Tuesday Meme-ery

I have a few memes to fill in. I decided to do it on LJ mainly because of the added benefit of the LJ cut. I haven't figured out how to do it on Blogger, and it's all too easy to import posts into Facebook.

So with that, the memes. Note that to read them, you'll have to click on the link corresponding to the meme.

Meme #1: Sixteen Little Things. I was tagged by Trisha.

Once you've been tagged, you have to write a note with 16 random things, shortcomings, facts, habits or goals about you. At the end choose 16 people to be tagged, listing their names and why you chose them. You have to tag the person who tagged you.

Well, first of all, I would much rather not tag people on memes. If they feel so inclined to fill in the meme, then I leave it up to them to post the meme on their blog, Facebook, LJ, etc.

So the only person I will tag is the one who tagged me first. Just because, Cousin Mine.

Meme #2: Guess That Movie. Stolen from Faryn B.

  • Pick 15 of your favorite movies.
  • Go to IMDb and find a quote from each movie.
  • Post them here for everyone to guess.
  • Strike it out when someone guesses correctly, and put who guessed it and the movie.
  • NO GOOGLING/using IMDb search or other search functions.
  • No looking at my favorite movies on my Facebook, MySpace, or Flixter pages ...

Hmmm. Well, the only reason why I'd consider this is because ... well, look at this Rickman movie meme I did back in mid-October. So as you can probably guess, yes, this will be a "Guess the Rickman Movie" meme. The quotes will be drawn from films, both from the small and large screen, in which Rickman has appeared over his ca. 30+-year acting career. If you feel like playing, leave your answers in the combox either on LJ, on Facebook, or on Blogger. I'll post the updates on LJ.

Meme #3: The Meme about Memes and Blogging. Yanked from Sunday Stealing. I'll have to blame JunoMagic for this one as she was the one who introduced me to this blogger in the first place! Well, not directly, of course, but still ...

The Meme about Memes and Blogging

Whew! Well, have at it. Feel free to yank any or all memes from this space. And remember - if you want to play "Guess that Rickman film", leave a comment and I'll let you know whether you're hot, warm, or cold. :-)

Pax vobiscum ...

Well, Faryn and dressagegrrrl have given the Rickman Movie Meme a go, leaving only 1, 3, 4, 5, 10, 11, 12, and 14 unanswered.

Does anyone else care to give this one a go?

After Ana has weighed in, the only ones left unanswered are 1, 3, 4, and 5.

I will admit - those might be a little more difficult. Here are a couple of hints.

1 and 3 were from made-for-TV films.

4 and 5 are two of his earlier films.

Lyn F. said...

Okay, Faryn's got #5.

The only ones left are 1, 3, and 4. Any guesses?

Lyn F. said...

Only 1 and 3 left now. They might be a bit more difficult to guess. I'll give it about a week or so before I reveal the answers.

Well, the meme is complete: Monica on LJ correctly answered the last two quotes.

If you want to have a look at the answers, click the Rickman Movie Meme link above.

I also wrote up an Alan Rickman quiz on Flixster. I also wrote an Alan Rickman quiz on Flixster as well. It also contains 15 questions. Click here to try it.

My meme is now complete! If anyone wants to return this to Faryn's original meme, be my guest. I just don't think I've watched enough non-Anime and non-Alan Rickman films to be able to put together 15 film quotes ...
