The Evil Panty Meme Rides Again

Um, so, this one time on Twitter…I may have thought it was a REALLY good idea to harass one of my friends into creating an evil panty meme. Hey, it felt like the right thing for a Tuesday morning. Being that all of my friends on Twitter are AWESOME, she obliged. (I’m talking about @MichelleSimkins, so totally twitter stalk follow her.)

And then…oh, yes, she tagged yours truly. And that was a SHAMEFUL two almost three months ago, and holy guac am I red in the face.

It’s only fair that I (FINALLY) post the underoo wonderoo, er, evil panty meme! Be sure to stop by Michelle’s blog ‘green woman’ for more of her super fab posts.

So here it is, the already infamous panty meme. The rules are, of course, copy the questions, answer them, and tag others to do the same.

What do you call your panties/underwear/undergarments? Do you have any commonly used nicknames for them?

I refer to my undergarments as undies. Yes, I am in my twenties and I’m not actually five. No, I am not ashamed. UNDIES FTW!

Have you ever had that supposedly common dream of being in a crowded place in only your underwear?

I wish, er, wait that came out wrong. I’m usually in “le buff” wondering what the hell I drank, and where, OH WHERE are my shoes?!

What is the worst thing you can think of to make panties out of?

Spiders. Big. Dead. Spiders. Gargantuan tarantulas. MILLIONS OF THEM. Go on and scream with me.

If you were a pair of panties, what color would you be, and WHY?

Can I say invisible? Not like, peek-a-boo butt cheek kind-of-invisible, but OMG her legs are detached, how is that torso walking, and why-is-she-terrorizing-the-neighbors invisible. What do you mean invisible’s not a color?!

Have you ever thrown your panties/underwear at a rock star or other celebrity? If so, which one(s)? If not, which one(s) WOULD you throw your panties/underwear at, given the opportunity?

NEVER! maybe james franco NO ONE! maybe james franco VICTORIA NEEDS TO KEEP HER SECRETS!!!!! maybe james franco

You’re out of clean panties. What do you do?

Whip out a sewing box, grab scissors, find a sacrificial shirt and get to work. These are all lies, naturally. I don’t sew.

Are you old enough to remember Underoos? If so, did you have any? Which ones?

Sadly, no, no, and no. But I did google them, and I’m going to have a talk with my mother. I COULD HAVE BEEN WONDER WOMAN!!

If you could have any message printed on your panties, what would it be?

I’m not sure, but I’ll tell you one thing: if a guy I’m dating EVER has a message on his undies boxers that says “welcome to the jungle” I’ll probably be terrified. For MULTIPLE reasons.

How many bloggers does it take to put panties on a goat?

Three. One to grab the back legs. One to man the panties. And one to document the phuckery for Youtube while peeing her panties. 

If you’re still reading my answers, consider yourself tagged! And then let me know on twitter, or here when you post your answers. Keep the evil panty meme alive!

Oh, and just because I’m not “officially” tagging anyone doesn’t mean your time isn’t coming…

The evil panty meme is like a ninja lurking in the night. You have been warned.

Examiner Article below:

Fans of the hit NBC television show America’s Got Talent have already been privy to the subject of today’s article: the uber-talented songstress, Rachel Zamstein. Examiner.comfirst introduced you to this artist in April of 2010, and since our last report, a lot of good things have been happening for the twenty-six year old Connecticut native.

In a heart pounding decision, the judges on America’s Got Talent voted in favor of sending Zamstein to Vegas in a two-one tally. It was a good decision. From the wildly enthusiastic response of the audience – she is obviously already a crowd pleaser. The only judge who didn’t feel Rachel was ready just yet was Howie Mandel. And he’s probably just bitter about her awesome head of hair.

Zamstein is blowing up all over the internet with support and early predictions of her going all the way in the competition. Which is more than deserved, as she’s been working on her musical talents for most of her life. She exudes a genuine warmth and vulnerability that make you want to pull for her. And really, she’s got the singing chops to pull off winning easily. Be sure to check her music out, and show your support for her by watching the show.

If you’d like to learn more about her, check out her new band Lily Red’s website. They’re  currently in the studio, so lot’s of good things are expected to be happening there.

Blog that sparks MY soul!

Holy Helvetica, I’m so darn honored you guys! The wonderful (and super talented author pal of mine) Anita Grace Howard, has bestowed my humble site with the ‘Blog That Sparks the Soul Award.’ Here’s what she said on her blog last week that warmed my heart:

Also, I’d like to thank Kerri Maniscalco for her blog of many hats: Write. Eat. Repeat. — a place of peace, inspiration, and witticisms.

So to show my gratitude, I’m bestowing her this:”

Thanks so much for saying all those wonderful things Anita! If you all haven’t followed her yet on twitter, do so now! Her handle is @aghowardwrites. Not only does Anita run a mighty fine blog herself, if you’re a writer, she’s probably cheered you on in the query trenches on querytracker.net. If you’re a part of that community, then you already know her as, raven1.

Stop by her blog A Still and Quiet Madness. She’s always got something wonderful going on there. You won’t be disappointed!

Happy #WW (Writers Wednesday) to her and all of YOU out there. For good measure, here’s a quote:

In everyone’s life, at some time, our inner fire goes out.  It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being.  We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit.” ~Albert Schweitzer

PS One of these days soon I’m going to figure out some fun awards and pass them along too! <33333333333333

So in honor of all YOU faithful readers, todays post is all yours. Here are some fun quotes for all you tweeps who make my heart beat three sizes larger, a whopping 365 days a year.

  • Let us be grateful to people who make us happy, they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom. Marcel Proust

It’s all fun and games until someone accidentally eats grandpa.
