1. If you were a piece of jewelry, what would you be? I would be PAINITE. It’s the rarest gemstone in the world. There are only 18 known specimens of it.

2. If you were a flower, what kind would you be? I would be Epiphyllum oxypetalum. It is a plant which flowers bloom at midnight. There are only 50 known and is considered one of the rarest flowers in the world.

3. If you were a castle, would you be found in the British Isles or the Carpathian Mountains? Neither. I’d be in Prague. I’d be the Castle of Prague, both the earliest and largest castle in the world.

4. If you were a bird, which one would you be? I would be an Australian Parradise Parrot. One hasn’t been confirmed by sight since 1927 but Australia is a big country and it is conceivable they are still out there.

5. If you were a color, would you be bold and primary or soft and pastel? Bold and primary. I loathe pastel…it represents sub-development housing around here because they always use pastel colors; particularly beige.

6. If you were a beast of burden, would you rather be a camel, elephant, or donkey? Probably a donkey, I’ve always been a smartass.

7. If you were a pot, would you be cast iron, aluminum, copper, or stainless steel? I’d be a crock pot. It is actually the most efficient means of cooking as almost none of the heat is lost to the outside of the pot.

8. If you were a candy bar, which one would you be? I would be a bar made with Chocopologie chocolate by Knipschildt. It is a hand made chocolate with 70 percent Valrhona cocoa powder rolled over French Black truffle and sells for $5,200 a pound! The most expensive chocolate in the world.

9. If you were a mint, would you be peppermint, spearmint, or wintergreen? I would be a mint julep from the Kentucky Derby. You will only be able to get 50 of these fine mint juleps. They are made with ice from the artic circle, as well as mint from Morocco. The sugar is from the South Pacific. You will be able to sip it through a silver straw and a gold plated cup. Cost: $1000

10. If you were a spice, do you think you'd be thyme, cumin, sage, or cayenne pepper? I would be Saffron; the most expensive Spice in the world. Made from dried stigmas of the purple saffron crocus, it takes anything from 70,000 to 250,000 flowers to make one pound of saffron. Moreover, the flowers have to be individually hand-picked in the autumn when fully open. On the plus side, you only need a very little amount to add taste and aroma. Too much and it might be lethal.

Yeah, I'm not reading too much into your definitions, /t., but I AM wondering what kind of soap you're using.:)

I like parrots, VE. They come in such pretty primary colors -- of which I had no doubt you'd be one. You're definitely not the pastel type. I've never heard of Chocopologie, and certainly can't afford it, but I'd sure like to try it. I have had saffron; it's good.:)

Good to know you're still around, Kan. Hope you're not working yourself to death.:)

Your #1 answer doesn't surprise me in the least, Roxan. Oooh, and orchids -- beautiful! Yes, you, too, are a bold color; one just knows that instinctively. I'd have answered #7 the same way you did.:)

Yay, Kan's definitions today! And you done good, kiddo.:D

I love the depth of your answers, NYD. A rose is a thing of beauty, but it can be lethal unless handled carefully. Yes, only primary colors for you, too; most apropos. #6: Oh? Where might one obtain one of those? The only one I have a reference point on is more like a stubborn draft mule. #8: Of course, you can be Cracker Jacks!:)

The way this works, Galen, is, I think it up, you play along and answer in a manner I find pleasing. Easy! Hood ornaments as jewelry? When did that happen? That must be some ugly-ass bling. #3: Faith Castle? Where that be? In a land where belief is occasionally suspended? Galen, Galen -- pink is MY color. Trust me, it would make your complexion look sallow and you wouldn't look at all good in it. #6: Geez! #8: I love those, too; just had one, as a matter of fact.:D

Pink said...

I'm also interested in /t's brand of soap and where I can buy it!

1. If you were a piece of jewelry, what would you be?

AN EMERALD ANYTHING!

2. If you were a flower, what kind would you be?

PINK

3. If you were a castle, would you be found in the British Isles or the Carpathian Mountains?

EGYPT


4. If you were a bird, which one would you be?

LOUD AND CHIRPY

5. If you were a color, would you be bold and primary or soft and pastel?

PINK! WHAT PART OF PINK DON'T YOU UNDERSTAND???

6. If you were a beast of burden, would you rather be a camel, elephant, or donkey?

A PINK PANTHER

7. If you were a pot, would you be cast iron, aluminum, copper, or stainless steel?

COLUMBIAN GOLD


8. If you were a candy bar, which one would you be?

YUMMY

9. If you were a mint, would you be peppermint, spearmint, or wintergreen?

WINTERGREEN - HOT HOT HOT!

10. If you were a spice, do you think you'd be thyme, cumin, sage, or cayenne pepper?

CAYENNE BABY!

Serena Joy said...

I love emeralds, too, Pinks. It's my birthstone. #2: But mais oui! And ditto on #5. #7: Right on! #10 is YOU, for sure.:)

I didn't watch the telethon
About the lovely rhododendron,
I was downloading duck hawk files
About those birds flying in the British Isles.

My blue desk top, bold and primary
Depicts an elephant that's contrary,
And his truck swings a cast iron pot
On 5th Avenue at a Yankee sot.
Chewing Spearmint gum the pachyderm schlepper
Ended back in India when he sneezed on a cayenne pepper.

Of course, there's extra credit, Mike. Love the idea of your warmish British castle. I think maybe rhododendrum would grow there, too. Love what you did with your words. And -- you did the poetry, too! Yay!!:)

LMAO, Sling. That's the only thing "trumpled" COULD mean.:D

I don't think I've ever seen a fig flower, Charles. I'll have to look it up and see what it looks like. #3: Do they have castles in Arizona? Hmmm. #9: I have a pack of wintergreen mints in my purse. Great job on the definitions, dude. I just love your take on "co-hoot's." :)
