    Somewhere
    to the West there lies a beach running along an ocean that if crossed,
    will bring the traveler to an amazing
    beautiful place. It is in this magical land that the Istari and other races of Middle
    Earth transform into 21st century humans. And here on the Western Beach, we can communicate with our other selves.


    Let's sit back, relax, and take off our plaza masks to
    just be ourselves and get to know each other on another level. So
    come on in and answer the questions posted.

    Ask three questions and present 3 things about yourself, 2 false and 1 true. First one who finds true one asks next questions.



    Be careful with the information you give out as anyone can read this.
    Under 15? No Personal Information.
    Answer questions only.
    Do not respond to what others have posted, unless in the same post as your answers.*All Plaza rules apply.
    Please try to avoid any controversial questions (Example: What's your stance on abortion? etc.)

    So to get this started, I'll ask new questions and then present three things about me to determine who asks next questions.

    1. Would you prefer living in a country with King & Queen or President & First Lady? Little explanation would be good.
    2. Have you had encounters with ghosts or other supernatural things? (have asked this before but lot has happened since..)
    3. What makes a man a real man? Or, what makes a woman a real woman?

    3 things about moi (one true, two false)

    1. I love long walks on the beach in the moonlight.
    2. I have played in same junior soccer team with Zlatan Ibrahimovic
    3. I'm chocolate addict and would eat any chocolate I could find when addicition takes over me.

    1. Would you prefer living in a country with King & Queen or President & First Lady? Little explanation would be good.A president and first lady, because that is what I'm used to. I'd rather have leaders who are voted into position because of their own merits.2. Have you had encounters with ghosts or other supernatural things?If ever I did, I wasn't aware that they were supernatural beings.3. What makes a man a real man? Or, what makes a woman a real woman?Tough question. A real man, for me, would be a gentleman. It's getting harder to find one nowadays, when all the guys I know are more concerned about theirswag. Ugh.
    I'd say#1is true? Also, about Ibrahimovic, I was watching him play for Milan last night (in my timezone). Woooow.

    1. Would you prefer living in a country with King & Queen or President & First Lady? Little explanation would be good. President and First Lady. I think it's better to have your country run by people who are voted into office by their own deeds than simply born into the position.
    2. Have you had encounters with ghosts or other supernatural things? (have asked this before but lot has happened since..)
    Yes, when I became a Christian. I'll just leave it at that to comply with the Plaza rules.
    3. What makes a man a real man? Or, what makes a woman a real woman?
    How many roads must a man walk down before you can call him a man? Okay, since I got that out, I'll answer. I agree with Zairazruari about a man being a true gentleman and likewise a real woman would be true gentlewoman.

    I would say #3 because chocolate is one of the best things ever.

    I'll use this free time to share one encounter that made me think twice..this didn't happen to me but to my goddaughter who is my sisters kid.
    Sis came to visit with gd and she was almost hysterical because of something. She wanted to show something to me since she knew that i'm agnostic and need to see things before believing. So she took out her phone and show me a video she had taken yesterday. My gd was playing in all peace and suddenly there started to fly some 'orbs' or what those are called. I first thought it was dust etc but in the end of that video, one dustball/orb flew straight towards my gd and hitted her and she reacted to that by moving like someone would've pushed her to her shoulder. Then she obviously tried to shake something off and was like wiping something away from her shoulder. Some spooky stuff

    Any ideas what that might've been?

    1. Would you prefer living in a country with King & Queen or President & First Lady? Well it depends -in my country nearly allpoliticians are scoundrels at present, (I am sure King Elessar would have been a better ruler than what we currently have to endure!!) - so we might do better with a king or queen, assuming that they actually had a sense of honour, and put their subjects welfare before their royal selves... which I gather from my perusal of various historical tracts did not always happen in the past!! But it is rather theraputic to be able to vote them out.. and that wouldn't be so easy with a monarch...
    2. Have you had encounters with ghosts or other supernatural things? (have asked this before but lot has happened since..) I personally believe that we carry these shadows in our own psyche (or in our own sense of the world )- so one person may perceive something as supernatural that is not apparent to another..it doesn't mean that it isn't there - its just a different experience...
    3. What makes a man a real man? Or, what makes a woman a real woman? Ha Ha ha- as I too wish to comply with the plaza rules - I will just say that this question made me smile! Lots!!
    What makes a person a truly magnificent and awesome human being?- that is a less gender specific question that is good to consider too.

    Well Daywalker - I have no idea about the i-phone video - but sometimes very young children do seem to live in a world thatus older folks can't quite see. I once had invisible friends that seemed very real to me...

    1. Would you prefer living in a country with King & Queen or President & First Lady? Little explanation would be good. Itdoesn'tmake much difference to me - they all waste our time and money.

    2. Have you had encounters with ghosts or other supernatural things? (have asked this before but lot has happened since..)Well, this is tough to answer. It can really only be explained with long deep conversations. In dreams yes! My dreams, areincredibleexperience's. Some go to a whole new leave, and whether people like to believe it or not, some come true -especially when theyinvolvemy grandmother, blood, orspecific things that are said. I had a demon, pick me up with his voice, it was there in my room. Itstrangelydidn'tscare me, it angered me. Which taught something very important, that Ill never forget.I'veread theories about ancestral consciousness, but for me its anawareness on aspiritualnature.Like trying toexplainfaith - you cant! it comes withexperience.To me there is much more then meets the eye. I could give you lots moreexamples, but for now, you can just judge meflaky. BTW: I dream I'm a wolf a lot. Whichstrangelyenoughis often in the snow. I love her.

    3. What makes a man a real man? Or, what makes a woman a real woman? They are one and the same for men and women. Brave enough to to be real - no ones perfect, but someone real, is cool!

    1. Would you prefer living in a country with King &amp; Queen or President &amp; First Lady? King and Queen because I want to be able to hail the king.
    2. Have you had encounters with ghosts or other supernatural things? Impossible to say! I've had a couple of experiences that would fit the description of being "ghost encounters" but no one really is able to prove if ghosts exist or not.
    3. What makes a man a real man? Or, what makes a woman a real woman? Gender stereotypes.

