Monday Mimisms ~ I Have a Dungeon and I Know How To Use It

Just because I have a meme site of my own now doesn't mean I've given up on memeing here all together. After all, my name is mmmmeeeeeemi. Sort of. I didn't plan it that way. It just sort of happened. Isn't that the way life goes? What happened to the good ole' days when I stood on my pointy crown and issued an edict from the rooftops of Bloggingham Palace. It was heard far and wide across oceans and valleys and blills in the blogosphere. Every blogger within the sound of my voice hurried to smack me answer questions wrought forth (I always wanted to say wrought forth. It makes no sense but it was fun to say) anyway....yeah...scary questions from moi-who-has-a dungeon are long overdue much like my library books but I digress.

Now I know you've all heard about this dungeon of mine. Some have even seen it and lived to tell. But that's not the point. I know how to bury those bodies. And don't think you can hide behind that get-out-of-the-dungeon-free card I issued way back when I didn't have any sense one day and get out of this meme. I'm talking to you, Dawn! And you...and you....and even you!

So bear with me while I think of a mean mean meme and do it right here on the page. The chicken's way would be to say "I tag everyone". Bah! You think that's a serious memer?! Ha! I'm taking names and kicking blass (that's blog + a** for all you non-blog speakers) I can't believe I said that. You will most likely find your name at the end of this post marked TAGGED.
Read it and weep.
Or else.
The UnValentine Grumpy Meme

1. I, Mimi Pencil Skirt Peace Woman, have officially declared war on Valentine's Day. If I see one more chocolate rose covered in stupid red tin foil paper I'm gonna have a fit. What did you get for Valentine's Day?

A chocolate rose covered in stupid red tin foil paper. I was not amused.

2. What will you miss most about Valentine's Day?
The almost-love-of-my-life. Cue violins.

3. What could you have done differently yesterday to make the day sweeter?

I could have graciously accepted the well-intended tin foil chocolate without the remark that cost me my boyfriend. We'd only met 24 hrs earlier, so really, maybe I should cut him some slack.

4. How many roses make a dozen?
Men need to understand this. Women want flowers. Flowers that smell. Flowers you can water. Flowers that come from a florist. Flowers that can be delivered to our door or workplace with much ado and fanfare. Flowers you can show off to your ex-boyfriends. Flowers to make your girlfriends jealous. Flowers that say "I care enough to spend take out a 2nd mortgage for this bundle of love, my love." We do not want to eat tin foil.

5. You and your love are getting matching tattoos for Valentine's Day. What will they be?
Mine will be a puppy. His will be a doghouse.

6. My kingdom for a man who can spell. I am so tired of getting text messages from college educated 45 yr old men like .....I miss u ....wat up?.... B there by 8... or the ever popular U home? Does your significant other have an annoying cute little habit you'd like to break?
Nope. I just change my number. The phone company now answers my calls with
"What did he do this time?"

What did you get someone for Valentine's Day?
He asked for a red teddy.
That is exactly what he got. He needs to be more specific next time.
So far, we are two very unamused people.

8. No one is looking. I promise.
Write one word on this candy heart you've been dying to say to a romantic connection from your past. I will not tell.

My answer? That IS my answer. I know not what to say.

9. Be a poet. Write a 4-line poem starting with Roses are red....

Roses are red
Stuffed in a vase
But mine are melting
all over my face!!
(don't stop me I'm on a roll)
If you should die
before I wake
I promise to cry
but it will be fake

10. What song best describes your Valentine's Day experience this year?by The Dungeons

11. I, Mimi Grumpy Skirt, am so glad this meme is almost over. This is my final question. I made it eleven questions in honor of the 11 roses I didn't receive. Aren't they lovely? This is my final final question, Regis:
Two cupids are in a knock down drag out fight on the floor of the Senate. One is a constituent from Venus, the other from Mars.
What is the name of the legislation they are fighting over?

Same Cherub marriage of course.

P.S. The chocolate was messy
The sentiment real
I promise to forgive him
If this meme you steal.
So take this tag
and away you go

You won't be thrown into
the dungeon below!

**This will be the Queen's Meme for Tuesday as well**
Now for the fun part.... Oh ye little Dungeon Dodgers you. I, Mimi Queen of Memes, do royally tag Ferd, Vodka Mom, Summer, Lizza, Starr, Jean-Luc, Linda, Bond, Ciara, Tulip, Eric, Bee, Travis, Melissa, Eyre, Lee, Bobby, Anndi, Mo, Desert, Shannon, Cogitator, Katherine, Ciara, Lois, Jamie, Kitten, Gal, Gary, Mielikki, Charles, Dawn, Cat, Jennifer, Brigit, Melissa, Angelia, Maria, Kwizgiver, Coopernicus, BPD, Allie, Lime, Dixie, Pink Lady, Nessa, Akelamalu, Stef,
Mouse, Sandy, Mommy Cara, Wendy,
Xmichra, Debbie, 800 FB friends and a partridge in a pear tree.

Can someone say St. Patrick's Day? They don't make green tin foil roses do they.....

Linda said...

