homemade meme

this is stolen from babelbabe, who in turn got it from someone else who made it himself. that’s right, kids – witness the birth of a meme. the thing that is important to note is that this is NOT a list of favorites. i don’t know how other people have approached this, but for me, this is a list of items that shaped me into who i am, and a couple of them are not positive memories (though many of them are!)
