and I quote*:

"You know the drill.

"Answer the questions and then post on your blog to expose yourself to ridicule. If you don’t post this within 48 hours of receiving a tag**, for the rest of your life, more than two-thirds of every breath you take will be nitrogen."

(*you can tell I'm quoting from someone else, far too much punctuation - well, full stops, and capital letters, to be specific - for my liking!)

(**and that's not a threat, but this man issued it if you want to take it up with anyone)

  1. If I were to engage in se*ual activity with three members of the se* to which I am currently not attracted, I would choose:

    a starfish,

    a pelican and

    a flamingo;
    and - OH! I'm on a roll -

    snowdrops and peppermills

    (and NO! I'm
    not being rude
    - I like fresh coarsely ground pepper on my daily salad -
    salad is so much more reliable than se*)

  2. Of the following list:


    my favourite is: why Vicus, of course! (altho I do quite like calligraphy) (not Caligula, or Kaliyuga even, but calligraphy)

    calligraphy on a driftwood box
    - doesn't get much better than this!

  3. You’re in a desert walking along in the sand when all of the sudden you look down, and you see a tortoise, it’s crawling toward you. You reach down; you flip the tortoise over on its back. The tortoise lies on its back, its belly baking in the hot sun, beating its legs trying to turn itself over, but it can’t, not without your help. But you’re not helping.

    Why is that? I put my back out when I bent down the first time - serves me right, but oh! that poor tortoise. . . (I always thought they were self righting)

  4. Rank the following from 1 to 5 (1 being the best):

    Tri-cut Manila Folders 2
    Q-Tip Brand Cotton Swabs 1
    A highball glass full of tepid drinking water depends how thirsty I was
    Three assorted length drywall screws 4

  5. Describe in single words, only the good things that come into your mind about your mother.

    erm. . . she could knit and embroider without making a mistake. . . she made jam that set perfectly and jelly that was totally clear. . . she made very good custard from only egg yolks, sugar and milk. . . she made very good meringues from the egg whites left over from the custard. . . she never left her husband despite the fact she was very unhappily married. . . she took my brothers and I on holiday once to Norway and we travelled around by the local buses and she never once took the wrong bus or missed a connection. . . she introduced me to art. . .

    (even tho she then said I couldn't study it at college because "nice girls don't go to art college")

    (ok, I have to stop here or this will just go downhill)

  6. How many States can you name from memory?

    desparation, loneliness, sadness, lostness, regret. . .

    oh I think I better stop again. . .

  7. If you were to rename yourself (first, middle and last), what would you choose?

  8. Ross or Frost or Fleming would be my last name (Ross because I'm related to a Ross, Frost because I'm related to a Frost and Fleming because I'm related to a Fleming); I've always thought middle names to be a bit of a waste, but I'd choose the letter X or Q because they don't get enough of a look in as far as I'm concerned and I would choose my first name to continue to be my first name because otherwise I'd just get confused if/when people talk to me. . .

  9. Which of the following does not belong: Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren, Mercedes-Benz CLK55 AMG, Mercedes-Benz SLC Gullwing, Mercedes-Benz SLK55 AMG?

    did someone mention gulls?
    I like gulls!

  10. Pick one: Matthew McConaughey, Josh Lucas, David Beckham. . .

    hmmmmmmm I get to pick a man? well, you know me. . .


  11. Pick one: Eva Mendes, Vanessa Marcil, Eva Longoria. . .

Meg! can I pick Meg?

I think I just did. . .

OH lordie......

k....ready set.....

BTW....I'm glad you're not a replicant. :-)

I, Like The View said...

erm, a replicant?

*scratches head*

if it's not answering the questions properly, you know it's really because I didn't understand some of them. . . so I had to do a little "thinking outside of the box" and just use this as a launch point. . . rather than following the rules. . .

I, Like The View said...

(crikey - now I'm thinking of Blade Runner!)

Dave said...

I think Q1 meant 'gender' not 'different species'.

Mind you, the book on which Blade Runner was based did have electric sheep and the like.

Dave said...

How is it possible to list the four items in Q4 in order 1-5?

This quiz is silly and I'm not going to do it.

I, Like The View said...

my thoughts exactly Dave (your second comment) and I didn't do the quiz for a number of days on that very basis. . .

however, in the end I succumbed. . .

and neatly avoided falling into the trap set in the first question

or so I thought

(and do androids dream of electric sheep? I have no idea, but I did like the film when I saw it many years ago. . . didn't ever read the book; always reminds me of Chomsky and his green ideas)

Mel said...

Well, we had great fun.....and I'm now getting breakfast out--

It made me laugh.
HIMSELF made me laugh.

And himself noted #3 was from Blade Runner....and was glad you had the emotional reaction. It means you're NOT a replicant--which is a very, very, VERY good thing, dearheart!

((((( ILTV )))))))

<-- laughing at himself who's now proud to say he's up to 43 of the States.

*HUGE hugs*

<-- going out for breakfast! Wooooohoooooooo!!!!

I, Like The View said...

enjoy your breakfast! I'm glad you make him laugh he makes you laugh that we're laughing!!

(I must try the US States. . . don't think I'd get very far, but way back in 1983 when I was a nanny in NYC the little boy I looked after had a jigsaw map of the country and we used to jigsaw together and I was good at them then)
