Teach has hooked me up with the If I were a... meme that he picked up from Ogre who got it from..HEY! he started it! We actually know the source of a meme! YAY!

If I could be a linguist...I would learn all of the biblical languages like Hebrew, Assyrian and Greek so I could understand the word of God in its original form. I would scour the ancient texts and be locked away for many years in places like The Vatican and Mecca (Yes, ALL the historical texts.). After many years of study at the cost of friends, family and health I would emerge from my crypt of texts to bring peace to the warring religions. Things would begin to come together. I would speak at a huge congregation of the top Cardinals, Imams and Manhigut (Jewish leaders) and would be on the brink of creating an alliance for peace and prosperity. As with any great leader that can bring about change for good I would end up getting shot and killed by someone who didn't want to change. (We are doomed to repeat history, aren't we?)

If I could be a lawyer...I would want to be an activist judge. I wouldn't be in the side that the news is pushing these days. Nope, not me. I'd give back the Ten Commandments. Religion (as a whole, not just one) would be a required school in class so we can really learn about our brothers and sisters in different faiths instead of fight with them. Pedophelia would be reclassified as a murder of childhood and life sentences would be allowed. And last but not least, Micro$oft would be declared a monopoly, their code would be opened up to public dissemination, and each of their tools would be broken up into different companies.

If I could be a librarian... I would read all about...HELL no! I would do librarians! C'mon, librarians are H.O.T. HOT!

If I could be an architect...I would design homes. I wouldn't just stop with one or two basic cookie cutter ideas for suburban cookie cutter homes. I'd design homes for the masses. I'd make like 100 completely different basic model styles instead of the three or four you seem to get these days. By flooding the market with fresh ideas other designers would be forced to follow suit. Eventually even townhomes would be uniquely individual on both the inside and outside. Every home design would be unique to that individual home. Finally you could tell which home was yours by style instead of color or mailbox. You would have something besides a generic box.

If I could be a writer...I would be doing exactly what I'm doing right now. That's what a blogger is; a writer. We're all writers. Some of us write books, others are journalists, some are activists or politicians or mothers, fathers or a combination of all or none of these. Above all, we're all writers here. We're putting our thoughts on digital paper and being seen by people we've never met. Our views and ideas are influencing those around us, everyone who reads us. We all have our own little newspaper that we're peddling to anyone who will listen. We are being heard. I AM a writer.

So here's how it works. Immediately following there is a list of 18 19 20 different occupations. You must select at least 5 of them (feel free to select more). You may add more if you like to your list before you pass it on (after you select 5 of the items as it was passed to you). Each one begins with "If I could be..." Of the 5 you selected, you are to finish each phrase with what you would do as a member of that profession.

Once you're done you point this meme at three (three) people you think will be cool with putting in a good two cents on it. Remember your trackbacks and links. Don't forget to add a profession to the end of the list with a link to your meme!

If I could be a scientist...
If I could be a farmer...
If I could be a musician...
If I could be a doctor...
If I could be a painter...
If I could be a gardener...
If I could be a missionary...
If I could be a chef...
If I could be an architect...
If I could be a linguist...
If I could be a psychologist...
If I could be a librarian...
If I could be an athlete...
If I could be a lawyer...
If I could be an innkeeper...
If I could be a professor...
If I could be a writer...
If I could be a llama-rider... (by Ogre)
If I could be a bonnie pirate... (By Teach)
If I could be a servicemember... (By Jeremy)

Okay, now comes the three unsuspecting victims: Sonstress7 because she seems to run out of things to write about. Billy Budd because I forgot to pick him up on the last meme. Jin because I think she's a cool blogger and this is my way of trying to showcase her.

If you were an architect, you would starve to death.

Posted by: Doug at April 19, 2005 05:54 PM

what, only one post?

Good answers, Jeremy. Though, I expected they would be. We have very high expectations for you when you write.

Posted by: William Teach at April 19, 2005 05:55 PM

Sheesh, no pressue, heh.

Thanks for the compliment.

...and yes, I probably would starve if I were an architect...I might even get shot by the same guy who'd shoot me for the religion thing.

Ok I accept the challenge! Give me a little time to shake off tuesday and I'll get on it.

did you have an invisible "f" with me button on today like I did, Billy?

Posted by: William Teach at April 19, 2005 09:54 PM

It sure seems like it. it was that hallway in the dream that you can't get to the end of.

My Post is up!

I liked the "linguist" answer. Too bad you utterly destroyed it with your "lawyer" answer; "I'd give back the Ten Commandments"

thanks for thinking about me!! You had some great answers!
