World Wide Meme

I stole this from Snavy.

[1.] Where was the first time you ever kissed the last person you kissed?

In the hospital when they placed him in my arms.

[2.] What’s the greatest thing that happened to you today (the day I actually filled this out)?

Being told I was loved.

[3.] What’s the number one thing that turns you on the most?

A sincere #2

[4.] Would you rather get up early or sleep in?

Do you really have to ask?

[5.] Tell me where you got each article of clothing you’re wearing?

Sweatshirt-center cabinet on my dresser, Yoga pants-bottom drawer of night stand. It's early, I haven't showered yet, hence the minimalist approach.

[6.] What’s the closest thing to you that is brown?

My eyes

[7.] What would you change about your life right now?

Probably the clothes I have on but it's laundry day and most of my stuff is dirty plus I need a shower first.

[8.] Would you rather smile over a lie or cry over the truth?

Truth, always truth

[9.] What’s on your bedroom floor right now?


[10.] Who was the last person you got into an argument with?


[11.] Do you trust people?

Depends on the people

[12.] If you could move away, no questions asked, where would you move?

Maybe a little to the left.

[13.] Have you ever been out of the country?

Have you not ever read this blog before?

[14.] Could you go a day without eating?

Oh yeah. And given what the scale says I should probably go many days without eating.

[15.] How much do looks matter to you?

Am I giving them or getting them? Are they dirty looks or flirty looks?

[17.] When was the last time you had your hair cut?

Gah! In September and the hairdresser HACKED it. I came out looking like I said, 'Listen, I have curly hair but I really don't want anyone to know I have curly hair. Please make me look as boring as possible. Take all the joy and fun out of my wild mop.' It was the kind of haircut that started my initial phobia of hairdressers. Respect the curls, man!

[18.] Would you rather be mad or sad?

Why do I have to be either?

[19.] Does it take a lot to make you cry?

It takes a lot for me to be willing to let you see or hear me cry.

[20.] What’s the best feeling in the world?

Being in the arms of a man who loves me.

[21.] Are you close with your mom?

About 90 miles

[22.] Are your parents strict?

I'm 39 years old for crying out loud, what are they going to do? Ground me?

[23.] Do you tell your parents everything?


[24.] Would you rather be a bird or a fish?


[25.] Name fears you have….?

Herbert, Cuthbert, Griselda, Bertine....I figured I'd give them names I don't like very much.

[26.] If you need to go to the store a block away, do you walk or drive?

Why on earth would I drive???

[27.] Does the thought of marriage scare you?

Depends upon the marriage.

[28.] How many kids do you want?

You mean more than the 3 I have now?

[29.] What’s your favourite colour to wear?

Tie dye, duh!

[30.] Who was the last person in your bedroom besides you?

You're assuming no one is there now...

[31.] What are you doing tonight?

What or who?

[32.] Would you rather be rich & sad or poor & happy?

Is there some rule against being rich and happy?

Hey, where did #33 go?

[34.] What would you do if you found a dragon egg?

Make a magical omelet!

[35.] Do you get bored easily?

I tend to avoid people with big needles and I have kind of thick skin. So I guess that means no.

[36.] What’s something that someone can do that really bothers you?

Admittedly this is very petty, but when someone eats loudly it makes me insane. How the hell do you eat applesauce, pudding, and yogurt LOUDLY? They are SOFT foods that don't even require teeth!

[37.] Did you ever want to change your name when you were younger?

Yes, I disliked having a name so common there were 4 of us in a class. I've never enjoyed being one of the herd. Not that it's a bad name or anything.

[38.] Do you wish you were famous?

Well, I guess it beats being infamous or notorious. I'm generally content with relative obscurity though.

[39.] Do you make a wish at 11:11?

Why would I do that?

[40.] When you’re at the beach, do you swim or lay out more?

I read until I am sweating to death, go in the water until I shiver, then go back to reading.

[41.] Who is the last text message you received from and what did it say?

None of your business, you nosy thing.

[42.] What are you freakishly obsessed with?

One woman's freakishness is another woman's normal.

[44.] Do you like going to the mall to shop or just shopping online?

I don't like shopping in any context really.

[45.] Can music affect your mood?


[46.] What piercings do you want?

My enemies hoisted on a petard....oh wait, that's not really what you meant is it?

[47.] What tattoos do you want?

Edible ones.

[48.] Have you ever been in a cave?

Yes, every time I enter my children's room I wait for the bats to fly and for some slimy thing to crawl out and grab my ankle.

[49] Have you ever eaten a bug?

Voluntarily or involuntarily?

[50.] Are you holding back telling someone how you really feel about them?

Yes, because they prefer to smile at lies rather than cry at the truth.

All Hail Limey...
The Queen of Meme's!!!!
When you get on a roll you are in that sassy zone...

Jeni said...

Great fun post to read. I especially loved the one about if you've ever been in a cave! Yeah, sounds like how my son's room used to look. If you'd have seen that room way back when and go to his house today, you'd never believe it is the same person who lives there who once inhabited this house with me! Not that he is a fanatic and totally neat as a pin, but he does a heck of a lot better job at cleaning, keeping things tidy, etc. today than he did then. Guess there is hope for everyone isn't there?

James Goodman-Horror Writer said...

Wow, that was some meme. Fun reading the answers though. :D

Breazy said...

