Cyber Yeast, Part Deux
Not all memes are lame, quite a few are actually fun to do. I had a good time doing my Band Meme post, and several others liked the outcome - which is why I was honored with my second Rising Blogger award.
Thank you, Bud Weiser, for your kind words in your review. (Bud is the author of WTIT: Tape Radio and one of the team of reviewers at The Rising Blogger). And thanks to Judd Corizan, creator of The Rising Blogger site.
I didn't tag anyone else for the Band Meme, but some other bloggers liked the game enough to play along. Like my dear Indian blog buddy, Prometheus. He's been AWOL for the longest time and seeing him posting again is most pleasant. I and many others have enjoyed his smart and funny posts. Mon ami, if you're reading this, I hope you continue blogging. Your wit at The Moving (Middle) Finger Writes has been sorely missed.
The other person who did this game unbidden is Dean, who posts over at Qwerty Confessions. Dean is a fellow Filipino blogger. This young man is only 13 years old and his command of the English language is excellent. Young as he is, he's won a number of local journalism awards. It would be a pleasure to watch his development as a writer over the years. I wasn't writing anywhere near as well as he is when I was his age. Well, nothing intellectual anyway. Just the normal teenage-heartthrobbing stuff I'd scribble every day in my pink Little Twin Stars diary. The menage a trois comprised of Lizza, beer, and ciggies was still nonexistent in those days. Ah, wholesomely good times they were.
