Welcome to 12 Bloggerz … the monthly Round-up!
12 Bloggerz as a series has been running since May 2020 and including December we have had a total of 8 Games.
The Round Up of each monthly game displays some of the best answers from all of the readers who responded – be these strange, unusual, funny, entertaining or indeed provocative and leading to further discussions if not questions further on in other games.
We now have a total of 41 assorted Bloggerz emoticons!
So let’s have a look at the Round Up for the December game – Part 2
|A Guy Called Bloke|
|So let’s have a look at the questions posed in the December 2020 episode shall we and some of the answers provided from our 14 responders…..|
To the questions :
Has anything shocked you in the last 6 weeks to the point where you have gasped out aloud – if so what was it and if not, then when was the last time you were terribly shocked by something?
|Angie of King Ben’s Grandma||I was shocked on Monday when Ben tried a new food, but it didn’t make me gasp. I think I gasped with shock when I found out Paula doesnt like mint & chocolate together. No Girl Scout Thin Mint Cookies, no York Peppermint Patties… I’m still trying to wrap my head around that one.|
|Lisa of The Road Back to Life||Only a movie Tomahawk to the chest. Hate blood and guts…|
|Paula of Light Motifs II||Yes, last week at my daughter’s. We thought we saw a giant bug on her wall, but it was just two spiders tangled up!|
|Ian Kay of Moon Is Rising||The thing that shocks me these days is not feeling much difference in time passing between the last 6 weeks and the last 6 days. Where does the time go? And has anyone looked for it down the back of the sofa?|
|Susan Marie of The Abject Muse||Last week one of my cats coughed up a hairball nearly the size of Rhode Island. Yikes!|
If you have one what is your signature dish and if you don’t have one what would you love to be able to cook wonderfully well?
|Jennifer of Paperkutz||My signature dish is potato casserole. It is a favorite or anyone who tries it.|
|Sara of Relax, It’s all Write||I used to have a few, before dating a self-proclaimed chef. Now, I get to sit back, relax, and await the nightly gourmet feast.|
|Lauren of ISS Attitude of Gratitude||Spinach artichoke dip. 10,000,000 calories but oh so good.|
|Ian Kay of Moon Is Rising||I do enjoy cooking and have several dishes I could rustle up from memory. If I were to pick one it would be my fish pie. I prepare creamed leeks for the gravy, made with vegetable stock, fish sauce, fresh lemon juice and tarragon. I use smoked cod or haddock fillets and top it with fluffy mashed potatoes which I sprinkle lightly with parmesan and cheddar cheeses and freshly ground black pepper.|
|Melanie of Sparks from a combustible mind||I don’t know if it’s a ‘signature” dish; I doubt anyone would pay me to make it for them, but I do a great chile verde (enchilada, burrito or just over rice). I also do a wonderful rice dish with cheese and green chilies, which I’ve gotten compliments on. It’s a variation of an old friend’s recipe. In fact, my ‘gringo’ Mexican food is pretty amazing whatever I make.|
Strangest or wildest place you ever had the most amazing sex in or on maybe, even around …….?
|Angie of King Ben’s Grandma||I’ve had sex in some strange places… the 50 yard line of my High School Football field, on top of a huge boulder with a helicopter circling overhead, light on… in the rafters of a garage…|
|Lisa of The Road Back to Life||Long ago in a land far, far, away… Somewhere in a rest stop in NY.|
|Paula of Light Motifs II||My imagination…|
|Ian Kay of Moon Is Rising||For me, the two are mutually exclusive. The most amazing has been in a mundane double bed. The most unusual has been in a train, though not a sleeper, and on another occasion, in a field of rippling wheat. Both probably look better in print than in reality.|
Incidentally, while travelling through Thailand, we ended up at a hotel in Bangkok without a reservation. They showed us to an isolated room across a courtyard, away from the main hotel. The decor inside was very red and over the bed was a huge circular mirror on the ceiling. We didn’t have sex for fear of hidden cameras.
|Di of Pensitivity 101||Not telling, but the funniest was the inside cabin of the overnight ferry to Holland on our honeymoon. It had bunk beds and we couldn’t do very much for laughing, banging elbows, heads or bums.|
Why is it healthy to flirt with people you have no intention of doing the naughty with and how often do you flirt with people you know or even don’t know?
|Angie of King Ben’s Grandma||I flirt all the time. It’s all in good fun. I’ve had a few people think I was serious so I try to make sure the other person knows it’s just play… not foreplay.|
|Lisa of The Road Back to Life||Flirting is healthy, but not with others when in a committed relationship (my Puritan upbringing). I have been known to flirt…|
|Paula of Light Motifs II||Because flirting can be creative and fun. I don’t do much of it these days though.|
|Trisha of Learning Life||I am a HUGE flirt… my personality is flirty. I don’t know how not to be? But I am flirty with everyone. Doesn’t matter who they are – I am flirty. Just how is.|
|Ian Kay of Moon Is Rising||I don’t think I’ve ever done that without hoping for sex. Isn’t it like going in to the office at the weekend and not expecting to get paid?|
|Susan Marie of The Abject Muse||Ummm…it’s not healthy, in my opinion. Too many things could go sideways.|
|Sadje of Keep it Alive||No idea about it being healthy or not. I don’t flirt.|
Can you list 9 things that you can ride in, on or with?
|Car||Train||With a Stranger||Bus|
|Horse||Buggy||Into the Unknown||Trolley|
|Motorcycle||Ferris Wheel||Ride the weight of your decision||Scooter|
|4 Wheeler||Dune Buggy||Ride your regret||Surfboard|
|Roller Coaster||Golf Cart||They would mostly be naughty, so no.||Camel|

|Roller Skates||That’s too many things for me to ride lol||Donkey||The Waves|
|Shotgun||The Storm Out||A Biker Gang||Unicycle|
|Charon the ferryman of Hades to get across the River Styx||I could ride inside the belly of a whale||I could let me money ride and try to double my gain.||I could jump out of a perfectly good plane and ride in a parachute|
Are you on Santa’s Naughty or Good list and if you are – what have you asked for from either?
|I’m always on Santa’s “Nice” list – I’m never naughty, despite what you may have read||Hmm good. I have only asked for a specific type of watercolors||Nice – …I’m pretty sure, anyway.|
|I am definitely on the naughty list. Fur-lined handcuffs would be nice, Santa baby.||Good List. I would like socks, thank you!||I’m on the good list obviously. I’m never naughty – simple Christmas wish really, for there to not to be any arguments or upset just for one Christmas day. Sadly, it seems to be a tradition in my family.|
|I think it’s against the rules for a cultural Jew to be on Santa’s list. LOL||I am on the good list – always – what did I ask for? I don’t really ask for things ? If you know me you already know what I would love. I love perfumes, and lotions and pretty things – I am girly… anything girly||What do you mean?! I am Santa! (although lately I’ve been retired.)|
|I have a door plaque that says I’ve been ‘Nice’ on one side and ‘Naughty but I can explain’ on the other. I haven’t asked for anything because I can’t think of anything I want!||Neither. I’m Jewish.||I’m probably on his ‘somewhere in the middle of both” list. I haven’t asked. Santa is old. And even being magical, I BET he’d be potentially susceptible to that damned virus; if not, he’s an excellent carrier. All those other places he visits! Shocking.|
|I haven’t seen which list I am on, but I could use a new pair of slippers.||Probably on the middle list and as to what l want …..oooooooh,||I am always on the nice list but sadly I don’t think that Santa exists!|
My thanks to all participants as always and special thanks to the readers who took part ….. but also, a Christmas stocking gift of 20 Happy Points to you all!!
