It seems I have a couple of lurkers out there. Who knew? Not me. I lurk on blogs myself, so it shouldn't have been a big surprise.

One of these lurkers e-mailed me a meme. I got nothin' else to say, so I figured I do this meme. Here goes.

Does your mate annoy you without realizing it? How do you bring it to his attention?

Hoo Boy! Does he ever! I usually hit him over the head with a skillet. I don't cook much, so this is a good use for the skillet.

What was your first impression upon meeting your mate? Has that impression changed?

The first time I ever saw Niks, he was sitting at his desk in his office, wearing a red leather cap. That Niks. This was a protest about the air conditioning blowing on his head. He's been bald since he was in his early twenties, so he is sensitive to air blowing on his head. I thought he was a NUT. Now, I realize that he is a cross between a bird and a nut. A sweet bird and a nutty nut.

Does your mate do anything that embarrasses you? What?

You're kidding. Right? Of course he does. That's what husbands do. What? I don't know where to start. I'll just list one: he undoes his pants when he eats to allow for the expanding belly. No matter where he is. That guy.

Would you ever go to an all-nude beach?

What? I thought this was all about my mate! Hrumpf. Okay. Sure. I'd go to an all-nude beach. Would I strip myself? You know what? Yes, I would. When I was young and had a nice body, the answer would have been "no." Now I'm old, and if the other nudes were not people I would see again, I would be okay with being naked. But I wouldn't do it in front of folks that I know.

Yeah, there were more questions in the meme than that. But I ain't writin' no more.

Gee, Sis, nude? Keep it east of the Mississippi, please.

(Unless, of course, you are still the svelte thing you used to be when we played mud pies.)

Jamie Dawn said...

No nude beaches or nudist resorts for me. I'd be mortified!!

Niks need elastic waistbands.

You always speak lovingly about your hubby. He may annoy you at times, but it is clear that you love that fella.

YAY, my TLP fix can finally be met another way, I don't have to go read and reread what you've said at Waking Ambrose, which is fun, don't get me wrong, but I MISSED this!
OK, now that we have THAT out of the way, That niks sounds like he is perfect for you!

Doug said...

Does the skillet work?

Niks must be more sensitive than average.

I used to have a mate:

1) YES
3) All The Time
4) no with my mate!

Hey! Very Nice! Check out this website I found where you can make extra cash.
It's not available everywhere, so go to the site and put
in your zipcode to see if you can find something. I found something and make
and extra $900 a month!

Funny meme TLP. That Niks must be quite a pothead by now. Or is it skillethead?

Libby said...

funny, tlp!!

That's true. When I travelled through Greece, I stripped down without second thought to modesty on a beach of hundreds of people. But I never would have stripped in front of in anonymity.

I think lurkers might be blogging naked.

I love,love,love that you're writing again. You are one of the few that can really make me laugh when I'm sitting in front of the 'puter, wondering whether I should bash my head into the wall or get up and take a walk. ;o) So you have the same use for a skillet, huh? Good call. Who needs a frypan, anyway, when there are restaurants?

Well, I guess I'm Prudence McPrude. I've been to nude beaches in Europe with no one around that I knew... I still kept it all on. I'm not sadistic.

The Lazy Iguana said...

The parts of me that have never seen the sun just need to keep that way.

I can not even BEGIN to imagine what the sunburn would be like. OUCH!!!!!

Hale McKay said...

Fun post, Lucy. I and three sailor mates were at a beach in Sweden. We stripped down - but we didn't go in the water, it was like ice cubes!
...No one even pays attention over there. (Well I know four sailors who did.)

kenju said...

This is fun to read, Lucy. I would give nearly the same answers, but I am not sure I could go nude - even if I didn't know the people or would ever see them again. It's not a pretty sight!!

neva said...

i'm still shaking my fist at myself for not realizing you were back to your bloggery!

GREAT meme! don't know if i'd go nude, even today, altho' i have noticed that, with age, i seem to care less and less about what people i don't know think... so... maybe!

i'm soooo glad you're back, can ya tell! : D

Thank goodness that little pot of sunshine and smiles that is the TLP blog is functioning again. I need my radio question fix, we don't have radios or questions in the UK, and certainly no combination of the two ;-)

Amusing answers and I admire your attitude to nudity, maybe one day I won't be scared of my flesh. (I'm with Aral and Kenju!)
