A Package & A Meme ....

I'm so excited ... as I mentioned in yesterday's post, I received a wonderful, amazing package from Greeneyes, all the way from Newfoundland. She posted it ages ago, and we had almost given up hope of it ever arriving ... lost at sea, perhaps. It seems it was sitting in Australian Customs for quite some time ... they opened it, sticky-beaked through it, re-sealed the box, and finally sent it over to me. Here's a photo of all the goodies ... there were pens, stickers, candies, notbooks, Christmas decorations, quotes, a lovely scrapbook kit, stickynotes ... the list is endless. Greeneyes, you are wonderful ... I looooooove it all, thank you so very very much.

I borrowed this meme from Michelle. It's a lot of fun ...

Goodness, I think I'm definately a TV Addict. Admittedly, many of these I used to watch years ago, but I do still spend a lot of time in fron of the "idiot box" !!

Feel free to take on the challenge of this meme ... let me know if you do.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. Have lots of fun, and enjoy a couple of days off (if you can !!).

Take care,



Jenn said...

Looks like a great package for a crafty person like you. Good thing those sticky-beaked customs people didn't eat up your candy.

LZ Blogger said...

WOW! You win! ~ jb///

Michelle said...

LOL, i didn't think anyone would beat me! Congratulations, i think you have :o)

Have a good weekend!

Meow said...

Jenn ... *giggle*, thank you, and I'm glad they didn't eat the candy, too.

LZ Blogger ... yay !!

Michelle ... I am such a couch potato at times, it is quite scary !!! Although, I usually record all my fave programs, and watch them when it suits me !!

Take care, Meow

Jeanette said...

lovely parcel there it looks like it was well worth the waiting for
I hope all the candies there . take care,Jen

Nancy said...

I love the Tom Jones song and the dancing kitty. Great Blog!

Chrixean said...

My goodness, that is a hard list to beat.... and yes, from the looks of that list you are indeed a certified TV addict! haha! I won't even try to top that one...:P

Great package! Certainly one worth waiting for :)

Happy weekend too!

Meow said...

Jeanette ... thank you. It is an amazing parcel ... too much stuff !!

Nancy ... thank you, and welcome. Glad you like Tom Jones !!!

Chrixean ... thank you. Yep, that's me ... a TV Addict. Oh well, there's worse things to be addicted to !!!!

Take care, Meow

green eyed girl on planet earth said...

Hi Meow
Yahhh! I knew it would come ,eventually !!!!! I could have walked with it faster tee hee
Hope you enjoy sorry for all the waiting :}

And I never thought I would meet someone who liked tv as much as me ! I must confess I am more into the computer now since blogging but tape some of my shows like you , we are alike in so many ways , COOL
Hugs friend

Dick said...

That is quite a list of TV shows. Many I have never heard of but it sure brings back some great memories of some of the old ones. There are a couple of them that I've bought DVDs of some of the old shows & still enjoy watching them at times. A recent one was Laugh-In that I loved but I found most of the jokes go right over the heads of my kids as they did't live through the things they talked about.

Alice said...

Wow. Not fair. That's a great gift, and *stamps foot* I WANT ONE!

...a-hem! Sorry. Childish fit over.

Anyway! Love the pictures; especially the one with Bambi (but then I'm cat biased), I must send you a postcard as soon as I find one, I'll try and do the meme on Monday (No time now, unfortunately) and have a great weekend.



Bossy♥'s YOU said...

i didint know there were so many dang tv shows...

sadly I dont watch too much anymore, after the hit of realtity tv, it kinda lost its glitter..i love the old fashoin sitcom..they dont make those anymore and its a damn pity:)

FruitfulSpirit said...

I could add even more to your list. I know I watch too much tv. Hope you have a great weekend too! I must go see the new picture of Bambi!

Tab said...

I think I am going to give my address to Greeneyes too...yum! lol

Meow said...

Greeneyes ... yep, I knew it would come eventually, too !! No apologies necessary, not your fault. Thank you, though, I love it all. I have always loved TV, but like you, I tend to spend more time on the computer ... I prefer to watch recorded shows anyway, I can fast forward through the ads !! Many big hugs to you, my friend xx

Dick ... thanks. I was never into Laugh In ... bit before my time !! From what I've seen, though, it was very funny.

Alice .... *giggle* .... thanks. Hope you have a fab-o weekend.

Bossy Britches ... I agree, they need to make some good old fashioned sit-coms again.

Fruitfulspirit ... thanks. Nothing wrong with TV. Like blogging, it is ok, so long as it doesn't take over your life !!! Hmmm, was that me saying that *giggle*.

Tab ... *giggle* ... Greeneyes is such a sweetie !!

Have a great weekend, friends.

Take care, Meow

lori said...

My list would not be very long at all. No outside T.V. at my house. Just pg movies.


Phew! Those were a lot of lists. I can recall: Baywatch, we don't have it here anymore. Flintstones too.
Thanks for passing by.

BarBarA said...

What a cool gift, how fun!!!

I am not a huge TV person so I didn't get too many :)

Have a great weekend sweetie!

Pennys from Heaven said...

I get a 0 on knowing anything about the TV shows :(

I do have a DVD player tho...and watch movies...LOL. Does that count??

How have you been? I have been hitting the books pretty hard lately, but this weekend I am making ample time for blogging!!

Have a Great weekend!

