Quiz time!

1. You're at a carnival whats the first thing you head for?
2. Ever break anything? (bones wise)
3. Do you run with scissors?
4. Ever meet a celebrity? Who?
5. What color are your eyes?
6. Do you have an accent? If so what kind? (what words do you have an accent on?)

Just like last time please either copy the questions or number your answers so others can easily read your responses (that is what is fun about it!)

So when do you want to my answers? Later day? With next quiz? I don't like giving them until at least one person has replied because I know people like my husband get swayed when they see answers.

Nope. :(
5. What color are your eyes?

1. Your at a carnival whats the first thing you head for?
The demolition derby!

2. Ever break anything? (bones wise)
No actually, I've been pretty lucky!

3. Do you run with scissors?
I'm lucky if I can even FIND my scissors in the first place. I've been known to wrap presents using a pocket knife more often than not because I couldn't find the scissors.

4. Ever meet a celebrity? Who?
I met Mo Rocca once, he came to my college to do some standup and I got my picture with him. Also, this creepy old guy that was in my dance class was there as well (he was also a professor at my college) and he totally embarrassed me in front of Mo. And the rest of the audience. Long, mortifying story.

5. What color are your eyes?
Bluey-greeny?

6. Do you have an accent? If so what kind? (what words do you have an accent on?)
haha, in general I don't really I don't think (I AM going to do a video post soon, so I guess you can judge it then) but I do say certain words weird because that's how my dad's family says them. Like "torlet" instead of "toilet" and "warsh" instead of "wash." I sound like a hilljack so I'm trying to break myself of it but sometimes it just slips out!

Kelly said...

Oh and I have no preference when you give your answers!

Becky said...

1. Funnel Cake.
2. Nope. Too prissy to do anything risky...and I'd like to think I'm fairly graceful.
3. All the time in the office...more like "walk hurriedly"
4. Yes. Marcia Gay Harden, James Gandolfini, David Copperfield, Geoffery Rush, and a smattering of broadway stars. Celebs I've made eye contact with, but didn't actually meet? J.Lo, Ben Affleck, and PRINCE.
5. Green!
6. Some say yes, some say no. Southern. It REALLY came out when I was in Nashville...but not enough for someone to say, "yer not frum around here are ya?"

I can tell you that you can be as graceful as you want and still break a bone! My husband had two bones broken both from outside incidents while he was standing still! I broke a bone too and it wasn't my fault! Someone opened a door onto me angrily.

1. Your at a carnival whats the first thing you head for?
- Funnel cake!

2. Ever break anything? (bones wise)

- Not unless I happen to be cutting and someone comes running after me with a chainsaw.

4. Ever meet a celebrity? Who?
- I feel like the answer to this is yes but I am saying no because I can't think of who.

5. What color are your eyes?
- Blue

6. Do you have an accent? If so what kind? (what words do you have an accent on?)
- Some say yes but I don't hear it. At this point it's probably some Jersey-Maryland hybrid.

Beck At Her Best said...

1. Cotton Candy! or Fried dough
2. No breaks, but I dislocated my knee pretty bad
3. No, cant say that I do
4. A couple, depending on your definition of celebrity - Tyler Florence, the guys from Enter the Haggis, and the Goo Goo Dolls

Oranges And Apples said...

1. You're at a carnival whats the first thing you head for?
Something sweet. Churros?

2. Ever break anything? (bones wise)
I've fractured my toe and had a hernia. Never actually broken anything right though though!

3. Do you run with scissors?
I was walking through the kitchen very fast with scissors earlier on making snipping motions at Dave. true fact.

