It has been awhile since I did this. I used to come up with random questions on Flickr and ask my friends just to give people something to talk about. Friends would email me questions and I would add them to a long list. I don't remember where all these are from but I know some are from Steve. (the word motorbike makes me think that)

 I am using the cheap ploy of a quiz to get you guys to come and play!
1.Would you rather See everything upside down -or- hear everything backwards?

2. Who is your favorite person to e-stalk? (maybe even someone you don't know but you are always anxious to see "whats new" or "what are the up to now??!")
3.What’s your favorite kind of cereal?

4.Develop gills that work and are hardly visible -or- grow wings that work but are ugly and conspicuous?

5.How do you get from A to B ?

6.Ever ridden a motorbike ?

7.Would you kiss an ugly person for $10,000?

8.What object in your room is really important to you?

9.Are you good at hiding your feelings?

10.Do you usually tell people when they hurt your feelings?
 
11. What is your favorite picture of yourself? Post a link
 
PS don't feel the need to only answer the quiz. If you have anything else to say on any topic that isn't mean as always feel free to say it!

PLEASE copy and paste the questions with your answers or they won' t be posted. People don't like to have to scroll back and forth. By people I mean me.

EDITED TO ADD today is Waffle's second birthday!

kittens 091

She had just opened her eye here. We were sitting on a plane waiting to take off when we got the text the kittens were being born. Waffle came out backwards. Yup. It was a sign.

Cyn said...

Happy birthday Waffle!

My answers-

1.Would you rather See everything upside down -or- hear everything backwards?
 ---I'd rather see everything upside down.  I'm a bit of a cheater since I can read upside down.



2. Who is your favorite person to e-stalk? (maybe even someone you don't
know but you are always anxious to see "whats new" or "what are the up
to now??!")
---Oh geez.  I don't know how I found here, but there's a woman named Missy who is an escort.  She has a blog, enjoys photography, is very educated, loves Linux and other open source software, and is absolutely fascinating to read about.   She's very open, apologetic, and unashamed.  I suppose it is so different from my lifestyle I cannot help but to be intrigued.


3.What’s your favorite kind of cereal?
---Cinnamon Toast Crunch



4.Develop gills that work and are hardly visible -or- grow wings that work but are ugly and conspicuous?

--Gills.  It'd be boss to swim under water for extended periods of time.  I'm also afraid of heights, so my ass-ugly wings would be useless.


5.How do you get from A to B ?

---Phonics?  Oh, a used Pontiac Grand Am. 


6.Ever ridden a motorbike ?
---Only once- my ex had one and begged me to ride with him.  I'm always willing to at least try, but I've only did it once.



7.Would you kiss an ugly person for $10,000?
---I've done it for free.  But a relationship was involved.  I'm not shallow.



8.What object in your room is really important to you?
---My cat Rudy is right next to me.  I love him.



9.Are you good at hiding your feelings?
---Yes.  It has not served me well.



10.Do you usually tell people when they hurt your feelings?
---No.  More I should work on.

I own that dress from Target!  I love mine and sometimes switch out the belt. 

It's always fun to see things I own on blogs.  I can pretend I'm fashionable.  ;)

1.Would you rather See everything upside down -or- hear everything
backwards?

Hear everything backwards. Technically our eyes already see upside down, our brains just fix it for us.


2. Who is your favorite person to e-stalk? (maybe even someone you don't
know but you are always anxious to see "whats new" or "what are the up
to now??!")
Wil Wheaton. Or the Green Brothers who do the vlogs.


3.What’s your favorite kind of cereal?

Raisin Bran.


4.Develop gills that work and are hardly visible -or- grow wings that
work but are ugly and conspicuous?

Gills. Underwater is coooool.

By hitting J, R, and X in the process.


6.Ever ridden a motorbike ?

Yes. I want onnnne.


7.Would you kiss an ugly person for $10,000?

Like on the lips? 10K is a lot of money.


8.What object in your room is really important to you?

My Nook/books.


9.Are you good at hiding your feelings?

Not usually.


10.Do you usually tell people when they hurt your feelings?

