there’s a spectrum of dorkery

If you had to chose the worst song ever composed, what would it be?

What would the best song be?

If you had to keep only one home appliance, which would it be?

If you could have lived during one period of time in past history, when and where would it be?

What colour describes you most accurately?

If you could, in retrospect, change one thing about your childhood, what would it be?

    Black Eyed Peas – My Humps – by a long mile

    Hmmm… best is much tougher…. maybe Pete Seeger – Where Have All the Flowers Gone or Bob Dylan – Don’t Think Twice (It’s All Right)

    Definitely the Refrigerator

    England – The Victorian Era


    My parents would have moved to Austria instead of Arizona when they had the chance

  2. I shouldn’t have asked the worst song, that’ll be stuck in my head now. New music, quick!

    I’d have to agree on the Dylan song. In my top 5 all time favourites.

    I was thinking microwave, but yours is much more practical.

    I recall you mentioning that before. Hard to believe they would have picked AZ. I wonder why.

  3. I can’t dwell too long on these questions or, being the quintessential Libra who has to consider every angle, my head would explode. Therefore, quick reaction answers only.

    Afternoon Delight
    Let Down
    Fridge (but considering changing that to microwave in winter)
    Bedrock, during the Flintstones epoc
    Increased appreciation

  4. Worse song- Baby, Justin Bieber (I know it’s fashionable to hate on him, and I hate to be fashionable but…)

    Best composed song- Solsbury Hill, Peter Gabriel (My favourite song is actually Marley’s Redemption Song, but Solsbury Hill is up there for me and when my wife, who actually plays music unlike me, points out that it’s in 7/4 time and that’s apparently impressive, I have to concede it’s probably better composed as a whole package).

    Is a laptop an appliance? If not, I’ll go with the refrigerator, too.

    Early 19th century France. All those bohemians.


    Out of respect for a certain individual, though I barely feel I owe it, I’ll decline to answer that last one.

  5. Barb: I really should not have asked the worst song question. I can that scene from Anchorman in my head now. ;)

    In stark contrast to my Jetsons era.

    John: I have never heard a Bieber song…and I’d kind of like to keep it that way!

    It’s a good song, and I didn’t know about the timing either.

    I wouldn’t call a laptop an alliance…

    Interesting both you and Barb chose grey – I wouldn’t peg either of you as that colour.

  6. Yeah, I only noticed Barb’s “grey” answer after I’d done mine– we were apparently writing our responses at the same time. But that’s hardly surprising for us greys. I wrestled with it, but I picked it as the compromise between black and white. But then, I wish it was brighter.

    McArthur Park..A song about a cake…arrrgggh

    And It Stoned Me or Margaritaville

    I agree on fridge

    Maybe the 20’s and 30’s and I’d get to be an adventurer going to India or Africa or flying the Pan Am Clipper to Hawaii or see what Paris and Berlin and other places were like

    I’m going to have to go with grey too, something that slides by unoticed as much as possible

    Would have liked to realize how hard my parents worked for what we had and not made them feel like it wasn’t enough.

  8. John: Considering grey is made from two non colours, its quite a large spectrum, as other colours need to be added to make it up. You could be a warm grey…there is a huge difference between that and a cool grey.

    Kelly: I think the fridge is a good choice. Quite practical.

    That’d be an interesting time period for sure, especially the 1920s.
