Dearest…

by in Meme on July 6, 2008

Dearest…

I don’t really know how to tell you this, but I’m in love with your cat. I think I realized it when I quoted Forest Gump and I saw you in your closet sit on salt-beef bucket.

I’m sure you’re frostbitten enough to understand that I get turned on by garbage men.

I’m returning the couch cushions, the pictures from Vegas, and your car to you, but I’ll be keeping the results of that blood-sample as a memento.

You should probably also know that I wWas interviewed about the car you stole and I will haunt you when I’m incarnated as an Eskimo.

Go milk a cow,
ia

That was a tedious meme. Copy after the jump.

Give me concert tickets to…

by in Meme on August 29, 2007

Pick ONE band/artist, and use only TITLES of their songs to answer.

The Band
- Matchbox Twenty

Are you a boy or a girl?
- Last Beautiful Girl

It won’t be the first – heart that you break
It won’t be the last – beautiful girl
The one that you wrecked – won’t take you back
If you were the last beautiful girl in the world

How old are you?
- Damn

This old world well
Don’t it make you wanna think damn
This cold girl well
Don’t she wanna make you scream, damn

Describe yourself:
- Crutch

All you needed was a crutch
One step away from down
I could never be your crutch
I could break you down

How’s life?
- Mad Season

I need you now
Do you think you can cope
You figured me out
I’m a child and I’m hopeless
Bleeding and broken
though I’ve never spoken
I come undone
in this mad season

Where do you live?:
- Rest Stop

She said – while you were sleeping
I was listening to the radio
And wondering what you’re dreaming when
It came to mind that I didn’t care
So I thought – hell if it’s over
I had better end it quick
Or I could lose my nerve
Are you listening – can you hear me
Have you forgotten

What’s your favourite song?
- Hang

Well I always say, it would be good to go away
But if things don’t work out like we think
And there’s nothing there to ease this ache
But if there’s nothing there to make things change
If it’s the same for you, I’ll just hang

Describe your love life
- You Won’t Be Mine

Take yourself out to the curb
Sit and wait
A fool for life
It’s almost like a disease
I know soon you will be

Over the lies, you’ll be strong
You’ll be rich in love and you will carry on
But no – oh no
No you won’t be mine

What are you?
- Bright Lights

Baby, baby, baby when all your love is gone
Who will save me from all I’m up against out in this world
And maybe, maybe, maybe
You’ll find something that’s enough to keep you
But if the bright lights don’t receive you
You should turn yourself around and come on home

What kind of music do you like?
- Black and White People

If it’s just that you’re weak
Can we talk about it
It’s gettin’ so damn creepy
Just nursing this ghost of chance
The fiction, the romance
And the Technicolor dreams
Of black and white people

How are you feeling?
- Disease

I think that I’m sick
But leave me be while my world is coming down on me
You taste like honey, honey
Tell me can I be your honey
Be, be strong
Keep telling myself it that won’t take long till
I’m free of my disease
Yeah well free of my disease
Free of my disease

A few words of wisdom:
- Back 2 Good

Everyone here, is wondering what it’s like to be with
Somebody else
Everyone here’s to blame, everyone here
Gets caught up in the pleasure of the pain, everyone hides
Shades of shame, but looking inside we’re the same, we’re
The same
And we’re all grown now, but we don’t know how
To get it back to good

October 24

by in Meme on June 27, 2007

Here are the rules: You go to http://www.wikipedia.org/ and type in your birthday (only month & day). Then you write down 3 events, 2 births, 1 holiday, and then you tag 5 friends.

3 events

69 – Second Battle of Bedriacum, forces under Antonius Primus, the commander of the Danube armies, loyal to Vespasian, defeat the forces of Emperor Vitellius.

1911 – Orville Wright remained in the air 9 minutes and 45 seconds in a glider at Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina setting a new world record that stood for 10 years

1945 – Founding of the United Nations*

2 births

1632 – Anton van Leeuwenhoek, Dutch microbiologist (d. 1723)

1947 – Kevin Kline, American actor

1 holiday

Take Back Your Time Day

Take Back Your Time Day, October 24, is a project of the Center for Religion, Ethics and Social Policy of Cornell University. In this annual observance, people are encouraged to either take the day off or carve out some time for themselves, preferably spent with friends in congenial surroundings. According to the project, useful and creative work is essential to happiness; however, American life has gotten way out of balance. Producing and consuming more have become the single-minded obsession of the American economy, while other values — strong families and communities, good health and a clean environment, active citizenship and social justice, time for nature and the soul — are increasingly neglected.

(I won’t tag 5 friends.)

* I could file it under 1 holiday but Take Back Your Time Day is a revelation. I better celebrate that on my birthday this year!

Only in the Philippines!

by in Meme on June 14, 2007

Still in line with the nationalistic spirit:

only-in-the-philippines-front

The Rules:
1. Download the scanned front and back of this postcard and resize to fit your blog.
2. Enter your independence day message on the back and post both images on your blog.
3. Title of post should be “Only in the Philippines!”
4. Tag five fellow countrymen.

THIS IS SPARTAAAAAA!!!1111one

by in Meme on April 5, 2007

THIS IS SPARTAAAAAA!!!!!111one

This meme isn’t about me, but it is a meme. And it’s crawling all over the Internet.

I thought I’d list the sites I’ve found so far:

  1. Encyclopedia Dramatica: TONIGHT WE DINE IN HELL (Get your source images here!)
  2. lj/randompictures: THIS. IS. MEME.
  3. PhilWeavers: Frank Miller’s 300
  4. WTFsrsly: 300 HYPE EXCEEDS AAAALLL
  5. Dossier: Les parodies du film 300
  6. CTRL+ALT+DEL: Reservation for One
  7. MSPaint the THIS IS SPARTA guy from 300 in different situations
  8. StumbleUpon sites tagged ‘Sparta’
  9. StumbleUpon sites tagged ’300′

Now I know 99.99% of this meme revolves around Leonidas (Gerard Butler), but Xerxes deserves a bit of the limelight too.
