Stolen Meme from Badger

I swear, I won't do another lectury post today.

I saw this over t'Badger's place the other day; thought it was purty and that I really deserved to have it.

The "Things that Are Overrated" Meme:

  • New Year's Eve
  • Halloween
  • The Pink Panther
  • 95-degree days in October
  • The Matrix
  • Flan
  • Guero's and El Chile in Austin
  • Skiing
  • Scotch/Whiskey/Bourbon (or whatever you want to call the vile liquid)
  • Big, hot, outdoor music festivals
  • Blade Runner
Accompanied by the "Things that are Most Decidedly Not Overrated" Meme:
  • Jon Stewart (Iraq is a "catastrofuck." Brilliant.)
  • Really excellent Italian food
  • Apparently, Missouri Tiger football. (6-0. Who knew?)
  • A great haircut combined with Aveda highlights and a big fat glass of Pinot Grigio
  • Young Frankenstein
  • If I could ever afford it, wine from Cakebread Cellars
  • Lost (the season premiere was GREAT!)
  • The Office
  • Bookhart's excellent links (How do you find them? This one's my favorite. A brief sample:

And finally, the "Dead to Me" Meme:
  • Dennis Miller
  • Christopher Hitchens
  • the Curra's on Burnet
  • almost every ex-boyfriend I have ever had
  • pretty much my life prior to college, except Connie, Erin, Inga, and Tricia
  • teaching
  • permanents

Oh dude. The weather and the festivals, I totally agree. (Still love Guero's, though. And flan.)

Also agree on Young Frankenstein which I OWN and can recite by heart, practically. The drunker I get, the more of the dialogue I remember. He. Vas. My. BOYFRIEND!

Love the "Dead To Me" variation. I will have to do that. Except I don't know if there's enough bandwidth IN THE WORLD to contain all the people/things that are dead to me.

I'm sorry, I still like Halloween. I don't think I've had flan......

Okay, have to beg to differ. Well, I won't beg. Snow skiing is the bomb. But only if you've been doing it a while and are really good at it and almost never fall and look sexy as you swoosh effortlessly down the slope. To feed the soul, you can stop every once in a while to marvel at the amazing views. And at the end of the day, you celebrate with a warm shower, cold beer, and pleasantly sore muscles... HEAVEN. But I'm weird that way.

Okay, we'll just have to agree to disagree on whiskey and flan, but you are wrong, wrong, wrong about the Pink Panther. Peter Sellers was a friggin' genius. OG is almost old enough to appreciate those now. We should own copies of those.
