I’m sorry, but I could not help myself.  I stumbled on this survey while surfing around for potential blog fodder, and I laughed myself silly imagining some of the responses my good friends would dream up – clearly this is meant for younger fry.  And no, I DO NOT expect anyone to respond to these 50ish questions for my or anyone else’s benefit (but hey, I’d read your answers if you did!)  I just got a kick out of the questions, and the fact that someone had enough time to dream them up. 

So, have a chuckle, and if you want, pick a few random ones to answer in the comments if the spirit moves you!  If I get enough of a collection of answers, perhaps I’ll post the questions again with some of the highlights!

My random answers appear below, in context.

  1. Holy crap. Who wrote this thing?

  2. #55… we need to find this person and turn them in.
    wtf? #21?!?!?!?
    Funny. Love your answer to #48.

  3. Hopefully whatever was spilled into the keyboard for question 19 wasn’t “a fifth”. What a waste of good booze that would be.

    The shower/bath questions remind me of another question – when you shower, do you start washing with your torso or your arms? Someone once told me that men almost always start with their arms, and women almost always start with their torso. It was true of all the people I asked at the time.

  4. 21. WTF? (Oh, I see Marianne had the same answer)
    55. I don’t hit my dogs for licking.
    56. Do you believe that people who can’t demonstrate basic literacy should be banned from the Internet? Why, yes I do, thank you for asking.
    (I kept waiting for a “Do you like me? check yes or no”)

  5. You guys all know I am just reporting the news here, not making it, right?

  6. I always learn something new when I come here. Today I learned that I’m a freak who washes her arms first in the shower.


  7. Between arms and torso, I wash the arms first. But that’s not the very first thing I wash.


  8. Yup, Nora, we just want you to edit the quiz with our questions. (If we thought it was you, the intervention would already have started. 🙂
    And yeah, I start with my arms.

  9. And I’m another arm starter. Well, really I start at the top with the hair and shampoo then go with the soap to the arms. Yup, tmi. Just where were you surfing to find this survey, Nora? 😀

  10. 2. Are you one of those people who just can’t stand a scab and you have to scratch it off?
    – Only the ones on other people

    16. Do you have rubbing alcohol sitting on your computer desk at all times?
    – Why on earth would you keep rubbing alcohol on your computer desk???

    29. Have you ever stuck a paperclip through one of your ear piercings or is your piercing not that big around?
    – Yes. It was the 80’s, my boyfriend convinced me it was cool. I used the rubbing alcohol on his desk to sterilize it first, of course.

    41. Do you feel sorry for caged wild animals that have been bred and raised in captivity even though they’ve never seen the wild and would it would be like?
    – Every time I step into my cubicle.

  11. Arms here first too…. we’re all a bunch of freaks.
    …Karen, Karen….. your #41..oh and your #2…

  12. What does it say about me that I’m ready to answer a good 95% of those questions?
    #4 (aquariums)Totally! At least the public ones.
    #8 (dog sizes) Big. So many of the small ones have been, effectively, engineered until their natural dogness is gone and they’re a bit nutso. I hate yappy. You want a lap dog? get a cat.
    #16-17 No rubbing alcohol. Yarn, pen or pencil, phone cradle (the phone is often missing tho).
    #24 (leashes) No. I think their parents are being responsible. I just resent that I can’t still use them on my 13 yo.
    #26. (earrings on men) One. One in one is sexy.
    #37. (noise that never fails to offend) whining
