The Blogger Games – Week 4

Welcome to Week 4 of The Blogger Games! The competition is heating up and we don’t have any air conditioning. Before getting into this week’s questions about all things Entertainment, let’s look back at last week and see who solidified their spot on the podium.

WEEK 3 – PREFERENCES

Competitors: T, Ben, Aaron, Venus, Monty, rebbit7, Reid

1. Which way do I like the toilet paper roll to hang?
A) Over
B) Under

Correct: Reid

I’m not a monster, okay. If the toilet roll were to be over, I wouldn’t feel the need to switch it to under. It’s fine. However, I do prefer it under and put it that way when the roll finishes. When it’s over, I feel like it’s a bit too intrusive. It’s like when you enter a store and a sales representative asks you right away if you need help. They’re just doing their job, but let me breathe for a second. Toilet roll under lets me breathe.

2. Sandwiches taste better when they are…
A) Not Cut
B) Cut Diagonally

Correct: T, Ben, Aaron, Venus, Monty, rebbit7, Reid

I normally eat sandwiches on bagels or buns, but if it’s on two pieces of bread (like a grilled cheese), then it’s getting cut on a diagonal. There is more sandwich when you cut it that way.

3. When it comes to watching shows on TV, do I like to watch them…
A) Live
B) Later (Recorded)

Correct: Ben, Aaron, rebbit7, Reid

Sports are the only thing I watch live. Every TV show is taped (I still call it “taped”, even though I put “recorded” in the question), so I can watch it later and skip commercials. Sometimes, I’ll start an 8PM show at 8:20PM because by then, I’ll be able to start from the beginning and be done by 9 without watching any commercials.

4. Would I rather…
A) Stay Up Late
B) Wake Up Early

Correct: T, Aaron, Venus, rebbit7, Reid

I can wake up early if/when I have to. I enjoy staying up late because I can get things done without getting distracted…like this post.

5. Though I like both, which fries do I like more?
A) Wendy’s
B) McDonald’s

Correct: rebbit7

I love McDonald’s fries, but Wendy’s fries get the very slight edge.

6. I like to sleep on my…
A) Side
B) Back
C) Stomach

Correct: T, Ben

I’ll start off on my side and after a few minutes, I’ll transition to my stomach as if to tell body, “Okay, you can fall asleep now.”

7. When drinking from a small milk carton, do I…
A) Use A Straw
B) Not Use A Straw

Correct: Ben, Venus

I’ve always used a straw. I have tried it without a straw and the texture of the carton is just not…good. This is just a Paul thing, I’m sure.

8. I prefer a desk chair…
A) Without Arm Rests
B) With Arm Rests

Correct: T, Ben, Aaron, Venus, rebbit7, Reid

My elbows have to rest somewhere when I’m not typing.

It’s bad enough I don’t know what to do with my arms when I sleep, but if I also don’t know where to put them while sitting at a desk…that’s just too much.

9. Which do I prefer on my feet in the summer?
A) Shoes
B) Sandals

Correct: T, Venus, rebbit7

I’m not a sandals guy, sorry.

10. Which type of book do I enjoy more?
A) Fiction
B) Non-Fiction

Correct: T, Ben, Aaron, Monty, rebbit7

As a kid, I would’ve said Fiction. As an adult, I enjoy Non-Fiction a bit more. I like getting the behind-the-scenes story on why people are the way that they are.

Congratulations to our third gold medallist in three weeks: rebbit7! Very good job! T keeps her medal streak alive with a silver, while Sir Ben of Meerkovia gets on the medal table with a silver as well!

There is no bronze medal because there were two silvers.

    Although less perfect this week I’ve kept my “clean” record for the medal count! 加油 (literally “give gas”; figuratively “go for it”) for the next round as I feel I’ve got to keep my streak going.

      You’ve put yourself in a win-win situation now where you can either keep your clean streak and get praised for that, or sneak out a medal and also receive praise. You’re a smart one.
