Meme Streets

Well, since both virgotex and ellroon have tagged me with this, I guess I better do it – I only have to do it once, right?

1. All right, here are the rules.

2. We have to post these rules before we give you the facts.

3. Players start with eight random facts/habits about themselves.

4. People who are tagged need to write their own blog about their eight things and post these rules.

5. At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog

(For symmetry, shouldn’t there be eight rules?)

Okay, random things…

1. I have been taking pictures since I was 8 or 9. I started out with a cheap Kodak Instamatic, then got my sister’s old Pentax Spotmatic when I was 12. I took Photography (B&W prints) my first two years in high school, and “Media” (color slides) my second two, plus one disastrous photo class in my junior year of college.

2. Some things that are in my apartment: Star Trek Ken & Barbie, a lava lamp, a currently uninflated inflatable loveseat in the shape of the rear half of a pink ’59 Cadillac Biarritz, one PC, four laptops, four external hard drives (~1.5TB total capacity), five digital cameras, 16 GB of flash memory in four different formats, pink bellbottoms, and a blinking rooster-head medallion. This should be considered a representative sampling and not an exhaustive inventory.

3. I ran cross-country for two years in high school, but now I can barely jog two blocks without getting winded.

4. I don’t drive, smoke, drink, or do drugs of any kind. More for practical reasons than moral ones.

5. I love chocolate, but I don’t like chocolate ice cream at all, or even ice cream with chocolate in it. Well, okay, not counting cookie dough or cookies ‘n’ cream…

6. I used to know pi out to 300 decimal places.

7. I have appeared on Saturday Night Live.

8. I once hit Messy Marvin/Ralphie from A Christmas Story in the head with a dress shoe.

Okay, now, who to tag…

1. Bigezbear (Glenn)

2. belledame222 (Fetch Me My Axe)

3. Ol’ Froth (Froth Slosh B’Gosh)

4. oldwhitelady (It’s Morning Somewhere)

5. Sanjay (karmically speaking)

6. P. Drano (Loser’s Guide)

7. four legs good (Plush Life)

8. spiiderweb

    Hey, I wasn’t real thrilled about it either. But I had to find 8 people who hadn’t been tagged already…

  • 4. kyklops  |  June 26th, 2007 at 2:39 am

    I can’t seem to find anyone who hasn’t already been tagged with one meme or another. So many memes, so few friends…

    rough crowd

    pink bellbottoms: yours or the girlfriends’?

  • 6. karmicjay  |  June 26th, 2007 at 9:32 am

    LOL.. I will do this one. But it maybe hard to find 8 who have not been tagged. :-/

  • 7. Eli  |  June 26th, 2007 at 10:12 am

    pink bellbottoms: yours or the girlfriends’?

    Oh, it’s all mine. I also have pants with flowers and unicorns on them, and a blue-and-flourescent-green sportcoat with Indonesian fruit (and bugs) on it.

    I miss your wardrobe.

    I was also tickled that you did include beaning Messy Marvin. When/How on the SNL thing?


  • 9. Eli  |  June 26th, 2007 at 12:46 pm

    I miss your wardrobe.

    You and me both…

    When/How on the SNL thing?

    When I was a little kid (2nd or 3rd grade, IIRC), I was in this NYU guy’s student film. A few years later (81? 82?) he was doing the sound on an SNL fake commercial and got me in as an extra. So if you ever see the “Come on out, America! America is turning gay!” commercial, to the tune of various soda jingles, and you see a 12-year-old kid playing chess in the park with an old man…

  • 10. oldwhitelady  |  June 26th, 2007 at 10:46 pm

    Curse you! You Bastard!

    You appeared on SNL? How and why? Please elaborate…

  • 11. Ruth  |  June 27th, 2007 at 7:10 am

    what was it going around yesterday? I got tagged too, see
    I tagged FeralLiberal, too, who doesn’t have a blog so I told him he could use mine, and he did. All good.

    Anything that has numbered points fills me with dread. (Something that happened in kindergarten). But I’ll try.
