Meme: Ask Me Questions

It's Tuesday here in the blogosphere which means that my schedule is entirely full from the time I leave for work at 7:10am to getting home from band rehearsal at around 9:30pm. Not much time to spare. So, I am turning to an "Ask Me a Question" meme that I discovered on Tumblr. Pick a few numbers in the comments and I'll answer your questions in a subsequent blog post or posts. Fun!

1: when you have a container of neapolitan ice cream, what flavor do you leave for last?
2: would you rather be caught in a thunderstorm without an umbrella or a snowstorm without boots?
3: let's say you have access to a time machine, but it can only go either backward or forward. one or the other. which do you choose and where do you go?
4: tomorrow morning, you wake up in the body of a celebrity, like in a '90s body-swap movie. who is it? how do they react to your life? what do you do when you're "them"? would you choose to switch back?
5: any allergies?
6: did you get enough sleep last night?
7: you're the sole witness to a mafia murder. witness protection has to set you up with a whole new life in a totally new country. you have to leave everything behind, but you can pick where you move to. where do you go?
8: if you could star in a biopic about any famous person ever, who would it be?
9: what's the biggest animal you've ever killed? bugs count.
10: would you rather have millions of dollars but always feel nauseous when you go outside, or be dirt poor forever but never get sick again in your life?
11: a wizard offers you immortality in exchange for your two front teeth. do you take it?
12: could you win the hunger games?
13: do you bite your nails?
14: what was the first movie you remember seeing in the theater?
15: do you prefer music with male or female vocalists?
16: you and the love of your life are having a baby, and you get to choose the name! there's only one catch: your partner insists that it be the name of a place, real or fictional. what do you name your baby?
17: if you could reboot or remake any movie, what would it be and who would you cast?
18: if you could automatically know how to speak any language or play any instrument, which would you choose?
19: for you, would getting amnesia be a good thing?
20: if you curse loudly and then realize that there are children nearby, what is your reaction?
21: without looking them up, can you explain the rules of football? how about quidditch? what do you think that says about you?
22: you're in the car, switching channels on the radio when you hear a song that makes you go "oh shit, that's my jam!" what song is it?
23: have you ever bought an item of clothing because it reminded you of something a fictional character would wear?
24: do you ever rehearse or plan conversations before you actually have them?
25: how much black do you wear on a regular basis (not counting funerals)?
26: do you have any tattoos? do you want any?
27: do you know how to pronounce the word "pinochle"?
28: can you think of anything more boring than birdwatching?
29: are you better with numbers or words?
30: at the movies, do you stay for the credits?
31: do you get along better with old people or little kids?
32: what's your best bodily feature, objectively speaking?
33: who is your favorite late night talk show host?

This seems like it's got potential for future blog post fodder. Fingers crossed.

Also, since no post is complete without a cat photo, here is Calvin sitting in two boxes at once:

How about #7, 16 and 21? Or be creative and answer the Prime Numbered questions.

And if you're busy from 7:10 (I assume you meant am) to 9:30 pm, where did you post this from?)

Mom said...

Ok, fun. I am seeking the answers to #3, 14, 17 and 24.

Ah, yes, 7:10am. Oops. And I composed this post yesterday and scheduled it to go live this evening. Only a little bit of cheating.
