Doing The Hokey Pokey with Abraham Lincoln

Keeping up with the blog makes me feel like my old self again. I've posted more in the past month than I have all year. It feels good. Remembering why I started blogging in the first place and the friends I made along the way is a good place to be.
I'm not sure I'll ever do memes on a regular basis again but this page could definitely use some humor. As of late I've written tooooo many serious posts. I'll take a meme from that silly girl named Mimi Queen of Memes from way back in the day and give it a groovy go.
This one is called The Hokey Pokey Meme. It was written April 29, 2011.

Welcome To The Queen's Meme
7 Royal Questions on a Saturday

Sometimes strange and silly questions run through my pencil brain. Don't try to look for connections. There are none. Just have fun answering a non-serious set of 7 royal questions. We would really appreciate a photograph as evidence for question #6. Please feel free to play this meme on your own blog or social media.

1. Who should run for United States President in 2016?
Abraham Lincoln. He was a lot smarter than either current candidate and we wouldn't have to fact-check everything he said. I'd like a do-over this year. I'm hoping the tide will soon turn. I'm trying to be optimistic but this election season is just dismal.  

2. Have you ever gone to a party and snooped in the medicine cabinet?

No. But I've gone to the medicine cabinet and snooped a party. Does that make sense, Bloggy People? I didn't think so. Good! Eureka! I think I'm getting my meme legs back.

3. Why are Happy Meals Happy?

They're not. The only thing happy about Happy Meals is the chi-ching sound of the cash register as another foolish customer pays a whopper for plastic food. McDonalds gets rich and our kids get sick.
They've eaten so much plastic chemical food over the years we'll soon have to recycle our own children. 

4. Have you ever done the Hokey Pokey?
 I hate the Hokey Pokey. I'm done with the Hokey Pokey. Somebody always gets hurt turning themselves around. Usually me. I forget which direction I'm going and fall down gracefully. 

That's what it's all about.

5. What song sticks in your head and drives you crazy?
"Let It Go" from Frozen. Nobody knows any of the other words when they sing it. Just those three. 

6. Do you dance like a  lunatic around the house when no one is looking?
Does a tree dance in the forest when no one is there?
Here's your sign.

7. Have you ever been involved in a food fight?
Last week with  Baby Beans. He started throwing popcorn at me and it was on.

That's it for my meme today. Have a lovely Saturday.
Be good to each other.

I'm not sure what one does with a meme post; are we meant to answer the questions ourselves?
I can say that I just saw the Lincoln movie with Daniel Day-Lewis and really enjoyed it. He was a true 'great'.

Yes Bazza! Copy the questions on your own blog and answer them. Then you can tag others or just leave the link here so that we can read your responses. I would love for you to do this meme. Yay!

I've posted over on my blog. I'm so glad the Queen is back!! And I do hope things have settled down for you since Thursday!

Mimi Lenox said...

Cat! So good to see you here. I know we cross paths on Facebook sometimes but the blog is beginning to feel like my blog again, especially with friends from the past showing up.
Thanks for doing the meme.

Yes, Wednesday and Thursday especially were quite stressful. Things settled down and now I'm going back to work next week so it's back to the fast-paced craziness for awhile. But I'm determined to keep up with the blog.

I shall comment on your meme wisdom shortly. Yay!

Stacey Schneller said...

Glad to see another fun Meme to play. Thanks for the fun questions. I answered them overat my blog. I hope you have a great weekend.

Mimi Lenox said...

Good to see you Stacy. Glad you enjoyed the meme. I will be over to read. Please come back and play again.

I answered without having read your answers first. Gulp. I'm afraid we don't completely agree. Forgive me, your highness! (I also somehow lost #7.)

Mimi Lenox said...

Gal - We don't have to agree. What a boring friendship if we agreed on everything. But I don't think we're that different. I wanted Bernie but that ship has sailed. Philosophically, you and I have always been pretty similar. Go on with your wonderful memeing self!
