Imaginiff...Some Friday Fun

One of our favorite games to play is "imaginiff..." It's a board game with silly questions, where everyone says what they think about the different players. Um, just to clarify, no, this isn't a sponsored post- this is just fun.

You'll get a question like this:

Imaginiff__________ were a dessert. Which would he/she be?
1. Triple Chocolate Tart
2. Apple pie
3. Creme Brulee
4. Fresh fruit
5. Port and cigars
6. Cookies and milk

Everyone picks their answer and then reveals. The players in the majority get a point or move on the board...or something like that. It's been a while since we played. I was always trying to argue my way into getting points and convincing everyone that my answer was the right one- even to the person that the question was about. I don't like to lose.

It's fun and silly and a good way to get to know people. I just found our game as I was trying to work my way through some of this unpacking. I'd love to play with some of my bloggyfriends, but since that's not possible, I decided to do the best that I could with this....

I used random.org to select 10 of you who commented on Wednesday's post and decided to answer a question about you! Random.org picked some of you that I feel like I know well and some of you whom I just met, so this was interesting!

I'll list all the choices that the questions gave and then highlight the one that I picked. This is meant in fun, so I hope that is the way it is taken!

Imaginiff Katina at Peaceful Divas were a motto. Which would she be?
1. pedal to the metal
2. stop and smell the roses
3. take the road less traveled
4. better safe than sorry
5. an eye or an eye, a tooth for a tooth
6. love makes the world go 'round
C'mon "peaceful diva"- this totally fits! Absolutely loved her post this week on feeling inadequate. Awesome stuff.

Imaginiff Simone at Great Fun 4 Kids were traveling in space. How would she feel?
1. proud
2. nauseous
3. terrified
4. bored
5. exhilerated
6. weightless
She's about fun, so I think she'd be thrilled...and maybe a little nauseous. ;)

Imaginiff Evonne at All You Need is Love were a condiment. Which would she be?
1. salt
2. maple syrup
3. steak sauce
4. extra virgin olive oil
5. tabasco sauce
6. vinegar
Because she's a sweetie. And when I think of maple syrup, I think of pancakes and comfort food- and Evonne is a a very down-to-earth person, so this made sense to me.

Imaginiff Mary from The Mommyologist could discover the answer to a great mystery. Which mystery would she choose?
1. What is SPAM?
2. Where do the missing socks go?
3. Sasquatch- fact or fiction?
4. What goes on at Area 51?
5. Why was Stonehenge built?
6. How come I pay more taxes than Bill Gates?
She'd want to solve this weird mystery and then expose it to the world.

Imaginiff Tammy from Tammy's Two Cents were a piece of jewelry. Which would she be?
1. wedding ring
2. inspirational bracelet
3. jeweled crown
4. rolex
5. cubic zirconia
6. tongue piercing
Because she's a friend for life.

Imaginiff Shawna at My Girls were a fashion fad. Which would she be?
1. poodle skirt and saddle shoes
2. leisure suit
3. Victorian corset and gown
4. knickers
5. Jordache jeans
6. toga
She seems fun and girly and like she'd enjoy something on the lighter, fun side.

Imaginiff Rebecca at Unexplained X2 were a tool. Which would she be?
1. sledge hammer
2. pruning shears
3. screwdriver
4. level
5. coctail mixer
6. tonail clippers
This one just jumped out at me b/c I thought "level-headed" and having to keep everything straight with her twins.

Imaginiff Alex at Ma, What's for Dinner had to sing at a karaoke bar. Which song woul she sing?
1. I Love Rock n Roll
2. New York, New York
3. I Will Survive
4. Figaro
5. Oops, I Did It Again
6. Friends in Low Places
For some reason, I could just see her belting this one out. I'd be beside her on stage, singing away...after we'd had enough drinks, of course.

Imaginiff Tami G from Every Day in Gray were something to look through. Which would she be?
1. telescope
2. sunglasses
3. reading glasses
4. binoculars
5. safety goggles
6. rose colored glasses
Because she would want to examine things closely and clearly, to be sure she has the full picture.

Imaginiff Aunt Crazy from Aunt Crazy's Here Y'all wre a crime. Which would she be?
1. disorderly conduct
2. tax evasion
3. littering
4. illegal use of a motor vehicle
5. removal of mattress tags
6. computer hacking
C'mon, she's Aunt Crazy. She'd have to be something crazy and fun!

So, how did I do? Do you agree? If you don't know these bloggers, please go visit some of them and tell them I sent you!

Now, it's your turn- let's use the question from the example: imaginiff Shell(or the person who commented ahead of you, whichever you want to use) were a dessert, which would she be?
1. Triple Chocolate Tart
2. Apple pie
3. Creme Brulee
4. Fresh fruit
5. Port and cigars
6. Cookies and milk

I'm linking up for the All New Friday Follow, since my blog buddy Ian is one of the hosts. Check it out! Oh, and I follow back- if I can find your blog- so please leave me your url if you are new...or even just new-ish.

