Continued - 20 Questions Meme...

Please go and take a look over at Michelle's blog at Raw Cool...Black is the new blog...

Michelle picked up my earlier challenge of choosing the 4th photo in your 4th album, etc, and has picked some beautifully clear and story-telling photographs of her friends, family and daily life! Really lovely, and I feel as if I'm there! Thank you, Michelle!

Following on from yesterday's 20 Questions Meme, here are the remaining 20 - I hope you enjoy them, and I have no probs if anyone wants to pinch owt from them!

(Translation - Please feel free to pick and choose any or all of the Meme questions to illustrate your own blog, and for those rare 'brainless days!')

I do wonder whether I'm letting too much of myself to be seen, but I probably don't care. I don't always hold with all that Astrology stuff, yet I am a true Saggitarian - Saggitarius Pictures, Images and Photos Always with one hoof firmly in my mouth, and pretty much 'Speak as I find...', i.e. you need to take me at face value, because I am an honest and a very truthful person - I don't dissemble well, look at my face if you want to know what I am thinking! And I rarely lie, unless it's a very gentle lie that will hurt no-one. 'Nuff said?! Then on, MacDuff!

Voila - the remaining 20, very hypothetical, question-ees!

21. One night you wake up because you heard a noise. You turn on the light to find that you are surrounded by MUMMIES. The mummies aren’t really doing anything, they’re just standing around your bed. What do you do?


If they're not doing anything, or planning to do anything, I would lie very still meself, as if mummified, holding my breath, and hope they go away... with my lung capacity, they've got about a minute at most!

22. You have George W. Bush and Osama bin Laden locked in a small room together. It's airtight so both the guys are gonna suffocate anyway, but what amusing weapon do you give them to make it more entertaining?

Sex and Violence - Has this Meme been set by Quentin Tarantino??! Photobucket

Weapon = A table leg...

23. Photobucket The Angel of Death has descended upon you. Fortunately, the Angel of Death is pretty cool and in a good mood, and it offers you a half-hour to do whatever you want before you bite it. Whatcha gonna do in that half-hour?

Spend time with my family and say all that needs to be said...

24. Truthfully, what underwear are you currently wearing?

White bra, can't remember what I grabbed out of the laundry pile, but it will be M & S cotton 'granny knickers'!Photobucket Hello, hello, is anyone still out there?!

25. You accidentally eat some radioactive vegetables. They were good, and what’s even cooler is that they endow you with the super-power of your choice! What’s it gonna be?

The ability to remove suffering in the best possible way... (Right, I am ready for my Miss Universe tiara and orb now...)

26. You can re-live any point of time in your life. The time-span can only be a half-hour, though. What half-hour of your past would you like to experience again?

Tricky question, that one... Best experience would be the birth of my son - I was elated, and no drugs in sight, and what I felt at that moment was overwhelming enchantment and spell-binding love that would surmount all other loves. Of course, he's a teenager now, so I've come to me senses!

27. Moses trips on his robe and drops the stone tablets (Moses sounds as clumsy as I am!). Commandment number eleven is broken off. He leaves it there as his back is killing him (...ditto!). What does it say?

"Though shalt not covet not Paris Hilton's (or any other Zeleb's fake-tan, or fake anything! Thou shalt be true to thine own self..."

28.You can erase any horrible experience from your past. What will it be?

Did you read the one about the bullying manager yesterday? That one! Or, even better: The root cause of my back problems, I believe in any case, is an accident I had at work when I was fresh out of University. I didn't have a proper workstation and I did not know about Health and Safety and so on, and I wrenched my back very badly so I could not move well for months.

I have been suffering episodes of this kind every couple of years for the past 20+ years which I think all stem from that experience - So if I could take that away from the sum of my life, I think I would have led a more active, and less fearful, existence, and I would not be off work now...
Hey ho...

29. Rufus reappears with the time machine and a custard pie. Who's gonna get it?

Bullies at school - Yes, or that ratty manager in Question 3 yesterday...

30. You got kicked out of the country for being a time-travelling heathen who sleeps with celebrities and has super-powers. But you can move to anywhere else in the world! What country are you going to live in now?

Predictably, France...

31. What part of your body would you change (no, you are NOT perfect; you gotta answer this one) and why?

Fat content..

32. You have been eternally banned from every single bar in the world except for ONE. Which one is it gonna be?

Our local, The Shoulder of Mutton... Good beer, great fire, nice food, friendly staff!

33. What's the last thing you ate?

Boiled egg and bread fingers, fresh from the new bread-making machine I bought GJ for his birthday last week! Selfish, moi?!


34. Hopefully you didn’t mention this in the super-powers question…. If you did, then we’ll just expand on that. Suddenly, you have gained the ability to float. Who are you going to show this to first?

Photobucket My friends, the sea otters!

35. The constant absorption of magical moonbeams mixed with the radioactive vegetables you consumed earlier has given you the ability to resurrect the dead celebrity of your choice. So which celebrity will you bring back to life?

Photobucket Albrecht Duerer.

