Everybody's Meme-ing for the Weekend

1. What is your typical weekend like?
I often start by overthrowing a small nation, proceed to inventing a new technology, then finish by curing some obscure disease. If things become stressful I unwind by memorizing a single volume of Encyclopedia Britannica.

2. Are you a party animal or a couch potato on the weekends?
I believe the correct term is Supreme Tuberous Commander of the Davenport Sector.

3. It wasn’t until 1940 that the two-day weekend became nationwide. I say it’s time for three-day weekend across the whole world! . Wouldn’t you love to work 4 days and off 3 all the time? Do you think this is a good idea?
I work for pay three days a week and spend 4 days a week away from that job so you could say I have a 4 day weekend. Then again, I am a mom so I am on call 24/7 so you could also say I never get a weekend.

4. Do you consider Sunday a traditional day of rest?
Of rest? The rest of what?

5. What are your around-the-house weekend chores?
Polishing the cat, jello stacking, laminating the used Kleenex, alphabetizing the recyclables, and recharging Mr. Lime's neckties

6. If you have a significant other in your life or are dating, what is your favorite indoor and outdoor activity?
What, I'm not allowed to have a favorite indoor and outdoor activity unless I have a significant other or I'm dating? Pfft. Then I am not going to tell you what my favorites are.

7. Where would go for a romantic weekend getaway?
Where would what go? Where would who go? This sentence's syntax is vaguely caveman-ish and I sure wouldn't go anywhere with a cavemen. He'd be too inclined to drag my by my hair, at which point I'd have to beat the hell out of him to make a getaway which would be anything but romantic.

8. Do you have any special weekend traditions, quirks or rituals?
Traditions: I get out my great grandmother's miniature spinning wheel so I can spin spider silk into multiply threads out of which I knit mystical armor for little people since spider silk has a greater tensile strength than steel. She was the armor master for an army of Lilliputians.

Quirks: I'm quirk-free. Everything about me is completely average, totally expected, and entirely conventional.

Rituals: Reciting the Cyrillic alphabet backwards while standing on my left foot, juggling rabid marmosets, and blowing snot bubbles in time to Stars and Stripes Forever.

9. What is your weekend blogging routine?
Listen, with all the things I mentioned in #1 and then in #8, where on Earth do you think I find the time to blog on weekends?

10. Tell us about your favorite weekend memories as a child?

You know how some families are Civil War re-enactors or they enjoy Renaissance Fairs or recreating other time periods? My family was big into the Spanish Inquisition. The big Torture Festivals were great times of family togetherness...or division as the case may be...ah the eviscerations, the rackings, the drawings and quarterings....good times, good times.

The meme queen strikes again!

Ah, my dear, you are the Amazing Queen of Memes. . . (and remind me not make grammar errors your memes) (but I'm unclear about the 'multiply threads'. . .)

Can you tie-dye the spider-silk armor?

When I was in high school, I memorized both the Greek and Cyrillic alphabets (altho reciting them backwards might be a stretch)

Could you post video of the snot-bubble thing?

And, uh - "I'm quirk-free. Everything about me is completely average, totally expected, and entirely conventional.". . . (*snort*) (*chortle*) BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!

(*ahem*) I'm sure you are. . .

I party very hard from my couch.

Cricket said...

O Great One, Exalted Queen of Memes, boy would I love to see your take on Suldog's 3 Falsehoods, 1 Truth.

Seriously.

Craver Vii said...

The snot bubbles really got to me, and I was laughing hysterically until I got to the part about eviscerations. Now I am a little scared...

Moannie said...

Queen? QUEEN? Great high exhalted Empress no less.

I would definitely vote for a three day work, four day off week as long as I could get paid full-time.

Suldog said...

In the immortal words of Joe Namath to Suzy Kolber, "I want to kiss you right now."

(It was extremely sleazy when said it to her on national TV, but I mean it in the nicest way. Thanks for the laughs!)

Beach Bum said...

Do you consider Sunday a traditional day of rest?

Yeah I agree completely, the rest of what? I'm more busy on Sundays sometimes than the rest of the week.

Ananda girl said...

Thank you lime... I needed these laughs.
