The Queen's Meme #80 ~ The Royal Wedding Pain Meme

7 Royal Questions on Tuesday
#80 The Royal Wedding Pain Meme

I am grumpy because I've not received an invitation from Prince William and Kate Middleton to attend their upcoming nuptials in London. I'm sure it's been lost in the mail but that doesn't ease my anxiety. If it doesn't arrive soon I'll be forced to crash the event and that would be most undignified indeed - even for me! And since I'm being a royal pain in the patootie today, you may replace any of the questions you don't like with a new question. Just humor me.

1. If you received an invitation to the Royal Wedding, who would you take with you and why?

2. If the Prince and his fiancee had a blog, what would the title be?

 3. Are you going to watch The Royal Wedding between Prince William and Catherine "Kate" Middleton this week?

4. Imagine you only have $5.00 and you must buy a wedding gift for them. What would you buy?

 5. What day-to-day marital advice would you give the couple?
Prince William seen here with his father, Prince Charles, as William is installed as a Knight of The Garter. 
What other woman can say she has a man with those credentials, huh?

6. You have been employed as the caterer for the reception at Buckingham Palace.  
What are you serving?
7.  This is the Royal Wedding Route from Buckingham Palace to Westminster Abbey.  What location is missing? You must add a location along the way that you feel is a must stop for the couple before they get married.

I'll see you there!
I hope.

The Queen's Meme #79 ~ The Give and Take Meme

Welcome to the Queen's Meme
7 Royal Questions on Tuesday
#79 The Give and Take Meme

We've all been givers. We've all been takers. Is it better to give than to receive? Hmmm.....always a question up for debate. Depends on the circumstance I suppose. Who wrote that line anyway? Quite possibly the person who didn't get what he gave. Or maybe a selfless soul full of true righteousness.  Maya Angelou wrote that "giving liberates the soul of the giver."  I would tend to agree. Another favorite quote of mine on the subject is by Khalil Gibran: "Generosity is giving more than you can, and pride is taking less than you need."
What are our motivations for giving? And what, pray ye, will ye take? That is my question.
Why am I suddenly speaking Quakerish?
I'd better get on with this meme.

1.  IS it better to give than to receive?

2. Can you name a special or unique gift you've received? What made it special to you?

3. What does it mean to "give of yourself?"

4. Tell us something you once took that you wish you could give back.

5. Have you ever been robbed of something that changed the course of your life?

6. If you could give one thing to the people that you love most and give it in abundance, what would it be?

7.  When is the last time you GAVE yourself a good talking to?

I will leave you with one of our brightest minds on the subject of giving, Albert Einstein. He wrote:
Albert Einstein: Any man who can drive safely while kissing a pretty girl is simply not giving the kiss the attention it deserves.
Wise man that Albert.

Welcome to The Queen's Meme #78
7 Royal Questions on Tuesday

Today we are discussing the wonders of Spring.   But it's not all about blooming flowers and Easter cards this time. Just a simple play on words with a twisted smack of alliteration and snark thrown in. You know, the usual. Now do me a favor and add your smack to the smack.

1. What about spring ticks you off the most?

2.  How many blooming idiots have you met lately?

3. If spring springs early when you're in the middle of a spring fling, does that mean you must flung 'em out of your life early or can it wait until summer comes?

4. If you could toss one thing or person out the window during your annual spring cleaning, who would it be?

5. Do you have seasonal defective disorder?

6.   If you left the windows open on a cool spring night, what would the neighbors see?

7.  Name your most potent allergens during this season of (achoo!) bliss.
