the ultimate rule ought to be: if it sounds GOOD to you, it's bitchen; if it sounds BAD to YOU, it's shitty

I have filled out such quizzes before, but this one looks particularly creative and fun. I stole this from Sister Libby. Feel free to hijack it yourself.

IF YOU COULD HAVE ANYTHING DELIVERED TO YOUR DOORSTEP EACH MORNING, WHAT WOULD IT BE?
SUPPOSE THAT RIGHT NOW YOU COULD BE AT YOUR FAVORITE VACATION SPOT, READING YOUR FAVORITE BOOK, LISTENING TO YOUR FAVORITE CD, & EATING YOUR FAVORITE FOOD. WHAT WOULD BE YOUR CHOICES FOR THOSE 4 CATEGORIES, AND WHO, IF ANYONE, WOULD BE WITH YOU?
Well then I suppose you can find me in London, reading The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test by Tom Wolfe, while listening to Love's Forever Changes (though obviously I wouldn't read my favourite book and listen to my favourite album at the same time...they each need my full attention!) while eating Wheat Thins. And I'd have probably dragged Nicola and Shannon along with me.

WHICH ANIMATED CHARACTER IS YOUR ALL-TIME FAVORITE? The March Hare.
IF YOU HAD TO WRITE A BRIEF MESSAGE ON A DOLLAR BILL THAT MANY PEOPLE WOULD EVENTUALLY SEE AS THE CURRENCY CIRCULATES, WHAT MESSAGE WOULD YOU WRITE?
It could be worse and it will get better.
YOU'VE BEEN ASKED TO CREATE A BRAND NEW ROAD SIGN THAT WILL BE PUT UP ON THE STREETS THROUGHOUT YOUR TOWN. PEOPLE IN YOUR TOWN WILL BE EXPECTED TO OBEY IT JUST AS THEY WOULD ANY OTHER ROAD SIGN. WHAT WILL YOUR NEW SIGN COMMAND DRIVERS TO DO?
Banish baseless hate
IF YOU WERE LEFT ALONE FOR ONE HOUR WITH NOTHING MORE THAN A PEN AND A NOTEPAD, WHAT WOULD YOU BE INCLINED TO DRAW OR WRITE DURING THOSE 60 MINUTES?
I'd probably make lists, because that's what I love. Probably a list of what records I want to add to my collection.
IF YOU COULD WITNESS ANYTHING AT ALL IN SUPER-SLOW MOTION, WHAT WOULD YOU WANT TO SEE?
A girl in a really long, flowing dress dancing underwater.
SUPPOSE YOU'RE AT A PARTY WHERE YOU MEET AN ALERT & ASTUTE 100-YEAR-OLD PERSON. SINCE EVERYONE WANTS TO TALK TO THIS PERSON, YOU ONLY HAVE TIME TO ASK ONE QUESTION. WHAT WOULD YOU ASK?
"What do you think is the best age to die?"
IN ONE SENTENCE, WHAT DO YOU BELIEVE IS THE SECRET TO LIFE?
What makes people think life has a secret? It is what it is.
IF SOMEONE WERE LOOKING FOR YOU IN A BOOKSTORE, IN WHAT SECTION WOULD THEY BE MOST LIKELY TO FIND YOU?
The magazine section, reading celebrity gossip magazines but refusing to buy them.
OVER THE LAST 200 YEARS OR SO, THE WORLD HAS ADVANCED AND CHANGED IN MANY WAYS. NONETHELESS, CAN YOU THINK OF AT LEAST ONE ASPECT OF LIFE THAT HAS REMAINED VIRTUALLY UNCHANGED THROUGHOUT THE LAST 2 CENTURIES?
I think Sister Libby said it best: Human nature.
RANK THE 4 SEASONS IN ORDER FROM YOUR FAVE TO LEAST FAVE:
Winter, Fall, Summer, Spring
WHAT MONTH OF THE YEAR DOES YOUR NOSE ANTICIPATE MOST? WHY?
My nose is a fan of October...cool, crisp, burning leaves, etc.
WHAT IS SOMETHING YOU USED TO LOVE TO DO BUT HAVE OUTGROWN OR GOTTEN TIRED OF?
I used to be into acting, in local plays, etc. I had wanted to be an actress when I grew up but then I realized I wanted it for the wrong reasons. It wasn't acting I really enjoyed...I just wanted to be famous so I could answer interview questions. Yes, that's seriously why I wanted to be famous. And probably why I'm filling this out right now.
IF YOU WERE A FISH, WHAT BAIT WOULD SOMEONE USE TO CATCH YOU VERY QUICKLY?
I would go for some Wheat Thins, even knowing it would be my demise.
IF YOU WERE A TREE, WHAT WOULD BE YOUR FAVORITE MONTH OF THE YEAR?
If I was a tree, I'd want to be Spring, coming alive and all that, but from a looking-at-trees point of view, I definitely prefer Fall.
WHAT IS ONE EVENT THAT MANY PEOPLE CONSIDER ENTERTAINING THAT YOU PERSONALLY WOULD HAVE A VERY DIFFICULT TIME SITTING THROUGH FROM THE BEGINNING TO END? IF YOU WERE A CONTESTANT ON A TRIVIA-STYLE GAME SHOW, WHAT CATEGORY WOULD YOU MOST WANT TO SEE DISPLAYED WHEN IT CAME DOWN TO THE MILLION-DOLLAR QUESTION?
