    Can you sum up your life (so far) in only 6 words?

    There's a book out called "6 line autobiographies" by L. Smith and has quotes from well-known people and unknown people, and run from poignant to funny to pithy ... there are a lot of 'contests' being run all over the place too.

    Here are some samples to give you an idea...
    (I think the hardest thing is not making it sound like it's on a tombstone tho?)

    --Totally indescribable in only six words.

    --Bah! The grass is always greener!

    --Cursed with cancer. Blessed by friends
    (9 year old girl)

    --I still make coffee for two

    --Most successful accomplishments based on spite.

    --Where the hell are my _______?!

    --Little bit Lucy, tempered by Ethel

    --Me: consistently avoiding death since ___

    --ABCs, MTV, SATs, GRE, IRA, SS.

    --Put whole self in, shook about.

    AND my favorites:

    --Made plans but life happened instead (acknowledged: John Lennon)

    ----Not quite what I was planning.

    I still haven't come up with one for myself but working on it... that last 2 pretty much describes my life and hard to top it.

    SO - what do you have to say about YOUR self in only 6 words?

    If you feel the need for more than 6 words, it's allowed to make 2 or 3 6 word succinct statements... but that's kind of cheating to me?

    Looking forward to your autobiographies!

    what a talented bunch. My old history professor would be delighted. He always wanted papers that were clear, cogent and concise.

    The author of the book above is collecting more, and will send you something in return if you submit a 6-word bio, tho he doesn't say what it is. Here's his site:

    Here's another good one from above page:

    "Can't remember to make up my mind."

    Hey Rock, I sure wish I'd have had your history prof. I was always told I was TOO succinct, that I should expand more. When I did, I always felt like I was being too wordy and repetitive, but that's what they wanted. Out of sync as usual. (Hey, that's 5 words, I'm getting close!)

    Which is pretty funny to me now, since I haven't been able to come up with my own 6-word bio... but I'll blame it on my brain fog/headache for now.

    --My mind: gone but not forgotten.

    ( 'life' could be substituted for 'mind' as I still have hope...)

    Journey begun, breathtaking fun, journey done.

    ETA: not quite sure about what goes before fun.
    And: Oh, "so far"! I missed that bit and cut to the chase
    so to speak.
