"The Moaning Meme"

The Freelance Cynic, left me a "tag" in the comments section of the previous post. This is such a neat idea, I HAD to play!

Moaning Meme ->

If you've ever listened to people talking on a bus you'll know that most of what they say is negative. They talk about things they hate, people that annoy them and boyfriends that let them down before they even think about mentioning the 'nice things.'All of us do it. We find it natural, when with a friend, to moan.

In fact a recent study has shown that the most effective form of human bonding is moaning and gossiping.Yet our blogs, the social tools of the 21st century, are populated by memes listing our 'favourites,' or our 'blessings,' or our 'funniest' moments. In our efforts to be readable we have denied others the one thing that makes us interesting - our whining, moaning, complaining selves.

And so I am pleased to present the first ever Moaning Meme! The meme that will teach us all a bit more about each other and ourselves.

It's time to spread some Personality...

The Moaning Meme

5 people who will be annoyed you tagged them. (Sorry, ladies!)

1. Wicked H
2. Joy
3. Frances
4. Karina
5. Lynda

(I tagged people who I thought would do the meme, but it is by no means limited to only them! Be part of something new - Spread some moans!)

4 things that should go into room 101 and be removed from the face of the earth.

1. Paris Hilton
2. Cancer
3. Menstrual Cramps
4. pedophiles

3 things people do that make you want to shake them violently.

1. Blow their nose at the table in a restaurant.
2. Wearing their shirts so short you can see their "muffin top".
3. Not saying "thank you" when it's OBVIOUS they should!

2 things you find yourself moaning about.

1. My painful menstrual cramps, as if there was something that could be done about them!
2. How restaurants never offer enough vegetarian dishes, as if there was something that could be done about it!

1 thing the above answers tell you about yourself.
1. I'm a whiny-baby boo.

*Link to the original meme at so people know what it's all about!

*Be as honest as possible, This is about letting people get to know the real you!

*Try not to insult anyone - unless they really deserve it or are very, very ugly! (PARIS HILTON fits both exceptions listed here. YES!)

*Post these rules at the end of every meme!

Finally remember, cynical is sexy. At least that's what I'm hoping...
