Now that this towering meme is finished I tag (with humble apologies masking mischievous glee) my wife, Chris, and Danigirl.

Update: Keeping the meme alive – Danigirl and Chris.


  1. No way you get penalized for being late–you’ve had way too much on your mind to worry about a stupid meme.

    And that cartoon of Edna is hilarious.

  2. I’m in! Thanks for the tag!

    I love the wallpaper photo! And hey, wouldn’t Heironymous Blog be a great title for a blog?

  3. Danigirl, I like Heironymous Brush as well. Perhaps I’ll use H. Blog after the name change, though. Thanks for keeping the meme alive.

    George, Thanks for your understanding. I was worried that my MPA (meme point average) would suffer.
