Thursday Q & A

Click to get cool Animations for your MySpace profile

I'm always curious about other peoples' habits and idiosyncracies. I always wonder whether they're normal, or whether it's just me. I'd like to think your answers will constitute proof that I'm maybe not as, ahem, crazy as some folks might think. Maybe the girl is just wily -- crazy like a fox. You never know. And you won't, because I do so love to keep you guessing.

1. How many books do you read per week, on average?

2. What, if anything, is hanging from your rearview mirror?

3. Do you carry/wear any object for luck?

4. When you're really thirsty, do you reach for water, juice, or a soda?

5. Will you eat pizza with anchovies on it?

6. What is the weirdest people food your pet loves to eat?

7. Do you prefer a shower or a bath?

8. Do you wear perfume/cologne/after shave on a regular basis? If so, would you care to divulge your favorite scents?

Coming next week (unless I recover first): Piggie Porn. It pales, of course, in comparison to Camille's Lesbian Ghost Porn, but what the hell.

TWISTED LINGUISTICS

catalog tittle - I'm sorry, I'm tittering so hard I can't define this.

desribe - The person who will write it down for you.

You have to be nigh eve to believe - You'll listen to reason only when it's nearly night.

Arian Nation - Prison gang for weenies.

no quam about - We're probably better off not knowing what that is.

Ghoulags - Prisons for ghosts, goblins, and ghouls.

A small zoo in Oklahoma had a very rare species of gorilla. Within a few weeks the gorilla, a female, became very difficult to handle. Upon examination, the veterinarian determined the problem. The gorilla was in season. To make matters worse, there was no male gorilla available anywhere. Thinking about their problem, the zoo keepers thought of Bobby Lee Walton, a redneck part-time worker responsible for cleaning the animal cages. Bobby Lee, like most rednecks, had little sense but possessed ample ability to satisfy a female of any species. The zoo keepers thought they might have a solution. Bobby Lee was approached with a proposition. Would he be willing to mate with the gorilla for $500? Bobby Lee showed some interest, but said he would have to think the matter over carefully. The following day, he announced that he would accept their offer, but only under four conditions:

1. First, Bobby Lee said, I ain't gonna kiss her on the lips. The keeper quickly agreed to this condition.

2. Second, he said, you can't never tell no one about this. The keeper readily agreed to this condition, too.

3. Third, Bobby Lee said, I want all the chil'drun raised as Baptist. Once again it was agreed.

4. And last of all, Bobby Lee stated, you gotta give me another week to come up with the $500.

You Are 24% Weirdo


You're a little weird, but you'd be even weirder if you didn't have a few quirks.
You are just strange enough to know it, but nobody else seems to notice your weirdness.
That's because, deep down, everyone is a little freaky!

You Are 56% Weirdo

You're definitely quite strange, but you can act like a normal person when you have to.
(But just because you can act normally, it certainly doesn't mean you want to!)
You have normal aspects to your personality... but you usually don't choose to emphasize them.

Camille Alexa said...

1. How many books do you read per week, on average?
Right now? Not even one. The more writing I'm doing, the less time/desire I seem to have to read. But then, I'll take a whole weekend off from doing anything but, and I'll read four or five books in a long weekend.

2. What, if anything, is hanging from your rearview mirror?
I don't drive anymore. Never will again, if I can swing it. I do, however, have a collection of robots which live in the van.

3. Do you carry/wear any object for luck?
Does that work?

4. When you're really thirsty, do you reach for water, juice, or a soda?
Sadly, I hate the taste of water (yes it does SO have one!) I also dislike most sodas (irregardless of S's Dr. Pepper tattoo). I have become so accustomed to hydrating by tricking myself into drinking water by filling a glass with about ¾ water and ¼ juice, I can no longer drink pure juice, pure water, or soda at all.

5. Will you eat pizza with anchovies on it?
Not knowingly, nor any other animal bits, even those in marshmallows and vitamins.

6. What is the weirdest people food your pet loves to eat?
Any people food. S and I call it 'dog-manna from heaven' when it drops to the floor.

7. Do you prefer a shower or a bath?
I have an antique clawfoot tub, so it's all good.

8. Do you wear perfume/cologne/after shave on a regular basis? If so, would you care to divulge your favorite scents?
May I decline to answer?

