AW Monday Meme #3

This meme comes from Veinglory's blog. I loved it (almost as much as the gay zombie penguins, but not quite). So, in the truest tradition of meme-ing I'm passing it along to you. (and, yes, I did post my 'memory' in Veinglory's comments. You'll understand what I mean when you read on.)

This is a bit like a writing prompt. You are being asked to compose a COMPLETELY MADE UP AND FICTIONAL memory of you and someone else on AW or your blog-roll. It can be anything you want - good or bad - BUT IT HAS TO BE FAKE. Identify who the person is and link to their blog or AW Profile as well. Feel free to tag them to pass on the meme if you'd like.

Now, if you want to propagate the meme, as part of your post you should include the following text:

If you read this, if your eyes are passing over this right now, (even if we don't speak often) please post a comment with a COMPLETELY MADE UP AND FICTIONAL memory of you and me. It can be anything you want - good or bad - BUT IT HAS TO BE FAKE.

When you're finished, post this little paragraph on your blog and be surprised (or mortified) about what people DON'T ACTUALLY remember about you.

As always, I'd love it if you'd use the 's tag.

I've gotten some comments about that tag - that folks have used it and they're not showing up on Technorati. Since I'm not an expert in how it works all I can suggest is that you manually ping Technorati that you've updated your blog. If you want me to drop by your blog and see if you've done the tag right, I'm happy to do so. Just ask me in comments, on the AW Monday Meme's thread or PM me.

I was just wondering - did your mom ever figure out where we got the money for Christmas presents that year? (waaay back in '69)

I've only ever told one person that you and I stole all the money out of the fountain at the Crabtree Valley Mall. But hey, we bought some good s*** that year! :)

I never told anyone about the time we skinny dipped and swam from Alcatraz to San Francisco. The nipple fish were nasty.

(c'mon over and read my blog entry)

I think the technorati updates are not real time. Sometimes, it takes days for things to show up. I think it has a webcrawler that goes through and searches for tags, links, posts, etc. Occaisionally, I'll get a hit from technorati.

This time of year, I always find myself remembering that middle of the night drive you made to come see me. Thru all that valley fog and frost. You're such a pal. Most people would never answer the phone at four in the morning... nevermind, get dressed and drive for three hours, just to help out a girlfriend, but you did it.

Who knew it would be so hard to get a dead stripper into a wood mulcher? :?

These are all fabulous! I don't quite get emeraldcite's but he's known for his abstract thinking...

Remember the year we painted our faces green, dressed in tinfoil, and went to the UFO convention. We had everyone convinced that we were aliens looking for Area 51 so we could bring our relatives back home.

Dawno, my favorite memory of you will always be the night you broke up with that asshole guy, I can't remember his name, now--Bradley, wasn't it?--and we all got smashed on champagne, and you shimmied up the Post Office flagpole to do that striptease.

I still can't believe the cops actually pulled their guns, for chrissakes. It was pretty obvious you weren't armed, by the time they showed up.

Ah, Dawno, so fondly I remember the time that we pulled an all nighter at that start-up that went belly up a month or so later...it was such a ball working like dogs all freaking night, drinking coffee with tons of sugar for 13 hours...we got so much more done back in the days before the Internet! And then the damn company folded, sinking all of our options with it. Blast. And what's really funny is that we did the same thing at three other companies. At least we finally got rich off one of them, right?

Right?

RIGHT????

These are all so great! I'll use them in my autobiography for certain.

And 'pink: I WISH!!!
