The Meme of Seven

I have been tagged by Eddie and Peter in a meme.

The Rules:
1. Link to your tagger and post these rules on your blog.
2. Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird.
3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs.
4. Let them know they are tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

1. This is the second time I am writing this post because blogger crapped out yesterday and ate the post.
2. Tomorrow, while my fiance will be working her tail off taking the boards exams, I will be relaxing watching Netherlands vs. Russia in the Euro2008 quarterfinal, and hoping to see my dad on TV (he has tickets and will be at the game!).
3. I think blog memes are a cool way of tracing networks of blogs.
4. I haven't updated my blog in a long time because of internet problems at home - it's not that I lost interest...
5. Everyone should go read/listen to my sister's interview of a big fancy-pants (literally - they wear fancy pants) music star, Stephen Connolly of the King's Singers.
6. I asked my fiance for a random fact about me and she said "you like soccer."
7. I am tagging Pat 7 times because he hasn't updated his blog in nine months.

I think this is the third blog I read that I've seen this meme on. The interesting thing is that all three blogs are unrelated; i.e., they aren't tied together by any particular connection, other than the fact that I read them. So yeah, definitely cool for tracing networks of blogs.

And Russia won...dammit.

Yeah but I would be more pissed about the Russia/Netherlands game if Russia hadn't deserved to win. Russia played like Holland, and Holland played like crap.

How is this meme different from a chain letter and why does it serve any purpose other than clogging up cyberspace?

And Russia did deserve to win. Arshavin is the next Pele.

Adrian said...

Well because chain letters are foisted upon your inbox, whereas you chose to click on my blog post. And it can't clog cyberspace because cyberspace is an unlimited resource!

It'll be interesting to see if Spain can cut off supply to Arshavin, to see if he's the kind of player that can always take over a game or if he needs the ball at his feet to have an impact. I think the Dutch needed Jeff Larentowicz out on the field on Saturday.
