Bits and Pieces #2

For the first time ever I have been tagged by the source of a meme. Fatman was feeling a little bored and came up with these questions. His challenge:

'Answer the questions in any way you like. Some seem gender specific but try and think outside the box and see what they mean to you beyond the obvious. Or not'.

  1. beer or wine vodka and coke.
  2. coffee or tea peppermint tea of course!
  3. sweet or savoury depends on my mood, I'd usually say sweet but lately have preferred savoury.
  4. blonde or brunette brunette as in me and what I prefer.
  5. tall or short tall as in me and what I prefer.
  6. skinny or curvy curvy is way sexier on a woman but I like my men straight (in both senses of the word)!
  7. beard or shaved don't think I could manage to grow a beard (not prepared to try either), I prefer men shaved as well.
  8. marmite or jam what? no contest, marmite, marmite, marmite (unless I'm eating a scone then I'd prefer jam)!
  9. city or beach both, I live in a city yet five minutes walk from a beach. Shame about the Irish weather.
  10. movie or book book, there are more good books than good movies.
  11. revenge or forgive forgive, although sometimes revenge can be sweet.
  12. meat or veg if I had to choose...veg, there's more variety.
  13. spit or swallow I swallow my tea but spit out my toothpaste!
  14. gym or sofa tennis court.
  15. cat or dog dog.
  16. breast or bum I prefer to eat a chicken breast (especially with a bacon rasher wrapped around it), I think I'd pass on a chickens butt!
  17. GSOH or good looking GSOH all the way.
  18. left or right I'm right handed.
  19. monarchy or republic I quite like being from a country that has a monarchy.
I tag the following, only if you want to, mum, enidd, Little Miss Moi, Emma, catwoman, Karmyn and anyone else who fancies having a go.

On a lighter note:

This is the fairy tale that we should have been reading as little girls!

Once upon a time, in a land far away, a beautiful, independent,

Self-assured princess happened upon a frog as she sat, contemplating

Ecological issues on the shores of an unpolluted pond in a verdant

Meadow near her castle.

A frog hopped into the princess' lap and said: Elegant Lady, I was

once a handsome prince, until an evil witch cast a spell upon me.

One kiss from you, however, and I will turn back into the dapper,

young Prince that I am and then, my sweet, we can marry and set up

housekeeping in your castle with my mother, where you can satisfy my

needs, prepare and serve my meals, clean my clothes, bear my children,

and forever feel grateful and happy doing so.

That night, as the princess dined sumptuously on lightly sautéed frog

legs seasoned in a white wine and onion cream sauce, she chuckled and

thought to herself:

I may do the meme next week. Loved the fairy tale LOL.
Have you found since blogger automatically saves drafts you can no longer preview before publishing or is this just my stupid computer!!

great post- always great to know more things about you.
Heard about that frog joke but I laugh always everytime I read it again.
Have a good weekend!

laurie said...

great answers, especially DOG!
and the frog tale made me laugh.

chrisb: i'm having the same problems you are. i can't do *anything* except write until i've published it at least once. so in order to preview, save as draft, or even upload pictures, i have to publish a barely-started blog posting. and then hope that nobody's happening to check my blog at that moment, or they'll be bafled.

every time they improve blogger, they break something.

ChrisB said...

laurie I'm so glad to know it's not just me. I'll do as you suggest but knowing my luck someone will read a half edited post!!

my4kids said...

spit or swallow I swallow my tea but spit out my toothpaste! haha I love that answer!
I loved your answers you did them very well even the one that could have been considered sexist!

I've seen that fairy tale before...too funny!

Chrisb~ I was having the same problem on thursday when I wrote my Stupid blogger post! I would write a post though and it wouldn't give the option for comments. I had to copy and redo the post altogether. It seems to be working okay now though.

Very smart princess!!!! I'll think about the tag for next week...I am currently eating flapjacks!!!!

sallywrites said...

Very funny froggy tale!! It reminds me of a book that we have about a reluctant princess. I can't remmber its title, but it is all about a princess who ahs potential suitors jumping through that she can remain single!

sallywrites said...

p.s I'm having problems with blogger too. It's not linking to people properly. I found by accident that if i type in www. instead of http at the beginning it works. If not though, on the automatic links, it is bringing up posts from two or three days ago. Also, my commnets box has gone awry...

I found some marmite at a local speciality shop and I liked it with cream cheese. I took it to Karmyn's for her to taste and left it.

It reminds me of something my mom cooked with when I was a kid called VEJEX.

It took me a while to get GSOH...and then I laughed.

It would DEFINITELY depend on how not-so-good-looking that sense of humor was. A girl has her limits.

Then again, if my eyes were flooded with tears of laughter - it might not matter so much.
