Monday Mayhem ~ Random Stupid Question Meme

Welcome to

Monday Mayhem
hosted by Harriet of Harriet and Friends.

I know this is Sunday afternoon;
I just thought I’d start early and get the mayhem out of the way first.

Todayโ€™s meme is called:

The Random Stupid Question Meme

1. What do you think would happen if the sun were to rise in the west and set in the east one day?
We would all be dead or dying from whatever cataclysm had precipitated the change. (My mate is a scientist, what can I say?)

2. Are you tired of everyone talking about New Years resolutions when you know darn well they have no chance with them?
Nope. I tell them my resolution (not to make resolutions) and they go away and leave me alone. Of course, they think I’m a pompous ass, but the trade-off is pretty much worth it. ๐Ÿ˜‰

3. What is the most repeated meme question around?
I have just started joining memes so I have yet to learn — ask me again in a month or two. ๐Ÿ˜‰

4. Coke or Pepsi?
Dr. Pepper, actually.

5. What should we do about kids screaming and running around in stores?
Execute whomever brought them to the store and failed to supervise them.

6. Ever write graffiti (messages on walls)? If so what did you write?
When I was a teen my favorite thing to write on bathroom walls was: Please don’t write on the bathroom walls.

7. Is there really a “fat gene” or is that a figment of my excuses imagination?
All my genes are fat.

8. Do you know of anyone or have you been subjected to anyone who thinks they can sing but cannot? What is a good way to get out of letting that person continue to sing in our presence?
For me, all I have to do is sing along with them. They shut up to get me to shut up.

9. Are you happy that the “holidays” are over?
Yes. I want my routine back!

10. What is the best thing about January?
The days start getting longer!

  1. BWAHAHA on 8. Only when I sing everyone else clears up. It’s like someone yelled out “FIRE” LOL Indeed it will be good to get back to a routine. ๐Ÿ™‚ Good answers…I’m looking up the definitions for 1 go figure ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I’m wondering what my new “routine” is…

    I don’t mind when people who can’t sing do… because I’M the one who CAN’T and all my friends at church not only ALLOW me to, they ENCOURAGE me!!! I soooooo LOVE my church!!!

    All my genes are fat too — but my JEANS are getting skinnier!

  3. January isn’t my favorite month, but that is one thing I like about it, that the days are starting to get a bit longer.

    I haven’t heard much talk of resolutions — I’ve read them on blogs but haven’t heard it in everyday life. And the ones I have seen are so generalized there’s little hope of getting anywhere with them, but I won’t tell them that. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Barbara — shhh, don’t tell anybody, but I was giving the meme writer a hard time because on her blog she wrote about resolutions and I left her my “the only resolution I have never broken was the one I made vowing to never again make resolutions” answer. I was just being “Thom”.

  4. I am so glad I found your blog. I really love your answers to this weeks questions. Your wit jumped out at me on what started off as a much dreaded day. I love when the holidays end, but I despise the first day back to work, kids to school etc. etc. Your answer to number eight cracked me up and I had to call my husband and one of my kids over to my laptop to read it. I am AND I am repeatedly told that I am the worst singer. I just cannot carry even a simple tune; my deaf daughter can carry a tune better than I can (no kidding). Your answer is hilarious. I am also a big DP drinker, but hey, I am new to this & didn’t know I could write in add ons,lol. I got a kick out of your answer to number 7 as well. It reminded me of how I tell my family every year during the holidays that the cleaners keep shrinking my clothes and I’ll be darned if the retail stores didn’t start skimping on material in an effort to cut their cost, hence my normal size clothing seldom fits.

    I look forward to reading more of your work. Thanks for the break from a mundane Monday morning.

  5. Diet Dr Pepper is better than the original methinks. I agree on the kid screamer parents. Uugh I hate being in a store and being forced to listen to that. LOL @ your genes. : ) Mine are too. Even after stomach surgery, mine are fighting to come back. Hope you had a terrific new years weekend Quilly!

  6. I like Diet Cherry Dr. Pepper. The cherry/vanilla was even better. Wonder why they quit making it?

    Back to the routine is good…too bad it’s so cold!
