I was away from my blog reading (i.e., Bloglines) for a little while. Back and discover I’ve been tagged for a thingy. Is this a meme? Seems like a meme can mean just something that everyone is talking about, or one of these survey type things. I’ll see what I can do. (It started, as far as I know, at Ma Vie Bucolique.)


Anyway, my instructions were to make a list of fours (most categories supplied) and create a title with a play on the word four. I don’t know if these are supposed to be four things one likes, doesn’t like, feels represent one, have a significant role in one’s life, are the first things one thinks of (I can’t even think of four chairs without great effort). I was puzzling over the point of this… does it interest you, dear reader, to know that I seem to like silly movies and serious books? Ahh, but it does allow one to plop a lot of links in one post! Just don’t anybody say I’m a party pooper.

The “gruesome tag part,” as Janice on
Cape Ann so aptly put it. Thanks you guys. I’m going to cheat, and re-tag some who have not yet posted this silliness on their sites. Mostly cuz I’m a lame blogger and don’t have relationships with bloggers I don’t know in the flesh and blood world. Well maybe someday.

    Hey Sandy! Thanks for being a sport with this. And yeah, I have heard it called a “meme.” I saw it on some other blog and I thought it was fun idea. Plus, I love to make lists!

    Chairs are easy. Especially if you click on the “2 ancient rockers.”

  3. This should up your ratings a bit–I’ve subscribed to your blog with Bloglines and I’ve linked to your rapier-like wit in my personal blogroll at my blog.

    And Meredith is right. Who doesn’t like lists?