Variant E said...

1. None, unless I travel or camp in which case I can read many (I read fast).
2. My car? Oh wait, the mirror is hanging from that...
3. No, but I avoid walking/running under basketball hoops.
4. Gatoraide
5. Yuck. I don't like really salty things.
6. No pets. I'm gone too much of the time.
7. Shower
8. No cologne, but I use Anthony Logistics for Men (what kind of a name is that????) as a moisturizing cream; keeps my face from turning to leather from all the sun exposure. Smells good too.

Charles said...

There seems to be a very obvious gap in the information from M SJ today.

Serena Joy said...

You are correct, M. Charles. I have been MIA and AWOL, sidetracked, inordinately busy, and just generally out of the loop. But now I'm in, and loopy as hell. I am so enjoying everyone's answers. And yes, I'll tack my own on here in a minute.

I'm fascinated by the neck-in-neck nature of the anchovies vs. hate anchovies question. I'm not that surprised that most of you will drink water when thirsty. I do wonder about the taste of your water, though, Camille. Does ALL water taste bad to you, even bottled? In any event, it IS a good idea to add the fruit juice. And healthy. Oh, and Pinks, honey, vodka is ALWAYS an option.:)

VE's Gatorade is a good choice. And yes, Kan, that's probably an ingredient in soda, too.:)

Kan, I can tell you're feeling feisty today. What ARE you teaching that kitty?:) Come on, you can tell Mama S.:-)

Scary Mon has a rearview lizzard, which for some reason sends me into peals of giggles. I wouldn't mind having one of those, to go along with the rosary that's been hanging off the rearview of every car I've owned since 1976.

You people who go with your natural musky scent strike me as strong, independent types. Frankly, I think the smell of soap and water on a man is a pretty powerful aphrodesiac.:) I like the ladies' choices of scents, too. Pretty! I'm not familiar with your 'Cubano' fragrance, Scary. What it is? Liz, your Chanel favorite is a classic! Yours, too, Mona. And I don't blame you for disliking the Dior.

Charles, I, too, appreciate the lure of Arabica.

Annie, that's so sweet about carrying your beloved's love with you.:)

You all are so interesting and so diverse, and NOT one bit weird.:)

And now I take the dose of my own medicine.

1. How many books do you read per week, on average? 2 or 3, depending on how busy I am and whether I'm writing.

2. What, if anything, is hanging from your rearview mirror? A rosary, mainly because I think it's pretty.

3. Do you carry/wear any object for luck? An opal ring. Again, just because I think it's pretty. But I won't leave home without it.

4. When you're really thirsty, do you reach for water, juice, or a soda? Water

5. Will you eat pizza with anchovies on it? Never!

6. What is the weirdest people food your pet loves to eat?
Sardines. She loves them and swallows them whole.

7. Do you prefer a shower or a bath? Bath. (I have an antique clawfoot tub, too, Camille, and love spending time in it.)

8. Do you wear perfume/cologne/after shave on a regular basis? If so, would you care to divulge your favorite scents? I have basically 3 scents that I've worn for years. I always wear either Je Reviens, Ombre Rose, or Opium.

Charles said...

You only wear that last substance, right?

Serena Joy said...

Yes, Charles. I don't actually think you're supposed to wear the other kind.:-)

Charles said...

I'd really value your opinion of my last post.

Serena Joy said...

Will do, Charles. I'm sorry I missed seeing that you had a new post up. I saw the WMD thingie and forgot that it's staying at the top 'til 2009.:)

Charles said...

Just so you know, I've been insubordinately busy today. :/

Serena Joy said...

I recommend discipline for insubordinates.:-)

tfg said...

1. How many books do you read per week, on average?
0.25, lately

2. What, if anything, is hanging from your rearview mirror?
Work hangtag

3. Do you carry/wear any object for luck?
Nope.

4. When you're really thirsty, do you reach for water, juice, or a soda?
I drink about 120 oz of water a day.

5. Will you eat pizza with anchovies on it?
Hells no.

6. What is the weirdest people food your pet loves to eat?
Watermelon

7. Do you prefer a shower or a bath?
Depends on who I am with.

8. Do you wear perfume/cologne/after shave on a regular basis? If so, would you care to divulge your favorite scents?
Sometimes.

