This is Why Queen Elizabeth Hates Me

Welcome to The Queen's Meme #44 ~
The Firsts Meme
(a totally random and useless meme about firsts)

1. When you looked at yourself in the mirror today, what was the first thing you thought?
Oh darn. My crown fell off in my sleep again.

2. Where did you go on the very first vacation of your life?
England. Buckingham Palace. I was schooled at a very young age in the ways and wiles of Internet Queendom.
And then Queen Elizabeth threw me out.

3. Open the door of your refrigerator. What is the first thing you see?
A mess and baby boy's hand in the green jello. It's his favorite color.
This is why the Queen threw me out. She said I had no manners.

4. Tell us about your first kiss OR your last first date.

My first kiss involved a closet and a spin the bottle game. He was 12.
And very hot. (There was no fan in the closet)

My last first date was wonderful, btw. Check out kisser #4.

5. If you had wings to fly about the universe, where is the first place you'd land?

Morocco. I want to stay in Maryam's Peacock Pavilions in Marrakesh for awhile.

6. What is the first thing you do when you get in your car?
Adjust the makeup mirror

7. What is the first thing you ever said to your firstborn?
I love you

8. What is the last thing you heard about your first love?
That he's still in the closet. Think about it....

9. If you had created the world in seven days yourself, what would you have created on the First Day?

10. What is the first song in your IPOD or song list?
McLachlan's Laws of Illusion

11. What is the first tangible thing you lost that you could never find again?
A ring my grandfather gave me. I was at the beach and it fell in the sand.
Never found it. I cried. A lot. I still look every time I go to the beach.

12. Who is your favorite First Lady of all time?
Jacqueline Kennedy.
Hands down.

13. Post a link to your first blog post.
Today is blog post #2,288. The first one was completely benign and has no comments. Based on its riveting content, I can see why.

14. When was the last time you needed First Aid?
A couple days ago I cut my finger on a can lid attempting to cook. That was my first mistake. I decided it was a sign from God that I should stay out of the kitchen.

15. Can you explain what a first down is in football?
Of course I can. Do you think I graduated from Queen School yesterday? It's when a bunch of men in tight suits fall down on top of each other in a pile of testosterone to catch a football (why they don't grab it in the air is beyond me) and the first man down on top of the man on top of the ball calls him a First Down and other unmentionable names. It's sort of like the Marco Polo game in the pool - with no water - and more broken bones. I told you I'm a Queen.

And besides, the men in matching suits at Buckingham Palace never fall down into a pile. They march in funny directions, but they never fall down. See?

#8 made me laugh!

Finding Pam said...

Your interpretation of football sounds pretty funny!

Charles Gramlich said...

I'm not sure about the football really. It seems like a somewhat long explanation. But I shall refer to it that way from now on.

Sir Tom Eagerly said...

I shall be reporting to her majesty imediately (Yes, I'm back!)

coopernicus said...

is that a line of silly walks????

Akelamalu said...

You got thrown out of Buckingham Palace??? I'm going there in September, I'll ask Queen Elizabeth about it. ;)

Mimi Lenox said...

Jean-Luc - Glad to give you a giggle today.

Pam - And accurate. Don't forget accurate!

Charles - I'm glad I could teach you something new today.

Sir Tom - I knew you were a spy!!

Coopernicus - Wonder how long they have to practice to do it just like that?

Akelamalu - You are NOT!! You are NOT!!! Traitor!!
(Don't tell her, K?)
Remember, I'll be hiding in your suitcase.

the kitchen is a dangerous place!

dang..I am not the first commenter, so I have nothing to say

Travis Cody said...

You know I just can't let it pass.

First down in football begins an offensive possession. When an offensive team advances the ball from the line of scrimmage and gains at least 10 yards, they are awarded a fresh set of downs, beginning with first down. The offensive team then has at least 3 downs to make another 10 yards to maintain possession of the ball. The offense proceeds in this fashion until they score points or do not make a first down. If they reach 3rd down and have not gained the necessary 10 yards, they may elect to go for it on 4th down, or punt the ball to the other team.

But you get points for using a photo from an Army vs Navy game.

The Gal Herself said...

Please tell me your first love wasn't Barry Manilow!

Were you and Baby Boy experimenting with edible artwork when he made that handprint?

Mimi Lenox said...

Gary - So you've said! I will try to be more careful.

Vinny - Wise guy.

Trav - Taking notes....Wait. They were Army Navy??!

Gal - Manilow? Hardly. Though I still have my manilow piano solo book and can play "Mandy" with the best of 'em.

The jello....something like that.
