Lazy Friday blog post: “Stuff about me” quiz

Seeing as this is Friday, and I am lazy AND running late, I decided to take a short-cut. I hope it is at least mildly entertaining.

A Facebook friend “tagged” me with the following, but since I have no idea what that means or what to do with it, I decided to copy the quiz and use it for a blog post. I may not be tech-savvy, but I’m resourceful!

Please feel free to do the same. If you do so and want me to read it, just leave a comment to let me know where to find it. Have a great Friday!

1. What time did you get up this morning? Alarm went off at 5:45 a.m. Feet hit the floor ten minutes later.

2. How do you like your steak? Medium. Pink in the middle is nice.

4. What is your favorite TV show? Don’t watch TV.

5. If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be? Someplace where I didn’t need a car.

6. What did you have for breakfast? Smoothie made with strawberries, hemp milk, whey protein, and flax seed oil. Yum!

7. What is your favorite cuisine? Malaysian, because it incorporates elements of so many other delectable cuisines.

8. What foods do you dislike? Too salty and too sweet.

12. What are your favorite clothes? Loose and flowing, like robes or muu-muus.

13. Where would you visit if you had the chance? Anywhere extraterrestrial

14. Cup 1/2 empty or 1/2 full? By definition it has to be both (I’m a double Libra, after all), but the empty half isn’t really of much use now, is it?

15. Where would you want to retire? Somewhere that I didn’t need a car.

16. Favorite time of day? Evening/late night (10 p.m. to 2:00 a.m. is my peak time.)

18. What is your favorite sport to watch? Baseball

19. Who do you think will not tag you back? What is this “tag” of which you speak?

20. Person you expect to tag you back first? Again I ask, what is “tag”?

25. Any new and exciting news you’d like to share? I’ve been nominated for the Nobel prize in bulls**ting.

26. What did you want to be when you were little? First a doctor, then a pilot, then an astronaut. Didn’t follow through on that too well, did I?

27. What is your best childhood memory? My relationships with trees, the big maple in the back yard and the ancient juniper at church camp in particular.

28. Are you a cat or dog person? Yes.

29. Are you married? Yes. (Is it just me, or are some of these questions pretty uninteresting?)

30. Always wear your seat belt? Yes, and my car doesn’t move until everyone else is wearing theirs as well.

31. Been in a car accident? A couple: one very traumatic in childhood, though no one was hurt, and one minor fender-bender (literally) in adulthood. I was not driving in either case.

32. Any pet peeves? “all about me” quizzes that ask stupid and uninteresting questions.

33. Favorite Pizza Toppings? Anything but anchovies, though I’m rather partial to a white pie with fresh tomato, fresh basil, and garlic.

  1. Great answers. I really liked your answer to the half empty/half full question. You are absolutely right. Ha!

    • Jennifer Barricklow

      My first thought when I saw the quiz was, “Not another one of these!” But then I looked at some of the questions and they seemed better than, “What color socks are you wearing right now?” which seems to be a common type of question on those quizzes. Maybe that would be a good INDUSTRIOUS (as opposed to lazy) post one of these days: write a “stuff about me” quiz with really good questions.

      Thanks for stopping by! 🙂

  2. Hey, we have a lot in common!

    Happy belated birthday, fellow Libran. (noted from your other blog)

    • Jennifer Barricklow

      Thank you! And a happy belated birthday to you, too — I missed you by a couple of days. (You actually may consider yourself lucky because you weren’t subjected to my atrocious FB birthday singing.)

      I didn’t realize you are a fellow Libran: I thought the sun usually moves into Scorpio around the 22nd or so. That’s cool!

      Thanks, too, for giving me the blog post inspiration! 🙂

  3. Fun!
    I do love the quizzes…

    • Jennifer Barricklow

      I actually enjoy them, too, so long as they don’t have too many questions of the colored sock variety. 😉
