Memed

Mr. Winter, who will pay, got me with this:

1. Imagine it’s 2015. You are visiting the library at a major research university. You go over to a computer terminal (or whatever it is they use in 2015) that gives you immediate access to any book or journal article on any topic you want. What do you look up? In other words, what do you hope somebody will have written in the meantime?

Medical journals with cures for AIDs, cancer, drug/alcohol addiction, birth defects, and heart disease.

2. What is the strangest thing you’ve ever heard or seen at a conference? No names, please. Refer to “Professor X” or “Ms. Y” if you must. Double credit if you were directly affected. Triple if you then said or did something equally weird.

Pass. I don't want to be the one to ruin what's left of that marriage.

3. Name a writer, scholar, or otherwise worthy person you admire so much that meeting him or her would probably reduce you to awestruck silence.

Dr. Jonas Salk if he were still alive, or Dr. Maya Angelou.

4. What are two or three blogs or other Web sites you often read that don’t seem to be on many people’s radar?

Bartleby
HyperHistory
Smithsonian


Now, no more memes or quizzes, I gotta move this week. Oh, and Carter? You are SO tagged.

  2. I refer any and all moral outrage to one David White, who started it. Well, actually, Duane Swer- Swer... Swearathimlikehedeservestobeski started it.

  4. I'm with Mary Stella on number two. Several names are popping into my head. :-D

  5. Romance writers always know all the good dirt, don't we, ladies? :)

    No more interesting memes, Carter, I beg you. I have four thousand stuffed animals to pack before I can pry my daughter out of this house. We won't even discuss my son and his nine million Yu-Gi-Oh cards.

    I forgive you, Jim, but only so you won't be distracted from beating Powell.
