I saw this on Prometheus's blog who tagged himself after reading Lizza's blog (which i actually read too, but it was quite long ago). Anyway, it looked pretty interesting and all, and I was bored, so I actually tagged myself... more out fo curiosity than anything else.

38/150 = 25%

If you read this part, that means this is the 3rd time I'm publishing this post. You see, in my half unawakened state this morning, I hit my head on the doorway (accidentally, of course!) and now, I'm a bit of a blubbering idiot. First I spelt 'actually' as 'catually' and then left it there to be published, next I repaired my PS at the bottom of the page, because something was wrong with it, and then as I read the page again, I noticed that I had failed to describe the objective of this meme...

Objective: What you have to do is copy this whole thing in your blog, feel free to delete the parts in the parantheses, and bold the sentences which describe things you have done.

I hope this is the last edit...

PS: Does anyone know where's 98?


  1. Terragirl! Good to see you've done that long long meme. Oh yeah, 98 kinda hated the meme so she just eloped with 151.

  2. aunty: yay!!! it's funny how memes make you get to know yourself better :)

    prometheus: Yeah, finally! Well, lets just hope that 98 and 151 are happy together :D

  3. Eeek I was tagged by Mimi for this meme a week ago but can't quite manage to do it!

    But what I want to know is - what superhero were you pretending to be....?

  4. you get a A for effort for doing this...I may try it some day...
    (Thanks for the visit).

  5. maryam: I thought it would be a super tremendously tough thing to do, but it wasn't that bad, if you exclude the 3 edits... I just saw that I spelt of as fo... but thats another story.

    I used to imagine I was Spiderman (or woman actually, when I was a kid... I might have been a feminist then too)

    odat: thank you... :)
    Peace and thanks for dropping by :)

  6. Oh, I like this. A great way to get readers to learn more about you. I'm gonna do it, too!

  7. This was very interesting. Reading it over, I could actually write an article about a lot of the items on it. You can read it at my website.

    The 98 is probably Windows 98, which Microsoft is no longer supporting, so that they can force people to buy new computers and make Bill Gates richer. Don't get me started...

  8. I flicked this meme off your blog. Basically I had nothing better to do now that my exams are over :-)

  9. Hi, I just wanted to let you know that I have done a sort of statistical study of responses to this meme, and that yours was one of the blogs chosen for the sample. (I tried to let the unwitting participants know through trackbacks, but apparently the spam-filters caught all but a few of these).

    The first of the results are posted on my site here.
