The Queen's Meme

Posted: Wednesday, August 05, 2009 by Travis Cody in

Mimi, Queen of Memes, has styled a new game for her subjects. This meme series is only a few weeks old and I've already fallen behind. I have no wish for My Queen to come and drag me off to the skeery dungeon... I present my answers to Mimi's Meme #2.

The Mission Impossible Meme

In honor of the 40th anniversary of the Moon Landing.

What? I said I was falling behind!

This meme is all about using your imagination. Free your inner blogginess. Step outside the proverbial blox (that's blog + box for all you non-blog speakers). Answer these ridiculous situational questions and post them on your own blog. Here's the situation for today. We won't tell a soul. And remember:

Don't end up in the dungeon.

1. You are a guest on the space shuttle. You just arrived on the moon and realize you forgot something back home that you can't live without. What is it and how do you convince them to go back and fetch it?

Well, that depends. When we got back to the earth, would they let me get the thing I forgot and still get back on the shuttle for the return shot to the moon? And would I have to pay for the extra trips? Something tells me they'd probably shove me out an airlock rather than go back home.

2. Pretend you are a teacher in a rough public school for one day. You have been assigned to teach Manners 101. You have the "challenging bad butt kids" class (remember this is a pretend school and anyway I can't say ass on my blog 'cause it's so unQueenly and I might get fined or something). They are jumping up and down, cursing, and throwing things at you. What is the first thing you would write on the board?

"If you want to be respected by others the great thing is to respect yourself. Only by that, only by self-respect will you compel others to respect you." Fyodor Dostoyevsky

3. Someone in your family or a friend has started a blog. They think it is anonymous but you have figured it out. They are saying derogatory things about you. Do you tell them or do you read it for awhile? How would you handle it?

I think I would read it and then tell the person I knew about it and had read some of it. And I would ask them if they really felt the things they had written. My next step depends on the answer to that question.

4. If you had one dollar left in your pocket, what would you spend it on?

Can I get CAKE for a buck? I know I can get a TACO for a buck, but I'd rather have CAKE.

5. President Obama and the First Lady are coming over for dinner. What do you serve?


6. You walk in on your lover. They are trying on your clothes. What do you do?

I make sure she tries the white button down, because she looks fantastic in my white button down shirt. Didn't I tell you? As wonderful as Cat Deeley's LEGSES are, my Lady's LEGSES are magnificent!

Oh! I also make sure she leaves a few buttons undone at the know...she's got the great cleavage too.

7. Every astronaut must have shots! Choose your vaccination: You only get one and you can't enjoy any of the attributes of the other choices. You choose either: (1) The fountain of eternal youth and sexual vigor but only for 10 years (2) perfect health for a lifetime (3) eternal mind-numbing nirvana and peace of mind (4) unlimited hedonism for one year with no negative consequences.

I'll take what's in syringe #2 please.

Now Mimi has set up a special Meme Blog. So if you want to participate, just do the meme on your blog and then go back to sign Mr Linky so folks can come visit your silliness.

    Ya suppose Mimi knows that I haven't participated yet?

    Egads! Of COURSE she does!

  1. You're much more pleasant with your answers than I would be. I might try this tomorrow.
    For the unruly class, I would write on the board, "I have a gun, and I know how to use it! And it's MR. Driller to you. Are there any questions?"

  1. Akelamalu says:
