Tense for a Reason

Quiz Time (Post #23)

Filed under: Trivia — Tense @ 7:00 pm

Movie quotes this time.  With the exception of one, they should all be complete “gimmes.”  Email me with your answers at tenseteacherATgmailDOTcom.  I seem to get them much more quickly that way.   And, here’s the prize we’ll play for, a genu-wine Mississippi sippee bottle. (Try to say THAT quickly.)

Prize - Sippee Bottle

1. “Surely you can’t be serious.
“I am serious, and don’t call me Shirley.”

2. “Vaiter, there is too much pepper on my poppykosh… but I’d be proud to partake of your pecan pie!”

3. “I bet you money she’s paid $500 for that dress and doesn’t even bother to wear a girdle.”
“It’s like two pigs fighting under a blanket.
“Well, I haven’t left the house without lycra on these thighs since I was 14.”
“You were brought up right.”

4. “Claire, would you ever consider dating a guy with elephantitis of the nuts? If you went on a date with him you’d probably have to ride in the back seat because his nuts would ride shotgun.”

5. “Did you ever find bugs bunny attractive when he put on a dress and acted like a girl bunny?”
“Uhh…no. No!”
“I didn’t either, I was just checking.”

6. “I want you to get married. I want you to have nine kids, and if you only spend fifteen minutes with each one, that’s 45 minutes, all to myself, and I could at least have enough time to go out and get a massage or something!”

7. “What’s so funny?”
“Now the whole world’s going to know you died scratching my balls!”

8. “Why is the rum gone?”
“One, because it is a vile drink that turns even the most respectable men into complete scoundrels. Two, that signal is over a thousand feet high. The entire Royal Navy is looking for me, do you really think there is a chance they wont see it?”
“But why is the rum gone?”


Another Quiz (Post #15)

Okay, I think it’s time for another game to win a prize. Geek came up with the idea for this one, and I like it. If you can guess 5 things that are in my food cupboard (not the fridge), you win these dishcloths/pot holders that I knit all. by. myself. These things are great to put under hot dishes so they don’t ruin tablecloths, and my MIL says they make the best rags for washing dishes. They’re made of a pale lemon-colored cotton yarn; one has a butterfly and the other is a sunflower. See? (It’s the best pic I could get.)

Prize - Dishcloths

Okay, get to guessing — what’s in my food cupboard? Five things. Now I’ve got to go look for myself.

EDIT: Chatty won with these — 1. Popcorn  2. Aluminum foil  3. Boxes of spaghetti  4. Peanut butter  5. Cereal

Trivia Time (Post #9)

I think I’m going to give away my first prize now — it’s Mississippi-made snack foods… chocolate and munchies. If you know your 80s music, this ought to be a breeze. For the lyrics I post, give me the song title and the artist. If you don’t want to post your answers in the comments (and risk someone stealing them), send me an email at tenseteacherATgmailDOTcom. First one to get them all right wins this:

Prize - Snackage


1. Moving on the floor now, babe, you’re a bird of paradise
Cherry ice cream smile I suppose it’s very nice
With a step to your left and a flick to the right
You catch the mirror way out West
You know you’re something special and you look like you’re the best.  — “Rio” – DuranDuran

2. See the kids just getting out of school
They can’t wait to hang out and be cool
Hang around ’til quarter after twelve
That’s when they fall in line  — “We Got the Beat” – GoGo’s

3. Hot summer streets
And the pavements are burning
I sit around
Trying to smile but
The air is so heavy and dry  — “Cruel Summer” – Bananarama

4. The blonde waitresses take their trays
They spin around and they cross the floor
They’ve got the moves
You drop your drink then they bring you more  — “Walk Like An Egyptian” – The Bangles

5. I guess I shoulda closed my eyes
When u drove me 2 the place
Where your horses run free
Cuz I felt a little ill
When I saw all the pictures
Of the jockeys that were there before me  — “Little Red Corvette” – Prince

6. The language of love has left me stony grey
Tongue tied and twisted at the price I’ve had to pay
Your careless notions have silenced these emotions
Look at all the foolishness your lover’s talk has done  — “Who’s That Girl” – Eurythmics

7. She’ll only come out at night
The lean and hungry type
Nothing is new, I’ve seen her here before
Watching and waiting
She’s sitting with you but her eyes are on the door  — “Maneater” – Hall & Oates

8. Used to go to dinner almost every night
Danced until I thought I’d lose my breath
Now it seems your dancin’ feet are always on my couch
Good thing I cook or else we’d starve to death…  –“What Have You Done for Me Lately” – Janet Jackson

Alrighty people, get to guessing! There’s food at stake.  EDIT: Frankie wins!
