Relatives and friends memes

Relatives and friends memes: First meme: The Bloglines meme (I’m blaming this on Doc who blames it on Joesph, etc.). You find your blog on bloglines.com and click “related blogs.” For example, here are the weblogs to which Bloglines says rexblog is related. As there are a lot of blogs on the list I have not encountered before, I’m looking forward to meeting the new relatives.

Okay, the second meme: Name ten bloggers you’d like to invite to an imaginary dinner party. Shawn Lea invited me to hers.

Which reminds me of an old joke I just made up:

Q. What is the proper way to respond to an imaginary blogger dinner party invitation?

A. With an RSSVP.

    It’s always nice to start the week by learning something. “What is Meme?” I wondered – recalling that the last time I had heard that word was when a friend was telling me about her grandmother, who, sadly, is suffering from advancing Alzheimer’s. Which makes the definition of the word, to me, somewhat sadly poignant.
