Monday Mimisms with Mimi Queen of Memes ~ I'm All Googly

This meme is not for the fainthearted.

I was challenged by Kathleen Maher who writes the wonderful blog Diary of A Heretic to pass along a meme in which you Google yourself - in IMAGES.

It ain't pretty, folks.

Do you think she's kin to The Blog Fairy?
Every membership thingy I ever joined is there. Who KNEW??! Every snippet of my face, the right side, the left side, the middle and the missing is there in googly pixel for all to see.. Who knew?!! (trying not to hyperventilate) When I typed in "Mimi Lenox" I expected to get dishes and dead Queens. Instead I got....well.....ME!


This is a time to be thankful. Let us give thanks that we had the good common sense not to snap those "romantically induced portraits" with shutter-happy ex-boyfriends. (hyperventilating!)

Except in my case, my real ex-boyfriend's picture is on Mimi Lenox's google image search page.
The price of blog fame.
I got google-bumps just looking. It was scary!

Kathleen dear - I now need medication.
The good news is I found lots of peace globes right off the bat linked to my name - some I'd never seen before. The bad news is everything I ever joined online is there including this awful Spicy Page photo that got too close to the zoom lens that wasn't supposed to get posted to their site (hyperventilating again....) and they have me listed as living in Utah.

I must have been in an incognito frame of mind.

Then there is my profile on, BlogWoods (I forgot about them), a comment I made on Craig Newmar's site trying to get his attention for a peace globe post. You know, THE CRAIG of
Craig's list? He paid me no-never-mind. Sigh. And I ended up with the silly comment listed in Google images. Who KNEW??! But never let it be said that I shy away from brazen requests in my search for world peace. I'm working now on a plea asking President Bush to post a peace globe in November. I'm sure he has a blog somewhere. He only has 14 months left in the White House. Don't you think he'd like to do something of significance??!!

But back to my embarrassing past.
On the first page there were five references to BlogBlast for Peace, a nomination for Bestest Blogging Awards, Lenox china pictures and Lenox the horse's head.

Thank goodness is was that end of the horse. And a link to a blog I forgot I created. Also found was a fine collection of blog friends' sites (that means YOU) that I've visited or who've written about me.
Typing "Mimi Pencil Skirt" found a zillion pencil skirts

and nice shoes to match. Why go shopping? Just stop in at the Google page and have a look. There was also a snapshot of my very first Blogger page for Mimi Writes - the one that came over on the Ark.
I was green then. And my photo was yellow tinted. But not on purpose like it is now. Ahhhah.... those were the days. No widget trouble. No link problems. I had no widgets or links. Just jaundiced photographs.

I decided to google "Peace globes" in images. It was wonderful! Until I saw this! "Return of the Peace Globes" was posted by
The Moving (Middle) Finger Writes. . in my dear friend Prometheus' blog.
Then I googled BlogBlast For Peace. Look!

I was satisfied and ready to stop this narcissistic nonsense when I decided to google Mimi Queen of Memes. Bad idea. I should have shut down my computer when I found those lovely peace globes. Let me put it this way.....One of the many faults I have is the inability to surrender.

Behold The White Queen!
I only look like this before my morning coffee.

And she thinks she's a Queen. Do you see any peace globes on her? Huh? Huh? And who is she fooling with that fake hair? HATE the latex nail polish.

I found The
Sea Food Queen shown above. She looks like The Blog Fairy's sister.
And there's Icon Queen of Heaven below.
Uh huh. Likely story.

Nobody knows I'm a Queen!!!
Do you see a Mimi Queen of Memes anywhere?

But I didn't sit down and cry until I saw this:

A Java Queen? I've been beat out by a coffee cup?
Believe it or not, it's Queen O'Java.

Nobody knows I'm a Queen. Nobody.

Stop laughing, Sanni. It's not blunny.
This was depressing. Thanks, Kathleen!

If you'd like to be agitated on this fine Monday morning just follow these rules.
1) Go to 2) Click on Google images 3) Type in your name and search 4) Repost (with a link) the picture of th e oddest, craziest, strangest, coolest, oldest, etc. person that shares your name. Post multiples if you find a few you like. 5) Have fun with it and pass it on.
This is Mimi Pencil Skirt reporting from the lovely land of memes aka Mimi Queen of Memes - That's right! I said MIMI QUEEN OF MEMES!!

The one and only. The humble. The meek. The mild.
The google-less.

Everyone knows you're the QUEEN MIMI!!!

Diesel said...

The White Queen looks a little too much like Maria Shriver for my tastes. Above the shoulders, anyway.

Deana said...

Wow you're good. Really good! At blogging and so forth. I can see I am going to enjoy spending more time here! Cool Images and I like the fact that you are so for peace!

Mimi Lenox said...

Akelamalu - YOU know I'm the Queen and I know I'm the Queen but does the entire free world know I'm the Queen?
Off with their heads!!

Just kidding. I'm a peaceful dictator.

Mimi Lenox said...

Diesel - FUNNY.
Deana - Welcome to Bloggingham Palace. Do you have a peace globe? Just write and I will help you with it.

Skittles said...

I think I saw a couple of.. globes.. on that one queen. :)

Linda said...

Okay, the problem as I see it is that you need to have yourself photographed wearing a sensible suit with matching hat and purse. Then you can be considered a real Queen as those are types of pictures I got when I googled Queen Elizabeth for my post on her purse and the contents therein. Also, you need to perfect the half-wave that all royalty uses and then I am positive that your picture shall show up in Google as "Mimi Queen of Memes arrives to the delight of her thousands of royal subjects" or something equally regal-like!

By the by, I thought the horse was lovely!

Sanni said...

I. can´t. breathe.

Okay, I´ll stop laughing immediately. Okay, I´ll try to stop laughing... soon.

Okay, by the way: Here´s your newest award, Queen Mimi. Very well deserved - that´s for sure. It says: "You make me smile" and I roared with laughter while delivering it.

Empress Bee (of the High Sea) said...

well for heaven's sake mimi dear, of COURSE you are the queen, well ALL know this. do not fret...

smiles, bee

crazy working mom said...

It's always fun to see your name on google isn't it?!

Patti said...

Yes, we all know you are the queen. Not to worry, Mimi the Meek.
Hey, that's not a bad nickname for you.

The humility I sense when reading your posts is nearly overwhelming.

Patti said...

I guess I just left a comment tomorrow. Is that considered back to the future or what? I am confused.

It is still Monday, Sept. 3

Jamie said...

Those thigh high boots as a fashion statement will add a bit of dominatrix to the pencil skirt. Now I took a peak at my name and found HER. This may be a trade to my advantage, but I'm not sure how to explain the everywhere "lift" to the grandchildren.

Queenie said...

I have the same problem, I blame my father!!!!
You are a a queen and I'm sure everyone knows now, so rest your royal mind and have the butler/maid run you a bath with bubbles up to your majestic neck..

Odat said...

That's wild!!! I'm going to try

Terra Shield said...

I have a strong feeling that Mimi- Queen of Memes is gonna be googleable after this... :D

kathleenmaher said...

Mimi, Didn't I predict you'd be the most interesting Mimi in the entire Google world?
No one can match you.