    1. Would you prefer living in a country with King &amp; Queen or President &amp; First Lady? I wouldn't like to have a king or queen with any real power *g* but an elected government with an essentially powerless monarchy is fine enough.
    2. Have you had encounters with ghosts or other supernatural things? Nothing like that. I don't believe in the supernatural, though of course it's impossible to say for sure whether it exists or not.
    3. What makes a man a real man? Or, what makes a woman a real woman? What Dwim said.

    Thanks Daywalker.

    1. What is your dream job?
    2. Have you ever made an article of clothing (sew, knit, you name it)? If so, what is it? If not, do you wish to?
    3. Do you enjoy museums? What is your favorite museum?

    Three things about me, two false, one true.

    1. I enjoy dancing.
    2. I was once nearly hit by a falling eucalyptus tree.
    3. I have gone through a seven hour surgery.

    1. Would you prefer living in a country with King &amp; Queen or President &amp; First Lady? Little explanation would be good. President and wife simply because people, no matter what status they have in society, should pay for their bills by themselves. Yes, even the president enjoys some amount of 'freeedom' with bills but not in same scale than K&amp;Q does.
    2. Have you had encounters with ghosts or other supernatural things? (have asked this before but lot has happened since..) Read my post above.
    3. What makes a man a real man? Or, what makes a woman a real woman? I had one line in mind when I made this question, something that I agree 100 %. 'A man who doesn't spend time with his family can never be a real man.' That answers pretty well to that.

    1. What is your dream job? The one I don't hate.
    2. Have you ever made an article of clothing (sew, knit, you name it)? If so, what is it? If not, do you wish to? Something when I was 8-9..can't remember what it was.
    3. Do you enjoy museums? What is your favorite museum? I don't but I've always wanted to see Hermitage Museum in St Petersburg Russia


    I'll quess nr 2 would be correct ?

    1. What is your dream job? There's a few things I'd like to do, mostly in health and psychology fields.
    2. Have you ever made an article of clothing (sew, knit, you name it)? If so, what is it? If not, do you wish to? I remember sewing some horrible purple shorts in Year 8 Home Economics, and I've knitted a few things like gloves and scarves recently.
    3. Do you enjoy museums? What is your favorite museum? I do enjoy museums but I have a rather short attention span for them, as with many things *g* if it counts as a museum, the Australian Centre for the Moving Image in Melbourne is great.

    And I'm guessing number 3.

    1. What is your dream job? Being a forensic psychologist, though I'm a long way away from that at the moment.
    2. Have you ever made an article of clothing (sew, knit, you name it)? If so, what is it? If not, do you wish to? Mine was at the exact same time as Raven too! Year 8 Home Economics. Go Australia! I made a pair of boxer shorts, and a place mat that said KFC on it. I haven't made any items of clothing since.
    3. Do you enjoy museums? What is your favorite museum? I do enjoy museums. My favourite is the Sydney Museum, but the Powerhouse Museum was always really fascinating to me as a kid. &lt;edit: and more recently when I went back there and saw a Star Wars exhibition &gt;

    And since it's the only option left, I'll guess number 1.

    1. What is your dream job? Being a world class neurosurgeon! Shooting for the stars here.2. Have you ever made an article of clothing (sew, knit, you name it)? If so, what is it? If not, do you wish to? I've made a pajama set for Home Economics...and cut my old jeans so that I can wear them again as shorts, if that counts.3. Do you enjoy museums? Yep! What is your favorite museum? I enjoyed seeing the Metropolitan Museum of Art and MoMA when I was in NYC. And the SFMOMA! I don't think I have a favorite though.

    1. What is your dream job? I really want to be a teacher someday, but what I truly want is to home school my children if I ever have any.
    2. Have you ever made an article of clothing (sew, knit, you name it)? If so, what is it? If not, do you wish to?
    I've knitted a shrug, a shawl, several scarves, and plan on knitting gloves this year. I plan on learning how to use the sewing machine at some point though.
    3. Do you enjoy museums? What is your favorite museum?
    I cannot remember a time when I did not enjoy visiting a museum. One of my favorites is the Huntington Library and Gardens in California, USA. There are many paintings, several old books including a Gutenberg Bible, and many gardens ranging from Camellia gardens to an Herb garden.

    Daywalker guessed correctly. About ten years ago there was a big wind storm and one of the eucalyptus trees near are street blew down. I had walked by it less than a minute before it fell.

    Raven: very close. I was being tricky with that one as I have had a long surgery, but it was over eight hours long.

    1. What is your dream job? High school English teacher. I'll be living the dream come August!
    2. Have you ever made an article of clothing (sew, knit, you name it)? If so, what is it? If not, do you wish to?
    Nope. I've altered some stuff though, but that was a long time ago. I just don't have the time, patience, or skills to make anything from scratch.
    3. Do you enjoy museums? What is your favorite museum?

    I like museums in small doses, probably because they make me very tired. The Vatican's got an incredible collection and the British Museum is second to none because it (a) is free and (b) has the Rosetta Stone. I generally like places with wildlife a whole lot better than museums, though! (The aquarium in my city is incredible.)

    1. What is your dream job? being retired.2. Have you ever made an article of clothing (sew, knit, you name it)? If so, what is it? If not, do you wish to? made a pair of pajama bottoms. They turned out okay, but I need to better fit my body to them *g*3. Do you enjoy museums? What is your favorite museum? I do, but only when by myself... everyone else wants to move so much faster! I prefer art museums rather than collections. And I love aquariums as well.

    1. What is your dream job? I shall resist the urge to be crude (for once), and say...architect
    2. Have you ever made an article of clothing (sew, knit, you name it)? If so, what is it? If not, do you wish to?
    No!
    3. Do you enjoy museums? What is your favorite museum?

    I do. The National Museum of Scotland, in Edinburgh, is terrific, as are the Imperial War Museum, the Natural History Museum and the V&amp;A, all in London. Plus anything art-related is a must. I went to the Louvre once, and have fond memories of a Dali exhibition in Venice, Italy.


    New questions!

    1. If you had to pick one, would you prefer to love in a Stone Age world or a Post-Apocalyptic World?
    2. What is your favourite book-related story?
    3. Which could you toss furthest - a chicken, a palantir, or a dwarf?

    1. If you had to pick one, would you prefer to love in a Stone Age world or a Post-Apocalyptic World? Oh goodness--I'm not sure. The Stone Age would certainly be less depressing . . .
    2. What is your favourite book-related story? Like, a story involving books?
    Hmm. I would say any of the times my students pick up a book and say, "I can read this! I'm a reader!" (They are only 5 and 6, you know. )
    3. Which could you toss furthest - a chicken, a palantir, or a dwarf?
    A palantir.

