Because Sometimes, A Quiz Is Just the Thing

 

Today’s my birthday, and I’ve decided I’m going to give myself a little break from the intervention countdown. My husband told me I should think of some things I want to do today and do them, which seems like good advice. Fulfilling this instruction will almost certainly involve Indian food and a movie later, but right now, what I feel like doing is writing a quiz. And so, because nothing says “The news is wearing me out and I’m craving a time suck” like a long string of false dichotomies, I submit to you, dear Ricochetti,

Judith’s Birthday Quiz:

  1. Tea or coffee?
  2. Baseball or football?
  3. French or Californian?
  4. Marmalade or Marmite?
  5. Cheese or chocolate?
  6. Elvis Presley or Elvis Costello?
  7. Bath or shower?

  20. Go out or stay in?
  21. Beethoven or Barber?
  22. Comedy or drama?
  23. Foreign or domestic?
  24. Pastel or primary?
  25. Arena concert or after-hours jazz lounge?
  26. Beyonce or Ute Lemper?
  27. Play or watch?
  28. Scotch or Port?
  29. Morning jog or morning in bed with coffee and a crossword?
  30. Van Gogh or Vermeer?
  31. Wodehouse or Shakespeare?
  32. Holmes or House?
  33. Mystery or romance?
  34. Groucho or Pryor?
  35. Spielberg or Godard?
  36. Makeup or bareface?
  37. Bedhead or sleek blowout?
  38. Mountains or sand dunes?
  39. Econ or poli sci?
  40. ’68 ‘stang or ’67 E Type?
  41. Bone-dry martini or apple chocolate blueberry-tini?
  42. George Eliot or George Michael?
  43. Maillot or bikini?

  46. Retro or avant-garde?
  47. Hard copy or Kindle?
  48. Cooking in or dining out?
  49. Antarctic or desert island?
  50. Flying or driving?

Phew. I’m worn out now. Off to check movie schedules. (And that’s my last question: what should we see tonight?)

    48. Cooking in

    50. driving

    I have to admit, some of those choices came with qualifiers, for example “Port or Scotch” I sided with Port, but only if it was a vintage Port from a good year, and mainly because Port goes better with a fine cigar. The other hard choice was the 68 Mustang or the 67 E type Jag, I went with the Mustang because I know I can wrench on it a lot easier than the Jag.

    Happy Birthday!

    We have to know your taste in movies before we can make recommendations.  

    “Iron Man (3)” was bad, “Avengers” ok

    “Elyssium” was bad.  

    “Mud” was ok, maybe decent, but had holes.  

    “Star Trek” was lame…

    Interject Editorial Comments:

    1) the rut Hollywood is in now is pyrotechnics taking the place of…plot, character development, dialogue,….you name it, so don’t look for coherency in any way, shape or form.  (What are you looking at that sort of thing anyway?  You’re supposed to be looking at the pyrotechnics, rube!)

    2) HW prefers to lionize criminals and social deviants; their protagonists are invariably bank robbers, drug purveyors, contract killers, etc..  If this doesn’t presage the fall of Western Civilization, then I don’t know what would.

     “World War Z” while tense, had oh so predictable last third, though one scene in Israel was pretty cool, but then ruined with some inane, artificially manufactured crisis.

    “Pacific Rim” ok (but see EC1)

    “Jack Reacher” ok

    “MI” ok

    “Oblivion” ok

    Ah, what’s the point.  Nothing out there seems to earn higher than 7.0/10 rating.  Sorry.  Me, I’m waiting for the third Sherlock Holmes movie.  Please come out soon!

    I just loved The World’s End, from the makers of Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz. This time, a Body Snatchers type invasion is the backdrop for a group of friends dealing with (or refusing to) growing older.

    Judith,

    I too am a little worn out.  However, I am more than capable of generating my own false dichotomies though I appreciate the thought.

    What I would like to say is HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

    I have to admit, some of those choices came with qualifiers, for example “Port or Scotch” I sided with Port, but only if it was a vintage Port from a good year, and mainly because Port goes better with a fine cigar. The other hard choice was the 68 Mustang or the 67 E type Jag, I went with the Mustang because I know I can wrench on it a lot easier than the Jag.

    Happy Birthday! · 5 hours ago

    Actually, I had a ’67 E-type.  It was quite easy to work on, which was fortunate.

    Of course, Maggie Smith is always fun being Maggie Smith.