Michael Jackson. No, seriously. I'm an expert. His mother's maiden name is Scruse. It was originally spelled Screws, until her grandfather (and Michael's great-grandfather) changed the spelling.
WHAT IS SOMETHING YOU ENJOY DOING THAT WOULD PROBABLY SURPRISE MANY OF THE PEOPLE WHO THINK THEY KNOW YOU WELL?
Well, I think most people who know me well know this, but I do love children.
WHAT CREATURE, MORE THAN ANY OTHER, WOULD HAVE YOU SCARED STIFF IF IT WERE LOOSE IN YOUR HOME?
The Japanese Giant Hornet...or really, any from this list.
IF YOU COULD GREATLY ENHANCE ANY ONE OF YOUR 5 SENSES, WHICH ONE WOULD YOU CHOOSE? I'd enhance my sense of taste...think of how much more satisfying chocolate would be with supertaste.
IF YOU COULD TAKE ONE ETHNIC CUSTOM THAT IS POPULAR IN ANOTHER COUNTRY & POPULARIZE IT IN YOUR OWN CULTURE, WHICH WOULD YOU PICK?
I'd choose the less conservative attitude of Europeons. Towards drugs, nudity, etc. Their lives seem to be full of more beauty and appreciation than North American life.
WHEN YOU MEET SOMEONE FOR THE FIRST TIME, WHAT PARTICULAR FACET ABOUT THEM ARE YOU MOST INTERESTED IN LEARNING AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE?
What music they're into.
IF YOU CAME INTO ENOUGH MONEY THAT YOU NEVER HAD TO WORK ANOTHER DAY IN YOUR LIFE, WHAT DO YOU THINK YOU WOULD TYPICALLY DO TO STAY BUSY OR KEEP YOUR MIND OCCUPIED?
Whatever my damn self felt like.
IF ANY PARTICULAR MOMENT IN YOUR LIFE COULD HAVE LASTED 5 MINUTES LONGER, WHAT MOMENT WOULD YOU HAVE WANTED IT TO HAVE BEEN?
The moment were Arlo Guthrie put his arm around me.
IF A MOVIE WERE BEING MADE ABOUT YOUR LIFE, AND YOU COULD CHOOSE ANY ACTOR TO PLAY YOU IN THE FILM, WHOM WOULD YOU CHOOSE?
Alexa Chung. So I can pretend I'm gorgeous and British.
IF YOU WERE TO DIE TOMORROW, WHAT WOULD YOU WANT PEOPLE TO REMEMBER YOU FOR MOST OF ALL?
Little things that make me unique.
IF YOU COULD INSTANTLY FREE YOUR MIND FOREVER OF SOMETHING THAT CAUSES YOU STRESS IN LIFE, WHAT WORRY WOULD YOU GET RID OF?
Caring what other people think.
IF YOU HAD TO RENAME THE STREET YOU LIVE ON, WHAT WOULD YOU NAME IT?
This Way
IF YOU COULD HAVE BEEN THE REAL-LIFE OWNER OF ANY TV OR MOVIE ANIMAL, WHICH ONE WOULD YOU CHOOSE?
The March Hare would bring me endless amusement.
WHAT IS ONE THING YOU THOROUGHLY ENJOY THAT A LARGE PERCENTAGE OF PEOPLE WOULD PROBABLY CONSIDER TRITE & BORING AT BEST?
Bathing?
WHAT PARTICULAR FACIAL FEATURE OF YOURS DO YOU PERSONALLY ADMIRE MOST?
I have always been a fan of my hair. Well, not always. But since I got bangs.
LIST THE 5 THINGS THAT MAKE YOU HAPPIEST IN LIFE:
Music, friends, Wheat thins, Sherlock Holmes and moments of complete satisfaction
IF YOU COULD RECEIVE FREE, UNLIMITED AIRLINE FLIGHTS FROM YOUR NEAREST AIRPORT TO ANY ONE DESTINATION IN THE WORLD, TO WHAT PLACE WOULD YOU BE FREQUENTLY FLYING?
IF YOU HAD TO COME UP WITH SOMETHING THAT WOULD TAKE THE PLACE OF A WEDDING BAND TO SERVE AS AN OBJECT OF UNION & COMMITMENT FOR MARRIAGE, WHAT WOULD YOU CHOOSE?
A tattoo on the underside of your tongue of your partner's biggest fault.
SUPPOSE THAT INCOME TAXES STILL HAD TO BE PAID, BUT INSTEAD OF GOING TO THE GOVERNMENT, YOUR MONEY WOULD GO TO ANY ONE CAUSE OR CHARITY OF YOUR CHOICE. WHERE WOULD YOU WANT YOURS TO GO?
I'd donate mine to Children's International Summer Villages, an organization that has brought a lot of happiness to me personally and I know makes a difference to human beings around the world.
IF YOU COULD ELIMINATE ONE GENRE OF MUSIC, WHAT WOULD IT BE?
It's a tricky question, because music I might not like can inspire music I would like. But I sure would not be devastated if I never heard country music again for the rest of my life.
IF YOU COULD BECOME FULLY ENLIGHTENED INSTANTLY ON ANY ONE SUBJECT, WHAT WOULD YOU CHOOSE? I'd love to be a Sherlock Holmes expert. He's so intriguing.

