The Queen's Meme #21 ~ At Least He Was a King

**I realize this meme is nearly a week tardy.......... but I've been...ummm...busy.
I promise to do better.**




Sometimes silly. Sometimes serious.
Always fun!
Step out of the box. Be creative.
Use your imagination.
No one's answers are quite like yours.

Once upon a time in a faraway Bloggiverse there lived a maiden named Queen Mimi Pencil Skirt. She slayed her own dragons, stoked her own fire and well.....wrote memes by the light of the Bloggingham moon. One day a kind blogger from England noticed her meme lovin' ways and royally crowned her Mimi Queen of Memes. As time passed in the peaceful kingdom of Bloggingham, her Royal Highness found comfort in the company of fellow bloggers who also loved memes. But the Queen had a wicked disposition too. It is widely reported in historical Blogosphere archives that any and all bloggers found guilty of not completing their memes were promptly thrown into the dreaded Bloggingham dungeon. If I were you, I'd do the meme.


This is a royal twist on an old meme. I just wish I'd found these gems when I was actually twenty-one.This is how it works: You must follow the directions to the letter.

1. Find the nearest bookshelf of your favorite reads, cookbooks, tech books, magazines. It doesn't matter. This will work for all print media. If you don't have seven books lined up on a shelf, grab the first seven you see around the house.
2. Book #1: Turn to page 21. Read the 21st sentence (you may have to turn the page).
Write it down.
3. Do the same with the first seven books or articles you see. The sentences will make a paragraph. You must write them down in the order you found them.4. When you are finished, read over your "story" and title it.5. Show us your bibliography at the end of this meme. Hmmm...I wonder if we'll be surprised at the reading material we may find. I just did mine. It was rather shocking! I didn't cheat. I promise! Don't you either....or it's you-know-where for you.



MY RESULT!!


King James and The Untouchables (sorta by Queen Mimi Pencil Skirt)

"You long for his claim to open you so deeply that your surrender is inevitable, love-forced beyond your own doing. During the reign of the next King, James II. Becuz the dog would a seen him a'coming and stood from under.
In fact, he expected it.
The way a title presents information, its "look and feel", is known as its interface.
The constitution of the nation of India today outlaws "untouchability," and makes it a criminal offense to discriminate against anyone because of his caste, color or creed. He said he would make a long underground tunnel from the palace to a safe place in a forest far away."



Sentence Bibliography from the bookshelf of the disgraced Queen:

1. Dear Lover (A Woman's Guide to Enjoying Love's Deepest Bliss) by David Deida - I have no idea how that got on my bookshelf. I swear!
2.
Then Sings My Soul (150 of the World's Greatest Hymn Stories) by Robert J. Morgan
3.
The Norton Anthology of American Literature, Third Edition, Volume 2 ~ Taken from Samuel Clemens Roughing It (The Story of the Old Ram)
4.
The Purpose Driven Life by Rick Warren
5. Multi-Media - The Complete Guide
6. The World's Great Religions - A Deluxe Golden Book by the Editorial Staff of LIFE
7. Tales from Indian Classics , Book I ~ Retold by
Savitri
I kid you not.
I will never make up a haphazard meme again as long as I blive (that's blog + live for all you non-blog speakers.) I really need to get out more. That's what I get for having an insane curiosity and knowing a little bit about a lot of things.
It's a sad shocking day in the Kingdom of Bloggingham.
(not really)

I just said that to be dramatic you know.

I was going to make a comment on your borrowed story, but my word verification got me all kerfluffled and I forgot what I was going to say.

My word verification was hymen.

I. Kid. You. Not.

I find your library totally believable since that insane curiosity bug infected me as well. Don't know about you, but there are moments when some bit of totally useless trivia pops up and I wonder where in the world that piece of lint stuck to a grey cell.

Well done on your own meme.
