I'm sick but in denial, so this will be semi-coherent.

EDIT: Oops. I forgot to post the rules or tag people or do anything survey-ish.

The Rules:
1. You must post the rules.  (this is awkward.)
2. Post eleven fun facts about yourself on the blog post.
3. Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post, and then create eleven new questions to ask the people you've tagged.
4. Tag eleven bloggers, however, you can break the rules and tag fewer people if you want. Make sure you hyperlink their names/blogs.
5. Let them know you've tagged them!
6. Have fun!

 Flyergirl at the lovely Drizzled in Awesomeness tagged me in a Question Thing. I like her blog. It's a good blog. I enjoy her posts.

1) What is your favorite smell?
I like the smell of books. New books smell like excitement, fresh knowledge. Old books replace that smell with one of either wisdom or mothballs. I can't tell which.

2) Who would win in a fight: Neil Patrick Harris or Darren Criss?
Neil Patrick Harris. He has a death ray, can pick up the ladies, and is adorable.
Although Darren Criss plays guitar and sings, he cannot match NPH's prowess. Then again, DC does have magic.
I HAVE AN IDEA! I can ship them, right? Okay, great. They will suddenly realize that they love each other and collapse into a sweaty heap of limbs. DC will be on top.

3) Tell us a nerdy joke.
I have many, many, many of those.
Helium walks into a bar. "We don't serve noble gases here," sneers the bartender. Unconcerned, He doesn't react.
A Higgs Boson particle walks into a church. The priest tells him to leave. "You can't be here! They call you the God particle! That's sacrilegious!" Higgs Boson replies, "but without Higgs Boson, how can there be mass?"

4) Describe a situation in which socks and sandals would be acceptable footwear.
I may have worn them hiking before. I couldn't find any closed-toe shoes and needed to cover my feet, so I figured that if my socks were awesome enough people would forget about the sandals. It didn't work.

They might be acceptable on Sheldon Cooper. Yes, they would be acceptable on Sheldon Cooper. Definitely.

5) How will you ever get out of this labyrinth?
I like puzzles, the suffering's worth it. I'll stay here all day.

6) What food would you like to have growing on a tree in your backyard?
Cabbages which turn into anything you wish them to be. Is it strange that that makes more sense to me than the idea of cabbages growing on trees?

7) Compose a poem describing the nature of a stubbed toe at 3 AM.

A form of poem of my own invention:
Oh no!
I stubbed my toe!
This isn't fun, I have to go!
OH CRAP I CAN'T WALK BECAUSE MY TOE HURTS TOO MUCH. I woke up the dog, too. He's barking now.
Oh no, stubbed toe.

A haiku:
a toe meets staircase
and a staircase meets a toe
staircase has more fun
I thought that the Helvetica was a nice touch.

8) What is a quark?
You mean a fundamental constituent of matter observed in 1968 through deep elastic scatter? If you don't know what a quark is, it don't matter, you've still got 'em. Oh, strange charm.
It's also a type of cheese.

9) What is the best way to eat an Oreo?
Eat the first one by biting right in. After that, divide all remaining Oreos to be eaten into an icing pile and a cookie pile. Eat 90% of icing, then all of the cookies but one, then the remaining 10% of icing, then drink a glass of milk, then eat the last cookie.
I think about this too much.

10) Feelings about Kony 2012?
These two articles sum it up pretty well.
I won't throw my money at Invisible Children but the documentary was compelling and awareness is a good thing. It needs to be about Joseph Kony, not Kony 2012, though.

11) What would you do with a superpower that allowed you to use your toes as fingers?
I already use my toes as fingers. I'd love to develop the ability to play guitar or piano with them, though. I could do duets with myself. That would be really cool.

I think that I need to sleep now. Good night.

I'll make up the questions and tag people in the morning.


P.S. I think that the quality of this post is unparalleled, no? 


  1. Happy pi day indeed! Also:

    Happy Einstein's Birthday! :)

    I'm making a giant rhubarb pie on Friday to celebrate. =D

    1. Oooh, pie.

      Thank you for knowing that it was Einstein's birthday! ^.^
      I was going to write a post on it. Then I forgot.

  2. :D
    I like the part about quarks.

    1. Is this the Lauren I think it is? >:D

  3. I actually lolled at the Higgs Boson joke. I think i might be a secret nerd. I also liked your views on Joseph Kony.

    1. A SECRET NERD?! NOBODY IS NERDY ROUND THESE PARTS. I shall have to shun you.
      Thank you. I think that I like my views on Joseph Kony as well. Think being an operative word here.

  4. Ah, Pi Day. :D I got a pencil with pi on it from my teacher.

    Books smell great. Especially new ones.

    Your method of consuming Oreos is quite original. I just split the cookie open. I eat the half with less cream first. And then I eat the best part for last. That part gets dunked in milk. Heh. ^_^

    1. I like your teacher. I happen to be on Spring break, so no pi pencils for me. :(

      Books do smell great. Bookstores as well.

      That's also a great method. Classic. :D

  5. I'm not sure if I already knew that you were a nerdfighter, but I do now. DFTBA!

  6. I just ended up following you because of your unparalleled posts. YOU ARE AWESOME!

  7. What the hell, I thought I followed this second blog of yours when you first created it. And now I've missed all your stuff. Do you know how cut I am? I'm as cut as a cheesecake that's just found out it is not a cheesecake at all but a carrotcake, and as such will not receive as much love. That's how cut I am.


    It proves how much I suck at all sciences, because it took me a bit to get those two jokes. Trippin'. And it's been aaages since I've had an Oreo. I think I'll go and buy some next time I'm out. Cheers.

  8. (Hi Gabi! If you remember me, I am back at a new location, just like you but a million years later.)

    Oh, periodic table jokes. The little dears. Piano-playing toes are now on my wishlist.


Comments make me feel all warm and fuzzy, and I'm very interested in what you say. :D