Charles said...

Is that your real mail addy?

Serena Joy said...

Your answer to #4 doesn't surprise me, T. As hot as it can get where you spend your days, I'd bet there are days when it's even more than that. I used to have a dog that liked watermelon, but I've never seen another one that did. They're really funny when they eat it, aren't they? Your #7 -- so true!

The addy on my profile, Charles? Yes, it works.

Hale McKay said...

1) zero
2) an air freshener shaped like two cherries on a stem
3) A $1 token from Foxwoods Casino (Never been there - found it)
4) soda - coke classic
5)no - hold the anchovies -
6) the dogs will eat anything. The cats:
Sasafrass - Cheetos
Oreo: Hostess Twinkies
Smokey: Cheez-its
7) shower
8) Stetson

I declare, I think Bobby Lee Walton must be related to the Clyde family; Cletus, Clem and Pappy.

Serena Joy said...

Yeah, Mike, Stetson smells pretty good. LOL at the Clyde family. Bobby Lee would fit in real well. LOL.

Hey, Kanrei has a kitty named Oreo, too. That's so cool!

G-Man said...

2. ...Hanging from rearview mirror?
"A pair of Red Fuzzy Dice"
( They also light up )

5....Anchovies?
"HELL YES"...At work, If your lunch gets interupted and you must leave for a while...
Those salty little lunch savers will assure me that no free loaders will scarf it up on you"!!

8.....Cologne?
Drakkar Noir
Polo
Halsten-Z-14


And Serena...?
I am 100% Weird..
You put the "irk" in Quirk!!

Thanks...That was fun!!

Serena Joy said...

All righty, then, G-man -- fuzzy red light-up dice. LOL. So, anchovies serve as place holders, but you wouldn't actually EAT them, would you?

Drakkar Noir, Polo, Halsten-Z-14 -- ooooooooo, those smell good.

100% weird, huh? And Serena thought she was quirky.:-)

snowelf said...

1. How many books do you read per week, on average?

I usually read one book a month.

2. What, if anything, is hanging from your rearview mirror?

A snowflake necklace from my friend CIA. It's very dear to me and so is he. :)

3. Do you carry/wear any object for luck?

Nope! I make my own luck!! ;)

Depends on where I am...usually water at home, or crystal light, at school it's usually diet soda if I don't have a water bottle with me.

5. Will you eat pizza with anchovies on it?
Probably? I've never had it. But I really like pineapple.

--snow

Serena Joy said...

Lee, I think I can honestly say I've never seen a cat eat spaghetti. LOL. I had no idea that cats would beg for what you're eating like dogs do.:)

Lord love Bobby Lee, Steve. LOL.

Grunt! Your parakeet drank chocolate milk? Amazing! Hey, clean trumps perfume any time, and I'm sure your dates appreciate it.:)

Snow, the snowflake necklace sounds so pretty. And another spaghetti-eating kitty! :-) Your cherry blossom perfume sounds delightful.

puerileuwaite said...

My belated answers:

1) At least one: Serena. I read her like a book.

2) A fake badge. It gets me a little more respect on the road.

3) A condom. Every 5-years or so, I replace it with a fresh one. Oh wait. You said "luck", not "hope". Nevermind.

4) Mother's Milk from the closest recepticle. Sure this makes for some awkward moments, but I just don't trust the government and their so-called "innocently flouridated water".

5) No thanks. When eating pizza, YOURS TRULY provides the whiskers.

6) Frozen TV dinners. I know it's probably bad for him, but if you could only see the Pug with his little ice chipper and goggles, you'd know why I have to feed his habit.

7) Both actually. I like to take a bath with the door open while the ladies have their Bridal and Baby showers.

8) I use a liquid-based Spanish Fly. So far that's all it seems to attract.

puerileuwaite said...

Oops. I missed one. I meant "fluoridated water". Honestly, WHO puts a u before an o ?

Serena Joy said...

You are a true Renaissance man, Puggy. I fear I have no choice but to run away with you. Pack up the badge and the Spanish Fly and, yeah, the good luck thingie, and we shall fly away. Don't forget the parachutes. And the Pug's little goggles and ice chipper.:)