    1. If you had to pick one, would you prefer to love in a Stone Age world or a Post-Apocalyptic World? Do you mean "live" or "love?"
    I feel like I'd rather live in a post-apocalyptic world since I'd at least kinda know where I am/what everything is whereas the stone age would be harder for me because everything would be new to me.
    2. What is your favourite book-related story? Like, a story involving books?
    Hmmm, not sure. I know on my family's car trip back from Washington, my sister was reading the 6th Harry Potter book after I had finished it, and when she got to the part where Dumbledore died, she punched me in the arm and yelled "WHAT?!?!" about 10 times and then didn't pick up the book until after the car trip as she couldn't read any further out of anger. XD
    3. Which could you toss furthest - a chicken, a palantir, or a dwarf?
    If I could train the chicken, then I could throw the chicken farthest since it could flap it's wings and float a bit farther than where I could throw it.

    Who wants the former without the latter?

    1. If you had to pick one, would you prefer to love in a Stone Age world or a Post-Apocalyptic World? Well, both would be quite similar in a few ways. Of course, in a Post-Apocalyptic world you can help others more so than in the Stone Age. Naturally, one would find both worlds extremely difficult to live in, but I think there might be a greater hope in the Post-Apocalyptic world.
    2. What is your favourite book-related story?
    I'm not exactly certain as I have so many of them. One of the saddest though is when my friend turned up for our Shakespeare class devastated. We had just read Romeo and Juliet and he had had absolutely no idea that they died in the end, while everyone else had known that fact. One other story is that my three year old nephew loves books and he really likes someone to read a book to him multiple times until he can read it himself (till he memorizes the book), and it's extremely adorable.
    3. Which could you toss furthest - a chicken, a palantir, or a dwarf?
    First off, are you allow to turn the palantir into a bowling ball?

    Well two sets of rousing questions for me to ditty out my witty replies...

    1. What is your dream job? Me, Game designer or programmer!

    2. Have you ever made an article of clothing (sew, knit, you name it)? If so, what is it? If not, do you wish to? Yes I have made a pillow for Home Economics class in high school. I think I still have it too and may post a pic of it to show that even guys can make things!

    3. Do you enjoy museums? What is your favorite museum? Yes I do enjoy museums but I've yet to been to one....

    ~~~~~~~~~~

    1. If you had to pick one, would you prefer to love in a Stone Age world or a Post-Apocalyptic World? For me probably post-apocalyptic since you'll be able to use most early-to mid 20th century tech to survive.

    2. What is your favourite book-related story? Like, a story involving books?
    hmm that's a tough one since I've got many book series that I enjoy and relate to in RL.

    3. Which could you toss furthest - a chicken, a palantir, or a dwarf?hat I'd say a chicken since it be the lightest.. A crystal ball does weigh much as well as one heavy-set dwarf!

    1. What is your dream job? Succesful blogger sounds cool!
    2. Have you ever made an article of clothing (sew, knit, you name it)? If so, what is it? If not, do you wish to?
    I am terrible at making things with my hands: so the only thing I have sown would be a project I had at school to make an appron. Did not look that fabulous...
    3. Do you enjoy museums? What is your favorite museum?
    Yes I do, and it's between four different ones. Natural History Museum &amp; V&amp;A Museum in London. Musee D'orsay in Paris &amp; Norsk Folkemuseum in Oslo.

    1. If you had to pick one, would you prefer to live in a Stone Age world or a Post-Apocalyptic World? While I think it might be easier to live in a post-apocalyptic world, I'll say Stone Age because it would be amazing to see the world before cities and such.
    2. What is your favourite book-related story? Can't think of one, but I like Sov's
    3. Which could you toss furthest - a chicken, a palantir, or a dwarf? A chicken because they're not very heavy and can sort of fly.

    1. If you had to pick one, would you prefer to love in a Stone Age world or a Post-Apocalyptic World? Both sound pretty suitable since in those times it would be up to yourself how to survive etc.
    2. What is your favourite book-related story?
    3. Which could you toss furthest - a chicken, a palantir, or a dwarf? A chicken with balrogs wings attached to it.

    1. If you had to pick one, would you prefer to love in a Stone Age world or a Post-Apocalyptic World? Post-apocalyptic, because I would like exploring the remnants of what used to be.
    2. What is your favourite book-related story? My brother used to carve out square holes in the middle of hardcover books (like carve the pages and leave the covers in tact) to hide things in. I thought that was pretty crafty.
    3. Which could you toss furthest - a chicken, a palantir, or a dwarf? A palantir. If Grima can do it, so can I.

    Because I seemed to have missed a set of questions on accident. XD

    1. What is your dream job?
    One where I don't have to do anything and I get paid very well for it?
    2. Have you ever made an article of clothing (sew, knit, you name it)? If so, what is it? If not, do you wish to?
    No, I'm not all that talented at those sorts of things. To quote Heywood Broun, which I think fits well here, "Men build bridges and throw railroads across deserts, and yet they contend successfully that the job of sewing on a button is beyond them."
    3. Do you enjoy museums? What is your favorite museum?
    Yes I love museums. I personally love Natural History museums the best.

    I'm bored so please excuse me for just answering everything so far.1. Would you prefer living in a country with King &amp; Queen or President &amp; First Lady? Little explanation would be good. I prefer having both- a monarchy and a government.2. Have you had encounters with ghosts or other supernatural things? (have asked this before but lot has happened since..) Don't really believe in that sort of thing, so I'm afraid I haven't.
    3. What makes a man a real man? Or, what makes a woman a real woman? Just being true to themselves I guess (or some equally over-sentimental similar statement).