I thought I was the only one that noticed the volume in which one eats. WOW! My husband and oldest daughter make me absolutely wild with it sometimes. I have been known to throw my fork down and leave the table until they are done eating because I can't stand to hear that fricking sucking noise in the back of their throat while I am quietly trying to enjoy a meal.

I also feel the same about my kids rooms, God only knows what is going to come out on a person while they are in there. I need three signs that read "ENTER AT YOUR OWN RISK".

LOL! Thanks for the laughs Lime and have a beautiful day!

furiousBall said...

I contend the reason that they are called "dust bunnies" is that they procreate and make more dust bunnies, which is why there are so many on my floors

San said...

Delicious post, Lime. How I relate to the dust bunnies and the children's caves. And I believe we have suffered the blows of the same hairdresser. Let's start a support group.

Cooper said...

This is one of those MySpace surveys written by a high school kid who should have been doing their homework instead...

I'm sorry...i'm cantankerous and off-putting today...

Theresa said...

That was lots of fun! So,you're not going to tell us who's in your bedroom and just exactly what/who you'll be doing tonight? Does Mr. Lime know what you're up to? ;)

Keyser Soze said...

I like your new title:
Queen of The Meme!
All hail!

word ver: aasihve

lime said...

gman, *snickers

jeni, funny thing, my mother says the same about me

james, glad you enjoyed

breazy, i have to control the urge to impale people with my fork when the eat loudly. seriously, it makes me crazy.

furiousball, the rapidity with which they breed makes sense of your explanation, the size mine attain sort of makes me think 'dust gorilla.'

san, curly girls unite!!! secretly i think those kinds of hairdressers are jealous because their hair takes an act of congress to curl

cooper, well duh! and sok, i still like ya

theresa, come on, admit it, you like the mystery

keyser, asshives would be REALLY annoying and hard to scratch discretely

Casdok said...

TorAa said...

david mcmahon said...

Your answer to 31 is sheer genius!!
You always make me smile .... thank you.

lime said...

casdok, glad to be diverting

tor, i do try to find a unique spin on these things

bbc, thanks for playing along :)

david, does it qualify me for mensa membership?

S said...

I dont know about edible tattoos but I have a recipe for edible undergarments I can loan ya...

Erm, that just sounded wrong.


SignGurl said...

LMAO at Susie!! I want that recipe.

Anonymous said...

laughed a lot at your answers Mich...!!! :P i know, i know... i havent posted in over a month but something is simmering...so maybe soon...maybe...take care mwah xxx

BBC said...

"Who was the last person you got into an argument with?"

Some stupid Christian minister that keeps sending me emails. I like to tell him that he is a f****** idiot.

I would use that word on my blog but I'll try to be good here, for now. :-)

Moosekahl said...

I like the answer to #31. Might have to steal this one for something to do.

BBC said...

I see that poor Blah Blah Dan hasn't posted for a while and has turned off comments again.

He needs to get some thicker skin, this planet requires thick skin.

Great guy though.

Beach Bum said...

I can really relate with 48, my son had left a plate in his room one time that somehow got pushed under his bed. Evolution was definitely at work with the slimy green stuff growing on that plate. Plus, it seemed to be cultivating the dust bunnies which was scary.

lime said...

susie, LOL, sounds tasty and intriguing!

signgurl, if she shares it with me i'll share it with you!

guinness! good to see you, i look forward to a new post

bbc, say whatever you want in any fashion you want at your place but i'll thank you to keep it respectful at my place.

moose, steal away ;)

beach bum, eeesh, terrifying isn't it?

Boysenberry said...

Got me wondering about no 41 as well... I know it wasn't from me :)

lime said...

boysenebrry, lol, no i guess it wasn't

KFarmer said...

You had me roflol! Especially the one about the kids room : )

barman said...

I have gone almost a day without eating. It is over rated. I could stand many of said days myself.

I hear you about not being willing to let someone see or hear you cry. I may do it but not as far as others are concerned and not because I am trying to be all macho or something.

You are closer to your Mom to I am to mine. I am about 100 miles away. I love your answers. You are always looking at it from a different direction.

I so hear you on eating loudly. Sometimes it just drives me insane, other times it is just mildly annoying. This one time my Dad (false teeth so sometimes he can not help it) was particularly bad and I almost had to walk away.

I like my name mostly. That and I spell it with a "y" (no not the word it... my name) and most spell their name Brian. What drove me crazy is it seemed like for a few years Bryan or Brian was one of the popular names for kids. It drove me crazy as parents kept calling out their kids name. I learned to ignore people saying my name back than. I did miss having a cute nickname but then someone tagged me with Big Bird back in 11th grade (which did not stick long thank goodness) and I was cured of missing a nick name.

Like you I like to melt into the background. I think sometimes that drives people crazy.

What is with the 11:11 wish? Besides I like 12:34 much more anyway... oh and 2:43 but that one is a story in itself.

Ah text messaging. I am still more or less a virgin ... at text messaging that is. This one person called my phone and it was a wrong number. I told them they had the wrong number and now I have gotten at least 5 text messages from them too. So that is the last text message I got. Don't know what it said.

You do not do a ton of meme's but I really love your slant on things. What an enjoyable read.

Mona said...

G man stole what I wanted to say :(

But I will second it anyway.. you are indeed QUEEN OF MEMES!

I love the answer to no 15! ( dirty looks or flirty looks LOL!)

Susie is surely unique in every sense. ROFLMAO!

Phain said...

i have SO stolen this meme (like that would surprise you!)

Liquid said...

I am cracking up at your answers!
Your fun.
