Friday Follies

It is that time of the week again. Time to play our getting to know you game. Time for me to think of new and exciting questions to ask. Time for me to be like Pooh. And think-think-think. And get a huge crease in my forehead from thinking. Because I can't think of any more either or questions.

You are going on Jeopardy. What charity will you play for?

What category do you hope will show up because you'll sweep the board?

What category do you hope they will not include?

What blogger do you not want to play against in Jeopardy so that your charity has the chance to win big?

I so wanted to come up with 10 Jeopardy related questions. But I cannot think of anymore. Moving on...

What is your favorite flower?

If you could live in any home from a TV series, which would you pick?

What is your favorite Muppet movie?

What did you eat for lunch yesterday?

What is your favorite word?

What is the worst tasting thing you've ever eaten?

I'd play for the National Headache Foundation.

I'd hope for Spelling.

Uh-Oh Opera.

I don't want to play against you! I bet you'd be pretty good.

Moving on...

The Peony is my favorite flower. I looooove big, fat, fluffy peonies.

I liked Monica and Rachel's apartment on Friends. (I like open living spaces.)

THE Muppet Movie is my favorite.

Frosted Mini-Wheats

My favorite word is "butterbean."

I've never tasted anything that tastes worse than liver.

Swirl Girl said...

1) I'd play for American Cancer Society

2) Hope they have 70's TV

3) Hope they don't have Elizabethan Era English Nobles

4) Lula when it comes to music

5) love iris and tulips

6) hands down - it's the Mary Tyler Moore 3 story Victorian ...but I'd move it away from Minneapolis and make it a single family

7) Take Manhattan of course


9) I love the way certain words puddle and onomatopoeia.

10) it's an illegal fungi...'nuf said

Anonymous said...

Suzann @ Lavender and Roses said...

Yikes. My first Friday Questions....
I would play for some abused women/children charity

Useless trivia would be my best category

History & Geography cannot be included

I need to play alone, all alone

Fav flower? Tulip

TV Series home? The Ingalls house - from Little House on the Prairie

Muppets? THE Muppet Movie

Lunch? I didn't eat lunch

Favorite Word? Love

Worst thing I've ever eaten? Mussles

Jen said...

I don't want anything to do with Jeopardy.
I don't have a favorite flower
the mom's house from Brothers and Sisters
don't like the Muppets, they kinda scare me.
Seriously and Totally.
worst tasting thing, well I can't think of anything that I didn't like. Maybe thats why my hips are that size that they are.

Rhea said...

My charity would be something for sick kids, most likely. No animals or old people, even though I love both, of course. lol

I'd rock at a category about Harry Potter or Twilight. hehe

I would suck at a movie or music trivia category. Because I grew up isolated on a ranch with no TV or music, I swear.

I would not want to play against you, Kat, because of your amazing Trivia-brain and your amazing music prowess. Plus you and your hubby always win.

I think my favorite flower is the gigantic sunflower.

I think I'd want to live in the hatch on Lost. Ok, just kidding, that would totally freak me out.

There was more than one muppet movie? Ok, confession time...muppets kind of freak me out.

I'm not sure I ate lunch yesterday. Probably pink frosted sugar cookies...

My favorite word these days is fantabulous. Maybe.

Worst tasting thing...I have a long list of bad tasting things. I can't stand seafood...certain veggies are ban from my table...

KimmyJ said...

I'd play for battered and abused women and children


Anything math related - as Barbie would say, "math is hard"

Why you, Kitty Kat Sunshine! (suck up)

Lavendar Roses, hydrangea, Sunflowers

Brother's and Sister's mom house

Emmett Otters Jug Band Christmas, baby!

Shrimp and Grits - sooo good!

Too many to count, I love words.

Anchovies - icky poo poo

Rhea said...

OH, I love saying "Bloody Brilliant" in an English accent.

Hot Tub Lizzy said...

United Cerebral Palsy and Alzheimers Assocation

80's Television


Um - KAT!!!!!

Tulip & hydragenas

Do you remember the show "The Hogan Family"? They had a Craftsman Bungelow that I ADORED!

The Muppet Movie (Da' flim is okey-dokey), Muppet Christmas Carol (Light the lamp, not the rate, light the lamp!!!!) and Emmit Otter's Jugband Christmas.

Hot ham & cheese sandwhich.



Kori said...

Oh gee. I'll be back later to do this after I've had my 3rd cup of coffee.

Not enough caffeine to think right now.

Lula! said...

My Charity is the Fund for Lula's Desire to Smoke With Jason or Rob Sometime in the Next Five Years.

I'm kidding.
Anything to do with cancer, particuarly colon or breast. I hate cancer. I love my colon and breasts.

Music Trivia.

Geography. Where is Ida-HO?

YOU--in Geography or any kind of foreign language/studies stuff.

Tulips & Peonies

Not a TV series, but I always loved the home in the Father of the Bride movies.

The Muppets Take Manhattan!!!!

I'm not telling what I ate for lunch yesterday. Heather B. knows, though. That's all I'm saying.

Y'all...seriously...totally...wait, favorite word or the ones I use ALL THE TIME? Yeesh.

