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.

Congratualtions on the second go-round of this award!

Turnbaby said...

Your take on that Meme was most excellent (as usual) and you definitely deserved recognition sugar.

Daddy Papersurfer said...

I hope that Deans' command of English is better than yours - 'comprised of'!!!!!!!!!! - you never, ever need 'of' after 'comprise'.

[Congrats on the award my lovely.... and it's good to have you back as well]

Lizza said...

Citizen: Thank you very much!

TB: I remember you were so honored as well for a very touching post. Love you, sugar.

DaddyP: Oh you purist. Resistance to "comprised of" is waning (much like how people aren't complaining that much anymore about ending sentences in a preposition). But to avoid offending your grammatical sensibilities, I vow not to use "comprised of" in the next 24 hours.

Thank you, my darling DaddyP. I hope you know I appreciate you despite my words. Always a pleasure to see you here.

Congratulations. Speaking for myself, I can't get enough of you doing memes.

Lizza said...

Thanks, Photo! I appreciate that.

Travis said...

Congratulations! I enjoyed that post.

Dean said...

Congrats on the rising blogger award. You deserve it!

Thanks a bunch for mentioning me in your latest post. Thanks for the props as well. You're an excellent writer, I'd argue. Much better than me. (I will faithfully and ardently defend that! ü)

More power,
Dean

Lizza said...

Trav: Thank you very much!

Dean: Thanks a lot! (still quietly disagreeing, though. ü).

Congrats on the second win, and yes, I'm glad Prometheus is posting again. I hope he can stick around a while.
I'm also glad that you have the comment thingy as a pop-up. This way I was able to move the comment thingy around to give those poor lions some privacy.

Prometheus said...

Honored, Prometheus is to be mentioned over here at this blog that can't stop winning awards. Yer the bestest Liz.

Frank the Foxx, great to see you here. And only you could have the prudence to allow them lions some privacy behind the comment popup ;-)
