Fun Monday: The Quiz Mastress strikes!

Lisa over at Lisa's Chaos is our lovely hostess for this week's Fun Monday. Her challenge to us is:

What is one thing you would like to ask your readers? Come up with a question to pose to your visitors and throw it out there on Monday. As we’re all visiting each other’s Fun Monday posts we should answer the various questions we come across.OR Show&Tell me about a bird, I’m easily made happy.

Now I would love to chicken out and show and tell about a bird, but sadly, on my list of fears, birds rank #2. This is a tough one because I'm almost certain that the only people that read my blog, outside of the traffic on Monday, are a few friends and family members. Reaching international blogging fame is high on my list of hopes, but it hasn't happened yet.

I will say that this challenge reminds me of a topic that comes up frequently between my mother, sister and myself. As we sit and chat, ok, gossip about others, we always ask, "What do people say about us?" We are not necessarily a catty bunch, but we have come up with nicknames over the years for those who interest us the most. A few of my favorite:

The Breads: Big Bread and Little Bread. They are brothers who grew up eating nothing but white bread and cheese. Even at Thanksgiving. Even when my Uncle took us to McDonalds.

Big Head Bread: My cousin and cousin of Big & Little Bread. I'm positive that her head weighs more than her entire body.

Alice Cooper: Mother of BHB. When people ask who this so and so is, we will say look for Alice Cooper. They always pick right. And then laugh hysterically.

Tire Gut: Mother of Big and Little Bread. I guess she ate all of the normal food in their house and it took its toll on her waste line.

Little Head: some guy that my mom sees at a local pub. She doesn't know him from Adam.

I could go on, but I think you get the point. So for this FM challenge, I am going to cheat a bit and use a slight variation on this theme.

Here are the things that I would like to ask my readers:

1. Does anyone outside of my friends and family actually read this?

2. Who do you perceive me to be? A mean, nasty and bitter woman who swears too much? A total neurotic that needs to be locked up ASAP? Someone who uses entirely too much hand sanitizer?

3. What would you like to know about me that you don't already? Would you like to know what I look like? Do you wonder if my butt really is that big (I do look like one of those rap guys girlfriends)? Does you wad or fold your toilet paper before wiping? How does your husband put up with your crap? Don't blow your wad asking this one. I can tell you the answer: percocet. Lots of percocet. Washed down with vodka.

I know what you are thinking, too many questions. They call me the Quiz Master for a reason. So I guess my point is, ask me anything that you want. Other than asking my true identity. Because if I told you that I'd have to kill you. And that would be unfortunate for me because then I'd have one less reader. And I promise you that I don't have any to spare!

A few quick shout outs.....

Today is Mr. Big Momma's birthday. He is 29 plus 12. And not a gray hair on his head. Lucky bastard.

This is my 100th post! Yeah me. I hope you can see the confetti flying.


Molly said...

1. Yes, other people read my blog. However, many people that I know do not know about my blog.

2. I do not perceive you to be bitter, mean or nasty. I perceive you to be an intelligent person as you spoke about Darwin and genetics in an earlier post. Furthermore, you have streak of sarcastic wit that is evident in your writing.

3. So far I am not curious about your looks. However, since birds rank #2 in your list of fears. What is #1 and how would you look if you had to deal with the #1 fear? (There I made my question about your looks.)

Big Momma said...

I love your question back really are getting into the spirit of this week's challenge.

My #1 fear if flying. Believe me you don't want to know how I look when I'm in the air.

Faye said...

Oh my, at first I was afraid you were my neighbor and what would my name be?! I've known some Breads and Heads, and Tires in the past. I had to check your profile again because was going to make you a southern girl--in the south everyone has to have a nickname.

Your questions--

1. Other peopple read my blog--very few of my friends do which really hurts my feelings--I try to be a big girl about it though!

2. You're wicked funny, but not mean.

3. If you had a full photo, I'd be suspicious that it was "doctored". My friend the Geek Squad helped me put a picture on my blog but I only allowed her to "comb" my hair and used one from the current decade!

I will just wish the lucky non-gray bastard a happy birthday.

And as far as blogs go...why worry about what other people think of your blog? It's just that, a a your thing, and who cares what others will think?

My FM is posted, stop by if you can to answer.

Did you ever watch the movie by Alfred Hitchcock, the birds? Eerie..especially when a huge flock of those black birds land in our yard to feed!!!

Lil Mouse said...

i 2nd hootin anni. your blog should be whatever you want it to be.

Jeanna said...

I'm reading this because you're on the Fun Monday list, but visit me and I'll visit you.
I can't answer the second question, but time will tell.
I want to know if you're from Clintonville, WI and have you ever really folded your toilet paper?

iPost said...

Congrats on the 100th!

I am confused with all of the questions. But, the avatar eyeball scares me! That might be my #1 fear ;0)

Sayre said...

I generally come by for Fun Monday, but rarely at other times. I already spend so much time on the computer that even my regular reads sometimes don't get read for DAYS. However, when I come by for FM, I generally scroll down a post or two to see what's going on. YOur trip to Chicago sounds like a scream - and Geez, I sound an awful lot like you when confronted with "nightlife".

If you seemed mean, I probably wouldn't do much more than glimpse your FM. You don't.

I am always shocked that other people read my blog - that they're interested at all in what I've written. It does give me hope though, that I can write stuff that's interesting enough that perhaps one day I can make a living at it.

Happy Birthday Mr. Big Momma !

1) Is that really your big blue eye on your side bar?

If so, had the bird of paradise just flown up your nose.

Big Momma said...

Sadly, it is my eye. I promise you that it looks much more normal in person. Stay tuned for a new look...

Sandcastle Momma said...

I found your post through Fun Monday but I must say your questions have peaked my curiosity and I will be back to read more.
The fact that you've named people Breads and Heads makes me laugh out loud and I have a feeling that even if you are mean and nasty I will enjoy it thoroughly LOL Today has been crazy but I'll be back to read more.

To answer your question about others reading my blog - not that many but I write to write and it doesn't bother me if everyone sees it or no one at all.

I'll be back!

ChrisB said...

1 people outside your friends and family read this as we are here even if it is only on Mondays (oops it's Tues)

2 It strikes me that you are someone with a good sense of humour

3 my question has been answered...I now know your no 1 fear.

Hope Mr Big Momma had a great birthday and congratulations on 100th post.

1.Doubt it.
2.Neurotic meth addict
3.You really like Canada that much?

hulagirlatheart said...

1. Very few friends know about my blog. Most of my readers I've never met.

2. I don't think you're mean.

3. I'd like for you to use five adjectives to describe what kind of friend you are.

Alison said...

well..other people read my blog besides friends and family...but now most of those people I consider friends also...strange how that happens.

keep your blog the way it should be an extension of you, not what you think other people think it should be!! did that make sense??

Jo Beaufoix said...

Sorry I'm late.

1. Only on a Monday, but I bet you'll get more readers, it's early days yet.

2. Not bitter, but funny and sarky and straight talking. I like that.

3. What is percocet. I'm a Brit so I've not heard of that.

Anonymous said...

Be glad that you don't know about percocet. It is a very strong pain killer that my hubby gets because of his kidney stone problems!!!
