Meme (tagged)

Jenn was kind enough to tag me with a really cool meme to distract me from my worries. thanks... Here goes.

My six word memoir:
Salty Punkt: scattered master of none
Punkt - German for point
and yes, I have a tattoo of the Morton's Salt Girl on my back.

So I am tagging Meg, Mrs. X, and Freyja (I cut my blog reading teeth on her blog - I think she is salty too:), G (who I give permission to "write" her memoir as an image), and of course Sara (hopefully something to occupy you while you couch surf)!!!

The meme originated over an idea that was prompted by the book written by Larry Smith & Rachel Fershleiser, Not Quite What I Was Planning: Six Word Memoirs by Writers Famous & Obscure. It's a compilation based on the story that Hemingway once bet ten dollars that he could sum up his life in six words. His words were, "For Sale: Baby Shoes, Never Worn."
1. Write your own six word memoir.
2. Post it to your blog including a visual illustration if you would like.
3. 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
4. Tag 5 more blogs with links
5. Don't forget to leave a comment in the tagged blogs with an invitation to play

I love it!

Enjoy the start of the Philly summer (also known as humid hell) this weekend... We are checking out flea markets & perhaps getting a motorcycle permit. And hanging out in a.c. somewhere!

Very cool and thanks for tagging me! I love stuff like this and it definitely helps me couch surf, I love that reference! It sounds way more fancy than bedrest, which I had named couch arrest because I thought it sounded better. Now I will always user your reference of couch surfing because it is the best phrase yet :-) So when my family asks me, so you're on bedrest? I will reply "no I couch surf," and I will always think of you!

You totally have me stumped on this. I have one, but I think its more depressing than I feel today.

So, you're Salty eh?