Oh deareth, it appeareth that I haveth been taggeth! Forsooth and gads!

Considering that my back has been giving me nay but fits lately due to the whacked-out winter weather, I'd best do this meme as I think a turn in the dungeon would really do me in. Unless, of course, you wanted to put me on the rack for a little while to try to get the kinks out! Then it might be worth a trip down to the dungeon.

Ah well, let me work on this though I have to warn you it burns my fingers to type the words "Valentine's Day". Ow!!! See, it just happened! Alas, an edict is an edict is a command ...

Ferd said...

I don't get it. What can anyone possibly have against chocolate roses? Women are a mystery!

Funny meme, Mimi!

I played on my site!


Linda said...

As decreed, I have completed the meme so fully expect dungeon-amnesty! Feel free to click here to see!

Vinny "Bond" Marini said...

1) a nice card and some lottery tickets (no winners, but I sure am!)

2) What? It is over?

3) was perfect

4) I do not do dozens...I do odd numbers of different colors

5) i don't do tats

6) she hits me when she wants my attention..i do sorta like it though

6) a little teddybear and two cards

7) I am taken

8)roses are red
and other colors too
when we're together
anything will do

10) Forever my girl

So there...anyone needing a break out from the dungeon..just give me a call

Speedcat Hollydale said...

.... everyone is CHEATING!

Xmichra said...

i will go and post, since i made it into the dungeon last wekk and am *NOT* impressed (with my computer of course, I am totally impressed with her majesty.. )

Speedcat Hollydale said...

HERE is how to do a meme ...

The rest of you? ~ tsk tsk

I re-tagged EVERYONE too


heheee, Happy Valentine

Mimi Lenox said...

Coopernicus - The Post-It notes and honey cracked me up!

Mimi Lenox said...

Mimi/Bobby/Mimi - It's hard for me to look at a picture of a man and remember you're a girl.

How do you annoy me? Very funny.

Mimi Lenox said...

VodkaMom - Listen, Teach! Pay attention in class. I'm ashamed of you!!!

Mimi Lenox said...

Linda - It burns my fingers to type the word as well. Although I did have a lovely dance on Facebook yesterday. That was indeed very nice.

Your meme was stellar as usual!
You are free from the dungeon.

For now.

Mimi Lenox said...

Ferd - I shall read forsooth (as Duchess Linda saideth)

I was just funnin' about the chocolate roses ya know.
But I do hate the tin foil wrapping.

Mimi Lenox said...

Vinny Bond Bee! - And I was enjoying your lovely Valentine rhyme until you spoiled it with a mutiny plan. You're in the dungeon again, Buster!!!

Mimi Lenox said...

Eric - You can say that again!

Mimi Lenox said...

Xmichra - I'm glad you're back online. I'll come over and read. As I said over at my other house, I'm getting used to your company.

Mimi Lenox said...

Eric - That'll teach 'em!

j said...

I accept your tag and have posted the meme my Queen.

My husband doesn't get the "rose thing". He has even bought me house plants because they aren't dead like cut roses. Such irony - my black thumb always takes them out.

An Eerie Tapestry said...

Good meme this week, though sorry you had a bad Valentine's Day. Guess that saying about it being the thought that counts doesn't apply on Valentine's Day (assuming there was some thought involved). Thought your poems were great.

Vinny "Bond" Marini said...

catch me

Durward Discussion said...

Ha Ha! Escaped your clutches one more time ... of course this involved obeying your every whim, but what the heck? Mine's up.

mielikki said...

I am so going to the dungeon, aren't I?
Mine is up. Yes I got real flowers this year. But I had to practically TELL him to go get them for me. I promise he didn't think of it by himself....

Mimi Lenox said...

Jennifer - You don't seem like the black thumb type but I'll take your word for it. Hubby tried! That is what counts.

I shall be by.

Mimi Lenox said...

Eerie - Thank you. It wasn't that bad. But I must say for single people it is no fun seeing all the hoopla for 2 weeks before on TV and everywhere you turn.

But I'm so happy for those who've managed to make it work - even with the long distance factor!- as you and Lyn have. Good on you.

Nice to see love a'bloomin in the blogosphere.

Mimi Lenox said...

Vinny - You! I will have none of this mutiny. Stop it right now.

Mimi Lenox said...

Jamie - Ha! You are always a hoot!! Love it.
But I might have to throw you in the dungeon just cause you'd be so much fun to tease. Bwaaahaaahaaaa

Mimi Lenox said...

Mielikki - You're already there, dear. Go look at the ticker.

mielikki said...

yeah I kind of figured. I maintain that the tulips are worth a trip to the dungeon. As a matter of fact, they are part of my Wordless Wednesday tomorrow...

Mimi Lenox said...

I hope you like it here.
Tulips. crack me up.

Durward Discussion said...

Should you deign to come visit my humble abode, I think you will like the name of the legislation causing conflict between the Venus and Mars cherubs

Mimi Lenox said...

Jamie - I did. It was crazy funny!

Lizza said...

I am never getting out of the dungeon, it seems. *sigh*

What's for dinner?

(Your poem really made me LOL, by the way)
