Meme'd Was I

Here are the rules (as they were explained to me).

1. Let others know who tagged you.

a4g and DPT, this means you!

I was tagged by JimmyB on another score. We will see if I get
around to that one.

2. Players start with 8 random facts about themselves.

Look out below.

3. Those who are tagged should post these rules and their 8 random facts.

Consider yourself served.

4. Players should tag 8 other people and notify them they have been tagged.
(Take note of the should part.)

Eight pseudo-random facts:

* Every time my neighbor mentions the uncut part of my lawn, I need to generate a fresh rationalization. The last one outlined my desire to observe the different seeding patterns of the wild grasses of the northeastern region of North America. The one before that was my intention to increase the rooting strength of the green cover, by allowing it to create more topside demand for water and nutrition. Weeds are wonderful examples of Darwinian tenacity. There is one particularly hardy fellow, right in the center of my property. I scalped him down to the dirt with a nylon cyclone. Now he is back, stronger than ever. Why grow wimpy, expensive grass, when there are indestructible alternatives?

* I have a weird allergy to catfish. I love the taste. It's the sudden violent nausea and subsequent penitent prostration to the god of porcelain that has smitten this item from my future menu choices.

* I go through more diet ginger ale in a week, than most people go through in a year.

* I never watch broadcast television. I have a DVD collection sufficient to keep me entertained. The best television shows are commercial free on DVD. I don't need to see any Moron.org political ads either.

* If it weren't for a good paying job and the occasional blogging opportunity, all of the atoms in my body would find more interesting compounds to hang around with.

* I am fast becoming one of the few remaining people alive today, who know that Calgon is
an ancient Chinese secret.

* I keep having this recurring dream that Winston Churchill's corpse runs for John Kerry's seat and wins it, changing the balance of the Senate. If Strom Thurmond can do it, why not?

* I once bought a $145 Japanese calculator for $15 bucks from a German tourist.
(just kidding). I can still use a slide rule. Pickett model N 200-ES.

1. Uber of PJ Maximum fame.
2. Wyatt of SYLG.
3. JimmyB, The Conservative UAW Guy (What goes around comes around.)
4. RT of Public Ponderings.(cough)

8. Fitch of Radioactive Liberty.

Hey Insolu,

Could you press "=" on that calculator and let me know what it says? I've been wondering for 19 years.

RT said...

I think I did that meme a week ago or so...


Insolublog said...

a4g, That means I would have to go out and buy a battery. Geez. I'll get back to you on that one.

RT - Shhhh. Can't I just retroactively tag you? It's the same content anyway.

I suppose now that I've been tagged twice, and one of those times by the great and wise insolumaster, I'll have to break down and do the meme.

Don't stay gone so long this time.

Insolublog said...

As always FIAR, I am humbled by your praise and good humor.

Good stuff, and... Is it just me or do these memes seem suspiciously fun after a lengthy bloggy-hiatus? Like, it used to be "Oh Gadd, another one?" while now it's, "Oooo... pick me, pick me!" haha

It has something to do with the link love and the mildly stimulating elbow in the ribs.
