44 of the Most Random Questions

I saw this at another blog and Matt seemed like he had fun doing it so I thought I would give it a try myself, that and I'm just a little bored right now.

1. Do you like blue cheese? If Gorgonzola counts than yes, if it doesn't then no I don't.

2. Have you ever been drunk? If my younger days, more times than I can count. Now that I'm a little more mature and grownup, not really. I rarely have a drink now and when I do I only drink 15-20 of them, not even close to drunk stage for me. Just kidding, at most I will have 2 drinks in a evening anymore.

3. Do you own a gun? No, never have and never will. I think the world would be better off without them and I would like to see them all melted down for flower pots.

4. What flavor of Kool Aid was your favorite? a kid what flavor didn't I like, Kool Aid rocked. Now the few times I buy it for my son it's normally Tropical Punch or Orange.

5. Do you get nervous before doctor appointments? Since I still hate going to the doctor, yes.

6. What do you think of hot dogs? They are OK and I only like them 3 ways. First is with mustard, onions, relish, and sport peppers. Second is with mustard, ketchup, and mayo. Then you put crushed potato chips and mozzarella cheese on top of that. Then you put it on a two sided electric grill to melt the cheese, so gooooood. Third way is cooked on a stick over a campfire.

7. Favorite Christmas movie? Oh gosh another long answer. Christmas in Connecticut, White Christmas, The Ref, Nightmare Before Christmas, the ABC Family Channel movie Snow, The Tangerine Bear: Home in Time for Christmas, The Christmas Toy, How the Grinch Stole Christmas (Cartoon version), The Year Without a Santa Claus, Rudolph's Shiny New Year, Nestor The Long Eared Christmas Donkey, Frosty's Winter Wonderland, Twas' the Night Before Christmas, Rudolph and Frosty's Christmas in July, A Charlie Brown Christmas, He-Man and She-Ra Christmas Special, Jack Frost (Rankin & Bass animated version), Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, Santa Claus is Coming to Town, Frosty the Snowman, Frosty Returns, and The Little Drummer Boy.

16. Name 3 drinks you regularly drink? Hot tea, water, and cranberry juice.

17. Current worry? If my son will feel better in the morning.

18. Current hate right now? Those who belong to the Birther conspiracy, people who need to talk about who they are sleeping with on their cell phones while they are standing in front of me in a line, my headache that seems to be never ending, and eggplant.

35. Worst injury you’ve ever had as a child? We were building a fort in our neighbors back yard and all the other kids went inside leaving me holding a board, about the size of a door, up against a fence. Well when you are 8 and bored, 5 minutes seems like a year. So I let go, turned around, and started walking away. If fell on me and the boards I was walking on had nails sticking up. So I had two nails go into the right side of my face and tear it up a little. I still have a 1.5 inch scar by my ear.

Julie J. said...

I've never heard of sport to enlighten me?

Great answers! Maybe I'll post one this weekend!

This was a treat. Irish Wolfhound = yes! Furry slippers and flannel sheets = heaven on these cold midwest nights (I am in Nebraska). And I am happy you chose the pistachio, bravo!

bookmagic said...

Awesome! I'm going to do this one. No hating on egplant, prepared correctly, it is delicious

Literary Feline said...

I think I'm going to do this one too. Maybe not today (I really should be reading my book right now), but soon. :-) I enjoyed reading your answers, Ryan!

Sheila (bookjourney) said...

I too want to know about sports peppers... I love hot sauce and jalapenos... and really all peppers.

Alyssa Kirk said...

Furry slippers and a purple shirt? There's a confident man. I too love flannel sheets in winter, along with my flannel pajamas. I so love the name Aiden that it is the name of the love interest in my book. When you get the Irish wolfhound puppy, I want to see a picture of him and your son!

Fun post Ryan!

Ryan said...

Kim, I liked your answers and am intrigued by geocaching but your word verification isn't working right.

Julie, Sport peppers are thos little yellow peppers that, I think, are pickled. Sort of like banana peppers but smaller.

Booktumbling, The pistachio ice cream was good!

Deb, There is no right way to prepare eggplant, and for that matter I would have to add okra and avocados to the "hate" list.

Literary, Thanks and let me know when you do this so I can read your answers.

Sheila, The hotter the better.

Alyssa, I try to be as confident as I can.

Ceri said...

I've never had Kool Aid before. I feel as though the British are missing out. ;-)

Hope your son's feeling better now.

Why did I read number 25 as 'Do you like sleeping on Satan's sheets?' I have mental problems. :P

Your childhood injury - Ouch! Ouch! Ouch! Ouch!

Ryan said...

Ceri, you seriously need to get ahold of some. Fruit punch is another good one. He's feeling a little better, thank you so much for asking. If it's the Devil from the new show Eastwick, I'm sure some wouldn't mind that. And yes the injury hurt like heck!

Cecelia said...

Amazing answers! The one that made me snort with laughter:

38. Who is your loudest friend? We are no longer friends because of that loudness.

AWESOME. I'm so stealing this! Great, great post, Ryan.

Cecelia said...

Also, what happened to #41?

Ryan said...

Celia, I just noticed 41 wasn't on there.....LOL. I can't believe that happened.

Alexia561 said...

Fun questions and I loved most of your answers, but please tell me that you're kidding about the hot dogs... *L*

Ryan said...

Alexia, I wish I could tell you that, but I'm dead serious about the hot dogs.

Carol said...

The second choice on the hot dogs actually sounds delicious, minus the mustard.

Great answers. I may have to steal this later this week.

Ryan said...

Carol, It's soooooooooo Good!

Elena said...

"the few I know about are not ones I want to have a crush on me" <-- haha that often happens to me as well!

sarah Pekkanen said...

Great answers! I'm still cringing at that injury you had as a child, though.
Many thanks for leaving a comment on my BBAW post - I'm glad I found your blog!
