It’s time to catch up with Threadless and their wondrous wearables. It’s also time to catch up with internet memes.
The image adorns a new Threadless shirt, Three Keyboard Cat Moon, that combines the Three Wolf Moon and Keyboard Cat memes.
That leaves me one meme short of a full post, or at least, one meme short of the promise in the title. Let’s go with Rickrolling, but let’s bring it up to date by mashing it up.
I started on this about a month ago, so it’s time I posted items 6-10 on my list of 25 random things.
- Astral Weeks is my favorite album…
- … but I intend to avoid Hollywood remake.
- I subscribe to the open source/creative commons notion that it’s good for people to use other people’s words, pictures, etc., provided they engage in attribution and other forms of goodness. That leads neatly into the next item, which is a quote from Campbell‘s 25.
- “I’m absolutely terrible at keeping in touch with people. Really terrible. And it’s only gotten worse since my daughter was born.”
- I expect to post items 11-15 of my list of 25 some time this month.
I hereby sort of cave to the Facebook “25 Random Things About Me” meme/chain letter. Sort of, because I’m not going to tag anyone else with it, because I intend to blog five things on five consecutive days, and because I might not carry through with that intention. Here goes…
- I was born in a year of the dog, as was my son.
- I am a Capricorn, as is my daughter; but of course, we Capricorns don’t believe in this astrology nonsense.
- One of my favorite recipes is Thai fried rice, adapted from a book by a Brit TV chef in his book on Australia.
- I am very forgetful.
- My Myers-Briggs type is INFP; hence my prayer is “God, help me to finish everything I sta…”
I believe that:
This meme was inflicted upon me by Constantine. I in turn inflict it on: Nicholas, Justin, who recently blogged about a bout of blogger’s block, and… I seem to have meme-inflictors block, so, dear reader, if you want to consider yourself tagged with this meme by me, please do so.
I’ve been tagged by Jen to do the 123 meme, which goes like this:
1. Pick up the book nearest you with at least 123 pages. (No cheating!)
2. Turn to page 123.
3. Count the first five sentences.
4. Post the next three sentences.
5. Tag five other bloggers.
Let’s see, the book nearest me now is the same one that was nearest me when I read Jen’s post: Intern: A Doctor’s Initiation. The three sentences are as follows.
Not calling backup, I quickly learned, was considered a sign of strength, and for an intern there was nothing more flattering than to be considered “strong.” Once, I made the mistake of calling a third-year resident at her apartment in the middle of the night to ask for help performing a spinal tap. She roared at me on the phone for not taking care of the procedure earlier, before she came on duty at 10:00 p.m.
The five tagees are as follows: Brian, Constantine, Jonathan, Liz, Nicholas. I predict that 2.5 of the 5 will go for it.