Peg & Bun-Bun

Connie and Rob said...

You did a great job on that list...I was just so tired when I thought about doing that

Have a good weekend.

Kyahgirl said...

Hi Meow
that is an interesting meme! I didn't realize you'd have so many north american shows down under. shows how ignorant I am.

Have a lovely weekend!

Sometimes Saintly Nick said...

I'm glad the package made it to you.

There is no use in me even attempting the meme; I don't even recognize many of the shows.

Meow said...

Lori ... thanks for dropping by.

Fridays Child ... seems I am the biggest TV addict so far !!

Barbara ... thank you.

Peg ... hope all is well with you and BunBun. Studying can be very stressful, hope you are taking time for yourself.

Connie ... thank you. It is an awfully long list, isn't it. I didn't make it up, I swear ... I only added 3 programs !!

Kyahgirl ... thanks. We probably have more American content on our TVs than Aussie programs. Oh well.

Nick ... thank you.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

Take care, Meow

Granny said...

I've been thinking about this one but I can tell from a glance I've watched far too much t.v. over the years.

Merle said...

Hi Meow, this is really Peter not Merle , but I'm logged into her heronsnest site thus the name would you be good enough to email me if the site opens correctly for you.

Anne said...

That package looks like a lot of fun! I love care packages. I feel all warm and fuzzy when UPS arrives.

Neo said...

Meow - Damn, now that's a list!!!

I read through them, and some of those shows I haven't seen in eons!

You're definitely a TV junkie. ;>

Have a great weekend!

Peace & Hugs,

- Neo

Meow said...

Granny ... I know what you mean. But, there are heaps on that list I have never heard of or watched (pats herself on the back !!).

Merle / Peter ... done it !!

Anne ... hi, long time no see. Yep, care packages are heaps of fun !!

Neo ... thank you. Yep, TV Junkie I am !!! I should buy a badge stating that !!

Take care all, and have a good one !!


kimananda said...

What a great package! How strange that customs would go through it though.

Have a great weekend!

Meow said...

Kimananda ... Australian customs are really pedantic at the moment. Who knows what they are looking for.

Take care, Meow

Pennys from Heaven said...

Meow and Peter, Where is Merle? I have been wondering how she is, as I have not heard from her in a time and her tabs are off her blog. I checked again just before coming here.

Jon Cox said...

Oh WOW!!!! How wonderful, what a thoughtful gift & great thing to do!!! Thats so awesome!!! I love your show list! :o) Thank you so much for stopping by, I'm very glad you like the covered bridge, thank you so much! :o)

Meow said...

Peg ... I answered you on your blog. Take care.

Jon ... thank you so much.

Hope you have a great Sunday.
Take care, Meow

brian said...

Hello there,

I saw your comment on Peter's blog about his tribute to project 2996. I wanted to let you all know that I have a tribute post for Gilbert on my blog and I have collected over 100 links to other posts if you are interested in reading.

Thanks Meow for caring.

Nicole said...

Hi Connie, Have an awesome Monday! Much love, Nicole xox.

Meow said...

Brian ... thank you, I'll come on over shortly and have a read.

Nicole ... thank you. You too !!

Take care, friends ... Meow

Phil said...

In all honesty I read the list over at Michelle's too and my thought was that the list is so extensive as to be exhausting to go through. And then highlighting! Who has time? I don't think I'd beat your total.

Merle said...

Hi Meow ~~ What a lovely parcel and a long meme. Brings back lots of good memories, and we used to watch more
years ago. Now we have computers.
I hope all is going well for you and that you had a great weekend. Time
flies whether we are having fun or not
Take care my friend and thanks for letting Peg know my new blog url.
Have a good week Connie, Merle.

Pennys from Heaven said...

What does MEME stand for or mean??


Badoozie said...

i would never remember about the tv shows....

Jamie Dawn said...

That's a great gift package!

I haven't seen 7th Heaven or Malcom in the Middle in awhile, but you should give those shows a try sometime. They are both really good. Malcom in the MIddle is so funny!!

24 rules!! We are addicted to that show. Can't WAIT for the new season.
We are also addicted to LOST.

Raggedy said...

WOW! What a list...
Crafty package looks like fun.
I have missed you!
Have a wonderful day!
(=':'=) hugs
(")_ (")Š from da Cool Raggedy one

Meow said...

Phil ... I know, it is a really huge list ... but I perservered !!!

Merle ... thank you. Hope your weekend was a good one.

Peg ... I think meme stands for "all about me, me, me"! Or something like that !!!

Jamie ... looks like you like the same sorts of programs as me. I confess, I have watched Malcolm and 7th Heaven once or twice, but never got into them.

Susie ... that's cool !!

Raggedy .. thank you, missed you too.

Take care, friends, and have a wonderful week.


Chloe said...

you have watched a lot of tv!
i don't know some of the shows, but i am positive i've seen every Friends and Cosby show episode. And Sex and the City. Many times over. xxx

Gwen said...

That's quite an impressive list you have,I can relate to a lot of them.There was one that was missing
I watched from start to finish it was called [THE FUGITIVE]with David Janson.
I wont forget the final episode I was having my 4th baby and we all gathered in the only room with a T/V which was the day room busy time that year for babies,
the day room was being used as A WARD.

Clare said...

Hey Meow

Thanks for that Meme thing. It was cool that you've seen every episode of The XFiles and Friends :).
