Sari It's Another Meme

Mona got me!

1. At what age do you wish to marry?
Well, I am already married. Do you mean divorce and remarry or perhaps choose a second consort to the Queen of Memes?

2. If the end was near and you had the chance, what would you say to your beloved?
Smoking or non-smoking, darling?

3. If sex is a game … would you be good at it?
Well, I doubt I'd be offered multimillion dollar contracts as a free agent or make the Olympic team but I think I'd be competitive in backyard pick up games.

4. Where is the place that you want to go the most?
The bathroom, excuse me for a minute....

5. If you could have 1 dream come true, what would it be?
Well it sure wouldn't be the one I wrote this Friday 55 about!

6. Do you believe you can survive without money?
Well, maybe if we went back to bartering chickens and goats. Even then, wouldn't the chickens and goats just be the currency?

7. What are you most afraid to lose?
My marbles

8. If you won $1 million, what would you do?
Ask if they could give it to me in rolls of quarters. I hate scrambling for change at the toll booths and parking meters.

9. If someone broke your hand, what would you do?
Let's see....When it actually did happen I believe I stayed on the ground thinking I was damn lucky not to land on the boulder next to me, went into shock, and waited for the EMTs to come carry me out and stick me into a helicopter. Of course, I had a lot more than just my hand broken. I also had a strange concern for my Birkenstocks. I didn't want them staying outside and getting rained on all night.

10. List 3 good points of the person who tagged you.
She's brilliant, compassionate, and lovely.

11. How would you feel if your parents stopped giving you cash to spend?
You are kidding, right? I'm 39. Ask me how many years it has been since they said, "Here's a wad of cash for you to spend."

12. Describe your fantasized-life.
My life is perfect I want for nothing. Wait lemme try that again, I didn't get through it with a straight face.

13. What is your ambition?
To muster up some ambition.

14. What is the one thing that would make you think someone is bad?
Like James said, if you harm children you are bad.

15. What are the most important things in your life?
People, not things, are what is important to me.

16. Are you a shopaholic or not?
Emphatically not. Shopping is a special brand of torment.

17. If you had the chance, which part of your character would you like to change?
If you think I am a character you should meet some of my old neighbors.

18. Do you believe in yourself?
Believe as in know I exist? I think therefore I am.
Believe as in trust my own abilities? I think I can.

19. Honestly, do you think life is fair?
I think mine is more like a circus than a fair.

20. Are you an optimist or pessimist?
I alternate between being a realist who vacillates between hope and defeat and being an idealist who knows how she wants things to be but knows it will never happen and yet keeps striving.

Okay, then - How many years it has been since your parents said, "Here's a wad of cash for you to spend" ?

No, really, good meme though aimed at a youngish crowd!

You, My Darling, "got it goin' on!" I am again delighted with that wonderful mind and spirit of wit that are just a part of your loveliness. Such a joy! Thank you Michelle, for consistently making life more enjoyable.

I love You.

Kathryn said...

Hehehe. No wonder you are always getting tagged for memes. :)

Beach Bum said...

Great meme, Yeah I need to muster up some ambition myself but first I have to get the energy.

M said...

Ques #9 about the broken hand?? That is the oddest meme question I have ever seen.

Ques #3...if sex is a game... then it takes two to make a good game. unless sex is a game of computer solitaire in which case solo skills come into play.

barman said...

"backyard pick up games" ... love it. You are the master of meme's... Oh wait, I think I saw you were the queen. I always love your responses.

My likfe alternates from being a funeral to being a circus. I can not imagine the life you life. I would be dead in a week's time tops.

#14 and #15, right on.

I love to read your meme's. Thanks for sharing Lime.

lecram said...

I can't get past the "parents...wad of cash" question.

Anonymous said...

Oh dear, I might just have to do this one...

Suldog said...

I am now absolutely, positively kicking myself for not meeting up with you when I had a chance. At least half of those answers could have been mine. Next time you're in the area, we definitely go for some lunch or something, OK?

G-Man said...

Haven't you already done this one?
They all look the same to me.
But yet you endeavor to perserver!

Craver Vii said...

You're a vacillating realist? Um, you know there's no cure for that, right?

Breazy said...

Great answers Michelle. I always enjoy reading your answers to memes and such because you are so creative with them.

Have a great day!

Flash said...

You got like a MeMe Bullseye painted on you!

Diesel said...

If the answer to #3 is yes, then the answer to #6 should be too. Sadly, this only works for women.

ciara said...

great answers, lime

Fred said...

Marbles as in mind or marbles as in the game?

And, for the record, I couldn't live without money. I don't need chickens.

Great list.

Happy Monday (isn't that an oxymoron?)!!!!!

Rob said...

I love pickup games in the backyard! What do you say, shirts versus skins? You're on, sister! ;-)

Dorky Dad said...

That has to be the most complicated answer to the optimist-pessimist question I've ever seen. Congrats!

Palm Springs Savant said...

good answers are a trooper for this one!

VE said...

For No 20, I'm a Sierra Mist.

James Goodman, Author said...

lol, fantastic answers, Lime. :D You sure know how to put a smile on my face. :D

Mona said...

LIME! Oh Darn.. I am late here to comment. I was out of station & just came in & am dog tired right now!

This is so fantastically done with your usual pep & unique witty sense of humor!

I love your brains & also the whole of you in every sense :D

Thanks for playing!

Mona said...

I not only think life isn't fair, I don't think it was meant to be fair.

I'm also starting to think that those who have it easiest are in the worst positions. Those who have things to prove in their youths seem to get more done in their adulthood.
