The Queen's Meme #72 - Return To Sender Meme

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

Welcome to The Queen's Meme #72
I've been on a short hiatus due to illness but glad to be back! Now that I've returned, let's talk about returns. Why not? I'll bet you have a lot to say about that. I know I do!

1. When is the last time you returned a library book? I think the library have got the bloodhounds and search parties out now. Truthfully, I'm a good returner.

2. Is there anyone you'd like to see return to your life? My late mother, a former girlfriend. Sigh.

3. Have you finished your income tax return? Oh, I never do those. Am I supposed to?

4. Do you ever return things to the store for refund, credit or exchange? Have you had a bad experience with customer service over this issue? Tell us your story. Some stores are all smiles when they sell you something, but return with a problem, and it's like you have leprosy. PC World were a lot of trouble some years ago when we had a dispute with a salesman who claimed something but it wasn't true.

5. You would like to see your favorite movie named The Return of My Movie Ticket... most great movies cannot do a sequel, with the exception of The Godfather and Terminator

6 Is there something you're still waiting to be returned to you? A good job. I must have given it to someone!

7. You are in a canyon. On the other side stands your beloved. You stand and shout something to him/her making a large echo. What do you want to hear in return? I'd probably hear "How did you get yourself stuck in that canyon!"

8. If you could turn back and go in the reverse direction in your life, making things better for yourself and those you love, how would your journey begin? That's too big a question, as how can I reverse something that has already happened going backwards? It's hardly The Butterfly Effect.

The Queen's Meme #71 - The SuperBowl Meme

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

*I had this scheduled to post early this morning and Blogger once again reverted it to draft. Sorry. I wish they would fix that bug.**
Welcome to the Queen's Meme #71
It's a meme about sports!

(**1919 Green Bay Packers**)
Now that the Superbowl is over, I thought it would be fun to take a little football quiz. I already declare failure but that is beside the point. There are many things about football that endear me to the game. Men in tight pants come to mind, ballet moves, food and music. What could be better?

1. In football, the "ball" is not round. Does this concern you? It's a consideration that I ponder night and day...are you kidding?

2.Can you decipher just one of the sideline hand signals?  The players probably can't

3. What did you think of the halftime show?  I thought it was the reason people go? The football bit is just an extra bit no can understands.

4. I do not understand why it is so important to knock people down if the object of the game is to get back up and run with the ball. Wouldn't it be simpler to just toss it back and forth and see who could catch it first? I think the game was invented by school bullies.

5. What is a down? Ask a swan.

6. Besides the obvious testosterone flying around (ladies) and the cheerleaders in short skirts (gentlemen) what else about the game of football fascinates you? Errr....nothing.

7. If you could add a rule to the game, what would it be? No body armour, like our British rugby players. Also cheerleaders run on to the pitch when a side scores!

Welcome to The Queen's Meme #70
The AfterLife Meme
Put on your pondering hat today. Let's get serious, silly and philosophical all in the same meme.

1. Have you ever seen an angel? If not, do you believe in them? Well I did see someone with wings...he was collecting for a Christmas charity!

2. Tell us a real ghost story. Ever seen one? It was a dark and stormy night.....

3. Have you ever had a near-death experience? Yes, when the boss caught me on trhe internet.

4. It is midnight in Heaven. You have just arrived. You are told that you can choose any kind of "Heaven" you want. What would that be?  I know this joke...when he wonders what he gets they say "that was the brochure version."

5. You have come back to Earth as something or someone else. Describe that entity. A high court judge...I'd be filling the prisons!

6. It is your first morning in Hades. What fascinating aspect of the underworld will you visit first? Do I have a choice when I'm in shackles and an imp is whipping me to work harder over hot coals?

7. Scientists have just created a new pill that induces immediate immortality. You can live forever! What are you going to do with the rest of your life?   Watch reruns on the TV? Perhaps I'd want an antidote pill?
