The Meming Of Life? 

What's in a meme? Or rather - what IS a meme? To put it simply, a meme, like a gene, replicates through culture, whether it be a song or a game, or whatever. Only the strongest songs or games or ideas, will survive.
Go here for a much more intelligent and comprehensive explanation. All that matters, for this blog, is that you know that I received a particular meme fom a friend and am trying to help keep this one alive. I guess you could say that I'm procreating my own version of the original...

So, what is this particular meme? Apparently, it's just a list. This list:

Four Jobs You've Had in Your Life
* Grocery Clerk/Janitor/Cashier

* Chocolatier (Candyman)
* Automotive repairs salesperson
* Corporate Instructor

Four Movies You Could (and Do!) Watch Over and Over Again (1)
* The Nightmare Before Christmas
* Stargate
* Memento

* Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

Four Cities/Towns You've Lived In
* Peekskill, New York
* Plantation, Florida
* Fort Lauderdale, Florida
* Back to Plantation, Florida (2)

Four TV Shows You Love to Watch
* Good Eats
* Mythbusters
* The Avatar
* Stranded (With Cash Peters) (3)

Four Places You've Been On Vacation
* London

* Paris
* Washington, D.C.

* San Antonio, Texas

Four Websites You Visit Daily
*
hiddencity.net
* fark.com
* wheresgeorge.com
* WilWheaton.net in Exile

Four of Your Favorite Foods
* Chocolate
* Kraft Macaroni and Cheese
* Rare Steak (mooing)
* Brie

Four Places I'd Rather Be Right Now
* Home in bed

* In a movie theater watching something fun
* New York City (with tickets to Spamalot)
* Home in bed cuddling with terrible T

Footnotes:
1: I don't really watch any movies over and over again. Some I watch repeatedly with 6 or so months between them. When the kiddies were littler, I did get to see Arthur videos over and over again. I can think of worse things to have to see over and over again.

2: I really have only lived in three cities.
3: On the Travel network. Hilarious!

SPONSOR ME! 

Real simple.
Last week I weighed 162.5 pounds.
I hope to weigh a little less than 160 on May 17.
For each pound I lose, you (yes you!) sponsor me $____.
The money goes to The American Red Cross.

Are you "in?"

(Oh yeah... I can win prizes, too.)
