Still more lazy thoughts from this one…

Book in Life as Meme – 2011 Edition

My good friend over at Pop Culture Nerd is at it again!

My Life as a Book 2011

This book title meme just won’t die — just like Charlie Hardie in the above novel or Joe Pike in the one below. And I always fall for it. She got me to engage in this on my old blog last year. And for those who wish to take part, all you have to do is finish the sentences PCN has come up with for this year’s edition using the title of books you’ve read this year. Her answers are always more clever than mine, too. Damn her! So, I might as well give in to it:

  1. One time at band/summer camp, I: suffered a Free Fall (Robert Crais)
  2. Weekends at my house are: L.A. Requiem (Robert Crais)
  3. My neighbor is: Not Bad for a Human (Lance Henriksen and Joseph Maddrey)
  4. My boss is: The Dramatist (Ken Bruen)
  5. My ex was: Known to Evil (Walter Mosley)
  6. My superhero secret identity is: The Last Detective (Robert Crais)
  7. You wouldn’t like me when I’m angry because: Hell is Empty (Craig Johnson)
  8. I’d win a gold medal inThe Drunkard’s Walk (Leonard Mlodinow)
  9. I’d pay good money forJack’s Return Home (Ted Lewis)
  10. If I were president, I would: have plenty of Fun and Games (Duane Swierczynski)
  11. When I don’t have good books, I: know This Book is Overdue! (Marilyn Johnson)
  12. Loud talkers at the movies should be: given an Expiration Date (Duane Swierczynski)
Want to give this a try?

    What an interesting meme! I don’t know if I can participate but it’s certainly fun to read your post, Michael. I love your 12th one, oh so true!!


  2. Pop Culture Nerd

    Mine aren’t better; yours are hilarious! I was laughing out loud at your boss being melodramatic, your ex being friends with the devil, and your getting the gold medal in the drunkard’s walk. That takes mad skills.

    Thanks for playing!

    Oh, these are great! I love ’em! I think my favourite is your gold medal one. Very creative and clever. 🙂

    I love it! I would like to point out that it’s actually been two years ago that PCN hooked you – and me – on this! A few weeks ago I was even pestering her to make sure I hadn’t missed it. This is my favorite thing of the whole year! Fun stuff, Michael. 🙂

      You’re right on that, Jen. Time really does fly, sometimes. Especially, when you have good and creative friends like you and Elyse. Thanks so much.

    Oh, good times! As soon as I get myself organized again (and, um, erm, another post written) I will play, too.

    Ok, best go do some writing… 😉
