my-my! I'm doing a me-me!

Giggles has asked me to take part in a me-me or a mi-mi thing-thing.

I wasn’t entirely sure what it was, so I looked it up and I read that “a meme ( pronounced /mi:mi/) is a unit or element of cultural ideas, symbols or practices that transmit from one mind to another through speech, gestures, rituals, or other imitable phenomenon”

I was more confused still after reading that! So I thought I’d just do exactly what the rules say, which is open the nearest book to page 46 then write out the fifth sentence on that page, and also the next five on that page. Still not very clear but here goes.

Nearest book is The Tales of Beedle the Bard by J.K.Rowling. It’s her book of five fairy tales, and the book shop girl told me that it’s one of this Christmas's biggest selling books for young people – like me! Now let’s look at page 45, no 46! Silly me!

The warlock gloried in his indifference and the sagacity that had produced it. ( oo-err! Some long words there!)

The first freshness of youth waned, and the warlock’s peers began to wed, and then to bring forth children.

“Their hearts must be husks” he sneered inwardly, as he observed the antics of the
young parents around him, shriveled by the demands of these mewling offspring!”

Now I have a problem. The book is quite a teenie weanie one and I’ve got to the bottom of the page. Actually the two next sentences are quite short, so I’ll copy them from page 46

And once again he congratulated himself upon the wisdom of his early choice.

In due course the warlock’s parents died.

Now, if you have the faintest idea what that’s all about you are very clever indeed. I haven’t a clue!

I’m supposed to ask five more people to have a go, but I don’t really know everyone well enough yet. Keith said I should ask for volunteers so that’s what I’ll do. I know he’s been tagged (technical term) by Lucy to have a go so I can’t ask him.

I hope I got it right!

Thank you Rosey you did an excellent job at your first meme. There are many going around blog land. I hope you join in more! I suspect many of the readers are busy with holiday preparations and unable to visit with any frequency for the time being! What else are you doing to prepare for the season? I love your Christmas banner...very festive!

Hugs Giggles
