Machelle Hates Me ;)

How do I know? Because she tagged me with the "5 Things" meme....

5 Things That Society At Large Enjoys That I Don't Get

#5 Cable Television--I can't afford cable or a dish.

Oh, wait!!!! 5 Things I don't understand why others enjoy.....Okay.

#5 Sushi--why do people eat bait? I don't get it.

#4 Pajamas as outerwear--what's up with that? I don't get it.

#3 Double Mocha Frappuccino with a Twist--don't these people like coffee? I don't get it.

#2 Basketball--yes, I live in Indiana, but Hoosier Hysteria needs treated with Valium or something. I don't get it.

#1 "Reality" TV shows--everything from Survivor to Judge Judy. What's the fascination? I don't get it.

Now I'm supposed to "tag" some other people, but I'm still waiting for responses from the last time I did the meme thing, so I'm going to break the chain, and hope my currently bad luck doesn't get any worse....However, if you'd like to be tagged, just volunteer in my comments and I'll see what I can do...

UPDATE: Speaking of things I don't get--journalists' terminology.
Title of the article: "Afghan Forces Find Bodies of 76 Rebels." Ok, I understand that.
In the text of the article: "In all, a total of 178 militants have been killed and 56 suspected insurgents have been captured..."
So we are killing "militants," capturing "insurgents," and finding the bodies of "rebels." I guess there must be a scorecard somewhere--or maybe they can tell the difference from their uniforms...

Heh - I got hit with this meme too... *grin* but I have to say that I just can't drink straight coffee - I've never been able to do it. My dad raised me on tea... way different taste.

I love frappucinos on the very hottest days - but otherwise I adore Soy Mochas - 3 shots of espresso, chocolate and soy milk... it doesn't get any better. *grin*

"If you wanted a cup of cream and sugar, why'd you ask for coffee?"
