Psychedelic Buttercups

I felt like being completely silly today. Do you mind?
I totally lifted this meme from my buddy
Travis. He did it up right and got it from Turnbaby. I learned that he is a strawberry, a thunderstorm, and a bookcase. Who knew??

I started to steal his most current meme entitled Six Word Life Motto (that he pilfered-in-a-friendly-sort-of-way from Starrlight )but decided it might take some serious thought.

That's not going to happen today.
My serious button has been temporarily unplugged.

The If I Were Meme.....
(watch out for falling bookcases)

If I were a direction I’d be..........lost If I were furniture I’d be...........a coffee table book table
If I were a liquid I’d be......

If I were a gem/stone I’d be......a diamond in the rough
If I were a metal I’d be.....
a platinum gold album.
(This was my Band Meme CD cover.Strange, huh?)

If I were a tree I’d be.......something sturdy, strong and definitely unbendable.
If I were a flower I’d be a .......psychedelic buttercup
with a mind of its own

If I were a fruit I'd be.......a mango (known as the "queen's fruit" in honor of Queen Victoria.) But I never liked Queen Victoria. Once, in 1745, she stole my beau.
I'd like to be a pomegranate in protest if you don't mind.
If I were weather I’d be.......a flake of snow topped with a gallon milk, 3 cups of sugar and vanilla flavoring. Snow cream!
If I were a music instrument I’d be........a piano.

If I were an element I’d be..........the chemical formula N20 otherwise known as I-don't-care-if-there's-a-long-ugly-needle-in-my-mouth-even-if-the-dentist-is-cute nitrous oxide.

Laughing gas. It is part of the Earth's atmosphere. And part of my dental cleanings.

Long live hysterica inducing chemicals.
If I were a colour I’d with a shade of prissy pink thrown in for a pencil skirt splash..

If I were an animal I’d be.......Daisy The Curly Cat. Who wouldn't wanna be Daisy?

If I were a sound I’d be......a silent sigh after a long slow dance.

for the night has been unkind.." McLachlan

If I were a song I’d be........."Send OUT The Clowns" (sorry Sondheim)
If I were a music type I’d be........Lyric Coloratura karaoke. If you know what a lyric coloratura soprano is (which I am) then you know how ridiculous the karaoke would be.

If I were a word I’d be........oops. If I were a verb I’d be....... oops.
If I were an object I’d be......Princess Patti's footstool. She doth write succinctly. Check her out. I bow to her succinctness. Is that a word, Your Princessness? It looks non-succinctly. Un-succinctly. Not succinct. Ly.

If I were a piece of clothing I’d be.......a pencil skirt.


If I were a body part I’d be.........nails.

Nails are body parts. Right?
If I were a facial expression I’d be.......only half-spressed.

What posted on Mimi Writes one year ago today? Mimi's Minutes Meme


Patti said...

Ah, your Majesty, you doth maketh my morning.

I was reading along enjoying your prose, and then all of a sudden..
you mentioned me.

Your highness, I am humbly humbled, and filled with humility.

There is only one teensy problem here. It's a DAFFODIL!

It could be psychedelic, if you say so, but it's a daffodil.

Deana said...

Those are all great answers. I think I'd pick Mango too, I'd want something sweet but exotic and Gone with the Wind is a good choice, or Pretty Woman. Some of Martin and my first dates were so much like poor Julia's out with Richard Gere. I had so much to learn back then!

katherine. said...

this is a great meme....I learned so much about you!

I'd do it if I could get out through May.

Carver said...

I enjoyed this post so much. Great answers and shots to go with it. I'm a female tenor who envies coloratura sopranos. However, my voice has had its perks. I was in a local production of Jesus Christ Superstar and when vocal rehearsals broke up by voice parts, I got to rehearse with the men. It was men and Carver rehearsals. Cracked me up. I'd love to hear you sing Mimi.

Sandee (Comedy +) said...

That was delightful Mimi. Gone With The Wind and Cheetos did it for me. Excellent. I'll give it a go. I have to stay out of that dungeon of yours. :)

Akelamalu said...

Loved reading all these things about you. Errrm I keep it in hand until I have a minutes Mimi.x

Sandee (Comedy +) said...

Mine is up Mimi. Here's the link: The If I Were Meme..." It was fun and I don't have to worry about that dungeon of yours for the rest of the month. :)

Charles Gramlich said...

That cat in pink looks a little POed.

If I were a lyric I'd be "Shout at the Devil."

If I were a cartoon character I'd be Charlie brown. Who else.

Bond said...

excellent job...i did this one so no dungeon for me....


Mo said...

Just the other day, I was wondering how my Psychedelic Buttercup (meaning YOU) was doing!

Travis said...

Psychedelic Buttercup eh?

I love it when you get silly!

Linda said...

Nice to see you in such great meme form! Most excellently done, Your Majesty!

As someone who possesses a "Get Out of the Dungeon Free" card I think I can skip out on this one, right? Or is that not right? You'll have to refresh my royal memory!

Mimi Lenox said...

Princess Patti - You know how I feel about your royal succintness. Succintedness? Succinteddyness?
Rats! I can't even spell it.

It's a daffodil?

Deana - Sweet and exotic. Yep. That's you.
And for the record, I STILL have a lot to learn about men. But I don't expect that to ever change.
Nor do I want or expect them to understand me either. Isn't that the way it's supposed to be??!

Katherine - Are you trying to bargain with the Queen? SURELY not. May you say?

