The Queen's Meme #7

Sparks Of Insanity By Vinny "Bond" Marini Wednesday, August 26, 2009

Just a little heads up. From September 4th through September 15, we will be in pre-automated mode here on The Couch.

I know the in thing is to ask people to guest host on your blog if you are going to be away, but HECK-A-DOODLE, y'all know what a narcissist I am! Why would I let someone else take over here!!! LOL

So, there will be posts every week day during that time. Most will be TUNEAGE TUTELAGE - NEW MUSIC posts. I have some most excellent artists to bring to your attention during my time away.

So please remember to come by and leave your comments and your votes on the polls, because these people know all about it. As I was pre-planning I ended up having multiple email exchanges with some of the people that will be featured.

I let them all know that this is not just some fluff 'focus group' that my guests tell it like it is and so far I have not had one complaint.

So, moving on...The Queen has resurrected a fun Meme of yore...Take it away O Queen -

Today we're going to take a mini-vacation before summer gets away from us.
I hope you have fun with this!

And please, stay out of the dungeon.

Somewhere in a faraway bloggiverse on an island with a palm tree swaying in the breeze, a message bottle sits side by side with a Pina Colada and a cute little striped umbrella horizontally tilted in the beachy sand.

Did YOUR bottle make it to land? Have you checked lately?

There are now 285 bottles floating in the bloggy ocean just waiting to be mysteriously delivered to a tropical island near you. It's time you added yours!

Here are the rules:

You are about to send a virtual Message In a Bottle across the Blog Ocean.

Leave a message in the sand or on the bottle. Write anything you wish. Be a pirate or a poet. Serious or silly. Rant or ruminate.

Anonymous or not.

What message would you like to send out to the universe?

Message In A Bottle Meme

1. Compose a message to place in your virtual bottle below.
It can even be ANONYMOUS message. I will not reveal your identity.

2. Right click and Save the graphic below

3. Use a graphics program of your choice to place the message on the picture

4. Post the meme and these rules on your blog

5. Tag a minimum of five people - or your entire blogroll - to do the same.
Notify them of the tag.

Your virtual bottle will remain afloat in the blogosphere ocean for all blogernity (That's a Mimism for blog + eternity.)I will add it to the master list of message bottles when you let me know you've completed the meme.


I will also add it to Message In a Bottle blog with a link back to you.

OK, so there you have it...

Y'all are it a virtual wedding present, I want Mimi inundated with Message In A Bottle notifications!

I have done three in the past and you can see them HERE.

Here is one I did for this meme...thought it was most appropriate with only 10 days left!!!!! WOOOO

Yes, Queen...I did alter the artwork...

bwahahahahahahahahahaha (clickie4biggie)
