The Queen's Meme #22 ~ Come On Baby, Light My Fire

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.

Before you get carried away and let your mind wander down a trail of romantic and erotic intrigue, stop. We're not talking about that kind of fire. Not today anyway. We're talking about intellect, entertainment and adventure. I'd like you to take a look at the what makes you happy and brings you joy. Pretend you are talking to a new friend. Answer the questions as enthusiastically as you can and share with your friend what lights your fire. Recommend your favorites, what you're passionate about - and tell us why. If it's too hard to choose just one, narrow it down to the best of the best. Everyone who reads your answers will not only get a better sense of who you are but we might be inspired to check it out upon your expert recommendation. I like learning something new everyday. If you open the door of my imagination, I just might step through. Tell me!
1. Which historical figure do you admire the most? Why?
Queen Mimi Pencil Skirt I from Great Blogdom. She was my great-great-great-Blogmother. Pale but lovable. If I hadn't come along, we'd all still be wearing skirts like this. I owe my life to her today; an imaginary castle, an imaginary title, an imaginary crown and an imaginary dog. Imagine.

2. Name the band or artist you'd like to see live in concert before you leave the planet or tell us about a concert or album that has already rocked your world.

Too much music. Too little time. I'd like to see the Beatles live. That ship has sailed.

3. What's your favorite television show or series of all time?
Why should I care?

Of all time is a tough one. Of right now is easier (Gee, Mimi, your questions are hard this week. What got into you??) I enjoy 24 sans the violence. I only watch with one eye most of the time.

. Movies! I am so behind on the movie scene. What should I watch this weekend? Should I watch it alone or with someone?

I have learned never ever ever ever to watch a movie alone. If it's romantic I'll get all nostalgic and cry. If it's violent there is no one no one's shirt to hide under to protect me. If it's funny there is no one to share a laugh with. Now I'm so depressed. Maybe I should go watch a movie.

. You are hopping on a plane tomorrow morning. Where did you choose to go and why?
Upon further review I realize this question makes no sense. I phrased the first part in the future and the second in the past tense. I refuse to answer it in the here and now because apparently I returned before I started.

6. Who is your favorite author? What about their writing inspires you or simply entertains you? Recommend at least one book that you feel I must read.

Everyone in the world should read Night by Elie Wiesel. I'd like to ship a personal copy to Hugo Chavez and Iran's Achmacrazyajad.

7. Hobbies and passions. What brings you joy in your spare time? How did you get into it?

The short list: I wrote my first poem at seven. My first song at ten. My first book at twelve (don't ask) and my first blog at ...never you mind. My love of melody and words have entangled themselves nicely, don't you think? I never know what will spill from the pen - and that is an endless joy.
The fact that you read my thoughts, double joy. In case I haven't said it lately, thank you.

See you tomorrow!

You know I love a good wonky tense. I do it all the time with my DWTS posts. I go from the now to the then with ease and distinction.

Jamie said...

Oh my where to start. The kindred spirits are on display. Elie Wiesel is a jewel. I went elsewhere, but this is wonderful.

Xmichra said...

The queen portraits were incredible! or... are incredible?? whatever tense you'd like, concider it flattery.

I really enjoyed the meme this week, even if it was a little tough to narrow down.

Nicely responded to...except for the one you did not respond to..

What'd ya think of Renee sawing the guy's arm off last week on 24?!?! Gaaah! I ♥ Jack Bauer.
