Because I am too lazy and/or busy for real content right now

A meme!

I have seen Craig and Schmutzie¹ do slightly different versions of this meme (that's a fascinating thing about memes - how they can mutate slightly as they spread around the blogosphere), and I've adopted Schmutzie's list of questions. It's fascinating to try to guess the answers to the questions that people gave that led to the pictures they selected. I will answer any questions you have, but I think it's fun to speculate and guess first!

The concept:
1. Type your answer to each of the questions below into Flickr Search.
2. Using only the first page of results, pick one image.
3. Copy and paste each of the URLs for the images into Big Huge Lab's Mosaic Maker to create a mosaic of the picture answers.

The questions:
1. What is your first name?
2. What is your favorite food right now?
3. What high school did you go to?
4. What is your favorite color?
5. Who is your celebrity crush?
6. What is your favourite drink?
7. What is your dream vacation?
8. What is your favourite dessert?
9. What do you want to be when you grow up?
10. What do you love most in life?
11. What is one word that describes you?
12. What is your flickr name?

As content filler goes, this isn't a bad way to do it. I did.

Aw heck, Schmutzie! You are always updating! You don't even need filler like the rest of us! :)

One word that describes you is: "a dog eating watermelon"?

Also that Internet & Tacos stand is the most brilliant thing I've ever seen.

I'm gonna play, too. Thanks for the idea!

Yes. I am a dog eating watermelon. No, actually, it was an adjective that - in this case - described the dog's eating style.

I was so excited to see the Internet & Tacos picture! I'd been all ready to settle for some other picture and that was just lovely.

This is awesome! And I love the mosaic. It's like a little tile of you!

I did this today, too! I agree: it's fun to try to guess what word brought up what picture. Mainly I am just bothered by how many people's celebrity crushes I don't recognize.

And your #10 cracked me up. :-)

At one point I incorrectly matched the questions and picture and I thought that you wanted to be ice cream when you grow up.

gravatar srah - June 5, 2008 - 9:31 PM -

@Stefanie - #10 was such a lucky find!

@Cherri - Now I DO want to be ice cream when I grow up!

Flickr is awesome.

I am interested in doing this, but do you have to have a flikr account? Currently I do not have one. You know, maybe I should use this as an excuse TO get one....quit fighting the crowd on this one.

gravatar srah - June 11, 2008 - 1:56 PM -

You don't, although you'd have to come up with a new question for #12 (or you might get some results from typing "I don't have one.")

But yes, you should join us.
