The Queen's Meme #69 ~ The Board Game Meme

Welcome to The Queen's Meme #69 
Are you bored? Well I'm about to perk you up with a few board game questions. Ever played Pick Up Stix? It's a blast. My brothers and I used to play every weekend at my aunt's house.  Pretend you're 12, pop a big bowl of popcorn, stretch out on the carpet or set up the card table and let's play! Oh, BTW... These are my games and my rules. Just so ya know...

1. Twister

Who would you like to get your arms and legs tangled up with?

2. Monopoly
You have just landed on Boardwalk and collected a nice sum in rent payments.
Which Monopoly token do you want to be when you grow up?

3. Candyland
This game is based on The Legend of The Lost Candy Castle. Did you know that? The object of the game is to reach the Candy Castle. But in my game, the object is to avoid the dungeon that is in the Candy Castle.  You must swim through the Ice Cream Sea to be victorious.
What is your flavor?

4. Operation
You are the surgeon. You have the tweezers in your hand. It is time to remove the most irritating person or thing in your life.
What is the name of this organ?

5. Sorry!
I often say that success is the best revenge. Lucky for you!
Sorry! is a game of sweet revenge. 
What is your strategy for success today?

6. Wheel of Fortune!
It's your spin. You have just landed on a surprise vacation package. 
It's yours if you can name the destination with 3 vowels and 2 consonants. 

7. Clue
Miss Scarlet (that's you) is in the Library with the knife. Who did she kill and why?

The Queen's Meme #67 ~ The Strange January Meme

Welcome to the Queen's Meme #67. 
It's called The Strange January Meme.

There are some strange traditions associated with this month, many of those noted here are British customs, however, strange customs hail from every corner of the globe. Help me decipher the January mysteries of the Universe below. And I sincerely hope you remembered to bake a cake for the cow.

1. January usually has ample amounts of snowfall in parts of the world. Did you ever make snow cream as a kid?

2. January is the first month of the year in the Gregorian calendar. The name comes from the Latin word ianua meaning door and is named after the god of the doorway, Janus.
Is there a particular door you'd like to step through this year?

3. January is one of the months with 31 days. What are you going to do with that extra day?

4. In medieval times superstition dictated that the 1st day of January was significant for prosperity, or lack of it, in a person's life. Farmers put a flat cake on the horns of a cow and they danced and sang songs around the cow until the cake was thrown to the ground. If it fell in front of the cow that meant good luck; it if fell behind the cow that meant bad luck for the rest of the year.
Do you have strange New Year customs in your household?

5. Did you know that it's unlucky to see the first new moon of the year through a window? You should, instead, look through a new silk handkerchief! Did you remember to do this?

 6. On January 14, 1986 motorists were required for the first time to wear seat belts? 
Do you always buckle up? Why or why not?

7.   If you are single and want to find a mate, legend has it that on January 20th you should walk backwards up the stairs to bed.  If you don't have a staircase you should recite The Lord's Prayer while transferring pins from a pin cushion to your sleeve.
I couldn't find a male ritual to attract women. 
Make one up.
