6 Pack Autobiography Meme

The premise: write your own 6 word autobiography

This idea was started at smithmag.net, continued in a book "Not Quite What I Was Planning" by Rachel Fershleiser and Larry Smith, and noticed by me in a Reader's Digest article called "Six Words That Say it All."

- Brought it to a boil, often. ~Mario Batail, chef
- Couldn't cope, so I wrote songs. ~Aimee Mann, singer/songwriter
- Maybe you had to be there. ~Roy Blount, Jr., humorist
- Struggled with how the mind works. ~Steven J. Pinker, psychologist
- Secret to life: Marry an Italian. ~Nora Ephron, writer/director
- Fifteen years since last professional haircut. ~Jane Goodal, anthropologist
- Well, I thought it was funny. ~Stephen Colbert, actor & host: Colbert Report
- Revenge is living well, without you. ~Joyce Carol Oates, author
- Yes, you can edit this biography. ~Jimmy Wales, founder of wikipedia


Now... it's our turn. I was mucking about with the idea and came up with a couple of fake ones as well as one for myself. I want you to join the fun. That means you Jacob, Sean the Blogonaut, Joe, Reed, Poodles, Atilla the Mom, XO, Richard, Protium, Johnny, T&A, OzAtheist, Harry Nads, Thump Thump Eyes, Tracey Treasure, and Half Rabbit. And anyone else reading my blog who isn't a regular commenter.

Sum up your life in 6 words. Ya never know, ya just might learn something about yourself.


6 Pack Autobiographies.... Fiery Style :)

- I came, I lied, I's crucified. ~Jesus, 1st century carpenter

- May the force be with you. ~George Lucas, creator of Star Wars

- Life and sex, journey not destination. ~Fiery, blogger and mother of 2

- I came, I saw, didn't logout. ~Half Rabbit, blogger

- Problems all the way, none today. ~Thump Thump Eyes, blogger and dear friend. :)

- What an adventure, only getting better. ~Joe, blogger

- Hiding in shadows, awaiting right time. ~Harry Nads, blogger and closet bound

Now, if you want to spread the joy on your own blog, copy paste the thing and let the good times roll! *snerk*

Thanks you guys!!!

Half Rabbit- I'd love to hear about your "didn't logout" adventures.

Thump- I'm rather fond of the Jeebus one myself, damn near wrenched me shoulder patting meself on the back for that one. *snerk* Glad to hear that today is clear sailing. :)

Joe- that is a fabulous autobiography. What a great stage of your life to be at. You rock! :)

Hiding in shadows, awaiting right time.

I hope your time in the shadows is shorter than you expect. Don't let it darken the light of reason that sparks so brilliantly within you.
