I have come to realize

Oops, a case of mistaken identity has landed me with a newly-found meme. Very simply, only two things need doing. One, jot down as many things as you can think of beginning, 'I have come to realize....' Two, finish with the standard tag-of-five. Here goes....

I have come to realize that I've been tagged by Yvy and am struggling (badly) with the nascent meme.
I have come to realize that a meme can be born in a most unlikely way, completely by accident.
I have come to realize that a meme is rather like a child and this one is mine for the time being.
I have come to realize that like a child conceived by accident, this meme is mine to carry even unto completion. Then to let go into the world when it is done.
I have come to realize that what I did to conceive the meme and what I do in nurturing it will influence what it eventually becomes.
I have come to realize that some of what I feel will influence it greatly will not and that some of what I feel inconsequential will be absolutely vital.
I have come to realize that some people would like to see what this meme is and what it will become.
I have come to realize that these people (some of whom are tagged and others who self-tag) will also influence the meme and how it grows up.
I have come to realize that there are some people who do not want to be involved in a meme's growth and that I may want to respect their privacy. I can't help but wonder if in doing so they deprive themselves of some of the richness of bloglife.
I have come to realize that a meme grows up to mirror its writer, often in ways that surprise and delight. Sometimes the resemblance is obvious to all except the writer. Sometimes everyone sees.
I have come to realize that when I write this meme, I want for it to become the best meme it can be.
I have come to realize that this can drive me beyond concern into sheer fussiness.
I have come to realize this is all about me, me, meme....
I have come to realize that when it comes to people, all of the above applies. Both for me and everyone else.

The tag of five: Having come up with the idea first, Yvy is safe. Instead, I tag:
1. The incomparable Kucing Gatal
2. eLBis.... who has left the building in search of ADSL
3. Tan Yee Wei, as a graduation present
4. Hedonistics Anonymous, for whom the blessing may prove helpful
5. S-Kay because she had to self-tag for being bored.... ;)

There is no curse for not doing the meme. Instead, a blessing for all those who do. 'May your memes grow with you and do you credit later in life.'
Oh what the hey, let's throw in a blessing for , 'Great, knee-trembling, window-rattling, furniture-breaking, neighbours-calling-police, earth-movingly good sex.'

OK people, let's go for it!

I realize I don't even realize what I've been tagged for. See? One of the side effects of being ADSL deprived! But I still like the anklehugz

LB: Very easy one! Just think up as many things as you can starting with 'I have come to realize....' That last little blessing is what's known in the selling business as the USP (unik selling poin), no? :D
Yvy: True, you're safe. But don't you want the little blessing at the end? ;)

LB: Oops, posted before I could finish.... Deep realizations ka?
Thanks wor. Can't wait to see how many more you come up with.
Where's everyone else's?
Remember, there's the USP blessing at the end: Fireworks for CNY! ;)

That is a whole lotta self-realization going on. I would have to take a nap after that much introspection. Good going there.

simple: 10Q much! I find a freshly-brewed Sumatra helps. Keeps me awake AND happy. Come to think of it, just about any well-brewed coffee will do for me. :)

HA: Read the blessing at the end! CNY is coming up, I hear.... *evilevilgrinz*
Yvy: OK, but does Ted know? ;)
LB: Thankyouthankyou! *happyanklehugz* Lasagna? Sounds very nice. I'll start with a double espresso, please. Late start to the morning, you understand....

Oh the blessing is enough to encouage anyone. Ever thought of selling charms with that stuff inscribed? Or scrolls with nifty little red ribbons that unfurn to reveal that text?

Im rambling.... will get to the meme a bit later; just came back from a little 'away'.

YeeWei: Welcome back! Thanks for the ideas too. All I need is someone kind enough to finance the whole thing.... ;)
