Damned if I Do/Damned if I Don't

Apparently, I am such a ray of sunshine I've been awarded by Cooper this time..  However, there are threats of eternal damnation associated with failing to respond to this award so maybe the sunshine is just a nice way of describing the raging fires of hell.  Either way, far be it from me to disappoint...


Here are the Instructions:
First, if you don’t like to read instructions, your IKEA furniture probably won’t last very long.
Second, if you don’t go to visit Turber  none of this will not make any sense to you but you still risk going to Hell.
  • Include the award’s logo in a post on your blog
  • Answer 10 questions about yourself or risk breaking the chain of sunshine (this includes the threat of Hell, bad luck for seven years, and a life devoid of pizza and mac&cheese).
  • Nominate 10 other bloggers and then leave them to fend for themselves
  • Link your nominees to the post and comment on their blogs, letting them know they have been nominated
  • Share the love and link the person who nominated you
Here are the 10 questions you’ll have to answer or you may go to Hell: 
  1. My favourite color: Tie dye, duh!!!
  2. My favourite animal: Hugh Jackman as Wolverine.
  3. My favourite number: Well, I am prime, square, and rational.  Any numbers that fit that description too?  Ok, fine.  How about the Eye of Horus?
  4. My favourite drink: The blood of my enemies. What?  I'm just trying to get into the theme of Hell here...
  5. Facebook or Twitter: How about TwitFace?
  6. My passion: Listen, if you don't already know the answer to that you haven't been paying attention and YOU deserve to be poked by a pitchfork-wielding demon.
  7. Prefer giving or getting presents: Define "presents."
  8. My favorite pattern:  Certainly not any of the wallpapers featured in THIS post.  Take a look.  I dare you.  Yes, that's really what was on the walls of my house when we moved in.
  9. My favorite day of the week: Any day spent picking nits out of my kid's hair because really, that's just a little slice of heaven.
  10. My favorite flower: Self-rising...wink wink nudge nudge...
10 bloggers who might go to hell if they don’t follow the instructions are:
Naw, I'm just going to tempt fate myself and tag only one...Suldog...because doing so is inviting such a fun form of abuse.

2) Unfortunate that the delectable Hugh had to be dubbed with such a distasteful moniker. . . But you know I've met one of his hairdressers, right?

3) Well 'prime' and 'square' are mutually-exclusive, so 'rational' adds nothing to the discussion ('irrational' might, tho). . .

Anyway, I always have such a hard time choosing a favorite number. . . don't want the others to feel like I don't love them, too, right?

Hmmmmm. . . Pi? e? Euler's Number? Cantor's Aleph-nought? Avogadro's Number? The Universal Gravitaional Constant? How to decide?

OK. . . call it Pi. . . irrational and transcendental. . .

Or 6, 'cuz it's perfect. . .

damn. . .

6) I feel like I'm in trouble here; are we talkin' Hugh? Or chocolate? Oh, wait. . . chocolate-covered Hugh, right?

8) Too bad you burned 'tie-dye' on #1, huh?

10) I you were my wife, I'd say, "I gotcher self-rising right here." But you're not, so I won't. . . ;)

Suldog may count as ten. I'm going to duck now to avoid becoming collateral damage.

Just Me said...

I have never picked nits.

I feel like I have missed out of a slice of life.

lime said...

cooper, the gingham was actually the least repulsive but still repulsive nonetheless

craig, #6...i', waaaaaiting....ok, fine, you got it

uncle skip, you are obviously as wicked as i am. i'll save a seat in hell for ya ;)

just me, don't go rushing out and getting headlice just for the experience.

Suldog said...

As you know, you wicked vixen, I gave up eviscerating people a few months back.

However, seeing as it's YOU...

When you least expect it, you shall be flayed. Have a great day!

lime said...

suldog, i was hoping i could lure you out of retirement. i figured your history with softball retirements was good indication of probably success. i eagerly await the flaying. i am a glutton for punishment.

My favorite day of the week?

Any day I can get my daughter to do her homework without having to hogtie her to the kitchen chair.

Last Tuesday was not good.

Craig said...

I just thought of a few more numbers. . .

Of course, 3, for the theological implications; and 7, because, well, 7 is cool. Or 37. Or 73, which is also the year I graduated from high school.

There's also 2801, which is 37x73. Or 10,001, which is 73x137 (all those factors are prime, btw)

There's a story that's told about GH Hardy, the English mathematician, who was hosting the Indian savant Ramanujan. They were getting into a taxi bearing the number 1729, and Hardy remarked that 1729 was a dull, uninteresting number, to which Ramanujan replied that, on the contrary, it was the smallest number expressible as a sum of perfect cubes in two different ways. . .

(See, 'cuz 1729 = 1728 + 1, which is (12^3) + (1^3); but also 1729 = 1000 + 729, which is (10^3) + (9^3) )

See how much fun numbers can be?

;)

Craig said...

Whoops; 37x73 = 2701

Sorry; I hope I haven't utterly disillusioned you. . .

lime said...

beach bum, i fully appreciate your pain. here's to fewer tuesday-ish days

craig, you're making my brain hurt. i'm going to go have some chocolate and dream of wolverine now.

I had horrifying wallpaper in every room in this house when I moved in, too. Bleck.