If Shell were a dessert, she would be... Triple Chocolate tart. Class with some sass! :P This game sounds like lots of fun.

Blogger Vanessa said...

Shell would be cookies and milk -- only because that's one of my all-time favorites, just like you. Yep, I went for the sap, deal with it! ;-)

Blogger Daisygirl said...

Ummm you would totally be creme brulee or cookies and milk!!!!

May 28, 2010 at 12:55 AM  
Blogger Tracie Nall said...

You would definitely be a Triple Chocolate Tart.....I think this could be the best game ever invented!

Blogger Unknown said...

Lol, love this!

May 28, 2010 at 1:08 AM  
Blogger The Mommyologist said...

This was so funny!! I am laughing that you have me pegged for the detective. I would've chosen the Area 51 thing too!

And if you were a dessert, you'd SO be creme brulee, because you are super sweet and a classy lady!

May 28, 2010 at 7:43 AM  
Blogger Cheryl said...

Oh this is tough. I'm going with fresh fruit because it's the most honest desert on the list. I know that I'm going to get pure Shell, in all your various moods, when I drop by. (I would have tried the prior commenter but I don't know her very well.)

May 28, 2010 at 7:57 AM  
Blogger Oka said...

I am going to say Fresh Fruit, because you come as you are...you aren't all dressed up by sugar (lies and deceit)

May 28, 2010 at 8:26 AM  
Blogger Steph said...

That looks like a fun game! I have to check it out.

May 28, 2010 at 8:36 AM  
Blogger Katina said...

Imagine if Oka were a dessert. She would be Apple Pie because of her mini-van swagger, girl next door fun attitude and love for her family!

May 28, 2010 at 8:38 AM  
Blogger Kmama said...

First of all, LOL at the Aunt Crazy one. I would totally pick the same answer!!

Shell would be cookies and milk. Just because. ;-)

Blogger Evonne said...

Aw, you're so sweet. Thank you!

Imaginiff you were a dessert, you would be cookies and milk. They're my favorite and I keep coming back for more.

Have a great weekend!

Blogger Jen said...

Shell, this game seems like so much fun! I'm going to have to try to find it. My friends and I like to have people over and play games! That's what we did for New Year's Eve, actually!

And, to answer your question, I think you'd be fresh fruit because it's the most summery, beachy dessert of the list, and that's how I imagine you. :-)

You'd be fresh fruit. Just cuz you can take it to the beach and munch all day :P

May 28, 2010 at 10:21 AM  
Blogger cheri said...

if you were a dessert, you'd be a creme brulee because i need to crack your exterior to get to the good stuff inside :)

this is so cool!

May 28, 2010 at 11:36 AM  
Blogger Lisa said...

Blogger Jeannie, Jane, Angel, Mommy, etc.. said...

I LOVE this game, though we don't have a lot of people to play it with. I think that you would be Port and Cigars, minus the Cigars.

May 28, 2010 at 12:41 PM  
Blogger Tammy said...

I loved that you picked me as a wedding ring...right on and we will be friends for life!

My hubby, his Best Man, his sister and I sang Friends in Low Places at our reception to all our friends and family. Hilarious. I need to try and find that...it would be a great post.

Imaginiff Shell was on a dessert island she would be the triple chocolate torte because chocolate is my favorite (like her), and she is so darn sweet!

Did I do good??? :)

Blogger Holly Lefevre said...

Cute game...fun post. Love the way you did that!

May 28, 2010 at 2:50 PM  
Blogger One Photo said...

Interesting game - you would have to be creme brulee because it is the most classically simple, fabulous and honest dessert of all (not to mention my all time favorite)

I totally love this game! We play it all the time, especially as ice breakers with new groups. So much fun!

And you're totes chocolate tart. Or maybe that's me.

I love this! Sounds like a good drinking game!

Shell is creme brulee because it's my fave & so is she! :)

May 28, 2010 at 4:59 PM  
Blogger Elena Sonnino said...

This is such a great idea Shell! how fun! I think you would be cookies and milk. Very sweet and yet so good for you. :)

May 28, 2010 at 5:55 PM  
Blogger Sarah at The Stroller Ballet said...

This is a neat idea! Must say, I'll choose the cookies and milk. Not necessarily for any reason besides the fact that I'm hungry right now :)

May 28, 2010 at 7:35 PM  
Blogger BNM said...

This looks like a way fun game! I think I need to stroll through your blog a little more before I can give a definitive answer about what sort of desert you are ;)

P.S. Found your blog via Mrs4444!

What a fun post!

Shell, I think you would be cookies and milk...and I don't have a real good explanation why!

What a fun game! I think that you would be cookies and milk, because what's more fun than cookies and milk? ; )

The one that stood out to me was port and cigars. You seem to me, to be a very down to earth type of girl...I can see us hanging out on my porch drinking a beer or two or three and smoking a stogy...laughing our asses off, just to say we did...
So, I'm curious which is your pick on yourself?

Triple Chocolate no doubt at all

Thanks for flying with us on the new Friday Follow. I've been following you for a while though.
