The Queen's Meme #30 - The FaceTwit Meme - Tweet This!

The Facebook Meme (aka The FaceTwit Meme)
It's a little longer than usual but I just couldn't stop in 140 words or less. Sorry.

1. Facebook has now surpassed Google in number of users and traffic.
How much time do you spend on Facebook? If not FB, do you use Twitter?

You should ask how many hours do I spend OFF Facebook! The answer is not a lot! I'm also a Twit as well.

2. What is Farmville? I do not understand why people are asking me for margarine.

This is a puzzler. Apparently people build up their farms. The good thing is that the government does not demand milk subsidies and things like that, and we do not have to do the icky things farmers do with hatchets.

3. Do you war in the Mafia Wars? I do not understand why people are asking me for cows.

This is my favourite FB application! I love playing Mafia Wars. Right now I'm about Level 136, and go by the name of Big Boy.

4. What is Cafe World? I do not understand why people are asking me for bullets!

I think people are getting their apps mixed up! Maybe they want the bullets as something in their dessert?

5. Are you being bombarded with these "See Who Has Been Looking At your Profile - See Who Your Peeps Are?" application request lately?
I don't understand why people are asking me for my photograph and that of my dogs.

Do I want to know who my Peeps are? I'd rather not know! What is a Peep? Answers please!

6. Which FB or Twitter applications, tags or gifts irritate you the most and why?

YoVille really annoys me! They give a few duff pieces of furniture etc, while all the good stuff they want you to pay for with real money. No way, Jose!

7. Every morning I am faced with the question at the top of my Facebook profile page, "What's On Your Mind?" Now Mr. Online Mailman wants to know the same thing. Does the whole world need to know what I'm thinking at every moment? I can't write that in a public place ya know. But if you had to answer that question honestly at 9:00 am each morning, what would you say?

Is FB a psychiatrist? With a question like that, should I be lying on a sofa and telling my life history? As long as FB don't start charging £100 an hour!

8. Do you know how you became friends and followers with everyone in your list on Facebook and Twitter?

One of the mysteries of life.

9. Have you ever been deceived online by someone you thought was someone else? How did you know?

Not yet, but how do I know who you are? You say you're Mimi, but this might well be Homer setting these questions.

10. Do you enjoy chatting via Yahoo Messenger or AOL the old-fashioned way? If so, who do you chat with most online?

No, I like to chat via e mail...more my speed!

11. Have you ever been contacted on Facebook or via email under false pretenses, for dubious purposes, or by meddling nosy people in general?

If I did, they would get dropped faster than a brick....or preferably WITH a brick!

12. Think about it. We are all flitting around making bird noises on the internet. What would the PETA people say?! Can you think of a more suitable animal mascot for Twitter? What kind of sound would we make?

A parrot or mynah bird seems ideal. It should squak "Here's another Twit!" when a request comes through.

13. What kind of new cool innovative application would you like to see on Facebook or Twitter? What would you call it?

Gullible App.....strictly for gullible people. They send me £50 and I tell them how to play the application.

14. Have you ever had to block someone from Facebook or Twitter?

I've blocked masses from Twitter. They are usually selling some product. They get shown the door pronto!

15. Do you allow your real life friends to communicate with you there or do you prefer to be incognito to the universe at large?

I've also got several at my office on Facebook, but they aren't involved with my blogging side.

16. Do you belong to any CAUSES on Facebook or Twitter? If so, what makes you passionate about them and why did you join?

I'm definately not the CAUSE type CAUSE I never get into them

17. Do you know what a Twibe is? An Arican group of people discovered by Elmer Fudd.

18. Have you ever rage twitted? Tell me!

I'm waiting to have a really good rant. You never know when it might be!

19. I find that more and more people are reading my blogs on Facebook and commenting there. Do you share your blog posts on Facebook? Do you find that it helps or hinders your blog traffic?

I ought to put my blogs on FB as well. The trouble is, I'm a major procrastinator.

20. Wanna be my friend on FB? I have nearly 800 now. At least I'd recognize you!

I'm already one of them, Mimi. You know who I am!

Don't you be foolin' me now. There's always the dreaded dungeon.
I wonder if there's an app for that. Hmmmm......

The Queen's Meme #29 - The Bucket List Meme

It's not original. It's not my idea. This meme has been around in various forms. Call it whatever you wish. But I thought it would be interesting to make a wish list of things you want to accomplish or do before you ....um....well....die. Cheery, no? Just like the two characters in the 2007 motion picture, The Bucket List, we all have a list in our heads. I'm not sure I've ever actually written mine down. Some I've already crossed off. I think it's time for a fresh new slate of ideas and direction for me. I've been through a lot of change in the last year. And even though the list might change periodically, nevertheless, the task gives me pause.
What AM I doing to push forward those dreams of mine? Maybe it will help if I write them down. And what hinders me from getting them done? That is the bigger question.

