        Are the red shoes a fetish?

      2. theonlycin says:

        No, simply a passion 🙂

      Thank you Sunshine, it was quite a happy day. May the coming week be kind to you.

  6. slpmartin says:

    I’m still amazed that anyone has the energy to answer so many question on a Sunday morning…all I want on Sunday morning is my coffee and the morning newspaper. 😉

    1. theonlycin says:

      I wake up so much earlier than my family, these quizes keep me from making a noise in the kitchen …

  7. nrhatch says:

    Loved your # 32.

    As a firm believer in screening calls, I would never think to interrupt one phone conversation to accept another . . . unless it was someone calling to offer me a paid blogging gig. 🙂

    If you get your Christmas Wish (#20) . . . send your gift giver round my way.

    Thanks for the laughs!!!

      I really dislike cell phones … the epitome of ‘necessary evil’ in my book…

  8. stilekke says:

    ….hello there…Ilove reading the answers to quizzes….and I fully intended to get in a lot of work today…right until about two this morning…..and then this morning happened…and I said to myself…Dewald old chap….you deserve a day off…and I listnened….and did nothing!!!!….just a lazy Sunday….you have a good week now…and take care Cindy…

    This Canadian really needs to respond to your #44, Cin. I would like to suggest a little better response – like “Yes, and while I found it painfully beautiful, it was a tad chillier than I prefer, Merlot doesn’t go with snow and there were no RED snowboots for me to wear.” Let’s get honest…red shoes and red wine on a sleigh? Don’t think so! 🙂

    On a more serious note: Morogo – We also have a wild plant in Canada that is like spinach, but supposedly even more nutritious. In Western Canada, it’s called Pig’s Weed (it grows prolifically in and around manure) and in Eastern Canada, it’s known as Lamb’s Quarters. I googled Morogo to see if there’s any resemblance. Here’s a challenge. I could not find even one photo of the morogo plant! Not even on Wiki or Scientific sites. It must come under the National Secrecy Act!

    1. theonlycin says:

      I’ll have to go on a hunt and take a pic, the only ones I find on the internet are of the cooked product!

  10. Wearing a WWE wrestler as a sports accessory. Now there’s an idea.

    1. gospelwriter says:

      Kate, you crack me up!

  11. gospelwriter says:

    Oh boy, does that salad look delicious! Could go for one right now.

    Re #39 – IMO, these quizzes push it a lot. I do enjoy reading others’ responses but don’t know if I’d have the patience (should I say, tolerance with duh questions?) to do one… Thought I might do the Proust Quiz (stole it from Dick Jones’ pages), but I’ve been sitting on it for near a month and still nothing. Mind you, I’m pretty busy this month, what with NaNoWriMo and other November projects.

  12. Naomi says:

    LOL!! Love your answers, Cin -and I’m with you on the naked boy who swims 😀

    1. theonlycin says:

      He’s very easy on the eye 😀

  13. You are the queen at this.

    I’d send protea too.

  14. ziibi says:

    This food looks so good. I will be stopping by here more often, 🙂 I saw your comment on Charles’s blog and thought to come and tell you I did post a video reading of Path of Wrath. It is on my blogger blog at
    🙂 River

      Thanks for the reading, River, I loved listening.
