For Your Information

I wrote this post in a hurry as I’m walking out of the door; I will be offline for the next 9 hours to take care of some business but I wanted this post to be read tomorrow. If anything does not make sense, sorry in advance. Well some interesting things are and are not happening here at Morning Erection.

Community Network Meme – July 2012

To begin with, I should have the questions for the July meme to everyone participating, emailed to you by the close of business Monday. There are twenty questions. I think these questions are much easier than those from last year as well as the 30 Days of Blogging Honesty. That is not to say the questions are not good ones, they are. I just think they don’t require as much time to complete and that makes for an easier response time.

Below is the list of people who expressed interest in the meme and who will be mailed a list. If you are interested and do not find you name below, please email me. Remember you are not to share this list of twenty questions with anyone. Not everybody who could have submitted a guest, did so. My friend Roshni from Roshrulez’s Weblog helped with at least six of the questions, one of which will be used for the December meme. Thank you Roshni.

Everyone who wants in must contact me for the questions and everyone must use the graphic above. One more very important change to note; the meme is now July 1st and not July 8th as previously announced.

Guest Blogger – June

And in other news, I have not heard from Daniel Dockery in almost two months but fear not, Jacqui from SocialSistersBlog has graciously stepped into her guesting shoes and will be the guest blogger for June. Please check out her blog and be sure to come back on Saturday June 2nd to read her post.

30 Days Of Blogging Honesty: Thoughts On

It was a lot of work. It was very hectic but most of all it was fun. To sum my thoughts up in a single word on the 30 Days of Blogging Honesty; impressive.

  • I was impressed with the way everyone interacted with one another the most. I noticed that comments and replies to posts were not just from blogger to blogger but also crossed over into other blogs and the same conversation continued to another blogger’s post.
  • I was impressed that everyone respected other viewpoints on subjects they might not agree with.
  • I was also impressed to see people not involved in the challenge leaving comments and traveling to different blogs and leaving comments for the first time.
  • I was impressed with the feeling of community and comradery. It wasn’t just one person leaving comment after comment. People took the time to read other comments and replied to them as well.

My question to everyone who took part is two-fold. First, how did you feel about the challenge and do you feel you will continue visiting some of the blogs that were new to you at first? Secondly, there are different levels of honesty. Would you say that you were completely honest in most of your responses or were you just honest?

I’d like to thank everyone who took part in the challenge this year. There is a meme taking place in July if you would like to be a part of that and another one in December. And yes, we will have another Honesty challenge this coming February. Woo-hoo!

Let’s try to get some more men to participate, if only for my sake. But don’t think for one moment that I don’t love being surrounded by twenty plus woman and being the only male. Thank you Sajeev for joining the pack. I have also thanked you on the Handshakes, Hugs & Kisses page but again, thank you everyone who took this month-long journey and a special thank you to Cherlyn for coming up with most of the questions.

That’s all I got.

30 Days Of Blogging Honesty: The Dare

Category: Good Eats
Eat completely healthy for an entire day even if it means eating foods you do not care for. Document all failures or start over another day if you mess up.

Originally I did not follow directions. I did the dare requiring me to offer an apology to someone. Instead I wrote a forgiveness letter for someone who did me wrong. I believe I left the pain in the past and have forgiven the person but never let him know. Because I don’t have a way to get the letter to him and being the host of this meme, I thought it was not appropriate to deviate from the ‘spirit’ of the dare. So, I decided yesterday to change up and eat healthier. This enables me to fulfill this dare as well as come up with a few recipes that I can feature in August. During the entire month of August I am going to have food and health related posts with three or four recipes.

For breakfast I had four eggs. Despite any bad press that eggs have received over the years, they really are good for you. You even get more benefits by having both the yolk and whites together rather than just the whites.

For lunch I had vegetable panini. It was delicious. Let me say that again. It was so good, I wanted it for dinner too. It was delicious. First I sautéed onions, garlic and mushrooms together with cayenne pepper. Then I buttered the chabatta bread and heated the panini maker. I put the sandwich together by layering American cheese, mushrooms, garlic and onions mixture. Next came the spinach and thinly sliced tomatoes. I closed the top of the sandwich and closed the lid on the panini maker. The rest is history.

Dinner was good too. I made grilled jerk chicken and jerk shrimp that I had never heard of before but wanted to try to make it. The jerk seasoning I found on Food Network’s Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives aka Triple D. There were 36 ingredients and that was just to much for someone who doesn’t own a restaurant. Using nothing but my pantry and imagination I altered the recipe but still the chicken and shrimp came out very tasty. The recommended time for marinating the shrimp is only two hours. All the citrus juice in the marinade would have cooked the shrimp if I kept them in for the 10 hours the chicken was marinating. For my post in August I am going to marinate for  at least over night.

I had no dessert and drank more than enough water for the day? Do you know how you can tell if you have had enough water for the day? When your urine is clear, you’ve had enough.

It is finished! The challenge returns in February 2013 and the questions will be posted mid December. If you want your questions to be a part of the challenge, give me your questions now or I will get them elsewhere.
