fun with drugs

I’ve been plagued with the cold-from-hell for over a week and strung out on so much cold medicine I could barely comprehend some of the comments you guys left on my last post. So, I’m sorry if I responded with something that made no sense. It was the drugs. The drugs, I tell you! I’ve been MIA but I’m starting to catch up with everyone’s blogs tonight finally!

fun-with-drugs-332x249

I don’t have the mental capacity to write today so I’m going to do something totally batshit crazy over here and respond to an award nomination I received. Sort of. I’m going to respond to Lady Dickson’s questions because she kicks ass but, instead of nominating people I’m just going to ask YOU guys a couple questions at the bottom so we can get to know each other a little better. We’re all friends here, right? Answer my damn questions then! (kidding, kidding.)

Lady Dickson’s questions for me:

  1. Where’s the farthest you’ve traveled from home? I don’t travel much so… the Caribbean? I’m boring. Someone come take me on vacation! 
  2. If you could have witnessed any major historical event, which would you choose? Is it sad I can’t think of anything? Most historical things that come to mind are tragedies… I think I’ll stick with the present.
  3. What is your go to conversation starter? I don’t have one as I try not to start conversations! The woe of a socially awkward crazy lady.
  4. Why did you start a blog? To meet and connect with people while doing something I love (writing)
  5. What is your favourite and least favourite word? Slice/Mortified (Not sure why it’s my favorite, but I sure say it a lot !)
  6. Have you ever been stung by a bee? Five too many times
  7. Who is your favourite comedian? Nick Swordson (A totally random but totally hilarious guy)
  8. Which cartoon character is your spirit animal? Garfield.garfield
  9. What movie have you walked out on/did you wish you walked out on? Anchorman. I walked out on it the first time I saw it. Then I watched it again at home a year later and loved it. Not sure what my deal was the first time around.
  10. How many cats is too many cats to own? Is this a joke? You can’t have too many cats…

Here are my questions for y’all: 

  1. If you could only eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be?
  2. Would you rather be forced to wear fish-scented deodorant all day, or pants made out of bologna? 
  3. If you could punch somebody you know in the face right now, who would it be and why? (Someone you know! I know everybody wants to punch Trump already lol)
  4.  Who is your favorite blogger and why? Share their link!

Answer some or all!

    1. Guacamole on Garden of Eatin’ blue corn tortilla chips.
    2. A question like this could turn a person into a nudist. Can’t do fish or bologna, I have too many dogs following me around already.
    3. The bagger at the grocery who puts exactly one frozen item in each bag, forcing me to play Where’s Waldo? with them before everything melts.
    4. Trek @ https://circumstance227.wordpress.com is honest, funny, and entirely relatable. Check her out!

  2. Tippy Gnu says:

    How miserable it is to have a bad cold. I hope you’ll feel better soon. I’ll answer question #2. I’d rather wear pants made of bologna. If I wore fish-scented deodorant, my wife would become suspicious of me.

  3. The EcoFeminist says:

    1) spaghetti carbonara (what is better than bacon, eggs, cheese, cream, and pasta?)
    2) i’d probably go for the fish deo and blame it on my dog, as my dog would eat my pants and that’d be awkward
    3) probably my brother for telling me the other day that my stepdad had just a couple days to live but of course sending this in an *email* after he had been in the same town as me for 3 days. what the fuck, people.
    4) yeah like there’s really just one! my two favorite green/garden/homesteader blogs are http://www.smallmeasure.com and http://www.gardenbetty.com; my two favorite funny gals are you and babyscienceproject.wordpress.com.

