Oodles of Memes

Ananda Girl got me this time. I added two categories because I felt the need to have this whole thing be even (or odd, as the case may be when you do 5x5).

5 Obsessions
Tie Dye
Hugh Jackman (preferably after he has removed the tie dyed shirt I made him and is now slathered liberally in chocolate)
My plot to overthrow Lichtenstein
The eradication of canned peas

5 Dislikes
Being itchy
Vapid celebrities
Head on collisions

5 Things things better than a head-on collision
Childbirth by Caesarian with a failed epidural
Scrubbing a toilet
Watching a marathon of Rock of Love (this is only marginally better)
Reading anything by Nicholas Sparks or Danielle Steel

5 Things worse than a head-on collision
A home invasion robbery
The threat of back surgery
Anaphylactic shock

5 Tagged
The mattress
Clearance rack clothes
The slow runner who it perpetually "it"
The odd wall hanging from Great Aunt Muriel I got for my wedding but am now selling at the yard sale
The corpse being sent to the morgue


Jazz said...

Lichtenstein eh?

furiousBall said...

Lichtenstein has been mouthing off for far too long, I'm wid you

Desmond Jones said...

So, uh, Hugh Jackman would be a non-vapid celebrity, then?

Just askin'. . .

Hmmmmm. . . WordVer = 'matedie'. . . I seriously, seriously hope not. . .

NYD said...

It was the finale that knocked me flat. "The slow runner who it perpetually "it"." Thanks for the zing!


EllaJayeBee is now Elle Dubya said...

i've always loved the word "vapid" - it is such a perfect descriptor.

Anonymous said...

LMAO.... I have to say those 2 extra cadegories are awesome! :)

lime said...

jazz, yep...they have "interesting" banking and tax laws, plus they are small enough that i just might be able to pull it off.

furiousball, what position in my new cabinet would you like?

desmond, quite correct. he is an advocate for adoption so that wins a lot of points in my book.

nyd, it's a situation i was all too familiar with as a kid :)

ella, ain't it though? insipid is another fave of mine

solitaire, they just seemed fitting

S said...

UH, any word on the job front?

Ananda girl said...

Thanks for participating! Love the lists.

Funny reading Nicholas Sparks and Danielle Steel make me vomit!

Chocolate covered Hugh... mmmmmmmmm

Desmond Jones said...

'Insipid' just sorta begs the question of what a 'sipid' thing would look like, doesn't it?

And I probably know better than to ask if I could join you next time you have lunch w/ Hugh, but hey, it's worth a shot. . .

Cocotte said...

LOL on the Sparks and Steel....couldn't agree with you more!

Craver Vii said...

I echo NYD about the slow runner. First I laughed, then I cried.

RennyBA said...

Great meme and you know what: I'm obsessed with Tie Dye too ;-)

74WIXYgrad said...

Me, I'm just happy that you have your mojo back. Whatever the heck a mojo is.

Fred said...

I was reading all the posts I missed, and I enjoyed the Bartles and Jaymes picture. It's been a long time since I've seen a reference to those guys.

Speaking of tie die, D3 is a huge fan of that genre. It seems every weekend she's making a new shirt. It certainly brings back memories.

G-Man said...

Aunt Muriel?

From Wilkes Barre?

Mona said...

eeeeks! I can imagine what it would have felt like if my epidural failed during the cesarean section I had!!

I had a tumor in the back removed via surgery last year and survived it!

snowelf said...

That marathon of Rock of Love is right on the line.


Beach Bum said...

My plot to overthrow Lichtenstein
The eradication of canned peas

I always though canned peas came from Lichtenstein which was using them to conquer the world by turning people off vegetables and to fast food leading them to obesity. This way the legions of Liechtensteiner ninjas would have an easier time running amok and stealing everyone's tooth brush causing more cavities further driving us into their clutches.

Anonymous said...

ok...then I'm making up my own as well...

Shadow said...

what did lichtenstein do to you, hmmmmmm

Anonymous said...

Lichtenstein, yep, far too much bad, singing of drinking songs by chaps covered in gold braid and comely maidens with gold braids.

You are too funny...think you must be feeling better, hooray!

The only good book I ever read by Danielle Steel was about her son's battle with bipolar disorder.
