Friday 55& Da Count In Meme Form

For ages I have done Friday 55 (compose a story in 55 words). Often I make it relate to Da Count, (count blessings not bemoan their absence). Some have dubbed me Queen of the Twisted Meme. This week I will attempt the perfect union of all three. Gees, I sure hope I don't sprain something!*


CraverVII shared rules.

  • Write about 5 specific ways blogging has affected you, either positively or negatively.
  • Link back to the person who tagged you.
  • Link back to the parent post, so she can track the meme.
  • Tag a few friends or five, or none at all.
  • Post these rules-- or just have fun breaking them.*

(Lime bellies up to the keyboard, cracks her knuckles, takes a deep breath, and prepares to dazzle the crowd with a previously unseen union of meme, Friday 55, and Da Count. Should she fail readers will click to the next blog within seconds. Success will etch her name in blog history. The crowd falls silent...)*
  • I have a creative outlet that doesn't cost me a dime.
  • I've gotten to connect with fascinating people all over the world.
  • Some of those people have become dear friends even across distance.
  • I've gained a network of support and inspiration I never imagined.
  • I noticed blogging expands my heart, my mind, and my butt.*



*Notice each section has 55 words.
The crowd goes wild...

lime said...

doo dah, thanks ma'am. avagoodone yerself

dianeca, my ability to count is sometimes less than noteworthy. ask my husband when he balances the checkbook.

barman said...

Just when I think I know just how super creative you are you take it up a notch...

The judges say
6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6

Wow, it's a first time ever. We have a perfect score.

I love your creativity, your heart, your mind and... well we won't go there. LOL

Craver Vii said...

Of course the crowd goes wild. Your creativity has already etched your name in blog history. Thanks for playing, Lime.

Well done, Well done. I have to admit it, I was skeptical as you outlined the rules. But then you stepped up and hit it out of the park. And made it look effortless. That is the sign of a pro.

Have a great day!

lecram said...

And she doesn't... she doesn't... SHE DOESSSSS! ::roar of a rapturous crowd::

Breazy said...

Very good Queen Lime!

Missy said...

I'm flabbergasted, in awe, and inspired :)

Great job there kiddo! You do have a great talent for all things fun and creative!

lime said...

barmn, as long as the judges don't catch me tripping over my own shoelaces....

craver, well shucks, i am blushing now.

stalker, *bows humbly, thanks

lecram, don't applaud, just throw money (that was one of my mom's favorite lines)

breazy, thanks, have a great weekend yourself

lime said...

missy, my lucky day, thanks

Suldog said...

Ah! Another reason to love you: You're as obsessive/compulsive as I am. Good job!

Blither said...

blither, i like tickling people!

andyt, ciara, i walk to the edge of the stage to greet the adoring crowd, as i bow and lean over i tumble headlong into the crowd. ever graceful....

s, maybe i'll add plate spinning next week.

Akelamalu said...

Oh sweet! You're good honey!

furiousBall said...

i'm convinced that butt expansion is what Andrew Jackson et all meant by manifest destiny

Kathryn said...

Clap, clap, clap!!! Well done!!!!

And thanks for the great comment on my house post. :)

RennyBA said...

You said that right: friends even across distance - even to Vikings in Norway!

Wishing you a lovely end to your week :-)

(M)ary said...

how lovely and creative!!

thanks for pointing out the 55 words in each section. i always forget to count on da count/friday 55

Rob said...

You are indeed The Queen, peerless, a true CHAMPION! In case you ever feel threatened by anyone trying to take over your exalted throne, we can take care of that for you. No, really; we're NOT that busy these days! Not busy at all...

Jeff Gillooly, Shawn Eckhardt, Shane Stant [Muscle for Hire]

P.S. I generally don't throw money unless there's a stripper pole, a G-string, and stiletto heels involved --although in YOUR case I might make an exception! (Ever consider blogging in a G-string and stilettos? Just sayin'...) ;-)

lime said...

akelamelu, why thank you1

furiousball, that is entirely possible!

kathryn, thanks, and you're welcome...hugs

renny, yes, my friend, even vikings in norway :)

mary, i am a bit crazed to do this i think

rob, thanks for the offer of protection, a queen needs such loyal subjects. as for the g-string...my motto is floss yer teeth, not yer butt...naked blogging is another matter entirely

~Tim said...

I love to watch a master at work. [or a mistress to for that matter....]

ciara said...

i just realize i used the wrong word in my comment! *cease not seize LOL

KFarmer said...

In the words of Gomer Pyle, "doggone how you do that!"

Well done as usual dove. You are indeed The Queen :)

PS: Did Lady D wear her clothes inside out? :)

Palm Springs Savant said...

Well done Lime, I liked this one. Oh I can relate: "I noticed blogging expands my heart, my mind, and my butt."

...the crowd goes wild...

Fred said...

Fred, standing up and wildly cheering, shouts out BRAVO!!

lime said...

tim, "mistress lime" i think i like the sound of that ;)

ciara, not to worry, dearie. the spirit was not lost

kfarmer, i am giggling at gomer. and yes lady d went inside out and made it for about 45 seconds before she got a warning and righted herself.

savant, ah, so you have been expanded in many ways as well, have you? hehehe

fred, smiles and waves from the stage, tank you, thank you

L.L. Barkat said...

Oh! Brief, creative, hilarious. Three in one. I love it. (And, on the final observation, let's just say that since I curbed my blogging addiction, we've seen a reduction in the b... department. :)

snowelf said...

Lime, you again, have rocked the blogosphere. :) I think we should all shake our big ol' booties in a dance in your honor. hehe!!

--snow

(And why isn't Diana considering the legal profession...I think she'd make a damn good lawyer!!)

NYD said...

The judges have asked for a blood test to find out if you were on steroids when you wrote that. No mere mortal could have combined three themes and walked away from it unscathed.

Cheesy said...

I so relate to the fat blogger bum...

Moosekahl said...

All very good reasons to keep on blogging, but that last one isn't true...your butt looks just fine silly girl!

Jay said...

Oh god not the butt!!

Cosima said...

A little padding is absolutely required for successful blogging :D

BTExpress said...

I checked with the Guinness people and this is a record! Way to go girl!

lime said...

ll barkat, glad to know that even though the heart and mind may stay stretched the butt can return to its former glory

snowelf, ((((_Y_)) ((_Y_))) that's me shaking my expanding bootie

nyd, perhaps i am no mere mortal, eh? ;)

cheesy, i think many of us do.

moose, oh not to worry, i am content with the size of my rump

jay, oh yes!

cosima, the padding helps us endure the long sits at a keyboard

btexcpress, woohoo! you're invited to the ceremony inducting me into their records.

jillie said...

Just a few more of the reasons that you have such a large array of fans that love you!!!

Deep sigh...

Jocelyn said...

You never mis-step, luv.

citizen of the world said...

Perfectly said.
