Look At This Stuff

Selma @ Selma In The City tagged me with Look At This Stuff meme.

(This is one of the funnest memes I have ever done!)

You have to find five things around your house that say something about the person you are and snap a picture of them. Then tell us about them.

Okay people, here we go:

Dragon Flies.
I have a bunch of these around my room. I suppose I collect them. And this is the story as to WHY.



Truman Capote.
I own every book and every poem he has ever written. (He is my writing hero.) And I own every movie that was ever made about him or based upon any of his books.



My Corner.
This is where I do all my thinking, writing, movie making, and blogging. This purple sanctuary is my source of inspiration, my safe harbor, and my favorite place in the whole wide world.


The Grateful Dead.
I toured with The Dead back in my teenage hay days. I have been to over 300+ shows across the country. I have hitch hiked and driven thousands of miles to see them play. I gave my son his middle name after a Dead song because my mother wouldn’t let me name him Jerry.


My Mac.
Where would I be without my Mac? I carry this Apple everywhere I go. I have even been known to sleep with my computer. If this computer is not with me, I literally experience separation anxiety!



And now for the people I am tagging (optional of course):

If you liked my post, feel free to subscribe to my rss feeds

  • Your Purple room looks awesome. AND it’s one of my favorite colors. So yeah… I’m all over that.

    Your toured with the Grateful Dead? You must have some great stories!

    And last… you are everything that is perfect and awesome because you own a Mac. Owning a Mac is like being in an exclusive cult. Don’t drink the Kool-Aid!

  • Love the Capote and very impressed about The Grateful Dead. I, too, am a Macaholic. Thanks so much for playing. You are the best!

  • Jodi

    Yanno we may have met…at a Dead show! Man it scares me how similar we are…(I have the collectible Jerry Bears that came with his ties….ever seen them?)

  • Jodi

    I heart Meleah!

  • I your corner. Better than the corners we have around here.

    You toured with the dead. Those must have been some fun times.

    The way you handle your computer is how I was when I obtained my first laptop. I miss Apples. I’d love to make the transition back.

  • Jodi

    grrr why is it doing that? sorry

  • okay. now i have a song from the little mermaid stuck in my head. it starts “look at this stuff, isn’t it neat? don’t you think my collection’s complete?”

    just great.

    that’s just great.

    i worked for 5 years to get that song out of my head.

    you owe me a new brain.

    LOVE the purple thinking space. btw

  • girl.. you know how bad i am about doping memes…. i bought a camera about 6 months ago,, and have used it like twice… i really ought to do this,,, but time will tell if i actually door not…..

    i love your space… it is so bright and cheerful…..

  • Meleah

    Purple is my FAVORITE color. I love my room sooo soooo much. Thats probably why I never leave the damn house unless I have to!

    Macs rule!

    Yes I have a billiion dead stories, maybe one day Ill write about them. Hmm…In fact I kept journals of the whole time, I should digg them out.

    mmmmm Kool-Aid.

    Capote = My Idol. (aside from Tina Fey)

    I saw your mac in that adorable picture of you! (I am jealous of your PRO)

    And the Dead was a GOOD time!

    My blog has been wonky for the last few days….Sorry! Oh the DEAD BEARS? Yes I had all of them…but they were ruined along the way… 🙁

    My corner is my favorite place to be, wish I was there right now. And um, yeah….switch back to Mac!

    ha ha ha ha ha ha Sorry! Ill try to get a new song in your head!

    I know you dont “do” memes….but its me! and, I need a peek INSIDE your world…give me JUST A PEEK! Please? And….Use your CAMERA.

  • I am going to go build me a corner! I really need one. Now, where to find a spare corner…

  • Ok I’ll play 🙂
    I’ll try and get it done this weekend… I have to mess with Lee’s head first though 😉
    I love your Corner!

  • I now have “The Little Mermaid” song stuck in my head-oh never mind-Under Pressure by Queen/David Bowie helped with that.

    You’ll have to give me some Capote recommendations-I’ve read “In Cold Blood” and “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” and would love to read more of his stuff.

  • Meleah

    Michael C:
    Having your own corner is essential. I love ‘my spot’….

    Yippppeeeeee! Oh sweet …..I cant wait to see you mess with Lee’s head!!

