Well, I Declare!


I could play this straight but I won't. I'm in a whimsy mood but could stray into serious periodically. We shall see what my stream of consciousness doth bring....

French philosopher, Voltaire (1694 - 1778) wrote….
“Man is free at the moment he wishes to be.”
This is your moment.
What sayeth you on the subject of freedom?
Fill in the blanks. Make your own Declaration of Independence. Freely choose your destiny. Embrace your inner freedom.
Some questions are serious. Some are silly. All are revealing. Have fun! It's time to play The Queen's Meme.



I hold these truths to be self-blevident! (That’s blog + evident for all you non-blog speakers)

I declare myself to be free from inhibitions.

I wish I could free myself of spammers.

I am thankful that he freed me from my necklace which was caught in my earring!

I don't mind paying for pencil skirts but pencils should be free.

I am free to buy another pencil skirt over and over again. In fact, I look forward to it!

If I could choose one freedom I don’t have today it would be free from financial obligations and able to travel the world at will. But first I would spread the wealth among family and friends.

In a free and perfect world there would be no war, poverty, disease, hate.

I am going to write my Declaration of Independence on a peace globe.
I wouldn’t mind being taxed on pencil skirts but I highly resent being taxed on pencils. I said that didn't I?

When I was younger I was free to run amok in the Kingdom of Bloggingham but now that I’m older I prefer to run amok in the Kingdom of Bloggingham.

I declare myself free from the destructive habit of throwing people in the dungeon.

I declare myself joyfully addicted to blogging !!! (and omelets)

I don’t think the world will ever be totally free of prejudice. Sadly.

With complete abandon, I free fall into love. Nice thought, eh?

In a hypothetical Superman existence, I would use my power to do good doing good.
I wickedly use my power to do evil doing evil.
If I weren’t so dependent on caffeine... I could be truly independent about caffeine.

When I need to free my thoughts from stress and worry, I dip my toe in the river of love.

I would like to freely kick ...these guys... in the seat of their hypothetical pants.

I want to drive fast on the highway every single day and pay no consequences.

I want the freedom to let my silliness run amok also and enjoy dancing barefoot in the kitchen every single day.

If I could re-write the Freedom of Information Act I would remove Homer's social security number from the public record.

I daily need the freedom to create whatever my imagination comes up with on soooo many levels with and I don't give a bamn what anybody else thinks about it. Bam!

If I had the power to throw one person in jail it would be Osama bin Laden.

If I had the power to free one person from bondage of any kind it would be anyone with an alcohol or addiction problem. It is truly a deceptive and hellacious existence.

If I could “speak truth to power“ I would say to the world "Listen up! The world's on fire, can't you see? Put down your arms before we don't have a world left to fight in."

The 3 most important freedoms I have in my life are: Once I started really thinking about this answer I realized there are so many freedoms I take for granted each day. The freedom to live in a country without war, freedom of speech (to write on this public page what I choose) freedom to be myself without apology, freedom to begin each new day with a clean slate, freedom to worship as I choose.... many many more.

My favorite freedom song is "Think" aka the Freedom song by Aretha Franklin.
I know. Whimsy. But fun.
And totally danceable.
It is now, Homer.

Now, present your work to the Blogosphere and sign it. I choose bloggers Jamie (Duward Discussion) and Travis (Trav's Thoughts) and Vinny Marini (The Big Leather Couch) to sign my Bloggers Declaration of Independence as witnesses. They will hold me accountable and share in my debauchery lofty ideals.

Now go forth and be free, my children.
Let's dance with Aretha ala Jennifer Hudson.

So, ummm where do I sign? Is that all I need to do?

The Gal Herself said...

Does this mean that I no longer have to fear the dungeon, even though I blew off the last question?

Love the choice of Jennifer Hudson. I included the first "Freedom" song that came to my mind, and it's (at best) a guilty pleasure.

Happy Summer Meme, my Queen!

Vinny - Yes, you are done. Wasn't that easy?

Gal - I shall see about that, Missy, I shall see!

Hudson is great.

Dancing barefoot in the kitchen is a must. I agree :)

And the freedoms that we have, that we often forget about, are very significant. I think there are other freedoms that I have that others do not in my own country, and that too makes me sad. (being able to have my marriage recognised by law is one thing).

Whoohooo. You're a fun free lady. :)

bazza said...

Mimi you are so...I don't know what. American. That's it; you are so American and you show the best of America to the world. Good on you!

Mimi Lenox said...

Xmichra - Some of my best dates have been doing just that.

Lisa - I try...

Bazza - LOL. I think you are speechless. American? Why, of course I'm American. Silly Bazza.

Do you have to be able to read my signature to make it official? I tend to scribble when I sign my name. You can make out the T and maybe the C, but not much else.

If it has to be legible, then can I block print? I'm much better at that.

Oh, but I block print in all capitals. Is that OK?

Gosh...this is harder than I thought. But I'm behind you!