Happy Birthday Waffle!
1.Would you rather See everything upside down -or- hear everything backwards?I guess see everything upside down. My hearing is better than my vision, so I feel like I could deal with it better.2. Who is your favorite person to e-stalk? (maybe even someone you don't know but you are always anxious to see "whats new" or "what are the up to now??!")I only just made my Facebook a couple of months ago, so I am enjoying e-stalking all the friends of my friends. They do such odd things. That's probably because they're all like 22, though.3.What’s your favorite kind of cereal?Currently I love Special K with red berries4.Develop gills that work and are hardly visible -or- grow wings that work but are ugly and conspicuous?Gills. Maybe then I wouldn't be scared to go on a boat.5.How do you get from A to B ?Usually by going to E and then backtracking to C and then eventually making it to B. I'm horrible with directions (or keeping things simple)6.Ever ridden a motorbike ?Never!7.Would you kiss an ugly person for $10,000?Probably not, because that seems kind of mean. I mean what if I was the ugly person, I wouldn't want to think it would take  a bribe of $10,000 for someone to kiss me.8.What object in your room is really important to you?My new ferret. I don't know if he's an object.9.Are you good at hiding your feelings?No, not at all. I'm also a bad liar.10.Do you usually tell people when they hurt your feelings? I do not, but since I am not good at hiding my feelings, I think they know

Girl you qwazy. I'm a total robot. And so not popular!

Cara said...

I've missed these! I loved them back when I thought that your blog was so big that there was no way you could be human, and thus was too afraid to comment! (And I'm very glad to know you are human and I can comment!)

1.Would you rather See everything upside down -or- hear everything backwards? See everything upside down. Sometimes a different perspective makes a bad situation better!



2. Who is your favorite person to e-stalk? (maybe even someone you don't
know but you are always anxious to see "whats new" or "what are the up
to now??!") The kids that bullied me in middle school. Not only has karma come back to bite them, it reminds me that I am now strong and can stand up for myself!


3.What’s your favorite kind of cereal? I love Fruit Loops and would eat an entire box if I would allow myself to buy them!



4.Develop gills that work and are hardly visible -or- grow wings that work but are ugly and conspicuous? Having spent close to $200 in gas this weekend, wings!



5.How do you get from A to B ? Generally with detours to x, p, m and k.



6.Ever ridden a motorbike ? No, but I really want to!



7.Would you kiss an ugly person for $10,000? Yes. There are a lot of more disturbing things I'd do for $10,000



8.What object in your room is really important to you? Right now, it's a picture of my niece. I spent the last 4 days with her, and even though I know I'll see her in a week, I miss her little smiley face!



9.Are you good at hiding your feelings? I really am, but I've learned that it is a bad thing> I too snap like a twig and vomit it all up, but that usually only happens at a bad time.



10.Do you usually tell people when they hurt your feelings? I try. I've learned it's important to cool down a bit before I do it. Afterall, I would hate to know I'd hurt someone else's feelings and wasn't aware of it.

1.Would you rather See everything upside down -or- hear everything backwards?
im with you, i think i could get used to seeing things upside down, so i would go with that.



2. Who is your favorite person to e-stalk? (maybe even someone you
don't know but you are always anxious to see "whats new" or "what are
the up to now??!")
my favorite bloggers. but i guess it doesnt really count as stalking since we are all a "community" ;)


3.What’s your favorite kind of cereal?
there are several that i like, but i think in the end, i always come back to honey-nut cheerios.



4.Develop gills that work and are hardly visible -or- grow wings that work but are ugly and conspicuous?
gills. id love to just chill underwater for a while!



5.How do you get from A to B ?
my daily commute consists of walking to the shuttle stop, taking the neighborhood shuttle to the metro station, taking the train downtown, and walking to my building. reverse for home commute.



6.Ever ridden a motorbike?
ridden, yes. driven, no.



7.Would you kiss an ugly person for $10,000?
probably, yeah. depends on the kind of kiss, though, i guess.



8.What object in your room is really important to you?
my wedding ring.



