Another meme from Museditions
She has a great blog and a lot of thought provoking posts. I don’t like to think too much but when I do I go visit her. Too much thinking causes brain pain.
The Expansionist Meme:
Please thoughtfully consider the following, and choose one item for each of the categories below. (Be sure to describe your reasons for choosing)
~ ~ ~ ~ ~
One religious work from a non-familiar tradition you’ll read:
I have read about Christianity, Buddhism, the I Ching, Wicca. I would probably like to read more about fundamental Muslims to find out why they strap bombs on themselves and kill random people and what makes them think God will reward them for it. That baffles me. I won’t post a picture here. What picture could I possibly post that wouldn’t depress people.
One music video–that you like–from your “least likely to listen to” genre:
I don’t usually get into rap music but here it is: (some profanity, are you surprised?)
A book from a genre you almost never read, that you have read, or you will read (promise!):
I never read Harlequin romance novels. I figure I could read one in ten minutes so it wouldn’t take much time. It might actually be hilarious and I’ll take more time reading it but I’ll give it a try.
Somewhere you’d never thought to go on holiday/vacation, and why it might be fun to go there:
There are a lot of places I have wanted to go like England, Italy, etc. The standard places people always want to see. Lately though, I’ve been thinking about New Zealand. It’s a place I never thought of visiting but now I have blogger friends who live there so I know there are nice people there. Also Lord of the Rings was filmed there and that movie shows beautiful places I would like to see and l used to have a customer that vacationed there every year and loved it. He even brought me back a pair cool knitted mittens one year.
HOBBITON, NEW ZEALAND
A specific food you’ve never tried, but will because of this meme, honest!:
There was an article in the local newspaper this week (why do I read it, I’ll never know) about eating insects. The 17 year cicadas are here and the article talked about how the world should start eating insects. They are high in protein. So, I’ll tell you now–NO FUCKING WAY WILL I EAT AN INSECT. What I will try and have thought about because it is a lean protein is buffalo. I will try that.

A sport or game you really hate, or haven’t tried yet, but are willing to give one more go:
Cane racing? I’ll give it a go as long as I don’t have to go too far or too fast.
CANE RACER IN UNIFORM

A style of dance you probably won’t try (we won’t make you promise on this one):
Your damn right you won’t make me promise because wheelchair dancing is something I only think about but will probably never do.
~ ~ ~ ~ ~
A career or job you don’t feel you’re suited for, and why:
I am not suited do be the boss of people because I don’t like telling people what to do. I am also not suited for having a boss because I don’t like being told what to do.

An item that’s “thinking out of the box” for this meme, that hadn’t been included:
“Thinking out of the box” I already know how most of you want to be cremated so that leaves that out. This is difficult. OK I just thought of one:
What animal do you most identify with as being like yourself and why?
I identify myself with a cat. Sleep a lot during the day, up all night making noise and irritating those who are trying to sleep, eat only one kind of food( cats eat cat food: I eat weight watchers food–same difference) , suddenly getting up and running around and playing with toys and then getting bored after 10 minutes and laying down again. Enjoying just looking out the window with no great desire to actually be out there. Too scary out there. Don’t like being in cars or going to the vet, in my case the doctor. It doesn’t take much to entertain me. Quiet except when hungry and you get to sleep anywhere you want.
MY CATS LIKE TO SLEEP IN BOXES
The person (Museditions) I got this meme from asked:
“What is the one class/course that you never could; never would; never should take or have taken in high school?”
I never should have taken Spanish. I should have taken French. I am French. My mother spoke French but everyone told me Spanish was easier so I took the easy way out. When am I ever going to use Spanish. I have no desire to go to Mexico and all the illegal Mexicans that are here can learn English. I wouldn’t speak to them in Spanish even if I could remember how. I can’t think of a photo to put here that wouldn’t offend someone.

The following was already in the meme so I will just leave it. Though I am none of those things on the list. I might possibly be the last one but only in the form of a blogger.
To proceed with “thinking out of the box” here, I won’t tag specific individuals, because some of you don’t like that; nor will I open it up to “anyone who wants to participate” because hardly anyone does when that’s said. Instead I’ll request a response from at least one person in each of the following categories (more are welcome):
—-a follower of a particular religion
—-a person who believes science will eventually be able to answer our questions
Of course, you may fit into more than one of these categories, as I do myself. You don’t have to tell us which you are, either, just please let me know in the comment, here, if you do the meme. I found this meme challenging and insightful. Hope you enjoy it!
I SAY DO WHATEVER FLOATS YOUR BOAT. HOPEFULLY YOU DO IT BECAUSE I LOVE MEMES AND LOVE TO READ THEM. MEME WHORE, QUEEN, HO, WHATEVER!!!
