So Says I

Kids, I am just beat. I did a lot more running kids to and from soccer practice and the baseball fields than I wanted to, and way less of the melting into my couch than I had planned. Now, I just need to go to bed.

First though, I wanted to address the subject of memes. I've been tagged for a lot of memes lately, and I think it's very nice of people to think about me. The problem comes because I am very lame in general. I'm sure that's no news to you. It's not that I think I'm too punk rock to participate, I really am just that lame. I actually already did a meme like Tara's a few months ago, and my random answers to that were so boring, you will all thank me for not repeating any part of it.

Lynnster's meme asked me to list five favorite restaurants in my town. Unfortunately, I don't eat out that much, and right off the top of my head, all I could think was, "Uh, I really like BBQ." One of the best BBQ places around here is called Jim's Rib Haven, but it's in the Quad Cities. Then I heard my bed calling me and I totally lost my train of thought.

So, I want to apologize for not really doing the memes. I'm not so great under pressure. In general, people like me much better, when they keep their expectations very, very low.

The Memes have been rampant lately. We should really start a Meme awareness campaign to fight this growing dilemma.

I only do them once in a while. I am on your side, I am boring. I usually include my little known facts into posts. I am on the Killer's side, meme awareness could be helpful.

You can't please everybody - you gots to please yourself

Margaret said...

sorry your couch melting program didn't work out like you'd planned

Lynnster said...

Oh, not a problem. I don't participate in most of the memes that get thrown my way either, only the occasional one I find really interesting - and I much prefer to go out to eat than have to cook or eat at home so I liked this one. No biggie - I will remember Jim's Rib Haven if I'm ever up that way! With my sister in Nebraska now there's no telling where I could end up at any given time. ;)

I'm not very good at memes either.

I'm not against memes totally. I just don't feel they're for me. Get your rest. It's better than meme-ing anyway.

I agree with Killer.. we must do something to combat this now go and sleep..

Yah, right! Ms. multitasker extrodinaire. If i was listing people to be emulated, you'd be at the top of the list.

I think you're right. Maybe we can get some funding.


Sometimes, I'll do them, but usually, I just can't think of any clever answers.


I love it how you just go ahead and speak in Ricky Nelson lyrics.


Not half as sorry as I am.


If I had more money, I would have been able to do your meme some justice.


I can't believe there's something you're not good at.


Thanks. I'm really going to try to get some rest in the next few weeks here.


Thanks. I am lame, though.

Rest, I will.


That's so nice of you. But as Charles Barkley said, "I am not a role model."..Didn't he say something like that?
