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

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

Sometimes strange and silly questions run through my pencil brain. Don't try to look for connections. There are none. Just have fun answering a non-serious set of 7 royal questions. **We would really appreciate a photograph as evidence for question #6**

1. Who should run for United States President in 2012?  Anyone except the one in office.

2. Have you ever gone to a party and snooped in the medicine cabinet?  No....but it's a great idea. Thanks for suggesting it. If I'm caught, I'll blame you.

3. Why are Happy Meals happy?  The staff are happy because of the high cost of the low quality food.

4. Have you ever done the Hokey Pokey?  It's the Hokey Cokey where I am. I tend to be putting my left one in when I should be shaking it all about.

5. What song sticks in your head and drives you crazy? I hate the song Everybody Wants To Rule The World by Tears For Fears. I switch the radio off when it comes on.

6. Do you dance like crazy around the house when no one is looking? I might do a little air guitar if a catchy song comes on.

7. Have you ever been involved in a food fight?  Only with the Maitre D' when he wouldn't give us First Sitting on a cruise.

The Queen's Meme #90 - Mimi's Old Memes Meme

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

The first meme I ever did was The Book Meme in October 2006, tossed from the Philippines by a blogger named Lizza who turned out to be one of my best online girlfriends ever, even after all these blog years. She received it from a guy in England who talked about his underpants. Eventually I was crowned Mimi Queen of Memes by a man who wore underwear on his head.
But I digress.

The first meme I ever created was The Peace Meme. I asked people to tag 5 other people and we were on a roll. So to speak. Tagging is not so much an internet sport anymore but it sure was back in the baby days of blogging. Then I did the 9 Weird Things Meme in which I attempted to list 9 weird facts about myself. I thought it was scandalous but most people did not think I was weird enough. #1 was "I hate clocks." See? Not weird at all. Boy, have memes come a long way since!

**I know. You're wondering...will she ever get to the point?**
Well, the point is that since I've been revamping my blog, re-labeling, revising, editing photographs and sending some to the dump heap, I came across a gold mine of memes unheard of for years! Back then we listed things a lot. Tell me 3 Things You Did Today, 4 Things You Ate For Breakfast, 5 Things You Want To Say To Your Mother-In-Law etc. After a whole bunch of friendly tagging and whatnot in 2006, finally in January 2007 along came a question meme. I was tagged by Duchess Linda Upon The Thames (who wasn't a Duchess yet), Princess Sanni from Germany and Gemmolina who wrote a blog nobody could pronounce - all at the same time. So I named it "Triple Tagged and Slapped Silly." It was called the Silly Questions Meme.
I've taken one question from each of the first 7question memes I ever did and put them into this meme.

Mimi's Old Memes Meme
1. When you looked at yourself in the mirror today, what was the first thing you thought? (from The Silly Questions Meme)  Surely that's the wrong person?
2. Name something about humanity you absolutely hate. (from The Monday Melee Meme) That's too long a question. I'd be here all day and night.
3. What was the first lie your mother ever told you? (from Ten Lies My Mother Told Me meme) This won't hurt a bit.
4. Name one thing you should never say around a Ouija Board. (from The Ten Things You Should Never Say Around a Ouija Board meme - from Frank @ Honk'n'Hollr) Where did you bury the money you robbed from the bank?
5. What kind of soap is in your bathtub right now? (from the I Think I Caught Something Meme) Stuff that makes you cleaner. soap.
6. If a doctor told you today that you were pregnant, what would you say? (The Honesty Meme) Now THAT'S a newspaper headline!
7. Are you in a complicated love situation? (from The Don't Call Me, I'll Call You Meme) Only if not being in one is complicated.

The Queen's Meme #89 - The random Meme

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

The Random Meme is well...random. Haphazard. No synchronicity. No rhyme or reason. I'm allowed once in awhile to be random. So I looked deep into the recesses of a tired pencil brain today and wrote down the first thing that popped into my head. That's a dangerous proposition.
I hope you enjoy this totally random meme.

1. What is your favorite summertime flower?  I think it was 1976...and don't call me flower!

2. Are you behind on your blog?  No, but I will be if I keep answering these.

3. What has irritated you the most recently? Stupid questions. Last week, my dad had a new car. People were coming up and saying "Have you had a new car?". I would have loved to have replied, "No I hotwired it from the car park."

4. What was your last Facebook status post?  I need a new tooth implant.

5. When is the last time you laughed?  I'm trying to think which year that was....

6. What can absolutely ruin your day?  Getting up thinking it's a weekend, then suddenly remembering it's Monday.

7. What is the one thing that always brightens your day? Thinking it's a weekday, then remembering it's a weekend!

The Queen's Meme #88 - The Phobia Meme

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

Welcome to the Queen's Meme. I am happy to be back amongst the memesters! I've made up a brand new meme for your memeing entertainment. Let's talk about fears today. A phobia is an irrational fear of something and is classified as an anxiety disorder. Do you know that millions of people are deathly afraid of bugs? That's called entomophobia: a fear of insects. It's a virtual epidemic! I personally have 3 phobias at the moment that I can think of. Motophobia (I'm working on that one), murophobia (fear of rodents) and forgetfulphobia (fear of...of....sorry, I forgot)
I trust you to be honest and not look in the dictionary for the correct answers until after you've completed your assignment meme. Do I have your word of honor? (The correct answers will magically appear on my blog tomorrow)

The Phobia Meme

Why did I stop at 12? Because I'm afraid of the number 13.
That's triskaidekaphobia for all you non-phobia speakers.

Identify these six common (and uncommon) phobias. You can answer rightly if you know the correct answer or spoof them all! Define the following phobias.

1. What is mysophia? Some are going to be blind guesses, some educated guesses. This one....fear of being single.

2. Ailurophobia.....fear of getting injured?

3. Technophobia....easy, this one...fear of technology, like computers.

4. Novercaphobia.....possibly injections

5. Dipsophobia.....making the wrong dip in a dance?

6. Gymnophobia...possibly gymnastics or then again horses (as in gymknana)

7. Hippophobia...surely not hippos?

8. Hippopotomonstrosesquipedaliophobia....it ought to be fear of long words!

9. Lachanophobia....fear of lacking to understand

10. Uranophobia.....I dread to think...surely not what I think it is?

11. Levophobia.....fear of levitation!

12. Make up your own phobia word and explain what you are afraid of.

      Memeophobia....coming across a series of questions on a website and having to answer them!
