11 Things Blog Meme


11,000,000 freaking annoying Liebsters!

"My Seven Links" now "Eleven Things" Notice the numbers? Numerology again.

The Eleven Things chain was answered and sort of semi-mangled on this blog, it wasn't followed to the letter, and she said she'd done the first couple of steps but had no intention of carrying out the rest, and I say good job there! I also like what she said about the Da Vinci Code. That book, along with others I won't mention in this chain-mangle, are in some ways, worse than Twilight. Twilight sends a really bad message to young girls and its popularity is rather confounding. But the one thing it has going for it is that it clearly represents itself for what it is, fiction. It doesn't masquerade as truth like the Da Vinci code and other anti-Christian and pro-left-wing agenda books do.

Now, to the mangle of the eleven Things blog chain. The questions vary from blog to blog because the meme tells you not only to answer questions from the blogger who 'tagged' you, but to make up your own questions and send them on 'tag' 11 other bloggers.

So I have a feeling I'll be mangling various versions of the Eleven Things for some time.

* * *

😏Meme: Rules

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Here we go again.

😏Meme: You must post the rules.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Well, to make a mangle, it is a good idea so people know exactly what's in the chain getting mangled. But nothing dire will happen to me if I don't post the rules, which, I will break along with this chain.

😏Meme: Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post and then create eleven new questions to ask the people you’ve tagged.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: No guarantee you'll get much from my sass answers, and I didn't get tagged with this thing yet, thank goodness, I saw it on a blog. I did not and will not tag anyone, much less 11 people with any chain post.

😏Meme: Tag eleven people and link to them on your post.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Nope. The linkage is a lot of bother, and I do not tag anyone for chain posts, which I mangle rather than perpetuate anyway. If I decide to tag anyone at all, there would be a good reason for it, something to do with them personally and not a viral scheme.

😏Meme: Let them know you’ve tagged them.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Isn't that a bit redundant? The whole tagging business, well, it sends notifies to the taggees, I presume… Oh well, no matter, nothing doing.

😏Meme: What’s the most played song on your iPod? (or CD collection if you’re old school)

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: It all depends on the mood I'm in.

😏Meme: What do you miss most about your childhood?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: I have fond memories from childhood, but am enjoying the rights and freedoms and work and pay I get from being an adult, and the accomplishments I've achieved so far to miss anything about my childhood. Wouldn't go back to being a child again for the world.

😏Meme: What is your favorite poem?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: None.

😏Meme: Without thinking too much, what are 5 of your favorite books of all time? (Just list them as they come to you … don’t think!!!!!)

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Besides the fact I can't pick just five, every book I like is a favourite for different reasons, I'll save that info for an actual conversation instead of put it into an answer on a blog chain.

😏Meme: What was the last book you read? Tell me about it in 5 words or less.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: In five words: - a book I started and finished.

😏Meme: Can you define irony and give an example?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: This blog meme chain telling people to be creative in the sense that they are told to make up their own 11 questions after answering those of the previous 'tagger' and how likely it is for many bloggers to come up with at least some or the very same questions as other bloggers not associated with them. This is because no matter how much a meme tries to look like real interaction and creativity, it can't escape its own nature.

😏Meme: If you were forced to change your name, what would you change it to?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: *Shudder* Ugh! No, not that, I mean, I wouldn't change my name to Ugh! That was just a reaction to the idea. The answer depends on the circumstances. For instance, if I was going into witness protection and had to change my identity, I could still use a name I liked, unless they arbitrarily assign them to you, I'm not exactly sure how it goes. If I was becoming a citizen of a different nation where I would have to pick a name to go along with it (you know how immigrants in the past sometimes did this( I would have to pick a name from that nationality I liked, if there were any. If not, probably I would be assigned one, and if I didn't like it, man would that stink!

So, I have no idea what I'd change my name to if I was forced to do it.

😏Meme: What author/TV show/movie/book/celebrity, do you have absolutely despise and avoid at all costs?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Oh, heck, too many to mention. Off limits anyway for this meme-mangle.

😏Meme: What movie was actually better than the book is was based on?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Meh. whenever this book VS. movie thing comes up in any discussion, I tend to lose interest, fast.

😏Meme: Beatles or the Stones?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Depends on the song.

😏Meme: What is your favorite quote?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Meh. I find people quoting quotes in silliness and FB statuses to be really tiresome.

* * *

😏Meme: 1. What is your favorite piece of art?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Meh. Not an art collector.

😏Meme: 2. What literary character do you think would make an awesome world leader?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Haven't given it any thought. Neither have the characters I write/rp.

😏Meme: 3. What color do you think should be outlawed from clothing?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Don't…Care…Don't…Care…Don't…Care………….

😏Meme: 4. Hats. Yes or no?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Don't give a hoot, everybody's entitled to their own preference.

😏Meme: 5. What contemporary novel should be added to the high school curriculum?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Not the Hunger Games, Twilight or Harry Potter. Whatever else that isn't so annoying trendy and is actually good. Is there such thing? A lot of books are utter crap.

😏Meme: 6. What book featuring real people do you think could work if the characters were switched to animals?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Bleck, that's just anthropomorphically weird. I can think of people in human history who acted like animals but, switching them to animals in books about them - nope, that sucks. Interestingly enough, a blogger who answered this set of questions forgot about the "real" part and put Twilight and Hunger Games! Uh, those aren't real people…

😏Meme: 7. Genetically designed humans. Hell yes or absolutely not?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: !!!!!!!!!!!! What kind of a warped mind comes up with this stuff?

😏Meme: 8. What book would you like to see get parodied a la Pride and Prejudice and Zombies?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Any book I don't like because I think it's ridiculous along with some of its extreme fans.

😏Meme: 9. What book would you absolutely hate to see get parodied?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Any book I love.

😏Meme: 10. TV. Awesome source of entertainment or horrifying time suck?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Depends on what's on. I don't like wasting time watching some show hoping it'll be good, only for it to suck all the way through or at the very end.

😏Meme: 11. What literary character should immediately jump off the page and into your bed?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Ewww! I'm not a Senna Marie Mary Sue!" I do not disrespect even fictional characters that way!

* * *

Chain" 1. What’s your go-to, pumps you up every time, workout song?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Argh! I wish I could tell you I don't have one. So listen for yourself.

😏Meme: 2. Cat or dog?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Erm, I have a preference, but several factors prevent me from getting either one. Oh, and BTW, dogs and cats aren't the only pets people can have.

😏Meme: 3. Team Jacob or Team Edward?


😏Meme: 4. Beer, wine or mixed drink, and what’s your favorite?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Bleck, none of them.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: *Eyebrows raised* What the…? You actually said "lucky undies" ??? Are - you - SERIOUS!? Don't tell me some people actually have a pair they consider a good luck charm! Now I've heard it all! *caught between laughing and rolling her eyes* Oh, and I don't believe in lucky charms, of any kind and I don't race unless I'm actually in a hurry about something. So it has nothing to do with sport.

😏Meme: 6. What’s your favorite iPhone or Android app and why should I download it (if it’s iPhone)?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Meh, any apps I might use are for different things so I wouldn't likely have an overall favourite. And why you should download something? That's your call, not mine.

😏Meme: 7. Have you always had the same career and was it what you originally studied?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Okay, I'm going to have to give you a flat - none of your business…

😏Meme: 8. Have you ever run in a costume and what was it?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Huh? Run - in a costume? Why would i ever need to do a thing like that?

😏Meme: 9. Who would play you in a movie about your life, and who would play your significant other?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: You assume way too much. you don't even know if I have a significant other or not. And I have no idea who would play me in a movie, though it would be interesting to find out.

😏Meme: 10. Do you have a nickname, and if yes, what is it?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: It's on my posts.

😏Meme: 11. If you could eat only one food for the rest of your life, what would it be?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Bleck, I'd get utterly sick of even my most favourite food if I had to do that, so, off the wall question, no conclusive answer.

* * *

😏Meme: A Game Of Tag

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Bleck, no! I honestly don't give a crap.

😏Meme: 7. If you could be famous for anything, what would you want that to be?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Not so sure fame would be for me. With the upsides always come the downsides too. But it would be something really worth while, like this. and the various performances of the music featured throughout. I would love to play that piece so well.

😏Meme: 8. Who is that one person from your past you would most like to connect with but you either don’t remember his/her last name, don’t know her married name or just can’t find on any searches?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: It isn't you.

😏Meme: 9. Who is at the top of your “list?” You know, the one you’re allowed to stray from the marriage for.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: What the…? First, I'm not married, and if I was, neither I or spouse would be allowed to stray for ANYONE!

😏Meme: 10. What’s your preference: Phone call, text or email?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Nevermind, I'm not interested in communicating with a meme-originator.

😏Meme: 11. Do you have a new/newer/newish laptop that you just have no need for and you want to send to a family who currently has only one working computer, and it’s a work computer and really isn’t supposed to be used for anything but work but is currently being used for this blog right this very second?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: No, you can't have my computer.

