A quirky question & answer session – Laugh Linkup

A quirky question and answer post*

What is the most random thing you have ever eaten?

As a kid I used to LOVE nibbling on rubbers, and no I’m not talking about root suits, aka condoms, I grew up in New Zealand and we call erasers rubbers.

I also had a taste for paper, yep the stuff you write on, nothing too flashy or thick, just your garden variety A4, lined stuff.

Oh and mum told me I used to eat the dead flies from under the window sills because I thought they were raisins – YUMMO!

Would you rather ride on a puppy dog for 1km or a camel for 100km?

Seriously, a puppy dog? Is that a trick question? Because have you seen the size of me? I would kill a puppy dog if I rode on one and I have enough to feel guilty about in my life.

As for a camel, I do like a bit of a hump.

This is the type of puppy I want, a Golden Retriever!

If you were a colour what would you be?

I’d like to say red because I’m pretty outgoing and slightly angry – but then again I wear a lot of black, not because I’m having Goth crisis but because it hides my muffin top.

You’re in a karaoke bar and you have to sing: what song is it going to be?

My singing voice is crap so I’m probably going to belt out a song that actually doesn’t need singing – like a rap – Eminem’s The Real Slim Shady for example.

I’ll even turn my hat around backwards, drop my pants a bit so you could see my butt crack and throw in a few YO YO MOFOs!


4. You must choose between only having either chocolate or alcohol for the rest of your life. Which will it be?

You all know I’m going to say: “Hi, I’m Emily and I choose you alcohol”.

But I pride myself on being able to overcome any obstacle so I’m going to pick a chocolate liqueur – two birds, one stone – BOOM!

Β What colour are you and why?

And what’s YOUR karaoke song?

*This is the questionnaire I got from Jess @ Essentially Jess when I was asked to join Team IBOT about a year ago.

  1. Definitely alcohol. I’d sing “I will survive” on Karaoke. I ate chocolate covered grasshoppers once. Of course I’d be pink and I’d ride the dog. P.S. I tagged you in my post πŸ™‚

  2. My 7yo son and his schoolmates still refer to their erasers as rubbers, god bless ’em.

    And it’s Crocodile Rock every time for me, unless the karaoke machine has Slim Dusty’s When the Rain Tumbles Down in July (which few do!)

  3. I rode a camel once – I was unbelievably sore after that hump. So I would opt for the doggy position (Sorry but someone had to say it). As for karaoke I would go for “Bootylicious” by Beyonce because truly noone is ready for this jelly. I’d love to be a deep mysterious shade of emerald green but I fear that I am beige.
    Cheers x

  4. I can’t believe anyone would expect us to ride a puppy. I’m twice your size so I’d have flattened the poor bloody thing with a quarter of my weight.

    I’d be black. I’d like to say cos I’m dark and mysterious, but quite frankly it’s more a dark and dismal (and moody) thing!

  5. merilyn says:

    I would be red violet … an oil colour which I love … could eat it!
    and that would be the colour of my skin if I had to sing
    in front of people R.E.M. “that’s me In the corner that’s me in the spotlight!”
    consider this! lol m:)X

  6. We used to call them rubbers too, no shame!
    My colour is red – makes me happy. Good luck too I’m told.
    My karoke songs of choice are usually Creedence – gets the whole bar singing with you πŸ˜‰

  7. Forget everything else, I just want to take that puppy home… and I will love her and pet her, and squeeze her and hug her… knit her a mauve doggy coat and teach her to howl along to “Do Wa Ditty Ditty Dum Ditty Do” πŸ˜‰

  8. Definitely the puppy dog. Those who say otherwise are just politically correct wowsers. Karaoke? It’s got to be Johnny Cash’s “A boy named Sue”. Colour – Natural / Beige / Off White / Bone as I like to go with everything. As for the alcohol – chocolate conundrum I’m a bit like you – RUM BALLS!

  9. I would have to be very drunk indeed to do karaoke, but if I did it would have to be a Carpenters song. Probably Calling Occupants just so I could do that weird alien voice. And I also wear black in a futile attempt to hide all my rolls.

  10. If you carefully calculate the amount of buttcrack to show, people won’t even notice your voice! πŸ™‚

  11. Spiders. Camel. Song? Hmmm… Anything from Frozen because the kids sing them so often they’re all seared permanently into my brain. Alcohol, see last answer. Black – because I am in mourning for my musical taste. x

  12. Hilarious. Now, there’s some questions I’m going to have to think about x

  13. LOL root suits. I hadn’t heard that phrase before. I would have answered the colour and the camel question exactly the same.

    Alcohol and chocolate are sadly both off the food agenda thanks to my dodgy pancreas, if you could find me a new pancreas I think after several years of not being able to indulge at all, I would seriously find it hard to decide so I would possibly go with a chocolate liqueur.

  14. Chocolate OR alcohol? Not both? Aaargh, what a cruel world we live in!

  15. I’m red – fiery.

    My karaoke song is ANYTHING – I go a bit gaga at karaoke, not as in lady gaga, but as in I’ll belt out any tune I’m allowed. Can’t go wrong with a bit of ABBA, but I did win drink vouchers once with a Whitney Houston number – yep, you guessed it – I Will Always Love You.

    No vlog demos unfortunately. I have a very sore throat. Sigh.

  16. I will totally duet you on Real Slim Shady, HELLS YES. Kx
