The meme gods... 7 Random Facts....

This old man tagged me with the 7 random facts meme. As it so subtly suggests in the name I guess it means that we have to reveal 7 facts about ourselves before passing the fun onto someone else... so here goes...

The rules are:

  • Link to the person who tagged you
  • Post the rules here
  • Share 7 random or weird facts about yourself
  • Tag 7 random people at the end of the post, linking to them
  • Leave a comment on their blog so that they know they've been tagged (not anonymously!!)
7 random facts few people know about me:
  1. I can fit my fist in my mouth
  2. I have 4 tattoo's, the first of which I got when I turned 16 and I am likely to get more in the near future
  3. I can still recite the first English and Afrikaans poems I was taught in school
  4. In primary school I played a lead role in Greece and the Sound of Music despite a disturbing inability to hold a note
  5. In my first year in the UK I played the lead in a pantomime despite having no idea what a pantomime was at the time
  6. I am very good at keeping deep dark secrets (which is a good thing since everyone tells me their dark secrets very quickly)
  7. I will be donating my eggs to a fertility clinic at the end of the year before seriously considering tying knots in my tubes or something :-)
So that means that it is up to you guys to take over now... Queenie ; Red ; Tertia ; Wendy ; Twinkies ; Wasted and finally, my friend down-under Baby Amore

Sorry everyone :-) I have so few friends so it has to be you! :-)

Oh, you little wench!!!!

GREAT to hear from you again, though... even if you DID give me more work! Don't you know that I've come to my senses and withdrawn from writing world? No?

Just kidding... unfortunately for all of you, I feel compelled to put fingers to keys. Otherwise I WILL go COMPLETELY bonkers (as opposed to just partially)!

So what up with you and bebes?

I feel the need to disseminate this horrible abuse of the word meme, and what I posted at Hallqs page sufficiently gets across my point, so I'll paste:
Sorry, but you are entirely misdirected about what a 'meme' is. A survey or chain letter or pass-me-on or whatever this is has no relation to the word. In order to not look silly or foolish, you should research terms before using them. You can't make something a meme just by declaring it so, and if this was one, it would be instantly recognized and occur regularly in the social consciousness in various forms. All your base are belong to us and LOLcats are memes, 'list 7 weird things about yourself' is a survey at best, and a piece of unsolicited spam chainmail at worst. Also, a meme can't be 'invented,' a meme just happens. In addition, as this is about the 20th blog I've posted this comment to, it really makes me sad to know that people are such blindly-following, unthinking automatons that they readily repeat things as fact without so much as an inkling of skepticism.
