Quirky Love Me



I, Mimi Pencil Skirt, shamelessly stole this meme from Debbie at Through Thick 'n Thin. I hope she forgives me.
If not, she'll let me know and I'll send her a box of homemade cookies to make up for it. Shhh....don't tell her I'm lethal in the kitchen. The last time I cooked, someone was poisoned.


1. If you could only eat one fruit for an entire year and that fruit would magically be in season and ripe that full year, which fruit would you choose and why?

Fruitcakes. That's a fruit, right? Check out this site. The fruitcakes are fresh all year!

2. What is something that makes you sad?
Bachelor # 323 on Mis-Match.com, who wrote in his profile headline:"I'm The Last Of A Dying Bread"....

It is "breaking" my heart.
I crack myself up....

3. What would you do if you came home from an extended vacation and found that someone else was living in your house?
This actually happened to me once. Her name is Elsa. She's a ghost who took up residence in Bloggingham one dark rainy night while I was in the Bahamas with a Fruitcake.

4. What US President, alive or otherwise, would you like to have dinner with?
John F. Kennedy. I would ask him about Marilyn and the birthday dress. Did she sing in tune? Did he notice? Bill Clinton. I would ask him about Monica, the blue dress and great sax playing in the White House. You know...the important stuff. (Can you tell I'm tired of the election rhetoric? I'm craving frivolity.)

5. What is your opinion on multitasking while driving? (Reading a book or work documents, changing clothes, fixing hair, applying make up, shaving your face, etc etc)

Shaving my face??!! I think not. But I have been known to put on my pantyhose in traffic.
It's a gift.


6. Do you ever multitask while driving? If so, how often would you say you are guilty of it?

When am I not multitasking while driving? That is the better question. And a confession.
So arrest me!


7. Do you tend to be early, on time, fashionably late or LATE to work and work related events? Do you tend to be more or less punctual for non-work related events?
I am on time for the most part; except for that one day in 1962 when Marilyn had to stand in for me and sing Happy Birthday to the President. My broken alarm clock was her lucky day.


8. What is a quirk your significant other has that you would define as "cute"? If you have no SO, what is a quirk you find cute in a potential SO?

Do we have time for this?
I do not have a "significant other" but if I did....my potential boyfriend aka Knight In Waiting would be the personification of cute and would have an abundance of dimply quirks in all the right places.

And he would quirky love me for who I am.
Quirks and all.

Finding Pam... said...

Hey Mimi, I managed to get my peace globe. Are you ready for this? I could not find Mr.Linky because well, I think that is self explanatory! Therefore, I could not leave a post. Your post about your son was so very poignant.

Shannon H. said...

No one is allowed to arrest the Queen! There are rules about that...I think.

Charles Gramlich said...

It's always a shame when Bread dies too young.

Mimi Lenox said...

CRACKING UP AT CHARLES!

Mimi Lenox said...

Shannon - But if it happens, you will bail me out...right?

Linda said...

Ah-ha, so before Star stole this meme from you, you stole it from someone else! To think that our own Queen is promoting thievery throughout the Blogosphere .. shame, shame!

Dawn said...

The last of a dying bread...
It's breaking my heart too and YOU crack me up!

LOL!!!!!!!!!!!
Ah, Mimi, your blog is good for my soul.

Mojo said...

Submitted for your approval:
You can skip the boring stuff I wrote if you want to and just scroll down to the bottom of this post.

And if that doesn't do it, then try this one.

And the dimples... well...

Mimi Lenox said...

Pam - Glad you made it to the party.

Linda - Crime runs deep and rampart in blogworld. I should know. The dungeon is full of meme dodgers and such cohorts as that....

Mimi Lenox said...

Dawn - Dating sites are nuts. End of story. I hate 'em!!

Mimi Lenox said...

Autumn - So glad to hear it and that you are laughing. I needed a laugh too...now, back to serious world peace (puts serious face on)

Mimi Lenox said...

Mojo - I am off to check it out and report back to you.

Well, dimples are for another discussion. Another time. Ahem...

mark's tails said...

I can understand how bachelor #323 feels. I'm the last of a dying focaccia.

Mimi Lenox said...

Mark - You poor thing!

Bud Weiser, WTIT said...

This is proof as to why you are the Queen...of Memes!

Lee said...

I must correct Your Highness. You have many significant others. It's just that they are all platonic relationships. Your Royal Subjects all love you to death.

Mimi Lenox said...

Bud - Thank you.

Lee - You have no idea how much I needed to hear that tonight.

Tammy said...

You may think I'm crazy, but I actually like fruitcake. It has to be homemade fruitcake though, the store bought stuff is yucky.

Julie said...

GACK @ fruitCAKE!

Mimi Lenox said...

Tammy - Have you thought of going to the doctor for a cure of this affliction? Seriously!

Julie - Am I right or what??!

Travis said...

It occurs to me that I do not like fruitCAKE. And that makes me sad because I love CAKE and all CAKE should be good.

The Gal Herself said...

Last of a dying "bread" is unutterably sad for a lot of reasons, isn't it?

I think of all 43 US Presidents, Bill Clinton would be the most fun to go on a road trip with. You know he's pay extra for the convertible, he'd be willing to stop at every diner along the way, and while I may not trust him with a young intern, I completely trust his ability to find good tunes on the radio, regardless of where we were.

Thanks for the kind words on my blog over the weekend. I don't know for sure that I'll be let go, but signs to seem to be pointing that way. You're very perceptive -- soaking in the tub helps.
