The Thursday Q & A

Make your own clipart like this @ www.TXT2PIC.com
My poor disjointed thoughts are all over the map today, so bear with me as I run you through your regularly scheduled Inquisition session.

1. When you're feeling down, what do you do to try and pep yourself up?
2. How many pairs of shoes do you have? Your best guesstimate will do.
3. How long has it been since you tossed out most of your household accoutrements and redecorated?
4. When did you last purchase something online? And if you want to tell me what it was, I'm all ears. I love shopping details, any way I can get them.
5. When was the last time you did something that caused you a little guilt?
6. If you watch TV, what's your favorite (a) network program and (b) cable program?
7. What is the most artistic project you've ever tackled? And how did it turn out?
8. What color is your cell phone?

Words Gone Wild were marched before the TWISTED LINGUISTICS tribunal today. Sentencing is up to you guys.

intertested - Mixing Math and English questions on the same exam.

The rest are all yours to figure out. I've had a long week, full of night sweats and fever dreams. My brain is sore and worn out.

I like the results I got from today's quiz. Very much. Which is not to say that most of it is not pure bunk. For example, I'm about as far from a Type A personality as they get. You guys try it, though, and share your results.







What Serena Means


You are the total package - suave, sexy, smart, and strong.

You work hard not to rock the boat. Your easy going attitude brings people together.
At times, you can be a little flaky and irresponsible. But for the important things, you pull it together.

You have a ton of energy, and most people can't handle you. You're very intense.
You definitely are a handful, and you're likely to get in trouble. But your kind of trouble is a lot of fun.

You are very intuitive and wise. You understand the world better than most people.
You also have a very active imagination. You often get carried away with your thoughts.
You are prone to a little paranoia and jealousy. You sometimes go overboard in interpreting signals.

1. When you're feeling down, what do you do to try and pep yourself up?
Play my old rock albums at the loudest possible volume and dance around the living room like I'm havin a kinniption fit!

2. How many pairs of shoes do you have? Your best guesstimate will do.
Fourteen. That's not including specialty sports wear.

3. How long has it been since you tossed out most of your household accoutrements and redecorated?
Huh? Throw away a perfectly good bean bag chair? Are you kidding???

4. When did you last purchase something online? And if you want to tell me what it was, I'm all ears. I love shopping details, any way I can get them.
I have never made an online purchase other than airline tickets. If you want shopping stories I'll have to put my wife on the line.

5. When was the last time you did something that caused you a little guilt?
Dou you want the answer in minutes or hours? I tend to do something either nasty or selfish at least once a day. Makes me feel like a kid.

If I'm inclined to watch the tube pretty much anything will do.

7. What is the most artistic project you've ever tackled? And how did it turn out?
This is a tough one. I've been a singer in a band and written plays. Had my photographs on display and been a music DJ and taught science on radio. I might not be considered an artist, but all of theses things and many more have given me great satisfaction, so I guess they were all a success.

8. What color is your cell phone?
Orange and black with lots of great ring tones and flashing lights.
Kinda like Christmas and Halloween wrapped up in one handful of fun.

1. When you're feeling down, what do you do to try and pep yourself up?

Stilts. It's hard to be down when you are so up...

2. How many pairs of shoes do you have? Your best guesstimate will do.

I have 27 pair but don't tell any of the other guys...

3. How long has it been since you tossed out most of your household accoutrements and redecorated?

I like to toss them into the backyard on a regular basis. It's fun to shock the neighbors with a bunch of couches and entertainment systems all stacked up there like a dump heap.

4. When did you last purchase something online? And if you want to tell me what it was, I'm all ears. I love shopping details, any way I can get them.

5. When was the last time you did something that caused you a little guilt?

Guilt is for the weak and having the situation is for those not in control of their own ethic and value systems. Do it and enjoy it or don't but don't feel guilty about it.

I gave up on watching TV many years ago. I just watch movies.

When I saw Roxan had put an image in her profile, I changed the Page Style to No Style in Firefox, and now I've read she has mentioned the "little hand gesture." What is she a clock? That picture must have been taken at five or six o'clock, because you can't see the big hand even though you can see her whole face (and her face hole.) hehehehehhahahahahaha!

G watches David Caruso? OMG!

Serena Joy said...

LOL, NYD. I thought I was the only one who did #1. I'm also laughing at your #3. I guess that's a guy thing, huh?:) Yeah, have your wife call me; I just love all shopping stories. Re #7 -- wow! You've done a lot of stuff.

Okay, Roxan -- what did you do in #5? Inquiring minds want to know.:-)

Now I want some stilts, VE. LOL! #3 -- damn, you live next door to Britney? I agree -- who on earth would buy a phone at 7-11? But -- what's a Virgin phone? Never been used?:) Love your #5; my sentiments exactly.

Fire it up, Galen.:) #2 -- 20? Now I know you'll never get on me about my number.:) #6 -- yeah! And don't forget 'Criminal Minds.' #7 is so true of you -- true works of art. So THAT'S what your name means. Works for me.:-)

I agree with your #1, Charles. It really does work; most of the time, anyway. It's ALL attitude. LOL at your #3. I learn SO much about guys here. #7 -- seriously? That sounds beautiful! Thanks for another fine job of defining Words Gone Wild. You get a lot of these turkeys that I can't come up with a damn thing for.:-)

Everybody has cool phone colors, and I'm loving the name analyses.

I always come to your blog on Fridays looking for a 55 Flash Fiction story, and end up finding your Thursday Q&As... I'm so glad you posted the rules last week so I know how to play along... I love this!

1. When you're feeling down, what do you do to try and pep yourself up?
I put on my favorite music and crank it up loud... preferably with headphones so I can completely drown out the world. Yes, I'm aware of the damage I'm doing to my hearing. No, I don't really care. *chuckle*

2. How many pairs of shoes do you have? Your best guesstimate will do.
I left three or so pairs behind when my ex-boyfriend sent me home without telling me it was a one-way trip, but I think about them wistfully. Here I have two more pairs that I actually wear, plus some flip-flops for the summertime (do those count as shoes?) and then about three or four more pairs that I haven't worn in years.

3. How long has it been since you tossed out most of your household accoutrements and redecorated?
I've never done this. But, then, I've never been wealthy enough to do this. *sigh*

4. When did you last purchase something online? And if you want to tell me what it was, I'm all ears. I love shopping details, any way I can get them.
I bought several Christmas presents online, some in the last days right before Christmas... specifically, I bought a plush kitty backpack for my brother's girlfriend, and some toys for my cousin's kids.

5. When was the last time you did something that caused you a little guilt?
Three days ago. And it came back to bite me in the behind yesterday. *sigh* But it's all sorted now.

6. If you watch TV, what's your favorite (a) network program and (b) cable program?
(a) The Office
(b) Colbert Report

7. What is the most artistic project you've ever tackled? And how did it turn out?
Hrm... that really depends on what you call art. My dad is very encouraging of my cross-stitches (portraits of real people, made from photos)... Click here to see one. They look really spiffy once matted and framed. *assure*

8. What color is your cell phone?
*eyes it* Um... that weird silverish color that's as metallic as plastic can get.

Serena Joy said...

Hello again, Smarmoofus. Great answers! Loud music seems to have a therapeutic effect on many of us. I say, crank it up! #2 -- yes, flip-flops absolutely count, especially when they have beads and sequins and such.:) I bought last-minute Christmas gifts online, too. I love the convenience of it. Sorry #5 came back to bite you, but I'm glad it worked out. #7 -- I'd certainly qualify that as artistic! Beautiful job.:)
