The Queen's Meme

Posted: Thursday, August 20, 2009 by Travis Cody in

Mimi, Queen of Memes, has styled a new game for her subjects. I fell behind with this meme and landed in the skeery dungeon. But I'm just about caught up now. Just gotta get #5 and #6 done, and then I can go before the warden and beg for my release.

Here are my answers to Mimi's Meme #5.

The Woodstock Meme - I Dig It

Forty years ago this week...from 15 August to 18 August...three days of peace, love and rock 'n roll (and mud) happened near Bethel, New York. It was the Summer of 1969.

Attire: Hippie jeans. Long hair. Legal or illegal smoke. Psychedelic vibe.

The scene: You are at Woodstock. You go alone but meet up with a beautiful man/woman. You spend three days together. Put yourself inside the peace & love vibe. You can choose to be stoned or straight. I put it in the story for the sake of reality. Just don't inhale in this meme.

This is the conversation you have upon meeting or you can make it into what you overhear others say.

It makes no sense and has no continuity by design.

You must fill in the familiar blanks to finish the story. Some are song lyrics. You may use more than one word to fill in the blanks.

Oh! I forgot to tell you (must be the smoke in here) You have a new name. It must a combination of the first letter of your first name, the third letter of your middle name and the last letter of your last name.

Peace out! Somebody might wanna turn on a fan in here.

1. "Hello, my groovy name is Tey. By the looks of those flowers in your hair, you must be Rose. Didn't they tell you? No thorns allowed!

2. Come on, Baby, light my citronella candle. When I lay me down to check under the bed I pray the Raid in my sprayer is enough to keep. If I don't clear the room of creepy crawlers well enough, then before I wake, I pray the vacuum is near enough for my unwelcome visitors to take.

**puff puff**

3. Because the first time ever I saw your sexy hips, I realized that what the world needs now is swivels sweet swivels. Besides, I always feel guilty watching you Samba walk when I should be practicing.

But I dig it!

4. Have I told you lately that I think my shirt looks great on you? Hey! Don't step on that kitty's tale!! Dude. That guy is really weird but.....

5. There's a party in my sleeping bag and half a million of my silly friends are coming over tonight and we're gonna play the Gary Coleman toss to get my baby off my mind. Darn the luck. It's raining cows and I doubt we'll be able to get the little man into a decent orbit. Luckily, Papa was a rolling itinerant leprechaun juggler and he taught me, and I'm on a first name basis with the cops.

**puff puff**

6. I'm really digging your red spiked heel you got on your right foot but that sneaker on the left foot has got to go. Those flowers in your hair are beginning to smell like TACOs and man I love TACOs. Have I told you lately that I wanna dance with you?
** puff puff**

7. I'm beginning to see leprechauns playing Twister in those trees over there. Do you see it? Out of all the millions of hippies here, you are the most serious.

But I dig it, man. **puff puff**

8. I'd use all my blood, sweat and apple cores just to get next to your fruit and cheese plate. Love is free but I'd really like to buy that guy's dinner cause I haven't eaten since we got here. It says "Make CAKE not donuts. " Far out!

9. I'm grateful to be in a foxhole now 'cause there's a bad batch of water balloons filled with something other than water rising in Jefferson's Airplane. But that's okay, 'cause Joe Cocker said I could get by with a little kevlar helmet I borrowed from my friends.

10. Oh, by the way, your flower is on fire.

But I dig it.

Hmmm let's hope that old battle axes hears the call over the network...pffft. Travis...excellent answers my friend. Red spiked heels and sneakers...clever. and Your citronella candle...ROFLMAO. :)

  1. Travis says:

    Jennifer: I'm sure you're groovy enough.

    V: Now I'm craving TACOs.

    Katherine: This was definitely a creative one.

    Akelamalu: I'll never tell.

    Thom: Hey! Nobody likes a tattle tale! Besides, the Queen knows all.

  1. How on Earth is someone supposed to even TRY when you have such a great response?

    Well done, Travis.

  1. 'When I lay me down to check under the bed I pray the Raid in my sprayer is enough to keep.' - *giggle* A funny meme, Travis. Every section had a laugh in it for me.
