A couple of months ago, my friends were at my apartment to celebrate my friend Conrad’s birthday. As the night progressed, my friend Tap decided to make a meme of the things he heard me say or status updates I had posted that month. He compiled these into a meme and called them Lame Jenny, since I’m the least exciting and goody-two-shoes of the group. He used one of the most unflattering photos of me he could find, when I made the unfortunate decision of wearing a bunch of red lipstick. (It’s ok, I got him back by purposely placing his status updates out of context in a meme).
Tonight Tap made two more additions to the meme, and I thought they were both hilarious and spot-on. Somehow tonight I started ranting on how Katie Holmes supposedly cheated in the NYC Marathon a couple of years back (how could she NOT wear a bra while running a marathon? And then go out in heels that night? FAKE). Tap was not nearly as outraged as I was on the topic, and created the “Misplaced Social Action Jenny” meme:
The second meme stemmed from several online interactions I’ve had with the boys – I say something that I feel is harsh and then apologize several times, or misread what one of them say and get overly defensive. That’s where the “Clarifying Online Communication” meme came from:
