A Mindless Meme to Pass the Time

Readers: Here's an interesting twist on the age-old meme. It's a ready made list of things you just copy into your post. Highlight/bold those things you've actually done. I seriously stole this from Zeek's site! Zeek writes The Way I See It and is a fairly new visitor to my blog. Thanks for the post idea tonight! I hereby tag the following to do the same (if you so desire)..  Annelisa, Maryam, Lizza, Bond
(I've also been tagged by Dr. Anonymous to do a musical meme. Will finish tomorrow and tag-and re-tag others.)

Lizza said...

Your little comments made me laugh! My list is going to make me look so unaccomplished. :-)

Thanks for the tag, Queen.

Zeek said...

HA! That's just great! Take it you're an opera singer?! WOW! NOW I'm impressed!

"45. Stolen a sign (Does watching-from-afar count??!)"

I *almost* highlighted this one then I remembered I actually wasn't the one stealing the sign!

Bud Weiser, WTIT said...

Happy Birthday Miss Lenox! Survive it!

Mimi Lenox said...

Thank you Mr. Weiser. I will try to survive. However, there are black tombstones on my door this morning left by some evil little elf. "Age in Pieces" is not very nice! There's a lunch party brewing that smells of equally morbid mischief. Nor sure I'm going to survive that but will let you know. Film at 11.
And thanks for remembering, my friend.

Lizza said...

It's your birthday???

Happy, happy birthday, Mimi!!!!!

Here's a peace cake for you. Best wishes to you, you lovely lady.

madd said...

Hey Mimi..just found out from bud..Happy Birthday!! BTW I had fun doing the comedy comp..some very funny asnwers there, I am hooked and will definitly try it again..maybe with different words..:)..lol any way..I love your list, and your answers..along with your comments..I had posted this the other day and was completely surprised by what I had actually done. It is surprising when you really think back, my son was so funny after he read it..'you go mom' didn't know you were all that!'..my reply..I wasn't always a mom you know!!..:)take care my friend..m

Mimi Lenox said...

Lizza...I'm not sure causing a car accident (or two) makes me "accomplished" but I try! I can't wait to see your list. Thanks for stopping by!

Mimi Lenox said...

I think this means both of us were guilty by association. (wink)! Thanks for the meme. I loved doing it.

Mimi Lenox said...

Oh Lizza! Thank you so much for my birthday peace cake. I LOVE IT. Yummm......tastes great too!
Did you bake this with your own two hands??

Lizza said...

Oh, I wish I did, Your Royal Highness. Alas, all that these two hands did was to steal a photo of the peace cake from the Web. :-D

Bond said...


Today is a birthday
I wonder for who
I know it's for somebody right in this room

So look all around you for somebody whoooooo

Is smiling

Happy wishes today and I will take the tag, but will hold it until Friday..if that is OK?

CountryDew said...

Happy Birthday. Love your blog and your outlook on life. Love the list, too, and will promptly borrow!

Peace always!

Michael C said...

I too liked your commentary. You've done more of them than I have!

Maryam in Marrakesh said...

Oh lovely birthday girl..who was that celebrity? Horribly, terribly curious...

I will take up your tagging challenge but on Friday b/c I just wrote my sad post for tomorrow and need to get it off my chest for therapeutic reason...

Mimi Lenox said...

Bond - Thanks for the birthday poem and wish. I could just hear you singing it. Very nice. Can't wait to read your meme.

Mimi Lenox said...

Hi Countrydew! Nice to see you again. Hope you enjoyed your visit.

Mimi Lenox said...

Michael. Great to see you as always. I will read your answers!

Mimi Lenox said...

Maryam - The celebrity shall remain nameless, my dear. A pity, too. Such a juicy, scandalous and Mimi-like story. Sigh. But could be coaxed after too much Chardonnay.....should I take a Moroccan vacation anytime soon. (wink) Definitely a girl-talk in the making.
