M is for Monday Memes

People have been quite busy with quizzes and such. I've been busy with our clergy conference (vacation) on Mackinac Island. So, I bring you Monday memes and quizzes from around the blogiverse.

You Are Italian Food

Comforting yet overwhelming.
People love you, but sometimes you're just too much.

Well, my favorite cookbook is Jack Bishop's Complete Italian Vegetarian Cookbook.

The "Inside the RevGals Studio" Meme. (Has anyone seen the episode with Robin Williams? He is hysterical on this show...)
1. What is your favorite word?
2. What is your least favorite word?
3. What turns you on, creatively, spiritually or emotionally?
Creatively? Taking a nap. Seriously, I think in my sleep. My Saturday sermon prep always includes a power nap with a notebook next to me on the bed.
4. What turns you off?
Not knowing how to do something.
5. What is your favorite curse word?
Is there a difference between a swear word and a curse word?
6. What sound or noise do you love?
Onions and garlic sizzilin in olive oil
7. What sound or noise do you hate?
Bob Dylan's voice - and anyone imitating it.
8. What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?
Event planner. Hmm... actually, I do a good deal of that already...
9. What profession would you not like to do?
Pilot. The long hours would be very hard, plus I really don't like flying very much, and I like it even less when I'm looking out a window.
10. If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?
Welcome home

You Are Likely a First Born

At your darkest moments, you feel guilty.
At work and school, you do best when you're researching.
When you love someone, you tend to agree with them often.

In friendship, you are considerate and compromising.
Your ideal careers are: business, research, counseling, promotion, and speaking.
You will leave your mark on the world with discoveries, new information, and teaching people to dream.

Huh. Nope - I'm a youngest of three. Oh well.

Yes, but just remember: The traits that first born children generally show are also those that serve well in ordained ministry. I understand that priests are often first born. So it makes sense that you'd answer in such a way as to make the quiz think that. :-)

On the other hand, I don't think I've seen anyone post that quiz and not have to say "no, actually, I'm x." So I don't think it's the most accurate one in the world.

I'm Japanese food. I guess I do like teriyaki, but still...sake: no, sushi: no. I need to reconsider my answers.

Btw, do you still want to join my cookbook club? I can give you some info. Also, we need to talk. What is up with Martha?

Yes, Robin Williams is fabulous in that episode.

I'm with you on the garlic and onions in olive oil. Mmmmm.
