Mimi In A Minute #25 ~ I'd Say We Have A Situation

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.

Scientists have now discovered that female tears cause a chemical reaction in men that makes them flee
NOW you tell me

To Vitamin D or not to Vitamin D:   It's the Sunshine Vitamin! One day it is good for you the next day it'll kill ya.  That is why I'm still crying.

To the members of Congress who sat side by side during the State of the Union Address last week:
What a simple symbolic statement of the power of INTENT. I don't care if it's hokey. I don't care if it's called "date night".  I don't even care if it's superficial. 
It was brilliant.

Here they are for a photo op just 3 days before the Arizona shootings.
Why does it take a tragedy to force an attempt at unity?

To ALL Internet Providers:
We all want an unlimited plan
See that tiny speck on the right tower? That's me trying to flip the switch. AGAIN.

Dear iPhone developers:

Please devise an app for Manners
Thank you,
Mimi Pencil Skirt

President Obama talking to Egyptian President Mubarak on the phone

I hope you have an unlimited calling plan.

Guys....I think we have a situation.

This is no time to get our wires crossed

It was required reading in the 9th grade..
Does anyone else find it Toffler-ishly surreal that the world's most serious situations are being played out on Twitter and Facebook and YouTube right before our universal eyes? 

To the Egyptian people

30 years is enough
I want to stand and cheer.

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

I just recently heard about this scientific discovery... funny - we women knew it all along.

Mimi Lenox said...

Yes we did. They should pay us the money lost on research.

Mark In Mayenne said...

Hmmm these tears that make me flee. For them to "work", do I have to just see them? (Some chemical wafts into the air?) Hear the noise of their production? Or kiss them away?

Just curious

Mimi Lenox said...

I doubt you would be the type of man to run from a woman's tears. But it happens.

Women know that tears are a sign of strength. Any man who would choose to kiss them away instead of run...well, let's just say score one for being a real man. In my humble pencil skirt opinion that is.

I'm hoping for such good things in Egypt

maybe it's time for BlogBlastForPeace: Special Edition...

and the tears thing? must be a snafu in my circuits. for me it triggers a hug mechanism...

one heart said...

Gee, I'd love a hug for every time I cried tears :-)

Here here!! I'm with you, Mimi, on every point you've expressed today!

Vinny "Bond" Marini said...

I don't I don't...

Akelamalu said...

An app for manners would be very useful for some! ;)

Karen Wallace said...

Your are so brilliant, love your posts!!1 Hugs Karen

I wonder what chemical reactions happen in a woman's brain when a man cries. Not that that ever happens, of course. ;-)

Don't you hate it when the internet connection is down for even a minute!? We are all so dependent on it now.

I love your Mimi minutes!

Mimi Lenox said...

Charles - It looks promising thus far...if the religious fanatics can stay out of the mix and not convince the Egyptians that they are the only way.

Mimi Lenox said...

Coop - A man after my own heart. Hugs!!

BlogBlast Special Edition...I have thought of that. Hmmm.

Mimi Lenox said...

OneHeart - Sometimes a hug is ALL I need. Unspoken unconditional. That's all.

Mimi Lenox said...

Vinny - No, my dear friend, you don't.

Mimi Lenox said...

Akelamalu - I know! I wish parents everywhere would enroll their kids in a Manners Class. And many adults I know....

Mimi Lenox said...

Karen - I love to see you here commenting. Thanks and especially for the hugs!

Mimi Lenox said...

Ferd - Well I can't speak for all women but when a man cries I find it very touching. I wish some men weren't afraid to cry.

Losing internet is like being bandaged in a cast from head to toe or something equally aggravating.

There is power in intent. But if it stays intent...if there is no action from the intent...then it's merely a gesture and therefore worthless.
