Note: The third and final episode of the Trilogy of the Ring will be posted on Friday.
I got this fun idea from Lulu. There were twenty items in the original list, but I pared it down to thirteen, partly for the sake of the Thursday Thirteen, and partly because I didn't know how to answer some of the questions. And partly because I must be a bit of an oddball and didn't know it, because some of them were very hard to find pictures for.
And now I'd better explain what I'm talking about. It's a list of questions that you answer "using only pictures found online (only the first page of results.)"
I wasn't sure what "online" meant, but I searched on google images, figuring that was pretty close. However, I noticed that Ornery's wife just posted a very similar list, and her instructions said to use PhotoBucket.
Well, I'll have to admit sometimes I had to go through several pages of images to find anything usable for some of my answers, and some I just gave up on.
But all that aside, here is my Illustrated List of Thirteen Things About Me:
1. Age I'll be on my next birthday:
My how time flies. Therefore, the clock seemed appropriate.
2. A place I'd like to visit:
3. My favorite place:
4. My favorite object:
My Palm Zire 72 pda. It has my calendar, my to-do list, my alarm clock, my concordance, several bible translations, and a bunch of other things that I'd be lost without.
5.My favorite food (surprise, surprise):
6. My favorite animal:
Well, I don't know if I really have a favorite, but we used to have a pet mallard named DuckDuck, and that was fun.
7. My favorite color:
Seriously, I love lots of colors together. You should see the two quilts I made. Hmm, maybe you can, if I post pictures sometime....
8. City in which I was born:
How many of you know that Kansas City, Kansas started out as Wyandotte City? But then the city wanted to bask in the reflected glory of Kansas City, Missouri, and changed its name. See, blogs can be educational.
9. The town in which I live:
10. My nickname/screen name:
11. A bad habit I have:
12. My first job:
13. My dream job:
In case you'd like to use this idea yourself, here are the questions I left out:
The name of a pet
Your middle name
Your last name
The first name of your love
Your current job
A picture you find hilarious
A picture that inspires you