    🙂

  4. Oleander says:

    1. If you could only eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be? First of all, this is a cruel, cruel world you’re proposing. But, I think I’d choose potatoes. They are so versatile, I think I could keep it interesting.
    2. Would you rather be forced to wear fish-scented deodorant all day, or pants made out of bologna? Fish-scented deodorant. Bologna might fall off. And I can’t risk that. Plus, fish-scented deodorant would really ensure you know who your friends are.
    3. If you could punch somebody you know in the face right now, who would it be and why? I honestly can’t think of anyone to punch. Beside, it’d probably hurt my hand more then there face.
    4. Who is your favorite blogger and why? Share their link! I’m going to be totally self-serving here and call out Bacon as my favorite blogger. Although since we’re co-bloggers…it’s also my blog. But, we’ll pretend you didn’t notice that. We like to laugh. I need more light heartedness in each day. So, that’s why she’s my fave. https://baconandoleander.wordpress.com

  5. Otakraft says:

    1. If you could only eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be? Potatoes, mostly because I’m assuming I can put other things on them still and it means I still get variety while eating some pretty damn good for you food.
    Would you rather be forced to wear fish-scented deodorant all day, or pants made out of bologna? Fish-scented deodorant because the bologna pants would not only be really uncomfortable and gross, they would also start to smell suspect as the day wears on.
    If you could punch somebody you know in the face right now, who would it be and why? (Someone you know! I know everybody wants to punch Trump already lol) I don’t know, I don’t usually feel the need to punch people. I’m more about strangling generally.
    Who is your favorite blogger and why? Share their link! Hmmm, I don’t think I have a favorite blogger, but one of my favorite web comics is somethingpositive.net

  6. Lady Dickson says:

    If you could only eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be?
    SPAGHETTI OMG. I could eat spaghetti every single day.

    Would you rather be forced to wear fish-scented deodorant all day, or pants made out of bologna?
    Ugh, my only weakness, I HATE BOLOGNA. But smelling like fish…WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS TO ME. I think………..fish deodorant.

    If you could punch somebody you know in the face right now, who would it be and why? (Someone you know! I know everybody wants to punch Trump already lol)
    I have genuinely no need to punch anyone CURRENTLY. Ask me in like, 10 minutes.

  7. Lady Dickson says:

    I FORGOT TO SAY WHY SHE’S MY FAVOURITE BUT I THINK IT’LL BE OBVIOUS AFTER READING JUST ONE OF HER POSTS.

  8. samanthamurdochblog says:

    Overdose on vitamin C and zinc tablets – they help to boost the immune system… as for food item, I would have to say chocolate biscuits, not sure what bologna is, is it sausage? I would probably go for fish deoderant and have a massive herd of cats following me…can it only be one person I punch? I would have to line all the little s@#%ts that bullied my son at school one behind each other and hit VERY hard…favourite blog is tricky, I’ve got a few but today I was reading https://lilyandardbeg.wordpress.com and https://reflectionsonlifeandfood.wordpress.com and https://endsandbeginningsblog.wordpress.com
    They are all different, but all lovely… did I mention eucalyptus oil? Hope you feel better! 🙂

    • Blair (The Shameful Sheep) says:

      Thank you! I feel a lot better today, finally! Bologna is like an overly processed sandwich meat. Kind of like a flat hot dog. It’s pretty nasty really lol. Can I get in on the bully punching? Those kids deserve it. Not cool.

      • samanthamurdochblog says:

        Bologna sounds like a strange yet interesting taste sensation possibly to be avoided at all costs and yes, definitely , bring your best right hook!

  9. needhamb says:

    1-Chocolate 2-bologna pants 3-I don’t want to hurt my hand it hurts enough (I would be very upset if you punched Trump. He’s the only one that hasn’t lived off of me his whole life.) 4-Don’t have one.

  10. sherijkennedyriverside says:

    I saw your post notification in my email and rewarded myself by reading it as soon as I could fit it in at work. You did not disappoint me. Once again, best belly-laugh of the day…and I had a few today. Garfield as your spirit animal is simply priceless – I cried.
    1. Strangely, I picked green salad with blue cheese dressing to eat everyday. This is mostly strange because I rarely eat it, but faced with all else as an ‘only’ I knew I would crave greens and cheese. You may have changed my life…and hopefully my waistline!
    2. (Yes, I cried again, best question ever…) Hands down the bologna pants. I can’t stand fish smell and would die of exhaustion trying to run away from myself. Although knowing how easily bologna tears, it would certainly be a precarious life in bologna pants…but can’t do the fish – just ew…nope, not the fish.
    3. Hmmm, I’m not that hostile…who knew? I could give a good slap to one of the many parents at my Zumba class studio who stands idly by while their child blocks the only aisle in the place, or whose kid opens the glass door right into me without apology and then sqeezes in front of me and cuts me off as well. Even if they won’t respect their elders because their parents believe everyone is completely equal or something, it’s only common sense to let the person who was there first and trying to get out do that, and then enter into the massively crowded hall when they are out of your way. At least teach them to think if you won’t teach them respect. THWACK!
    4. Um…you’re there! 🙂 Current favorite is Shameful Sheep. And no, I’m not a brown-noser, I just like to laugh with heart.

