The "meme"anings of words

I got this from Blond Girl, who got it from Geekwif, who got it from someone else, who got it from someone else, etc. This is a word meaning meme where I write what Blond Girl's words mean to me, and then come up with a new set of words that you can define (fun, right?) So, here we go!

Sunrise-"Sunrise....I'm gonna praise His Name. Sunset.....I'm gonna praise His Name"-it's a song, the first thing that came into my mind when I read this word, and now it is stuck in my head. Thanks Blond Girl!

Harmony-When everything is lined up just perfect with a nice sense of peace.

Affliction-Nothing exciting immediately came to mind, so I thought I would google search the word to get a little inspiration......and I saw that you can buy affliction on Ebay. Actually what comes up is mostly lots of clothes. Which makes sense, because I do have a clothes buying affliction.

Avocado-Yum!! Avocados are always great! And since we are here talking about them let me tell you a story. My husband and I have this little debate going on that started back before we were married. California or Florida. I say that California avocados are better, but he is determined that the ones from Florida are. What do you think?

Now it's your turn.....if you want. Leave me a comment if you play so that I can come see yours. Here are your words:



  1. Bear... my first thought was, i wonder if my dad got his bear tag for hunting season this year. not so much a definition, but its all ive got.

    Purple... the color of the Oregon sky in the last moments as the sun drops below the oceans horizon.

    Light... the thing i hope i see when i die. as long as it isnt a red glow, im home free.

    Tomato... now im chanting you say tomato i say tomato (sad) definition? Italian grandmothers secret weapon.

    this was fun! Michele sent me.

  2. Bear - forrest

    Purple - High School, purple & white were our school's colors.

    Light - cloud

    Tomato - soup

  3. Thanks for playing! It is fun, isn't it?

    Here's my list for you (since I've already played, I'll do it here rather than at my place):

    Bear: Well, being NASD Series 7 registered, the first thing I think of is a bear market, which is not a good thing, really.

    Purple: My Sweet Girl's bedroom: White walls and purple and lavender accesories. It is so cute!

    Light: "All good things come from the Father of light". I think of when the clouds break and light shines down and it feels like Heaven reaching out to remind me that He is near.

    Tomato: Well, first I thought "Yum!!!!!!!!!" but then, right on the heels of that came "Hi kids! I'm Bob the Tomato! And I'm Larry the Cucumber! And have we got a show for you!"

  4. A clothes-buying affliction. That's a good one! :) Thanks for picking this one up from BG. I thought it was so much fun!

    Now, as for your words, since I've already done this on my blog, I'll just post my answers right here...

    Bear - Big, cute, and furry. I wish they were as cuddly as they look. I really hope not to run into one after we move to the country!

    Purple - The color of my living room walls

    Light - Artificial light is necessary and a good thing, but give me tons of all natural sunlight any day and make me a happy girl!

    Tomato - Raw tomatoes don't do much for me, except maybe in salsa. I do love a good tomato based sauce though...or chili. Yummy!

  5. Cute meme!

    Bear: an animal I love to love from afar
    Purple: the color of my kitchen walls (don't worry, we're currently repainting!)
    Light: what we don't have enough of in our kitchen (we hope to put in a skylight)
    Tomato: my favorite fruit

  6. Tracie,
    Many thanks for the comment you left on my blog. I appreciate feedback! I'll be by later to check out more of your blog.
