Unfortunately Amanda

I found a funny meme - you google your name after the word "unfortunately" and see what comes up. Here's (some of) what I found:

Unfortunately, Amanda is not Elizabeth and it all goes horribly wrong.

Unfortunately, Amanda's wild ways are just too much for the Headmistress

Unfortunately Amanda's life isn't as glamorous as it used to be.

Unfortunately, Amanda walks in during this tender moment and comes to the wrong conclusion.

Unfortunately, Amanda catches them and storms out. (It seems Amanda is a common name in soap-opera type plots)

Unfortunately, Amanda's brain doesn't always behave like she would want to behave (I second that!)

Unfortunately Amanda's book is not available in France yet

I am embarrassed to have to ask this, being that I'm getting my master's in English and all, but what is a meme?

Cut and pasted directly from ChrisG.com article, "What is a Blog Meme"?:

"In science, a Meme (pronounced to rhyme with “theme”) is a self-propagating unit of thought that is spread from one host to another. Richard Dawkins invented the term as a kind of idea-gene. Like genes, as Memes spread they mutate or die. Only the fittest Memes survive.

For bloggers Memes have become synonymous with internet quizzes, surveys, and novelties that people link to and pass around on their blogs, forums and via email, things like the “which superhero are you most like” test"

But Amanda is also fortunate:

Fortunately, Amanda's husband is a private eye.

Fortunately, Amanda learns quickly.

Fortunately, "Amanda's patient family encouraged her blossoming talent."

Fortunately, "Amanda has the looks and the attitude to carry off many different ideas."

Fortunately, Amanda's stalker made a mistake. ...

Fortunately, "Amanda was brought up with her parents acting as her number one fans".

Fortunately, "Amanda made a promise to herself that she was not going to settle and accept second best."

So, you see....Amanda is very fortunate!

LOL Diane, those are some good ones.

But I'm going to have to have words with Brandon, he's been holding out on me. :)
