JAT at Faith 2.0 tagged me in a meme. Now this is an unlikely tag in that I never took him to be the type to play along. I have to admit that I am wondering if in fact he thinks so poorly of my comments on his blog that I seemed a likely target for this. But since everybody else seems to be playing along, I guess I will too.

The Rules:

  1. Players start with 8 random facts about themselves.
  2. Those who are tagged should post these rules and their 8 random facts.
  3. Players should tag 8 other people and notify them they have been tagged.

1. I think being asked to play a meme is a bit like the kid at church selling two square feet of wrapping paper for $20. It is to support his school (supposedly). Not buying makes you seem rude.

2. I am rude. (ok, I hear some of you saying that’s not random and is well known)

3. I have raced at the Memphis Motorsports Park (drag racing)

4. I can’t lick my elbow.

5. I can still remember eating chocolate covered ants at the Mid-South Fair when I was young.

6. Messy doesn’t even begin to describe my office.

7. I was president of the Student Government when I was a senior in High School. I ruled over….nothing. We only met the one time to take a picture for the annual.

8. I know at least one of you who will try to lick your elbow.

9. just so I can break the rules, we are still adopting.  The wait from China just keeps growing and growing.

In case you can’t tell, I find this a very difficult exercise.

Oops, I forgot to tag anyone. so, if you want to play along, say so in a comment and I promise I will come read and comment. Something witty of course.

And since Dee has already asked before I even updated. A meme is :An Internet meme is a piece of digital content that spreads rapidly, widely, and organically from person to person on the Internet. The term is a reference to the memes as virus-like self-replicating packet of information. So says Wikipedia…so it has to be correct.

    You and me both. I thought the very same thing when John Alan tagged me, Tommy! How funny. And I did it, too, even though I hate playing these. Just a big sucker, me. Especially for the younger guys.

    I have a question for all of you brilliant people out there. What on earth does “meme” mean, anyway? Is it the initials for something or just “me . . . me” as in I want to do that, or what? I’ve seen the word around the blogs forever and have no clue what it is. Please advise, someone.

    Thanks, Tommy! Dee

    Chocolate covered ants?

    I always enjoy tricking some poor soul into trying calf frys at the fair. It is really good when they are liking them then want to puke when they find out.