Photobucket 36. The Celestial Gates of Beyond have opened, much to your surprise because you didn’t think such a thing existed. Death appears. As it turns out, once again Death is actually a pretty cool entity, and happens to be in a fantastic mood. Death offers to return the friend/family-member/person, etc. of your choice to the living world. Who will you bring back?

After yesterday's experience, and the quiet of my house today, if it were an animal, it would be this one, Photobucket

In all reality, and because I would not wish to choose from either of my own departed parents, who waited long enough to be together wherever they are... I would elect to bring back Mad Asthmatic, Emma Bearfoot, bloggeur extraordinaire to her parents... For no child should outlive her parents.

37. What’s your theme song?

All your life you've never seen a woman...
Taken by the sky...
Would you stay if she promised you heaven?
Would you even try?


Dreams unwind
Love's a state of mind
Dreams unwind
Love is hard to find...



38 When did you last have sex?

39. Buffy, Willow or Xander?


Van Helsing! Next to Dave Grohl (see yesterday), Mr Jackman comes a close second in my books!

40. Who’s up next?


And just as a post-script, it seems as if yesterday was silent reading poetry day across pockets of Blogland, and so as not to miss that boat, here is one of my favourites... Hope you like it...

My soul is an enchanted boat,

Which, like a sleeping swan, doth float
Upon the silver waves of thy sweet singing;

And thine doth like an angel sit
Beside a helm conducting it,
Whilst all the winds with melody are ringing.

It seems to float ever, forever,
Upon that many-winding river,
Between mountains, woods, abysses,
A paradise of wildernesses!

Till, like one in slumber bound,
Borne to the ocean, I float down, around,
Into a sea profound of ever-spreading sound.

by Shelley

You're a far better person than I... my super power TOTALLY would have been to fly OR to turn invisible (and I'd eat more radioactive veg to make both happen!)

A Woman Of No Importance said...

Diane, as I said, I am after the orb, crown and sash - I have bad ulterior motives! I would be terrified of flying, and I would still be clumsily knocking things over even if invisible, so a Mother Teresa style intervention, is much more me! x

Suldog said...

38 - Lot of that going around. As for my superpower, it would involve being able to change the shape of any one body part, at any time, at will. I won't say which one, but if you want to use your imagination, it might help that #38 thing.


Those mummies are scary! I'm liking the Shelly and the art man playing with his wee little sailing boat :) TFx

jinksy said...

Loved the Shelly poem and pic.
As for superpowers, I'give everyone ESP (with a damp down option for privacy) in the hope that the peoples of Earth would acheive a better understanding of each other.

Cynthia said...

What a challenge! I loved the "hoof in the mouth bit", funny.

carma said...

Granny knickers! I love your honesty. Didn't realize you have a teenage son, too! BTW MA's last name is "Bearfoot." I love that you mentioned her in your post. Have you checked her site recently. Her dad posted some words and a picture. Very touching.

A Woman Of No Importance said...

Carma, thank you for the kind correction - I had read Emma's dad's post and saw the photos, so sad, and which prompted me to this thought during the Meme - I had not known Emma long, hence me mixing her surname up with a stained glass artist friend of a friend, called Sylvia Bearpark... V. sorry, and thanks so for keep on dropping by, I really appreciate it! x

A Woman Of No Importance said...

Suldog: You are living up to your dog of a name! You cheeky thing, you...

TOM FOOLERY: Glad you like the art work - The chalk artistry is just stunning - I can't remember his name, but it is mind-bogglingly good!

jinksy: Nice one!

Cynthia: "Hoof in the mouth", that's very me!

Michelle said...

Hey Fhina thank you for the shout out!!!

Now, i must be totally honest with you, the first question about mummies with the photo of said mummies scared the bejesus out of me....now i have an image of mummies coming to get me!!!


It's ok I will put my ipod on and think good thoughts!!!! I love your answer to #38. Made me giggle!!!


Anonymous said...

The Angel of Death image was very intriguing! I love your post style, Very engaging! Made my night actually.


Kate Coveny Hood said...

Seems that you can answer ANY question. I'm stumped by the mummies. Truthfully - I think I might just die of fright.

I love the Linda Carter/Wonder Woman visual. Brought back many good memories of TV viewing from my childhood. But I feel like I must point out that her only real "Super power" if you could call it that - would be changing outfits by spinning. Otherwise she just had really powerful accessories (bracelets, tiara, lasso and who could forget the invisable jet???)

A Woman Of No Importance said...

Michelle: Somehow I expected more from a NY gal - Scared of mummies, sheesh, with all your running skills and lung capacity! Think calm thoughts, M, take care!

CLAY: I am glad you liked the angel artwork, I love the imagery (and of course the brilliant writing and storytelling!) on your blogs!) To have you, such a compelling writer, say that I made your evening has really made my day, thankyou!

Kate Coveny Hood: I aim to please! What you say about Linda Carter as Wonder Woman is very interesting and maybe I should have just wished for the ability to twirl, or spin, convincingly - I hadn't realised, but it also seems to have worked for Stevie Nicks!!!

...And don't we girls all know how powerful accessories make the outfit pop?! Tee hee!

A Woman Of No Importance said...

And, my Triskaidekaphobia kicks in again... xxx