    1. What is your dream job? One where I can travel lots, see the world, meet new people etc.
    2. Have you ever made an article of clothing (sew, knit, you name it)? If so, what is it? If not, do you wish to? Well from the age of 11 to 14 I had to have textile lessons at school, and in year 7 we all had to make night clothing. I made a pink nightdress, that was about 4 sizes too small for me, had half a hem, and a massiveironing burn on it. Needless to say I gave up those lessons asap.
    3. Do you enjoy museums? What is your favorite museum? I'm a historian- so of course .1. If you had to pick one, would you prefer to love in a Stone Age world or a Post-Apocalyptic World? Stone Age for similar reasons as have already been mentioned- I've always wondered what the planet would have been like to live on pre-civilisation. Obviously highly doubt I'd enjoy it much, but then Post-Apolcalyptic hardly sounds more appealing.
    2. What is your favourite book-related story?NotsureI reallyhave a favourite, but aweek before ourEnglish exam on the book The Rape of the Lock (by Alexander Pope for those who don't know), our teacher asked us why we thought there were so many religious connotations in the piece, and a girl in our class put her hand up and asked a bit confused, but completely seriously:'wasn't it because it was written by the Pope?'. My teacher was completely speechless for about 30 seconds.
    3. Which could you toss furthest - a chicken, a palantir, or a dwarf? A palantir because I wouldn't be so worried about hurting its feelings.

    It seems that this thread has been forgotten again so here's the set of next three new questions:

    1. What's one sentence (saying, clichť etc) that annoys the piip out of you?
    2. When people use quotes ( no matter are those from movies, books or from great authors etc) what do you think about them? Does that make their sayings more wiser or poorer since they have nothing original to say?
    3.
    In what situation it is okay to use quotes? (not meaning plaza lore-forums now ;)

    Wow, I've missed a few. Please excuse me while I catch up:

    1. Would you prefer living in a country with King &amp; Queen or President &amp; First Lady? Little explanation would be good. I would prefer a government, but if living in a country with a king and queen means I get to live in England, I'd have to go with that. XD2. Have you had encounters with ghosts or other supernatural things? (have asked this before but lot has happened since..) I did a ghost walk when I was in York a few years back, but otherwise, no.
    3. What makes a man a real man? Or, what makes a woman a real woman? Umm, not sure. But if you want an example of a real man, you need to look no further than me.

    1. What's one sentence (saying, clichť etc) that annoys the piip out of you? "You're an engineer. Problem solve!" My mom tells me that every time I can't figure something out. I have to constantly remind her that just because I'm an engineer doesn't mean I can do everything. My field of engineering is pretty specific. XD
    2.
    When people use quotes ( no matter are those from movies, books or from
    great authors etc) what do you think about them? Does that make their
    sayings more wiser or poorer since they have nothing original to say?
    Depends on what they quote and in what context. I personally think quoting Shakespeare to sound smart or try to attract a girl is pretty silly.
    3. In what situation it is okay to use quotes? (not meaning plaza lore-forums now ;)When using the quote really gets your point across, such as when you just can't say it any better than that. Or if you are trying to prove your point with a source as evidence, of course.

    1. What's one sentence (saying, clichť etc) that annoys the piip out of you? There isn't so much a phrase or saying that annoys me, but when people misuse/mispronounce/misspell them. Like saying "that's a mute point."
    2.
    When people use quotes ( no matter are those from movies, books or from
    great authors etc) what do you think about them? Does that make their
    sayings more wiser or poorer since they have nothing original to say?
    I mean, if I'm reading a paper I would always like to know that the author is well-read and gets their information from reputable sources. It's more what they do with the quotes that makes them sound wiser or poorer.
    3. In what situation it is okay to use quotes? (not meaning plaza lore-forums now ;) Uhh, a couple that come to mind right away are when writing a paper or making an argument that requires lots of backing evidence. Or even if it's appropriate in everyday conversation, particularly if the quote is something funny.

    1. What's one sentence (saying, clichť etc)
    that annoys the piip out of you?
    "It's better out than in" (when it clearly isn't...)and " pardon my French" (when the offending word clearly isn't French!)
    2. When people use quotes ( no
    matter are those from movies, books or from great authors etc) what do
    you think about them? Does that make their sayings more wiser or poorer
    since they have nothing original to say?
    I think that quotes are a way of linking with our cultural collective wisdom - and often the quotes are so good that they are worth remembering - there may not really be that much that is truly original left to say after a few thousand years of human history!
    3.
    In what situation
    it is okay to use quotes? (not meaning plaza lore-forums now ;) I
    f you can remember it properly and it is a good quote then I think it is fine to use it anywhere.

    1. What's one sentence (saying, clichť etc) that annoys the piip out of you? I can't think of anything in all honesty! It takes quite a lot to annoy me. I am fully versed in a range of other reactions and feelings, however.
    2. When people use quotes ( no matter are those from movies, books or from great authors etc) what do you think about them? Does that make their sayings more wiser or poorer since they have nothing original to say?I totally and completelyseparate this into two categories. (1) Formal academic paper or conference-style presentation: The lack of quotes would suggest a corresponding lack of background research, shaky level of awareness, and uncollegial attitude towards experts in the fields relevant to the topic.(2) Any other conversation: Taking the time to look up quotes takes up more time than is necessary and most people don't just walk about with quotes on the tip of their tongue and the forefront of their mind ready to go (they may have parts of quotes but this is about all I would expect). Even in informal academic conversations, quotes rarely are specifically and painstakingly detailed because the people engaged in the conversation can be reminded of the relevant concept with a simple reference or keyword and know how to find it themselves (and don't need you to go ahead and spell it out for them). The one exception could be in some Conservative Christian circles when discussing scripture. In that case there are lots of hours that go into purposefully and intentionally memorizing particular passages and not being able to quote chapter and verse will lead to jokes like "Where did you find that - in 'First Opinions'?" - a good answer to this is 'Second &lt;insert your name&gt; 5' if you just realized you were maybe/possibly wrong.
    3. In what situation it is okay to use quotes? (not meaning plaza lore-forums now ;)I think it is totally and completely fine for people to use quotes. I don't feel it implies a lack of creativity and original thinking in and of itself. A lack of original thinking does imply a lack of original thinking, however.

    1. What's one sentence (saying, clichť etc) that annoys the piip out of you? In general, the over-generalized ones about love and relationships. Like, "Be happy she gets jealous because it means she still cares about you." or some other alskdflkd thing like that.2. When people use quotes what do you think about them? I don't really notice unless the quote was excellent. Does that make their sayings more wiser or poorer since they have nothing original to say? Not really. It depends on why they are saying that quote anyway.3. In what situation it is okay to use quotes? When you're writing your research paper and you have to cite proof or whatever. When you like what the quote says or find it quite clever and you want to share. Or whenever you want really. I'm not going to dictate.

