MEME, BUT ITS FOR URUR PLEASURE

So I have been tagged, to do a MEME. How its pronounced is questionable (me-me or meem).

Here are the rules: reach for the nearest book and write the 5th sentence, plus the next two to five, on page 56. Tag five people to do the same.


"I have one here too"She stood, untangled her arm from the sleeve of her hooded sweatshirt, and revealed her tattoo of the same Jewish symbol, entwined in a tattooed vine. I sat stunned not sure of how to react.

That came from sort of holocaust book. Got tons of them all around my house. (side note) Did anyone here of Nachmans seltzers new book network? I believe it to be stupid; stopping the 4rth reich, isnt that just crazy. And get this, only 3 people can stop it; a jew looking for his past, a priest, and a violinist whos dreams are being haunted by a rabbi. With out reading it I can tell they are all somehow related, or that rabbi in the dream is probably the priests grandfather. (end of side note).

Now comes the interesting part. I have to write seven facts about myself.

Rules: Tag seven people to do the same. Share seven facts about yourself, some weird some random. leave their names and link them. Let those who have been tagged know by commenting their blog.

Fact 1: I love Sufganiot. Yes they are fattening, and I manage to keep it off, at least I think so. I should probably weigh myself.

Fact 2: The name Mike in Midwood was founded due to the name Flatbush Gal. I needed a name, and was sort of thinking along the lines of her name. With Flatbush really being Midwood, hence the name Mike in Midwood. She disappeared unexpectedly.

Fact 3: There were points in time I felt like I didn't want to continue the blog. I had no interest. I posted things with no thought. then I got back into it, thanks to end of world, and then she disappeared. (whats with all these people inspiring me and drifting away).

Fact 4: Purim is my favorite Yom Tov. I don't get drunk. I just love all the dancing thats done. Thats also why I love Simchas Torah, Purims just better.

Fact 5: I am a very happy fellow, not much can make me mad.

Fact 6: I try copying the way Frum satire writes posts; its just very hard to think of ideas he hasn't written.

Fact 7: My Ipod only holds 20 songs, it can hold more. I am very picky when it comes to music, only the best make it to the Ipod.

So there is the whole thing, weird, random, and factual, everything a meme needs. To link the ones who chose me, it was actually two who did; The Babysitter, Material Maidel. to those I am linking; Child Ish Behavior and Samuel, Insanity now Serenity Later, Sally Hazel, Frum Single Female, Frum Skeptic, Frum Punk, and Guess Who's coming to dinner A.K.A. G6. Hope you enjoyed.

I've done your bloody meme then.

Mikeinmidwood said...

Oh blimey, you must have done it with flying colours.

The Babysitter said...

I'm glad you did the meme!
It's interesting to see different reactions to it. Some enjoy it, some are neutral and some unwillingly do it, like Sporadic and Frum Punk!

Interesting, I've never really liked holocaust books.

I've never even seen that name, what a shame. I didn't even know people used the name "gal" (besides for me).

yea, lots of come and goers in the blogosphere, but I remember the good times with end of world.

that's good to be happy, keep it up!

So next post is to write about those 20 songs and why you like them

Mikeinmidwood said...

Babysitter

Its a great idea (20 songs and why), but since when do I ever write about myself unless its tied into a broader topic. All this meme business is getting out of hand.

The Babysitter said...

but you can write it in a way that it's like a music review. The same way you did the bakeries and others (although I haven't read those yet)

Moshe said...

I'm with you on about the songs. Never understood the need to get 20GB of storage, I have Sansa with 2GB and it's not even half full. And where will anyone have the time to listen to them anyway. 1 song is approx 7MB and 4 minutes, do the math.

Mikeinmidwood said...

Moshe

Thats why up until recently I had an Mp3 player with only 512mb.

Moshe said...

I don't even use mine. Work from home and listen to shoutcast radio. When I'm taking Shlomik to daycare he wants to talk to me and on the way back, meh.

Mikeinmidwood said...

I dont listen often either.

The Babysitter said...

I listen when I take the bus and when I get to class early and there's barely anyone there. I also use it for podcasts. I get frumsatire's youtube videos on there, so I don't have to watch it on youtube and wait for it to load. I can also play checkers, and a bunch of other games on my zune player. I had used it to bribe the kids I babysit, to let them watch short videos from yeshiva boys choir and such, and the videos I made. Plus pictures. So yea, if you use it then it can be great.

Mikeinmidwood said...

This is the part where the tangent comes in. Beautiful.

Moshe said...

Well, I replaced my Sansa's firmware with Rockbox so I also have games and other stuff and better control over the files...still...not enough incentive...

The Babysitter said...

lol your welcome

Mikeinmidwood said...

I only listen when I go to sleep.

Babysitter

Glad you liked it.

The Babysitter said...

I heard your not supposed to do that, Halachicly, for some reason, I forgot. But I listen to music sometimes when i can't fall asleep at night.

Mikeinmidwood said...

Babysitter

I believe thats waking up.

The Babysitter said...

o, really? you can't wake up to music? haven't heard that. Now I think I'll have to do some research

Mikeinmidwood said...

Babysitter

check you local shulchan aruch. Your jewish side is number eight on feedjit.

The Babysitter said...

ahh didn't think of that one.
That's cool.
