If you had the power to strike one person in your life permanently speechless, who would it be? (Real names aren’t necessary, vague descriptions are fine… and yes, this is being asked in fun and not to be mean)

If you could re-live your childhood over again, what’s one thing from this modern world today you’d want to take back with you?

Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple are the standard colors of the rainbow.

Name something you love (or greatly admire/appreciate) for all six major colors of the rainbow! (Sorry indigo, you’re just blue-purple.  Hot pink?  You’re too flashy!)

If you were to open the world’s most accurate fortune cookie, what would your fortune inside it read?

Santa’s tired of people leaving him out cookies and milk on Christmas Eve night!  If you really wanted to get on Santa’s good side, what would you leave out for him to eat/drink instead? (This question applies whether you celebrate Christmas or not.  It’s just for fun, so imagination?  Welcome!  )

Get a better cookie… Like a white chocolate macadamia nut cookie!

What are some red flags to watch out for in daily life?

What obstacles would you include in the ‘world’s most amazing obstacle course”?

Who is the best most believable movie or book villain in your opinion?  Or the one that stands out for you?  (‘book’ is included because some folks don’t watch movies)

What, in your opinion, is the most beautiful/handsome part of your face? (no dissing yourself please, we’re all beautiful/handsome!)


What are some red flags to watch out for in daily life?

Spending too much time orchestrating an imaginary The World’s Most Amazing Obstacle Course extravaganza…. See next question.


Architectual Digest

What obstacles would you include in the ‘world’s most amazing obstacle course”?

Begin The World’s Most Amazing Obstacle Course at the Great Pyramid in Gaza and take a small trek across the Sahara Desert, hike straight across the continent of Africa to Georgetown, Gambia, on the Gambia River. Swim the Gambia River to Banjul, the capital of Gambia, just of the coast of the Atlantic Ocean.

Once at the Atlantic, you will be hosted in a series of power-gliding events around the Horn of Africa, to reach Capetown, South Africa.

From Capetown, a friendly ocean liner will travel top-side with you as you swim toward Antarctica, through the mingling waters of the Atlantic Ocean and the Indian Oceans.

Arriving at Villa Las Estrellas, a Chilean township in Antarctica, you will take a brief respite.

After several quality days with the penguins, you will leave for a kayaking adventure from Villa Las Estrellas, Antarctica to Melbourne, Australia.

Arriving in Melbourne, Australia, just in time for the Australian Open (renown tennis tournament- if you don’t know) you will enjoy a brief 2-week vacation.

From Melbourne you will begin the last water-leg of The World’s Most Amazing Obstacle Course and scuba-dive to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.

You will end the The World’s Most Amazing Obstacle with a short cycling trek through central Mexica to the ancient Aztec ruins of Teotihuacán near Mexico City.

Oyster Hotel Reviews

Mission accomplished.

Who is the best most believable movie or book villain in your opinion?  Or the one that stands out for you?  (‘Book’ is included because some folks don’t watch movies)

Voldemort (from the Harry Potter series).  Explaining the power of unrequited love leading to the desire of world domination… a common ‘evil’ trait.


What, in your opinion, is the most beautiful/handsome part of your face? (No dissing yourself please, we’re all beautiful/handsome!)

My adorable ears compliment my well-endowed nose.

In your opinion, what should be humanity’s goal?

Are you hesitant to speak your opinions?

In what ways has society changed during your lifetime? What do you think caused these changes?

If you had a friend who spoke to you in the same way that you sometimes speak to yourself, how long would you allow this person to be your friend?


Live Happy Magazine

In your opinion, what should be humanity’s goal?

“Do unto others….” You know the rest.


Kool 98.3

Are you hesitant to speak your opinions?

Opinions are like bellybuttons. You should be very selective with whom you share them.


Glogster

In what ways has society changed during your lifetime? What do you think caused these changes?

Violence and rudeness has become acceptable behaviors with few (if any) consequences. In fact, they are often glorified.


If you had a friend who spoke to you in the same way that you sometimes speak to yourself, how long would you allow this person to be your friend?

Kind, Considerate, Truthful, Honest to a fault. I think you are describing me? I must be my own best friend.

