My Five Favorite Uncarved Blocks

So if I were to do one of these 'list your five favorite whatevers' memes, I'd have to do research... I mean, what the hell? You people keep these things in your head, you just know them? in order?

...

[Aha, a regression! I'd already solved this before by keeping written lists of my favorite things in one of the sections of my day planner. Apparently I lost that 'feature' when I moved from a paper system to PalmOS, many years ago.]

I don't think people take the accuracy of their answers that seriously. :) They just type what occurs to them at the time.

(And of course, sometimes I don't participate in memes because they require more thought than I want to give.)

In my head? No way! It took days for me to put down my 5 fave songs and there was a ridiculous amount of listening and relistening and I still wrote that it was subject to change. Now ask me my favorite ice cream and that one I've got in my head (and my freezer). :)

Yeah - I sorta shoot from the hip on those types of memes. My problems are liking too many things and not recalling ALL of them right at that moment. But, I ponder it for a minute or so and then put a that'll-do type answer.

If it involves too much thinking, I , too, skip it. But, either way it gives a decent idea of who you are. Which I think is mostly the point.

Personally, I'm OCD and like making lists. So...yeah, sorta.

Unfortunately I worry that by having this (sometimes) useless info running around in my head, I'll be less of a sponge to soak up new and exciting (if often irrelevant) information. But perhaps I'm not being fair to my brain by assuming it's an all or nothing situation.

The thing that disturbs me about filling out favorites lists is that they're so revealing. I mean, what if everybody thinks I'm a dork because I still listen to 80s hair bands? (I mean, everybody probably does, and no, I shouldn't worry about it, but dude, I worry. 'S what I do.) So if I bother to reply to favorites-memes, it's always tongue-in-cheeck, intended to poke somebody's buttons, and never 100% accurate. I'm just too wary.

Didn't you used to have a list of all the books you've ever read, ranked by goodness? That should solve the research problem for the inevitable book meme.

Yeah, all of this journaling stuff is revealing, and you're right, the quizzes where you have to generate favorites lists are very much so.

But it's fun. Endearingly silly exhibitionists all.

I do have a books-read list somewhere, but it's unranked.