    I have never even heard of the song that you guys are referring too! Anyway, Capote = AWESOMENESS. Read this: Other Voices Other Rooms

  • I love the Waterbug story!! And your corner looks so cozy. This looks like a fun meme….I’ll post it tomorrow.

  • I loooove The Dead! Saw them several times back in my maidenform days…& my blog-mistress did get to look in Bob Weir mouth once (as a dental assistant!) This meme looks fun!…will work on it & post it soon!!! 🙂

  • Meleah

    Chef Mom:
    The waterbug story is one of the best. It means sooooo much to me. Thanks for reading it. my corner is way cozy! Oh I cant wait to see your 5 things 🙂

    Get OUT!! She was INSIDE Bobby’s mouth? *writhing with jealousy* Lucky Lucky grrrl. I still love me some Dead. And I really cant wait to see YOUR version of this meme! xxoo

  • I loves dragonflies. I’m finishing the tattoo on my back with a little dragonfly to represent my grandson and a larger dragonfly to each side to represent both of my kiddies.

  • I love dragonflies too. I don’t know what it is about them. Thanks for the tag! I love this meme!

  • This was cool. I have to do the meme. I will try during the weekend.

  • wheew I’m glad I missed this one it would have been embarrassing..One empty Jack Daniels bottle..three empty pizza cartons..a rear axle from a 32 Ford pickup..One half full bottle of Budweiser..reasonably fresh and my pin up of Ann Margaret….:))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))

  • I usually hate being tagged but this one sounds like a fun one!

  • Hey, how’s JCH doing? Just read about the sickness.
    Wow, going to so many of The Grateful Dead concert is an achievement 🙂 I bet only a few fans can say that they have been to so many 🙂

  • OMG! That’s a hard one! Nothing in my apartment says much of anything about my…nothing I want public! ahahahahahaha!

    Okay…I’m up for the challenge!

    Love your 5!!!! 🙂

  • Meleah

    Thats HOT.

    Cant wait to see your 5!

    Yippee! I know you need a distraction and since you have that new camera, figured you would put it to good use! xxoo

    hahhahahaha hahahahahah

    I know you hate tags, but I think this one was really fun, and I know YOU will have a good time with this!

    JCH is doing better, now I am the one with a sore throat. YIKES.

    Drowsey Monkey:
    Sweet! Can’t wait to see your 5! I am sure you will find something!

  • Meleah, I have complied with your demands.

    Someone should have told the dragonfly story to Plato. I could never get into the Capote bandwagon too much. Same with Warhol. And I am so embarrassed that you took a picture of your office and I noticed me outside in the car stalking you! Didn’t I just mention Jerry somewhere? And the only Mac I like is covered in cheese.

    Peace and Love Jesus (not the prophet; my neighbor with the huge porn collection).

  • Damn, I hate WordPress. If you don’t see my last comment, then I had left the most beautifully eloquent response that you’ve yet read where I exposed the inner most depths of my soul. If you do see a comment, well that’s not the one I was talking about.

  • Meleah

    Yes! Excellent. I cant wait to read your answers. I just know you did something CRAZY over there.

    I wish I had a good neighbor like that.

    *ps…anyone who tries to leave a comment with a link IN it gets shoved into moderation…and TRUST me…it needs to be that way.

  • You’re a deadhead?!! Me too!! I went to so many shows back in the day…hundreds for certain…even followed them to Europe in 1990. I wonder if we were ever at the same shows…

  • Meleah


    I bet we were at the same shows!!

    I am a Major Dead Head over here. I never made it to Europe, but I did see them in EVERY SINGLE STATE in the US. I followed them for YEARS.

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE The Dead. I even have journals somewhere with the play lists for every show I went to…and I have bootlegged tapes SOMEWHERE …Jeez, I should probably look for those soon.

  • I don’t really keep stuff, so this would be hard for me. You’ve seen my house – minimalist – not even storage or shelves. 😉 I’ll take a look when I get back and see if I can find anything 🙂

  • Meleah


    Okay..I figured since you wont post too many pictures of yourself…maybe I could get you to post pictures of YOUR STUFF? xxoo

    Have a WONDERFUL BIRTHDAY WEEKEND “get away.” I wish I was there to celebrate your Bday. I love you sooo sooo sooo sooo much! xxoo xxoo

  • Very nicely done! I’ll get on this in the next day or so.

  • Meleah

    Sweeet! I cant wait to see your FIVE! xxoo xxoo Thanks for playing along.
