So, Melinda, here we are.
It has taken me a while, but there is a good reason for that. See, first I had to figure out exactly what a "meme" was. I mean I had a pretty good idea of what I was expected to do, but I needed to know more. Where did the idea originate? What were the origins of the word? It turns out to be a word first used in a 1976 book by Richard Dawkins to describe "how one might extend Darwinian principles to explain the spread of ideas and cultural phenomena." Interesting. I wanted to read further. (1. I love any excuse to buy a new book.)
Or possibly I was just stalling. (2. I am a chronic procrastinator.)
Why seven Melinda? Because that seems like kind of a cliché. (3. I like to make my own rules.)
What constitutes a random fact, I wonder? Is that like a bra size? (4. 34B)
I am totally stumped on "weird" though. "Is there anything weird about me?" I ask my 10-year-old daughter. "Your hair," she says. (5. Some people seem to think I have weird hair.)
I wonder if it's a little weird that I can't think of anything weird about myself. I wonder if I could count that as 6? I wish it was "unusual" instead. Then I could have said... something. I would have thought of something. Oh for chrissakes. (7. I need a tattoo, or something.)
What's wrong with my hair anyway?
