The Queen's Meme #21 ~ The Wisdom At Twenty-One Meme


Welcome to The Queen's Tuesday Meme #21



Sometimes silly. Sometimes serious.
Always fun!
Step out of the box. Be creative.
Use your imagination.
No one's answers are quite like yours.


Once upon a time in a faraway Bloggiverse there lived a maiden named Queen Mimi Pencil Skirt. She slayed her own dragons, stoked her own fire and well.....wrote memes by the light of the Bloggingham moon. One day a kind blogger from England noticed her meme lovin' ways and royally crowned her Mimi Queen of Memes. As time passed in the peaceful kingdom of Bloggingham, her Royal Highness found comfort in the company of fellow bloggers who also loved memes. But the Queen had a wicked disposition too. It is widely reported in historical Blogosphere archives that any and all bloggers found guilty of not completing their memes were promptly thrown into the dreaded Bloggingham dungeon. If I were you, I'd do the meme.


The Queen's Meme #21 ~ The Wisdom At 21 Meme
This is a royal twist on an old meme. I just wish I'd found these gems when I was actually twenty-one.This is how it works: You must follow the directions to the letter.

1. Find the nearest bookshelf of your favorite reads, cookbooks, tech books, magazines. It doesn't matter. This will work for all print media. If you don't have seven books lined up on a shelf, grab the first seven you see around the house.

2. Book #1: Turn to page 21. Read the 21st sentence (you may have to turn the page).
Write it down.
3. Do the same with the first seven books or articles you see. The sentences will make a paragraph. You must write them down in the order you found them. 4. When you are finished, read over your "story" and title it.
5. Show us your bibliography at the end of this meme. Hmmm...I wonder if we'll be surprised at the reading material we may find. I just did mine. It was rather shocking! I didn't cheat. I promise! Don't you either....or it's you-know-where for you.




Birds Of A Feather


"It went down the hill and T.P. was fighting by himself and he fell down again. Observers can nearly always identify a bird without reference to molt, but a basic understanding of molt can be helpful for determining the age of a bird, for assessing plumage variation, and for identification.
Anyway it's really too slick to go out. So it's no wonder that people in the sector have such a hard time focusing long enough to think long term. They had invaded country after country in many bloody wars, but now the whole empire was at peace. With self-discipline it is just the opposite. Clay's last phone call from Tigger had been a gut-wrenching plea from the kid for money."


1. The Sound and The Fury by William Faulkner
2. The Sibley Guide to Birds by David Allen Sibley
3. The Shack by William Paul Young
4. Begging For Change by Robert Egger
5. Let Me Tell You About My Savior by Maria von Trapp
6. The Book of Virtues by William J. Bennett
7. The King of Torts by John Grisham

Wow that is interesting. I've never heard of doing such a thing and those words all together, from those different books, made a unique sort of sense.

"They had invaded country after country in many bloody wars, but now the whole empire was at peace. With self-discipline it is just the opposite"

"Anyway it's really too slick to go out. So it's no wonder that people in the sector have such a hard time focusing long enough to think long term." I can relate to this because it is what we are going through right now, slick roads so have to stay in so it becomes hard to think and focus. I think I have cabin fever.

An ecclectic mix that worked well!!

Mimi Lenox said...

Oh...that was interesting....the part about peace and war and the opposite occurring. Hmmmm....I thought this meme might be cumbersome for people but I'm really enjoying reading these paragraphs. I hope you are too.

Peace,
Mimi
