Fun Questions by ilikelaughs on 27 July 2008 11:39pm
Ask a question to the person below you, it's fun.
Here's how it works, the last person to post will answer a question and ask a question, you then, answer their last question and ask a question of your own.

I'll start..

What is your favorite city?
Re: Fun Questions by mrsthing on 28 July 2008 12:45am
I'd have to say Boston, Massachusetts. I grew up near there; it's a quirky little city with a lot of personality and fun things to do: great bookshops, Italian and Chinese food, the Aquarium, the Museum of Science, the T (subway system), the Public Garden with the bronze statues of Mrs. Mallard and her 8 babies (made famous in "Make Way for Ducklings"--which really happened, btw), and good old Fenway Park, the Red Sox home field.

If you could be anyone else living or dead for a day (but be alive, of course--hee hee!), who would it be and why?
Re: Fun Questions by Spursfan on 28 July 2008 8:44am
Mmmm well let me see - of course I want to go to the Seychelles or perhaps return to the Maldives.

But I think the place I (and the husband) want to visit is the Galapagos Islands. Why? To see the wild life that is found nowhere else in the world, especially the giant tortoise.

Right now a question.

Assuming that your family (including pets) were safe, and you had all your important papers, what would you save in a fire? (I know, an old boring question!!)
Re: Fun Questions by peripatetically on 28 July 2008 12:00pm
I would save everything related to Christmas, because my ornaments have been collected since childhood... some collected from trips abroad, some handmade and some gifts from family and dear friends. Thus it contains a vast and precious collection of memories. Included would be nutcrackers , smokers, pyramids, wood carvings, candelabra, wax figurines, tree ornaments, my nativity scene that was handmade by my dad. and many other decorations I use every year. It is basically an old world collection of nostalgic items where nearly every single ornament has special and specific meaning.

On the way out the door, I'd also grab my dollhouse and it's collections. It is handmade and some items inside are as well. Other items are pretty expensive and all fit into the Queen Anne and/or Williamsburg era.

Oh, and I must have my curio cabinet full of collections from my world travels, some antiques, some not, but precious to me nonetheless----and... that also includes stuff not in the cabinet but hanging on the walls or sitting elsewhere in the house. I have incorporated many decorative and useful pieces into my decor as I started collecting when I was 26. It all sounds busy and cluttered, but it really isn't.

Yep, I'm a child at heart and very sentimental!

********Next question: Who would you like to meet who is dead and why?
Re: Fun Questions by bIG bLOGGER on 28 July 2008 3:44pm
personally I have developed an aversion to meeting dead people,I don't know why. LOL
Re: Fun Questions by Ken Dunn on 28 July 2008 5:02pm
Einstein because I'd like to discuss the anomalies in his theory of relativity!

Would you like to be a politician and why?
Re: Fun Questions by bIG bLOGGER on 28 July 2008 5:06pm
Ken Dunn:No Thanks!I wouldn't mind being a Doctor,but NOT a "Spin-Doctor",thanks.
p.s. I thought Einstein's Theory of Relativity was flawless!!
Re: Fun Questions by geordiegirl on 28 July 2008 6:51pm
bB: where's your question!!

So I shall just have to comment on the Theory of Relativity, about which I know not a lot. I'm sure it IS flawless: I won't ask husband, who knows these things, as he'll only tell me.

So my question is to the next person:

Are you an arts-oriented or science-oriented person? (Arts, myself)
Re: Fun Questions by Spursfan on 28 July 2008 7:04pm
I think the arts (in which I have my degree).

[Pats I should've restricted my question to which one item would you save!! Not to worry ;) ]

Cadbury's Flake or Creme Egg? (just to bring a more intellectual edge to the string!!)
Re: Fun Questions by fairygirl48 on 28 July 2008 8:58pm
Apologies to Karen if she reads this, but I prefer Flake. The filling in a creme egg unless it's orange or caramel creme is a bit too sugary for me.

Which famous science fiction hero would you rather be--Doctor Who or Arthur Dent(main character in The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy)?
