And Leiko Was Her Name-o, L-E-I-K-O

I’ve been tagged by Tiggerprr’s Scratching Post and Philly Transplant to do a name meme.

Here are the rules:

  1. You have to post these rules before you give the facts.
  2. Players, you must list one fact that is somehow relevant to your life for each letter of their middle name. If you don’t have a middle name, use the middle name you would have liked to have had.
  3. When you are tagged you need to write your own blog post containing your own middle name game facts.
  4. At the end of your blog post, you need to choose one person for each letter of your middle name to tag. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.

My middle name is Leiko. Depending on who you ask, it could mean little flower, proud, or arrogant. I think it means little flower. ;-)

LOYAL – I am one of the most loyal friends you’ll ever have. However, stab me in the back and I can hold a grudge forever.

EBAY & EMAIL – Addicted to both.

INDEPENDENT – I don’t like to rely on other people so I’ve learn to depend on myself. You’d be amazed at the things I can do.

KIDNEY STONE – I passed a kidney stone once. The doctor said it would be the worst pain I’d ever feel in my life. Uh, try childbirth.

OLD – I celebrated a birthday recently and even though I don’t look old, my body is sure feeling the years.

I’m not sure who has or hasn’t done this yet but these are the people I’m tagging:

Life is Good . . . At The Beach
Ever After . . . My Way
It’s All For the Best
Karen of Write from Karen
Oh oh, I couldn’t find anyone who started with the letter O.

    It figures that you have a beautiful middle name! :-)

    I hope that you all are taking cover from the pending hurricane. Please stay safe!

    Just logging and and stopping by to see if everyone is okay with all the natural/weather happenings “in your neck of the woods”. Atlanta is over 100 degrees…but no earthquakes or hurricanes. Are you all ok?

    Thinking of you.

  3. Monkey Giggles says:

    Thinking of you today girl..

  4. Sparky Duck says:

    yep, one cool middle name, no shock there.

    and you were even good with the rules of tagging based on a name, i just looked for 4 people. Kudos to you

    That was a fun one that I hadn’t seen before. I’m surprised the dr. told you it was the most painful thing…I’ve always heard them tell men “It’s the closest thing to experience the intense pains of childbirth”, and I’d wondered how they really compared. I guess you’re one of the few who know.

  6. Melissa says:

    I can feel for ya with the kidney stone. I think the thing that made it worse than childbirth for me was the fact that we didn’t know what it was. And the dr. took his own sweet time coming in to talk to us. So, I just lay there. In horrible pain. Not having any clue as to what the deal was. At least when I was in labor I knew what was causing the pain and why ;)

  7. Jen @ One Moms World says:

    Love the name! I hear ya on the kidney stones… I passed two and they told me the same thing worse than childbirth HA!

  8. Desert Songbird says:

    Great job, beautiful name, Oh Arrogant One…oops, I mean Little Flower!

  9. Jill says:

    This is such a fun meme. And you have a beautiful name. Kailani Leiko… so pretty!

  10. yoshi says:

    Leiko, that’s a pretty cool name. I like it! Too bad I don’t have a middle name. :P

  11. Christine says:

    Beautiful flower! I love your middle name. :)

    I’ve never had a kidney stone, and I”ve been told the same thing, by a man, and thought to myself, but you’ve never had kids.

  12. Stacey says:

    Me too! I’ll be celebrating the 40 side of life in October and suddenly I feel it! What’s going on?!

  13. Renee says:

    I’m so glad I haven’t gotten tagged for this one yet…cuz my middle name is so long!

    hoping you’re safe in the hurricane.

    and like everyone else has already said…you have a very pretty name.

  14. Melli says:

    Now THAT is an interesting one I have not seen before. However… I shall WAIT for it to come to me… as undoubtedly it eventually will! LOL!

  15. donetta says:

  17. Grace says:

    Belated happy birthday to you, exactly a week ago (8th)? Your middle name sounds cute!

  18. tiggerprr says:

    I’m thinking of you and my many ex-schoolmates who’ve ended up in Hawaii. Been thinking of you all day actually but just not a moment to really type. I love your middle name, it’s so beautiful.

  19. Heather L. says:

    Thanks for the tag. Sorry it took me so long to get mine up, but it’s there now. I love your middle name!!! PRETTY!!!
    Hope all is right on the islands what with all the wacky weather! Take care!
