Take Out Your Pencils, This is a Pop Meme

Stealing this from Cooper who stole it from Mimi.

1. Do you know your primary colors? Describe for me, if you will, the colors red, blue and green to a blind person. 
I know the primary colors are red, YELLOW, and blue.
red – the feeling of sunburn
blue –being thrown naked into a snow bank
green – the smell of the air after a warm summer rain
2. What was your adult summer reading?

You got something against reading to kids?

3. When you assembled your clothes last night for today’s activities – you did do that, didn’t you? – what did you choose to wear?
A Carmen Miranda style fruit bowl hat, a Nehru jacket,  camouflage pants, and swim fins tastefully accessorized with cockroach buttons, a twine belt, and strobe light earrings.

4. What’s in your lunchbox?

Pop rocks and Coca-cola.  I lost the will to live after yesterday's reading lesson featured yet another Dick and Jane story.

5. Imagine that your teacher is your fantasy crush. What would you bring her/him on the first day of school? 
I'd drop a dead mouse at his feet then lick myself clean with my paws.

6. No rest for the weary. Your child’s teacher just called. A big ole’ bully knocked your precious one into a locker for no good reason at all. What is your response to the principal?

Why am I responding to the principal when the teacher is the one who called me?

7. You have been given a pair of scissors, a glue stick and copy of Entertainment Weekly. Whose picture do you cut out and who do you glue to your headboard?
Glue makes things uncomfortably sticky.  I'll just use fuzzy handcuffs to secure him.

8. TEN POINT BONUS QUESTION! Now that you have time to watch all those Gilligan’s Island reruns, tell me….What was the Professor really doing with Mary Ann all that time they were lost in the jungle?
Writing the pilot for Lost.

And remember this uplifting quote:
“If there were no schools to take the children away from home part of the time, the insane asylums would be filled with mothers.”
— Edgar W. Howe

As an almost perpetually confused fan of "Lost" I half expected the shipwrecked crew of the Minnow to show up a couple of times.

Well you know, the primary colors are different, depending on whether you're talking about pigment or light. For pigment (ie, if you're mixing paint), they are, as you correctly note, red, yellow and blue. For light (ie, how colors are created on your computer screen), it's red, blue and green. . .

Anyway, I've always been a secondary colors (purple, orange, green) kinda guy. . .

And you're makin' me all nostalgic for my old nehru jacket. . .

PS - Beach Bum, now I've gotta clean up all the coffe I just blew out my nose. . .

I know what the Professor was doing with Mary Ann, and that's why he invented all those things to make life easier on the island but never a way for them to get off. He was already getting off.

S said...

Oh yeah, I would be in the insane asylum for sure.

Wonders how you would have described yellow to the blind?

rob, don't move a muscle

beach bum, i gave up on the series in the first season. i knew i'd never retain the remote regularly enough to insure keeping up with it.

craig, i do know the different issues with primary colors and i also knew you'd be the one to point out the difference. lol

suldog, excellent point

s, yellow is when the sun comes out and warms you gently after it's been cloudy or rainy

Great color descriptions. I think I'll park that question in my memory to use it for conversation later. You know, when the atmosphere gets awkwardly quiet all-of-the-sudden.

I'm going to do this meme tomorrow, Lime. By the way, I’ve also tagged you for a short meme: Tagged!

Eric Alder said...

Okay, I couldn't wait - I did your MEME

Hi Lime,

LOL. When you have seen it, well, there might be some points here regarding some of your answers;)

I like.

And thanks for your comments to my blog - -

OMG, that closing quote is a little bit where I'm at these days--my kids have no friends, activities, or school, so it's all US, all the time.

Come visit me at the asylum?

Now the outfit described here is really something that ought to be featured in "Slice of Lime."
