    Tag Day: A Perfect World  While on vacation last week, I was tagged by Mike, of Chompy and Mike   :   1) In a perfect world, we'd never have to hear another word from  Jack Thompson    .   2) In a perfect world,  Arnold Schwarzenegger  would be president and  Kim Jong-Il  would have never discovered politics.  3) In a perfect world,  all fast food  would be free.  4) In a perfect world,  Nickelback  would give free concerts every night and  a tribe of hungry cannibals  would be their roadies.  5) In a perfect world, the highest paid job would be  DVD reviewer  and benefits would include  the final ...

    Safari Day: Evolution of a Tag  The tag I started six months ago only made it through five generations before dying   . How did the "Soundtrack of My Life" tag fare?       BU (Wedding: Leonard Bernstein - Oh Happy We)   CC ( died here )      Sam ( Dance Sequence: Theme from Transformers, The Movie )    Brianne ( Breaking Up: New Order - Bizarre Love Triangle )    Mike ( Falling in Love: "Squeeze My Lemons..." I am obviously in love with a total tramp. )   Christine ( died here )      Jamie ( Prom: Led Zeppelin - Ramble On - Looks like I went to the prom with ...

    Tag Day: Soundtrack of Our Lives   I borrowed today's idea from a bulletin that Anna answered on MySpace, the world's most poorly designed social networking site. Simply load your entire playlist on your favourite music-playing device (be it an iPod, WinAMP, your 99-disc CD changer, or a comely soprano named Katya) and hit the Shuffle button. Then, use the shuffled playlist make the soundtrack for the movie of your life, using the life events in the table below. The choices Shuffle bestows upon your life will range the gamut from completely nonsensical to eerily perfect.  Long time readers will remember that the movie of my life is currently in production   , so creating the soundtrack is the logical next step. I now tag Mike  , Bria...

    Safari Day: Tracking the Tag   In an egotistical effort to leave my mark on the Internet (and not content with already having Uniform Resource Identifiers    ) I created my very first tag last month. The subject of the tag was the number four: four things I know, four things I used to know, four things I want to know, and four things I don't know and don't care about. Now that fifty days have passed, I thought I would see just how insidious my tag was.   BU    (also known as the founding father of four play)   Brianne     (failed to tag anyone new)  Mark   (also failed to tag anyone, but better late than never)  Anna   (tagged all of her work friends, beca...

    Tag Day: LOST Numbers   Mike   is now watching the first season of LOST (which he says is boring) and created his very first tag:  How Do the LOST Numbers Apply to You? . The numbers are a series of digits that appear in many places throughout the show, which may or may not have any significance to the plot at large: 4 8 15 16 23 42.    4 : The maximum number of cats you can have in a household for an extended period of time without paranoid feelings that they are everywhere watching everything, slowly taking control of your house.   8 : I was eight years old when I was in fourth grade (4!). I have never played a game involving eight-sided dice (why would you ever need more than 6, which is ha...

    Tag Day: Point of Know Return  There has not been enough foreign exchange of democracy and ideas between my site and others recently, most likely because of the recent discovery that some of them are un-American, so I want to rectify this situation by making up a tag. To effectively achieve geographical diversity and the diaspora of BU-related themes and paraphernalia across the World Wide Web, I will be tagging the following  four  kids: Kim  , Anna  , Mark  , and Brianne  . Notice that today's tag is brought to you by the number  four .   Four Things I Know     I know how to make a tasty Beef Stroganoff.  I know how to navigate to anywhere in the real Alexandria (not the fak...

    Tag Day: Six Weird or Unusual Habits   I was tagged by Anna   on Friday. It's becoming increasingly hard to come up with things that aren't already on my 222 Things About Me page  but I'll give it my best shot. And by "give it my best shot" I mean I'll kick that ball so far over the fence that the little kids will be crying for hours. Here goes...   If I pet a dog, I will obsessively wash my hands afterwards so they don't smell like dog. Then I'll probably pet the dog again two seconds later, and have to repeat the whole procedure like a Pavlovian test subject who also has the misfortune of being OCD. This doesn't apply to any other animals -- I once licked Booty's nose as the result of losing a bet.   I am an avid bathroom re...

    Tag Day: Four Things  Happy February 1! January was easily the slowest month in the history of months, but it's finally over. Do you feel old yet? I'm chipper today because this is the first February where I've had the calendar up on the sidebar, and it looks like the code I wrote to figure out leap years is working wonderfully.  I wrote today's update on Monday when Kim got tagged, since I presumed a tag would be imminent, but then she decided to upset the status quo by not tagging anyone and I was left with an unprovoked tag post like an overeager European schoolboy trying to clap all the erasers before being asked. That analogy doesn't really work, but analogies are allowed be completely inappropriate as long as they sound unusual enough to in...

    Tag Thursday   My column on effective cat grooming using only a bellows and a half pint of grapefruit juice will be temporarily postponed, as I was tagged yesterday by Kim  to " List 5 things people might not know about you ". Tags are a very serious deal in the blog world for two reasons:    Personal Protection : Breaking a tag is like breaking a chain letter, and usually results in the breaking of legs. Once my friend, Pedro, chose to ignore someone's tag and they broke into his apartment, erased his blog, kicked over his potted philodendron, and then tortured his pet shrimp by deveining it while alive. I don't know if Kim has a mean streak or has ever deveined a shrimp, but I would rather not gamble w...

    Untitled Post   The world of blogging has a practice called "tagging", a chain letter pyramid scheme at its finest, designed to increase readership at your own blog and blogs people might never otherwise discover. Once you are tagged, you're supposed to answer the question and then tag a few more people so the insidious virus of linkbacks has new carriers in its world-dominating conquest of the web. Last week, I was tagged by mtymouse   to list my top six songs of the moment. So here are my picks, with the first two being tried and true favourites (out of many more) and the rest being the Musique Du Jour (catchy today, could be annoying tomorrow). As an added bonus, you get MP3 excerpts of all the songs, since it's always fun to hear new s...
