Thank you Rory for nominating me for your fun little game. Check out the original post here. Rules are at the bottom. If you’re looking for a classic TBA post, look elsewhere ‘cuz this ain’t it.
1] If you were a vegetable, which would you be, but more importantly why?
If I were a vegetable, I would be a carrot because how delightful it must be to spend your entire life underground only to see the rest of the world for the first time and almost immediately be ripped to shreds/digested?
2] Milk, water or juice?
Juice, hopefully fresh-squeezed.
3] Ok, for some bizarre reason, you have awoken to a fresh day, go to the fridge, open it and there is a giraffe inside stuck, how are you going to get it out? [Asking for a friend]
Wow, if a giraffe was stuck in a fridge, I can imagine it should be easy to get out. My fridge is always jam-packed, so it must have eaten everything and ripped out the shelves. What a monster! I usually have some coconut oil lying around outside, so I’ll probably use some of that. I guess luring it with more food wouldn’t help – it’s probably already super full. That said, I can imagine some vomit in random places around the fridge. Later, I would probably let the giraffe hang out in my backyard. I’m sure we have a spare dog leash around. I would only let it hang until it felt better and I could reach out to anyone who would know what to do with a giraffe in a completely wrong part of the world.
4] Oh grief, emails are the bane of our lives right? We have an email for everything, you open up your inbox and you find that you have a staggering 2000 sitting in there that require answering, BUT you can only answer 200 – how do you choose the ones to answer?
I’ll probably only answer the ones that I find interesting. Maybe there’s some weird project someone wants me to partake in. I could be up for that.
5] You have a party of 28 people turning up on your doorstep and the caterers have let you down, you have 2 hours to make some kind of meal and you only have a potatoes, bananas, breadrolls and taco sauce – what you are going to make?
Dude… what? At least it’s only 28 people. I’d definitely fry the bananas and cut them up into slices. I’d slice the breadrolls, too, and place the fried banana slices on top to make a weird plantain-like hors d’oeuvre. Uhhh make the potatoes into home fries and add the taco sauce OR I could make taco sauce mashed potatoes. Idk.
6] Woot woot, you have just won a ticket to travel back in time to the days of the Roman Empire – brilliant day – but on your way back to your own time zones, you suddenly realise you have dropped your mobile phone and there is NO turning back – what do you expect to actually return to – or would there be no difference ?
I think that there would be a different Jesus. Like someone would pick it up and no one would believe in this magical phone. The dude/lady would start their own religion around it. Maybe they would think it’s possessed and throw it in a well or something. I can definitely see this becoming a religious shrine thing of some sort.
7] What is your favourite Disney film?
I’m not a huge Disney film person, but I really liked Inside Out and Up.
8] If you could eliminate one invention from the history of the world and it could never be reinvented, what would it be?
The douche. It was always useless and everything else is too scary to imagine how it would change the world. My brother said gunpowder and then we got into this crazy discussion about how we would either evolve as a society that could only fight with swords OR we would invent extremely high powered energy weapons that would be much worse than guns, cannons, tanks, etc. So I’m going to be safe and say the douche.
9] You were given the opportunity to fly anywhere in the entire world with the ability to fly back from that exact same spot. You can’t fly to or from any other place and you can only do it once. Where would you go and why?
Australia because I want to see what it’s like and I want to see if I want to go there for a longer period of time. I can’t imagine going for just a week or so. I feel like it would have to be a year. If I could just fly right there and back, I could check it out and see if that’s something I really want to do.
10] How can you drop an egg from a height without it breaking?
I would never put an egg through that kind of stress. They are too pure of a food to waste. I never did it in school, too. I always wanted to. I watched my cousins do that experiment and I was super jealous.
11] If tattoos were easily and cheaply removable whenever you wanted, how many would you get, what would you get, and where?
I would definitely try out a bunch of things. I would try a lace sleeve for a bit. I would get the tattoos I’ve always wanted to get. I mostly haven’t got them because I’m afraid I’ll hate the placement or what it looks like. I’d have no fear if I could remove them. I might try out something super bold, like one of those under boob tattoos that (no offense people who have them) I’m sure will go out of style in a second. Maybe a face tattoo just to freak people out for a day. The options are endless!
12] Oh my goodness what a conundrum! You have found yourself in a position where upon you are driving late at night and the heavens have opened – you spot three people in the rain and want to help, but only have space for one passenger …
An old lady who looks as if she is about to die.
An old friend who once saved your life.
The perfect partner you have been dreaming about.
…… Who do you help?
They’re literally all going to be fine because it’s just rain. I actually have 4 extra seats in my Prius. I’d give the perfect partner my number, say hey to my friend, and drive the old lady home because damn, she must be so much more miserable all sopping wet. She probably has less of an ability to walk home.
Alternative: I give my friend my keys, step out into the rain with the perfect partner and have my friend drive the old lady home. The “perfect partner” and I can walk home together. Boom.
13] Why do we have a face at the front of our heads and not at the back ?
We have the ability to turn our heads and bodies. It would be way too difficult to see on all sides. Can you imagine what dreams would be like? Over-stimulation, for sure!
14] Which 3 questions will you be deleting to add your own in?
#8: If like in the movies a soundtrack played for every moment of one day in your life – what tracks would be playing to best represent you? [Provide links]
#11: If you hadn’t slept for 8 days how many hours of sleep would you have lost?
#9: What vegetables can you on no account tolerate? ( I love all veggies)
15] What is the length of one piece of cooked spaghetti??
I think it’s the same as uncooked spaghetti: two of my hands stacked on top of each other.
16] Where are your keys to your house right now?
In my bedroom, hung up. I am in my house.
17] What’s the funniest April Fools joke you have ever pulled off?
Ah man, I hate to be a party pooper, but I hate April Fools and I think the only one I did was with my brother when we taped down the little handheld faucet thing in the kitchen so that when she turned on the sink, it sprayed her.
18] What is your strongest emotion?
Depression. *peace sign*
19] Bob’s father has 4 children. John, Adam, and Peter are three of them. Who’s the fourth??
Bobbi Jo, his only daughter who goes by “Bob.” Obviously she wears daisy dukes.
20] The three bloggers you are nominating are?
I have no idea if any of you will do this, but check out the rules if you’re down:
The Rules …
… I know, but there’s always Rules, you know?
1] Thank the nominator
2] Answer Q1 – Q19
3] Nominate three bloggers of your choice and notify them.
4] Each selected blogger MUST answer 16 of the asked 19 questions, but also insert 3 new questions to make up the 19 compliment. Every time a new blogger is selected they MUST only answer 16 of the asked 19 questions as well as answer their own 3, and choose 3 new bloggers. Each time a new blogger sees the questionnaire it will be completely different to the next blogger along.
[Hint: delete three of the questions you don’t like or have no answer for and insert your own in its place]
5] Q20 & Q14 Must always remain intact.
I think the gif is from Key and Peele.
