Dude, what's a MEME?

So the latest theme at the blogs I shamelessly stalk seems to be spilling your guts. While I'm a regular at pax compoundia, I somehow overlooked the fact that Karloff so obviously passed the guts-spilling-torch onto me so here goes nothing...

You don't know what you have done here...I agonise over having to commit myself to lists! This is going to be a toughie! You bugger you!

--Bamboo Blitz-- said...

ha ha ha! I know, it's a bitch! I sat in front of the computer for over an hour trying to fit myself into the nice little post that you have before you! The toughest part is the song list...I'm actually off to change one of my songs as we speak..LOL

Divinyl said...

Done! I am not thanking you! Lol.

It is 6.26am here! (And I know that I'll be stressing about my responses for days/weeks/forever!).

I absolutely love memes. I'd be glad to 'play' along ;) Give me a week to post this though, I feel as if I haven't 'written anything in the past week. Puro memes lol. I'm not complaining though, I just find it a bit weird hehe......

You have a pretty bizarre playlist though lol...

Thanks Grace :)

--Bamboo Blitz-- said...

Oh that playlist is just the tip of the iceberg! he he! I grew up on indie and punk rock but I love soul, funk, and breaks so my musical palate is pretty out there!

karloff said...

hehe, thanks for takin' the time.. and great music list!

I'd have gotten on this yesterday, but there's big news a-brewin' for us.:)

--Bamboo Blitz-- said...

Hey Karloff, no worries buddy! Thanks for the tag!

Black_Mamba said...

Hey Grace, I'm doing this 'tag' tomorrow, would you like me to use your name or screen name?
Thanks again:)
