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

Welcome to the Queen's Meme #62 ~
Sometimes silly. Sometimes serious.
It's called The Crazy Question Meme

I would be ever so appreciative if you could supply me with the answers to these questions. I've pondered them my whole life!! They represent some of the most important quandaries of the human condition! The burning and ridiculous questions are....

1. Why doesn't McDonald's sell hotdogs?     They wouldn't find enough dogs in the country

2. How far east can you go before heading west?   Infinity! You would ALWAYS be going in an easterly direction!

3. What happens to the missing socks? They are homeless and are left to walk the streets.

4. Does love = sex or does sex = love? Finding out is the fun part!

5. How much wood did the woodchuck chuck? Ask Chuck.

6. Why do prison buses have emergency exits? They are for the guards, not the prisoners.

7. Do you believe that an alien ship stole question #7?Absolutely. It is now being probed them them while being restrained on a table.

The Queen's Meme #61 - The Silly Serious Thanksgiving Meme

Welcome to The Queen's Meme #61 ~ The Silly Serious Thanksgiving Meme!

In Canada, it is celebrated on the second Monday in October. In the United States, the fourth Thursday in November. Thanksgiving is a time to give thanks for a bountiful harvest, loved ones near and far, the blessing of simply breathing everyday. Let's pause for a moment and think about what we're thankful for. My goal this year is to focus on the small things that I should be grateful for - even without a holiday looming. Having said that, this is serious and silly simultaneously!
Enjoy. Have seconds!

1. If you knew this would be the last Thanksgiving holiday with your family, what would you do differently? If I was the turkey, I would be digging an escape tunnel!

2. What is your favorite Thanksgiving dinner dish? As I'm British, we sadly don't celebrate Thanksgiving. I wish we did though. My favourite Thanksgiving dish would be the young lady I invited to dinner.

3. Why did John Smith fall in love with Pocahontas? Was it her beauty or her bravery? Don't ask me! Maybe he had a thing for warrior princesses?

4. Fill in the blank: Over the river and through the woods to Winnie The Pooh's blog we go.

5. What is a cornucopia?
A. A foot ailment B. Freud's hidden coping strategy C. a Enuch with a very large vocabulary D. third cousin of Onomatopoeia  It probably has a cornucopia of meanings

6. Find a word that rhymes with Thanksgiving Living.

7. Do you have any holiday traditions you'd like to share with us? As we don't celebrate it, I go through the tradition of going to the office.

Happy Thanksgiving!!

The Queen's Meme #60 - The 60 Meme

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

Welcome to the Queen's Meme #60!
Since we are having a meme birthday I thought I'd wax celebratory. Do you mind?
Let's walk in the footsteps of one Mark Twain, who said..."
"When I was younger, I could remember anything, whether it happened or not."

So imagine you're 60 even if you're not and answer the questions.
There will be cake.
I promise.

1. When I'm 60 I hope to know more about keeping a sharp memory and less about errr....I've forgotten.

2. At my 60th birthday party, I can only invite 3 people. They are The blonde female nurses who look after me.

3. "To me old age is always fifteen years older than I am" said Bernard Baruch.
What do you consider old age? Older than I am now.

4. Tom Stoppard was overheard saying, "Age is a high price to pay for maturity."
What does "maturity" mean to you at any age? The only maturity I'm interested in is when my investment matures.

5. Joan Rivers said "Looking fifty is great… if you're sixty."
Do you worry about age lines and wrinkles? Not if I take all mirrors away.
How do you plan to preserve your wonderful selves? I hear there's an Egyptian pyramid that run's some kind of good deal. They did tell me to bring lots of bandages though.

6. Comment on this quote by Euripides
"If we could be twice young and twice old we could correct all our mistakes." If I could figure the sense of that quote, I'd be old when I did.

7. Pablo Picasso said, "One starts to get young at the age of sixty and then it's too late."
What do you do now to stay young and enjoy your life? Get Dorian Gray's painter to do a portrait of me.

Welcome to the Queen's Meme #59
It's on fire!

And in the words of Steven Wright.. "I used to work in a fire hydrant factory. You couldn't park anywhere near the place."

I guess not! Answer these simply seething questions on the subject of fire.
It could be quite revealing. If it gets too hot far ya, just Stop Drop and Roll. We'll wait.

The Fire Meme

1. You are stranded on a desert island. There is only one match left in the matchbox.
What would you use it for?

Waiting for an aircraft to fly over, then I light the flare, which would probably hit the plane and make it crash into the sea...there would be a lot more onm the island then!

2. Do you burn bridges in relationships?

Only if she's on the bridge.

3. Name one thing you'd like to set on fire today.
