Weirdest Things

My awesome daughter wrote this meme and tagged me, so here I go. 

Here are the rules:

1. If you are tagged, answer the questions in the meme in a blog post on your blog.
2. Make sure at the beginning of your post you put a link to the blog of the person who tagged you.
3. Tag at least three people to do the same thing (you can tag more than three people if you would like).
4. Have fun! :D

What do you think the weirdest color is? Teal.

What is the weirdest TV show/movie you have ever seen? Napolean Dynamite. I just don't get it.

What is the weirdest food you have ever tried? Horse. And I only say that because you'd be hard pressed to find a weird food I haven't eaten growing up and when I was in Portugal, someone served me meat and then told me it was horse and, well, that was a first, so it was weird to me.

What is the weirdest drink you have ever tried? I believe it was called The Beverly - the Italian Coca-Cola drink. Sampled it (and about 100 other drinks) when we visited the Coca-Cola company in Atlanta this past spring.

Who is your weirdest friend? I have a lot of crazy friends, but weird? I have a lot of acquaintances that are weird. Oh, I know who! Wait, now I'm not thinking about weird as a good thing, so I'll keep my thoughts to myself on this one.

What is the weirdest thing you have ever seen on the internet? The banal things people post on Facebook. It's an epidemic.

What is the weirdest thing your pet has ever done? Scout is delightfully rambunctious and also sweet and snuggly. We adore her! Weirdest thing she's ever done? Run circles around a foreign jogger on the beach, barking like crazy, while both Mark and I crawled around in the sand at the jogger's feet trying to get a hold of Scout to get her to stop while repeatedly apologizing to the man. Huh. Maybe that's the weirdest thing we've ever done.

What is the weirdest book you have ever read? The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. I am a proud geek, but on that one, I feel like I failed somehow. I just didn't get it. Like at all.

What is the weirdest blog you follow? If by weird, we mean awesome, then my friend bythelbs wins this prize.

I am going to tag Thing 2, my SIL Emily, and anyone else who'd like to do this. Have fun! :D

Nice. I guess I'll have to think of a different drink since The Beverly is taken. Hmm, weird things . . .

Emily Foley said...


Color: Puce. Peuce? How do you even spell it?

Food: Crab. Yuck.

Drink: Margarita mix. NOT good. Burns.

Friend: I honestly can't say. I have no idea.

Internet: Cat pictures by the millions. People looove their cats.

Pet: Climb into his water bowl and stay for 2 days (turns out he was stuck)

Book: Life of Pi

Blog: None. They're all pretty normal.

Hmm, teal IS pretty weird, though I sort of like it. It's sort of shiny.

I wonder what horse would taste like. Was it juicy like steak or more dry?

I think I know who you're thinking of for the weird friend thing. ;)

Fun meme. How often do we stop to think of weird things?

Boquinha said...

Emily, you don't like crab at all?

Thing 1, I don't remember exactly, but I think it was like a dense, gamey meat (and sort of like beef or pork). My memory leans more toward dry than juicy, but my memory also kind of stinks.

I'm curious who you think my weird friend is - I bet you're guessing Cathy, but nope, I'm thinking of someone else. ;)

Vivian, I know, right?