    1. What's one sentence (saying, clichť etc) that annoys the piip out of you? None really bother me all that much. I suppose indisagreements with people one of my friends tends to over-use the sentence starter 'to be fair' and follows it with a statement which is not (in my opinion) particularly fair- that can sometimes bug me. I guess following on from that things like 'with all due respect...' or 'no offense, but...' (which I rarely hear anyone say anyway) would have the same effect, since I find they'reusually followed by statements which, on the contrary, either do lack respect, or do cause relative offense. 2. When people use quotes ( no matter are those from movies, books or from great authors etc) what do you think about them? Does that make their sayings more wiser or poorer since they have nothing original to say? Completely depends on the situation.
    3. In what situation it is okay to use quotes? (not meaning plaza lore-forums now ;) Too many situtations to list. I really don't have a problem with people quoting stuff. Even better if they're quotingme.

    1. What's one sentence (saying, clichť etc) that annoys the piip out of you? People saying "I could care less" when they mean "I couldn't care less". I can't believe the former has even become acceptable for that. It doesn't make sense.
    2. When people use quotes ( no matter are those from movies, books or from great authors etc) what do you think about them? Does that make their sayings more wiser or poorer since they have nothing original to say? If they use the quote in the right instance it doesn't make what they are saying any poorer. It shows they have put thought to the quote and understand what it means to a given situation.
    3. In what situation it is okay to use quotes? (not meaning plaza lore-forums now ;) First thing that comes to mind is a paper for academic purposes. But really they're acceptable in lots of situations, obviously.

    <DIV =WebWizRTE marginwidth="1" marginheight="1" topmargin="1" leftmargin="1">
    <DIV marginwidth="1" marginheight="1" topmargin="1" leftmargin="1" ="WebWizRTE">1. What's one sentence (saying, clichť etc) that annoys the piip out of you? We keep to radio silence. I think societies on all levels have to open and transparant what happens, not hide it for weeks, till annoyance. Democratic as possible. (Holland is off to the elections by the way).
    2. When people use quotes ( no matter are those from movies, books or from great authors etc) what do you think about them? Does that make their sayings more wiser or poorer since they have nothing original to say? I don't have a problem with quotes. It is a way that you then give your own opinion about it, what you think. You do agree or don't agree, or you are in the middle. I think it is quite interesting. It can lead to new thoughts and discoveries.
    3. In what situation it is okay to use quotes? (not meaning plaza lore-forums now ;) In a situation where debate is held and that can happen in many forms.

    1. What's one sentence (saying, clichť etc) that annoys the piip out of you? Like Nia and Dwim, I get more annoyed at things that clearly make no sense than anything else *g* and anything business-speaky irritates me as well.
    2. When people use quotes (no matter are those from movies, books or from great authors etc.) what do you think about them? Does that make their sayings more wiser or poorer since they have nothing original to say? As someone who frequently quotes TV shows, of course I'm going to say it doesn't mean they aren't capable of original thought besides, I don't think anyone could shoehorn so many quotes into their speech that they wouldn't have at least something original in there some of the time.
    3. In what situation it is okay to use quotes? Whenever you want to!

    1. What's one sentence (saying, clichť etc.) that annoys the piip out of you? I canít actually think of one right now. Perhaps when people continually quote a religious book.
    2. When people use quotes (no matter are those from movies, books or from great authors etc.) what do you think about them? Does that make their sayings wiser or poorer since they have nothing original to say? I LOVE quotes. Itís someone saying what you want to express in a much more eloquent way than you could. They cheer me up ^^
    3. In what situation it is okay to use quotes? (Not meaning plaza lore-forums now ;) ALL situations in my opinion

    Idesinholde will ask next questions when she gets her blonde hair to this thread. In the meantime I'll ask one question that can be then added to Ides questions :

    1. Do you celebrate today and if you do, how?

    1. Do you celebrate today and if you do, how? I'll be celebrating on the 7th instead (when I get the day off work) by sleeping in and generally doing very little.
    2. If you had a day off tomorrow; what would you spend it on? Depends on what the weather was like! If it was sunny I'd go for a wander around town and have lunch in the park. If it was rainy I'd stay in and play video games or something *g*
    3. What is your latest purchase (over 10 euro/dollars etc)? Furniture and stuff for my new house.
    4. What was your most miserable vacation and why? I've never had a really miserable vacation but when I went to Cyprus it was way too hot and humid to do anything much except sit in the airconditioned flat or go swimming, which wasn't great.

    1. Do you celebrate today and if you do, how? No--no May Day celebrations in my part of the US, anyway.
    2. If you had a day off tomorrow; what would you spend it on? Sleep in, go running, eat delicious foods that I don't have time for during my hectic school days, visit the hot tub in my building and read Tolkien, and of course stalk the Plaza.
    3. What is your latest purchase (over 10 euro/dollars etc)? Some Tolkien books to replace old copies of mine that either got lost or fell apart.
    4. What was your most miserable vacation and why? Ugh, when I was 12 or 13 my family went on a trip to a nearby state. There were a variety of hotel options, and my parents thought it would be fun for us to stay at a train-turned-motel (i.e. each boxcar was sort of like an RV/trailer inside). However, it turned out that our boxcar was mildewy and the doors were so warped they wouldn't even shut, so we just went home. At the time it was pretty terrible; now it's just hilarious to think about. But then there was that time I went to Budapest . . . that's a whole different story.

    1. Do you celebrate today and if you do, how? Nope, never celebrated May Day.
    2. If you had a day off tomorrow; what would you spend it on? Well, I'm a student, but if I didn't have to do school tomorrow, I'd probably spend the majority of the day reading or writing stories.
    3. What is your latest purchase (over 10 euro/dollars etc) ) A t-shirt the says 'Moriarty is Real' for my friend's birthday.
    4. What was your most miserable vacation and why? I haven't had a miserable vacation exactly, but I don't like tent camping and last year it was over my birthday, which made it even less fun.

    1. Do you celebrate today and if you do, how? I
    have
    attended May Day Marches and some May Day Dinners in the past,
    celebrating the
    international workers movement. I really enjoyed the ďguildí flavour present
    with the various unionís banners decorating the hall, the singing
    of
    traditional songs and the remembrance of significant milestones. Ė I
    have never
    danced around a maypole however!
    2. If you had a day
    off tomorrow; what would you spend it on? Duty (like cleaning up after
    my
    family) or pleasure? Hmm Ė I think I am coming down with a sniffle now
    you
    mention it!!



