The Time Traveler Meme

Welcome back to Sunday Stealing. Sunday Stealing originated on WTIT: The Blog authored by Bud Weiser. Here we will steal all types of memes from every corner of the blogosphere. Our promise to you is that we will work hard to find the most interesting and intelligent memes. You may have heard of the expression, “honor amongst thieves”. In that age-old tradition, we also have our rules. First, we always credit the blog that we stole it from and we will “fess up” to the blog owner where we stole the meme. We also provide a link to the victim's post. (It's our way of saying "Thanks!") We do sometimes edit the original meme, usually to make it more relevant to our global players, to challenge our players, sometimes to select that meme's best questions, or simply to make it less repetitive from either this new meme or recently asked questions from a prior featured meme. Let's go!

Today we ripped this meme of a blogger known as Emily Barton, the Queen ‘o Memes at Telecommuter Talk. We were lucky to find this meme. Emily actually wrote it herself (when do we find that? We’d guess maybe once a year.) We have told Emily that we stole it but we’ve already been given permission. Emily wrote, “Are you reading this? Then the Queen has tagged you. Get on with it.” Thanks, Your Majesty! Link back to us at Sunday Stealing!

Cheers to all of us thieves!

Sunday Stealing: The Time Traveler Meme

Emily’s Rules:

1. Depending on your age, go back 10, 15, 20, or even more years.
2. Tell us how many years back you have traveled and why.
3. Pretend you have met yourself during that era, and tell us where you are.
4. You only have one "date" with this former self.
5. Answer these questions.

Okay, as we start, what year is it and how old are you?

1. Would your younger self (YYS, from here) recognize you when you first meet?

2. Would YYS be surprised to discover what you are doing job wise?

3. What piece of fashion advice would you give YYS?

4. What do you think YYS is most going to want to know?

5. How would you answer YYS's question?

6. What would probably be the best thing to tell YYS?

7. What is something that you probably wouldn't tell YYS?

8. What do you think will most surprise YYS about you?

9. What do you think will least surprise YYS?

10. At this point in your life, would YYS like to run into "you" from the future?

Thank you for playing this week on Sunday Stealing! Please leave a comment or link when you have posted. Feel free to stop back and visit other player’s posts. Have a great week. See you next Sunday!
