I curtsy to The Queen's Meme

I dare to answer The Queen's questions today in "The Back to Fools Meme." The Queen presents us with this quiz "for those quietly insane adults hanging around after the kids have returned to school." My kids are still home, but I'll try and type this post as they circle around me :)

  1. Do you know your primary colors? Describe for me, if you will, the colors red, blue and green to a blind person.

    My response:
    Red is a dramatic burst of energy. Blue is like a cool summer's breeze. Green is Nature's symphony.

  2. What was your adult summer reading?

    My response: Job listings and board game directions for some off the wall kid games. My "Mommy sanity please read me pile" of books is calling me each night.

  3. When you assembled your clothes last night for today's activities - you did do that, didn't you? - what did you choose to wear?

    My response: I gracefully chose the outfit sitting on top of my clean laundry basket. Maybe tomorrow I'll put on my ballgown :)

  4. What's in your lunchbox?

    My response: A brownie with a PB&J sandwich on the side. Don't tell Jillian Michaels!

  5. Imagine that your teacher is your fantasy crush. What would you bring her/him on the first day of school? Hmmmmm???

    My response: Okay, I need a minute to compose myself. Hugh Jackman teaching biology. I would definitely pass that exam! I would bring him a microphone so I could hear that accent from the back of the room.

  6. No rest for the weary. Your child's teacher just called. A big ole' bully knocked your precious one into a locker for no good reason at all.
    What is your response to the principal?

    My response: "Great job with that anti-bullying campaign. Ha!"

  7. You have been given a pair of scissors, a glue stick and copy of Entertainment Weekly. Whose picture do you cut out and who do you glue to your headboard?

    My response: I bet you all think you know the answer. LOL. I take the fifth.

  8. TEN POINT BONUS QUESTION! Now that you have time to watch all those Gilligan's Island reruns, tell me....What was the Professor really doing with Mary Ann all that time they were lost in the jungle?

    My response: The tango...trigonometry...swapping clothes....hmmmm
And The Queen shared the following uplifting quote for all to ponder:
"If there were no schools to take the children away from home part of the time, the insane asylums would be filled with mothers." - Edgar W. Howe

Enjoy your Tuesday everyone! This was fun.

Jamie said...

Well I cut out his picture and put it right up there for everyone to see. I guess I'm your Physiology lab partner.

Kitten said...

Ahhh, you answered Mr. Jackman as well. I didn't participate this week, because I couldn't think of a cool answer for the colors question, but you did an admirable job!

The Queen will be rawther proud of you!

Debster said...

Great answers. I love the Professor and Maryann swapping clothes. I hope she was wearing the daisy duke cutoffs when they disappeared.

Hugh Jackman is yummy like the brownie you packed!


Michelle said...

Those are some tough questions. Sadly, my answers would probably be very different. :)

And ohhhh if only both my wee ones were in school right now!

Mimi Lenox said...

Great answers from a brand new player. Welcome!
This will surely keep you out of the dungeon.

P.S. Hugh Jackman teaching biology...I like.

Hyacynth said...

You may be sarcastic, my friend, but you're darn funny. I bet they were doing the tango, too ... :)

The Write Girl said...

This is quite funny Septembermom. Loved the responses. Nicely done here :)

Randi said...

Ooh, I loved your answers for red, blue and green. Perfectly explained. Gosh, I have no idea who you would pick for #7. :)

Caroline said...

Oh I loved reading this! Love the quote too...I agree 100%

Angela said...

What a way to start my morning, by smiling at this post! What a fun read. The brownine in your lunch box is proof that we were meant to be friends. ;)

Anonymous said...

ooooo hugh jackman is nice. mine would have been johnny depp... this looks fun, i may have to try one of these meme's!

T Rex Mom said...

I am totally hankering to put on my ballgown too. Alas, it's not clean at the moment! Off to eat a brownie and some PB and J!

Thanks for the smiles today and I hope the "read me" pile starts shrinking soon.

Robyn Campbell said...

Kelly, loved your list. You had me chuckling all the way through. And I would choose the clothes that were on top of the clean laundry, if there was clean laundry. :) Oh, and ballgowns itch me. :)

Hugs to you my sweet friend.

Kim said...

Brownie and PB&J - this is all I ever think about these days. I don't know who said that breastfeeding makes you lose weight. Lies. I just want to eat all the time and not salad either!

Teresha@Marlie and Me said...

You answers are terrific! You may have a second calling as a stand-up comic. I love the quote at the end. I'm showing it to my husband. He doesn't understand why I beg him to have me committed.

Jenners said...

I loved your answers to these!! (especially the one with the brownie). Your color descriptions were right on too!

Susan Fobes said...

I liked this one, especially your answer to question #1. Oh and my guy would be Collin Firth or Hugh Grant, and the accents are most of the draw!

He & Me + 3 said...

Those were great answers. Cracking up at the professor and Mary ann question and your description of the primary colors was amazing.

Betty Manousos@Cut and Dry said...

Those were brilliant answers!
cracking up at#10.. made me smile!

Have a great day!

B xx
