Mimi In A Minute #23 ~ Scrambled Legs and Belly Watchers

These things keep me up at night. They give me a headache.
I just need sixty seconds of your time to unclog my pencil brain so that I can get some sleep. Do you mind?
I have a few things to say. This is Mimi unplugged.
Hide your children.

Floods in Pakistan, memories in New Orleans this week and hurricanes headed for the Atlantic. The news is catastrophically on cue.
To the papparazzi belly watchers of the world:

OK. Stop. Please. We all know now. "Mimi" aka Mariah Carey is pregnant. Mimi is not. Readers! Please! Stop emailing me to inquire on the state of my gestation. Can a Queen have no privacy?




To all the Egg Inspectors of the world:

If you'd had the same gestation paparazzi inspecting your eggs as have been inspecting Mariah's, I could have had an omelet by now.

Readers! Stop emailing me about the state of my digestion. I'm fine!
Grumpy. But fine.




John Kennedy, Jr.

I miss you. Eleven years ago
I was in a workshop when I heard the news. We waited and watched the water. Kennedy was killed in a plane crash along with his wife and sister-in-law on July 16, 1999.

Seems like yesterday.

To Sir Paul McCartney: Thank you for writing "Yesterday" (which, btw, came to him in a dream) even though the original working title was "Scrambled Eggs." Rolling Stone Magazine has named it the No. 1 Beatles song of all time. The opening verse to McCartney's "Yesterday" was "Scrambled Eggs/Oh, my baby how I love your legs"

I'm so glad it was just a yoke.

Facebook is blaming Teachbook for "blatantly" stealing its name in an attempt to launch a website for teachers this fall. Teachbook has accused Facebook of bullying them.
The teachers website has all of 47 users online.

I consider that a grave threat.

All of you! To the Principal's office right now!


Pfffft! I thought it was quite nervy of Mariah to use my Mimi name on her Adventures of Mimi tour in 2006. I made a video just for her.

Whew! I feel better. Thanks for listening.
Sixty seconds flew by. I think my blogsomnia is cured.
Lights out.

I'm suddenly craving ice cream.

Everyday Goddess said...

excellent observations!

but Mariah? preggers? i don't watch the right news shows...or read the right blogs.

Jamie said...

Queen Mimi under the weather? Say it isn't so, bring on the jugglers and jongleurs. Her majesty must be amused while delicately languishing.

Jay said...

Mariah really is pregnant? I thought that was just another plea for attention. Hmm .. Guess I owe her an apology. I call her and tell her I'm sorry.

There was a big sign in our local Walmart guaranteeing us that their eggs were safe. I didn't believe them and passed on them this week.

Charles Gramlich said...

I actually did not know she was pregnant. whooo hoo.

coopernicus said...

at least ur not craving pickles...i mean being preggers and all....

The Gal Herself said...

Somehow I feel the need to tie JFK Jr back to eggs ... and, being the world class Jackie-phile, I can! The family's cook, Marta Sgubin, wrote that while the women of the household were more adventurous eaters, John like plainer foods. Especially Marta's scrambled eggs. He asked her to whip up a batch to welcome Carolyn to the family.

There. Thank you. Here I thought I'd carried such trivia in my head for no good purpose, but I got to use it in the service of my Queen!

Vinny "Bond" Marini said...

Wait, Mariah tainted the eggs and got pregnant? I am comfuzzled

Jean-Luc Picard said...

What is a mariah carey?

Karen Wallace said...

Are you always this interesting in the middle of the night? Warmly, Karen

Mimi Lenox said...

Red - I love having breakfast for dinner. With lots of cheese. And sometimes (most times) I just brew a pot of coffee to have the aroma floating around in the house. I'll drink one cup or two out of an entire pot. But seriously, it doesn't perk right if you just try to make a couple of cups at a time.

Mimi Lenox said...

EG - I don't know how you have missed it!

Mimi Lenox said...

Jamie - I must practice my delicate languish. Sounds positively sinful. I think I like it.

Mimi Lenox said...

Jay- When you call, don't forget to mention that I am suing her.

Signed,
The Original Mimi

Mimi Lenox said...

Charles - I believe this is true. Yes. And remember, you heard it here first.

Mimi Lenox said...

Coopernicus - I am not pregnant!!! Vicious rumors they are...

Mimi Lenox said...

Gal - I bow to you and your knowledge. I had no idea. Fascinating. And sweet of him, no?

Mimi Lenox said...

Vinny - No, I don't believe that is what I said. But it does tend to flow into one story, doesn't it?

Just don't put all your eggs in one basket. I tried so hard to include that phrase in this post but alas, I could not.

Mimi Lenox said...

Jean-Luc - Tell me you are kidding, Captain. You have been on that ship too long.

Mimi Lenox said...

Karen - Usually more.
I sleepwalk.

Jamie said...

Lean back in Chaise Lounge, back of hand gently pressed to fevered brow, your tiny foot wearing mule with maraboo pom pom touches the floor as satin dressing gown partially falls open revealing the somewhat wicked peignoir beneath ... Languishing 101

Mimi Lenox said...

Satin dressing gown...oooo...I like...

Finding Pam said...

Mimi, you clever girl. I miss John Kennedy too. THe things that go through your head at night are amazing. Now go get some sleep.

Mimi Lenox said...

Pam - I need to go find your peace globe. Will write soon.

The things that go through my head at night are CRAZY!! LOL
