Two Memes

July 15, 2007 at 5:54 am 4 comments

My good friend Teri tagged me with not one, but two memes. Thanks Teri!

The rule is you type in your birth month and day into Wikipedia, then list 3 events, 2 births and 1 holiday.

Events

1783 – The volcano Laki, in Iceland, begins an eight-month eruption which kills over 9,000 people and starts a seven-year famine. (Iceland has volcanoes?)

1949 – Such celebrities as Helen Keller, Dorothy Parker, Danny Kaye, Fredric March, John Garfield, Paul Muni and Edward G. Robinson are named in an FBI report as Communist Party members. (Helen was a commie? WTF?)

1984 – Homosexuality is declared not a crime in the state of New South Wales, Australia. (A crime? Holy crap!)

Births

1927 – Jerry Stiller, American comedian and actor. (Serenity Now!)

1944 – Boz Scaggs, American singer and songwriter (Hell yeah!)

Holiday

World Ocean Day (Another good reason to celebrate, wooo-hoooo!)

Mutation meme

1. We have to post these rules before we give you the facts.
2. Players start with eight random facts/habits about themselves.
3. People who are tagged need to write their own blog about their eight things and post these rules.
4. At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names.
5. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.

8 random facts/habits:

8. I’ll eat just about anything. I’ve turned people’s stomaches when I tell them what I’ve tried. But I will NEVER try Rocky Mountain Oysters. You gotta draw the line somewhere.

7. I love my stereo more than my tv. I could get by with a 13″ standard POS tv with no cable. But don’t even eyeball my Cerwin-Vegas!

6. Orange juice or a power shake is my coffee in the morning. Power shake = equal parts OJ and milk with the frozen fruit of your choice (I like mango, strawberry and blueberries) with a banana, blended. Bee pollen optional. (pfft!)

5. For the first time I recently performed one of my pet peeves. Backing out of a parking space while on the phone. It will never happen again! *hangs head in shame*

4. I love the Bee Gees. There! I said it! I feel so much better

3. I am not lactose intolerant. But I feel for those that are.

2. I have a problem with high places, but yet I love the big roller coasters. Go figure.

1. I never cry. I’m in drought country.

Tag eight people? That’s a lot of pressure. If you made it this far, consider yourself tagged!

    love the answers. you were even born on a cool day with some cool people, especially that Boz.

    I think you should try the Rocky Mountain Oysters. What’ve you got to lose. hehehehe

    that shake sounds awesome. I might try that.

    And the Bee Gees rock!

    I have problems with heights as well but with the rollercoasters you’re strapped in. Hopefully you never have one shut down on you in mid upside downness. I would have a stroke if that ever happened.

    That’s why they’re in a drought over there, because you never cry. Let it out and give the people some water.
