Questions #10

     Before you go any further, if you read Kianwi's blog Simply She Goes, then you probably noticed that it is no longer a thing that exists. The good news is, she now has a blog called Writsey Daisy. She's trying to let everyone know it's up and running, but I thought I would let you all know since most of you were sent my way, by Kianwi.

     When I was doing the A to Z Challenge in April last year, I asked my readers for some questions so that I could do a post for Q. I didn't think I would have enough questions so I asked my friend Ashley to send me some. She sent me eight hundred so I decided I would accept the challenge and answer them all (like she also decided) but I would split it up with posts. I'll be continuing from where I left off from the previous post. You can see the other posts by going here.

     (For the record, this post was written when she sent me the list for the Challenge, so not all of the answers are completely up to date.)

236) Who is your favorite comedian?
     Jeff Dunham.

237) What's your favorite board game?
     Clue. I always play Mrs Scarlet and I'm actually pretty good at it.

238) Do you have any lucky items, objects, or traditions?
     Not really. On my first plane ride (that I remember and by myself), my mom got me a little troll doll from the airport. I've never been on a plane without it. Does that count? I have a cross that I never take off unless it gets tangled or one of the many times that the chain has broken and needed to be replaced. That probably counts more. (Update: That cross necklace has since broken. It's not the first time and probably won't be the last, but unlike any other time, I didn't have a spare chain to use. I'll have to get another one soon.)

239) Do you have any superstitions?
     I believe trailers 100, 101, and 106 where my mom works are all bad luck trailers because nobody who has moved into them since she started her job have been sane, sober, and paid rent. That's about it. (Update: Used to work. She has since been laid off because her boss is literally losing his mind with Alzheimer's but she should be working at a new park in a couple months.)

240) What's your favorite movie quote?
     "Hakuna Matata." - The Lion King
     "Everything in this room is eatable. Even I'm eatable. But that is called 'cannibalism', my dear children, and is in fact frowned upon in most societies." - Charlie And The Chocolate Factory

241) Who would win a fight: Chuck Norris or Jack Bauer?
     Chuck Norris because I had to Google Jack Bauer to find out who he is, and that he is fictional. And 'Jack' was killed in The Lost Boys by a wooden stake sooo....

242) Do you have much of an ego?
     Depends on who you're talking to. Ask my boyfriend and he'll say I do. Ask my boss and he'll say I don't. (Update: Old boss. It's too far of a commute from Arizona to a state on the other side of the country.)

243) Do you wear sunglasses indoors to look cool or stylish?
     No. I think it makes people look like a douche. But I don't wear sunglasses anymore anyways because I have to wear glasses. Anybody want to give me some money so I can get contacts instead? (Update: I even mostly stopped wearing my glasses because I don't think the prescription is right anymore. They give me a lot of headaches without doing much for my vision.)

244) Are you a hat person?

245) What's your favorite supermarket chain?
     Whichever has cheaper stuff and shorter lines.

246) What's your favorite fast food chain?
     I'm not a big fast food fan. I typically like one thing per fast food place, at least enough to eat it then, but I'd rather eat other food. If I had to pick, it would probably be Sonic... just not the ones near here because two of them gave me horrible food poisoning that put me in bed for a week at a time. (Update: "here" being where I used to live, not here here.)

247) What's your first thought upon waking up?
     "Let me go back to sleep."
     "Where's my phone?"
     "I have to pee; move outta the way." which is then followed by an Olympic dash to the bathroom.
     (Update: Or after the nightmare I had last night, "WHERE THE FUCK AM I? Oh wait. Shit, I thought I was dead???)

248) What animal would you most like to have as a pet?
     A tame pet tiger. But nobody will let me have one. =(

249) What's your favorite type of tree?
     Willow trees. I've always liked the idea of hiding under them. Not sure why.

250) If you could bankrupt one person or company, who would it be?
     Somebody bad. Like somebody running a child porn ring or something. If I get people who find this blog because of those words in that answer, I'm going to be pissed. Get the fuck off my blog, you sick son of a bitch.

251) If you could steal one thing without consequence, what would it be?
     The ability to do math. How sad is that?

252) Who is your favorite celeb with the same first or surname as you?
     I don't really know any celebs with either of my names so I'll just go with Rachel McAdams.

253) If evil-does invaded your country, would you rush to the battlelines to defend your country or hide in a box?
     I'm not going to join the military, sorry. I have respect and admiration for those who do but I won't do it.

254) What's your favorite flower?
     I don't have one. Roses and peony flowers are gorgeous though.

255) Do you believe in ghosts?
     I've had many weird things happen that I can't explain, but I'm not going to just assume a ghost did it either.

256) Do you believe in the Lochness Monster?
     I believe something was, at least, alive there to cause the sightings but I don't believe its any sort of monster. There are just millions of animals in the world and I find it difficult to believe science has discovered and labeled them all.

257) Do you believe in aliens?
     I wouldn't surprise me to find out they're real but I wouldn't say I'm a strong believer like my dad is. (Updated: I decided I should explain before posting. He claims two things, to my knowledge. One is that a UFO hovered above his house. Two is that he and his younger brother were flying kites one day. One of the kites went up and disappeared for three days, for an unknown reason. On the third day, it landed in front of him, on fire, and I think he said he saw a UFO flying away after it but I'm unsure about the last part.)

258) Do you believe the government hides technology and information from the public?
     I avoid all politics the best that I can but I'm not a conspiracy theorist.

259) What is your favorite Pokemon?
     Espeon. My cousin liked Umbreon when we were little and we used to argue over who was better.


  1. What interesting answers! If we ever play Clue, then we're going to have a fight because I won't play unless I'm Miss Scarlet. The Hurricane is a mathematician. I wish she could help you with your math because she helped me when I thought all was lost. She's such a good teacher.


    1. Aww! I guess I can play somebody else if we ever play, but only because I really like that game.

      That would be awesome, if she were here. I struggle with everything that isn't basic math (even then, sometimes it takes me a few minutes) so I need all the help I can get.

    2. The Hurricane will soon be Dr. The Hurricane because she's getting her Ph.D. in math. She was just always good at it, but she had parents who helped out and answered questions. I'm amazed that you would be willing to be someone else in Clue. That demonstrates a generous spirit.

    3. That's amazing! Congrats to her!

      My dad is good at math but I don't have a relationship with him. My mom was in Germany for a lot of her school years. They had an English teacher teaching math so when she got back to the states, she was behind. She can memorize a formula like crazy but when it comes to actually answering it, it's a different story.

  2. thank you so much for posting about my blog!

    I LOVE clue and haven't played it in forever. I just saw an ad for a a 3d clue game and I want it so much!

    I'm with you on the math girl!

    1. No problem. =) I just hope all of your readers find their way back to you.

      ...I need it. I need that game. I have no clue how it would work or if anybody in this state would play with me, but I need it.

      Yay! I'm not alone in my suffering!

  3. I used to carry a troll as a good luck charm when I was in high school. I'd always have it with me during exams.

    I'm with you on supermarkets: cheapest and shortest lines—definitely.

    Thanks for your comment on my blog. I'm so grateful for blogging friends like you. ☺

    1. Trolls MUST be good luck then. =)

      haha It just makes things easier, doesn't it?

      Awwwwww. =) I always smile when I'm called a friend.

  4. Lol. What interesting questions you chose this week. Thanks for sharing.

    1. haha I'm glad you enjoyed them! I didn't really choose them though. It's easiest to go in order of the questions she sent me last April. It's like three months until April this year and I'm not even halfway there yet!

  5. I love these blog posts where the blogger answers questions about themselves. They seem to be pretty popular now. Hmm, maybe I should start one of my own. It was fun learning more about you! Have a great weekend!

    1. I'm glad you liked it! You're welcome to steal some of my questions if you'd like. haha Thank you for stopping by! I'll be by as soon as I can. Laptop trouble.

  6. Ah yes, Clue, because "it was Colonel Mustard in the back door with the lead pipe" is never not funny. Really though, I do love that game.

    1. It took me a while to get that joke, but you're right. That will never not be funny.

      Also, it seems like we're going to need to have a Clue party with everyone who commented. Kianwi can bring the new game, Janie can bring snacks (since I'm assuming she's a better cook than me), you can bring the drinks (lol duh), and I'll provide the location and music.

  7. Nice post. I like how you answered questions about yourself. It is a great way to get to know the person behind the blog. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Thank you! I've always thought the blog is just a place for my thoughts and experiences so I feel like I should be open about who I am. =)