    3. What is your
    latest purchase (over 10 euro/dollars etc)
    A whole lot of cold weather hiking gear for my teenage son! Hope
    he
    appreciates it!4. What was your most
    miserable vacation and why? A week in a grimy industrial town when it
    rained
    the whole time, we shared a tiny cramped
    house that stank of cigarette smoke with
    an incontinent cat and fought constantly about everything.

    1. Do you celebrate today and if you do, how? 1st of May is the bd of my little sister so that's all..nothing major besides that.

    3. What is your latest purchase (over 10 euro/dollars etc) ) present to my goddaughter..hello kitty stuff and it was well over 10 Ä..
    4. What was your most miserable vacation and why? Don't do vacations so can't really say..

    1. Do you celebrate today and if you do, how? Now that I know that you're talking about May Day, no I don't celebrate it. I didn't actually know it existed until now.
    2. If you had a day off tomorrow; what would you spend it on? I've got a lot of laundry to do. And some things need cleaning up and sorting out. So it would probably be a busy day anyway. XP
    3. What is your latest purchase (over 10 euro/dollars etc) Apart from groceries, it would be a new chest of drawers.
    4. What was your most miserable vacation and why? The one when I was 11 when my grandad died from a heart attack.

    1. Do you celebrate today and if you do, how? We don't really celebrate May Day- unless getting a day off counts in which case yeah we do.
    2. If you had a day off tomorrow; what would you spend it on? Sorting out all my washing, then probably have a wander around our shiny new campus!
    3. What is your latest purchase (over 10 euro/dollars etc) )? Train ticket to Exeter from Reading.
    4. What was your most miserable vacation and why?
    Well 5 months after my back operation last yearthe rest of my family went skiing, and I went with them to France, but Iwasn't actuallyallowed to ski. That was pretty difficult not to find incredibly frustrating! It wasn't miserable though- I did have a good time nonetheless.

    more queries to confuse us all then to compel us give witty responses!

    1. Do you celebrate today and if you do, how? Not really but Cinco de Mayo is coming up as of tomorrow... Party time yeah!

    2. If you had a day off tomorrow; what would you spend it on? Me i'd enjoy going out with my cuz and have fun downtown!

    3. What is your latest purchase (over 10 euro/dollars etc) Well that would be two Star Wars books; Darth Plagueis and the Fate of the Jedi series Apocalypse.

    4. What was your most miserable vacation and why? Hmm I can't think of any that have been bad... Since vacation can be done within your hometown or neighboring tourist attraction....

    As the new brief is to "ask three questions and
    present 3 things about yourself, 2 false and 1 true".
    Here is my list! (I hope these aren't too personal..)

    1. Who do you love most in the world?
    2. Who loves you the most ?
    3. Would you sacrifice your life for the one you love most?

    The 3 clues about myself (only one of which is true) are that:
    1. I love my dog more that anyone else in the world
    2. My dog loves me the best in the world
    3. I would give up my life for my dog.

    1. Who do you love most in the world? My lovely husband. Most of the time
    2. Who loves you the most? Same as above!
    3. Would you sacrifice your life for the one you love most? I guess it's hard to say until you're in that situation but I like to think I would.

    I'm going to guess option 2.

    1. Who do you love most in the world? My fiance.
    2. Who loves you the most? Either my fiance or my parents.
    3. Would you sacrifice your life for the one you love most? I ditto what Raven said--context is important but I would overall say yes.

    I agree with Raven on the two lies and a truth bit, as well.

    1. Who do you love most in the world? My family
    2. Who loves you the most ? Dunno..I hope answer is my sons
    3. Would you sacrifice your life for the one you love most? Without hesitation. I would literally find a way to hell and back if that would be needed.

    just to fill out those choices..nr 1

    Thanks for your excellent answers and guesses...Raven has probably chosen the correct answer (although there are times when I am feeling particularly grumpy and ill used that I might believe that the first clue was true)! So until Raven takes up the next lot of questions I will try my hand at answering my own questions.

    1. Who do
    you love most in the world? (apart from the obvious answer of family...how about JS Bach)
    2. Who loves you the most ? My Dog
    3. Would you
    sacrifice your life for the one you love most? I like to think so although that hasn't been called for yet...- and I really like Benizakura's way of expressing his commitment

    1. Who do you love most in the world? My parents, two sisters, and a few other people .
    2. Who loves you the most? I'd like to think my parents!
    3. Would you sacrifice your life for the one you love most? Same with what's already been said above. I'd hope I would, but until you're int he situatioan itself it's hard to say for certain.

    1. What are the best and worst presents you've been given?
    2. Have you ever grown any kinds of fruit or vegetable yourself before?
    3. What's a good quote from the last film you saw?

    Three clues about myself:
    1. I have poked a platypus.
    2. I have cuddled a koala.
    3. I have patted an echidna.

    I say number 3 is true!

    1. What are the best and worst presents you've been given? Best was a designer purse from my boyfriend; worst was a PlayStation from my family.
    2. Have you ever grown any kinds of fruit or vegetable yourself before?
    My grandfather used to grow berries if that counts?
    3. What's a good quote from the last film you saw?
    Everything will be alright in the end; and if it is not alright it is not the end.<?: prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

    I'd say number 3 is true too.

    1. What are the best and worst presents you've been given? Best present, my boyfriend gave me some beautiful earrings for last Christmas. Worst present, GPS from my parents because... well, I really don't go very far from my house/hometown.
    2. Have you ever grown any kinds of fruit or vegetable yourself before?
    I think I tried to grow strawberries once, at least, I think I planted them and then my mom took care of them.
    3. What's a good quote from the last film you saw?
    "Puny god." Haha, sorry, that's the first line from The Avengers that came to my mind. Great movie.

    1. What are the best and worst presents you've been given? This is a rather hard question to answer. I'd say one of the best presents I've received is a Disneyland pass. That was a few years ago, so currently, I don't have on, but the two years my family had passes was a lot of fun. As for the worst present, I have no idea. I, as with probably everyone else, have received gifts I didn't exactly like, but none of them were horrible.
    2. Have you ever grown any kinds of fruit or vegetable yourself before?
    Not by myself, but I do help with cutting up the peaches from our tree each summer.
    3. What's a good quote from the last film you saw?
    If I were Iron Man, I'd have this girlfriend who knew my true identity.
    She'd be a wreck. She'd always be worrying I was going to die, yet so
    proud of the man I've become. She'd be wildly conflicted, which would
    only make her more crazy about me...(Iron Man)

    Whoops, forgot to guess. I'm going to be different and say number 1.

