A Thursday Thirteen MeMe

I'se been tagged by my furrends Sammy & Miles at Meezer Tails for the Thursday Thirteen MeMe! Here's how it goes:

The guidelines for this tag:

1. Link to your tagger and post these rules
2. Write some facts about yourself: some random, some weird, some just plain fun.
3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post and list their names (linking to them)
4. Let those 7 people know they’ve been tagged by leaving a comment at their blogs.

The challenge is to keep it interesting without making the reader think “Um, too much information…” - well I'll try to comply with this request but I'm a Meezer and we do go on sometimes...So here are my Thirteen Things:

1) My name 'Storm' is of Olde Englishe origin and means 'Tempest'. I think Meowmie just thought it sounded cool when she gave me that name though, not cos I've got a temper or anything.

2) I was born in the village where David Beckham & Posh Spice have their mansion, Beckingham Palace. The village is called Sawbridgeworth and is in Hertforshire.

3) My Grandad was a Grand Champion at some big cat show - my Meowmie is a BIG stupid though cos she has misplaced my Pedigree information and family-tree so I can't even give you his name!

4) Meowmie says my pedigree name was something like Adunum or Adenam (she has no idea!!!) Pimpernel and/or Scarlet something or other. Thanks Meowmie! You try tracing your family tree when you don't even know your BIRTH NAME!!!! Bloody Hell Woman!

5) When me and Castle were chosen by Meowmie J there were about 16 kittens to choose from (4 litters). Originally Meowmie J only wanted 1 Meezer but Meowmie L was there too and she fell in love with me on sight (the X on my nose 'marked the spot' apparently!). Meowmie L told Meowmie J that it was unfair to only have 1 meezer on it's own.

6) My Meowmy L didn't have much money when she bought me so she had to get a 2nd job driving DJs to all-night raves to pay for us! She didn't get to be at our first night together at Meowmie J's cos she was driving a DJ to Manchester and back from London! (A trip of about 9 hours which included the DJ gig time).

7) I originally lived with Meowmie J - but she got allergic to me and Castle very badly! She could not bear to part with us but in the end she had too cos she went to the hospital a couple of times cos she couldn't breathe. We then moved in with Meowmie L. We still see Meowmie J alot but we would like her to live with us really.

8) Meowmy has never heard me fart. She has heard Castle fart though, he made himself jump - I think the noise surprised him.

9) I love sitting in paper bags, i like to sit in it and peer over the top - my absolute favourite bag is a paper bag from Muji.

10) I like wildlife documentaries, my Meowmy has bought me some David Attenborough ones, I like the ones that have Big Cats in them. I also like to look at Birds on the Telly Box too!

11) Did I mention ever that I adore rotisserie chicken? Not sure I have ever told you that one.

12) I'm not scared of dogs - when they pester me at the Vet Place in the waiting room I don't even flinch, I just stare with disdain

13) I used to have a friend called Dubbs, he was a Dutch rabbit. He used to hang out with us alot, he had cancer too - he lived with it quite normally, and I might add untreated, for 3.5 yrs, it was a different cancer to mine so he wasn't ill until the very end. The vet could not quite believe how tough that bunny was!!! He is now at the Bridge.



Now, I'se gonna tag the following:

Tiger Lily!
Adan!
Chairman Mao!
Henry King Of Downing Street!
Pearl C. Pritchard!
The Crew!

Storm, thanks for visiting my site and teaching me about Geezers!

Cheysuli said...

Oh dear, I already tagged you last night and didn't get over here to tell you... Sigh.

At any rate, that was a lovely list of things to learn about you. Even if you don't have your papers, I think that you yourself are a champion.

Daisy said...

I liked reading more things about you Storm. I can tell your mom really, really loves you.

I never make those stink-noises, either.

I LOVE #8!
Hahahahaha, that is so funny, to get scared by your own fart!
I never fart either, neither did Anastasia.
We tried watching the David Attenborough Planet Earth DVDs but is has too much prey/predator killing for the maid.... And she claims to be a biologist, so she should know that's how it is!
Thanks for these interesting facts!

Oh that is funny about the farts. Prinnie used to fart a lot but she did not make a sound... she was just sneaky... and all of a sudden the room smelled reeeeealllly bad.
I love this picture of you and Castle and Dubbs. He is black and white... my favorite colors!


Headbutts to you Storm! well done!!

Chairman Mao said...

Hiya, Stormie! thankies so much for the tag -- that looks like funsies! And about the farts -- whooooo, I used to have farts that could clear a room in no time flat. That was when Momma and Daddy first brought me in. But now the smelly farts are gone and I don't fart too much no more. Good thing too cuz momma and daddy were thinkin' they were gonna hafta get gas masks, hehehehe!!

Kimo & Sabi said...

Dragonheart said...

I enjoyed learning more about you, Storm. :) How wonderful that your mom worked an extra job to pay for you! My registered name is the same as my common name, with my breeder's cattery name added to the front, of course. My breeder was thankfully very sensible when naming her litters.

My dad is very allergic to furred kitties, but fortunately isn't allergic to Sphynx (some people with allergies are, some aren't) and so my humans have me!

I loved learning more about you, Storm. I think it is cool that you had a bunny friend. I like rotisserie chicken, too. It was funny that Castle was scared by his own fart.
