😏Meme: Chinese Horoscope
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: Well, I don't believe in any kind of horoscope, but they are good for a laugh.
😏Meme: I haven't sent this to you because they asked me to do so ...but just because it was interesting to note how accurate it was! I hope you have fun!
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: I'll find inaccuracies, you can count on it. But don't give me that about not forwarding because it told you to, you still did as it said...
😏Meme: Whatever you do, don't cheat!
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: Oh, like in the bogus personality test thingie that isn't from the Dalai Lama, right.
😏Meme: CHINESE HOROSCOPE:
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: Uh-huh...
😏Meme: THE YEAR OF THE IRON DRAGON, WISHING YOU PROSPERITY AND GOOD FORTUNE IN THE CHINESE NEW YEAR
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: Or it could be any year, though there has been a year of the dragon, I didn't know there was also one for an iron dragon.
😏Meme: Follow the instructions. It takes about 3 minutes - worth a try.
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: How about not...?
😏Meme: 1st. Get pen and paper.
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: No. I'm on the net and using a screenreader.
😏Meme: 2nd. When choosing names, make sure they are real people that you actually know.
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: Not that you would know the difference. I could even choose among some fictional characters and end up having a lot of fun that way. Or not choose any at all if I can manage that.
😏Meme: 3rd. Go with your first instinct. Very important for good results.
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: You'll be sorry! My first instinct with these forwards is to find ways to foil them.
😏Meme: 4th. Scroll down. Don't read ahead, otherwise you will ruin the fun.
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: I'll make my own fun, and anyway, if I'm going to smash this bit by bit, I'm not going to be dying of curiosity and resisting a temptation to scroll down to see what an end result could be.
😏Meme: 1. On a blank sheet of paper, write numbers 1 through 11 in a column on the left.
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: Not applicable due to severe visual impairment. But this chain doesn't take that into consideration.
😏Meme: 2. Beside the numbers 1 & 2, write down any 2 numbers you want – Do you have a favorite number??
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: It varies. No, still not using pen and paper for reason above.
😏Meme: 3. Beside the numbers 3 & 7, write down the names of two members of the opposite sex.
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: Do my brother and dad count?
😏Meme: 4. Write anyone's name (like friends or family) next to 4, 5, & 6.
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: Right, (Insert various characters' names here)
😏Meme: 5. Write down four song titles in 8, 9, 10, & 11
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: Like I'm going to bother with that... Just choose any random four that everybody knows, from Happy Birthday to Mary Had A Little Lamb and that should be good enough.
😏Meme: Are your done?
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: 'you' not 'your.'
😏Meme: Here is the key to the game.
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: I didn't realize it was locked.
😏Meme: 1. The number of people you must tell about this game is found in space 2.
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: Good thing I picked nothing, actually, regardless of what I might've picked, I still would send it to no one.
😏Meme: 2. The person in space 3 is the one you love.
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: Well, I love my family members...
😏Meme: 3. The person you like but your relationship cannot work is in space 7.
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: Actually no, there isn't a person like that in my life, and this doesn't apply to family members anyway. So, there you go, this fwd is ridonculous.
😏Meme: 4. You care most about the person you put in space 4.
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: I care a lot about a lot of people and it just can't be measured in most or least.
😏Meme: 5. The person you name in number 5 is the one who knows you very well.
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: If I did this with my fictional characters, I'd say yes, since they are in my head, they would know me very well since they came from me.
😏Meme: 6. The person you named in 6 is your lucky star.
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: Rotf I don't believe in that!
😏Meme: 7. The song in 8 is the song that matches the person in number 3.
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: Lol! Okay, so Happy Birthday matches one of my family members, my dad or bro?
😏Meme: 8. The title in 9 is the song for the person in 7.
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: So if my dad is Happy Birthday, my bro is Mary Had A Little Lamb? Hahahahahahahahaha! Since I am a musician, this is giving me quite a laugh!
😏Meme: 9. The 10th space is the song that tell you most about your mind.
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: Yankee Doodle? What does that tell me about my mind? Well - hahahaha! Not much in the way of lyrics, but the tune is upbeat and fun, like someone who smashes chain letters and loves to laugh, okay, I'll give you that much.
😏Meme: 10. And 11 is the song that tell you how you feel about life.
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: The "I Believe" Olympic song, okay, that fits. Though I could've put any song on any other day, I was listening to Lithium by Evanescence on my Ipod last night, and if I had done this thing then, I might've put that and had a completely different outlook on life, according to you.
😏Meme: 11. On number 1 is your lucky number.
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: Don't have one. Don't believe in that anyway.
😏Meme: And now the usual threat in all of these email forwards:
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: Which is why it needs to be smashed.
😏Meme: SEND THIS TO A MINIMUM OF 10 PEOPLE WITHIN AN HOUR OF READING THIS.
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: I thought you said that the number you're supposed to send it to was determined by something you specified earlier in this chain. Oh well, just another inconsistency to ridicule.
😏Meme: IF YOU DO, YOUR WISH WILL COME TRUE. The keyboard you kiss will become a prince(ss) or a slab of gold
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: Lol! I've never and don't plan to kiss my keyboard and look like a total doofus. Your silly little chain can't hokus pokus turn it into gold or a princess or anything else. And if you think I would believe your BS, you're sad.
😏Meme: IF YOU FAIL TO, IT WILL BECOME THE OPPOSITE – a dragon will jump out of the monitor spewing fire.
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: Yeah right, LOL! When's the last time some house fire was found to have been caused by a monitor dragon? (Not to be confused with the monitor lizard which, unlike this chain letter dragon is a real creature and does not spew fire.)
😏Meme: IT IS STRANGE HOW IT SEEMS TO WORK.
🧝♀️Ocean Elf: The only things that came close to fitting me were "Yankee Doodle" and "I Believe" and not, in this chain letter, BTW.
Over and out.
