The meme of E...

This meme has probably traveled around the internet world and back, which is why I'm catching it on the backswing. It's called Scattergories like the game, that incidentally I've always enjoyed. I saw it over at Junk in the Trunk which regularly affords me a giggle and grin. In fact, yesterday she alerted readers to 10 ways to know if they have estrogen issues. My husband saw me reading it and asked if I did.

"Of course, not! I have marvelous little estrogen replacement pills instead." But I alerted him to the wisdom of #4, anyway.

Oh yes, this meme. Anyway, I decided to do this one because my first name is not Elle. It's a phonetic pseudonym for my name. So I thought it would be a greater challenge to come up with things I've never had to think about--which is, I believe the whole point of memes.

Join in if you'd like. Leave a comment, and I'll read what you've never thought about before either.

The game is's harder than it looks! Here are the rules: Use the 1st letter of your name to answer each of the following. They MUST be real places, names, things...NOTHING made up!
