Touched by a Weirsdo

Weirsdo tagged me for a meme, an honor I've avoided until now. I want a kiss from Pansi for doing this. Please no-one feel obligated to follow, I'm only doing it to prove my love for a plastic doll.

See, Pansi, that wasn't so bad was it?

Sar said...

Thanks, Doug! Seriously, it was pretty cool to take the stroll down memory lane. It's up if you want to check it out:

A wonderful job and a great contrast with my jaundiced look back. I recommend it to anyone who just read mine.

Actually, we have a meme of sorts going on my site this week--a politico-poetry slam.

For the bongo-smacking beatnik in all of us...

Doug said...

Gabriel, thank you for nuturing the too-often neglected inner bongo-smacking beatnik in us all. And thanks to the mouse in your pocket ;-)

Sar said...

Thanks, Doug. Though I think it's pretty neat how you fashioned yours in accordance with your site. Bierce would be proud!

Tan Lucy Pez said...

Good job on the MEME. I admire that way you handled it.

Doug said...

Sar and Tan Lucy, thanks to both of you. By the way, Sar I admired how you handled the tagging. If someone I can't say no to tags me again, I'll handle it like that.

karma said...

hey thanks. i don't know how to bump anyone off! may i say it here? marbles, evenings out with my family, whipping the girls in my starchy convent school, discovering boys wanted parts of me i didn't know i had, reading comics

pia said...

Will do it tomorrow. Does look like fun. Am with Karma re the instructions about bumping--some food and a good night's sleep might change that though

Doug said...

Karma a perfect answer and I can't complain about your leaving it here because...

Pia, when you tagged me I left my answer on your blog. Feel free to do this as formally or informally or not at all as you wish.

Thanks to both of you and Sar for your indulgence.

When you were in school I bet you did your book report on the dictionary and thesaurus. Did you see the movie version? I bet you went to see it fifty times!

Doug said...

I didn't go to school, Icy. Why do you think I spend all day making up meanings. I'm Sisyphus to the pantheon on Mount Nerd. Stay in school, young lady.

By the way, any sissy-fuss jokes and someone gets a boot up the butt.
