I’ve been tagged with a meme. I’ve avoided participating in meme-taggin exercises up until now because I didn’t want to go down that road. Wilhelm2451 over at The Ancient Gaming Noob has challenged me to wrest me from by blog-slumber on this one though. So here it is. Some honest scrap for you all.
Let’s start with the premise of the meme.
According to TAGN, here is the dealio;
The Rules for this meme are apparently:
1. When accepting this auspicious award, you must write a post bragging about it, including the name of the misguided soul who thinks you deserve such acclaim, and link back to the said person so everyone knows she/he is real.
2. Choose a minimum of seven (7) blogs that you find brilliant in content or design. Or improvise by including bloggers who have no idea who you are because you don’t have seven friends. Show the names and links of the seven random victims and leave a harassing comment informing them that they were prized with Honest Weblog. Well, Well, there’s no prize, but they can keep the nifty icon.
3. List at least ten (10) honest things about yourself. Then pass it on!
Like Wilhelm, I’m not prone to brag. At least not on cue. So here it is. Woo, famous people have read this blog. Actually, that’s easy to make happen if you figure out what words are in their google alerts. But I’m claiming that one anyway. The person who also thinks I rock (besides Tarkheena, depending on the day) is evidently Wilhelm at TAGN.wordpress.com.
Number one is complete.
Now, seven Blogs.
I’m going to tag the folks that I feel closest to in a blog sense.
So here goes;
1. Stylish Corpse. /Poke Ysharros
2. Kill Ten Rats. I’m gonna go ahead and call out Ethic on this one.
3. Wall of Text. Still miss playing MMO’s with Brent.
4. Nerfbat. Because it will annoy the shit out of Shwayder.
5. Anyway Games. Because it’s one of the most thoughtful and less self-promoting of us.
6. Common Sense Gamer. /wave Darren. You guys coming to AGDC again this year? Beer, er call, me.
7. The Ramblings of JoBildo. For the same reason Wilhelm tagged me.
There, that’s #2.
Here is number 3;
10 Honest things about me…
See if you can figure these out. Should be pretty easy, especially once you get the theme. Extra points if you know the year as well. Be honest if you google.
1. I never plotted a murder with someone I don’t know on a conveyance.
2. I’ve never been mistaken for a spy and chased across the country.
3. I don’t get particularly dizzy when I’m up high.
4. I’m not a tennis pro trying to kill my wife by proxy.
5. I’ve never had a party with a dead friend in the room.
6. I’ve never run a hotel, along with my mother.
7. I’ve never been to Morrocco with Doris Day.
8. I’ve never spied on Nazis in South America.
9. I do have a healthy fear of attack by flying feathered creatures.
10. I’ve never watched a neighbor commit a heinous crime from my apartment.
There. It’s done. Or will be as soon as I get home (where all the sites aren’t filtered like here at work) and I can post my taunt on your sites.
