Friday Five – Stupid Memes, You Have More?
Here are five memes that probably won’t work if I start them:
- eight things you like about me
- five things about your underwear
- write eight quadratic equations
- seven commandments you have yet to break
- your six favorite memories of Sochi
I loved this response to my meme tag.
I am a game player. One of the games I like to play is the “I don’t play games” game. One of the ways in which I have fun in this game is to play other peoples’ games but not follow their rules. This is, of course, not within the parameters of the gameplayers who send games my way, but part of my game includes adding a rule to their game. In this way, I make it a game I am playing, and not just a game that plays me. This one rule is that I can add one rule to whatever sets of rules come with the game given me (predictable and yet brilliant, eh?). Given that, the one rule may vary, and also (surprisingly?) may come in pairs or multiples of one. But it will always include, firstly, the right to add itself.
I love your suggested memes. You’re right. No one’s gonna do them.
Rule number one in memes (rhymes with themes?!?!) is there are not rules. Thanks for playing along
PS – I stole your tag line minus the first four words, GSL. I will however give credit where credit is due prefacing it with “I read this on some 60 year old guys blog and really like it!” – I will only pay royalties Google money becomes fully transferable.
@Rhea: I challenge you to try one!
@Bob: I cleaned it up for the blog because when I first started I didn’t have any guts. It’s a quote from Maxine, and the last word is rhymes with twit. (I still don’t have the guts to put it in my header!)
Sochi basically got the bid because of a Whistler based company called Ecosign which has developed all the ski venues for the winning bids in Whistler, Calgary and Salt Lake City. It seems getting them on board is a ticket to a winning bid. http://www.ecosign.com/news-sochi2014.htm
I feel sorry for Korea. They barely lost to Whistler last time and now they barely lose again. They have to be a shoe in for 2018.
@Savvy Boomer: now that’s interesting. Thanks for sharing it.
@Savvy: I love that they call themselves Mountain Designers. I want a business card that says that!
Or Molehills to Mountains Maker.
I love the flyby thingy: http://www.ecosign.com/movies/SP_East%20Village%20compressed.mov
I wonder how hard this is too do? (the fly-by)
Heehee, you challenged Rhea to try one – I did ALL FIVE!! MUAH HAHAHAHAAHAHAHAAAA! Feel my power!!
Note to all: compassion for Redneck Diva, she has vagistinkus, and I guess it itches.
Diva! You DID do all five! Nice job. BUT…
Your memes are the only ones I’ve seen that actually sound like fun to do! – but DONT tag me with one a them sumbitches.
Micki: thanks, you sure???
