Sunday Stealing ~ The Devil In Duke Chapel

This is Mimi. Shooting straight. Don't worry....I haven't taken any pain meds in at least four hours and I won't be talking about Viagra or elephants. Maybe. Scratch that. This is Mimi.
Shooting straight.

I'd duck if I were you.

Sunday Stealing: The Ginormous Meme

1. Are you single?
Let me look at my watch.
As of 1:00 am, yes, I am still single.
And sleepy.

2. Are your parents still married?
52 years and still going insane strong.

3. Are you in love?
With life. With peace globes. With buttercups. With Baby Boy. And in my mind - with the man who will join me in the buttercup peace globe journey. Where he is, is anybody's guess. (Baby Boy will be jealous but he'll have to get over it.)

4. Do you believe in love at first sight?
No. I believe in pheromones at first sight.
I believe in charm at first bite.
After that, it gets a bit more complicated.

5. Who ended your last relationship?
He did. He's a bit complicated.
Just ask him.

6. Have you ever been hurt by a break up?

7. Have you ever broken someone’s heart?
Men rarely admit to broken hearts but I'm afraid I have.
I didn't want to though.

8. Have you ever had a secret admirer?
I believe so. But I prefer directness. Secrets not so much.
9. Prefer love or lust?
I prefer lust in the midst of love.
You can have one without the other of course - many people do - but it is not the ultimate mind-blowing relationship. Toe-curling desire and attraction can go hand-in-hand with sweet affection and caring. Who wouldn't want THAT?
I want trustworthy intimacy, rock solid friendship, and a mature love that I can count on from ONE man.
Oh. And hot sex.
(I told you to duck.)

10. Prefer a few best friends or many regular friends?

11. Wild night out or romantic night in?
See #9

12. Back in the day: Been caught sneaking out?
Are you kidding? I can't get by with anything. I wouldn't have taken one step out the door without alarm bells going off. You're talking to a woman who had to be home at 9 pm on Sunday nights and 11:00 pm on Fri/Sat nights when she was a teenager, had to wear a dress on Sundays "just because it's Sunday", is always the designated driver and was afraid to take the tags off the mattress for fear of being arrested.
I think not.

13. Ever wanted something/someone so badly it hurt?
Now that's alarming. Wouldn't that border on obsession? If it "hurts" you shouldn't want it. RED FLAG APPROACHING YOUR PSYCHE. See the nearest therapist.
14. Who are/is your best friend(s)?
Female: Barbara (see this post) who is, at this moment, fighting for her life. Please say a prayer. Susie aka Jane (no she doesn't have a multiple personality)
Male: Prince Budwick of Rakistan and Mark of the Millennium.

15. Ever wanted to disappear?
Only a million times a day. Lately, I've been wary of crowds -a little jumpy since I was injured a few weeks ago. Perhaps I should learn to levitate.

16. First attraction: Smile or eyes
Smile. Eyes. Smile. Eyes.

I can't decide. 

17. Prefer intelligence or attraction?
I prefer attractive intelligence. Brains are a huge huge huge turn on. So are tight jeans, a well-dressed man and sweaty workout clothes - not necessarily in that order - and a sense of humor.
Am I being too picky?

18. Last phone call you received?

True story: My sister calling to see if my mother had called me yet to tell me about my uncle who passed away three weeks ago. The answer is still 'no.' I kid you not.
Of course, they're not going to do the funeral over just for me. I can't imagine why.


19. Last thing you drank?
Green tea

20. Before your current one, when was your last relationship?
Ummmm......Why am I thinking purple peeps at Easter? I don't have a current one but the last relationship had more births, deat
hs and resurrections than Jesus. I'll pass.

21. Do you and
your family get along?
Usually at funerals. But I missed the last one.

So, that's a no.

22.Would you say you have a "screwed up life"?
Not unless you count falling down a lot.

23. Have you ever gotten kicked out somewhere? If yes, do tell.

I was politely asked to leave Duke Chapel once during a concert but it wasn't my fault, I swear!. My friend caused a scene (her husband was onstage singing "Messiah" for Heaven's sakes but I don't think Handel was smiling at this..) and there was a "problem" with a seating arrangement. We were in the second row. I happened to be wearing a flaming red dress - that fit me perfectly I might add - down front for God and everybody to see and hear this ridiculous conversation which I had no part of. I just happened to be sitting with Patti Picky aka The Diva. Had she not been driving and we hadn't been so far from home, I would have ditched her royal rudeness and rode home with a baritone in the choir. Had I thought of that then, the answer to number #1 of this meme might be different.

And to think I wasted a perfectly good red dress. Oh the glamour. Oh the shame.

24. Do you trust all your friends?
Not with my seat or my boyfriends.

25. Who knows the most about you?
My best friend Barbie of nearly 30 years. She knows the dirt. Oh yeah.
But I know hers too. We just sweep and move on.
Somebody pass the broom.

