Meme? Oh my!

December 23rd, 2005

Just when I was starting to like Fred from RealDebateWisconsin he smacked me with the meme stick.

If you don’t know what a “meme” is in blogger speak, cialis sale pharmacy just substitute the phrase “chain email.”

OK, medicine so I’m supposed to answer the following questions:

What were you doing 10 years ago?
Driving a patrol car.

What were you doing 1 year ago?
Wrestling with a serial killer.

Five snacks you enjoy:
1.) Jujubes!
2.) Lemon Heads.
3.) Pop Secret Lite.
4.) Holiday Snack Cakes.
5,) Honeycrisp Apples.

Five songs to which you know all the lyrics;
1.) Happy Birthday.
2.) Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer.
3.) Jingle Bells.
4.) Time in a Bottle.
5.) If I had a Million Dollars.

Five things you would do if you were a millionaire
1.) Pay my debts. (This would, of course, leave me with no money to do 2 through 5.)
2.) Keep a flat in London.
3.) Buy one of the new Intel-based Mac laptops when they come out.
4.) Buy a duplex and move my parents to Wauwatosa to live in it.
5.) Get a Porsche 911 fitted with hand-controls and a roof rack for my chair.

Five bad habits
1.) Jujubes!
2.) Spouting off about politics.
3.) Video games.
4.) Listening to NPR.
5.) Pretending I heard someone, even if I wasn’t listening.

Five things you’ll never wear again
1.) Footie pajamas.
2.) Briefs.
3.) Corduroys.
4.) A t-shirt with a saying on it.
5.) A badge.

Five favorite toys:
1.) My PowerBook.
2.) My iPod.
3.) My Xbox.
4.) My Colt .45 Gold Cup.
5.) Ripley, my german shepherd (more friend than toy, but what the heck).

And now the hunted becomes the hunter.

If any of the following bloggers stumble across this post, I toss the meme gauntlet down on your keyboards.

Grumps from The Happy Circumstance (That’ll teach you to stop by for a visit once!)

John from Marquette Warrior, because he seems like the sort of guy who would LOVE to do this.

James at Wigderson Library &Pub.

Sadie at Sadie Says: because I’m dying to see how a dog would answer these questions.


The guys at Letters In Bottles, because one of the only songs I know all the lyrics to is Time in a Bottle and Letters in Bottles is close enough!

If any of you have already answered this meme, you can send your nasty emails to: Fred!

    Hey James, you don’t have to answer it seriously.

    In fact, I strongly recommend you answer it humorously.
