Meme Madness

Despite the rapidly plummeting quality of things around these parts, people are talking about us (and asking us to do things). The lovely Red over at What I Like About the Universe tagged me to complete this meme, and as a complete people pleaser, I just couldn't say no. It's called "One Wonders" and I'm meant to reply to the words provided with the first thing that pops into my head (I guess. The rules are not very clear). Here goes:

1. Clothes: I like 'em. They are fun. When purchasing and dressing, I usually ask myself, "What would Stacey and Clinton say?" This works about 95% of the time. The other 5%? I'm a hot tranny mess.

Furniture: Mostly Ikea. What would we do without Ikea?

Sweet: I make a terrific tiramisu.

City: US: Chicago; International: Frankfurt

Drink: Guinness. It's good for you!

6. Music: Anything I can sing along to.

TV Series: My So-Called Life

8. Film: Pulp Fiction

Workout: Walking Torrey Pines on my lunch break.

Pastries: I try to avoid them, but madelines can be a weakness.

Coffee: Yes please.

We were also presented with the award above from the fabulous Malcolm at Pop Culture Dish. The Brilliante Weblog award is so prestigious, I'd never heard of it before. We are supposed to award 7 other blogs with this award, who will then award 7 other blogs, and so on (read the actual "rules" here). I can't decide on 7 so I'm just gonna pick one lucky lady to complete both these memes (or not. Up to her, really). And the winner is...

Danielle over at Don't Stop Believin'! New to the blogger scene, Danielle and Liz are old friends. Danielle loves San Diego and named her blog after a Journey song...so, obviously, she is awesome. Go check her out and congratulate her on her big win.

And thanks to Malcolm and Red for providing me something to post about. You two are the best.

New to the blogging world is right, seeing as how I accidentally deleted my original comment...

Thanks for choosing me to complete the list, I am truly honored =) I accept your mission and will complete it posthaste.

I still don't get what a "meme" is. Wikipedia was no help. Does this mean I have to turn in my blogging license?

Red said...

It's like a chain-post. I don't know what the term "meme" really means though.

ha ha... I thought I was the only one who didn't know what it meant. At least we're in agreement on that! Speaking of being in agreement: Ikea furniture is the BEST!, I love love LOVE tiramisu and have NEVER made one, Chicago is your "city?" Awww, And O! M! G! Don't you miss My So-Called Life? We ALL could use more Jared Leto in our lives...(sigh.)

I should really start an award called Herpes, and give it to all the fine ladies.

I assume meme comes from the fact that it's so narcissistic, you have to say "me" twice. Hence, I'm no good at them, because who can talk about themselves that much?

Ha ha ha ha ha!

GitW is definitely award-worthy. I'm sorry, did I say GitW? I meant LBTYB.

A "hot tranny mess"? This sounds like the best cocktail ever.

Liz said...

Someone has to have invented a drink called The Hot Tranny Mess by now. If not, I plan to get cracking on it this weekend.

Attention, class!

A meme (pronounced "meam") is a self-propagating viral bit of pop culture. Examples are chain letters, catch phrases, internet quizzes, and lolcats. The concept of memes came about as a cultural counterpart to Darwin's theory, i.e. they would evolve and change, and the best would thrive while the worst would die off.

I now return you to your regularly scheduled time wasting.

You're Welcome.

Dude, people who live without Ikea are like a third world country. It's not right, truly!
