The Blogging Chain Letter

I don't know about you, but when I was a kid I spent hours at a typewriter, typing chain letters. In many ways, this feels like an updated version of the chain letter - only using blogs. However, seeing as it's Saturday and Peter's at work and I'm feeling lazy, I decided it might be fun to participate after Molly tagged me in her post. I try not to do too many of these types of things on the blog, but every now and then, I cave.

And to those who are tagged, feel free to do it, or not. Unlike the days of the chain letter, there is no threat of bad things happening to you if you do not keep it going. Ah yes, nothing says "childhood fun" like vague death threats if you don't send letters out in the next three days to ten friends.

But let us not dwell on the past, on to the grown-up version of the chain letter. Enjoy!


If you want to play along, simply write out your:

1. Your name and blog name
2. Your blog URL
3. Write "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog"
4. Favorite quote
5. Favorite song right now and of all time
6. Favorite artist (musical artist or actual artist - I have no idea)
7. Something you say a lot
8. Tag your friends (optional)

Okay, Beth @ Beth Stone Studio, Kaysi @ A Kaleidoscopic Life, and Erika @ Always Better Together - for better or for worse, you've been tagged. Let's see how boring your week-end is, eh?


  1. Too fun! I may have to do this... I'll see how long it takes me to get around to it, though! I am surprised at how close your actual handwriting is to the font on your blog! :-)

    So you like "Kiss me", huh?! Have you ever heard the Japanese radio version? somehow I got a CD free when I worked at Appalachian that had that song on it, and I just love hearing the Japanese in it! (Actually I just quick googled it and found it here - http://www.last.fm/music/Sixpence+None+the+Richer/_/Kiss+Me+%28Japanese+version%29 and this is the link to the actual MP3 preview of the song if you're interested :-) http://s26.last.fm/preview/1421079/566/0001127564/13/471984778.mp3 )

  2. I totally agree with "junglewife." Your handwriting looks just like your blog font! I LOVE IT.

    Thanks for keeping the chain going...

    And, "nothing says 'childhood fun' like vague death threats," had me cracking up! So true. So true.

  3. Oh I will TOTALLY be doing this tonight. =) =) Re: #7, sounds like you've got a little hint of west coast in you!! ;o) I never said that till I had lived in Nevada for a while! (PS my "captcha" thingy for this comment is "ecalmove" -- is that kind of ironic considering what I just said? Sounds like "eastern California move" to me! Weird...)
