The 11 Questions Game

Well it seems there is a cute little game circulating around the world of bloggers called the 11 Questions Game.  This reminds me of the Facebook posts that people would do about a year ago, except this is only eleven and not ninety-nine questions.  Honestly I despise being a sheep and following the herd but there comes a time in our lives that in order to grow a blog one must play well with others.

I have been tagged by a new Minion of mine, Gossip_Grl at ~*~Whatever~*~...  So there are rules that are in place for this get-to-know you, ice-breaker, party game.  If you do not follow the rules, one of two things will happen, either a pack of potbellied, pygmy platypuses will be released to hunt you down or a cherub will fly directly into an oncoming airliner, we don't know which will happen, the fate is up to those who get tagged. 

The rules are pretty simple though:  You must post these rules.  Each per­son must post 11 things about them­selves on their blog. Answer the ques­tions the tag­ger set for you in their post and cre­ate 11 new ques­tions for the peo­ple you tag to answer. You have to choose 11 peo­ple to tag and link them on the post. Go to their page and tell them you have linked him or her. No tag backs and you legit­i­mately have to tag 11 people.

People know this is not a Mommy Blog right?

Now I have to tell everyone and their mom 11 things about myself, so here goes:

  1. I am a huge Star Wars geek and I pride myself on that.
  2. I am an Eagle Scout and Vigil Honor member in the Boy Scouts of America.
  3. I have a severe hatred of clowns.
  4. I have worked for the same company since I was a junior in high school.
  5. I have a slight case of O.C.D. or C.D.O. (because that's the right order of the letters).
  6. I despise cotton balls, they squeak.
  7. I feel stupidity should be painful.
  8. I am part of a paranormal investigation team called ParaPatrol.
  9. I believe in Bigfoot and want to go on an excursion sometime to find proof of one.
  10. I want to be a stand up comedian when I grow up.
  11. I write this blog so that I do not harm any innocent people in the wake of destroying the stupid ones.
Here are the questions I have been....blessed with to answer:

  1. What is your favorite dessert?  Well, gosh that's a good question, I would have to say by favorite dessert is a toss up between Ben and Jerry's Chubby Hubby (no puns please) and beer.
  2. What is your favorite animal?  My favorite animal is the Wombat.  It's fun to say and it can be used to describe stupid people.
  3. What is my favorite fear?  What the hell kind of question is that?  Who has a favorite fear????  Gosh, I do love me a good fear of drowning or Man, I could go for a great clown to scare the shit out of me right now.
  4. What is your favorite movie?  I have to lump the Original Trilogy into this one, Episode IV, V and VI are the best, but if I had to choose which one of the three I would choose Episode V...oh, sorry I mean The Empire Strikes Back, for those who know it by the name.
  5. What is your greatest fear?  Fixate much on fears do we?  My greatest fear would have to be loosing my family.
  6. What is your one guilty pleasure?  My one guilty pleasure is nachos.  I am a nacho connoisseur, I LOVE nachos, everywhere I go I try the nachos.  From plain tortilla chips and the soupy yellow nacho cheese to gourmet buffalo chicken nachos. I want nachos.
  7. What was your most embarrassing moment?  I don't embarrass very easily at all, so in all honesty I don't have a most embarrassing moment....sorry.....
  8. What is you dream vacation?  Ahhh, good question.  It would start with a trip to Disney FOR STAR WARS WEEK, then head to Skywalker Ranch and finish up over in England visiting the founder of the Boy Scouts.
  9. What is your favorite quote?  I have two actually, "Proper prior planning prevents piss poor performance" and "Alright look, there's only one Return, OK and it ain't of the King it's of the Jedi."
  10. Truth or Dare:  In the game which do you prefer?  Do I look like Madonna?  I never did like that game, but I guess I would do the Truth part if I had to choose.
  11. Have you ever lit a poop bag on fire on someone's porch?  Guilty as sin, both animal and human.
Here are the eleven people I have tagged, I have passed the torch and you are now the chosen ones:

