Having said that, I thought I would make the second one a bit easier. And by easier I mean completely random and egocentric. How’s that for fair!
The prize remains the same—a kick-ass Popener and a postcard from Rome. The person to answer the most questions correctly wins. If there are several of you who get all the answers correct (and seriously, you better get them all right), I’ll have the random number generator choose a winner.
All right, people, get crackin’!
1) Why did I decide to study the Romans?
(a) They’re an entertainingly debauched people who left me bits of buildings to study.
(b) Latin was easier for me to understand than ancient Greek.
(c) I would get to travel around the Mediterranean and be able to call it work-related.
(d) All of the above.
2) What is my favorite Roman imperial name?
3) What do I want to be when I
(b) The professor who is feared by all undergraduates
(d) Any of the above would do as long as I was finished writing this god-forsaken dissertation.
4) Where would I most like to visit on a non-work related holiday?
5) What was one of my mother’s favorite endearments for me while I was growing up?
(c) golden child
(d) squirrel bait
6) How many licks does it take to get to the Tootsie roll center of a Tootsie pop?
(d) I don’t care. I don’t like Tootsie rolls.
7) If you’ve recognized the pattern in the answers, then you are:
(a) a genius
(b) a member of Mensa
(c) very astute
(d) pretty average actually
Same spiel as last time. Type your answers in the comments of this post by 5 pm EST on Friday, October 24. The winner will be revealed on Monday.
Good luck, godspeed, and I hope you don’t choke. Again.
This is my last post for the week. I have no idea what to write about anymore. (Sweet lord, I’m turning into Razz. How horrible is that!) My runs are fairly standard and boring. (Except for the ginormous 20-miler I have planned for this weekend. Eek!) There’s also an important deadline hanging over my head, which means I’m not getting out and about much into the city lately. Honestly, the only really exciting thing to happen to me this week is that I finally received my absentee ballot in the mail yesterday. Yay for being able to do my civic duty! Well, at least I’m trying to think of it as exciting.
If you have any post topic ideas, suggest away in the comments. As of right now, I’m completely tapped out.
Have a good weekend, everyone.
P.S.—TFH, sorry dear, but you’ve already won so you’re not eligible for the prize again. Feel free to mess with the other participants though. Anything to amuse yourself. And me too of course. :)
