Posted by Peg in South Carolina

I just realized that Leigh tagged me for this meme. Here are the instructions as they appeared in Leigh’s post:

*Go to your sixth picture folder and pick your sixth picture.
*Pray you remember the details.
*Tag five others.

My sixth picture folder is titled Christmas 2007. The sixth picture is of my Chuck opening presenthusband. I have no recollection whatsoever of the present he is opening…..

For those curious about such things, the room immediately behind Chuck (the room with the white bookcase) is the breakfast room where my loom resides.

Also, the sweater he is wearing was knit many years ago by yours truly when I was in my knitting machine phase.

These are the five bloggers I have tagged:

The Twisted Warp

Tien’s Blog




Here, by the way, is one definition of meme that I found.

A meme (IPA: /mi:m/) is defined within memetic theory as a unit of cultural information, cultural evolution or diffusion that propagates from one mind to another analogously to the way in which a gene propagates from one organism to another as a unit of genetic information and of biological evolution. Multiple memes may propagate as cooperative groups called memeplexes (meme complexes).

I found many other definitions that were quite similar. I have no idea how the “tagging” community came up with this word.

What a great photo.

Interesting about the definition of meme. I think I looked it up once a long time ago, but I don't recall the explanation being so wordy and highfalutin. AT least we know what we mean.

Thanks,Peg! I mean, really, thanks! I've completed the task and now it's up to those I've tagged!

Thanks for the definition Peg, I find it makes more sense than the Wikipedia entry.

FiberGeek, I guess I should have expected that. Thanks for letting me know.
Thank you, Leigh.
