The Queen's Meme #104 - The Birthday Meme

Welcome to The Queens's Meme
7 Royal Questions on Tuesday

Someone in the castle is having a birthday today. Homer says it's not him. Who, oh who, could it be?!
Whether or not it's your birthday, you should be able to answer these age-related questions. Sounds like fun, eh? Or not. I'm going to talk to the birthday girl. She needs a good talking to.

1. If you could turn back the hands of time, where would you go? Have you and the Saturday 9 writer been in cahoots this week? I just answered a very similar question to this... I would relive 28 June 2009 - my day in Yellowstone National Park with David trying to fit in so many things to see - I took over 900 images in that one day! It was the most incredible magical day ever!

2. What was your favorite age and why?  Interesting question! I have to say that despite the poor health and issues, every year I experience now and for the last six years were my favourite. I was an unhappy child, a very tortured teenager and an unsure 20-year-old. Searching for the perfect job and never finding it made a lot of my 20s and 30s difficult. And then, suddenly, when I was 37, everything suddenly hit just right - I found the greatest job, I was an experienced EMT, I had a lovely house and husband and two great and happy (albeit old) cats, and life was perfect. Since then, good things, bad things, things as a whole are easier to deal with and I did for five years have Nirvana; but while I have to adjust to not working at all, I still feel very happy about my life and my full 43 years.


3. Travel into the future 10 years. How do you picture your life? It is hard to say - I hope by then that a miracle would happen for a cure to muscular dystrophy, however unlikely it is. But that is hope, and a different question would apply. I envision myself looking close to the same, being a little more impaired, but traveling and doing everything that is possible. I still see myself reading, blogging, writing, organising the house, still doing my art, still visiting my father and having close friends. I still see myself doing things on the First Aid squad. By then we will have bought two more ambulances besides the one we are working on now, and I will be a pro at this!


4. Did you ever take part in a birthday surprise? Tell us about it. I have helped arrange a surprise party and that was okay, but I am at best an unenthusiastic party planner and I enjoyed more the role of taking the person out and keeping them busy until it is time to surprise them - that was fun and very easy for me (usually that seems to be the hardest part of the whole thing). Other than that, I haven't had much experience with this.


5. Pretend it is your ultimate birthday party. What five people, living or dead, would you invite? Oh, how cool is that?! I love questions like this! I would invite Andy Rooney, Ben Franklin, Madeleine L'Engle, Leonard Nimoy and Bono to my party, but then I would want to invite others, too, so I would need to get a pass to do this every year! Next year it would be Charles M. Schultz, Monsignour Georges Méliès, Anne McCaffrey, Judy Blume, Chris Martin and - oh, that is five already. You see what I mean. Even if I live to be 99, I'd still find five people to invite every year, all different ones. I'd invite Attila the Hun, too, but the lingual issues might make it impossible, since the man lived in 434 to 453 and spoke a form of Turkish distantly related to Danube Bulgarian. That might complicate matters a lot!
 

6. Let's have cake!  Forget about candles and flavors and balloons. Who jumps out? Um, can we get the really good-looking cop from the Rockaway Police who was at the mall today? What a lovely butt he had! If not, let me think... who is a hottie now? Um... (so many choices!) how about Pierce Brosnan? Maybe Colin Firth? Yes! That's it - Colin Firth! He can be a guest, too, as he is a wonderful actor and very likeable as himself, but that would not be at the same party that he pops out of the cake. I also would not ask him to be so undignified as to do it in something terrible like a thong - he can jump out in whatever he'd like! I'd be happy no matter what!


7. And finally, make a wish but not just any ole' wish. Make it count. Well, yes. But needn't I keep it to myself for it to come true?

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, QUEEN MIMI!