The rules: There are none. List as many things as you'd like. Give us your answers in pictures, words or song lyrics. Make it serious or funny. Your choice.
What's on your list?

You don't make these things easy, do you.Mimi? Right, now what should I put on this list???  I know I just don't want to be around when my number's up.

Well let's see what I want to accomplish.....

1  For my 18 year old girlfriend-to-be to say "You were great!"

2: To be able to travel first class everywhere and enjoy life, rather than working during it.

3:  To have a fleet of fast cars and Harley bikes ....yeah!!!

4: To meet some top entertainment stars,  Nicole Kidman especially!

WHAT I DON'T WANT: The doctor to say "You have two weeks to live, but we should have told you two weeks ago!"

The Queen's Meme #28 - The Never Should Meme

Welcome to the Queen's Tuesday Meme #28

The Never Should Meme
Brought to you from the sunny beaches of Somewhere whilst on vacation.

I actually believe that if "shoulds" and "nevers" were banned from the English language we'd all be better off. Who needs to live in absolutes? Should evokes unnecessary and unhealthy guilt.
Never is never enough no matter what you should be doing. Not ever! See? But in this fill-in-the-blank exercise you can be as dogmatic and brutal as you dare.
After today's meme, lose the words.
You should.
Oh, never mind.

1. If I never see my office again it will be too soon.

2. Should I meet my Maker tomorrow, I would ask for one more day on earth to have a recount of the days I was entitled to.

3. Never in my life have I seemed as old like I did today.

4. I should always allow more time to procrastinate

5. I should've never listened to the rv while under the influence of  people trying to win your voter

6. I never _sleep in my car but I should always carry a pillow with me just in case.

7. I should spend more money on bad things because it makes me happy. I should spend less money on food that is good fot you because it makes me sad.

8. Your wallet should never be shared with strangers.

9. I should tell the bank that I never really meant to blow up the safe.

10. Never in a million years would I want you to know about what happened the other day, when I  ________________.

P.S. I will writing my answers in the sand with my toes. This could take a while.

The Queen's Meme #27 - The Olympics Meme (aka Blogalympics)

Welcome to the Queen's Tuesday Meme #27

No one's answers are quite like yours.

Maestra Mimi has a quiz for you today. How much do you think you know about the Olympics? See if you can go for the gold and answer these questions correctly. IF you want to spoof it, by all means, spoof away! The answers are at the bottom of this post. NO CHEATING unless you want to end up in the you-know-where.

1. What year were the very very very first Olympics held? I don't know. It's all Greek to me!

2. The original games were banned for being a pagan festival because the Olympics celebrated the Greek God of........??

A. Mars
B. Venus
C. Zeus
D. Google

Isn't there a god of drug-taking? I guess it's Zeus

3. In 1896 the first modern-day Olympic Summer Games were held. Which country won the most medals that year? There wasn't many taking part. Greece?

4. Which country has won the most medals EVER at the Winter Games? The USSR? Matbe a country with a lot of snow and mountains?

5. I predict that Blogging will become the next Olympic event recognized by the International Olympic Committee as a valid sport. How would you train for this event? And if you think it should be a team event, who would you include on your team?  I'm in training right now, doing press ups and answering memes whenever I ca. Don't worry, Mimi, you're in the team!

6. What do the five Olympic rings represent? The skin colours around the world

7. No country in the Southern Hemisphere has ever hosted the Winter Games? Why? Maybe because Antarctica has never wanted to host it. The polar bear games!

8. What the heck is curling? Why should it be a sport?? Curling is a Scottish sport where a giant rock is slid along the ice. It's either that or an event in the hairdresser's Olympics.

9. Mark Spitz won 11 medals in the most combined overall medals category. What was his sport?
A. Skiing B. Swimming C. Looking good D. Resigning from public office after a sordid scandal Swimming in scandals

10. In ancient times females were forbidden to watch the games.
What was the penalty for doing so?  As the men didn't wear clothes when competing, I should think the women had to wear a blindfold.

11. In 1908 the organizers of the London Olympic Games added another 385 yards in order for the royal family to have a better view of the finish line.
Which sport was it?  The marathon...a problem for those exhausted with 300 yards to go.

12. What event would you like to see added to the Olympics? Why?  Women's beach volleyball....oh, it's already in!

Extra credit and a guarantee you won't end up with no medal or meal in the dungeon this week.
What was your favorite Olympic event or moment to witness this year at the 2010 Olympics?  Annoyed because the winter Olympics were in the middle of the night for us!

After you finish, click the dungeon pic. The trap door will take you to the correct answers.
