Girl Talk

First, I guess we need some appropriate music...


I thought I'd managed to escape the Panty Meme; honestly, I did. For the past few days, I’ve held my breath while digging through my subscriptions—creeping just under the estrogen radar. Around me, my fellow bloggers were being inducted into some kind of goat-worshipping cult. It was horrifying.

Then I was called to join them.

Yes, I was “panty tagged” by the fabulously talented Lisa Regan.

A meme, according to Merriam-Webster, is “an idea, behavior, style, or usage that spreads from person to person within a culture”.
So, basically, we’re dealing with some kind of blog STD, minus the “S” and “D”. Got it. Here we go: 

This is what happens when I procrastinate writing post in the middle of the night.
1. What do you call your panties / underwear / undergarments? Do you have any commonly used nicknames for them?

I call them undies. Oh, and in my MS, I refer to someone who has nearly “shat her Vicki-Secrets”.

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

Hah! Undies would be a luxury in my nightmares. 

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

Glitter. Seriously, that stuff never goes away.

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

Black and lace. Stealthy and sexy.

5. 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?

You guys have been killing me with your answers to this one. For the record, I have never thrown my undies at a celebrity and I have no intentions of ever doing so. That’s creepy, awkward, and gross. Also, we pay good money for those things. Why should we waste it on some pretty boy? (Or, let’s be honest, said pretty boy's event staff.)

If I must pick a celebrity: Nathan Fillion.
…Don’t judge me. :P

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

Who wrote this meme and why do they run out of clean panties? Does this really happen to people?

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

I remember Underoos at the end of their fame, but I didn't have any.

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

“One Way. Do Not Enter.” That requires an explanation, doesn't it? Well, once upon a time, I found one of those street signs and it struck me as particularly funny. (Like, stop to point and snicker funny.) Being the silly girl that I am, I assumed a special pose with the sign to mark the occasion.

Unfortunately, that's when I heard the click of my sister's camera.
The phrase has lived in infamy ever since.

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

…See, this is what I meant by cult-like.

Probably more bloggers than we have in our fun little community. Honestly, I think we’d all stand around laughing and never truly recover. ;)

Tag time! I initiate choose:

Have fun, ladies!

Question for the comments: What is/was your favorite pair of undies like? I'm asking you too, guys. This post is already awkward. We might as well have fun with it. :P


Leah said...

You slay me, m'dear! I'll have fun with this one on Friday, for sure.

As for your prying question, which I'm going to pretend to be bashful about? My favorite pair of undies are, absolutely, lace boyshorts of any variety. I'm pretty sure I currently own every style available for purchase. Flattering as hell, and comfy to boot.

linda said...

Sigh. Ok, my answers to the meme are here. They're not nearly as interesting as yours, though.

As for favorite underwear? I say black and lacy, too. :)

Laila Knight said...

LOL. Goat-worshipping cult? I love that. And your sister was hilarious taking a picture of you while you were doing do no enter, etc. That goes back to saying, be careful what you do in public. :)

Lisa Regan said...

Hilarious post. You are so right about the glitter! People give my kid birthday cards with glitter on them and then it takes me a month to get rid of it all.

Carrie Butler said...

@Leah - Fantastic! Have fun! Oh, and I'm so inclined to agree with you on that one. :)

@Linda - Great taste! Thank you for accepting the tag, despite your reservations. May we all suffer together. ^_~

@Laila - Thanks! Oh, it was hilarious for a few days, but then I just wanted to rip the photo (and its copies) from her possession. lol

@Lisa - Thank you! Oh my goodness, yes. People should know better than to give kids:
A) Things with glitter
B) Things that make noise! ;)

Jeff King said...

HA--nice, thx for sharing!

Anonymous said...

Like I told Lisa, I think I'll plead the Fifth on this one and save a more insightful comment for later. hehe.

Carrie Butler said...

@Jeff - Thank you! It takes a brave man to comment after reading something like that. ;)

@Bryce - Hah! You know, I just can't blame you. Thanks for stopping by! :)

“One Way. Do Not Enter.”


Carrie Butler said...

Oops! Sorry for the mental images, Donna. My next post will be tame, I promise. ;) Thanks for stopping by!

Dee Fox said...

*sings* "I still have the picture!!!" also, I must add in, that as your older sister I was around for the Underoos and before you were born I rocked the Wonder Woman set I had!! ( much as any 3 year old can rock a set of :)

Carrie Butler said...

Dee, burn it.

No? Okay, I tried. :P I'm sure your Wonder Woman Underoos were awesome. (How embarrassing for you to admit that on the internet!) Hah! I kid. <3

Lynda R Young as Elle Cardy said...

lol, so funny. I'm hoping to escape the tag also (although it's fun reading other people's tag hehehe)

Carrie Butler said...

Thanks, Lynda! Aw, are you sure? I could always edit the post and tag you, if you want... ;)

Kelley said...

Blog STDs...horrible, hilarious things...<3 a new follower

Carrie Butler said...

Thanks, Kelley! It's great to have you here. :D

Patrick said...

The music was perfect by the way.

Also I am glad I am not the only guy crashing this party. :P Would have been a little awkward.

Whats an Underoo? Sounds like a breed of kangaroos.

Carrie Butler said...

Hah! You're in good company, Patrick. :) You can find modern day Underoos here.
