The Bedside Table Meme

I got tagged with a Meme! Its by blog sister Barb of Righty in a Lefty State. It’s kind of an odd meme. It’s a bedroom meme. Heh.

It’s a ‘what’s on your nightstand’ meme. I can do this one. This is easy. However, y’all are going to be sorely disappointed. Whereas my desk looks like Office Depot threw up on it, my bed side nightstand is sparse in comparison. OK, maybe not sparse, but it is orderly.

Keep in mind, that things just appear on my bedside table at times and I do not know why. My life is not my own. Those who hold a y chromosome in this house simply like me to think I'm in control. In reality, it is all a big ruse.

On my bed side nightstand I have the following:

1 lenox lamp

1 digital alarm clock

2 small jar candles

1 family picture with my Mom and Dad, siblings, spouse and two of my kids (Bones wasn’t born). Hunh. Guess I should update that…

1 picture of The Great Omnipotent One when I think he was an Ensign, just out of the Academy

1 picture of my Mom that I think someone took at a counter at a department store

1 picture of my sister, her High School graduation… making that circa 1989.

1 picture of my brother, same thing… making that circa 1985.

1 picture of my husband and I at our engagement... circa 1991.

1 ceramic snake container painted by Son#2 and filled with rocks (smooth gems actually… the kind you buy at Rock City “buy all the gems you can fill in this small bag for just $2.99!”) It’s not my snake container. One of my kids put it there.

1 small stuffed moose head (I have no clue why it’s on my nightstand or from what moose it came… evidently there is a headless moose somewhere in my house… a SMALL headless moose…)

1 pencil (not mine)

1 gold Sakajawea dollar (The gift of tooth fairies, I do believe that one of my boys, in their excitement that the shiftless no good stinking tooth fairy actually did her job, bounded in to my room one morning to show me, leaving the fairy gift on my nightstand. I’d bet the dollar it was Bones…)

And, I have no clue why… or who left it there… but 1 Miraculous Medal which can be seen here and has the Virgin Mary on the front and an emblem of an M, a cross, and two hearts on the back. Evidently Catherine (the Saint who was given the instructions for the making of the medal) was told that ‘those who wear it will receive great graces, especially when worn around the neck…” I wonder what graces you receive when you keep it on your bedside… Hmmm. (I just clicked a few more holes in that ticket to hell card with that one, didn't I?)

There you have it. Not much is apt to change, except I expect the eventual removal of the Moose head and the pencil… and the gold coin will be claimed, although not necessarily by it’s rightful owner who is evidently not missing it, and the snake pot will eventually find it’s way, gems and all, to the owner’s room. But none of that will happen soon, of that I am sure.

I have to hit five people with this. It's an easy Meme folks, so I am hitting up five and I'm fully bracing myself for the ration of garbage I am going to take for it: Tammi, Sally, Jack, Ogre, and Contagion. Heh. Do Ogre's have nightstands???

You are my hero! You didn't nail me with the meme this time. Thank you! I love your nightstand. Though I must say, this would be the one time I would have an easy answer. As I threw everything in the drawers the other day. ;-)

Well, it's quite limited what I can put on my bedside table when it comes to Stella The Cat. See, I have to have cough drops during the night due to my asthma (it just helps to keep my throut moist as to not gag on air). Anyway, I have my alarm clock, my eye pillow filled with Patchole goodness and my cough drops. All of which Stella the cat likes to confiscgate and swat under anything with at least a 1" space. Like the fridge, washing machine, dryer, dishwasher, coffee table, etc. It's quite maddening!!

Holy crap! How big is this bedside table?

That's pretty kewl, actually - especially the pics. I loved the bit about going to hell -- what fun we will have ...

Okay, I guess you haven't crucified me with one of these in the last 3 months so it was my turn again huh? FINE!
