You guys are pretty much the best friends ever :) Those of you not in Bowling Green will probably have heard about (and seen on Facebook) my Doctor-rific birthday party on Saturday. We ate TARDIS cookie cake in the park, and then I was told that I had to find my
birthday present. Sanaa and Amber were in charge of telling me whether I was “hot” or “cold” (which led to far too much singing of a certain Katie Perry song…). Before they would take me to it, though, I had to get through several “challenges,” such as playing the alphabet game in the cemetery and walking
around blindfolded (but they didn't bring a blindfold, so this meant having Amber walk behind me covering my eyes), having to trust Sanaa to tell me the right direction to go. After a long, long, long time, this finally led me back to the parking lot, where Jill and Anna Beth were waiting with the 10th Doctor and his TARDIS to take us all back to the Mesozoic Era (aka Dinosaur World)! The aforementioned 10th Doctor is technically Shelbeiber, but don’t worry Shelby! Shelbeiber can easily come back when school starts! For now, though, David Tennant is sitting in the TARDIS in my room :D By the way, I put the head back on last night, and it was totally freaking Reni out. I have several pictures on my phone of him just staring at it, looking like he might attack. It was really adorable. Not to mention that he’s hardly left the TARDIS since it got here :P Yeah. Cats are totally better.
So now it’s time for Question Tuesday!
Who would play me, Leang, Johnny, Matthew Johns, and Nathaniel?
Augh! Why are you doing this to me again?!?!?!?!
You know what? I have no idea. So I’m going to agree with Sanaa and say it’d be best just to have a casting call.
Why did you neglect us? Did “all of us” exclude the guys?
Yes, Dwain, in this case “all of us” did exclude you, since the question referred to those writing the blog, as opposed to every single friend that I have.
What do you think about Taylor Lautner portraying me? (just kidding you can ignore this question)
If “all of us” excluded the guys, then when you say “challenge for you guys” does that mean the challenge is directed for only me, Leang, Johnny, Matthew Johns, and Nathaniel and any other male who reads the blog?
Dwain, there’s something you should know about the English language. When people say “guys,” it is perfectly and linguistically acceptable for them to mean “people” in general, as opposed to referring directly to only half the population. In this case, for example, I was
referring mostly to females, seeing as they make up the biggest part of the readership, though of course anyone, regardless of sex, is free to respond to said challenge.
Also, I wasn’t aware that Leang, Johnny, Matthew Johns, and Nathaniel read this blog. Do they?
Can you ignore me putting “me” at the beginning of the lists in the previous
Well not now, I can’t. Though I don’t see the significance in it.
Why was Anna Beth the only one to ask questions last week?
Because she’s the most awesome one out of all the dozen or so people who read this blog :)
Which of Snow White’s 7 Dwarves would each of us be?
Sneezy- Anna Beth
Disclaimer: this was kind of tough. Several of the were really easy (like Amy and AB…) but then I got down to, like, Bashful and Grumpy, and my choices were dwindling, so those aren’t
quite so fitting as I felt the others were. Especially Bashful. Sorry Ambah, you’re probably more like Doc or Happy, but the spaces were filling up…
Anna Beth also asked me a bunch of other questions, but seeing as she just asked them today, and I’m just now getting around to posting this, I’ll save those for next week. Sorry…
Also, I have a question for you guys this week. I think a couple of you have heard the song “Abraham’s Daughter” by Arcade Fire? From the Hunger Games album? If you haven’t, or would like to listen to it again, here’s the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5WCoJv192VY. I really like this song, but the lyrics kind of confused me, so I looked it up to see what other people thought about it. So what I’d like you guys to do is give your opinions on the metaphorical correlations: who do you think the song means by the angel?
Abraham? The daughter? Isaac? Explanations would also be appreciated. Then I’ll give you my thoughts next week :)
Ok, so this week’s Question Tuesday winner is…Dwain. I wasn’t going to let him win, since his Questions were all so purposely annoying, but they were relevant and interesting to think about. Plus, he’s teaching me Japanese… So that’s all for today! I’ll talk to you guys in the comments :)
