A Funky Meme From The Queen!

Well, I was clicking through my reader this morning and I came across this post from Mimi, The Queen of Memes and was instructed that if I read the post that I was to consider myself tagged. If you're not familiar with the dungeon, then you're lucky! Fortunately I have a temporary "free pass" from the queen herself since I am with child but it sure would be nice to get a lifetime amnesty from the queen to stay out of that dungeon forever!

1. Have you ever been in a funk? (ie: a mood)
Of course I have. Haven't we all?! It comes with the territory being a working mom, woman, wife, etc!

2. Describe your first funk. What were you doing when it first came upon you? It must've happened sometime when I was a teenager, and I'm sure it had something to do with a boy. *sigh*

3. Do you remember why you fell into a funk in the first place? See number 2.

4. How long did you stay in your funk?
Hmmm...probably 'till the next "catch" came along. ;)

5. Did you ever do or say anything during your sophisticated pity-party that you regretted? We all say things in the heat of the moment that we wish we could take back. Fortunately now that I am a bit older and wiser I think that the people that I would say such things to are very understanding and they can be worked through. It would be nice to be able to hit rewind from time to time, though wouldn't it?!

6. When you feel a funk coming on, is there someone you can call and talk to should you find yourself - Lord forbid - in the throes of a wild funk? What do they say to help you? Yeah, the local ice cream store! Heh heh heh...just kidding. It depends on what kind of funk it is, but usually I can get out of it by talking to friends and family and then there's always my wonderfully supportive BLOGOSPHERE! :)

7. While in the throes of a proper funk is it best to:
a. Close your eyes and hug trees in the forest til it's over
b. Drink Well, I would say EAT for now because I can't drink (alcohol that is)!
c. Throw a hissy fit
d. Curse
e. Have a fling with a passing truck driver
e. All of the above

8. Do you try to put on a happy face while you're funking? How's that working
for you? My moods can be read like an open book. Fortunately people know when to avoid me. :)

9. Do you have mood swings?
Hah! That's the funniest thing I've ever been asked?! YES!!!

10. Has severe funking ever caused you to injure yourself? time I threw a hissy fit and injured my hand by hitting the wall. Thankfully no one else was harmed in this fit! I was home alone. *LOL*

11. Do you take out your fancy funky frustrations on those you love when you're in a mood or is it best to be alone and make yourself miserable instead?
I wish I could answer NO to this question but the truth is that if I did, I'd be lying. Sometimes the wrath of a FUNKED mommy is taken out on those she loves.

12. If you saw someone having a funky fit in public would you....
a. call the blog police
b. lock up your children
c. offer to drive them to the nearest 12-step program
d. give them your Prozac
e. other suggestions? I'd probably join them!

13. Do you use unorthodox methods for dealing with your funk? Do you.....
a. change your purse
b. use humor
c. scream at the mailman just because
d. redecorate the dungeon cells
e. drink Green Tea
f. I eat!

14. Did you ever have a funk that lasted more than 7 days. How did you defunkify yourself? I think that I usually snap out my FUNKS pretty quickly. Usually I just keep telling myself that "This too shall pass."

I hope that your funk passes too, Mims. In the meantime I have no Prozac to offer, but I've got lots of good sugary treats that I'd be willing to share! That's a lot coming from a pregnant momma! ;)

Hey, lookie what I got in my inbox!! Whoo hoo. :)
Thanks, Queen Mimi.

Tish - I always has something to do with a boy. Wink.
A pregnant woman who doesn't have mood swings? Yeah. Dumb question. You really hurt your hand by hitting a wall? Remind me to stay out of your funky way....

"This too shall pass" is a cure all for most things in life. The older I get, the easier it is to say that and really mean it.

Enjoy your pass and take care of yourself. Thanks for playing!!

Can I have some ice cream now?

IT always has something to do with a boy. Proofreading would help.

Great job on this meme. I'm glad Mimi have you your amnesty card. Congratulations. She did say something about some small print, so I'm waiting to see what that entails. I see she did give you the same warning. Have a wonderful Sunday. :)
