Dashboard Dash Yields Norwegian Blog

Either side of me, of all things, I found:
A Norwegian blog! No cheating, I swear.

In his latest post, Børge talks about a walk around downtown Oslo,
talking probably to the same beggar I discussed night-shelters with today. Getting colder here. And it's a small world.

Also a blog with press cuttings about Thailand, and either side of those, teen blogs. Cool for teens.
My first meme-- I found it via Børge.
Green Tea
Green Tea...
You are Green Tea!
Strong and very smart you prefer peace to violence
and very rarely take action if it involves
confrontation. But you make up for this with
your keen insight and understanding of the
world and people around you, you have a very
mysterious nature. Many people see you as laid
back and that may be true but you are very
intelligent and make good decisions.

What type of Tea are you? {-With Anime Pictures!-}

And if you thought THAT silly, go Disney!

I use it the way Børge uses it--in a way a meme in itself, but look here:
and in Pattern Recognition by W. Gibson.

"A meme (rhymes with "dream", but comes from memetic and memory) is a unit of information that replicates from brains or stores of information such as books to other brains or stores of information. In more specific terms, a meme is a self-propagating unit of cultural evolution, analogous to the gene (the unit of genetics). The term was coined in 1976 by Richard Dawkins in his controversial bestselling book The Selfish Gene. Memes can represent parts of ideas, languages, tunes, designs, skills, moral and aesthetic values and anything else that is commonly learned and passed on to others as a unit. The study of evolutionary models of information transfer is called memetics."

Here, taking a test to see what kinda tea, book, flower you are then posting it in your blog -- and NOW asking your readers to do the same and post it in this thread :)
Yes OK, I am seeking distraction tonight. Isn't it obvious...

Believe it or not, exact same as you. Must be our nordic common ancestor. Either that, or it's rigged, and everyone comes up green tea. But that's cynical of me, isn't it ;-)))