  11. babbitman says:

    1 – Weetabix & fruity muesli cereal
    2 – How the hell do you wear a medium-sized Italian city? I don’t understand!
    3 – I’m not generally the punching type, but we’ve got a politician over here called Michael Gove who has a really punchable face. And that’s before he starts talking bollocks.
    4 – Ooh, many to pick from (including this lovely one) but the one I love to see popping up on my reader is by Dave Steele: https://logicalmisery.wordpress.com/ – infrequent entries but they are absolute gems when they appear. The last post covers the likely height of the mothers of Disney princesses using statistics. Geeky science & maths applied to inconsequential stuff – absolutely brilliant.

      • babbitman says:

        Apparently a metropolitan area of about 1 million people and the best place in Italy to live for quality of life. I get that Spaghetti Bolognese is named after the place but I’ve just read about Bologna sausage, so I guess that’s what you’re referring to?
        As another aside, in the UK “pants” tends to refer to underwear, so an even tougher choice. But I just couldn’t bear the stink of fish deodorant. So sausage on my sausage, thanks.

      • Blair (The Shameful Sheep) says:

        Ohhh Bolognese comes from there. It all makes sense now. Geography lesson of the day. I thought in UK underwear was called ‘knickers.’ What do y’all call pants? So many cultural mysteries going on in my mind.

      • babbitman says:

        Sometimes ‘knickers’ (women’s really) but normally ‘pants’ (short for underpants), or ‘undies’. The outerwear is almost always ‘trousers’ if you’re not specifying the type (jeans/chinos/leggings etc.).
        All very important to remember if you decide to tell a Brit that you “thought about wearing pants today and then decided not to”. Firstly, they will be incredibly embarrassed at such a personal revelation and secondly, think that you’re coming on to them in some weird way!

  12. Jessica Adam says:

    Oh no! I hope you’re on the mend. Cold medicines are yucky. I love that you asked your questions on your post. It’s a pretty cool way to check out new blogs. I’ve already seen some new ones I haven’t heard of.

    I laughed when I saw Garfield on your answers. Garfield is very popular at my house right now. In fact, our dog and cats are now being called Odie, Nermal, and Garfield. 🙂

    Here goes: 1. Ice cream. 2. I can’t wear deodorant, so I’m guessing I’d be pretty stylish in bologna pants! 3. I’m not a puncher, but I’d kind of like to pop my brother in the arm for all those times he did it to me! Ha! 4. I can’t pick one, you know me. I have that thing where I can’t leave anyone out! Which is funny because I was nominated for an award and I have no idea how I’m going to pull off fulfilling my end of picking my favorites… 🙂

  13. writerspilecki says:

    1. no idea
    2. fish
    3. my ex-roommate who stiffed my other roommate and me for $2000 and never came back. This was twenty years ago, so add up the interest.
    4. Mike Allegra at heylookawriterfellow. His sketches are cute and his stories are funny.

  14. Patt Staples says:

    1) I would eat chocolate for the rest of my life.
    2) I’d go for the bologna pants because then at the end of the day I could eat them.
    3) It’s safer not to say.
    4) janicemacleod.com. She’s living my dream life and also wrote Paris Letters.

  15. The Sons are FREE! says:

    1. Thai Basil Chicken
    2. Bologna pants (I once put a flounder under each arm and it was miserable, so I can only imagine how nasty fish-scented deodorant would be).
    3. Myself, because I’d know when it was coming and could duck. Or I could just man up, take one for the team and say “Thanks, I needed that!”
    4. Mark Landry over at Peacehacks.com. Just a down to earth guy with a flare for giving a wedgie to religious junk.

