If You Haven't Been Tagged, But Want to Be...

... Don't feel left out! If you haven't been graced with the meme that has been floating around among us, but want to be, shoot me an email or say so in a comment on the Yoda blog and I will tag you, as well as list you among the tagged in my last post.

I would've tagged other SWU members, but it looked to me like everyone who actively maintains their blog has been tagged. However, I realize I may have missed someone, which is why I've posted this notice here.

Thanks,
Bill/Yoda

I have mixed feelings towards meme's. Everyone who's done it so far has done a great job with it though, so kudos to everyone on that.

I tried to end it when it came to me, but someone went and goaded me into sending it out to others.

Yeah, that was me. You gave in to the Dark Side of blogging pretty quick, huh? :)

I intend to put some time aside and trace this meme back to its source. I know that I got it from Typhelle, she got it from Jon, he got it from someone called Karnov, and Karnov got it from someone called Lore. And I'll see where it came from before that.

MeMes are like a bad case of the flu. No one wants it, but once you get it you inevitably pass it on to others.

I've completed my investigations. Working backwards from Jar Jar, the meme came from...

Me – mesajarjar.blogspot.com
Typho – typho.blogspot.com
Jon – joninterglad.blogspot.com
Karnov – karnblog.blogspot.com

Then, I discover that the meme didn't originate in blogspot at all. Karnov got it from...

Lore – darkenedsmiles.diary-x.com
Steph – stephanysleek.diary-x.com
By - herhips.diary-x.com
Starke – perfervid.diary-x.com
Galaxy – hellorabbit.diary-x.com

At hellorabbit, the trail goes cold. The blog has only one entry, which the author seems to continually update rather than post new entries (which she hasn’t done for some time). I think the meme is about as old as the blog itself.

Sounds like a job for Columbo.

I probably should have asked this sooner but how does tagging work?

All my previous experience with memes was in genetics.

Answer these questions, Tahl:

10 years ago I was: (5 things)
5 years ago I was: (5 things)
1 year ago I was: (5 things)
Yesterday I was: (5 things)

5 snacks I enjoy the most:
5 songs I know all the words to:
5 ideal places for running away to
5 items you will never see me wear:
5 biggest joys in my life
5 favorite toys:

And conclude by tagging five people.

In general, the way a meme works is that someone who hates people in general makes up a list of questions for his/her fellow bloggers to answer. This list of questions is called a "meme".

That annoying person then sends that meme to various bloggers to answer on their blog.

Once those bloggers do that, they are to "tag", or notify a specified number of other bloggers that they know that they now are to answer these questions.

The result is that, much like the Ebola virus, the meme will wind up spreading, infecting, and leaving a path of destruction througout the blogoshpere.
