I am creating a new term called "leme" used to describe any one of the hundreds of lame memes that get passed around the blog world. The below is one of them.

I've been tagged by my dear friend
Classy and Fancy with this one. She got it from none other than Julie "And then the sexiness happened" Gong. Damn the both of you!

Not doing the meme and following the instructions is simply not an option, because everybody knows what happens if you don't: shame falls on your house and all who enter it, your car gets stolen, your penis falls off, blah blah blah.

* * * *
INSTRUCTIONS: Remove the blog in the top spot from the following list and bump everyone up one place. Then add your blog to the bottom slot, like so.

  1. FeistyMnGirl
  2. What Greg Likes
  3. A Blog of a Good Time
  4. Classy & Fancy
  5. [Cherry] Ride
Select five people to tag (Note: Classy already stole most of the original people I would have tagged):
  1. Carrie Bradshaw
  2. ChuckDaddy Express
  3. Kefla
  4. Once Upon a Day (like she doesn't have enough memes to write already)
  5. ReckenRoll
My apologies in advance to all of you (unless of course you like lemes). Without further ado...

What were you doing 10 years ago?
Keepin' it real in Portland. More specifically, I was probably writing speaking points for why Internet Explorer 4 was going to be better than Netscape Navigator 4 was (jealous, I know).

What were you doing 1 year ago?
Trying to figure out how old I was, while also plotting to somehow score free tickets to Madonna.

Five snacks you enjoy:

Nacho Cheese Flavored Combos
Peanut Butter-Filled Pretzels from Trader Joes
Small Children
Sea Monkeys

Five songs that you know all the lyrics to:
Everything's Better with Blue Bonnet on It
Drop Kick Me Jesus Through the Goal Posts of Life
Who's Johnny?
Pac-Man Fever
My Heart Will Go On

Five things you would do if you were a millionaire:
Gold Plated Toilet
Donut of the Week Club
Flat in London
Beach House in Manly
Weekly Anal Bleaching

Five bad habits:
Junk Food
Nail Biting
Blogging At Work
Not Keeping in Contact With People

Five things you like doing:
Not Responding to Lemes

Five things you would never wear again:
I can't think of a single thing I'd never wear again, given the right situation

Five favorite toys:
Aqua Man Doll
Star Wars Figures

I'm digging your new term!

And I love lemes because it means I don't have to think about a post! I've already made one tangent from my 100 list but I think I can squeeze another digression in there ...


Mr. Shain said...

i like that you opted for the weekly anal bleach, but not the brazilian.... interesting.

blythe said...

are you kidding? i love lemes! but i don't think you took this one very seriously. no one eats nacho cheese flavored combos on purpose.

Catherinette Singleton said...

I love your new term. It is an excellent way to describe memes. I'm also a fan of steme (stupid meme) and geme (gay meme).

The [Cherry] Ride said...

Airam - glad you can fit another one in. And you're right - it means you don;t have to think of a post on your own that day.

Mr. Shain - damn! I forgot about the brazilian!

Blythe - so not true! I took it very seriously - it took me about 10 minutes to finish that post. And Nacho Cheese Combos are seriously the best snack on the planet.

Mr. Shain and Blythe - you both were #6 and #7 on my list to send this leme to. You won't be so lucky next time.

BJ (can i call you that, Ms. Jones?) - I think I probably have to do a geme at some point.

Julie_Gong said...

um, nacho cheese flavored combos might be the best thing combos ever did. besides just creating combos in the first place.

NamesAreHardToPick said...

It's funny, I would think nail biting would lower the appetite, yet junk food made it to the top of the list.

ReckenRoll said...

Have you considered the wrath of ReckenRoll for being dragged into a leme vs. the actual curse of the leme itself?

You've been warned.

lp said...

The little store here in my building usually has Nacho Cheese Combos. Along with its absence of booze, Indiana probably doesn't have those either, so if you need a fix for our upcoming lake day get away, just let me know :).

blythe said...

combos no. bugles yes!

classyandfancy said...

Hey, I'm not lame! With this leme you were able to write about donuts!

BTW have you ever heard of a boyzilian?

Jenny! said...

Don't you think you should splurge and bleach your asshole even though your not a millionair???

egan said...

I absolutely hate memes, but that's a story for another day. Great new word, "leme".

Mood Indigo said...

I admit I read it first as "lem-mee" - like "leme have it" or something. Now that I read at as a leme with a play on lame I think it's fabulous and I predict it will be in the general blogging lexicon in no time! (if this comment makes no sense I blame jet lag)