4. Ever meet a celebrity? Who?
Ben Folds at a festival in belgium when I was 15. I had no idea who he was (I mean I did know he was Ben folds but had never heard of him before the festival) and was confused that there weren't five people in Ben Folds Five. He was very nice but then went off quickly aftern some girls who obviously did know who he was came running towards him excitedly

5. What color are your eyes?
Brown

6. Do you have an accent? If so what kind? (what words do you have an accent on?)

I have the weirdest accent ever. My parents are German but I grew up in Luxembourg where I was taught English by English and Irish teachers. I've lived in Scotland for ten years and people always say that I have a Scottish accent, but I've listened to myself on tape (when I was interviewing people) and at times it goes BBC/posh English and there's still a base layer of something undefinable continental European.

Lisa said...

1. Cotton Candy!
2. Pinky toe . . . not very exciting.
3. No, I'm a teacher I have to set a good example.
4. I'm not sure if Howard Dean counts as a celebrity . . . I did once meet the lead singer of The Killers but I didn't know who he was, so not sure if that counts either.
5. Green
6. A slight NY one, I say coffee correctly but I don't say daughter, aunt, bull, or milk right . . . or so I've been told.

BrooklynShoeBabe said...

Just a follow up, I had to ask my midwestern born and bred hubby if I have a Brooklyn accent and he laughed. He said I have the thickest Brooklyn accent he knows. Hehehe. Between my midwestern hubby, our Caribbean babysitter, and my Brooklyn accent, goodness knows what our children will sound like.

I know I did this on Flickr, but who knows what I put the first time (so yes, my answers will likely be different). Always depends on my mood and what I'm thinking that day.

So anyway.

1. You're at a carnival whats the first thing you head for? Honestly, the carousel. I love picking out a pretty horse.

2. Ever break anything? (bones wise) Nope, just hearts harrrr.

3. Do you run with scissors? I guess I could as long as I keep the tips pointing downward.

4. Ever meet a celebrity? Who? David Grohl; he was trying to shove this huge amp in the back of his equally huge SUV and no one would help him so we all just watched him struggle.

5. What color are your eyes? Blue, but I've been told they can be greyish.

6. Do you have an accent? If so what kind? (what words do you have an accent on?) Southern, of course, but it only really comes out when I'm talking to my parents.

BAM said...

2. Break anything? Nope

3. Run with Scissors? Yes, actually 2 wks ago at work, I was goofing off and actually fell! Luckily I was holding the scissors properly!

4. Celebrity? The guy who played the Biscuit on Ally McBeal (cna't remember his real name, but the show was still on the air). I worked at Disney and got to tell him all about Galapagos Tortoises!

5. Eye color? blue

6. Accent? Yes, but it's a wierd glommed up Orlando accent. I've been told it sounds southern/surfer/canadian.
I don't really know, I guess people identify it as an accent, but can't place me.

Your answers? How 'bout today?

hillary said...

1. You're at a carnival whats the first thing you head for? Biggest Rollercoaster they have!!!!!!!

2. Ever break anything? (bones wise) My big toe.

We were like a month a way from graduation and I hobbled to the office I literally had blood leaking out of my chucks and I said "Can I see the nurse" No nurse (4 years I never knew!) called my parents and step dad came and got me and mom wouldnt come in same room with me for 3 days. She let him check on me.

Hooray for quiz #2

1. You're at a carnival whats the first thing you head for? The animals! I want to see all the baby farm animals.
2. Ever break anything? (bones wise) Nope. I think I've broken my toe on several occasions from dropping stuff in the kitchen on my bare feet, but I'll never be sure.
3. Do you run with scissors? No, but not because I'm worried about it. It's because I don't run.
4. Ever meet a celebrity? Who? No. Well, when I got my National Boards certification, I shook our then CEO's hand, Arne Duncan (now secretary of education) and got to meet Rahm Emanuel when I taught his family. But they were only locally famous then.
5. What color are your eyes? Brown. Sometimes hazel if I'm feeling especially Anglo.
6. Do you have an accent? If so what kind? (what words do you have an accent on?) I have always had the accent where I don't belong. When I lived down south, I got the "you're not from around here" a lot, and now up in Chicago, you'd think I was whistling Dixie all damn day.
