meme gakked from multiple friends at this point...
I would like everyone who reads this to post in here something they would LIKE to do with me SOMEDAY.

Then, if you like, post this in your journal to find out what I want to do with you.

I have to wonder why this meme specifies someday rather than at the next available opportunity. It certainly narrows it down.

The first thing I noticed when I walked into your house for a party a year ago, moments before I met you, was issues of Free Inquiry on the coffee table. I thought to myself, "yep, I'm going to get along with whoever lives here just fine." So here is what I intended to do since that time. I would like to ask who in your house subscribes to this periodical, and more importantly why, in as much detail as one is comfortable providing. Such things, in my experience, are personal questions and I tend to put them off until I know someone well. So, someday.

I would like to get together with you and Bill and other friends and play games at your house for an evening. Maybe a movie thrown in there somewhere for good measure.

Then post this in your journal to find out what I want to do with you.

Instead, I ask that you tell me here. I'm curious. :)

That does sound nice.

I would like to someday get our bike fixed up or arrange for a different one and go on a trip with you.

Grab you by the hand, run madly through some reasonably run-able natural flatland until one of us falls down.

Or have cake.

Anne, I love you dearly, and you are one of the most wonderfullest people I know, but this isn't a meme, this is just a LJ version of chainmail spam.

Argh, I'm not yelling at you, I'm just guilty for not doing as you ask because I refuse to participate in spam.

*hug* it's not exactly a chainmail, because it doesn't tell you how you'll get more luck and be successful in your love life if you follow the directions (that part was a secret), but I see what you mean. You should by no means feel pressured to participate or guilty for not participating. I have gone back and reworded the entry to make it (especially the second part) sound a little more optional.

There's a difference?

Well, it is something I've complained about before, what they call a meme here on LJ is not what a real meme is in memetics.

I don't think Anne is really guilty of it, I would just like to see original thoughts and ideas.

How is it not a "real" meme?
In a geeky way, it's "fashionable" to replicate these. And they clearly replicate through human minds. Especially if you think of your journal as secondary storage for your brain (which I do), it fits well in my notion of what constitutes a meme. None of which makes it any more desirable, but does fit the definition.

Regardless of how it fits your definition, this particular one strikes me as desirable to participate in; it gives people permission to ask for expanded social contact.

Local vernacular.

English is highly flexible.

I would like to see you in person again and hang out at your house and tell you in person that Joe and I are having a baby!

oh my god, I would like that too!

Are you really having a baby? When?

(I know this must seem like a very delayed reaction... life is busy. But I'm very excited!)

Take a long walk and talk about books, the city, and whatever else comes to mind.
