Tagging and Chain Letters Must EndWe were tagged by Spork in the Drawer several days ago. The invitation came along with a plea that we not "hate" them for tagging us. While our first impulse when we see tags and chain letters is to mutter about nutcases and vow not to comply with them for spite, we were asked nicely and they did throw themselves on our omnipotent mercy.
Just remember, THIS IS AN EXCEPTION! So don't anyone else feel free to tag us because we're omnipotent, and dammit, we have other things to do.
That last bit isn't literally true, but let's just keep that between you and me.
Herewith, our seven:
Seven Things To Do Before I Die
- Come up with an air-tight plan to cheat death.
