The Queen's Meme ~ Blog Outside The Box (Updated!)

Welcome to our first edition of The Queen's Meme. It's exciting to start a fresh new meme in the blogosphere. I hope you enjoy our "live" launch and come back to play again. The question format and subject will vary. Each week the type of meme will change; sometimes silly, sometimes serious, but always fun! If you'd like to be linked here as a member of the royal family, just leave a comment and of course, please link back to us. Feel free to grab a badge from the sidebar for your own blog or copy and link the image you see here. Now let's get started!


The Blog Outside The Box Meme
This meme is all about using your imagination. Free your inner blogginess. Step outside the proverbial blox (that's blog + box for all you non-blog speakers). Answer these ridiculous situational questions and post them on your own blog. Here's the situation for today. We won't tell a soul. And remember:
Don't end up in the dungeon.



1. You are in court. You are in deep doo-doo. What did you do? ('Cause if you want, I might could talk to the judge and get your sentence reduced to Bloggingham dungeon time.)

2. Your blog just became a best-selling book . What is the title of your book ?

3. It is midnight. The phone rings. It is Michael Jackson calling from the Great Beyond.

What would you like to ask him?

4. You are having your future told. The fortune teller looks in the crystal ball, screams and leaves the room in fright. What did they see?



5. You're blogging along minding your own blusiness (that's blog + oh...you know) when Google unexpectedly puts a Objectionable Content Warning on your blog. Your own mother is afraid to enter! What, pray tell, did you do to warrant it? How did this happen? Do you think you deserve it? Just how objectionable are you? Do tell.


6. You suddenly become God Of The Universe. What would your first Commandment be?


7. And finally, what secret would you like to tell the Queen?
Not to worry. What happens in Bloggingham, stays in Bloggingham.

How To Stay Out Of The Dungeon
Once upon a time in a faraway Bloggiverse there lived a maiden named Queen Mimi Pencil Skirt. She slayed her own dragons, stoked her own fire and well.....wrote memes by the light of the Bloggingham moon. One day a kind blogger from England noticed her meme lovin' ways and royally crowned her Mimi Queen of Memes. As time passed in the peaceful kingdom of Bloggingham, her Royal Highness found comfort in the company of fellow bloggers who also loved memes. But the Queen had a wicked disposition too. It is widely reported in historical Blogosphere archives that any and all bloggers found guilty of not completing their memes were promptly thrown into the dreaded Bloggingham dungeon.
If I were you, I'd do the meme.

Thank you for playing the
Queen's Meme this
week. Please leave a comment and
sign the Mr. Linky when you have posted. Go visit your
fellow memers and have a great time! See you next Tuesday!

Mimi Lenox said...

Kimber - Ummm......You wanted to shoot a rifle from the tower of Bloggingham. FUN???!

Who knew memeing could be so dangerous?

Mimi Lenox said...

Eric - Is that what is causing all these problems? I have had nothing but probs with Blogger for 2 days now. Pictures won't load, can't make comments.

I so look forward to your answers!
Thanks for being here to play. You will be hilarious.

Speedcat Hollydale said...

DONE !!!

http://speedcathollydale.blogspot.com/2009/07/queens-meme-blog-outside-box.html

A quick fix is to put the widget VERY LAST in the footer of your blog ... (wink)

Finding Pam said...

It's up and posted. That's all I can say except good-night.

Mimi Lenox said...

Eric - I read it. It's awesome!! (but I'm still in shock over #4) ha ha

Anyway...put it in the footer?
No one would follow that way.
What has Google done? It's crazy.

Thank you for playing my meme!
You are a riot.

Mimi Lenox said...

Pam - I just read your answers. They were perfect!

Devilish Southern Belle said...

Hey - you promised you'd be back last night to let me out... as long as you didn't get shot.
You weren't shot were you?
Oh PLEASE tell me your not dead.
I need those keys MIMI!

Thom is trying to frame me... don't listen to him. OK?

Mimi Lenox said...

Dawn...Shhhh!! I'm still hiding from the insane one.

Jean-Luc Picard said...

I've done mine!

Thom said...

Oh your Hineyness...I promise you it wasn't me. Didn't you see that I said you look BEAUTIFUL in a string bikini? *me turns his head and laughs silently (yeah right). It was the Twisted one that made me do it. She told me that if I said old that she would be my fair maiden in her french maid's outfit and feed you and serve you with love and honor you so that I could watch and learn from the master dungeoness. Besides of Your Hiney Majesty...it stinks in here like someone named Dawn...I don't get it...but please I beg you oh Your Cuteness (*turns head and sncikers again) I did no wrong. Dawn...she's a devil in sheeps clothing.She blames Kimber and Berleen for trying to slay poor Judd. Blasphemy I tell ya.

