I’ve been tag-teamed by the Eight Things Meme, from both Defiant Infidel and Ah Shoot! — that’s probably well and good since laziness, procrastination, and distraction make completing such a thing difficult without some encouragement or “enforcement.” So, what can thematically tie these 8-Things together? Nothing, they’re supposed to be random – but there are rules, I Googled them:
List 8 facts/habits about yourself
Post the rules at the beginning before those facts/habits are listed
Tag 8 people and post their names, go to their blogs and leave them a comment, Letting them know that they have been tagged and ask them to read your blog.
Yeh ok, the thing is not everybody follows the rules – which is OK with me since a Blogosphere Meme is the equivalent of a chain-letter without the promise of money, good-luck, or dating a hot chickk – which since I’m married really doesn’t interest me.
Googling it also revealed that it is chummy goofy sharing-ness all across the Blogosphere (and probably beyond) among sensitive Leftosphere Loonie-Libtards, us Gunbloggers, the Rightosphere, the Atheistic Anti-Godosphere, the I’m-Still-In-School-Getting-My-Degreeosphere, and even (maybe especially) dancing all around the Fabulous Flaming Queerosphere. So we’re in good Diversity…
1. Coffee with milk.
2. Guns without scopes – except the M1 Carbine.
3. Failed pre-Calculus, twice – never passed it.
4. Medieval German (sounded-out has an Austrian accent, Elmer Fudd is an Austrian based on his consonantal pronunciation in particular the W’s).
5. Tangential – see (above) I’ve already digressed – and since that last distraction visited eight or so more blogs…
8. I used a Clifford Geertz (1926-2006) quote in my Thesis’ frontispiece – a quote that could equally have come from Buckaroo Banzai, and one which evokes the relative merits of Cultural Anthropology while employing a notational amount of “Thick Description” (literally) besides – and one that applies to this circumstance,
“Every serious cultural analysis starts from a sheer beginning and ends where it manages to get before exhausting its intellectual impulse.” (Thick Description: Toward an Interpretive Theory of Culture )
Water is wet – serious or non-serious, I’ve exhausted the intellectual frothiness here… Ok, I’ll go ahead and post this while I think of eight Bloggers to tag, if I can think of eight Bloggers to tag.
