Three down, two to go...

This is for my first player, the lovely, the delightful, the sweet and sassy Lois Lane! If you haven’t had the chance to read her yet, she is a true riot. Full of great emotion, especially humor, and not afraid to spill her embarrassing stories.

1. Random: Kind, loyal, protective, great sense of humor

2. I’ll tell you what song or movie reminds me of you:
Song: American Pie (Don McLean) – very American, more sensible and hip in the way America was back in those days – not the outrageous "hip" mother trying to be a teen again crap that is out there today.
Movie: E.T. (Your sometimes chaotic yet always close-knit household reminds me of that family – of course Mr. Lane is in the picture at your house.)

3. I’ll pick a color/flavor of jello to wrestle with you in. Since I’m not into jello wrestling, this is a hypothetical question:
Cherry b/c you are sweet and down-to-earth like cherry pie.

4. I’ll say something that only makes sense to you and me:
Overalls and spooning.

5. I’ll tell you my first memory of you:
I can’t remember when I came across you first but my first memory of you was the really nice comments that you left on my blog when I first started blogging, even the one about me being an aspiring romance writer and you not liking romance novels but that you liked me just fine anyway - LOL! “You had me from hello” and I’ve been so happy that you’ve been my blogfriend ever since. You are a real treasure!

6. I’ll tell you what animal you remind me of:
You are a turtle. A turtle symbolizes love, protection/protectiveness, and grounding – as in the grounding influence that you are for your family.

7. I’ll ask you something I’ve always wondered about you:
When was the last time you cut your hair? It’s soooo long and...I remember your public restroom story. ROFLMAO!!!
=============================================
Next up is the warm, the witty, the distinguished Captain Picard. A frequent visitor to Nic’s Place from a distant galaxy, Captain Picard has always been nothing but gracious, kind and encouraging. A real great blogfriend to have! Captain Picard’s blog is a highly entertaining peek into the life of a harassed and beleaguered Starship captain in the 24th century. You definitely won’t want to miss out on the fun there!

1. Random: Encouraging, champion, stoic, hidden mischief

2. I’ll tell you what song or movie reminds me of you:
Song: Unchained Melody (Cyndi Lauper’s version). The lyrics remind me of the feelings you have for Bev. Feelings you will only admit to yourself, alone in your quarters, in the dark of night after having some good brandy.
Movie: Close Encounters of the Third Kind. That is your life, you seek to make contact with new, emerging and undiscovered civilizations.

3. I’ll pick a color/flavor of jello to wrestle with you in. Since I’m not into jello wrestling, this is a hypothetical question:
Since Earle Gray doesn’t make a jello flavor, I’m going to have to go with Sparkling Grape (made by adding ginger ale instead of water). You have hidden depth and many facets to you that are only shown under the right light. It is a surprising and welcome treat.

4. I’ll say something that only makes sense to you and me:
Beware of wearing your red shirt on your initial visit to a planet

5. I’ll tell you my first memory of you:
I found you through a comment you had made on Master Yoda’s blog and followed the link. There were only a few posts up as the blog had just started but I was amused and intrigued by the humor in the posts and kept coming back.

6. I’ll tell you what animal you remind me of:
Deer b/c it denotes Gentleness, Caring, Sensitivity, Peace and Wisdom

7. I’ll ask you something I’ve always wondered about you:
When will you ever admit to Bev how you feel? It’s so obvious to everyone. It’s almost a tangible entity, those sparks between the two of you.
==========================================
The third brave soul is a strong one for truth, justice and the REAL American way. Ken from Oblogatory Anecdotes is a real sharp guy with well-spoken opinions. He has articles up there from a conservative viewpoint regarding issues that you don’t see on many blogs unless they’re liberal ones defending their side of things. If you’re looking for the conservative viewpoint on the political, current events side of things that is well-reasoned, this is one of the best places to go.

1. Random: Patriotic, strong beliefs, family man, truth teller

2. I’ll tell you what song or movie reminds me of you:
Song: God Bless America. Reminds me of small-town, patriotic celebrations where everyone looks out for one another and is a close-knit community. You strike me as that kind of a person.
Movie: A Few Good Men. Just like the JAG team in that movie, you search for the truth and then put it out there.

3. I’ll pick a color/flavor of jello to wrestle with you in. Since I’m not into jello wrestling, this is a hypothetical question:
Strawberry. Backyard bbq’s, children chasing fireflies, sparklers, sunsets on clear summer nights. That’s what strawberry jello reminds me of and your blog does too.

4. I’ll say something that only makes sense to you and me:
RE: Cornered Dog, etc. - Support makes a difference.

5. I’ll tell you my first memory of you:
I’m not sure how I first found you, but it’s only been about 4 weeks. I know though that when I read my first post of yours that I was very happy to find an intelligent mind out there who was blogging issues from my POV. It seems to be an infrequent phenomenon in comparison to the left-wing opinions out there in the blogsphere.

6. I’ll tell you what animal you remind me of:
Ant – because an ant denotes teamwork, patience, action, and community.

7. I’ll ask you something I’ve always wondered about you:
Hmmm, that’s a toughie. If you could make America exactly how you wanted her to be, what would you make different and why?
==========================================
Who else is ready to play? I can take two more players. See, isn't this fun!

Thank you so much! Great answers and you had me at Hello too. :)
The last time I cut my hair was a few days ago, which will be coming soon to a blog near you. It is the infamous Barbie Head Lois post that every one seems to be talking about. The hair cut before that was over five years ago, which is why my hair was able to tickle my bum. LOL!
Thanks again sweetie!

Thank you so much nic. Your such a great cyber buddy. Also I must thank you for the correction in my last post. The scripture I cited is John 15:13 I should have accually consulted the scriptures instead of doing a search on the internet.

About your question how I would like the country to be? I will think about it and get back to you.

I thought you were already a "Fire Bug" too! I added you. Sorry for taking so long. :)
Have a great weekend and thank you again for such sweet words.
Lois Lane

These are wonderful answers, Nic. Your are a great blog friend. "Unchained Melody" is a great song, although the Righteous Brothers version is the definative one. Your answers were very accurate. Well done on managing bto identify me through these.

I've just added your summation on to my blog; it's in the post below the TWQ.
