The Queen's Meme #8 ~ Bungee Jumping On Pheromones



I've tried to avoid this subject. It is the fickle fodder of many a meme these days. Romance, s*x, relationships and breakups are really nobody's business. Wouldn't you say? Or perhaps it's the questions that are too personal and a bit juvenile at times. Middle school smooching is not exactly the end all and be all of civilization. (Is it? I don't know. I seem to have forgotten.) To tell you the truth, I'm getting just a little sick of all the love shenanigans going on in the dungeon down below. I can hear you. You are all just a wee bit too happy if you ask me. If I didn't know better I'd swear you want to stay!
But seriously, we could all use a little lot of romance in our lives. I promise not to ask questions that would make your mother blush. I suggest you tell her not to read your blog tomorrow.

1. What is the craziest thing you've ever done in the name of love?
I started a blog. It has proved infinitely productive in finding a mate. No??

2. How much mystery should there be in a relationship? Is it a good thing or not?A fair amount of mystery is a good thing as long as there is no deception.
I did receive a mysterious message left in the comment section today from an Anonymous person on the Queen's Meme blog He (maybe she..who knows?) wrote a lovely thing. This is just part of it: " You write with such passion it makes me think. ....What I would not give to go for dinner with you just once, only to share the feeling of good companionship, to see you smile, and hear you laugh and get to know the real you.".....and other lovely things.
I like his brand of mystery.

3. Is there someone in the blogosphere you'd like to get to know more intimately? Have you been too shy to ask? Let me help you. Write a 3 sentence anonymous blove letter to them in this meme.
Leave a link if you dare. (I promise not to tell!)
Taking a deep breath. Here goes.
"Dear Adorable Blogger Person,
"I've been meaning to tell you for the longest time that I ....find you an absolute conundrum and irresistibly mysterious. You visit me daily and leave no comment but I know who you are. Please reveal yourself in an email or here. I promise not to throw you in the dungeon. Unless you dig dungeons. Perhaps you are the anonymous one?"

Or if you wish, do some matchmaking instead. "Dear Blogger #1 and Blogger #2, I think you would be perfect for each other. This is why..."Thank you Mimi Pencil Skirt. Now I have that stupid Matchmaker song stuck in my pencil head. Who wrote this meme??!
4. Describe a "perfect evening" with the one you love.

Planned perfect evenings sometimes go awry when perfectly planned. It is the spontaneity of romance that makes me smile. A kiss in the rain, an unexpected dance in public, fiddling on the roof (Oh just STOP with the song, will ya??!) Perfection is so overrated.

5. If you are in a relationship, describe the one thing that makes it work well for you. If you are not in a relationship, do you want to be? If so, what type of romance are you looking for? What would it look like in your life?
Communication is the key in ANY good relationship. But that is a practical love matter. Truly? Pinkie swear: I want to be swept away in the cords of friendship with someone and fall in the lap of an honest and unexpected passion. Sort of like bungee jumping on pheromones - without the net.
6. If you had to choose between having good s*x (I told you not to let your mother read this) OR intelligent conversation on a regular basis, which would you choose and why?





There is no good s*x without intelligent and playful banter.

Before, during, and after.

7. I've got the Bloggingham Blues. What type of man is right for Queen Mimi Pencil Skirt? Do any of you see love in her foreseeable future? What do you suggest I do to spice up my love life? What am I doing wrong????!
You have given me sage advice from across the blogosphere today. I really asked the question with no expectation of serious answers. It was a lark, a fleece perhaps. I do understand that I am not doing anything wrong, per se, as many of you said. I also understand that there are many people out there trying to bump into each other and we can't see to do it to save our lives. The things you wrote in your memes on the state of my love life were kind and uplifting. Thank you. Some were in private emails as well and can't be reprinted (!) but I appreciate those too! You know who you are.


And Mr. Anonymous, whoever you are.....know you made me smile today.

Please come out of hiding. Love might feel like this.

