The Queen's Meme #95 - The Falling Into Fall Meme

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

Fall is my favorite time of year. I can think of many wonderful things that just happen to have happened to me in the fall. The birth of my son, the beginning of semesters, new fall clothes, Dona Nobis Pacem in the blogosphere began in the fall..... The season also brings memories of grief and transition. I lost my dad in the fall of 2009. When the air turns to crisp and cool, I think of those last days with him. What does fall remind you of?

1. What is your favorite fall memory?  I forgot!

2. Have you ever fallen in love in the fall?   A girl and I started goiung out in the fall...till we fell out of love!

3. Do you like the current Daylight Savings System when we all "fall back" the clock.  The clock should stay the same all year round!

4. Tell us a thing or two you've done by a crackling fire? **we won't tell**   Coughed with the smoke coming out!

5. Have you ever been apple picking?   In the supermarket?

6. Do you like to take a walk and play in the fall leaves?  I used to when I was young...come to thing of it I was younger ten mintes ago.

7. Do you and your family have a special fall tradition in your house?  Yes...sweeping up all the &^*% leaves!

Welcome to The Queen's Meme #93
7 Royal Questions on Tuesday

This week has been wide open. In case you haven't noticed, I tend to meme-blog about those things that are concerning me at the moment. Or making me laugh. Or driving me crazy.
I can't get my mind off a conversation I had with a new guy possible love match maybe kinda sorta we'll see acquaintance this week.
He's conservative. But edgy. Liberal with his opinions. But not haphazardly. Tall. A littttttle younger (I said a "little!") and downright challenging. But in a good way.

The Love Match Meme

1. Which is more important.... romantic chemistry or friendship? Friendship is just for friends. Having a good wife depends on both.

2. Would you date someone who is much taller or shorter than you? I'd bring a cardboard box along for me or her to use when kissing.
How about older or younger? Judging how old I am, an older one would have to have billions!

3. How soon should you bring up past relationships in a new relationship? Not while slipping the ring on her finger.

4. What is the one red flag you KNOW from past experience to pay attention to when getting to know a new person?  "Excuse me, I've got to get back to the sanatorium."

5. When dating someone, what would you consider the ultimate deal breaker? Footsie under the table?

6. Tell us about a date you had with someone that went all wrong. She turned up.

7. Imagine you have a teenage daughter. She just asked you to give your best dating and relationship advice. What will you say?  You're grounded until you are 25.

The Queen's Meme #93 - The Strange Stupid Meme

Welcome to The Queen's Meme #93
7 Royal Questions on Tuesday

Is it just me or is the world getting stranger by the minute? Every time I turn on the news there is some stupidity amongst humans and all living mammals, reptiles, and aliens to report. Do we walk among the insane or do they walk with us? Did you get that? Think about it.....
Answer these questions based on weirdness, unfairness and just plain stupid circumstances. Apparently, stupid is as stupid does. Or is it?

The Strange Stupid Meme

1. According to a news report, Medicare in the US stops plans to stop paying for preventable health problems or complications caused by hospital mistakes, including operations on the wrong person or wrong body part. These mistakes are called "never events." What would you call them?  Sever Events

2. It is the policy of some TV news broadcasters to show automobile wreckage photos as soon as they can possibly get to the scene of the accident. Sometimes the family has not been notified. They get away with it by "not releasing names." How do you feel about this? Whack the photographer over the head and not releasing the name of the person who did it.

3. Did you know that some car dealership service departments charge extra for "shop supplies"? This includes the ever expensive shop rag (retail 99 cents) which can be billed for 10x that much.

Have you ever been ripped off by a car mechanic?  Does the sun come up in the morning?

4. In some states, including California, Alaska, Florida and Hawaii, a motorist can be cited for driving too slowly. What would make you drive under the speed limit for a long period of time?  If there was a female pedestrian wearing a bikini or a very short skirt. 

5. In Arkansas the law states: No person shall drive a motor vehicle onto the premises of a drive-in restaurant and leave the premises without parking such motor vehicle, unless there is no unoccupied parking space available on the premises.
Explain this to me. Please.  Err...well....don't drive in a drive in and drive out.

6. But in Indiana, a horse cannot be ridden or driven on the street in excess of 10 miles per hour.
Do you drive a fast horse? If I prod him with a pointed stick.

7. And in the great city of Youngstown, Ohio, you must keep your rats under control.
Do you find this to be a problem in your life?  Only with the human ones.
