me me me me meme

All About Me

DPF has a cool meme. I've always wanted to play a meme-game but no one ever tags me. So, rather than being a passive bystander watching helplessly as life passes me by, I thought I'd take control, seize the day, and as the Nike ads implore, "just do it." As a tribute to my own self-absorption...

Sorry, JJ - I didn't mean you. I meant... ummm... er, this other "JJ" who just happens to have the EXACT same URL as you (how 'bout that? - what a coincidence!)
I can see why there was some confusion.

And I didn't mean 'funny' as in 'har har funny' - I meant it in a sombre, grave, serious way (with down-turned lips, a deep frown and a cold, menacing scowl).
