Yo, mom: I am not entirely sure what the folks at "Sunday Stealing" think they mean by "meme." Do you have an idea? No snark. I just don't get how that list or anything on it constitutes what I think of when I think of meme. Meme (imho) is shorthand, iirc, for the older, more arcane notion of a 'sememe,' or a unit of meaning. I struggled through the list (though I shan't replicate my efforts) and for the live of me, I couldn't find any 'meaning' in it.

Just asking, yaknow?

Hmmmm....you just had to make me think this early in the morning. You may have a point there. I just picked them to use as a filler till the coffee does its wonders - and the brain cells become unglued. I'll try and sort through and find some better ones. Have a great day Woody!

What happened to "R"???

themom said...

Jane Ann: I just copied the damn thing - wow, you are observant. Now you've got me thinking. I went back and checked and NOPE no "R". Wonder why? I must investigate further. :)

Jane Ann said...

HA... Upon a re-look the "r" questions are there... UNDER "Q" but not seperated...

themom said...

OK - fixed that problem JA. It was beginning to drive me up the wall. A little OCD kicked in and I just had to correct the problem. Thanks.

Grandpa Eddie said...

That's pretty good, may be back later to swipe it. Loved some of your answers.

John said...

What'duya mean whether you like it or not! I like to read these things. It is a great way of getting to know you without asking probing questions! I'm glad you didn't just say short yes or no answers!

I see you lost a best friend. So did I in 1994. It is the saddest thing. No one can take their place.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
