Friday Fix #40 - Meet Zahida!

Friday, January 7, 2011



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 Zahida from Musings of a YA Reader!

The Most Random Questions in the World...


1. What happens to Jolly Ranchers if the ranchers aren't jolly?

Hmm, if SweeTarts or Laffy Taffy stop becoming sweet or laffy, you’re still left with tarts or taffy. Nobody wants to eat ranchers though so they become miserable, and it’s really easy to choke on Miserable Ranchers.

2. If someone is in the electric chair and has a heart attack, do they revive him?

Nope … it’s cheaper for taxpayers if they die by a heart attack and would probably be considered more preferable by the person.

3. Can you yawn in your sleep?

Honestly, I’ve got no idea what I do when I’m asleep. My sister though will tell you that when we were younger and shared a bed, I used to kick her.

4. If someone says, "it was an uphill battle," and another says, "it went downhill from there," how are they both having trouble?

This sounds like one of those math questions involving speeding trains that I had a lot of trouble solving. I’m going to say the two people meet closer to the bottom since it’s easier to go downhill than uphill and are having trouble because they’re doing that awkward dance that people do when they’re trying to get past each other.

5. Why is there a light in the refrigerator, but not in the freezer?

Your lightbulb either died or it’s time to upgrade to more “modern” appliances.

  5. Well done Zahida, you coped really well with some really obscure random questions. I had to laugh at the one about the light in the fridge as I always wonder if the light stays on when the door is closed.

    I'd love to take part in this feature Melissa but am having difficulties contacting you - if you are interested perhaps you could e-mail me at

  8. Yay Zahida! I love the uphill/downhill question and your answer had me laughing because I do that awkward dance with people all the time. It never fails to be awkward, even it it's someone you know:) Love, love this feature!

  9. LOVE the Jolly Rancher question, haha! Reminds me of jokes when people say they're "not a happy camper."

  10. LOL! I always love these questions & responses. We used to call jolly ranchers, "happy farmers" when I was little lol. And apparently I need to upgrade my fridge because I don't have a light in my freezer.

    Thanks for bringing me smiles on my Friday workday.

  26. Hey Zahida! Great answers! I definitely need a more modern refrigerator b/c my freezer does not have a light! At night when I'm in serious need of a cold drink of water, I never bother to turn the light on in the kitchen and always end up fumbling around in the dark for some ice :oP

  27. I love both the questions and answers! You guys are so creative!

    I awarded you with the Stylish Blogger Award.

  28. Awesome questions! I was JUST wondering why there was no light in the freezer. I went to get ice, but it was dark and I dropped it all over the floor. Maybe it's too cold in the freezer and it would shatter the bulb?

  29. A little late - I had guests over yesterday and then was too tired to come online - but thanks for having me.

    Looks like I wasn't the only person wondering what was going on in math class :)

    ReplyDelete
  30. Very funny questions, very witty answers - I loved both of them! I really would like to participate but I'm afraid I am not quick-witted enough! I would never solve the "jolly ranchers" puzzle with such a flair!

    ReplyDelete
  31. LOL - I'd have to say that number 4 is my favourite. I agree with anachronist. Love this feature and would love to participate but somehow I just don't think myself witty enough to come up with fabulous comebacks to fabulous questions like yours!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I have no idea where you come up with such funny questions Melissa, but I love them. Great answers Zahida! I never want to choke on a Miserable Rancher.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I've always wondered about that freezer one. Really, why not put a light in the freezer. Do you know how annoying it is to be midnight eating and not be able to find the chocolate ice cream stashed in the back?! Geesh Fridgadair! Get it together! LOL!

  34. The Jolly Rancher one is still making me giggle :) I love these random questions and the light in the frig/freezer will forever be a mystery in my book!