  16. Justice&Humanity says:

    Chocolate-covered raspberries. But eating one thing for the rest of my life sounds like nutritional waterboarding, you frigging sadist.
    2. Pants made of bologna. I wouldn’t want anyone thinking that fish smell was maybe coming from anywhere other than my armpits . . . hey, I keep a clean coochie.

    3. This guy on the train Friday afternoons when I take a slightly earlier train than my usual. He is always talking *really* loudly about politics and he tries to goad people who disagree with him. Obnoxious, and I would love to give his dentist something to fix.

    4. What are you doing: trolling for compliments or something? 🙂 I have about five or so favorite blogs, but I cannot decide who is my favorite. I don’t like choosing favorites. It reminds me of the popularity contests that were school elections and other types of elections and appointments to coveted positions at work. I like/love different blogs for different reasons, and one might be a favorite this week while another fabulous one takes the top spot the next week because of a particular post.

  17. Kooky Chic says:

    1. Without a doubt lemon tart
    2. Definitely bologna pants. If you went to an all girls school you would understand why.Phew
    3. The crazy lady who waits at the bottom of the steps making sure we have all picked up our dog pooh. I would like to punch her twice if not three times. My hand is actually tingling just at the thought,

  18. shenrydafrankmann says:

    Most of your blogs mortify me, but enjoy reading each slice of your life.

    1. Brussels sprouts with lots and lots and lots of butter. I would also be forced to wear Depends the rest of my life, butt it would be worth it.
    2. Bologna shorts because I would welcome the opportunity to tell everyone that I meet to eat my shorts.
    3. My former boss and his boss, whose mindless three year vendetta ended by firing me 6 months from my 25 year work anniversary and at the end of my third 13 hour work day in a row. I have punched them both, among other things, in my dreams many times. I would never actually do it if I saw them again.. I would walk away before giving them a real reason to hate me.
    4. I am my favorite blogger. I prefer to be honest. If you don’t like it, eat my bologna shorts.

  19. KatieComeBack says:

    Pizza. WHY IS THIS A QUESTION.

    Fish deo. I’ll blame it on the mercury in tuna. (“It’ll kill ya” won’t change any eating habits – just ask McDonald’s – but claim it makes you smell like beach sludge and NO ONE is buying it no mo.)

    I think I want to save my slug for the next person who comes to my peace party with a steaming deep-dish of asserole. It’ll probably be someone at the airport, to be honest.

    I heart PostSecret. It’s like eavesdropping on hundreds of little conversations….

  20. mahencha says:

    Through my Robitussin DM induced fog of madness, I will attempt to answer your questions four..
    1- Steak, very rare, with horseradish on the side
    2- fish scented deodorant, preferably tilapia scented (because tilapia smells how it tastes, like nothing) and not tuna or salmon
    3- This is sad and horrible, not in the least funny but.. there is a client where I work that hordes animals and never euthanizes, she just keeps them alive and suffering past when they would have died on their own. While I used to want to get her the help she so desperately needs but I am at the point where I want to punch her in the face several hundred times, then do it again. Turns out compassion and empathy has limits.
    4- https://23thorns.com/ he doesn’t post often enough though. He needs to post 3 times a day if he wants to keep me happy.

  21. Karina Pinella says:

    Great idea you have! Good to know you’re feeling better.

    1. If you could only eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be?
    2. Fish-scented deodorant all day ‘cuz I don’t want to smell like bologna down there.
    3. Any of the terrorist leaders.
    4. They are all great, so I can’t pick one. But, to fill the blank, I’ll put my link: http://www.karinapinella.com

  22. TheJMoShow says:

    If you could only eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be?
    Pizza or beer. Beer is food right?

