Screenshot Meme

My sweet friend Ariel tagged me for this meme. Very interesting meme. Very revealing too....
The cats in the picture are very good friends of the maid who used to live here in Tucson but then moved away, first to Florida, then to Vermont, and now they live in New Hampshire. And yes, the maid flew to all those places to visit them!

Here are the meme rules:

Upon receiving this tag, immediately perform a screen capture of your desktop.It is best that no icons be deleted before the screen capture so as to add to the element of fun. Here’s how you can do a screen capture:

1.Go to your desktop and press the Print Scrn key (located on the right side of the F12 key).

2.Open a graphics program (like Picture Manager, Paint, or Photoshop) and doing a Paste (CTRL + V). If you wish, you can “edit” the image before saving it.

3.Post the picture on your blog. You can also give a short explanation on the look of your desktop if you want. You can explain why you prefer such a look or why it is full of icons. Things like that.

4.Tag five of your friends and ask them to give you a Free View of their desktops as well. I tag:Starbuck, Jack, Bogdan, Yao-Lin, William, Chase

5.Add your name to the list of Free Viewers with a link pointing directly to your Desktop Free View post to promote it to succeeding participants.

Hey Carl, thanks for the tag! I'll probably only get to do it when MY blog gets back to ME. Which probably means Thursday, because it's the big baby Caroline's turn tomorrow. But thank you!

I think it's a funny one. I don't know that our screen is very interesting though...

Jack, Persephone, Tenzing and Lancelot said...

That's a cute picture of those friend kitties. My OTW takes pictures of Persephone doing that.

We got your tag and will do it soon. We promise not to change our desktop before then (my OTW changes it all the time)!

And no, my OTW has no Mao and Rocky's Vishus Deer Repellunt. But they are becoming skilled Vishus Deer Infil-traitors, so I think they were ok. Just a little shaken up, finding them so close to home!


PS. Thank you for coming by and leaving us a nice message when Whisper had to go to the Bridge.

Thanks for the tag. I think this meme is really interesting actually - like a snapshot into someone's life or something. My human biggified and she wants to ask something:

Does second life take up loads of memory?
Is it worth downloading, in your opinion?
Is it addictive and does it cost much?
Oh also, what is the arachnophilia thing, it looks like fun.

Stupid human. She needs to get her own friends.
