Friday Fix #41 - Meet Jen!

Friday, January 14, 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 Jen from In the Closet with a Bibliophile!

The Most Random Questions in the World...

1. If you're "not yourself today," then who the heck are you?

A crazy deranged soul named Alice who loves popsicles and ice cream and maybe even some cookies. She doesn't think rationally and yells on command. I'm sensing some possible anger issues as well.

2. If you don't pay an exorcist, can you be repossessed?

Depends on the exorcist, If it's anything like Downside Ghosts (by Stacia Kane), then the exorcist would pay me to remove the ghost, so it's not a problem. Otherwise, my thinking is that demons are scary and should be avoided at all costs so if you must be exorcised, and you have to pay, always pay because the exorcist could try and release the demon/possessor from it's prison of ungodly terror. *shudders* And that would not be pretty.

3. Why is a building called a building if it's already built?

Well, the person who made up the word "building" was too lazy to think of another one for the finished product so he/she/it? was like "We can just have the word be a verb and a noun and call it day. Who wants coffee?"

4. What happens if someone becomes addicted to therapy?

They get to pay someone $300 an hour to tell them that they aren't "really" addicted to therapy and that it was a very nice session and they will see them again tomorrow for their next session where they will discuss their feelings concerning their "so-called" addiction to therapy and that it's not really a big deal to talk about your feelings to a dedicated professional for 10 hours a day as long as you can "find yourself" in the next 10 to 20 years.

5. Why do we say something is out of whack? What is whack?

Whack is seriously and totally when something is off the charts, out of sync with it's normal sway in the world...yo! So we say things are out of whack because we think it makes us sound urban and super cool, which by the way, it totally does. Which, I'll have you know, that there are multiple meanings of the word "whack" many of which definitely don't go with that saying and also...they make me giggle. (because I'm a total nerd!)
