Okay...I've never done one of these thingys before. I have no idea what they are, much less how to pronounce the word "meme". Is it like that thing singers do to warm up? "ME ME ME ME ME" Is it pronounced "may-may"? What is it? I'm confused. But that's not rare.
So I stumbled across this one at The Write Coast and thought it would be a good way to say goodbye to 2006 and hello to 2007, and I know I promised not to do that, but I guess I'm at a loss for interesting things to say here. I thought I'd give this a go.
