Friday Fix #51 - Meet Julia!

Friday, March 25, 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 Julia from That Hapa Chick!
The Most Random Questions in the World...

1. Why is an outlet called that if you plug something into it? Shouldn't it be an inlet?

Awww yes that is a puzzling question. That is until you think about the fact that the energy comes OUT of the outlet and into whatever you're trying to power. Then it makes perfect sense!

2. Why does Goofy get to stand up if Pluto has to remain on all fours?

You see when they were first trying to figure out who would play Goofy they couldn't decide between two dog actors so they had to pick randomly. They felt so bad for the actor who wasn't picked that they offered to write a part especially for him. Unfortunately they couldn't write in another walking talking dog so they had no choice but to make him Mickey's pet Pluto who can only bark and walk on all fours.

3. Why isn't there a name for the tops of your feet, but there is a name for the bottom of your feet?

This is a question that NEEDS to be answered! Especially since just about every other part of our foot has a name. Toes, heel, arch, etc. I personally will start calling it the dome of the foot. Who's with me?

4. If you plan to have no plans at all, do you have a plan?

This is a sticky situation. Some people will argue that you have a plan to have no plans but others will say you have no plan at all and that you are merely a time waster. Personally I like to think it means you are spontaneous.

5. If your seat is a flotation device, why doesn't the airplane just become a boat?

My thoughts exactly! I mean if Chitty Chitty Bang Bang can change from a car, a boat, AND an airplane I don't see why modern airplanes can't too! Unfortunately modern airplane manufacturer's don't agree with me. They went the cheap route and decided to only make only the seats float.

  1. LMAO! Great Friday Fix. That question and the answer about the top of your feet had me cracking up :)

  2. Dome of the foot , I am so totally with you ;)))).

  3. I have always wondered about Goofy and Pluto. Thanks for answering the question, Julia! :D
    Another hilarious edition of Friday Fix!

  4. I loved the question and answer about the outlet very scientific. Also the foot dilemma the top is called the dorsal, but I like dome better! Once again thanks for my Friday fix!

  5. I love that Goofy question, since I always wondered about.

  6. Question 1 oddly reminded me of a question I used to ponder. Why don't foot and boot rhyme?

  7. I like your question answers and I'm your newest follower, but I've always heard the top of your foot is the bridge of your foot.

    Anyway, please stop by to follow my blog and read some reviews if you have some time! Thanks! (^_^)
