Thursday Thirteen

The Official TT Retirement Edition.

Thirteen Options to try now that the official TT Meme is going away (not that I was ever "official" that often anyways.....)

1. Tuesday's Tales - A handful of questions each week on different topics....
2. Saturday Six - six questions on a specific topic
3. Sunday Seven - from the same blog as Saturday Six only it appears to be seven answers to one question
4. Wednesday Mind Hump - the blog host is Blogdrive Insanity....three guesses as to why this appeals to me and the first two don't count. LOL! Appears to be 3-4 questions on a specific topic.
5. Randomness - again, should be no doubt there about the appeal.
6. Booking Through Thursday - a weekly question on reading habits, tastes, etc. Looks interestinig to a bookworm like me.
7. Friday's Feast - a buffet for your brain....five topics of discussion: an appetizer, soup, salad, main course, and dessert.
8. Unconscious Mutterings - yeah...sounds like my kinda thing alright!

And a couple that are NOT an option for me....
9. TMI Tuesday - these questions are a little too personal for my taste
10. W& E& T Wednesday - YUCK. Nuff said.

Other options:
11. Make up one of my Freaky Friday....a random "out of the blue" question each week. Rules: take question, find someone you don't know (and not one that is a dirty old --or young-- man) and ask them said random question and blog the results. HEHEHE.
12. Continue doing Thursday Thirteen (un-officially....since that's mostly what I've been doing anyways)
13. Skip it altogether... In researching "memes" I found a few statements on the "safety" issue of blogging personal information like is on some of these "personal question" memes. It's really pathetic that a few predators/idiots ruin everything for the innocent rest of us. *sigh* Yeah. I think its a good thing that I'm fixing the security breaks on my lovely little blog. *sigh* It's too bad it's gotta be that way.


  1. Good list of alternatives. There is also a new one called blog fodder.
    Thursday Thirteen has come to an end.
    I have enjoyed my visits here and consider us friends.
    Thank you for sharing your thirteens with me.
    The comments you left me filled me with glee.
    It is hard to believe it is really true.
    I am trying very hard to not be blue.
    Happy TT'ing!

  3. That's one of the reasons I don't reveal much information about myself - and half of it is fuzzed, jumbled, or fabricated. It isn't just the stalkers and sickos. People who could be in a position to hire me - people who could be in a position to give me a loan - people who could be in a position to decide whether or not I get an apartment, a car loan, financing...anything, really. All it takes is one person who doesn't agree with everything I say, and who takes it upon themselves to become a "filter" as to who does or does not get their services / products / contracts.

    It's easy enough for the government to track our movements and build profiles of its citizens from what they find online. Why make things any easier for the ad companies or salespeople?

  4. Thank you for posting these. I participate in Unconscious Mutterings. Like that it's short and sweet. Although TT has been my favourite so far. I think it will reappear in a slightly different format in the not too distant future. I'm all about books this week.


Please tell me what you think...but keep it spam free and friendly, or it will be deleted. Thanks! =)
