|07:25 pm - Utter Failure at Making Up a Meme|
I want to make up my own meme, but I can't.
See, I zip by the cool 30 Days o' TV meme, or the variants thereof, and I think "What ho!" (like in my head I'm a cross-gender-cast Bertie Wooster or somethin', jeez), and then I think "I am too mentally exhausted to play in the meme-sandbox, I can't even listlessly throw
sand names of TV shows around with my little red shovel."
So I don't. Do the meme, I mean.
And then I think, "What ho!" (see Wooster, Bertie, tragic not-being) and, further, "Why don't I make up my own?"
And the reason is that I can't think. A meme must have a [Caution: Rhyme Ahead] theme. I am theme-less. Themes flit through my grasping fingers and sail to other, worthier, non-Wooster-obsessed people.
Theme-less, meme-less, la.
(But if I were going to do the TV meme, I would say that I loved a lot of 80s opening credits because they were all id-vortexy, and I would link you to the opening for "Midnight Caller," a TV show all about manpain in late-80s San Francisco but with Gary Cole doing a deep-voiced thing which still pleases. Luckily I'm, as you see, meme-less.)
May YOU all have themes to take you through the rest of the week, though! :-)
I never saw Midnight Caller, but it does have a cool intro!
Hi, Gwynne, are you packing yet? :-)
In any event-- 1) all I really remember of Midnight Caller was the hotness of Gary Cole, who was an evening DJ who fought crime (as you do), and 2) hugs!
Packing won't commence until tomorrow, but tonight I must extricate my suitcase from its perch on a high closet shelf!
Happy extrication, then. :-)
Midnight Caller! Gary Cole! ::swoons:: Oh, I loved that show so much. Thanks for the memory, L!
His voice was amazing, as I recall. I am a sucker for a great voice. :-)
Happy Tuesday, C!
I've never come up with a meme because I would need to do too much fact-checking and I am lazy.
If the meme is meant to be, it will come! *is zen*
I love your Zen! :-)
Happy Wednesday, K, with extra joy.

Oh, I remember "Midnight Caller" very fondly due to Gary Cole's "deep-voiced thing" and concerned looks. Thanks for the memories, rather than the meme :)
I didn't do the 30 Days of TV meme because I'm incapable of making up my mind about any of it for longer than 30 seconds!
The TV meme does bring up memories -- I'm glad my not-a-meme brought back good ones for you. :-)
(I do love a deep, husky male voice, it has to be said.)
Happy Wednesday, with all good memories!
I remember Midnight Caller in flashes and impressions -- the voice, the world-weariness, San Francisco at night, Cole's leather jacket, reflections off the water of San Francisco Bay. I don't remember one episode all the way through, though. ;-)
Happy Wednesday, L, with all good things!
Oh, I remember Midnight Caller!
Hurrah for remembering, and happy Wednesday beachside! [hugs]
Hugs and a good Wednesday, L! Sending good thoughts!
Sigh. Memes sound like so much work, esp. in the summer heat. Now I'm sorry I never got around to watching Midnight Caller, since I too am sucker for the deep-voiced thing.
::Raises a hand for a Bertie-Wooster-meme, if meme there must be::
If you want a taste of deep-voiced delight [grin], here's a teaser for a later episode
, in which Gary Cole's Jack Killian is deliciously growly and silly all at the same time.
And heee, I'd have to think to come up with a Wooster-meme! I shall ponder.
Happy Wednesday, A! [hugs]
That intro brings back many happy memories. Thanks for linking.
Hurrah for good memories! :-)
And happy Friday, too.