I would have never pegged you as a child person. You never cease to entertain me. And that's a bummer about Jim Morrisons grave. I was thinking more of a "me sitting on a Jim Morrison statue's lap, while all is quiet in the graveyard" type scene.

Cate said...

these questions are so interesting and your answers are even more interesting. what i wanted to say:

Sunniva said...

great read, Molly, if you were an actress I'd definitely buy all the magazines and watch all the interviews on tv that you would be in !

funny thing is, I wanted to become an actress based on the exact same reasons..I was so serious on becoming an actress but just recently, I realized that I simply just can't act..bummer :p

molly said...

anonymous: thats sooo fantastic, im glad i have a fellow CISV-er reading! i'm not as active as id like to be, because the meetings arent actually in the town i live in, i have to go to the next one. still, i think CISV is just one of the most brilliant organizations and i love it.

So interesting, that is a fun one!

LBIC said...

Awe, cute read. I agree about the country music, though.

alexgirl said...

I love this post. I love finding out new things about people. The FRIENDS answer completely cracked me up.
And it makes me happy that you know so much about Michael Jackson. If I'm ever on Millionaire or Cash Cab (new york game show you may not have seen) and they ask a Michael Jackson question, I hope I can call you in as my lifeline!

jayne said...

ok i'm def jacking this survey! haha check out my blog next, but a lot of your answers were quite good actually- the human nature & european attitudes is so true! i love all of the wheat thins and sherlock references- but no arctic monkeys!? haha just kidding.

riz said...

Ha! Your semi-obsession with the March Hare is really amusing, and btw, love the nod to Barack in the sidebar!

Fashion Ivy said...

Cool quiz. Not so sure about the tat on tongue tho

jess said...

Jen (MahaloFashion) said...

Interesting first question
so many answers
I don't know roses? Money? free prizes? Food?

Belle said...

These questions are a lot better then the normal ones, and I love your answers. You would find me reading magazines in a bookstore to and not buying them. I also read magazines from the grocery store while shopping for food, I have gotten many bruises from carts that way.

Carolina Lange said...

I love this quiz! Very fun!

maya said...

I'm using this survey to restart the bloggy blog. Hope you don't mind.

maya said...

Also everytime you mention London/ Europe in this I actually feel as if you are complimenting me, which may sound extremely patheic but makes me very, very happy.
