A few days ago, Mary from Across the Pond, was kind enough to tag me to participate in the NAME GAME.
The name of the game is to:
List one fact that is somehow relevant to your life for each letter of your middle name. If you don't have a middle name, use the name you would have liked to have had. When you are tagged you need to write your own blog post containing your middle name game facts. At the end of your blog post you need to choose one person for each letter of your middle name to tag. Don't forget to leave them a comment telling them they're tagged, and to read your blog.
L-Laughter - I love a good laugh and joke, and my family are huge pranksters. I love the fact that laughter is contagious.
E-Education - I have always loved school and feel most comfortable in the classroom. This would probably explain the reason why I was always called 'teacher's pet' for most of my school years!
I-Impatient - This trait may not be one of my best qualities, so I blame it on my star sign - the always impatient Aquarius.
G-Gifts - I hate to brag but I am a fantastic gift-giver. It may also have something to do with the fact that I am also a shop-aholic!
H-Home - I am a home-body and love being surrounded by my family and friends, who I consider my extended family.
A-Animal Activist - I have always felt very strongly about animal rights, and my parents raised me with the belief that we as humans need to be the eyes and ears of animals who cannot speak for themselves. Some of the groups I belong to are Animal Aid, SPCA, and PETA.
N-Nature - Looking after the planet and protecting Mother Earth are two things my parents also instilled in me. Ohhh, the perks of having hippies for parents!
N- Nostalgic - I love anything from the past...if it's vintage, I want it!
My first middle name, Leigh, means Meadow in Ireland and Ann is a name that has been passed down from generation to generation in our family on both sides. If my parents hadn't settled on Leigh Ann, it would have been 'Blythe', after my mum's favourite second grade teacher, Miss Blythe, an animal rights activist herself who was a single woman and owned her own farm. She was a woman who was ahead of her time, and a modern day feminist.
Since I have 8 letters in my name, I have tagged 8 fellow bloggers:
Rosemary at Rosespetitmaison
Gillian at Indigo Blue
Sherry at Q's Corner
Susie Q at Rabbit Run Cottage
Pam at Art and Soul
Mandy at Pearl Maple
Karen at Jewel Box Chronicles
Nita at Red Tin Heart
Thanks again Mary for tagging me!