    Would you rather be forced to wear fish-scented deodorant all day, or pants made out of bologna?
    Fish-scented deodorant please and thank you

    If you could punch somebody you know in the face right now, who would it be and why? (Someone you know! I know everybody wants to punch Trump already lol)
    Myself. Fight Club style

  23. spartacus2030 says:

    1) I would eat sweet potatoes because they’re the most nutricious vegetable, and they’re sweet! Am I allowed a glass of lard?
    2) I’ll take the fishy smell; people may mistake the smell for hot sex! Besides, it’s harder to get around when you know you’re full of balogna!
    3) I would punch my cat because he’s very annoying, has a tiny meow, and I keep hacking up fur balls!
    4) You! https://bhharned.wordpress.com/2016/04/19/fun-with-drugs/#comments

  24. sassandsauce says:

    Hey there.. Get well soon! I’m gonna do the same thing you did though. Gonna accept an award and just ask questions to my readers. It’s so so tedious to nominate bloggers !
    So here are your ansers –
    1. Sushi – These days I’m addicted!
    2. FIsh deo – I figure I might attract a few cats. How cool would it be to go around surrounded by a pack of kitties.
    3. I’d probably punch someone who tries to share my sushi. Grrrr..
    4. Too lazy to find the URL and copy-paste it. 😦 (WHich is why I keep putting off challenges)

  25. Kruti says:

    1. If you could only eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be?
    I would go for pizza! (Also assuming that in this hypothetical situation, pizza is beneficial for health)

    2. Would you rather be forced to wear fish-scented deodorant all day, or pants made out of bologna?
    Pants. No fish scented deo for me, thanks.

    3. If you could punch somebody you know in the face right now, who would it be and why?
    This is hard. I don’t really want to punch anyone in the face right now.

    4. Who is your favorite blogger and why? Share their link!
    I love Allie’s blog, Hyperbole And a Half http://hyperboleandahalf.blogspot.in/
    Her illustrations are hilarious and I really admire how she sheds light on depression, which is becoming a major problem, in a comic way.

  26. circumstance227 says:

    1. Cheetos, 2. the bologna pants, because the fish smell would ruin the Cheeto eating experience, 3. the inventor of bologna pants, 4. whichever one I am reading at the moment (see answer # 3).

  27. Dario says:

    Uh that’s fun 🙂

    1. Pizza. Then I’d weight 500 pounds but that’s fine because: pizza.
    2. Ugh. I’m a vegetarian so I have to go with stinking like fish.
    3. Tr…oh sorry. I would punch any world leader, because they’re miope to real problems.
    4. If you don’t know Tim Urban and Wait but Why, you’re in for a super-treat! http://www.waitbutwhy.com

  28. Eugene Knapik says:

    I’m not so good at doing what I’m told so I’m not going to answer your questions, not even for free bologna pants, but I think you gave me your cold through the internet common cold portal, and I’m just a little grumpy about it.

  29. momtheobscure says:

    If you could only eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be?
    Pizza
    Would you rather be forced to wear fish-scented deodorant all day, or pants made out of bologna?
    fish-scented deodorant, I’d most likely just eat the bologna pants event though it’s not one of my faves, but after only eating pizza I’d need some variety
    If you could punch somebody you know in the face right now, who would it be and why? (Someone you know! I know everybody wants to punch Trump already lol)
    Right now I’m calm, so I can’t think of anyone. I usually react in the moment – crime of passion.

    Besides you?

  30. piratepatty says:

    1. Potatoes 2. fish deodorant.I work from home! lol 3. My Father in law. Because he’s always saying Who’s your Daddy to me. Ewwww 4. Gary Mathews at skipahsrealm.com. He has my sarcastic sense of humor and he makes me laugh everyday!

  31. Ealachan says:

    1. Pizza. I’d probably die of esophageal cancer from the constant acid reflux I’d have, but I’m 70% sure it would be worth it.

    2. Oh, barf. Deodorant. The idea of bologna touching my skin for prolonged amounts of time skeeves me right out.

    3. I’m not a puncher, but if I had carte blanche and no worry of repercussions I’d sit my boss down and have a long, detailed chat about how he’s really leaving a lot to be desired on the leadership front.

