I've Been Meme'd!

According to the Urban Dictionary:

Meme (noun)
1 : an idea, belief or belief system, or pattern of behavior that spreads throughout a culture either vertically by cultural inheritance (as by parents to children) or horizontally by cultural acquisition (as by peers, information media, and entertainment media)

2 : the fundamental unit of information, analogous to the gene in emerging evolutionary theory of culture
3 : in blogspeak, an idea that is spread from blog to blog

I had no idea what a meme was until this morning when I found out that I had been meme'd by my fellow BloggerChick, Not Afraid to Use It. Woo hoo! This looks like fun, so enjoy the following:

1. Your rock star name: (first pet, current car) - OK, that would make me Pouncival Odyssey. Dear God, how dorky is that. What kind of music does Pouncival Odyssey play? Not rock. Probably some kind of weird hippy Dead-Head stuff. I prefer the name made up from my second pet and third car, Sulu Miata. Yeah, baby! Japanese rock 'n roll!

2. Your gangster name: (favorite ice cream, favorite cookie) - Rocky Road Chocolate Chip. Oh, please. If I was out in the 'hood, scamming protection money from local businesses, they would laugh at a gangster with a name like that. How about Chocolate Shortbread? Then, I could be a British gangsta!

3. Your fly guy/girl name: (first initial of first name, first 3 letters of last name) - H. Dob. Yo, bee-otch! It's H to the frazzizzle Dob in da houze! Woof!

4. Your detective name: (favorite color, favorite animal) - Purple Eel. Well, that's just stupid. Nobody's going to hire me with that P.I. name. Maybe Purple Stingray? Nah, that sucks, too.

5. Your soap opera name: (middle name, birth city) - Dawn Charleston. Hmmmm. Sounds dramatic. Very Blanche DuBois.

6. Your Star Wars name: (first 3 letters of last name, first 2 letters of first name) - DobHe. Please, Darth Vader is peeing himself right now he's laughing so hard and Mace Windu is shaking his head in disgust. I prefer the Star Wars name JJ gave me a few years back. Just call me Darth Chocolate, baby!

7. Superhero name: (2nd favorite color, favorite drink and add "the") - The Black Coffee. I shit you not. "Bringing caffeine to the tired masses, it's Black Coffee!" That would be such a cool costume.

8. Nascar name: (first names of your grandfathers) - Simeon Benjamin. Sadly, this would have actually been my name had I ended up with a Y chromosome. Scary!

9. Stripper name: (favorite perfume, favorite candy) - Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin Smarties. See, I don't have a fave perfume. Just a fave lotion from Bath & Body. Plus, Smarties rock! Regardless, this stripper name sucks. So, I will instead use the stripper name I thought up a few years ago while swilling beer on the beach. Vega. Very sci-fi, geeky, star-name, old car. I can dig it.

10. Witness Protection name: (mother's and father's middle names) - JoAnne Edward. Technically, my mom's middle name is Berkley, now that is. But we'll use her old maiden middle name. Sounds cooler. This is a name I could live with.

There we go! My first meme! This was fun. Shout out to Chocolate Malted Crunch Cowboy for meme-ing me in the first place!

So, now, I believe the point of this is to turn around and meme people in return. So, here goes. I'm going to meme Vonda over at The Livingston Family (love you, man and can't wait to see you guys tomorrow!), Beth who hangs at Reflections of a Mom's Life (Vonda's sis-in-law and sweet lady), and my buddy Fang who began his blog at JB's Rambling Witicisms and fizzled after three entries. Maybe this will inspire you, bud!

How can you even ask what Pouncival Odyssey would play? That would be the hammered dulcimer, of course!