Dog Soup. On an Arabic ship in Cork Port, Co. Cork, Ireland. Yes, dog soup. With the Arab men looking on. Now THAT is how much I love Jesus.

Finding Normal said...

March of Dimes or Ronald McDonald House. Those are the 2 I do the most with now.

I'll go with Sesame Street characters since that's what we're watching right now.



Stargazer lily

I'm with tatooedminivan--give me a Real World house!

Not a fan of the Muppets, didn't even know there was more than one.

Turkey sandwich and pretzels at the park. MOTY made a picnic!

Gynormous and asshat. Sometimes together.

I don't eat things that taste bad!

Here's an idea--have a guest questioner! I could totally come up with some questions, then you linky me.

Amy said...

I need some personal charity, but if I had to give it away, I'd say something for some sort of cancer.

My category would have to be 80's music.

I'd lose everything on a geography or history category...I suck at that.

The rose is my favorite flower.

any of the homes from Desperate Houswives, they are all gorgeous!

Never did any Muppets movies.

Taco Bell. Soft tacos. Supreme.


turnips.....gross! :D

Kat said...

I had my answers almost done and then my computer crashed. Ughh! Now I have to remember my bits of brilliance.

Lutheran World Relief

children's lit


Jennifer P. I have heard that she doesn't forget anything.

alstromerias (and I love that my husband gets them for me on Valentine's day. And the florist must be convinced that he will be in the dog house when he comes home with this $4 a dozen bunch of flowers. I think that these are one of the rare inexpensive things that I love!)

The Cosby's brownstone.

Muppets from Space. I love muppet movies. But the best parts of them are all the "guest stars." Like in this one you'll find Ray Liotta, David Arquette, Josh Charles, F Murray Abraham, Kathy Griffin, Jeffrey Tambor, and even Katie Holmes in an uncredited role. Hmmm...maybe I should add movies to my Jeopardy category that I want to see!

Ham sandwich and doritos.

I love words. Especially five dollar words. Like puerile. And pulchritude. And wax rasphodic. And schadenfreude.

Lately - that five minute chocolate cake that came from an email recipe that is making the rounds. Vile. Really.

Brandy said...

LOA - League of Old Americans

80's music


You! All those books you read...sheesh, I'd be lost. And Lula cause I know pop culture but I think she would blow me out of the water

Tiger Lilly

The Waltons - I love big porches

Emmit Otter's Jugband Christmas


Honestly, it's honestly lately. I cannot start a sentence without saying it...honestly.

Gina said...

I dont want to play today. My husband calls me Madam Jeopardy- but only because I know more useless junk than anyone else living here. If I actually had to face off with any of you I would be afraid I would find out just how "unsmarticle" I am.

Carrie said...

Hey there! Hating Feedjit is completely and totally irrational and ridiculous, but what can I say? I'm just that way!

But you can get all the items you mentioned on Sitemeter and more details even! You just have to click around. It took me a while to find all the features, but you can get page entry rankings, sort by referrals, location, entry page, or exit page. To get more info, you just click the visit number.

That's pretty cool that CNN linked to you! I know a famous blogger now! Seriously, none of the other famous bloggers ever talk to me! " )

And might I just say WOH! to the PhD in Forensic Anthropology!! AWESOME!!! May I ask how you're going to use it?

My father was a mortician and I thought for a long time about becoming a medical examiner, but I couldn't get over the smells. I suppose that's why I didn't go into the medical field at all. I have a hard time with smells period!

WOW! This could take me as long as the 7 random things meme!! I'll attempt to answer all these questions quickly, but don't be surprised if I stop in the middle because I'm laaaay-zeeee!

My charity would be Lions Clubs Intl. It is a charity that assists persons with visual or hearing impairment. It's off the beaten path, but still a very deserving charity/service organization.

My kicka$$ category would be Lines from Stupid Comedy Movies.

I could probably make up my losses if Geography appeared in the first round. But I go down in flames if it appeared in double jeopardy.

I could kick any blogger's butt!! haha It's all about the confidence, baby!

I think Calla Lillies are the most beautiful flowers!! But Sunflowers are also quite alluring!

Remember Full House?? I would never want to live in San Francisco, but I love the style of those kinds of houses in San Fran! I don't remember what it looked like on the inside, but who cares when it looks that pretty on the outside??

My favorite Muppet Movie is ALL OF THEM! I love the first one because it is just plain awesome and the songs are amazing! But in Manhattan, Piggy and Kermie get married! I remember going to that in the theatre with my Dad as a little girl! I could talk about the Muppets forever...Oh yeah, and BEAKER RULES!! mee meee mee me

Lunch yesterday was leftover Green Goddess Pork Chops, grilled zucchini and summer squash, and strawberries.

My favorite word?? BALDERDASH!!!

The worst tasting thing I've ever eaten was raw squid at a very expensive sushi restaurant. It started out firm, then immediately turned liquid when I started to chew it and THEN started to firm back up. Uuuuuuuuuugh! It was 11 years ago and it still gives me the iggles. blech!! I couldn't swallow it! Don't get me wrong, I LOVES me some sushi, but this was apalling!!

Feee-yoof! I can't believe I finished! That only took an hour or two! " )

I watched the first few episodes of "Brothers and Sisters" last year and loved loved loved Sally Field's house on that show.
