Dave!Ack! I've been tagged by Neil.

This one is about stress and anxiety, which doesn't happen to me very often. About the closest thing to stress that I've had recently was a strange disturbance in the force yesterday afternoon... as if thousands of people were crying out in suffering and pain... but then I realized it was just Dave Winer landing in Seattle for Gnomedex, two hours away from here.

List five things you enjoy, even when no one around you wants to go out and play. What lowers your stress/blood pressure/anxiety level? Make a list, post it to your journal, and then tag five friends and ask them to post it to theirs:

  • Take a ride my motorcycle. It doesn't matter where.
  • Watch a mindless movie on DVD that I've seen a dozen times before.
  • Leave the country for a week.
  • Play video games set on the "easy" level.
  • Write a rant on my blog.

Okay, I lied. Now I am stressing trying to think of five people to tag. Since this is kind of a list thing, my first instinct is to tag SJ at Chronic Listaholic (who would make it 10 things instead of 5)... but she is in the middle of starting the "100 Things About Me" meme, and so I don't want to interrupt.

How about I just grab some random recent commenters?

  • Ástríður at Venus Ice.
  • Michelle at Moonshine is Pretty.
  • Peggy at Totally Unauthorized.
  • Carl at On My Planet.
  • Delmer at What's a Delmer Look Like?.
Movie Quotable of the Day: "Say hello to the Scream Extractor!"
Day-Before-Yesterday's Answer: Fargo (1996) with Frances McDormand and William H. Macy.

  1. SJ says:

    Oh, Dave, tag me!!! My 100 things is gonna be intermittent. And I LOVE this one. Tag me. Please.

  2. Dave2 says:

    Oh… then consider yourself tagged!

  3. Kevin says:

    Damn, wish I could afford to offset my stress by leaving the country for a week. That would be so nice. Especially since my list of countries I’ve visited is limited to the U.S., Canada, Mexico, Belize, and the Cayman Islands. Sad, yes.

    I would say tag me, too. But I’m so new to the blog community that I still don’t know enough people to send it on to that have blogs. Unless you want it back, Dave. Four times. I do know someone to take it for the fifth.

    Who will be my friend?

    (ugh, I think I just creeped myself out)

  4. Kevin says:

    Oh, and the quote is from Monsters, Inc., isn’t it?

  5. Mark Gilbert says:

    Sheesh, what is the point of having counselling for over a year and being forced fluoxetine down my throat if i don’t even get tagged for an anxiety meme?

  6. Dave2 says:

    You could do what I do… tag yourself!

    Though if you have access to Prozac, then the list is a bit redundant is it not? If I were lucky enough to get my hands on Prozac, my list would be slightly different…

    1) Take a pill.

    And… uhhh… that would be it! No worries then! 🙂

  7. Dave2 says:

    Oh… I will definitely remember Kapgar for the next meme that I’m tagged with. I must warn you though… once you are tagged and actually respond, the memes will never stop. Never.

    Monster’s, Inc. is one of those cartoons I wish were real life. I could really use a Scream Extractor!

  8. Kevin says:

    Oh hell, what have I gotten myself into?

  9. Carl says:

    Haha, nice one. It’s a shame, I’m so new to the blogosphere that I will probably only be able to pass it on to my dear old mum, but I’m sure it will suffice.

  10. Michelle says:

    Yay I’ve been tagged! I’m so excited!!! … I actually really am! Thank ya!

  11. Ben says:

    Most times I play games on easy. I have enough challenges in my life.

    Maybe I’m just a baddddddd boy.

  12. michaelsean says:

    That is a weird error… I am trying to finger it out… probably some server change by my hosting company since I have not made any changes is awhile. Weird.

  13. Venus Ice says:

    AAARGH you evil mortal for tagging me like this! No I actually enjoyed this questionaire, made me appreciate life a little more 🙂
    Here is my list if anyone is interested:
