Do You Know Me?
Lately, I feel like I’ve been spending more time on Facebook & Twitter than I have concentrating on blogging, and I don’t know if that is necessarily a bad thing. I mean…with Facebook I get to see what all of my friends are doing and make quick status updates (usually something snarky or sarcastic). And with Twitter…well…no one really cares so I don’t spend much time on there. But both are a lot easier than writing a blog, where I have to actually set up my thoughts, organize and put a “story” in writing.
The other day on Facebook, I took a couple of “How Well Do You Know Such-n-Such” quizzes and was very disappointed in myself. After answering the 10 stumpers, it turns out I don’t know “my friends” very well at all. So I wanted to apologize to them (they know who they are…probably) for being a terrible friend. And to keep anyone else from feeling this way as well, I figured I would jot down the answers to my quiz for all of my OTHER friends who may take the quiz on me, this way eliminating any bad feelings that the quiz might evoke and we can all walk away from the Facebook experience with our heads held high and a happy feeling in our heart (I have no idea what I am talking about). Anyway…here’s MY “Cheat Sheet”. Use it when appropriate!
1. What color best suits me?
This is an obvious choice if you know me at all, and most everyone who has taken my quiz has gotten it correct. However if you think about it, it’s an easy answer because I have blue eyes…so BLUE is my answer because then everything matches! (Or so I tell my wife. She just thinks I’m lazy and I don’t want to color coordinate…)
2. My favorite alcoholic beverage is…
Sure, I like beer. Beer is great on a summer evening while chatting with friends. But for my true alcoholic love, it has to bring a happy thought into my head everytime I drink it. And nothing evokes better images than the drink I had every second of my honeymoon back in 2000. The pina colada is cool & refreshing and brings back great memories. What more can a person ask for? (Besides a cheap buzz and nausea?)
3. My favorite flavor of ice cream?
Hands down, Graeter’s Raspberry Chocolate Chip. With HUGE pieces of chocolate and the sweetest raspberry ice cream ever. But it is now being tested with a new Graeter’s flavor called “Elena’s Blueberry Pie”, which is downright DELICIOUS!!!
4. How many times have I travelled out of the country?
Surprise! Only twice. Oh sure…I guess it’s true that I have been over the Canadian border a couple of times to Windsor and Montreal. But for the true travel experience, I have only been to London & St. Lucia in the carribean. That’s pretty much it. And I didn’t even need a passport to get me to St. Lucia…so maybe that doesn’t count. I dunno…
5. What is my favorite movie?
If you don’t get this one, then you really don’t know me at all. “Grosse Pointe Blank” has been my favorite movie for about 8 years now. John Cusack, great soundtrack, awesome dialogue. My favorite easily!
6. What is my middle name?
I forgive anyone who missed this one because, quite honestly, middle names are dumb. Not that they aren’t necessary, but if you don’t know that I share “Thomas” with my Dad, I won’t hold it against you…
7. What song would I choose to sing at a karaoke bar?
When choosing to sing a song in public, the first thing I think about are the high notes. ‘Cause I can’t reach them. So then I shoot for something with low notes. And nothing says low notes like “Jet Airliner” by The Steve Miller Band. And to my friends who chose “Close To You”? You are fired…
8. What city was I born in?
Trick question because I was raised in Zanesville, OH. But my parents got me from an adoption agency in Columbus where, apparently, my maternal parents went to school. So Columbus, OH is where I am from originally.
9. Who is my favorite Disney character?
Who cares really? Well…I think the character you pick shows what kind of person you are. So in MY mind, I am forever young. So Peter Pan is my favorite character!
10. At a party, what would I be doing?
The answers are drinking, chatting, sitting in a corner by myself or sleeping. If I’m at a party (which is rare), my wife does all the chatting but I would never be sitting in a corner. I would probably be walking around, sipping a drink and listening to everyone else’s conversations. So drinking is my answer!
So there ya have it. If you’re on Facebook and you are gonna take MY quiz, you now know all the answers! And if you’re NOT my friend on Facebook…um…well….WHY NOT??? Get with the times! Everyone is doing it!
Wow! i have a lot to catch up on! All this moving and I have neglected reading blogs anymore….I missed you, you always make me snicker! 🙂
And I’ve missed you! Welcome back! 🙂
I love Grosse Pointe Blank. We just watched it yesterday. Still a great movie.
Oh, and by the way, totally off topic, your wife is very pretty. 🙂 Every photo of her is great.
Everybody deserves an honest compliment. So feel free to share it with her.
Will do! I want to post a picture of her the other night. We went to a wedding reception and a birthday party and she looked AWESOME! Totally HOT!!! But…she hates it when I blog about her…so maybe not…
We don’t have that type of ice cream here … it sounds yummy!
Somewhere in the back of my mind, I’m sure I knew the answer to #8, but think I still would have gotten it wrong. Unless it was multiple choice, that might have prompted my memory a bit. Are the quizzes multiple choice?
And Graeters is definitely good…I miss it. But I miss the Marble Slab more. Dear, sweet Marble Slab…sometimes I weep quietly at night, missing it so much.
I’m happy to say that I got many of these right. I feel the need to explain a couple that I got wrong:
I picked Green because of your haircolor and I think that you would look good in Green. Or maybe because Green is my favorite color.
I had Jet Airliner picked first and then changed it at the last minute. Proof positive that you should always go with your first instinct.
I also almost got the trick question on birthplace right, because I had a feeling it was a trick question. Again with the instinct thing.
Anyway, at least I know you a little! 🙂
I prefer UDF because I think Graeters has a little too much paraffin in it, but they are the ONLY ice cream that has chunks of chocolate as big as a golf ball. It’s awesome.
