Meme

Morning..Welcome to my little corner of the web on the day after Anzac Day.

Gosh, but all I want to do is celebrate. Yesterday was the day of days in Oz. Everyone or at least it seemed like everyone had become an historian remembering World War !, World War 2, Korea, Vietnam, and/or Iraq and Afghanistan. These people take the remembrance thing a tad too far and my leaky margins just gobbled up all the angst and pain that was evident in their remembering.

So, today the sun shines in a clear blue sky; the temps are about to rise to the 80s F. and we are off to an Hungarian Barbecue at a friend's house.

However, I wanted to share with all my English teacher friends one of the neatest set of possible writing assignments – the kind you give the kids to fill the first ten minutes of class to keep them busy while you are taking care of the roll and various and sundry other tasks.

I didn't know what a Meme was – – had to look it up on the web. and the link that you will reach by clicking on the title of this blog entry will take you to a site with scads of simple, fun writing assignments related to memes. Just follow the links.

And in case you want an example, try out this example meme:

1. Go to www.flickr.com
2. Type in your answers to the questions below in the "search" box.
3. View only the first page of each response.
4. Copy the paste two photos of your chosing.

First name?
First word of your elementary school's name?
Favorite color?
Pet peeve?
Dream vacation?
What do you want to be when you grow up?
What do you most love in life?
One word to describe you?

Thanks to Kenneth who sent it on to a lot of us on the INFJ web list.

Happy Friday in nordamerika...happy Saturday here in Oz..
