We're the meme, you and me

Andrew has tagged me with a meme and I've decided to comply because, after the drama of my previous post, I'm too tired to be contrary. I've used it all up.

Here are the rules:

1) Put the link of the person who tagged you on your blog.
2) Write the rules.
3) Mention 6 things or habits of no real importance about you.
4) Tag 6 persons adding their links directly.
5) Alert the persons that you tagged them.

Well, 400 posts on and, much like the aforementioned Gooner, I've probably revealed everything there is to know about myself. Except...

a) I can't read. Or, indeed, write. I'm a complete illiterate. I use voice recognition technology to write this blog.

b) I was considered for the role of Billy in emotive drama 'Kramer Vs Kramer.' I got down to the last five but lost out because I wasn't American, blonde or born at the time.

c) I wrote a novel when I was in secondary school. It was 50 copybook pages long. I'd like to explain how I did it, being an illiterate dunce, but I won't.

d) I'm afeared of mice. I enjoy spiders.

e) I have just eaten my first ever vegetarian burger. It was actually quite tasty. I used Chef ketchup instead of Heinz but I'd prefer if nobody judged me for this.

f) I made up the bit about 'voice recognition,' but I genuinely have no clue when it comes to the most basic HTML. Hence this post is taking fucking ages when I usually knock one out in seventeen seconds. Oik.

Right, who to tag?

First of all, it's going to be Flann because he has impressed me among the new breed.

Next, I'm going all the way to Red Leeroy because he's going to need something to concentrate the mind come Monday morning. Also, it will distract from his impending nuptials.

Maxi Cane simply must.

Holemaster's going to make a fine fist of this one. I can feel it.

Sarah is my penultimate choice because her London stylings have been impressively, eh, wrote.

Finally, NaRocRoc because it might just be rude not to.

You mean I get to talk about nothing but me?

I couldn't.

Oh, alright then.

Red Leeroy said...

hmm, my first meme, well ok then, but if you ever....and I mean EVER use chef again that'll be the end of it.

Radge said...

Maxi Cane - That's the spirit.

Red - Noted. I'm sorry. The shame.

Holemaster said...

I'll be all over this tomorrow.

NaRocRoc said...

You don't call, you don't write, rarely send flowers anymore. And now this?

And I still don't know how to pronounce meme.

But fuck it, why not.

Radge said...

(Whispers) NaRocRoc, please, not in front of the others.

It rhymes with theme, I think.

Holemaster said...

Oh yeah Radge, bullet pointing with letters when it's six points is just being awkward.

Radge said...

Holemaster - I linked to you, thereby conferring on you my readership which, as everyone knows, is legion. In short, ehm, I've lost my train of thought...

Meadow said...

Ah, so meme rhymes with theme. I really though it was pronounced me-me. Cos it's all about the me-me. Okay, that's good to know as I power up my voice recognition programme.

And, yes, I suspected as much.

Veggie burger... drool...

Radge said...

Meadow - They were stolen, made them all the tastier.

For the record, I sprayed Donegal Catch hake fish on my keyboard upon reading (b).

I'll never get that fish back Radge, it's gone forever.

Terence McDanger said...

I wasn't eating it or anything, I always keep a supersoaker full of seafood beside the laptop.

Just a little addendum to the previous there.

Carry on.

Radge said...

Terence - Nothin' wrong with a bit of hake. Carry on.
