Did I flunk Ms. Wose??

Tuesday Girl said...

New to your blog, I am a North Jersey girl, recently transplanted in South Jersey.

I think I may steal this meme.

Flounder said...

How the hell can a self-respecting Jersey girl list "okra" as a favorite food? That's got to be the fake!

Brookelina said...

I couldn't think of a food I didn't like!! How sad is that?

Brookelina said...

Weed - you did good!

Tuesday - steal away. And where are you in South Jersey?

Monkey said...

Lets see... this is fun...

Brad Pitt's bed

Brookelina said...

Brad Pitt's bed!!! Are you kidding!!!!

Flounder said...

When I was a freshman at Florida State, they had fried okra in the cafeteria. All of my dorm mates were scarfing it down, so I tried it, even though I had never even heard of it before. It took a fifth of Makers Mark to get that funky ass taste out of my mouth!

Bottom line, if you are from "The Garden State", and you have never heard of a particular fruit or vegetable, then it probably sucks and you should have nothing to do with it.

This comment brought to you by the New Jersey Farmers Association. Produce from anywhere else just sucks.

Monkey said...

Well I don't want to be in his bed! I have a horrible idea of the things he might talk about after sex. IT would be depressing. Depressing I tell you!

Now let's see... Hugh Jackman?

Brookelina said...

Flounder - I'm going to have to agree with you on that one. Florida produce sucks too. Can't wait to be back in Jersey next summer for the corn, tomatoes, blueberries.....

Monkey - you must elaborate. What sorts of things would Brad talk about after sex. I must know!!!
And Hugh is fine. Fine fine fine.

Darth - hehehe

gone said...

You are simply meme-a-licious!

And Mac first changed her photo then her moniker.

I can't handle all this today.

none - ya said...

Pickled okra is much better than fried okra. Yum yum.

Brookelina said...

Mac - do you mind? I'm trying to eat here.

Danielle said...

This is so fun with the twist, I can't wait to see which will be red! I will be back to see!

Bill said...

Everyone's talking about okra and I don't even know what it is. I googled it and it doesn't look like anything I recognize. From the mixed opinions, I'm guessing that's a good thing. I'll stick with raspberries.

No need to highlight in red. I knew that school teacher business was a sham. And I'm pretty sure you have a husky, sultry voice. For all I know, I've spoken to you!

Liked your approach to the meme. I should have done that with mine (the guessing business).

You need to tell us at the end who was closest!

Brookelina said...

Oh cool! I'll give the winner a lap dance! Or write them a dirty letter. Or maybe I'll just cook them a nice dinner.

Brookelina said...

And Bill - I have been told I have a good voice for phone sex ...ya never know...

Orange is my power color, and I was a baby bear

jiggs said...

I wouldn't mind being in Brad Pitt's bed if Angelina was there and he had gone out for some smokes of something. Oh who am I kidding. I'd be in Brad Pitt's bed if Brad Pitt was in it without Jolie. Of course, we would just lie there naked and talk about feelings.

Brookelina said...

Jill - very good!

Calzone - as usual, I'm at a loss.

Jiggs - I'd be in that bed with both of them too. And there ain't no way we are going to talk about feelings.

Egan - you know me well. Almost!

Neil said...

skipped one... martha stewart

There's no way you would have enough patience to be a phone sex operator.

Zombie Lou said...

Lou Reed tries to talk after sex. Lou Reed's tongue is stuck to the roof of his mouth. Lou Reed needs water. Water. Water of life. Oh sweet Jesus, water. Water.

Brad Pitt shared Lou Reed's bed. Lou Reed was disappointed.

ChickyBabe said...

Good to see the SMH site up there! :)

Jill said...

I thought for sure that you were playing tricks in the vacation category.

Brookelina said...

Neil - I could totally be a phone sex operator. You haven't heard my voice.

Lou - you shared Brad's bed and were disappointed? You really are a tool.

Chicky - I always keep up with my home away from home.

Jill - Bora Bora is my dream vacation spot - that'll be my honeymoon.