😏Meme: 1. What is your favorite color, and what do you think it would taste like?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: The first part of this question has been asked so many times on other memes. But the second part, that's a new one. Well, take one of my favourite flavours for dessert and you'd pretty much get what my favourite color would taste like.

😏Meme: 2. Do you sleep on your left side, right side, back or stomach?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: That can depend on where I'm sleeping, but I presume all of the above. Everybody changes positions in their sleep, don't they?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Huh? Ewww. No. I assume everybody's do…

😏Meme: 8. Do you have any Ben & Jerry’s ice cream in your freezer? May I have it?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Agh, again: I - Do - Not - Have - Any - Kids!

😏Meme: 9. Epidural or au naturel?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: You assume WAY too much. Who said I was pregnant or getting pregnant? It ain't happening, people.

😏Meme: 4. Fill in the blank: When I was 13, I got in big trouble when my parents caught me ____________________________________.

😏Meme: 5. On a cross-country road trip, who are the three people you’d want with you, living, dead or fictional?

* * *

😏Meme: 1. What’s your superpower?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: I'm content with the one I have.

😏Meme: 2. If a genie were to grant you three wishes, what would your three wishes be?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Besides that all chain letters would come to a screeching dead end, my wishes are way too vast and too deep even for a genie to manage.

😏Meme: 3. What's in your purse? G'head. I'll wait while you empty it out and catalogue the contents.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Nothing. I'm not a purse person. I'll use a small one sometimes when necessary, but...

😏Meme: 4. What book are you dying to read (or, if you're more of a movie person, what movie are you dying to see)?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: I wouldn't go quite that far. I mean, there are books and movies I'm curious about, but dying to read/watch, nah. They're not going to vanish out of the world if I don't pick 'em up or download 'em tomorrow.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: You'd have to figure those out for yourself if you got to know me.

😏Meme: 6. If you could trade places with someone for a week, who would it be and why?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: I'm not sure I'd want to do that. Too many daunting variables and potential for things to end up not so great. I mean, you trade places with someone you admire, then that very week, some crazed fan tries to assault or kill you - or if that doesn't happen, maybe someone decides to take you to court over something your fans aren't yet aware of is going on. And if none of that happens and everything goes more than swimmingly for you as the person you admire, when the week is up, what happens? You go back to being just you. Meh.

😏Meme: 7. What is your favourite song?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: That all depends. I have a favourite song for when my favourite hockey team wins, a favourite song for when I feel mad enough to want to punch a wall, a favourite for being down in the dumps, and lots of favourites just for listening any old time.

😏Meme: 8. What's the best title for your biography or autobiography?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: I never gave that any thought.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: It's hard to say. if that ever happens, I'll make those decisions then.

😏Meme: 10. Your worst day ever?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Uh-uh, not going there. And there are several kinds of worst days that are hard to tell which was the worst of them all.

😏Meme: 11. Did you resolve to do anything differently this year? How's that going?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: you mean like in New Year's resolutions? Nah, I don't believe in that.

* * *

😏Meme: 1. What is your motto in life?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: I haven't given it any thought.

😏Meme: 10. How do you feel most loved?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Too many instances to list.

😏Meme: 11. When was the last time you did something for the first time?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: I don't keep track. I'm always learning new music, which means attempting to play a tune for the first time and there's just no keeping track.

* * *

😏Meme: 1. How many states have you lived in? How many have you visited?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: You have no idea, let's keep it that way.

😏Meme: 2. If you had to change careers tomorrow, what new job would you want to do?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Something I liked and could do well, or learn to do well.

😏Meme: 3. What physical attribute do you love most about yourself?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Are you kidding? I don't even think about that.

😏Meme: 4. If you could get paid to do anything in the world without worrying about being realistic, what would you do?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: mangling chain letters. Yeah, I'd love getting paid for this.

😏Meme: 5. You can only live one place for the rest of your life and it can’t be anywhere you’ve lived before. Where would it be?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Since I don't have to make such a big decision, I'm not going to bother trying to speculate. It would take a lot longer than a day figuring that out if it actually happened, so…

😏Meme: 6. If you were a celebrity, what would you be famous for?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Probably telling tabloid reporters, directors who tried talking me into nudity scenes, and organizations trying to get me to hop on their bandwagons, to go fly a kite.

😏Meme: 7. If you got to be on any game show you wanted, which one would it be?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: The only one I watch.

😏Meme: 8. If you could name yourself, what name would you chose?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Uh-uh… You're not getting that out of me.

😏Meme: 10. Roller blades or skates?

😏Meme: 1. What movie can you watch over and over again, no matter how many times you’ve seen it?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Doesn't matter since you won't be watching it with me.

😏Meme: 2. What’s your favorite band right now?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: I don't roll that way. I like various music, as long as the song is pleasing to me and it's done well, what care I who performed it?

😏Meme: 3. If someone made a movie of your life, who would you want to play you?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Asked in another mutation of this meme on another blog, answered somewhere else in this mangle…

😏Meme: 4. One food you wouldn’t eat as a kid that you love now?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: There actually is such a food in my case, but you're not going to eat it with me, or cook it for me, neither will I cook it for you, so it doesn't matter what it is.

😏Meme: 5. Last book you read?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: *Yawn* Didn't I already - oh, whatever, skip it.

😏Meme: 6. What is your favorite memory from high school?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: I don't know and I'm not going to wrack my brain over it.

😏Meme: 8. Scariest movie you’ve ever seen?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: A movie that wasn't actually scary at all but for this freaky music/sound effect they kept using.

😏Meme: 9. What song is stuck in your head right now?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Listen for yourself if you're really curious.

😏Meme: 10. Quirkiest thing about you that most people don’t know – go!

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Um, does mangling blog memes count?

😏Meme: 11. What do you love about yourself?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Eh? How the heck does one answer this?

😏Meme: 11 questions for you:

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Argh!

😏Meme: 1. How did you meet your significant other? Juicy details, please!

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Nothing here… No really. Believe it or not, some of us just aren't into the romance thing.

😏Meme: 2. Where’s the last place you went for vacation?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: If you're fishing for recommendations on places to go, ask somebody who's travelled extensively.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Somewhere on every continent except Antarctica of course…

😏Meme: 4. What’s your favorite spice?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Depends on what it's being put into.

😏Meme: 5. You have a surprise day off , how are you spending it?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: How would i know? You can't plan a surprise day off ahead.

😏Meme: 6. What is one thing you refuse to eat, no matter how much someone offered to pay you?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: There are a few things that fit the bill here and I can't pick just one.

😏Meme: 7. Have you always lived where you are currently living?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Okay, that's getting too nosey.

😏Meme: 8. What was your biggest cooking/baking flop?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Roflol! Nevermind, you weren't there.

😏Meme: 9. Name a dish you’ve had at a restaurant that you’ve been able to successfully recreate at home.

😏Meme: 11. What’s the gutsiest thing you’ve ever done?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Can't exactly pick one since there have been several things.

😏Meme: Tag, you’re it!

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Argh! It's not tag, it's a chain letter, not the same thing at all!

* * *

😏Meme: 1. Do you blog for business or pleasure? Tell us more.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: I blog when I have something to say that doesn't really fit anywhere else.

😏Meme: 2. What's your favorite post (on your own blog), and why?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Eh, not that into myself. But because of the subject matter I find it necessary to provide the link to some posts more than others.

😏Meme: 3. You're stranded on a desert island.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: *Yawn* This again. Not that I've seen it a lot in this particular blog meme, but it is a cliche question that's often used here and there.

😏Meme: What five items washed ashore with you to decorate your newfound home?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Meh. Next?

😏Meme: 4. If your blog had a soundtrack, what would it be?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Different music to suit different entries. A musical blog would be cool.

😏Meme: 5. If you could have dinner with any designer or blogger (living or dead), who would it be?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: I haven't the foggiest…

😏Meme: 6. What is the first major design decision you made?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Meh.. Not even close to applicable.

😏Meme: 7. What is the craziest color you ever painted anything?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Meh… The last time I painted anything was back in grade school and I really don't remember what colors I used. The usual, I guess.

😏Meme: 8. Do you remember paint color (or nail polish, lipstick, etc.) names? Share one off the top of your head, and what kind of color it was. Or let us guess.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: No.

😏Meme: 9. What is your biggest design or DIY fail?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: I blog when I feel like it. end of story.

😏Meme: 2. Is blogging your day job, just a hobby or an off-shoot of your "real" job (which is what)?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Just a blog, and if you knew me well, you'd know what kind of work I do.

😏Meme: 3. If you could pick one room in your house to have decorated by a famous designer, which room would you choose and why?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: I'm not all that fussy and don't know any famous designers.

😏Meme: 4. Which famous decorator would you choose to re-do your room (#3) and why?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: See above.

😏Meme: 5. What are your favorite type of posts to write (DIY, sharing new finds, inspiration pics, etc.)?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: I dunno, I just write.

😏Meme: 6. What have you learned/what have you gained from blogging?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf:Learned some stuff from the odd link included in an entry, expressing myself etc, ya know, that kinda thing.

