One thing I hope dies in 2007

Hugh Macleod cracks me up. His post about “five things you don’t know about me” was the ultimate way to stop this stupid meme that seems to be continuing to travel through blogs. Although now people are posting what kind of superhero are you. Sigh. So, I’m not optimistic that these kinds of “blog questions” will end in 2007. I wish they would, though.

Here’s his answers — you have to understand British humor, methinks to get why this is funny:

five things you don’t know about me

1. I dislike you intensely.

2. I love it when bad things happen to you.

3. When your name is mentioned I immediately try to change the subject.

4. I wouldn’t read your blog if you paid me.

5. If we were trapped on a desert island together I would kill myself.

  2. Shelley: you seem to like attacking people who are just having grins and giggles (like the Blogher conference) just as often as I do. In fact, I was just having a grins and giggles at the beginning of this post. But, I guess, my reality doesn’t matter as much as those of other bloggers to you.

    But, I’m not happy you won’t be back here. I like your point of view cause it often is different than mine and it gets me to question my own point of view, which almost always is a healthy thing. I do subscribe to your blog, though, so I’m sure I’ll continue to get a healthy dose of your reality.

  4. PS and one bit of good news for you both that will make you even happier and that’s that I doubt I’ll be back here for a good long while. There a Happy New Year present for you both.

  6. Well, good for you then Robert. Then perhaps the next time when you want to make fun of folks who are just having grins and giggles, you’ll remind yourself about how happy you are, and how much you do have compared to most, and just. Let. It. Slide.

    Hugh, someday we’ll get you to a point where you can have a discussion with words instead of pictures. Maybe therapy? Perhaps big lined paper instead? It worked for my niece when she was five, so I have hopes for you.

  8. This meme game never smelled A-list to me; for one thing, I got tagged early and often, and I’m Z-list. For another, well, a chain letter is a chain letter, even if it’s about you.

    If people want to learn about me they can straight-out ask me questions. I vastly prefer that to some “here, play this by invitation only chain letter game”.