Mimi Lenox said...

Jean-Luc - I read it. It was very funny! Especially the Michael Jackson one.

ATTENTION: Everybody go over and wish Jean-Luc a happy birthday.

Mimi Lenox said...

Thom,

Your Hineyness just cost you another fifty years. You heard me!

jennifer said...

I ALMOST FORGOT!! Working on the meme right now and I'll link when it's posted.

Thom said...

But it's said with such love and aloha. *me thinks I'll just put some peanut butter under my nose to keept he Dawn stink out. How is that twit of a Dawn staying outta here? She started all of this "old" stuff...she even told me to call you "Your Haughtiness" but I told her oh know we can't say that. So that's when she switched to old and even gave me they idea for the Hiney - Oh "Your Mammothness" oops...I mean "Your Plumpness"...errr...*Dawn stop feeding me these suggestions...

Thom said...

Help me I'm gonna die in this Dawn Stenched Dungeon...*me smells more peanut butter as he begs ado and is off to work for the rest of the day...Oh one more please "Your Ripeness" You still are my Queen of all Queens" Dawn did it Dawn did it? Are ya listening "Your Deafness" oops I mean...crap who knows what I mean

Mimi Lenox said...

Jennifer you sweet thing you - Thank you for showing up! I'm excited about it. The players have been awesome this week.

Mimi Lenox said...

I am not speaking to you, Thom. Get back down there with the rats and smelly peanut butter.

I'm so telling Dawn you called her a twit.

StraitJacketMom (Berleen) said...

*sits in the corner glaring at Kimber*

Mimi Lenox said...

I forgot.
I am not speaking to you.

Mimi Lenox said...

Tell me, Berleen, do you like it in the dungeon? Has she put down her weapons yet? Did you bring the peanut butter cups? Is Thom really stinky? Will you be able to control Kimber???! We're counting on you to talk some sense into her.

I'll throw down an extra blanket for you.

StraitJacketMom (Berleen) said...

No I don't like it in here and I DON'T BELONG HERE!!! I forgot the damn PB cups, but it does smell a little bit like peanut butter, although I don't know why.

I'm not talking to Kimber, so someone else better talk some sense into her.

*turns her back on Kimber as she throws a rat at her*

MamaJosephine said...

I had fun playing, thanks for inviting me! Looking forward to next Tuesday!!

Mimi Lenox said...

Josephine - You are so welcome. Your post was very funny! Welcome!

Duchess Dethroned said...

What's this about pink fluffy handcuffs??

Mimi Lenox said...

Duchess - I put a picture of pink fluffy handcuffs on my blog because I was "arrested" for "blog profanity" (ha!...I said doo-doo) and the handcuffs have now taken on a life of their own.
Cogitator remarked that they didn't come off so easily and I said "NOW you tell me.." Hence the ticker above.

Oh, how things get spun out of control in these parts.

Why??! What did you hear about the pink fluffies??!

Duchess Dethroned said...

Ooooh! I see!

I thought maybe they were mine. Haha! I mentioned to Bud that, thanks to his commandment, I would be using them soon. Hehehe!

entsala said...

i played and posted!!! looking forward to some more fun!

Mimi Lenox said...

Duchess - Well, have fun then. You just might get that Google warning yet! Ha!

Mimi Lenox said...

Entsala - Loved your answers too! Thanks for playing. Do come back.

Peter (Worldman): said...

I will certainly be part of the royal circle and honor the Queen. Just as soon as I am out of my heavy (very heavy) workload in a huge humanitarian aid operation in Sri Lanka.

Mimi Lenox said...

Peter - That certainly is important work. I hope to see you soon! Thanks for stopping by.

Lisa said...

Loved this one!! Great questions and I had fun with them! Happy to play.

Mimi Lenox said...

Lisa - I just read yours. You are very funny!

Mimi Lenox said...

Lisa - I just read yours. You are very funny!

Travis said...

Mine will be up at midnight, so I went ahead and signed Mr Linky.

amanda said...

Wow great turnout for first edition congrats!

Ferd said...

There. I played. Lame-o, but I just wanted to stay out of the dungeon. And, it's late. And, the sun was in my eyes. Yeah, that's it, the sun was in my eyes.

Kimber said...

I like the dungeon. It's fun and rats make great pets. Throw Berleen out of the dungeon, she's no fun. She's also a cranky fathead without her PB cups.

I'd rather be in here with just me, my voices and my pet rats. That one Berleen threw at me is named Harry. He likes long walks along the beach and chewing on my finger.