Carver - That was quite an unusual experience for you I'm sure. So glad you didn't say "countertenor"....have you ever heard a true one? I'd like to hear you sing as well!
Jesus Christ Superstar is a great show.

Sandee - Your meme was excellent as well. I enjoyed learning about your preciousness.....We don't have to call you precious, do we???
But I think you really are. Just for the record.

Akelamalu - I will look forward to your meme and I will be over to check out what you wrote about the other day as soon as I get out of this bloggy ocean for a minute.

Sandee - Nope,Sandee. No dungeon for you.

Charles - Of course, Charlie Brown! And you're right. Daisy looks wickedly pensive.

Bond - Hold on there. Don't come over here starting your drive-by memeing with me again. I see you!
Could you do another one? Pretty pleeeaaasse?

Mo - That's nice of you, Mo. Princess Patti said I'm not a buttercup. She insists I'm a daffodil. I don't want to be a daffodil!!
Yep. Cranky might be my middle name. Silly it was though this morning. I like silly better.

Travis - Sometimes the silly overtakes me and I can't stop. It's an affliction.

Duchess of Norwich Upon The Thames aka Linda - That would be correct. Last we met whilst in your neck of the woods, I did promise you clemency from all forms of punishment. I shall keep my word. On my honor. Cross my heart. And all that stuff.

You're free as a Duchess can be!
(until the next meme that is...)

Bud Weiser, WTIT said...

I guess 'cause I wasn't tagged, that I've got to steal it...

Julie said...

Well I love your answers! This is a fun meme isn't it?

I did it back on April 4th....but only a couple people commented. I liked it and say "harumph" to those who didn't!


bundle-o-contradictions said...

Oh, Your Highness, may I have an extention on the meme? I've been out of blogland for a couple of days & need to catch up. I'm not to be condemned, am I? **cowering**

Carver said...

Hi Mimi, I think my voice teacher would qualify as a true countertenor. He can sing alto when needed in choirs and mezzo soprano and he has sung in the soprano range too. His voice is remarkable from the baritone range all the way up into soprano. I don't take voice any more but we got to be friends and when he directed Jesus Christ Superstar in the mid 1990s he talked me into auditioning and singing with the men. He is who figured out I was a tenor. I can sing down into the baritone range and up into mezzo soprano but no one would want to hear me sing up there. I'm best in standard tenor range, although also fair when singing baritone for shock value, ha. I sang tenor in a Church choir for a couple of years which was fun.

Yoli said...

I love reading you! You are so imaginative.

Mimi Lenox said...

Julie - I'll go back and read it later. It was fun but a little exhausting too! And silly.

Autumn - I will write you a pass. Sigh.

Carver - True countertenors have a very distinct and quite frankly, odd sound. It is not for everyone and is a vocal phenomenon to say the least.
How do you sing in the baritone range and not damage your cords? I do it to teach parts to tenors/baritones at times and it is brutal. So I have to drink lots of water and keeping telling myself I'm really a soprano!
Not good for the voice.
I'd love to hear a recording of your voice sometime.

Yoli - Thank you. I LOVED your blog. I shall continue to haunt you. Come back anytime!

Speedcat Hollydale said...

Ohh gosh ... I want to be a cheeto as well. Then, when I got a hug (it happens) there would be an orange imprint to show were I've been!
Hi Mimi, I will give it a go this weekend if time allows.
The message in a bottle sure was a big success; the second round? Whoo hoo a meme for the record books. They are kept at the Hollydale Blog Library :-)

Merry weekend and all,

Odat said...

"....a silent sigh after a long dance...." ***Sigh***


Denise said...

Greetings... I ventured over here from Mary's Writing Nook.. I love your blog and it was a fun read..... I wanted to ask you a how to question... In your comment on Mary's blog you put a hyper link on her comment page.. I think it was Message In a Bottle.. I have tried and tried to hyper link to another web address in the comment section but have never learned how.. could you help?

thanks and have a blessed weekend

kathleenmaher said...

Mimi, you are so much the Queen of Memes, I can't imagine joining--it may be like singing. You grow up with an authority saying, "You can't sing," and so you don't. And then you can't. This meme, silly or not, is yours; it belongs to you. Some people can maybe riff on it, but others can only lie down and soak in the beams.

Misty Dawn said...

Yup, you definitely rock! I did this meme too, and I was completely silly through the whole... long... thing hehe

Funny though... both of us would be "lost" if we were a direction! Hey - let's be lost together, K?!?!

Mimi Lenox said...

Eric - You have a library at your blog? And I thought a castle was something! I'll be right over for a Cheeto hug.

Odat - ...I see you picked up on my romantic musings. Yes, a long slow dance and a sigh would be nice about now...then a kiss...and then a long slow dance...and then a kiss. OK. I'll snap out of it now.

Denise - Good to see you. I sent an email reply with the instructions. I hope they worked.

Kathleen - As I've said before, you are a poetic lamb...even in comments. Thank you so much for always supporting me - even when I'm silly.

Misty Dawn - I'd love to be lost with you! That would be soooo much fun and I'm long overdue.

Sanni said...

I loved your answers (as usual), oh Queen! Yes, I wouldn´t mind to be all Daisy :-)

Mimi Lenox said...

Sanni - Daisy leads a charmed life. Now get back to bed dear.

barbara said...

Hi Mimi,
Just ringing in at the Palace.
Once again, a meme from Mimi is anything but ordinary ;)

Enjoying every bit of it as usual.
You take care.
