Welcome to The Queen's Meme #76
7 Royal Questions on Tuesday

The Prissy Meme

Many things have been said about me. Some are true. Some are lies. Some are fair. Some are sinister. But there is one indisputable not-so-secret secret about Yours Truly. I love being a girl.
That is a fact.

I know what you're thinking, guys. You can't possibly do a prissy meme even on threat of dungeon duty. Not to fear. And quite frankly, unless you're a metrosexual and want to talk about yourself, you can still answer this meme about the females in your life. So let's powder up and get on with the makeover.
(**warning** I couldn't stop at 7 questions this week)

1. What is your favorite lipstick color and why?  I must admit that I haven't bought a lot of lipstick, although dark red on a woman looks great.

2. How long does it take you to get ready to go to work in the morning? If the alarm fails to go off...very quickly!

3. Do you have your nails professionally done? Mani? Pedi? Scissor.

4. Tell us about your latest spa experience - real or imagined. The beautiful blonde 20 year old was a gorgeous woman. I lay on the table as she put her fingers on my shoulders.....sadly this was imagined!

5. Is there something you'd like to change about your appearance? Would you ever have cosmetic surgery? I would be here all day typing that!

6. How do you take care of your skin? I keep it covering my body.

7. Tell us your secrets for vibrant, shiny, healthy-looking hair. It's a secret toi me as well.

8. What is your favorite fragrance? What's that?

9. Everyone has a certain color they love to wear. What is yours? Right now it's greying!

10. Do you have ink? How else does my pen work?

11. How would you describe your personal style? This is me like it or lump it!

#75 The Mimi Moon Meme

The SuperMoon graced the Universe Saturday evening! Since it was a much publicized worldwide event, I thought that we as global blogging citizens should share in the telling from our respective corners of the world. And if you didn't happen out this weekend to have some lunar fun, play along anyway. I'm sure I can think of SOMEthing to ask of relevance. And besides, the lunar phase has made me antsy to do a little dungeon throwing. I haven't in a long time.
Can you moon the walk or just talk the talk?

Do your best, my friends.
Do your best.
Your future depends on it.
There's a bad moon rising.

1. Did you take a picture of the moon SuperMoon Saturday evening?
If so, please post it. If not, steal one and post it. Do you think I'm a technological wizard?

2. Have you ever howled at the moon? Of course not. I'm a vampire, not a werewolf.

3. Do you believe that feelings and emotions are affected by the changes in lunar phases? (ie: children misbehave, lovers misbehave, tempers fly) No, tthey do them all year long.

4. In the language of astronomy, the two extremes of the moon are called ''apogee'' (far away) and ''perige" (nearby). Who or what would you like to be apogee and who/what perige?
(Crikey! I can now talk moon talk!) ex boss....perige...a certain lady who I fancy a lot.

5. Name a famous moon walker.  Sting & The Police (Walking On The Moon)

6. Scientists claim there is no relation whatsoever between a Supermoon and natural disasters. Yet we have experienced tsunamis and earthquakes in the last 7 days on Earth. Do you believe them?

7. Creedence Clearwater Revival sang about the evil of the moon.
Is there a Bad Moon Rising in your life?  Now you've got me humming it...I can't think straight...I'll be humming Proud Mary next.

Thje Queen's Meme #74 - The Disaster Meme

Welcome to The Queen's Meme #74
7 Royal Questions on Tuesday

Have you ever wondered how ready you would be if disaster struck your home or your town? Are you prepared for it? The horrific events in Japan this week and my own mini-disaster at home (of little consequence in comparison) caused me to start thinking about maintaining my Emergency Kit. I actually made one after 9-11 for Bloggingham and made kits for my parents and members of my family. Let's see how ready you are. Here's a link to The US Department of Homeland Security FEMA just in case you need it.

According to FEMA: A disaster supplies kit is a collection of basic items that members of a household may need in the event of a disaster.

1. How many days worth of food, water and supplies do you need in your Emergency Kit? As much as I can steal from next door

2. You should prepare supplies for home, work, a vehicle.
What item do you need in your car that is not needed at home? A map? A steering wheel? Tyres?

3. If you are evacuated from your workplace.
You grab your "grab and go" bag. What is in it? All the stuff that would help mme survive at the office.

4. How many gallons of water should each person in your household need for 3 days? If next door has a water butt, we should be all right.

5. Tell us your favorite non-perishable food items. Why? So you know where to get it?

6. How much cash are you going to hide in your emergency disaster kit? All of it!

7. Do you have a basic emergency plan developed for you and your family? Have you written it down, practiced and discussed it? Does everyone know where the emergency supplies are? We are only prepared for a zombie invasion

Welcome to The Queen's Meme #73
7 Royal Questions on Tuesday

We will attempt to "go green" here on the Queen's Meme blog today. Even I'm green. Even Mr. Linky is green! (don't tell him) I am woefully ashamed of my non-green status in this country and wish to do better. Recyling is not my forte unless we're talking fingernails. Let's find out how green we really are. I went to this website and was SHOCKED to learn that not only am I un-American and globally unwise in this regard, but I deserve to be smacked with a non-toxic noodle as well. I hate pain. I'd rather reform. Shall we?
The Green Meme
How green are you?
1. Do you recycle?   I don't have a bycycle
2. Have you ever hung clothes on a line instead of using the clothes dryer? And let the neighbours see my underwear and jim jams? Not likely!
3. Do you walk or bike to work to save energy? No, I like to use a gas guzzler. It saves MY energy!
4. Do you use a water filter for your tap water or do you buy bottled water? No, I just drink the tap water.
5. How many trees do you kill each year buying new books? I must be on my 28th forest this year!

6. Have you ever considered recycling your cellphone? Not while I'm talking bto someone.

7. All you need are a few simple non-toxic ingredients like baking soda, vinegar, lemon, and soap to clean your home. Are you willing to throw away the bottled chemicals?  No...I love chemicals! Do you want me to pour them into a clear lake?
