Effortlessly Average

Sort of half-heartedly leading the charge into mediocrity since, oh, let's say around 1987 or so.

Proof that with internet access and a powerful laxative, even insipid people will blog; the place where your excellence and my mediocrity collide; where my Karma whips ass on your dogma.

A Glimpse At An Average Life

I always said I'd never do one of these posts because like a Top 40 hit, they're WAY over-played. But that was before I was tagged by my own bride, so now I feel compelled to respond because that's just the kind of husband I am damn it! If this kind of post gives you the same sensation as, oh I dunno, having your teeth flossed through you genitals , then you may want to skip Effortlessly Average today and return at a future date. However, as I have only six readers (five if you don't include my wife), I don't think I'm at risk of becoming anything more than marginally more unpopular than I already am. Remember, I'm Effortlessly Average.

So, here goes. Four Things Meme:

Wait. Before I get going, what the freak does "Meme" mean anyway? Is it Me-Me, as in "it's all about Me?" It can't be pronounced "meem" because that just makes no sense, unless of course it's Polish for "watch how many people we can convince to reveal waaaay too much about themselves in an obvious continuation of the 80's chain letter craze." Is Meme someone's name? Could this be the person who had finally tired of launching emails about lost children; toilet-dwelling spiders; email tracking payment programs a la Microsoft, M&Ms, or Nike, all ending with the assertions that "this is true because it happened to my sister's friend's gardener's brother's wife who knows this attorney whose firm worked on a case just like this, so it has to be true?" Did your brain short circuit reading that last sentence? Mine did, and now I can't understand it enough to edit it, so I'm letting it stand. With any luck it'll come across as educated.

Anyway, Four Things Meme:
