A fellow blogger at thesunshineartist wrote an interesting article where she answered a bunch of questions, some of which were rather questionable by my standards, and I was asked to do the same. It was supposed to be a ‘Friday challenge’, and today is Tuesday, so I guess I’m doing everything correctly.
It’s not my usual kind of content, I know, but I have something else stored up for later.
Either way, to the questions!
Q1) If you were facing the death penalty what would be your last meal choice??
Quattro Formaggi pizza made by real Italians. It’s been my favourite every since I ate it for the first time in my life. And yeah, you might be asking ‘pizza? SERIOUSLY?’ right now, but in my defense I’ll just say pizza is good, and I’ll never eat it again after this, as it is my last meal, so it doesn’t really matter what I eat, as long as it is something tasty and I can feel happy about eating it.
Q2) Have you ever whispered Candyman five times in front of a mirror?
Right, so, it might surprise you, but this is not a thing in Finland (shocking, I know). I have not done it. I guess I’ll practice tonight. I hope someone can explain what that does later.
Q3) Have you ever had your tarot read?
Yes. My mother was into tarot reading at some point and she read it for me. I think she did it incorrectly, because according to the cards I was supposed to be super successful already years ago, and I was supposed to find the love of my life as it was waiting for me ‘just around the corner’, and none of that happened.
Q4) If you were witch or wizard from the Harry Potter books or movies what spell would you use to stop the bad guy(s)?
This question is incorrect. Why would I want to ‘stop the bad guys’ when I can just go on and let Harry do it for me? I’d just take Harry’s broom, run away from the bad guys, and go learn real magic and become the best wizard in the world instead.
Q5) Would you sleep inside a coffin underground for a night?
I’ve actually already done this. Don’t ask. NEXT QUESTION!
Q6) What is your best detective series?
Well, from my memory the ones that pop to mind are Sherlock Holmes, Poirot and The Mentalist. Poirot had some unmatched class to his style, so I’d say he’s still the best.
Q7) Is there a horror movie you simply could NEVER watch because of the advertising hype?
I’m a horror junkie, and I go out my way to watch even the more disgusting films (those are usually pretty interesting by the way!). I’d say I wouldn’t watch Paranormal Activity, despite its hype, but that’s because I don’t see the premise of the film interesting in the first place, not the fact that the hype killed the movie for it. It’s just not good, I think!
Q8) What do you want your last words to be?
‘Tell them I did it!’, now that would be an interesting way to go. I have no idea what that ‘it’ is yet, but I have some time to figure it out.
Q9) Are you afraid of clowns?
I don’t really see clowns as something to be scared of. They wear silly hair and make up. This is what Norwegian death metal bands do too, and I don’t mind them either – even though some of them happen to be rather disgusting. I think that’s its own kind of art.
Q10) Would you agree to take part in a séance?
Hmm… No. Why do that when you can talk with the living instead? Seems much more interesting than dig what’s in the past.
Q11) Would you rather have a pumpkin for a head or knives for hands?
The simple answer here is knives for hands, of course, because with modern technology you could actually fix those hands into normal ones with enough cash, or you could try to become famous being the ‘person with scissor hands’. It would also be pretty reliable tool for self-defense.
On the other hand, pumpkin head seems volatile and about to burst. Someone would like to hit it with a baseball bat eventually. That’s how I see it. Too dangerous.
Q12) If you were a detective investigating a murder what would your first steps be at the scene of a brutal death?
I’d call batman. That’s a pretty reliable way of doing things. Or possibly one of the many modern Sherlocks.
If they’re not available, I’d put on rubber gloves and touch the surface and lick it to catch wind of the situation. Then I’d just follow my nose. I could of course also contact the witnessess, but those are difficult to come by these days.
Q13) Hanging, Injection, guillotine or firing squad what would you prefer?
Guillotine. I’m interested in knowing for how long you’re still aware of your surroundings as your head rolls on the floor. Spinning like that would make your stomach upset, though.
Q14)* Which 3 questions will you be deleting to add your own in?
If you were one of the Detectives from Scooby Doo, who would you be and why?(deleted)
Uh oh, you have witnessed a murder, and you think the killer may have seen you, but you are not sure, what would you do? (deleted)
What’s your favorite Murder Mystery quote? (deleted)
Q15) If you weren’t a human, what would you be instead?
I’d be an evolving computer virus. Yes indeed.
Q16) Do you look guilty?
It depends who you ask. I’d say yes, but only if you found out the cookie jar is empty, and don’t already know who did it. It wasn’t me by the way.
Q17) Would you wear socks inside out at a dinner party?
Yes. Just to push some buttons.
Q18) What’s the most disusting food you’ve eaten?
I have many things to add here. As a Finn, I’ve of course eaten liquorice in abundance, mämmi without adding anything to it, as well as parts of pig that I’d rather not mention.
I also heard that one Vietnamese restaurant I went to in Poland uses pidgeon meat to ‘enhance’ their meals. Well, tastes like chicken is all I can say.
Q19) Would you rather be young enough to go trick or treating again or old enough to behind your porch and scare the crap out of them?
Again something that doesn’t happen in Finland, but(!) I’d definitely scare people just for the heck of it, but I’d try to do it in a funny way and not be too mean about it.
Q20) *The three bloggers you are nominating are?
My nominees are:
At least try to think of the answer for yourself even if you won’t write a blog post about it. I’m sure you’ll have fun with it! 🙂
1 Thank the nominator
2 Answer Q1 – Q19
3 Nominate three bloggers of your choice and notify them.
4 Each selected blogger MUST answer 16 of the asked 19 questions, but also insert 3 new questions to make up the 19 compliment. Every time a new blogger is selected they MUST only answer 16 of the asked 19 questions as well as answer their own 3, and choose 3 new bloggers. Each time a new blogger sees the questionnaire it will be completely different to the next blogger along.
(Hint: delete three of the questions you don’t like or have no answer for and insert your own in its place)
5 Q20 & Q14 Must always remain intact.
I wasn’t nominated in the blog post, but I was nudged towards answering these questions in the comment section. Thank you goes to thesunshineartist I had fun answering these questions (as well as making some of my own!).
