The Last Time Meme

This meme will make no sense. Do not expect it to. It has no rhyme or reason. There is no serious theme or deep thought required. Just answer with the first thought that pops into your brain and go with it. After all, that's how I made up the questions. Stop rolling your eyes.

The Let’s Go To Dinner Meme

We all love to wine and dine with our families and those we care about. Some of us talk about it. Some of us don’t. Regardless, we all have stories to tell…. past and present. Take a trip down memory lane or unfold your fantasy night out on the blog for all to read. We’re all ears. Waiter! Waiter!

1. When is the last time you went out to dinner with someone special? Tell us about it. It's been a while ago. So far ago I think the main item on the menu was Stegosaurus.

2. Show us a picture of your favorite cuisine. It's lasagna...a picture of it is usually a lot better than how it is!

3. What is the funniest thing a man/woman has said to you lately? As regarding dinner? I can't think of anything, but I remember the joke about the waiter asking the man how he found his steak. He replied, "It was easy; it was hiding under the potatoes."

4. What makes a gentleman a gentleman in today’s dating world? Are there any left? There are many. The word meaning though has been changed. A 'gentleman's club' is a strip joint!

5. Is there anything you won’t tolerate when out to dinner with your significant other? Her falling asleep while I'm talking.

6. What type of ambiance do you enjoy in an eating establishment? Quiet, discreet, classy, upmarket. Going for a Chicken McNugget just isn't enough.

7. Tell us about the worst public dining experience you ever had, whether it be a date or with your family. I guess that is on a Russian riverboat, where ancient Soviet dishes were served along with rock hard porridge

8. What is the lamest or rudest thing a man/woman has said to you lately? It looks better on the box it came in.

9. Are you a good tipper?  Since I don't believe in tipping unless the service is exemplary, the waiters are going to have a disappointment.

10. Do you ask for doggie bags when you leave food on your plate at a restaurant? I don't have a doggie.

11. What is your pet peeve about restaurants and dining out in general? The way a waiter can look dismissively at customers, especially the Maitre' D.

12. Do you prefer to order yourself or do you ever let your significant other order for you? Only if she knows what I like.

13. Describe your most intimate romantic dinner ever. (fantasy or real) A fantasy one would involve soft music, candle in the middle, holding hands, kissing (making sure the candle doesn't burn me), whispering sweet nothings....time for the cold shower!

14. Do you enjoy piano bars? It depends who is playing.

15. If you could go anywhere in the world for dinner, where would it be and who would you be with? A beautiful Italian restaurant with a sweet signorina..

#36 The Weird, Unusual and Amusing Meme

The following statements are true. Your job is to explain why you think they are true. Just offer up your usual amusing quips! I'm betting we'll have some hysterical responses. Remember that somewhere somebody in the world needs to know these things and your tax dollars probably paid for the research that went into proving them true.

1. More people are killed by donkeys annually than are killed in plane crashes. What happens if you take your donkey on a plane ride. Naturally it's true. Have you ever been bitten in an aircraft? A stewardess in a bad mood might.

2. Donald Duck comics were banned in Finland because he doesn't wear pants. They are probably 'top shelf' magazines now. I wonder if the Finns put little pants on all ducks?

3. If you keep a Goldfish in the dark room, it will eventually turn white. This one sounds very spooky. Perhaps it's come back to haunt you?

4. The shortest war in history was between Zanzibar and England in 1896. Zanzibar surrendered after 38 minutes. Why were they fighting in the first place?  They were probably arguing about an offside goal in a soccer match.

5. Women blink nearly twice as much as men. We men keep our eyes closed most of the time.

6. The ant always falls over on its right side when intoxicated. The testing for this must have been fun! Do ants get booked for speeding? Do they sing bawdy songs and fall in the gutter?

7. An ostrich's eye is bigger than its brain. That is the same for a lot of people, as well. Maybe they are looking for the remainder of their brains in the sand?

8. In England, the Speaker of The House is not allowed to speak. That's not true, actually. The Speaker has to shout "Order, order!" to keep the squabbling ministers in order.

9. By raising your legs slowly and lying on your back, you cannot sink into quicksand. Unfortunately, there is no quicksand around to test this theory. I wonder how this was found out?

10. On average, 12 newborns will be given to the wrong parents daily. The same 12 newborns? They'll have to find the right ones eventually!

12. The electric chair was invented by a dentist. This is shocking. Iwonder if condemned men get a free dental examination before the switch is pulled?
