There aren't as many memes around as there were back in the good old days. I blame Howard. Now he's gone (where?) perhaps the memes will return. Lorraine Crescent had this one

I am.

Never at home, only in other peoples' houses, restaurants, shops etc

Yes, I'm totally undiscriminating now.

18.Last thing you cooked today?

Is it my over-developed suspicion glands or does that meme have a hint of target marketing about it?

Expect phone calls from your local solarium offering half price sessions & a free set of Austen DVDs.

David said...

Your answers better than mine. I stole the questions (and some of the answers) from my young friend Polly via:

Having tried to get off myspace umpteen times now I have emailed them to ask them wtf. It's a bit like deleting your dealer's number, I suppose, since I am obviously still fascinated.

lucy tartan said...

Bernice very likely. Solaria are desperate now I imagine.

David, can't you just delete all the stuff you've put on your page, one piece at a time?

Or violate some Green Day copyright or something, then they'll probably close the page down for you.

I thought your answers were alright.

Rob said...

I really ought to learn not to be drinking coffee when reading your meme responses. Dare I admit I snorted at your answer to 36?

David said...

I did some research on the missing questions by searching through yahoo for some of the others. It seems like there are a few versions going around (some of the lists only have 40+ questions in them, in roughly the same sequence). However, I have found this as 26: 'Have any regrets?' and this as 33: 'What's something you regret right now?' although another 33 is 'Have you ever said you like someone out of sympathy?'. 40-44 could be 'Is there someone who pops into your mind at random times?'; 'What school do you go to'; 'What radio station do you listen to?' and 'Who WAS!! your first best friend?' Some of those definitely are interesting target marketing/ market research styled questions. I suppose you're right, in America 'What radio station do you listen to?' and the school question which could place many people geographically, could have a racial aspect, though maybe more subtly than you suspected?

David said...

Also a question about playing an instrument.

Highly trained historian puts archival research skills to work

David said...

yeah you should see my serious stuff

Martin Kingsley said...

I nicked this, and then three other people nicked it. The kleptocracy is nigh. Resistance is futi--ooh, look, a spoon, shiny!

Drewzel said...

Couldn't help myself.

Scrivener said...

I actually did LOL reading this post. I LOLed. And now I'm talking about LOLing. Wait, shouldn't that be LedOL and LingOL?

Some of these questions are really funny, actually the second one reminded me when I've gotten so drunk vomiting in the toilette.
