Stolen from Brian at Christus Vincit - the BLOG!. This one is an official BMP original.
The object is to reveal your everyday terminology for everyday household items and what-not. You may answer with the choices given, or use your own. Remember: you're not limited to the choices given.
TAG! Any and all readers are considered IT.
1. That shiny metal stuff that you use to wrap food with:
A. Aluminum foil / B. Tin foil / C. Reynolds Wrap
I say A, and it's spelled aluminium. (You know, rhymes with gallium, indium, thallium ... Group 13 elements, people!)
2. That clear plastic stuff that is also used to wrap food with:
A. Plastic wrap / B. Saran wrap / C. Glad wrap
I say A.
3. Those things you use for facial and nasal care:
A. Tissues / B. Kleenex / C. Snot rags
Either A or B. I've never heard of C.
4. The stringy pasta that you eat with meatballs:
A. Spaghetti / B. P'sghetti / C. Noodles
B must be a regional thing as I've never heard it. If I use spaghetti noodles, then I will say A, although I've been known to use others, like linguini, fettucine, etc. Call it by its name, I'd say.
5. Those wooden sticks you see in a chips bag:
A. Pretzel / B. Prentzel / C. Sticks
Erm, I'd say A is the only name for those things. Most of my friends would want a good beer to go along with this (and not the watery stuff that passes for it, either.)
6. That mammoth trunked animal in the zoo:
A. Elephant / B. Elly-Phahnt / C. Wooly mammoth
That's easy. None of the above - this Winnie-the-Pooh fan likes to call them Heffalumps! :-)
7. The room in the house you have to use at least once a day:
A. The bathroom / B. The rest room / C. The little boys'/girls' room / D. The can
I use A. My Canadian friends call it the Washroom. My Filipino friends call it the CR (and there is a really cute story connected with this ... I will share it in another post, despite the fact that one of my uncles will probably kill me for telling! ;-) )
8. The paper you use after using the room described in question #7:
A. Toilet paper / B. Bath (or bathroom) tissue / C. Butt wipe
I use A. C is a little crude for my taste.
9. Your classification of a passenger van (full-sized or mini), besides van:
A. Car / B. Truck / C. Bus
Erm ... pardon? What else can it be classified? Sorry Brian. This was a silly question.
10. OK, finally, something relating to liturgical music - your classification of a Hammond organ:
A. Instrument / B. Appliance / C. Furniture
A Toaster Oven. Let's be specific here! If Randy had his way, it would also have a Chiffon Stop and do bagels. I say we add the cream cheese and the lox and make a party of it!
