SO I LIED ABOUT THE MEMES (with a twist)

I was just saying that I’m not going to make a habit of posting memes then "barefoot mistress" posted this and made a liar of me. The answers were a bit much to post as a comment and it is such a shit hot meme that I couldn’t resist. Before I go any further I should explain that as I broke my MP3 player recently I used winamp on my computer in shuffle mode. I have 40GB of music and video files on my PC including my kid’s and student’s choices in AT LEAST 4 different languages so it was a rather strange and interesting experiment. I swear my answers have not been tweaked.

{The Twist- answers in green are what I would have put if I'd cheated}

Grab your Ipod or Mp3 Player, set it to shuffle and start asking it these questions:

Lol..Daddy cool! that was cool

This is a very witty catechism if I may call it that!

& no dear, you sould not be ashamed of what ANYONE else did, not even your forefathers.

I always live by the rules:
1. No one is born for the other
2. No one is other's slave
3. No one is here to fulfill the ideals of others as to what he/she should be.

Take care, Hugs

Isnt that a fun me me? And maybe a little bit revealing...

Queenie said...

That was unique, and answered with such honesty....

lime said...

i started this and it was coming out very weird....

val said...

I understood a few words in that . What is a winamp, and what actually is a meme?

I just had a prolonged correspondence with JoJo about the differences in the UK and US English languages. Or maybe this is just a youth slang or technospeak I don't know.

cathy said...

mona, damn fine rules

bf mis, it's even more revealing now that i've tweaked it

queenie, pay attention ther'll be questions later:)

lime, finish what you started,didn't you read my inner peace post?

val,winamp is an media application for PCs. A meme is what they call these Q&A type posts (only just found out myself) and finally must be technospeak, I'm English.

Logophile said...

very nicely done, I love your twist on it, made it even better!

Travis said...

That is a cool meme!

G-Man said...

"well I bet you I'm gonna be a big star, I'll win an Oscar you can never tell, the movies gonna make me a big star, cause I can play the part so well"!!

I love Buck Owens...

Anonymous said...

I liked Ringo's version of Act Naturally.
3 Dog Night, wow I haven't thought about them in a long time. They did have an interesting story about the lead singer's battle with drugs on VH1 or was that Uriah Heep? no it was 3 Dog.

Tanya said...

Thank for swinging by my blog. Of course you can link to it.

val said...

Thanks, Cathy. Sorry about the nationality blooper, it was so much on my mind after the conversation with JoJo which had literally just happened.

Actually, I have to admit that I still don't really understand (must be old age, I'll have to take some extra ginkgo biloba tablets!)

cathy said...

logophile, thanks I like to add a little something - some people call it interferring:)

travis, that's why I couldn't resist it.

g-man, and I thought you were a ladies man

TC, don't get all melodymaker on me, I just listen to the stuff

tanya, its done.

val, no apo necessary. You know useful stuff like how to post VDO video clips. I'm jealous

Dan said...

Where am I? Someone told me to make a left after the Burger King.

How in heck did I end up here?

And why is Mona here? Hi Mona!

G-Man said...


cathy said...

Dan, people often become disorientated in my company. I am at a loss to explain this phenonenem.

g-man, what are you trying to say?
Do you have a hankering for cowboys?

Matt-Man said...

Indeed, fat bottomed girls do make this world go 'round. Cheers to you Cathy!!

50 Cent sings the Candyshop song. I only know this because my 8 year old likes the Weird Al parody of it.

Groovy Lady said...

Nicely done! You can tell your answers are real and honest, and yes like barefoot_mistress said above.. revealing.

The tweaks were great.. all of it was very good, but I thought that was the best part of the whole thing.

cathy said...

matt man, In some cases they make it spin out of control!

limpy, that's right thanks. Why can't bands have proper names these days like Mott The Hoople, U2, UB40 or even Meatloaf. YOUNG BANDS OF TODAY THEY JUST DON'T KNOW HOW TO NAME THEMSELVES!

groovy lady, I do like tweaking things:)
