This meme is stolen. I know where I got it but I'm not telling you. I was not tagged. I just lifted it right off the blog page. So there. I don't think anybody saw me. I know that makes me a meme thief but who cares? I pulled rank. I am the Queen of Memes ya know...at least I was the last time I checked (she humbly said).
250 200 too many questions below. Don't worry. I gave abbreviated answers. Feel free to abscond with the monster meme if you dare. There are alligators in the castle moat. Just sayin...

1. If a doctor told you TODAY that you were pregnant, what would you say?
Lead me to the nearest cliff.
2. Do you trust all of your friends?
Honestly, I don't trust all my casual friends, no. That's why they're still casual friends. But those who've proven true over the course of relationships or span of time, yes. I don't generally give my heart or vulnerabilities to people I sense are untrustworthy. I have pretty good instincts for motive and scope of personality. I do have a propensity for empathy and tend to divulge too much at times in the name of commiseration or support for someone. Of course, there are always instances in peoples' lives where others are just deceptive from the get-go and you don't see it until it's too late.
However, I can't think of anyone I've truly loved that has been purposely dishonest with me. Or I with them.
3. Would you move to another state or country to be with the one you love?
4. Do you believe that everything happens for a reason?
No. That would be intellectually insane. But I do believe that we take wisdom from each circumstance. Hopefully.
No, but I'm afraid of falling from cliffs. Isn't that the same thing?
I do think this is a rather bizarre question so I'll tell you a bizarre short story. My favorite scar would be the tiny one on my chin. I slept on the top bunk of the bunk bed as a child. I was so skinny that one night I fell between the rails (stop laughing) and hit the floor. Stitches. Not pretty. Now I just say it's a beauty mark. Of course, my ninety-year-old great-grandmother used to say that about the rings around her ankles when her pantyhose fell down, but who cares? We just followed her around and pulled 'em up.
I think I need to stop calling it a beauty mark. There wasn't anything beautiful about granny's ankle rings. Shudder.
11. When was the last time you flew in a plane?
The plane flew. I sat in it and rode to New England. April 2007
12. What did the last text message you sent say?
"Be there soon."
14. Fill in the blank. I love it when ________ pops over.
No one "pops over" to Bloggingham. You have to fly in via military jets, helicopter to the main lawn, chauffeur to the moat, step into a gondola and tip the musician while you float the moat to the castle door. By the time you get here, it's time to go home.
17. How many kids do you want to have? One. He's all grown up. And still my beautiful brown-eyed boy.
18. Would you make a good parent?
I believe I was a good parent. I hope I still am. I would have done a few things differently. Wouldn't we all? But I wouldn't want to go through the teenage years again.Nope. Definitely. Or diapers. Nope. Or screaming toddlers. Or....never mind. Four is very nice age though. The "why" phase.
19. On your My space, where was your default picture taken?
In my music room beside the piano
20. What's your middle name?
It's impossible for a Queen to have a middle name. We have too many names with lots of important sounding syllables and hifalutin vowels.

Call my best friend, Barbara. She can tell you.
22. If you could go back in time and change something, what would it be?
The invention of the nuclear weapons
23. Who was or will be the maid of honor/ best man in your wedding?
My sister was my maid of honor the first and only time I was married. She was with me also during the divorce party. We wore different clothes and had a much better time.
24. What are you wearing right now?
Black exercise leggings, a pink shirt, sneakers, pink socks, and a scar on my chin.
25. Righty or Lefty?
Alrighy then. I'm right-handed. Right brained. Left of center politically.
26. Best place to eat?
Any place but my kitchen
27. Favorite jeans?
Depends on who is wearing them. I usually don't. I can't find a denim crown to match.
28. Favorite animal?
I like to watch lions. From far far far away.
29. Favorite juice?
Cranberry. Who needs to know this??
30. Have you had the chicken pox?
No, actually. No one in my family can recall that I ever had them. I'm expecting to break out any minute. But lucky for me, only half my face will be affected.
31. Have you had a sore throat?
I have one now. Thank you for asking. Does that mean I'm getting the chicken pox??!
32. Ever had a bar fight?
I think not.
33. Who knows you the best?
34. Shoe size?
Five and a half. It is very difficult to find shoes.
35. Do you wear contact lenses or glasses?
Funky reading glasses that break a lot. I lose them constantly. I buy them in bulk. There is a pair within reach in every room of the castle. I usually have one pair on my head at all times, another pair around my neck on a chain at work and a spare in the glove compartment of my car. I'm constantly saying "I can't find my glasses." I never remember to look on my head first.
36. Ever been in a fight with your pet?
I don't have a pet except for Patticakes and Homer, my virtual cat and dog. They live in my sidebar. Homer is generally more chatty than I prefer.
He likes to tell my secrets and thinks he's way smarter than he is. Patti purrs alot in blogspeak.
They know better than to fight on a peace blog.
37. Been to Mexico?
38. Did you buy something today?
No. Even in the Christmas season I have amazing willpower!
39. Did you get sick today?
No. But I've had a knot in my stomach for a week. I hate that feeling.
40. Do you miss someone today? Yes.
41. Did you get in a fight with someone today?
Homer. He hid my glasses. He put them on his head.
42. When is the last time you had a massage?
It's been too long.
43. Last person to lay in your bed?
Do pillows count? I mean, if pillows count then I'm always snuggly warm. So that would be FIVE occupants. Otherwise, just me.
44. Last person to see you cry?
My best friend Barbara. It was not a happy week in Bloggingham.
45. Who made you cry?
Nobody MADE me cry. I chose to release my bewilderment/anger over a situation beyond my control in the walnut salad at our girl's night dinner.
I chose to cry. She chose to listen, hand me tissues and give me this advice: "Mimi, the truth always comes out sooner or later. Be patient and trust your instincts. If you've done all you can do, let it go. And then trust what you know in your heart is true." That's what best friends are for.
46. What was the last TV show you watched?
The football game is on right now but it's just background noise so I'm not actually watching it. Does that count? Do you care? Why am I answering this question? I do love to watch Cane on CBS Tuesday nights. Fantasy. Glamour. Romance. Mystery.
47. What are your plans for the weekend?
Plans I've made lately have been abruptly and mysteriously broken. Maybe I should read "How To Win Friends and Influence People" again?
48. Who do you think will play along?
I'm hoping the string quartet and a horn section at the concert next week. Their tempos currently are all over the place. Rehearsal is needed. And a muffler for the crying children in the audience. I already have a speech prepared though. "Please turn off all cellphones and crying children." It usually gets a giggle from the audience and then I have to interrupt our music to ask somebody to take their crying child out of the theater. What is WRONG with people??!
49. Who was the last person you hung out with?
You guessed it. My best friend, Barb. But she said if I don't stop crying she's never taking me out in public again. Walnuts or not, nobody wants a blubbering Queen.
50. If your "significant other" asked you to marry them TODAY what would you say?
I don't have one but I have ask - what makes an "other" significant? Eh? Is it dates logged? Vacations spent? Dishes thrown? Longevity? Passion? Ice cream dates? Sharing a bathroom? What?!
I would imagine should I find an "other" who is significantly significant, I would consider the proposal. But he'd have to ask me properly.Then I'd ask my best friend Barbara, before I answered. (grin)
