"Hit me with your best shot!"

Posted on Thursday, August 9, 2007 in memememememe, Quickie, Something to think about

There’s another tag of sorts floating about… but this one is a darn good idea if y’ask me!

Going Like Sixty has given us the great excuse to repost a dusty blog post, which is something we’d all love to do without being called a cheat.  Remember the days when you first started out blogging, when post comments were slim to none?  This is your chance to regurgitate those under-appreciated posts for others to chew on for a while.

I choose my first ever post, which is ‘Spider Babies’.  I wrote it when my dad was nagging me to start blogging despite my protests.  I threw it up on the blog section of my myspace profile for the laugh, just to see what blogging was like.  I suppose it’s the post that got me hooked.

So, here’s your chance, and here are the rules;

1. Go choose one post which you would like to use as an example of your under-appreciated genius, and link it.

2. Link to the person who last suggested the ‘best shot’ idea.

3. Suggest the idea to others, then make sure you read, and comment on their regurgitated posts.

Go on then… git browsing!

    Enjoyed it again.

    Your dad was right you DO have talent.

    Keep going Girl!

    Grannymar this might sound rude but I mean it as the highest compliment; you’re like a Golden Retriever, always loyal and brimming with enthusiasm! (And very beautiful to look at of course!) People like you keep me going.

    Good idea. Although I haven’t been blogging that long, I picked the above one.

  5. […] it on Going Like Sixty who she said has given us the great excuse to repost a dusty blog post. K8 used her very first attempt to lure us into her life and it is as good now as it was when I first […]

    Thus proving that blogging is every bit as addictive and damaging as cocaine.

  7. […] first bit is difficult for me as I have seen it on a few sites. There’s K8 the Gr8, Grannymar, Robert Sweenam, and of course GoingLikeSixty who I think started the current rash this […]

    Question 1, Paper 2:
    Written Expression

    Friendster – what the hell is it and why should I join it?

    Write an essay or persuasive speech on the above topic.. (60)

    Friendster – what the hell is it and why should I join it?

    The question is not what it is, it is rather what it is not. It is not different, or new. It is not enlightening in any way. It does not really have a point. It is merely a tool by which you may send unwanted ‘sign up’ emails to people, purely to vex them. The irony is that even though these people are aware that these sites are a waste of virtual space, there is still quite a lot of willpower required NOT to sign up. It may, after all, be another path to the common desire that is… accidental popularity.

  11. Daz says:

    Irrestible urge to join … no!!
    (cuts off hand)

    Now what do I do if the other one tries to make me join??

  12. K8 says:

    Send some hired goons over to it and give it a good talking to… *wink*

    I loved your spider baby piece. Now I know I’m not alone in catching bugs and spiders into bits of newspaper and depositing this outside and telling them to “go home” now!

    I know for a fact that I caused a blizzard in the U.S. in 1978 because I caught a mouse in a trap in the basement; he wasn’t dead and instead of letting him go I deposited him, trap and all, into the garbage can outside in freezing weather. I still shudder thinking of his slow freezing death. The next day the house was virtually buried with up to 15 feet of snow. It was my fault, I tell you!

  14. K8 says:

    Thanks Alice! Poor mouse! How could you?! ;)

    Don’t worry about retribution… if I find a spider in the bath tub I sometimes just flush him with the shower hose then plug him. We have floods here all the time because the weather’s crap, but I never reckon it’s karma.. I’d worry about becoming a mouse or a spider in the next existence though?

    My cat keeps bringing home dead rats too which freaks my neighbour out no end!!!
