I'm a Versatile Blogger, bitches

Darren at the grammatical nightmare, the m0vie blog, has nominated I, humble I, your leader, for this nifty meme-related thingermajig:



Naturally, I'm honored and shit, but I am also supposedly obliged to nominate other people (boo!) and write seven facts about myself (hiss!). This is why I fucking hate memes.

1) I have a fear of crowded stairs.

2) I have more books than I can ever hope to read before college.

3) I watch TV, but I don't terribly care what the show is I'm watching unless it involves Joss Whedon.

4) I love St. Vincent.

5) I have yet to see an Ingmar Bergman film. I don't even know I'm spelling it right.

6) Finals are tomorrow, and I will fail each and every one of them, except maybe English, because I read all the books, and I always pass vocabulary, and I'm shit at Daily Grammar Practice, but that's only, like, 10% of the grade, so I'm good with that. I will especially fail French.

7) I really want to learn Russian, chess, kung-fu, robot-building, and invent the sure-to-be hit game 'Black Hole Chicken'.

Nominations!

Chuck Norris Ate My Baby

Um...I dunno, everyone else has gotten it by now.

You could stand to be more versatile, BLOG UPSIDE DOWN.

When exactly do stairs get crowded?

Joss Whedon and kung fu are both lovely and two of my favorites. I'm not afraid of crowded stairs as much as I am just stairs in general, knowing full well that I might miss one and do a face-plant on some concrete.

Sugary Cynic: I'm having my team of crack computer nerds drafting blueprints for that keyboard as we speak. This shan't go ignored!

Writing Womb: A little bizness where you fly out to a black hole, and inch closer and closer, until one of you pussies out about spaghettification and whatnot.

Jose: Between periods.

Phoenix: It's not that I'm scarede of so much as the people surrounding me in every corner.

Good luck with the finals. Me lobbing a meme on top of you probably didn't help.

Whedon king-fu movie anyone?

I like Fitz's idea.

I learned chess in the 6th grade and love playing it. Our teacher has us read "The Westing Game", and part of the book requires the characters to play chess. We then learned the game and had a tournament. One of my all-time favorite things about elementary.

Thanks for the love, Simon sans Garfunkel. I have a love hate relationship with memes. I love to get them, I hate how they take over the blogoshere and then my blog. Lat time I ended up doing THREE posts in a week and a halves time. I shall post the nice award up on my sidebar, and if all goes as normal, I will wait to see if I get a few more to decide if I will reveal that I am a serial killer. Oh crap.

Congratulations! By the way, you misspelled poison up there on the top left... Was that on purpose :( ?

Fitz: Brilliant.

Red: I love the Westing Game. In my elementary school, we still had to read Amelia Bedelia in fourth grade.

Matt-suzaka: Memes kind of suck. And I will now adapt that name as my official moniker.

Annah: Certainly not. Thanks for catching it.
