Memelicious Meme

Because if Mike can do it, so can I.
1. Do you try to look hot when you go to the grocery store just in case someone recognizes you from your blog?
The only bloggers I’ve ever seen in a shop of any kind were D and Pix, and that’s because I went into the shop with them to buy something. Possibly pie.
2. Are the photos you post Photoshopped or otherwise altered?
Some of the ones on The Shoe Project may have been doctored ever so slightly to enhance your viewing pleasure.
3. Do you like it when creeps or dorks email you?
There used to be this guy who emailed me every so often to let me know that I’d made a mistake in my HTML. I live with him now.
4. Do you lie in your blog?
No, but Pete does.
5. Are you passive-aggressive in your blog?
I assume that this question means do I use my blog to try and influence people and events, without actually saying so. Despite my comment about buying one’s own flowers yesterday, no-one has yet given me any flowers. So yes, I am, but not successfully.
6. Do you ever threaten to quit writing so people will tell you not to stop?
No, but Pete does.
7. Are you in therapy? If not, should you be? If so, is it helping?
If I was as crazy as a coot, I would use my weblog as therapy, for your entertainment.
8. Do you delete mean comments? Do you fake nice ones?
I don’t delete mean comments, because as was pointed out at the beginning of Guest Season, any feedback is better than none at all; but why would anyone fake a nice comment when they could fake a mean one and start a flame war?
9. Have you ever rubbed one out while reading a blog? How about after?
No, but Pete did delete the entire blog once.
Is that what this means?
10. If your readers knew you in person, would they like you more or like you less?
The thing with blogmeets is that you generally don’t have to be liked to be invited; you can just turn up. And then everyone gets drunk, so it’s really no indication of being liked. So I don’t know.
11. Do you have a job?
I do.
12. If someone offered you a decent salary to blog full-time without restrictions, would you do it?
I was lucky to be able to blog all day in my last job, but if that was still the case, then there would be no Uborgy, and the world would be a greyer place.
13. Which blogger do you want to meet in real life?
qB and Sue. I think I have met everyone else in the entire blogosphere.
14. Which bloggers have you made out with?
Just the one.
15. Do you usually act like you have more money or less money than you really have?
I’m not aware that I’ve ever blogged about the amount of money I have.
16. Does your family read your blog?
My brother is my chief commenter.
17. How old is your blog?
Uborka is about ten months old, but the history of Karen-Pete bloggery goes way back.
18. Do you get more than 1000 page views per day? Do you care?
I have no idea.
19. Do you have another secret blog in which you write about being depressed, slutty, or a liar?
This would be a stupid place to admit to it, if I had.
20. Have you ever given another blogger money for his/her writing?
No, but I may have offered other forms of payment.
21. Do you report the money you earn from your blog on your taxes?
If someone could please let me know how I can earn money from my blog, that would be super.
22. Is blogging narcissistic?
What, writing about oneself on a daily basis, and publishing it on the internet? How could that be considered narcissistic?
Tell me again why this is called a meme?
23. Do you feel guilty when you don’t post for a long time?
No. But I do feel slightly affronted when the guests don’t.
24. Do you like John Mayer?
Despite google’s best efforts, I still don’t know.
25. Do you have enemies?
I am certain that I have directly pissed off at least one person via blogging, but not as much as he/she pissed me off.
26. Are you lonely?
27. Why bother?
Who else would provide a free virtual bar every week of the year?

  1. Do you like it when creeps or dorks email you?
    So does this mean I can carry on emailing you or is Pete still going to hurt me?

  2. You may have had nearly a thousand hits last Friday – but hey, watch ’em plummet this week! (I’m glad to be of service, in that capacity).

  3. I should like to meet you as well.
    You never tell the good stuff anymore, and I do so love… gossip-

  4. The good stuff goes on her depressed, slutty, untruthful other blog.

  5. Well I’ve been trying to meet you! One day it’ll happen and then boy, won’t you be disappointed. However I have to admit that my nose is like a badger’s armpit, and that’s at least quite unusual. So I’m told.

  6. Er, re 27 – is anyone running a tab this afternoon?
    Thirsty work, this officing lark..

  7. I’m off in meetings, but if anyone does serve up I’ll have something wet and sleazy please.