I agree... please come out of hiding Mr. Anonymous :)

I've been checking for this all afternoon, knowing you slept a much-needed, much-deserved sleep. You are an incredibly strong woman who has such a gentle torrent running through her. And I mean that statement and know that it is true. Gentleness does not begat weakness; it is fierce and loyal and laden with the sweet maturity of faith, hope and love. Wonder Woman? No. A wonder of a woman? Yes. If the man of the shadows never reveals? HE is the loser! And I will pull him into the brilliant light of a new dawn...Blessings!

Allie said...

I loved your answer to #4 =)

Mr. Lance said...

HAHAHA (laughing very hard)

I Made you blush!!!!!

(cough) that was un-called-for...

Mimi Lenox said...

Dawn - I think he desires to remain hidden..but hopefully not silent.

Mimi Lenox said...

LadyHighTower - Oh...I did need a long nap. It was wonderful.
I hope I can live up to your kind words and expectations. You are quite a brilliant wordsmith you know.

Mimi Lenox said...

Allie - But it's so true. I can remember an example of all those things from prior relationships (well, sans the roof fiddling) and it was those moments that defined the feeling.
Honest emotion strikes at the most inopportune times.
The most perfect times.

Mimi Lenox said...

Lance - I've reserved a dungeon room for you right next to the rats.

Laughing. Maniacal.

Homer The Palace Dog said...

Sir Lance - She won't even repeat what you said! Thank you for making her blush and embarrassing her. I am lovin' this....Don't tell her I said that though.

Mr. Lance said...

I like Rats! and who is this
Mr. Anonymous guy or girl stealing my MR.?

Have I been Knighted a Sir? If so I want a ceremony!

Svem said...

Fingers crossed for you and Mr Anonymous!

Thom said...

Good luck with Mr. Anonymous

Bond said...

Looks like a fun one - but sorry..I am late, so late for a very important date...

And Mr. Anonymous...SHOW YOURSELF - do NOT let this one get away my friend...she is a K-E-E-P-E-R

Xmichra said...

I loved all your answers :)

hopefully the-not-mr-annon will reveal him/her self to you :)

The Gal Herself said...

I especially loved that "umbrella" photo! Remember that scene in Little Women (book and movie) when Jo follows the Professor up the street in the rain and they talk about her novel and kiss under the umbrella? I doubt her feet were bare, but they could've been, Jo was that kind of girl. Anyway, this is a lovely photo and I hope to see you "in the picture" yourself soon.

PS Have you snared John Mayer for me yet?

Mojo said...

OOOhhh. Anonymous commenters starch my shorts. Truly. Yo, Anon! She doesn't bite, I swear. (Homer? Back me up on this one buddy.)

Seriously girl? Sometimes you just gotta close your eyes and take that bungee cord ride and trust that it'll stop you before the ground does. (Of course this is from someone in the Alone By Choice demographic... so take it for what it's worth.)

Jean-Luc Picard said...

4 was super...great umbrella pic!

An Eerie Tapestry said...

Great answers. Liked #4 and #5 especially. Hope Mr. Anonymous steps forward one day.

Mejis said...

Mr. Anonymous should really reveal his/herself to you. It's not like you bite or anything. Sheesh!

Anonymous said...

You are all very persistent, none of you like a good mystery?

Jamie said...

Dearest Queen,

I will pass on this meme as I have retired and everyone will just have to wait of the tales. Except there was this public beach after sundown ...

And as it happens I answered your number 7 today Durward Discussion

Let us hope Mr. Anonymous will meet you there.

Dawn (Twisted Sister) said...

Of course we like good mystery. Let the games begin Mr. Anon...

Travis said...

Just when I got all caught up, I'm going to fall behind again. Sheesh.

Mimi Lenox said...

Alas, Mr. Anonymous never revealed himself. I guess he was just a Jokester.

How sad to play tricks on me.
It is the kind of mystery I can do without. The blogosphere is full of complicated and strange people sometimes.