Mimi Lenox said...

Travis - Yours was hysterical! I loved your commandment.

Mimi Lenox said...

Ferd - YOU stay out of the dungeon? I think not. Read the ticker at the top of my blog and weep.

Mimi Lenox said...

Berleen - I cannot believe you threw a rat at Kimber! YUKKKKK...

Mimi Lenox said...

Amanda -Thanks so much for playing!

Mimi Lenox said...

Kimber - Save it for the judge.

Mimi Lenox said...

This from the Zombieslayer
I found it in Xmichra's comments.

1. The King wears lederhosen? Good for him. You should try to get the Queen drunk. You might walk away with your head.

2. Hmm...
I'd probably call mine Shootin' political correctness in the head.

3. I highly doubt MJ would call me. If he did, I'd tell him I thought Prince was superior in talent. He'd hang up.

4. Uh oh. Maybe you killed her. Did you leave a tip?

5. Glad I left Google. But then again, I get a tenth of the traffic now it's hosted on my own domain. But I don't have a big ego so it's no big deal.

Good answer about your mother. With mine, she has a worse mouth than I do.

6. I'd sterilize 95% of the human race immediately. That would solve 99% of the world's problems.

7. That all along, I was rooting for the Irish. Sorry Mrs. Queen. I'm all about red-heads and Ireland has the highest percentage of red-heads in the world. Plus, Ireland's got the best beer (Guinness).

Jean-Luc Picard said...

Mimi!!! It's my birthday on January 14th!

Thom said...

Oh "Your Bigness"...thank you so much for throwing these other slim's in with me. Now I have so much company WOOT...The twit has arrived in the dungeon" Ooops...I mean "Your Beautyness" ye young royal subject bows to your every command. I would think you would throw Travis in now too because of his comparison of SYTYCD with DWTS...how rude. See Kimber and Berleen should have to stay here for a LONG LONG time...they were bad girls...very bad girls..Oh and Did ya throw away the keys when you put our one and only twit in here? I so hope so "Your Not Knowing when Birthday's really areness"

Thom said...

OH yeah...Dawn also suggested that I say this about Travis. She is just opening that big yap all the time :) She deserves solitaire

Mimi Lenox said...

Thom,

I just added 1000 years to your already doomed sentence. I suggest you think before you speak! Can you make Kimber stop throwing rats while you're at it?

Mimi Lenox said...

Stop saying bad things about Dawn!! I'm letting her out tonight. She shouldn't have to be in there with you.

She says your feet stink.

Phoenix said...

LOL! That was fun! :)

Mimi Lenox said...

Phoenix,

Glad you liked it. Do come again.

1. You are in court. You are in deep doo-doo. What did you do? ('Cause if you want, I might could talk to the judge and get your sentence reduced to Bloggingham dungeon time.)

I strongly suspect that I might enjoy time in the Blogginham Palace dungeon, so I'd have to plead guily to the most hienous of crimes and cast myself upon the mercy of the Queen.

2. Your blog just became a best-selling book . What is the title of your book ?

"Any fool can run a Gîte"

3. It is midnight. The phone rings. It is Michael Jackson calling from the Great Beyond.
What would you like to ask him?

How the f**k did he get my phone to work? France Telecom have been trying for ages.

4. You are having your future told. The fortune teller looks in the crystal ball, screams and leaves the room in fright. What did they see?

The nasty spider lurking under the ball.


5. You're blogging along minding your own blusiness (that's blog + oh...you know) when Google unexpectedly puts a Objectionable Content Warning on your blog. Your own mother is afraid to enter! What, pray tell, did you do to warrant it? How did this happen? Do you think you deserve it? Just how objectionable are you? Do tell.

I was overcome by a suddent urge to detail my sexual history, to share with the world my joys and pains in the hope that some wisdom will come from it. Your level of objection depends on whether you consider an innocent exploration of mutual pleasures to be sinful or not.

6. You suddenly become God Of The Universe. What would your first Commandment be?

More empathy, please, everyone.

7. And finally, what secret would you like to tell the Queen?

I never had an affair with Janet. I never slept with Catherine at that company event. (Mind you, nobody would believe you in either case, if you told them)

LADYHIGHTOWER said...

sshhhhh! Be quiet, Mouse. Tread softly and scurry to the Queen's bedroom and find it ere she returns from playing her silly memes. I said,"sshhhh, Mouse!"Oh,fiddly-dee! Ye MUST find it. Ye must!

Mimi Lenox said...

Lady - Mouse??! Where???!!

Tha Anonymous Player said...
