Friday Fix #49 - Meet Ashley!

Friday, March 11, 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 are the Ashley from Books from Bleh to Basically Amazing!

The Most Random Questions in the World...

1. You still have to stop at a drivethrough, so isn't that false advertising?

Of course! But then again, so is: "This food tastes great!" or "Garden Fresh Salad". "Best burger in town"

2. Why do we scrub down, but we wash up?

It's actually rather complicated, dealing with the socioeconomic relations between Lords and serfs in the dark ages. Serfs do the scrubbing. They are already beneath the Lords, but they had to go even lower to scrub, so it's 'scrub down'. When you bathe, you are trying to become clean, and better yourself. So, you 'wash up' in the hopes of becoming better than you are.

3. Why do car speedometers go up to 120+ mph but there are pretty much no roads you can go that fast on? 
It's a conspiracy with police departments. They make cars capable of going much faster than legal. They make cop cars just a smidge faster (true story actually, there is a speed cap on standard cars that manufacturers remove for police cars, at least in the US) Anyway, it's this huge conspiracy so that cops have more people to pull over. I don't know what the car companies get out of it. I don't want to know. It's probably something creepy, like overlooking the bodies in the basement.

4. Why does Donald Duck wear a towel when exiting the shower if he never wears pants anyway? 
One part of him must be covered at all times. It's in his contract. His torso may be bare, but his legs cannot- hence, the towel. Or, his legs can be naked but he must wear a shirt. There was a lot of controversy over it. Micky was very jealous. Threatened to quit over it, actually.

5. If a cat always lands on its feet, and buttered bread always lands butter side down, what would happen if you tied buttered bread on top of a cat?

Ooooh! I don't know, but I bet it would be really fun to watch... Excuse me one moment while I got experiment...

Back now. You will never guess the crazy things I just witnessed. I don't even think I have the words to describe... But you will probably be happy to know the cat was not harmed, and seems to like butter.


Ashley, you crack me up...especially with the cat answer. I'm so glad to hear that you figured that one out because 1) there's no butter in my house and 2) my Bengal would eat me alive before I put buttered toast on her back. All of you should visit Ashley's awesome blog, Books From Bleh to Basically Amazing! She has great features and fantastic reviews - a definite favourite of mine.

Also - remember to enter my 25th Birthday Bash Giveaway going on now. There's a good bunch of ARCs and three winners!

  5. This comment has been removed by the author.

  6. LOL!! I can understand Micky's jealousy. ;)

  7. Okay, seriously? Best set of questions and answers yet! I agree completely on the police conspiracy, they obviously work with the car manufacturers to ensure that we have vehicles that go much faster than we are actually allowed to go. And the Donald Duck no pants situation? Hilarious! Well done ladies, this was too much fun to read!
