10 thoughts on “Meme machine”

  1. Wooo… think I might have done some­thing like this already, sev­er­al months ago… but you can’t keep a good meme down, so I’ll have a think.

    btw, I also had an addic­tion to the Who nov­el­isa­tions, but man­aged to shake it off by the time Peter Davison came into view. But be fair, Ian — Mastermind is much harder when you’re in the chair.

  2. I didn’t mind Peter Davidson, but couldn’t bloody stand Colin Baker and all that ‘Trial of a Time Lord’ malar­key.

    OK, so I wasn’t in the chair, but he didn’t know that the core of the ice plan­et Spiridon was made of ice. I mean, come on.

  3. Thanks for tag­ging me, Ian — have pos­ted my five things over on the pootle and rat blog!

  4. Jeez, Ian, I nev­er thought you’d do it! I thought you were far too grand. Bonnie Writes totally ignored me when I tagged her on it (but I did achieve suc­cess with Debra’s 10 year old daugh­ter, such is life).

    I can’t believe any­one actu­ally reads those Dr Who books. In fact I didn’t even know there were such things until my girls evolved a C Eccleston fol­lowed by Barty Crouch Jr (you know who I mean) even more ser­i­ous crush —- and they got some of the books on a 3 for 2 offer, read a chapter and nev­er opened them again.

    But prob­ably the ones they tried were “mod­ern” com­pared with the ones you allude to in your post? (said she, des­per­ately).

  5. Maxine, I’m totally up for some­thing that gets me away from the nov­el! As for all those nov­el­isa­tions, I’ve got shelves full of them. It breaks my heart that I just can’t read them these days, but I like have as many books that I’ve read as pos­sible on the shelf…BTW, they’re mostly Target ori­gin­als, and I don’t have much past 1989…

  6. Gosh this meme really has worked it’s way around since Sharon J star­ted it.
    I am par­tic­u­larly impressed by num­ber 5 — see­ing as I was in love with the beau­ti­ful Danny LaRusso for most of my youth.
    And — until this very moment I had for­got­ten about him!
    I am so fickle!

  7. It’s funny to think that, at the time, the act­or who played Danny was in his early fifties or some­thing.

  8. ah hah! this is where it ori­gin­ated!

    i don’t really get it, you guys are blog­gers and authors, and you still do a five things about me meme!

    isn’t it enough that you keep a blog about you, you also need to be spe­cific­ally numer­ic­al about you? 😀

    hello, Dr. Ian!

  9. Thanks for your com­ment, Treespotter. I actu­ally got memed by Debra Hamel, so you can blame her for start­ing it…

  10. i’m sure we can track it down all the way to Mr. Dawkins.

    that’s okay, it allows the selfish me to come out (i’m tagged by Tim).

    always a good thing, me.
