Photo Personality Meme




So, because I have nothing better to do, I decided to follow in the steps of my friend, Cami, who just recently completed what I thought was a pretty cool photo personality meme.

Here are the instructions (lifted from Cami's blog with some alterations by me):

1. Type your answer to each of the questions below into Flickr Search. (This, I think ensures that the pictures will be less prosaic than those found through Google Image Search, which is my prefered image search.)

2. Use only the first page of results, and pick one image. If you want to avoid having to chose between pictures (and be boring), pick a number between one and twenty right now and always go with the resulting photo that falls at that number.

3. Copy and paste each of the URLs for the images into Big Huge Lab’s Mosaic Maker to create a mosaic of the picture answers.

The questions, of which I only answer a select few for clarity, leaving you to use that formidable intellect I know you possess:

1. What is your first name?

2. What is your favorite food?

3. What high school did you go to? "Las Lomas High School" returned only pictures of cheerleaders and basketball games, so I went with "Las Lomas."

4. What is your favorite color? Historically, I have always said "purple." I am finally admitting my previous naïveté concerning colors and answering this question ever more with "violet."

5. Who is your celebrity crush? I could have answered: "Jennifer Connelly."

6. What is your favorite drink?

7. What is your dream vacation?

8. What is your favorite dessert? Didn't see any with raisins. Sigh...

9. What did you want to be when you grow up? I actually read quite a bit about this career before chosing biology. The Manhattan Project was one of the more interesting subjects.

10. What do you love most in life? "Family" didn't really come up with anything, so I used "children."

11. What is one word that describes you? Ask my kids. I bet the most common word would be "funny." Hopefully they would mean it in a good way.

12. What is your flickr name? The mystery and riddle are in it. If you can guess that and the picture, you should be doing something more productive than sitting here reading this blog.

As did Cami, I invite anyone to give this meme a try. I certainly had fun with it.

Okay, for those of you who would otherwise be sore about it...

What a fun meme. I've seen this around, but I like how you collaged the pictures on top and then gave the answers on the bottom.

P.S. Jeff has loved your last few comments on my blog.

Interesting, although since it looksl ike it would take more than 30 seconds I will probably never do it. :)

Cami said...

Silly, NOTHING is better with raisins. Especially snickerdoodles.

A critique spoken by one who has obviously never experienced the fine taste of snickerdoodles with raisins.