My uncle had a great sense of humor.
I hope he's laughing at this meme.
Goodnite Uncle Frank.

P.S. I cross my fingers heart that I wouldn't have worn that dress
to your funeral.

Kitten said...

I loved your answers to #12. We have a lot in common, Mimi. Just for one day I'd love to learn what it's like to be the Bad Girl...

Akelamalu said...

You always give such interesting answers to these memes Mimi! :)

Going Like Sixty said...

That's cool that your parents are 52 years into their lifetime sentence. Insane is cool for a marriage.

Cinnamon Girl said...

I got kicked out of Girl Scouts =) Really!

Mimi Lenox said...

Kitten - I hear it's not all it's cracked up to be.....what am I saying?!! I can be bad.


Mimi Lenox said...

Akelamalu - Is that a yes or a no? Smile.

Mimi Lenox said...

60 - "Lifetime sentence" - ha! - definitely needs insanity in the mix.

Mimi Lenox said...

Starr - I read that somewhere, yes. Oh. Right. It was on your blog. Pray tell,what did you do?

I know. You didn't sell enough cookies. Nope. Can't be. You're a fundraising marvel. What was WRONG with those people?

Seriously. Who wants to be a Girl Scout anyway? I never was. But I did go to 4-H Camp one summer. The subject was Cooking 101.

I failed.

Cinnamon Girl said...

Well I hated all the girls in my troop. They were all the Pops (popular girls) as we called them. I hated the fawning troop leader. And I am just not a joiner. So when asked for a campfire song, I chose song 4 from the Hair Soundtrack. It's a charming little ditty called Sodomy ;)

Mimi Lenox said...

Starr - Ummm....I guess that would do it.

Pops are now called Preps.
Same thing.
And a "fawning" troop leader.
YUK. Gross. Enough said.

Cinnamon Girl said...

Let me quote "You girls are so bright and beautiful!"

They had the IQ's of house plants the face of horses :P

In my defense I really tried but those girls hated me (cause their boyfriends didn't I suspect) and I was tired of playing nice =)

kalea_kane said...

Reading your answewrs was an absolute blast!

Sujomi said...

Brains trump all...and brains in tight jeans and a white T-shirt which shows his muscles from sweating workouts...pure bliss!

Mojo said...

I got kicked out of Girl Scouts too.

Don't ask.

And Mimi, I'm picturing that little red dress... and it looks fabulous on you! Just magnificent.

Dawn Drover said...

had more births, deaths and resurrections than Jesus...

that cracked me up!

Great meme :D

Mimi Lenox said...

Kalea - Glad you enjoyed them. Welcome to my blog.

Mimi Lenox said...

Suzy - Brains DO trump all.

Mimi Lenox said...

Mojo - How did you know it was "little" red dress? I never said that....but it was. And I loved it. Where is that dress.....

Mimi Lenox said...

Dawn - I told I was shooting straight!

ccorkran said...

Mimi Lenox said...

Milet - Thanks for stopping in. I love doing memes.

Mimi Lenox said...

Southern (in)Sanity said...

You're right about #7. Admit it or not, it happens.

Mimi Lenox said...

Southern - We are so much more alike than we are different.

Speedcat Hollydale said...

You REALLY are the queen of memes!

4. Do you believe in love at first sight? (( you do too )) ... deep down anyway.

The hotness of this post is lighting my keyboard on fire.

Speedcat Hollydale said...

Vinny "Bond" Marini said...

John D. said...

Interesting, Queen Mimi. : )

Charles Gramlich said...

Until Lana, I don't think anyone has ever loved me enough for me to break their heart. And I'd never do that to Lana.

Mark said...

Great responses! You do keep it fun!

Mimi Lenox said...

Skywind - Why, thank you. Ummm....tell me. Are you real? Seriously now...

Mimi Lenox said...

Bond - Thank you dear friend.

Mimi Lenox said...

Eric - Deep down...mmmmaybe.
I hope you had a fire extinguisher handy!
Too funny.

Mimi Lenox said...

Eric - And you're welcome.

Mimi Lenox said...

John - I thought you might say that. (smile)

Mimi Lenox said...

Charles - I hope she reads this. Wow. The power of love.

Mimi Lenox said...

Mark - I do try. Good to see you!

Jean-Luc Picard said...

I'm sure Barbie has a few stories to tell.

katherine. said...

Mimi...the bad girl?

oh geez.

Mimi Lenox said...

Jean-luc - And her lips are sealed...

Mimi Lenox said...

P.S. Jean-luc - Interestingly enough, my word verification for that comment was NONESIN.

See how the Universe works, my friend?
I rest my case.

Mimi Lenox said...

Katherine - I can be bad.
I can be bad!!!
