06/30/2005: Yet Another BlogMeme....
Well, Stan tagged me, so I have to play along. Because I'm a meme whore, ok? Get over it, or die with it on your mind.
The ChildHood Meme: What 5 Things Do You Miss About Your Childhood?
This meme requires you to do the following things:
Remove the blog at #1 from the following list and bump every one up one place. Add your blog’s name in the #5 spot. Link to each of the other blogs for the desired cross pollination effect.
2. News to Hughes
4. Our Obligatory Blog
5. Dark Bilious Vapors
When your blog reaches the top of the list, you will receive 3,125 different childhoods to choose from. Note, do not break the chain. Myron Bichelmeyer of Culver City, California broke the chain and had to relive his own pathetic childhood. [Obligatory Disclaimer: I am, of course, a thoroughgoing skeptic, and don't take any of that seriously, and I don't expect you to either. But hey, this is a parody of a chain letter, so we'll just play along, OK?]
Next: select new friends to add to the pollen count.
- Bryan, because he's good about cross linking to me on general principle.
- Big Stupid Tommy, because I haven't seen this cross his blog, and because he inflicted a blogmeme on me Once Upon A Time
- Gooseneck, because he hasn't updated his blog in just about forever, and he needs an excuse to do so
- Mr. Mike, because he needs to take his mind off local politics for a few minutes ;-)
- and Dr. Abby, because being the daughter of her Dr. Dad, I'll bet she had a pretty neat childhood.
1. Lack of responsibility. Having to be an adult and actually take responsibility for things sucks.
2. Recess. You should be able to break your day up and just go out and play a couple times a day.
3. The joy of Christmas. For me, specifically, that wasn't the joy of giving, it was the joy of getting. Screw the joy of giving; the only disappointment of Christmas morning was that every present under the tree didn't say "To Len" on it....
4. Saturday morning cartoons. I'm probably just living in the past, but they were better then.
5. Summer vacations. Why can't the whole world just take June, July and August off, play sandlot baseball and generally just screw around? Somehow, I think things would be a lot better in the world if we got our priorities straight like that.
