You know, how as a little kid, when you sometimes watch other kids play a game in a schoolyard... And you hope they'll ask you to play too, but you're not really sure you want to...?
Well, that's how I feel about the EIGHT MEME.
I've seen the meme floating around the blogosphere for a few weeks and thought it looked kind of neat. I sort of wanted to do it, but my name never appeared on a "you're tagged" list. And in those instances when the bloggers say they won't tag people but whoever wants to do it can, well I thought it looked kind of lame if I take it upon myself to do the meme that I wasn't tagged for.
But today, July 4, 2007, I am playing that game called EIGHT MEME, thanks to Elie of Elie's Expositions.
Here are the rules:
Each player lists 8 facts/habits about themselves. The rules of the game are posted at the beginning before those facts/habits are listed.
At the end of the post, the player then tags 8 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know that they have been tagged and asking them to read your blog.
I must admit, though. I will not tag anyone. Many people have done this while others don't like to be put in the position to do a tag. So, if you'd like, you can follow suit with your own list of eight. Don't be the wuss like me, who waited to be "called upon."
1. I am forever singing...especially in our ensuite shower that has amazing acoustics.
2. This is a quirk of mine: I cannot have a large salad bowl in front of me, with the servers on this side of the bowl. I need to put the servers on the far side of the bowl. Somehow I feel they're in my space bubble, if I don't -- like they're crowding me.
3. Even though I studied piano for years and years, I cannot complete any one song by memory.
4. Give me pasta, give me cheese and I am very very pleased!
5. Sometimes I like knowing that I have the power to move people enough with my words or personal messages to make them cry.
6. I don't know how to have a good argument...so I often back down from one.
7. My childish social hangups often still make an appearance in public settings.
8. I'm often disappointed when I make assumptions and expect too much of people.
