Andrei in the office

Friday Five

I got the email reminder last night but saw fiannaharpar's. And thought, "Yeah..."

So, from the home office in, :

1. Using one adjective, describe your current living space.

2. Using two adjectives, describe your current employer.
Corporate, Curious

3. Using three adjectives, describe your favorite hobby/pasttime.
Spiritual, Fulfilling, BUSY

4. Using four adjectives, describe your typical day.
lumbering, enigmatic, relieving, relaxing

5. Using five adjectives, describe your ideal life.
joyous, spiritual, adventurous, romantic, plesantly-surprising
With 5 adjectives you get one bonus adverbial modifier

No really, it's actually funny...

My home page is the auto provided page by an Apple installation. (Yes, I know... I know) Normally there is some really stupid article like, "7 tips for guys about kissing" which usually reduces to, "When you're in the bar..."

Todays actually gave me a smile and I'm half tempted to play with the brand spanking new "Phone Post" mechanism, to reproduce some of these pearls.

In the tradition of Robin Williams trying to not get a nanny position in Mrs Doubtfire:

Here are- "20 ways to monkey with telemarketers"

My Retaliation

Okay.. Here it goes. The gauntlet was thrown by yourtoy. Though I could be egotistical and claim it was the posting of the 80s lyrics quiz.

Yourtoy presented a list of lyrics from musicals. All you had to do was name the musical and the song. Let me tell you. I haven't had a mental workout like that in ages. I take my musical theatre very seriously ;) And I am pleased that I knew all phew 44 entries. I will admit it is partially due to my knowledge and always being open to the musicals that people in my life have introduced me to. Which just for a quick mention is "HeatherPamReganLynneShawnCarrieVaticanDeviKelleyCynthiaMyfather..." and anyone else I forget.

So, I needed another mental workout.

There are three quizzes in one. First. 15 + 1 lyrics. The one is 1 that I had no clue about but decided to add after I did some research and found a long sought after answer for my loved one. As she's reading this she is possibly doing the patented BH master schoolgirl jump. (See #4)

Part 2 is some bonus questions. They are sneakier.

Part 3 is seeing how well you really know your stuff.

Each question has a score attached. There are also 10 bonus points each for any errors you find. I think there may be one.

I have taken the gauntlet... and here is my challenge! Good luck!
(let's hope I did the forms right)

Part 1: Know thy Musicals!

Part 2: Know thy Musicals! Bonus Round 1 - Not a stage musical
Collapse )

Part3: Know thy Musicals! Mega Bonus Round 2 - The Nitty Gritty
Collapse )

EDIT: Put the quizzes behind cuts.
EDIT: Added enough space to answer question 4 from the 2nds bonus rounds extra credit.
EDIT: Softened the language ;)

Turns out question 4 of Bonus round 2 requires more than 100 characters if you want the mondo points so... Behind the cut is the space to give your all to that question.

“Long day--very long day--but knocked off a critical bug at the office, & managed to put together <a href="">a rather nasty musical trivia question quiz</a>, which we'll be curious to see if anybody's able to answer anything, especially <span class='ljuser' style='white-space: nowrap;'><a href=''><img src='' alt='userinfo' width='17' height='17' style='vertical-align: bottom; border: 0;' /></a><a href=''><b>yourtoy</b></a></span> (user who put me up to it). Good luck to anybody who gives it a shot. Bye bye.”
