Quiz Answers

I suppose I'd better explain some of my quiz answers.



1) What am I supposed to be doing right now? ANSWER Writing - If I'm not working, mentally always I feel I'm supposed to be writing, but I just can't concentrate. My timezone threw a lot of people there.

2) What song am I listening to right now? ANSWER The Bangles - Going Down to Liverpool. All answers were possible, as they are all on my PC. I do have a sneaking affection for The Bangles though. I might seem all cool and alternative, but I did love 80's pop (until Stock Aitkin and Waterman ruined it). I adore Curve, and are by far my mosr played band.

3) Who was the first band I saw live? ANSWER Duran Duran. It was the 80's! I was 14! A lot of people said Depeche Mode, which is a reasonable guess as I have loved them for 20 years and they were the second band I ever saw.

4) What is my real name? ANSWER Lisa. I hate it. Why couldn't I have had an interesting first name?

5) What did I last buy on Ebay? ANSWER A Nitemare Before Christmas Pencil Case. Hasn't got here yet. Wot? A writer needs something to put her pens in. I have bought all the other items in the question at some point. Even the 1984 Cup Final programme. The ex wanted it, and I am a Watford girl after all.

6) What's the first thing I eat in the morning? ANSWER Toast. No, not bogies. Who do you think I am?

7) Which of these jobs DIDN'T I want to do when I grew up? ANSWER Oceanographer. I hate boats.

8) What colour is my bedroom? ANSWER Khaki. I was going for a jungle theme. I didn't really work and it lots revolting. I will probably get repainted lilac later. Every other wall I've painted in the flat is some shade of blue.

9) Which is my favourite cat from Top Cat? ANSWER Choo Choo. I love Choo Choo. I er... Used to collect Top Cat stuff, but I could never find any Choo Choo stuff.

10) My favourite Sea Creature? ANSWER Octopus. As much as I go on about squids. My real love is for the octopus. I love sea creatures, more than land ones, I think. Shame about the not liking boats.


calove won with 90 points. Although she had the advantage of having met the wonder that is me, I have no idea how she answered some of these.

stumbelina, thomasina75 and lillianmorgan share second with 40 points.

Heh. These answers were as interesting as your questions.
Lisa. I hate it. Why couldn't I have had an interesting first name?
I think most people feel the same way. Mine is so common that even if someone yells it from a distance, I still don't look up.
I thought Siouxsie Sioux for #3 - I would certainly have been proud of that answer if it were me.

I should have said that I have seen all the bands in the question. I saw Siouxsie, but they were far from my first. I think they were a bit advanced for 14yo me.

Very lucky guesses. Some I knew, but the rest...

2) What song am I listening to right now? ANSWER The Bangles - Going Down to Liverpool.

Fluke. I went for what I thought was the least likely!

6) What's the first thing I eat in the morning? ANSWER Toast. No, not bogies. Who do you think I am?

Lucky guess. You seem like a toast sort of gal.

7) Which of these jobs DIDN'T I want to do when I grew up? ANSWER Oceanographer. I hate boats.

Lucky guess #3

9) Which is my favourite cat from Top Cat? ANSWER Choo Choo. I love Choo Choo. I er... Used to collect Top Cat stuff, but I could never find any Choo Choo stuff.

Ah, this is where the lucky guessing let me down. Hadn't the first idea.

10) My favourite Sea Creature? ANSWER Octopus. As much as I go on about squids. My real love is for the octopus.

Squid was too obvious, and you're nothing if not 'not obvious'.

I suppose the rest must have come up in converstaion online or in RL. Seems my subconcious stores trivia like I never knew.


I told you about the octopus, and possibly said that I eat way too much toast. I live on toast.

There you go then. No surprise I got them. Amazing what little facts we let slip (and even more amazing which ones stick in your mates' memories).

I've got memories on the brain (if you get my drift). I'm struggling with the next chapter of the WIP. Blood Buffy.

Funny, I'm stuck on a Buffy chapter too, but I think my problem has more to do with Giles.

(Screened comment)
I writing the chapter from Giles' POV, and I'm not in his head at all. I need his opinions on Buffy now. I also suspect there should be something regarding my possible C plot, but I don't know enough about it yet to lay any foundations.

I don't envy you writing from Giles' POV. Good luck!

I'm going to prod Buffy a bit longer and then give up for tonight. I don't think it's working. She's beginning to bore me.

Cattle prod? ::looks hopeful::

Oh, good idea!

::goes off to rummage in shed::

I hope that's not just for personal use.

Me and a mate used to run children's parties. Makes the little beggars pay attention like nothing else.

So here's a thing. Maybe people don't nominate you for awards because you can't direct link to any of your fics. Hm? Hm?

Er... Um. What haven't I done? How do I change that? There's a memories page, there's a website, there's FFN and a couple of other archives.

Well, because of your website design, you can't copy the actual fic URL from the address bar. Memories are okay, but you need to split it up so there's a separate category for each multi-part fic. So somebody could copy memories=keywords=whatever the fic is called as a URL, see? You haven't linked to the externally archived fics on your site or in your LJ posts, so how can people know at a glance?

It's fine, it's whatever you want to do, but you're asking someone to be a detective - you're not handing them an easy and obvious direct link. See?

Oh. I hate the way the .tk domain takes over the entire site, which is why I put a link on the front page to break out. Obviously that's a bust. :)

I will sort out the memories one day and next time I'll try to make clearer links. Consider me chastised.

::IS DEEPLY SHAMED::

SO YOU SHOULD BE!

:):):)

Make a category for each multipart fic tonight in your memories. It should take you between four and four and a half minutes. ;)

BE TOLD!

Much better. Honestly, you wouldn't believe the state of people's journals! I've been on a mission today through LJ and websites and it makes me want to demand everyone's passwords and TIDY UP LJ.

Harrumph. ::adjusts pinny:: ::grabs carpet bag and umbrella::

I suppose it's your browing habits. I don't ever go in people's memories, so I tend to neglect my own. I will attempt to be better, o'Queen of Links.

Hey it's faeriecutie! I had to change lj usernames for my own protection. Please remember to friend me back!!!

::huggles::

April

::wink, wink::

Will do (when I get home).
