Is It a Pencast or Is It a Meme?




I still don't REALLY know how to do this, so if you want to read this without going blind, you're going to have to click on each image, which will enlarge it.

Since I was on my laptop with its small screen, I almost didn't read this, but I'm glad that I did.

Oh, I just ate breakfast, but still you're making me hungry ... I agree about fat -- I'd much sooner stay away from sugar than from fat. (Although I tend not to stay away from either ...)

I think it's a graphmeme. How's that for a horrible neologism?
I look forward to trying the Amish bread at some point.

This was funny! I'm jealous of your handwriting, btw...my printing looks like it was done by a fourth-grader, and not a particularly intelligent one.

Eva said...

Oh, and I've tagged you for another meme, but feel free to ignore it! I made it up myself, so it's about books and reading. :)

Cam, I'm glad you did, too!

Dorr, well, I'm not too good at staying away from sugar, either. I finished the bag of way-too-much candy Bob gave me for Christmas, and instead of thinking, "good, that's gone," my first thought was, "I'd better go back to that shop and get some more!" Of course, you're training for a triathalon -- lots of fat and sugar needed for that, right?

MFS, oh yes, a graphmeme. I love it. Let's use it all over the place, and maybe it will enter the lexicon. Whenever anyone asks, "what's a graphmeme?" we can look at them knowingly, and say, "you obviously don't blog, do you?"

Eva, don't be jealous of my handwriting. You don't know how difficult it is to keep it legible, and most of the time, people don't seem to be able to read it. Also, I once checked out a book on handwriting analysis (the new alternative to reading abnormal pyshology texts) and discovered I'm probably bipolar AND schizophrenic. I'll get to the meme as soon as I can (it probably will be just a regular ol' meme and not a graphmeme, since I'm on the road without my scanner).

How have I never heard of that Chicago restaurant? And I can't wait to get back to NY to have Italian and strudel. Three cheers for your whole milk and cheese. My daughter IS a vegan and it's a pain. What is Amish bread like?

Emily Barton said...

Danny, I have no idea, but I'm sure you can recommend all kinds of fabulous places to dine for my next trip to Chicago. I'll meet you at Pisticci's in NY, next time you're on the east coast, if it doesn't happen to be when I'm in Chicago or something (which is typically the case when you come east). Amish bread is very crusty and fluffy. (I'm realizing it's hard to describe.)
