Oh, I couldn't resist this one. Not so easy is it... but I had a lot of fun with it.


Cath--Some were easier than others, and some sound odd when you fill in a title, but it is fun. It's weird how well they work for answers to questions!


Great answers! Can I join your Monstrous Regiment of Women? ;)


Oh yours is really good! I'm going to do this, but it's so hard! Might take me a while to come up with a full meme....


Too funny! I have to work this morning but later on I just may give this one a go.


Well done Danielle! This does look like fun!


I love your choice of you and your friends. It aptly describes me and mine too!

Dorothy W.

A monstrous regiment of women! People have been coming up with funny answers to that question about friends. I found that the hardest part of this meme was deciding which book among several possibilities to choose from, at least with some of the questions.


I love your answers! I agree, it was too fun to pass up; I had to try it myself, and was surprised at how titles fit in as answers to the questoins.


What a great meme! I could not resist, but joined the fun over at my book blog. :) A Monstrous Regiment of Women made me laugh. I love the Mary Russell mysteries.


Simon T

This is so fun! I've done one, saved in my drafts, which will appear at some point...


Sylvia--Indeed you can. In the Laurie King novel a monstrous regiment of women are the bluestockings/feminists. And it has a nice ring to it!
Litlove--I look forward to your answers! It's fun to see what everyone comes up with--it's funny how the meanings of the titles change when you pair then with a question.
Darlene--It's actually a nice, lazy post but interesting and fun to read at the same time (right up my alley--especially the lazy part).
Karen--Give it a try (or save it for a day when you need a nice easy post!).
Chasingbawa--Those titles fitted very nice, if I do say so myself!
Dorothy--Yes, I had the same problem, though there were one or two that nothing seemed to fit so I fudged. It's all in fun. And I love the title A Monstrous Regiment of Women!
Melanie--I will check out your answers. It's weird how the titles sound so different when you match them with a question.
Tiina--I'm not sure who came up with it, but it is fun. I love Laurie King's msyteries, too and this makes me want to go pick one up...
Simon--It's nice to have a post or two in the ready--memes are especially good for this. I look forward to reading yours!


What a fun meme! Some of them seem harder than they look. I'll have to give it a try at some point, too.


Rebecca--It is a fun meme--some people are so creative when they come up with these things! Some I had multiple choices and others I had to fudge a little! :)


It's been so fun reading everyone's answers! I love your answer for describe you and your friends :)


Iliana--Yes, the Laurie King book provided the best answer! :)
