Memes Suck: Letting You In To My Panty Drawer

memes suck old school blogging

Yes, I said “panty.” I have no problem with the word, just like I have no problem with the word “moist.” I dont’ really want to hear the two words together, but separately, no issues here.

No part of my panty drawer is moist. That would be awful. I don’t even know why I even thought of that.

I digress.

Totally unrelated to moist panties, we’re bringing back the Meme. OH YES WE ARE. All this talk lately about “old school blogging” and going back to basics has made me and a few of my blog friendlies realize that we need to step back into the fun stuff: the Memes. Who knows how long it will last, or if it will even get past today, but Tena and I are starting off by showing you what’s in our undies drawer. Because why? Because we’re old school bloggers.

What exactly IS a Meme? I’ll let Wikipedia explain:

A meme ( /ˈmiːm/) is “an idea, behaviour or style that spreads from person to person within a culture.” A meme acts as a unit for carrying cultural ideas, symbols or practices, which can be transmitted from one mind to another through writing, speech, gestures, rituals or other imitable phenomena. Supporters of the concept regard memes as cultural analogues to genes in that they self-replicate, mutate and respond to selective pressures.

That was painful.

The dumbed-down definition as it applies to blogs: Publishing a post with a central idea that is common among any blogger who chooses to participate. See: Wordless Wednesday, 100 Words, Haiku Friday, NABLOPOMO, etc. Most of these Memes have been long forgotten, but there are some old schoolers who still participate.

Haters may hate on Memes, but we’re here to bring back the fun part: The participation through peer pressure. The beauty of our Meme, Memes Suck, is that it doesn’t have to be published on the same day as the rest of the other participants. We’re generous like that.

Tuesday Meme Day: DO OUR MEME OR DIE

Today’s Memes Suck is all about showing off, or being embarrassed by, our panty drawers. What’s in that most private of privates?

After I took out an incriminating redacted, I took a picture of what’s sitting in my top drawer. I’m pretty sure most of what’s pictured has been in there since I got the furniture 8 years ago.

panty drawer

  1. Tooth Fairy evidence
  2. Pink undies from 4 sizes ago
  3. Sexytime lingerie from 12+ years ago
  4. Nighties I got from my bridal shower in 1998
  5. A Winnie the Pooh nightie given to me at my bridal shower. And really, who A) buys Winnie the Pooh sexy lingerie, and B) gives Winnie the Pooh sexy lingerie. Wait. Who KEEPS Winnie the Pooh lingerie for THIRTEEN YEARS in her drawer? Me.
  6. Panties that actually fit
  7. Undies that look like boys underwear (Don’t start thinking that Patrick likes for me to look like a little boy in these. They’re mainly for sleeping. Mainly.)
  8. The only thong I own and have never worn.
  9. 1-size-too-small period panties
  10. Bras, not kept in the panty drawer because they hardly ever make it that far from being hung to dry in the laundry room

if you had moist underwear in your drawer, I would call in an intervention for you.

Stopping by from BPNH ;)

You are a brave woman, disclosing your panty drawer! I have to admit that I spent some time looking at that picture there, trying to figure out what is what (and trying to find evidence that other people love granny panties as much as I do).

LOVE.

I now want to go take pictures of my panty drawer. I’ll do that after I do laundry so it looks more impressive.

My best ones weren’t even in the drawer, but are lost deep in the dirty laundry pile.

I don’t have an Eeyore merry widow or anything, but you reminded me of a wedding gift I got from the mother of one of my preschool students. It was a gift certificate for Victoria’s secret, and the mom had written the card in big preschool-style writing and signed it from her kid. It read: “DEAR MISS HEATHER. I THOUGHT YOU MIGHT LIKE SOME WINNE POOH PANTIES FOR YOUR HUNNY MOON. LOVE HANNAH.

Best. Teacher gift. Ever.

That would freak me the EFF out every time I wore the undies I bought with that gift card.

I am afraid to show you. But I guess I will. Tomorrow. I don’t fold underwear.

I don’t see a reason to, but I do it. Now I’m wondering why.

Where do you keep your panties? In the basket? Under your pillow? DO YOU NOT HAVE UNDIES?

You fold your underwear? Or is that just for the tour?

I would be afraid to show you my underwear drawer. Because it would take a really long time (I chuck all sorts of weird things in there).

Also, I hate the word “panty.” And “moist.” And the fact that you did use them together almost made me not read this post. ;)

I’m kind of disappointed in the boringness of my lingerie drawer compared to y’all! I’ll try and do better next meme. ; p

Mine is full of mom panties, thanks to the incident described by the post. (So I cheated, I wrote this before, but it was perfect…)
