A Queenly Wednesday...

Sparks Of Insanity By Vinny "Bond" Marini Wednesday, July 21, 2010


I love to tease Queen Mimi that I can break out of her dungeon anytime I like...well, it is true, but I still like to tease her...

Welcome to The Queen's Meme #45, also known as the What Would You Do Meme.

1. You start out on your road trip. You are 90 miles down the road with not a care in the world until you remember you forgot the most important ingredient needed for your vacation. What was it and would you turn around and go back to get it?

Most important? hummm...is that my camera? my bathing suit? my money? If money, I would go back and grumble the whole time. Anything else except for tickets needed, I guess I could replace while away.

2. You are standing in the checkout line at the grocery store. A homeless man walks by and asks for food from your grocery cart. What would you do?

This bothers me because I do not like pan-handlers...I give to the food bank on almost every trip to the store. When they are collecting for homeless shelters or the military, I always grab their list and buy some items off of it...pan-handling, I do not like...though I have purchased food from a fast food place when I know there will be a homeless person outside.


3. The mailman delivers the wrong mail. It is your neighbor's. You can't stand your neighbor. You realize that inside the small brown package there must be something very secretive, very intriguing, and possibly incriminating. What do you do?

I have my own sex toys - thanks..what? OH, well when you said brown package I presumed...but unless it smelled badly or was leaking something that burned me, it would go on their front step...


4. Photography Class 101. First exam. The slide show you are presenting is the wrong one. You accidentally left last weekend's party pics in the camera instead. The whole class is watching....

Did the professor actually say nudist slide shows were not acceptable?

5. You find your boss' wife on Facebook. She is obviously carrying on with another man in blatant fashion and behind his back. What is the first thing that pops into your head when you see your boss the next day at work?

Pops into my head?...well that would be "gee dude, you need to check out facebook"...but nothing leaves my lips

6. Your plane lands in the wrong vacation spot but you like this one better.

Can I switch reservations to this place without losing my money? Was I meeting any friends at the other place, cause then I am gone on my way there...

7. You walk out of the doctor's office. The news after your yearly checkup is very very good but the news for the person you'd been sitting beside and chatting with in the waiting room is very very bad. You see them in the elevator on the way out and they are in tears. You...

Offer them a tissue if I have one...nothing more


The Federal overseers have decided to visit the facility Nancy was to work at on Thursday and Friday... this means she can not do the open enrollment those days, so she is coming home early...GOOD NEWS!!!...bad news is that this will probably add another trip to her schedule... as these things do...changes are at hand...Nancy and the person she is working alongside were able to reschedule a third facility they were to service in two weeks, so they are staying until the end of the week...oh my!

  2. Mimi and her thinky questions!

     
  3. Mimi Lenox Says:
  4. Thank goodness Starr didn't say STINKY questions. That's the response I usually get.

    I loved your homeless man response and the FB dilemma is almost what I said except I would have suggested out loud that he check out FB's new privacy settings.

    Thanks for playing my "thinky" questions. lol

  8. 1. You start out on your road trip. You are 90 miles down the road with not a care in the world until you remember you forgot the most important ingredient needed for your vacation. What was it and would you turn around and go back to get it?

    Assuming I didn't forget my daughter, the most important would probably be my Camera. If it was just me I would turn around. If my hubby was there, he'd make me buy one.

    2. You are standing in the checkout line at the grocery store. A homeless man walks by and asks for food from your grocery cart. What would you do?

    Tell him no, I'm sorry. I do not like panhandlers either.


    3. The mailman delivers the wrong mail. It is your neighbor's. You can't stand your neighbor. You realize that inside the small brown package there must be something very secretive, very intriguing, and possibly incriminating. What do you do?

    Put it back in the mailbox with a note on it that it should go next door. We actually have this happen at work quite a bit and rather than go down the hall, ring the buzzer, etc. I just put it back in the box with the correct Suite number.


    4. Photography Class 101. First exam. The slide show you are presenting is the wrong one. You accidentally left last weekend's party pics in the camera instead. The whole class is watching....

    I act like it was planned and ask them to guess at the settings. Then quickly move on.

    5. You find your boss' wife on Facebook. She is obviously carrying on with another man in blatant fashion and behind his back. What is the first thing that pops into your head when you see your boss the next day at work?

    Touch one because I like and respect my boss very much. I would not want to see him hurt. I would find a way to tell him discreetly or lead him to the discovery.

    6. Your plane lands in the wrong vacation spot but you like this one better.

    Does my luggage arrive with me? I'll stay!

    7. You walk out of the doctor's office. The news after your yearly checkup is very very good but the news for the person you'd been sitting beside and chatting with in the waiting room is very very bad. You see them in the elevator on the way out and they are in tears. You...

    Play with my cell phone until the door opens. Too uncomfortable, though in my heart I know I should offer a shoulder and ear.

     
  9. TechnoBabe Says:
  10. For #1, I have a list and check off things before I get in the car and drive away.
    For #2, I would ask the homeless man how many people are with him and that I could share this amount with him after I pay for my groceries.
    For #3, We just recently had this happen and we went to the next cul-de-sac to the same address as ours but on the next street, knocked and no answer so we left package at their front door.
    For #4, Again, I follow my list. So I would have the correct items with me at class.
    For #5, I don't do facebook but during the few weeks I tried it out, if I found someone having an affair I would mind my own business and know sooner or later it will be come crashing down on the lame untrustworthy lying cheaters. Oh, got carried away.
    For #6, If I like it better, this is where I vacation.
    For #7, I smile at them and leave them to digest their news.
    I can tell by reading your answers, you are way more playful and not stuffy as I am!

     
  11. STAR: You said Thinky right?

    MIMI: I just could not push anyone to find out they are being cheated on, unless they were a very close friend.
    As long as they are 8 questions or less, I am game!

    LISA: Nice answers...

    TECHNOBABE: I have been told I am playful...yup!

     
  12. Vinny/Playful........nah.....not seein' it. *snort*

    You know, I think Nancy and southern living has brought out the best in you. Methinks your answers would have been slightly different if you still lived in the NE. Maybe, maybe not. You're still YOU. ;)
