The Queen's Meme #10 ~ The Tick-Tock Meme





Welcome to The Queen's Meme #10Sometimes silly. Sometimes serious. Always fun!
Step out of the box. Be creative. Use your imagination.


No one's answers are quite like yours.
And please, stay out of the dungeon.
You don't want to go there.




The Tick-Tock Meme

1. Are you a Rolex watch, a Mickey Mouse watch, or a pocket watch?
I am definitely a Rolex. In my dreams. Truthfully, I do not wear a watch. Never have. Never will. Psychologically, I hate being reminded every second of the day what time it is. It makes me want to hurry hurry hurry.....not good for people. If I have to know I'll find out, but I don't want it staring me in the face all the time. Also, when I play piano, I would have to remove it. I don't wear rings either for the same reason.

2. Can you think of a time when you couldn't see the forest for the trees?
Today comes to mind.
(Those of you who know what's going on with me will appreciate this.)


3. Can you think of a time when you were on the outside looking in?
What did you see
?

I had just been arrested for meme stealing. It was a sad time in my life and that of my family. I ratted out the rest of the players and left them in jail to rot. Nobody ever said I was a nice Queen ya know. I've had finer days.
4. Go back in time. Maybe a long time ago, maybe today. Pick an hour you'd like to freeze frame forever and tell us why. It doesn't have to be THE most important hour of your life, but make it a good one.

It was the day little Homer was born.
He looked up at me and said, "Are you my new Queen?"



We've had a love/hate relationship ever since.

And he doesn't eat much for a blog dog.


5. If you were a cuckoo clock, what would others say about you?


6. Can you think of a time when time stood still?
I'm so glad you asked, Oh Meme Lady! I can certainly think of a time when Tim stood still. Ahh...the memory. He leaned in for a kiss as he held me against the kitchen counter at the end of the night, a strong-armed guy with long curly eyelashes that tickled my nose when he kissed me. It was my first date with Tim when Tim stood still.... and I hoped it would be the first of.....oh.....never mind. You said Time.

7. Watch this! You are a stopwatch. What would you stop?
I would stop fretting about unimportant things that don't matter in the grand scheme of things.
Ho-hum.

8. Imagine you were just born and have infinite wisdom. After the doctor smacks your newborn dust ruffle you look around and say to the Universe: "Give me a whole lifetime to do "this" and I will bless the day I was born." What did you choose?
Sing. Give me a whole lifetime to sing. I learned recently not to take it for granted.
In my future? More singing. Less fretting.

Now that's worth thinking about.....

Now, down to the answers, my Queen. I just had to get the other comment done so I could be first in case someone else writeth as I writeth! Great answers. I love having to think!

LADYHIGHTOWER said...

Am I seeing things or are you signed in twice? Did you want to maketh certain it was read? No worries there, my Queen!

Smorg said...

Guilty on almost all counts, your majesty. Feelin' very human now... ;o)

Dawn (Twisted Sister) said...

#7 is perfect.
I love the lovely land of the peace globes pic!

Mimi Lenox said...

LadyHighTower - Good to see ya! And huh? Signed in twice? Huh?

Mimi Lenox said...

Smorg - Me, too, my friend, me too.

Mimi Lenox said...

Dawn - I swear I live in this computer just like that!

Charles Gramlich said...

I guess the watch question answers everything for me. I'm a cheap knockoff;

Mojo said...

Um... "newborn dust ruffle"?

Linda said...

I can't imagine not wearing a watch!

If you're done with Tim, feel free to send him up this way!

Amanda said...

Mimi did you really name your dog Homer? That is so cute and silly all in one. I had a rolex and loved it till I smack on a corner at work and broke it (sob!) nicest watch I ever had! Oh well.

Jamie said...

Those are very thoughtful questions. Outside of never ever wearing a watch, some of the others hit just a bit too close to home for public consumption. Interesting answers on your side. If you get to spend a lifetime singing, I will be glad to play the piano for you for the same length of time.

Mr. Lance said...

My Queen...

If I lend you my ear, will you sing me a song?

Mimi Lenox said...

Charles - I highly doubt that.

Mimi Lenox said...

Mojo - It's a Mimi madeup word for baby's bottom.

Mimi Lenox said...

Linda - I'd like to keep him just a little longer.

Mimi Lenox said...

Amanda - I really named my imaginary dog Homer. Isn't he homely?

Homer The Palace Dog said...

I heard that, My Queen.

Mimi Lenox said...

Jean-Luc - And he did it so well!

Mimi Lenox said...

Amanda - I read your meme. It was great! Thank you for playing this week.

Mimi Lenox said...

Jamie - I look forward to it.

Finding Pam said...

Those were some great answers.
It seems that Homer knows you too well. LOL!

Where did you come up with these questions?

Mimi Lenox said...

Mr. Lance - Ummm....perhaps. But I already have two ears ya see.

Mimi Lenox said...

Pam - Homer is a blabbermouth, apparently. Who knows?
