no to a meme. Not because I can’t think of 10 favourite body parts (hell, I can think of plenty) but because I feel the sharing of that kind of information is just a little too personal.

Somebody has to draw a line and/or establish certain boundaries regarding memes – might as well be me.

(And where do memes originate anyway? Is there a MEME-MAKER out there? And does he/she get paid for this kind of work???)

So, sorry, Liz. No telling, no tagging.

The buck stops here. (As in, favourite body parts remain undisclosed - not “buck naked.”)



Hey, for those who have (somehow) taken this post seriously, I am JUST kidding. I like (some) memes!

Can you tell I’m in a good mood today? Perhaps a bit crazy, but good.

Crazy is always good..a little crazy gets you through life!!! A lot crazy gets you in a heap of trouble!! :)

I've always wondered where these meme start too...good question!!

There are some really good ones out there, the ones that make you think or reflect, but I'm with you...I'm not really keen on naming my body parts that I like..I've lost a few and I know first hand..."eh"...it's no big deal. It's what's inside me that's more important than what's holdin' it all together!! ;)

sherry:
Gotcha!
No such meme. Check the link. "Liz" is me!
(And I'm just a little crazy...)

You missed your chance to have a lot of fun here, Beth. You could have altered perceptions...

Brendan said...

Guess my last comment struck a nerve, huh? ;^)

In all seriousness, I don't imagine I would have enjoyed being tagged with this one. The narcissism of it is completely off-putting. The only way to handle it would be if I was in just the right warped mood to make a joke of it. Maybe something along the lines of, "I like my lips because they don't look like George Bush's, I like my skin because it doesn't look like Michael Jackson's, …"

I'm also with you in wondering how memes start. Wouldn't it be cool to have some program that could crawl the Web, following the tag links backward in time, to see if we could find the original source?

OK so no meme, but how about some sort of candid centerfold for the literary set. Perhaps naked Beth peeking behind a set of World Books or draped over the library book drop. I smell a calendar!

Mary said...

Ten would be tough! I have six fake teeth though so that gives me a boost in this area :-) Happy Friday!

Rebecca said...

I'd like to know what "meme" stands for.
re: Brendan's comment about narcissism. How about 10 favourite things about someone else's body?

Princess Pointful said...

I gotta agree with you on this one!
And you are much more assertive than I'd be... I'd just conveniently forget to do it...

Trish said...

It's good to be a little crazy...it keeps us sane.

Beth said...

Ditto to what Sherry said.."Crazy is always good!" Makes life so much more interesting, ya know?

I know I couldn't do this meme...I could never come up with
TEN body parts that I like!!

Eileen said...

Good one Beth, I fell for it too. I had to admitt being relieved that there was no such meme because there is no way I would want to do one where I had to name 10 good body parts. You are crazy today, a happy crazy. A funny crazy. That type of crazy if always good for the soul.
XOXO

Big Toe, Left Index Finger, Hair and Left Bollock.

Who is this Liz chick anyway?

Beth said...

TO ALL (WITH THE EXCEPTION OF EILEEN):

YOU'RE WONDERFUL BUT YOU MISSED THE FACT THIS SO-CALLED MEME CAME FROM www.elisabethstewart.blogspot.com (LIZ.) NO SUCH MEME EXISTS.

I NEED A PROOF READER - OR A MORE REFINED, OBVIOUS SENSE OF HUMOUR.

EITHER THAT OR I AM TRULY CRAZY.

EILEEN: THE FACT THAT YOU "GOT IT" - DOES THAT MAKE YOU CRAZY TOO?

Sherry said...

and you'll believe me when I tell you that I'm sitting here going "wha???" "what is she talking about..." and that's how naive I am!! ROFL!!!!

BUT BE PREPARED....you never know when I'll pay that one forward!!! :)

Sherry said...

And now, reading everyone else's comments, with the exception of Eileen!!! I see I am not the only one who fell for this...now, had I clicked on Liz's link (I sometimes do that and sometimes don't..given that you weren't doing the meme, I didn't check the link...had you "done" the meme I probably would have!)I would have sussed you out.

I think dear Beth the frigid cold has frozen your brain!! :) That plus the rackety furnace that goes burp in the night and those gas fumes you've been inhaling....stand outside and breathe deeply!!! LOL!!!!

oreneta said...

Well Beth, I am so glad that your dog has stopped farting. Everything has to be better if the dog is blowing stink everywhere...

La La said...

Too funny. You have one of those names that I always wanted: Elizabeth becomes Liz, Lizzy, Beth, Eliza, etc.

Found you on Eileen's site.

This meme-topic actually reminds me of a meme-topic I wanted to start recently.
--> TEN MOST FREQUENT REASONS I WANT TO KILL CERTAIN OTHER PEOPLE I WORK WITH, FROM DAY TO DAY!

You can see why [from a purely litigational standpoint, if no other] this would be a good meme to avoid elaborating on!
As it were!

Dorky Dad said...

You may not be serious, but I AM! Here are YOUR 10 favorite body parts, in order.

10. Ankle.
9. Left butt cheek.
8. Molars.
7. Middle finger on left hand.
6. Hair.
5. Right butt cheek.
4. Taste buds.
3. Nose.
2. Kneecap.
1. Eyes. (Well, DUH; of course eyes are No. 1!)

Shari said...

I fell for it too, until I saw your comment to Sherry. ;) I really should start clicking on links on the posts more oftem. I just don't like being taken away from the page and go back. That's why I use the "target=blank" in my links so that when a reader clicks on the link, it opens another window.

Body parts. Unh, elbows, knees, ears, mouth,....swear finger (oops)...