Spinning Girl said...

Somebody get Lou a drink already.
This meme is fun with the twist, eh? I saw it somewhere wihtout the twist, so I added it, and it's fun to see people run with it.
I think I want to start my own meme.

Bill said...

All this sex operator talk ... It's curious I should be listening to Nick Lowe and "Switchboard Susan":

When I'm near you girl, I get an extension
And I don't mean Alexander Graham Bell's invention
Switchboard Susan, can we be friends
After six, at weekends
I'm a long distance romancer
l keep on trying till I get an answer


I'm just saying the universe has strange ways ...

Egan said...

Damn that Bora Bora.

Flounder said...

Adding to what Bill said...

I remember seeing a band one spring break at Woody's in Islamorada, FL called Big Dick and the Extenders. They were, and apparently still are a local legend. Best house band I've ever seen, and they certainly have the best name. Check them our if you ever get down to the Keys, Brooke.

Tumbleweed said...

I think Egan cheated!

sandra said...

We actually played a game sort of like this at a work dinner party (it was a "get the non-work conversation started because we're FUN, dammit" game) and I realized that I lie very poorly on command. All of my lies...were terribly obvious and not even really all that creative. Which makes me want to do this and lie well.

miss kendra said...

you should never have told.

i would have believed the phone sex thing.

there's still time...

Melliferous Pants said...

I want to go to Bora Bora!

I usually go to Utah with my vacation time. Utah is not a vacation. I also go to Vegas, which is fun, but it more like a three day bender than R&R. I have to take time OFF when I get home from vacation.

Egan said...

Tumbleweed, I didn't cheat. That blog orgy of Brooke's though did allow me to get to know her on a very different level.

JJ said...

We are so sympatico.

Jaxe said...

You forgot this one:

Four people you hate the most:

1. Jaxe
2. Jaxe
3. Jaxe
4. Jaxe
5. Satan (in red)

Ass!

j

im here somewhere said...

lol, i was a little late on this one. as i was reading it, the answers were already in red and i was thinking the ending would be some smartass remark...but no, i was just late.*sigh*
i never get to play anymore.

WhiteBoyBob said...

Where's Bora Bora? Is that next to Tora Bora in Afghanistan? Are you and Osama an item? We need to know!

Brookelina said...

Spinning - the twist made it so much cooler. I should have waited to give my answers, but I didn't really think anyone would actually play.

Bill - see? I should have been a phone sex girl. It was my calling.

Egan - never curse Bora Bora!

Flounder - that is an awesome name for a band. I'll look for them.

Weed - well you know how he is....

Sandra - I am a deadpan liar. My ex used to say I could convince someone that the grass was blue and the sky was green. But I'm painfully honest, so sooner or later I wind up fessing up.

Kendra - call me!

Pants - since I'm not getting married anytime soon, you and I can go to Bora Bora together.

Egan - me? Try all the other girls you were flirting with the whole time.

JJ - that's why you are my supermodel boyfriend.

Jaxe - I don't hate you. I just like to abuse you. I could never hate anyone with a body like yours.

lilred - I gave away the answers too early. My timing always sucks.

WBB - Bora Bora is in French Polynesia off of Tahiti. But you already knew that you dork.

Bill said...

Years ago back in Ottawa there was a band called Bolt Upright and the Erections (or, as mentioned on radio, Bolt Upright and the E's.)

I think they were ahead of their time. Well, their name was.

Egan said...

Brooke, I have told you this many times before, however it doesn't seem like you were listening... I never ever flirt. Never. You mean to tell me you weren't a part of that orgy? I must be dumb and shit. Well, thanks for the fun quiz. I also am changing my tune on memes, just thought you should know.

Chuck Dawson said...

I think I got them all right.
Tell me what I won and I'll give you answers.

Brookelina said...

Bill - you made that up.

Egan - you are so dumb. And shit.

Chuck - your hair drives me wild.

Bill said...

No I didn't - they were a real band. Though maybe not since I tried to google them but couldn't find them anywhere.