    4. Jenny Lawson – Thebloggess.com. Because…duh.

  32. choosingmyperspective says:

    sorry you’ve been sick. I would have loved to read the drugged answers. Tells you so much about a person!
    1) potatoes or James’ fried cornbread
    3) neighbor who complained to the city the day I left the old toilet out by the side of my house while waiting for a dump run. I was charged for being a Public Nuisance, resulting in a $500 a day fine. I moved the broken toilet to the front yard, displayed prominently, and planted tons of flowers in the bowl and tank. Little table on the side with Home and Garden Digest magazines with articles about re-purposing old toilets. My punch landed with a satisfying crunch!!
    4) You or https://badfish2.wordpress.com/

  33. trulymebeingme says:

    1. If you could only eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be? Does an entire ethnic group count? I LOVE mexican food!

    2. Would you rather be forced to wear fish-scented deodorant all day, or pants made out of bologna? I would go with the fish scented deodorant. i would think the bologna pants would cause “issues” in your nether regions.

    3. If you could punch somebody you know in the face right now, who would it be and why? I would have to say my ex-husband. Except I don’t really want to punch him as much as use a taser on him…..repeatedly.

    4. Who is your favorite blogger and why? This one is hard. I read a few blogs and enjoy them for different reasons. But, if I had to just pick one it would be http://www.the7msnranch.com/ because I enjoy reading/watching her animals and her life with them.

  34. Sara McDaren says:

    1. The farthest I’ve been from home is Barthelona. 😉 For my honeymoon 18 1/2 years ago.
    2. I wish I’d been present for the Resurrection. I’d like for Jesus to have called my name after I mistook him for the gardener. That would be cool.
    3. Lately, my conversation starter has been, “Can you spot me on my last set? I’ll be quick, I promise.”
    4. I started a blog because I wanted to leave a comment on someone’s blog back in the day and couldn’t figure out how to do that without signing up for a blog of my own. I still find technocracy challenging.
    5. I think I like words too much to play favorites. I’ve read that some people dislike the word moist, but I think it’s a perfect descriptor of – well – a lot of things.
    6. We tried keeping bees last year but they all flew away. We do have some living in our chimney and they occasionally decide that my kitchen would be a cool place to hang out but I’ve only been stung a few times.
    7. I like that dead comedian – what’s his name. George Carlin.
    8. I totally relate to Mooch. http://www.mutts.com/strips-archive
    9. When I was a kid my mom took me and some of my friends to see The Dark Crystal, decided it was to occulty, so moved us next door to Best Friends and then covered our eyes and shooed us out during the shower scene.
    10. At one time we had ten cats. Some were fosters, some were ill, some died of old age. I’m very sensitive to smells and keeping up with all that work and keeping the smell to a minimum was difficult. We’re down to three. Three seems reasonable. So somewhere between three and ten.

  35. StarOfGrace says:

    1. If you could only eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be? Italian food. (is that a cheat?)
    2.Would you rather be forced to wear fish-scented deodorant all day, or pants made out of bologna? The pants since I can’t stand the smell of fish but I enjoy fishing. Go figure.
    3.If you could punch somebody you know in the face right now, who would it be and why? (Someone you know! I know everybody wants to punch Trump already lol) Any number of my co-workers. Especially today.
    4. Who is your favorite blogger and why? Share their link! I love Jenny Larson. She is a strong talented woman who doesn’t let anything stop her—for long. 🙂 Thebloggess.com

  36. headwindjournal says:

    1. Mexican food especially tostadas
    2. I would rather not wear either (see number 3)
    3. The person who forced me to wear fish deodorant or bologna pants
    4. I think all bloggers are brave and I love many. I enjoy Tim Lawrence, The Adversity Within and Humans of New York.

  37. sadiro2015 says:

    Lets see….I have so many favorite foods but a spicy goat dish called korma, I never get tired of. I would not like to wear either fish scented deodorant or Bologna pants, but if forced, I’d choose fish scented deodorant because the though of slimy, sticky Bologna pants makes me want to vomit. Who do I want to punch…I work for lawyers. I’m not going to answer that. And I’m too new at blogging to have a favorite yet, but I am enjoying your blogs immensely.
