All the accolades people! It will only be a matter of time though before @TheBloggess is begging me to be her partner-in-blog.
I was tagged “IT” today in some sort of hay-wire internet tag game. It’s one of those games that you don’t even know you’re playing and then, BAM, you’re “It”.
I was tagged by someone I have never read or met until today, nor he me. Like that wasn’t confusing. Anyway – I like his style and am now following his page. Also, He’s in Canada. Which means:
1) He can brew beer, and who doesn’t need friends that brew beer?
2) He can play hockey and lacrosse.
3) He has a pet polar bear.
4) He loves Rush.
5) He has a HAM Radio.
I’m a Canadian Expert. I’ve seen Strange Brew a gazillion times. Which reminds me, I’m pretty sure he’s not a hoser. Check him out here: Drinking Tips for Teens.
The rules of this one were:
1. Post the rules. (Done.)
2. Post a photo of yourself and eleven random facts about you. (Nope. I did that on the other day here.)
3. Answer the questions given to you in the tagger’s post. (Okay – that I can do. Below.)
4. Create eleven new questions and tag new people to answer them. (Nope. See 2.)
5. Go to their blog/twitter and let them know they have been tagged. (Also nope. Sorry, Ross – I warned you I didn’t play fair. I really just did this because I liked the questions and didn’t want to be a spoil sport. Also it gave me a chance to wow my readers with my extensive knowledge of Canada)
The guy with the bear and the beer asked me this:
- What’s that behind you? Nemo. You know, the one from the movie, except pillow sized because Tomboy Princess had a nightmare last night and slept in my bed.
- Scooby-Doo or Looney Tunes? As much as I love Shaggy, I’m going to have to say Looney Tunes. Did you ever watch Animaniacs? Genius.
- Are you sure? No. And I’ll wake up at 2:00 tomorrow morning and worry about everything I posted. That’s the only part I’m sure about. So, I guess that makes my answer “Yes.”
- Where do you go to find peace, and do you need reservations? Here and no. Just a phone call from a friend inviting me down.
- What’s the best thing a complete stranger has ever said to you? Dangit. I tried to answer this with a funny response and I keep backspacing it. ”You have such a sweet, beautiful family.” – and they’re right. I do.
- Would you rather visit a museum or shop for shoes? My weekend plans depend on your answer so think about it. I said THINK! Is there a rule in Canada against doing two things in one day that I don’t know about? Don’t limit yourself like that, dude.
- This would make a good country song about genetics: “My Dad Gave Me the Nose (But My Mom Gave Me the Finger).” Yes or no? Yes. Yes it would. But only if Weird Al sang it. Do they have a Weird Al in Canada? Or do you all use the same Weird Al we do?
- Come up with a better one then, if you’re so smart. Not falling for your Canadian reverse psychology trick, but it was a nice try. Well played, North, well played.
- I was at the liquor store one day stocking up on wine – five bottles to be precise. As he was ringing them up, the clerk said, “If you run out, we close at 5:30.” Witty or rude? I laughed.
- Getting dressed with the shades up is like _________. Complete this simile. Getting dressed with the shades up is like….Eh? That is SO not a question.
- Is getting blog-tagged more work than you bargained for at this point? Well. Yes. But only up until 10.