    1. What are the best and worst presents you've been given? Best present--engagement ring! Worst present--my parents' (joking) repeated gift to me of Jelly Bellies. I like them alright, but not so much as to want them for every birthday.
    2. Have you ever grown any kinds of fruit or vegetable yourself before?
    Nope!
    3. What's a good quote from the last film you saw?
    So many from Avengers . . . There was a hilarious Legolas reference that was probably my favorite. Look it up for the quote!

    EDIT: As for my guess . . . I'll say 2.

    1. What are the best and worst presents you've been given? Best present was a car. Worst present is hard to narrow down, but I'd probably say any piece of clothing I've been given that I don't like the look of.
    2. Have you ever grown any kinds of fruit or vegetable yourself before? No, too lazy for that.
    3. What's a good quote from the last film you saw? The last film I saw was Bad Ass. And it was really bad. So there probably isn't one good quote in the whole thing.

    1. What are the best and worst presents you've been given? Best present, I'm not really sure... I usually get some really nice things. I'm not going to wrack my brain, so, it was probably a book, or when I got my first bike. That was sweet. The worst present is one of those cheap bath-set things.
    2. Have you ever grown any kinds of fruit or vegetable yourself before? Not solely. One year there was a garden behind church, and I helped till/plant/care for that. Corn, squash, tomatoes, and there may have been some watermelon.
    3. What's a good quote from the last film you saw? Erm. What was the last movie I saw? ... I did recently watched Henry V movie, so I'll quote a favourite from that. (Henry V is my favourite Shakespearean play.) This'll be a bit long. &gt;.&gt;

    [King Henry]: Upon the king! -- let us our lives, our souls, our debts, our careful wives, our children, and our sins, lay on the king! We must bear all. Oh hard condition, twin-born with greatness, subject to the breath of every fool, whose sense no more can feel but his own wringing! What infinite heart's-ease must kings neglect, that private men enjoy! And what have kings, that privates have not too, save ceremony,-- save general ceremony! But what art thou, thou idol ceremony?

    And-- hm, I'll guess 2.

    1. What are the best and worst presents you've
    been given? Underwear - both the best (when it is expensive and I am broke) and the worst (when send by aunty Flo - i will say no more...)
    2. Have you ever grown any kinds of fruit or vegetable
    yourself before? We tried a vegie garden for quite a few years - but inevitably we would get too busy or be away too long and then either the weeds or slugs would take over, or the poor veggies die of thirst....
    3. What's a good quote from the last film you saw? 'May the odds ever be in your favour" (no prizes for guessing which movie it was!)

    1. What are the best and worst presents you've been given? The best presents have been my computers because I am a child of the technology age, but I vividly remember being given a little pinball machine when I was quite young and I got up early on Christmas to play with it (talking like 3 AM here)
    2. Have you ever grown any kinds of fruit or vegetable yourself before? Sorta, yeah, my mom and we children grew tomatoes, mostly. Very nice stuff.
    3. What's a good quote from the last film you saw? "There's only one God, ma'am, and I'm pretty sure he doesn't dress like that." ~Cpt America in The Avengers

    1. What animal is your favourite &amp; why? I really like otters because they are cute, but my favorite would have to be my dog.
    2. What day is the National day of your country; &amp; how do you celebrate? The 4th of July is our Independence Day; I don't do anything in particular to celebrate. Some years I watch fireworks but it's not consistent.
    3. If you had to bake something for a birthday; what would you make? I would probably make a giant chocolate chip cookie.

    My guess: 2?

    1. What animal is your favourite &amp; why? I don't really have a favourite animal, but I do find meerkats to be cute
    2. What day is the National day of your country; &amp; how do you celebrate? America's Independence Day is July 4th. My family usually attends our neighborhood parade (the kids all decorate their bikes, scooters, etc. and have a parade at the park and the best creations get prizes.) and after the parade, there's a party there with food, drinks, a bounce house, cake walk, and a band. It's a lot of fun and everything costs 25-50Ę each.
    3. If you had to bake something for a birthday; what would you make? Well, I generally am in charge of desserts for our family parties. The last few times I've backed something it's been an oatmeal cake or a cheesecake.

    I'm going to guess 3.

    1. What animal is your favourite &amp; why? I'm going to have to be boring and say dogs. I just love them so much. I just recently lost my childhood dog, he was just getting really old, but I still have a little chihuahua. I love how they love you back so completely without question, dogs always put a smile on my face.
    2. What day is the National day of your country; &amp; how do you celebrate? 4th of July. Honestly, I usually end up working on the 4th, because everyone at my job usually wants it off and I always need the money. But, if I do have it off, I spend the day with my family, someone usually has a cookout, and we'll catch the fireworks if we can (actually going to the fireworks is always a ridiculous project with the traffic afterwords). But yeah, we'll basically just eat and drink and have a good time, spend the day outside.
    3. If you had to bake something for a birthday; what would you make? Oh man, I don't know. If I had to bake something myself, I'd probably just go with a traditional birthday cake, I'm a big fan of yellow cake and chocolate frosting. My mom got me an assortment of cheesecake for my birthday last year though, and it was all delicious. I love most desserts.

    I'm gonna guess 1, just to have all the choices covered

    1. What animal is your favourite &amp; why? I love most animals, but probably squirrels or rabbits just because they're so very cute *g*
    2. What day is the National day of your country; &amp; how do you celebrate? I guess that'd be St. George's Day, but I don't celebrate it at all.
    3. If you had to bake something for a birthday; what would you make? Cake, definitely! Chocolate, lemon or carrot. And now I'm hungry

    1. What animal is your favourite &amp; why? Giant pandas have been a favourite of mine since before I can remember. I presume it stems from the fact that Iwas given apanda bear cuddly toy for my first Christmas, and grew rather attached to it! Obviously I got older and realised my favourite cuddly toy didn't have to also be my favourite animal, but I couldn't think or anything else, and I do find pandas fascinating creatures!2. What day is the National day of your country; &amp; how do you celebrate? I'm with Raven on this, we don't really have a national day in England! St. George's Day would probably be it, but to be honest we all tend to celebrate St. Patrick's Day much more! Far more fun .3. If you had to bake something for a birthday; what would you make? Probably a chocolate cake. I was quite good at them at one point. Although my speciality seems to have become Mars Bar Cake.

