Blog Blizzard Meme

With all the evil winter weather I've survived this week, I'm just not up for writing a post today, so I enlisted the help of the Meme Queen for a some blog fodder, and very apropos fodder at that.

It's a blog blizzard! Test your survival skills or at least laugh.

1. An unexpected blizzard occurs. The power goes out for 10 days. There is no food in the house, no gas in the car, no heat, no TV, no computer, nada! You are snowed in and can't get to the store for supplies. How would you survive? How would you get out of this mess?

Well, I would use Daddy-O's rifle and shoot my own dinner. I do know how to use a gun so stop laughing. Better yet I would probably knock on the neighbors' doors and beg for food. I could make a fire and melt snow for water. And I can read by candle light.

2. Tell us about your last snowball fight.
I was living in the Wild West and I let the junior class go outside and play in the snow- that fell in MAY! I was stunned at snow in May and I made an arbitrary decision to go outside and play. We did. Of course, they had to write about it later, but it was great. I was pelted very little and couldn't hit the broad side of a... school, but it was a good time.

3. You have been asked to make a snowman. What is his name?
Well, Frosty... duh. What else could it be? Samuel the Snowman?

4. I have mountains of snow outside my door. I would like to make snow soup. What is the recipe?
Snow, sugar, vanilla

5. It is Day 5 of the Big Blog Blizzard. You have been hunkered down for a very long time and in danger of losing your sanity. Your blog neighbors (that would be us) come callin' to see if you're OK. We peek in the window. What do we see? What are you doing in there?
Dancing with snowmen, of course...

6. Who is the flakiest snowflake in your life? Past or present.
Is it mean if I answer this? I'm probably the flakiest but if I have to choose someone else I would say XRayGirl, but I love her anyway!!!

7. You are Snow White. Which dwarf is your favorite and why?
Dopey... hey, I'm a teacher so I always want to educate. (Why not the rich doctor, you might wonder? My mom always told me I could be at convention full of doctors having a formal dinner and I would be going home with the waiter...)

8. What is the most fun you've ever had inside during a snowstorm?
Sex. Duh... what else would really expect me to say? It was a damn long time ago but sex is still the answer.

9. What was Jack Frost nipping at?
He wasn't inside with me having fun in a snow storm... Anyway, I believe the lyrics say Jack Frost was nipping at "your nose" but I've always wondered if he was nipping at the whiskey bottle.

10. Due to blobal warming (that's blog + global for all you non-blog speakers) your snowman has prematurely melted. What was his last request?
"For all people to come together to end global warming"

Take my word for it, after 5 days without power, (i,e. no heat, no electricity, NO WATER!) you would not be dancing around the room with anyone. After just 2 1/2 days without, all I wanted to do was cry. Very funny though. I kinda like Samuel Snowman.

Maggie darling I am honoured to be the only one receiving Valentine wishes. To tell you the truth, I too an planning to treat the day as a normal day. Every day is Valetine's day if one is happy and healthy. Have a lovely weekend my friend and just know that even though we have not met face to face, I do consider you a dear friend and have only the best wishes for you.

Love & Hugs

I understand what you are going through. I would have to leave home if I did not have power that long. I have been our for two days, but finally got it back this morning. You have a nice Pink Saturday feature.

Dru said...

Wow! I guess I would put on a lot of clothes, get all my candles out and light them, eat crackers and cheese, and get a lot of reading done - actually doesn't sound toooo bad - I don't know about 10 days though! Great pink post, welcome and Happy Pink Valentine Saturday!

Maggie said...

Curley- I would NOT like any days without heat. water, etc EVER! I don't know how you did it!

Duchess- aw shucks thank you Duchess. Happy Valentine's Day to you!

LV- I'm so sick of winter already and we still have about 2 months to go. Ick!

Dru- cheese are crackers are the perfect no power dinner- when I lived in the Wild West I did that when we lost power, which was often.

Thanks so much for visiting!
