OK, so the latest meme going around is go to Google and type in quotation marks your name and then “likes to” (e.g. “Tom likes to”). Type in the first ten things that come up and repost in your own note.  Here’s my list. Thanks, Siobahn!

1. But for some reason Travis likes to screw with it.

(This is a baseball story, innuendo be damned.)

2. “Travis likes to sew puppets…actually, he’s a major misfit,” Huser chuckled. “One of the things I focused on in the story is that Travis pursues his dream.”

But wait, there’s more about puppets later(see #4).

3. Travis likes to spend his summers helping his father with the family tow truck business.

And who wouldn’t?

4. To add to matters, Travis likes to sew and create puppets. This results in taunts and put-downs by Travis’ male classmates and by Mike.

Mike, you bastard.  I’m just pursuing my dream!

5. As Travis likes to say, “Wellness is an adventure not a medicine.”

Actually, wellness is a hole in the ground.

6. Travis likes to think he’s just passing through.

Actually, this is true.

7. travis likes to draw

Travis must also not like punctuation or captial letters.

8. Travis likes to say that, on his view, all representing is “situated”; and he explains this by saying that what a thought represents, hence the conditions under which it would be true, is jointly determined by meaning and circumstances.

I think Heidegger would disagree with me there.

9. More in line with a pro style Travis likes to pick his shots.

You can pick your friends, and you can pick your shots, but you can’t pick your friends nose or you’ll get shot.

10. When he’s not reporting, Travis likes to travel, listen to live music, run and read.

The picture on this one’s the best:

What does Google think you like to do?

“The sad truth is that most evil is done by people who never make up their minds to be good or evil.”

...who said it?

“Almost every American I know does trade large portions of his life for entertainment, hour by weeknight hour, binge by Saturday binge, Facebook check by Facebook check. I’m one of them. In the course of writing this I’ve watched all 13 episodes of House of Cards and who knows how many more West Wing episodes, and I’ve spent any number of blurred hours falling down internet rabbit holes. All instead of reading, or writing, or working, or spending real time with people I love.”

...who said it?

“Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

...who said it?

“I play with variables constantly.”

...who said it?

“Only the person who has learned Continual Love coming from a heart of Gratitude/Worship can effectively deal with the problem of loneliness.”

...who said it?
