"Good memoirs. Good, not great."










"Hello, Mr. Bush!"

What does George Herbert Walker Bush have to do with this post? Outside of the title, nothing. Anyway, The Invisible Woman ruthlessly tagged her entire blogroll with the 'memoir meme' currently stalking the electrons, and if you saw what picture she had accompanying her post, well, I'd be quite the fool to not post my own version. I'll be damned if I end up becoming a corpse at my youthful age because of misguided hubris.

The rules, suckers:
1. Write your own six word memoir.
2. Post it on your blog and include a visual illustration if you’d like.
3. Link to the person that tagged you in your post.
4. Tag five more blogs with links.
5. And don’t forget to leave a comment on the tagged blogs with an invitation to play!


















La vie intérieure est mon sanctuaire.

Everyone is tagged since half of my blogroll has probably done this or will be doing it or will have said 'fuck off, good sir or madame, I will not.' Thus, the whole of the law shall be, do what thou wilt.

Fumeur weed est mon sanctuaire.

Not sure if that's a correct translation, but you get my drift. Non? ;-)

My Inner French Girl said...

Does it have to be in French? 'Cause with my French skills -- or dismal lack thereof -- it could be no more than, "Je vis dans la bibliotheque."

Oh, wait, that's five. Uhm, "Je vis dans la bibliotheque, monsieur."

;-)

Salut,
Marjorie

ME, I know 'smoking and drinking' would be translated as 'le tabac et l'alcool,' so we could always do what the Pleiade did and transform some verbs into nouns: le fumant de weed est mon sanctuaire. Mais non, je ne te comprends pas ;-)

marjorie, oh no, English is fine, I was just being snooty. ;-)

Oooo... very well chosen memoir and image to go with it! It absolutely resonates for me!! I still have to post the previous meme you tagged me for but this will give me another meme to add if I get my act together and post more frequently! :)

susan said...

scarlet and mathman already caught me but I have to tell you I liked the pic and your 6 word summation.

Mary Ellen said...

I thought mine was wrong. I think the way I wrote it "Fumeur" would be like the weed is smoking, not I'm smoking the weed. Thanks for correcting that for me. I hate foreign languages, why can't they all speak English like normal people? ;-)

Randal Graves said...

b, yeah, this makes the second meme that you need to get cracking on in order to be a more frequent poster. And rest assured, we will be watching. ;-)

susan, that's why I didn't officially tag anyone, you've all been hit already, and thanks!

ME, I'm sure there's a dirty joke in there somewhere, but this is a family blog, godfuckingdammit. Hey, just wait until Canada invades. Then we'll be forced to say 'hoser,' 'eh' and 'aboot.' ;-)

DCup said...

Marvelous! Wish I'd thought of that one.

I can't speak French, no comment!

Dr. Zaius said...

Il n'obtient pas bondé là dedans ?

Candace said...

Oh man, a meme that will involve thinking. Um, okay. I'll give it a whirl. Laters. :)

b said...

Dang! No pressure, eh? ;-)

Randal Graves said...

dcup, Steal This Memoir.

tengrain, merci !

fran, but you just did comment, despite your declaration of not commenting!

dr. zaius, il semble que je suis coincé chez moi !

candace, yes, sorry about that. I usually like to spread the memes that require little energy output. ;-)

b, of course not! ;-)

I couldn't decide on anything I liked (hey! how about that!), other than "Indecisive"x6 so I'll have to wait till I see another meme floating around the Internets. :/ Ugh how depressing! Now I'm determined to figure out something good! ;)

Oh, hey, you did it!
