The Queen's Meme #14 - Do You Believe In Magic?

Mimi of The Queen's Meme has sent this in....

Welcome to The Queen's Meme #14
Sometimes silly. Sometimes serious.
Always fun!
Step out of the box. Be creative.
Use your imagination.
No one's answers are quite like yours.

This meme is called
Do you believe in magic?

It's all about those things we can't explain, things that go bump in the night, and other freaktacular occurrences. In this crazy world of ours, what's normal anyway??! We'll even talk about sparks of a pleasurable kind....if you dare. And since I'm in a daring mood, let's get started. Good luck. And please, try to stay out of the dungeon this week.
It's getting cold down there this time of year.

1. Tell us about your superstitions. Do you have any? Do you "x out" black cats on the windshield of your car, avoid cracks in the sidewalk or practice other rituals that make you feel safer?
Don't have any? Come on now! Make up some....

I never look at future days on my daily calendar
I never drink a cup of tea or coffee right to the bottom (result of bad childhood experience)
I never lie down on a railway track

2. Has anything paranormal ever happened to you that you can write about?

The only time I went over to 'the other side' was when I changed channels on the television.

3. Have you ever had a near-death experience?
Care to share?
When my boss nearly caught me on the internet

4. Pheromones...aka "love fireworks" (I think I remember those)...are a force to be reckoned with. Do you believe that two people can have an uncontrollable chemical reaction to each other? How do you know this to be true?

A man and woman are the fireworks, phremones are the match. Right now I seem to be out of matches.

5. Do you believe that modern day witches can put spells on people?
If so, who would you like to hoodoo and why?

The taxman.....do you REALLY need to ask why?

6. ESP! What do those letters stand for in your life?   I wish it was Extra Sexy Person, but it seems to be Extremely Sane Person

7. Do you ever hear strange noises in your house?
If so, what do they sound like?  It's the bogeyman trying to get in

8. Tell us about a time you "knew" something was going to happened before it did. Are you one of those intuitive types or do you know someone who is ? Do tell.

The only time I knew something was going to happen before it did was when watching a movie for the second time.

9. I'm a tad gifted in the dream department. Really. Sometimes my dreams are prophetic and come true. It can be a blessing and a curse. Has this ever happened to you? If not, would you like to have this gift? (Be careful what you wish for. It can be freaky at times.)

One superstition I DO have is never wanting to know what the future holds. It would be a curse to me... This is all very 'Flah Forward'

I agree... knowing the future would be waaaay too Flash Forward for me too!

Great answers :)

As you will see, not laying down on railroad tracks is one of the world's better ideas. Great answers. It is a good idea not to keep betting on the loser in horserace movies.

Xmichra said...

lol... watching the movie twice does have its perks ;)

Nessa said...

LOL, loved your answers. Especially the one about near death experience. I'm soooooooo glad I work at home! In fact i'm in a meeting right now where i am supposed to be paying attention and learning something and I'm blogging. I bet there'll be a pop quiz tomorrow lol. Just my luck

mielikki said...

I never lay down on railroad tracks, either...
think we got out of the dungeon this week? :)

Finding Pam said...

Jean-Luc...very funny answers!

I am sorry that you are out of matches to light your fire!LOL!

You can always count on the taxman, isn't he also the bogeyman?

Are you sure you want to be so sane? I liked all of your answers.

Mouse said...

LOL great answers Jean-Luc. Taxman yeah, also the traffic warden! Have a great week :)

Jean-Luc Picard said...

Pam, you're right...I have to be crazy to do this...it does help! The taxman and bogeyman might well be the same!

Mielikki, I think we're on parole.

Mimi Lenox said...

I heard that Mielikki!
I'm still pondering this freedom nonsense of yours..

Mimi Lenox said...

I like your new meme page, Jean-Luc. Everybody needs one of those.
You brought your A Game today.
There isn't a bad answer in the bunch.

Still pondering, however, your pending release. I may need you to help me handle Homer!

I can see where not lying on the tracks would be a healthy superstition...
