Tagged: Two Memes

As is usual, I got hit by the "you read it so you have to do it" tagging that goes on out there. Curses.

I was thinking about these last night. Well, not really thinking about my answers or anything, but the word "Meme" which was apparently "invented" by a smarty pants waaaay back in the dim, distant age of 1976. How do you invent a word? I mean, I use nonsense words all the time, such as Buggeration and, er, others that escape me. Will I one day get a Wiki page devoted to me for my phrases coined?

See that random tangent. And another thing that I laid there thinking about, was hour to pronounce it. Now, I could have popped onto Wikipedia or Dictionary.com (yes I have it bookmarked - I play scrabble online!) via the mobile, but didn't. I've always pronounced the word as it's written. ME-ME. But then thought i could be MY-MY or MEEM (rhymes with deem) or MEMS (sounding like hems)... My first task this morning when I got up at the unseemingly hour of 0545 on a Saturday was to look it up...

Meme #1

I'd like to say "clothes" but who knows.

7. Where's your ex-girlfriend/boyfriend at?
Working in Manchester or Liverpool I think.

If you mean by punching myself in the nads, probably.

Yesterday afternoon.
