The Friday Five!

If you...

1. ...owned a restaurant, what kind of food would you serve?

Chocolate and coffee!!

2. ...owned a small store, what kind of merchandise would you sell?

Maybe coffee and coffee pots. Or maybe orchids, epiphytes and tillandsia.

3. ...wrote a book, what genre would it be?

Well, given this:

You're The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy!

by Douglas Adams

Considered by many to be one of the funniest people around, you are quite an entertainer. You've also traveled to the far reaches of what you deem possible, often confused and unsure of yourself. Life continues to jostle you around like a marble, but it's shown you so much of the world that you don't care. Wacky adventures continue to lie ahead. Your favorite number is 42.

Take the Book Quiz
at the Blue Pyramid.

and this:

Which Classic Book Are You?
Book: Homer's The Iliad.
Synopsis: The Iliad is one of the two great epics of Homer, and is typically described as one of the greatest war stories of all time, but to say the Iliad is a war story does not begin to describe the emotional sweep of its action and characters: Achilles, Helen, Hector, and other heroes of Greek myth and history in the tenth and final year of the Greek siege of Troy.
Excerpt: Thus then were the Achaeans hemmed in at their ships, calling out to one another and raising their hands with loud cries every man to heaven. Nestor of Gerene, tower of strength to the Achaeans, lifted up his hands to the starry firmament of heaven, and prayed more fervently than any of them. 'Father Jove,' said he, 'if ever any one in wheat-growing Argos burned you fat thigh-bones of sheep or heifer and prayed that he might return safely home, whereon you bowed your head to him in assent, bear it in mind now, and suffer not the Trojans to triumph thus over the Achaeans.'
Amazon: The Iliad
Which Classic Book Are You?

AND this: (shamelessly re-posted from January)
'Tis a great mystery, but somehow you have come to
belong in Jane Eyre; a random world of love,
kindness, madness, bad luck and lunatic
ex-wives. There really isn't much to say about
the place you belong in. It's your place, and
though it seems far from reality largly due to
how random the events are, you seem to enjoy
it. You belong in a world where not too many
people understand you, and where you can be
somewhat of a recluse.

Which Classic Novel do You Belong In?
brought to you by Quizilla

Whatever the genre, it's clear that the plot line will be heavily influenced by some whacky fates that like to toy with the main character.

4. ...ran a school, what would you teach?

I wish I could teach the whole wide world to understand and appreciate declaratory and restrictive clauses.

5. ...recorded an album, what kind of music would be on it?

Probably bad music. I am not renowned for my musical skills.

Digression: I was going to boast and say "HA HA! I beat Classical Values to quiz day, but I see Eric has been spending time on something a little more serious. Take a gander at Crushing of Dissent. Superb, as usual. I guess I'll just settle for being comic relief.
