Eeny Meeny Miney Meme

UPDATE: It appears JustMarie also tagged me for a similar meme back on the 20th and I didn't see it (sorry, doll).

Lauowolf tagged me for this crazy 7-or-8 Things About Me meme everyone’s being infected by enjoying so much. Although I can easily become bored of relentless meme-ing, I find memes to be far less annoying than the QotD since memes generally inspire more thought and better posts. For example, I quite enjoyed learning that Lauowolf’s vocabulary, like mine, cannot be attached to any particular part of the country; we’re both well-rounded slang-slingers!

Anyway, I’m going to cheat. But only because I am hell of busy today and have partially answered this query already.

Please begin by reading this. That’ll give you your first five, though I realize they can’t count for a full five because of bizarre and undocumented internet meme rules. So, here are five more:

1. I used to have hair down to my waist and played guitar in a Metallica cover band. This was back when Metallica didn’t totally suck balls, mind you. Our best song was Fade to Black. Welcome Home (Sanitarium) was a close second, though we did a pretty bad-ass version of Creeping Death, as well.

2. I have no children of my own and probably never will. Amanda and Zach are Karin’s kids from her previous marriage. This is the only time I will admit to this without being directly asked about it, because I honestly wish they were my own kids. I love them that much.

3. I ate squid once and really liked it. (Please don’t tell Cthulhu.) This is interesting only because I truly despise seafood.

4. I cannot, for the life of me, seem to memorize how to spell “hors d’oeuvres”. I had to look it up just to make this post.

5. I have a terrible habit of repeating myself. I’ll say something and then immediately repeat it, only with different wording. I usually have to say things several times in varying ways before I’m satisfied I’ve made myself clear. As soon as an idea has left my mouth, a new version of the same idea immediately follows. I can’t seem to say anything without saying it again (and again). In other words, I tend to habitually reiterate my ideas multiple times.

Now comes the hard part about these meme dealies: choosing others to participate. This is tough because 1) you don’t necessarily know who has already been tagged and 2) a lot of people loathe memes. So, that being said, if I list you and you’ve already done this or would rather dip your face in boiling water than participate, I will not be insulted if you ignore the call.

I wouldn’t mind reading some interesting facts about (in no particular order):





Miss Scotch


Evil Wombat Queen

Miz Blo

By the way, if you weren't listed here, please do not feel insulted. I still love you. It's just that I'm only supposed to pick eight people and I did it sort of randomly. *sigh*

    Re: #5. I do that, too. It annoys even myself, yet I continue. It drives my laconic husband to drink.

  2. lauowolf says:

    I do the repeating thing too.Drives my kid mad, so I'm working on it.But mostly I don't notice until she's wincing.

  3. Jay says:

    Um….someone would like a word with you.

  4. Lurkertype says:

    I am totally #5. I mean, I do #5 too.

  5. Kirk says:

    "Um….someone would like a word with you."You narc.

  6. arbed says:

    I enjoyed (hmmm, maybe not the best choice of words, but you know what I mean) both lists. I admire that you are so open and loving, and can admit to eating the relatives of a big scary monster.

  7. Emmi says:

    Ditto to 5. Me too. Me three. Me four….. geez we're in good company!

  8. Jay says:

    Hey. I know what side my bread is doomed on.

    For what it's worth, you can tell just how proud you are of Panda and how much you love her every time you blog about family. I had no idea they weren't "your kids" which is in itself silly, because they are yours. You guys are a family, and to be honest I'm a little envious! Your family kicks ass!

    Have you ever tried dry squid,it's delicious,one of my favorite snacks,if you find it,please let me know,where.The one I like,comes from Korea.I'm glad you helped me understand ,why, I keep repeating,myself,I'm getting really tired of it,especially the third repeating ,is ,to me , kind of over the top.Plus I'm too busy these days to waste time, repeating myself.

  11. AmyH says:

    I'm with you on #4 and #5. I think #2 is really touching. Those kids are very lucky to have you in their lives.

  12. Lauri says:

    These are great! :)As for the repeating, I think it's because we realize how easy it is to MIScommunicate and we are trying to prevent that from happening. Getting the simplest ideas across to another person is often a tricky proposition. We just want to get it right!
