The Queen's Meme

Posted: Thursday, August 27, 2009 by Travis Cody in

Mimi, Queen of Memes, has styled a new game for her subjects. This week's is an old favorite of mine. And I'm sure to stay out of the skeery dungeon!

Here are my answers to Mimi's Meme #7.

Message in a Bottle

Today we're going to take a mini-vacation before summer gets away from us.

Somewhere in a faraway bloggiverse on an island with a palm tree swaying in the breeze, a message bottle sits side by side with a Pina Colada and a cute little striped umbrella horizontally tilted in the beachy sand. Did YOUR bottle make it to land? Have you checked lately?

There are now 285 bottles floating in the bloggy ocean just waiting to be mysteriously delivered to a tropical island near you. It's time you added yours!

Here are the rules:

You are about to send a virtual Message In a Bottle across the Blog Ocean. Leave a message in the sand or on the bottle. Write anything you wish. Be a pirate or a poet. Serious or silly. Rant or ruminate. Anonymous or not.

What message would you like to send out to the universe?

Your virtual bottle will remain afloat in the blogosphere ocean for all blogernity (That's a Mimism for blog + eternity.) Mimi will add it to the master list of message bottles when you let her know you've completed the meme. You can do that by clicking here and signing the linky.

Now Mimi wants us to tag folks, but I rarely tag. This is a fun meme, so please click over to Mimi's and get your own blank message bottle. Then put your message on it and fly it proudly.

Here are two that I've done in the past.

And here's my new one. I made it just for this meme today.

If you're new to the Peace Globe movement, please go here to view the Peace Globe Gallery and here to learn how to make your own Globe. You can also find more information here. Then join us on 5 November 2009 by flying your Globe under the post title Dona Nobis Pacem.

I believe that words have power, so this matters.

    You have some wonderful bottles floating in the blocean (blog + Ocean). My new bottle was a silly one, but I may need the Tardis to get off an island some day.

    Wonderfully done, Travis.
    I shall toss it in the bloggy ocean. It will make a glorious splash.

    Charles: That works.

    V: I guess she did at that.

    Akelamalu: I thought it appropriate.

    Jamie: I guess it depends on who and what is on the island with you.

    Dianne: Thanks!

    Mimi: This meme deserves to be trotted out every so often. I'm glad you did it again.

    Dana: It's the best way to be!

    Julie: I'm a meme mesher!
