The Woodstock Meme ~ My Eye Adored You



The Queens' Meme #5
Click to play!

Forty years ago this week, three days of peace, love and rock 'n roll (and mud) happened near Bethel, New York. It was the Summer of 1969.
Attire: Hippie jeans. Long hair. Legal or illegal smoke. Psychedelic vibe.

The scene: You are at Woodstock. You go alone but meet up with a beautiful man/woman. You spend three days together.
Put yourself inside the peace & love vibe. You can choose to be stoned or straight. I put it in the story for the sake of reality. Just don't inhale in this meme.
This is the conversation you have upon meeting or you can make it into what you overhear others say.
Oh! I forgot to tell you (must be the smoke in here) You have a new name. It must a combination of the first letter of your first name, the third letter of your middle name and the last letter of your last name.
Peace out! Somebody might wanna turn on a fan in here.

1. "Hello, my groovy name is MNX. Cool, I always wanted to be a minx!
By the looks of those flowers in your hair, you must be hungry. Need herbs?
Didn't they tell you? No condoms allowed!



2. Come on, Baby, light my marshmallow pit . I want to sing Kumbaya.
When I lay me down to minx I pray the Lord my integrity to keep.
If I fall in love before I wake, I pray the newspaper my picture NOT to take.
**puff puff**


3. Because the first time ever I saw your rap sheet I realized that what the world needs now is a good sweet attorney. Besides, I always feel guilty watching you sweat behind bars when I should be in there with you.
But I dig it!

4. Have I told you lately that I adore you and your love bug beetle? Hey! Don't step on that romantic lie !!
Dude. That guy is really weird but.....


5. There's a party in my sleeping bag and half a million of my sober and boring friends are coming over tonight and we're gonna hokey pokey my baby off my mind. Darn the luck. It's raining booze (s) and pot (s)!
AGAIN!
Luckily, Papa was a rolling pots and pan salesman and I'm on a first name basis with the cops.
**puff puff**

6. I'm really digging your peace globe tattoo but that nose ring has got to go. Those flowers in your hair are beginning to smell like marijuana.
Have I told you lately that I can inhale you?


** cough cough**

7.
I'm beginning to see flying elephants in those trees over there. Do you see it?
Out of all the millions of hippies here, you are the most odious.. my eye adored you.!!But I dig it, man.

**puff puff**

8. I'd use all my blood, sweat and pencil skirt power just to get next to your funky dad with the Business degree.
Love is free but I'd really like to buy that guy's suburban minivan love shack for a long night of pencil skirt passion.
It says "Make Queen babies, not long term investments. " Far out!


9.
I'm grateful to be dead 'cause there's a bad smell rising in Jefferson's Airplane. But that's okay, 'cause Joe Cocker said I could get by with a little deodorant from my friends.

10.Oh, by the way, your hair is on fire. But I dig it.


I do, I do, I do have a picture of myself in bell bottoms from the mid 70s.
I promise to try and scan it when I return from the dentist this morning.
It's a perfect day for laughing gas. Sometimes the stars just align that way. Groovy.
After reading all these smokin' memes today, I hope I don't say something to embarrass myself....

1st LOL: Kumbaya
I desperately wanted a Beetle for my 1st car. Now I realize it's no good for grocery-getting. *sigh*
2nd LOL: Hokey pokey! I love it!!!
Yay! Homer's back! I think I adopted his son Charlie on Facebook My Puppy, but for some reason, it's been firewalled for profanity. (??????????)
Ah ha! You were on my wavelength for #9, weren't you? ;)

The Gal Herself said...

We both seem a little suspect of Grace Slick's hygiene. But that's our only overlap.

Jean-Luc Picard said...

I looked forward to this one! Most who were at Woodstock probably can't remember!

Thom said...

Oh your most beautiful Queen in all the land...Kumbaya ROFLMAO. "minivan love shack" was the best...Oh the B-52's gotta love ya. :)

coopernicus said...

this is going to take a while...but I'll get there...careful of the elephants...

Mimi Lenox said...

Autumn - Profanity? You?
Yay for Homer!

But I think he's stoned.

Mimi Lenox said...

Gal - I need to get over and read your Woodstock experience. I'll be there soon.
As soon as I get this dental nitrous out of my system....

Mimi Lenox said...

Jean-Luc - This should be good...

Mimi Lenox said...

Thom - You're gettin' there. Keep laying on the charm. You might get out of the dungeon in say...10 years or so.

Don't you love the mini van love-in idea? Put me right in a mellow mood.

Mimi Lenox said...

Coopernicus - I saw 'em in the dentist chair too.
In fact, I still 'em.

Bond said...

Interesting take Queen...

Now stop bogarting and pass that joint

Mimi Lenox said...

Thom - Don't come over here trying to make nice with me now. I just read your meme.

You don't have a snowball's chance in hell of ever getting out of that dungeon.

Charles Gramlich said...

I thought I wanted a beetle. Until I rode in one. But later I did have one. My wife at the time actually won one in a contest.

Mimi Lenox said...

Vinny - What is bogarting?

Mimi Lenox said...

Charles - Interesting. A friend of mine had a yellow one when we were in high school. It was so much fun riding to school in her stick shift little Beetle...but it felt like we were literally sitting on the asphalt as we rode. VERY scary to think about today.
And she drove waaaay too fast.

Kitten said...

I hope that your dental visit went all right. And I happen to love the bumper sticker answer in #9.

I had always wanted to own one of the original Beetles...but my father owned one way back in the day, and it died on him in the middle of a highway. He's hated Volkswagen since.

Finding Pam said...

Great answers Mimi...
This was a difficult meme for me.

Xmichra said...

you see elephants, i see bugs... something tells me you might be better off.... lol...

Julie said...

Ummmm...a party in your WHAT?

Mojo said...

Uhh... wow. You get really chatty when you're stoned, don't you?

But I dig that about you!

Ricardo said...

I think my dad went to his grave still thinking this was going on. He was stuck in 1969.

Mimi Lenox said...

Kitten - Beetles were a sign of the times for sure.

Mimi Lenox said...

Pam - I'll bet you were just as groovy as always...

Mimi Lenox said...

Julie - You're invited!

Mimi Lenox said...

Xmichra - At least you can use pest spray. I don't know how to rid myself of the elephants.
It's a problem.

Mimi Lenox said...

Mojo - Chatty? Me??!

Mimi Lenox said...

Ricardo- Ummm...Excuse me, Ricardo, but it is still going on. Where have you been?

Travis said...

Now this one is really wild, dude.

Julia Smith said...

Woops - can you tell I've had a busy week...? I can't believe I didn't leave you a comment. I thought I had, already. Woopsie...

'Come on, Baby, light my marshmallow pit. I want to sing Kumbaya.' - LOL!!

By the way, thanks for the reminder about the Woodstock anniversary. It gave me the topic for both my Thursday Thirteen and my post at my group blog, Popculturedivas.

Mimi Lenox said...

Travis - Well, I'm a wild kind of girl.
Not.

Julia - 'Come on, Baby, light my marshmallow pit. I want to sing Kumbaya.' - LOL!!

Woodstock is a frame of mind, isn't it? But something tells me they weren't singing Kumbaya.
