Friday Fix #20 - Meet Amanda!

Friday, September 24, 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 Amanda from Another Book Junkie!

The Most Random Questions in the World...

1. How does a Real Estate company sell its office?

Hire another Real Estate company? I honestly don't know.

2. Is there a time limit on the predictions of fortune cookies?

Nope. So when you received your very first paycheck, you can contribute it to that fortune cookie you cracked when you were five, saying there was cash in your future.

3. Why does the Easter Bunny carry eggs if rabbits don't lay eggs?

The only answer I can think of here, is the factual one. Easter originated as a Pagan holiday, where both the Bunny and Egg are symbols of fertility.

4. If something is selling like fast do hotcakes sell?

I'd imagine extremely fast, if you're at an IHOP.

5. Do you wake up or open your eyes first?

I wake up first. I have nights when I wake up (in my head) and can hear what's going on around me, I can smell, feel the fan, but I can't move. I feel like I'm trapped inside my own head. It still freaks me out, though I've been told that it's more than likely just panic attacks while I'm sleeping, or sleep paralysis. From a logical stance, I'd think we wake up first anyways. Our brain would need to wake up in order to send the message to our eyelids, right?

  14. Ha! Love #2 ;)

    Awesome questions and answers!

  15. These posts of yours are beyond awesome. I love the randomness of it all :)

  16. Now I completely get your blog title! Thanks for commenting on your open water swimming - I'm amazed. This has to be extremely challenging. I have read a book about someone who trains in open water and all the elements you guys deal with.

    I'm not a swimmer but took swimming lessons about 3 years ago. I challenged myself to learn to swim and swim one mile without stopping. I did it and haven't been in the water since! :)

    It's the breathing that makes me uncomfortable but you go girl! I will keep running :).

    Now to the post: I love this idea! Great questions.

  17. I'm new to the blog-o-sphere. I am wiggling my way around and this post just cracked me up. Needless to say, I am your most humble new follower.

    I should also say I love swimming in the ocean! Such soothing waves....
