Themthems

What's a Themthem you may ask? Well, according to the link at VE's place you turn the meme around as a way to tell on others. Since you know I almost never do a meme straight I thought this would be a fun twist for the next tag in particular.

So Maddy has tagged me with the following. Since I've done some variant of this at least 8 times it's the perfect time to turn it into a Themthem.

Rules:

1) Link to the person who tagged me.
2) Mention the rules.
3) Tell six quirky yet boring, unspectacular details about myself.*
4) Tag six other blogger´s by linking to them.
5) Go to each person’s blog and leave a comment that lets them know they’ve been tagged.


And away we go...

1. Lecram had the script of the first skit he wrote back in grade school tattooed on his back...in Chinese. He Photoshopped it out for the sake of his header.

2. Logo is a world thumbwrestling champ. She defeated the former champion during a bout that lasted for 15 rounds. A single arch of her eyebrow caused her opponent to loose concentration at a key moment. The resulting thumb cramp as he tried to recover lost him the match.

3. James once considered becoming a manicurist because Madge, the Palmolive spokeswoman, was his childhood hero. We can all be glad he later discovered motorcycles, vampires, and writing.

4. For the last 20 years, Susie has been collecting all the lint she finds in the dryers at her local laundramat. She claims she set up a second yurt at her house for extra living space, but it's just because the first yurt houses the world's biggest ball of lint. Now she just needs to find the guy with the world's biggest belly button so she can stuff the lint in there.

5. Among the myriad retro keepsakes Gman has held onto are the movie stub, popcorn bucket with remaining unpopped kernels, and the soda cup (with straw) from the first movie his mother took him to see when he was 4.

6. In a past life, Mona was Mort Snively, an accountant for a small appliance business in Otisville, Michigan in the late 1950s. He met his untimely death when an Electrolux vacuum malfunctioned as he tried to suck up a giant ball of lint from under the seats of the movie theater where the annual manicurist convention had enjoyed the theatrical production of a Malaysian school boy prior to engaging in a rousing evening of thumb wrestling competition.

Who could have imagined?

*Clearly, none of these details are about myself. Nor are they based in any actual fact. They are, of course the delusional imaginings of a blogger who was tagged when she was bereft of any blog-worthy topic. Please feel free to click along to the next blog in the hopes that it may cover something of genuine importance or relevance to anything.

Being from the south, with just a smidge of Scott in me, I loved your chicken & waffle idea ;P

G-Man said...

Mona said...

Michigan!!!! ??? Mona belonged to Michigan??? No wonder he feels about Michganers the way he does now in his present life!

Mona said...

And do you know! Those yahoo astrologers tell me that I was the Spiritual Leader of Red Indians living in North America in my past life!

Who know...I might have beaten those drums of Nunne hi'....

Maddy said...

What a good sharer you are. Who needs rules anyway.
cheers

Breazy said...

Very good info about your fellow bloggers! LOL! Hope you are having a great day! :)

Craver Vii said...

This time I should have read the last part first. I wasn't sure how to process that bizarre information on a sluggish Monday morning.

Logophile said...

Oh, but that eye brow thing could totally happen...

:P

funny girl

Queenie said...

Heeee-larious, my son use to save his belly-button fluff yuck!!!!

Suldog said...

You, my dear, are demented. And that's why I love you.

(And I know the reason you didn't use me as one of your victims was only because you couldn't be sure that the lies you would have told about me might, in actuality, have turned out to be true. I understand, and sympathize.)

James Goodman, Novelist said...

lol, now that was some funny stuff. .:D

S said...

The eyebrow thing....yeah...it works.


As for moi, well, if anyone wants to make some lint sculptures, I apparently have 113 square feet of it in one yurt and well.....lots more in the other.

It's all from Lime's laundry though. I import it. I dont have a washer or a dryer.

In fact, I go around at night robbing laundromats of their lint balls!

:P
Ok I will get on it later...still recovering from the market.

VE said...

Ha ha ha. Thanks for the call out on my post! I'm so proud to see somebody using a themthem and laying blame and making up ridiculous stories. It warms my heart.. (and I believed every word of those bloggers)

mssolitaire said...

LMAO!!!!!!!!! Oh Lime, this is TOO awesome! :)

Gledwood said...

}}don't get this...{{

lecram said...

The only reason I removed it was because there was an extra stroke and meant something rude. LOL!

MyUtopia said...

LOL, what a great idea!

barman said...

I love the idea of this. Now if only I am creative enough...

~Tim said...

There are really blogs that "cover something of genuine importance or relevance to anything"?

Where?

M said...

citizen of the world said...

You just never know what you're going to find out about other bloggers.

I see, by reading back through, vacation is over. The posts remind me of a Buddhist book called "After the Ecstasy, the Laundry."

Beach Bum said...

...world thumbwrestling champ...

Since I heard about the world championship of Rock, paper, scissors being real I've been waiting for the Hide and Seek superbowel so world thumbwrestling doesn't surprise me.
