Friday Fix #17 - Meet Audrey!

Friday, September 3, 2010

The Friday Fix is a takeover of my Friday blog post by other bloggers who have volunteered their time and energy to "star" in their very own guest post on Friday. Only one mandatory rule (you can't get out of it!) - you must answer five of the most random questions I throw your way. The rest is up to you. Remember, if you'd like to be featured on the Friday Fix, send me an email, and let me know! So, without further ado, here is Audrey from Brizmus Blogs Books!

The Most Random Questions in the World...

1. Why does minute rice have to cook 15 minutes? Isn't that false advertising?

I have always felt EXACLTLY the same way about this. If it's 15 minute rice, the call it that. And besides, doesn't normal rice only take about 20 minutes to cook anyway? I think that there is nothing about the cooking time that makes this rice special and advertising it as such is, as you said, false advertising. Just wrong.

2. Why is it called rush hour if traffic is soooooo slow?

I like to think that they are talking about rush as in the verb - where, like, a bear would rush a person. Or a football player would rush another. Coming at them quickly and unexpectedly. The cars rush the road, and the road, despite suffering through the same thing at the same time everyday, is totally unexpected. So rush hour - the hour in which the cars rush the road.
(iswimforoceans note - ok...never would have thought of that!)

3. What's the difference between normal ketchup and fancy ketchup?

I have no idea - the packaging perhaps. In any case, they are both disgusting to me. Maybe fancy ketchup has a dash of mustard already added in, just to up the ickiness factor.

4. If a baby's feet emerge at 11:59 pm, but the head doesn't emerge until 12:01 am, what day is the baby born on?

I'm going to go with the 12:01 day, because that's when the baby is fully out. Or rather, on which day of the week the mother likes best. I think the more important question is: what if they're in a car, and they're in Texas when the feet emerge at 11:59 PM and then in Louisana for the head at 12:01 AM - what state were they born in?

5. Is it legal to drive down a road in reverse as long as you're following the direction of traffic?

Who knows - probably not, but that's never stopped me from doing it! In any case, if it's not, it totally should be - people probably pay way more attention when they're driving backwards, anyway.