Because nobody likes Mondays
Blondie McBaffled
Funny Odd Thing, Life....
In Stitches On the Compound
Mod Mom Beyond IndieDom
My Upside Down Life
A Simple Dude in a Complex World
The Mommy Rant
English Speaking Zone
Dating After Disney

And their questions to answer are...drum roll please:

  1. Which movie best describes your life?
  2. What is your favorite comic strip?
  3. Who or what is your favorite Star Wars character?
  4. What song can you listen to over and over and over?
  5. Are your farts loud, silent but deadly or in between?
  6. Who is your favorite stand up comic?
  7. If you were stranded in the desert and your wagon lost a wheel, how many pancakes would it take to cover a dog house?
  8. Are you allergic to anything?
  9. What is your ideal vehicle?
  10. Would you put one of those ridiculous stick figure families on your ideal vehicle?
  11. If we were to look in your browser history what would we find in the top ten?
If I forgot or didn't get a chance to tell you on your blog, hopefully when you read this you won't despise me for tagging you.

I apologize for tagging you...but if I had to do it, I'm not going down alone.


  1. HAHA Thanks for tagging me Kevin. I feel like I know so much more about the "other" me than I already did. First of all, I hate clowns too, they are creepy. Second, yummmm nachos, love them!!!! (You should come to where I work, we have the best nachos ever, 5 kinds, Classic, Buffalo Chicken, BBQ Chicken, BBQ Pulled Pork or Black Bean and Chili. Third, can I please come and investigate dead people with you, I so love that stuff. Fourth, I knew what they were without you naming them. Fifth, I get out of bed at least 20 times a night to make sure I locked the kitchen door. OCD much? Sixth, I am off to bed now (actually off to read the second porn book in the Fifty Shades Trilogy and hope my husband feel like getting lucky after I am done reading)

  2. Alright Kevin, I can do the post and answer the questions, but I don't follow 11 blogs. I don't have 11 people following mine. I will do my best. I think I follow 3 and have peeked at a couple others. Unless you count the blogs that various gyms put out, but I don't think I can tag them as some don't allow comments and others would be like "who the hell are you and why are you tagging me." Anyway, I will do my level best.

  3. By the way, regarding your 11 things about yourself: I too am a Star Wars geek that is also an Eagle Scout and a Vigil Honor of the Boy Scouts of America and regarding you working for the same company I can say that I have been paid almost all of the money I have earned in my life by the same company with a little farming, construction and athletics stuff mixed in. You hate clowns, my wife hates clowns. OCD, I got that, but I temper it with bouts of exploring tangents that sometimes take me on journeys far enough from the things I am OCD about because I am OCD about the journey. . . make sense? Didn't think so. You say cotton balls, I say paper tearing or pencils writing on paper. Paranormal. . . freak. Bigfoot, I have photos of the "Intergalactic Bigfoot Headquarters" in someplace Oregon. Grant's Pass maybe. Comedian. . . I have never wanted to be a comedian. People can laugh at me for free. Blog. . . I write mine for the people who read it. Initially my wife, but now some others. No plans for world domination and the things I discuss on my blog are what keeps me from beheading total strangers.

  4. Great answers, and not sure what I was thinking with the two fear things. Between the A.D.D. and my grand kiddie visiting and look there goes another gummy bear. :)

  5. You're not a Star Wars fan by any chance??

    Congrats on getting tagged and some great answers.

  6. Oh dear lord Kevin! Now I feel like I've got homework. If I get to feeling lazy would you except the customary, "My dog ate it" excuse? Or more in line with your interest, "My house was alive with paranormal activity last night and a spirit must have possessed me giving me a serious case of writers block".

    Feels arm being twisted, bones about to snap from the peer pressure...*sigh*...ok, ok, I'll do it.

  7. Not sure when I will get around to this...I don't generally get the "follows the rules" or "plays well with others" awards.
    But, I do think it is interesting to see what kinds of quirks other people have...
    So, I promise to try and play nice.