    Ok, sorry about the multiple surveys. I'm a bit behind... XD

    1. Who do you love most in the world? My girlfriend, Rachael, my mommy, my daddy, my sister, my brother, and a few of my closest friends.
    2. Who loves you the most? My family and Rachael
    3. Would you sacrifice your life for the one you love most? Absolutely

    1. What are the best and worst presents you've been given? Best present would probably be the vacation I just got back from with Rachael. Our birthdays are 1 day apart, so we saved our gifts for after school got out and took a week long vacation down south and split the costs of the hotels
    2. Have you ever grown any kinds of fruit or vegetable yourself before? Not by myself, no. But my mom has and I've helped her water them... XD
    3. What's a good quote from the last film you saw? "You is smart, you is kind, and you is important" Watched The Help last week.

    1. What animal is your favourite &amp; why? Not sure. I love doggies and mownies (guinea pigs) and hedgehogs. But I really couldn't choose between the three.
    2. What day is the National day of your country; &amp; how do you celebrate? Independence day on the 4th of July. What better what to celebrate the birth of your nation then by blowing up a piece of it. :D
    aka, we lite off lots and lots of fireworks. This year, I'll be watching the Pittsburgh firework show.
    3. If you had to bake something for a birthday; what would you make? Bake? Cake of some sort probably, though I'm better at brownies... much easier to make.

    1. What animal is your favourite &amp; why? My doggy because he is cute and playful and has a beard.
    2. What day is the National day of your country; &amp; how do you celebrate? Australia Day on the 26th of January. I usually have a few beers, watch the cricket game, and listen to an alternative radio station's annual Hottest 100 alternative songs of the year as voted by the peeps.
    3. If you had to bake something for a birthday; what would you make? I can tell you right now I definitely wouldn't. I would just buy something. I hate cooking and I imagine baking would be even worse.

    Woops--sorry for the delay everyone!

    1. What is your favorite warm-weather activity, and why?
    2. Who is your favorite book character, and why?
    3. If you could hang out with your favorite book character on a warm day, would you partake in your above-mentioned favorite warm-weather activity or something else?


    Two lies and a truth . . .
    1. I frequently surprise people with how tall I am.
    2. I participated in varsity gymnastics in high school.
    3. I was a competitive classical musician in high school.

    1. What is your favorite warm-weather activity, and why? Drinking lemonade while reading a good book, sometimes outside. I love books and am pretty much always reading them and what better summer drink is there than lemonade?
    2. Who is your favorite book character, and why?
    Why must you ask this? Well, one of my favorite book characters is Anne from the Anne of Green Gables series. I like her because of her witty, charming personality and how her core personality always stays the same, despite all the changes and hardship she goes through. She also is a very realistic character.
    3.
    If you could hang out with your favorite book character on a warm day,
    would you partake in your above-mentioned favorite warm-weather activity
    or something else?
    If I spent a day with Anne, it would probably involve taking a walk and probably causing some type of chaos. She isn't quite the type to spend time reading when it's beautiful outside, though if the book was outside Ö that's an entirely different story.

    My guess will be #3.

    1. What is your favorite warm-weather activity, and why? If feeling active, definitely like playing soccer. If feeling lazy, reading outside with a good book is definitely the way to go. Also long walks on the beach.
    2. Who is your favorite book character, and why? Bink, from the two first novels about Xanth by Piers Anthony. I related so much to that character it's not even funny. His long rambling introspection reminded me too much of myself, haha.
    3.

    Oh, I'd have to teach him, but maybe!

    I'll guess #1 as the falsehood!

    1. What is your favorite warm-weather activity, and why? I like to sit outside with a book and tan. I also used to love laying outside on the hammock that we used to have at my house, that was always nice. Usually anything where I can sit and relax and read for a little while.
    2. Who is your favorite book character, and why?
    Man, that's a hard question... I don't know if I can really answer it honestly... For now, I'll go with Arya in George R. R. Martin's series, she is my favorite throughout all of the books out so far. Although I love pretty much everyone in those books... except Cersei... but I'm getting off track!
    3.
    If you could hang out with your favorite book character on a warm day,
    would you partake in your above-mentioned favorite warm-weather activity
    or something else?
    Probably something else, I don't see Arya wanting to sit down and read quietly.

    My guess is number 2!

    1. What is your favorite warm-weather activity, and why? I do like to read outside but in the shade since I'm not excatly sunworshipper. Good book, few beers and warm but not in the sun
    2. Who is your favorite book character, and why? Roland (The Gunslinger) Deschain of Gilead atm. Dark Tower-series rock Roland is so complex person. His goal and only goal is to reach the Tower and he moves toward it even though his companions and friends are dropping like flies. He mourns them greatly but his goal is just too important for him to say i don't want this no more, too many have died.
    3.
    If you could hang out with your favorite book character on a warm day,
    would you partake in your above-mentioned favorite warm-weather activity
    or something else? something else.

    1. What is your favorite warm-weather
    activity, and why? It seems strange to be discussing warm weather when wher I am it is feeling especially cold and becoming increasingly wintery! (thats the joy of living down under!) My favourite thing to do when it is warmer is to swim in the ocean!
    2. Who is your favorite book character, and why? My alltime favourite book character is probably Gollum - (not that i am like him at all my precious...) but in light of the question below I think I will change my answer to an attractive and unattached hero - that leaves quite a lot of choice really James Bond? Flashman? Sparrowhawk?
    3.
    If you could hang out with your favorite book character on a warm day,
    would you partake in your above-mentioned favorite warm-weather activity
    or something else? It depends on the inclination of my handsome book character really!

    1. What is your favorite warm-weather activity, and why? Sitting in the sun and relaxing, maybe while reading or listening to a podcast or something.
    2. Who is your favorite book character, and why? Probably the main character of Fight Club (doesn't really have a name so much).
    3.

    No I suspect we would be doing our best to subvert society and partake in much violence and hitting of rock-bottom.
