5 (random) favourite things meme

Get this: I made up a meme. Yup, all on my lonesome. Why shouldn't I, I thought? Who are these 'gods of memes' who circulate them around the blogosphere? Why shouldn't a mere mortal such as myself start my own one? Ha!

So here it is. Long may it travel.

I've always had the problem of not being able to pick a favourite. I don't have one favourite movie or one favourite book, or one favourite food. Life's just a bit more complex than that for me. I'm 75% Gemini  - go figure.
So the idea here is that you list 5 items in each category, a favourite 5 - but not necessarily in order of favouriteness - to show the diversity/similarity/hilarity/polarity/ or extreme same-ness of your personal likes.

And then tag 5 peeps to do the same. And feel free to add or subtract categories as you like.
Down with meme imperialism!

Herewith the first 5 (Random) Favourite Things Meme:

yippy for you - that is right you can elevate yourself right up there with the goddesses of memes......

This might just put my brain into a permanent vegetative state, and since you don't tweet (shame on you) you don't know that I'm proofreading a dissertation and that's what that black goo coming out of my ears is all about. Still, black goo never kept me from blogging before (only wine and lambada do).

Thanks for thinking of me!

Seaside Girl said...

Even in the midst of looking for the suitcase (yes I still am) I will answer this tomorrow. Am doubly chuffed that you thought of me cos I now actually know what a meme is (and how to pronounce it) because of you!

And incase I forget tomorrow good luck with the penguin cakes for the weekend...

i have an on-the-go playlist on my blinged out white iPod (which our friends affectionately refer to as the porn pod) which consists of gorillaz "feel good" and beck's "i think i'm in love" and i listen to those two songs over and over and over and over.

the films are a little weird. individually and as a group.

i can totally see the cate blanchett crush. husband's list (we call it people we would kiss if they came through the door right now) includes fox mulder. mine, sadly, are mostly old men.

i'm a little sad not to be tagged, but imagine one of the taggees will tag me. :-)

very good initiative, starting a meme all by yourself. you should really come to blog camp.

WV - craters hmm...

Amanda said...

Great meme. How proud I am to tell people I know the one whoe started this!

julochka said...

ok, i've done it (but scheduled it for tomorrow). i decided i could do it even tho' i'm not tagged since i'm the fairy blogmother and you were my very first follower ever. :-) my crush list will not hold any surprises for you. ;-)

Fi said...
