Surprising Meme Game facts

I just returned from a nice week's vacation, and during my offslope hours, I enjoyed reading the Yankee Swap posts and the meme game. After four months in the blogosphere, my big surprise is how personal blogging is becoming... and that naturally leads to the realization of the oft-cited online virtual societies (first made popular in the novel Snow Crash). Six months ago I was a fairly private person, but now I'm proud to be a part of all this...

Here are some surprising meme game facts:

Teresa  - a stand-up comedienne? I buy that!
Jim  - banned from Cuba for trying to get a ballplayer to defect
Kris  - game show diva
Greg   - now we know why Bloodhound has so many writers... Greg's other calling is being a novelist
Jeff   - semipro soccer player... what is not surprising is his 9 dislocated fingers... I've heard from another soccer goalie friend that dislocating them is better than spraining them because you can still play.
Mary - Traveling Texas bikini team... it's not a surprise, but I had to include it. And I have to ask Mary what that was all about when we meet in NY next month.
Geno   - our newly annointed Blog Class Clown quotes from mob movies (no big surprise, it's just... Geno)... I can't find the link any more, but Geno introduced himself to me after my referral to his funny post with the Joe Pesci Goodfella line "you think I'm funny?!"
Marlow   - my favorite curmudgeon is so eclectic all ten facts seem unrelated. Pleased to say our experiences overlap - 1. worked in radio, 2. first job out of college was music related, 3. lived in Japan and love Tokyo (only if I don't live there), 4. wargamed when I was a kid (akin to being into scifi).

      Hey Lar, technically you are in the "Male over 40" Curmudgeon class... dang, you look young for a proud 30-bagger grandkid/great grandkid head of family... you must have the jolliest of Christmases over at the Cragun house... thanks for the holiday greetings! I look forward to catching up with you some day soon...

    The fingers started popping out so easily and often that I would snap them back into place, mid play...which was fine until about an hour after the game, when the adrenaline wore off....then I had to hold many cold glasses of beer to make them feel better

      I've heard that story before too... and it always amazes me. I'm glad I stick to shooting hoops and piano playing...
