How Well Do You Know

There is this new humiliating way to embarrass ourselves floating around Facebook and it is called ‘the quiz about [insert friend’s name here]’. We are responsible for creating our own quiz as well as the answers and then our friends respond by choosing the correct one; then we get to harass them if they only get a few right because, well, shouldn’t they know everything about us? I mean we are friends on Facebook; clearly we should have total access to each other’s lives. Right?

So of course, all joking aside, I want to create one of these because I am completely smitten with silly quizzes and dumb surveys but I am having some trouble with the questions. I am going for ten questions about me. I want the questions and the answers to be as random as I am, but not so out there that it might be too hard to guess. Here is an example of what I’m thinking:

My favorite Chinese cookie fortune says:

♥ A modest man never talks to himself
♥ Those who live in glass houses should wear a robe
♥ Love all, trust a few
♥ Learn Chinese -- Chicken: ròu, Lucky Numbers 4, 8, 15, 16, 23, 42

So now I have to somehow come up with nine more of those. Any suggestions?

You get bonus points if you pick the right answer to this one. What are the bonus points good for you might ask? Well they are the key to my heart that is all. It only takes a few points to make it all the way to my heart so when you score your eleven on this question you are well on your way. That is, if you are not there already.

If stranded on a deserted tropical island the one thing I would want to have is:
a.) a king size waterbed.
b.) DVD's of every episode of Lost in Space, The Beverly Hillbillies, and Gilligan's Island.
c.) a years supply of twinkies

OMG Almost Precious that is a great question haha!! Hmmm, I'll have to go with c since I could probably make a waterbed & without a tv or electricity, well b would be awful tough to watch haha!!

oh man. i did that quiz. i love fb quizzes. except the one that tells you what body part you are. because the body part that was "chosen" for me made my eyes burn. i had to bleach my brain.

anyhow. i wish i had included this question on my quiz:

if i carried a flask, what would it contain:

a. water
b. vodka
c. milk
d. chicken noodle soup
e. grape jelly

feel free to use that question.

Funny you should present that question Wendi...I was just discussing with a friend that my "age I did my first illegal substance" question could not include underage drinking because I do not remember how old I was when they put the whiskey in my baby bottle.

Would have to go with d on this one...although the chunks might get stuck?
