The Woodstock Meme

Forty years ago this week, three days of peace, love and rock 'n roll (and mud) happened near Bethel, New York. It was the Summer of 1969.Attire: Hippie jeans. Long hair. Legal or illegal smoke. Psychedelic vibe.
The scene: You are at Woodstock. You go alone but meet up with a beautiful man/woman. You spend three days together.Put yourself inside the peace & love vibe. You can choose to be stoned or straight. I put it in the story for the sake of reality. Just don't inhale in this meme.
This is the conversation you have upon meeting or you can make it into what you overhear others say.

It makes no sense and has no continuity by design.
You must fill in the familiar blanks to finish the story. Some are song lyrics. You may use more than one word to fill in the blanks.

Oh! I forgot to tell you (must be the smoke in here) You have a new name. It must a combination of the first letter of your first name, the third letter of your middle name and the last letter of your last name.Peace out! Somebody might wanna turn on a fan in here.

1. "Hello, my groovy name is PNL". That's short for well, I don't know.
By the looks of those flowers in your hair, you must be a love child.
Didn't they tell you? No shoes allowed!

2. Come on, Baby, light my way to the dungeon. It is starting to look better than my answers.
When I lay me down to rest I pray the very best, for my sleeping bag to keep.
If I flip the light fantastic before I wake, I pray that I find my WAY home to take.
**puff puff**

3. Because the first time ever I saw your clothes, I realized that what the world needs now is cookies and sweet milk. Besides, I always feel guilty watching you do all the work when I should be groovin to the beat.
But I dig it!

4. Have I told you lately that I would like to sock it to you, sock it to you, sock it to you? Hey! Don't step on that mushroom, we might have to eat it !!
Dude. That guy is really weird but.....

5. There's a party in my sleeping bag and half a million of my BFF's friends are coming over tonight and we're gonna drink my baby off my mind. Darn the luck. It's raining toilet paper (s) and cigarette butts(s)
Luckily, Papa was a rolling stone editor and I'm on a first name basis with the cops.
**puff puff**

6. I'm really digging your groove but that shirt has got to go. Those flowers in your hair are beginning to smell like smoke, lots of smoke...ech...ech.
Have I told you lately that I dig you?
** puff puff**

Far Out...

7. I'm beginning to see dead people in those trees over there. Do you see it?
Out of all the millions of hippies here, you are the most outspoken one in the bunch.
But I dig it, man.
**puff puff**

8. I'd use all my blood, sweat and twinkies just to get next to your peace sign.
Love is free but I'd really like to buy that guy's love shack.
It says "Make paint for your body not your car. " Far out!

9. I'm grateful to be leavin 'cause there's a bad smell rising in Jefferson's Airplane. But that's okay, 'cause Joe Cocker said I could get by with a little money from my friends.

10. Oh, by the way, there is a house in New Orleans · They call the Risin' Sun · and it is on fire. But I dig it. I think I am headed for the Dungeon.

Peace and Faaaaaarrrr Oooouuuttttt!

How fun Pam.

I was a love child in San Francisco. It was a wonderful time in my young life. I'm so glad I experienced it.

Have a terrific day. :)

mielikki said...

Great answers, thanks for visiting mine. Maybe we can hang out in the dungeon sometime

Finding Pam said...

Sandee, You were really a love child? How cool and it sounds so radical because it was in San Francisc. Thanks for stopping by.
Have a good day.

Finding Pam said...

Mielikki, have you been in the dungeon? With Thom? Oh, my...

Thanks for stopping by and nice to meet you.

Finding Pam said...

Thom, you are so very naughty!
Thanks for stopping by. I am starting to think you really dig the dungeon. I am glad there is internet down there. ha ha

Lisa said...

Cute answers! This was a hard one to even try to make some sense out of, wasn't it? (Perhaps that was the point? Just "Stop making sense"?)

I like your blog - will definitely be back to visit. Thanks for stopping by ye olde snarkypants.

BTW: Arm porn = pictures of a certain someone who has awesome upper arms (coughDavidCookcough).

:-) Have a good day!

Akelamalu said...

Great answers Pam, they will surely keep you out of the dungeon!

Finding Pam said...

Lisa, Thank you for stopping by and leaving a comment.

I would call David Cook's arms, well, ARM CANDY. I like his voice, too. Thanks for the explanation.

It is nice to meet you. Pam

Finding Pam said...

I don't know Akelamula, did you read some of those answers? They were all fantastic and unique.

Mimi really has to get out of the castle more often or else she must have thought of these in the early hours of nothingness because this was hard to do.

Mouse said...

Thanks for stopping by my little House Pam, loving the love shack, but I now have the song by the B52s (I think) running round & round in my head :D

Mike Golch said...

Julia Smith said...

'Come on, Baby, light my way to the dungeon. It is starting to look better than my answers.' - LOL!

I love all of your Charlie Brown Woodstocks.

Finding Pam said...

Mouse, Tin roof rusted! Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

Slow down, you move to fast...
Da...da..da..dah...dah.. da da...feeling groovy....

Nice to meet you Mouse.

Finding Pam said...

Wow, Mike, what can I say? You sure have come through a lot of darkness, but "one day at a time" really does work".

I am an adult child of an alcholic and my hubs drinks, but he has no problem. Right?

Nice of you to take the time to comment. Have a good one, Mike.

Finding Pam said...

Thanks, Julia, though I am not sure if I am in the dungeon this week or not. This was just hard to think of any answers.

Our Queen has not made her rounds yet. We'll see what happens.
I wish I could get one of those special get out of the dungeon cards. How does that work?

Jean-Luc Picard said...

You're a real flower child, Pam! I think you'd fit right in with the 500,000.

Mark said...

Peace and groovy blessings!

Pam, when you have come back down to eart...the river In my post is definitely not in Wales which is part of Great Britain! Our Murray River is the largest in Australia and forms part of the border between NEW SOUTH WALES, a state bigger than Texas but we don't make a big deal of that, and Victoria. Two of the most highly populated states of Australia.

"sock it to me, sock it to me.." I haven't heard in a very long time.
You must have eaten those mushrooms doing this meme. That was hysterical. And I thought you said you weren't sure about this one.

Twinkies and peace signs cracked me up.

Nice one!

Mimi Lenox said...

I have a many hours of early nothingness, Pam...just sayin'. I truly do my best thinking after midnight. I hope I am not taxing the royal court with my questions. Next week I'm going for totally frivolous and silly. And no theme.
Can I do I?
Not sure. But I'll try.

You did a great job with this meme. Mielikkie wants to be in the dungeon? With HIM??!
I guess the rumors of hot tubs and fireplaces still abound in the blogosphere. I'll have to do something about that.

Mimi Lenox said...

I heard that Thom.

Finding Pam said...

Thanks Mimi for stopping by and commenting. Whew...I guess I did OK because you did not put me in the dungeon.

How do I get a dungeon pass? Just wondering?

I have many hours of nothingness, but it doesn't work out with my day job!

If Mielkki wants to be in the dungeon with HIM, then I say there must be something going on down there that you don't know about.

Finding Pam said...

Thanks Mark for dropping by and commenting.

That was so weird.
I was never a love child but I did own a VW bus that looked like it belonged to one.
