Getting to Know You

Isn't there some annoying song called "getting to know you, getting to know more about you." Don't worry, I won't sing it. But, I do have a little game that, I want y'all to play. I've got some quick questions that require quick answers that tell us alot about each other. What? You don't want to play? Please, pretty please? I'll go first.

(Diet) Coke or (Diet) Pepsi?

French Fries or Cookies?

Big parties or small gatherings?

Chocolate or Vanilla?

Beach or Mountains?

Thanksgiving or Christmas ?

Like sports or "That's so boring"?

Nickname?

Favorite Color?

Birthday?

See the comment section for my answers. And, I hope to see yours there as well ;)

Kat said...

And yes, I'm supposed to be on vacation and I'm still blogging. But just a little, bitty bit!

Kat said...

Coke Zero

I'm with Kimba on this one. Normally salty over sweet...but I like to do both...salty, sweet, salty, sweet...repeat, repeat, repeat.

small gatherings

chocolate

beach

Christmas

somewhere in the middle - depends on the sport - Hockey is great to see in person - I'd rather watch baseball on tv - but I'd rather read a book than do either :-)

Kat - but no one except my bloggy friends call me that. And when I was younger, rattlesnake. Don't ask.

color...black to wear...pink in general...or maybe purple...or green. Or all of 'em.

You know, if you go to Georgia, you don't ask for "pop" or "soda." You ask for a "coke" and then you specify which kind of soft drink that would be. I was so confused for the longest time- but now I think they have it all right. There is Coke and nothing else.

Jennifer said...

Neither...splenda-sweetened, decaf ice tea with a splash of milk. weird. i know

the ultimate is FF dipped in a choc shake!

small gatherings

chocolate

both: family vac. at beach and camping 2-3 xs/year in mtns, would retire to beach though.

have always LOVED C'mas but I am like ray & linda in liking T'giving more and more each yr b/c it's so less commercialzed and easier to focus just on family and togetherness.

LOVE sports, not all but most, actually LOVE taking my kids to their stuff and watching, #1son wrestled this past winter and that was FUN to watch.

Lemonhead, in college, based on common MISpronunciation of my maiden name, there were many, many people who didn't know my real name.

Piggy said...

Don't really have a preference in any of the first six questions.

My life was all about sports before I got married and had a baby.

My friends have given me more nicknames than I can remember, so I'll just go with family nicknames. My family calls me Lola because that was what I called myself when I was little 'cause I couldn't pronounce Claudia. They also called me meatball 'cause I love steak and other meats.

Blue is my favorite color, but that's not the reason why I'm a Yankees, Giants, and UNC fan. I can't root for the Knicks. Always been a Bulls fan.

Birthday? SSN? Bank Account? Call me paranoid or whatever, but I do have a preference on this one and that is not to post personal information in a public forum.

P.S. Maybe we'll meet one day if I ever visit our mutual friend who lives by you. Maintaining your privacy and anonymity of family and friends. :)

Coke

Come on, I have to choose? I always have to have salty and sweet! If I have to choose...fries.

Um...again, I like both - I'm a real extravert...I think small gatherings a little better

Chocolate

Beach...unless I'm in Colorado Springs, Colorado - the most beautiful place on earth! (At least that I've been)

Christmas

Eh...I like sports, but sometimes it can be boring

Mae

I don't really have one, wierd, huh? Maybe...brown.

Fries or cookies depends on my mood, generally I'm with Kimba and the others that said both...sweet, salty, sweet, salty; BUT my husband makes the, THE best chocolate cookies in this world.

Small gatherings

Chocolate or Vanilla again depends on my mood...

More often than not, beach, but I do love me some mountains

Christmas, the celebration lasts through the whole month of December!

Married to a former captain of his football team, I have to like sports...although I did enjoy watching football even before I met him.

I never really had a nickname, not even Jen (Unless you count Henny Penny--which my dad called me)Sometimes my husband calls me Jenia (I don't know why)and for a short time in high school I had a friend who called me sheniqua (Again, can't say why) mostly just "Hey you!"

Blue . . . red. . .citrus green, sometimes white (Depends where you put it)

Diet Coke or Pepsi, not picky, but I prefer Caf. free

Both french fries and cookies, do you see a pattern here? and thus my problem???

Small gatherings - it is easier to visit with friends this way

Definitely chocolate

Most Definitely the beach - the second I hear those waves and smell that ocean air, I relax. I swear, it is like drugs for me.

Christmas - I don't know...it is just magic somehow.

That's so boring - not a lover of sports here.

Just Jen
