Six Random Things

Even Split Tree

Thanks to Michelle and Gina for tagging me to share six random things. The perfect tag, really, for a blogger who never keeps in step with meme themes!

1. I like even numbers. Six (as in "six random things") is an even number. Therefore I like the number six. If we were sharing a plate of chocolate chip cookies (oh could we?), you'd get three and I'd get three. Even split.

2. The word eventually actually includes the word even, which is kind of cool when you consider that, when it comes to memes, I always eventually get 'round to them. (It's been a while, hasn't it Michelle? Sorry!)

3. Eventide (linguistic roots in Middle English) is a cool word. Not only because it sports the word even in its confines, but also because it makes me feel a sense of something beautiful on the horizon. The way velvet night promises stars after the sun goes down.

4. The name Steven reminds me of St. Even. Which is kind of comforting. If even Even could be a saint, perhaps I could be one too.

5. Eleven. The word El means god or God in Hebrew. Interesting that the El of the bible is not even. God is odd; three in one. Not a single even number in sight. I have to think about the implications of that for someone like me, who as I said before likes even numbers.

6. Even Dogs Can Have Blogs. This too is a comfort. If Max can run a successful blog, maybe I can even run one too.

Okay, that's it. Six random things. Well, sort of random. If you count random things around a single, simple theme like even as random!

Play or not now: Andrea, Christianne, Ann, Llama Mama, Craver, Brandon. That's six. I even counted.

Ha, ha! I had to laugh. What a random imagination! Liked the thought on God being odd. Definitely hard to put him in any category. God's not normal at all.

Joelle... glad you (a fellow word lover, I think) enjoyed this. I guess I'm always looking for a little "something more" in these memes that go 'round.

l.l., you are so cute with this meme.

i have to state for the record (confession time, here) that you tagged me for an "8 random things" meme sometimes LAST YEAR (what was it you were just saying about eventually getting around to them yourself, too?) . . . which i guess means i'll be doing a meme or 14 random things. :)

Random, interesting, unique, but never odd.

I spoke to a gent from South Carolina today. The name of his town is "Stoney Crossing." Naturally, I recommended your book.

My response is posted.
