who you calling lame-o?

shecanfilmit, the friend I do believe that got me started blogging in the first place, passed along a meme (these dreaded, dreaded memes!) that gives me a chance to prove just how cool I think I am. Here goes:

TO DO: List 5 things that certain people (who are not deserving of being your friend anyway) may consider to be “totally lame,” but you, despite the possible stigma, are totally proud of. Own it. Tag 5 others:

1. I don't consider New York City pizza to be the best in the world. That honor falls to Blondie's Pizza in Berkeley, California. (Also: I don't fold the slice in half length-wise to eat it. If I wanted pizza that way, I'd just order a calzone.)

2. I like Star Trek. I'll even go out on a limb and say that "Deep Space Nine" is my favorite series (and Avery Brooks as The Sisko rocks my socks off). Sure, lots of people dis Star Trek.... but why? It's my theory that everyone actually likes it or would like it if they gave it a chance, whether they're afraid to admit it or not.

3. A good vodka & tonic is perhaps my favorite cocktail drink. I've been told it's an old lady drink. I think not! But if that's the case, I guess old ladies have good taste in booze.

4. I love to watch "60 Minutes". Always insightful and on-target reporting, always with a slightly (and unabashedly) liberal spark for good measure. I guess I'm just in touch with my inner 65 year old. I also have a crush on Lesley Stahl.

5. Taco Bell is my fast food downfall. Mind you, I'm not a big fast food eater, I try to avoid it actually, but Taco Bell is one of those places I walk into and everything on the menu looks good. The very mention of Taco Bell makes my mouth water. Rumor has it their "beef" is mostly beef-flavored soy product. I still love it.... ALL of it.

Feel free to tag amongst yourselves.

I applaud you for following up with the tag/meme. I'm an evader of tags and have bargained with my readers/fellow bloggers to not tag me.

So you're in BKLYN? I'm in NYC, too! I'm a stand-up comedienne blogging her way to stardom. And, yes, I also categorize myself as a writer (sigh). There apparently aren't enough of us.

Anyway, it was just darling to come across your blog. Perhaps, we'll bump into each other on the NYC streets.

I completely agree with you on Blondie's and I used to go there weekly, when I was exiled in Walnut Creek.

Though I'm more inclined toward a gin & tonic than vodka tonic, aren't an old-fashioneds, pink ladies and cosmopolitans, really old lady drinks?

Leslie Stahl is still a babe and you had me on your meme, all the way up until "Taco Smell." Ugh, c'mon, man. You've been to real taquerias, you know better than that.
