"Ex-in-the-city" wrote this recently: "This is one of those question things like they do on Facebook. I'm supposed to answer them and then tag more people who will do the same etc. I like the title of this one--La Meme is French and translates to "the same."

I am a sucker for assignments, I think they are fun (usually)
