The Ickiest Meme Ever...

LifeMarylin12 Comments

Or the badge is at least. Thanks to Jen AND Nickie, I've been given this, eh, well quite frankly icky award - The Memetastic Award.



I mean look at it. It's ugly, there's comic sans in there, and there's orange in it. I don't really like orange. It's icky.

So here are the "rules":

1. You must proudly display the absolutely disgusting graphic that I have created for these purposes (put it in your post, you don't have to put it in your sidebar, I think that would seriously be asking too much). It's so bad that not only did I use COMIC SANS, but there's even a little fucking jumping, celebrating kitten down there at the bottom. It's horrifying! But its presence in your award celebration is crucial to the memetastic process we're creating here. If you need a higher resolution version... I totally have one!!

2. You must list 5 things about yourself, and 4 of them must be bold-faced lies. Just make some shit up, we'll never know; one of them has to be true, though. Of course, nobody will ever know the difference, so we're just on the honor system here.

3. You must pass this award on to 5 bloggers that you either like or don't like or don't really have much of an opinion about. I don't care who you pick, and nobody needs to know why.


OK, so, #1 is checked. I hope I don't have nightmares of the fluffiness. Oh god, I can imagine it already - raining orange stars, which would be the size of large meteors and I'd be trying to escape them but the damn stupid kitten keeps tripping me up every step! *shudders*


Next is #2 - Five things about me that are all completely true...




  1. I've met Ewan McGregor. (pays to live in the same town as his parents!)

  2. I've met Ainsley Harriot. (sometimes I did refined things in Glasgow too!)

  3. I've met Ricky Tomlinson (who some people used to think my dad was when I was younger!)

  4. I'm related to the guy who invented the TV. (distantly, but still!)

  5. I'm related to the guy who invented the telephone. (again, distantly, but still, claim to fame!)



Now #3 - Erm, god... I have to give this painful award to five other people?


Do I really have to?


Has anyone not got this award yet?


Well, anyway, I'm going to cheat and break the rules by not passing this meme onto anyone. Cause I'm just too damn nice!


Good luck guessing! :P
