Thief!!! Erm... oh. Waitaminute...

And I do believe that the question said "person" not cat. I know you cat ladies get them confused sometimes but... ;P

fermicat said...

Pets are people, too!

Beth said...

I am so stuck on the fact that you haven't seen "Napoleon Dynamite." Oh my gosh, that's the ultimate geek flick. I wish stars didn't get into and start wearing those t-shirts and stuff because I think more smart people would've watched it. lol My daughter made me watch it and it has some really funny moments. I wish you would see it.

Sunshine said...

Electron cones???
Wow, whatever your job is, it's smarter than anything I do!

Watch Napoleon. Just do it. It's great.

I loves me some vinagrette too.

Jeni said...

I've never heard of "Napoleon Dynamite" either but then, there's a whole hell of a lot of stuff I've never heard about too! Apparently no one knows what the meaning is of that one question on this meme (of sorts) the one about #8 and who's your #10, ya know.
Great introduction of yourself though - really got a kick out of reading it.

Dave said...

As to the subject that you didn't post about: While I will take money from a machine, I won't give money to a machine, be it an ATM or a self-checkout machine.

magnetbabe said...

Very fun meme. I might have to steal as well. I'm with you on the Chick-fil-A!

Jim Donahue said...

Wish there were Chik-Fil-As up North.

dr sardonicus said...

Napoleon Dynamite is proof of the decline and fall of Western civilization. So if that sort of thing interests you...

fermicat said...

Wow. This meme really got everyone coming out of the woodwork. Good job, LL and Sunshine!

beth, sunshine, and dr s - I do like low-brow humor, so I would probably like it if I saw it. Maybe someday...

jeni - glad you enjoyed it. I'd love to see this on your blog soon!

dave - I use plastic at the grocery store (for convenience only - I pay the balance in full each month - it just means I don't need to carry much cash).

magnetbabe and jim - Chick-fil-A rocks! Except you can't get any on Sunday, just like alcohol in Georgia. :-(

LL said...

Yeah... that's because it's kind of a fun one, not too deep, no thought required.

Minnesotablue said...

I must be missing something. I've never heard of Chick-fil-A

ctheokas said...

What are you gonna do today Fermi?

Whatever I want to! Gosh!

Go see ND, then you'll get that.

Kathleen said...

Nice one...I'm so stealing this.

And do yourself a favor and don't waste your time with Napoleon Dynamite. It sucked.

I would have appreciated the rant on self-check out.

fermicat said...

minnesotablue - Chick-fil-A is a chain, but has not yet spread nationally. If you get a chance to try it, their chicken sandwiches are second to none. So good!!!

kat, ctheokas, et al - opinions on ND seem to be divided. I guess I will have to see it some time and make up my own mind.