If cartoon physics suddenly replaced real physics, what are some things you would want to try?


How many pillows do you sleep with? 

Six…. And I don’t want to talk about it.


What would be the worst thing you could put in a piñata?

Cupcakes. They never look as tasty once they are hit with a baseball bat. (Not that I would personally know?)


What noise annoys you the most?

Whiny voices


If cartoon physics suddenly replaced real physics, what are some things you would want to try?

I have always wanted to be in a Roadrunner and Wile Coyote Cartoon!

What was the very first popular song you ever remember taking a liking to?  I’m not talking about children’s songs or old traditional songs… but the kind of songs you’d hear on the radio.  📻 ♪♫♪♫

Are you one of those people who get queasy at sight of blood, or could you watch an open heart surgery?

Who or what do you feel is lurking right behind you, just waiting to ambush you and make your life a living hell (or “heck” for those with delicate sensibilities)?

What is the gaudiest thing you have ever worn?

Fess up!  What was something you did as a child that got you into BIG trouble?

Anytime I was NEAR a TRAIN or a TRAINTRACK or the TRESTLE for a TRAIN…. I would sing this song full out!

Somewhere in junior high, this was my new theme song.

Thoracic Key

Bring it one…. I would like a front row seat!

Name something you wouldn’t want to run into in a dark forest or in an abandoned building  (yeah it’s a retread.  But there are new participants to SYW too who probably never answered it)

Do you believe in multiple dimensions or worlds?

Would you ever go to a graveyard at night?

What is the most frightening book you’ve ever read?

If you could have a spooky Halloween pet (black cat, owl, bat, rat, wolf), which would you pick out of the five choices?

A pack of vampires…. That is, if I believed in vampires…


Do you believe in multiple dimensions or worlds?

Are you telling me that FRINGE was not a true story? (FYI: If you have not binged this TV show, but are a SciFi fan, you got to do so this winter!)


Would you ever go to a graveyard at night?

As kids, when visiting one particular friend, we used to play tag in a local graveyard almost every night.


What is the most frightening book you’ve ever read?

If I change the question to movie-book, the easy answer is Cujo.

If you were a ghost, what location do you think you would haunt? Is it the same or different from the location you’d want to haunt?

What do you see in your mind’s eye when you close your eyes?  (I know somebody will answer ‘the inside of my eyelids”, so I took the temptation away by answering that first! 😜   Feel free to use that answer if you like though, or pass. It’s ALL good!)

If a Semi (Big Rig in Americanese) (lorry or trolley over the pond) were about to smash into a crowd, and you could divert the vehicle’s course to hit only one person, would you?  How would you decide who would become the victim?

Erratum:   A “trolley’ over the pond is the same thing as a trolley here.  It’s a trolley CAR.   Ours in the USA run on electricity though.  I have heard of them jumping the tracks and going berserk, but not often.  This is just for clarification in case any over-the-pond ers are reading and thinking “She’s daft and she doesn’t know our language very well at all, does she?” 


If you were a ghost, what location do you think you would haunt? Is it the same or different from the location you’d want to haunt?

If I were able to haunt a place for just a little while, this is (of course) in my wonderfully-creative-fictitious mind, I would want to haunt Collinwood I the original Dark Shadows.

Hopefully there would be time for each individual group to play Rock-Paper-Scissors….

What is the scariest game (board or on-line) you ever may have played?

What’s just ‘over the rainbow” for you?

Do you have to watch something upbeat after watching a suspense or horror movie so you can go to sleep?

Is there intent behind every action?


What is the scariest game (board or on-line) you ever may have played?

Often games on family night can be quite terrifying!


What’s just ‘over the rainbow” for you?

From what I remember from the movie, the correct answer is The City of Oz…. But I have never found it?

What is the greatest struggle you’ve overcome? (This isn’t meant to be invasive, just use general terms if you’d like.  Or if not, feel free to pass on the question.  That’s allowed too).

If heaven is real and you died tomorrow, do you think you would get in?  Why or why not?  (this is purely speculation, no bias if you don’t believe)

What makes you feel like you really need to be alone?
