The Queen's Meme #27 ~ The Olympics Meme (aka Bloglympics)

Welcome to the Queen's Tuesday Meme #27

Sometimes silly. Sometimes serious. Always fun!
Step out of the box. Be creative. Use your imagination.
No one's answers are quite like yours.

Maestra Mimi has a quiz for you today. How much do you think you know about the Olympics? See if you can go for the gold and answer these questions correctly. IF you want to spoof it, by all means, spoof away! The answers are at the bottom of this post. NO CHEATING unless you want to end up in the you-know-where.

5. I predict that Blogging will become the next Olympic event recognized by the International Olympic Committee as a valid sport. How would you train for this event? And if you think it should be a team event, who would you include on your team?

6. What do the five Olympic rings represent?

7. No country in the Southern Hemisphere has ever hosted the Winter Games? Why?

What was the penalty for doing so?

11. In 1908 the organizers of the London Olympic Games added another 385 yards in order for the royal family to have a better view of the finish line.

I'm not playing along this week Mimi. I watched ZERO coverage of the Olympics. I just didn't get into it at all. A fun meme can't even draw my attention :)

Have a nice week, Queen!

Hope you are well. Thanks for commenting.

I am with jennifer on this one. I know, how unpatriotic of me. But whatever dude I have been running my own version of the olympics in my house. I battled the luge of laundry, the curling kitty litter clean-up, the living room hockey a la baby toys in the box check, and did i get a metal? I do not think so.

Trust me, what I have pulled off in the past two weeks has been epic. EPIC!

and now I am leaving, on a jet palne, away from my babies and husband and normality, to attend a work seminar, in a different freaking country! Travelling like mad to learn, and with little time to actually do anything but work, or travel.

Forget the olympics. I am totally a marathon GURU. lol....

(really i am tired and have no funny answers to the meme. and bad hotel internet.)