😏Meme: 7. For someone just starting out in the blogging world, what advice would you give?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Don't participate in any blog meme chains like 11 things, my 7 links, and for the love of interest, never graciously accept and "nominate/tag" anyone else with any of those horrid so-called http://Chainmanglers.pbworks.com/So+Called+Blog+Awards+Are+Just+Chain+Letters!

😏Meme: 8. What is your biggest decorating pet peeve?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Meh, don't care.

😏Meme: 9. What is a little-known fact about you that your readers would be surprised to learn?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Since I don't know what people have already figured out/learned about me, I don't know what about me would surprise them.

😏Meme: 10. Who do you most admire in the blogging world and why?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Meh, even if I did, I'm not falling into this trap, sounds too much like one of these "Must share and make your friends feel great with this chain letter!" questions.

😏Meme: 11. What is a trend you still love (even if it's overdone, you just can't help yourself)?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: None - this is pretty much why I dislike trends for the most part, and that includes especially memes. So, instead of doing what everyone else does by nicely answering and maybe inwardly cringing at the "tagging" obligation stuff, I'm going to toss all phoney nicety out the window and mangle these chains.

* * *

😏Meme: 1. When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up? What did you think you would become?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: I had no clear idea but didn't think I'd become what I am now, which, BTW, I'm very happy to be.

😏Meme: 2. Who is your biggest celebrity crush?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: What are you kidding me? I haven't had a crush on any celebrity since I was in grade school. I'm just not a fangirl, you know…

😏Meme: 3. Angels, Bigfoots, or Aliens; which one do you think is most likely to exist?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Well I'm a Christian so that should give you a huge hint.

😏Meme: 4. What is something that everybody seems to enjoy that you hate?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Blog memes.

😏Meme: 5. If you opened your front door and I was there, what would you say? What would you really be thinking?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: That depends on who you are and what if anything you're trying to sell. I might give you a polite "Sorry, I can't give anything." or a rough "I don't support the likes of you now stop wasting my time!" *slam*

😏Meme: 6. What is your favorite movie and why?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: I have a few favourites I like because of their plots, the characters, the humor, the music etc.

😏Meme: 7. There has to be something that you believe you’re the best at, what is it?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: This.

😏Meme: 8. Who is the ugliest person you know and why are they so ugly?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Look, I don't judge people in terms of "ugly" and "pretty/beautiful/hot", you shallow-minded drip.

😏Meme: 9. Is love unconditional?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Under normal circumstances, yes. But there are things people can do that will cause me to stop loving them. Bullying, sadism, racism, sexism etc. I cannot love a sadist whether it's a physical one or just an emotional/psychological manipulative head-gaming sort.

😏Meme: 10. Lots of people have addictions. What is yours?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Not sure I'd call my extreme likes 'addictions' but if you knew me well, you'd know what they are, or at least one or two of them.

😏Meme: 11. What is the nicest compliment you have ever received? What is something that you would like to be complimented more about you?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Well I don't wish people would compliment me *more* but I do appreciate the unexpected pleasant surprise when it happens. It's considered kind of a bonus life hands you every so often. I've received some pretty neat compliments occasionally and they're all encouraging in various things. I get more satisfaction out of a job well done than anything else.

* * *

😏Meme: 1.) What is your favorite quote?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Meh, bleck. I don't have any, and get pretty irritated with people splattering supposedly famous quotes all over the net. if I want to read that stuff I'll go to a library, thanks.

😏Meme: 2.) What is your first memory?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Nothing specific.

😏Meme: 3.) If you could have any dish cooked by anyone in the world (living or dead), what would you have and who would prepare it for you?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: I just had a funny idea, but since there is absolutely no way it could ever happen, never mind.

😏Meme: 4.) What languages do you speak? What language would you most like to learn?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Obviously English. Not sure which others I'd like to learn, it would be neat to be able to speak them all. Oh, well.

😏Meme: 5.) Do you have any pet peeves? What are they?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Chain letters, including these blog memes!

😏Meme: 6.) Name one thing you like about yourself.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Uh, eh? Nah.

😏Meme: 7.) If I handed you $1000 (American) right now, how would you spend it? No fair saving it!

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: I dunno. I'd have to save it for a while until something I really wanted came along.

😏Meme: 8.) What is your favorite song?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Expect this question on every survey meme.

😏Meme: 9.) Do you play any musical instruments?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: This has already been covered.

😏Meme: 10.) What is your favorite piece of poetry?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Meh. I appreciate a good lot of poetry, but not enough to be that into it, you know.

😏Meme: 11.) Name your favorite season and why.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: if you hung around me long enough, you'd get an idea.

😏Meme: 1. Thinking of your most recent vacation, where did you go and what did you do that was most memorable?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: had a good time somewhere at some point in time.

😏Meme: 2. What celebrity are you most often told you look like?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Hah! That's a hot one! *Scoffing*

😏Meme: 3. What is your greatest fear?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Asked, asked, and will remain unanswered.

😏Meme: 4. Have you ever won a contest of any kind?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Hasn't everyone at some point if they've lived long enough to reach adulthood?

😏Meme: 5. Can you remember the first time you saved money/allowance as a child for something special and what you spent it on?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: heck no.

😏Meme: 6. What was the last movie you watched?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: I'm sure that was asked and answered already.

😏Meme: 7. What book are you reading now?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: asked and answered.

😏Meme: 8. What do you miss most about being a child?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Asked and answered.

😏Meme: 9. Tell a story that your family/in-laws/partner love to tease you about.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: My "Irish Temper" it also comes in handy for mangling particularly manipulative and bullying, dishonest, vile, evil, odious, stupid chain letters. I wouldn't have mentioned it otherwise, but since there's a good connection…

😏Meme: 10. If you could have any superpower, what would it be and why?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: This would scare the heck out of most people probably. Change people's personalities and minds - not for sinister purposes though. You wouldn't want that sort of power going to the wrong person, but even in the hands of the right person it would be more than unsettling. Why would I want it? To make people stop being cruel, shallow, perverse, stop lying, cheating, and of course, stop starting and spreading chain letters. :p Well, you asked.

😏Meme: 11. What was your favorite sitcom growing up?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: One I never see any more.

* * *

😏Meme: 1. There are $3 cupcakes in the supermarket but you have everything to make them at home. What do you do?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Depends on the situation. I mean, if I really want a cupcake right here, right now, and am having an insanely busy day, so, no time for baking, and don't wanna mess up my kitchen and be bothered with cleanup etc. I'll buy 'em. On the other hand, if I'm at home and I have scads of time on my hands, and a hankering for cupcakes and all the fixings for them, and don't mind the chore of cleaning up stuff that day, then I'll make 'em. Besides, with store-bought you don't get to eat some of the batter, which is pretty much worth all the extra time and clean-up etc. But a lot would depend on time and where I am.

😏Meme: 2. How many pairs of jeans do you own?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Enough to do me very nicely, thank you.

😏Meme: 3. Can you pass up a sale?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: That all depends on what items are included and if I need/want any of them. If not, then no problem at all.

😏Meme: 4. When is the last time you stood up for a stranger?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf:I honestly don't recall. I'm the type to stand up for anybody I perceive as getting bullied/harassed. But there hasn't exactly been any sort of drama involving strangers that I can recall lately.

😏Meme: 5. What is your pet peeve?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Again!? Okay, read this: CHAIN LETTERS! And seeing so many people replicating them because they were taken in! People who start chain letters go beyond pet peeve, though!

😏Meme: 6. What is your favourite quote and what does it mean to you?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Asked - and - answered, blah, blah, blah… Next?

😏Meme: 7. Have you ever had a speeding ticket? Did you try to shamelessly get out of it?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Uh, no… *Rolling eyes*

😏Meme: 8. What fashion DON’Ts did you participate in and STILL secretly love?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: There's no such thing.

😏Meme: 9. How many keys are on your key ring?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Which one? Aw, never mind.

😏Meme: 10. Why do you blog?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Didn't I sort of answer this one already?

😏Meme: 11. What is your sign and do you fit it’s description?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: ROTFLOL! If you knew me well enough, you'd know, and probably get a kick out of it like I do. Sometimes these things fit and other times they are WAY off!

* * *

This blog mutation is the same meme but the questions didn't go all the way up to 11.

😏Meme: 1. Have you ever been ripped off and for how much?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: None of your business.

😏Meme: 2. Do you have pets? Are they awesome?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: If you knew me…

😏Meme: 3. What is the air-speed velocity of an unladen swallow?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Wow, I remember this from Morph Vox. And no, I couldn't tell you the answer. Apparently according to the blogger who answered this chain, it's also a Monty Python joke.

😏Meme: 4. Why are most children’s musicians terrible?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Oh c'mon, you want me to answer such a subjective question? what if I disagree with your opinion?

😏Meme: 5. What’s the most offensive thing about the $5 bill?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Huh!? You're losing it, pal! You've gone off the rails and off the deep end. Get yourself some help before you hurt somebody!

😏Meme: 6. Prior to Jeremy Lin’s current basketball greatness, he was staying on his brother’s couch because he didn’t have a definitive contract with the New York Knicks. Was the couch long enough to fit an out-stretched Jeremy Lin?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: How would I know? Why would I care? Why do you?

😏Meme: 7. What’s the least you’ve purchased with $100?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: What kind of dimwitted question is that? Even if I understood what you meant and had an answer for you, I wouldn't tell you, because, as said in the very first answer, none of your business.

😏Meme: 8. What’s a reasonable amount of money to spend at a strip club?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: *Disgusted expression* Absolutely nothing!

😏Meme: 9. Is an iPad worth it?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Depends on who you ask. If you're asking me, well…If you knew me, you'd know my opinion.

😏Meme: 1.. Would you rather be 8 feet tall and 100 pounds or 2 feet tall and 800 pounds?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: would you rather be a log or a boulder? Yeah, stupid question.

😏Meme: 2. Pick one: Canada, United States, Mexico. Explain why it is superior to the other two.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: I don't have to, and even if I did, none of your business.

😏Meme: 3. What is the best type of Personal Finance Writer? (Think of writer archetypes – Investor, Debt Blogger, Wild-card, Contrarian…)

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Huh? Where did this come from?

😏Meme: 4. What’s your favorite dinosaur?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Meh.

😏Meme: 5. Paper or Plastic?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: For what? Sandwich bags? Lighting a fire? Computer keyboard? What?

😏Meme: 6. If you had to pick, would you consider yourself a dog-person or a cat-person?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: I have a definite answer to that, but not even sure you'd know it if you knew me well.

😏Meme: 7. What would you do with an extra $100,000?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: well, since I don't have an extra hundred thousand and wouldn't tell you how I'd spend it if I did…

😏Meme: 8. What’s the best thing you ever purchased?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Like I could actually categorize things that way… I've had a lot of bests and a few not-so-bests when it comes to purchases throughout my life, so…

😏Meme: 9. Would you rather lose your phone or the internet for a week?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Neither. What if someone from work sent me an important email? What if I had an emergency at home?

😏Meme: 1. Your next international trip will be paid for (standard, non-luxury accommodations.) One country only. Where do you go?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: No such plans, no need to even speculate.

😏Meme: 2. Which will happen first: Dow 11,000, or Dow 15,000? Okay, Dow 10,000 or Dow 16,000?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: What do you think I am, psychic? I don't know and I don't care.

😏Meme: 3. Oxford comma: yes, or no?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Well, since i don't live anywhere near it and am ot looking to change careers… But really, it's up to you whether or not you go there.

😏Meme: 4. Isn’t it time we stopped minting pennies?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Isn't it time people stopped spreading blog memes?

😏Meme: 5. Can you teach people to change their financial habits, or is it like asking them to change their eye color?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Dunno. I've never tried it.

😏Meme: 6. Have you ever bought 89-octane gas? If so, why?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Ridiculous question not even remotely applicable to me.

😏Meme: 7. Which is the best national park in the system?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Dunno. Haven't been to every one to form an opinion. Even if I had, I would've found something special about every one, and maybe something lousy about each too. who knows? who cares?

😏Meme: 8. Do women seriously not care about looks?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Um excuse me - HEL-LO!? If you read any of my other chain-mangles, including those where both me and Beth mangled superficial, shallow-minded chain letters that went on about appearances, you'd know the answer to that one!

😏Meme: 9. Have you ever bought an IPO? If so, why?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Don't get your hopes up, I'm not buying one from you.

😏Meme: White grits or yellow?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: If that's a round about way of asking where I'm located, you can forget it.

* * *

😏Meme: 1.) What was the first story you ever wrote? Spare no embarrassing details.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: It wasn't a chain-mangle. Likely something in school that I've forgotten, and by my standards now, best forgotten...

😏Meme: 2.) What’s your favorite nonfiction topic to read about?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Meh, I got a few, not going into them here.

😏Meme: 3.) How much research do you feel like you need to do before you start a new story?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: That all depends on the subject matter and how much I already know about it or don't know about it, you get the idea.

😏Meme: 4.) Writing challenges (ala Nanowrimo) – useful, or merely stress-inducing?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Stress. I prefer to write on my own time, in my own way, with no limits on time, number of words, pages, you get the idea.

😏Meme: 5.) Why do you write your main genre?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Because I wouldn't be me if I didn't.

😏Meme: 6.) What genre/author/book do you secretly love but would never admit to in polite conversation?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: There's no such animal - er - literature…

😏Meme: 7.) What’s your favorite movie-adaptation of a book?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Dunno, actually.

😏Meme: 8.) What is your favorite type of cephalopod?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Huh? A sudden burst of randomness there. Why should I have a favourite cephalopod?

😏Meme: 9.) What is your writing tool of choice?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: What - you're seriously asking me this? Does this mangle look like it was written with a typewriter or fountain pen to you?

😏Meme: 10.) What are your feelings about the proper usage of whom?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Huh? I don't have "feelings" about it at all.

😏Meme: 11.) What are you doing to bring yourself closer to your writing goals?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Nothing specific since I don't exactly have writing goals. I have other things that need to get done, where I have a definite goal, but writing is for fun and to express stuff and mangle chain letters.

* * *

😏Meme: 1. What snack (if any) do your prefer when writing?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Whatever's readily available that I like.

😏Meme: 2. What is your next major writing goal?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: It's the same as always.

😏Meme: 3. How would you feel about your book being made into a movie?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Very cool as long as it followed the book to a tee. No taking liberties with the characters or else don't make it at all.

😏Meme: 4. What is your dream writing space?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Eh? I don't get this one.

😏Meme: 5. Where do you go to scope out ideas for characters and dialogue?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Nowhere. That stuff comes to me unexpectedly.

😏Meme: 6. What are you doing to become a better writer?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Reading.

😏Meme: 7. Do you outline before you start a novel?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Well it isn't exactly a novel, it's ongoing stories, and no outlining, just write when I have the time and the mind to.

😏Meme: 8. What was the last book you read?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Meh, I count online reading instead as reading, and the last thing I read, is this chain, since it's necessary to read it to mangle it.

😏Meme: 9. What is your biggest distraction when you write and how do you deal with it?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Writer's block or anything/anybody needing my attention for whatever reason. How do I deal? Well, depends on the distraction.

😏Meme: 10. What is your favorite sentence you have ever written?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Huh? Why? I mean, really? I don't even have favourite quotations from other people so am certainly not going to pick something from my own writing.

😏Meme: 11. What should the title of my YA paranormal romance be?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: I couldn't care less.

😏Meme: 1) What is your favorite color, and why?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Again? Sheesh. sked so many times in chain letter surveys, and answered.

😏Meme: 2) How many hearts have you broken in the course of your cold, heartless life?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Probably none. :P

😏Meme: 3) What is your favorite vacation spot, and why isn’t it the Poconos?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: *Makes horrible face* Poconos, really? That reminds me of somebody and their weird ideas and characters on a listserve I used to be part of, so, no thanks. As for favourite vacation spot, asked and answered before already.

😏Meme: 4) Do you buy lottery tickets? Explain the reasoning behind this choice.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Meh, same reason I don't participate in penny auctions. I don't like risking a very high chance of throwing money away.

😏Meme: 5) What is the next book you want to read, and why, if it isn’t mine, isn’t it mine????

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Hahaha. I have no idea.

😏Meme: 6) Favorite grade in school? (Year, not letter grade – no bragging, smarty pants!)

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Favorite grade - are you kidding me? I don't know. I was glad to graduate.

😏Meme: 7) What is the best dream you remember having?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: A few of them, and I'm not going into detail now. Just too long, and, heck, that wouldn't be mangling this chain would it?

😏Meme: 8) When in Rome, how do you act? If you’ve never been to Rome, how would you act? Penalty for going with the obvious answer.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: what kind of penalty? Are you going to force me into gladiator combat? Heh, didn't think so.

😏Meme: Extreme penalty.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: My question still stands, apparently.

😏Meme: 9) What are: your first pet’s name, your mother’s maiden name, and the last four digits of your social security number? If it helps you remember, you may provide the entire social security number.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Hah, forget it!

😏Meme: 10) What is your earliest memory of music?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: I can't and wouldn't give you any specific first memory of music but I have quite a lot of pleasant ones from when I was little.

😏Meme: 11) Why?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Why what?

* * *

😏Meme: rules {because there is always rules}:
1. post these rules
2. post a photo of yourself & eleven random facts about you
3. answer the questions given to you in the tagger's post
4. create eleven new questions and tag new people to answer them
5. go to their blog and let them know they have been tagged

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Forget it. I'm not doing any of that, especially not attaching my pic.

😏Meme: 1. guiltiest tv pleasure?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Nothing.

😏Meme: 2. what is the strangest word/term anyone has used to land on your blog?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Nothing.

😏Meme: 3. one word to describe the teenage you?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: younger… Duh.

😏Meme: 4. while were talking about the teenage you, who was your celeb crush back then?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Actually that was back before my teens, but I'm still not telling you. I mean, what would it matter in the grand scheme of things? You'll survive.

😏Meme: 5. what would you rather have... a chef? maid? or babysitter?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Neither.

😏Meme: 6. do you have a bucket list? if so, whats one thing on it?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: I don't believe in that. Besides, I already mangled a meme concerning one of those on the page with the collection of never-ending random survey memes sort of like this one.

😏Meme: 7. a genie has granted you two extra hours each day. what will you do?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Wow! First time i've heard of a genie who can modify time! What an interesting idea for a fictional character, thanks!

😏Meme: 8. that genie sticks around... one wish. what is it?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: i'd think that time thing would tire the genie out, so I wouldn't stick him/her with a wish yet too. Hanging around to be my friend is good enough, let her/him sleep, and then grant me a wish when he/she's refreshed. But my wishes are far too vast and profound, not to be confused with little desires and wants most people think of.

😏Meme: 9. are you a talk on the phone or text message type of gal?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Well since nobody calls unless they're either annoying telemarketers or just want something or to talk to someone else. So neither.

😏Meme: 10. ten years from now... where are you?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: *Yawn* Blah blah blah, this again. Asked and answered. Expect this sort of question to be in the majority of these memes.

😏Meme: 1- If you could live anywhere where would it be?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Asked and answered. Asked and answered already…

😏Meme: 2- You can only wear one kind of shoes for the rest of your life... what kind would it be?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Comfortable ones of course. But since that will never happen, I won't even bother to speculate. No matter what kinds of shoes I get in the future, they'll have to be comfortable.

😏Meme: 3- Something you do daily, that you'd rather not do?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Erm…Never you mind.

😏Meme: 4- What sites do you visit daily on line?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: My own. It seems there's always something that needs editions and additions.

😏Meme: 5- Where is the "dumping zone," in your house?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Trash can, recycle bin - where else should it be?

😏Meme: 6- Favorite thing to make in the kitchen?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Food and drink, what else?

😏Meme: 7- Do you hope to make your blog a business?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Hah! I'd love it if I got paid for mangling memes, but that isn't likely!

😏Meme: 8- What are you afraid of?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Quit trying. you'll never get an answer.

😏Meme: 9- How do you feel about toilet seat covers?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Huh? Why should I feel anything at all about them?

😏Meme: 10- What do you do to stay fit?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Meh…

😏Meme: 11- Would you get plastic surgery? Where?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf:Bleh. I don't have a problem with the way I look.

* * *

😏Meme: 1. What color(s) would you paint your bedroom, if it’s not already the color you want?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: None of your business. Besides, you'll never set foot in it.

😏Meme: 2. What’s the one thing you’re wanting/waiting/saving up to buy right now that you really want?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: I haven't made a decision yet.

😏Meme: 3. If you could start a business, what would it be?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Didn't I mention already about wanting to be paid for mangling memes? Think I did already. More than once.

😏Meme: 4. Favorite classic video game (PRE-Playstation/N64 era)?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Sorry, not applicable.

😏Meme: 5. What’s your dream car?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Not applicable.

😏Meme: 6. Favorite website (besides any social media site like Tumblr or Facebook)?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: I guess that also discounts MTM since that, too, is a social network. Well then, probably my fiction writing site, which is also part of MTM, I just need to get everything uploaded.

😏Meme: 7. Are you proud of yourself?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: For what? Well, sometimes I am, and sometimes I'm not. It all depends on how well I succeed or how miserably I fail at various things.

😏Meme: 8. What’s “wrong” with your body, clinically speaking (poor vision, high blood pressure, etc.)?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Um excuse me - that's none of your business.

😏Meme: 9. If you could steal a road sign to put up in your room, what would it be?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: It wouldn't… because I wouldn't do such a moronic thing. Wasn't this covered somewhere in that other pile of random survey memes?

😏Meme: 10. Last game you played?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Huh? You're seriously asking me to remember that?


🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: A lot of them are pretty neat.

😏Meme: 1.) Where the hell is your left hand at the moment?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Since I'm using it to type along with my right hand, there's your answer. Duh.

😏Meme: 2.) What’s your zodiac? Do you believe it suits you?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Roflol! Um, well, some people think it suits me, but I'm not telling you what it is. :p

😏Meme: 3.) What’s the last television show you watched?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: As of this writing - nah, I won't tell you that either…

😏Meme: 4.) Who would you want to go out on a date on (historical, dead, fictional, and celebrity persons included)?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Meh. Really, I just don't crush on people. Now if it was worded differently, as in, which of those I'd like to go out for coffee/lunch/dinner with, or heck, even shopping with, the list would be pretty long.

😏Meme: 5.) Do you believe in urban legends? If so, what’re some of your favorites?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Lolololol Bwahahahahahahahaha! You're asking a meme-mangler this! No, I don't believe in them, but they are good inspiration for creative writing, especially when I can manage to make fun of them in the project and foist them on characters I dislike. *Wicked grin*

😏Meme: 6.) In what way has someone disrespected you in the past?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Ahem that's a bit personal isn't it?

😏Meme: 7.) What does your week ahead look like? Are you stressed?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Not stressed. It's going to be a good week.

😏Meme: 8.) Boom! You just got hit by lightning. What happens next?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: I'd be burning in agony, or else instantly killed. Gah, let's not think about that. *Shudder*

😏Meme: 9.) If you woke up in the middle of the desert with nothing on but what you went to sleep in, what would you do?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Since I'd likely be bewildered and having no idea where I was or what to do about it, why would I have any idea about it now?

😏Meme: 10.) What songs do you usually sing to yourself? Come on, everyone does it.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Several that are on my Ipod.

😏Meme: 11.) You just won the ultimate getaway—to anywhere, fictional or otherwise. Where’re you off to? Andwillyoubringmebackasouvenir?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Do you expect me to pick just one out of all the fictional settings I've ever read about? How about a round trip taking them all in?

* * *

😏Meme: 1. Any siblings? If so, what are your thoughts on them/relationship with them. If not, would you like any?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: If you knew me well enough, you'd know.

😏Meme: 2. What jobs would you really like, or which have you previously considered?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: I like my work.

😏Meme: 3. Do you have a significant other? If so, tell me about them! If not tell me about who you’re interested in, or who your ideal partner would be. (If none of the above apply don’t answer.)

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Meh. if you knew me well, you'd know.

😏Meme: 4. If you were chosen to go on a pioneering space voyage that would mean you never returned to Earth, would you go?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: of course not! I don't even like situations here on earth that lock me into things so that I can't get out of them. Besides, I have people and things here I cherish and love far too much to abandon, forever, in some foolish quest for adventure or glory.

😏Meme: 5. Tell me a fact about your family home! (A story or something you like/dislike or sth idk)

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: I grew up there…

😏Meme: 6. Do you think your zodiac description is in any way accurate?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Um, asked in previous mutation just above, and answered.

😏Meme: 7. What will you spend the longest doing before going out? (Hair, clothes, make-up, resisting the urge to vomit, etc.)

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Well if I felt like I would vomit, I would be in no condition to go anywhere. I don't waste much time getting ready, I am quick about everything that way. I'm going to work, or shopping, or out on some other errand, or out to eat or to a birthday party, stuff like that, I'm not trying to get on the cover of any magazine, or looking to dazzle and date somebody.

😏Meme: 8. What did you do last summer?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf:A lot of what I intend to do this coming summer, only this year, I want to get more of it in.

😏Meme: 9. Something you’re looking forward to:

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: I'm the kind of person who's almost constantly looking forward to something, in either the very near or the more distant future.

😏Meme: 10. What is the likelihood of all of you actually answering these?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: "all of you"? There's only one me.

😏Meme: 1. What’s your favorite song/poem and why?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Um okay… The music is featured throughout this section. It should be clear why it's significant.

It isn't one of those dreadful songfics. It was already worked out toward the ending I wanted when I happened on this piece of music, which I began to study. What an unbelievable coincidence. That music could be featured as incidental/background if the story was ever made into a movie, and that is highly unlikely.

😏Meme: 2. What is your dream location to live? And if you don’t have one what places would you like to live?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf:I really don't think about stuff like that.

😏Meme: 3. Do you think those talking muffins commercial that Pam has are as creepy as I do?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Creepy? Try annoying. Food doesn't talk, it gets eaten. I also get seriously irritated at those Swiffer commercials where they have dust, dirt and mud looking for "love" or some lady talks to her vacuum cleaner, either to fire him as a sloppy employee, or dump him as a bad relationship. C'mon, people, it's an appliance!

😏Meme: 4. Is there a word you are absolutely disgusted by? Like for example the word placenta is really gross to me because I watched my cat eat hers and it was grody.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Well, that's nature. It's not always pretty, but I'd rather see a cat eat a placenta than watch a pack of dogs pin down and rip into their prey while it's still alive and kicking.

As for words that disgust me, there are several, all evocative of things that are gag-inducing, horrifying, etc.

😏Meme: 5. Favorite super/hero/anti-hero/villain? And why are they your favorite?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: A Gift For Santa has some, plus our original characters.

😏Meme: 6. Do you have an entertaining/funny/tragic anecdote? If so share if you’re willing to.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Nah.

😏Meme: 7. Do you like people touching your feet/lower legs?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Only when it's necessary. if I injure my leg, it will have to be treated, and n order for that to happen, there will be some touch involved.

😏Meme: 8. Do you write at all? Like fanfiction, poetry, essays, a journal… stuff like that.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Didn't I just show you some of that?

😏Meme: 9. Do you have any pets? If so tell me about them. If not what pet(s) would you like to have? If none why not?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: I will always have pets. They do me a lot of good, and if I get a particularly well behaved one that can go places with me, it can help me try to brighten up other people's lives for a moment or two. I've had several kinds of pets and would love to have even more different species of animals.

😏Meme: 10. What’s your favorite legend/folk tale/fairy tale?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: It's hard to decide, they all have interesting plots, and I've cherished them since I was little.

😏Meme: 11. What’s your favorite Harry Potter character and why? If you aren’t an HP fan then what’s your favorite fictional character and why?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Bleck, I'm so done with Harry Potter.

Otherwise, well, I answered this in the above somewhere.

😏Meme: 1. Favourite type of cheese?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: That all depends on what it's in/on. Cream cheese belongs in cheese cake and other cheeses belong on pizza, hot dogs, lasagna, casseroles, etc.

😏Meme: 2. Tell me about one of your favourite headcanons?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: ? Um… Not sure what you mean by that. If you mean what's my favourite movie/TV show/book, I can't pick just one.

😏Meme: 3. What’s a talent you’ve always wanted to learn?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Don't you mean 'skill'? You have a talent for learning skills, whether it's music or sports etc.

😏Meme: 4. Do any smells remind you of certain memories or people?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Definitely, but I can't recall anything specific right now.

😏Meme: 5. Is there something you should be doing right now instead of answering these questions? (*Guilty*)

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Nah, since I'm taking a break from what I need to work on, and during this break, I might as well mangle more mutations of this chain.

😏Meme: 6. How would you describe your favourite chair?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Comfortable.

😏Meme: 7. Are there any languages you’d really like to learn?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: I'd like to know them all, but that's impossible.

😏Meme: 8. People like to ask questions such as, “How is your heart doing?” I’d rather ask, “How are your elbows doing?”

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Haha! Got lots of elbow grease here.


🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: No, I haven't the foggiest idea.

😏Meme: 10. Have you ever pulled a prank on someone?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Yes, when I was younger, and one good one on April Fools in 2011. April 1 is the only day I do anything like that any more.

😏Meme: 11. Draw a picture of a cat. It’s not a question. Do it. =P

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Uh, no.

* * *

😏Meme: 1. Do you believe in love?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Duh, of course. I mean, if you don't love your family and friends, visa versa, what's the point to living around people?

😏Meme: 2. What’s your favorite movie?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Asked and answered many times in these memes.

😏Meme: 3. What is the most embarrassing thing that has ever happened to you?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Try as many times as you like, it's still and always will be none of your business.

😏Meme:4. What makes you happy?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: All kinds of things, including seeing other people mangle chain letters with class.

😏Meme: 5. Your earliest memory?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Asked and answered…

😏Meme: 6. The things you dislike most about being a girl?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Absolutely nothing. What's there to like or dislike about being either gender? I was born a girl, it is part of who I am, it's a big part of what makes me me.

😏Meme: 7. What was your favorite summer and why?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: I don't have a favourite year, a favourite season, favourite month, week, day, hour, minute, or second of my life. There are lots of favourite and not so favourite times and there will be more to come as I continue living.

😏Meme: 8. Where’s the most amazing place you’ve traveled?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Wherever I travel, if and when I do, has its own unique amazingness…

😏Meme: 9. The wildest thing you’ve done?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: You would've had to be there to see it. Nothing naughty or rebellious, just looked a little gutsy.

😏Meme: 10. The story of your first kiss?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Eww, bleck, that would be none. And, none of your business anyway.

😏Meme: 11. What is something you want to do but you’re too afraid to?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Well, if I said "nothing" that would sound like I wanted to do nothing and was afraid of that which isn't true, but there is nothing I want to do that I'm afraid of, because if I'm afraid to do something, chances are I'm not going to be wanting to do it.

😏Meme: 1. If you could replay a moment in your life over and over again what would it be?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Too many to count.

😏Meme: 2. Favorite book? (Any recommendations?)

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Asked and answered…

😏Meme: 3. Favorite TV show?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: *Sigh* See above.

😏Meme: 4. What’s your dream date?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Bleh. Not into that, and anyway, none of your business if I was.

😏Meme: 5. Favorite tumblr?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: *Rolling eyes* Oh, my, gosh - this particular set of qs coming from a Tumblr blog. Talk about heaping on the praise obligations.

😏Meme: 6. If you had 3 wishes what would they be?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Never mind, you can't grant them anyway.

😏Meme: 7. If you could be anywhere right now, where would you be?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: *Yawn* Asked and answered…

😏Meme: 8. Biggest pet peeve?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Chain letters junking up the net, and getting ranted about in ways that make the people sounding off look just as bad or worse than the chain letters themselves. Besides that one, well, hard to pick one, there are a few annoyances in life.

😏Meme: 9. Favorite part about summer?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Just about everything except the bugs.

😏Meme: 10. First thing you notice about the opposite sex?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: that they ARE the opposite sex.

😏Meme: 11. First thing you thought about this morning?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Are you kidding me? How would I remember something like that unless awakened in a way as to make me think something really specific?

* * *

😏Meme: 1. What products do you have in your shower?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Shoe polish, sunscreen, mittens, a parka and several pairs of shorts.

No, duh, regular things you'd find in any shower, know, shampoo, soap etc.

Well, ask a stupid question…

😏Meme: 2. What one frivolous (not essential to survival) thing would you want with you on a desert island?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: *Sigh* not with that stranded on an island thing again. I don't know and I don't care.

😏Meme: 3. What's your favorite throw-together meal?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Depends on what's available.

😏Meme: 4. If you could only visit one restaurant for the rest of your life, which would it be?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Since that will never really happen, I won't bother wracking my brain to come up with an answer. Couldn't just pick one anyway. I mean, I basically answered that about the one food you could eat for the rest of your life.

😏Meme: 5. What color is your favorite pair of shoes?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: I don't have a favourite pair,and which ones I choose depends on the time of year and what kind of function or outing I'm on.

😏Meme: 6. Dogs or cats? (Or, "other"?)

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Asked and answered.

😏Meme: 7. Describe a moment, however brief, in the past week when you felt joyful.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Tempted as I am to do that, it wouldn't be mangling this chain, now would it?

😏Meme: 8. You have an entire day off from responsibilities, but you can't spend any money. What does your free dream day look like?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Full of things I like to do best.

😏Meme: 9. If you had $1 million to give to charity, what cause would you give it to?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: I couldn't pick one, but it would have to be legit and something about advancement of human rights and combatting some horrible disease other than the usual that everybody's already giving to.

😏Meme: 10. What is a picture that you wish you had? Either a moment in time that wasn't captured, a picture of a person passed or a place in the world? Anything you would like an image of.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: There is none.

😏Meme: 11. Would you rather have a blanket made of the softest material imaginable with a stone bed or a rough, scratchy blanket with a gloriously soft and cushy bed?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: There is a way around the uncomfortable bed. You could wrap yourself up in the blanket instead of just covering with it.

* * *

😏Meme: 1. If you owned a time machine (or perhaps your own TARDIS), what time period and location would you travel to first?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf:I don't know. It would probably depend on what movie or story I was watching/reading.

😏Meme: 2. Do you have any guilty pleasures?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf:Other than mangling chain letters, no? and chain-mangling is not really a guilty pleasure, it's just that some people, family and good friends etc. who are indifferent to or don't mind, even like at least some virals, really don't understand me. So I don't feel free to share much with them as far as chain-mangling goes.

😏Meme: 3. If you could commit a crime without getting caught, what crime would you commit and why?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Eh? I'd rather have the means to stop criminals.

😏Meme: 4. Name an animal, domestic or otherwise, that you’d like to have as your pet.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: I have a list about a mile long. I have a favourite but if it didn't work out, and/or any of the others were available instead, I sure as heck wouldn't turn them down.

😏Meme: 5. What is your dream job?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Heh, couldn't decide.

😏Meme: 6. Do you have a Bucket List? If so, what are some of the things on it?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: *wince* When I first came across that term, I didn't get what it meant, and laughed at it. No, I never have and probably never will have one of those.

😏Meme: 7. If you could have anyone, including celebrities/fictional characters/people from history, as your significant other, who would you choose?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: No one. I'm happy being Miss Ocean Elf. Now, there are scads of characters and famous people I'd love to be friends or at least acquaintances with if it was possible.

😏Meme: 8. What are some of your hobbies?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: mangling chain letters. Woops, that isn't just a hobby, it's a mission. Music. Woops, that's not only a hobby, it's my work. Internet. Oops, that also ties in with my mission and since I put some of my piano playing on Youtube, it ties in with my work as well. Okay, well then, just other stuff.

😏Meme: 9. If you could be apart of any fictional universe, which one would you choose?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Well, there is really only one universe, but if I could be in any fictional setting, hmmm. That's a hard one, I think I'd rather my favourite characters came to visit me.

😏Meme: 10. Do you play any instruments? If so, which one(s) do you play? If not, have you ever thought about playing an instrument?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Asked and answered.

😏Meme: 11. What is your favorite color?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: *Yawn* Asked and answered.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

😏Meme: 1. Do you like butts

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Huh!? Why? *Scratches head*

😏Meme: 2. What is going on

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Nothing, so I'm using this spare time to mangle this chain.

😏Meme: 3. I dont like asking questions, do you?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: I never thought about it.

😏Meme: 4. I mean I just don’t ever know what to say thats all.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: You don't have to, though, at least, not to perpetuate a meme.

😏Meme: 5. Like c’mon

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Exactly.

😏Meme: 6. I am sure these will be fun to answer

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Since some of them aren't questions, sure.

😏Meme: 7. What are your thoughts on the Rectumsempra curse?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: The - what ? Um, I think you meant Sectum Sempra curse? Harry Potter, bleb. I am so done with it.

😏Meme: 8. Someone just threw a projectile with a mass of 50kg at you with a speed of 100ms-1! How much force will you need to make it come to a stop the moment you catch it?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: I'd have no idea because then I would be dead and unable to catch it. There are some fictional chain creeps you could hurl it at instead, that would be a lot more useful.


🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Ahem *Scowl*

😏Meme: 9. bacon

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Shut up, I'm hungry.

😏Meme: 10. It wasnt that difficult, that question. I mean Newtons third law right there, If you have the same amount of force pushing back on the projectile it should amount to 0 because of the equal and opposite force canceling them both out.
F= 50x100
F= 5000N
Somehow you would need to have that much force against it to catch the projectile and make it equal to zero to therefore stop.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Yeah, well, I didn't think it would take less force. But I'm not a brick wall.

😏Meme: 11. Physics is Phun.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Eh, I guess…

* * *

😏Meme: The Rules

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Which I won't follow...

Chains: 1.
Chain1: Post
Chain2: Share
Chains: 11
Chain1: random things
Chain2: facts
Chains: about yourself.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: You might be sorry for making this request.

Chains: 2. Answer the
Chain2: awarder’s
Chains: 11 questions
Chain1: your nominator asked you.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: thank goodness I wasn't nominated for one of these dingbat chain awards. Even if I was, I wouldn't play… So don't be too disappointed if you don't get the sort of answers you want.

Chains: 3.
Chain1: Create
Chain2: Ask
Chains: 11 questions
Chain2: of your own
Chain1: for your own nominees.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Nope, Not wasting time trying to come up with questions, and there will be no "nominees".

Chains: 4. Nominate 11
Chain1: different
Chains: bloggers
Chain1: with fewer than 200 followers.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: That actually translates to: "spam 11 bloggers with this obligation-filled chain letter disguising itself as a fun bunch of "Talk all about yourself!" and "You've just won an award!"

bleck! No thanks, no nominations/questions and I don't care who has how few or how many followers, this liebsters and the whole blog award craze needs to die.

Chain1: 5. Notify them and hope they play along.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Nope, no notifies from me, no reblogging this stupid award, no hoping they'll play along, rather, I wish people would cut it out once and for all.

Chains: Facts about you:

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: You won't like them.

1. I mangle chain letters.
2. I don't encourage anyone to participate in viral schemes.
3. I don't consider "http://Chainmanglers.pbworks.com/So+Called+Blog+Awards+Are+Just+Chain+Letters" to be real awards, only chain letters. To get an award, you have to actually do something other than write blogs.
4. I have been abandoned too many times by people who were supposed to be my friends because they'd rather go on spreading chain letters than listen to me when I discourage it - and yes, I do try to be as nice about it as I can.
5. I'm sick of being abandoned by people in favour of their wish to keep letting themselves get pushed around by chain letters.
6. I wish the blog meme craze, especially these awards would die out.
7. I will never pass on to - er, excuse me, "nominate" anyone for a so-called blog award.
8. I have seen more than 11 of the same questions repeated more than 11 times in various survey meme chain letters over the years.
9. If anyone ever inflicts a "blog award" or any sort of blog meme on me and "tags"/"nominates" me on one of my blogs, I won't kudo them or even acknowledge having received the chain on that blog. I will mangle it on Chain manglers instead.
10. One of the quickest ways to make me lose interest in a blog is to post memes and too many quotes from movies, TV shows, celebrities and other famous people, or song lyrics.
11. If you replicate chain letters on your blog and I come across them, I will be annoyed, but you'll never know it unless you happen across it in one of my mangles, and even then you won't know if it was you or somebody else who inflicted the chain on my computer screen, because I won't name names as a rule, unless it is to point out where a meme originates from. I'll give that info if possible.

😏Meme: 1. What is your biggest fear?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Asked, asked again, asked repeatedly, answer still refused.

😏Meme: 2. What is your best quality?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Erm, i'm not exactly in a position to judge that.

😏Meme: 3. What is your favorite magazine?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Any that's interesting to read and not full of gossip and propaganda.

😏Meme: 4. Biggest pet peeve?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Asked and answered...

😏Meme: 5. Do you believe in fate? Karma? Luck? Superstitions?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: You should kinda get the answer to that from the fact I mangle memes.

😏Meme: 6. Lip gloss or lipstick? What shade?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: I don't care as long as it smells good and relieves my chapped lips in winter.

😏Meme: 7. If someone gave you $1000 to spend at a single store in 30 minutes, what store would you choose?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: That all depends on a lot of variables.

😏Meme: 8. How would you classify your style? ie: classic, bohemian, grunge

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Haven't given it much thought. None of the ones you mentioned.

😏Meme: 9. Favorite quote or words of wisdom? Who said it?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Meh.

😏Meme: 10. Favorite guilty pleasure?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: mangling chain letters - and that isn't truly a 'guilty' pleasure, just something I feel must be done, but there are a lot of viral-lovers or people who simply couldn't care less who just wouldn't understand or even bother to try, or they go about it the wrong way, with anti-chains.

😏Meme: 11. What is the one physical quality you would alter about yourself?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Meh.

😏Meme: 2- What is your dream car

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: None.

😏Meme: 3- If you had to live in another country for the next 5 years, where would you live

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: That all depends on so much, I'd have to do a ton of research before deciding, and since that ain't happening, oh skip it, it just plain doesn't matter.

😏Meme: 4- What is the first cd you ever purchased

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: I'm supposed to remember that?

😏Meme: 5- If you could only have one tv station for the next year what tv station would you pick

😏Meme: 7- If your family got asked to be on TLC what would the name of your show be, and what would you be on there for

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: I have absolutely no idea. My family's cool, we're not *cough* reality TV material.

😏Meme: 8- Would you rather you got one horrible haircut, or all your children got 5 horrible haircuts in a row

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: I don't have children. I've had a horrible haircut. It didn't kill me.

😏Meme: 9- Favorite movie EVER and Worst movie you have ever seen

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Can't pick most favourite, I like my favourites for all different things. Worst movie, hmmm. Again, hard to pick. some are really bad because they're just too disturbing, others are infuriatingly stupid, so, no definitive answer on that one either.

😏Meme: 10- Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, which one is your favorite

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: I only got on FB because everybody else I know offline is on it. Twitter, meh. It has its uses, but I'm not so much a 140 character gal. Instagram, meh, that's mostly picture sharing isn't it? It was bought out by FB anyway.

😏Meme: 11- Do you like summer or winter better, and why

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: if you knew me, you'd know the answer. I like them both for different things, but really come alive more during one of them.

😏Meme: 1. Why did you start blogging?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Um didn't I already cover that somewhere?

😏Meme: 2. What are your three favorite blogs?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: None. I don't care if what I like happens to come from a blog, a forum, an online news article etc. So if anyone dares to hit me with one of these "http://Chainmanglers.pbworks.com/So+Called+Blog+Awards+Are+Just+Chain+Letters" they won't end up getting listed as among my favourite blogs.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Why? If I had one, this chain letter wouldn't break it for me.

😏Meme: 9. What is your most prized possession?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: whatever's suitable for the occasion/weather and my mood.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Blogs that discourage and even mangle chain letters but are written by people who hold the same or very similar views on a bunch of other things as I do - so those are very hard to find.

😏Meme: 7. Favourite season and why?

😏Meme: 3. What is your favorite thing to do outside?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Nothing if it's the wrong time of year or just bad weather. everything when the weather is nice enough.

😏Meme: 4. What do you do to relax?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Depends on where I am and what's at my disposal.

😏Meme: 5. How long does it take you to get ready each day?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Ready for what? Depends on if I'm in a hurry or not. Good long time if I just want to sit around and relax before heading out, not long at all if I'm rushing or else just excited/anxious to go somewhere.

😏Meme: 6. What is your favorite thing about your house?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: It's my home, dangit, anywhere else just wouldn't be quite the same. If I could move anywhere else and design my house, well, since you didn't ask that, I won't answer. Not that I'd give much info even if you did ask. :p

😏Meme: 7. What kind of toothpaste do you use?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Stuff I like the taste of that also makes my breath seem the freshest.

😏Meme: 8. If you could live anywhere, where would you live?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: As if anyone really has any choice these days. Anyway, I'm not wasteful, but really, what's it to you?

😏Meme: 10. What are your favorite pair of shoes?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: That really depends, for example, I like my sandals in summer, but prefer my closed-in shoes in winter.

😏Meme: 11. Have you ever broken a bone?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: that depends on what bone you mean. Chicken bones? Fish bones? Human bones? I'll go as far as to say that I've never broken anyone else's bone, though picking a bone with someone is a whole other matter. :p

😏Meme: 1. If you could have any profession (other than what you do right now) what would it be?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Not so sure. There are ups and unexpected downs with everything.

😏Meme: 4. And what about your favorite movie?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Asked and answered, asked and answered……

😏Meme: 5. Pets or no pets? Dog or cat?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: definitely pets. Given the choice between a vicious-tempered cat that tended to scratch and bite, and whizz and crap all over the house, or a well-behaved dog that didn't do those things, I'd take the dog. Given a choice between a well-behaved affectionate dog and a cat fitting the same description, I'd pick the cat. Mean, loud, destructive dog VS nice cuddly well-behaved cat, I'd choose the cat. But I like a lot of other animals too - things that are - well, rather unconventional that people either don't normally think of or haven't heard of. If it's doable, go for it.

😏Meme: 6. Where is the one place you would love to visit/vacation?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Have no idea, there's a lot of new and different appealing things in various places around the world, so anywhere that isn't oppressive toward women and children, or war-torn.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Didn't we already cover that in what I do to relax/wind down?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: I'd have to weigh my options before making that decision.

😏Meme: 11. Do you think it is okay to pair brown with black? What about navy and black?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Why not? Black makes up brown and navy to some extent doesn't it? and, it goes with everything.


😏Meme: 1. What is your favorite thing to write about?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Why and how to mangle chain letters, and writing out the mangles themselves.

😏Meme: 2. What is your typical goal for blogging-daily, weekly, monthly?

😏Meme: 3. How do you find new blogs to read?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Almost always by accident.

😏Meme: 4. What has been your favorite book you have read in the past year?

😏Meme: 5. How do you find time to blog?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: I don't, I just write out an entry every now and then, as explained before.

😏Meme: 6. What brought you to blogging?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: I believe I kinda answered that somewhere above a couple times. Curiosity, wanting to express myself once in a while…

😏Meme: 7. Do you still blog for the reason above?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Yeah sort of. If a new site comes out that has a blogging feature, I'll likely try it out of curiosity.

😏Meme: 8. Have you ever received an award? or been recognized for something?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: As in http://Chainmanglers.pbworks.com/So+Called+Blog+Awards+Are+Just+Chain+Letters? No, thank goodness. As in real awards like what you earn for some achievement offline, yes.

😏Meme: 10. What are two things that have influenced your adult life?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Eh? People and experiences.

😏Meme: 11. What is your favorite day to celebrate?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Depends on when Dec. 24&25 occur, other times it's usually on some weekend day when family can all get together for birthdays and easter, other times I'll celebrate any day I get especially wonderful news or have had a big success and feel like I accomplished a lot.

😏Meme: 1. Has there been a teacher/mentor who has been meaningful in your life? In what way?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Oh, dang, you just had to ask? I can't give a mangle answer this time because I get to put in a good word about someone who is very dear to me. She was the teacher who showed me there really was such thing as a teacher who cared even when she had to be firm, and wasn't there to give out orders and punishments, and didn't lose patience with me even when I lost patience with myself and no doubt put hers to the test. She is one of these people who impacted my life into adulthood, for the better, and we stay in touch even now.

😏Meme: 2. Has there been a special friend who has been meaningful in your life? In what way?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: A few come to mind. One has moved though, to somewhere remote, and we've lost touch, and I miss her. The others, I still keep in contact with, and we were all friends since grade school.

Person B. might have a really nice speaking voice in my opinion, or grate on my ears. Person c might be chatty, person D might be very quiet.

Meme still going in early February 2013.

😏Meme: {1} Are you a reader? If so, when did your love for reading begin and with what book?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Well duh. Though I don't remember what specific book got me into loving reading, sheesh. Even if I knew, I wouldn't tell you.

😏Meme: {2} What is your favorite landscape? Sea, mountains, beach, city?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: How about a coastal city near a mountain range, all of which, by the sea with a beach?

😏Meme: {3} What is your favorite way to travel? Plane, car, bus, boat, train, bike, by foot?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: All depends on where I'm going and how fast I want to get there.

😏Meme: {4} What is your favorite app and why?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Don't know. There are a lot I haven't tried.

😏Meme: {5} What is the one home-cooked meal you turn to when you’re under time pressure?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Whatever is in the fridge or cupboard that appeals and can be eaten right away with little or no preparation.

😏Meme: {6} What is the one thing in your home that must be organized for your sanity?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: The only thing that drives me a bit mental is when my favourite iPod (Nano 3rd gen) gets messed up and plays stuff out of order. But it goes everywhere with me, so isn't specifically something that stays at home. :p

😏Meme: {7} If you could learn any language what would it be and why?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Couldn't decide. It would be neat to know them all, but too long, time-consuming and difficult process for me.

😏Meme: {8} What is the one skill you hope to perfect?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: I have no illusions about that, even if you're the best at something, you can still muck it up sometimes.

😏Meme: {9} Describe your fashion style in three words {e.g. vintage. neutral. soft}.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: If you saw me, you'd probably get some idea.

😏Meme: {10} Are you a morning person, night owl, nap enthusiast, or a survivor with alternating routines?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Little bit of everything.

😏Meme: {11} Fess up. Are you a Downton Abbey fan. If so, what’s your reason for watching?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Oh yeah, I'll watch it sometimes, unless I find something else on at the same time that has my interest more.

😏Meme: 1. Do you believe in the Oxford comma?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Eh? Believe in? Well no, I just may or may not use it - my writing style is a bit inconsistent.

For more about this comma, see here. Interesting. Learn something new all the time.

😏Meme: 2. If you had to paint everything in your house one color, what color would it be?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Bleck, another pointless "If you had to choose only one" question. But since I don't, I'm not even going to waste time musing on it.

😏Meme: 3. When you were a kid what did you want to be when you grew up? Is that what you became?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Somewhat. Let's just say I've had some childhood dreams come true to some extent.

😏Meme: 4. Which hobbit is your favorite hobbit?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: *Grins* I don't know, it's been a long time since I read the book, but I like those little people. They're cute.

😏Meme: 5. At a restaurant are you the person who always orders the same thing or do you try something new each time?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Depends on the restaurant and what I'm hungry for, and how hungry I am for that matter.

😏Meme: 6. If you had to choose between living in an underwater bubble dome or in a moon colony which would you choose?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Dunno. You're isolated from land on Earth either way. Maybe the moon colony since you said it was a colony, which means there would be more people there. You said no such thing about the under-water dome, so I assume I'd be living by myself there. If I'm going to be isolated from Earth, I'd rather be isolated with at least a few other people.

😏Meme: 7. How often do you do laundry? Are you a once a weeker, daily loader, or when I run out of clean clothes type?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Nosy, aren't we? Let's just say whenever I decide it's necessary.

😏Meme: 10. Do you believe cake is a breakfast food? Defend your answer.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Oh heck yes! And I also believe cereal is a good snack food, I'm all for defying convention where food goes.

😏Meme: 11. In your dystopian future which would you rather face: zombies or vampires? Why?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Bleah! Neither. You get consumed either way, whole or in part. I hate dystopias of any stripe. - they usually involve some really screwed up system where mercy, common sense and justice are thrown right out the window.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Thank the blogger for sending me a chain letter? Nothing doing!

😏Meme: 8. What's your favorite holiday and how do you celebrate it?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: If you knew me, you'd know.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: that all depends. I like what I've watched of Trek, and the original Star Wars movie, but sorry, "Anakin" I utterly reject that name for Darth in his young days, it sounds way too much like Anna-kins or Annika. People, what in heck were you thinking when you gave him that girly name!? I can't get past that, so the prequel is out.

😏Meme: 10. If you could only buy from one miniature company from now on, which one would it be?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Well since I'd have no choice because only one company was making them, then it would have to be the one still making them, whichever company it was, and of course, whether or not I'd buy at all would depend entirely on if I wanted the characters or not.

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: Um… My feet because you kinda like need them to run.

😏Meme: 6. What inspired you to start blogging?

😏Meme: 7. What do you love most about blogging?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: That nobody has discovered my blog yet so nobody has hit me with this stupid Liebsters or any other meme directly.

😏Meme: 8. What do you like least about blogging?

🧝‍♀️Ocean Elf: That various platforms are so different, that there are so many out there, I can't decide which to use, so I mostly blog on my Chain-manglers network, and not all that often.
