Team Memedroids 2: Crazy Eights

Comments (14)

I don't often do memes on this blog because, well, they're a lot like the STDs of the blogosphere to me. You can continue the metaphor in your head.

When Golfwidow halfway tags you to do a meme, though, you throw your principles out the window and do the gosh dang meme. (How many times can I use the word "meme" in the first two paragraphs alone?? Geez!) I'm actually simultaneously fulfilling my obligation to Jace of Fuse!, who singled me out to do a "things I want to do before I die" meme over a month ago.

Killing two memes with one entry? Beautiful.

Writing the entry by hand (using pen and paper) and getting only halfway through it because you fell asleep at 6 p.m. and didn't wake up until fourteen hours later? Beautiful... in a Skirtsy way.

Crazy Eight Meme: Part One

There you have it. Part one of the Crazy Eights meme. Part two may or may not be finished while George Bush is still in office. Don't hold your breath, though.

Amen on the 8 things to do before you die.
And I love that you wrote it out in pen. I thought my handwriting was nice, but I'm totally jealous. And dude, Comic Sans? Should never have been invented.

Get you with your colour coordinated fancy pants writing.

Comic Sans is the Alan Thicke of fonts. It's not really comical, but people always use that as the first adjective to describe it.

How come your handwriting looks so much like Comic Sans? You know, when you reeeeeally hate something, you're often disguising how much you love it.

And they say guys are sex-obsessed! haha

seven: Thank you! I haven't written anything by hand in a while (other than hastily scribbled Post-It notes), so I was a little wary of sharing my less-than-perfect handwriting with the internet. And if I ever invent a time machine, the first thing to go is COMIC SANS.

James: Hee. "Colour." I love you.

golfwidow: I love you, too.

CosaMostro: Now that was just UNCALLED FOR, mister! Haha. My handwriting is based on several fonts, but none of them are Comic Sans, I can assure you. *shudders*

gRegor: I'm going to assume that I should click that link after I get home from work... And also, while I don't hang out with many girls, most of the ones I know are just as sex-obsessed as the guys in my life. That didn't come out sounding quite right, but hopefully you'll get the point.

jamie: Thank you! Like I said earlier, I'm pretty out of practice in the whole "write with a pen and paper" thing, but I'm glad that my rusty penmanship isn't as bad as I thought. :)

Golfwidow: Wow. Just. Wow. I don't think I could have ever said it better.

As far as the things to do before you die, I do sincerely wish you the best of luck on those. :)

I really like the concept of writing a blog post in pen. The problem is that even though my hand writing is actually somewhat super-neat my hand becomes insanely cramped after just a few minutes of writing.

I think it is funny that the 8 things to do before you die could be linked to the 8th item on the 8 things you are passionate about, in some round about (or direct) sort of way.

I actually could make lots of commentary about individual items, but that is probably because of my technical nature and the fact that I like to find associations between unrelated items.

I'll end this semi-rant by saying that your handwriting looks very much like Technical.

Actually I didn't end it there, I'm ending it below. I just thought I might throw you off by declaring the end before the real end.

This is the real end. [NO CARRIER]

So.... how did you post this on March 4th at 11:55? Or is that one of those, how you say, magician secrets?

Your handwriting is really nice. I love the way you write your lower case g's.

However, the whole writing a blog with pen and ink thing is totally lost on me. Isn't that just keeping an old-fashioned journal or a diary?

It just seems like it has come full circle, that's alls I'm sayin'.

I'm with jamie. You should make a font out of your handwriting.

Hand written blogging is awesome! At least yours is awesome. Have I said awesome enough?

I'm going to do this. Perhaps not by hand. Maybe with a typewriter.

The 8 things to do before you die? Yeah, that sounds like it could be my list, too. (Except part of me thinks I'm going to ignore steps 2 & 3 altogether and get into a Kurt Russell/Goldie Hawn type of relationship. Why? Because I'm that afraid of commitment.)