9.Are you good at hiding your feelings?
i can be, if they are more shallow/surface feelings. but something that hits my core and makes me really sad/angry/upset, no.



10.Do you usually tell people when they hurt your feelings?
it depends on the person and situation. people who are close to me, sure. but if someone says something at work that smarts, i will usually let it go unmentioned.

 

11. What is your favorite picture of yourself? Post a link 
i dont really have a single favorite. there are a few from my wedding that i really love, but the one that is probably my favorite isnt online. i will share this one, since it is of me + my dad, and he just went into the hospital this weekend. im worried about him, and he is on my mind constantly right now:

I would
rather see everything upside down.  I
think I could get used to it.



2. Who is your favorite person to e-stalk? (maybe even someone you

people who are hurtful, so why should I care what they say?

1. See everything upside down -or- hear everything backwards?
I think upside down. I think that you would get used to it.

2. Who is your favorite person to e-stalk? (maybe even someone you don't know but you are always anxious to see "whats new" or "what are the up to now??!")hrm. Kellysue or Keiko Lynn.

3.What’s your favorite kind of cereal? Oatmeal with the dinosaurs in it.

4.Develop gills that work and are hardly visible -or- grow wings that work but are ugly and conspicuous? gills! No doubt. But I would be too much of a fraidy cat to use them. I hate seeing things in the ocean. I think cause I keep expecting to find a body. I watch way too much Law and order.

5.How do you get from A to B ?
by zed of course (no idea what the person who submitted this had in mind. They may not of either:P )

6.Ever ridden a motorbike ? a gocart and a 4 wheeler ooh and a rokon. So yes I guess.

7.Would you kiss an ugly person for $10,000? define ugly. Probably. You imagine all the Marc Jacobs I could buy?!

8.What object in your room is really important to you? I am at work. hrmm looking around... My camera. I love love love taking pictures and looking at them. Its on my desk cause I uploaded a few hours ago.

9.Are you good at hiding your feelings? I think I am. But sometimes I break like a twig and vomit them all up at once.

10.Do you usually tell people when they hurt your feelings? no. :( I used to always, no matter who I would tell them. and it blew up in my face one too many times.
tend to let people shite on me now. I know I shouldn't. its kind of a new thing. With many I just have given up. But I think sadly with some thats the only way to go.

THAT ANSWER WAS 3 years old. Here is my update. I had a bunch of people (some bloggers) hurt me recently and I dealt with it by doing nothing. It actually felt really good for once not engaging in that behavior.

11. What is your favorite picture of yourself? Post a link this isn't the most flattering of me or anyone in it but it is the last one of me and pop together. http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3510/3980566516_330d5f48ca_b.jpg

I am using the cheap ploy of a quiz to get you guys to come and play!
1.Would you rather See everything upside down -or- hear everything backwards?

Blerg. I can't decide. Both sound like Twin Peaks, which makes me die a little inside.

2. Who is your favorite person to e-stalk? (maybe even someone you don't know but you are always anxious to see "whats new" or "what are the up to now??!")

Well, today I am kind of stalking you because I have this thing where I find a blog and read the whole thing.

3.What’s your favorite kind of cereal?

Ever- Tiger Cereal (aka Frosted Flakes)
Now- Blueberry Frosted Mini Wheats

4.Develop gills that work and are hardly visible -or- grow wings that work but are ugly and conspicuous?

Wings, so worth it to get to fly. And you know, you can camouflage almost anything with enough glitter.


5.How do you get from A to B ?

In one sitting (even if it is a marathon) or I get bored.

6.Ever ridden a motorbike ?

Nope- dad's a cop. Even in adulthood I consider it FORBIDDEN.

7.Would you kiss an ugly person for $10,000?

Well, are they stinky too? This makes a difference.

8.What object in your room is really important to you?

My kids (they always end up in my bed- no matter what I do)

9.Are you good at hiding your feelings?

Not a bit.

10.Do you usually tell people when they hurt your feelings?

Sometimes I try not too, but it often boils up and out anyway.

11. What is your favorite picture of yourself? Post a lin

Oh dear. Ummmm...Here is one that I think is hilarious:
