Looks Like Trouble- Tagged

adventure pack

I made my own adventure pack, just in case. I use it in case of danger. Click the image to learn more

by Jonathan Hilton

I thought, “This looks like trouble.” When I saw this tag game going around. I want to participate and yet I have this daily writing prompt to take care of because I am committed. When I was tagged by the illustrious DJMatticus I had no choice to respond. I don’t have time for two posts today, what am I going to do.   (Visit Matticus Kingdom HERE)

Then the trouble continued as I was tagged by the wonderful Kim of Tanquil Dreams, and since I write on every post she makes, I have no choice but to answer her questions as well. It really looked like trouble, trying to answer all of those questions.  (Kim at Tranquil Dreams HERE!)

Being flexible in my actions and as dexterous as a cat, my solution took away any trouble I had, combine the two into one grand and exciting post that will inform and entertain all that come this way today, tomorrow or next week.

The rules of this game:

- The Rules -
1. Post these rules.
2. Post a photo of yourself and 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/twitter and let them know they have been tagged.

Note*********There is a post coming later to describe my new social demographic that I created this morning, but suffice it to say, we make our own rules so I am doing what I want in the case of entertainment. I am tagging everyone in the world, everyone in the galaxy, everyone who has ever lived.  If you know my philosophy, either you will answer some questions or you will keep them to yourself. I will love you no matter what you decide to do.  Free will, baby  enjoy it!!

No idea. I have Netflix.

Kim of Tranquil Dreams

Following are Matt’s Questions

My questions for the unlucky few I just tagged:
1) What does “inconceivable” mean to you?

That what you are seeing can’t possibly be happening. but it really doesn’t matter because when I hear that word I think of the Princess Bride and many quotes enter my head.

no more rhyming now, I mean it!” , “Anybody want a peanut?

You seem a decent fellow, I hate to kill you.     You seem a decent fellow, I hate to die.

On and on it goes!

2) Have you ever had fun storming a castle?  If yes, please elaborate.

No, because I was unfortunately caught without a Holocaust Cloak.
3) Can you name the three terrors of the Fire Swamp?

1. Bursts of fire, they make a popping sound before they ignite, easily avoided.

2. Lightning sands- must be avoided

3. R.O.U.S. – Rodents of unusual size?  I don’t think they exist.

4) If you were named “Buttercup” would you keep that as a name or change it once you could legally do so?

Yes I believe I would.
5) Have you ever been walking around and just happened upon four white horses?

This ironically happened to me today and I thought, there are four of us, if you count the lady. hey lady!  So it worked out wonderfully. RIP Andre the Giant
6) If you could pick new actors to play Inigo and Fezzick, who would you pick?

Antonio Banderas to play Inigo and The Rock to play Fezzick. He really isn’t a giant but with today’s technology it would be good. He could layeth the smacketh down on the castle.

7) Have you ever pondered if you would make a good Dread Pirate Roberts?

I have, in fact I have been thinking of a career change. All you have to do is never make exceptions because once you do, its nothing but work, work, work.
8) Do you prefer your magic pills coated in chocolate or vanilla?

Chocolate, they always go down smoother, you just have to wait 30 minutes before you go in the water.
9) Do you have a wheelbarrow or a cloak?

As I mentioned before no cloak so I guess that leaves a wheelbarrow to help me find the tourture chamber where the man in black is being held captive.
10) Have you ever said “As you wish,” and really meant “I love you?”

Not once, but I think this is a practice I am going to start.
11) What could quite possibly be the greatest movie ever made?

The Princess Bride could be the greatest movie ever made. Either that or A few Good Men, I only included that for Matt because it didn’t make his list. I’m difficult like that.

      Love the fact that you answered my questions in the comment. I am going to add that on the end so others will do it as well! 5’3″ isn’t too short. I really liked the answers!! Thank you for sharing and tagging me in the first place.

          You are a giant to me, because of your soul and personality! Who cares about height anyway? Well unless I need that jar off the top shelf. :-)

    Banderas and The Rock are perfect!!!!

    1. What is a hipster? – I don’t have a clue. Is Jonathan Hilton a hipster? Is a hipster one of those “kids” that wears skinny jeans and listens to music noone else has ever heard of?

    2. Are you a hipster? (if you answer yes, you clearly aren’t, if no then maybe you are.) – Yes. Yes, I am.

    3. Who is your hero? – … my dad… I don’t know, that’s a tough one. Too many good people in my life. I guess since Kim is your favorite superhero that’s good enough in my book. Yeah, let’s go with that. Kim @ Tranquil Dreams is my hero.

    4. Which planet do you like the best and why? – Earth – because it provides me with what I need to live.

    5. What president of the United States do you admire the most excluding Lincoln, Roosevelt and Washington? – Reagan.

    6. If you were in charge of the world for a day what is the first thing you would do? – Build myself a home in Maine… Oh, is that too selfish? I’d delegate most of my power to Jonathan Hilton who seems to have his head screwed on fairly well and would make much better decisions than I could.

    7. Describe your Mental image of the state of Maine in two sentences. – lighthouses, trees

    8. Are you tall or short? Explain your answer. – tall: 6′ 1″ / while that isn’t very tall, historically it is still a tall height

    9. If you were a car, what kind of car would you be? Explain. – truck; dependable, likes to be useful, and good for multiple purposes

    10. Why is love important to you? – it makes the world go ’round

    11. Aren’t you glad you have answered all of these questions. – Yep! :-D

      I did laugh out loud when I read about having my head screwed on straight. I also pictured you shorter. No idea why but that is pretty good. I was tentative at doing this at first but have enjoyed it thoroughly so thank you for tagging me. Yes hipsters apparently are these “kids” I am too old to be a hipster according to wikipedia. They drink Pabst Blue Ribbon beer, shop at thrift shops and ride bikes. That is my general understanding, I do not know any but it seems like a different movement. There is a video I watched called the thrift shop or something like that, It explains all about it. Drops the f-bomb a few times too. So there is that. Thank you so much for answering my questions. I hope others do too. :-)

      I got the car right! and the metric stuff too, because we don’t get that here, feet and inches. Too funny. The moon my friend is not a planet. but I will let it slide because I like you! That was fun. I think I did pretty well.

        1. Jon

          I don’t know how tall your are, I am 6 feet tall. or about two meters I think. a foot is made up of 12 inches. The funny part seriously was that I had written Pluto down as your planet and wrote, Pluto no not a planet then Mercury because it’s warm there. I was closer than I knew!

          Reply
  5. Purnimodo

    Ah toink.. Pluto is no longer considered a planet. Well then Mercury it is :) You get the sunglasses I’ll bring the cocktails!

    I’m 5 feet and 4.9 Inches. Tiny ;)

    You were indeed closer than I thought!!
