The 108 Meme

Sparks Of Insanity By Vinny "Bond" Marini Wednesday, July 18, 2007

The incomparable THE 108 has tagged us with a MEME of her own design. It is actually a pretty interesting MEME and deserves to be circulated...


Here is what The 108 has asked:

You MUST post five links to posts we have written. Post your five links and then tag five other people. At least TWO of the people you tag must be newer acquaintances so that you get to know each other better.... and don't forget to read the archive posts and leave comments!

Link 1 must be about family.
Link 2 must be about friends.
Link 3 must be about yourself, who you are... what you're all about...
Link 4 must be about something you love
Link 5 can be anything you choose.

I think this is a great way to circulate some of the great older posts everyone had written, return to a few great places in our memories and also learn a little something about ourselves and each other that we may not know.


So, with the rules set....away we go.....

LINK 1: OUR "FAMILY POST". We have done posts about individual members of our family. Mom and dad, Matt, my niece, and other, but this is the one that means the most to me.

LINK 2: OUR "FRIENDS POST". You need to scroll past the review of American Idol to read the post of the best weekend we have spent with friends in like...FOREVER!

LINK 3: OUR "ABOUT US" POST. This one could have probably fit into the Family post too in some ways, but it fits this category we think.

LINK 4: OUR "SOMETHING WE LOVE" POST. Guess one of these had to be a Matinee...and this is the one. It tells the story of something I love...
There are many Matinee's (and if you have not read them all, they are listed near the bottom of the right side-bar), but after all the writing...this is the story that came from our depths.
We found it funny that so many comments all stated similar all y'all might want to read them too!

LINK 5: POST OF OUR CHOOSING. Well, if this Meme is to let you get to know us better, then this one should be included.


Now we have to tag five people and TWO of them have to be recent

1) AISBY - she has been a frequent visitor to THE COUCH recently, and has left some wonderful comments. We linked her over on our favs on Monday, so today we tag her so that we can get to know her better.

2) TURNBABY - she is a wicked wicked lady with a heart of gold. (and will be doing her first BlogTalk Radio show this Sunday. Check out her blog for the info.

3) TRAVIS: my partner "Hottie", Travis is a magnificent writer, has a wealth of knowledge on so many subjects and is one of those friends we have met in the last year and a half who has impacted our life in so many wonderful ways. STARRLIGHT TAGGED HIM FIRST! DAMN HER!

3) MAGGIE: she writes about her job, her life and throws in short stories...she can do this one for lil ole me!

4) SPARKY DUCK: Sparky is fairly new to THE COUCH, and he is wickedly funny. There are things we would like to learn and this seems a good way to learn some more. YEAH THAT'S RIGHT...STARRLIGHT GOT TO HIM FIRST...

4) LAYLA: Another newer visitor to THE COUCH, we hope she partakes in this little adventure.

5) MIMI: Well, how can we call this a true Meme until the Queen Of The Meme's actually does it???
